Canon Andrew White on BBC Newsnight

The persecution continues

On August 7th, Canon Andrew White was interviewed on BBC Newsnight. The plight of the Yazidis and other religious groups has been brought to attention as many are being forced to flee. Once againĀ an ultimatum comes to the forefront of their reasons for leaving. The choice is this: Convert to Islam, Pay special taxes, or Be executed. This has led to the exodus we now see among the persecuted groups. Canon White says, “The international community needs to wake up to the needs of the people.” Those needs are rapidly growing as the people seek a safe haven.

  1. Dear Brother, what can I say except that the Scripture says to pray for those persecuted for righteousness sake.
    I am helping financially and keeping the plight of your people before the churches in NZ where I can. We spent time
    in a Prayer Group this week on three occasions as well as personal prayer.

  2. Dear father Andrew , you are true disciples and warriors for our Lord God ,our love is with you . The perpetrators of those crimes against humanity know what they are doing and are blind to it. Soon they will see the blood on their hands, and know what it is to cry out for mercy in what they are doing to themselves , their fellow humans, and also committing blasphemy against Lord God ! We pray that the international community will not be culpable and negligent in this tradgedy any further. Our love is with you all . 7
