ISIS is doing wrong by killing those with different beliefs, because the next thing we know they’ll be started on the next group, then the next, and the next; soon they might be the only people alive.

I say, “Stop asking for war; it’s wrong! Is what you want power, control, or justice? Is it really necessary to punish others for having a different religion? Everyone knows that killing people is wrong and everyone has rights, even you.

“Does it make you happy that you might think of doing whatever you want after everyone is dead because you killed us all? How does that make you feel? Maybe just stopping and thinking of that will help you realize how important it is to stop killing other people.

“I hope you got my message of how important it is to stop killing other people, because honestly killing people for any reason is wrong! Maybe for the sake of humanity, ISIS will stop, and if not, we’ll all suffer, even them.”

One more question for ISIS: “What happens if a family member of yours is a different religion; will you kill them too?”
