ISIS Terrorism Discussion

There's debates about it but I live in Texas and we were never taught Creationism in school. There are states where apparently they allow you to "critically a--lyze" evolution, but really no one cares. The students don't care. It's mostly these outside groups that are trying to ban evolution being thaught in schools.

yeah, and it's a hot issue there. that's what i was saying, that i thought such mistakes in the western world were mostly still being held onto by just the us.

Christians in Lebanon's Bekaa Valley have begun arming themselves in preparation for an Isis (now known as the Islamic State) offensive as it seeks to expand its territorial control outside of Syria.

Up to 3,000 militants from the Islamic State and other jihadists occupy the mountain range between Lebanon and Syria near the Sunni town of Arsal.

As IS seek to grab land outside of the mountain caves and farms they currently control, Christian volunteers have now created village defence forces to protect against the Sunni militants who have taken up to 21 Lebanese soldiers and policemen hostage.

"We are a minority and we are under threat by the jihadists," Rifaat Nasrallah, a commander of the volunteer guards in the Greek Catholic town of Ras Baalbek, said.

"It wasn't the idea of anyone in particular," Nasrallah says of the formation of defence units. "The whole village felt in danger so we all agreed it was necessary."

"We don't shoot if we see someone or something moving in the mountains," said one of the watchmen. "We just call the Army and they investigate."

Ras Baalbek has a population of 15,000 and is  separated from the flashpoint town of Arsal by a range of hills.

"Imagine if Islamic State makes it into Ras Baalbek and they crucify a Christian. It will set Lebanon alight," a western diplomat in the Lebanese capital of Beirut, speaking on condition of anonymity, told The Times.

There are approximately 2.4m Chrisitans in Lebanon, 20pc of the total population.

The terror group has continued to crack down on religious freedom since the announcement of its Islamic "caliphate", straddling the Iraqi-Syrian border.

The Sunni jihadists have taken over Iraq's largest Christian town of Qaraqosh causing thousands of residents to flee towards Kurdistan region.

They also issued an ultimatum to Christians in the city of Mosul to convert to their radical form of Islam or be forced to either pay a tax, leave the city or be harmed for refusal to convert.

The city is now reportedly empty of Christians as hundreds of families fled following the ultimatum of death or a historic contract ‒ known as "dhimma"‒ where non-Muslims can receive protection if they pay a fee known as a "jizya"

Just give the Syrian government weapons and let them deal with ISIS with the help of turkey and the kurds and they will be gone in a couple of months. What will happen though is ISIS will run away from the bombs to damascus the capital of syria and then the US will have to bomb in syria witch russia and syria told the US that they will fight back if the US bombed in Syria.. and another war will happen and most likely the US will do exactly what they did in iraq and invade syria and terrorists will hate the US even more and it will all start all over again.

***THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS STORY, IT WILL BE UPDATED WHEN NEW INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE***

 

A video purporting to show the beheading of British hostage Alan Henning has been released by Islamic State militants.

 

 


The Salford taxi driver was delivering aid to Syria in December when he was kidnapped then held hostage by IS.

 

IS had threatened to kill him in a video showing the killing of UK hostage David Haines released last month.

 

On Tuesday, Mr Henning's wife Barbara appealed for his release, saying: "He is innocent."

 

IS has previously released videos showing the apparent beheadings of two US journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff, and Briton Mr Haines.

 

 

PLEASE NOTE: This video is yet to be verified.
