The Islamic occupying force ISIS, which captured Mosul last month, issued the ultimatum to Christians, “Convert to Islam, pay an anachronistic Islamic tax for non-Muslims known as jizya, leave Mosul, or be killed. But the day before the final exodus, Christians were informed jizya was no longer an option. The order came to convert, leave, or die” (The Daily Beast, July 22, 2014). According to a Mosul-based human rights organization, “Those families leaving from the checkpoints on the eastern side of the city were harassed and robbed of their possessions but ultimately allowed to leave Mosul with only the clothes on their backs and possibly cab fare” (ibid.). “Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.) accused the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) of genocide for ‘systematically targeting Christians and other religious minorities in Iraq for extinction’” (CNS News, July 22, 2014).
