Amid brazen, deadly attacks, gay Syrians tell of fear of ISIS persecution

ISIS, a small group of people who fight against their own soldiers aims to own a large part of Iraq. They are willing to do almost anything to accomplish this goal. In recent news, they have been accused of the murder of a young man by pushing him to a plummeting death, all for being gay. This violence toward homosexuals, is not a new thing, but this is one of its worst moments in history. The LGBTQ are some of the least fortunate in the community and this is due to people's failure to accept something different their norm. Oftentimes this happen in their early teen stage and as the bullying and judgment worsens, so does the chances of things like depression that lead to things like suicide.

I am absolutely disgusted by the gruesome acts of ISIS. This is a very hypocritical thing to do. On multiple occasions, Syria has shown their share of disgust toward inequality. I feel like everyone should be able to walk around freely and feel safe. Firstly, no one has the right take the life of any one else. The supporter of this statement is a killer, what other lies are coming out the governments mouths? It is very odd to see the way that other countries deal with issues like this that involve inequality between each other.
