The Kurdish people are the ones giving the best signals of being reasonable and capable of taking care of their portion of Iraq. They deserve better support from the free world.

It is being reported that Isis are being funded by Suni Sheiks in Kuwait. And of course the present administration sits on its hands throwing parties for more butchers. There will come a day when God will have his vengence on all the butchers of Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Nigeria, etc.

so much for tolerance. Where is the Islamic outrage on this sort of treatment of “people of the book”?


#6

Is that because they’re the “religion of peace”?

Praying to Our Lady Queen of Peace.

The situation is not good. These folks are not just killing Christians, but any who don’t practice their brand of Islam. The unrest could certainly spread much wider.
