That’s who. But this was not in 2014 or 2015 as ISIS marched from village to city massacring the innocent along the way. 4 This was years before the ISIS guerilla war had recruited as many as two hundred thousand serial killers5 with the intent of hunting Christians, Yazidis, and others, and slaughtering them with less care than butchers give to sheep. 6 Yet, this much-publicized attack in 2010 wasn’t even the beginning.

Presently, every church in the country that is still operating has constructed a wall around the building. The walls are “blast walls” so that the effect of car bombs can be diminished because it’s no longer a matter of “if” but a matter of “when” they’ll be attacked. For many years there were warning signs everywhere that these radicals had one intended goal: wiping out Christianity entirely from the region of its birth.
