Breitbart: “A document surfaced online this week and has been reportedly circulating in Raqqa, Syria, that alleges to be the official penal code of the Islamic State. The document, translated and confirmed to be from the terrorist group by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), lists eleven crimes and their punishments– seven of which are death.”
Opinion: ISIS and Hamas represent Edom (Genesis 36:1). The evil that is Edom began with the birth of Isaac’s twin sons, Jacob and Esau.
The twins fought in the womb, and in one of the most incredible prophecies in Genesis, their mother Rebekah inquired of the Lord as to why there was such turmoil in her womb. God’s answer sets the stage for the terror groups that came from inside the promised land.
“Two nations are in your womb, Two peoples shall be separated from your body; One people shall be stronger than the other, And the older shall serve the younger.””
Two peoples, Arab and Jew.
After being forced from their homeland in southern Jordan, Esau’s tribes settled in southern Israel 600 years before the birth of Christ, while the Jews were in captivity in Babylon. Ezra 9:1-2 records that some of the Jews returning to Judea intermarried with the sons of Edom, mixing idol worshiping blood into the Abrahamic family line.
Is it any wonder that the Pharisees, whom Jesus called a ‘brood of vipers’ were from Judea, or that Herod the great was born there, or that only one of Jesus’ disciples, the one who betrayed Him was from Judea?

The prophet Isaiah 63:1-2 foretells the end.
