Hallo DlawerIraq was stable before Americans and their allies invaded the country. Christians (Americans and western powers) are responsible for what is happening in Iraq today. Bush even called the invasion as a crusade. He and his allied invaded Iraq and killed millions of innocent people who never stepped their feet on American soil. Educate yourself. Who started the crusade?!2   ·  6 hours ago

Michael PetekThe extremists must be given their proper name: Amalek. Now, it's important to emphasise that a person who is a Muslim is not for that reason alone an Amalekite. Only if he wages religious war in hostility to Jews or Christians, or is committed to their annihilation, does he fall under the herem which is fixed upon this unique enemy. The hatred which Amalek has for the Jews and the Christians on account of the name of Israel is so fathomless, contagious and dangerous that, once he is at large, our Lord Jesus Christ Himself must either command Israel and the nations to put him to the sword or acquiesce in the destruction of His kingdom on earth. See Exodus 17, Deuteronomy 25, 1 Samuel 15 and Psalms 83.1 day ago

Who Are My People

Dear Friends,

Greetings from Jerusalem. I am here for one day before I return to the UK to speak this weekend, please see the details of where I will be below. We have had such an important visit here at a very important time. It is very important not to compare tragedies in a competition for who has the worst deal. The reality is that things are awful for all the people of Israel, Palestine, Iraq and the Gaza at the moment. I love these people. I often refer to “My People” so I want to explain what I mean by my people.

“My People”
Firstly let me say what I do not mean. I am not only referring to those who are members of our church in Baghdad. We don’t have any church members as such; we have hundreds if not thousands who see themselves as part of our community. They are both Christians and Muslims. The Christians are of all different Christian denominations: Chaldion, Syrian Catholic, Syrian Orthodox, Assyrian-Ancient Church of the East Old and New Calendar, Armenian Orthodox, Armenian Catholic, Roman Catholic and Presbyterian. Then there are a large number of our Church community who are not even Christian but Muslim both Sunni and Shia. So in reality I see all these people as my people in Iraq as my people. I would also include in my people all the members of the High Council of Religious Leaders in Iraq (the HCRLI), which I direct, and there it is not even just Christians and Muslims but also Mandians, Yazeedis and Shabach. So all these people are whom I would consider My People in Iraq.

Iraq is not the only place where I would consider that I have my people; fundamental to this group I would also consider those I work with in Israel and Palestine. For the work of FRRME is not just St George’s Baghdad and Iraq. We are about working for peace throughout the Middle East so Israel and Palestine is a major part of that. So here we are working intimately for peace amongst Jews, Christians and Muslims. This is also a vital part of our work. We are the only organization that is working actively in both Iraq and Israel and this is the work that the Lord has called us to do. Despite the risks we will not stop doing it because he who has called us will not fail us.

I am more aware than ever that we do indeed have a huge amount of work to do here as well as in Iraq. We have been having intense meetings with senior Israeli Government officials including with people who came directly from the Prime Minister. This afternoon we are meeting with the Foreign Minister and other senior government officials for which I ask your prayer.

Meanwhile things continue to be very difficult in Iraq. The Christians who have fled Mosul are still in grave danger and many of them are “My People” and now you know what I mean by that many of My People come from Mosul/Nineveh and they go back to there homes often in the summer and had been caught up in the tragedy there and cannot return. ISIS continues to control much of Iraq and though it may not have taken Baghdad yet it does appear to have many so called “Hidden Cells” in Baghdad which will reveal themselves at the right time. So your prayers are still much needed.

Blessings and Love,

Andrew
