There were 15,000 Christians in Mosul, Iraq before ISIS took control of the third largest Iraqi city in 2014.
Now there are just 40 Christians left.
Before ISIS, Mosul was home to 15,000 Christians. In July, Mosul was home to about 40. Any questions?
“This cultural genocide, thanks to the indifference of Europeans and many Western Christians more worried about not appearing ‘Islamophobic’ than defending their own brothers, [has] sadly worked,” The Gatestone Institute wrote.
Mosul, the third-largest city in Iraq and home to one of the largest Christian populations in the region before the rise of, and persecution by, ISIS, now has the reputation of celebrating Christmas, minus the Christians. And yes, political correctness — fear of calling out Islam for what it often is — is in large part to blame.
The Voice of the Martyrs lists nine major radical Islamic groups, including Al Shabab, Boko Haram, al Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood, ISIS and the Taliban, responsible for persecuting Christians from Afghanistan to Kenya to Libya.
And in America, it’s become this, a headline from The Tennessee Star: “Miss Iraq Says Ilhan Omar Exporting ‘Muslim Brotherhood Agenda’ to America.”
Former Miss Iraq, Sarah Idan, went on to say, during an interview on “The Sara Carter Show” that was widely reported, “Ilhan Omar does not represent me as a Muslim, does not represent millions of Muslims in the Middle East. You know, like in Arab countries, we call her the Muslim Brotherhood.”
But be careful how you speak about Rep. Omar. As Jeanine Pirro learned, after her employer Fox News chastised her questioning of Omar’s ability to simultaneously embrace both Islamic principles and the U.S. Constitution, too much talk can get you suspended.
