Jenifer (Zarknorph) said:  A tranche of leaked Afghan human rights reports, translated by the ABC and backed up by witness testimonies in Afghanistan, detail claims unarmed civilians were killed by Australian soldiers.

If the British experience is anything to go by, it will be impossible to prosecute such crimes.

How do we compare with ISIS? At least their sadists are fighting for their lives and property against invasion.

And ISIS were (at least according to this account) trying to run the country in a sustainable fashion.

The Case of the Purloined Poultry: How ISIS Prosecuted Petty Crime

July 1, 2018 - TEL KAIF, Iraq — The crime scene was Stall No. 200 in a market eight miles north of Mosul, Iraq.

It was there that Zaid Imad Khalaf, 24, made a living selling chickens, scraping by next to a grocer who sold onions by the kilogram and a trader who sold flour by the scoop.

And it was there that an Islamic State soldier, one of the thousands who ruled the plains of northern Iraq, walked by and pointed to Mr. Imad's plumpest chicken. “That one,” he said.

Mr. Imad butchered the bird, plucked it, weighed it and then asked for the 8,000 dinars he was owed, around $7. That's when the problems started. “When he went to pull the money from his pocket he said that he only had 4,000 dinars and said he would pay me the rest tomorrow,” Mr. Imad recalled.

Normally, the story should have ended there, with a poor man being stiffed by a more powerful one.

And yet a week after the incident in 2016, Mr. Imad did something that might seem foolhardy when the rulers of your city have a reputation for unbridled brutality: He lodged a complaint for the missing $3.50 with the town's Islamic Police station. The next day, the Islamic State fighter hurried in to pay the amount he owed.

It was a quick, neat and efficient resolution to the pettiest of problems, one which probably would have gone unheeded before the arrival of the militants.

In a terrorist version of the “broken window” school of policing, the Islamic State aggressively prosecuted minor crimes in the communities it took over, winning points with residents who were used to having to pay bribes to secure police help.

Nearly 400 records and investigation files abandoned in one Islamic State police station and provided to The New York Times suggest that local residents turned to the group for help with the most minor problems.

There was the shopkeeper who reported a customer for failing to pay for half a bag of sugar, the homeowner who wanted compensation for a bad painting job and the man upset that an acquaintance had hit him with a shoe.

The documents show that the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, was willing — even eager — to get involved in the messy details of people's day-to-day lives, and conversely that hundreds of people trusted them to fairly resolve their issues, no matter how trivial.

... Did Case No. 167, filed by an employee of a health clinic, prompt a face-palm from the policeman who recorded it? The summary states that every day on his walk to work, the employee politely greeted a sidewalk cooking-gas vendor. Then one day, everything changed.

“When I was going to work, I said ‘Hi' to him, and he replied with ‘Hello, thief,'” the complainant wrote. “I told him: ‘Why do you call me a thief? What did I steal from you?' ” That's when the vendor started to hit him, the clinic worker claimed.

Or the man in Case No. 430, who had a disagreement with an acquaintance.

“This incident happened 20 days ago,” the victim explained, “and after that incident, every time I pass in front of him, he spits on the ground.”

He sought the help of the world's most feared terrorist group because of that grave offense.

Like every other complaint, it was neatly filled out, with a date and time, and assigned a case number, before being placed in a plastic sleeve for safekeeping.

Mindless quote of the week "How do we compare with ISIS? At least their sadists are fighting for their lives and property against invasion"

So the men and women who have left many many countries to fight for ISIL are fighting for their lives and property , does it get any more stupid?

A British ISIL man cuts the head off a Syrian Soldier in Syria and the dick head poster says ISIL is fighting for its life and property?

Being unemployed with clearly nothing much to do has affected the cretins perception of reality .

They did the same as you - left their homeland to create a religious state that tortures children and women.

Never attempted to deliver any form of justice to the natives - as ISIL appear to have intended to do and started doing before we bombed them to madness.

I live in a state where if you want a Bacon and Egg sarnie or a Guinness then you can have what ever you want

i doubt such things exist anywhere ISIL have appeared , we also have large Gay Pride in most Cities including the capital Jerusalem 
 

If you are gay in Iran you get hung , if you are gay in Saudi Arabia you lose your head, if you were Gay wherever ISIL appeared you got thrown off the roof 

As you can see our resident idiot is throwing a tizzy fit , it is a regular occurrence

Despite our many flaws Jews continue to immigrate to Israel 

It may not suit the poster who is suffering real time angst but this is the Jewish Homeland for better or worse

Amazing to think this is the 2nd time in History the Jews have returned home to their Land and their Capital Jerusalem

There is something gravely abnormal about claiming that Jews favour a nation which is being branded (with little reputable counter-argument) as unpleasant and law-breaking and apparently dishonest (eg claiming the Gaon for Zionism).

The only explanation is that you want Jews to be hated.

Yes they can.

But different Jewish people have differing opinions about it.

If you are divorced, you cannot get married again in a Catholic Church.

Many Christian priests refuse to marry same sex couples, regardless of the laws in their country.

ISIS brides have no say in who they are married off to.  They are bought and sold like livestock.

They also still have child brides.
