Report: Gruesome Eyewitness Accounts Of “Ethnic Cleansing On A Historic Scale” And Massacres In Iraq
Ethnic cleansing on a historic scale. Where would Islam be without it? …
Hadith, Sahih Muslim 1:33a, “The Messenger of Allah [Mohammed] said: ‘I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Mohammad is the messenger of Allah, and they establish [Islamic] prayer …”
Islamic Scholar Sayyid Abul Ala Maududi: “Islam wishes to destroy all States and Governments anywhere on the face of the earth which are opposed to the ideology and programme of Islam regardless of the country or the Nation that rules it. Islam requires the earth – not just a portion – but the whole planet.”
By Barbara Boland, CNS News – “Amnesty International released a 26-page report ‘that provides harrowing new evidence’ of the Islamic State’s ‘ethnic cleansing on a historic scale,’ the ‘systematic targeting of ethnic and religious minorities,’ along with dozens of eyewitness accounts of gruesome mass executions within Iraq.
Survivors recount horrific massacres of men and boys by Islamic State fighters in northern Iraq and the Sinjar region. Women and children are captured, enslaved, raped or sold into sexual slavery. Thousands, feared to have been abducted, have not been heard from again. Over 830,000 people have been driven from their homes in fear of their lives.
‘The Islamic State is carrying out despicable crimes and has transformed rural areas of Sinjar into blood-soaked killing fields in its brutal campaign to obliterate all trace of non- Arabs and non-Sunni Muslims,’ Donatella Rovera, Senior Adviser to Amnesty International said Tuesday.
The report states that minorities that have lived together in the Ninevah province for centuries, like the Assyrian Christians, Turkmen Shi’a, Shabak Shi’a, Yezidis, Kakai and Sabean Mandaeans, have been threatened with death if they do not convert to Islam. When they refuse to convert, there have been mass executions of men and boys, while women and girls have been abducted. There are reports that they have been sold into sexual slavery or forced into marriage.
Here is the account of eyewitness Hawwas Hashem, who had hidden himself nearby Qiniyeh in June:
“After hours of clashes with the IS militants who were attacking our village we were overpowered and fled toward the mountain. Many of us stopped in Qiniyeh; there had been no clashes there and we thought we would be safe. There were many families, men, women and children. Hundreds all together. The IS men left and after a while they came back with several vehicles. Four of the vehicles surrounded the house where I was with my family.
“I ran away and hid in a nearby hill. From there I could see what was happening. It was early afternoon – broad daylight. They brought all the people out of the houses and divided the men from the women and children. They put the women and children in vehicles and drove away and marched the men and some young boys to the wadi nearby. They made them kneel or crouch along the edge of the wadi, and shot them in the back. I counted about 67 who were killed and some others survived and ran away after the IS militants left. Then I ran away from the hill to Mount Sinjar.”
Amnesty Inernational reports that witnesses indicate up to 80-85 men and boys ‘were shot dead on the edge of the village of Qiniyeh [and] many more are reported to have been killed in smaller groups further away from the village…’

Flashback: Pure Evil: ISIS Caliphate Releases Video Of Mass Killings, Supporters Online Cheer Massacres As ‘Most Beautiful’ – “In what should be a time of happiness when Muslims mark the end of Ramadan, Islamist militants in Iraq celebrated Eid by releasing a video showing scenes of them carrying out genocide. The slickly produced footage shows prisoners being rounded up and summarily executed, suicide bombers boasting before blowing up buildings and Iraqis being gunned down in drive-by shootings. In one of the most shocking passages, terrified prisoners are piled into the back of trucks, where they hold each other and huddle in fear before driven off to their deaths.” Read more.
