    First that I have heard of this. No link, so I do not know the details. If true, given ISIS' reputation, I would say that they are lucky to be given the chance to leave.

    They're not just booting Christians from Mosul, they're burning churches, executing Christians, and labeling houses of believers for attack.

    Real persecution is going on in Iraq right now. We should pray for these faithful believers. It is expected that within two to three years there will be nearly no Christians living in Iraq. We had just begun seeing a many moving back into the area, now many are dying and most are fleeing.

    FWIW, the Muslims I am friends with here in the States are disgusted by these kinds of events. That said, it is hard for them to explain why Islam isn't a religion of hate with these ongoing events.

    I keep trying to add an edit to the post but it won't let me:

    Last night at an Iftar meal, I was talking with some Muslim friends about this. They are stunned that this kind of persecution continued to go on. When I pressed them on how the Qu'ran provides answers, they had little to offer. I then talked about how Jesus came to bring peace and never championed violence, which is contradistinction to Muhammed who brought violence.

    Muslims are sad at these events, but their religion perpetuates violence upon those who disagree. We must offer them peace and a better way. :)
