ISIS has buried thousands in mass graves August 30, 2016Posted by Tantumblogo in asshatery, demographics, disaster, Ecumenism, General Catholic, horror, martyrdom, sexual depravity, sickness, Society, unadulterated evil.
Hmmm…….the most fervent, most convicted Christians practice love, mercy, and great concern for their fellow man. The most fervent, most convicted muslims almost universally practice murder, domination, and cruelty to an unbelievable extreme.
Anyone see the difference?*
It seems ISIS has buried thousands of bodies in mass graves throughout the territory it has conquered, and even brags about this fact in various media:
Between them, the two scenes of horror on Sinjar mountain contain six burial sites and the bodies of more than 100 people, just a small fraction of the mass graves Islamic State extremists have scattered across Iraq and Syria.
In exclusive interviews, photos and research, The Associated Press has documented and mapped 72 of the mass graves, the most comprehensive survey so far, with many more expected to be uncovered as the Islamic State group’s territory shrinks. In Syria, AP has obtained locations for 17 mass graves, including one with the bodies of hundreds of members of a single tribe all but exterminated when IS extremists took over their region. For at least 16 of the Iraqi graves, most in territory too dangerous to excavate, officials do not even guess the number of dead. In others, the estimates are based on memories of traumatized survivors, Islamic State propaganda and what can be gleaned from a cursory look at the earth.
Still, even the known numbers of victims buried are staggering — from 5,200 to more than 15,000. [With thousands, probably tens of thousands, waiting to be found as ISIS is forced to retreat]
Sinjar mountain is dotted with mass graves, some in territory clawed back from IS after the group’s onslaught against the Yazidi minority in August 2014; others in the deadly no man’s land that has yet to be secured.
They aren’t just killing non-muslims. They even kill those they feel are not sufficiently pure muslims, like Shiites. The article at the link speaks of whole ravines and sinkholes filled with bodies. But Christians definitely earn a special ire from ISIS and other allied groups.
We are told that this is not true islam. But if it is not, where is the mass outrage? Where are the riots in the streets of Cairo or Karachi, like there are every time some Westerner draws a cartoon of Mohammad or says something critical of islam? That’s the most damning indictment that ISIS is not somehow counter to the beliefs of many muslims. While the “silent majority” of muslims may perhaps think ISIS goes too far, they certainly aren’t moved to oppose ISIS in any concrete way. And far, far too many muslims are quite happy to be governed by sharia, which ISIS claims to be implementing in its fullest, purest form. Heck, a majority of muslims in Britain AND Canada today claim to desire to live under sharia. Even more chilling, so do a majority of American muslims.
As we’ve seen around the world, it’s a short walk from sharia to ISIS. Saudi Arabia may not have mass graves, but they do have plentiful genital mutilation, repression of women, and a hideous intolerance of all non-sunni islamic beliefs. American servicemen cannot even wear a crucifix in public off base.
All the political and social elites who continue to tell us that islam is the “religious of peace” accomplish is the destruction of their own credibility, as if they had any. That applies doubly for those in the Church who repeat this exhausted, discredited mantra.
For Christians, however, the space between the unstoppable force of leftism and the immovable object of islam continues to shrink, and shrink, and shrink. And yet, it is Christianity alone – Catholic Christianity – that can provide a sufficient bulwark against islam. Mamby pamby secular left-leaning hedonism will fold up under the pressure of islam like a cheap green tent in a windstorm.
*- Yes, nominal Christians have certainly committed many atrocities in the past, but rarely if ever on the basis of the Christian Faith itself. Serbs murdering muslims in Bosnia 20 years ago were motivated primarily by nationalism, not religion. But ISIS, the Muslim Brotherhood, Al Qaeda, etc., all murder based specifically on the practice of their faith, as a representation of their piety and fervor. AND, more importantly, they can find numerous supports for their behavior in their false holy book (Koran) and their false tradition (haddith). In fact, since islam has always understood that which comes later in the Koran to supersede that which came earlier, the fact that most of the really bloody-minded verses, or “suras” of the Koran come later in the book means they have greater import, and supersede the more beneficent verses from the early parts.
