Baal worshippers who follow Aala Baal Satan are persecuting and slaughtering Christians. Very few Muslims will oppose them as they too are followers of Baal.

Baal to Aal to Aala. Star and crescent moon association symbolism. Orgies before Baal, deflowering of virgins perpetually. Children passed into the fire of Baal, through being taught hatred and to die for Baal Aala.

Pope calls for prayers as militants chase all Christians out of Mosul

VATICAN CITY (CNS)-- As the last Iraqi Christians in Mosul fled the city, Pope Francis urgently called for prayers, dialogue and peace.

"Violence isn't overcome with violence. Violence is conquered with peace," the pope said before leading thousands of pilgrims gathered in St. Peter's Square in a moment of silent prayer July 20.

"Our brothers and sisters are persecuted, they are chased away," he said, as he assured Christians in all of Iraq and the Middle East of his "constant prayers."

The pope's plea came as the last Christian families living in Mosul were forced from the city after facing increasing threats, violence and intimidation.

The Islamic State group, which has taken control of Mosul, Iraq's second-largest city, was threatening to kill any Christians who did not convert to Islam or pay a tax, Syriac Patriarch Ignace Joseph III Younan told Vatican Radio.

The militants in Mosul also burned to the ground the building housing the Syriac bishop's office, residence and library, and everything inside, he said July 19.

Islamic State fighters "have already threatened that if they don't convert to Islam, all Christians will be murdered. It's terrible! This is a disgrace for the whole international community," he told the radio.

The international community must immediately halt all aid to the Islamic State group, he said.

"Whom are they getting their weapons from? From these extremist nations in the (Persian) Gulf, with the approval of Western political leaders because they need their oil."

The patriarch said the world community must uphold human rights and the freedom of religion.

Baal worshipers today are not identified as such, a Baal (the god of life on earth) subject is anyone who loves the violence and immorality of this world ruled by Satan, so if you are a person who goes to Church and you are immoral or violent or condone violence and immorality then your worship is in vain or worthless.
