Christians in Iraq

"A car bomb exploded near a church as worshippers left Sunday Mass, killing at least four civilians and injuring 18 in one of several attacks on Iraq's beleaguered Christian minority. . . . Iraq's Christians have often been attacked by extremists, and many have fled the country."

One unintended consequence of the Bush / Cheney war in Iraq has been the destruction of one of the world's oldest Christian communities.
