Posted on 07/31/2014 10:36:19 AM PDT by afraidfortherepublic
For over 2,000 years, Christians and Muslims lived in peace in Mosul, Iraq, the country's second largest city. That all changed on June 10, 2014 when the Islamic State, formerly known as ISIS, invaded the city and evicted its Christian population. With the Christians gone, ISIS has begun to destroy or occupy every Christian landmark in the city.
The Assyrian International News Agency released a full list of the 45 institutions the Islamic State destroyed or occupied. Here are a few examples:
Syrian Catholic Diocese
Church of Our Lady of the Annunciation
Archbishops Palace Chapel
Syrian Orthodox Archdiocese
Church of the Immaculate
Diocese of the Assyrian Church of the East
Church of the Holy Spirit
Evangelical Presbyterian Church
Latin Church and Monastery of the Dominican Fathers and Convent of Katrina Siena Nuns
Christian Cemetery in the Ekab Valley
On July 19, the Islamic State gave Christians 12 hours to convert to Islam, pay a protection tax, or die. The majority chose to flee the city. The terrorists marked Christian homes and businesses with the letter N for Nazarene and imposed a radical version of Sharia law.
Yes, they expelled us from our real land, one woman said. From our real land! They told us, Go away! This is not your land. Go to your Christian people and to your pastors. Let them feed you, shelter you, and give you homes.'
The takeover started with kidnappings of security guards and soldiers. Then the group destroyed statues of Jesus and the Virgin Mary and raised a black ISIS flag in Marys place...

Pray for them.
Hopefully all of the celebrities in Spain are going to release a statement condemning this, like they had time to condemn Israel.
When ISIS comes knocking on their door...
Obama is smiling
The bearded savages are destroying Christians and Christian things.
democrats love bearded savages.
democrats want to eliminate Christianity from the face of the United States.
democrats are doing everything they can to bring more bearded savages into this country, and to give them money and power.
As for the conclusion, I’ll let you figure it out.
These demonic miscreants can blow up all the churches they want, but it will have no effect on the Church. God may allow evil, but He also punishes it. His punishment is everlasting.
Pray for them...............................
I pray that they are warmly received as they gain their just rewards. May God hasten their reception.
I wonder how “turn the other cheek” is working out for them?
I'm the kind of guy that, when I look up at the gingerbread of an old Victorian house, I consider; "A man's hands coped every ONE of those suckers out" !
Not a peep from the media, not a peep from these celebrities who are too busy denouncing Israel for protecting itself..meanwhile a REAL Holocaust is going on in Iraq and other countries, Christians are being slaughtered and Obama is smiling
2,000 years ago, Jesus Christ had not yet manifested himself as the Mesiah. The only "Christians" at that time were his mother, Mary, St. Joseph, St. John the Baptist, and possibly St. Ann, St. Joachim (Mary's parents), St. Elizabeth, and Zachariah (John the Baptist's parents). (Aside: I wonder why we don't call him St. Zachariah. Hmmmm...)
I just don't like sloppiness in reporting. It should read "For almost 2,000 years...."
King Barry’s silence on this matter is DEAFENING. His failure to order ‘highway of death’ airstrikes on all ISIS convoys is downright SICKENING.
What needs to be done if said by me, will get me zapped or banned.
I meant to pray for the displaced persons — not ISIS. I hope that is what you meant too. :)
Not even close. Islam is only 1400 years old.
Indeed, they should have re-read Luke 22:36 and organized themselves. Are there no military veterans amongst them to lead them?
Not very well, it seems. In times like these, we need to heed the prophet Joel: "Hammer your plowshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears. Train even your weaklings to be warriors." (Joel 3:10)
The first part of the first sentence is incorrect. It is not “ovet 2000 years”, it should be “almost 1400 years”. Christians would have lived in the area for hundreds of years (under the Parthian and Sasanian empires) prior to the Islamic conquest in 652 or even the birth of Muhammad in 570.
GW Bush calls it "The Religion of Peace"
Our current President's name is Islamic.
Not a good trajectory for America to say the least.
Excellent point! I totally missed that, as obvious as it is.
“Faith and force ... are corollaries: every period of history dominated by mysticism was a period of statism, of dictatorship, of tyranny.” ... Ayn Rand
Actually, I was refering to ISIS and wishing them quick despatch but after rereading my post, one could apply it in a kindly way toward the disposessed and peersecuted Christians.
. . . as the MSM yawn.
“For over 2,000 years, Christians and Muslims lived in peace in Mosul....”
Islam is something from the 6th century — there was no Islam before that time.
HollyWierd Marxists and ISIS have the same enemies.
Pray America wakes up
" ... religion is an early form of philosophy, that the first attempts to explain the universe, to give a coherent frame of reference to mans life and a code of moral values, were made by religion, before men graduated or developed enough to have philosophy. And, as philosophies, some religions have very valuable moral points. They may have a good influence or proper principles to inculcate, but ... "
