“Please bomb us.”
Those were the words of a girl who was kidnapped by the Islamic State and sold into slavery. This young girl managed to get to a telephone with the message, “If you know where we are please bomb us… I’m going to kill myself anyway,” she said. …”Others have killed themselves this morning. I’ve been (assaulted) 30 times and it’s not even lunchtime….Please bomb us.”
This horrific message is just a glimpse of what the Islamic State is doing to kidnapped victims including young children. They are snatched by gangs and sold into slavery. One who escaped described, “My mother started screaming and begging for mercy …But they tore us from her grasp.”
ISIS must be stopped. Pray for a plan of strategic, effective action.
