At least 350 Christians are confirmed hostages currently being held by the Muslim Terrorists. A future ‘Mass Execution’ is feared

ROME – The Islamic State (ISIS) has murdered 15 of the Christians it took hostage in northeastern Syria earlier this week.
The news was given by Archimandrite Emanuel Youkhana to the Catholic organization Aid to the Church in Need on Thursday. ”Many of them,” he said, ”were defending their villages and their families.” One woman was beheaded in the village Tel Hormidz and two men were shot to death. There is no information at the moment on how the other 12 were killed. Youkhana added that the number of those known to have been taken hostage had risen to about 350. In addition to the hundreds previously reported, some 80 inhabitants from the Tel Jazira village, 21 from Tel Gouran, 5 from Tel Feytha and 3 from Qabir Shamiya have been taken. Almost all are being held in the Sunni Muslim village Um Al-Masamier.
Another 51 families, ”with around five members each”, Youkhana said, have been taken hostage in Tel Shamiram, but it is not known where they are being held. ”They have probably been taken to the ISIS-controlled Mount Abdul Aziz region,” Youkhana said. One source has said that a mass execution is being planned for Friday, February 27, in the mosque of Bab Alfaraj, a Sunni village in the area. There has been no confirmation of the news.
No inhabitants are left in the 35 Assyrian Christian villages. Those who managed to escape did so towards Hasaka or Qamishli.
”There are 800 displaced families in Hasaka and 175 in Qamishli,” Youkhana said.

A video has emerged that shows 3 Syrian soldiers held captive by ISIS. The soldiers are seated with their hands tied behind their backs, as the reverberated echo of an Islamic cleric reads out ‘alleged’ charges against them. Obviously, an incitement to violence, as the crowd of blood-thirsty Muslim ISIS supporters move in and surround the soldiers.
As the reading of the charges commence, the angry mob, fueled on anger and Islam, begin to beat, kick and stomp the 3 young Syrian men.
And if this is not enough, the young men are chained to the back of motorcycles and dragged through the city of Raqqa, with camera men in trail, of course. ISIS never misses the opportunity to record and share their degradation of humanity, with the world.
Did you notice (after watching the video) that 99% of the crowd are NOT ISIS Terrorists?
They are just ‘..regular Muslims..’ (ie.) ISIS Terrorist Supporters.
ISIS alone, is NOT the enemy. Islam/Muslims are the enemy.
This video is undeniable PROOF!
American Atheist Blogger, Avijit Roy.

Eminent Blogger and writer Avijit Roy has been killed and his wife, blogger Rafida Ahmed Bonna, severely injured when unidentified miscreants hacked them at TSC of Dhaka University on Thursday night.
Avijit, son of former DU teacher Dr Ajay Roy and also the founder of Mukto-mona Blog, and his wife have been admitted to Dhaka Medical College Hospital in critical condition immediately after the attack.
Later, he died while undergoing treatment around 10:30pm, said Shahbagh police station OC Sirajul Islam.
Bonna told the Dhaka Tribune: “The miscreants attacked us with cleaver around 8:45pm.”
Witnesses said some unidentified miscreants swooped on the bloggers and hacked them mercilessly between 8:30pm and 9pm while they were returning from the book fair, leaving them critically injured.
OC Sirajul said: “We do not have any clear idea about the attackers. But, the police is suspecting that those, who attacked Humayun Azad, might be behind this as the attacking style suggested similarity.”
On February 27, 2004, professor Humayun Azad was attacked on the way back from book fair, in the following August he died in Germany.
Miscreants also exploded two crude bombs outside of the DMCH around 11:30pm, immediately after the news spread in the city.
A group of people have staged a protest in front of the DMCH, protesting the killing.
DU Proctor Amjad Ali said: “I came to know the writer had been receiving threats from militants because of his anti-communal activism.”
Among the teachers of Dhaka University who rushed to Dhaka Medical College hospital hearing the news of the attack, were Professor Dr Abul Barkat, Professor Anwar Hossain.
Professor Anwar Hossain said the those, who are against the country’s liberation, democracy, free thoughts and attacked Humayun Azad, have perpetrated this.
Liton Nandi, Dhaka University Chhatra Union president, told the Dhaka Tribune they were set to bring a torch procession, protesting the attack and killing in a short time.
Earlier in 2014, online bookstore Rokomari.com stopped selling books by the well-known writer after an Islamic militant issued death threats on Facebook to the website’s owner.
The decision to withdraw his books was prompted by death threats posted to Facebook by Farabi Shafiur Rahman, an Islamist extremist allegedly linked to Jamaat-e-Islami.
Farabi accused Avijit of defaming Islam and the “prophet” Mohammed and accused Rokomari.com chairman Mahmudul Hasan Sohag of “promoting atheism” by selling his books.
In his Facebook post, Farabi specified the office address of Rokomari.com and called upon his “Islamist friends” in the adjacent locality to attack.
He also told Sohag that he would suffer the same fate as Ahmed Rajib Haider, a popular blogger known by the psuedonym Thaba Baba, who was hacked to death last year by machete-wielding Islamic militants.
Avijit, a Bangladesh-born engineer, who was living in the United States, rose to prominence with his books on philosophy, scientific thought and human rights issues.
Among his books are Biswas and Bigyan (Belief and Science), Abishwasher Darshan(philosophy of atheism), Samakamita: Baigyanik ebong Samajmanastattik Anusandhan (Homosexuality: Scientific and socio-psychological intervention),Satantra Bhabna o Buddir Mukti (individual thoughts and freedom of thoughts) etc.
Avijit and his wife came to Bangladesh to attend the book fair as two of his books came out in the fair.
Avijit was under the target of the fundamentalists as he has been continuing his literary war against the Radicalism in Bangladesh and he also under the scanner of the Muslim fanatics as he married a Muslim girl. Rafida Ahmed Bonna, his wife was targeted as she was always supporting his husband, Avijit for his belief on atheism.
Born in a reputed Hindu family, Avijit reached to a destination of atheism in his turbulent youth.
Awami League, the so called secular and ruling party in Bangladesh is completely failure to protect the minorities and the free thinkers in Bangladesh right now.
Radical Islam is growing there with all its barbaric crudeness and fanaticism. Sources say that Jamaat and BNP may be behind this horror killing.

Message was posted by Twitter account used to publicize ISIS activity
ISIS supporter threatened to conquer Rome and bring shariah law to city
Also warned terrorists will ‘throw homosexuals off Leaning Tower of Pisa
Comes after jihadist spoke of plans to takeover Italian capital in ISIS video
Threats sparked flood of mocking tweets and memes from Italian public

Hapless Islamic State militants have vowed online to take over Rome – and ‘throw homosexuals off the Leaning Tower of Pisa’.
In the message, posted by a Twitter account linked to the terror group, the ISIS supporter also threatens to bring sharia law to the Italian capital.
It comes just days after masked jihadists warned of their intention to conquer the city in a video that showed the mass beheading of 21 Christians in Libya.
ISIS Vows to ‘Conquer Rome.’
But rather than spark widespread panic, the threats have triggered a flood of mocking responses – with dozens taking to social media to make fun of the jihadists and their takeover plans.
In the threat posted today, Twitter user Abu Abdullah Britani, who openly publicises ISIS activity, wrote: ‘#We_Are_Coming_O_Rome with slaughter’.
The message was soon followed by one that read: ‘#We_Are_Coming_O_Rome, we will conquer & establish the justice of #shariah. We will use your leaning tower of pisa to throw off homosexual’.
The terrorists have previously thrown men off of buildings for ‘being gay’.
Earlier this year, images emerged that appeared to show militants hurling one man off a building in the town of Tal Abyad in Raqqa as supposed punishment for having a ‘homosexual affair’.
This most recent threat appears to indicate the terrorists intend to bring their barbaric practices to Europe – and plan to repeat the horrific scenes off the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
It appears the tweeter is unaware the tower is in Pisa, not Rome.
The hashtag #We_Are_Coming_O_Rome has been used by Islamic State supporters to discuss plans to reach Rome after the city was mentioned in a sickening video released earlier this week.
The footage, which lasts five minutes, shows the Egyptian Christians dressed in jumpsuits being marched one by one along a lonely beach, each held by a fighter clad in black.
The captives, their faces uncovered, are made to kneel before being forced to lie down. The masked jihadists then behead them simultaneously.
In the video, one of the militants warned: ‘Today we are south of Rome. We will conquer Rome with Allah’s permission.’
They claimed their prisoners had been beheaded in Libya – just 220 miles south of Italy.
In the wake of the threat, Italian security chiefs have approved plans to put 4,800 soldiers on the country’s streets and post them to ‘sensitive sites’ to help prevent terrorist attacks.
Reports claim 500 will be deployed in Rome – where soldiers are already guarding diplomatic residences, synagogues and Jewish schools.
The troops are also expected to be deployed at tourist venues such as archaeological sites and monuments.
Meanwhile, the commander of Vatican City’s 110-man Swiss Guard said his forces are ready to defend Pope Francis if ISIS attempt a strike .
But some experts have claimed that ‘Rome’ could be being used as a symbolic term by the terrorists, and might refer to the United States, Turkey, or the West as a whole.
Unconvinced Twitter users have taken to the social networking site to undermine ISIS threats with a number of tweets and mocking memes.
Some played on the city’s history as the home of fearsome warriors, with one user posting an image of Russell Crowe in Gladiator with the message ‘So you are coming to Rome, let me entertain you’.
Another posted a cartoon of men dressed in armour and shields with the caption ‘Italian special units alerted to the threat of ISIS…’
A number of Romans took the opportunity to offer advice to ISIS – with some warning them against travelling in rush-hour traffic and others pointing out there may be glass on the street.
And one young woman politely asked the terrorists to stay at home, saying that the city already had a ‘long list’ of problems that needed to be fixed.

Assyrian fighters guard the church in Tel Hormizd, Syria, an Assyrian village that has been threatened by ISIS (AINA photo).
ISIS Threatens Assyrians in Syria, Women and Children Evacuated:
Hassake, Syria (AINA) — Two days ago ISIS ordered Assyrians in the region of Hassaka to remove the crosses from their churches and to pay jizya (Christian poll tax), warning residents that if they failed to pay they would have to leave or else be killed. There are 35 contiguous Assyrian villages on both sides of the Khabur river, stretching for 80 kilometers from Hassaka west to Ras al-Ain.
On Sunday ISIS entered the village of Tel Hormizd (AINA 2015-01-31) and forced residents to remove the cross from the church. After ISIS left the town, the women and children were evacuated to the town of Um Gargen, directly north across the river, while the Assyrian men, who are armed, stayed to defend their town. Kurdish fighters from the YPG have also entered the town to protect it.
An Assyrian from Tel Talaa, 50 kilometers west of Tel Hurmizd, has been kidnapped. The residents Tel Talaa, which is on the southern bank, are also crossing the river to towns on the northern bank, which are mostly empty because the Assyrian residents have emigrated to the West.
In the village of Tel Tawil, located on the northern bank about 60 kilometers west of Tel Hurmizd Assyrian fighters successfully repelled an ISIS attack.
In Tel Hurmizd Assyrian fighters remounted the cross on the Church of St. Pithew, which had been taken down under threats from ISIS.
It is estimated that only 3,000 Assyrians remain in these villages, whose population once numbered over 35,000.
