It’s Genocide, Syriac Orthodox Bishop Says of ISIS Attacks on Christians

“It’s genocide, ethnic cleansing.”

Syriac Orthodox Archbishop Nikodimos Daoud of Mosul gave this impassioned — and now famous — interview to MEMRI TV several days ago.

In it, the Archbishop says that he waited to speak out against ISIS because he did not want his flock in Mosul to suffer any repercussions. Now that all of the Christians have fled the city and surrounding region in order to escape horrific executions of men, women, and even children, the Archbishop says there is no longer any reason to remain silent. And silent he is not!

Listen to the interview, which has very good subtitles, and be sure to share. More people need to hear the Archbishop’s message.

IT’S TIME TO SPEAK OUT!

Across the world, Christians are suffering for their faith. Attacked by ISIS and harangued by extremism, Christianity is in danger of being eradicated in the lands of its birth. Yet very few people in the West seem to care — or even know!

That’s why we at OCN believe it’s time to speak out. We’ve covered this issue for a long time, but want to dedicate even more resources to raising awareness and spurring action, using our massive social media following. We reach MILLIONS of people per week, and it’s time for collective action.

Please support this effort by giving to our “10 cent per day” campaign. 100% of your gift will go directly to expanding this ministry, 0% to overhead. Together, we can and will make a difference!

— Fr. Christopher T. Metropulos, OCN Executive Director
