Viewing conflicts through the eye of Counterinsurgency COIN – Since 2007
3% of Iraqi population are Christian, thats about 800,000. Ok I hope the below article will wake some anti-war Christians or even average citizens up to understand what may and is happening. First what is happening is the terrorist (this is mainly al Qaeda) have decided to start attacking Christians in Iraq. Attacks on Christians have not been an issue until recently. Most crimes against Christians were kidnappings. Most kidnappings ended in return of the family member. This caused about half to move to the safer and more religious tolerant Kurdistan areas in north Iraq for safety. But now al Qaeda has plans to not only displace the Christians but to wipe them of the face of the earth. They have begun attacks on Christians and Christian leaders. Most intelligence agencies will admit this is an attempt to oust the Christian and work to create an all Muslim terrorist state. The children and followers of John the Baptists live in the east in a beautiful area of Iraq on the river in the map below. Muslim extremists are on a genocidal mission and I hope the News media wakes up soon.

I am writing this article in hopes that people will understand that the terrorists have the same goals as the WW2 Nazi regime. I grew up in a town that when I was in High School there was and still is Neo Nazi gangs. Most of my encounters with them were attached in many ways to the music business. But trust me they “the music business” is only around it for money and not thinking that they are wrecking the faith of Americans citizens and empowering the terrorists. In some towns near me they have also had problems with Neo Nazi’s (basically anarchists) in the Police Departments. A Neo Nazi is a prime example of an easy target person for al Qaeda and other terrorists to turn into extremist, terrorist, or even suicide bombers. I think we may want to get tough on gangs here in America. I believe that America will be further infiltrated just as France and Britain in the past.
The signs are here FBI is catching more and more American citizens committing treasonous acts. We need to be tough on prosecutions to set examples.
If you are wondering why I mention Nazis’ and compare them to Islamic Extremists and Terrorist? Well then I can teach you a ton. Hitler hired, appointed, and dictated investigators, who traveled the world before WW2 for Hitler’s cause to find religious propaganda. Hitler (and of course his experts) cited the lands in Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, and Pakistan as holy lands and home of the Arian race and that the Germans were direct descendents of the pure race. Hitler saw Jews as an impure race that was a wrath and a blemish on the world, and a threat to Hitler’s power
Also Pakistan translates to “Pure Nation”. This caused a lot of the fighting between India and Pakistan what with the split of the original India nation and the pakistan name.
Afghans take pride in being descendants of the Aryans, or to be more precise: Ariana – the Greek pronunciation of the ancient Avestan Airyanem Vaejah or the Sanskrit “Aryavarta”, Land of the Aryans. Today this Old-Persian, and Avestan expression is preserved in the name of the Afghan national airline, Ariana Airlines. The term ‘Ariana Afghanistan’ is still popular amongst many people in the country.
So basically we got a ton of teens and more who want to be little Hitler’s running around and liberals want us to do what? They want us to put our hands in our pockets and look away and then hope it won’t happen to us here? Wake up read the FBI articles, it is like all the nut jobs stopped taking their meds and are crawling out of the closets.
Until we start to win the Propaganda war and expose these Al Qaeda and other terrorists for the liars and thieves, and murderers, which will not stop until the world is ashes. – Ian Bach
I was inspired to write the above info after I read this
article at Iraq Solidarity Campaign
A Catholic priest and three of his assistants were shot dead overnight outside a church in northern Iraq, the local police commander said.
“They finished mass … and the four of them got into the priest’s car to drive away. After they had gone about 100m a car cut them off. Four armed men got out and shot them dead,” he said.
The Catholic news agency Asianews identified the victims as 31-year-old Father Ragheed Ganni and his three assistants.
Last month, the leaders of Iraq’s Christian minority called on the country’s beleaguered government to protect their community from attacks by al-Qaeda-inspired Muslim extremists.
In a joint statement, Patriarch Mar Dinka IV of the Assyrian Church of the East and the Chaldaean Catholic Patriarch Emmanuel Delly of Babylon said Baghdad’s remaining Christians were facing persecution.
They blamed the so-called Islamic State of Iraq, an alliance of Islamist insurgent groups that serves as an al-Qaeda front, for much of the violence.
“Christians in a number of Iraqi regions, especially those under the control of the so-called Islamic State of Iraq, have faced blackmail, kidnapping and displacement,” the May 10 statement said.
Before the US-led invasion of March 2003, there were estimated to be about 800,000 Christians in I
raq, about three per cent of the otherwise largely Muslim population, living mainly in urban centres such as Baghdad.
Although there were some attacks on churches in the immediate aftermath of the overthrow of Saddam Hussein, Iraq’s Christians were not especially targeted while rival Sunni and Shiite Muslim factions went to war.
As a relatively wealthy community, however, many Christians fell prey to kidnap and ransom gangs and many – probably more than half – of them have fled the country or moved to the relative safety of Iraqi Kurdistan.
Now there are reports that Salafist groups such as al-Qaeda, fundamentalists who believe Islam can be renewed by returning to the values of the era of the Prophet Mohammed, are targeting Christians on purely sectarian grounds.
The US Commission on International Religious Freedom, an independent bipartisan government agency, last month voiced concern at the deteriorating situation for freedom of religion and belief in Iraq.
Christian communities now face the threat of eradication in their historic homelands in Iraq under pervasive and severe violence and discrimination at the hands of both government and non-government actors, it warned.
