Atrocities by Syrian jihadist rebels have reached a sensational new low level, according to a revered nun working with persecuted Christians, the WND (World Net Daily) website reports exclusively today (January 1, 2014).
Sister Hatune Dogan told WND in a Skype interview that members of the Syrian opposition are draining the blood of Christians they behead and selling vials to Islamic radicals -- mostly in Saudi Arabia -- for $100,000 each.
The Syrian Orthodox nun explained that the blood is used in a ritual washing of hands in the belief the act atones for sins and provides privileged access to heaven. The Christians, she said, are beheaded in ceremonies in which they are forced to kneel, with their hands and feet bound, as the Muslim radicals read a death sentence imposed because the victim refuses to renounce Christianity and embrace Islam.
She detailed how the head of the victim is brutally severed with knives. The blood spurting from their necks is captured in basins and then bottled.
Sister Dogan added that the sale of Christian blood "is a big business." She explained, "with this money, the Muslim terrorists can buy more weapons."
