Juliana Taimoorazy, an Assyrian Christian and Founding President of the Iraqi Christians Relief Council, joined The Reconnect on Tuesday to update us on the situation in the Middle East and the persecuted Church.
Why should we care?
Earlier this year, the Obama Administration finally recognized the fact that ISIS is committing genocide through crucifixion, beheading, immolation, torture, sexual enslavement, mass rape, forced evictions, and additional atrocities. It is now clear to everyone that Islamic State jihadists intentionally target Christians and other religious minorities.
Specifically in regards to the persecuted Church, this violence is being carried out against members of our family: our brothers and sisters in Christ. Together, we are members of one body– the question is do we believe that? And if so, does it compel us to act?
