“If they keep taking out city after city, the whole world’s safety is threatened. I hope the world acts soon." -- Mark Arabo, Iraqi-American community leader

June 17, 2014 (San Diego’s East County) – The violence engulfing Iraq as terrorists capture citiy after city is a “living nightmare that won’t go away” for Chaldean Christians across America, Mark Arabo, a first-generation Iraq-American and president/CEO of the Neighborhood Market Association, told East County Magazine. “No question about it, this is a slow genocide."
Now, Chaldeans across American are asking the public to help by signing a petition urging President Barack Obama and Congress to join with other world leaders and provide safe passage out of Iraq for Christians trapped with no safe place to go, now that Syria is in civil war and the terrorists in Iraq aim to impose Sharia law.
