Iran-Backed Forces Persecuting Christians Who Survived ISIS, Kurdish Parliamentarian Says

Iran-backed Shia paramilitary forces operating in northern Iraq have been accused by a Kurdish parliamentarian of engaging in “flagrant injustice” toward Christians in the region which until earlier this year was in the grip of ISIS terrorists.

Wahida Yaqo Hormuz — a Christian representative in the parliament of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) — said she had alerted the Vatican and international human rights groups to what she called the “Shia-ification” of the Nineveh Plains, where the northern Iraqi city of Mosul is located. Conquered by ISIS in 2014, Iraqi government forces retook the city in July.


On Monday, meanwhile, Hashd al-Shaabi denied that it had withdrawn from two key regions in Nineveh. Kurdish Peshmerga clashed with Hashd al-Shaabi fighters in the middle of October, as Iraqi government and Iranian forces seized more than 50 percent of the territory liberated from ISIS by the Kurds.

“A number of media outlets talk about the pullout of the Hashd al-Shaabi forces from Zummar and Rabiaa and their surrounding areas, but this news is untrue and baseless,” Ahmed al-Asadi, a representative of Hashd al-Shaabi, claimed.

I'm sure the U.N. will be all over this PDQ.

Unfortunate for them, but it is a much better fate than being under the heel of the murderous ISIS. And the issue of the Ninevah Plains is a situation of no importance to American security.

From that website:

“The Algemeiner

The fastest growing Jewish newspaper in America, the NEW Algemeiner serves as a valiant media voice addressing the most compelling issues of our time, with vision, integrity and moral clarity.

The Algemeiner is a pioneering newspaper, setting trends while offering stimulating content, breaking news and insightful analysis on contemporary events. This bold approach includes investigative reporting, thought-provoking features and deeply felt opinions, presenting unconventional and unique voices on politics, as well as on the social and cultural life of the American and international Jewish community.

Unique in today’s Jewish media, The Algemeiner was created in 1972 to publish important stories with an international scope for a global audience; the new Algemeiner extends that vision for the 21st century.”

Algemeiner is a Jewish publication with a neocon policy outlook. They are no friends of Middle Eastern Christians. This article is part of a larger propaganda push by neocons trying to stir up hatred of Iran for the purpose of getting America involved in another Iraq style war.

Christians across the Middle East are in a de facto alliance with Shiites and secularists against Sunni terrorists. Kurds are Sunnis and have a bad relationship with Christians historically.

Here is a good example of the kind of neocon garbage Algemeiner publishes:

hmmm. Learn something new every day. Maybe I should just skip the news altogether and keep reading the Bible. At least I know that is true. I spend way too much time here.

I’m addicted to the apple, knowing, knowing, knowing, but knowing what? All knowledge will pass away someday. sorry, just having a reality check.
