Skip to comments.ISIS Closes In On Christians in Dramatic Overnight Development

Christians flee their homes with only the clothes on their backs. How would you handle this situation in order to protect your family?
How is the President’s golf game and fund raising going?
I’m sure the lecturer in chief will have something profound to say about it all..
Never mind all that. Ghaza./s
Save Thy people, O Lord,
and bless Thine inheritance.
Grant victory to Thy Church over her enemies,
and protect Thy people by Thy Holy Cross!
Obama and his media should be pleased at how fast Iraq is ridding itself of Christian values, as well as Christians. Expect the Obama perverts to blame this on some anti Islamic movie no one has watched, or on George Bush, or the Tea Party.
With very little money, we could easily target these POS with a few hundred drones loaded with hellfire missiles. 24*7 and plenty of volunteers to stay up late pushing buttons.
Our government is comprised of morons and wimps.
No one seems to pay attention or care when they are Christian Holocausts though.
5 oclock now. Time for bed. Fundraising tomorrow.
Prayers being said... this is terrible.
Is that a trick question?
"Uncle Joe" (Joseph Stalin), 1935
I saw an article that said we were making airstrikes in that area.
Still awaiting confirmation.
Martha's Vineyard is lovely this time of year, I'm told.
I find it most curious that our Libyan intervention was premised on Qadafi's alleged threats to massacre civilians in Benghazi. In response to this, Barry could involve the US, while ignoring the War Powers Act. But all the "humanitarians," like Susan Rice, said it was the thing to do.
So now we have a real humanitarian crisis, involving a truly vicious foe. And Barry's urgency, so great in Libya, seems strangely absent when the victims are going to be Christians, instead of Muslims.
Just a coincidence, I'm sure.
...and for even less money, airdrop a few loads of AK’s & ammo, an the Christians could defend their own selves...
Well our resident is going to drop them food so they can have a last meal before they are slaughtered.
Even knowing about this for weeks, he had to plan his vacation.
Amen to your prayer.
Whatever few Christians are still left in that “country” need to GTFO. Now, not tomorrow, not in an hour and a half, now. These cannibals will butcher the lot of them and practice their soccer skills with the severed heads. Leave, run, any direction just don’t stop. Dito to Yezidis and any Kurd or Shiite who ends up in ISIS territory. The UN is only good for yelling at Israel, they will not do anything to defend you.
ISIS will not be dislodged by an air campaign. Troops on the ground in both Iraq and Syria (lines on old maps, no longer nations) are the only thing that will stop these butchers. But the American public is in no mood to fight another war in the ME, this time side by side with our dear Iranian allies.
Prayer for Iraq
O God, who art the unsearchable abyss of peace,
the ineffable sea of love, the fountain of blessings
and the bestower of affection,
who sendest peace to those that receive it;
Open to us this day the sea of thy love
and water us with plenteous streams
from the riches of thy grace
and from the most sweet springs of thy kindness.
Make us children of quietness and heirs of peace,
enkindle in us the fire of thy love;
sow in us thy fear;
strengthen our weakness by thy power;
bind us closely to thee and to each other
in our firm and indissoluble bond of unity:
Syrian Clementine Liturgy (in: For all God’s people; p. 73)
Litany for Iraq
For lasting peace in this ancient land – From you, O Lord.
For wisdom and compassion for all in authority – From you, O Lord.
For comfort for families separated or bereaved – From you, O Lord.
For the release of captives – From you, O Lord.
For safety and security for minority communities.
For refreshment for the weary and healing for the sick – From you, O Lord.
For continuing faithfulness of the ancient churches of this land – From you, O Lord.
For tenacity of spirit for small Christian groups – From you, O Lord.
For the mutual enrichment and support of those of different Christian traditions – From you, O Lord.
You, Lord of all, we confess;
You, Lord Jesus, we glorify;
For you are the life of our bodies
And you are the Saviour of our souls.
The response in the litany and this hymn both come from the Chaldean liturgy. The ancient hymn celebrates Christ the source of resurrection in all situations of death and deprivation. (in: With All God’s People, p. 21, 22)
We could use a 21st century crusade. Given what the local ruling families are doing with Israel and Hamas I suspect they’d be welcomed.
Her in sweden a professor in political science told a newspaper that it was rascist to be against ISIS.
WOMAN: "ISIS BEHEADING CHRISTIANS BY THE THOUSANDS OH BOY I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!"
ISIS put out a video of one of those beheadings on YouTube. Just could not bring myself to watch it.
Islam is a war plan.
A shallow character for shallow idiots.
> Christians flee their homes with only the clothes on their

A poignant question that I think we will have to answer soon right here in the States.
ISIS is acting very irresponsibly!
Is the US still funding these "pro democracy" rebels in Syria?
Exactly so.....lol...lecture,,,just a lecture.

Just received this message from a crisis relief partner of Mercury One who is on the ground in Iraq helping deliver much needed aid.
He said that ISIS militants are only 10 minutes away from where they are serving refugees. He goes on to say, “Thousands more refugees fled into the city last night. UN evacuated it’s station. Our team is remaining to serve as best as can for now.” Please pray for these and other courageous volunteers and all those who are suffering around the globe from such human tragedy.
Just got another message moments ago. Some reports of the systematic beheading of kids by ISIS. PRAY!!!!
The Islamic State is selling women.
Heavenly Father, we come before you and praise you. There is none greater then you. May your glory be known. Please protect these Christians, put your angels around them to minister to them, give them strength and provide for them. Let it be to your glory, we pray, In Jesus name Amen
Amen and amen.
Truly a horror. A horror.
“We could use a 21st century crusade. Given what the local ruling families are doing with Israel and Hamas I suspect theyd be welcomed.”
Over the decades I stopped listening to priests and preachers condemning the Crusades.
When they start that bs, I stop them and say, “If the crusades had not happened, none of us would be alive today and attending a Christian religious services.”
None have tried to repute what I said.
This is part of the Islamic serial killers overall plan:
1. Destroy Israel and kill all Jews.
2. Kill all Christians and seize their properties.
Most rabid liberals have zero problems with #1 and #2. They hate real Jew and Christians.
Here in the US all the Christians I know are heavily armed and would not turn the other cheek, but alas over there they are unarmed and unorganized.
You’re right. History’s being taught all wrong. It’s Christianity and the absolute nuclear family that created Western Civ, not anything else. We have living examples of where other religions, cultures and family systems lead. The most common family system is tribal - it didn’t work for the American Indians, Africans, ME or SA or CA or Asia.
The industrial revolution is a function of Christian values and the absolute nuclear family. We owe the jutes and Germans a lot. Go look at world GDP and you’ll see the massive explosion in welfare and wealth. That came from England and later the US. That’s history.
The Yazidis, BTW, follow an ancient religion with ties to Zoroastrianism. Muslims refer to them as devil worshipers. I had never heard of this group and while I am grateful for the food drop, it struck me very strange that christians were set aside, once again, in the rationale behind the emergency food drop.
