In a video-clip released by ISIS in Dijlah Province, Iraq, children are shown undergoing military training, including hand combat, shooting, and simulations of prisoner taking. One of them says: “I swear, we shall conquer Rome, shatter your crosses, and take your women captive.

What is being taught at that mosque? Are investigators simply going to assume that the mosque is “moderate” and that Abdulazeez was “radicalized” elsewhere?

The incursion of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) into western and northern Iraq beginning in December 2013 portended a year of atrocities against Christians and other religious minorities in various parts of the country in 2014.

An estimated 50,000 Christians fled Mosul.
