Radical Islamic Terrorists are brutal, heartless scumbags – their stories are even worse. What did you expect though from rapists, terrorists and animals who brutally decapitate their victims? The stories are horrendous.
The #WeAreN2016 Congress, an international event centering on religious freedom, took place at the end of April in New York to highlight the persecution that Christians and other religious minorities have faced around the world. The stories that took place were pretty brutal.
One account told of a couple whose children had been captured by ISIS militants. When theyn answered their door one day, they found a plastic bag on their doorstep. It contained the body parts of their daughters and a video of them being raped and tortured.
Another recalled a Christian woman from Mosul who answered the door to find ISIS foreign fighters, demanding that she leave or pay a jizya tax.
She asked for a few seconds, her daughter being in the shower, but the fighters refused to give her the time. They put a torch to the house, burning and eventually killing her daughter.
The girl died in her mother’s arms, but her last words were “Forgive them.”
These were the stories that emerged from a conference on Christian persecution that took place in New York City on Thursday.
Several of the stories were recounted by Jacqueline Isaac, a human rights attorney and vice president of the advocacy group Roads of Success.
Her mother, president of the group, had testified before British Parliament the previous week after having returned from Homs, Syria. Isaac relayed many of her stories, noting both the savage and vicious acts being committed, and the stories of heroism and forgiveness.
“See, in the midst of darkness, there is light, and it is that light that has us sitting here today, because when there is light, there is hope,” she said.
Isaac was one of the speakers at the #WeAreN2016 international congress on religious freedom, which is took place from April 28-30 in New York City. It is the second annual conference held to bring attention and awareness to the plight of Christians and other persecuted religious minorities, particularly in the Middle East. The “N” stands for the Arabic letter “nun,” spray-painted mockingly onto the houses of Christians in Mosul, Iraq by the Islamic State referring to them as “Nazarenes.”
On Thursday morning, the congress was held at the United Nations headquarters and sponsored by the Permanent Observer Mission of the Holy See to the U.N. It featured testimonies on the persecution of Christians from victims of ISIS, missionaries in Syria, and other religious and civic leaders.
Speakers shared horrific descriptions of ISIS atrocities.
Fighting back tears, 15 year-old Samia Sleman told about her six months as an ISIS captive. Speaking through a translator, the Yazidi teenager said that her family was captured in August of 2014. Her father, uncle, and grandfather are all still in ISIS captivity.
Their captors separated the men and the women and took their possessions. For the thousands of women in captivity, they raped the girls as young as seven years old and forced them to convert to Islam. Some of the older women were deemed unworthy to keep as sex slaves and killed.
“Why are these innocent kids and these innocent people suffering this much in that region?” Sleman asked.
“Why don’t we see any action being taken? Even though it’s been over a year and a half now, we’ve seen horrible things happen to use minorities, especially Yazidis and Christians, in that region, and we don’t see the international community taking concrete actions against the Islamic State.”
I can’t imagine the pain and anguish both mentally and physically that Samia Sleman has experienced. She’s 15 years of age – a teenager who’s life has been tramatized. What’s more horrifying is the fact that girls half her age are being raped and tortured as well. These are some sick, scumbags that need to be put in prison and killed for their horrific atrocities.
Thank goodness for the good Samaritan that helped Samia Sleman escape these ISIS animals. She is a courageous young woman, but what choice did she really have with these ISIS butchers and rapists? Can you imagine 45 members of your family still in captivity?
But don’t worry, Obama still thinks of ISIS as the “JV team” and if he has it his way, several of these scumbags will continue to infiltrate into America with all of the other illegals, so Democrats can have enough votes in the next election. And who wouldn’t want to come to America and get all the “free stuff” that Democrats are giving away?
I hope we get a real leader in the White House soon who will finally stand up to these scumbags and annihilate each and every one of these animals still roaming the Earth.
God Bless America and God Bless the Christians, like Samia Sleman who are being persecuted and tortured by these brutal extremists.
