By “belligerent” I’m assuming they mean they weren’t willing to convert to Islam. May we all be so belligerent.

The Christian Times:

The Islamic State terror group has released the latest edition of its propaganda magazine, which reportedly contains “unseen” photographs of the jihadis executing “belligerent Christians” in the Philippines.
The most recent issue of Rumiyah magazine features an image of masked ISIS fighters pointing their guns at five prisoners lying on their stomachs on the ground with their hands tied up behind their backs. The prisoners, who are wearing orange uniforms, appear to have been shot directly in the head.

The latest issue, titled “The Jihad in East Asia,” focuses on the terror group’s ongoing operations in the Philippines, where ISIS militants has been clashing with government forces in the city of Marawi.

“The soldiers of the Khilafah in East Asia stormed the city of Marawi in the southern Philippines on the island of Mindanao, chased out the local police and the military, and raised the banner of the Islamic State,” the militants wrote in the latest issue of the magazine, according to Breitbart News.

The image was shared by Rita Katz, director of SITE Intelligence group, on Twitter on Wednesday. “#ISIS shows unseen picture of executions of ‘belligerent Christians’ by pointblank gunshot after sieging #Marawi #Philippines,” Katz tweeted.
The magazine contains several photos of the murdered Christians, who have been described by the jihadists as “belligerent.”

In other news, Newsweek ran a piece titled “Homegrown Terrorism and Why the Threat of Right-Wing Extremism Is Rising in America.” (No link for asshattery.)

I think I know why Newsweek is going out of business.
