    ISIS is now preventing Christians from leaving Raqqa, which they have claimed as their capital, for a HORRIBLE reason.

    When they had first taken over Raqqa, ISIS made it clear that Christians had three choices: pay the Jizya, leave or die.According to the journalists in Raqqa(RBSS), ISIS is no longer allowing Christians to leave the city.

    Officials are physically preventing people from leaving in what The Daily Caller is reporting as an effort to use them as human shields.

    “The suffering of Christians began with ISIS control of Raqqa,” RIBSS said on its website about the treatment of Christians under the jihadi militant group.

    “ISIS looks at Christians as infidels loyal to the West more than their loyalty to their homeland which they live.”In the 1920s, Christians constituted up to 30 percent of Syria’s population and had lived there for 2000 years. Popular belief holds that the apostle Paul converted on the road to Damascus, and a small segment of Christians from the town of Maaloula still speak Aramaic, the language that Jesus spoke.

    More recently, 10 percent of Syria’s 22 million population were Christians.Two weeks ago, Sec. of State John Kerry formally declared a “genocide” designation regarding the treatment of Christians and other minorities in Iraq and Syria, after an extensive push with bills in both the House of Representatives and Senate.

    This move comes as enemies of ISIS are approaching and surrounding the “capital.”

    Horrible, the things that Christians must go through over there, shows us how blessed we are. I don't know what was going through the United States' head when we pulled out of the Middle East, we weren't done yet, we needed to finish the war. Sure, it costed a lot of money, but what will the cost be when ISIS forces us to take action again? Would it not have just been better to finish up over there?
