In the Nov. 16 Associated Press article on the bombing by French military planes of Raqqa, Syria, the Islamic State group’s de facto capital, the group was quoted as saying that it attacked Paris because it abhors the city as “the capital of prostitution and obscenity.”

This from the ogres who make no secret of making their captives sex slaves (women, girls, even boys) — often selling this “infidel property” at auction — and whose ultimate aim is the winning of an afterlife of everlasting sex with 72 virgins apiece.

Raqqa: capital of human rights abuses and magnet for fools seeking a macho paradise.
