Freed from ISIS, but Iraq's Qaraqosh is now a ghost town | Al Arabiya - March 2017 |

Nineveh province was the most volatile and dangerous under US occupation and its aftermath. With the papal visit Iraq illustrates it has become a state. A lot of healing is required and no meddling by bombing from international powers are needed.

Christian VP Shunned by Arab States Flies to Kabul | Dec. 22, 2017 |

In the mountains of Syria, the valleys of Lebanon, on the plains of Nineveh, the plateaus of Armenia, on the banks of the Tigris and Euphrates, the delta of the Nile, the fathers and mothers of our faith planted seeds of belief. They've blossomed and borne fruit ever since.

But now that garden of faith, generations in the making, is under threat. It's under threat of persecution and mistreatment. Many of the Christian communities that first embraced the message of Christ are today the targets of unspeakable acts of violence and atrocity.

Finding Afghanistan and Iraq hostile and too dangerous a place, VP Pence received diverse denominations of Christian community for a prayer meeting inside the security of the White House.
