Syrian rebels execute boy: ‘Anyone who curses the prophet is killed immediately’

A mother watched in horror as her 14-year-old son was summarily tried, sentenced and executed all because of a joke he’d exchanged with a customer at his Aleppo, Syria coffee kiosk.

While in her apartment, Nadia Umm Fuad heard a commotion outside with a neighbor shouting, “they have brought back the kid,” according to The Telegraph.

“I went out on my balcony,” she told The Telegraph’s Richard Spencer. “I said to his father, ‘they are going to shoot your son! Come! Come! Come!’ I was on the stairs when I heard the first shot. I was at the door when I heard the second shot,” she recalled.

“I saw the third shot. I was shouting, ‘That’s haram, forbidden! Stop! Stop! You are killing a child.’ But they just gave me a dirty look and got into their car. As they went, they drove over my son’s arm, as he lay there dying.”

This event — this murder of young Mohammed Katta — took place earlier this month and has created an international outcry exemplifying one truth in the civil war in that country — no one is wearing white hats. There are no good guys, only bad guys to varying degrees.

Who does one trust? A dictatorial regime that murders its citizenry, or murderous jihadists?

The problem arose when a customer demanded a coffee upon the promise to pay for it on another day. Young Mohammed joked good-naturedly: “I wouldn’t give the Prophet Mohammed credit if he came here today.”

The wrong people overheard. The rushed over, grabbed the boy, threw him in a car and drove away. Thirty minutes later they returned.

Young Mohammed was stumbling and clearly beaten and a bag had been placed over his head. And it was then that the twisted logic of the boy’s executioner was proclaimed.

“I heard them say, ‘People of Aleppo and people of Shaar! Anyone who curses God is given three days to repent. Anyone who curses the Prophet is killed immediately’,” Nadia Umm Fuad said.

The Telegraph continues:

The murder of Mohammed, a drummer boy in the revolution’s early protest marches, has shocked even the battle-hardened people of Aleppo. It is easy for some to blame, as they do, the regime for inserting spies behind rebel lines to carry out atrocities to discredit the rebels.

But the killing, to many, only confirms what they already know: that a wild and untamed version of the most militant Islamist credos has entered the conflict. Jabhat al-Nusra, the local affiliate of al-Qaeda, has issued a statement condemning the death and denying responsibility.

As violent as the al-Qaida-backed al-Nusra is, even more violent, fundamentalist factions have splintered off from that group.

Nadia Umm Fuad told Spencer that the city of Aleppo had changed recently. “We didn’t have any problems when the FSA controlled Aleppo,” she said. “There are so many groups now, that we don’t know who is in charge.”

The young boy was never given a chance to offer a defense on his own behalf when he was returned. Prior to being shot, he said nothing.

“I saw my son, and saw him dead, and saw a fountain of blood coming out of him,” his father, Abdulwahab Katta, said. “I too said nothing. I was mute.”

Justice under the Syrian regime is no less brutal. Early in the war they picked up 13-ywear-old Hamza al-Khatib in Deraa, located in Southern Syria. When government troops returned the boy to his parents, he’d been burned, beaten, kneecap smashed, shot three times and his genitals had been removed.

There are no guys in white hats in Syria — just thugs in black hoods.

    And president obama and his administration want to supply tuese people, terrorists that are also trying to kill Americans with arms and ammunition. Talk about being as dumb as a box of rocks.

  2. Susan Emery says:

    How can anyone kill a child – these grown men are the jury, judges and executioners all in one. But a 14 year old child who probably didn't even know what he did……I feel so bad for his mother too…..Curses on anyone who kills such an innocent…….

  3. Alys Marks says:

    Obama has sent two ships filled with weapons to these Syrian rebel jihadists that are thugs.

    He is a war criminal giving machine guns and weapons that promote more killing of innocents.

    So what if they have a Dictatorship over there. Let it be. I think that our government in America is NO LONGER FOR THE PEOPLE. We the people of the USA do not approve of these wars. We want PEACE. We don't agree that it's the right thing to do to send more weapons for killing

    The Obama Administration: ''You Will Know Them By Their Fruits''…

  5. Robert Rex EDWARDS says:

    So, everyone in Congress still wants to back people like this. When will acts like this come to American soils?

    Religion used to murder is no religion, just another excuse to kill a kid who had a sense of humor.

    The country needs to wake up.

    In our own schools we have people teaching our kids these kinds of hatred. (As reported even here.)

    The government over there needs to hunt these murderers down and put them on public display and trial.

    Imprison them for everyday the boy lived and then executed at the same spot where they took that innocent life. Then will their GOD save them.

    Why do people murder in the name GOD?

    But then again, we use GOD's name in vain each and everyday in the world, even the USA.

  6. Robert Rex EDWARDS says:

    There is one other thing they are even ashamed to even show their face in every execution I have seen. A mark of a coward holding a gun.

    If I was living there, I would shoot each one in the head that covered their face, especially child killers.

  7. Doug Hanks says:

    This reminds me of the old Islamic joke where Wimpy Ahmed Muhammad says, "I'll gladly pay you Tuesday for a camelburger today."

  8. Kenneth Clark says:

    The DHS is actively importing these terrorists into our country under the guise of Temporary Protection. They are allowed to travel freely and settle where they wish with no monitoring while our government monitors us.

    They are saying that these they are bringing here are "displaced" due to their civil war. You can bet your boots that there will be jihadist among them that are bent on destroying Americans.

    more good work by the religion of peace or is it piss?
