(KRT) – Gewargis Radif is adamant that he won’t be defeated by insurgents targeting Christians in Iraq . So on Monday – Holy Cross Day for his Assyrian Orthodox sect – the retired defense industry worker lit a blue-bulb cross on his roof, then joined his wife and children on the street below to launch hand-held fireworks into the night sky. He ignored the danger, of which there is plenty. Last month, a bombing outside a neighboring Roman Catholic seminary killed two family friends and shattered a dozen windows in his home. On Sunday night, an anonymous man phoned in a bomb threat to Radif’s church a five-minute drive away.
