Christian Persecution

Little Girl’s Last Words When ISIS Set Her on Fire Will Leave You Speechless

MuslimsRadical Muslims are notorious for their persecution of Christians in the Middle East, murdering untold numbers of people for refusing to bow the knee to Islam. One such story of a young girl burned alive by ISIS militants is making its way around the Internet, due largely to her simply amazing final words. From Catholic News AgencyOne account told of a couple whose children had been captured by ISIS militants. When they answered their door one day, they found a plastic bag on their doorstep. It contained the body parts of their daughters and a video of them being raped and tortured. Another recalled a Christian woman from Mosul who answered the door to find ISIS foreign fighters, demanding that she leave or pay a jizya tax. She asked for a few seconds, her daughter being in the shower, but the fighters refused to give her the time. They put a torch to the house, burning and eventually killing her daughter. The girl died in her mother’s arms, but her last words were “Forgive them.” That is truly a heart that has been captured by the grace of Jesus Christ and is a powerful testimony to what His love is really capable of. I don’t know very many folks who would truly follow in Christ’s footsteps and pray for their enemies while being burned alive, so this girl deserves to be hailed as a hero of the faith. Let’s hope action is taken soon to help bring this awful persecution to an end so the gospel of Christ might go forward, winning hearts and minds and bringing the tyranny of radical Islam to an end.
