Iraq: Death threats continue to menace nation's Christians




ultimo aggiornamento: 26 novembre, from adnkronos international


Fresh death threats against Christians residing in Iraq are terrorising families and inciting them to flee, according to reports from 'al-Hayat' newspaper citing interviews with Iraqi security officials.

Fresh death threats against Christians residing in Iraq are terrorising families and inciting them to flee, according to reports from 'al-Hayat' newspaper, which cites interviews from Iraqi security officials.

Seven hand written messages for which Al-Qaeda has claimed responsibility were found in various locations throughout the city, Abdullah al-Nawafili, a Christian community leader in the Iraqi capitol, Baghdad confirmed.

"Threats of these types have been coming in over the past few days that push us to leave the country," he said.

The messages were delivered to the Camp Sara neighbourhoods of Baghdad which is home to a predominantly Christian population as well as the districts al-Amin and Baghdad al-Jadid and were written on white paper resembling doctors prescription pads. "Leave Iraq immediately or you will be killed by us," the notes read.

The report comes less than a month after 58 Christians were killed in an attack on a Christan church in Baghdad's al-Karrada neighbourhood of the same name. Subsequent attacks in the Iraqi capital have claimed more lives.

Earlier this month, Iraqi president Jalal Talabani said Christians would be safe from sectarian attack if they temporarily moved to Kurdistan in the country's north until Iraq's leaders could guarantee their security.

  1. Jalal Talabani: using the same tactics the arab league used in 1947, to get the arabs in palestine to move out of what was to become Israel. So they could attack the Jews!Epic fail, but they have kept arabs in camps to use as a stick to beat Israel.

    Talabani is trying to cause strife in Kurdish areas as they are the most peaceful. Except where the turks are flying over with drones to kill Kurds!!
