ISLAMIC STATE Islamic Supremacy Muslim persecution of Christians


Doesn’t surprise me that the Islamic fundamentalist Islamic State treats the sacred edifices of the non-believer like dung holes.

At least the ones that they haven’t already torched.

An Iraqi Christian man from Mosul, who fled from violence in their country, reads a book at the Latin Patriarchate Church in Amman. Hundreds of thousands of Iraqis have fled their homes.

The Iraqi city of Mosul was once a majority-Christian city, but is now an Islamic State (IS) stronghold, where militants have repurposed deserted church buildings as prisons.

Fides news agency reports that detainees were held at the ancient Chaldean Church of the Immaculate Conception in the eastern part of the city, having been blindfolded and handcuffed.

St George’s monastery has also allegedly been used as a female detention centre.

Reports circulated last week that the nearby convent of the Chaldean Sisters of the Sacred Heart had been bombed by IS militants.
