#ISIS is broke, and only accepting payments in US dollars 

BEIRUT — Faced with a cash shortage in its so-called caliphate, the Islamic State group has slashed salaries across the region, asked Raqqa residents to pay utility bills in black market American dollars, and is now releasing detainees for a price of $500 a person.The extremists who once bragged about minting their own currency are having a hard time meeting expenses, thanks to coalition airstrikes and other measures that have drained millions from their finances since last fall. Having built up loyalty among militants with good salaries and honeymoon and baby bonuses, the group has stopped providing even the smaller perks: free energy drinks and Snickers bars.

  1. I’m doing a pre-release review of “Answering Jihad” by Ex-Muslim Nabeel Qureshi.
    Islam is ultimately what the Quran says. Virtually all Muslims must acknowledge that. The problem is that Islam is both good verses and bad verses and Muslims select what they want Islam to be and overlook the conflicting truth claims. This is because Muhammad was both extremes. Loving in Medina until he was persecuted. Then 86 raids, some provoked and some unprovoked, while in Mecca over his last nine years of his 23 total years as Islam’s founder.
    Is Islam a religion of peace or a religion of violence? Sadly, it is both. And that is why Muslims are fleeing Muslims and seeking refuge from predominantly Christian countries.
