Slaughter of Innocents: parent who filmed his daughters being sent on suicide mission is killed.

Why replay the horrific acts of parents who sent their little daughters to be blown up? Because too many in the West and elsewhere are not convinced that the ideology responsible for such an atrocity is itself an atrocity, a diabolical offshoot of another diabolical offshoot, and so-called enlightened people need to understand that naive approaches to dealing with said ideologies put the lives of many others at risk.

Replaying this kind of story is necessary to keep in the public eye the absolutely untenable nature of the ideology responsible for sending two little girls to their deaths. Any attempt by reasonable people to shy away from the responsibility to challenge and defeat such ideologies amounts to tolerance of the same. People can bring such stories to the attention of their elected representatives and keep them aware of the possibility that such horrors may be visited upon us and others in so called "safe" countries.

Too often, as recent events confirm in Germany, the security apparatus of a country is hamstrung by political correctness which, given its ability to blind its proponents to reality, is itself a dangerous ideology.

The death of innocents is the death of innocence.

"You won't be scared, because you're going to God, isn't that right?" the al-Qaeda linked father asks his daughters Syrian Observatory of Human Rights.
A Jabhat Fatah al-Sham (JFS) operative has been killed in Damascus just weeks after he filmed his daughters talking to him about being part of a suicide bombing.
Abu Nimr, also known as Abdurrahman Shadad, was shot and fatally injured by "unknown militiamen", thought to be members of JFS, according to the Syrian Observatory of Human Rights (SOHR).
In two videos, Nimr, a well-known member of JFS, the newly adopted name of al-Nusra, or al-Qaeda in Syria, filmed his wife saying goodbye to eight-year-old Fatimah and seven-year-old Islam.
The footage showed Nimr talking to his two daughters, asking them: "You want to surrender so that you're raped and killed by the infidels? You want to kill them, no? We're a glorious religion, not a religion of humiliation, isn't that so darling?"
The video emerged after Nimr booby-trapped his oldest daughter and detonated her in al-Midan police station in Damascus.
The SOHR reported that JFS had assassinated Nimr, despite him working for them. The motive behind the killing was not known.

We are not just material beings, but spiritual persons with a need for meaning, purpose, and fulfillment that transcends the visible confines of this world. This longing for transcendence is a longing for truth, goodness, and beauty. Truth, goodness, and beauty are called the transcendentals of being, because they are aspects of being. Everything in existence has these transcendentals to some extent. God, of course, as the source of all truth, goodness, and beauty, has these transcendentals to an infinite degree. Oftentimes, He draws us to Himself primarily through one of these transcendentals. St. Augustine, who was drawn to beauty in all its creaturely forms, found the ultimate beauty he was seeking in God, his creator, the beauty “ever ancient, ever new.”―Sister Gabriella Yi, O.P.
