ISIS Fighters, Having Pledged to Fight or Die, Surrender en Masse

DIBIS, Iraq — The prisoners were taken to a waiting room in groups of four, and were told to stand facing the concrete wall, their noses almost touching it, their hands bound behind their backs.

More than a thousand prisoners determined to be Islamic State fighters passed through that room last week after they fled their crumbling Iraqi stronghold of Hawija. Instead of the martyrdom they had boasted was their only acceptable fate, they had voluntarily ended up here in the interrogation center of the Kurdish authorities in northern Iraq.

For an extremist group that has made its reputation on its ferociousness, with fighters who would always choose suicide over surrender, the fall of Hawija has been a notable turning point.

    It’s almost like they don’t believe the promises of 72 virgins in the afterlife.

      They’d rather gamble on making it to justin’s “canada” and the 10.5 million payout waiting, would be my bet.

        This is where you Photoshop in pics of Kathleen Wynn. 🙂

      Their leader dead and their caliphate crumbled to dust around them is what has shaken their faith. The end times were suppose to happen as the great satan(the US) was to battle them in Dabiq as foretold by scripture. It didn’t happen. There belief was grounded in holding territory which they havn’t.

      this is how you beat them. You attack them at the roots of their ideology and break their faith. Destroying their spirit does far more than breaking their bodies.

        Then somethingbshould hapen to the black box in Mecca and the ideology would be deligitimized with one sigle precision strike.

          If war in proper broke out I would suggest that as one of the targets. Though curious I havn’t run across it’s significance in the Koran yet. Must be part of the pilgrimage.

    And some of them will and are fighting to the death. So what? That many are surrendering simply shows that they are human and subject to fear and the desire for self-preservation – as we all are. But ISIS also demonstrates the incredible capacity for evil that humans have.

    • Every single one of them needs to be investigated for war crimes, crimes against humanity, etc. ISIS fighters deliberately target innocent civilians — it’s not a “fog of war” thing, it’s by design. And they publicly reveled in it and there are many witnesses and there’s overwhelming evidence — often proudly documented by the Islamists themselves (much the same way that Nazi filmographers were the best documentarians of the Nazi’s own atrocities). No excuse whatsoever for not prosecuting these people.

      • k2

        I agree completely.

        No trials, just investigative fact finding, and if the evidence checks out, execute them on the spot.

        • DaninVan

          An alternative would be to execute them on the spot…then try them.

    • These people are not human. Had these perverts gone to Thailand to exploit and abuse children or had they been drug runners, we would deal with them accordingly. They are no different save the trappings of a ridiculous yet dangerous ideology. They are not surrendering because they are human. Their culture is one that allows for perversity and cowardice.

  • marty_p

    Typical Mo and Arab false bravado heroism – when in fact they usually demonstrate cowardice.
    I still remember Saddam’s boast “It will be the mother of all battles” and he ended up being caught hiding in a hole in the ground.
    Nasser boasted Israel will be destroyed in May 1967 and in the 6 Day War the heroic Egyptian soldiers dropped their weapons and ran.

    • Norman_In_New_York

      More Egyptian soldiers died of heat stroke than from hostile fire.

      Ran so fast their shoes fell off…

  • chayisun

    Apparently each of every one of them was either a cook or a clerk. AND these thugs say this with a straight face with a nudge, nudge wink, wink……..Solution….Take each and every one of them out back and execute them.

    • Methinks there’s no way that a murderous group like ISIS is going to give any of their members a “pass” even if they are serving as cooks or clerks — ISIS is extremely paranoiac of spies. I’m sure even cooks and clerks would have to pass some sort of “fidelity” test, such as executing, torturing or raping somebody. Heck, ISIS even got small children to participate in prisoner executions. They appear worse than the Nazis were, and I never imagined in my lifetime that we might witness something like that.

      Are these “defectors” at least helping us with credible intel? Because if not, they probably aren’t defectors — they’re infiltrators.

      • chayisun

        ” Do you have some secrets to tell us?”

        “Well, as I was only a cook, I can give you a nice recipe for mock-muslim soup….
        Step one, find a muslim who won’t behead someone……Not that I ever saw a beheading……Well, other then the one I beheaded to make my soup…..chop him into cubes, add hot water….”

        “YUCK!!! You make me sick!”

        “That’s exactly what Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi said when he sampled my soup.”

  • Alain

    Just grant them their wish for goodness sake: kill them by firing squads.

    • Observer

      That’s a waste of good lead!

      It’s better to make a 20 foot deep pit, fill it full of recycled bacon grease and let them drown in it.

    • Norman_In_New_York

      Since they chopped off heads, a guillotine would be appropriate.

  • simus1

    muslim fanatics always follow their holy book which recommends this exact strategy when the easy head chopping and raping times are in the past.

  • Dave

    “stand facing the concrete wall, their noses almost touching it, their hands bound behind their backs.” Should be followed by “and a knife shoved into their kindeys.”

  • Because the child rapists are cowards and failures.

    • Justin

      We in Canada will take them all!

      • Because Trudeau has decided, along with Ben Levin, that Canada simply doesn’t have enough child abusers. They all vote Liberal.

      • chayisun

        Yep. AND hand them out free medical care, welfare cheques and tickets to the Leaf games. Gold section.

  • Drunk by Noon ✓

    Execute every last one of them.
    ☝️ Now go suck on it!

  • Hard Little Machine

    Flame thrower them all and bulldoze them into mass graves. Sorry but it’s the only thing Islam understands.

  • Brett McS

    They weren’t lined up in front of a pit and shot in the head?

  • Barrington Minge

    Realy brave now arn’t they? Craven Cowards.
