(AsiaNews) – Saturday’s attack against churches “was more than a warning” against the Christian community, a community whose situation, despite claims to the contrary, was already precarious under the previous regime. Although Saddam kept a tight grip on everything and thus guaranteed security, there were episodes of persecution. Mgr Fernando Filoni, apostolic nuncio in Iraq , remembers the times when Iraqi Christians faced difficulties and persecution. He also made it clear that they have a firm intention to build their future in Iraq . “Christians do not want to leave. They are children of this land and want to live peacefully side by side with Muslims”.
