Belz writes of Baghdad’s Dora neighborhood, from which tens of thousands of Christians fled overnight, unlikely to return. One resident said that when terrorists learned he had five children, they said, “Fine, three for you and two for us.” Letters (containing bullets) went out, warning, “We know your house and we know your family.
