From Liberated Al-Qosh: Iraq’s Largest Cross Lights Up The Ninewa Skyline For Christmas

by Jonathan Azaziah

Christmas in the Cradle Of Civilization really is the best Christmas. Here in the liberated Assyrian Christian (Chaldean, specifically) town of Al-Qosh, the biggest cross in all of Iraq is decked out in lights and brightening the entire Ninewa Province skyline.

Striking Star Salute to the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), most especially Harakat Hizbullah al-Nujaba and Kata’ib Hizbullah who spearheaded the offensive, for liberating Qaraqosh and preserving its sanctities. The commitment that the people, resistance movements and soldiers of Iraq have to upholding Islamic-Christian unity is, in and of itself, a dagger and a half, nay, TWO daggers right in both eyes of the Zionist New World Order.
