ISIS Kidnaps Catholics in Syria, Threatens to Decapitate Adults and Burn Their Children Alive in Cages

That horrendous headline is incomprehensible to peace loving people around the world. The story was then updated.

On Mar. 4, Rev. Freund provided an update: “ISIS released at least 19 Christians on Sunday [Mar. 1] who were among the more than 220 people the militants took captive in northeastern Syria last week, activists and a local leader said.

The 19 released? They had to pay Jizya to the religion of peace.

According to an Associated Press report, “all those [19 people] released were around 50 years of age or older, which suggests age might have been a factor. The Assyrian Human Rights Network, meanwhile, said the captives had been ordered released by a Shariah court after paying an unspecified amount of money levied as a tax on non-Muslims.”

Dear Leader doesn’t like it when we call these people radical Islamic terrorists. He doesn’t accept the premise that they can hijack the religion of peace to use as their call to duty. So lets not call them radical. Lets just call it what it is. Followers of Islam practicing their beliefs rooted in the Quran. Following the word of their God, Allah, as delivered by Mohammed. Just everyday people doing what their religion tells them to do.

When you meet your enemies who are polytheists, invite them to three courses of action. If they respond to any one of these, you also accept it and withhold yourself from doing them any harm. Invite them to [accept] Islam; if they respond to you, accept it from them and desist from fighting against them. … If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the jizya. If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah’s help and fight them.

Happy now Mr. President? Perhaps it is you that cherry picks what part of Islam to adhere to. Perhaps these men of faith simply decide to adhere to Islam in its entirety, not just the ‘peaceful’ parts as you espouse?
