While day after day we hear of the savagery displayed by Sunnis against Shi’ites and Shi’ites against Sunnis in Iraq, we hardly hear about the savagery both groups display against Christians.
Remember how Nuns in Africa were murdered by Muslims because of the Mohammed cartoons? Well, Muslims don’t really need a phony excuse to kill nuns. They do it for sport.
Monday night, in Kirkuk, two elderly Chaldean nuns were fatally stabbed by intruders at their home, according to Iraqi police 1st Lt. Marewan Salih. There was no sign of a robbery. Of course, not. The point wasn’t to steal. It was to kill revered Christian religious figures.
Intruders killed two elderly sisters, both nuns, at the Cathedral of the Virgin. . . .
Kirkuk police spokesman Marewan Salih said the Chaldean Catholic nuns, Fawzeiyah Naoum, 85, and her 79-year-old sister Margaret, had been stabbed multiple times by two intruders who raided their home on Monday night. They had lived alone and there was no sign of robbery, Salih said.
Margaret Naoum was stabbed seven times as she stood in the garden just outside their home. The attackers then went inside where they found Fawzeiyah Naoum lying on the sofa, recovering from eye surgery. She was stabbed three times.
They–the Christians in Iraq–are the real victims of the Muslims there–whether Sunni or Shia. They are leaving Iraq in droves, because the only Muslims who will tolerate their presence are the less fundamentalist Kurds. Sunnis and Shi’ites have told the Christians in no uncertain terms that they will not be tolerated in Iraq. And that’s beside the many church bombings committed against them.
Religion of Peace? Never.
