When ISIS Terrorists decided to murder Basil Ramadan, they had no idea what they would be unleashing upon themselves. His father, also Basil, took justice into his own hands. From IJReview:
The Islamic State captured Ramadan’s son, 18-year-old Ahmed Basil Ramadan, while he was working undercover for the Iraqi government. He was attempting to infiltrate the ISIS security force.
The jihadists chose to make an example of him and seven other hostages. The men were dressed in bright orange uniforms like Guantanamo Bay prisoners, and forced to kneel in front of a camera.
The Daily Mail reported on what happened next:
Their hands are handcuffed behind their backs and each Islamic State fighter appears to be holding their victim’s neck as they march to their deaths.
They appear to have been taken to a quiet area away from the city, possibly under a motorway bridge, near the river. Forced to kneel down and unable to see, the prisoners wait as each Islamic State fighter draws their pistol and takes aim.
Following the massacre, the Islamic State plastered video of the executions all over the Internet.
After seeing the video, which listed his son by name, Basil Ramadan wanted revenge. The father, in his 60s, grabbed an AK-47 and attacked an ISIS checkpoint like a one-man army.
The grieving father racked up a body count of seven before he was killed – avenging his son’s death sevenfold on the brutal terrorist organization.
This is an amazing example of a father’s love. If only all of us had his courage and strength to tackle these monsters, they would shrink in the face of fear. They would have no legs to stand on. Neither Basil is with us any longer, but the tale of their courage and the loss of their life should not be forgotten. Please share if you believe that no one should die at the hands of ISIS and that ISIS are Radical Islamic Terrorists!
