Islamists from ISIS burnt out the insidse and remove the cross from the Armenian Catholic Church of the Martyrs in Raqqa, replacing the crosses with ISIS flags.
In the last month, ISIS have destroyed most of the Ancient Churches in their territory, focing the Christians of their ancient homelands to leave the area with the choice of “Convert, Leave or Die,”
As of 16:55 GMT today (20/7/14) the last Christian family has left Mosul, after over 100 families who refused to leave were forcibly removed from their homes, many dying in the process.
Over 1400 years ago the Christians in this area feared their deaths with the rise of the “Heresy of the Ishmaelites” and demands of the Dhimmi system, now this has returned in an ever more violent fashion.
Lord Have Mercy
