Obama says climate change is the gravest threat to the world.
The Pope says the Quran is a book of peace and Islam is not a violent religion.

There is a genocide of Christians in the Middle East, and Obama is inviting Clockmed to the White House. There is a genocide of Christians in the Middle East, and Obama refuses to designate it as such. Evil.

ISIS burns hundreds of Christian books in Mosul in its latest attempt to wipe the religion from civilisation

Footage shows militant tossing books onto a bonfire in Iraqi city of Mosul
ISIS have sought purge society of anything ‘blasphemous towards Allah’
Come after terror group destroyed 10,000 rare books in Mosul last year

By Simon Tomlinson for MailOnline, March 11, 2016
ISIS has released a video purporting to show members of its religious police burning hundreds of Christian books which it considers blasphemous towards Allah.

The footage shows a militant tossing pamphlets and manuscripts bearing crucifixes on the front cover onto a bonfire in the terror group’s stronghold of Mosul in northern Iraq.

It is the latest incident in which the jihadists have sought to purge society of anything that doesn’t conform to their violent interpretation of Islam.

Bonfire of the Christianities: ISIS has released a video purporting to show members of its religious police burning hundreds of Christian books which it considers blasphemous towards Allah

Up in smoke: The destruction of the books is the latest case in which the jihadists have sought to purge society of anything that doesn’t conform to their violent interpretation of Islam

The video was posted online yesterday by its news agency Amaq with the title: ‘Diwan of education destroys Christian instruction books in Mosul.’

The Diwan Al-Hisba – or Chamber of Morality Police – was set up by ISIS soon after seizing swathes of territory in its lightning offensive through Iraq and Syria in June 2014.

It is responsible for enforcing the group’s warped version of sharia law and imposes penalties ranging from flogging for minor misdemeanors like smoking to amputations and beheadings.

In February last year, it destroyed around 10,000 books and more than 700 rare manuscripts when it blew up the main library in Mosul.

They are thought to have included its collection of Iraqi newspapers dating to the early 20th century, maps and books from the Ottoman Empire and book collections contributed by around 100 of Mosul’s establishment families.

Speaking at the time, one local said a bearded militant told him: ‘These books promote infidelity and call for disobeying Allah. So they will be burned.’

The video was posted online on Thursday by its news agency Amaq with the title: ‘Diwan of education destroys Christian instruction books in Mosul’ – a reference to an arm of Diwan Al-Hisba, the ISIS religious police

The group has also destroyed many archaeological relics such as Palmyra in Syria, deeming them pagan, and even Islamic sites are considered idolatrous.

Mosul, the biggest city in the Islamic State group’s self-declared caliphate, boasts a relatively educated, diverse population that seeks to preserve its heritage sites and libraries.

In the chaos that followed the U.S.-led invasion of 2003 that toppled Saddam Hussein, residents near the Central Library hid some of its centuries-old manuscripts in their own homes to prevent their theft or destruction by looters.

But this time, the Islamic State group has made the penalty for such actions death.

A University of Mosul history professor, who spoke on condition he not be named because of his fear of the Islamic State group, said the extremists started wrecking the collections of other public libraries in December 2014.

He reported particularly heavy damage to the archives of a Sunni Muslim library, the library of the 265-year-old Latin Church and Monastery of the Dominican Fathers and the Mosul Museum Library with works dating back to 5000 BC.

  • Now HERE’S a book we should burn and wee on!

    • Dr. Doomsday

      Here is your book..

      • Rod Dodger

        Perfect choice in Qur’ans!
        This exact book, by Maulana Muhammad Ali, is the one affirming that Muhammad calls himself “Al-Tariq” — “The Morning Star.”
        It also affirms that the morning star’s god is “Al-Falaq” — “The Dawn.”
        God has something rather interesting to say to “Muhammad, the son of Allah” – in Isaiah 14:12…

      • Stephen Honig

        I would also like to see every terrorist dead or alive be donned in a pig skin coat. That may have an effect on them. It’s better than water boarding.

  • BrunoPBuhr

    Burn everything that shows that you are lying…um its all over the world dummy…can’t burn the truth, nice try flee bags!

    • SRN99

      Muslims can never wipe Christianity off the earth by burning bibles. But they can wipe their asses clean with their Quran

    • joe1429

      There will be nothing left of christianity, when these areas are liberated. Churches and museums all gone. Very sad

  • Mahou Shoujo

    Islam is the religion of fools, supported, rationalized and enabled by other fools, It is time to stop listening to the appeasers, dhimmis and liberal imbeciles who rationalize islam in its violence, arrogance and ignorance. With no option, more people will be forced to read the qur’an and see what pig spew it is.

  • Rod Dodger

    Understanding that Muhammad is the “morning star” and his god is “the dawn” (Qur’an 86 & 113), we know Muhammad to be “Lucifer” (Isaiah 14:12).
    Understanding Muhammad to be Lucifer and his Qur’an to be the “little book” and “speaking image” (Rev 10 & 13), we know they are part of the biblical beast. Therefore, Muhammadans are actually “Luciferians.”
    With the pope (all popes) endorsing Lucifer’s god as “God” (CCC 841), we know that they (popes) belong to the body of the harlot who rides the Islamic beast (Rev 17).
    Look around the world and count the number of national leaders (kings) who are endorsing the Islamic creep (both the noun and the verb).
    Look at northern Israel (ancient northern Israel – now known as “Syria”)… How many of the earth’s kings are gathered there now for the great day of God Almighty?
    This is the most exciting time in the history of man – save only the three decades that Jesus walked this earth.

    This is why it is so important for Christian and Jewish young people to Take Scripture Memorization Serious ! Even when it seems tedious and boring .When I was in high School, college and seminary we learned to memorize Even Whole Books from the Judaeo Christian Scriptures . If the muslim young people can do it , we should be able to do it EVEN BETTER ! Maybe some readers already do . But I’m throwing out the challenge . Not only is it a good Mental and Spiritual Exercise ! But someday you may Actually Need It !

    • Rod Dodger

      Memorization of God’s Word holds no value if one cannot apply its prophetic application in history. Can anyone memorize the application of 4,000 years of written history?
      No…
      The Qur’an is the babble of a demon-possessed man who blabbed for 23 years. To apply the warnings of the Bible means that Islam has fulfilled its purpose. Now gathered in the Valley of Armageddon (ancient northern Israel) are all of the earth’s nuclear kings. This summer is going to be a hoot!
      The Bible is approximately 800,000 Words. The Qur’an, the “little book,” is a mere 80,000 words – many of them repetition.
      If one wants to memorize something biblical and applicable in our daily lives, memorize Jesus’ sermon on the Mount.
      As it turns out, the Bright Morning Star (Jesus) has already defeated the self-declared “bright morning star” — Muhammad. The man who called himself “God” as “Jesus” as the bright morning star (Muhammad) is dead.

      • SRN99

        Mohammad was a demon-possessed deluded fool

        • Rod Dodger

          Yes, he was…
          He’s dead. Unlike the Christ Jesus that he tried to unseat, Muhammad is forever dead.
          He called himself “God.” God he was not. God is not Muhammad or his “Allah.”

        • Po Tato

          Someone who raped a 9-year-old girl should not be called a ‘deluded fool’

          That rapist is pure evil

      • michaelofsydney

        I can see a time where one who can memorise Jesus’s words in the Gospels will have a great treasure to share with other who will thirst for the word of God. I think the challenge to learn the Sermon on the Mount is a good and realistic one. I want to take up that challenge.

      • barrydonnelly

        “ALL SCRIPTURE is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine,for reproof,for correction,for instruction in righteousness.” (2 Tim.3:16) ” Your word have I hid in my heart that I might not sin against You . ” (Psalm 119: 11), ” For whatever things were written before were written for our learning,that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope .” (Romans 15:4) P.S. Technically Rod The Scriptures used by most Evangelical Protestants is a Compilation of 66 different books , 39 books making up the Old testament Canon and 29 making up the New . Further more though I also Love the Sermon on the Mount , To Place It Above All of the other passages in the other 66 books of the Canon by reducing its content to Mere Historical Prophecy is Ignorance and Absurd Exegeses ! And really Devalues the Rest of Scripture . Also I Truly Apologize for the Great Sunday School teachers I had and all the Great professors I had , and the great education God provided . and I also apologize for trying to be an example to and a challenge to young people Particularly Christians and Jews who Islam Particularily hates . I hope You Will For Give Me !!!

        • Rod Dodger

          You have missed the point. The Word of God is living and breathing. To pretend that it can all be memorized is akin to performing. Megachurch “pastors” perform. Their success is measured by head-counts and square footage.
          As His sons and daughters, we are to apply His Word to our lives and recognize His perfect prophetic story about this generation of man.
          No one placed the Sermon on the Mount “above” anything else that has been given to us by His Word. The Sermon on the Mount simply gives us a beautiful summation of how to live our lives under His direction.
          As for your apologies…
          Which of your Sunday School (a catechism) taught you that Muhammad was Lucifer?
          Which of your professors showed you how Lucifer arranged his name in the three Greek numerals of Chi, Xi and stigma?
          Since it is by God’s will that these things have been revealed to you now, is your education not proven to be forever growing?
          Challenging young people to memorize the 800,000 words of the Bible is much like watching the Presidential debates 18 hours a day, every day, and placing one’s trust in the next hopeful President – a distraction pulling people’s attention away from what’s happening in Israel at this very moment.
          With the false prophet (Lucifer) proven to be Muhammad, his god proven to be the masquerading light and the god of fortresses, with the Qur’an proven to be the “little book” of Rev 10 and the “speaking image” of Rev 13, with Muhammad proven to be the man who has set himself up in God’s temple and even calling himself God — isn’t this the time to recognize and apply His Word?
          What does He tell us happens in this moment?
          “…in the days when the seventh angel is about to sound his trumpet (Rev 11:15-19), the mystery of God will be accomplished, just as he announced to his servants and prophets.” – Rev 10:7
          With Muhammad, his god, his army, his book and his evil scheme revealed… With Catholicism proven to be the harlot who rides this beast (CCC 841)…
          …the mystery of God has been accomplished.
          In the coming days, the seventh angel will sound his trumpet.
          Inspire young people to immerse themselves in applying the Word of God. We’ve reached the end of this generation.

        Muhammad’s Tomb: OCCUPIED
        Christ’s Tomb: EMPTY!

    • michaelofsydney

      Yes. And at least have a Bible stashed away somewhere safe, because the time may come where they will go house to house and take and destroy them. Your point about memorising Scripture is valid

  • joker

    Book burning is so wrong. Even I do not like the book I do not burn it. Even the f.c.ing koran I will not burn. But I will shoot muzzrats one day!

    • SRN99

      The Quran is not worth to be used as toilet paper

      • Rod Dodger

        It’s the little book in the fallen angel’s hand (Rev 10).
        It’s the speaking image that causes Luciferians to k!ll anyone who refuses to worship it (Rev 13:14-15).
        What it’s worth is the valid evidence that God is God and Muhammad’s Allah is not Him!

  • SRN99

    Islam is a worthless and hopeless religion. Burning bibles and killing Christians can never stop Christians from going to heaven. But a drop of pig oil on Muslims can send them to hell.

    • Rod Dodger

      To the contrary!
      Islam is the religion of the false prophet. With Muhammad’s verbalized covenant between the masquerading angel of light (his god) and the “many” Muslims, Islam actually provides the proof of God’s existence – proof that Christ-deniers have been asking for over centuries.
      Muhammad, his god, their little book, Muslims, jihad, their changed laws, their changed fixed times, their hatred of Jesus’ faithful Christians and His Father’s chosen Jews – all of this fulfills ALL biblical warnings of the false prophet, his Antichrist god (THE Antichrist), their army and their attempt to displace the Father, His Son and their elect.
      The realization of God’s Word is awesome!

      • SRN99

        They hated Jesus and because their founder mohamad was a common criminal who could not even perform a single miracle. They said that Mohammad writing the Quran is the miracle, but if that is the case, all of us on earth have written better books than this piece of garbage

        • Rod Dodger

          Like the Word warns, Muhammad would lead people astray by his “ayahs,” the “miracle” verses of his spoken word. Paul warns us of him in 2The 2. Daniel warns us of him in chapter 7. John warns us of him – by name – in Rev 13. Isaiah warns us of him in chapter 14.
          Pam Geller is all over this…
          Lucifer is Satan in the flesh, he attempts to unseat God in the flesh – Christ Jesus.
          Barack and his Progressive followers endorse Lucifer.
          Don’t fret. This is the prophetic beginning of God’s elect.

    And the obama admin STILL debating wheather to call this Genocide! Pathetic

    • ljm4

      He will never, they will never say anything about islam. They are compliant to sharia’s quashing of free speech already.
      He will not slander islam by telling the truth about anything islamic.
      This is what HR569 is all about.
      This is what HRC’s 7/15/11 shame and peer pressure speech is all about. It’s what the Cairo Declaration of Human Rights is all about. Human Rights means muslim rights not HUMAN rights.
      And lastly it’s what the OIC’s 10 Year Plan of Action is all about.

      AND that is: Turning all nations, in fact the planet, sharia compliant.

      As stated by Hasan Al-Bann founder muslim brotherhood: “It is the nature of islam to dominate not to be dominated; to impose it’s laws upon all nations and to extend it’s power to the entire planet.”

      • Rod Dodger

        What this nation of Progressives chooses to dismiss is the statement that Muslims heard all around the world:
        “The future MUST NOT BELONG to those who slander the prophet of Islam [Lucifer].” – Barack Hussein Obama, just days after the 9/11 terror attack in Benghazi.

        What this nation of Progressives chooses to ignore is the fact that their choice in leaders was named in honor of Muhammad – Lucifer. “Hussein” was the name of Muhammad’s grandson.

        No man can change the course of this nation – a course away from God – chosen by its new Godless majority. This prophetic time was written about over two millennia ago.

      • joe1429

        maybe you are right. they have until the 17th to do it. My inclination is they wont even do this,, these pc corrrect sobs, or they would have done it already. too bz kissing the canadian pm commie butt

    Islam, the false religion…. It is not even a religion, it is a CULT and a SECT. It builds its fellowship of ignorance upon the world’s less educated people. This is how it recrutes and then controls its own followers.

    Islam is hate. They preach hate. They have no plan of what to do if they eventually eliminate everyone who does not follow sunni-islam.

  • Michael Copeland

    Memo for Simon Tomlinson of MailOnline,
    IS’s “violent interpretation of Islam” is Mohammed’s.
    Their “warped version of sharia law” is Mohammed’s.

    Please, journalists, inform yourselves. It is easy to do

    Dear Pam,

    This ain’t the first time the moslem savages burn books

    The Library of Alexandria, the world’s biggest and most complete library at that time, was burned down by the moslem savages, too !

    http://www.islam-watch.org/authors/59-kammuna/370-did-caliph

    • michaelofsydney

      The muslims destroyed the great Indian library which was an even greater store house of knowledge that Alexandria. Anything that is not of allah is haram. The Chinese, Soviets, Bulgarians and others have burned Bibles yet it remains the No 1 selling book of all time….and the most shop lifted too.

      • IzlamIsTyranny

        The great Buddhist library of Nalandra — burned to the ground by f’ing muslums and the Buddhist priests murdered en mass.

    Let’s wipe islam and all of its followers from the face of the Earth instead! Filthy sub-humans!

    • Tatiana Covington

      Use them as cheap slave labor instead, to rebuild infrastructure and eventually the rockets and launchpads for the Mars Colonization Program. Once they’re all clapped out, then, whenever colony ships blast off, just toss them into the flame buckets.

      Two things done at once.

  • michaelofsydney

    This is a major reason why YOU should (whether you are Christian or not),buy at least one Bible. There will come a time where this book will not be available in stores or anywhere. In the dark days ahead, it will be of some comfort to be able to read the Word of God.

    Hey you stupid sandbagger muslimes, Jesus Christ lives in our heart, not in a book.

    exactly what all of the other totalitarian regimes of the last century also did – try to rewrite history in their own psychopathic view.

  • Jane

    The greatest conflict in the world today is between Islam and civilization. Islam still practices slavery. One terrifying night in 1993, when Arab raiders invaded her North African home, while they were burning and pillaging her village, young Mende Nazer was captured at the age of 12 and sold into slavery. She talks in her book, “Slave, My True Story”, how her slave owners called her, “black slave”, and the mental, physical, and sexual abuse she went through. How she ate the family leftovers like a dog. She talks about how, “These Arabs don’t help us”, even though they share the same country with us”. (Much like they arent helping with the Syrian refugees, besides building mosques in other countries) She talks about how much respect her people had for President Bush, senior, “all this good stuff was being sent by America”. Women in the village even started naming their children after him. Her last slave owner was a Sudanese man, a diplomat living in London. That is when she escaped and England gave her her freedom.

  • It’s a good start to end ALL monotheist religions.

    So burn ISIS in retaliation.
