Report: ISIS Burns 45 Iraqi Citizens to Death Near Recently-Captured Town

IraqAL BAGHDADI, Iraq — Approximately 45 Iraqi citizens have reportedly been burned to death by the barbaric Islamic group ISIS, also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

Local Police Chief Qasim al-Obeidi told the BBC that some of the dozens that were killed may be with the Iraqi Security Forces (ISF), which has been fighting to push back the insurgency of ISIS jihadists. The atrocity took place near the town of al-Baghdadi, which had been captured by the Islamic organization last week, but was later met by ISF, who sought to reclaim al-Baghdadi from ISIS.

The massacre occurs just weeks after a captured Jordanian pilot was videotaped as he was locked in a cage and burned alive, and days after video circulated of 21 men dressed in orange jumpsuits being beheaded by the terrorist organization.

“All crusaders: safety for you will be only wishes, especially if you are fighting us all together,” a man states on the video with a North American English accent. “The sea you have hidden Sheikh Osama Bin Laden’s body in, we swear to Allah we will mix it with your blood.”

Both Jordanian and Egyptian forces have begun striking back at ISIS for its evils, and Barack Obama has requested authorization from Congress for increased action against the organization.

But some are expressing frustration after State Department spokesperson Marie Harf told MSNBC’s Chris Matthews this week that America can’t conquer ISIS by force, as she asserted that the root problem behind the terrorists’ behavior is their poverty—that they need help finding employment.

“We’re killing a lot of them, and we’re going to keep killing more of them,” she stated. “So are the Egyptians, so are the Jordanians. They’re in this fight with us. But we cannot win this war by killing them. We cannot kill our way out of this war. We need in the medium-to-longer-term to go after the root causes that leads people to join these groups, whether it’s a lack of opportunity for jobs, whether …”

“We’re not going to be able to stop that in our lifetime or 50 lifetimes,” Matthews interrupted. “There’s always going to be poor people. There’s always going to be poor Muslims, and as long as there are poor Muslims, the trumpet’s blowing and they’ll join. We can’t stop that, can we?”

Harff insisted that terrorism would end if nations inhabited by ISIS and other groups had more prosperous economies.

“We can work with countries around the world to help improve their governance,” she said. “We can help them build their economies so they can have job opportunities for these people.”

Some mocked the idea on social media, with #JobsforISIS becoming a popular hashtag.

    how can the state department be so stup*d? it is not poverty, its the worldview that goes back 1400 yrs ago. and YES we can conquer them by KILLING them before they KILL us. there is such a thing as EVIL and if this facked up govt cant admit to the inhumanity happening in their faces, then we are all naive like lambs to a slaughter.

    In spite of Obama not being able to state the truth of who Isil is and that they are following the koran as Muhammed stated it and set up this caliphate. Obama constantly states they are extremists and not true muslims but the truth is they are following their koran and what their false prophet Muhammed set up in the caliphate they declare. It is those Muslims that do not live the koran fully who say Isil are extremist terrorist and yes they are for they whole heartedly follow Muhammed’s caliphate, this is why they kill muslims too, those Isil perceives as Muslims in name only. There are many who claim to be Christian and yet do not follow Christ’s teachings as well such as those who have killed using the name of Christ in which clearly they are not following Jesus Christ who do such things for Christ came that we could have life, He didn’t come to destroy life but to give it and true followers of Christ do not destroy lives but enrich lives as Christ did. And there is a huge difference between Christ and Muhammed, for one Christ was, and is and is to come, He is God, all things were created for Him and by Him and the false prophet Muhammed was a delusional man who made up a religion which included killing anyone who does not believe in this caliphate and he advocated killing anyone who will not submit to sharia law and the whole koran with all it’s rituals. Obama should read the entire koran. He’s living in a fantasy land and calls for tolerance to all faiths regardless of truth.

      And providing jobs and helping them economically will not stop Isil from doing as Muhammed has declared as to the caliphate, jobs and prosperity will not stop what they believe their leader the prophet muhammed has declared in this caliphate will not stop those who choose to go fight with Isil, they believe that Muhammed is warranted in this caliphate and nothing, not jobs or economic help is going to change their beliefs in following the barbaric Muhammed beliefs as set up in their Koran!
