Left mum on mass beheading of 21 Christians, but calls Christians fighting back ‘sectarian kill squad’
Screen grab from the Islamic State video of the simultaneous beheading of 21 Christians

The Islamic State is so busy exterminating infidels that if you blink, you miss the latest human sacrifice. Just yesterday, the group released a video depicting the simultaneous beheading in Libya of 21 Coptic Christians. The onscreen narrator, described as masked and having a fluent command of English (there were also, tellingly, subtitles in Arabic), said:

All praises due to Allah, the strong and mighty. And may blessings and peace be upon the ones sent by the sword as a mercy to all the worlds. [IS has been] chopping off the heads of those that have been carrying the cross delusion for a long time [and that war will continue until Jesus comes down from the heavens] breaking the cross and killing the swine.

Shorter translation: You ain’t seen nothin’ yet.

A second headline that surfaced yesterday, this one via Reuters, noted that westerners are headed to the Iraqi theater to join the Christian militia there in an effort to beat back the Islamic State. That article prompted Vox’s Max Fisher — who as far as I can divine voiced no public reaction to the mass execution — to post this on Twitter:

Sectarian kill squads? Is this an indication of how the left intends to treat the war on terror as it becomes ineluctably clear that they and Barack Obama are mistaken in their obstinate insistence that the IS is not guided by its religious beliefs, much less Islam?
