Assyrian Christian in Iraq: Sunni Islamists gouge his eyes out and torture him to death

Modern Tokyo Times
Ashur Issa Jacob was butchered and mutilated by Sunni Islamic fanatics in Iraq and the Assyrian International News Agency (http://www.aina.org) and Ankawa (http://www.ankawa.com/english/) are working tirelessly in order to notify the outside world about the plight of religious minorities in Iraq.
It appears that Sunni Islamic operatives had demanded a huge ransom and in the mindset of these Sunni Islamic fanatics they will justify the slaughter of an innocent on the basis of jihad, jizya, and the House of War theory which can be found in the Koran and the Hadiths.
Arthur Issa Jacob was an Assyrian Christian construction worker and it is clear that he was tortured slowly before his death. Of course America had to give Osama bin Laden a Muslim burial and show respect to a global jihadist who gloated when thousands of innocents were killed on September 11.
However, for the followers of radical Sunni Islam all non-Muslim infidels are not worthy of any kindness and in their mindset they can kill humans in such bestial ways and somehow they still deem themselves to be holy warriors of Islam.
Sunni Islamic fanatics in Iraq have massacred Shia Muslims, Christians, Shabaks, Yazidis, Mandaeans, moderate Sunni Muslims, and others; and in their world view they will meet many virgins in heaven after killing innocents in the name of Allah.
Sunni Islamic fanaticism is destroying the fabric of Iraqi society and many Shia Muslims have been killed during funerals, visiting religious holy places, while shopping and in their homes.
The Kurds in the north have military power in order to protect themselves because Sunni Islamic fanaticism is also tinged with Arab chauvinism.
However, the Christians, and other smaller minorities, have no militias to protect themselves from the evil of radical Sunni Islam.
Multinational forces have been told by political elites to do nothing, therefore, the invasion of Iraq left minorities to the evil forces of Sunni Islamic jihadists. Political elites in the West have “turned a blind eye” and just like in Kosovo the Christian community has been abandoned.
Assyrian International News Agency stated that “Ashur Issa Jacob, an Assyrian construction worker, was found dead today in Kirkuk, North Iraq. He was kidnapped on Saturday by Al-Qaeda operatives, it is believed, who made a $100,000 ransom demand. His body was mutilated. His head was nearly severed off. He was tortured before he was executed, according to the Kirkuk police. His eyes were gouged out, his ears were cut off and his faced was skinned. There also were signs of dog bites on the body. Mr. Jacob is survived by his wife and three children.”
Note the difference: America gives an Islamic funeral to a mass killer called Osama bin Laden but radical Sunni Islamists torture an innocent Christian to death and then they leave his body to be humiliated and left out in the open for all to see.
Iraq’s future is being destroyed by religious fanatics whose only goal is to enforce a medieval system alongside Arabization and a Sunni Islamic state based on Islamic Sharia law.
America and other Western nations who invaded Iraq have a moral obligation to protect the citizens of Iraq; irrespective of religious faith, ethnicity or no faith.
After all, the fleeing of so many Christians and other minorities began because of the forces which were unleashed after Iraq was invaded.
If nothing is done to stem the tide of Arab Sunni Islamic fanaticism then Iraq will become a nation where non-Muslim minorities will no longer exist.
The brutal murder of Ashur Issa Jacob clearly shows you the mindset of radical Sunni Islam in Iraq.
Therefore, why isn’t something being done to protect the religious minorities of Iraq?
