Shocking accounts of medieval brutality — including video of kneeling Iraqis being gunned down, a Twitter image of a young jihadist holding a severed head and threats by ISIS to take its savagery to the White House — have prompted desperate calls for the international community to stop the fanatical Islamic group.
I just don’t get it. Why would anybody who’s been paying attention find Muslim barbarism “shocking?”
It’s been going on for 1500 years.
Once upon a time we understood that. Apparently in these times when congenial fantasies are substituted for hard realities that is no longer the case.
