Islamic militants killed 80 members of Iraq's Yazidi minority in a northern village, sources told Fox News on Friday.

The latest killings came just a day after President Obama said U.S. air strikes and humanitarian aid drops on Sinjar mountain, where thousands of Yazidi have been stranded in an Islamic State siege had been ended.

Yes, but you won’t hear/read that in the MSM.

Actually the mission won’t be accomplished so long as one muslim exists on Earth.

It is always interesting how Obama gives advance notice of air strikes and then advance notice that we are stopping.

It is a lot like the xylophone chimes at intermission, everyone has time to get to their seats.

Until they run through the corridors of the New York Times slashing off hands and beheading ‘journalists’ the idiots in the media will not think it serious. Maybe not even then.

Yes. Zoroastrian and devil worshippers.

Idea is that God is good and there’s no need to fear God.

But the Devil on the other hand is a bad guy who needs to be appeased.

Check out this from a 50’s Adventure magazine.

At page 8 it starts with the author’s Experience with the Yezidis.

Re #15: I feel frisky tonight. Can anyone photoshop this photo of Jen Pissant’s title to: “State Dept. Spokesthing Humped”?

Now that would be a video I’d like to see.

However, somebody put duct tape over his mouth. She is one of the stupidests spokesthings I’ve ever heard since the 5 O’Clock Follies at the Pentagon.

"The slaughter of as many as 500,000 Christians in South Sudan since 2011 may not have received the attention it deserved. However, now the religious cleansing of Christians in Iraq resulting from Islamic jihadists’ conquest of lands, Christians had called home since the first centuries A.D. cannot be ignored."

Lets see, who was our president from 2011 to now?

Isn't he wonderful! Lord Obama gives us free abortions and birth control. Then, he is letting ISIS, HAMAS, and other Islamic hate groups kill all those evil/judge mental Christians, Jews and Yazidis.

Obama speaking in private, “Well, you know my background...so let's be real. "Kill All the Christians and Jews" is not a nursery rhyme. it’s the intent of Islam. It's what I learned as a boy.”

Yazidis are Zoroastrian

Their own name for themselves is Daasin (plural Dawaaseen), which is taken from the name of an old Nestorian - the Ancient Church of the East - diocese, for many of their beliefs are derived from Christianity. They revere both the Bible and the Koran, but much of their own tradition is oral. Due in part to its secrecy, there have been misunderstandings that the complex Yazidi faith is linked to Zoroastrianism with a light/dark duality and even sun worship. Recent scholarship, however, has shown that although their shrines are often decorated with the sun and that graves point east towards the sunrise, they share many elements with Christianity and Islam.

Thanks for that info—I wasn’t aware of the Christianity connection.

I was also aware that the late Freddy Mercury’s family was Zoroastrian.

Both of these religions were unknown to me.

Apparently, you cannot convert to this religion, you have to be born into it.

Some weird stuff, no?
