I wonder how the Greater Israel Project feels about this. You know, the guys who created the Israeli Secret Intelligence Service., a.k.a. ISIS?
No support from western Christian or Catholic orgs. They’re too busy raising money for Muslim refugees and palestinian terrorist groups. – Anonymous
Read the full article on Breitbart: ‘It’s Now or Never’: Iraqi Christians Fill Pews in Burned Down Churches After Islamic State
Hope has returned to one of the oldest Christian communities in the world as they struggle to bring life again to their historical homeland in northern Iraq, where they suffered a genocide campaign at the hands of the now crumbling Islamic State.
“Christians have a future in Iraq. As you know, more biblical activity took place in Iraq than any other country in the world, other than Israel,” former Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA) told Breitbart News after his recent visit to Iraq, adding, “I think there’s an opportunity to save Christianity in the cradle of Christendom. Now is the time. We have an administration that’s open to doing something.”
“It’s now or never. We are at the tipping point and if we do nothing, we will lose Christianity in the cradle of Christianity. As Christians, this is our homeland and we must do everything to save it,” added Martha Hudson, an advocate for minority groups in Iraq who traveled with the congressman.
She noted that at least 1,000 families have returned to Qaraqosh alone, considered Iraq’s largest Christian city before it was devastated by the Islamic State, also known as ISIS and ISIL. The city is located in Nineveh province, once home to the largest concentration of Christians in Iraq.
However, Ashur Sargon Eskrya, the president of the Assyrian Aid Society branch in Iraq (AAS-I), told Breitbart News via email that the looming jihadist threat is preventing many Christians from returning to recently liberated Mosul.
“There’s a willingness and desire on the part of the Christians to stay. I think given protection and coordination with housing and infrastructure, they will return,” noted Wolf, co-founder of the 21st Century Wilberforce Initiative, a religious freedom organization focused on saving religious minorities in Iraq.
