Turkey, Armenia: "100 Years: Remembrance, Rejection, and Steps of Reconciliation for Genocide of Christians"

While today [April 24, 2015] marks 100 years since the horrific killing of millions of Christians on the basis of their religious and ethnic identity, be that Armenian, Greek, or Assyrian, it should prompt the world to stop and consider a reality that is happening today.

Across Syria and Iraq, the very places where many of these deaths took place 100 years ago, Christians are once again being slaughtered because of their religious and ethnic identity.

This time it is not at the hands of the Ottoman Empire ruled over by the last Caliph of Islam, it is at the hands of a self-declared “Islamic State” and their supposed renewed Caliph Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

The Islamic jihadists from ISIS are slaughtering Christians and other religious and ethnic minorities by the thousands, and it is happening in our time.
