The New Exodus: Christians Flee ISIS in the Middle East

Before jihadists overran this mountain town in 2013, Maaloula was one of the oldest Christian communities in Syria, where Western Aramaic—the language of Jesus Christ—is still spoken. It was also a place of profound peace, where Sunni and Shiite Muslim residents, along with their Christian neighbors, forged a pact early in the war to avoid the sectarian conflict ripping their country apart. “We decided that even if the mountains around us were exploding with fighting, we would not go to war,” Mahmoud Diab, a Sunni imam, told Newsweek in 2012. “It’s a sectarian war, but the fact is, there is no war here in Maaloula. In this town, we are not defined by religion. We all know each other. Everyone is a Christian, and everyone is Muslim.”

Tolerance had been a tradition in Maaloula since St. Takla—the daughter of a pagan prince and an early disciple (and possibly wife) of St. Paul—fled to these mountains ...

God is with those who testify to His name, to children beheaded in front of their parents for the name of Christ.

He is not with the maniacs who callously promote these wars from afar, especially those who put Christ's name on it.

The exodus of Christians (millions had to leave) occurred after the fall of saddm, what we are seeing now is their genocide....

this occurring after the initial blessing from west/allies of jihadists in Syria to weaken assd, our own senator posed with them and called them freedom fighters. this magically turned into a new org called ISIS

meanwhile who is backing the sharia candidate running in Nigeria?

.....magically where BHaram is slaughtering Christians.

where's all those pure western Christians who do not compromise in the face of islm?

the American church needs to be purified.

Well I couldn’t pull up the article, so my comment is limited to what the first page said. How can a practicing, born again Christian live in peace with Islam to me is an impossibility. In Syria, if someone were to publicly say Mohammed and the Quran were both false, they would be put to death or jailed. So, the fact that these professing Christians lived at peace with their Muslim neighbors is really hard for me to understand. In order to do that, the Christians would have to say; you do it your way and we will do it our way and all is okay. To me that is ecumenicalism at best or pluralism at worst. I think it is wonderful that our Lord is separating the wheat from the tares before our very eyes. There can be no peace between believers and unbelievers in any society. Yes, they can live together, but the article appears to say both sides were satisfied with this relationship.

And, I pray for the safety of all concerned; whether they are in the faith or not. Murder is murder regardless of whether it is a Christian doing it or a Muslim doing it.

And SteveR. They are not catholic per se, but they share a lot of similarities between them.

The Churches involved

Eastern Catholic Churches self-governing particular churches in full communion with the Pope

&

Greek Orthodox Church can be traced back to the churches which the Apostles founded in the Balkans and the Middle East during the first century and it maintains many traditions practiced in the ancient Church Greek Orthodox Churches, unlike the Catholic Church, have no Bishopric head, such as a Pope, and hold the belief that Christ is the head of the Church.
