Today we’ll be talking to Keith Davies from This is an example of the hundreds of Churches that have been destroyed by ISIS as well as Boko Haram in Nigeria. There’s no doubt that Christians are the most persecuted group in the world. Tune in to hear Keith Davies today at 4:20 and read Robert Spencer’s commentary below.



All the “Muslim-Christian dialogue” in which Christian leaders in the West so doggedly and naively engage, while silencing those who call attention to this kind of destruction and why it is happening, hasn’t done a thing to end or even slow down the rampant Muslim persecution of Christians worldwide.

“4 killed as ISIS destroys another Mosul church,”Rudaw, July 7, 2015:

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region- The Islamic State, or ISIS, has blown up on Monday an historic Christian church in Mosul known as the Mother of Aid.

Saeed Mamuzini, media officer of the Mosul branch of the Kurdistan Democratic Party(PDK), told Rudaw the jihadists also killed four children who were near the church at the time of its destruction.

Mamuzin said the church was located in central of Mosul dates back to thousands of years.

Mosul fell in early June after the rapid capitulation by the Iraqi military, whose members reportedly abandoned their posts as the jihadists advanced.

After one year of controlling Mosul, the Islamic State has blown up many mosques and churches. In early March, it was reported that ISIS militants used explosives to demolish the much-loved 19th century Hamo mosque, deeming it sacrilegious.
