I’m glad that Ferguson is getting attention, seriously I am, but I haven’t seen ONE post about what is happening over seas. Not even one post about the pictures above. Children are being beheaded and dragged into the streets where they are then shot because their families are Christian. Women are being raped and murdered. Men are being murdered. PEOPLE are dying. It’s a Christian Holocaust. And I haven’t seen anything on Tumblr.
Why aren’t any of you furious about this?! Where’s the “social justice?” ISIS is murdering people who don’t convert to Islam (yes, I know they’re extremists and not all Muslims are like that. Save yourself the rant) but I really want to know why this hasn’t been given the attention it deserves.
Seriously, guys. This is really scary, and we need to raise attention for these people. They so desperately need our prayers and support.
This happening to christian KURDS and yezidis
There has also been over 100 girls under the age of 15 that have been raped by ISIS soldiers and have been forced into committing suicide. The Kurdish Christians and Yezedis that are on the run are begging for a quick death. The ISIS leader has threatened to ‘drown our enemies in their own blood’ which includes non-muslim Kurds, Americans and other countries that have offered to help stop this genocide. What the Kurds are going through is completely tragic, and they’ve already been through so much. So many Kurdish peshmerga have been slaughtered, this is going to turn out to be a total massacre….
My people :(
ISIS are not only targeting Christians (although most of the western coverage of this issue that I have seen has made it seem that way, particularly on social media.)
ISIS are esentislly targeting anyone who isn’t a SUNNI Muslim (that’s an important distinction.) Shia Muslims (from what I have read) are being targeted the most and are at the most risk. Yazidis are not Christian, they are a religious and ethnic minority and have been cut off from water and food supplies, and are essentially at risk of being massacred if they try to leave the mountain they are currently trapped on. Christians and Kurds are also being killed.
I know it’s easy for us as westerners to focus on those who share similarities with us (western, Christian, white etc, this also happened with MH17), but please remember that Chrisitans are not the only group being targeted by ISIS. What is happening in Iraq and northern Syria is being likened to an ethnic cleanse. (Not just of Christians.)
Also, in terms of the Nazarene symbol, the specific targeting of Christians etc. I am yet to find an official news source to corroborate this. (I have searched.)
