There's a Christian genocide happening right now in Iraq, and the details are shocking.
In an interview on CNN, businessman and Chaldean-American leader Mark Arabo described the atrocities being done to Christians by ISIS:
“A Christian Holocaust is in our midst. We are actually calling this a Christian genocide… Day by day, it is getting worse and worse."
“...There's actually a park in Mosul where they actually beheaded children and put their heads on a stick... this is crimes against humanity. They are doing the most horrendous, the most heart-breaking crimes that you can think of.”
“They are absolutely killing every Christian they see. This is absolutely a genocide in every sense of the word. They want everyone to convert, and they want sharia law to be the law of the land.”
Arabo stated that more than 300,000 Iraqis are currently fleeing Iraq for their lives and called upon neighboring governments to welcome these refugees into their countries.
What ISIS is doing is heartbreaking, appalling and wrong. No nation, regardless of its people's religion or ethnicity, should allow a mass murdering to happen, and we must hope that it is swiftly stopped.
