I am now in possession of a Christian bible written in the ancient language of Aramaic — that’s what Jesus spoke.
It’s written from right to left, like Hebrew is; looks a bit like Arabic. But it’s not. It’s the language of the Biblical Holy Land.
This Bible is from one of the oldest Christian communities in the world, in the region of Nineveh, which is in what today is called Northern Iraq. If you know your Bible, Nineveh is a city that Jonah visited.
Near the ruins of Nineveh is a city of 6,000 people called Batnaya. They’re Christian. They’re an ethnicity called Chaldean. Ancient Christians.
There's a big church in Batnaya. Beautiful, gorgeous, ancient in design, but modern in construction.
But in the fall of 2014, the Islamic State invaded Batnaya and murdered many of the Christians living there. Their preferred method is slitting throats, like Mohammed did in the Koran. They kill them; they take girls for rape slaves.
So the 6,000 Christians in Batnaya fled — all of them. They fled to Kurdistan, where they live in refugee camps. Some of whom have tried to come to Canada — but Justin Trudeau prefers Muslim immigrants, not Christians.
Which brings me to this Bible. It’s desecrated. It’s ripped. An Islamic state terrorist went into the church, that beautiful church, and took this Bible, and tried to rip it to shreds — but that’s very difficult, it’s like ripping a phone book. So he shot it with a gun, aiming in the centre of the cross. A symbolic target — to desecrate the symbol of Christianity; a symbolic murder of Christ himself, perhaps.
For two years, Batnaya was occupied by the Islamic state, until it was recently liberated by Kurdish and Iraqi forces. A friend of mine went to the church and recovered this Bible and shared it with me.
The church was torched. It was defiled in every possible way. They toppled the cross on the roof. I’m sure they did every humiliating thing they could — they torched it; I’m rather surprised they didn’t dynamite it too.
That is the Islamic State.
That is precisely the region where Canada had CF-18 jets, to fight against the Islamic State, until Trudeau withdrew those jets and abandoned the Christian refugees. He prefers unvetted Muslim migrants.
I’ve been thinking about this Bible all day since I saw it. The Aramaic words in it; the bullet; the church; the town; Trudeau abandoning Christian refugees; the world ignoring them. I’m putting together a plan. I’m still working on it; I want to be careful and thoughtful; I’m not ready to roll it out yet — but I will probably in a couple of weeks when I do some more inquiries.
