If you think ISIS’s killing methods are bad, wait till you see one video in Arabic done by a Muslim lady dressed in a Hijab circulated to Muslims worldwide.
The video was a complaint to Caliph al-Baghdadi of ISIS as “the call of Muslim mothers” arguing that such methods as “beheading” and “shooting” are just too humane and will not work to stop the U.S. led coalition air raids which she complained that this is persecution against her living in Syria. To eliminate the attacks she suggested that an Ottoman method of execution be used to detract pilots from joining the coalition against ISIS.
She suggested to use the captured Jordanian pilot Moaz Kasasbeh and begged not to execute him mercifully by using a bullet or a knife, but begged them to reinstitute the Khazouk.
Everyone in the Middle East knows three things told to them by their grand parents about the Ottoman Turks and what they spread throughout the Middle East: Sihr “sorcery,” Baksheesh “bribery”, and the Khazouk which is a spike driven through the victim’s rectum, which the Ottomans used to terrify locals and deter potential insurgents. And this is exactly what this lady wanted to reinstitute:
“Are you going to execute him with a merciful bullet? Or are you going to execute him with a merciful knife?” she asks.
Khawiskou “impale him” she cries out “then send him to his mother” she added.
“Why are the Arab world fighting us. We are Muslim doing the will of Allah”.
“I am pleading [ISIS] to honor my special request that you Khazouk him “impale him” and post it all over the social networks and the media”.
One TV series and in order to thwart neo-Ottoman expansion reminds how horrific this type of execution was:
As we learned in school, the Ottomans were creative when it came to all sorts of weirdities. At times they used the hot poker, a red hot metal rod that is inserted through the anus which the expert executioner is able to avoid puncturing the heart and the victim could live up to two days before he dies since the bleeding is minimized as the hot rod caterizes the wound.
But as it seems, some are begging to revive the Khazouk in revenge against the U.S. led coalition pilots. But to this lady, the Khazouk is no fantasy, she is serious.
The West does not understand such tradition as a Muslim woman making such an appeal.
Here, let me explain it all. In Ibn Athīr’s famous history book al-Kāmil, he mentions the story in our history of a King called al-Mu’tasim, who was from the Banū ‘Abbas. The event goes like this; A Muslim woman was captured by the Romans and imprisoned, so the Romans laughed at her. The leader of the Roman king sarcastically said, “You won’t ever leave this place until the muslim king himself removes you from these shackles.”
The woman shouted “Wa Mu’tasima!” [Oh my grief, Mu’tasima!].The Roman King laughed at her and said : “He will never come to save you unless he was riding “ablaq” a black and white horse. He said this in a way of mocking her and showing the impossibility of the situation.
When al-Mu’tasim heard of the news, he gathered a whole army and made the entire army ride the “ablaq” horses and defeated the Romans (who in this case are viewed as the U.S. and Europeans) and himself entered the prison where the Muslim woman had been imprisoned. “Who are you?” she said.”I am al-Mu’tasim.” He freed her from her shackles, a sign of humiliation for the Romans.
And this became the issue that when a Muslim woman calls upon the Caliph for help he must comply. The Muslims always use this story al-Mu’tasim, a call of a Muslim woman’s appeal in Jihad must be honored and in this case, the hot poker.
