Internet flooded with images and videos of executions from Sunni militants aiming to topple Iraqi government; At least five die in Kenya attack just days after Al Qaeda-inspired group Al Shabaab kill 60 in twin massacres; Islamist militants Boko Haram feared to have snatched 90 villagers in Nigeria after kidnapping 300 Christian girls.

Attacks between Christian and Islamic militia in Central African Republic ‘risk creating conditions for genocide’; Sudanese woman freed from death row for marrying a Christian is re-arrested for not using her Muslim name

From a beheading in Iraq to the hard-line repression of religious freedoms in Sudan, a string of extremist acts in recent weeks have raised the worrying spectre of a new era of Islamic fundamentalism spreading across the world.

Over the last month, the world’s media has been awash with gruesome images of barbarism – pulled into sharp focus in recent days with the barrage of horrific videos and hate-filled messages pouring onto the internet from Sunni militants in Iraq.

But it is far from restricted to that country alone. In just the last few days:

Footage has emerged showing armed militant children as young as eight watching as an Iraqi prisoner is executed by ISIS, while another shows a captured Iraqi police officer being beheaded;
At least five people have died in an attack on Kenya’s coast just days after Al Qaeda-inspired terror group Al Shabaab kills 60 in twin massacres;

Islamist militants Boko Haram are feared to have snatched 90 villagers in the same area of Nigeria where they seized nearly 300 Christian schoolgirls two months ago;
A human rights group has warned that revenge attacks between Christian and Islamic militia in the Central African Republic risk creating conditions for a genocide reminiscent of Bosnia in the 1990s.

Just last night, an explosion in a Nigerian shopping mall killed at least 21 people and injured 17 more as the nation prepared to watch its football team play Argentina in the World Cup
Also yesterday, a suicide bomber killed himself and wounded several security officers at a hotel in Raouche in Beirut, close to the Saudi Arabian embassy

Ben Swann Reality Check: What The Media Isn’t Telling You About Syria

Posted in 2013 with tags , , , on September 4, 2013 by MARIE EMMANUELLE QUILICHINI

Assad was far from an ideal leader – but unlike many polities of the Middle East, his government was secular and Syria was a regional haven for religious freedom.

Over the past two years, the FSA‘s uprising has been overwhelmed by a

group called the al Nusra Front, which is nothing less than a band of international
terrorists, formerly located in Iraq and actually self-described as al Qaeda.

Should they win this conflict, their stated plan is to decapitate all non-Muslims and all others, considered “traitors” to their “nation”, which they envision as including Iraq.

It is this latter group, which has received millions and millions in US military aid(although, allegedly no armaments). One wonders, if the US were to assist *anyone*  in this conflict – why them?

As a video Ben rolls in of a small child of the al Nusra Front singing bloodthirsty lyrics to a crowd of his approving elders, it becomes abundantly clear that the US has unquestionably been on the wrong side of this conflict.

Two Iraqi commentators come to blows in an all-out brawl during a heated discussion about Saddam Hussein.
