A draft document by members of the global Christian community is warning that unless the course is reversed, Christians could be driven out of their ancient homelands in the Middle East entirely in less than a decade.
“At the beginning of the 2000’s, the number of Christians living in Iraq totals about 1.5 million, which came to about 5% of the country’s population. By now, the figure has plummeted to about 100,000 people,” the document states.
“The biggest Syria cities that lived through occupation by the militants have lost almost all of their Christian population.”
The draft memorandum positions that Christianity “will vanish” from its homeland by the middle of the next decade if radical Islam’s attacks on Christians are not stopped.
Genocidal campaigns have resulted in the deaths and kidnappings of untold numbers of Christians and other minorities while millions have also had to flee their homes.
“It is critical time for the Christians of Iraq — ‘to be or not to be.'” Former Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.) said about the dissemination of Christianity in the Middle East.
“Now is the time. We have an administration that’s open to doing something,” he said, referring to the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump.
“There’s a willingness and desire on the part of the Christians to stay. I think given protection and coordination with housing and infrastructure, they will return,” Wolf added.
“We are at the tipping point and if we do nothing, we will lose Christianity in the cradle of Christianity. As Christians, this is our homeland and we must do everything to save it,” Hudson said.
