Violent Ideologies of Islamic State (IS)

On 16 March the militant group Islamic State published photos online showing their destruction of churches in Iraq, replacing centuries-old crosses with the black flag of IS. Earlier in the month, the international media were incensed by the IS destruction on ancient Assyrian statues in Nimrud, near mosul, but little attention was paid when the same thing is done to the church buildings of modern Assyrian people. Pray that the international community will rally to support of Christian and other minorities, whose very existence is threatened by the extreme and violent ideologies of IS.
