Just when you thought this group of sickos in the Middle East couldn’t top themselves, a new report from the United Nations comes along to turn the stomach of any decent human being. According to a new report from the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, the Islamic State is committing atrocities that target children as they work to establish their so-called Caliphate.
Amongst the ill-begotten deeds against children enumerated in the report: the use of the mentally-challenged as suicide bombers and human shields, mass executions, crucifixions, torture, and rape. The report even says that the UN has received reliable reports that ISIS has buried children alive.
Apparently armed with the talent of understatement, UN committee expert Renate Winter said that they are “deeply concerned at the torture and murder of those children, especially those belonging to minorities, but not only from minorities.” It’s unclear from the context whether she is more concerned about minority children or whether ISIS has focused their evil on minority children in particular. Knowing the UN…
But that’s another subject.
Winter went on to say that ISIS was using children for various sexual purposes, training them before the age of eight to fight against the infidels, and even selling them at market as slaves. The UN recommended that Iraq “take all necessary actions to ensure the safety and protection of children and their families,” apparently believing that the destructive evil of this group would come as news to Iraqi leaders.

The report is sickening, and the tone used by the UN is almost as bad. You would almost think they were reporting on a legitimate Middle Eastern government, what with their “take necessary actions” language. Here’s a “necessary action” for you. We sound a seven-day warning, give everyone who wants to get out a chance to get out, and then we nuke this whole area until there’s nothing but radioactive sand left.
Okay, that’s probably not going to happen, but we’ve danced around this problem for long enough. The terrorists once considered Al Qaeda’s “JV team” have come into their own. Armed with a destructive ideology that apparently plays well with rebellious young Muslims around the world, they have grown to become a serious threat. In fact, they are more than a threat. They are an abomination on the Earth, engaging in the kind of barbarism that America cannot ethically permit. Yes, we’re bombing them. Yes, we’re training Iraqi troops. Yes, we’re gathering a coalition. But in the meantime, these atrocities continue. How many of us, in our lifetimes, have seen a man cooked alive in a cage? This goes beyond “war crimes” into the kind of depravity that must be eradicated from the planet.
ISIS has given an overt, deadly finger to Jordan, Japan, Britain, the United States, Iraq, Syria, and more. I have no doubt in my mind that they will reap the harvest they are now sewing. We are going to war. The only real question is how much appetite for genocide Americans have before the thought of that war is less disgusting than the thought of standing by. If it takes a direct attack on American soil, I’m afraid that ISIS will be all too willing to oblige.
