We documented a Christian genocide in Iraq. Here’s what we're doing about it.

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

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.

Does the truth hurt?

Ezra Levant and the like are only highlighting terrorists persecuting Christians, a sad example of biased and divisive coverage in order to blow things out of proportion.

Ezra Levant and the like are not helping Christian victims of terrorist incidents carried out by White Christians. Why?

In EU, White people are responsible for the vast majority of terrorist incidents.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terrorism#/media/File:Terro.jpg

“The largest number of attacks in which the terrorist affiliation could be identified were carried out by ethno-nationalist and separatist extremists (99). Attacks carried
out by left-wing violent extremists have been on the rise since 2014; they reached
a total of 27 in 2016, of which most (16) were reported by Italy. The number of
jihadist terrorist attacks decreased from 17 in 2015 to 13 in 2016, of which 6 were
linked to the so-called Islamic State (IS).

Apart from jihadist, ethno-nationalist and left-wing extremist attacks, an increasing
stream of violent assaults by right-wing extremist individuals and groups was
noted across Europe, in particular over the past two years, targeting asylum
seekers and ethnic minorities in general. An average of nearly 10 attacks a day were carried out on refugees in Germany in 2016, according to Germany’s Interior Ministry, as reported in open source media."

Ezra Levant and the like are wrong when they claim terrorists are just after non-Muslims. Muslims are victims of terrorism to a far greater extent than non-Muslims. Here’s the truth.

“In cases where the religious affiliation of terrorism casualties could be determined, Muslims suffered between 82 and 97% of terrorism-related fatalities over the past five years.”

“Between 2004 and 2013 about half of all terrorist attacks, and 60% of fatalities due to terrorist attacks, took place in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan – all of which have a mostly Muslim population.”

“Most terrorist attacks are rooted in geopolitics. Religion is certainly a part of them, but it is not the only part.”

Or is pointing out that Muslims are victims of terrorism to a far greater extent than non-Muslims and in EU, White people are responsible for the vast majority of terrorist incidents not good for generating web traffic and selling books?

Hey Rebels,
I’m getting more responses from MP’s as a result of my e-mail campaign. (Liberal and Conservative)
Thought I would share a typical Liberal answer and what I sent back. Enjoy!

Dear Tammie,

Thank you for taking the time to write me with your concerns regarding the most recent decision in Omar Khadr`s case.

On July 7, 2017 the Honourable Ralph Goodale, Minister of Public Safety, the Honourable Jody Wilson-Raybould, Minister of Justice, and Steven Mackinnon, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Public Services and Procurement, announced a settlement with Omar Khadr, bringing his civil case against the Government of Canada to a close.

The Supreme Court of Canada has already found that Canada had violated Mr. Khadr’s rights. The Harper government went to extreme lengths to fight it in the courts and were rebuked three times by the Supreme Court of Canada: in 2008, in 2010 and again in 2015.The government’s total legal costs of the various court actions have already cost around $5 million.

As a result, there is no disputing that the government would have lost this case, and at great expense to taxpayers. Consequently, the Government of Canada has apologized and agreed to a settlement. The details of the settlement are confidential.

I have shared your thoughts with the Hon. Ralph Goodale, P.C., M.P. Minister of Public Safety & Emergency Preparedness. Thanks again for taking the time to write me. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact my office.

Sincerely,

Hon. Patty Hajdu, P.C., M.P.
Thunder Bay –Superior North

cc. Hon. Ralph Goodale, P.C., M.P. Minister of Public Safety & Emergency Preparedness
____________________________________________________________________________
I sent Hon. Member Hajdu the following response"
Dear MP Hajdu,

Thank you for taking the time to respond to my e-mail.

A normal Prime Minister would have vehemently disputed a payout to a convicted terrorist in court. This was a political decision which backfired on the Liberal government.

Consider this:
High treason

(1) Every one commits high treason who, in Canada,

(a) kills or attempts to kill Her Majesty, or does her any bodily harm tending to death or destruction, maims or wounds her, or imprisons or restrains her;

(b) levies war against Canada or does any act preparatory thereto; or

© assists an enemy at war with Canada, or any armed forces against whom Canadian Forces are engaged in hostilities, whether or not a state of war exists between Canada and the country whose forces they are.

Omar KHADR is guilty of HIGH TREASON under Sections B & C.

71% of Canadians don’t believe the government’s explanation, or , PM Trudeau’s gross exaggeration of “possible costs between 30 and 40 million dollars”. The SCoC did not attach any monetary compensation or apology. Given Khadr’s conviction and footage of building IED’s in Afghanistan, the court could have awarded him nothing, or maybe one dollar to make a statement.

When is PM Trudeau going to admit whoever gave him this advice had another agenda on the table.

Again, I appreciate your effort in responding to my letter.

- Bunch of 7th century savages. There’s a need to get the word out to as many people as possible & we sure can’t expect the mainstream media to do it.

- Did the Muslims Trudeau met at the Calgary stampede admire his socks as well? Voters need to wake up. The longer this idiot man-child is in office the more damage this country will take. The West is being destroyed by an orgy of weakness instituted by socialists. This time their disgusting experiment won’t kill thousands or millions but billions.

- Trudeau’s gift to terrorist Omar Khadr (then handing many millions more to the Clinton foundation & them more money to Syrian terrorists) follows a pattern of virtue signaling to the most fanatical of leftist groups. The idiot man-child has been doing this his whole life, it’s just now he’s doing it with taxpayer money instead of his trust fund.

- Thank you Ezra & Rebel team for getting word of these atrocities out there.

I’m quite happy to pay my monthly subscription fee directly to Rebel Media, they can’t work for free & equipment doesn’t fall out of the sky for the team to use.
Paying for the documentary is reasonable, as is the monthly subscription rate.

If Ezra is considering selling the doc to netflix, then perhaps I should ask if the nightly shows can appear on netflix as well? I will pay for netflix, but not a rebel sub.

I thought Trudeau forked over the money out of fear of upsetting the Muslims.

““Christians are the worst part of Canadian Society”, Justin Trudeau, Debate Post, March 28, 2017 "

That statement people, combined with his unethical “love” for terrorists, & all his deep admiration for Marxist despots & his despise for our military personal should be sounding alarms for what that lunatic POS PM has in mind for the majority of Canadians. Be aware! TruDope is a “chip” off the ol’ block Castro. Remember, his dad (supposedly) was an avowed communist & his mamma was a bi-polar whore. JustIn TruDope is an aberration of evil.

@ Billy Howard – Andrew Sheer is a Lieberal! His waffling on the Paris Fraud and his sneering grin should be enough to wake people up that Sheer is just a wolf in sheep’s attire. Any press on him would surely expose his true intent. Believe me, those f**kin Lieberals are a bunch of Taqiyya spouting seditious, treasonous tyrants. Andrew Sheer has many Lieberal supporters – enough said???
commented 2017-07-18 01:31:00 -0400
Of course more Muslims are killed by other Muslims. Muslims have been killing Muslims for centuries. Which Muslims are the terrorists again? Do we have a ‘team’ in Canada or are we just importing all of them to continue their warring each other in our streets? I am not really concerned with Muslims killing other Muslims unless it is brought to our neighbourhoods.
All anyone has to do is to pick up a Koran and read some history to know what Muslims think of apostates and non Muslims. It is time we concentrate on helping the true victims, and leave the Muslims to their hatred for each other, which is something we cannot change.
I don’t see what bringing it here will accomplish.

Billy Howard, I agree with you that Rempel avoided answering when Tucker Carlson asked if this was Trudeau’s way of “giving the finger to the U.S.”. That’s exactly what it was, even down to Trudeau announcing the $10.5 million dollar reward to Khadr on America’s Independence Day. An announcement that was a real slap in the face to so many of both Americans and Canadians.

Thank you Ezra and Faith and the Rebel team for showing the truth about the Christian genocide that is happening in the Middle East and that so many have no idea is going on. And our politicians don’t seem to care.
commented 2017-07-17 23:17:49 -0400
Thank you very much Faith and Ezra for your trip and reporting on the Christians of Irak. It is disheartening to see what the western supposed elite has been doing by importing the wolves and abandoning the sheeps to their deaths. How can we let that happened? After the Holocaust, I never thought that another generation would let such evil happened again. And I am part of this one, it is not history. Like many, I feel rage and shame.
All well to listen to the sad news and to comment on the internet, but what are we, the people, doing to stop this insanity?
commented 2017-07-17 21:38:17 -0400
Kudos to the Rebel team reports from Iraq.

Instead of Rempel, why wasn’t Andrew Scheer on Tucker Carlson: the #1 show in America? He had a chance to show America who the next (hopefully) prime minister would be. Scheer could have really laid into Trudeau. Very strange.
Michelle Rempel could have laid into Trudeau as well, but didn’t. She blamed the settlement on the gov’t 5 times, and on Trudeau 3 times. This was ALL Trudeau’s doing.
Also, when asked if this was “giving the finger to the US”, she avoided answering, when we all know Trudeau despises Trump and certainly knew this Khadr deal would piss him off.
What’s with the CPC giving Trudeau the “kid glove” treatment?
commented 2017-07-17 21:29:57 -0400
It is signs of the end times, and very few care that Christians are attacked or suffer around the world, these events have been foreseen two thousand years ago.

Ezra and Faith, I will purchase a copy of the documentary when it’s ready for distribution.

Liberal immigration policies are ill-considered, unfounded, and, the system leaves Canada’s security at risk. Trudeau gives muslim migrants preference; leaving true refugees in dangerous areas with no protection. This is indefensible!

The Khadr backroom payout is receiving more media attention in the US – so glad to hear it! Americans are asking the all important question, “What is the Canadian Prime Minister doing giving a convicted terrrorist millions of dollars? What a coward! What a moron! What a despicable politician!”
I apologized to American friends, and, said this action is a betrayal to Canadians, Americans, Speer family and Laine Morris. A shameful decision which affects us all. I explained there is a crowdfunding initiative to help the Speer children, and we care about them.

I don’t doubt Trudeau is working the phones to get Khadr’s sister out of her jam in Turkey, nothing about him surprises me anymore.
