When U.S. troops invaded Iraq in 2003, there were at least 1.5 million Christians in Iraq. Over the last ten years, significantly in the last few months with the emergence of ISIS, that figure has dropped to about 400,000.
In a region where Christians predate Muslims by centuries, over one million Christians have been killed or have had to flee because of jihadi persecution, while America is basically standing by and watching. ...
...“in the last 48 hours, ISIS, which is now called the Islamic State in Mosul, has painted the letter “N” for Nazarene on the houses of all the surviving Christians in the city. ISIS has basically given an ultimatum to all the Christians left: You can either flee or convert to Islam, or we will kill you.” (continue at Breitbart)
We've seen people in the US taking to the streets in support of the 'Palestinians', (Hamas terrorists actually). Very few speak out for the Israelis who are being targeted with missiles, suicide bombers, tunnels into their neighborhoods, and kidnapping. Two Americans who were soldiers for the Israel Defense Force were killed in fighting in the Gaza Strip.
I don't see any taking to the streets for Christians around the world.
The residents lost, and now the town, Zowiya, just outside of Tikrit, is destroyed. More than 200 of its homes have been blown up, and the residents have fled.
The Islamic State leveled the town as a warning to anybody else that dares to fight them. (continue at NPR)
Christians are not being targeted just in Iraq, it is all across the Middiel East, and in places like North Korea, China, and on and on. But no one in US politics seem concerned about the Christians.
