ISIS Brutality Repeat of Earlier Abuse By Muslims in Middle East
Occurring primarily between 1915-16 (although continuing through at least 1919), some one million Armenian and 250,000 Assyro-Chaldean and Syrian Orthodox Christians were brutally slaughtered or starved to death during forced deportations through desert wastelands.
The identical gruesome means used by IS/IL to humiliate and massacre its Christian victims were employed on a scale that was an order of magnitude greater by the Ottoman Muslim Turks, often abetted by local Muslim collaborators (the latter being another phenomenon which also happened during the IS/IL jihad campaign against Iraq’s Christians).
Tragically 2/3 of Muslims from Morocco to Indonesia — hardly a “fringe minority of extremists” — support the eternal Islamic “ideal” to re-create a Caliphate.
My Hannity Appearance: Ottoman Caliphate of 1915-19 Exponentially Worse Than ISIS
The precedent for such atrocities is not so distant.
