IRAQ - ISIS Tests Chemical Weapons on Humans

Arno Froese

Isis are conducting chemical weapons experiments on “human guinea pigs” before launching attacks on Western targets, according to secret documents. 

The extremist group has reportedly poisoned prisoners by spiking their food and water with compounds used in pesticides that are easy to obtain. 

Security forces now fear the terror network may hatch a twisted plot to contaminate Western food supplies with formulas that quickly dissolve in liquid.

The experiments were recorded in a stash of papers found hidden in Mosul University after Iraqi special forces recaptured the city from IS fighters. 

Isis described the chemical thalium sulphate as an “ideal lethal poison” and claimed to be in “possession of an ample amount of the solution to fill demands,” according to the documents, which were verified by British and US forces and later obtained by The Times. 

The chemical weapons report also contained recipes and guides for producing a toxic nicotine compound.

They are thought to have used Mosul University, one of the largest in the Middle East, to develop chemical weapons for the last three years.

The program is now believed to have moved to the group’s headquarters in Raqqa, Syria., 21 May 2017

Arno's commentary

What is most surprising is that this group has not been eradicated. Virtually the whole world has declared that ISIS is a horrible terrorist group and does not represent any nation. There are many reasons reported in the media why ISIS has been so successful and so difficult to destroy.

It is this writer’s opinion that ISIS has more support from the public, particularly in Iraq, than reported. One must not overlook the fact that, since the 2003 invasion of the country, approximately 174,000 Iraqis were killed, with an estimated 112,000-123,000 being civilians. That simply means there is almost no family in Iraq who is not weeping for lost family members: fathers, mothers, children, relatives, and friends. Thus, the ISIS movement found fertile ground to discharge their hate on any and all who do not agree with their twisted Islamic philosophy.

What is their future? As previously reported, ISIS will be eradicated as a functioning organization, with most of its necessary infrastructure, but the spirit of ISIS—and for that matter any other evil-intended movement, philosophy, or organization—will never be wiped out, because the world is full of sin, which is rebellion against the God of Israel. It is the entire world that stands in opposition to God’s Word, and will continue to rebel until the Prince of Peace comes and makes an end of war.

When God sends His judgment during the time of the Great Tribulation, we read that humanity continues to be in total rebellion against God. “And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory” (Revelation 16:9).
