'Your liberal and democratic principles are worth nothing here,' he warns

The exiled Chaldean Archeparch of Mosul, Amel Nona has some stern words of warning to those in the West, who think that the persecutions of Iraq "can't happen" where they are. "Our sufferings are the prelude of those you, Europeans and Western Christians, will also suffer in the near future," Nona says.

'Our sufferings are the prelude of those you, Europeans and Western Christians, will also suffer in the near future,' We think that these tragic events do not affect us. Archeparch Nona says.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - In an exceedingly powerful message, Nona points out that Christians have been in Mosul for 1700 years and are now being driven out or killed by the Islamic State.

"Our sufferings are the prelude of those you, Europeans and Western Christians, will also suffer in the near future," We think that these tragic events do not affect us. Archbishop Nona says. "I lost my diocese. The physical setting of my apostolate has been occupied by Islamic radicals who want us converted or dead. But my community is still alive."

"I lost my diocese. The physical setting of my apostolate has been occupied by Islamic radicals who want us converted or dead. But my community is still alive," Archbishop Nona says.


Nona then offers a harsh argument against open border policies as practiced by many western nations. "Try to understand us," Archbishop Nona pleads. "Your liberal and democratic principles are worth nothing here.

"You must reconsider our reality in the Middle East because you are welcoming in your countries an ever growing number of Muslims." Nona then say that many think these immigrants are coming to find jobs or to escape violence. In fact, Nona says, many are coming with missionary purposes, to convert in one way or another everyone to Islam.

Nona then says that our constitutional and sentimental views almost make us blind not to the event but to its causes.

"Also you are in danger. You must take strong and courageous decisions even at the cost of contradicting your principles," Nona says.

Backing up Nona's argument is that fact that many Muslims who immigrate into Europe or America often do not assimilate. They form their own enclaves where they can practice their own religion under their own law.

"You think all men are equal, but that is not true. Islam does not say that all men are equal. Your values are not their values,' Nona says. "If you do not understand this soon enough, you will become the victims of the enemy you have welcomed in your homes."
