HORROR In Iraqi Desert As Mass Graves Reveal ISIS Slaughter

If there was any doubt of the pure, depraved evil facing the world with the name of Islamic State, it can be erased.  Following the liberation of Sinjar in Northwest Iraq by American and British air strikes last week, Kurdish forces found two mass graves containing the dead people ISIS considered not worthy to live: largely women beyond the age of 40, too old to be sex slaves.  From Sky News in Great Britain via the UK Telegraph:

In the desert dust of Sinjar, in north west Iraq, a walking stick lies on the ground.

Strewn casually alongside it are a couple of pairs of scissors, some household keys and a shoe. Bank notes flutter in the dirt.

But, if you look a little closer, the scene becomes a horror show. Clumps of hair and fragments of bone poke grotesquely out of the ditch. It is estimated that almost 80 women are buried in this mass grave, aged between 40 and 80-years-old. The bodies are of Yazidi women, murdered by Islamic State butchers….

They discovered two graves. The first – containing the corpses of older women – was found west of the city’s centre, near the Sinjar Technical Institute. The second was ten miles west, and is believed to contain men, women and children. It is rigged with explosives and deliberately difficult to access.

The Kurdish government team will analyse the bodies in an attempt to uncover the grim story of what happened here.

But let’s be frank: it is not difficult to guess.

Over the past year, Islamic State forces have kidnapped thousands of young Yazidi women to use as sex slaves. Now we know what happened to those not deemed ‘attractive enough’ for them.

Yes, people of the civilized world, we have seen this before.  Many times, truth be told.  The most recent incidents were not so long ago.  There are people still living who remember them.  It was the excuse used to set up the United Nations.  One particularly brutal regime was known for wholesale murdering “undesirables.”  14 million of them, in fact.  The same has happened in northwestern Iraq.  Yazidi women who were too old to be desirable as a sex slave were systematically eliminated.

According to the survivors, these older women were taken behind the technical institute in the Solagh area, east of Sinjar. After a pause, gunfire was heard.

The atrocities toward women by ISIS continue to mount.

  • We know that decent health care is denied women who are supposed to be producing the next generations of ISIS fighters.
  • Caesarian sections have been outlawed as being un-Islamic.
  • Sexually transmitted disease is running rampant as women are passed between gangs raping them.
  • An actual slave market was set up with the women connected to high ranking members of ISIS running it and determining a woman’s value.
  • High profile hostages, like Kayla Mueller, are taken as wives and brutally abused before the mercy of death.

And now we find out that the young women who have been taken as sex slaves lost their mothers, aunts, sisters, and more to genocide.  The women who were systematically killed due to being undesirable were the ones who would be able to comfort the wounded, nurse the poor girls when they are sick and laboring with child, and pass on the wisdom of motherhood and age.

This is what the men of ISIS think of women.

The Telegraph outright says that to understand the nature of the enemy being fought in France’s Francois Hollande’s war, it must be understood what they do as a matter of course.  The men of ISIS have no use for the fairer sex other than as slaves to their lust and desire.

Reports are that a third mass grave with Yazidi women was found.  More are expected to be unearthed.  At this writing, the count of those grandmothers, mothers, aunts and sisters slaughtered by ISIS and dumped in the ground together is 190.  God help us if we cannot stop these people.
