In just one day, ISIL members committed a series of horrific crimes which illustrate their hostile nature, said Iraqi police in Nineveh spokesman Maj. Ahmed al-Obaidi.

They torched 11 churches and monasteries out of 35 scattered across the city of Mosul, and hours later destroyed statues of poets, literary and historical figures of which Mosul has long been proud,” he said.

  1. The COIS, Criminal Oranisation of the Islamic State, has nothing to do with religion. It is a simply a criminal organization just as the N**i party was a criminal organisation. So, do not even think of it as religion. Religion is the facade to justify extortion, murder, killing POW’s, bank robbery and perhaps even prostitution. The leader of COIS is no different than any other narcissistic psychopath. Just the same as Hitler. Criminals use any and all facades to cover their tracks. Al-Baghdadi, der Fuehrer of the criminal organisation is running his own mafia. All the dupes and fools he has conned into believing otherwise are walking into a death trap in Iraq. Young, brainwashed simpletons who can’t think their way out of a paper bag can be conned and duped into killing. That is why they are simpletons!

  2. Thats not humanity, United Nation should take a serious action against those peoples! they are killing everyone who ever coming in front of them and destoring mosques, shrines, churchs, almost everything, they are not muslims, world muslims should declare them as a kafir and anti-muslims to secure the important places of muslims history! God Bless Islam God Bless Iraq

  3. Why is United Nations and Human Rights not taking any military action against Isis they are killing innocent human beings.
    Why ?????

  4. Thats not humanity,please take a serious action for this bledy hell terriosts .PLease making first after all happens not take any action.

  5. Allahu Akbar
    Allahu Akbar
    Allahu Akbar
    Allahumma Solli Alaa Saiyidina Muhammad Waa Alaa Aalihi Saidina Muhammad
    Ya Allah,please Save All Muslims n Innocent Peoples

  6. This very barbaric actions of few insane people and all the countries they are simply watching and not taking any action. The United Nation should come in support of the innocent human being.

  7. The Isis are not human nor Muslims. All the countries should take actions against this criminals and they should be killed .They cannot live after what have they done..May Allah give them the most severe punishment. It’s time for the world union to take serious action and save the innocent people in Iraq and it’s shrines. May Allah give us strength to fight against Terrerist. It’s a shame if the world union organisation cannot take action? Why

  8. I feel sad to see lives being destroyed.
    But God is in control.

    In China, Chairman Mao attacked Christianity and traditional Chinese beliefs — destroying churches and forcing Christianity underground . Now, many years later, we see God’s love in China as many turn to Jesus

    It may be that God is using ISIS to purify and remove idolatry before he pours out his love and mercy.

    • God is not “in control.” If He was, tragedies like this would not occur. God gives mankind free will, to do good or evil, and will judge their deeds in due time.

  9. This reminds me so much of when they destroyed the Bamiyan Buddhas back in 2001. I am equally heartbroken at this desecration of the sacred graves of the saints – far better people than ISIL ever could be. I mourn with the Shia hurt by this. My heart goes out to you, my Brothers and Sisters.

  10. This is all outcome of political mess created by the leadership of muslim world who have ,for their power lust, fallen prey to the trap created by the USA and its allies. In fact the so called human right champions are happy to see muslims killing each other. Unless muslim world leadership do not join their heads with sincere hearts the mulim blood will soak the soil of whole world and that is what west want.

  11. The people who are destroying Mosques, religious sites and churches and even demolishing the shrines of saints and Nabi (A.S) are biggest criminals of this era. they are neither Muslims nor Humans. They must be awarded the death penalty by all means.They are “Criminals of the World”. we must take immediate action against these terrorists. the muslim Leaders should wake-up now, because its NOW or NEVER issue

  12. Ashaq Zaidi- no that is not what the ‘west’ or USA wants. What we want is for all people to have the right to worship, the right to free speech, the right to an education, food, a warm bed, clean water, healthcare and peace. Your attitude causes war, not the ‘westerners’.

  13. No sane Man should accept what ISIS is doing as religion. Just like Boko Haram in my country Nigeria, the demons are only using Islam as platform of the evil mission. The world must admit this as the major blunder by US. US and its Western allies armed and trained Al-Nusra, FSA, Islamic state of Iraq to destroy Syria Forces and kill President Asaad and here we are witnessing the manipulation of America in Islamic countries. ISIS is not just a threat to the Gulf region and Islamic world but it is a menace to the world peace.
