LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Set to music which features chanting in Arabic, a new video shows Islamic Caliphate terrorists herding young men, and possibly children into the back of trucks, driving them to killing fields, and shooting them en masse.

The regime shows every indication of glorifying killing in its bloodlust. In scene after scene, frightened and distressed young men are surrounded by armed Islamic Caliphate terrorists who beat and herd the men as though they were animals.

ACT NOW TO HELP US! Donations are being sent to Catholic aid organizations operating in the region.

Pop, pop, the men are shot one-by-one with pistols or with AK-47s. Their bodies are left to litter the fields. Their killers show no hesitation or reservation about what they are doing. They are killing in cold blood.

The latest video was believed to be filmed near the city of Tikrit, the place where Saddam Hussein was born.

It is speculated that the victims are former Iraqi army soldiers and Shiites who have allegedly rejected Islamic authority, according to the terrorists. The victims all appear to be young men, possibly boys in a few cases.

The Islamic Caliphate has been shockingly indiscriminate in its killing, and has slaughtered a great number of people, including children. Children are usually killed as a warning to others. Recently, images of children beheaded by the Islamic Caliphate have surfaced. Some of those children belonged to Christian families whom the Islamic Caliphate wants to force into conversion.

In fact, Islamic Caliphate officials have warned Christians that they are next, likely as soon as they mop up former Iraqi army soldiers and others they think threaten their cause. Christians have already been displaced from their homes, and some may have already been "put to the sword."

It has now been over a week since Christians were warned to convert to Islam under threat of death. Most chose instead to flee and several hundred families have managed to make the dangerous trek on foot to refugee camps in Kurdish controlled territory.

However, the majority of the region's 200,000 Christians, a community that has been in the region for nearly 2,000 years, are largely unaccounted for. These people are either huddled in their homes, which have been marked by Islamic Caliphate fighters as Christian, or they are attempting to cross the desert without food, water or shelter, hoping to flee to a refugee camp in a protected area.

This morning, hundreds of Christians protested at the UN compound in Ibril, demanding the world pay attention to what is happening and take action. Yet, the world continues to remain silent, no world leader is speaking out about the issue, no intervention is planned. All that is being done is the accommodation in camps for the swelling tide of Christians who have been forced to leave everything behind.

Nobody can explain why the world remains silent in the face of the greatest evil witnessed in possibly decades.

The world remains silent, will you?

Working their way down, each man was shot in turn. Many in the head, but sometimes they were hit in the body. Some recoiled as the bullet sliced into their bodies. Some were shot multiple times to finish the deed. Music in the video drowned out their last cries.

Terrorists finish off the killing of hundreds of men in yet another location, mercilessly shooting the last man, without regard for the fact that he may have a family or be some child's father or some mother's son. Christians are next.



Will we wait any longer? The way to fight back is to share this information with everyone and give to support those who are fleeing. Let the world know, you will not tolerate genocide. It's time to WAKE UP AND ACT!
