Lovely...Boko Haram Follows ISIS Lead - Burns Civilians Alive.

Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists in Syria appear to have started a new trend when they released video on Tuesday of themselves burning a Jordanian pilot to death; officials in Cameroon reported on Thursday that Boko Haram Islamist terrorists have shot and burned to death at least 91 civilians.

The slaughter occurred during two days of fighting in a town near the Nigerian border named Fotokol, and aside from the murdered another 500 were reportedly wounded, reports The Associated Press.

Around 800 jihadists of the terror group that has been waging a five-year Islamist insurgency in Nigeria crossed the border to take part in the massacre, in which they "burned churches, mosques and villages and slaughtered youth who resisted joining them to fight Cameroonian forces," Information Minister Issa Tchiroma Bakari told the news agency.

He added that livestock and food were also raided during the fighting, noting that the violence broke out on Wednesday and has been blazing on into Thursday. Schools have also been burned down by the terrorists, whose name Boko Haram means "Western education is forbidden."

7. Yes that's true about those religions.

 

They give people excuses to do evil, though only these criminals are responsible for their bad behavior.

Unfortunately Sam Harris condones violence also, so religion is just one excuse among many selfish excuses for evil.

2. Thanks to Fox embedding the entire 23 minute Jordanian pilot video ISIS was able to spread their message

far and wide with ease. ISIS even officialy thanked them for it and urged followers and possible recruits to link to it as it originated in America and could not be blocked as it was embedded.

Video terror instructional video produced by ISIS, world wide distribution by Fox. Fox must also burn.

4. We had someone here who complained he had personally linked to it at 3 social media sites...

...and two of them were deleted.

The remaining site was DU, and I hope it got deleted here, too.

3. They might bring back the horrific practice of Necklacing if this keeps up

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Necklacing

Which is to say, burning people to death is not a new practice. It's very old (see: Witch Craze) -- and still horrific after all these centuries.

9. Wikipedia entry for your "news source", Channel 7

>Political stance

Writing on Slate in 2014, journalist William Saletan described Arutz Sheva as more or less the equivalent of the American Fox News or the Palestinian Ma'an News Agency, offering constantly updated news of interest to a right-of-center audience. "For news," he wrote, "itís totally on the ball."

What, our bullshit news agencies aren't yellow enough for your purposes?

On a side note - perusing the contents, I'm beginning to understand where the "leftist" label I'm seeing all over DU is coming from.
