Islamic State (Part 1 of 2): The Armenian Genocide

In order to understand the "new Caliphate" declared by the Islamic State in 2014, we need to understand the old Caliphate - the Ottoman Caliphate. In 1915, after the start of World War I, the Ottoman Turks began slaughtering Armenian Christians living in the Caliphate. They put them on death marches into the desert. They shot them at mass graves. They beheaded them, putting their heads on poles. They kidnapped their children and put them into slavery. They raped children. This is all documented and is not myth, conspiracy, or a lie; this is history. It really happened. And now, the Islamic State wants to bring back the Caliphate, using these same terrorist and horrific acts - which we will demonstrate in part 2. Stay tuned; part 2 will also include links to ways you can help those being tortured, slaughtered and/or raped at the hands of ISIS.
