In yet one more in a long list of savage acts, Syrian “rebels” (more accurately labeled “death squads”) have publicly executed a 15-year-old boy in front of his parents and his siblings for allegedly “blaspheming” the prophet Mohammed.
Coffee vender Mohammed al-Qatta was captured and killed for stating that he would not extend credit to an unspecified individual “Even if Muhammad comes down,” a common phrase used by many Syrians. This statement was construed as blasphemy by the death squads who are portrayed as “freedom fighters” by the Western media and government agencies supporting them.
Upon making the statement, al-Qatta was abducted by the death squads and tortured before being publicly executed. UPI reports “When they brought him back, the teen's head was covered with his shirt and his body bore marks of whipping.”
The death squads then paraded the young man in front of a crowd that included his parents and siblings, announcing that “cursing the prophet” is a horrible act and others committing such crimes will be punished. The death squads then shot the boy once in the mouth and once in the neck.
The Huffington Post writes that the murderers are believed to be “members of a rebel group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, formerly known as the al-Nusra Front. “
Even the pseudo-organizations like the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights have found it impossible to obfuscate the animalistic brutality of the death squads in this latest act. Indeed, death squad supporter Rami Abdul Rahman has been forced to admit the savagery of groups he has supported for at least the last two years.
What is more interesting is that Rahman has been forced to admit that the killers were likely foreign fighters – not native Syrians fighting for freedom against their oppressive government, as Western audiences have been propagandized to believe.
"They spoke classical Arabic, not Syrian dialect," he said.
"They shot the boy twice, once in the mouth, another in his neck, in front of his mother, his father and his siblings," he added.
Ironically, it is reported that the 15-year old victim had taken part in protests against the government prior to his “blasphemous” remark, thus proving that the death squads which are now being mopped up by Assad’s forces, are incapable of even the slightest cognitive functions that allow for coexistence.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has criticized the killing as “criminal” and as a “gift to the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.”
"This kind of criminality is exactly what makes people in Syria fear the fall of the regime," Abdel Rahman said.
Yet this kind of criminality and “gifts” to Assad have been taking place ever since the invasion of foreign-backed death squads into Syria two years ago when those efforts began in earnest. Indeed, Rahman and his Observatory have been supporting the death squads throughout the entire ordeal in full knowledge of the atrocities being committed against the Syrian people.
Rahman and his organization are clearly aware of videos showing the death squads machine gunning captives, beheading prisoners (see here and here), and forcing young children to behead them. I, myself, have written an article dealing with reports regarding the death squad’s hanging of a young child after murdering his family in front of him. One can also view the videos of the death squad members beating and humiliating the famous elderly “Yellow Man” in Aleppo.
Indeed, the videos of the torture of prisoners in the hands of the death squads are legion. One need only type the relevant keywords into a YouTube search engine to be greeted with generous results.
Likewise, a number of chemical attacks directed against innocent civilians on the part of the Syrian death squads have taken place over recent months.
Although the mainstream media and Western governments have attempted to blame these attacks (and every other atrocity) on the Assad government, each and every one has, in fact, turned out to be the work of the Syrian death squads, who are themselves funded by Western governments, intelligence agencies, and NATO command structures.
Neither Rahman or any other individual or organization supporting the “rebels” could have overlooked the recent video of Syrian “rebel” leader Abu Sakkar cutting out the heart of a Syrian soldier and then biting it for the camera. Shortly before biting the man’s heart, Sakkar states to the camera “I swear to God we will eat your hearts and your livers.”
The execution of Mohammed al-Qatta, while tragic, merely stands as one more act of savagery on the part of the Syrian death squads. So long as the Western world continues to support them, it is unlikely to be the last.
