The Story The World Needs To Address: Iraqi Christians
Earlier this week an announcement was made by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) recently renamed as the Islamic State. The announcement was directly aimed at the Christians of Mosul, providing three options:
Option 1. Convert to Islam.
Option 2. Pay a special protection tax.
Option 3. Face the sword resulting in death.

Just like the Nazis, homes were marked in preparation for the deadline.
I have since come to learn that just 15 Assyrian families have remained and in doing so they have converted to Islam. I feel so sad for the Christians of Iraq. For so many years, they lived very well, together with all others.
If I can dodge the bullets in Baghdad, then I’ll certainly never give in to MS

The Christians of Iraq have suffered for too long. Mosul is gone, we all wonder which city will be the next to fall.
I will leave you with this photo that was recently shared on twitter:
