As many as 350,000 Christians in Syria, Iraq, and other areas of the Middle-east that have fallen to the army ant-like advance of the Islamist terror group known as ISIS, ISIL, or simply IS - The Islamic State - are in "imminent danger" of being murdered in the most horrific fashion for refusing to renounce their faith in Jesus Christ or convert to the ISIS brand of Islam.
On this extremely urgent and important episode of The Truth Is Viral, spokesman for the global Chaldean Christian community Mark Arabo tells of entire cities in Northern Iraq where Christians have been evacuated ahead of the most horrifically barbaric ethnic cleansing since the Crusades. Arabo says tens of thousands of Christians have already fallen to the bloody sword of ISIS terrorists. Christian men and boys are crucified and/or beheaded for refusing to convert to Islam; but only after being forced to watch their wives, daughters, and sisters raped and beheaded first.
The onslaught of the terrorist horde has been so brutal that even the vaunted Kurdish Peshmerga fighters, long extremely capable military allies of the United States in northern Iraq, have been defeated. The city of Qaraqoush, the largest Christian community in Iraq, and four suburbs have fallen to ISIS along with Mosul, Iraq's second largest city and home to the Mosul dam which has also come under ISIS control.
The UN estimates that up to 50,000 Christians and members of the Yazidi minority, along with Shia and Sufi Muslims, have fled to Mount Sinjar in northwestern Iraq. The mountain is completely surrounded by ISIS terrorists and the terrified civilians have been issued an ultimatum: Convert or die. There have been reports that ISIS has offered to let some Christians live if they paid a religious "jizya" tax, but when they came forward with the money they were robbed and murdered anyway.
