A video is going viral in the Arab world that shows an old lady giving ISIS militants an earful on how their evil ways are not representative of Islam, telling them to “turn back to God.”
The video, titled, “In Syria, an Old Lady Teaches Daesh a Lesson They Will Never Forget,” was originally posted without subtitles and gained over 100,000 views in a short period. The version below is with English subtitles.
The woman recites poetry and verses from the Quran to the militants during an angry tirade. “Oh, you devils!” she screams. “Turn back to God. What you are doing is forbidden.” She says at the rate fighting is going, neither ISIS nor President Bashar al-Assad will win. She says now that ISIS has “money from America and weapons of America,” they want to murder each other.
“The believers are but brothers, so make settlement between your brothers,” she says, citing the Quran.
When the fighter behind the camera lets her know he’s heard enough, she leaves him with a stern warning:
“God is watching what you’re doing.”
