After every murder, they screamed “Allahu akbar.” Not that this has anything to do with Islam.
A hadith depicts Muhammad saying: “Fight against those who disbelieve in Allah. Make a holy war…When you meet your enemies who are polytheists, invite them to three courses of action. If they respond to any one of these you also accept it and withhold yourself from doing them any harm. Invite them to (accept) Islam; if they respond to you, accept it from them and desist from fighting against them…. If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya. If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah’s help and fight them. (Sahih Muslim 4294.)
One of the survivors of the massacre of 29 Egyptian Christians in Minya in May said that the Islamic State extremists forced the women off the bus and ordered them to renounce their faith in Christ, but the Copts refused.
Financial Times reported on Tuesday that Mariam Adel, a young mother whose husband and nine of her relatives were killed in the attack, has been speaking from her hospital bed about the terrorist group’s attack.
Adel said that the jihadists opened fire with machine guns at the bus carrying the Christians traveling to a desert monastery, before getting on board to kill any men left alive.
As for the women, the radicals ordered them off the bus and told them to convert to Islam.
“Renounce our faith? Of course not,” Adel said of the women’s reaction. “If we had, they might have let us off the bus and treated us well. But we only want Jesus and we are confident he will not leave us.”
In response, IS robbed the women of their gold jewelry and mobile phones, taking what they described as the “spoils of war.”…
Other survivors of the Minya massacre, such as 10-year-old schoolboy Mina Habib, have also opened up about their harrowing experience.
Habib, whose father was one of IS’ victims, told Reuters in June:
“They asked my father for identification then told him to recite the Muslim profession of faith. He refused, said he was Christian. They shot him and everyone else with us in the car.”
The boy added, “Every time they shot someone they would yell ‘God is great.'”…
Actually, they screamed “Allahu akbar,” which means “Allah is greater,” not “God is great.”
