The United States has been clobbering ISIS in the Middle East, but pockets remain, both there and elsewhere — and there’s just no end to the horrors.
That was made painfully clear this week when a Nigerian ISIS branch released a video showing its execution of 11 Christians on Christmas Day, 10 of them beheaded.
“This is a message to Christians all over the world,” a militant declared, saying the massacre was revenge for the October deaths in Syria of ISIS leaders Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and Abul-Hasan al-Muhajir during US special forces operations.
On Christmas Eve, jihadis from Boko Haram killed seven people in a Nigerian Christian village. Earlier this month, the Nigerian ISIS branch murdered 71 soldiers at a camp in Niger.
