Good but sad – Syriac Christian women fighting ISIS January 19, 2016Posted by Tantumblogo in Basics, Christendom, disaster, Ecumenism, General Catholic, horror, mortification, persecution, sadness, scandals, Society.
Syriac Christian women, tired of seeing their region overrun by fire-breathing mohammadans and exposed to rape, theft, murder, and all the other attendant evils, have taken up arms, forming at least some kind of reserve force in the area. I’m glad to see anyone defending these ancient Christian communities so under threat, but at the same time, it’s far from ideal for women to ever have to serve in combat:
…….The Syriac Christians Brigade is an all-female fighting force made up of Syrian Christian women and mothers who refuse to submit to ISIS, or Daesh as they like to call them.
The women all speak and pray in Aramaic, the native language of Jesus of Nazareth from the Bible. [Have we really fallen so far that we now have to present Jesus with references, as in that guy from that book from way back when?] In contrast to the suicide bombers some female ISIS recruits aspire to become, the Syriac Christians Brigade hopes to hone their battle skills, with some even desiring to become snipers.
Some of the women were encouraged to become fighters by their husbands who also serve as soldiers. “I’m a practicing Christian, and thinking about my children makes me stronger and more determined in my fight against Daesh (ISIS),” said a female fighter named Babylonia. Her husband encouraged her to fight “against the idea that the Syriac woman is good for nothing except housekeeping and make-up.”
Remembering the massacres in 1915 of Syriac, Assyrian and Chaldean Christians was a good enough reason for some of the females to join the fight against ISIS. Eighteen-year-old Ithraa told AFP that “We are a community that is oppressed by others,” and that she and her female comrades hope to prevent “a new massacre like that committed by the Ottomans… when they tried to erase our Christian and Syriac identity.”
As Western Journalism has reported, ISIS fighters fear being killed by a woman on the battlefield. According to the tradition followed by these terrorists, death at the hand of a female is a one-way ticket to hell.
OH then I have a solution for ISIS in a heartbeat!
Normally I oppose women in combat, but this would simply make too much sense and be far too easy.
Or just have a woman press the bomb release button in a B-52. Whatever it takes.
It’s only a measly 100 kt but there should still be dozens in service.
