NEW VIDEO: ISIS Fighters Destroy Ancient Artifacts in Iraqi Museum
We saw new video (below) this morning on "America's Newsroom" of ISIS terrorists destroying ancient artifacts in the Iraqi city of Mosul.
Conor Powell reported that this is yet another attempt by ISIS to destroy Iraq and Syria's cultural history. Some of the artifacts dated back to the 7th and 8th centuries.
He said this sort of destruction is increasing in both countries.
Powell said fighting has intensified in northeast Syria between ISIS and Kurdish pershmerga fighters.
This comes after activists reported that 90 Christians, including women and children, were kidnapped by ISIS in Syria. Powell said activist groups now report those numbers may be as high as 200.
Bill Hemmer discussed the dire situation with Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy.
Jasser said ISIS represents a "cancer" that is spreading throughout the Middle East and the world is using a "whack-a-mole" strategy to combat them.
"It's like ignoring the Mein Kampf of the Nazis. They've identified what they've been doing for the last year. There have been 125,000 Christians displaced in the last year alone. ... The genocide and atrocities are gonna continue," he said.
Watch his analysis above.
