It’s really a tithe Christians are forced to pay to Islam–to keep from being shot, beheaded, raped, kidnapped, and burned from those espousing a “religion of peace.”

The Associated Press reported that at least half of Iraq’s Christians have been forced to leave the country since the U.S.-led invasion in 2003–the remaining Christians face the prospect of Shariah law,  the goal of Sunni Muslims.
