A Christian genocide symbolized by one letter

Posted by Fredsvenn on August 14, 2014

Jesus did not make a speech or preach a sermon, as we should understand it. By uttering half in speech and half in song the phrases over whose compressed wisdom and memorable form he had labored for long years, he taught his people and the world.  - Gilbert Highet


Mark of Solidarity

This is the letter “N” in Arabic. It is being used to brand Christians in Iraq who are being persecuted and murdered by ISIS terrorists. The letter “N” stands for Nazarene. The ن is now being shared on social media as a symbol of solidarity with the Iraqi Christians forced to flee their homes.

While the world’s gaze was on Gaza and Syria, the situation of Christians in northern Iraq have taken a sharp turn for the worse, with thousands forced to flee their homes. The situation is so dire that a social media campaign has been launched to try to reclaim the very symbol of persecution against these Christians and to try and raise awareness about their fate.

With a ultimatum to either convert to Islam, submit to their radical rule and pay a religious levy, or face death by the sword, hardline Sunni militants of the ISIL have been consolidating their control, driving Christians out of town after town. Of those who have fled, some have been robbed at gunpoint by Islamists on the road leaving the city.
