An Iraqi TV host cried on air over the brutal ISIS persecution and murdering of Christians.
One panelist began by saying: “(It is terrible) when people come and force you to leave your home. This is what happened to the Christians today.”
The host, Nahi Mahdi, responded: “Yes, the Christians. Today… I cried at home.”

The host then began to cry and wiped off his tears with his keffiyeh.
The guest then stated: “This is one genuine Iraqi we have here.”
Mahdi collected himself and then said:
They are our own flesh and blood. Some of them have left for Sweden or Germany… who does (ISIS) think it is to drive out our fellow countrymen? I want to take the people of Mosul and the government to task. They must take immediate measures to help these people. Our country is like a rose, and its petals are the Christians, the Arabs, the Kurds, the Sabians, the Shabak people… these are all our countrymen. I don’t know what to say about this.
An Iraqi poet who was a guest on the show responded:
The Christians have done nothing wrong. They haven’t hurt a soul. On the contrary, they are a peaceful people, who love all sects. They are honorable people, with high moral values. They always maintain their sense of justice. We stand a hundred per cent in solidarity with them.
