Genocide in Iraq

Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz must watch this video. And so should you.

Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz signed a letter that calls Israel’s actions to remove the Hamas threat emanating from Gaza “genocide.” Their anti-Semitism drives them to corrupt the true meaning of the word. They – along with the rest of the hypocritical Western world – ignore the staggering tragedy that is happening right now in Nigeria, Syria, Darfur, the Congo and Iraq. They should watch this video below of an Iraqi member of parliament who is Yazidi breaking down, trying to galvanize her government to confront the very real genocide that is happening to her people. 30,000 Iraqis who are members of a persecuted religious minority known as Yazidi are trapped on a mountain, besieged by Islamic State (ISIS) fighters. And they are dying.

WHERE IS HUMAN RIGHTS MEDIA NOW????

How the genocide in Iraq, Syria, and other regions in the world is not spoken about...the lady in the video is pleading in name of HUMANITY...why does not the U.N hold emergency sessions for the suffering of common man in arab lands where DISGUSTINGLY SLAVERY is still in practice...perhaps the U.N should forget about ISRAELI WAR CRIMES (WHICH DONT EXIST) and focus on REAL SUFFERING....SHAME ON UNITED NATIONS...WAKE UP AND GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER BEFORE THE GOD OF ISRAEL WILL COMES AND TEAR YOU IN PIECES AND THERE WILL BE NONE TO DELIVER.....ZION IS FOREVER

Heart wrenching

How anyone could watch and listen to that video could not empathize with her is beyond me.
In 2014 those miserable Arabs still have SLAVES AND SLAVE MARKETS?
How can anyone not understand that a real genocide/holocaust is happening again?
My heart goes out to the Yazidi people as do my prayers for their safety.
I salute President Obama for sending humanitarian assistance and for bombing the godless ISIS.

WE CANNOT BE SILENT.....AGAIN!

If there was Facebook and YouTube 65 years ago....it would look something like this!!!

"In the name of humanity, save us, save us".



We cannot be silent, the battle in Israel is a battle for the right to exsist for all the Religions of the world.

OUR WAR is YOUR WAR!!!!

Faces of Stone

It is no wonder the woman broke down. First, the moderator tried to stop her speech using a technicality. Second, there was no reaction to what she was saying; no murmmers of agreement or even of dissent; she might as well have been speaking to an empty room. It is easly to imagine her dispair as she realizes that no help will come from the stoney faces surrounding her.

A new Holocaust

The world ignores what Muslims do to those who do not believe EXACTLY how they believe. In Africa, terrorist groups kidnap and kill innocent people for the sake of killing them. Yet, the world focuses on the legitimate war between the terror group Hamas and Israel.
The reason is clear: Jew hate is alive and very well in the 21st century.
While ISIS beheads children and commits true genocide on people who are killed for not believing in the satanic god that they, ISIS, follows.
They do not follow the G-d of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the G-d that Islam claims to follow. No true G-d could be happy with what ISIS is doing. They MUST be destroyed where they are because they will not be happy with Iraq and Syria; they want the entire world to think as they do.
ISIS, Hamas, and Hesbolah, are the unholy trinity of evil such as the world has seen time after time in previous centuries.
European countries, in an attempt to show that they are not racist, has opened the door to countless Arabs who will, when the time is right, will join with groups above and attempt to destroy Western thought and ALL religions other than the one they...what? Believe in? What kind of a deity would be happy with the kind of wholesale genocide that is happening at this very moment.
I can think of only one god that they must believe in: Moloch!

The "media" is crying over the children of Gaza being psychologically damaged by the rockets from Israel. WHAT ABOUT THE ISRAELI CHILDREN AND ADULTS? Time after time the sirens blare out, forcing everyone to head for shelter in 15 seconds. But the world cares not for us, they only care about the terrorists whom they call "militants."
