And so the killing does not stop

Juergen Todenhoefer was allowed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria to spend some time with them. He talked about his experiences and talked a great deal of sense.
He advises that the Sunni population are flocking to ISIS as a reaction to how they have been treated. he reports that bombing by those opposed to ISIS makes little or no difference to ISIS and its fighters. He talks about religious cleansing, which is a variant of the ethnic cleansing with which we in Europe are all too familiar.
If people are oppressed we cannot be surprised when they bear long memories of their oppression and seek to oppress those who oppressed them, with even greater violence than they themselves experienced.
And so the killing does not stop and we, helpless with our bombs, stand and watch.
