(Rome) The Islamic State (IS) has published a photomontage depicting Pope Francis being beheaded by a jihadist.
The Beheading is an Islamic ritual murder in which the victim's throat is cut and then the head is separated from the trunk.
In February 2015, the 21 Coptic Christians were murdered by the Islamic State (IS) in Libya. In this way, in July 2016, the Catholic priest Jacques Hamel, was murdered while celebrating Holy Mass by IS followers at the altar.
The photomontage published by Wafa Media shows a real execution by an Islamic terrorist. The head of the victim was replaced with that of Pope Francis. Wafa Media has released photos and videos of correct executions in the past.
To ensure that there are no doubts, the head of the pope was labeled "Jorge Mario Bergoglio".
In the background is the black flag of the Islamic terrorist militia.
SITE made Intel Group, a private association that monitors terrorist activity on the Internet has attended to the post.
Last week, Wafa Media released the manifesto, "The Ghost of Terrorism." In English it states: "You will pay dearly your war against Islam. We will avenge the blood of Muslims on your soil. We will kill the boys, and the old ones will have to watch. "
According to Islamism expert Robert Spencer, who recently published the book Infidel's Guide to ISIS, threats against the Catholic church leader have been part of the Islamic State (IS) strategy since its inception. The Pope is considered the head of all Christianity (see also "We will Take Rome" - New video of the Islamic State (IS): picture of Pope Francis Torn).
According to Spencer, the IS is working on a calendar according to which the final collision, the "Armageddon", will occur in 2025. In his ranks it is claimed that Mohammed prophesied that the two Roman cities Constantinople and Rome would be conquered. In 1453 Constantinople fell into Muslim hands. Since the interwar period it is called Istanbul.
The fact that the Islamic State (IS) is precisely targeting the head of the church, despite being one of the most influential advocates of barrier-free migration and repeatedly protecting itself from Islam, is a mystery. Pope Francis was silent on the ritual murder of Abbé Jacques Hamel and said at the Assisi meeting of world religions that war was "worse" than "terrorism".
The hatred of the jihadists against Christianity is obviously stronger.
