The history of human civilization is replete with horrific examples of vicious barbarian hordes overrunning, conquering, pillaging, and laying to waste, torturing, murdering and enslaving peaceful innocent populations. This phenomenon is so common that during my entire lifetime it has always been occurring at least somewhere on the planet. It is happening today. It is happening now.
Barbarians are at the gate.
Unless they are stopped they’re going to continue their assault against human civilization as we know it. The Islamic State savages, whose consciousness is mired in 7th century AD religious fantasy, have vowed to create a worldwide Islamic Caliphate. Just like any other barbarian horde they’ve started out small and are slowly growing like a metastasizing cancer. They regard liberty as a dirty word.
ISIS has overrun territory; conquered and pillaged the inhabitants of several countries. Their modus operandi is to kidnap, torture, murder or enslave any peaceful innocent persons who don’t believe exactly as they do. Women and children are sold and turned into sex slaves. Men are tortured beheaded, crucified and in many cases burned alive.
If they ever get their hands on any American, Brit, Australian, Canadian, or any citizen of a western civilized nation anywhere in the world, they will not hesitate to torture and murder them in the most gruesome manner possible. The same goes for any Christian, Jew, Buddhist or any other religion, including even other Islamists who believe differently.
They are uncivilized; mindless; vicious; insane and subhuman criminals. They don’t tolerate philosophical differences of opinion or lifestyle. They have no regard for human life. Indeed, they would unhesitatingly sacrifice their own lives in furtherance of their cause because they think they’ll be rewarded in the afterlife.
Last week ISIS, for the fun of it, released a video depicting a group of its savage madmen ransacking the Mosul Museum in Iraq, and taking sledgehammers and power drills to priceless ancient artifacts as part of an orchestrated campaign to “eliminate what they view as heresy.” It shows, among other atrocities, the total destruction of a carving of an Assyrian deity that dates back to the 7th century B.C.
A man shown in the video said they were doing it because the items promoted idolatry. 'The Prophet ordered us to get rid of statues and relics, and his companions did the same when they conquered countries after him,” said the goon.
The fanatics have also blown up the Mosul Public Library, sending 10,000 books and more than 700 rare manuscripts up in flames. "These books promote infidelity and call for disobeying Allah. So they will be burned,” a bearded goon explained.
They will not respond to diplomacy. Their deluded minds are not attuned to reason or logic. They understand and respond only to the logic of force. They’ll continue on their merciless conquest until they’re eradicated like a colony of hornets in their nests. They must be killed every last one of them or they will kill us.
Barbarians are at the gate.
