Should an ancient, peaceful people be allowed to simply perish without comment, without objection? It seems an almost absurd question to ask in these modern times, does it not? Well then, we object. We object that one faith should have the right to kill another. We object.

We Christians should not remain passive and simply pray for the best. We too have a critical role to play, a role which brings us back to the beginnings of our faith.

…And so we say to our Muslim neighbors, learn this from us. Let us help you heal. Your wounds are as deep as ours. We know this. We pray for your healing. Let us heal our wounded and tortured country together.

Can the few remaining Iraqi Christians still make a difference?
