Heaven and hell

My late mother-in-law had a saying about hell: "Hell is here, on earth!" 

It certainly must feel like that for the thousands of minority Yazidis, Christians, Turkmen and Shabak Shias in Iraq, driven from lands they have lived in for several thousand years by Islamic State jihadists who, in addition to their regular atrocities of beheadings and crucifixion, are reported to have buried alive women and children in mass graves in the name of Allah! Read here and here.  

Undeterred by the threat of foreign intervention because of a belief that "Allah is with us and our promise is heaven" the speedy death of these jihadists must be a blessing for all, not least for themselves. God's speed!
