All last week, Rebel team members and I were in the northern part of Iraq, the semi-autonomous region of Kurdistan.
One of the places we visited was a torched church in the Christian town of Batnaya, that was liberated from ISIS after two years. There were some efforts to start cleaning up the desecrated church: they put the cross back on the roof, and cleaning up the human waste that had been smeared around.
I’ll show you some un-removed graffiti: It’s written in German, presumably by a German Muslim terrorist — either a convert or a migrant — who went to Iraq to rape and murder.
For all we know, he’s back in Germany now…
What’s going on in Iraq is a Christian genocide, one that only The Rebel is really reporting on.
We shot enough footage, including interviews with survivors of ISIS, to produce a long-form, world-class documentary, suitable for distribution through Neftlix or the BBC, for instance.
But we also had a humanitarian mission.
We handed out $10,000 in food baskets to Christians who are slowly returning to another deserted town, Tel Askuf.
We’ve raised about US$150,000 so far for the next stage of our humanitarian efforts, 100 per cent of which will help Iraq’s Christians.
(Remember: That’s completely separate from our journalistic crowdfunding campaign, to cover our airfare and equipment.)
My desire is for the west to stop taking most Muslim migrants, who are not subject to any genocide, and to start taking Christian migrants, who are not only culturally assimilable, but they’re actually the ones being killed.
And that was one thing that really stood out for me:
That Kurdistan looks less Islamicly extremist than many parts of Mississauga or Scarborough…
NEXT: Faith Goldy joined me on this mission to Iraq, and like me, found it an eye-opening experience.
She joins me to talk about what surprised her most, and what she thinks the future holds for Iraq's Christians.
THEN: Sun columnist Lorrie Goldstein and I talk about the Trudeau Liberals' spin on the shameful $10.5 million payout to convicted, confessed terrorist Omar Khadr.
They're trying to tell taxpayers that the deal was about "saving money." Lorrie explains why that's a lie.
