Urgent Prayer and Action for the Persecuted

The invasion, this last week, by the Turkish Army of Northern Syria has led to a dreadful increase of persecution of the long-suffering Assyrian Christians and Kurds in Northern Syria. The initial reports are of indiscriminate artillery barrages, aerial bombardments and specific targeting of Christian communities. After all that these poor people have endured at the hands of ISIS, before being recently liberated, this new disaster comes as a most heavy blow. Commenting on the disastrous tendency of the Turks to target Christians, British Prime Minister William Gladstone in the 19th century described the Muslim Turks as: “They were, upon the whole, from the black day when they first entered Europe, the one great anti-human specimen of humanity. Wherever they went, a broad line of blood marked the track behind them and as far as their dominion reached, civilisation disappeared from view. They represented everywhere government by force, as opposed to government by law.”

“…Cease to do evil; learn to do good; seek justice, rebuke the oppressor; defend the fatherless, plead for the widow.”

Isaiah 1:16-17
