Civil war looms in Iraq

The attention of people around the world has come to a culmination today with the mass exodus of Christians fleeing from their homes in the Northern Iraqi city of Mosul. Muslim's hate towards Christians has created a situation so desperate that even Iraq's parliament has implored its citizens to protect themselves through all means necessary. “Ninety-nine percent of the Christians have left Mosul,” pastor Haitham Jazrawi said today following the takeover of Iraq’s second largest city—and its ancient Christian homeland—by al-Qaeda-linked jihadist militants. Unfortunately, horrific explosions are occurring and militants are infiltrating areas of Iraq's Christian population. A population which, was once one of the oldest in the world.

Today, several hundred gunmen connected with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, ISIL, raided Mosul, overwhelmed Iraqi army and police and killed a large number of civilians. While details are still developing on the number of deaths, the body count has risen to the hundreds. More than 150,000 Mosul residents left their homes today, while others are hiding in churches and schoolhouses waiting for an opportunity to flee.

The Quran eerily preaches "If only they [i.e. Christians] had stood fast by the Law, the Gospel, and all the revelation that was sent to them from their Lord, they would have enjoyed happiness from every side. There is from among them a party on the right course, but many of them follow a course that is evil".

As Iraqi troops hasten to organize their resources, the ISIL fighters have continued working their way south towards the country's strategic oilfields. This is also the place where pastor Jazrawi leads one of the country's oldest Christian churches. Pastor Jazrawi commented via e-mail, “No one knows what will happen to us in the next days, pray for us. We still believe that our Lord wants us to stay in Iraq.”

    Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad; for great is your reward in heaven; for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you Mathews 5:11,12

    War is not the proper way to solve the problem of Iraq. To solve the problem leaders should have to come forward and sit together ad discuss the matter and find out the solution. We don't want the war, we want peace.
