help stop the atrocities against the Iraqi Christians
This petition had 1,046 supporters
You may have seen the news stories about the violence and interrogation in Mosul Iraq caused by a separatist movement called Isis. Thousands of Christians have been threatened with their life if they fail to convert to Islam, pay a special tax or leave the area with immediate effect. Before pitilessly exiling the Christians on foot, Isis stole everything they had — homes, businesses, cars, money and even wedding rings, sometimes with the ring fingers attached. Churches have all been destroyed, shuttered or turned into mosques. Thousands of innocent people have fled for their lives in what can only be described as an attack against religious liberty and freedom. I’m asking if you could please consider signing this petition asking the Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond MP, to take decisive action to mount international pressure against these atrocities, and similarly to France, to offer asylum in the UK for those fleeing for their lives. No belief, no matter how strong, should be allowed to cause such grievous attacks and atrocities, threatening the rights and religious freedom of every individual.
