BAGHDAD -- The Islamic State "behaved very nice at the beginning of the takeover of Mosul, but they start to uncover their ugly faces. They blew up three prophets' graves, which opened my eyes," said shopkeeper Omer Othman

  1. “Atheel Al-Nujaifi, the governor of Mosul, announced last week that a popular rebellion against the militants will start soon.”

    As predicted, it was just a matter of time before local Iraqi Sunnis, former Baathists and tribal leaders got fed up with ISIS and turned on them. They did the same thing to Al Queda a few years back.

    • Man-made religion is dangerous (most especially evil, idolatrous Islam) but JESUS is the Sinless Lamb of God. HE is the Way, the Truth and the Life. Authentic Christianity is about a relationship with the Sinless Lamb of God who teaches us to love one another and to be willing to even lay down our lives for one another. What do you find dangerous about the love of Jesus? Your atheistic position is the most dangerous of all because it leads you and people like you straight to Hell “where the fire is not quenched and the worm never dies.” Repent, therefore, and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ.

      • @servant,

        1. Jesus could not have been ‘sinless’. His mother was Mary and she had the blood of Adam – Jesus inherited her DNA and so he had her original sin just like the rest of us (according to your religion).

        2. All religions are man made. The Jesus stories are just written legends like Hercules, The 12 Caesars, Homer, Gilgamesh or Thor.

        3. Atheism does not lead anyone to Hell. It is simply non-belief, the most sensible approach to all religion is to NOT believe it until there is evidence to show that it is real. There is no evidence to show that any God claims are based on anything real.

      • ” JESUS is the Sinless Lamb of God. HE is the Way, the Truth and the Life.”

        Because NOBODY was ever killed by Christians in the name of their religion, right? Never in the entire history of the religion?

        Are you done lying for the Lord?

        What is funny is you talk about loving one another in one sentence and then hurl nasty insults at Max in the other.

        Hypocrisy, dishonesty and Christianity seem to go hand in hand.
