Concerned about the plight of Iraq’s minorities, about 1,000 Iraqi-American Christians rallied Friday in downtown Detroit, part of an effort raise awareness about their dwindling population in Iraq as extremists gain power.
Carrying red crosses and signs that read “Save the Christians of Iraq,” the crowd prayed at Hart Plaza in downtown Detroit and then walked to the McNamara federal building, chanting: “Stop the genocide in Iraq” and “We demand action” . . .
Friday’s rally was led by local Chaldean (Iraqi Catholic) leaders and featured several Catholic prayers. Bishop Francis Kalabat of Southfield, who heads the Chaldean Church in the eastern half of the U.S, compared the plight of Iraq’s minorities to what Jesus Christ suffered.
All I see on my TV is round the clock coverage of the shooting of Michael Ferguson, stories about ISIS in Iraq and the murder of James Foley but nothing, almost no news stories and no news coverage, about the Genocide of Christians in Iraq in either the brain dead U.S. Media or the more brainy Canadian Broadcasting Corporation news.
