"Whoever denies me before men, I will also deny them before heaven" -Last words of George Assaf before he was murdered by ISIS for the crime of being a Christian.

According to one woman, ISIS allegedly baked six men to death and killed 250 children in a dough machine. Many others were thrown from a balcony and some shot. ISIS routinely practices horrific killings to discourage resistance.

LOS ANGELES, CA (California Network) - According to one ISIS survivor in Syria, Christian children were kneaded to death in bread machines, the rotating machines breaking their bones and crushing their young bodies for no crime except being Christian.

This story has been told by Alice Assaf whose son was beaten then shot by ISIS because he refused to change his first name from the Christian "George."


Assaf told a reporter how ISIS turned a bakery into a death shop of horrors, putting children into machines for kneading dough and turning them on to crush the hapless kids inside. Men were baked to death inside ovens.

Their crime was merely Christianity and it echoes other horrific stories told across the rest of Syria and Iraq. The terrorists remain notorious for their brutality, for it is not enough to merely kill people, the killings must be performed in the most horrific manner so as to terrorize others.

Two years ago, ISIS terrorists took over Assaf's town in Syria. Alice Assaf told her son George to hide and arranged for him to be hidden by friendly Muslims. However, the family betrayed George and he was captured. His mother had pleaded with him to change his name to a Muslim sounding-one, but he refused. George's last words to his mother were: "I don't want to hide myself. You are the one who taught me to follow what Christ said, 'whoever denies me before men, I will also deny them before Heaven.'"

George Assaf was beaten, then shot.

Others fared even worse. As ISIS took over the town bakery, they converted it into a shop of horror, they rounded up the six bakers working there and executed them in their own ovens. When they began gathering Christian children at the bakery, some local soldiers attempted to rescue the kids. To discourage the soldiers, the terrorists began throwing children off nearby balconies. The horrifying tactic worked and allowed the terrorists to murder 250 kids in the bakery's dough machine.

Assaf said she managed to flee from the town and survived to tell her tale to Roads to Success, a non-profit organization that is working to defend human rights in the Middle East.

Many towns have since been liberated, but fear remains that ISIS will return and begin gruesomely murdering more people.

As reporters explore the liberated towns, more horror stories are being told. The terrorists did not merely execute people, but they sought the most horrific ways to kill.

Worst yet, ISIS has mined and booby trapped homes in places like Mosul so that residents will be hurt or killed when they return to their homes.

The scourge that is ISIS is losing ground in the Middle East, but continues to grow elsewhere in the world where it is largely unopposed.
