This is the “n” of “Nazarean”, tagged on the walls of christian houses in Mosul (Iraq), before they were forced to exile and their cathedral was burned. There’s a genocide going on there, right now.

60,000 Christians were either driven out of Mosul, Iraq without papers or belongings, killed, or forced to convert to Islam. There are now 0 Christians there. Our leaders have been fairly silent. When 200 girls were taken from a village in Africa they were vocal and started hashtag campaigns.

Christians being driven out of anywhere is depressing and heart wrenching, but the potential descendants of Christ’s first people… it just really hits home. Some of these folks still speak the language Our Lord spoke. May those responsible of these heinous crimes surely be held accountable and given due justice.
