The once-thriving Jewish community in Iraq is completely gone as a result of Islamic antisemitism. The Islamic hatred of non-Muslims now promises to finish off the Christian community in Iraq at the hands of ISIL.
The Christian community in Iraq has already been decimated. Now it is being finished off altogether. And the world stands silent, naval gazing and obsessing over perceived insults to Moe.
50,000 Assyrians Flee Fighting in North Iraq, AINA, June 16, 2014 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
(AINA) Nearly all of the population of Qaraqosh, 50,000 Assyrians, has fled the city amid fighting between ISIS and Kurds. Syrian Catholic Archbishop Mar Youhana Boutros Moshe attempted to negotiate with ISIS and the Kurds to convince them to leave the city, but the negotiations failed. ISIS and the Revolutionary Tribes (Sunnis) are set to storm the city.
According to Bishop Yousif Habash of the Syriac Orthodox Church in New Jersey, Qaraqosh (also known as Baghdede) is now almost completely abandoned. A source reporting from Qaraqosh told AINA the population has fled to Arbel, Dohuk, Alqosh, Tel Kepe, Telsqop and Ankawa. Monasteries and churches are filled with displaced Christian refugees from Baghdede. There is an urgent need for food, water, medical aid and blankets.
Kurdish forces and ISIS pounded each other with mortars. The Kurds have positioned themselves on the east side of Qaraqosh, ISIS and the Revolutionary Tribes have stationed themselves on the west and south side, near the villages of Tawajna and Qurtaba-Arab and south of Balawat.
ISIS has given the Kurdish forces an ultimatum to leave by 7 P.M. else face an attack.
The city is known by three names: Baghdede in Assyrian, Hamdaniya in Arabic and Qaraqosh in Turkish.
Seems to me that 50,000 Christians should have picked up arms to fight instead of joining the Iraqi army running away.
Meanwhile 50,000 children amass on the American border.
Where in the Middle East do the oldest Christians still remain? Any links? Thanks?
Pet peeve: “Naval gazing” is looking at ships on the horizon. “Navel gazing” is looking at your bellybutton instead of taking action. I’d have thought Pam Geller would know the difference.
