Christianity in Iraq

Reader comment on item: Christians Disappearing From Iraq

Submitted by Kaushik (India), Jun 13, 2007 at 03:20

It is just terrible reading the plight of Christians in Islamic countries....Pakistanchristianpost.com reported now Iraqis want all christians to pay jiziya tax else give their daughter in marriage to muslims or else they are supposed to leave Iraq.

Why not the muslims who are comfortable in Europe and america and elsewhere be told to go back to such islamic countries and make way for the christians of middle east come over to europe and americas

I guess christians have to unite and let these islamists know that there are other ways to get around them...why dont muslim girls marry all christian men and convert to christianity because they will be treated with responsible freedom and dignity than be a 2nd, 3rd or 4th wife of a muslim man...

how come world does not recognise that? because in christianity we have freedom
