As if the revolting crimes of the Islamic State were not already bad enough, these rampaging Islamic marauders have added the unthinkable to their list of beheadings, raping of young girls, women, and boys; calling for global attacks against the West and Israel; throwing a gay teen from the roof of a building, and ordering the murders of disabled children and babies born with Down’s Syndrome.

“ISIS is using a lot of snipers and plenty of IEDs,” Capt. Omar Nazar, head of an elite unit in the Iraqi Emergency Response Division, told FoxNews.com. “They have booby-trapped a lot of homes and they are moving civilians around to use them as human shields.”….
….Government forces, backed by U.S. airstrikes, have smashed through three ISIS perimeters, taken control of the city’s main hospital and a key bridge across the Euphrates and killed regional ISIS commander Abu Amir Ansari. The closer Iraqi forces get to liberating the city, the more desperate the black-clad terrorist army now under siege becomes…..
