This is all, not to even mention that they told the Christians to convert to Islam, pay a crippling tax, or be killed... So the Christians have fled.

As noted on the website of the Catholic Diocese of Lancaster, England:
"For the first time in 1,600 years, Mass is not being said in Mosul: an ancient culture has been wiped out in a matter of weeks."

How terribly sad and awful. I am praying for all those who are suffering and for an end to this evil madness. What a huge loss for Catholics as we are all united.

The "religion" of peace strikes again.

I don't think we can begin to imagine the anguish Mosul's Christians are experiencing now. They could freely practice their faith even under the despicable Saddam Hussein. Prayer yes, but prayer is not enough. This mad bunch of fanatics (I refuse to honor them with their name) equals the absolute worst in human history.

These thugs are disobeying their own prophet:

"...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.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."

A recently released video (see link below) shows Christians recounting the horror they endured under ISIS before fleeing Mosul. In one of the interviews a Christian woman said that
ISIS Muslims came to her and her sister and said: "Bring your money and give it to us. If not, each one of you will be shot in the head Youll receive one shot in the head each."

The video ends with the same woman weeping and mourning, declaring the most profound words of our Lord:
Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. (Matthew 10:16)
