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.

Fore!

ISIS being disowned by Al Quaida for extreme violence and CRUELTY is analogous to being thrown out of the SS for being too cruel to Jews.

Think on this the American trained Iraqis are useless cowardly warriors. But the ISIS forced who are comprised of the SAME ARABS are ruthless merciless soldiers sweeping all before them.
Now why do you think that is ? I'll tell you the ISIS are MUSLIMS that believe in what they are doing while the Iraqis are MUSLIMS that don't.
ISIS are why MUSLIMS really are and the IRAQI Army is the fruits of what deluded Western Politicians and Left wing moonbats THINK that Muslims are.
ISLAM is incompatible with DEMOCRACY or CHRISTIANITY, or BUDDHISM or HINDUISM or ANIMISM.

The Lame Stream EneMedia , Western Politicians and Left wing moonbats have a big problem talking about what is happening in the Middle East , Africa and lets face it all over the world with Muslims. They have expended so much time and effort telling us how peaceful, moderate and intelligent MUSLIMS are which is why they have to use so many EUPHEMISMS and ADJECTIVES to describe the way so many, and lets face it the MAJORITY, of MUSLIMS behave under pressure . They twist themselves in to pretzels trying to explain why HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS if not MILLIONS of Muslims don't seem to follow the same ISLAM that only exists in their own fevered imaginings.

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.
