(NEWSER) – The Islamic State may be harvesting organs from living prisoners for profit, according to a Reuters exclusive. The news company obtained a copy of Fatwa Number 68, which provides a religious justification for organ harvesting. “The apostate’s life and organs don’t have to be respected and may be taken with impunity,” the document states. “Organs that end the captive’s life if removed: The removal of that type is also not prohibited.” “Apostates” could refer to anyone from captive Christians to Sunni or Shiite Muslims, Reuters reports. The document opens up the possibility the Islamic State is taking organs from prisoners—fatally if need be—and selling them.
The fatwa comes from the terrorist group’s Islamic scholars. Reuters notes their interpretation of Islam does not match that of the majority of Muslims. The document—which was created last January—was obtained by the US government in a special forces raid in May. This is the first time any of the documents from the raid have been made public. While there is currently no proof the Islamic State is trafficking human organs, Iraq has accused them of doing it in the past. An Iraqi ambassador is pressuring the UN to use the document as evidence against the Islamic State. Read the full story here. (Read more Islamic State stories.)
This is a sad story where a family have to dig up there son Kendrick Johnson ,not once ,not twice but three time to find out what happened there loved . Kendrick Johson is the young man that was killed at his school when people found this man upside down in a gym mat. I do believe that this young man organs where missing to !!! The family of Kendrick Johnson is look for answers and at this time the family have got enough evidence that Kendrick did not kill himself and the family is headed to court.
Let me say that these state medical examiners are corrupt to the core. They cannot be trusted at all if the family have to continue digging up there love one to answers to there death. I do believe that the family of Kendick Johnson should go after the other two medical examiners jobs if they find out who kid there kid.
There is a mass cover up concerning this case and the police and the FBI have front row seats to the mayhem. There is reports that Kendrick Johnson might have been killed by a kid at his school that haves a father the works for the FBI.It seems there is always a kid that have a family member in important rolls in law enforcement or Government that thinks that they are above the law. I do not have the name of the suspect that the family of Kendrick that the suspect father is an important person to the Federal Bureau of Investigations though.
With that in mind this case is going to be a hard fight for the family of Kendrick Johnson because what is happening in America today when it come to the killing of young black men who are poor. It will a long up hill battle for the family and the family deserves justice for there child.
It seems like there is corruption every where when i comes to cases like this. First the medical examiner, then the police and the FBI ,what is next the judge!!! Well we are going to find out. I find it amazing that its been about 7 years and this family have not receive no form of justice for there son.
There is also reports that Kendrick Johnson was struck by some form of blount object like a dumb bell and who ever struck the young man with the dumb bell had help and told the other person not to say anything.
It is amazing how they came from Kendrick Johnson was looking for his shoe and fell upside down in the mat and died that way too someone hit the young man with a blunt object and rapped him in that mat.
When i first heard of this story i always knew this story was not on the up and up . No one just falls in a mat and dies . But we will find out who killed him soon enough because the family is going to court and finally after all these years they have enough evidence to do so.
KENDRICK JOHNSON MOTHER Talks being THREATEN & HARASSED! (Full Video Exclusive)
In recent, horrifying news, top investigators on the matter reported that Chinese prison officials are, in fact, harvesting organs from prisoners, most of which are guilty of only committing the crime of following a certain religion.
Known for its unaccountability in reporting prison populations, organ donations, and general treatment of prisoners, these Chinese prisons have the means to get away with this crime. Though the Chinese government claims to have stopped taking organs from prisoners who have been executed, Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting states that new information shows that the amount of organ donations has increased. If the government did indeed stop taking these prisoner donations, how could the organ count go up? Investigators state that the increase in organs is likely from the unofficial harvesting of live prisoner organs.
As though it weren’t cruel enough that the prisons are taking organs from unwilling donors, it’s reported that these victims are still alive and not under any anesthesia when undergoing this painful process. An exposé titled Human Harvest: China’s Organ Trafficking found that around 11,000 organs came from prisoners without anesthetic each year during the eight year long investigation they conducted. Researcher Katrina Bramstedt told Newsweek,
“It is known that Chinese surgeons perform the removal procedure [on political prisoners] and sometimes the ‘donor’ has still been alive during this process — the organ removal process is what actually kills them.”
“It is reported that employees of several transplant centers [in China] have indicated that they have used organs from live Falun Gong practitioners for transplants.”
Falun Gong is a religion secretly practiced in China and worldwide that promotes meditation and physical exercise as a way to be mentally and physically sound. Though their religion is peaceful and does not harm anyone or the government, the crime of belonging to any religion at all is what is illegal in China. It is these peaceful people that are so brutally mistreated and killed.
Despite overwhelming evidence stemming from such investigations, China still maintains that they have never been involved these inhumane practices and that any organs received from prisoners are voluntary donations. Since there is no official donor program in China, these organs go undocumented and can be sold on the black market for a hefty price.
