According to a new article:
Iraq had always been an island of religious toleration in the Muslim-dominated Middle East. But since the toppling of Saddam Hussein’s government, non-Islamists have been targeted and toleration has disappeared. ((The John Birch Society))
What was once a tolerant nation towards Christianity, Iraq has become the new Roman Coliseum. Thousands of Christians have left the once open harvest and the one who remain find themselves in danger of losing their lives. Christians are killed daily in Iraq due to what I consider a miserable foreign policy. The Middle Eastern hatred towards America only increases as American troops fulfill the government’s mandates by inciting greater violence. As a Christian my hope is that America will pull their troops and use diplomacy to speak sense into the few allies they still have in Iraq and stop the bloodshed of Christians ((Read about the Chaldean Clerics)) and open their gates for the Christian message.
