Islamic State deploys ‘flirt squads’ to entrap gay men for execution

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) appears to set no boundaries on its cruelty towards people they deem apostates and infidels as is evidenced by a new series of photographs displaying blindfolded men thrown from the rooftop of a building because they were allegedly gay. The Sunni jihadists created their own religious police force and deployed undercover ISIS fighters — called flirt squads — to entrap “suspects” who are accused by others of being homosexuals, according to Saturday’s news reports regarding public executions. …

ISIS reportedly send out undercover men to flirt with men in an attempt to identify gay men in the cities and towns which the group now controls in both Syria and Iraq.

According to reports, the terror group’s undercover male-only squad pose as a homosexual, make contact with other men and set up a meeting. When the targeted person makes contact, he is arrested immediately and executed. The honey trap tactic was developed by special brigades of young fighters in the Hisbah religious police. Sodomy is considered a crime under Sharia law and is punishable by death, usually barbaric execution.

Hisbah is Muslim doctrine which is translated “accountability.” It is the religious duty of the ruler of a Muslim government to coerce his people into accepting his notion of right and wrong. The goal of Hisbah is to maintain Sharia, the holy laws of Allah. This doctrine is based on the Koran’s teachings of what is good and what is wrong. Some Islamic sects preach that Hisbah is the sacred duty of all Muslims, not just rulers.

Just recently in Mosul, which is a major Iraqi city now part of the ISIS caliphate, crowd of Muslims, including women and children, had be ordered to gather below one of that city’s tallest buildings. The crowd watched as the allegedly gay men were dangled head first from the rooftop and then dropped to their deaths. The photos were released by ISIS using its social-media accounts. They also wrote and released a report written in Arabic entitled, “Implementation of the Punishment of Those Who Have Committed Acts of Homosexuality.” That report was posted on the jihadist online forum Shumoukh Al-Islam, according to reports.
