Muslims in Iraq took hundreds of Christian books and burned them in a giant bonfire. According to one report:
According to a report from the Kurdish media outlet ARA News, the terror group published a video through the affiliated Amaq news agency last week. The video, titled “Diwan of education destroys Christian instruction books in Mosul,” shows IS militants tossing hundreds of Christian textbooks, many of them emblazoned with crosses, into a large bonfire.A local activist, Abdullah al-Mulla, told ARA News the books had been collected from the many Christian schools and churches throughout the once thriving city.
“ISIS jihadis burned hundreds of Christian textbooks in central Mosul,” al-Mulla said. “The militants have also collected a lot of Christian textbooks from the Dawassa district near Martyr’s’ Park and publicly burned then,” he added.
As reported by The Gospel Herald, Mosul has been occupied by ISIS since June 2014 and is considered to be the main stronghold for the terror group in the region. Once ISIS took over the city, it issued an edict to drive out the remaining Christian citizens and offered an ultimatum: convert to Islam or die.
