I regret that I must post material which is so graphic in nature. Western and European news media outlets are ignoring these events, which is utterly beyond my comprehension and is quite suspicious as well. Let me state the sorry facts here and now: If you ignore this, it WILL NOT go away. It will be at your doorstep within months. Wake up America, Wake UP EU. Pay attention and begin reporting these stories, while you can. Pay attention to what is happening in Iraq.

As part of their psychological war to create a medieval-style caliphate, the Islamic State has released a new shocking video showing scenes of mass executions, warning Iraqi soldiers and others who dare to resist that they will be rounded up and killed.
The Islamic State, formerly known as ISIS/ISIL, stormed through areas of northern Iraq last month, building on territory they had already seized in western Iraq and Syria.
The 36-minute video clip was released for the Eid holiday marking the end of Ramadan, sheds a disturbing light on the mentality of the Islamic State extremists and the methods they use as the organization presses on with its campaign of hatred and murder.
The video begins with IS fighters sweeping through a town in quick hit raids. The insurgents then stand over dozens of…

EU ignoring Iraqi displacement crisis – Smith
Fianna Fáil spokesperson on Foreign Affairs Brendan Smith TD is calling on Minister Charlie Flanagan to prioritise the escalating displacement crisis in Iraq and to move this situation up the European agenda at the next meeting of EU Foreign Ministers. France has now offered asylum to the thousands of Christians, who have been forced to flee their homes because of the threat from the Islamist jihadists group ISIS.
Deputy Smith commented:
“What is happening in Northern Iraq is appalling. ISIS is engaged in very straightforward, brutal, but largely unreported ethnic cleansing. Northern Iraq was home to one of the oldest Christian communities on earth, with Mosul having been a centre of Christianity for almost 2,000 years. Today, under death threats, the Christian community has fled in what has been described as the largest mass flight of Christians…

Even for a region as consistently unstable as the Middle East, the past couple of months have provided a ceaseless barrage of Murphy’s Law: everything that could go wrong, has. From the escalating conflict between Israel and Palestine to the growing influence and territory of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) to the continuing civil war in Syria, the sheer scale of volatility has led several noted experts to propose that the Middle East is entering another phase. The following will consider how the region manages to constantly evolve while it may seem that all this news is just history repeating itself.
As difficult as it may be to imagine, the recent uptick in violent Salafi Jihadi movements make the decade-long hunt for Al Qaeda seem like a simpler time. The Syrian civil war combined with Iranian-Saudi posturing through sectarian proxies has complicated the landscape. Seth…

Wow.. This guy, Bill Donohue, has it exactly right. Obama has been breathtakingly silent on the genocide being committed on Christians in the middle east by the likes of ISIS in Syria and Iraq. He has done NOTHING to help thwart that. Shame on him! We’ve discussed here several measures that Obama could easily take TODAY without having to put very many, if any, American boots on the ground to help fight back against this genocide of Christians including: using American air assets (i.e. drones, Army Apache helicopters, Air Force A-10 Warthogs, etc.) to take out ISIS troops, sending “military advisors” (i.e. U.S. Army Special Forces) to Baghdad to help train, equip, and motivate Iraqi troops who may be a little apprehensive about fighting ISIS (many of whom are just laying down their weapons we’ve supplied them and running…
