Christian Genocide in Iraq

I've long maintained that the war in Iraq that was supposed to 'liberate' its people from tyrannical regime of Saddam Hussein only served to put the Christian population in greater danger. Now, an Iraqi archbishop is actually claiming that the treatment of Christians in Iraq borders on 'genocidal.' Among the reasons he cites is the duplicity that exists between what we went over there for - western democracy - and what the Iraqi constitution has ushered in - Islamic theocracy.

Via Catholic San Francisco:
DUNDALK, Ireland (CNS) — An Iraqi archbishop spoke of “near-genocide conditions” for Christians in his country and said those fleeing violence were straining resources in other parts of the country.

Archbishop Bashar Warda of Irbil, Iraq, said part of the problem was the country’s “weak constitution, which tries to please two masters.”

“We are living in a region which cannot decide if it is for democracy or Islamic law,” he said March 16 at news conference sponsored by the Catholic charitable agency Aid to the Church in Need.

Archbishop Warda criticized “neighboring governments feeding insurgents with money and weapons to destabilize the Iraqi government” and said the rest of world’s governments had “turned their backs on us, as if the human rights abuses and near-genocide conditions Iraqi Christians experience are temporary.”

Archbishop Warda said that since the U.S.-led occupation of his country began in 2003, more than 500 Christians had been killed in religious and politically motivated violence.

Between 2006 and 2010, 17 Iraqi priests and two bishops were kidnapped and beaten or tortured. One bishop, four priests and three subdeacons were killed.

“In most cases, those responsible for the crimes stated they wanted Christians out of Iraq,” the archbishop said.
Again, this should serve as a clear reason why a Democratic Republic like that established by our Founding Fathers and Sharia Law are two mutually exclusive entities. When Sharia Law is the law of the land, freedom of religion does not exist. Again, in Iraq, it looks like we took Christians out of the frying pan and threw them into the fire.
