Depends on the meaning of the word “IS”. Sounds like something from Bill Clinton trying to explain why Monica was looking for a pencil under the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office. I wish it was as innocent as that. Sadly it’s the worlds worst terrorist group gaining power and looking for name upgrade. Something real catchy…like IS! Oh, terrifying!

They’re changing their moniker from Islamic State in Syria to simply Islamic State. Sounds harmless enough, but the reason is because they’ve grown in power so much that they’re no longer bound by little old Syria. They control vast portions of Iraq as well. Actually, most of Iraq is under IS control. We have witnessed the tomb of Jonah being blasted into a cloud of dust. Yes, it was thousands of years old, but no big deal. We’ve seen rows of individuals lay on the ground to be executed. Watched as all the ground we took in our war in the Iraqi sand box dissipates like a shimmering oasis in the distance…gone.

IS is not going away. In fact, with the name change it only shows they’d like to stay. Their dream of a true Islamic Caliphate is finally a reality. A true Islamic Sharia ruled state…how cool would that be? A little slice of Mohammed’s heaven right here on earth. That is if you don’t mind a little blood in the streets.

That’s right folks, blood and lots of it. A real holy war, a true ethnic and religious cleansing kind of thing. These IS guys may suck at picking a name for themselves, but they’re pretty good at killing people. It seems that their favorite people to kill are Christians…thousands of them actually. The world has been watching the war in Gaza as the Jews deal with the terrorist jack-wagons Hamas. A bunch of stupid Hollywood superstars have been tweeting about the 1900 dead in Gaza, boo hoo…they were warned to get out. Meanwhile, these other idiots, the IS terrorists, they’ve been hitting the high score day in and day out on a new game called Kill the Christian Jihad!

Yes, it’s a head on spikes kind of slaughter. Some accounts from this week alone claim more than 2000 Christians were killed and maybe a hundred thousand or more are fleeing. When you’re presented the choice of giving up your daughters as sex slaves, converting to Islam, or choosing between beheading or crucifixion…fleeing takes on a whole new meaning. Alex, I’ll take fleeing for a thousand!

Would be nice if the world cared!

While everyone is focused on Gaza, the Mesopotamian Basin is awash in Christian blood. Birds feed on people hanging on crosses and hardly anyone cares. And behold a pale horse…we may not care right now…doesn’t school start next week? But we will care when this finally comes to the light and thousands of Christians are dead.

Yay…go team Islam! I’d be so proud to be a Muslim. Where are all the so-called moderate Muslims screaming at the top of their lungs…these IS guys are not like us! They’re evil and crazy! Waiting…waiting….crickets. Thanks moderate Muslims…you’re silence speaks louder than words.

Will anyone stop ISIS or IS or whatever they call themselves from their murderous dreams of a Muslim-only world? Doesn’t look like it. Yesterday, President Obama seemed to finally notice that pesky place that the Bushes are obsessed with called Iraq and the little genocide problem I’ve been talking about. He dominated the scene when he sent two warplanes on a bombing run. That should do it. All good. That should fix it up. We’re done.

We are watching the rise of the Islamic Empire built on blood. Great job, Ishmaels’ boys are angry.

Did you hear, along with their new name they have a new slogan?

Convert or die!

How do you like it? Coming soon to every country near you. Learn to shoot. Decide if you’re a Christian or not, because someday someone might put a gun to your head ask you something like…do you believe in JC or not? Your answer will kind of be a rubber meets the road moment.

That’s what’s happening in a land far far away…don’t worry about it…nothing to see over there…it’ll never bother us. Keep dreaming.

Doug ‘The Big Dawg’ Giles reviews Mercy Shot: “Mercy Shot is a riveting, modern tale of the twisted and insidious war that’s being waged against our Second Amendment rights. S.C. Sherman does a great job of forecasting in this timely tome of how things could possibly go down. My advice is to a.) Read this book and b.) Buy a stack of guns and ammo, pretty damn quick.
