Iraq: another Christian congregation wiped out….

“1915 there were still 25 % Christians in Turkey, today its 0.2%. That’s the Islamic concept of multiculturalism…”

Death toll rises to 58 in Iraqi jihad attack on church: “The Mujahedeens raided a filthy nest of the nests of polytheism, which has been long taken by the Christians of Iraq as a headquarter for a war against the religion of Islam”

An Iraqi Christian woman (right) holds a picture of her son, who was killed in the October 31 church attack.

The mass-murderers say that this was a counterattack in the Church’s alleged war against Islam. Yet notice how CNN’s headline calls it an “Iraq church standoff,” giving no hint that this was a gratuitous Islamic jihad attack. “Death toll rises to 58 in Iraq church standoff,” by Mohammed Tawfeeq for CNN, November 1, via JW:

Baghdad, Iraq (CNN) — The death toll from a hostage standoff at a Catholic church in Baghdad has risen to 58, police officials with the Iraqi Interior Ministry said Monday.

Seventy-five others were wounded in the attack by armed gunmen Sunday, the officials said, adding that most of the casualties were women and children. Two priests were also among the dead as well as 17 security officers and five gunmen.

The hours-long standoff ended Sunday after Iraqi security forces stormed the Sayidat al-Nejat church. Eight suspects were arrested.

“All the marks point out that this incident carries the fingerprints of al Qaeda,” Iraqi Defense Minister Abdul Qader Obeidi said on state television Sunday.

He said that most of the hostages were killed or wounded when the kidnappers set off explosives inside the church.

At least two of the attackers were wearing explosive vests, which they detonated just minutes before security forces raided the church, the police officials said.

The Islamic State of Iraq later claimed responsibility for the attack through a statement posted on a radical Islamic website. The umbrella group includes a number of Sunni extremist organizations and has ties to al Qaeda in Iraq.

“The Mujahedeens raided a filthy nest of the nests of polytheism, which has been long taken by the Christians of Iraq as a headquarter for a war against the religion of Islam and they were able by the grace of God and His glory to capture those were gathered in and to take full control of all its entrances,” the group said on the website….

  1. One of the best posts written about the attack is from Eastern Liberty. They are two Iraqi Chaldean women still living in Iraq fighting for women’s rights and basic liberties, and of course they’re devastated:

    Iraqi Christians want nothing more than to live side by side with Muslims, after all we’re all just people.
    In my community we have Muslim neighbors & we share their events, and they share ours, both the happy and sad, we exchange food at our holydays, or special occasions, each family helps to clean our street. We get along just fine. Variety is the spice of life, as they say, and the people are Iraq’s mosaic. But to live in fear is to live under darkness. What good is that? What is a life without the sun?

  2. We agree with you Mister Ghost – all people should be living in peace.

  3. Long before this satanic, demonic cult was entrenched in the arab world, Christianity was around. These acts of barbarism just go to prove the type of animals these people are. What surprises me is how these people are allowed to live in our countries and enjoy all our benefits having this evil, wicked mind set. We are not different people but TWO different civilizations and we definitely cannot co-exist.
