ISIS expel Christians from monastery

Reports are coming in that Islamist militants have seized the ancient 'mar behnam' monastery near Mosul and expelled the monks - allowing them to leave with nothing other than the clothes on their backs!

The monastery, dating back to the 4th Century, is an important Christian sacred space and a place of pilgrimage.

This expulsion shows the intolerance of the militants and demands some action from those who seek tolerance and peace as Mosul becomes a place where no Christians are to be found.

 Please pray - write to your MP and demand that our nation speaks up for those so sorely oppressed and threatened by the cancer that surely is ISIS.
