Two more Iraqi Christians murdered
Catholic World News - November 22, 2010
Two more Christians were shot down in Mosul, Iraq, on November 22, as the campaign of violence and intimidation aimed at Christians continues unchecked.
Saad and Waad Hanna were killed by gunmen who burst into their shop. After months of occasional bombings, the targeted attacks on Christians have taken a more personal turn, with murderers breaking into homes and workplaces to murder the Christians they have targeted.

How come we never hear about these murders of Christians in Iraq on FOX or any of the other "mainstream" news media? Is it because these Christians don't matter? Or is it because these Christians were able to practice their faith without fear when Saddam Hussein was ruler, and they don't want to let that cat out of the bag?
