Brits 'Involved In Syria Executions And Torture' (video)
Sky News ^ | 10 February 2014 | Tom Rayner

Footage obtained by Sky News has implicated British citizens as being involved in acts of torture in Syria.

The material was uploaded onto the accounts of two men from London, thought to be fighting in Islamist rebel groups that have some links to Jahbat al Nusra.

One video, apparently taken on a mobile phone, was posted to Facebook on January 30 this year.

The FSA prisoner is heard shouting his innocence as he is bound to a car tyre and beaten across the legs with what appears to be a metal baton.

As he writhes around on the floor, one of the men stamps on his head.

Repeatedly he cries in Syrian Arabic dialect that he is not a "kuffar", a non-believer, and that he is a "mujahid" - a Muslim fighter like them.

Towards the end of the video, the baton breaks in half, and is held up to the camera by one of the captors.

It estimates that amongst the hundreds of foreign fighters on the ground right now in Syria, at least 40 are from Britain.

One man, also believed to be from London, recently tweeted a photograph showing three blindfolded and handcuffed men.

"Got these criminals today. Insha'Allah they will be killed tomorrow. can't wait for that feeling when you just killed someone", he wrote.

In the days following he then posted a photograph of a hand covered in blood on Facebook - the caption reads simply "My first time!".

That photograph has since been used as a propaganda image on jihadi social media pages, with the caption "in the name of Allah".

Last week a British citizen was said to have carried out a suicide attack in Aleppo, a development seen as deeply worrying by UK authorities.

Whaaaaat?

They didn’t expect British Muslim citizens to be as outrageous as any other muzzies?

Welll,,, they aren’t actual “Brits”. That’s like calling the Boston Bombers “Americans”.

Selective news fogging.

These are not WASP beatings.

I think I’ll skip that video, thanks.

Why does British PM David Cameron support these people?

Why has the UN put the Syrian govt under severe sanctions for trying to fight them off?
