There is a lot of coverage of ISIS/ISIL lately. It's warranted, because - despite their small numbers - they have some smart experienced people at the top, and access to a lot of funds and armaments. While there are some who are against the U.S. becoming involved in any way, shape, or form with yet another war in the Middle East, this one seems different. Their explosive growth (no pun intended) and ability to overrun trained armies makes them a more formidable foe than the ragtag band of al-Qaeda in Afghanistan.
While it may be non-Muslims (ie: Christians) in the U.S. who think they are the main targets of this group, the reality is that the vast majority of those killed by them have been other Muslims. It's not enough to be Muslim in their eyes - you must be their
particular brand of Muslim or you will be put to death.
Here in the U.S., we shudder to think of it. What animals they must be! WE would never do anything like that here... we wouldn't think of killing others because they don't subscribe to "our" Christian beliefs...
