Ah, the sweet irony of it all: the people who are so happy to slice up the bodies of others have been afflicted with fleshly ailments in their turn.
The self-declared Islamic State capital is currently in the throes of an epidemic and a number of members of the Islamic State have reportedly been infected.
Efforts are reportedly being made to prevent the further spread of the Leishmaniasis skin disease, which is highly virulent, in the IS stronghold.
The disease is unfortunately impartial in its choice of targets. Those who don’t support ISIS in Raqaa are equally likely to fall victim. But their lives are hardly a peek into Paradise under the loving hands of their ‘liberators’:
These crucifixions began in March 2014… ISIS charged a shepherd with murder and theft. He was shot in the head, and his corpse was tied to a wooden cross in the main square… ISIS does not limit this carnage to adults. Citing a February report from the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child, Reuters indicated that “Islamic State militants are selling abducted Iraqi children at markets as sex slaves, and killing other youth, including by crucifixion or burying them alive.”
The forces of ISIS seem to resemble Nazi occupiers in many ways.
Though not every way. The Nazis at least preferred girlfriends with only two legs.
