Christians are being told that their churches will be burned if they dare to open. Christians must either pay the dhimmi (non-Muslim slave) tax or be beheaded.
CBN Throughout its Iraq campaign, ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) has targeted Christians. Many fled to the relative safety of Kurdish Iraq, but most still fear the wrath of the world’s most brutal jihadist group. About 25,000 Christians have fled to Bartilla, but CBN News couldn’t find one who would talk on camera out of fear of retribution. But conditions in Bartilla are abysmal. There’s no water because ISIS turned it off. And there’s no electricity because Prime Minister Maliki’s government turned that off.
