Father of two Chris Eyte tries to understand how these bereft parents feel
Imagine this: You are an Assyrian Christian targeted by Islamic State (IS) militants in Iraq. You have become a refugee hoping to escape the madness and sit on a bus with your three-year-old daughter, waiting for the vehicle to leave.
THE ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY, the Most Reverend Justin Welby, compared the present day slaughter by so-called Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria to a ruthless invasion of the Middle East by Genghis Khan in 1260 and even the Jewish Holocaust. He said it was hard to believe ‘such horrors can happen’ and they were ‘part of an evil pattern’ of persecution against believers around the world.
