War on Evil

An actor/director has more courage than the US President, Senate and House.  She is more bold than the kings in Islamic-dominated nations.   She is compassionate towards the abused.

Angelina Jolie visits a Syrian and Iraqi refugee camp in the southern Turkish town of Midyat in Mardin province in June.

Thank you Angelina Jolie!

I believe this photo expresses her concern for what it right and decent.  World leaders turn their heads to look the other way.

Angelina Jolie warned on Tuesday that Islamic State was using rape as a weapon of war on a scale never seen before and called for greater action against those responsible.

Thousands of women and girls have been abducted, raped and sold into sexual slavery by Islamic State.

The most aggressive terrorist group in the world today …(is) using (rape) as a centrepoint of their terror and their way of destroying communities and families.

She told a British parliamentary committee.

She spoke about girls she had met in war zones who had been raped. This included a 13-year-old Iraqi girl whom she said was raped repeatedly along with her friends and sold for 26 pounds sterling($40).

Former British foreign secretary William Hague said the issue must be addressed by men as well as women.

These are crimes that are committed almost exclusively by men and that they happen, and have happened, for many years and go unchallenged should shame all men. Men and male world leaders have a crucial role to play in tackling this issue.

So, no world leader is stepping up to prevent the savages from pillaging.  They’ve boldly threatened for over 2 years now.  Who will defend these defenseless women and girls against this terror?

    Yes, headlines around a jet destroying an armoured vehicle using a missile, but nothing about the human cost of the depravity of those who war against all morality…
