ISIS Is Wiping Out Christians In Towns They Capture

From an unfazed Reuters:

Ancient Christian population of Mosul flees Islamic State

By Ahmed Rasheed and Maggie Fick | July 19, 2014

BAGHDAD (Reuters) – The ancient Christian community of the northern Iraqi city of Mosul had all but fled by Saturday, ending a presence stretching back nearly two millennia after radical Islamists set them a midday deadline to submit to Islamic rule or leave.

This is actually a real holocaust. Unlike the Democrats’ fantasy of a holocaust on (what used to be) our southern border. But the Democrats and their media minions don’t even seem be noticing it.

The ultimatum by the Islamic State drove out the few hundred Christians who had stayed on when the group’s hardline Sunni Muslim fighters overran Mosul a month ago, threatening Christians and the diverse city’s other religious communities.

This week the Islamic State gave any remaining Christians a final choice to make by Saturday noon: convert to Islam, pay a religious tax, or face the sword.

Remember how we were mocked for warning that this is exactly what Christian would face wherever Muslim extremists took over?

A Catholic bishop from Mosul told Reuters that 150 Christian families had left in recent days and church leaders had advised the few families who wanted to negotiate with militants that they should also flee for their own safety…

The Islamic State, an al Qaeda offshoot, relayed its ultimatum from mosque loudspeakers and spraypainted Christian properties with the letter "N" for Nasrani, or Christian, residents said…

How biblical of them.

Mosul, the largest city in northern Iraq, was once among the country’s most mixed. Waves of attacks on Christians since the 2003 U.S.-led invasion to topple Saddam Hussein eroded its once sizeable Christian population, mainly from the Assyrian and Chaldean denominations…

We knew it was Bush’s fault.

Its decree in Mosul mirrored one that its fighters issued in the Syrian city of Raqqa in February, demanding that Christians pay the ‘jizya’ levy in gold and curb displays of their faith in return for protection.

Christians in other parts of Iraq worried that the campaign to clear Christians from Mosul will extend throughout Nineveh province, a vast area that stretches to the Syrian border…

So where is the world-wide outrage at the extermination of Christians, not just by the ISIS, but in Nigeria, and everywhere Muslim extremism is on the march? Where is the #hashtag campaign?
