The Daily Telegraph published Tuesday an article by Tim Stanley entitled "The West owes Iraq more than words."
The author said during his recent visit to troubled Iraq that a large proportion of Christians were still afraid to return home and many were trying to emigrate.
He added that "life, difficult and hell for minorities since the invasion of Iraq in 2003," noting that in 2014, the Islamic state organization dominated the Nineveh Plain in northern Iraq and forced the Christians there to convert to Islam, death or escape.
He added that thousands of Christians fled to Kurdistan, explaining that despite the defeat of the state organization, Iraq today is witnessing mass exodus either to Australia or Canada, but not to the United States under the administration of US President Donald Trump because he does not receive the Christians of Iraq in the same as the former president Barack Obama allows it.
Iraqis do not think of coming to Britain because of visa requirements, he said.
The author of the article that he was invited during his visit to Iraq to meet the Pope of the Sheikh Yazidis in Iraq has responded to the invitation, and met the man who arrived in the eighties of age in the presence of his son and brother.
"We are going through a crisis," he said. "He called for the killing of thousands of Yezidi men and raped many women. When they disappeared, they took with them 9,000 girls, and no one knows where Are they now? "
"The Yazidis are living in the camps today and suffering physically and psychologically. There are no jobs and we want our parents to return to their homes," he said.
