Religion Of Thievery: ISIS Caliphate Invades Monastery, Steals “Everything” From Iraqi Christians

Those at the monastery were fortunate that the ISIS militants didn’t also take their lives …

Revelation 9:21, “And they did not repent of their murders or their sorceries [“φαρμακεία” – idolatry] or their sexual immorality or their thefts.”

WorldWatch Monitor – “After every known Christian is reported to have left Mosul, Islamic State fighters, IS, have now taken over a monastery near the largely Christian town of Qaraqosh, 32 miles southeast of Mosul.

 According to Agence France Presse IS expelled its three resident monks, a cleric and a few families living there, ordering them to leave on foot with nothing but their clothes.

 Members of the self-proclaimed ‘Islamic Caliphate’ stormed the ancient fourth-century monastery Mar (Saint) Behnam, run by the Syriac Catholic church on Sunday July 20.

 ‘You have no place here anymore, you have to leave immediately,’ a member of the Syriac clergy quoted the Sunni militants as telling the monastery’s residents.

 According to AFP the monks walked several miles before being picked up by armed Kurdish fighters who drove them to Qaraqosh.

 The BBC reported that Syriac Catholic leaders have said priceless manuscripts, about both the history of Iraq and the Church, are now at risk in the monastery.

 Militants of IS are reported to have killed Dr. Mahmoud Al-Asali, a professor of Law at the University of Mosul on July 21.

 According to Ankawa.com, Al-Asali, a Muslim, was killed for objecting to IS looting and destroying Iraqi Christians’ possessions in Mosul, but WWM could not independently verify this.

 The office and residence of the Syrian Catholic Archbishop of Mosul, Yohanna Petros Moshe (in one building) has been burned down.

He is now in Qaraqosh where World Watch Monitor spoke to him: ‘My concern now is how to feed and shelter all the people who have fled’ he told us.

Syrian Catholic priest Nizar Semaan, who works with Archbishop Moshe, said to Agenzia Fides that the international community has a ‘disturbing passivity to what is happening in that area.’

Semaan continued, ‘For example, the time has come to include these groups in the list of terrorist organizations condemned by international bodies, and above all it is necessary to make public the names of the countries and forces that finance them. Intelligence agencies and the governments of various countries certainly know where certain weapons and money, that keep these groups going, come from. It would be enough to stop the flow for a month, and these groups would not have any more force.’

He also said it is necessary to involve leaders and followers of Sunni Islam in an effort to isolate the jihadist groups.

On Friday, the Al Qaeda splinter group IS issued an ultimatum to Iraqi Christians living in Mosul. They said by Saturday July 19 at noon (Iraqi time) they must convert to Islam, pay a fine or face ‘death by the sword.'” Read more.
