John 16….”These things I have spoken to you so that you may be kept from stumbling. “They will make you outcasts from the synagogue, but an hour is coming for everyone who kills you to think that he is offering service to God. “These things they will do because they have not known the Father or Me.…

Mosul Agenzia Fides – The last Christian families still present in Mosul are leaving the city and are heading towards Erbil, Dohuk and other areas of Iraqi Kurdistan which are considered safer.

This is confirmed by sources of the local Chaldean community to Fides Agency. The new exodus has accelerated in the past two days, after Sunni insurgents and militants of the Islamic Caliphate began to mark with letters of recognitionthe homes of Christians and Shiites.

As reported by the website http://www.Ankawa.com, the evacuation of the last Christians is also due to the intensification of the bombing carried out by the military government on many areas of the city, especially at night.

In many villages of the Nineveh Plain, the main emergency is currently represented by the suspension of water supply, made even more unbearable due to high temperatures. GV Agenzia Fides 18/07/2014 via The last Christian families leave Mosul – Fides News Agency.

Today, the call for Christians to leave rang out through loudspeakers throughout the city. The reason, due to the rejection of the bishops to meet the elements of Daash to dictate terms to the Christians, which is to pay tribute or convert to Islam.

Reports claim as Christians are evacuating the city, they are robbed of all their money and possessions by the militants. Some saying they are lucky to get out with their lives. The vast majority of Christian families remaining in the city began to leave and left on Thursday. A notification was posted to leave the city within a period ending by the time of the Friday sermon July 18, otherwise they would be killed.

One of the displaced Christians said, they were to leave by noon on Friday, and prevented from taking any of their property, which was being confiscated by the Islamic state[ISIS,IS]. He added,  “At a checkpoint militants forced us to get out of the car, checked our identities and confiscated what we had in cash, my wife and daughter’s jewels, as well as  our mobile phones before allowing us to pass.

Please pray for our Iraqi Christian brothers and sisters.

  1. In Iraq’s ancient Ninevah (Mosul) the last Christians are evicted by ISIS. Unfortunately under-reported in media. Seems U.S. media and politicians can barely focus on 2 major events, much less 5 or 6! (VA scandal, IRS, Immigrant issue in Texas, plus several middle east hotspots. While America wrings its hands overseas, ISIS, and what’s left of Assad’s Syria and Iraq, as well as Russia, China and IRAN’s nukes program, weaponizing of Hamas and Hezbollah, and their HOLDING OF 3 AMERICAN HOSTAGES all continue!
