Here in America, and indeed Western civilization, we have game shows and contests that test one’s intellectual capability — like “Jeopardy.” Of course when we’re watching these shows, many of us play along in our homes knowing that we may not win, but we cheer along someone to get the big prize — tangible goods or monetary. We have spelling contests and debates which are competitions that sharpen our minds — and I remember growing up in Fort Street United Methodist Church in Atlanta and preparing for the Bible quizzes against other church youth groups. It was all about church pride and knowledge of our scriptures — and the folks were proud to say their kid had memorized scripture and understood Biblical history.
So, while we’re here in America chasing our tails about Confederate flags and having to suffer a president dropping the N-word, there is a different type of religious knowledge show going on…and slavery still exists.
As we reported yesterday, per the Daily Mail, the barbarous jihadis of the so-called Islamic State have reportedly held a Koran memorizing competition in which the top prizes include a Yazidi sex slave.
As well as sex slaves, the (contest) promises cash rewards for fourth and fifth prize. The competition is set to be held in several ISIS mosques in Syria, including the Osama bin Laden mosque.
I know, I am an “Islamophobe” for once again bringing this to your attention, according to the mindless lemmings of the “coexist” crowd. How can anyone dismiss this and not realize that we are allowing evil to exist in our times?
Recently the U.S. commander of our nuclear forces compared Vladmir Putin’s Russia and their actions in Crimea and Ukraine to Nazi Germany. The apologetics and denial has to end at some point, although when we have a liberal media machine more concerned with historical flags and slavery — well, slavery is happening right now under our noses. And by the way, I don’t need any reparations; Angela and I are doing very well on our own, thanks to this land of opportunity.But how do we explain our lack of commitment to face this blatant evil? A doggone Koran contest to win a female slave? And this is happening in the 21st century, this 7th century insanity? And please, don’t give me the “we just killed one of them with a drone strike” response — drones are not a strategy. It is utterly inconceivable that these savage barbarians would have the sense to promulgate this publicly for all of us to see and know. It’s as if they’re taunting the civilized world, and we wonder why there are nutcases all over the world flocking to be a part of this cult of death? Heck, they’re winning and thumbing their noses at us as we run around stupidly ranting about flags and making up a problem that doesn’t exist all because of one racist sociopath.
And before our eyes, this level of depravity continues.The contest in Syria plays upon two major ISIS themes, said Ryan Mauro, national security analyst for the New York-based Clarion Project: They are the ones who most closely follow “true” Islam and the Islamic State is a “legitimate” state. The contest and its underlying competition demonstrate that fighters are studying the Koran, and that ISIS is not affected by international condemnation.
“By showcasing its slavery, ISIS is boasting that it practices Islam in its most literal interpretation, doesn’t capitulate to public opinion and rejects modern interpretations,” Mauro said. “It is also showing it has a functional Islamic educational system and therefore is a real caliphate.”
So I suppose folks are going to tell us all that ISIS is reading from a different Koran. You know, “let me make myself clear, ISIS is not Islamic” — well Mr. President, please ‘splain to us just what are they reading during Ramadan. Hey, I’ve got an idea, perhaps during Ramadan, President Obama will have a contest for the remaining GITMO unlawful enemy combatants and those who best memorize the Koran can go free! Oops, I forgot, they don’t need a contest; he’s just letting them go anyway.
“Last November, ISIS reportedly unveiled a menu of sorts for women and children for sale with women 40 and 50 years old sold for just $40, girls between 10 and 20 years old auctioned for $129 each, and children under 10 commanding higher prices. A Human Rights Watch report issued in April documented continued organized rapes, sexual assault, and other horrific crimes against Yazidi women and girls kidnapped from their homes and held as captives in Iraq and Syria. The United Nations envoy on sexual violence reported in June that girls and women are being traded for as little as a pack of cigarettes, citing testimony of girls and women who were able to escape their captors.”
There are two reasons why I despise Islamic jihadists — Aubrey and Austen. And any man with daughters should want only one thing, to send these bastards straight to the hell they deserve. Unfortunately that will not happen with the current occupants of the White House — funny, he should have the same two reasons.
But once again, the liberal left is successfully turning us away from the real issues to focus on its agenda.
