The latest in high-concept marketing from our friends in the Islamic State:
The shocking practice of giving away human beings as prizes, called “sibya,” was organized by the Da’wa and Mosques Department in Al-Baraka province in Syria in honor of the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan and was announced June 19 on ISIS Twitter accounts, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute and the Clarion Project, two independent research institutes that track social media accounts linked to terrorist groups.
An announcement on Twitter “begins with congratulations to ISIS soldiers and departments in the province upon the beginning of the month of Ramadan,” MEMRI wrote, “It then announces the upcoming Koran memorization competition, at which it says participants will be tested and given prizes accordingly.”
The statement lists the prizes planned for the top ten competitors, with the top three to each be awarded a female slave: ‘Winner of the first place [will be granted] (sibya) [a female slave who was captured at war],'” the translation by MEMRI read.
These “men” could be killed yesterday and it wouldn’t be too soon.
