"We offer them three choices: Islam; the dhimma contract - involving payment of jizya; if they refuse this they will have nothing but the sword," the announcement said.
A resident of Mosul said the statement, issued in the name of the Islamic State in Iraq's northern province of Nineveh, had been distributed on Thursday and read out in mosques.
It said Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, which the group has now named Caliph Ibrahim, had set a Saturday deadline for Christians who did not want to stay and live under those terms to "leave the borders of the Islamic Caliphate".
"After this date, there is nothing between us and them but the sword," it said.

When we first went into Iraq I had this crazy notion/prayer that our soldiers would be able to spread the gospel and convert Muslims to Christianity. Needless to say I'm pretty disappointed as I read this. However, God's still on the throne so possibly there has been an upsurge in Christians in the country and that's why the persecution has been turned up to high heat. Prayers for those Iraqi Christians who suffer through this persecution. I pray His covering over them and His provision for them. Amen!
