Convert to Islam, pay a protection tax or leave.
That’s the ultimatum given to the Christians of Mosul and now thousands of Christians in other Iraqi towns, by Islamic militants. If they did not obey they would be killed.
Islamic State militants have taken over a third of Iraq and parts of Syria. The UN reports 1.2 million Iraqis and 1 million Syrians have been ‘displaced’, forced from their homes.
Bible Society is on the ground in Iraqi Kurdistan, where thousands of Christian refugees are arriving. There is also a team in Syria working to supply Scriptures to the thousands of displaced people there.
These two countries are an example of what is going on in the Middle East, where we are helping give people access to the Bible in some of the hardest places to be a Christian.
Please partner with us to bring hope to our desperate brothers and sisters in the Middle East, who are facing the most distressing circumstances imaginable.
