ISLAMIC STATE BURNS ‘BLASPHEMOUS’ CHRISTIAN BOOKS IN MOSUL

The U.S. State Department iscurrently facing pressure to formally recognize the purge of Christians from Iraq and Syria as genocide. The Islamic State added to the mountain of evidence against it by releasing a video that shows hundreds of Christian books burned in the captive city of Mosul.

The UK Daily Mail reports the video is titled “Diwan of Education Destroys Christian Instruction Books in Mosul.”

The title refers to the Diwan al-Hisba, whose title translates to “Chamber of Morality Police.” They are essentially the enforcers of sharia law inside the Islamic State’s conquered territories, imposing “penalties ranging from flogging for minor misdemeanors like smoking to amputations and beheadings.”
