'END VERY NEAR' FOR IRAQ CHRISTIANS
Daily Mail Online ^ | 7-26-2014 | Press Association

Posted on 07/26/2014 12:22:49 PM PDT by tcrlaf

The end appears "very near" for Christians in Iraq, the vicar of the only Anglican church in the country warned as he appealed for more help to counter the threat from Islamist militants.

Faced with an ultimatum from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (Isis) forces to convert, pay a tax or be killed, Christians in the northern city of Mosul mostly fled last week.

But Canon Andrew White - dubbed "the bishop of Baghdad" for his work at St George's church in the capital, said they were trapped in the desert or on the streets with nowhere to go.

"Things are so desperate, our people are disappearing," he told BBC Radio 4's Today.

"We have had people massacred, their heads chopped off.

"Are we seeing the end of Christianity? We are committed come what may, we will keep going to the end, but it looks as though the end could be very near."

There are many gruesome pics floating around on Twitter of Christians in Iraq that have been beheaded in recent days.

And the U.S. press stays silent. I just cannot figure out why.

and the US does nothing ....

Yet another reason to impeach and immediately remove Obama , replace him by a military administration , for 3 years , and go into the full ATTACK mode against ISIS , al Qaeda , the Taliban ( Afg & Pak ) and Hamas/Hezbollah , in support of Israel . Clean up Libya too . Lots to do and we could do it , if we replace this idiotic civilian administration and all the politicians in DC with their heads up their asses .

I am certain the muslim one is happy with this news.

This is terrible news. If I was President I would find a way to safely move from Iraq all Christians under siege there.

Islam is an evil murderous cult -- not a religion.

“And it shall come to pass in that day, that the great trumpet shall be blown, and they shall come which were ready to perish in the land of Assyria, and the outcasts in the land of Egypt, and shall worship the Lord in the holy mount at Jerusalem.” Isaiah Chapter 27:13

“the great trumpet” I believe is the same one we’re shown in Exodus Chapter 19, it is the Trumpet of God himself, and it has not been blown since Israel was at Mount Sinai,

Please pray for those in harms way, and also pray for understanding of where we are prophetically in these dark days,

I don’t like it. But it is what every son of a bitch that voted for Obama voted for.

Maybe removing Saddam wasn’t such a great idea, after all.

In my opinion, he is a plague on humanity. And I agree with your assessment.

Two things cause this. 1. They don’t share a border with the US. 2. They’re Christians and deserve to die.

I have CONTEMPT for any American who enabled these Evil people. Not sympathy for their ignorance - - they CHOSE Evil. They should suffer the same for their contemptible choices.

Obama’s doing more to hurt the Democrats than the GOPe ever did. Let him swing in the wind. It’s his rope.

There’s no benefit to impeaching him and only costs. He’s begging for something to save his Presidency. Don’t give it to him.

Blacks are going to stay home this November and perhaps in 2016 as well. That’s good news for liberty and bad news for statists.

In a rational world we would be welcoming Christian refugees from Islamic countries instead of gangsters from Central America.

Question! Are the Muslims shown in the photos of African/Negro’ blood or are they just naturally dark skinned? This needs to be considered in respect to Obama being of ‘African’ blood or just as probable of Indonesian blood.

Christians are crusaders, imperialists, or children of crusaders and imperialists. Leftist logic.

Maybe electing a President with a middle name of HUSSEIN wasn't such a great idea either.

“Faced with an ultimatum...to convert, pay a tax or be killed,...”

Option #4: Shoot them first
Option #5: Shoot back and take as many as you can with you.

Sorry. They won’t vote Democrat. Meanwhile they are flying and bussing in future illegal Democrat breeding machines by the hundreds of thousands.

Of course, not a word of outrage from this corrupt administration. But when someone does anything to his true bosom buddies, he’s angry and outraged, and spends our money.

It’s run by godless Liberals who hate Christians, and support Islam. That’s why.
