Islamic State to Christians in Mosul: Convert or Die

MOSUL (Worthy News)-- The Islamic State have distributed leaflets to Christians in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul threatening to kill them if they don't convert, according to Breitbart News.

"This is ethnic cleansing but nobody is speaking up," Yonadam Kanna, an Iraqi Christian politician, told Agence France-Presse.

Christians who fail to accept Islam or pay extra taxes to ISIS sharia courts will face "death by the sword". The tax -- called a "jizya" -- permits non-Muslims to keep their own religion if they allow themselves to be financially extorted by their Muslim overseers.

Christians who don't kowtow to either of these Islamic demands were given permission to leave Mosul by "high noon" Saturday or face the consequences. But many who fled Mosul with only what they could carry still left empty-handed.<

"Some families have had all their money and jewelry taken from them at an insurgent checkpoint as they fled the city," Abu Rayan, a Mosul Christian who left the city with his family told AFP.

The warning to convert or die comes as ISIS withdraws from parts of Mosul to fight Iraqi armed forces in Tikrit.

Mosul, the largest city in northern Iraq, once had a sizable Christian population, but its seizure by ISIS drove out other religious minorities including the Turkmen Shi'ites and the Yazidis, an ethnic Kurdish group that practices a religion linked to Zoroastrianism, according to Creeping Sharia.

6 thoughts on “Islamic State to Christians in Mosul: Convert or Die

  1. If there really are any Muslims who want peace then why are they still Muslims? Why are they still in this death cult and passing it on to their children? They need to take a really hard, honest look at their religion, like Nabeel Qureshi did, and decide if they are going to follow God or if they are going to continue following Satan, for that is who Allah is. Jesus said that Satan came to steal, kill, and destroy, and that's all I see Islam doing. Jesus also said you would know a tree by its fruit, and the fruit of Islam proves it is not of God. These Christians who are not converting may lose their lives and all their possessions, but they are storing up true riches in Heaven. They will hear the words all true Christians long to hear, "Well done, good and faithful servant." My suffering brothers and sisters in Christ, you are in my prayers and in my giving. The raping, thieving, murderous butchers of Isis will fall to Christ and be destroyed. Their day of reckoning will come. Justice may be delayed, but it will not be delayed forever, and it is a terrible thing to fall into the hands of a just God when your hands are covered in blood.

  2. Everywhere where the American Army goes on-off, later Christians are persecuted; that is really Exceptional.
