The Islamic State terrorist organization has released a heinous new execution video purporting to show another one of the group's sick execution methods in which four Iraqi prisoners were burned to death by being suspended by their hands and feet over roaring flames.
The video, which according to the British news site The Daily Star is titled "Punish (Them) Equal With Which You Were Harmed," was released by the Islamic State's propaganda wing onto ISIS-linked social media accounts on Monday morning.
The footage purports to show four chained Iraqi men, believed to be Shiite Muslims, being forced to watch a video of an IS militant being burned alive by anti-IS forces only to suffer the same fate moments later. more >>
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has said that the Islamic State terror group has executed at least 91 people in the space of a month in Syria, including 39 of its own fighters, for crimes such as sorcery and sodomy, among others.
"The executions [are being] carried out for sorcery, insulting Allah, sodomy, adultery, banditry, joining and cooperating with the awakening movements, sorcery, cooperating with crusader coalition, mischief on Earth and cooperating with the Nusayri regime forces," SOHR wrote, noting that most of the victims were beheaded.
At least 32 civilians, including two women, were among the executed in Syria between the period of July 29 to Aug. 29. IS has implemented its strict version of Shariah law in the territories it has conquered, and despite airstrike operations from allied countries, it maintains its control over several cities in Iraq and Syria. more >>
Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards admitted to Congress on Thursday that a Planned Parenthood clinic involved in fetal tissue research currently sells aborted baby body parts for $60 per baby, which critics say far exceeds what is allowed by law for reimbursement costs.
Planned Parenthood also released a report on the series of undercover videos appearing to show Planned Parenthood's involvement in the illegal harvesting and selling of aborted baby parts. The report, paid for by Planned Parenthood and from a liberal research group that has conducted opposition research for the Democratic Party, claims the videos falsely represent Planned Parenthood.
In a letter sent to congressional leaders addressing the recent undercover video series produced by the Center for Medical Progress that attempts to expose legal violations within the the abortion giant's fetal tissue reimbursement practices, Richards claimed that CMP's videos are nothing more than a "smear" campaign and asserted that her organization has violated no laws. more >>

A Muslim family in Lahore, Pakistan, has abducted, tortured and shot their 23-year-old daughter and her Christian husband, leaving them for dead, in retaliation for their daughter's conversion to Christianity.
The 28-year-old husband, Aleem Masih, was killed in the late-July incident after taking three shots, including one to the head. His wife, Nadia, was shot in the midsection and remains in critical condition in the hospital, the Christian persecution monitor Morning Star News reported.
The Masihs got married about a year ago after Nadia gave her life to Jesus at the dismay of her Muslim parents. The Masihs decided to flee to the Narang Mandi, a town about 37 miles from Lahore, to avoid being victimized by an act of honor violence from Nadia's family after Aleem and his family members were continuously threatened. more >>
WASHINGTON — Prominent black pastors and pro-life activists gathered in front of the National Portrait Gallery on Thursday to demand that the taxpayer-funded museum remove a bust of Planned Parenthood's white supremacist founder, Margaret Sanger, from the institution's "Struggle for Justice" exhibit.
After the National Portrait Gallery, which is run by the Smithsonian Institution, refused last week to take action on a letter sent by a coalition of 10 black pastors requesting the removal of Sanger's bust from the gallery, Bishop E.W. Jackson and the conservative group ForAmerica organized a rally Thursday morning to voice displeasure with the Gallery's decision to keep the bust.
Nearly 20 African-American pastors and pro-life advocates spoke at the rally and explained that Sanger, who established abortion organizations that eventually became the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, did not advocate for abortion and birth control because she wanted to help "disadvantaged women," but because it was her goal to use eugenics to eliminate what she considered people of "inferior races." more >>
