Al-Qaeda-linked rebels in Syria have killed an Italian Jesuit priest who disappeared in the east of the country late last month, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Wednesday.
Paolo Dall’Oglio, a vocal supporter of the uprising against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and some Islamist rebel groups, disappeared in the rebel-held city of Raqqa on July 29.
He had served for three decades at the Monastery of Saint Moses the Abyssinian, or Deir Mar Musa, before being expelled from the country in 2012. Since then he had returned to Syria at least twice.
The British-based monitoring group cited local activists in the city of Raqqa with close links to Dall’Oglio as saying he was killed while being held by fighters from the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).

LAHORE, PAKISTAN (BosNewsLife)-- Christians in Pakistan's Punjab province were still awaiting justice Tuesday, August 13, more than two weeks after a local Christian leader and landowner was shot and killed by at least one Islamic gunman in front of his young children, family members and activists said.

Ishaq Masih, a resident of an Okara district village near provincial capital Lahore, was reportedly shot dead July 27 while his two young sons were watching the bloodshed.

The main gunman was publicly identified as Muhammad Luqman, also known as Ranjha. He allegedly illegally occupied Masih's land, accompanied by at least seven others.

"They surrounded us and started beating my father," said the late Christian's 15-year-old son, Arshad Masih in published remarks seen by BosNewsLife. "I and my brother cried for help but nobody was there to help us. They were laughing and raising slogans that this bleady Christian has a lot of land," he recalled in a statement distributed by rights activists.

Local Christians linked the attack to Masih's activities who besides being an active landowner was also the village's Christian leader,  supporting reportedly persecuted Christians in the area..


Brainwashing innocent young children into explosive-laden suicide bombers is a technique the Taliban have been using for more than a decade.

"It was two years ago when a man gave me a heavy bag tied with wires and connected to a button. The man told me that whenever I saw security personnel around, I should get closer to them and press the button," 16-year-old Sami Ullah said when interviewed Kandahar’s Sarpoza Prison.

Sami is one of the dozens of Afghan teenagers who were jailed for their alleged involvement in various crimes including robbery and drug trade. However, Sami's case is different from the other inmates because he was for planning to carry out a suicide bombing against Kandahar’s Afghan security forces.

When the child prisoners were asked what crimes they had committed, most of them refused to answer and just looked at the reporters.

Sami, however, said he was innocent. He said he was misled by the Taliban, adding that he did not understand what a suicide attack meant.

Sami was lucky because he was not able to detonate the explosives handed to him by the Taliban. Before he could press the button of the device, he was arrested by the security forces.

"When I was arrested I was just 14-years-old, and I have been in prison since 23 months. I hate the Taliban because they deceived me and I could have blown myself had I pressed the device’s button," Sami said.

Gul Mohammad, 17, was another would-be suicide bomber who was arrested in July last year in Kandahar City’s Zharay District which is 450 km south of Kabul.

"When I was 15, my father sent me to a Madrasa (religious school) in Helmand province. But the teachers there decided to send me to a Pakistani Madrasa so that I could improve my education," Muhammad said.

Muhammad said that while at the Mawlavi Massoum seminary in Pakistan’s Quetta city, the mullahs told him that Afghanistan had been occupied by the US. "They sent me back with a suicide jacket to Kandahar and ordered me to carry out a suicide attack. Fortunately, I was captured by security forces and I am still alive," Mohammad said.

Boko Haram militants dressed as soldiers opened fire on worshippers leaving a mosque in Dumba, in Nigeria’s far northeast this week, killing at least 35 people.
It was the second such attack this month, officials said on Friday.
“Boko Haram people attacked the village on the ground that they have refused to cooperate with them, that they refused their message,” defence spokesman Brigadier General Chris Olukolade told AFP of the incident in Dumba, referring to Islamist extremist group Boko Haram.
“The report that was presented has it that 35 people were killed and 14 wounded.”
The attack occurred on Monday, but the information did not become public until Friday with phone lines cut in the region and the village located in a remote area.

A separate military source speaking on condition of anonymity said Boko Haram gunmen dressed as soldiers entered the village early Monday and took up positions at a crossroads, where they fired upon worshippers leaving a mosque after morning prayers.
The source said the attack was believed to be in reprisal for a raid by soldiers and vigilantes in the village the previous week that resulted in the arrest of Boko Haram members.
Separately earlier this month on August 10 and 11, suspected Boko Haram members stormed a mosque in Konduga and shot dead 44 worshippers as well as 12 other people in a nearby village in another area of the northeast.
Those attacks were believed to be revenge over citizen vigilante groups forming to help the military battle Boko Haram, which has been waging an insurgency since 2009.


I could go on and on and on with news articles. This is just a small sampling spread among a few countries.  Islam is an EVIL destructive cult that takes violence, destruction, death and hate every where it goes. 

That is not to say every Muslim is EVIL.  This is not to say every Muslim is a terrorist.  This is just to point out Islam IS EVIL. Anyone who follows the actions of Muhammad as documented in the Hadith is EVIL
