This one goes out to all the conservatives who incessantly pretend that Daesh/ISIS is representative of all Islam.
A video going viral in the Arab world this week shows an old Syrian woman with massive intestinal fortitude calling out ISIS thugs, telling them their ways “evil” and that their violence is “forbidden.”
The video, titled “In Syria, an Old Lady Teaches Daesh a Lesson They Will Never Forget,” was originally posted sans subtitles. In the video, the old woman recites poetry and verses from the Quran at the militants, screaming “Oh, you devils” and “Turn back to god. What you are doing is forbidden.” She adds that neither ISIS nor Bashar al-Assad will win at the rate things are going, because now that ISIS has “money from America and weapons of America,” they’re going to do what any good villain group does: turn their blades on one another.
When told by one of the militants to “let it rest,” she fires back, saying “Let it rest? What about all those that you killed and that kurd you slaughtered?”
Citing the Quran, she tells them that “The believers are but brothers, so make settlement between your brothers,”
And when the thug holding the camera tells her that he’s heard enough of what she has to say, she lays down a stern warning:
“God is watching what you’re doing.”
The video gained over 100,000 views in a short period; eventually, one with English subtitles was put up. You can watch that video below:
