Justice, Syrian Style

An ISIS beheader is beheaded:

A top figure in Islamic State’s self-declared police force, which has carried out beheadings, was himself found decapitated in eastern Syria, a monitoring group said.

The man was an Egyptian national and was known as the deputy “emir” of the al-Hesbah force in a Syrian province, the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Tuesday.

His body, which showed signs of torture, was found near a power plant in al-Mayadeen city in the Deir-al-Zor province, it said, citing contacts on the ground.

The Observatory said the message “This is evil, you Sheikh” was found written on the corpse, which had a cigarette in its mouth. Residents in areas controlled by Islamic State have said the group has banned smoking in public.


It’s a sign of the times that I had to tell SpellCheck that “beheader” is legit, and while the “emir’s” bloody end doesn’t quite conform to American standards of justice, I hope nobody loses any sleep over it.
