"You're next!", Chaldean Archbishop of Mosul warns West
This is the Most Reverend Amel Nona, Chaldean Catholic Archbishop of Mosul, Iraq. Behind him is what remains of St. Paul's Cathedral, destroyed in July by the jihadists of ISIS. These are the Islamic extremists the Vatican was telling us we must "dialogue" with, until recent events proved that there can be no dialogue with the devil.
The ISIS forces -- much more powerful than Al-Qaeda at its peak -- have forced a million Christians in Syria and Iraq to either convert to Islam or be killed. Until the very public beheading of James Foley this week, the Prez and other western "leaders" thought the war in the Fertile Crescent was little more than "a spot of local trouble" which could be handled with a few well-placed air strikes. This week it finally dawned on Messrs Obama, Cameron et al. that we could be next. See "'We’re coming for you, Barack Obama': Top U.S. official discloses threat from ISIL", from the Washington Times.
In an August 18th interview with Corriere della Sera, Archbishop Nona describes the danger as being not in the future, but clear and present. The fanatics are not coming, he says. They are already here! Speaking of our insane immigration policies which welcome increasing numbers of Muslims into our countries, the prelate said, "Our sufferings today are the prelude of those you, Europeans and Western Christians, will also suffer in the near future.... "I lost my diocese. The physical setting of my apostolate has been occupied by Islamic radicals who want us converted or dead.... You will become the victims of the enemy you have welcomed into your home."
