New Islamic Caliphate Leads to Piles of Garbage and Hepatitis - Daniel Greenfield

by Daniel Greenfield

Hepatitis is spreading, and flour is becoming scarce, he said. “Life in the city is nearly dead, and it is as though we are living in a giant prison,” he said.


ISIS really is bringing back the old Islamic way of life. There on the right is the undrinkable water. On the left are beheadings. Next to you are the piles of garbage. And its friendly murderous inhabitants all have hepatitis.

It’s just like the Islamic paradise, crawling with suicide bombers and rivers of all sorts of things you don’t want to step in.
In the Iraqi city of Mosul, the water has become undrinkable because supplies of chlorine have dried up, said a journalist living there, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to protect his safety. Hepatitis is spreading, and flour is becoming scarce, he said. “Life in the city is nearly dead, and it is as though we are living in a giant prison,” he said.
That’s Islam. A giant prison that hates human life.
A trumpeted Islamic State currency has not materialized, nor have the passports the group promised. Schools barely function, doctors are few, and disease is on the rise.
So Islamic states work about as well as Communism. Let’s hope Obama can reach out to the Caliph and end this embargo.
In the Syrian city of Raqqa, the group’s self-styled capital, water and electricity are available for no more than three or four hours a day, garbage piles up uncollected, and the city’s poor scavenge for scraps on streets crowded with sellers hawking anything they can find, residents say.
Three, four hours is more electricity than Mohammed had. If ISIS truly is sincere, it will get rid of all the electricity as an innovation.
When electricity workers raced to repair cables damaged by government shelling in the town of Deir al-Zour, the Islamic State detained and lashed them for violating a prohibition on working during prayer time, said the Deir al-Zour activist.
That’s a start.
Videos filmed in secret by an activist group show desperate women and children clamoring for handouts of food, while photographs posted on the Internet portray foreign militants eating lavish spreads
Much like the early days of the USSR. The  Communists just shot the women and children with the approval of Western liberals who also visited and chowed down on the lavish spreads while orphans were being shot.

Maybe ISIS will be more merciful to the beggar children than leftists were.
There is no indication that the Islamic State’s income, estimated at $12 million a month, is suffering. Syrians continue to sign up because there are no other jobs available, residents say.
Just like leftist governments everywhere.
