Representative Calls for U.S. Support to Unified Christian Army


Since the beginning of the war in Syria and Iraq erupted, the differing Christian groups have struggled to survive the onslaught by ISIS. They were for, whatever reason, fighting independently. Mostly because these groups do not see eye to eye, and also because of their geographical separation. But that is all about to change.

Because of this change, there is little excuse for America not to support them. And they have a champion calling for this support to start now.

The United States “should prioritize” providing military support to Iraqi Christian militias that have joined forces to retake their homeland in northern Iraq from the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL), urges Rep. Jeff Fortenberry (R-NE).

Fortenberry, a member of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on State and Foreign Operations, spoke to Breitbart News on Tuesday, a day after the Chaldean Syrian Assyrian political parties, backed by their religious leaders, reached an agreement to unify their armed groups in an effort to seize and secure their homeland in Iraq, which was captured by the ISIS in 2014.

This would mean that there would be trained and seasoned troops in the fight against ISIS in Northern Iraq. Troops that pose no real threat to our ally Turkey. Troops that we do not have to worry about going against us at a later time.

This will not be a force of potential terrorists. They simply wish to reclaim and defend their homes. And they wish to do this under the authority of their government.

Breitbart continues:

Emmanuel Khoshaba Youkhanna, one of the Christian leaders who signed the statement, explained, “This is the first step to unify all our forces under one leadership.”

Youkhanna, who also serves as the commander of the independent Christian militia known as Dwekh Nawsha (“self-sacrifice”), noted that the unified Christian force is seeking official recognition from the U.S.-backed, Shiite-led Iraqi government in Baghdad, emphasizing, “We don’t want to be an outlaw militia.

If only this administration would listen.
