Five Year Old Son of Anglican Vicar of Baghdad Cut in Half by Islamic State Jihadists

BAGHDAD (Worthy News)-- The five-year-old son of a founding member of Baghdad's Anglican church was cut in two during an attack on the Christian town of Qaraqosh by the Islamic State, according to the Anglican Communion News Service.

Canon Andrew White told ACNS he had christened the boy several years ago.

"I baptised his child in my church in Baghdad. This little boy, they named him after me – he was called Andrew.

"This town of Qaraqosh is a Christian village so they knew everybody there was part of their target group. They [IS] attacked the whole of the town. They bombed it; they shot at people."

IS captured Qaraqosh after Kurdish forces were forced to withdraw; although the townspeople fled to Irbil, reports suggest it may be the next target.

White said Anglicans have been working hard to provide a lot of support for the Christians who have fled Mosul and Nineveh.

"Anglicans are literally at the forefront of bringing help in this situation and there's no-one else. We need two things: prayer and money. With those two we can do something. Without those we can do nothing."

Anglican leaders, notably the Archbishop of Canterbury, have expressed dismay at the situation in Iraq.

"What we are seeing in Iraq violates brutally people's right to freedom of religion and belief, as set out under Article 18 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights," said Justin Welby, the ABC. "It is extremely important that aid efforts are supported and that those who have been displaced are able to find safety. I believe that, like France, the United Kingdom’s doors should be open to refugees, as they have been throughout history ...

"With the world's attention on the plight of those in Iraq, we must not forget that this is part of an evil pattern around the world where Christians and other minorities are being killed and persecuted for their faith. Only this week I received an email from a friend in Northern Nigeria about an appalling attack on a village, where Christians were killed because of their faith in Jesus Christ. Such horrific stories have become depressingly familiar in countries around the world, including Syria, South Sudan and the Central African Republic.

"We must continue to cry to God for peace and justice and security throughout the world. Those suffering such appalling treatment in Iraq are especially in my prayers at this time."

  1. Where is all those groups condeming Isreali? Where is any Muslim group condeming the murder, the violence, the extermination of Christians in Iraq, in Iran, in Syria, in Gaza? Why is everybody whom has been shouting "foul" wrt Gaza not shouting "foul" against the Islamists?

  2. The problem is that the Jihadists the islamics enjoy promoting their killings through the Media they don't deserve the attention that the world news promotes. Their God faith is dead. It's not a God it's a crazy man's idea's who claims Jihadists is a God. A crazy man who kills and forces his opinion through violence. Your followers only follow your false ideas for fear of dying. there is only one God. JESUS CHRIST of Nazareth who died for all who would receive him. There is no other God other than the God of Israel.

    • JESUS SAVES: Even thought what you say is very true GOD the FATHER in Heaven is the "ONLY" GOD, there is no other, however they do not believe that. That is not what they have been taught since they were born. They think Islam is the right religion and that Allah is their god. To tell them any different is like trying to turn the tide back out to the ocean, very difficult indeed.
      The scriptures tell us that when they kill they will actually think they are doing their god Allah a favor, and they want to kill to get on his good side. They are promised by their teachers (virgins for the men and brand new shoes for the women). NO, none of that makes any sense to us, but they are not "us". They are not civilized as we are and their teachings are different. Radical to be more precise.
      To abandon that religion is to be killed. They are devoted to it.
      Do you think it will spread to the whole world? It just might and sooner than we think. A new One World Religion is coming and it's Islam. It's supposed to be a combination of the Catholics, the Christians and the Muslims all combined in "unity" to be one church.
      If you recall just weeks ago Pope Francis, James Robison, Kenneth Copeland all met together in Rome to start the ball rolling on this new commitment to the new Religion. Joel Osteen and John Hagee are all for it and together "all" of them will form this new Religion, it's coming, it's just a matter of time. Enjoy what you can now, while you can.

      • Lord our God Jeus Christ is strong than any one you mentioned. If God willing, all these things you mentioned, which are only human, it will not prevail. No body can stop God work!

  3. Isis has condemned themselves, and everyone they care about -- (if these demon-possessed, unclean animals are even capable of caring) -- to hell on earth and hell after earth. God sees all their sins and He will do unto them as they have done unto others.

    • CARING??? These animals don't care about anyone or anything except themselves and their own agenda. If the truth is known they are demon-possessed by Satan himself. What they do is demonic, serves no purpose, worst than bad, just plain sinful. Judgment day is coming for "everyone" and they will get what is rightly due. Any punishment that we give them would be justified but the LORD has the ultimate plan for them and they will pay dearly. Rest assured that none who do this kind of evil will EVER go unpunished. That in itself is a comforting thought.

  4. Yes Dries Dreyer.. exactly.. It makes no sense at all. None of this does. Despicable evil being perpetrated in plain sight against good people and so many who protested over Israel merely protecting themselves from the same hatred coming from Hamas in Gaza, seemingly have no comment to make.. Astounding. But evil will not win.

  5. They will do anything at all, to get a 2 minutes of fame ! Yet, they have NO HEART,NOR SOUL IN WHAT THEY DOTO GETTING IT EITHER.... WASTE OF A CHILD, & these scum need to be given their just deserts...

    • JOJO: I am with you and know that my GOD is a just GOD. He is fair in all of His corrections. In the book of Revelation it talks about all of the judgments that are coming on the people for their evil ways and sins. Seals, Trumpets and Bowls. All of them will get their just due with these judgments.
      The first two sets are the Wrath of Satan and "everyone" will be here for them but then JESUS will come again and He will remove all of those who were sleeping in their graves and all of the ones who were still alive (alive after the tribulation) and they will go to be with Him forever. Then (after the church is removed) GOD will punish all of them with the bowl judgments, which are the Wrath of GOD. The church is not appointed to those, as they are the final judgments. Read what the bowl judgments are...Hell on earth, that's what they are. No soul alive will endure such punishment. He will grant to them what they deserve...The day will come. All this apostasy will be punished. People think they're fine and they will get away with their sins and they are so wrong. Scripture says, "The soul that sins, it shall die. They will die a spiritual death (meaning no Kingdom of GOD in their future). They will be separated from GOD and all that is good forever. It's their choice.

  6. PLEASE CORRECT: It was not the son of Canon Andrew White, Vicar of Baghdad. It was a parishioner of his church. White was ordered out of Baghdad months ago by his bishop because of ISIS ready to behead him.

  7. My Friends whatever is going on in the world is the fulfilling of prophesies, and God is in control - do not make the creator of the universe a small god He is the God of gods, the Lord of lords - He created all for him.

    For In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe. The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs.
    For to which of the angels did God ever say,
    “You are my Son;
    Today I have become your Father”?
    Or again,
    “I will be his Father,
    And he will be my Son”?
    All those things happening including the killing of people by the Muslims IS NOT IS NOT a surprise to GOD -

    Jesus is coming back at the Rapture:
    The Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.

    Jesus must remain in heaven until the times of restoration of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began.
    If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most pitiable.
    But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep in him. For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive. But each one in his own order: Christ the first fruits, afterward those who are Christ’s at His coming. Then comes the end, when He delivers the kingdom to God the Father, when He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power. For He must reign till He has put all enemies under His feet. The last enemy that will be destroyed is death. For “He has put all things under His feet.” But when He says “all things are put under Him,” it is evident that He who put all things under Him. Now when all things are made subject to Him, then the Son Himself will also be subject to Him who put all things under Him that God may be all in all.

    As Peter said - I repeat: “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.”
    And with many other words he testified and exhorted them, saying, “Be saved from this perverse generation.”

    We are in that last generation as Jesus prophesy is fulfilling all over the world: Jesus said to the disciples, “The days will come when you will desire to see one of the days of the Son of Man, and you will not see it. And they will say to you, ‘Look here!’ or ‘Look there!’ Do not go after them or follow them. For as the lightning that flashes out of one part under heaven shines to the other part under heaven, so also the Son of Man will be in His day. But first He must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation. And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.

    “In that day, he who is on the housetop, and his goods are in the house, let him not come down to take them away. And likewise the one who is in the field, let him not turn back. Remember Lot’s wife. Whoever seeks to save his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it. I tell you, in that night there will be two men in one bed: the one will be taken and the other will be left. Two women will be grinding together: the one will be taken and the other left.

    Today is legal for a same sex to get married, just as in the time of Lot: Now before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both old and young, all the people from every quarter, surrounded the house of Lot and they called to Lot and said to him, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may have sex with them carnally.”

    Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all things take place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will by no means pass away.

    “But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly. For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.”

    Do not be alarmed just Become Born Again by the Spirit of God - Today Confess your sins to Jesus He is faithful and just to forgive all your sins and become a child of God ready to receive him to whichever comes first either by death or by the rapture -

    Because the world is in rehearsal of Rev 16:12-16 that it say: Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, so that the way of the kings from the east might be prepared. And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon (devil), out of the mouth of the beast (World Governments), and out of the mouth of the false prophet (False Religions in the world headed by the Pope). For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

    “Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame.”

    And they gathered them together to the place called in Hebrew, Armageddon.
    Do not make those words go by you today – this is eternal life or eternal punishment
    Many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake,
    Some to everlasting life,
    Some to shame and everlasting contempt.
    Anyone not found written in the Book of Life of the Lamb was cast into the lake of fire.
