Tens of thousands of members of Iraqi religious minority groups are dying of heat and thirst on Mount Sinjar, human rights groups say, after death threats from Islamic State - formerly Isis
Tens of thousands of members of Iraqi religious minority groups driven from their homes for fear of the jihadist group Islamic State are dying of thirst and heat on a desert mountainside in the north of the country, according to the United Nations and human rights groups.
Some 40 children have already died from the heat and dehydration, the UN childrens organisation Unicef says, while upwards of 40,000 more are sheltering in the bare mountains, without food or water or access to supplies. It says 25,000 children may be stranded.
Hundreds of adults, particularly men but also women and children, are already feared to have been killed or abducted by the group, which now surrounds their hiding place.
Most of the refugees, who fled their home city of Sinjar when it was seized by Islamic State at the weekend, are members of the Yazidi community. The Yazidis are an offshoot from Zoroastrianism and the Peacock Angel at the centre of their beliefs is associated by some Sunni Muslims with Satan.
This makes them especially vulnerable to the sectarian attacks practised by Islamic State, which refers to them as devil-worshippers.

When will the UNSC meet over this little incident?
When will BBC, SkyTV, CNN, ABC, CNBC and all the others show picture after picture with dying, emaciated, dehydrated children? (They will have 25 000 to chose from so an embarrassment of abundance, one would think.)
Where are the UN peace keeping forces in Iraq? :::crickets:::
I posted this thread under the War on Terror topic, but at the moment the whole WOT is a sad joke. (And anyway, we know who the terrorosits are so the name is and has always been a misnomer.)

Our leftwing press will be happy to be complicit in genocide as long as the 'right' people are dying.
The UN, John Kerry, Bella Clintoon, Obozo and the now gang will be protesting in the streets and hash tagging to protect these innocents.

Thought provoking picture for survivalists.
Nothing from our caliphate-in-chief, nothing from the vatican, inc., no mention from pravda of washington. The silence and inaction says it all. Maybe the missionaries should branch out into arms smuggling, and help level the playing field, or find someone to finance a new crusade, because if they are expect help from western Christians, they are apparently SOL. Try Israel or Russia for help, at least they don’t seem to be as hostile towards Christians.
There’s no angle to blame this on the Joos, so there’s no story.
Obama most responsible for his failure to negotiate, or require, a sensible sized contingency force of US personnel to remain in Iraq, and for his repeated failure to attack the ISIS/Islamic State forces as they formed convoys in Syria, convoyed all over northern Iraq, and were sitting ducks on several occasions before they overran so much territory.
And Obama has also refused to send military aid to the Kurds.
She knew the girls were forced into prostitution. How inane.
Not even a hashtag.
It must be eliminated from the earth.
All those Muslim countries can’t stop ISIS but they thought they could fight Israel?
OBAMA: hey...these ISIS guys are only the jayvee team... no worries. /s
MOOSHELL: Let them eat cake.
