The Great Tragedy Ignored by the Whole World

The situation in Iraq resulting from the Islamists of ISIS and their reign of terror and inhumanity across the swaths they have brutally spewed their own twisted idea of Islamic purity is desperate and getting more desperate day by day. We refuse to give them their claimed Caliphate recognition as these are barbarous heathens without even a shred of humanity or compassion and are worthy only of contempt. Any description I might feebly attempt to describe their barbarity and the horrific treatment with which they have tormented the Christians, Yezidis and everybody else who fail their purity tests proving they practice their exact idea of Sunni Islam would not do their victims torture and torment justice. Perhaps the video below or linked here can provide some degree of clarity which is beyond description.



What I can express is the disgust and anger which decent people will feel should they actually become informed of the horrors being perpetrated in Iraq and Syria by ISIS over the lack of action or concern by the rest of the world, especially the United Nations and the supposedly advanced and civilized Western nations. Some credit might be granted to President Obama and the United States airmen who are finally coordinating with the Kurdish Peshmerga Militias who have established and are assisting the Christians, Yezidis and others who were stranded among the Shingal Mountains. Instead the European Union and the United Nations are almost singularly transfixed on the Hamas Israel conflict and their desire to execute Israel for war crimes and crimes against humanity. Perhaps these righteously holier than thou purveyors of all that is holy might want to investigate the horrendous crimes in Iraq and Syria by ISIS as well as Bashir al-Assad and the Syrian military.


It is not as if there are no authorities reporting to the United Nations and any international leaders who might care to investigate about the atrocities taking place in Iraq in particular. There are the reports from the Special Representative of the UN’s Secretary-General on Sexual Violence (SRSG) in Conflict Zainab Hawa Bangura along with Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Iraq Nickolay Mladenov who have reported, “We are gravely concerned by continued reports of acts of violence, including sexual violence against women and teenage girls and boys belonging to Iraqi minorities. Atrocious accounts of abduction and detention of Yazidi, Christian, as well as Turkomen and Shabak women, girls and boys, and reports of savage rapes, are reaching us in an alarming manner.” Their reports also document that possibly as many as one-thousand-five-hundred Yazidis and Christians have very likely been forced into sexual slavery. Other reports, as seen in the video, tell of young girls who were rape victims committing suicide jumping from the cliffs as they were unable to live with their shamed and damaged lives.


The horrors inflicted on these girls were done intending to make them unsuitable for marriage within their society and to shame them and their families. ISIS aims to destroy every fiber of society in order to destroy their capabilities to resist allowing them to rebuild from the ruins a society in the image they believe is demanded of them by their religious beliefs. The challenge for those residing under any area that falls under ISIS control is unachievable as the legions that populate ISIS define Islam in a manner which serves their actions and which may not concur with even other Sunni Muslims thus making it impossible for those they challenge to prove their faithfulness to answer or, in some cases, even understand their challenges, let alone answer them in an acceptable manner. The question which must be asked is will any actions be taken to bring by the so-called civilized world with all their high and mighty indignation over Israeli actions in defending their people actually apply any of that righteous indignation to focus on this real and continuing disaster caused by ISIS. Unfortunately, the answer is likely to be no, nothing will be done to address the horrors resulting from ISIS and the purification of the lands they have occupied because every ounce of their energies and indignations is reserved for Israel and forcing her surrender to the outrageous demands of the Hamas terror masters.
