Crucified for ChristSyria, September 28, 2015: Christians in Syria are being killed in ISIS. They are being crucified in public. They are being terrorized. So far the charity, the Barnabas Fund, has liberated 158 Christians from Syria and found them a new home in Poland.

Its founder and international director Patrick Sookhdeo has recently returned from a visit to eastern Europe, where he was seeking refuge for the hundreds of thousands of Syrian Christians who continue to live under the tyranny of IS. According to Sookhdeo, Britain’s offer to take up to 20,000 Syrian refugees inadvertently discriminates against the Christian communities most victimised by the Islamic State butchers.  He said: “The British government has said it will take 20,000 refugees and we have said, ‘Will you not take some Christians?’ But we have had no reply.”
In areas controlled by the ISIS in Syria, Christians have been crucified, beheaded, raped and subjected to forced conversion. The report also says Christian children are also being sold as slaves. Sookhdeo said: “It is like going back 1,000 years seeing the barbarity that Christians are having to live under.

Crucifying these people is sending a message and they are using forms of killing which they believe have been sanctioned by Sharia law.”  More than 700,000 of Syria’s population of 1.1 million Christians have already been forced to leave as IS militants expanded into the northwest of the country.

There are now no more than 250,000 Christians living in Syria.
