Here is an article from Leonard Blair of the Christian Post. Please remember that this is the group that the Democrats compare to the Hobby Lobby decision allowing Hobby Lobby not to pay for four abortion inducing drugs. I haven’t heard any Democrat outrage against these activities. You would think that they would at least be upset about the pollution from all the burning going on over there. For the first time in 1800 years Mass is not being said in Mosul and the President says nothing, the Democrats say nothing and maybe there is a reason for that silence. Anyway here is the article –
“Members of the militant group Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) reportedly torched a 1,800 year-old Catholic Church in Mosul, Iraq and have effectively left that city “empty of Christians” as believers fled the area in fear of their lives, according to Chaldean Catholic Patriarch Louis Sako.
Sources told Shoebat that the ISIS group in Mosul called “Daash” completely burned the Syriac Catholic Diocese and its contents in Mosul. A Chaldean, Syriac and Assyrian Website released photos of the church in flames Saturday.
Many Christians still in Mosul also hurried to leave the city before Saturday when an ISIS ultimatum that Christians convert to Islam, pay a tax or leave came into effect.
“We left Mosul as we saw that [we] were close to being butchered, and under the threat of armed militants. It was serious and firm,” a Christian named Mukhalis Yeshua told Shoebat.
“…But the issue that spark Please remed the pain and sorrow was the checkpoints exiting Mosul as the armed men searched the families, and robbed all their money as search parties from the IS (Islamic Caliphate) searched all the women and robbed their jewelry and money, telling them that such money is Islamic property,” added the Christian.
Patriarch Sako told AFP Friday that: “Christian families are on their way to Dohuk and Arbil,” in the neighboring autonomous region of Kurdistan. “For the first time in the history of Iraq, Mosul is now empty of Christians,” he said.
Once home to an estimated 1 million Christians before the 2003 U.S.-led invasion that ousted former President Saddam Hussein, church officials now place the Christian community in Iraq at about 450,000.”
