No details yet, just this from the AP.

 

The first thing that comes to mind from this news is Boko Haram and its kidnapping of all those girls. It’s still holding most of them, but has reportedly forced some to become suicide bombers.

If anything, the scale of evil that ISIS represents eclipses that of even Boko Haram. ISIS has been beheading Iraqis, mainly Christians, by the scores in recent days, including beheading children.

The Obama administration’s response is far from adequate, and appears to be driven by the idea that “Whatever you do, don’t help anyone under attack from Islam.”

More: Fox adds some details.

The spokesman for Iraq’s human rights ministry says hundreds of women from the Yazidi religious minority have been taken captive by militants from the Islamic State group.

Kamil Amin says the women are below the age of 35 and some are being held in schools in Iraq’s second largest city, Mosul. He said the ministry learned of the captives from their families.

Update: Moqtada al-Sadr (remember him — “Mullah Atari?”) says he’s prepping his men to defend Baghdad from an ISIS offensive against the Iraqi capital.

NAJAF – One of Iraq’s most influential Shiite clerics, Moqtada Sadr, claimed Friday that jihadists were poised to attack Baghdad and he vowed to send his men to defend the capital.

“There are terrorist groups that have completed their preparations for a breakthrough into Baghdad,” the cleric said in a statement.

“We are ready to defend the city, we are ready to supply forces and coordinate with the authorities to face any scenario,” said Sadr, who announced the creation of the Saraya al-Salam (Peace Brigades) group in the aftermath of the jihadist offensive that began in June.

The force includes former fighters from his now dissolved Mahdi Army that fought US troops 10 years ago.

Rape rooms and woodchippers were not our concern, and a tribe nobody ever heard of before two days ago is not our concern.

Syrians being chemically assassinated is not our concern.

Planes being shot down in the Ukraine is not our concern.

Israel's response to 3500 rockets raining down on their heads being DISPROPORTIONATE....now THAT is something to be concerned about!

Dude, saving Christians, Jews and Kurds was like, two years ago!

We've moved on.

We have more important things to attend to.

Hazidi women have been captured? I don't see the problem. According to the Qu'ran, these are "women of the right hand", who can be used as sexual slaves, just like Muhammad did back in 630 or so. These ISAS dudes are just following Muhammad's principles and emulating his behavior. What's the problem? After all, Islam is a "Religion of Peace" -- isn't that what we have been told? Let the poor Muslims have their way -- right?

The real essential question is, "Will we wake up, before we ourselves become dhimmis -- compliant subjects who pay a special tax, dress in special clothes, and bow down to Muslims, as their superiors."

You decide, but decide soon, because our liberty is slipping away,

Michael Medved said that one of the girls who was kidnapped by Boko Haram ended up in Mosul.

If that is true, WTF are we doing?

Obviously not much.

There are being good muslims and emulating mohammad. As Allen West said, they are doing exactly what the koran and hadith tell them to do.

Western civilization can spend the next decade ( if we last that long )
Trying to contain and defeat the Jihadist forces of Islam.
We can keep struggling in the quest for the Democratization of Islamic states which we already did and failed at after investing billions in money and blood.
We can try to strengthen the so-called 'moderate branches of Islam, if there is one. They're either being cowed Into silence or winking and nodding to their Islamist brothers.
We can continue to use drones and special forces and police actions but so far That hasn't been effective. The violent Jihadists reproduce faster than we can neutralize them.
We can try making nice with the organizations of 'Soft-Jihadists' who advance Sharia and Jihad through usually peaceful and legal
Means (like the Muslim Brotherhood Obama's been backing for
The last six years) but that backfired.
The problem of violent Islamic Jihad is more widespread and virulent today than it was even at the height of its glory days when Hordes of Jihadists Advanced on Spain and other parts of Europe, something happening again even at this moment. For Over 1400 years of Jihadist violence, of murder and enslavement, forced conversions, and abuse Of women and children ...and yet still In this modern day and age Islam remains more a retro-sixth century ideology of bloody conquest than anything resembling a religion of peace and harmony.
The world can't wait for this backward cult of Muhammad to somehow 'reform' itself.
Not when nuclear and chemical weapons of Jihad very soon will be within the reach Of religious psychopaths and end-of-days fanatics who yearn for martyrdom.
When a beehive is burnt the surviving bees are disoriented
And dispersed. Certainly there are many angry bees initially but then they lose their ability to sting and just Disappear and scatter into the countryside and soon die.
There's a lesson in this. The hive is in Mecca. It's called the
Kaaba. Or we can continue getting stung for the rest of history!
