ISIS is a darkness that has been spreading globally for far too long. The terror and destruction they seek after all in the name of their God is like a nightmare you can’t wake-up from. If that is how we feel, can you imagine how all their victims feel? The ones that are faced with this sort of wickedness each day of their lives while the rest of us only hear stories, and rumors of stories.
It’s easy for us to brush off the horror of it all, and grow numb to the suffering of man because we are not there. We see the pictures, we hear the stories but we are not their to smell, touch, and taste the death that is being laid waste there to men, women, and children each day. To them, the nightmare is living, and they cannot even begin to imagine what it must be like to be us. If they try to, they would be blind with tears, and haunted by a hope they keep that help will arrive. All the while knowing that ‘hope’ is really just their happy place to go to, doubtful that it even has a chance of coming to pass.
Some of us feel helpless, some of us feel nothing, and some of us just feel lucky it’s them and not us. The problem with that way of thinking however is that what ISIS is doing is not isolated to one part of the world. That kind of greed, hunger for power, and darkness is never satisfied. It only wants more, and more, until there is no more to take.
It is stories like this that can bring that thought some hope. They show us that SOMEONE cares, and they are doing something about it.
A public execution was set up by Islamic State terror group ISIS. However, luckily for us things did not go as planned for them. They were interrupted in the most powerful way by a British drone, and that drone set the condemned prisoners free.
According to The U.K. Telegraph, the Ministry of Defense announced the incident Tuesday. An RAF Reaper drone managed to hit a sentry with a missile in the town of Abu Kamal in Syria on May 9 as the execution was taking place, sending the Islamic State group militants running.
The Reaper drone began by spotting the crowd gathering in a square, according to the U.K. Metro.
“When a van then unloaded two shackled prisoners in front of the crowd, it became clear that Daesh (alternate name for the Islamic State group) were organizing a public execution,” a defense ministry spokesman said.
“Given the large number of civilians present, the Reaper’s crew could not target directly the Daesh fighters about to carry out the murders,” the spokesman said. It looked like they were out of luck, until they noticed “two armed extremists (who) were stationed as sentries on the roof of a building overlooking the scene.
“A Hellfire missile was fired immediately, and scored a direct hit which not only killed one of the sentries but also brought the execution to an immediate halt, as the Daesh fighters fled the scene, and the crowd of civilians dispersed.”
BOOM! Yep that would do it! Evil got leveled, and innocents freed.
Pray for America, her president, her people, and the innocent people of this world. Prayer is more powerful than any one nation or all nations put together could ever even dream of having. It is the key in these latter days.
If you feel helpless, you are not. You have the power of prayer in your hands. Even a drone has nothing on that.
