In Syria and Iraq death is everywhere. One reporter said an Iraqi woman in Mosul claimed to have seen a “row of decapitated soldiers and policemen” on the street. Other reports spoke of “mass beheadings,” though The Washington Post was not able to confirm the tales.

But the United Nations Human Rights chief, Navi Pillay, said the summary executions “may run into the hundreds” and that she was “extremely alarmed.”

Muslim acts of terror have been wildly successful. From beheadings to summary executions to amputations to crucifixions, the terrorist group has become the most feared organization in the Middle East. That fear, evidenced in fleeing Iraqi soldiers and 500,000 Mosul residents, has played a vital role in the group’s march toward Baghdad. In many cases, police and soldiers literally ran, shedding their uniforms as they went, abandoning large caches of weapons.

The War on Christians

By Paul Marshall
http://www.weeklystandard.com/
June 23, 2014

For at least three reasons, the contemporary persecution of Christians by Muslims demands attention: It is occurring on a massive scale, it is underreported, and in many parts of the world it is rapidly growing.

A few cases do get press coverage—the desperate plight of Meriam Ibrahim, for instance, who gave birth in a Sudanese prison just the other day. She was raised a Christian, but after officials learned that her long-absent father was a Muslim, she was sentenced to death for apostasy—for leaving Islam. And since in Sudan a Muslim woman may not be married to a Christian, her marriage to her American husband was declared void, and she was convicted of adultery and sentenced to 100 lashes to be administered before her execution. These punishments will be dropped if she renounces her Christian faith, which she steadfastly refuses to do.

And, most notorious, the abduction into slavery of hundreds of schoolgirls in Nigeria on April 14 by the al Qaeda-linked Boko Haram led news cycles and tweets for a time, though the religious dimensions of the story were often played down. While the kidnapped girls include Muslims (Boko Haram regards them as apostates because of their Western education), most are Christians, seized in a predominantly Christian area and now subjected to forced conversion.

These events get media attention because they are particularly poignant, or dramatic, or involve foreigners, but our media miss countless other stories. Since the kidnappings, Boko Haram has killed—not kidnapped, killed—hundreds of people, many in the predominantly Christian Gwoza area of Borno State, destroyed 36 churches, and kidnapped at least 8 more girls. On June 1, it attacked a Christian area in neighboring Adamawa state, killing 48 people. In Sudan, a second woman, Faiza Abdalla, has been arrested on suspicion of converting to Christianity, and on April 8 a court terminated her marriage to a Catholic. Iran is imprisoning and torturing pastors from the rapidly growing house church movement, including an American citizen, Pastor Saeed Abedini. Vietnam has imprisoned over 60 Christian leaders. Eritrea holds more than 1,000 Christians in conditions so inhumane that prisoners die or are permanently crippled. In Somalia, in an ignored religious genocide, Al-Shabaab systematically hunts Christians and kills those it finds.

At least your article acknowledges a Israeli/Palestinian conflict. As long as Hamas keeps firing rockets into Israel, there will be more deaths.
You didn't mention the fact that the U.S. and the U.N. approved the State of Israel. It's ironic how Hitler's holocaust produced world wide empathy and sympathy for the Jewish people which was a major factor in the establishment of the State of Israel. What satan means for evil, God means for good.
The following is an honest evaluation of the actual numbers Re: "Raining Hamas Rockets" from an Israeli Intelligence service ........not IDF's inflated figures that include an ax killing as from a Hamas rocket.

“Dissecting IDF propaganda: The numbers behind the rocket attacks”
http://mondoweiss.net/2012/11/dissecting-idf-...

source Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center (ITIC).

EXCERPTS “To begin, Israeli spokespeople frequently remind the world that a million Israeli citizens are within range of Gaza rockets, twelve thousand of which have been fired into Israel in the last twelve years, inflicting thousands of injuries and several dead.
However, we are rarely told exactly how many people have been killed by these rocket attacks.” CONTINUED

Throughout the years of rocket attacks into Israel, a total of 26 people have been killed altogether.

Throughout the years of rocket attacks into Israel, a total of 26 people have been killed altogether.

Operation Cast Lead (December 27, 2008–January 18, 2009) and Operation Pillar of Cloud:
more than one out of every four deaths occurred during these two operations, which were ostensibly designed to deter rocket attacks.

For the entire duration of the 2008 Hamas–Israel cease-fire—even after Israel had broken the cease-fire on Nov. 4—not a single person was killed by rocket or mortar fire into Israel.

“And for an entire year before Operation Pillar of Cloud, not a single Israeli was killed by rocket or mortar
This disputes the clichéd notion that rocket attacks are “designed to maximize civilian casualties.” Indeed, with such a low fatality rate and with the characteristic imprecision of the weapons, they cannot be expected to inflict a fatality most of the time.

every year listed, the IDF’s rocket fatalities number is higher than what has been established.

Jewish Israeli taxi driver was strangled to death by three Palestinians as revenge for the IDF killing of a relative. Outside of that, a 16-year old boy in the Bat Ayin settlement was killed by a lone Palestinian with an axe,

We can add to the embarrassment by referring to a page about “The Hamas Terror War Against Israel” on the website of the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which reproduces both the IDF bar chart and rocket numbers as reported by ITIC—contradictory information, presented together in a single page by the Israeli government, in order to explain “The Hamas Terror War Against Israel.”CONTINUED

I've never maintained that either side is blameless of killing, I only note that no one has endured a brutal & illegal Occupation without Resistance.

Israel has the option to cease expanding its Occupation. Doing so would open the possibility of Peace. Until then, the native Palestinians will do as all Occupied people have done over the centuries; Resist with whatever they have (i.e. The French etc Resistance groups were reviled as "terrorists" too)

If Israel would withdraw to the legal '67 Borders, the Arabs would definitely make peace. They do not want to "drive the Jews into the sea",( that phrase is of Israeli origin.

Israel doesn't want to make peace & has clearly proven so by expanding settlements during "Peace Talks" & does so with reward in US Aid

I don't expect to change any minds here but just to present little known realities

You can be sure that lil' JJ already delights in the torment of the weaker, the hungry, the homeless, the poisoned and the persecuted......

Except....

When they're of the Master Race/Chosen People

Israel Shamir (the author below) is among the many ethical Jews who are repulsed by the atrocities committed by their deranged brethren

“Zionism for Dummies”
http://www.israelshamir.net/shamirReaders/eng... \

EXCERPTS “What the Palestinian- Israeli conflict is all about then is the destruction of the Palestinian people and their evacuation and the complete takeover of Palestine to the Jordan River by the Jewish state.&#8232;&#8232;Th us in 1937, Ben Gurion stated in a letter to his son in 1937:

“We must expel the Arabs and take their places and if we have to use force, to guarantee our own right to settle in those places  then we have force at our disposal.”
And in early 1948 Ben Gurion wrote in his War Diary,

"During the assault we must be ready to strike the decisive blow; that is, either to destroy the towns or expel its inhabitants so our people can replace them."

And in February 1948, Ben Gurion told Yoseph Weitz, director of the settlement of the Jewish National Fund and head of the official Transfer Committee of 1948:

“The war will give us land. The concept of 'ours' and 'not ours' are peace concepts, only, in war they lose their whole meaning.”

And in 1940, Joseph Weitz, who was head of  land purchasing for the World Jewish Organization, and head of one of several ‘transfer committees’(committees to study ways of transferring the Arabs from Palestine) wrote:

“Between ourselves it must be clear that here is no room for both peoples together in this country. We shall not achieve our goal if the Arabs are in this country.

There is no other way than to transfer the Arabs from here to neighboring countries – all of them. Not one village, not one tribe, should be left.”

And in 1983, Raphael Eytan, then chief of staff of the Israeli Defence Forces, said,
“We declare openly that the Arabs have no right to settle on even one centimeter of Eretz Israel …

Force is all they do or ever will understand. We shall use the ultimate force until the Palestinians come crawling to us on all fours….When we have settled the land, all the Arab will be able to do will be to scurry around like drugged cockroaches in a bottle.”

Exactly why the indigenous people of Palestine do not have right to live on the land of their and their ancestors births, or why the colonial European Jews have this right, Mr. Eytan is silent.

And in 2002. Moshe Yaalon, chief of staff of the Israeli Defense Force, said,
“The Palestinians must be made to understand in the deepest recesses of their consciousness that they are a defeated people.”

One thing is certain: Israel is not the victim, as it is constantly screaming, but the victimizer.&#8232;What then is the conflict all about?

What is the theme that runs through the entire history of Zionism?&#8232;It is about the ongoing program of Zionism to destroy the Palestinians as a people and to assume possession of their ancestral land."CONTINUED

More & more Jews & non Jews are equally repulsed by the daily monstrosities committed by the Zionist Occupiers
----------
OTHER FACTS:

The phrase we hear so frequently: "push all the Jews into the sea, dead or alive". has a Jewish origin and not an Arab origin. Mr Ben Gurion is the originator of the phrase,
11 October 1961; Prime Minister David Ben Gurion

Exposing your obsession, indeed love for mental illness, maggots and Somalia (ever been Ratty?) which frankly has never appealed to me as a holiday resort, does not alter the facts on the ground Ratty, vermin, fool and Jew stooge for an Occupation of innocents. Let me reiterate my earlier post because your learning difficulties require a 'rote' approach to education. Now firstly, again if I may be so bold, I only speak truth and if truth rings a bell of 'halitosis' in your mind that says more about you, Ratty, than the truth you will most certainly discover lies at the very heart of all I say. Now for your personal edification, Ratty:
Whatever I say regard as truth Ratty. Do not be insolent and question my veracity. I am not here to praise Jews but to condemn those Jews who are thieves, who bulldoze the homes of others for Jew expansionism in Palestine, who kill, who commit infanticide, who use illegal chemical weapons on innocents, who commit genocide against peoples of the world such as the Palestinians, Russians and Africans, who mock Christ the Messiah and by secondary means, the Lord God, Great Master of Creation.
I have spoken, Ratty. Be sure and understand it, little stool in the shape of Vermin.
You are the maggot. You are the one who is watched, and censored. You are the one who believes Anglicans, Catholics, Jews and Free Masons are out to get you. You are the one who disturbs your neighbors and you are the one who will be deported to Somalia.

There is no excuse for your persistent halitosis, paranoia and chronic unemployment. Stop blaming others for it. No matter how you try to spin it, you are the one with a psychiatric history. Own it!

Counting rockets and the dead does not justify Hamas firing rockets into Israel at will. Hamas fires those rockets purposely from civilian populated areas.

There is no guarentee there would be peace if Israel returned to the "67 borders. Gaza is a good example of that.
