ISIS thugs behead amateur magician, claim tricks "insult Allah"

Yet another story about Islamic practice that you won't see in a U.S. paper.  From Britain's Daily Mail:

In Raqqa, Syria, an amateur magician was beheaded by Islamic State thugs for entertaining passers-by with his tricks.
The man was arrested by IS thugs, who claimed his tricks were insulting to God because they created 'illusions and falsehood'.  They said it was forbidden by the Koran because it was idle entertainment and kept locals from praying and attending the mosque.

Raqqa was once one of the most liberal and tolerant places in Syria with a mix of religions living side-by-side.

ISIS thugs have even ordered the local barber shops closed to prevent men cutting their beards.
