Modern day Khawarij expel Syrian Muslims from their homes

NGO: ISIS expels thousands in east Syria

 

The jihadist Islamic State of Iraq and Syria group has expelled more than 30,000 people from their homes in the eastern Syrian town of Shuheil, a monitoring group said on Sunday.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said ISIS had “forced out” some 30,000 residents after seizing Shuheil on Thursday from Al-Qaeda affiliate Al-Nusra Front.

Another 30,000 residents have been forced from their homes in the towns of Khosham and Tabia Jazeera, also in eastern Deir Ezzor province, the Britain-based NGO said.

“Some 30,000 residents of the town of Shuheil, the former stronghold of Al-Nusra Front, have been forced out by the Islamic State,” the group said.

Though both ISIS and Al-Nusra share a jihadist ideology, the two groups have regularly clashed, with Al-Nusra joining a coalition of armed opposition groups fighting ISIS.

ISIS has seized large swathes of territory in Syria and neighboring Iraq, declaring the land it holds to be an Islamic “caliphate,” and its leader the ruler of all Muslims.

The Observatory said ISIS had prevented some 30,000 people from returning to their homes in two other towns in Deir Ezzor, Khosham and Tabia Jazeera, which it captured in late June.

On a Facebook page, activists from Shuheil said ISIS had ordered all residents to leave, and entered in armored cars and tanks “because of their fear and cowardice.”

A video distributed by activists on YouTube purportedly shows mediators announcing the terms of the expulsion, saying residents are required to hand over weapons and remain out of Shuhail “until (ISIS) feels it is safe.”

Activists said residents feared ISIS fighters planned to loot their homes, and the Observatory said the large displacement had left thousands sleeping in the open, with food and water shortages.

Note that the actions of these Khawarij are like that of Jews the Qur’an spoke off:
2:85
Quran 2:85 [Sahih International]
{Then, you are those [same ones who are] killing one another and evicting a party of your people from their homes, cooperating against them in sin and aggression. And if they come to you as captives, you ransom them, although their eviction was forbidden to you. So do you believe in part of the Scripture and disbelieve in part? Then what is the recompense for those who do that among you except disgrace in worldly life; and on the Day of Resurrection they will be sent back to the severest of punishment. And Allah is not unaware of what you do.}
And the Prophet, peace & blessings be upon, predicted these people when he (saw) said, “You will follow the ways of those nations who were before you so much that you will resemble each other as an arrow resembles another. Even if they entered a hole of a mastigure, you would follow them.” We said, “O Allah’s Apostle! (Do you mean) the Jews and the Christians?” He said, “Whom else?” –  [Sahih Bukhari]. And these Kharijites will follow the Jews to such an extent that they will follow Dajjal himself along side the Jews, as the Prophet (peace be upon him) said about the Khawarij that, “the Anti-Christ appears in their last remnant.” [Sunan Ibn Majah]
