Muslim terrorists mark the homes of Christians — like Nazis marked Jewish businesses in Germany.

Over the weekend, Islamic State terrorists in Mosul gave Christians an ultimatum over their future under Sharia law. They were told they could convert to Islam; pay a “jizya” tax, which renders them second-class citizens or they could be killed by the sword.

According to The Daily Caller:

The Islamic State (IS), formerly known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), has told Iraqi Christians in the city of Mosul that they have to accept Islam or die, CNN reports.

IS made the announcement on July 18 through mosques, loudspeakers and leaflets telling Christians that they have until noon July 19 to leave the city or else. According to Aleteia, “there is nothing between us and them except the sword!”

The Sunni militant group claims they made the warning because they wanted to meet with Christian leaders to tell them the rules of the caliphate, specifically that Christians who didn’t convert to Islam would have to pay a special tax, known as the jizya, or die. Christian leaders didn’t show up to the meeting.

Chaldean Auxiliary Bishop Saad Sirop of Baghdad told Aleita that IS’s announcement was “shocking.”

In response, many Christians are now fleeing from Mosul and seeking refuge in areas controlled by the Kurds. The London Telegraph reports that Mosul is now being cleansed of Christians are escaping on foot in the searing summer heat.

Bishop Yosip Benjamin, who lives in the city of Tel Keif, described the plight of these Christians: “We’re providing people with shelter, food and water – people don’t have anything left and they can’t travel without the money to buy tickets.

He said the town’s Christians were fearful of suffering the same fate as those in Mosul. “We’re being threatened everyday,” he said. “Now, we don’t have anything left but our faith. It’s like life has stopped, and we are so tired.”

Islamic State terrorists are also marking the homes of Christians in other areas of Iraq with a symbol indicating “Nasara” or “Nazarene.”
