“Christians need a state of their own …”
by Yochanan Visser
Earlier this week, Western Journalism published an article about a plan by American Christian Organizations to establish a protected Christian homeland or even an independent state for persecuted Middle Eastern Christians in the Nineveh plains in Iraq (near Mosul).

Last year, Joseph Hakim, the head of the International Christian Union, became one of the first American Christian leaders who made the case for a Christian independent state in the Middle East.

Hakim repeatedly criticized the Obama administration for not doing enough to save the Middle Eastern Christians and told Front Page magazine the following:

Trump Contends Faith In God Key To Reuniting Country, Restoring Greatness
Hillary Clinton Admits That Love Is A ‘Hard Commandment To Obey’
First Time Ever: Iraqi Christian Militia Liberates ISIS-Held Village Near Nineveh

“Christians need a state of their own and an alliance with the U.S. and Israel. Otherwise, being leaderless and without a military force, Christians have no chance to survive.”

This was followed by another initiative by the Philos Project and In Defense of Christians that received the backing of several Congressmen and has already resulted in proposed legislation.

Those groups advocate the forming of a “protected Christian homeland” or a “Safe Haven province” in the Nineveh plains in Iraq in order to preserve Christianity in the Middle East after the genocide by Islamic State and persecution by other Islamist terror groups eliminated whole Christian communities in Syria and Iraq.
