Iraqi Muslims Back Social Media Campaign Against Discrimination of Christians

Last edited 22nd July 2014

"I am Iraqi, I am Christian.” Several sectors of Iraqi society took up the phrase in support of Christians communities, under persecution from fighters from the Islamic State. ISIS militants marked the homes of Christians in Mosul using this symbol: the Arabic equivalent of "N,” as in Nazarene.

In response, Iraqi users took to sites like Twitter to express their disapproval. Ali, a young man from Mosul, created the hashtag #I_am_Iraqi_I_am_Christian, which has lit up social media sites.
