The Quiet Genocide in Iraq
Amid the daily reports of casualties in Iraq in the news, a quieter genocide is occurring among the Assyrian Christians living in Iraq. Check this link.
"Through intimidation, forced conversions, murder, kidnapping, beheading of Church leaders, rape, and daily threats against their security and lives, the Assyrian Christian population in Baghdad and other major cities has dwindled from a once-thriving community to almost nothing."
When we go to prayer daily for the needs of our families and loved ones, let us join in prayer for these brothers and sisters as well.
Lord have mercy on them.
