Please Help Christians of Iraq

By: Ashraf Ramelah
Voice of the Copts

Mission: The Christians of Iraq are requesting special protection due to religious persecution from fundamentalist terrorist groups who seek to harm, harass, threaten and persecute the Christian minority of Iraq.


Christians have long been the target of persecution in the Middle East due to their religion. The largest and most well-known massacre was in 1914, commonly known as the Armenian Genocide, where over 2 million Christians, including Armenian, Greek Orthodox, Syriac Orthodox, Assyrian and Chaldean, were brutally murdered at the hands of fundamental Islamists.

Most recently, on Sunday October 31, 2010, a Syrian Catholic church was the target of another massacre at the hands of terrorists acting on behalf of Al Qaeda in Iraq. Killing 58 Christians and injuring more than 70 others, Islamic militants stormed into the Baghdad church, taking all hostage and ruthlessly murdering many priests, men, women and children inside.


The goal of The Black March is to bring awareness of the suffering of the indigenous Christians of Iraq and secure their protection. The peaceful gathering will honor the lives of those lost in Baghdad and aim to prevent another brutal massacre of Christians in the Middle East.
