For the first time in 1,600 years, Mass is not being said in Mosul: an ancient culture has been wiped out in a matter of weeks. It’s a war crime that, strangely, no one seems to want to talk about.
Mosul is the second-largest city in Iraq. Since the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) rode into town, the Christian’s faith has been forced underground. Bells have been silenced, the hijab enforced with bullets.
