"Christians in Iraq are being hunted, murdered, and driven from their homes in a wave of ethnic cleansing perhaps more brutal than any in the community's 2,000-year history. Before the U.S. invasion, Iraq was home to more than a million Christians- a small but thriving minority, which Saddam Hussein protected. Under the American occupation, Iraq's Christian community, one of the oldest in the world, has been driven towards extinction."
