ISIS killed 500 Yazidis, buried some alive incl women and children - Iraq

Extremists from the Islamic State have killed at least 500 people, including women and children, Iraqi officials said. Some of the victims were buried alive.

The killings reported by Iraqi Human Rights Minister Mohammed Shia al-Sudani to Reuters add to a long list of atrocities reportedly committed by the radical group in Iraq and neighboring Syria, where it wants to create a caliphate.

"Last week an American journalist was beheaded by a member of ISIS. A man with a British accent. He’s just one of the estimated 12,000 foreign fighters in Syria and Iraq joining radical Islamic groups.  Among them are American, Brits and many Europeans.  With passports that allow them to travel freely without a visa. Many are warning of danger. That members of ISIS are only a plane ticket away from American shores. This hour, On Point: why westerners are joining ISIS and what it means for our security."

May God shelter the innocent and have mercy on those who have committed grave acts of evil. May He soften our hearts so that we may love our neighbor, even when our neighbor is our enemy.

This is despicable.
