ISIL to Iraqi Christians — Bring us your money or you will be shot

Ishtar Broadcasting, an Iraqi news agency reporting on the plight of Christians in Mosul, released a video showing Christians recounting their stories of persecution and threats of death at the hands of ISIL militants before fleeing Mosul. In one interview, a Christian woman said that the militants came to her and said:

“Bring your money and give it to us. If not, each one of you will be shot in the head… You’ll receive one shot in the head each.”

The video ends her crying and quoting from the New Testament:

“I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves.” — Matthew 10:16 (NIV)
