Non-Islamic ISIS Torches ‘Un-Islamic’ Drum Kits

To paraphrase Mr. Obama, apparently the non-Islamic ISIS has serious legitimate Islamic grievances with the Slingerland company:

ISIS in Libya have released pictures of armed fighters burning musical instruments as the extremist group continues its propaganda assault in the north African country.

Pictures of the heavily armed masked militants watching while a pile of drums burnt in the Libyan desert were released earlier today – purportedly by the ‘media wing’ of the local group.

It is understood the brightly coloured instruments had been confiscated by the religious police, and were destroyed near the port city of Derna, in eastern Libya.

Earlier this year, religious police were filmed beating musicians and destroying their instruments as punishment for playing an ‘un-Islamic’ keyboard.

The men were pictured being hit across the back and legs with a wooden stick in a public square in Syria after ISIS’s fanatical Islamic enforcers ruled the electric keyboard was ‘offensive to Muslims’.

Another picture shows two keyboards and what appears to be a lute smashed to pieces after raids thought to have taken place in Bujaq, a few miles to the east of Aleppo in Syria.

Serious question: Given ISIS’ love of propaganda photos and videos, what is it that makes Sony digital cameras, Adobe editing software and the American-created Internet as a distribution system as not being “un-Islamic?” What about the Soviet-designed AK-47 and the Toyota Hilux SUV?
