250 Christian girls were recently kidnapped, raped, impregnated, and executed by Muslim militants. Sharia courts have waged “rape jihad” on non-Muslim women and children in an effort to quell soldiers’ sexual desires and punish the enemies of Islam. Honor killings, imprisonment, andcrucifixions have left thousands of Christians in hiding.
And they’re fed up.
The Christian minority in Iraq assembled 600 followers to take up arms against ISIS Jihadists, who have been terrorizing the Christian settlement of Bartella
The small army are led by Capt. Firaz Jacob, a Christian who refuses to idle any longer while their women and children are raped by Islamist militants.
I stand here waiting for my destiny… We will stay here despite everything… All these armed groups we have seen, but nevertheless we will remain. We love our Christian way of life, we love our churches and we love our community.
Capt. Jacob, when asked what they will do if the militants attack again, told CBS News, “I don’t know, but maybe they’ll do what they’ve done in other places and kill us.”
The Iraqi government vowed to protect the civilians of Bartella, but when federal soldiers abandoned their posts after ISIS attacks, residents were left to defend themselves.
The Iraqi government soldiers who were supposed to be protecting this area ran away from the Islamic extremists. Now, Bartella is defended by about 600 lightly armed Christian militiamen.
ISIS soldiers had already slaughtered dozens of non-Muslims, staging a mass execution to warn others. The Christians are preparing for another sweep, hoping to fight off militants at least for now.
