An Iraqi priest who was tortured brutally by terrorists has said that the United States must ensure that the Middle East massacre of Christians at the hands of the Islamic State terror group is recognized as a genocide.
"From 2006 to 2014, nobody heard about my story because who am I to complain, as a priest? Who am I to complain about my life?" Father Douglas al-Bazi told The Daily Signal. "I don't like for people to feel sorry about me. But in 2014, [with] what happened with ISIS to my people, I said, that's it — we have to talk. We have to put an end to this."
U.S. President Barack Obama has reportedly compared the Islamic State terror group to the Joker from the Batman comic book series.
Jeffrey Goldberg wrote in an article for The Atlantic entitled "The Obama Doctrine" that the president compared the ISIS (also known as ISIL, IS) terrorist organization to the Joker in the 2008 film "The Dark Knight."
"There's a scene in the beginning in which the gang leaders of Gotham are meeting," Goldberg quotes the president as telling his advisers. more >>
