Dear Friends:

I’m not in the behavior of quoting Osama bin Laden in The Social Conservative Assessment, but in light of the activities in Iraq from Christians and other spiritual minorities, the words and phrases of this devout mass assassin look apt: “There are only a few choices in Islam: both inclined submission or payment of the jizya, through physical though not spiritual, submission to the authority of Islam or the sword — for it is not proper to allow him (an infidel) reside. The subject is summed up for every man or woman alive: Both submit, or dwell underneath the suzerainty of Islam, or die.”

Not everybody would accept his interpretation of the Quran, but definitely the jihadists in Iraq do. Here’s how the highly regarded journal Overseas Plan describes a single Iraqi Christian’s story: “Salwan, an engineer and father of two from Mosul (mentioned that) when he read that France was completely ready to welcome displaced Christians, he joined the extended queue of men and women in Erbil applying for asylum. Before long, he hopes to wave goodbye to his lifelong residence. ‘There is no foreseeable future for Christians in Iraq,’ he explained. ‘Christians in Iraq are over’.”

What can Christians in The usa do? Groups like Samaritan’s Purse and the Knights of Columbus are operating to offer help to the Christians who have fled from their houses as the wave of Islamist terror continues. We can give to them, but we must also pray for these who determine as followers of Jesus as they experience such fantastic reduction and, in some cases, such wonderful brutality. And we must pray for their persecutors, that they would change from violence and alternatively find accurate peace in Christ.

Sincerely,

Rob Schwarzwalder
