Barbaric Atrocities And Yet The World Does Nothing! (Graphic)

Sometimes I despair at humanity today. Have we become so insular that we care for nothing unless it actually affects us personally? The battle against Muslim extremists has been going on for more than ten years, and things are now reaching a stage of such barbarity the like of which hasn’t been seen for close on five hundred years. I refer of course to the I.S. killers in Syria and Iraq.

Kobani Citizens Flee The Terror By Crossing Into Turkey

Not long ago we had the public spectacle of the beheading of three innocent westerners shown live on TV across the world while their executioner gloated. Since that time the fighting in the Syrian border town of Kobani has been in the headlines with all its horrors.

The story of one Kobani resident who managed to flee across the border into Turkey is spine-chilling. The story comes from a thirteen-year-old boy who tried to flee across the border with his brother. He managed to slip through but his 20 year-old brother was captured by insurgents. As he ran he heard behind him “Blood-curdling” screams from his brother just before his head was cut off. The moment stays with him and he will never be able to forget it. He said, “They pushed him to the ground and sawed his head off, shouting ‘Allahu Akbar. I see it in my dreams every night and every morning I wake up and remember everything.”

Others who have escaped tell much the same story. Amin Fajar, a man with four children said, “I have seen tens, maybe hundreds, of bodies with their heads cut off. Others with just their hands or legs missing. I have seen faces with their eyes or tongues cut out – I can never forget it for as long as I live. They put the heads on display to scare us all.” After a pause he said, “The children saw the headless people. They saw them. My neighbour was beheaded because they said he was ‘delivering vegetables to the kaffir’. They burned his farm, livestock, even his bees – they destroyed everything.”

The horrible thing about the whole episode, is that according to witnesses, most of these terrible acts were carried out by European jihadists. Some were heard speaking English, while others were Chechen and other European nationalities.

In another harrowing tale Ahmed Bakki, who had a farm in a village near Kobane, said his cousin, a 48-year-old father of seven, stayed behind when the rest of the family fled. “We phoned my cousin and I.S. answered his phone. They said, ‘We’ve got his head, and we’re taking it to Jarabulus (an IS stronghold).” He added: “An English teacher in our village tried to reason with them, but they just called him a kaffir (non-believer) and tied him to their car and dragged him away. We heard they beheaded him later.”

Such are the atrocities currently being waged on civilians in and around Kobani. Those who cannot get away fear a massacre of epic proportions if I.S. takes over the town completely.

The U.N. Charter

The U.N. Charter

So the big question is: What is the rest of the world, with the exception of a very few nations, doing about it? Well, the short answer is:- Nothing! The greater majority of world countries, and in particular the United Nations, are quite prepared to sit on their collective hands and take no action to stop this atrocity. I don’t know about you, but I find that appalling.

NATO Participating Nations

The only action taken against this murdering band of cut-throats has been initiated by some NATO member countries on the initiative of President Obama of the USA. America, Britain, France and Denmark among others, along with the Arab States of Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates have all taken up arms against these monsters. Now even Australia has joined the coalition against these people. All NATO actions are restricted to bombing I.S. positions only but that is at least something.

But what of the rest of the world, and in particular the United Nations whose charter includes solving such situations. Apart from verbally ‘condemning’ the atrocities, the U.N. has done precisely nothing.

If this body functioned as it is supposed to do, it would be raising an international army to wipe these terrorists off the face of the earth. The only time this has been done effectively was in Korea in the 1950’s, and it worked. The old saying is true: “If you want world peace, you have to fight for it!”

Anyone who thinks this is not possible may quote the Arab reaction to such a move which may or may not be positive. In that case it is the responsibility of the U.N. to persuade the Arab nations that it is for a good cause. We already have five of them fighting alongside the western nations in Iraq and Syria and I believe it is because they do not want to see a terrorist state on their doorstep. The divide between Sunni’s and Shiites is great in some countries, and most Middle East nations realize that if I.S. end up dominating Iraq and Syria they will not stop there.

I am convinced that all the trouble in the Middle East is the work of insurgents who infiltrated countries and started trouble. This is certainly true of Afghanistan and Iraq. Other Shiia controlled nations fear the spread of the Sunni I.S. into their own countries once they have consolidated their position in Iraq and Syria. I think they are right.

For the U.N. to convince these nations that their own survival rests on the defeat of I.S. should therefore not be too difficult. Once the Arab nations are on board other countries should be asked to contribute to an armed force that will enter both countries and put an end to I.S.

The problem of Syria is of course different, because that is really an internal problem and can perhaps only be solved by forcing the two sides to the negotiating table.

Boko Haram

Terrorism is currently a world-wide problem with insurgents fighting in many countries across the world. In this too the United Nations should be taking a lead role in defeating them once and for all. Boko Haram and al Shabab are still active in Africa, the Taliban are still fighting in Afghanistan and in the Far East there are many groups active. Terrorism has become the main danger in the 21st century and unless it is stopped once and for all it will never end.

This means that unless everybody joins together to stamp out this curse the disease will spread until not a nation on Earth is safe. These people have but one goal, and that is to see the world become Islamic, and they will continue until either this is achieved, or they are dead. I prefer the latter!

  1. the world is people, the people of the world are powerless to address the causes of poverty and war hence why wars continue and people suffer. people have tried to help the poor for eons yet the poor and downtrodden are getting more and more numerous there is a situation called victim fatigue, when people just give up charity because it is not working. the gov of the world do not listen to the people. they are listening to another voice one of self interest and oppression for the masses to the benefit of a few.

    • Hi Roberta and welcome.
      On a global scale I agree with your comment, but for my generation there was a lot more help for the poor. Generally speaking, today’s people have become more self-centred and so the number of poor increase daily because they do not get the help they used to from neighbours and friends. Today its all about having more! One of the main drivers in modern society is: “If it doesn’t affect me or my family directly I am not interested.” Sad but very true.
      The will to work together to rid the world of evil has long gone, even among the members of the United Nations, which is practically everybody. A sad state of affairs, but I fear one that will not change.
      Best Regards,
      Roy.
