  • Deadline of noon (9am GMT) today was relayed by mosques in the region

  • Christians have now joined Shiite and other refugees in nearby Kurdistan

  • Militants enforcing an extreme Islamic law launched offensive on June 9

 
Thousands of Iraqi Christians today poured out of Mosul after ISIS jihadis gave them an ultimatum – convert, pay or face death.
 
The Islamic State terror group declared that Christians must either convert to Islam, pay a special tax or leave the city, around 250 miles north-west of Baghdad.
 
If they did not do so by noon (9am GMT) today, there would be ‘nothing for them but the sword’, it said.
 
As militants attempted to break government defences in strategic areas and edge closer to Baghdad, Christians fled to join hundreds of thousands of Shiite and other refugees in the neighboring autonomous region of Kurdistan.
 
Their escape to the safety coincided with the expected homecoming of Iraq’s Kurdish president, Jalal Talabani, after 18 months of medical treatment in Germany.
 
Chaldean patriarch Louis Sako, who heads Iraq’s largest Christian community, said the terrifying ultimatum had been relayed by mosques in ISIS-controlled Mosul.
 
He told AFP: ‘Christian families are on their way to Dohuk and Arbil [in Kurdistan]. For the first time in the history of Iraq, Mosul is now empty of Christians.’

Trojan Horse Pupils: Christians Lie and Wives Must Have Sex or Go to Hell

 
Inquiry commissioned by Birmingham City Council reveals details of religious extremism in 13 schools
 
Children were taught that all Christians are liars and attempts were made to introduce Sharia law in classrooms as part of an alleged ‘Trojan Horse’ takeover plot of Birmingham schools, an inquiry has found.
 
The inquiry commissioned by Birmingham City Council found evidence of religious extremism in 13 schools as school governors and teachers tried to promote and enforce radical Islamic values.
 
Schools put up posters warning children that if they didn’t pray they would “go to hell”, Christmas was cancelled and girls were taught that women who refused to have sex with their husbands would be “punished” by angels “from dusk to dawn”.
 
The report found that the extremism went unchecked because the council “disastrously” prioritised community cohesion over “doing what is right”.
 
It concluded that there was a “determined effort” by “manipulative” governors to introduce “unacceptable” practices, “undermine” head teachers and deny students a broad and balanced education.
 
A detailed summary of evidence suggested that there was an attempt to introduce Sharia law at the Al-Fuqan school, and when a woman was recommended for a job on individual suggested a “man with a beard” was needed.
 
At the Golden Hillock School a teacher allegedly told children at an assembley “not to listen to Christians as they were all liars”. The incident was referred to counter-terrorism police. One teacher at the school also reportedly told children they were “lucky to be Muslims and not ignorant like Christians and Jews.”
 
At Nansen School the study of French was replaced by the study of Arabic and Islamic religious assemblies were reinstated. Christmas and Diwali celebrations were councils, and children were not allowed to use a doll to represent Jesus in a nativity play. A total of 28 female teaching assistants were dismissed.
 
At the Oldknow academy, children were told at an assembly that they should not send Christmas cards and that Mary was not the mother of Jesus. Children were asked whether they believed in Christmas and encouraged to chant “no we don’t”.
