Meanwhile back in Iraq the Spanish Inquisition has been rebranded into ISIS or IS. The apparently well funded radical Islamist who are in the process of taking over Iraq have stranded a minority sect up in the mountains – giving the people stuck in the mountains the choice of dying from dehydration (no water) or coming down from the mountain and renouncing their religion and converting to the ISIS dumb shit religion. The also have the choice to leave the mountain and lose their heads – rather than convert.
WTH who got the brilliant idea to redo the Crusades – but this time the cast of characters is being played by Islamic males in black pajamas, with shaggy yucky beards and rifles slung over their shoulders. Now these bad guys are worthy of some drone work – purely observational.
There are 40,000 Yazidi minority sect on that mountain, many of whom are women and children. This is a very old religion with bits and pieces of the other patriarchal religions. They believe in the one male God. They are purists and many of the true believers may choose death rather than defile themselves by association with the unpure ISIS. They could go toward the Kurd territory. The Wikipedia entry is well worth reading. Mostly because this tiny group of people shows just how ignorant the Neocons and GW Bush where of the all the Iraqi people and their customs and beliefs.
Update on the Yazidis fleeing from the IS (Islamic State).
Iraqi Minorities Face Death By Militants Sword Or Perilous Mountains – http://huff.to/1AVD9Ih
Some have chosen not to flee. The claim by IS guards is that all the Yazidis need do is fly a white flag from their roof. Other reports as that the men have been captured and killed and the women taken away to be slaves. Oh how absolutely Old Testament. Well all of the male Sky God religions come crime the same source so using women as slaves – the women are considered less than human by many of these sky God cultures. (Sky God reference is from The Young Turks TV.)
And people wonder why I avoid all organized religions.

The spell checker didn’t recognize Yazidi and switched the spelling to something else.
Then there is this right wing nutjob in Africa = Boko Harem. Yes the very same ones to have kidnapped school girls – my theory is that the cult leader uses captured girls as pay-offs to recruit and retain fighting males. All about the male God and worship of that God. This religious cult has attacked another town and killed 100. These nutjob are representative of just one of the hotspots in Africa.
Kenya has some Islamic radicals doing their best to kill Christians.
Up in Europe there are there are the Ukrainians and the splinter groups. There have been major blood baths, with bodies stacked high. Some would call these bodies as photogenic props. I call this display of dead bodies grotesque monuments to stupidity.
On the home front in America there is a right wing preacher who talks directly to the one and only male God who is also talking to ISIS and Boko Harem. Now the male God of a Christian minister says God told him the following —
In his Sunday sermon at the Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Pastor John Hagee explained that it is “God’s position” that welfare recipients should get a job or expect to starve, according to Right Wing Watch.
Stating that America has an underclass of citizens dependent upon help from the government equal to the population of Spain, Hagee asserted that there is a division in America, “Those who pay double through taxes, and those who get a free ride. This is not justice, and this is not the American way.”
While admitting that there are some unfortunate Americans who need help, Hagee admonished others to get off the couch and get a job
This male God sure gets around. So many human males are claiming to talk directly to this God. I think that the world court needs to arrest this male God and put him on trial.

The question of where does ISIS get it’s funding. Was ISIS a “moderate” rebel group in Syria that was funded by the spooks from America. All those matching Toyota vehicles driven by ISIS as they invade Iraq which could be identical to the trucks in Syria. Photos of the incriminating trucks can be found at the link. Follow the money to the source.
August 8, 2014 (Tony Cartalucci – LD) – The US has pledged assistance for victims of and even possible “airstrikes” against terrorists who have surrounded and threaten to eradicate thousands of religious minorities in Iraq. However, the terrorists themselves are a product of US foreign policy in the Middle East and North Africa, and instrumental in achieving Western objectives across the region. Punitive strikes and aid to the victims of what is essentially a Western mercenary army is part of maintaining plausible deniability
The terror hordes originated from NATO territory and have inundated Syria, Iraq, and now Lebanon. The goal of this well funded, heavily armed, professionally organized mercenary force is clearly to supplant pro-Iranian political and military fronts across Tehran’s arc of influence – from Baghdad to Damascus, to Lebanon and Hezbollah along the Mediterranean. In the process, the heavily indoctrinated rank and file have committed horrific atrocities ranging from rape and torture to mass executions and sectarian genocide. While such war crimes have been taking place in Syria since 2011, it is becoming increasingly difficult to cover up similar crimes beyond Syria’s borders under narratives of “civil war” linked to the so-called “Arab Spring
