Islamic State militants have destroyed a lot of ancient culture during the last weeks in a propaganda run across Iraq. The latest victim is a church believed to be in the state of Nineveh in Iraq. Not only did the militants release pictures of themselves destroying the church but also damaging and insulting various Christian pictures.
One of those (see above) is St. George. Why this matters so much? Well, to us in England St. George is the holy protector of our country. A symbol of strength, our Saint. ISIL is probably most with England and the UK at war and they fail not to express it over and over again. The threat is all too real but how much longer can it be ignored.
How much longer do we let the destroy our own culture until they are stopped?
I’m thinking of the brave heroes who have left the UK to fight in Syria against ISIL, IS and ISIS. Against Islam Extremism. Those guys have long run out of patience to wait and see what happens next, they take things in their own hands. God bless our soldiers!
