Religion of Peace Report: ‘ISIS Beheading Children in Iraq’

by C.Jines August 13, 2014

The headline reads: ISIS ‘Systematically Beheading Children’ in Iraq – Now, where in the world would they have gotten that idea? “When ye encounter the infidels, strike off their heads till ye have made a great slaughter among them.” – Mohammed, founder of the religion of peace…

National spokesman for Iraqi Christians and Chaldean-American businessman Mark Arabo said the “evil” being carried out by ISIS militants in Iraq now includes shocking beheadings of children, and he praised President Barack Obama for authorizing an intervention in the crisis Thursday.

“They are systematically beheading children, and mothers and fathers. The world hasn’t seen an evil like this for a generation. There’s actually a park in Mosul that they’ve actually beheaded children and put their heads on a stick,” Arabo told CNN’s Jonathan Mann last week.

“And they have them in the park. This is crimes against humanity. The whole world should come together. This is much broader than a community or faith. This is crimes against humanity and they are doing the most horrendous, the most heartbreaking things you can think of,” he explained. More

All I can say to you is, please don’t insult my intelligence with your intellectual dribble.

To the question: “Is Islam inherently a religion of peace?” We can conclude that it is, if one jettisons the Koran and Mohammad.
