Chaldean Christian leader: ISIS 'Systematically Beheading' Children In Iraq
A prominent Christian leader of the Chaldean community unveiled the "systematic beheading of children" and other horrendous crimes committed by ISIS. He said that the Sunni extremists are committing genocide against Christians in Iraq and with the aim to instill the Sharia Law as the law of the land.
In the interview with CNN's Jonathan Mann, Chaldean-American businessman Mark Arabo said that the "world hasn't seen an evil like this for generations."
"There is a park in Mosul, where [ISIS] they actually beheaded children and put their heads on a stick and have them in the park," he explained. "More children are getting beheaded, mothers are getting raped and killed, and fathers are being hung."...
Pennned, surely actions are far too little too late, so are you saying that because of that they should do nothing? How come you have no moral outrage at ISIS or the Hamas, just for Americans and Evangelicals?

Hundreds protest persecution of Christians by ISIS in Iraq "He will have compassion on the poor and needy, and the lives of the needy he will save. He will rescue their life from oppression and violence, and their blood will be precious in his sight;" ~ Psalm 72:13-14 NASB
you are such a kindhearted sister. but I'm not so glad about this. the evangelical organizations didn't bat an eyelash when it started in Libya and Syria, when it was state sanctioned to arm them and send them out. now that it is so blaringly obvious that the us is sitting back and the kids are getting their heads chopped off in mass, and its the very end of the line, the end of years (since Bush) of CHristian martyrdom, the end of the line, when very few are left, and us pretends to get involved on the "good guy" side, then the organizations all of a sudden care.
its like showing up to the party at midnight. its like showing up to a baseball game in the 9th inning. its like showing up to the wedding after the toast. its embarrassing.
We know that many evil things will take place in the last days, but what will it be like after the church is raptured and there is no restraint on sin. We can rest assured that these people and indeed all who reject Christ will receive their deserved punishment when Jesus returns to reign.

But for God's grace we have not hated to the point of such savagery. May The Spirit move and save them. Remember, God sent Jonah to Ninevah and they repented. They were savages too.
Amen, and the Apostle Paul, when he was known as Saul, was involved in the systematic killing of Christians ~ may the "Road to Damascus" run through Iraq!
May God give us the wisdom how to pray for our brothers and sisters in Iraq!! May we think of them, as we too are suffering with them!
"Remember the prisoners, as though in prison with them, and those who are ill-treated, since you yourselves also are in the body." ~ Hebrews 13:3 NASB

Horrendous, brutal, disgusting acts of savagery, and.all in the name.of Allah. This was hearbreaking to read and difficult to comprehend that people who are capable of such attrocities are walking this earth. I understand free will, but I wonder at times why God doesn't Intervene to stop such heinous crimes. I wonder why Satans leash is so long that even children would be allowed to be raped, butchered, and their heads hung on poles in parks. I know they will all pay someday, but I wonder why angels don't get involved, etc. I know the Yazidis aren't true Christians, but I do wonder why this brutal sect is being allowed to flourish. ISIS (Al Q), says they are devils and commiting these attrocities in the name of Allah, but it appears to me that it's a front and they are simply blood thirsty and fully enjoying what they are doing. I wish I could help and hope the US is able to open the borders and retake the towns.
