We have received pictures of the recent horrifying slaughter which took place in Baghdad on October 31st.  Two priests were killed as they celebrated holy MASS (ages 27 and 32 yrs old). One other priest was severely injured and is critical undergoing surgeries.  The priests begged for their lives to be taken only so that the faithful would be spared but instead all were murdered, even the children who were present.  This is an atrocity as well as a huge tragedy of our times. Christians are being persecuted all over the world and reports of such attacks for their faith are not reflected in any other secular media.
 
Father (Père) Wassim Sabih (Waseem Sabeeh Al-kas Butros), 27 years old and Father (Père) Thaer (Thaer Saad-alla Abdal), 32 years old were killed during the attack on Our Lady of Salvation Syrian Catholic Church by terrorists during Mass Sunday evening, in Bagdad, October 31, 2010. Father Rafael Alkotaily critically injured is now undergoing a number of surgeries t Ibn Al-Nafis hospital in Baghdad. More than 63 were killed in the bloodbath. Another 120 were wounded. Hundreds of dependents are now helpless.
 
May their souls rest in PEACE and JOY within the arms of the GOD they were martyrd for.


 
For the past seven years, the Iraqi Christians have been targeted by waves of attacks on their churches, monasteries, homes, businesses and in person. A Bishop and Several Priests were killed and even slaughtered in cold blood. Since the events of 2003 more than half the Iraqi Christians fled the country, thousands have been killed, and more than 60 churches, monasteries were bombed. In less than a week after terrorists’ attacked Iraqi Christians during a Sunday mass in the heart of Baghdad, al-Qaeda has threatened to stage more similar attacks on Christians.

In a reported warning, an al-Qaeda affiliated group, Islamic State of Iraq (ISI), claimed that their attacks were legitimate and that the time had come for Iraqi Christians to face the doors of destruction. "All Christian centers, organizations and institutions, leaders and followers, are legitimate targets for the muhajideen wherever they can reach them,” the statement said.“We will open upon them the doors of destruction and rivers of blood,” it added.


 
When the Lamb broke the fifth seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God, and because of the testimony which they had maintained; and they cried out with a loud voice, saying, "How long, O Lord, holy and true, will You refrain from judging and avenging our blood on those who dwell on the earth?" And there was given to each of them a white robe; and they were told that they should rest for a little while longer, until the number of their fellow servants and their brethren who were to be killed even as they had been, would be completed also
