In a recent video upload by ISIS, they showed beheading of Egyptian Christians, who were kidnapped by ISIS in 2014. The Egyptian people were outraged, and the government decided to not sit back and watch the slaughter this time. They have answered this time with exacting the same violence imposed on them and bombing Islamic State in Libya.
“Egypt and the whole world are in a fierce battle with extremist groups carrying extremist ideology and sharing the same goals…Cairo would choose the necessary means and timing to avenge the criminal killings”. Egypt President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said after the video release claiming that he will exact revenge on ISIS it whatever way he deems fit.
A seven-day mourning has also been organized for the brutal mass killing of these Egyptian Christians.
The video release by ISIS showed beheading of Egyptian Christians with the message that they are avenging Osama Bin Laden, who was murdered by Christians (Americans) and whose body has been buried in the ocean. They claim that they will fight for his death and will spare no one. That they will mix the blood of Christians with that of Bin Laden and ocean.
The video consists of people walking down the beaches of Libya, south of Rome and people being beheaded and then the ocean waves changing color to that of death. ISIS has set its goal on mass murder, earlier with the Jordanian pilot and other hostages and now with this mass murders.
It seems like ISIS doesn’t have an agenda or goal, it’s just suffering from blood lust and wants others to suffer from it too. ISIS wishes to make this world a war ground for more deaths to follow. They are not a rational group that we are dealing with, but that of an irrational baby that just wants to get what it wants, not out looking the consequences or the reason behind these uncanny demands.
