Nasrallah Poses a Rhetorical Question to ISIS: Who Will You Allow to Live?

Posted on 

Hassan Nasrallah is making an important point here. What we are seeing with the rise of terror groups backed by some of the most powerful people and nations on earth is is not something heretofore witnessed in modern times. We are talking, of course, about terrorist forces who seek not only to kill virtually everyone outside of their own group, but who also harbor the goal of wiping out all vestiges of past civilizations. Certainly there are examples in history, including the world wars of the 20th century, in which cultural heritage sites were deliberately targeted by warring parties. But nothing on this scale. This shadow of darkness is unlike anything since “specific early periods of history,” as Nasrallah puts it.

By the way, today is Ashura, the day on which Shia Muslims mark the anniversary of the martyrdom of Husayn Ibn Ali and 72 of his companions at the Battle of Karbala in 680 AD. See: Millions Mark Martyrdom Anniversary of Imam Hussein Worldwide
