Islamists in Iraq to Christians: ‘If Anyone Decides to Reopen His Store, We Will Kill Him’


Islamist Note to Christians reads, "If anyone decides to reopen his store, we will kill him"

Islamist Note to Christians reads, “If anyone decides to reopen his store, we will kill him”

Robert Spencer’s Jihad Watch has posted an update to this story. The Islamist campaign against all things contrary to Sharia Law continues, and to drive home just how dead serious they are about preventing Christians in Zakho and elsewhere from buying and selling products, notes have been left for Christians informing them that if they reopen their destroyed stores, they will be killed …

“… Islamic extremists targeted Christian shops and activities in the Kurdistan region of Iraq: in Zakho, 470 miles from Baghdad, near the border with Turkey, a fundamentalist group incited by the local imam’s sermon devastated dozens of liquor stores, a hotel and massage centres, injuring at least 30 people. The attacks have continued even in the following days in Dohok, where three shops and a community centre belonging to Chaldean Christians were burnt.

Christian sources for AsiaNews, anonymous for security reasons, add that ‘in Baghdad liquor stores are subject to threats’, the managers have received threatening letters, which state that the exercise ‘will be blown up.’ The attacks are the result of a ‘campaign’ that targets ‘all that is contrary to Shariah,’ promoted by Islamists who want to radicalize the country. Unfortunately, the source adds, there is no ‘moderate movement’ capable of containing the fundamentalist drift.” Read more.
