While the UN devotes its human rights operations to the demonization of the democratic state of Israel above all others and condemns the United States more often than the vast majority of non-democracies around the world, the voices of real victims around the world must be heard.

Thrown to Their Deaths by ISIS Barbarians for 'Being Gay'

Known for their barbaric punishments and repressive control over the locals, ISIS have released photographs of militants hurling four men, accused of homosexuality, off the top of a building in Iraq.

The jihadi group has previously carried out the sickening punishment in their de-facto capital, Raqqa, in Syria. Now the inhumane death sentence has been used in the Iraqi province of Fallujah.

ISIS's latest propaganda images come after a family of 12 British nationals, including two grandparents are feared to have traveled to Syria.

With their arms bound tightly behind their backs and their eyes fully covered with a makeshift blindfold, each victim is shown being led to the edge of the tall building.

At the command of a senior ISIS officer, the two militants appear to grab their victim around his wait and hoist him to the edge of the rooftop.

All four victims are then dropped from the lofty height to their deaths. Several photographers appear to have been used by ISIS's media team in order to capture the victims on the roof and on the ground.

The gruesome propaganda photos appear to be an attempt by the depraved militant group to reinforce its rule of fear.

The final photo, too graphic for publication, showed the impact of the head injuries suffered by each of the victims.

Unusually for an ISIS public execution, no local civilians or ISIS militants appear to have come out and watched the men's death.

ISIS's propaganda photos are normally filled with people watching the punishment.

The extremist group have become known for their tough punishments, with theft punished by the amputation of a hand and the consummation of wine punished by a flogging.

Earlier this week, Syrian activists claimed that two women were executed for 'witchcraft and sorcery'.
