Once under the contagerous criminal Saddham's regime.
But in spite of his bedfeloows and embedded Journalists there were many Jews; Christians and Hindus.
After his death i made a short trip.
I have no chance to chat with those Christians ; jews and Hindus.
They were not there.
Gone with the wind
Iraqi problem are these criminal Sunnis backed by saudi arabia, usa and israel, who ruin country and are responsible for majority of these bomb attacks especially on Christians and Shias. Shias are rather tolerant and another religions are no problem for them.

Dee
may i try to type in a better English so that you understand my views.
I have no religious attachment( By birth a hindu) nor any Flag( by adoption a German tax payer.
Just I am curious in this forum to find one critical observation about their religion or about the place of birth.
No I am human- a critical one and not a person to use or abuse with other name.
If you visit Cologne you are well come in my den (dwelling) to sip a glass of beer and eat a sumptuous vegetarian food.

The Christians likely won't survive ... too many murderous radical muslims around. The extremist Sunni and Shia are competing to see who can kill more innocent people.

truly, it was religious freedom there, because global war criminals and thieves from usa and western countries have began their wars, their intolerance, hatred against those Muslims, there were religious stability there and now criminals from usa, england have made everything out of order there, they are responsible for these wars, they want to get rid off these people from their countries , treat them like people the second category, radicalise them and then send them to wars as cannon fodder. And second blame is this sh..tty criminal feudal, liberal capitalism, which destroys jobs, human existance and make slaves from people. By summary- criminals, who rule in usa, britain and other western sh..ts are responsible for it.

That's what you say. I think it goes a little deeper then it's the USA and England's fault. They played a role but this would be an extreme response to that. I don't think what you say excuses the killing, raping, kidnapping, torturing etc. ISIL is doing. I just can't stand bullies.
