Good News! al-Qaeda Torturing Syrians

They are slowly sawing off people heads with knives for being Christian Alawite or just the wrong kind of Muslim, but hey at least they aren't water-boarding.

Amnesty International says that an Al-Qaeda–linked rebel group operating in Syria uses torture, flogging, and summary killings in secret prisons.

In an 18-page report issued on December 19, Amnesty International identified seven detention facilities it says are run by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) in the northern provinces of Aleppo and Al-Raqqa.

Philip Luther, Amnesty International's director for the Middle East and North Africa, says that those abducted by the ISIS "include children as young as eight who are held together with adults."

Amnesty has called on the international community "to take concrete steps to block the flow of arms and other support to [ISIS] and other armed groups implicated in committing war crimes."

Torture and murder its only wrong when the west does it and Allah (the most gracious the most merciful) knows best.
