It doesn't actually matter if Christianity is theoretically as bad as Islam.
I don’t happen to believe that it is, and I’ve got considerable evidence to back that up, but even if I agreed that the text of the Bible in the text of the Koran contained equally questionable passages, it wouldn’t change the fact that in the modern-day we do not have large groups of militant Christians carrying out those questionable laws. That’s where the problem is. Arguing that Christianity or other religions are theoretically as bad doesn’t mean anything when the problem is with Islamist terror. Ignoring that problem doesn’t make it go away.
On Tuesday 4 am the Islamic State militants invaded the Christian Assyrian villages of Tal Tamr and Hermes nestled along the banks of the Khabur River in #Hassakeh province and abducted as many as 90 #Assyrian Christians, including women and children, after overrunning several small villages in northeast Syria.
Nuri Kino, the head of the activist group A Demand For Action – which focuses on religious minorities in the Middle East – said the militants took between 70 and 100 Assyrians captive. Kino said his organization based its information on conversations with villagers who fled the onslaught, as well as their relatives.
Kino added that some 3,000 people managed to flee the onslaught and have sought refuge in the cities of Hassakeh and the provincial capital of #Qamishli in Syria.
According to #Syrian Catholic Archbishop Monsignor Jean Bahnan some who didn’t manage at the beginning to flee into Syria tried their luck with the #Turkish borders and the turkish authorities denied them access while in return they facilitated the entry of ISIS terrorists into Syria through the same borders. Sending those families back who some managed later to get to Hasakeh province in Syria while others were killed or captured by #ISIS.
#Turkey also threatened months ago to hit down any Syrian Army plane that hits #terrorist places near its borders. But how can we count on other forces since just a few miles away the so called NATO ISIS fighting planes were targeting worthless locations of ISIS while allowing them to roam freely and kill all those villagers.
Most young christian men in the village decided to join the Syrian Army forces and are fighting ISIS right now to defend their town.
#Moscow says it is worried about those captured since just a few days ago the ISIS beheaded 21 Egyptian christians.“ Will we continue standing firm in defense of the #Christians who are subjected to oppression and harassment by terrorists… and we urge other countries to join the Russian efforts,” A statement by the Russian foreign Ministry said.
Pictures show one of the many churches ISIS burned down since Tuesday it is Al Hermes Church one of the oldest Assyrian Churches in History! Others are for families that fled to Hasakeh city in Syria.
The old man in the picture shed tears as he was describing how they shot his 1 year old grandson right in front of his eyes.
Another #genocide is taking place in Syria right now by foreign backed terrorists will the world just stand still and silent like always?
