ISIS is an enemy to all Muslims: the evil must be eliminated and destroyed

ISIS is the black robed self proclaimed Islamic state with evil ambitions to destroy, kill, suppress women, create horror and promulgate terror

RT (Russian-American) News reports:

In their diabolic quest to indiscriminately decimate any symbols not to their liking, ISIS blew up the tomb of Jonas.

The shrine of Jonas – revered by Christians
 and Muslims alike – has been turned “to dust” near Iraq’s Mosul. 

Footage of the event was posted online, and witnesses said it took ISIS militants just an hour to stuff the mosque with explosives.

“ISIS militants have destroyed the Prophet Younis (Jonah) shrine east of Mosul city after they seized control of the mosque completely,” an anonymous security source told the Iraq-based al-Sumaria News.

The extremist group ISIS changed its name from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS/ISIL) to just the Islamic State (IS), after formally declaring a new caliphate in Syria and Iraq at the end of June.

Muslims know the tomb as the shrine of Younis, whereas Christians refer to it as the tomb of Jonas.

Jonas is renowned for having been swallowed by a fish or a whale in the Bible’s Old Testament, with a similar story being present in the Koran. The site upon which the mosque had been built dated back to the eighth century BC.

The official said it took the Sunni extremists an hour to rig the shrine with explosives. After evacuating people from the area, they blew it up in front of a large crowd.

Though several religious sites have been destroyed in recent days – with the official citing the Yahya Ibn al-Qassem, Aoun al-Din, and Prophet Daniel shrines as most important – “the worst destruction was of Nabi Yunus, which has been turned to dust.”

Thirty shrines and 15 hussainias and mosques in the Mosul area have been destroyed by IS (Islamic State) in recent months.

As a mainewriter comment and observation, I simply can't imagine the international calls for retribution against the USA if our nation was, in any way, involved in desecration of religious shrines of any denomination, especially those with a Judeo-Christian heritage.

Meanwhile, the USA executed an attempted rescue of the now martyr and executed journalist James Foley, without facing even one challenge about the invasion into Syria, resulting from the raid. Although ISIS must have somehow moved Foley, foiling the rescue, the fact of the matter is, there was no retaliation against any attack on ISIS as a result of the US invasion of Syrian air space. 

Is it possible the ISIS terrorists were as angry at Syria as the US, when the executioner made sickening bravado about his deadly mortal act?

Evidently, ISIS is too evil for even the most nefarious perpetrators of murder and terrorism in Syria, like President al-Assad.

It's only a matter of time before Muslims destroy ISIS. Nevertheless, the horrific terror ISIS is generating while the group is in the path of ultimate annihilation is beyond anything the world has ever seen, equal or exceeding the genocide of the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia and Nazism in Germany.  

All evil groups must be destroyed.

Tragically, the James Foley execution has focused our nation on the ISIS evil and the brutality that will be required to eliminate those who are spreading their incendiary hatred.
