Daesh Militant Captors ‘Didn’t Even Have the Quran,’ Says Former Hostage

Thanks to CL for a link to the font used above. The one thing we can do as fellow human beings is to embrace and promote just what a lie it is when radical militants claim it’s for their religion. This, across centuries has been proven again and again. The trappings of religion are exploited by the worst among us. Ignore their claims, the trappings they put on. Desecrate their flag. Reach out to Muslims you may know or meet. Express your understanding. I invite our Muslim members around here to add below as they may wish to further this critical distinction. Daesh is many things. Muslim? Not any more, not since their first killing.
