ISIS destroy Christian graves and headstones with sledgehammers

Terrorist group ISIS has released photographs of its militants destroying Christian graves with sledgehammers and carving out crosses in the Iraqi city of Mosul  


Terrorist group ISIS has released photographs of its militants destroying Christian graves with sledgehammers and carving out crosses in the Iraqi city of Mosul.

It's the latest shocking act by the Islamists who are waging a campaign of terror against other religions that has involved mass beheadings and raping.

The images were posted on social media, including the Shomoukh Al-Islam jihadi forum, under the title Leveling Graves And Erasing Pagan Symbols.

The statement stems from a collection of Islamic teachings known as the hadith, which many Muslims reject.
Steven Stalinsky, executive director of The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), told that by posting the images on social media, the group was sending a message to the West.

He said: 'It is important to note that ISIS is documenting its destruction and desecration of Christian sites and its attacks on Christian communities, and on other minorities' sites and communities, and is disseminating these images worldwide via social media. 


 The group released a statement with the images that attempted to justify the mass desecration. It said that graves above the ground suggested that the dead person was closer to Allah than the living, so must be demolished and any images on the graves must be erased

 Christians have suffered considerably at the hands of Isis, with many in Iraq and Syria forced by the militants to choose between leaving their homes, facing death or paying a traditional tax on non-Muslims
