    Friend of Steven Sotloff Challenges ISIS Leader to Debate on Islam

    A close friend of Steven Sotloff’s today demanded to debate the leader of the Iraqi terror group that allegedly murdered the American journalist.“I have a message to Abu Bakr,” Barak Barfi, a friend of Sotloff’s and family spokesperson, said in heated Arabic before television cameras late Wednesday, referring to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, head of ISIS. “You said Ramadan is a month of mercy but where is your mercy? You speak of Islam and the Holy Koran but I know the Koranic verses.”
    Barfi then quoted a verse in the Muslim holy book about God’s disdain for oppressors.
    “Abu Bakr, I am ready to debate you” Barfi said. “I come in peace, I don’t have a sword in my hand, I am ready for your answer.”
    Barfi’s personal challenge to al-Baghdadi came after he read the first statement from Sotloff’s family since his death was confirmed by U.S. officials Tuesday. Sotloff appeared to have been murdered on camera by an ISIS fighter.

    Dont expect the coward Abu Bakr to reply. He is a coward, and a power hungry barbarian. I would love to see this debate tho.

    When I found out that he was a devout Jew, and took actions to revere his holy days even in captivity, without them finding out that he was Jewish - I almost hit the floor.

    Everything I've read about this guy was amazing. His loss is a loss for the entire world.

    As to the OP. Debating ISIS(L) about Islam would be like when Bill Nyghy debated that dude from the Creation Museum about evolution. It would be an exercise in futility. You can't debate with a true believer. A true believer, believes what they want to believe, and to hell with what anyone else says.

    And, as far as defeating these people, the rules of war change, when your enemy no longer fears death and believes that if they die a martyr that they will be better off.

    This is the only debate they understand:

    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.
