Another Iraqi Christian murdered in Mosul
Catholic World News - December 02, 2010
The targeted murder of another Christian in Mosul has drawn a new protest from Church leaders, who are demanding effective government action to ensure their security.
Fadi Walid Gabriel, a Syrian Orthodox layman, was seized by gunman who broke into his home; he was taken to a nearby empty shop where he was killed.
Eight Christians have now been murdered in Iraq-- all in execution-style killings-- since the October 31 massacre at the parish of Our Lady of Salvation in Baghdad.

Why are these murders of Christians in Iraq not talked about in the American media? Is it because these murdered Christians are Catholic and many don't consider them to be "Christian?" Where is the outrage? And I heard G.W. Bush say that Iraq was better off now than it was before we invaded the country. Better off for who?
