Four renowned Kurdish players from the Syrian National Football Team were beheaded by ISIS in Raqqa City yesterday. ISIS beheaded the four men, who were “allegedly” charged with spying, in front of a group of small children.
One of the leaders of ISIS stated that football (aka. soccer in the US) was anti-Islam and was effectively banned in the Islamic State, along with all other “sports.”
Pictured above: Ihsan al Şuvaik (left) and Ahmed Ahavak (right), both beheaded by ISIS.
The names of the players beheaded by ISIS are as follows:
Osama Abu Kuvait, İhsan el Şuvaik, Nehad el Hussen and Ahmed Ahavak
Below is an actual image from the beheading where young children were given a front-row seat:
So, the lesson here is this:
Playing sports is objectionable to the tenets of Islam.
Although, chopping-off the heads of innocent human beings in front of little children?
Perfectly consistent with the tenets of Islam.
It is our hope that these four men will receive (at minimum) an honorable mention during the UEFA EURO Final tomorrow between Portugal and France.
And perhaps even a dedication of the game and a moment of silence for those who suffer around the world would be an appropriate gesture.
After all, they died for the sport they loved…
