quote [ As Islamic State militants advanced in the Syrian province of Deir al-Zor last month, those who had held out against them faced a simple choice: beg for mercy or face certain death... Hundreds of members of the Sheitaat clan have been executed after their tribe refused to submit to Islamic State... Islamic State has declared that no truce is possible with the Sheitaat, that its prisoners can be killed, and its women are unfit for marriage, according to the Observatory. ]
In other news, these scumbags capture a whole air base.
Thumb is not from current slaughter, it's old.

quote [ An Egyptian preacher made headlines on social media after he issued a controversial fatwa (religious proclamation) giving a man the right to peep on his future wife while she is showering before he marries her.
Usama al-Qawsi, a salafist preacher, confidently stated in a video that it is acceptable for a man to ?hide? while watching his wife-to-be shower as long as his intentions are ?pure.? ]
"Bring back the good old days when sex was dirty and the air was clean"? Note: safe for work post... so far.

quote [ The police department announced that Kajieme Powell?the 25-year-old involved in the incident?was menacing police officers with a knife. St. Louis police chief Sam Dotson said the man was charging toward officers while holding the knife in ?an overhand grip.?
... Apparently filmed on a cell phone, the video shows Powell walking erratically and demanding officers shoot him. A few seconds later, as Powell walks toward the officers, they oblige his request, firing a barrage of bullets into his crumpling body. ]
As a minimum, badly done. I suppose we will argue over the choices that the police had. Graphic but distant video will help the investigation.
Click here for it.
NSFW for graphic violence.

Islamic State posted a video on Tuesday that purported to show the beheading of Foley in revenge for U.S. air strikes in Iraq
quote [ U.S. President Barack Obama said on Wednesday the beheading of American journalist James Foley by Islamic State militants "shocked the conscience of the entire world" and he vowed the United States would do what it must to protect its citizens. ]
How isolated and desperate and delusional do these primitive violent whackoes have to be to do this? The guy was at worst neutral, at best in favor of doing away with Assad. What can they expect to gain except the virulent and unrelenting animosity of any sane person in the entire world?
I am surprised nobody else posted this for discussion. NSFW due to possible gore in responses.

quote [ Koroma, 32, a resident of the densely populated Wellington neighborhood, had been admitted to an isolation ward... "The family of the patient stormed the hospital and forcefully removed her and took her away," Tunis said. "We are searching for her." ... Cases have already been confirmed in Conakry and Monrovia, the capital cities of Guinea and Liberia. Experts say that limiting the spread of the virus in a chaotic mega-city poses added complications ]
To their credit, the local authorities are trying hard to confine it. But the spread is very creepy. Thumb is from the movie "The Murder" ("Ebola makeup"). NSFW just in case.

quote [ Iran?s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, stated on Wednesday that the only solution for the region is the destruction of Israel, and that the armed confrontation must expand beyond Gaza. ]
Oh yeah, we want these guys to have nukes.

quote [ A former L.A. schools superintendent has stepped forward to criticize a $1 billion effort to provide every student, teacher and campus administrator with a tablet or laptop computer. William J. Johnston, 87, did not object to the goal, but focused instead on using school-construction bonds to fund the project, which, so far, has involved purchasing iPads. ]
Some of the schools have broken toilets. Alternative link in extended in case of pay wall.
