Victims of the last attack on Christians in Iraq were two brothers killed in a garage in Mosul. They did not live in a particularly safe area of the city and wanted to move but could not afford to do so. Now another Christian family destroyed, one of the brother's leaving behind a wife and two kids in high school, and now this family has two less men to protect and provide for them.
Christians now are divided, some are planing to leave, some wanting to stay & some moving to Kurdistan region, especially when Mr.Talabani suggested " Kurdistan is opened for Christians", of course that encourage Christians to move there.
But, however, that will not solve the main problem, in my opinion, if all Christians will localize in North of Iraq, then the other area will be empty from Christians, so that means Iraq will divided to Shia in south of Iraq, Sunni in middle, Kurds, Christians & other minorities in north of Iraq, & when Iraq's divided to 3 parts, will get weak country, it is not like one unit.
Are the reasons of attacking Christians; political one more than religious one? or it is both of them?
