Just a few miles away from a desecrated church where ISIS terrorists used Bibles for target practice, I came to a Christian refugee camp in Mangesh, Iraq.
During this leg of our mission to Iraq, I met with a number of “righteous Muslims”:
Kurds who have tried to protect the region’s Christians from persecution.
But why? What sets these Muslims apart?
I believe it is because their primary identity isn’t religious, but a form of civic nationalism.
A shared language and history means Kurdish Muslims have more in common with Iraqi Christians than differences.
PLUS: WATCH as I explain where I stand on the topic of Kurdish independence.
