I stand with the Coptic Christian community and I encourage them to fight to survive the horror of ISIS which (if I believed in Satan) I’d call Satan incarnate. 

Don’t take the words “turn the other cheek” too seriously. Fight for your community however you need too.  Every human life is sacred but some are more precious than others. (Hint: if you shoot Christians just because they aren’t Muslims then you fall squarely into the NON-precious category and I’d say you are fair game.)

Remember Copts, you have the right to your beliefs so long as they don’t harm others. Let no one take them from you; especially those who embody evil. They hate you and Jesus might tell you not to hate them back. But, it’s okay NOT TO DIE at the hands of zealots. Remember, the proper translation of the commandment is “thou shalt not murder” NOT “thou shalt not kill”. If you are going to die, die defending your humanity. Don’t Die of complacency.

As one of the world’s small remaining community of Jews, I stand with you. You are not alone.

This rather reminds me of the old days when the Taliban was destroying the priceless, irreplaceable artifacts of Buddhist culture. This time, for about the same reason, ISIS is hard at work destroying the precious history of Assyrian culture. Once again, religious extremism is working hard to destroy everything that doesn’t happen to be part of their particular ideology. Violent dogma at work. So…. let’s have a look:

Needless to say, you don’t go out and buy some new ancient Iraqi artifacts. So, like the Taliban before it, ISIS is killing not just humans but history.

What a pity.
