Christian Iraq at risk

"A Final Appeal: Save Christian Iraq" (Sandro Magister, www.chiesa, May 28, 2007):
It is the only country where the liturgy is still celebrated in Aramaic, the language of Jesus. But Christianity is in danger of dying out there. Killings, aggression, kidnappings. And now also the "jiza," the tax historically imposed by Muslims on their "infidel" subjects, those who have still not fled the country.
