ISIS burn 12 people alive including a family of four after forcing them into metal cages and dousing them with oil when they tried to flee in Iraq

Extremists forced the civilians into cages and doused them with oil before setting them alight in the city of Hawija in Kirkuk Province, northern Iraq.

The victims were accused of trying to escape to nearby Kirkuk city, which is under government control.

    As close to unadulterated evil as we will ever see in our lifetime.

    I hope.

      Have we already forgotten about the 19th Amendment?

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        Without the 19th amendment ISIS would not exist.

          In fairness, Mo and his murderous lot did just fine at torturing and killing infidels (and ensuring that no woman had any power in society). All without a 19th Amendment.

    These moderate muslims were just auditioning for spots in Trudeau’s cabinet

  • BillyHW

    Why don’t they listen to Caliph Francis who teaches that a true reading of the Koran is opposed to all forms of violence?

    The barbarism gives it that Muhamad touch so you know it’s the true islam.

    I don’t listen to the 0.003% of the World’s muslims that are in canada. It’s unfair to judge the 99.997% outside canada just because we have a few follower that don’t want to kill me right now.
    Isn’t it Justin that pushes the Global Warming crisis as fact because 93% of the scientists say it’s real. So why is that when 98% of the muslims use the same jew-hating homophobic quran he claims that they have it all wrong because what he sees by the 70% of our 0.003% that claim to be moderates while 30% of our 1,000,000 said they condone jihad terrorist to defend islam when insulted.

    Is the Guardian and the BBC going to go on a three-day rant about how ISIS is ignoring civilian casualties?
    Oh that’s right, it’s only America (and sometimes Israel) that is held to that standard.

      The convenient thing about that is that according to the rules of war ISIS are civilians. They are not the uniform wearing members of the armed forces of a recognized state. Therefore they are illegal enemy combatants and have no Geneva Convention rights and can be executed when they are captured. By the established rules of war that is perfectly legit.

      • Watchman

        Unfortunately it was completely legit until around the 1950s when the status of an ‘unlawful combatant’ was gradually changed from an outlaw that could be summarily executed to something less clear cut. I believe this was a result of pressure in the United Nations to recognise ‘national liberation wars’ which were often just attempts at Communist takeovers supported by the USSR, China and Cuba. Nowadays they seem to demand extensive civilian trials instead of a short military trial and execution of unlawful combatants. The capture of undoubtably unlawful combatant during the invasion of Iraq post 2003 and the inability to execute them shows the current state of international law and laws of armed conflict.

        Have a look at the International Red Cross’s position on this at

        What ISIS did would be a war crime if ISIS was a recognised country with a structured military force. As it is the perpetrators might have to be tried in an international court as if this was a simple murder.

        As a side note this stupid linked Red Cross position claims:

        However, it cannot be denied that respect for human dignity is an eminently universal concept. The foundations of international humanitarian law, or at least their equivalents, are thus found in the major cultural systems on our planet: the right to life, the right to physical integrity, the prohibition of slavery and the right to fair legal treatment.

        Universal, except in islam, where each of these right are not cherished and enforced in law but specifically repudiated by the religion/government of islam.

    This reminds me of Charles Manson and his gang carving swastikas on their foreheads during their trial – as their evil was brought to a close, they had to desperately do something to backwardly justify their actions, to reaffirm that they had been right in their evil. And, I suppose, to stay relevant. These “people” enjoy inflicting pain on others, clearly, but I think that there’s more to it than that: as ISIS crumbles around them, they are also desperately seeking to reaffirm and cling to their evil worldview, and the actions that it has inspired. To justify what is (perhaps even to them, at some level) totally unjustifiable and abhorrent.
