The Tomb of Jonah shrine before ISIS, and after.

The wildflower that has sprung up in the power vacuums created in the Syrian and Iraqi deserts has a name, and it is ISIS.

“Brothers, I call upon you in the name of humanity, rescue us!”

Iraqi_Parliament Yesterday, the Catholic Church as a whole set aside a day of prayer for the beleaguered parts of the body of Christ that are being assaulted by ISIS. If you’ve been paying any attention to the posts of The Anchoress, you’re well aware of what is going on.

But I cannot help but do it, as I served in Cairo, Egypt and Kuala Lumpur Malaysia as a Marine Security Guard (MSG) at our embassies located in those two capital cities of predominantly Muslim countries.
