Radical Islamic Group ISIS Beheading Christian Children in Iraq-Truth!
Summary of eRumor:
Reports have gone viral on the Web alleging that the radical Islamic group ISIS is beheading Christian children in Iraq. The reports also say that the terrorist group is killing every Christian in its sight. One report is alleged to come from Crisis Relief International (CRI).
The source for this story stemmed from a CNN interview of Mark Arabo, national spokesman for Iraqi Christians and Chaldean-American businessman living in San Diego. Arabo told CNN the “evil” conducted by ISIS militants in Iraq has included beheadings of children. Arabo also praised President Barack Obama’s authorization of an intervention to the crisis.
According to an August 7, 2014, article by USA Today, President Obama authorized “‘targeted airstrikes’ if needed to protect U.S. personnel in Iraq, as well as airdrops of food and water to religious minorities in Iraq who are under siege from Islamic militants and trapped on a mountaintop.”
Other reports of Christian persecution have made their way out of Iraq. Canon Andrew White, vicar of the Anglican church in Bagdad, told reporters the 5-year-old son of a founding member of his church was cut in half after an an attack in Qaraqosh, a town southeast of Mosul. The child was baptized by White several years ago. The child was baptized by White several years ago.
The example below was found on the website of the Independent Journal Review.
There’s a Christian genocide happening right now in Iraq, and the details are shocking.

In an interview on CNN, businessman and Chaldean-American leader Mark Arabo described the atrocities being done to Christians by ISIS:
“A Christian Holocaust is in our midst. We are actually calling this a Christian genocide… Day by day, it is getting worse and worse.”
“…There’s actually a park in Mosul where they actually beheaded children and put their heads on a stick… this is crimes against humanity. They are doing the most horrendous, the most heart-breaking crimes that you can think of.”
“They are absolutely killing every Christian they see. This is absolutely a genocide in every sense of the word. They want everyone to convert, and they want sharia law to be the law of the land.”
Arabo stated that more than 300,000 Iraqis are currently fleeing Iraq for their lives and called upon neighboring governments to welcome these refugees into their countries.
What ISIS is doing is heartbreaking, appalling and wrong. No nation, regardless of its people’s religion or ethnicity, should allow a mass murdering to happen, and we must hope that it is swiftly stopped.
Sent to us from a friend in Bloomington..I just copied it and sent to you guys.
Do with it however you feel. Always can use prayer for these people!
This was sent by Father John Pitzer, formerly at Holy Ghost Church and now New Orleans. Please offer your prayers and share with as many people as possible.
Just a few minutes ago I received the following text message on my phone from Sean Malone who leads Crisis Relief International (CRI). We then spoke briefly on the phone and I assured him that we would share this urgent prayer need with all of our contacts.
“We lost the city of Queragosh (Qaraqosh). It fell to ISIS and they are beheading children systematically. This is the city we have been smuggling food too. ISIS has pushed back Peshmerga (Kurdish forces) and is within 10 minutes of where our CRI team is working. Thousands more fled into the city of Erbil last night. The UN evacuated it’s staff in Erbil. Our team is unmoved and will stay. Prayer cover needed!”
Please pray sincerely for the deliverance of the people of Northern Iraq from the terrible advancement of ISIS and its extreme Islamic goals for mass conversion or death for Christians across this region.
May I plead with you not to ignore this email. Do not forward it before you have prayed through it. Then send it to as many people as possible. Send it to friends and Christians you may know. Send it to your prayer group. Send it to your pastor and phone him/her to pray on Sunday during the service – making a special time of prayer for this. We need to stand in the gap for our fellow Christians.
