Another Martyr

Jihadis are destroying these ancient Christian communities, in this case the Assyrian oriental Orthodox.

Father Paulos Iskandar was kidnapped and beheaded in Iraq:
On Monday, October 9, a prominent Assyrian (also known as Chaldean and Syriac) priest, Fr. Paulos Iskander (Paul Alexander), was kidnapped by an unknown Islamic group. His ransom was posted at either $250,000 or $350,000. This group had demanded that signs be posted once again on his church apologizing for the Pope's remarks as a condition for negotiations to begin.

Father Alexander was beheaded on Wednesday.
It's an old story, and the indifference is deafening.
