In Mosul, Iraq the persecution of Christians continued this Christmas with the bombing of St Thomas Church last Wednesday killing two men and wounded five others. Even more astounding was the attack upon the Christian community of Bartilla in Northern Iraq on Christmas Day.

Over 100 Shiite Muslims attacked the Assyrian Christian town on Christmas morning taking over the entry checkpoint, destroying Christmas decorations, throwing rocks at the Christians during a procession into the church, and then wounded 4 in a gun battle while attempting to enter the church during the Christmas service.
