U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry harshly condemned the treatment of women by the arch-terrorist organized death squad known as ISIS.

Kerry is horrified that ISIS “takes credit for the abduction, enslavement, rape, forced marriage and sale of several thousand Yezidi and other minority women and girls.”

But Kerry then states that the misogynistic acts by ISIS is “just as despicabl[e]” as the organization’s justification of its acts by “claiming it is somehow sanctioned by religion. Wrong. Dead wrong.” [emphasis added]

Really? Just as despicable?

Echoing President Obama, Kerry then explains that ISIS “does not represent Islam and Islam does not condone or honor such depravity. In fact, these actions are a reminder that ISIL is an enemy of Islam.”

U.S. leaders are so fearful of condemning the monstrous terrorists who claim to act in the name of Islam without pointing out that Islam is the victim and not the problem. That naked fear may make it less likely that their statements will either assuage Islamists or stop the barbarism.

Kerry, grateful that the international community and religious leaders of all faiths have strongly condemned the barbarity of ISIS, asked them to again condemn the terrorists for their treatment of women.

The action to which Kerry commits is the efforts of the United States to “lead the international coalition to degrade and defeat” ISIS, and continue “to track the entity’s abduction, enslavement, sale, rape, forced marriage, and abuse of women and girls.”

The administration has admitted that the goal of defeating ISIS could take years to accomplish.

  1. The Muslims is evil. The Muslims do the work of the devil. The Muslims must be controlled by the world. These most Muslims can not read they take it on faith that what their clerics tell them what their holy books day. And those that can read twist and lie to those whom can not read. Then on faith the one’s that can’t read act on the lies they have been told. The Muslim leaders say you must beat your wife daily you must cut off their clitoris so they won’t enjoy sex. If your daughter is raped you must beat her to death on the streets for all to see you mist beat her to death. If one takes something that doesn’t belong to him you must cut off the hand that did the deed. Muslims are a sick perverted twisted evil rase. And of is because they can’t read or write.

  4. No apologies here. ISIS is a “death squad” as the writer said, and cannot rightfully use the guise of any religion to justify it’s actions. There is no justification for genocide and mass murder. The End.

  5. The genocidal pedophile Muhammad preached and practiced a vast array of atrocities against non-Muslims — and Muslim women, little girls, and Muslims considered not-Muslim-enough — including the raping and sexual enslavement of even married non-Muslim captives. And little, prepubescent girls:

    “Also (prohibited are) women already married, except those whom your right hands possess […]” (Qur’an 4:24).

    “Narrated ‘Aisha: that the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old, and then she remained with him for nine years (i.e., till his death)” (Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 64 and 65).

    John “Genghis Khan” Kerry and the allegedly-former-Muslim in the White House are lying to you.

    ISIS’s actions are “Islamic” because Muhammad did it first.

    Everything ISIS/ISIL/IS does is "Islamic" because Muhammad did it first.
