Islamic State committing 'staggering' violations against humanity in Iraq: UN report


A United Nations report has provided new evidence of what it calls a staggering list of human rights abuses by Islamic State (IS) militants in Iraq.

It revealed systematic violations carried out since IS began its advance across Iraq in July.

The report, based on 500 interviews, provides evidence of mass executions, the kidnapping of women and girls to use as sex slaves, and the use of child soldiers.

"This report is terrifying," the UN's special representative for Iraq Nickolay Mladenov said.

The report detailed how Iraqi police officers, soldiers and journalists had been killed in a series of mass executions.

NFL continues reach for female fans through breast cancer awareness


The NFL's annual breast cancer awareness campaign, always in October, has long been the league's most substantial plan to appeal to women.

Stadiums will be awash in pink starting Thursday when the Minnesota Vikings visit the Green Bay Packers.

With the NFL under attack over its handling of players accused of domestic violence, its efforts to raise awareness toward breast cancer could fall flat; after all, the off-the-field trouble led Procter and Gamble to remove its sponsorship of the event.

"It will be harder to take it seriously, absolutely," said Anne Osborne, an associate professor of communications at Syracuse who has spent the past five years researching the NFL's female fan base. "I think even before all of this, you would hear people routinely say that they don't get the connection between football and breast cancer. It's not a natural connection. For some people it seemed like just a PR effort to acknowledge women's presence around football. Now in light of all of this, it will ring as sort of hollow."

ISIS Beheads 3 Women In Syria, School Bombed


Meanwhile, the Observatory reported Wednesday that militants of the Islamic State group beheaded nine Kurdish fighters, including three women, captured in clashes near the Syria-Turkey border.

They were captured during the heavy fighting over the northern Syrian town of Kobani, also known as Ayn Arab, the Observatory said. The chief Kurdish group fighting in Syria, known as the YPG, advocates gender equality, and women fight alongside men.

Kurdish forces have been locked in fierce clashes with Islamic State militants in and around Kobani since the extremist group launched an assault in mid-September. The fighting over Kobani has created one of the single largest exoduses in Syria's civil war, with more than 160,000 people fleeing into Turkey, the U.N. humanitarian chief Valerie Amos said Tuesday.

Woman Finds Out She's Pregnant After Breast Cancer Diagnosis


At the time of her diagnosis Rivas and her husband were investigating adoption options. Rivas was afraid to try IVF or other hormonal treatments due to cancer risks associated with higher estrogen levels.

When Rivas asked to take a pregnancy test, she thought she was just delaying dealing with her cancer diagnosis.

“A voice told me ‘You’re really in denial,” about cancer, Rivas recalled thinking at the time.

When a nurse came back after the test, she told Rivas it was likely positive but it was so early to be sure. They would have to wait another 48 hours for doctors to be completely sure.

“I left that day not knowing if I was pregnant but knowing I have breast cancer,” said Rivas.

Two days later doctors repeated the test and confirmed she was pregnant. While Rivas and her husband Luis Rivas were excited about the pregnancy, they now had to consider their options.

Isis Threat to Crucify Lebanon's Christians

Isis Threat to Crucify Lebanon's Christians as Islamic State Prepare to Cross Syria Border


The Sunni jihadists have taken over Iraq's largest Christian town of Qaraqosh causing thousands of residents to flee towards Kurdistan region.

They also issued an ultimatum to Christians in the city of Mosul to convert to their radical form of Islam or be forced to either pay a tax, leave the city or be harmed for refusal to convert.

The city is now reportedly empty of Christians as hundreds of families fled following the ultimatum of death or a historic contract ‒ known as "dhimma"‒ where non-Muslims can receive protection if they pay a fee known as a "jizya".

Go Figure !!! After 2000 years...Only 12 Jews left in Egypt.

Only 12 Jews remain in Egypt, the remnant of a community of some 100,000 that lived there until the 1950s, the community’s leader said.

“We are dying, we are drowning, we are finished,” Jewish community head Magda Haroun told the BBC in an interview broadcast on Sept. 18.

Haroun said that her “first duty is to take care of the human beings,” the remaining Jews, “the old ladies which have no family, are alone.”

“And my second duty and most important one is these things that will never die,” she said, pointing to the religious and ritual objects.

Most of Egypt’s Jews left in the 1950s and 1960s when Egypt and Israel were at war and Jews were accused of being spies.
