- La situazione sta peggiorando.
Gridate con noi che i diritti umani sono calpestati da persone che parlano in nome di Dio ma che non sanno nulla di Lui che è Amore, mentre loro agiscono spinti dal rancore e dall’odio.
Gridate: Oh! Signore, abbi misericordia dell’Uomo.

ISIS Militants Are the 'Grandson of Satan': Christian Survivors Find Iraq Church Turned Into Military Base
Santa Barbara church in Keramlis, an ancient Assyrian town about 18 miles southeast of Mosul, now has tons of rubble and earth piled on it and a network of tunnels dug under it, according to BBC, which visited Christian areas in Iraq.
The majority of the residents of Keramlis fled after IS invaded it after seizing Mosul and surrounding areas two years ago. The Christian residents were told to convert to Sunni Islam or leave the town. Thousands of them fled to Iraq's Kurdish region and hundreds of others to neighboring countries, Europe, the United States and elsewhere.
"They (IS) are the grandsons of Satan," Basma al-Saoor, a Christian survivor, was quoted as saying.The St. Addai church in the same town is also a scene of destruction. Its confessional had been turned into a closet, a tomb had been desecrated and red prayer benches were burned. Parish priest, Father Paul Thabet, was quoted as saying that those responsible must be brought to justice.
