Archbishop Nikodimos Daoud: We don’t even have knives. How can we defend ourselves if we don’t have weapons of any kind? When those [ISIS] takfirists come to get you… They reject the other, and say that they want to die in order to get their 72 virgins and eternal boys. We don’t have concepts of this type. We have pens, paper, culture, and knowledge. We don’t have anything to fight with. A Christian cannot live where law does not prevail. We can only live in a place governed by law. Where there is no law to protect us and guarantee our rights, we cannot live, because we have no weapons, and we were not brought up – by our religion, society, and family – on the culture of blood, killing, and plunder.

A long time Democrat, Kirsten Powers, urges President Obama to end the deafening silence and callousness towards the genocide of the Christian community in Iraq. Powers, formerly an official in the Clinton administration, is now an on-air personality on Fox News, representing a liberal point of view. Like many in Congress and in the general American population, she cannot understand why the plight of the Yazidis so quickly provoked a response from the President, when the much larger population of Christians has suffered greater brutality for months, in the face of total silence and apathy on the part of the President.

There’s finally some good news to report about Sudanese Christian Meriam Ibrahim, her two children and her husband. Ibrahim had languished in a Sudan prison for months on charges of “apostacy” against Islam.
She faced 100 lashes and then death by hanging. While in prison in chains, she gave birth to a baby girl.
Writing for Britain’s Daily Telegraph, Harriet Alexander said that Meriam Ibrahim, 27, was sentenced to hang for apostasy on May 15, when she was heavily pregnant with her second child. Less than two weeks later she gave birth to Maya – but the prison authorities refused to remove the shackles on her legs.

Christian Father Commits Suicide After ISIS Members Rape Wife And Daughter In Front Of Him Because He Couldn’t Pay Poll TaxJul 1st, 2014 | By Editor2
A Christian father who watched his wife and daughter get brutally raped by members of the militant group, Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) because he couldn’t pay them a poll tax in Mosul, Iraq, killed himself under the weight of the trauma this past weekend.
A report from the Assyrian International News Agency said ISIS began enforcing Islamic laws in the northern Iraq city which they overran on June 10.
Sudanese Christian Meriam Ibrahim, who faced death by hanging for “apostacy” against Islam, is currently living in safety at the U.S. Embassy in Khartoum.
Ibrahim had been released from prison earlier this week and thought she was free. When she and her family tried to get on a plane to leave Sudan, 40 security forces surrounded them and re-arrested her on bogus charges of forging travel documents. She was then re-released, but then sped off to the Embassy.
U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) celebrated reports today that 27-year-old Meriam Ibrahim, the wife of an America citizen, will no longer face the death sentence and will be freed from captivity in Sudan. Ibrahim, who gave birth in jail and has been imprisoned with her two young children, previously faced the death sentence in Sudan after refusing to disavow her Christian faith.
