ISIS Killing Christians and Children

ISIS Killing Christians and Children

Dallas, TX - -(Ammoland.com)- Last week, I built a case for how the Islamic State’s monstrous brutalities include the summary killing of men, women and children, including by crucifixion.

That was before the world heard of the beheading of courageous U.S. journalist James Foley, which demonstrated just how psychotic and cruel the Islamic State is.

Today I will build further on the Islamic State’s horrors and crimes against humanity and then conclude by explaining why President Barack Obama’s laissez-faire mentality toward U.S. enemies is not only emboldening them but also drawing the U.S. closer and closer to another world war.

Reuters reported last week, “Refugee Samo Ilyas Ali has nine children to feed but he can’t focus on the future because the sounds of women and children crying out for help while being buried alive by Islamic State militants in northern Iraq often consume his mind.”

Just two weeks ago, Islamic State terrorists came in the night with machine guns and began to dig ditches for mass graves in Ali’s village. A tearful Ali, who is a 46-year-old former grocer, explained:

“We did not understand. Then they started to put people in those holes. Those people were alive. After a while we heard gunfire. I can’t forget that scene. Women, children, crying for help. We had to run for our lives. There was nothing to be done for them.”

If you still believe that the Islamic State wouldn’t brutally murder children in cold blood, consider a recent Anglican Communion News Service report. An emotionally distraught chaplain and Canon Andrew White explained that the 5-year-old son of a founder of Baghdad’s Anglican church was “cut in half during an attack by the Islamic State.”

White explained: “I’m almost in tears because I’ve just had somebody in my room whose little child was cut in half. I baptized his child in my church in Baghdad. This little boy, they named him after me. He was called Andrew.”

Do routine beheadings really seemed far-fetched — of even children — for such a barbaric group as the Islamic State? Or do we somehow expect this extreme terrorist group among extreme terrorist groups to spare children and send them all to an orphanage, only to see them grow up and be the group’s archenemies?

No wonder a large number of Christians fled the northern city of Mosul after the Islamic State’s message — convert to Islam, get out or be killed — was broadcast by loudspeakers from the city’s mosques. The Islamic State’s leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, said that for Christians who don’t convert or leave, “the only option is the sword.”

Special advisers for the United Nations explained: “These reports are shocking in the extreme. They show, in very clear terms, the complete absence of humanity of the perpetrators of these crimes.” They are grave violations of human rights and international humanitarian law.

Yonadam Kanna, Iraq’s most prominent Christian politician, said:

“This is ethnic cleansing, but nobody is speaking up.” There’s even a more appropriate word for it: genocide. And no one is speaking up?

Kanna’s words bring me back to Edmund Burke’s words: “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

If you think Obama’s duck-and-dodge, in-and-out, out-of-sight and out-of-mind “don’t do stupid stuff” war strategy is going to make the Islamic State dissipate and disappear, think again.

Consider the words of Adam Taylor, foreign affairs reporter for The Washington Post. He described the growth of the Islamic State radicals as already;

“worryingly global. (Its) distinctive black-and-white flag was flown in London last week, and leaflets supporting it were handed out in the city’s Oxford Street on Tuesday. An American was arrested at a New York City airport this month after authorities were tipped off by his pro-Islamic State Twitter rants. The group has began publishing videos in Hindi, Urdu and Tamil in a bid to reach Indian Muslims. There are credible reports that the group is hoping to target Asian countries — and Indonesia is so worried that it banned all support for the Islamic State.”

This isn’t fear-mongering. It’s the global reality of the war on terror — not an “overseas contingency operation” as Obama calls it.

Convert or die. ISIS militants are crucifying victims because to them crucifixion is especially humiliating due to its Christian implications.

Children lie where they were killed by militants.

Islamists killing a woman by slitting her throat and capturing her blood in a bowl, holding her firm as her life literally drains from her neck. Such forms of execution are intended to intimidate others.

A distraught father in Syria holds the lifeless body of his decapitated daughter, executed by militants because she was of a Christian family. Allegedly, Christian children in Mosul are being systematically beheaded and their little heads placed on poles in a park as a warning to others who love their children.

To show how clueless our president is to the Islamic State’s brutalities and mission, consider that in an interview with The New Yorker in January, Obama used the Los Angeles Lakers basketball team and its key player, Kobe Bryant, as an analogy to suggest that the Islamic State was not a significant threat to the U.S. or world.

Our president said: “The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant. I think there is a distinction between the capacity and reach of (an Osama) bin Laden and a network that is actively planning major terrorist plots against the homeland versus jihadists who are engaged in various local power struggles and disputes, often sectarian.”

Obama’s “don’t do stupid stuff” foreign policy is never going to cut it — ever. Actually, it is working us right back into a war by avoidance, indecision, conciliatory compromise and wimpy passive-aggressive unilateral decisions that have no basis in war strategy or reality.

Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf said it best: “Do what is right, not what you think the high headquarters wants or what you think will make you look good.”

Lastly, my wife, Gena, and I join with millions of other Christians around the world to pray for Christians and peace-loving Muslims. We pray for their protection, deliverance and freedom.

And for Christians abroad in the war-torn Middle East, I add these words from Jerry Newcombe — prolific author, producer and columnist — who couldn’t have put it better about those who kill in the name of God:

“Jesus said to His followers that the day will come when men will kill you and think they are offering a service to God. They are deceived in thinking that God is pleased with this offering. … A harshness indeed, like the kind that could kill innocent Christians, even children, in Iraq and Syria. This barbarism should be a wake-up call to the West.”

    1. Those in DC keep saying that this can’t and won’t happen here but some of these groups are already here, they have been coming over the open border just like the bugs they are. You can check it on the FBI’s website there are any number of cells operating in this country at this time. This isil war is coming to this country and soon, the question is; are you going to be ready when it hits??

      sorry chuck you lost me at ‘1000 yrs of darkness’ dude.
      hav a nice day.

    3. I’m not sure killing the other guy while claiming your God is more merciful makes any sense from either side. I think is high time we all quit believing in make believe gods that would let us kill each other for what, … his amusement?

      Just because you’re a Christian doesn’t mean you aren’t just as wrong as Muslims. Religion is a dangerous thing.

    4. Tj,
      You’re a fool.fighting for your life is instinctual.Religion is a dangerous thing when you believe killing someone outside your beliefs is OK. Not all Muslims want to kill Christians, but the ones that do, and are currently killing for Allah, are a serious problem. Will you fight for your life when they come for you? Will you run when they grab family members or friends. I think you need to wake up and see the threat that’s here to bring you to your end. Put religion aside. Would you let someone take your life for a pair of sneakers, a car or any other item? Would you fight for principle or cower to get along? You sound like a wimp to me.

      It’s so nice that the “militants” allowed the children to place their arms under their head to rest upon before killing them. I call BULLSHIT on that photo…no blood, no visible wounds…looks like they died of BOREDOM!! More like either a staged photo…or nap time in Iraq.

    6. @Tony, So what is your point? One questionable photos makes the rest OK. Stop making excuses for these fanatics. These scum need to be exterminated with extreme prejudice.
