Why is it that to date, France is the only Western country that has offered asylum to the thousands of Christians who have recently had to flee the Iraqi city of Mosul? And what is the international community doing to cut off the weapons supply to the Muslim extremists who are responsible for this mass exodus? According to a July 21 Catholic News Service story, 60,000 Christians were living in Mosul before the 2003 U.S.-led invasion and 35,000 living there in June 2014. However, over the past month, all the Christians in Mosul have had to flee the city or be killed for not converting to Islam.
