Video: Islamic State Destroys Statues, Burns Down Cathedral in Philippines

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.

Shot in a style similar to videos that showed the destruction of the Mosul Museum in Iraq, the terrorists tore down all the statues within the Roman Catholic church, breaking them apart with hammers and stomping on them. They took down the large cross that adorns the church, as well as trampling the baby Jesus and tearing apart a photo of Pope Benedict XVI. The terrorists then set the building on fire:

ANNOUNCEMENT: We have installed a new SHA-256 secure server certificate on our domain and we have a NEW donate link:

FR is now more secure than ever! Google, Firefox, et al, were flagging our old SHA-1 secure server as “not secure” even though our certificate was paid-up, still valid, still in force and our secure server was still encrypting our donation transactions as securely as always to the SHA-1 standard. You should see a green “Secure” padlock now when you click on our new donate link and that signifies that your transaction will be encrypted by the newly installed SHA-256 routine. We have a little more work to complete for redirects, etc, but when it’s done, everything on will be served as secure documents.

Donate securely online: Click here to enter your pledge by Credit Card, PayPal or Check! (make it a monthly if you can)

The old SHA-1 link and server will be phased out and retired. When John finishes with the redirects, the old posts containing the old link will automatically be redirected to the new link.

Thank you very much for your loyal support and for bearing with us!

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.

They’re like the Grinch, who foolishly believed that he could kill the Christmas spirit in Whoville by stealing all of the Christmas decorations. These idiot muslims can’t comprehend that the one true God doesn’t inhabit inanimate objects (especially not a hunk of rock in Mecca), but rather lives in the hearts of those who trust and follow Him.

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.
