These words, spoken by an Iraqi woman to an Assyrian television network, must spur us to do something to help our brothers and sisters besieged by Islamist terrorists in Iraq and Syria.
Please sign this petition to your country's government and the United Nations, from Barnabas Aid:
We, the undersigned, call upon our government and the United Nations:
- to intervene actively to protect Christians and other
minorities in the Middle East, especially Iraq and Syria, from genocide, persecution and terror;
- to allow Christian refugees into our countries and to take active steps to promote humanitarian asylum and a positive welcome;
- to support and give humanitarian aid to Christians in Iraq and Syria, and elsewhere in the Middle East, and to provide assistance to those fleeing as refugees.
