From Walid Shoebat:
Iraq’s first Christian-only brigade of regular forces graduated Thursday to help retake the community’s towns and villages from the Islamic State group while they put the mark of God — the Holy Cross — on their foreheads, before marching to battle against ISIS. Christians are reviving a biblical custom from Ezekiel’s time in which God demanded to mark the foreheads of the followers of the true God…. Most of Iraq’s Christians lived in the Nineveh plain, an area between the main IS hub of Mosul and the Kurdish capital of Arbil, before IS fighters swept in seven months ago….“Around 600 peshmerga from our Christian brothers in the Nineveh
plain joined this course, which focused on physical training, military lectures and shooting exercises,” said Abu Bakr Ismail, the commander of the training academy.“All the participants are volunteers… and want to liberate their land from IS and then protect it,” the Kurdish special forces major general said… Several other Christian groups have formed in recent months in northern Iraq. They do not fall under the peshmerga’s command but are hosted and supported by Kurdistan.There are also Americans joining the Christian militia, two of whom are Tim Locks and Bret, two courageous men Shoebat.com has written on before.
Please comment below:
- What do you think of the concept of a Christian militia? One that is not bound by allegiance to any state or nation, but rather to the church?
- Do you think the church should be actively supporting such groups and activities, with finances, weapons, ammunition, food & supplies, prayer, etc?
- Do you think that such a militia will one day be needed to defend the church/Christians in the West, especially the US?
