Iraqi Christians Declare To The West ‘Please, We Don’t Want To Return To Iraq Because We Have Been Through Enough’

While there has been much talk about returning Iraqi Christian refugees to their homes, we at Shoebat.com have been saying that is irresponsible and dangerous because ISIS might return. We know this because we actually have worked in these countries and are aware of the situation. We have said repeatedly that the best way to help Iraq’s Christians is to help them resettle abroad.

Now in a recent story, Iraq’s Christians are saying what we have been telling everybody for along time- that they don’t want to go home because they are afraid ISIS will return once again:

Christians who fled Islamic State atrocities in Mosul, Iraq are reportedly still afraid that violence will return even after their destroyed hometown is reconstructed

ISIS previously declared a caliphate at the al-Nuri mosque in Mosul, but coalition forces have almost recaptured the site. The Iraqi government has entered the city and has tried to let in only the authorities, but most of the areas surrounding Mosul is being controlled by the Shia militia, CGTN notes.

In Qaraqosh, electricians are starting to rewire the town in what is seen as one of the first acts of reconstruction since ISIS was driven out of it in December. Unfortunately, Christians will have little use of these services because most of them have already fled to Erbil.

The situation in and around Mosul has given birth to fear among Christians that sectarian violence could erupt after ISIS is completely defeated. Should that situation play out in the future, believers would reportedly be left without allies.

Meanwhile, a vicar serving Christian refugees in Erbil warned that the believers can never return to their hometowns because ISIS has trained child radicals with its destructive ideology. Speaking to The Express in an interview published last month, Father Daniel said the militant group will continue its efforts to eradicate Christians from the Middle East.

“We can go back but it is a question of safety. We are dealing with a new generation bred by ISIS – they have a radical anti-Christian viewpoint and so it would be really hard to go back,” Father Daniel told The Express. “It would be very hard for children here and children in Mosul to get together. Can they even get along together as two groups? Could they adapt to each other? We really need to work with the children in Mosul to change what ISIS has implanted there.”

In light of the imminent danger, Father Daniel said education could be Christians’ only weapon against ISIS and its new generation of child radicals. The vicar also shared that some of their young supporters are now working as translators and are trying to get their message heard across the world. (source)

It is sad that Christianity in Iraq, for now, is at this point. However, what matters most, as always, is helping the Christians themselves. If we do not, then it is only a matter of time before ISIS finishes off the few survivors.

    Jesus gave Christians the permission to flee or escape if they face persecution

    “When you are persecuted in one place, flee to another. Truly I tell you,
    you will not finish going through the towns of Israel before the Son of
    Man comes.” – Matthew 10:23

    Only sadistic and selfish people tell Christians to leave or “go back”. Only racists do that. Secondly, Christians of all races, can inherit the earth and live anywhere they want, they have one God, and one God created this earth and all its lands. They are children of the most High King, they are princes and princesses of faith. They can go anywhere and live anywhere they want. Only Muslims, Hindus and other unbelieving vagabonds should stay within their domains God has set for them. Restrictions to dwell does not apply to Christians.They inherit the whole earth and are free to enjoy the freedom, peace, bounty of any land. Middle Eastern Christians and other persecuted Christians are most welcome everywhere.

      You are speaking like a Jew. You need to be humble. Those people address, have the right to be angry because demons prom Christian civilizations attack and murder them.

      • Indian Christian Crusader

        I need to be humble and I speak like a Jew, decides who? You? How do Jews speak? I believe Christians have the right to migrate to any nation in the world. No one has the right to tell them to “get lost back”. Who told you “demons” prompt Christian civilizations to attack and murder them? You have any proof that Christians murder Muslims and Hindus? I don’t believe in the false sense of “fake humility” you seek to promote. Even Jesus took a whip and beat the money lenders out of the temple.

          She is a straight up troll. I couldn’t see what she said because I blocked her a long time ago. She has a spirit of bitterness. And she wants everyone to suffer because of it.

          • filomena seiffert

            And you are a witch, like to speak bad someone you do not know. It is clear you are very interested on what I say for you continue to answer my comments to other people. Is that envy?

    These Christians are welcome by Christians in Europe (now a minority) and they even can help to revitalize Christianity here and to make people more aware about islam’s dangers. The problem is that power in the shadows prefers muslim immigration.
    Christian immigration is finding more difficulties than muslim one.
    The power in the shadows seems to want confrontation between muslim and pagan nazis and after the bloodshed some kind of syncretism based most probably in sufism.

    • filomena seiffert

      They are welcome in Brasil, over there we do not discriminate any immigrant. Just read on the Brazilian paper a young man from Pakistan telling he was well received, was selling sandwich to survive. He spoke a perfect Portuguese,if he did not tell he was from Pakistan I would not know. Greeks were speaking how they were well treated in Brasil.
      The culprit of Christian suffering all over the world is American dominance. The people from other religions think the aggressor is Chistian

      • Indian Christian Crusader

        Your thinking is flawed Filomena. American dominance has nothing to do. Christians have been killed and persecuted long before “America” was even founded.

        • Grandmere

          Indie, nothing we say will penetrate her brain. It is a block of granite.

          • filomena seiffert

            I do not think we have anything in common to discuss in civilized therms, better let it go as I do for you.

        • filomena seiffert

          True, America just added to it one hundred fold. I only speak about USA and Brazil because they are the countries I know by experiencing living in. I speak about all bad Politicians in Brasil do, which is a lot and get angry with them. If one says bad things about them I do not care because is the truth.

          • Grace Ziem

            Please read Sharia Law for Non-Muslims for a brief factual summary of what Islam is and the 270 million it murdered to get here; all documented! Opinions without facts are empty air…

          • filomena seiffert

            I am not about Muslim religion or others, I am about the millions of children of God who are murdered for no fault of their own. Their are children of God as we are, probably on Judgment day will have better fate then the murderous ‘Christians’ because to us was given the knowledge of the Immense love of God, His sacrifice for our salvation, while to them was given only the knowledge of a brutal sect. Some of you on this site, are very quick to demonize them and excuse your own leaders, yet you all know God is to be first, family second, country third. If you can not take the truth do not write me.

          • Grace Ziem

            I don’t think you know much about Islam nor about my comment history. Many of your comments are angry and condemning. I fail to see much love or prayer in most of them.
            Matt 5:16 “Let your light so shine before others that they see your good works and glorify your father in heaven.”

          • filomena seiffert

            I see the opposite, many of you just condemn the people of Islam and close your eyes to the crimes your leader commit. Of course I am angry, a just anger. Know you, I pray at least 2 hrs a day, I pray the whole humanity and specific prayers for others, the religious people, the souls in purgatory etc. Do you pray at least a hour? I do not waste my time when I drive, take the dog to parks, in middle of night when I awake. Calvinist Protestants committed crimes against priest so horrendous like ISIS and worse.

          • Grace Ziem

            In a few days there will be a dictatorial leader in Turkey who is being groomed to be a world-wide Islamic caliph. We all need to understand what this means for Christians everywhere.

            We cannot just focus on our own country: Christ said the definition of neighbor (love your neighbor) included Samaritans for the Jews, another culture, language and beliefs. If you LOVE all Christians more and judge less, you will want to learn about beliefs of those who are killing Christians; what do they believe and how does this fit in with Christ’s end times prophesy.?

            I see neither love nor wanting to learn in your posts. Please think about this before another knee-jerk response. PLEASE.

          • filomena seiffert

            It is your opinion. What love are you showing here for the people of Iraq and Syria? you only concentrate on their religion which was not their choice, they were borne into it. Do you think that God is going to find you better them them? you, who was blessed with the gift of redemption trough a horrible martyrdom inflicted on God Himself to show you how much He loves you and command you to love your brothers as you love yourself. He could redeem humanity trough any other means, He has the power, but He chose to suffer to show you how much He loves you, in turn you hate your brothers suffering. I can say Turkey is not a puppet of USA, I do not trust him but what the people of the 2 countries under scourge of atrocities has to do with him?. The only thing we need to learn is to love God and the brothers. You think you know much but I do not give a ceent for those who think they now more then others.

          • Grace Ziem

            You have not reviewed and thought about my comment history. I hope Easter can sooth some of the anger in your soul.

      • Flame blue

        You are saying Brazil doesn’t discriminate against any people, and you say ” we” as if you are Brazilian, but you say to Indian Crusader that ” he speaks like a Jew who is not humble”. I guess in that case Jews may not be welcome in Brazil if you reflect a Brazilian attitude.

        • filomena seiffert

          Flame, in my whole life in Brasil I never heard any negative thing about Jews, I only knew they were discriminated after I moved to USA. I have noticed how they are really bad to Palestinians and the prime minister is a devil. I guess the Talmud teach them to dominate as much as Islam does, just different mode of killing. I still hope the majority Jew does not want to enslave Christian and think they are chose to dominate the world.

          • Flame blue

            Filomena, you really need to learn more about the Jews. The Bible is clear, God gave them the Promised Land for keeps. God gave them a much bigger land mass than what they have now. What they have now is a very small portion of land not as big as the smallest state in America.

            There are only around 6 million Jews, and they have made that land the only democracy in the Middle East. In their democracy government they have Arab people. In Israel there are no such people as Palestinians, and the Palestinians are mostly Muslims, who came in fast to add to the numbers that were in that area of Israel. Those Muslims came to be a thorn in the side of the Jewish Nation. They arrived after the Jews returned after their persecution in Europe, by Hitler. The Arab Nations surrounding the historic Jewish ancestral land is massive and these so called Palistinians were sent from those lands. There are Jewish people who live in this area who oppressed by these Muslims who came in after 1948 became Muslim and these people are paraded in front of the media to stake the Islamic claim that they are indigenous to the land going back centuries, but Muslims ignored the barren land of ancient Israel because nothing would grow there. God did that to safeguard the land for Jews, knowing they would need to return to their ancient homeland from Europe. These now want to split Israel! They want to split the postage size land of Israel to create what they call Palestine.

            The Word Palestine comes from the ancient Romans who called the whole of Israel Palistine when they conquered their land, and they called it after the Jewish enemies the Philistines, as to insult and humiliate the Jews. The Muslims in Israel want to use that name as an offence to the Jews in Israel! The land where these so called Palistinians have congregated and habitat, is Israel. It is Jewish! Jesus was born in the Jewish homeland which under Roman rule was called Palestine so these Muslims call our Jesus a Palestinian! This is the deception and theft they operate under! We know Jesus was Jewish!

            All you need to know is the Muslims want every nation, they want the world! They think Allah commands them to own everything and conquer all people and rule over them. The Muslims use stealth, lies, deceit, numbers, and terrorism to achieve their aims and these methods profit them!

            The Jews are constantly attacked by being waylaid or having misiles sent into the heart of Israel from the so called Palistinian area. Jews get killed! More would be killed if the Jews didn’t have good defence systems. The Jews fight back, but they always warn even through phoning the house where they tracked the missile was fired from and telling the occupants to leave as they are going to hit their house as a punishment. The Muslim leaders force the women and children to stay so they will die and the propaganda will be used against the Jews!

            The Jews have exactly the same religious book you have, The Old Testament, they call the Torah. As you know there are no commands to conquer the World for our God Yahweh, our Father God. The Jews fought historical battles but had no decrees from God to fight people forever. There is no command for open ended warfare!

            The Muslims have a book called the Quran which they claim came from our God Yahweh who they call Allah, in that book there are decrees from Allah telling Muslims to take the whole world, and kill everyone who will not become a Muslim and worship Muhammad and Allah. It’s the Muslims who are to be distrusted! It’s also the Muslims and their cohorts who put out propaganda against Jews telling everyone that there is a Jewish conspiracy to rule the World. So, they put on the Jews lies and accuse them of doing what they the Muslims have an agenda to do! Plus the Muslim religious books say that Muslims are to kill (when they get the call from Muslim leaders) every Jew in the World!

          • filomena seiffert

            Flame, you are discarding what Jesus said; The Kingdom is taken from you(Jews) and given to other people. On the material side it happened on 70 AD, in the spiritual said the Kingdom was given to Christians. I do not hate Jews, they are Jesus lineage, what I do not like is their take over of other people’s right and NWO they are working for dominance

          • Flame blue

            God made an everlasting Covenant with the Jews! The land that was promised was not taken from them by God, but because of continuous sin which is disrespect for God, he turned his face from them and many were enslaved, killed, scattered to other lands, but a Jewish presence ( some Jews) did remain in the promised land, and never was it be devoid of Jews.

            Jesus is alive and well as you know, He came to the Jews first, and many accepted him, let’s remember that fact! For those who rejected him, he forgave them!

            Christians are grafted on to the Olive Tree, the Jewish tree, we are branches, we are grafted branches! We have the truth of God, we have The Holy Spirit. We are children of our Father God. It’s nothing we have done, it’s Jesus Work for us! We are inheritors but so are Sarah’s lineage! There are many Jews for Jesus, known as Messianic Jews.

            I think the only thing Jewish people are working for is peaceful spot under the sun, and l would rather the light and peace they seek was through an acknowledgement of Jesus who is the God they worship unaware of who he is! This applies to religious Jews, not to Muslims, although many want God, they allow a falsehood to govern their lives. There is no worship by Muslims that goes up to Yahweh, their prayers are curses, their god is not Yahweh. There is no other God but He named thousands of times in the Bible, but not named Yahweh once in the Quran!

          • Grace Ziem

            You are ignoring Christ’s promise to His covenant people, again repeated in Revelation.

          • filomena seiffert

            Flame, the Jews have the Torah but the powerful over there follows the Talmud. Looks like every group wants to dominate the world; Muslim, Jews, USA, UK, Germany and many others.

          • Flame blue

            The Talmud is an historic book written by wayward apostic Jews and never was it claimed to be a Holy Book, not even by that wicked cult! The Jews don’t follow any other book but the Torah, the Book of Moses and the Prophets contained within!

            The Jews do not have plans to terrorise and convert the World to Judaism! Our God does not request it!

            America may give the impression it wants to dominate the World, and l am certain that Mickey Mouse and Rock and Roll, and hamburgers have not been as good as they seemed! The UK doesn’t want to conquer and dominate anything, it’s like ” we are ashamed because we were born”. Germany clearly is bored with eating pork and instead are trying to acquire a taste for excrement!

          • Grace Ziem

            Great summary of what every Christian needs to know!

            Thank you. I am glad you value it.

  • Flame blue

    There’s never any talk of returning Muslims back to their homelands, even when they want Sharia in the host country and even when they have been involved in terrorists activities.

    Why can’t you understand that was the west powers who went there and destroyed the nations, leaving only rubles for them. Try to be honest
