ISIS Insists On Slaughtering Anyone Not Conforming To Wahhabi Islam

Egyptian officials said Saturday that 30 armed terrorists wearing camouflage and carrying ISIS black flags carried out the deadly massacre at the mosque in northern Sinai.

The Friday attack death toll rose to 305, including 27 children dead and another 128 people wounded.

Following one of the deadliest acts of terrorism, Egyptian officials said the terrorists were waving the black ISIS banner as they fired into the mosque. The main suspects are ISIS of Sinai Province, the group formerly known as Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis. Its leader goes by the nom de guerre Abu Osama (his real name is Muhammad al-Isawi).

Since the Sinai mosque is associated with followers of the mystical Sufi branch of Islam, ISIS is the main suspect in this massacre that conveyed a message to Sufis to stop practicing their religion.

ISIS terrorists are Wahhabist, a puritanical version of the religion that emerged from Saudi Arabia in the 18th century and its members believe Wahhabi Islam should be spread by the sword. They hate anyone not conforming to Wahhabi Islam and target the Christians, Jews, Hindus, Yazidis, Shiites.

Many of those slaughtered worshippers in the Sinai mosque were also members of the Islamic sect Sufis which is despised by Sunni ISIS because they revere saints and shines. The ISIS had previously beheaded an elderly Sufi leader, accusing him of practising magic which Islam forbids.

Previously, ISIS has vowed to rid Sinai and Egypt, of Sufis. The Egyptian army has been battling ISIS-linked militant in the Sinai four years with limited success.

The Egypt president Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi vowed that the attack “will not go unpunished” and that Egypt would persevere with its war on terrorism.
