Isis affiliate cuts down “polytheistic” tree in Syria

An Isis affiliate operating in Syria’s southwest has cut down a tree because it believed locals were worshipping it instead of Allah.

Pictures and video widely shared on jihadist social media channels on Tuesday taken by the affiliated Khalid bin Walid Army showed a huge tree which they had decided to destroy because it was “polytheistic”.

In the pictures, two men clambered up into its highest branches and attacked it with a small chainsaw.

  • What? It makes perfect sense! Besides. there were no statues of Buddha or Confederate Generals close by…

    Best not to say anything positive about something in the presence of a zealot or they may conclude it is being worshipped.
    These guys would have no problem with a ‘scorched earth policy’.
    Come to think of it, isn’t the whole damn place one big desert?

    Instead, walk in circles around a pile of rocks.

    Only those gifted by allah in the vital holy skills of killing people and breaking stuff are fit to rule allah’s world.
    Down with the idolatry of the unbelievers !!

    They’re going to need something bigger than that chain saw to cut down Mount Hermon, a place of non-islamic religious importance.

    And after a hard days work cutting down demonic trees, they go home to rape their child sex slaves.

    Honestly a tree is more worthy of worship than their diety, although I worship neither.
