The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, aka ISIS, is taking "terror" to new heights. They are beheading children simply because they are Christian. I had thought about posting the picture of a Syrian father holding the lifeless body of his headless daughter for the shock value, but I have decided against it. Or how about group crucifixions of Christians? If you really want to see that morbidity, it's not hard to find in Google or Yahoo searches. This is beyond terror, it is horror.
Meanwhile, many Americans sit at home and ponder the upcoming NFL season and/or speculate on what is in store for the NBA and NHL seasons which are not much further away. Should the world stop and put an end to these monsters who claim to be fighting for Allah? Or, should we just carry on as if nothing is happening, after all, it's not happening in our backyard? How is this genocide any less horrific than Hitler's treatment of the Jews? What is it going to take to get the world to take action against ISIS? I know the USA is still recovering from many years at war in the region - but our pull-out was ill-timed and left a vacuum which was filled by radical factions of Islam.
Don't get me wrong here... most Muslims are not like ISIS. I also do not support the errors of Islam, but ISIS is not representative of a majority of Islam. While we can peacefully debate between Christianity and Islam - there is no "debating" with these radical elements. All they know is violence and hatred of anything or anyone not like themselves. The only thing which will end their horror will be their complete defeat in this game of war they have actively engaged themselves within.
I urge everyone reading this to pray and fast over these current events. If an article like this is not enough to convince you, then do a Google or Yahoo images search for "beheaded children" and if that doesn't get your attention, I don't know what will... perhaps just letting the forces of ISIS continue until they really are doing these acts in your own backyard?

Oh, and lest any have forgotten... it HAS happened in our backyard...
