ISIS Turns Ancient Christian City of 7,000 Inhabitants Into a Ghost Town (Video)

The earth under their feet may be cursed, it yields nothing but sand and thistles, but they are nomads, forgetting agriculture, remembering only their tradecraft of murder. They become worshipers of death dreaming of the green verdant fields of paradise which they can reach only if they kill enough men, women and children.

Leaving devastation behind them, dead lands, lost cultures, widows and orphans, they claw their way up to heaven on a ladder of bones.

Everything around them dies until the only green is on their flags. They are cursed from the earth and they curse the earth. Where they go, the world dies.

ISIS tried to take the majority Christian town of Telaskof, Iraq, in 2014 but were pushed out by Kurdish Peshmerga. Now it’s a ghost town. Rani Hanna goes back every day and tells AJ+ how he’s trying to keep his town alive.
