Islamisation tramples faith

THE Arabs once had a saying about the British: “Better to be their enemy, for that way they will try to buy you; for if you are their friend, they will most certainly sell you.” For Iraq’s Christians, it has proved to be sage advice.

It is a lesson learned by 25-year-old engineering student Wissam Shamouy, an Assyrian Orthodox Christian from Bakhdida, in Nineveh province, who fled after jihadis gave him a second warning: leave or die. He made his way to England because he spoke the language, and was told Britain helped with “humanity protection”. Instead, he was arrested for arriving with false documents and imprisoned for 122 days.
