Flashback–Archbishop of Mosul: ‘I Lost My Diocese to Islam…You in The West Will Become The Victims of Muslims’

The Catholic archbishop of Mosul, Iraq, who lost his diocese to the Islamic State last year and is now in exile in Erbil (Iraqi Kurdistan), warned that the suffering in Iraq was only a prelude of what European and Western Christians will “suffer in the near future,” and stressed that the West is endangering itself by welcoming “an ever-growing number of Muslims.”

He also emphasized that while the West says “all men are equal,” Islam “does not say that all men are equal,” and “their values” are not our values.

“Our sufferings today are the prelude of those that you, Europeans and Western Christians, will also suffer in the near future,” said Archbishop Emil Nona, as reported in Corriere Della Sera on Aug. 9, 2014.

“I lost my diocese,” said the archbishop.  “The physical setting of my apostolate has been occupied by Islamic radicals who want us converted or dead. But my community is still alive.”

“Please, try to understand us,” he said. “Your liberal and democratic principles are worth nothing here. You must consider again our reality in the Middle East, because you are welcoming in your countries an ever-growing number of Muslims.”

“You are also in danger,” he continued.  “You must take strong and courageous decisions, even at the cost of contradicting your principles.

“You think all men are equal, but that is not true: Islam does not say that all men are equal,” said the archbishop.  “Your values are not their values. If you do not understand this soon enough, you will become the victims of the enemy you have welcomed in your home.”

Emil Shimoun Nona is the archbishop for the Chaldean Catholic diocese of Mosul, which is in northern Iraq. The Chaldean Catholic Church is an Eastern Rite church in full communion with the bishop of Rome, Pope Francis, and the Catholic Church worldwide.

Reportedly, all Christians have fled Mosul, many of them into Jordan. The Islamic State jihadists told the Christians  in Mosul in June 2014 to either convert to Islam, pay a tax or be killed, reported the New York Times.

Mosul is Iraq’s second largest city and has been a home to Christians for 2,000 years.

The Islamic State is the group that is responsible for the Nov. 13 massacre in Paris, France, which killed at least 129 people and injured 352 people.

FEMA Scrambles For Storable Food, Contacts Patriot Company For Emergency Delivery

(Thomas Dishaw) recently received an email from FEMA requesting availability and shipping times for truckloads of emergency food supplies.

Why is the Government sourcing a popular survival food company for emergency shipments of storable food?

Are they preparing for something big? An earthquake? A war? Famine? Or can we just write this off as FEMA compiling a database of possible suppliers?  Will this information be used to target patriots or, even worse ,corner the market and possibly inflate the prices of storable food?  Only time will tell. I will say it’s better to be prepared than on the outside looking in. released this statement via their blog:

“here we are, August 2013 and FEMA once again is trying to buy up large stockpiles of food. And they don’t want anyone to know it, and they want to take immediately delivery… I’ve studied history. That is what got me into preparedness in the first place. History has shown us time after time that those who depend on the government to come to their aid during a disaster are the ones waiting the longest for help. Sometimes help never comes…or comes too late.

I do not believe these critical emergency food supplies should be in the hands of the government, stored in some secret warehouse only to be brought out and distributed to their own agencies first,  with the rest of us getting table scraps long after we need it.

These life-saving meals belong in the hands of people like you and me. This is why I declined the opportunity to sell to the Department of Homeland Security.

But let’s not forget the most important part of this: Why the sudden sense of urgency? What do they know that we do not?

I’m not one to cry that the sky is always falling, but when DHS/FEMA make a move to quietly buy up emergency food supplies and ask how much we can ship within 24 hours…I think this is far enough outside the realm of what is “normal” to beg some questions.

Fortunately I’ve been in this business long enough to predict what happens next. One or more of the other “survival companies” out there will inevitably see a chance to make a quick buck from Uncle Sam (which is really paid for by us, the taxpayer). This could create a run on many of the core raw ingredients used by emergency food makers that will cause a ripple effect throughout the industry as supply chains become bottle-necked handling the FEMA/DHS request.”

This is extremely disturbing to know.

I myself don’t want to be left in the dark.
