Fighters from the "Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant" (ISIL) have taken over a monastery in northern Iraq, one of the country's best-known Christian landmarks, and expelled its resident monks, AFP reported Monday (July 21st).

ISIL stormed Mar Behnam, a 4th century monastery run by the Syriac Catholic church near the predominantly Christian town of Qara Qosh, on Sunday, the news agency said.

The monks pleaded to be allowed to save the monastery's relics but the fighters refused and ordered them to leave on foot with nothing but their clothes, it said.

ISIL blew up tribal homes in Mosul, Anbar: chief

Members of the "Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant" (ISIL) blew up six homes belonging to tribal chiefs in Anbar and Mosul who refused to swear allegiance to its "Islamic caliphate", an Iraqi tribal leader told Al-Shorfa.

"Terrorist elements from ISIL have blown up the homes of chiefs of al-Obaid, al-Jubur, Albu Alwan, Albu Assaf, al-Karabla and Albu Fahd tribes in Mosul and Anbar hours after they refused to swear allegiance to ISIL," said Sheikh Hameed al-Hayes, head of Anbar Salvation Council and chief of Anbar's Albu Thiyab tribe.

The chiefs of those tribes "expressly said they would support the Iraqi security forces against ISIL gangs and refused to swear allegiance to al-Baghdadi or acknowledge his caliphate", al-Hayes added.

None of the occupants were at home when the homes were blown up, he said.

That ISIL blew up these homes is evidence of the falsehood of its caliphate, he said.

we need a law,,,politicians lies to the voters,,he is immediately taken out back & shot

no pensions for any elected official,,,that will clean out the corrupt career politicians

a government that fears its citizens is a good govt

each state is sovereign inside its borders

white Christian conservatives are the enemy of govt

the only conclusion I can draw,,,the Marxist democrats want a race war

there should be a congress of red states,,1st thing to do cancel nearly all wefare

its time to ignore executive orders,,red state governors have to band together and plan resistance

Writes David Romo:

The Rockford Files was a major influence upon me as a kid.

Although Rockford had an inside friend in the police force, he really didn’t get along with the police as an institution, and as a Korean War veteran, he really didn’t get along with the U.S. military either. He also didn’t trust the FBI and other feds.

If fact, that show was unusual for its time in having a healthy cynicism about all major U.S. institutions that were dutifully worshiped by cop and detective shows in the 1970′s.

It was from watching this show that I realized that the state and all its appendages was not as it was portrayed to be.

Thank you, Jimmy Garner. Rest n Peace.

UN: more than 5,000 killed in Iraq this year

Reports says possible war crimes have been committed by all sides after Sunni rebels took over large areas of country.

July 18, 2014

The United Nations has said at least 5,576 civilians have been killed by violence in Iraq this year.

At least 11,665 have been wounded since January, when Sunni fighters from the group calling itself the Islamic State, overran the city of Fallujah in the western province of Anbar, the UN said on Friday.

Last month, fighters seized swaths of northern Iraq, including the area's largest city, Mosul. Of the 2,400 people killed in June, 1,531 were civilians, the UN said earlier this month.

The report documents what it calls "systematic and egregious violations" of international law by the group previously known as the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant.

The UN found the group had executed civilians, committed sexual violence against women and girls, carried out kidnappings and targeted assassinations of political, community, and religious leaders and killed children, among other violations.

The report also details violations committed by government forces and affiliated groups, citing "summary executions / extrajudicial killings of prisoners", which it said may constitute a war crime.

The UN noted that the "deteriorating security situation" had limited its ability to directly monitor and verify incidents.

More than 1.2 million people had been displaced since violence escalated last month, according to the report.

ISIL stones Syrian woman to death: Observatory

As originally posted on: Al-Shorfa

Members of the "Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant" (ISIL) in the northern Syrian province of al-Raqa have accused a woman of adultery and stoned her to death, AFP reported Friday (July 18th).

The stoning was carried out in Tabqa, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

Abu Ibrahim, an activist in the province, confirmed the report, and said the stoning took place in a public square in the town's market area on Thursday evening.

Another activist in al-Raqa, Hadi Salameh, said the woman was reportedly in her thirties, but that few details were known about her except that she was killed after sentencing by an ISIL religious court.

Salameh, who went by a pseudonym for security reasons, said the death must have been very painful.

"The woman's family did not know the sentence was going to be carried out at this time," he said.

'Islamic State' Launches Beheadings, Gov't Projects

As originally posted on: CBN News
July 18, 2014

Islamists from the terrorist group now known as the Islamic State, or IS, are taking new steps in their attempt to turn huge swaths of Iraq and Syria into a caliphate.

During the past month, the group has consolidated its hold over a 435-mile-stretch of territory from Syria into Iraq, seizing money from Iraqi banks estimated in the tens of millions of dollars and capturing almost all the major oil and gas fields of eastern Syria.

In some areas they're trying to act like a traditional government by repairing roads, policing traffic, and running courts. They've even set up an export system for the crude oil they've stolen.

The Islamic group has also been targeting anyone who doesn't follow their harsh brand of Sunni Islam. They've been seizing the homes of Christian and Shiite families who fled Mosul and turning some of them over to Sunni families.

In the city of Raqqa, the group's main stronghold in Syria, they've unleashed Islamic Shariah law, killing perceived offenders and cutting off the hands of thieves in public.

They have even killed violators of Shariah in the main square, including by beheading, and have hung the bodies of some people on crosses.

In Raqqa and other parts of Syria, the group also takes a cut of all humanitarian aid and commerce that passes through.

"Any trade outside the framework of the Islamic State is forbidden. Buying, selling, everything must be through the State," said one opposition activist in Raqqa, who asked not to be identified out of fear for his safety.

The leader of the IS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, appears to recognize that over the long term, his fighters are not governors. Last month al-Baghdadi appealed to Muslims around the world with practical skills -- scholars, judges, doctors, engineers, and administrators -- to come help him build a new state.

Iraqis and Syrians make up most of the group, but it also includes Arab fighters from surrounding countries as well as from non-Arab regions like the Caucasus.

Since it's not a grassroots movement, its sway over local populations is ultimately based on violence.

Religious minorities facing oppression in ISIS-controlled areas in Iraq: sources

Turkmen, Yazidis, Shabaks and Christians facing murder, kidnapping and theft by militants, say researchers

by Dalshad Abdullah

As originally posted: Asharq Al-Awsat
July 17, 2014

Erbil, Asharq Al-Awsat—Religious minorities in Iraqi territory controlled by extremist Islamist militants are facing increasing persecution, sources with knowledge of the situation told Asharq Al-Awsat.

Khedr Doumli, a Yezidi researcher and expert on minority affairs in the region, told Asharq Al-Awsat on Wednesday that residents of Mosul have faced a number of difficulties since the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) took control.

The Al-Qaeda-inspired ISIS launched a surprise attack on Mosul on June 10, driving government forces out of the city, and has since overrun much territory in northern and western Iraq alongside a wider rebellion against Iraq’s central government.

Doumli said the descruction included the loss of life and funds, the destruction of “nine ancient shrines, seminaries, churches and archaeological sites,” the payment of ransoms “that have reached around 2 million dollars,” mass emigration and attacks on minority areas including “plundering funds and property in more than 11 Shabaki villages.”

The Shabak people are an ethno-religious group who live mainly in villages in the Sinjar district in Nineveh province in northern Iraq.

“More than 45 people have gone missing in Shabaki villages in eastern Mosul. Over 30 Shabakis have been killed during the security collapse in the city. Two days ago, 10 others who had been kidnapped were killed,” Doumli said.

Ghazwan Hamid, a Shabaki member of the Nineveh provincial government, told Asharq Al-Awsat that Shabakis and other minorities around Mosul were the victims of what he called “genocidal campaigns” against them.

Hamid said ISIS had taken control of 11 Shabaki villages when Iraqi troops pulled out.

“They [ISIS] have taken the lives of a large number of Shabakis, destroyed and plundered their property, and even confiscated their cattle, slaughtered them and distributed them to the people,” he said.

Hamid accused ISIS of kidnapping Shabakis in an attempt to gain leverage in talks with Baghdad, saying the organization was trying to negotiate a deal in which it would “set free kidnapped Shabak people in return for some militants held in [government] prisons.”

Shi’ite Turkmen and Yazidis had also been the target of attacks.

Doumli said: “A total of 13 Yezidis have been killed, and more than 38 others were kidnapped, but 24 of them were set free after the payment of ransom.”

He added: “A total of 51 Shi’ite Turkmen have gone missing from the two villages of Qubba and Shrikhan, in northern Mosul. Their sanctuaries and mosques have been razed to the ground.”

The plight of Christians in the region was also becoming increasingly dire, according to sources.

“Their losses included the kidnapping of two nuns and three orphans who were lately released, partial demolition of three churches and two houses of Chaldean and Syriac archdioceses, deportation and the displacement of thousands of Christians from the city of Mosul, and continual emigration abroad,” Doumli said.

Ghazwan Eliyas, head of the Chaldean Cultural Society in Ninevah’s Al-Hamdaniya District, said: “All churches, libraries, and Christian places have been targeted by ISIS. There are no longer Christians in Mosul.”

He also said that ISIS “has dismissed hundreds of Christians from their jobs” in the province’s healthcare system, as well as “[removing] the cross and bell from all Mosul churches and raising the banners of [ISIS] on them instead,” and that they had prevented food rations being delivered to Christians.

The "Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant" (ISIL) has burnt thousands of books in Mosul under the pretext they promote atheism, the Ninawa tribal council said Thursday (July 17th).

ISIL stormed a number of public and private libraries in the city's al-Ourouba Square.

"ISIL gangs have burnt more than 6,000 religious, historical, scientific and cultural books, as well as old philosophical and social manuscripts that are considered cultural heritage of the people of Mosul," Ninawa tribal council deputy head Ibrahim al-Hassan told Al-Shorfa.

The group "spilled fuel on the books and burnt them under the pretext they call for atheism", al-Hassan said.

The move sparked large-scale public outrage, with city residents hiding the remaining books in their homes to safeguard them, he said.
