ERBIL, Kurdistan Region—The Islamic State (ISIS) executed two former female candidates for the Iraqi parliament in the Faisalya area in central Mosul on Tuesday, a top Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) official in the area said.

“ISIS gunmen executed two former female candidates in Mosul after the Sharia Court issued death sentence on them,” said Saad Mamuzin the head of the KDP's Mosul branch.

“One of the candidates was Ibtisam Ali Jarjis on the Watanya list, and the second one was Miran Ghazi a candidate for Arab List,” he added.

Both women ran in Iraq’s parliamentary elections last April.

According to the KDP official, the two candidates had repented in one of the ISIS mosques in Mosul to spare their lives three months ago, but the Islamic judge overruled their repentance and the two women were arrested about three weeks ago.

What do you expect from the savager? they rule by the Sharia law which is put in place by the Mohamed 1400 years ago. It is law of the Bedouin who are desert dwellers and they have nothing to do with the love, mercy or the civilization. The Muslims call themselves people of the book, what they don't know is? Koran (Koan) is written at the city of Damascus 300 years later after the Mohamed death, by the Muawiya paid Manichean Priests against the Hebrew's Torah and Christians Bible, which is also written 350 years after the death of Jesus, at the city of Nicaea (today's city of Iznik) in Turkey. All those people who believes these books and call themselves the people of the book, they killed most of the humans with their savage wars, cast more bloodshed and destruction of the nature more then anybody else in the history of the World. And they did commit these crimes for the name of the God, can you imagine that? but what they didn't now is? all those books were and are tainted, because all those books are writing by the man and have nothing to do with the God which is the ultimate DIVINE LOVE.

And now you pace upon the mountains overhead, your divine faces hidden amid a crowd of stars. Requiescat in pace.

For Turkey only Kurds that accept to be 3rd. class citizens are brothers, all others are enemies.
