WASHINGTON – An Iraqi nun who has been displaced by the Islamic State terrorist organization told members of Congress on Wednesday that Christians in Iraq have lost everything, including their own dignity and history, as ISIS continues its quest to completely erase evidence of Christianity's existence in the region.
Sister Diana Momeka, who was at the center of a recent State Department visa controversy, testified before the House Foreign Affairs Committee and said that although it has been nearly a year since ISIS took over most of the Nineveh Plains in northern Iraq, Christian Iraqi citizens are still in dire need of assistance in liberating their lands.
Momeka, who works with the Dominican Sisters of St. Catherine of Siena, fled from Qaraqosh to the Kurdish-protected north last summer upon ISIS' rapid takeover of the Mosul region. more >>

What is it about those who abandon American ideals that they would otherwise hold dear the moment terrorist groups make threats or when a particular point of view stands against theirs in opposition? Is it fear? A lack of moral grounding? Both?
Those who only stand for freedom for likeminded individuals or just up until they feel threatened might do well to analyze what it is they really believe. Will they ever be content living in a place that believes so much in freedom its soldiers are willing to go to the ends of the earth dying to defend it?
But, then again. more >>
