Islamic State tells Iraqi women to wear full veil

As originally posted on: PakTribune.com
July 26, 2014

BAGHDAD: Islamic State, the al-Qaeda offshoot that seized large swathes of northern Iraq last month, has warned women in the city of Mosul to wear full-face veils or risk severe punishment.

The insurgents, who have declared a caliphate in parts of Iraq and Syria and have threatened to march on Baghdad, also listed guidelines on how veils and clothes should be worn, part of a campaign to violently impose their radical brand of Islam.

"The conditions imposed on her clothes and grooming was only to end the pretext of debauchery resulting from grooming and overdressing," said the Islamic State in a statement.

"This is not a restriction on her freedom but to prevent her from falling into humiliation and vulgarity or to be a theater for the eyes of those who are looking."

A cleric in Mosul told Reuters that Islamic State gunmen had shown up at his mosque and ordered him to read their warning on loudspeakers when worshipers gather.

"Anyone who is not committed to this duty and is motivated by glamour will be subject to accountability and severe punishment to protect society from harm and to maintain the necessities of religion and protect it from debauchery," said the Islamic State.

The insurgents, formerly called the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), have been systematically stamping out any religious or cultural influences they deem non-Islamic since their lightning sweep through the north.

US military and Iraqi security officials estimate the Islamic State has at least 3,000 fighters in Iraq, rising towards 20,000 when new recruits since last month's advance are included. The Islamic State provided guidelines on how women should dress in Mosul, one of Iraq's biggest cities. The hands and feet must be covered.

"Wear shapeless clothes that don't hug the body. No perfume." The insurgents run vice patrols in Mosul which answer to a morality committee which has shut Mosul´s college of fine arts and physical education, knocked down statues of famous poets and banned smoking and waterpipes.

Women have been told to never walk unaccompanied by a male guardian. The Islamic State even ordered shopkeepers to cover their store mannequins with full-face veils. A man was recently whipped in public for sexually harassing a woman. Islamic State militants view Iraq's majority as infidels who deserve to be killed and have told Christians to either convert to Islam, pay a religious levy or face death.

ISIS opens ‘marriage bureau’ for women looking to marry with group’s fighters

by Ahmadshah Ghanizada

July 29, 2014

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has opened a marriage bureau for single and widows to marry with the group’s fighters.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has said matchmaking service is operating from Al-Bab, in Syria’s Aleppo province.

Residents cited by the observatory group have said that the Islamic State are asking the interested parties to provide their names and addresses, “and ISIS fighters will come knocking at their door and officially ask for marriage.”

According to reports, the extremist group has expanded into tourism, taking the newly wed couples on honeymoon bus tours across Syria and Iraq.

The honeymoon bus tours are running twice a week from Raqa in Syria to Anbar n Iraq, where jihadist songs are played throughout the journey.

Large parts of the northern and eastern Syria, the Iraq-Syria border, and parts of northern and western Iraq are currently being controlled by the Islamic State, which proclaimed a “caliphate” last month straddling the two neighbouring Arab states.

Islamic State has been ccused of a number of atrocities, including mass kidnappings and killings.

In the last few years, the development of cryptography and peer-to-peer technology has created many grand potentialities concerning the overhaul of foundational institutions of society. Already, in its very early stages, the decentralization brought about by the development and improvement of these two technologies has challenged the coercive power of governments, as far as freedom of choice is concerned.

For several decades, the world’s governments have been waging a fierce and often bloody war against the consumption of drugs that these governments deem unhealthy or immoral. Central authorities have used their legislative powers to legally regulate what is and is not moral to consume, what is and is not healthy to consume. After enacting legislation they then began to use their powers of coercion and their monopoly on violence—in the form of national, state or provincial, and local law enforcement agencies—to forcefully prevent anyone from obtaining these substances. As a result, black markets have emerged and have flourished, despite government attempts to destroy them.

Decentralization technology has brought these black markets into the 21st century. With the creation of the Tor Network, or DarkNet, drug entrepreneurs gained a way of setting up online drug markets that made it much harder for law enforcement agencies to track down and dismantle. The most famous of these DarkNet markets is/was Silk Road. It operated for years without being detected by governmental authorities. The peer-to-peer nature of the DarkNet constructed a veil of shadow between the governments and the individuals who deliberately defied their mandates by buying and consuming drugs that the governments have sworn to eradicate. P2P technology and cryptography made it extremely difficult for law enforcement to not only locate Silk Road, but track down its users. It took until late 2013 for the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation to fully accomplish this feat and take down the entire Silk Road operation. But, although they managed to take down Silk Road, a myriad of other DarkNet markets sprung up from Silk Road’s ashes.

However, the P2P nature of the DarkNet is not the shining feature of these drug markets. The use of Bitcoin in these elicit exchanges truly frustrated the attempts of law enforcement to catch these drug entrepreneurs and consumers. Bitcoin is the true hero in this story because, while the Tor Network is P2P, the websites on the network are totally centralized. Once they are actually found on the DarkNet, it is only a matter of time before authorities can find the administrators and shut them down. But Bitcoin adds an extra layer of security to DarkNet market users. It is a completely decentralized, pseudonymous monetary system that, if used correctly, makes it impossible for law enforcement to trace monetary transactions back to the end users of the product being traded. With decentralized currency, the only flaw in this system is the centralized nature of the drug markets, which is being solved by completely P2P goods markets, such as OpenBazaar.

The implications of Bitcoin’s decentralized nature extend far beyond making it more difficult for cops to catch drug dealers and users, however. Bitcoin can alter the way governments work on a fundamental level; additionally, P2P technology can change the definition of a government even further.

We all know of the monopoly governments have on the control of money. Their central banks have the sole authority to create money from thin air and pump it into the economy. With this power, central banks have created devastating business cycles and have enriched a select few at the expense of the population at large. Governments will likely never willingly give up this power that they wield over the issuance of money. For the control of a nation’s currency is a government’s ultimate source of power. With it they can fund massive welfare states to keep citizens complacent, they can fund their war machines so that they are able to wage endless wars over land and natural resources, and they can militarize local police agencies so that they are able to ruthlessly stamp out any substantial political dissent.

Bitcoin has the potential to directly challenge this oppressive power over money, however. Having a decentralized monetary system that works as well as Bitcoin, even in its very imperfect stage, creates the possibility of kicking the legs out from under the governments’ monetary monopolies. As Bitcoin becomes more developed and the core protocol is modified to fix flaws in the system, that possibility could become a stark reality. Not only would the wide adoption of Bitcoin remove the power of the world’s governments to endlessly print money, but Bitcoin’s pseudonymous nature can make it impossible to track down an individual for taxation. Yes, if its full potential is ever realized, Bitcoin could overthrow the government system of compulsory taxation. With no ability to create money from thin air and no revenue stream from taxes, the governments of the world would go completely broke. Unless, that is, people fund the governments voluntarily. However, relying on voluntary contributions would mean that the governments would actually have to provide valuable services that satisfy market demand. Therefore, in this Bitcoin fueled world, governments would become nothing more than private companies on a free market competing for profit. If people disliked the services one particular government—or now it should be called a business—they could lend their patronage to another company or firm and put the unsatisfactory one out of business. No longer would governments be this massive, publicly funded engine of corruption and violence.

But that story is old news, every Bitcoin enthusiast knows of this potentiality. Now, as if the revolutionary possibilities for Bitcoin weren’t enough, P2P technology is being used to create an entirely decentralized world.

Ethereum is a new crypto-currency—if it could even be called that, the possibilities surrounding it make it so much more than a monetary system—that operates off of what are known as “smart contracts.” Ethereum differs from most crypto 2.0 systems in that its smart contracts are not predefined, they are only limited by what the users of the system can imagine. The obvious possibilities for Ethereum are things like financial contracts for software development, the production of goods and services, and anything else that goes on in the traditional business world today. However, there is no reason why Ethereum cannot be used to create “smart” social contracts, the basic frameworks of societies.

Imagine if this system were integrated with Bitcoin and made into an even more complex system of smart contracts and decentralized verification. Gavin Andresen has already imagined such a thing, and he’s called it “Bit-thereum.” This system would use several, randomly selected “Oracles” to verify contracts or adjudicate disputes, while a reputation tracking system would monitor the quality of the Oracles; if one has a bad reputation, individuals could simply refuse to interact with them. Just think about the implications this has for governance! Decentralized currency could make governments more trustworthy because it subjects them to competition, but decentralization on this level would make entire societies completely trustless and peer-to-peer.

If the possibilities of technologies like Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Bit-thereum are ever fully realized, government as we know it would cease to exist. People would no longer be able to use the violent power of government to force people to live a certain way. Morality would no longer be instituted at gunpoint and the freedom of individuals to choose what to put into their bodies would not even be a question. People would live and work together only if it were mutually beneficial, and a system of private courts and dispute resolution organizations could be constructed in an entirely decentralized and trustless way. Without governments and central banks around to manipulate the money supply so that capital is redirected to unprofitable—but desired by special interests—enterprises, the free market would be able to take its course and exponentially increase the standard of living for the entire world. Obviously, this system would have its flaws, it would not usher in some utopian society. However, it would make our world much freer and more voluntary than it is in its current state.

The "Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant" (ISIL) has killed Mosul University law professor Mahmoud al-Asali for defending Mosul's Christian residents, the Ninawa tribal council said Thursday (July 24th).

Al-Asali, who held a doctoral degree in international law, was killed after he objected ISIL's eviction of Christian families from Mosul and requested a debate with the group to discuss their wrong behaviours, the council said.

"ISIL elements took al-Asali from his home hours after he called on people to revolt against ISIL, and his body was later found in a side street in the westernmost area of Mosul," said Ninawa tribal council deputy head Ibrahim al-Hassan.

Obama Caught Selling Cigarettes To Underage Teens

by "Amanda Scriven"

As originally posted on: National Report
July 22, 2014

<National Report> It’s just another case of United States President Barack Obama breaking his own rules. The chief was reportedly caught selling cigarettes to minors during his early July 2014 visit to Colorado. Miranda Slater, the mom of fifteen-year old James, says she was initially furious when she discovered her son had purchased tobacco from the president.

“No son of mine is going to smoke cigarettes,” The Denver native said. “But to find out James bought them from Barack Obama? No way. I was mad, yes, that he had cigarettes. What mom wouldn’t be? At first I didn’t believe him. Kids will say anything to get out of trouble. I took the pack away from him, only to find a presidential thank you note, with Barack’s signature, tucked inside. Unbelievable.”

Slater says she then put a call into the White House to get the full story on how her son managed to get cigarettes from the president. After several unsuccessful attempts to contact White House staff, she called us, at National Report, to get her story out. From what we know, Obama sold at least 50 packs of cigarettes to Colorado minors, at an astonishing price of $20.00 each; double the average price per pack in the nation.

While we don’t know what Obama was trying to accomplish from distributing cigarettes to Colorado teenagers, we can assume it was not for the money. He made a profit of approximately $1,000.00 from his cigarette sales, however, knowing the man has an estimated net worth of ten million dollars, we can assume he is not destitute to the point where he would have to line his own pockets.

Obama himself is an avid smoker, though according to First Lady Michelle Obama, he quit smoking in 2010, two years after he took office. His attempts at quitting took several months, and it has been reported that he even tried nicotine replacement therapy to aid in his attempt to quit tobacco for good. The chief has been seen smoking on numerous occasions since 2010.

If prosecuted, Obama will likely only receive a slap on the wrist. Colorado State law depicts that any person who sells tobacco products to a minor under the age of eighteen commits a Class 2 Petty Offense, and with conviction of the crime, is punishable to a fine of up to two hundred dollars. Any minor under the age of eighteen caught illegally purchasing tobacco products is also considered to have committed a Class 2 Petty Offense, and upon conviction, is punishable to a fine of up to one hundred dollars.

Syria becoming home to two competing Islamic states

by Serene Assir

July 25, 2014

Beirut (AFP) - A new power struggle has emerged within the Syrian rebellion after Al-Qaeda announced it aims to create an Islamic "emirate" to compete with rival jihadist group, the Islamic State (IS).

As with IS in its early days, when it was still known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, Al-Qaeda affiliate the Al-Nusra Front is spreading its zone of influence, taking over strategically located villages, and competing with other rebel groups.

On July 11, an audio recording attributed to Al-Nusra's chief Abu Mohammad al-Jolani was distributed via YouTube, in which he announced the group's intention to establish an Islamic "emirate".

"The time has come, O loved ones, to create an emirate in the Levant," Jolani said, adding that its borders will be with "the regime, those who exaggerate (the Islamic State), the corrupt ones (the rebels)," and the Kurds.

The audio recording emerged two weeks after IS proclaimed an Islamic "caliphate" straddling Syria and Iraq.

Days later, for the first time in Syria's war, battles erupted between Al-Nusra and their rebel allies from a patchwork of opposition groups.

The first major fight was in the Jisr al-Shughur area of Idlib province, near the northwestern border with Turkey, in which dozens of fighters on both sides died, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Al-Nusra and rebels have also since fought each other in Daraa province in the south, and Aleppo in the north.

Activists say the change is in part due to the fact that Al-Nusra has been significantly weakened in recent months by the fighting against IS and is now seeking to extend its influence once more.

- Openly at war -

IS and Al-Nusra, who both have thousands of fighters in their ranks, are rooted in Al-Qaeda in Iraq but the latter has since split with the global terror network and faced criticism from its head Ayman al-Zawahiri.

The two groups have been openly at war with each other in Syria since early this year.

In eastern Syria's oil-rich Deir Ezzor, IS won the battle, killing hundreds of Al-Nusra fighters and forcing those who survived either to flee or to submit.

According to Abu Yasmin, a rebel in Idlib province in Syria's northwest, "Al-Nusra is going through a real crisis. Its announcement that it wants an emirate is a way to draw new jihadists into its ranks. On the ground, it is pushing to create an emirate exclusively under its control."

Al-Nusra first emerged in Syria's war at the end of 2011 -- a year and a half before IS appeared on the scene.

Unlike IS, Al-Nusra integrated well into the Syrian rebellion, and claimed responsibility for major attacks on regime positions.

But some opposition fighters are now changing their view of Al-Nusra, and are even preparing to fight it.

Earlier this week, a group of moderate rebel groups -- including Western-supported Hazem and the Syrian Revolutionaries Front -- published a stinging statement, vowing not to cooperate with Al-Nusra.

- 'Showing its true face' -

Part of the backlash reflects a rising rejection of jihadism, as a whole, among rebel ranks.

Abu Yasmin told AFP via the Internet that Al-Nusra's tactics "are about power, not about Islam. We Syrians don't need anyone to teach us Islam."

According to Rami Abdel Rahman, director of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, Al-Nusra has been pushing for exclusive control in several border areas in Idlib and Aleppo province near Turkey, and Daraa province near Jordan.

"This is exactly how IS started out," said Abdel Rahman. "First it took control, then it announced its caliphate. We are seeing this happen again, with Al-Nusra Front."

Abdel Rahman also told AFP that, like IS, Al-Nusra is starting to go it alone, cutting its ties with joint rebel Islamic courts that act as the de facto authority in opposition-held areas.

Al-Nusra and its Islamist rebel sympathisers, for their part, claim to be waging a campaign against "corrupt" rebel groups with questionable reputations.

"Remember, IS used to do just the same, singling out small groups and fighting them, in order to gain popular support at first while legitimising its spread of influence," said Abdel Rahman.

The key difference, said a rebel officer who spoke to AFP on condition of anonymity, between IS and Al-Nusra is the latter has so far done a far better job at integrating than IS ever did.

"But now Al-Nusra is starting to show its true face. Its goals are not freedom and democracy. It wants control and sectarianism. And that's not what our revolution is about," said the officer.

The debate on whether or not average citizens should be allowed to own guns has raged on for many years. People on the far left believe that no one, other than government agents, should have any guns, ever, for any reason. They say that, if the government takes away the guns from all people, while keeping guns for themselves, the government can deter all crime and usher in a never-ending era of peace in which no violence exists. People on the far right believe that any individual should have the right to purchase and own whatever kind of weapons they want for whatever reasons. This right would include the ability to own tanks, rocket launchers, and even nuclear weapons. They claim that if every individual were armed to the teeth, society would reach a completely peaceful state due to the omnipresence of mutually assured destruction– the guarantee that any party engaged in physical conflict will be completely annihilated. The majority of people, in the United States at least, fall somewhere in the middle of these two extremes. They believe the people have a right to purchase and possess firearms in order to defend themselves from anyone who attempts to harm them. But, this right must be exercised within reason; background checks, limits on what kinds of guns people can have, and mandatory registration– at least on the state level– are needed to make sure that guns don’t get into the hands of people with malicious intent.

Regardless of where one stands on the left-right political spectrum concerning gun control, we can see that, historically, governments have always overstepped their bounds when given the power of enacting restrictive legislation on guns, or anything for that matter. If the people give the government the power to make small restrictions regarding what types of guns people can own, or who can own any guns, there is a very high likelihood that the government will attempt to incrementally, or immediately, expand their gun control regulations so that they are completely illegal to own for any reason. Sometimes governments get lucky, there is a mass shooting that garners the attention of the national media, which will produce so much fear in the hearts of the citizens that they beg the government to take their guns away. In some cases it only takes one incident for the people to completely give up their right to own guns, like in Australia with the Port Arthur Massacre. In other countries, guns are incrementally removed from the hands of the citizens through the passage of multiple laws over an extended period of time, such as the cases of the United States and the United Kingdom.

The dangers of such extreme gun control are evident, no matter how hard those on the far left try to stretch statistics and the rules of logic. They may try to tell you that governments don’t violently oppress a disarmed populous, but that is simply not true. Historically, governments have disarmed the people and violently oppressed them. Nothing about the nature or structure of arbitrary government rule has changed that would make it impossible for governments to do such things. Being unarmed by your government puts you at great risk. Suppose the government does go rouge, it imposes tyrannical laws and rounds up and slaughters any who disobey, and you have no weapons with which to defend yourself from such tyranny. What can you do?

That possibility is precisely why the ownership of guns is a necessity. Politics aside, the potential for government corruption and tyranny is real, and possessing a means of combating that tyranny– apart from the government-controlled voting system– is essential to defending basic human liberties. This essential protection provided by firearms is exactly why tyrannical governments try to disarm their citizens. They don’t want to work for their totalitarian control. Until now, governments have been extremely successful at taking away the people’s guns. The battle for ownership of firearms has been a battle of force against force, guns against guns. So of course the government has always won, they simply have more guns.

But the emergence of a new technology, 3D printing, has forever changed the ways in which individuals can use guns to defend themselves from tyranny. Cody Wilson and his company, Defense Distributed, took the fairly new 3D printing technology, which was being used mainly for fun novelty items, and printed deadly weapons. Although the official mission statement of Defense Distributed is to ensure the protection of the Second Amendment, an amendment to the US Constitution that guarantees Americans the right to possess firearms, this stunning innovation in weapons technology has forever changed the struggle between individuals and governments over the control of weapons. To date, Defense Distributed has developed a fully plastic, printable, and durable AR-15 lower-receiver, high capacity AR-15 magazines, and the highly controversial Liberator pistol. Because Cody Wilson distributed the 3D printer files for his products on the Internet for free, no government can ever put a stop to the 3D printed gun technology.

As the development 3D printed gun technology progresses, and produces higher quality firearms, government gun control will become increasingly irrelevant. It isn’t a stretch to imagine a world in which files for fully printed assault rifles, made entirely of durable plastic– making it cheap to print and undetectable by metal detectors– are stored on the Deep Web and distributed through DarkNet Markets. Protected by the cryptographic technology of the DarkNet, and the simple nature of digital files in general, it will become impossible for governments to eradicate guns. Every human being with access to a 3D printer, which will become widely available as demand lowers the prices, will be able to create an extremely effective and affordable weapon that they can use to defend themselves. Regardless of political ideologies concerning civil liberties and natural rights, whether one agrees with gun control or not, dirt-cheap guns are now available on the Internet and nothing can be done to stop it.

Highly efficient, fully printed guns, distributed to individuals on DarkNet markets will most definitely undermine the world governments’ monopolies on violence. If this technology is fully realized and becomes widely available to the general public, the debate on gun control will be decided. The decision won’t come as a result of a loss or victory in a political debate, however. Real world action on the part of entrepreneurs will end the debate by brute force. Whether or not this essentially unlimited access to guns will prove to be a net positive or negative remains to be seen. One thing is certain, however, the technology has been distributed on decentralized networks, and it isn’t going anywhere, ever.

Iraqis: Jihadis destroy ancient mosque in Mosul

by Qassim Abdul-Zahra and Sameer N. Yacoub

July 24, 2014

BAGHDAD (AP) — Islamic extremist militants blew up a revered Muslim shrine traditionally said to be the burial place of the Prophet Jonah in Iraq's second-largest city, Mosul, on Thursday, residents of the city said.

The residents said the Islamic State militants, who overran Mosul in June and imposed their harsh interpretation of Islamic law on the city, first ordered everyone out of the Mosque of the Prophet Younis, or Jonah, then blew it up.

The mosque was built on an archaeological site dating back to 8th century BC and is said to be the burial place of the prophet, who in stories from both the Bible and Quran is swallowed by a whale.

It was renovated in the 1990's under Iraq's late dictator Saddam Hussein and until the recent militant blitz that engulfed Mosul, remained a popular destination for religious pilgrims from around the world.

Several nearby houses were also damaged by the blast, said the residents, speaking on condition of anonymity because they feared for their own safety.

The residents told The Associated Press that the militants claimed the mosque had become a place for apostasy, not prayer. The extremists also blew up another mosque nearby on Thursday, Imam Aoun Bin al-Hassan mosque, they said.

The attack came hours after Iraqi lawmakers elected veteran Kurdish politician Fouad Massoum as the nation's new president, as they struggle to form a new government amid the militant blitz that has engulfed much of northern and western Iraq.

Iraq is facing its worst crisis since the 2011 withdrawal of U.S. troops amid the blitz offensive last month by al-Qaida breakaway Islamic State group that captured large swaths of land in the country's west and north, including Iraq's second largest city of Mosul. The militants have also seized a huge chunk of territory straddling the Iraq-Syria border, and have declared a self-styled caliphate in the territory they control.

Iraq's 'Islamic State' is quite happy to rule by terror

The Islamic State's game plan is to use massive doses of savagery and terror to get what it wants in Iraq. So far, it's working.

For the Islamic State, the jihadi group based in Iraq and Syria that has seized major cities and towns in northern and central Iraq in recent months, slaughter and the fear of slaughter are the coin of the realm. And so far, it's working.

Murder is their answer to anyone who doesn't share their twisted vision of their faith. They brand as apostates and worthy of slaughter fellow Sunni Arabs who are uncomfortable with beheadings and torture for breaches of the group's version of Islamic law. The reserve special hatred for Shiite Muslims, promising their own version of the Final Solution for them. And in areas under the control of IS (known as ISIS until recently), Christians were given a simple choice last Thursday: Pay a fortune in protection money, convert, or die.

That same demand has been made of other faith minorities in northern Iraq. And to show they mean business, the militants have been scrawling the Arabic letter "N" for "nasrani," a pejorative for "Christian," on the homes of the people they're determined to wipe out. How successful has their terror campaign been?

Since June, more than 408,000 Iraqis have been displaced – the same number of people who fled their homes in the first five months of the year. Almost all of the recent victims have been a result of the IS-led offensive in Nineveh and Saladin provinces. The people displaced in the first five months of the year were mostly from Anbar Province. That is where IS and its local allies began their offensive before expanding it in the north, bolstered by their fighters pouring across the border from Syria, where they've been both fighting the government of Bashar al-Assad and other rebel groups.

“Being a Turkman, a Shabak, a Yazidi, or a Christian in ISIS territory can cost you your livelihood, your liberty, or even your life," Human Rights Watch's Middle East Director Sarah Leah Whitson said in a statement.

ISIS, which formed in April 2013 and on June 30 changed its name to Islamic State, has captured broad swaths of Syria and Iraq and claims that it is establishing a caliphate in the region. It is the latest of several armed extremist Sunni groups to have systematically killed and threatened Iraq’s Chaldo-Assyrian Christians, Shia Shabaks and Turkmen, and Yazidis, labeling them crusaders, heretics, and devil-worshipers, respectively.

Iraq’s Christians are Assyrians, known as the Church of the East, or Chaldeans, an Eastern rite of the Catholic Church that broke away from the Assyrians. Yazidis, ethnically linked to Kurds, practice a 4,000-year-old religion that centers on the Peacock Angel. Shabaks have ethnic ties to Kurds, Turks, and Persians; the majority are Shia and the rest are Sunni. A majority of Turkmen, of Turkic ethnicity, are Sunni, and the rest are Shia.

These religious minority groups, concentrated in the Nineveh Plains surrounding Mosul, have been historically marginalized. Many of their communities are now flashpoints in the ISIS battle against Iraqi government forces. ISIS and its extremist Sunni precursors have largely targeted Shabaks and Turkmen who are Shia, not Sunni.

This is all driven by the jihadis' ideology, and should hardly come as a surprise. In their version of Islam, the best that Christians can hope for is to be treated as second-class citizens. But the ultimate objective is to wipe them out, along with all others who stand up to them.

Consider how the militants handled the town of al-Alam, southeast of Mosul. Local militias had put up a spirited resistance to the jihadis in June. As Reuters tells it, the movement came up with a brutal solution to the problem.

They kidnapped 30 local families and rang up the town's most influential citizens with a simple message about the hostages: "You know their destiny if you don't let us take over the town." Within hours, tribesmen and local leaders caved in to save the families. The black flag of the Sunni militants, who are bent on overthrowing the Shi'ite-led Iraqi government, was soon flying over government buildings and police stations in al-Alam.

Weeks later, only a few masked gunmen guard checkpoints surrounding al-Alam at night, so comfortable is the Islamic State in its control through fear. "One hundred percent of people are angry that the Islamic State is here but there is nothing we can do," said a scared resident who spoke by telephone on condition of anonymity.

The near-total destruction of Iraq's ancient Christian community, almost as old as the faith itself and with some branches using Aramiac (the language of Jesus) for their liturgy, is not new. The US-led invasion of Iraq unleashed perhaps the greatest challenge to the faith in Mesopotamia for centuries. In the brutal civil war that broke out in the country soon after, minorities of all kinds were targeted, and most estimates are that a pre-war Iraqi Christian population of about 1.5 million people was cut in half by 2009, with targeted assassinations on Christian leaders and terrorist attacks on churches leading to a mass exodus from the country.

Three years ago, Iraqi-American Christians warned that in a letter to Vice President Joe Biden that the situation was due to get worse. The response was not encouraging.

"Basically, we got a letter back saying: Iraq is undergoing a great democratic process and we should take advantage of that," Robert Dekeileta, a lawyer who volunteers with the Chaldean Assyrian Syriac Council of America, said at the time. "It doesn't take into account that democracy for us is a little bit frightening because a lot of forces in society are opposed to non-Islamic entities like ours."

Democracy is the furthest thing from the minds of people living in areas under IS control at the moment. In Mosul – Iraq's third-largest city and now under the group's control – the Christians are all gone. In 2003, the city was home to about 40,000 Christians. By 2009, their numbers had dwindled to a few thousand. Since last Thursday, the remaining Christians fled.

The horrific reality of the jihadis vision of a "caliphate" couldn't be more clear – and that's one reason they'll probably ultimately fail. While Iraqis are terrified of IS for now, the IS brand of systematic brutality is likely to ultimately see the Iraqi Sunni Arab community it claims to protect and support turn on it, much as Sunni Arab Iraqis turned on its previous incarnation a few years ago.

Many of their battlefield successes have been driven by Sunnis who hate the Shiite-led government in Baghdad and served in Saddam Hussein's old Iraqi army. These Iraqis aren't interested in being under the thumb of an Al Qaeda-style group and are likely to turn on their erstwhile allies as they find IS is more of an enemy to their way of life and beliefs than Iraq's Shiite majority.

But in the meantime, the rights abuses of IS are certain to pile up. And when it's over, a 2,000-year-old Christian community will probably be gone for good.
