I feel so very sad because of the barbarism of IS. I'm with my parents now and have been reading the newspaper they get. Archaeological sites and museums in the area IS occupies are ravaged, for the fourth time a person accused of homosexuality was thrown from a tall building, he survived and they stoned him to death, while dozens of people watched by and even cheered, if I remember the story well. Then there's the kidnappings and beheadings, both by IS and their cousins in Nigeria Boko Haram. I thought we left such barbarisms behind in the middle ages and the religious wars of the 17th century. Why are people doing this?
Especially the destroying of over 3000 years archaeological sides is gruesome. The people killed will be dead a hundred years from now anyway, but 3000 years from now, people in the future are deprived of the archaeological views and the insight in by then 6000 year old history by the artefacts, statues, ruins destroyed today in Ninive, Nimrud and other places in the birthplace of our civilization.
It's a pain that makes me want to quit life.
