‘ISLAMIC STATE (ISIS) IN PALESTINE’ threatens to massacre Christians in Jerusalem unless they leave the area
Flyers bearing the ISIS black flag have begun circulating in the area of Eastern Jerusalem. The leaflets reportedly threaten Christians who remain in the area with death if they don’t get out after the Muslim observance of Ramadan is over, saying: “Christians and nonbelievers: Go away now or you will be killed.”
Christian Examiner A translation of the message reveals that the group seeks “revenge” for “those who collaborate with the Zionists” and “Christian collaborators” because they “encourage Muslims to leave their religion and become more secular and open, and they spread evil,” reports The Jerusalem Post.
The note also states “ISIS soldiers will work to kill these people so this country is clean of them and… will clean this country and the Muslim Quarter from these Christians during this holy Ramadan.” It concludes with a statement that because Christians violated a pact made when Muslims conquered Jerusalem they must leave or die within one month.
