While the UN devotes its human rights operations to the demonization of the democratic state of Israel above all others and condemns the United States more often than the vast majority of non-democracies around the world, the voices of real victims around the world must be heard.

ISIS Executioner Beheads Three Men – After He Is Filmed SHARPENING His Sword For The Grisly Act

Three men accused of being agents of the Syrian government have been executed in a shocking new video, Islamic State has claimed.

The barbaric footage, released earlier today, shows the men kneeling in the middle of a dusty road in Deir ez-Zor, Syria, as a militant brandishing a sharpened sword stands behind them.

It comes just one day after the extremist group claim to have shot and beheaded more than 30 Ethiopian Christians in Libya.

The new eight-minute video shows the men - wearing orange Guantanamo-style jumpsuits with their hands and feet in chains - sitting in a dirty, underground room.

After giving information about each of the prisoners in Arabic, the men are blindfolded and filmed in the back of a moving van while an ISIS militant decked in black guards over them.

When the van stops, the barefoot captives are escorted out and begin to march slowly down an abandoned street, surrounded by fighters holding guns.

The professionally-shot film pans the scene - showing buildings irreparably damaged by bombing - before phasing into a picture of the executioner's sword being sharpened before the brutal executions.

One by one the prisoners are beheaded by a fighter, who is dressed completely in black and unidentifiable. Their bodies are left on the road.

Initial reports suggested the extremist group targeted the men because they worked for the Syrian regime.

But they did not confirm who the men - thought to be aged between 35 and 45 - were or when the execution took place.
