A year after the massacre at the Syrian Catholic cathedral in Baghdad left 58 dead, an Assyrian news agency is expressing concern about the future of Iraqs Christian community.
For Assyrians in Iraq, the scheduled departure of U.S. forces at the end of December, 2011 is of great concern, the Assyrian International News Agency stated in an article commemorating the massacre. [Assyrian is a term that includes members of separated Eastern churches (the Assyrian Church of the East and the Syrian Orthodox Church) and Eastern Catholic churches in communion with the Holy See (the Chaldean Catholic Church and the Syrian Catholic Church).]
The Shiite Maliki government is under the influence of Iran and the Shiites have not been friendly to Assyrians in Iraq, as they have engaged in the persecution and killing of Assyrians since 2004, the agency continued. Without the US presence as a deterrent, Assyrians face the danger of unchecked Islamic persecution.
Remembering the Black Sunday Massacre and the Future of Assyrians in Iraq (AINA)
Any Christian than can should leave. Those who cannot should arm themselves.
The feces is about to hit the rotating device as far as Christians in the Middle east are concerned.
It pay-back time for the Crusades and all that evil Christian stuff.
