It appears that all parties involved in the Syrian conflict have their god on their sides. They have been granted official permission by their religious leaders to rape the women of the enemy. It is difficult to know what to do. I have participated in a march to raise awareness of the horrors being inflicted on the civilian population and donated a few dollars but it does seem futile when you hear stuff like this. I will continue to rage against it and make people aware of it when I can. However it would help if the religious leaders called for peace. They make a mockery of their own religion by issuing fatwas that allow such barbarity to happen. Islam may mean “Peace” to some but it is all about Jihad and the promotion of fundamentalist sharia law. Its proponents are a disgrace to their own religion, to the prophet Muhammad and to humanity. It is not much different in other places like the Central African Republic where they are also very busy killing in the name of their god. Happy Birthday Muhammad. They have done you proud.
