Michael Coren, of the Sun News, interviewed a Christian who had great experience with Christian persecution in the Middle East to discuss the persecution taking place against Christians in Iraq. The Christian brought a Bible that survived an attack by Muslims on the Our Lady of Salvation Syriac Catholic Cathedral in Baghdad. What the Iraqi Christian showed Coren was horrific:
The church had been attacked during the evening Mass on October 31, 2010 by a Sunni Muslim terrorist group known as the Islamic State of Iraq. At least 58 people were murdered and more than 75 injured in that attack.
The large, heavy book being held in front of me was, I realized, almost beyond reading. Its pages were thick and glued together in lumps, soaked and sticky with the blood of the men, women, and children who had been slaughtered that warm evening in a place of peace, in a city where Christians had lived and flourished before Islam even existed. This was not a holy book to be preached from, but a holy book of martyrdom that preached. Its illegible pages spoke entire volumes, its red turned to brown strains cried out to a still largely indifferent or even hostile world.
