Viewing conflicts through the eye of Counterinsurgency COIN – Since 2007

Iraqi Muslims ask Christian neighbors to come home.

In Dora, Iraq many Christians fled the area after al Qaeda had started to harass and kill local Christians and Muslims.

“Today, Muslims mostly filled the front pews of St John’s. Muslims who want their Christian friends and neighbors to come home. The Christians who might see these photos likely will recognize their friends here. The Muslims in this neighborhood worry that other people will take the homes of their Christian neighbors, and that the Christians will never come back. And so they came to St John’s today in force, and they showed their faces, and they said, “Come back to Iraq. Come home.” They wanted the cameras to catch it. They wanted to spread the word: Come home. Muslims keep telling me to get it on the news. “Tell the Christians to come home to their country Iraq.”” Michael Yon

Many Christians have fled to Jordan, Syria, and to North Iraq (Kurdish region). Recently the Catholic Church in Dora has been reopened. Muslims and Christians, Sunni and Shia, all worked together to reopen the Church. I know many people I talk with here in the USA find it hard to believe that there was Christians living in Iraq. Well there is also many other religions represented by the population including Hebrews. In fact there is also some very interesting religions in Iraq. The Yazidi are interesting and found mostly in Northern Iraq. In Southeast Iraq there is religious followers of John the Baptist, they still do the Baptisms in the same river for the past 2,000 + years (I am not totally sure on the date – when was John The Baptist ??). Many Christians had fled to Jordan, Syria, and to North Iraq (Kurdish region) after al Qaeda had taken control over the area. – Ian Bach

Anyways very interesting stuff and I hope you read Michael Yons latest Article including many pictures of the event. It’s very heartwarming and the mothers always want pictures of their children. There is also an Iraqi interputer nickname “ice” he is an Iraqi Christian, and you can see the pride in this community. “Come Home” Click here..

Here is a portion of Michael Yon’s latest Dispatch from Dora, Iraq.

“LTC Stephen Michael at St John’s. LTC Michael told me today that when al Qaeda came to Dora, they began harassing Christians first, charging them “rent.” It was the local Muslims, according to LTC Michael, who first came to him for help to protect the Christians in his area. That’s right. LTC Michael told me more than once that the Muslims reached out to him to protect the Christians from al Qaeda. Real Muslims here are quick to say that al Qaeda members are not true Muslims. From charging “rent,” al Qaeda’s harassment escalated to killing Christians, and also Muslims. Untold thousands of Christians and Muslims fled Baghdad in the wake of the darkness of civil war. Most of the Christians are gone now; having fled to Syria, Jordan or Northern Iraq………” M. Yon

About Ian Bach

Independent Online Terrorist Hunter I teach people how to hunt down and shut down the Bad guys web sites. I also teach about the various countries and cultures. Like most cases it is a small group of bsd eggs that in this case call themselves Muslims but in actual fact they are more like how KKK call themselves ",True Christisians". But in both cases / groups they preach a perverted and twisted view a religion. In the case of ISIS, all Qaeda, al Nusra, and the rest of the terrorists who claim to be true Muslims most of these groups follow the Wahhabi teachings. They are almost all Sunni and their goal is global domination. Yet they must be very bad at math and history. Since most Muslims prefer a separation of church and state and also mist are against Shari's Law. Esp the twisted and overly exaggerated form of Sharia Law that the Wahhabi and other bad guys use. I have studied terrorism, insurgencies, and the best tried and proven methods that work to fight terrorism. My Blogs have many links and articles that can show you who are the best and most knowledgeable people in the fields or counterinsurgency and counter terrorism. When I find great practitioner's I always listen to them to find out who they learned from and who they respect and admire. Thus I am always learning new stuff from the best and most successful in their fields of knoeledge. I strive to be an open and ethical source of information, I have met many awesome, kind, caring, and loving wonderful people many who I am close friends with now from Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Turkey, Iran, and many from S.E. Asia which also has a high percent of their populations that are Muslim.We must always strive to be aware people are not any one particular religion via that's what they chose to be, instead most people are a particular religion because that's what their parents and/or county is. I was raised Catholic but because I became Interested in magic ,(illusion - smoke n mirrors) and science which lead me to study many religions, and I would call myself an atheist. Yet sometimes when I lose my keys ZI find myself praying "Hail Marys" and a few "Our Fathers" which most always aides me in finding my keys. My belief is that if I just frantically look around for my krys, good luck it takes me for ever. But by saying these prayers it is like s sort of meditation and my mind becomes more calm, which is why it helps my find my keys.

    Yes it is nice that we have a few sources of good news.

    Mass Media makes more money showing bad News and celebretees gone wild. Hmm wonder why we only see crap on the TV and internet???

    When we review News we must review the source. Ethics in Media is rare Michael Yon has ethics.
