Facing Extinction: Assyrian Christians In Iraq
Posted: Saturday, October 10, 2009 at 01:48 PM CT
The persecution, kidnapping and murder of Assyrian Christians in Iraq is tragically increasing.
Each day thousands of Aramaic-speaking Assyrians (the language of Christ) are enduring unjust persecution because of their Christian Faith. The crew traveled into threatened Christian communities to film the stories in this program. Included is actual footage, filmed by the terrorists themselves, performing acts of violence against innocent Assyrians. The Iraqi government shows no interest in protecting the Christians, the Pentagon is ignoring the situation, and the U.S. State Department has no mandate allowing Assyrian Christians to immigrate to America. These conditions are the making of another twenty-first century holocaust involving hundreds of thousands of Christians. The future of Assyrian Christians in Iraq rests with us all!
Director, Rob Marcarelli tells why he went to Iraq and what he saw there that makes this film a desperate call to action.
