Catholic World News - August 20, 2014
The president of the autonomous Kurdish region in Iraq has offered to provide arms for Christian volunteers, creating self-defense units to resist the Islamic State, the Fides news service reports.
Massud Barzani, the leader of Kurdistan, said that his government would do “everything in its power” to safeguard Christian refugees. He encouraged the refugees "not to think about emigrating and leaving the Country, because the threat of terrorism is temporary and terrorists will be defeated.”
