  1. Kill unarmed men; throw babies into the Tigris; rape nine and younger girls and boys; kill handicapped women; and teach boys to kill! The worst kind of coward. There is only one cure for this devil. Kill and burn.

  2. The tide of war has turned against ISIL and ISIL looses yet more of what it invaded and conquered. ISIL your days of being a military force are gradually coming to an end and in time you will NOT have your self proclaimed “Islamic State” and Caliphate which are also gradually coming to an end. That’s it flee whilst you can but then Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has given orders that any fighter fleeing will be killed and you know how ISIL kills. Either way the odds are you will be killed one way or another and somehow I think you might experience eternal fire but then that is God’s decision and God will consider what you have done.
