Islamic State jihadis fighting to establish a caliphate in Marawi, the Philippines’ only “Islamic city,” released a video this week showing the complete destruction of the city’s St. Mary’s Cathedral.
Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists affiliated with the local jihadi outfits, Maute group and Abu Sayyaf, overran the city in May, taking Christians hostage, killing anyone who could not recite Quranic verses, and flying the Islamic State flag over the city’s mosques. President Rodrigo Duterte imposed a 60-day martial law period over the entire island of Mindanao, where Marawi is located, and has launched an airstrike offensive against the terrorists.
Philippine authorities believe that many of those fighting in Marawi are not indigenous jihadis but foreigners who have traveled to the Philippines to help establish an ISIS caliphate there. ISIS’s Amaq News Agency has helped bolster this belief by releasing two propaganda videos from Marawi. The latest, released this week, shows ISIS jihadis within St. Mary’s Cathedral.

So today it’s ok to tell the truth about islam on breitbart?
Jihadist Lives Matter protesters?
Christians need to understand that only language the radical Islamists understand is quick, effective and brutal response. This vile ideology is not going to go away by looking the other way.
Thank goodness Duterte isn’t squishy about dealing with these thugs.
They’ve got a very rude awakening waiting for them one day if they don’t turn from their satanic death cult.
It’s time to reconvene the Wannsee Conference to deal with the Muslim problem.
