Another horrific story that yet again evidences the evils of Islam. Muslim terrorists took 8 people, including an infant, covered them in tar and burned them to death. According to one report:
Islamic State (IS) militants burned to death eight civilians, including one infant, after trying to flee the areas held by the extremist group in southwest Kirkuk.
According to a security source, who spoke to Al Sumaria News on condition of anonymity, the IS insurgents arrested the eight civilians after trying to escape the IS-held areas of Hawija, heading towards the region of al-Alam in the Salahaddin province.
The source explained that the victims were then caged and tar was poured on them before setting them on fire, IraqiNews reported.
The IS militants captured areas in southwestern Kirkuk back in 2014, when the extremist group first emerged in Iraq and declared its self-proclaimed “caliphate.” Since then the jihadists have executed hundreds of civilians and Iraqi security personnel.
Local tribal leaders and officials from Kirkuk province have repeatedly pressured the Iraqi government to proceed with liberating the town of Hawija, located 45 kilometers west of Kirkuk, the groups main stronghold in the province.
Meanwhile… LABOUR Baroness Says “Paranoid” Government Must Make Muslims Feel Welcome
BRITISH Muslims feel like they must take a daily “loyalty test”, Baroness Warsi, the former Conservative Cabinet minister, has said.
The lawyer and peer, who was previously a minister in the Foreign Office and minister of state for faith and communities in the Coalition Government, said that despite some signs of progress, “I still feel like every day I’m having to face a loyalty test.”
Baroness Warsi was speaking at the Greenbelt festival in Northamptonshire, where she was promoting her new book The Enemy Within: A Tale of Muslim Britain.
The message she wanted to tell the crowd of hundreds who had gathered to hear her speak on Friday evening was that British Muslims were just like them: young and old, straight and gay, they came in all shapes and sizes
“They shop at Tesco, Sainsbury’s, and Asda,” she said. “The posh ones even go to Waitrose.”
But despite the presence of young, well-integrated Muslims in popular culture, such as the popstar Zayn Malik or the Great British Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain, Muslims were still “sick to death of being counted out” of mainstream society.
The Government’s approach amounted to “the paranoid state”, she said, noting how anti-terrorism policy focused solely on proscribing ideology and ignored the other factors research showed pushed people into extremism.
Less than a tenth of one per cent of the three million Muslims living in the UK had anything to do with jihadism, yet the Government’s engagement with this diverse community was seen solely through the prism of counter-terrorism, she lamented.
“There are far more Muslim doctors in the NHS than there are Muslim terrorists,” she said. “We are more likely to be life-savers rather than life-takers. This policy of disengagement is fundamentally wrong.”
In 2014, Baroness Warsi resigned from the Government saying that she could no longer support official policy on the escalating violence between Israel and Gaza (News, 8 August 2014). She described the Government’s stance as “morally indefensible” and not in Britain’s national interest nor consistent with international justice.
In her Greenbelt talk, she explained how the name of her book had come about one year earlier when Lee Rigby had been murdered in Woolwich by Islamist terrorists.
One “right-wing journalist” at The Spectator had questioned her place on the national security council discussing counter-terrorism proposals after the attack, describing her as “the enemy at the table”.
“That insult was the worst. It said that we don’t trust you,” she recalled. “You don’t belong. But the best way to deal with an insult that really hurts you is to own it — this book is my way of fielding that insult.”…
