I figured as much. Muslim treatment of non-Muslim minorities in Muslim lands is typically pretty awful. Muslims behave a lot better when they are minorities in non-Muslim countries, but being a religious minority in a Muslim country must be a particular sort of Hell in many cases. Islam has always been like this, and I don’t see anything changing in the future. All of this behavior is justified in the Koran, the Hadiths and even worse, in the rulings of Muslims scholars down through the ages.
I wonder if the Kurdish Muslims will treat these Christians any better.
Most of these Christians are ethnic Assyrians who speak some variant of the Aramaic language.
Saddam was so much better than this.
