Iraqi Christians wonder if their days are numbered

(Agence France-Presse) After 10 years of attacks on Iraqi Christians, Monsignor Pios Cacha wonders if the ancient community’s days are numbered.

“Maybe we will follow in the steps of our Jewish brothers,” he says.

The priest’s reference to Iraq’s Jewish population — once a thriving community numbering in the tens of thousands but now practically non-existent — neatly sums up the possible fate of Iraq’s Christians.

The 2003 US-led invasion of Iraq ended Saddam Hussein’s disastrous rule, but also turned the country into a battleground between insurgents and foreign troops, unleashing a wave of bombings and killings by militants in which Christians were not only caught in the crossfire, but targeted themselves.
