Skip to comments.'The Situation Is Very Vulnerable': Iran-Backed Militias Ethnically Cleansing Northen Iraq

The official story is that northern Iraq is at peace. The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) has largely been defeated; the Iraqi Army and its allies are in charge. But for Christians, the persecution continues.
Those who can are getting out. Those who stay are preparing themselves for more violence. "Things are bad more than any other time," Fr Behnam Benoka tells me at his church in Bartella, a ghost town protected, if that's the right word, by soldiers with Kalashnikovs. "It's harder even than before Isil."

Christian persecution in China, Iran, Syria, etc, etc, etc, ... and to some degree even now in Canada and the UK of all places.
Anything that forms the basis of the free Western world is under attack by radical leftist communists. As in Marxism, anything that represent power (faith in this case) is the enemy. Likewise wealth, freedom, arming, etc are all threats to the communist ideology where the state is God and has all power OVER THE PEOPLE. Nothing new, but always needs restating.
Someone out there sees a really tasty war that THEY don't want to fight.
"Let's him AND YOU have a rowdy, bloody fight."
We have enough problems here to deal with ... this is NOT our problem. Maybe they should make more effort to get along... whatever.
Somebody should tell the Pope about this. On second thought, never mind. Hes too busy welcoming peaceful Muslim invaders into Europe.
George Bush kicked out the chair from under the Christians in Iraq with his invasion, and Obama and McCain nearly finished them off with their use and support of Islamist “rebels” to go after Assad.
Northern Iraq? I thought we went to war, and spent 5 trillion dollars, to liberate Iraq? Now we have to send 300000 troops back in to do another liberation?
There exist Stupid Weak Christians,
and there are Strong Christians.
Stupid Christians deserve to die.
They are ignorant that Islam is their murderous enemy.
They turn their cheek to evil.
They do not prepare for this evil.
They try to convert their enemy who sells their daughter as whores.
It is their badge of honor to be persecuted.
So be it. Die.
But us Strong Christians will only go down fighting.
We need to send everything we got back to Iraq, NOW!!!
This is the Iranian playbook - it is a long term strategy to take absolute control.
They did it first in the Bekaa Valley of Lebanon, establishing a front group militia (Hizbollah), and gradually purging and corrupting opponents in Lebanese politics.
They have already dominated Diyala Province in Iraq (which borders Iran, and are now extending their purges into the Northern areas where their Shi’ite militias deployed during the fight against ISIS - including the oil-rich area of Kirkuk.
The Iranians have been running death squads in Iraq since the fall of Saddam.
They view Christians as natural allies of the West, and seek to conduct sectarian cleansing of them, in a gradual, covert way - isolating them from political power and economic opportunity, while terrorizing them into flight or submission.
They have a famously sophisticated, long term approach to subverting Governments and societies in the region, where Shi’ite populations exist.
And the neocons at FR could hardly wait to get it on. Warning about this at the time was a shortcut to a zot at the time.
This is not our problem. Not exactly. Societies of Planet Earth are interconnected. What is happening in Iraq is happening in Minnesota and is happening in England. Epidemics in Mexico can easily move to California. Ignorance is not bliss. Be aware of your surroundings. Your car may be next to be high jacked. Lets hope that the HIV virus stays in Africa and does not reach The USA. Oh wait. It is international. Same thing with Moslems and Communist killing Christians. Be aware of your surroundings.
Didn’t the Pope say that religion is the opiate of the people?
... I think you need to reframe your concepts with concepts if marxist-muslim coalition.
Iran-backed Iraqi militias can’t be worse than America&NATO backed Syrian “freedom fighters”
This is the Iranian playbook - it is a long term strategy to take absolute control
They got immense help from George W Bush when he eliminated Irans no 1 enemy, Saddam Hussein
As Trump has pointed out, Saddam was a check on Iran. Ousting him was a gift to Iran.
At the cost of 4000 American lives and trillions of taxpayers dollars
Didnt the Pope say that religion is the opiate of the people?
Marx said it
And George Bush said that invading Iraq would liberate it
Lordy, ain't that the truth! CaL was leading the charge :)
Crusades II is justified.
