The background of our site depicts a typical Islamic State (a.k.a. Isis, Isil, daesh) execution, a reality that Christians in the Middle East face daily. Our brothers and sisters there are suffering murder, crucifixion, rape, kidnapping, theft, special taxation and intimidation under the hand of the Islamic State group.
Below is the Arabic letter ن (which sounds like “noon”) and is the first letter of the word “Nasrani” (Nazarene, or Christian) in Arabic. It’s what Isis is spray painting on the houses of Christian families, and has become a symbol of support in the West.
We stand with the Christians in Iraq and Syria! Pray for our brothers and sisters there. To find out more ways to get involved, please go to Voice of the Martyrs at persecution.com.
