reknowned:

In 1915 Turks and kurds killed millions of Assyrians, Greeks and Armenians, a genocide against Christians. Now, 99 years later, the same thing is happening. ISIS terrorists are killing, raping and torturing Assyrian Christians in Iraq, where we Assyrians are the original population. Assyrians in Nineveh are given three options, 1. Pay a ridiculous amount of money in tax, 2. Convert to Islam or 3. Die. Are we going to let this happen? Is humanity going to let this happen? For the first time in over 2000 years there are no Assyrians in Nineveh (now called mosul), for the first time in 2000 years there is no mass in the churches in Nineveh. Is the world going let this happen, let terrorists wipe the original people out of their own country? Is this what humanity has come to?
