First Category-always binding

What a great loss it would be If Christianity in Iraq is obliterated, not only to Iraq but to the whole Middle east and to the whole Muslim world
Christians are threatened, intimidated & their livelihood taken from them, their homes & possessions seized & destroyed.
The longer we refuse to take action, hundreds of Christians are forced to flee their homes in fear of their lives
