...In 2003, Iraq’s Christian population was at least one million. Today fewer than 400,000 remain—the result of an anti-Christian campaign that began with the U.S. occupation of Iraq, when countless Christian churches were bombed and countless Christians killed, including by crucifixion and beheading.
The 2010 Baghdad church attack, which saw nearly 60 Christian worshippers slaughtered, is the tip of a decade-long iceberg.
Now, as the U.S. supports the jihad on Syria’s secular president
Assad, the same pattern has come to Syria: entire regions and towns
where Christians lived for centuries before Islam came into being have
now been emptied, as the opposition targets Christians for kidnapping,
plundering, and beheadings, all in compliance with mosque calls telling
the populace that it’s a “sacred duty” to drive Christians away.
