Iraq has become place of death for Christians, priest warns

ICC Note

“There is a sinister interest in getting rid of the Christians in this city ”

10/14/2008 Iraq (CNA)- Father Philip Najim of the Patriarchate of Babylonia of the Chaldeans, warned this week that violent anti-Christian violence carried out by Islamic fundamentalists in Iraq has turned the country “into a place of death, a country in which the death and harming of defenseless people has become an industry.¨

“The situation in Mosul has gotten worse,” he continued. “There is a sinister interest in getting rid of the Christians in this city. This is a black policy which does not favor man, it´s not a policy that seeks to improve the situation and bring democracy to the country. We cannot have peace when life is not respected, especially human life, which is a natural right and above all a gift from God.”
