Story of two brothers who lost their hands to ISIS in Mosul

By Rudaw 11/5/2017

Azad and Mohammed were brothers once running a local market in the Taamim neighborhood of Mosul.


They are just two of many people who have had their lives destroyed by ISIS.


Accused of robbery for taking back their own merchandise which was unpaid for by an ISIS emir, unknown to them, both of the men each had one hand chopped off.

It is now possible to reattach a hand. Medical advances now allows to re-connect the nerves of the hand, but not the nerves of the eye nor the spinal cord yet.

This is Islam and one day Iraqi Kurdistan will have same system because of all islamists from there. Secular kurds should move to Rojava and islamist kurds to KRG. Islam is one way, it will eat you up from the inside. Arabs created Islam and turks became muslims, in the end arabs became slaves of turks and seeked help from infidels to become free from their own creation. Now they seek help again, dont you muslim kurds see this? Are you to stupid? This sorani muslim teacher got shot dead in Sweden yesterday, one by one Iraqi Kurds die and all of them are proud muslims, but we kuffar kurds dont die, we enjoy life. Somehing isnt right with Islam after all:
