ISIS Psychopaths Expelled All Iraqi Christians from Mosul: Their Stories Shared in a Video ~ (Eng. subt.)
This video shows excerpts from an interview with Iraqi Christians from Mosul who fled their city after the Wahhabi terrorist group, the Islamic State – formerly known as ISIL (Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant), gave the city’s Christians an ultimatum of a few hours to either leave their homes without taking anything or to get killed.
Earlier reports had indicated that ISIL gave two additional options, to convert to Islam or to pay a Jizya “protection tax”; however, those two did not seem to be mentioned by the people in this interview.
Iraqi Christians are fleeing Mosul after Islamist militants threatened to kill them unless they converted to Islam or paid the Jizya “protection tax”.
A statement issued by the Islamic State – formerly known as the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) – was read out at the city’s mosques and flyers were handed out with the statement. It called on Christians to comply by midday on Saturday or face death if they did not leave the northern city.
ISIL has control of large parts of Syria and Iraq and said last month it was creating an Islamic Caliphate.
The ultimatum cited a historic contract known as “dhimma,” under which non-Muslims in Islamic societies who refuse to convert are offered protection if they pay a fee, called a “jizya”.
“We offer them three choices: Islam; the dhimma contract – involving payment of jizya; if they refuse this they will have nothing but the sword,” the ISIL statement said.
“Christian families are on their way to Dohuk and Erbil,” in the neighbouring autonomous region of Kurdistan, Patriarch Louis Sako told the AFP news agency.
“For the first time in the history of Iraq, Mosul is now empty of Christians,” he said.
The patriarch, one of the most senior Christian clerics in Iraq, said militants had been seen tagging Christian houses with the letter N for “Nasara”, a term used for Christians in the Koran.
Saudi ISIL Militant Justifies his Group’s Recent Attack on Mosul’s Christians
After the Islamic State (aka “Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant” or ISIL) terrorist group recently forced all Iraqi Christians from their ancient city of Mosul after giving them an ultimatum, a Saudi militant from the group posts a video in which he justifies the actions that his group has taken. He also attacks other Muslim scholars who condemned ISIL’s actions as having hearts filled with humiliation and shame.
ISIL has also recently blown up a Mosul landmark, the tomb of the biblical prophet Jonah, under claims of preventing “idol worship”. ISIL has also ordered the barbaric practice of female genital mutilation.
