  2. Mosul & resident are protected by Human Rights Convention which is Iraq part of and the government should provide you with all your rights regardless of your faith or ethnicity. There is no need to shop around for that. Try to think before any body will lead you a stray , specially those who support the terrorists. Unfortunately , there are too many corrupt people that you are dealing with.
    The only stranger amid you and doesn’t belong there are the terrorists. My advice to you is to do the right thing doesn’t matter how hard it is and have faith in the true God and he will not let you down even if human do.
    If this government failed to represent all Iraqi citizen , they will be voted out because Iraqi can not take any bullshit any more and they had enough. There are Christians , Sunni and people from other faiths trying to help you.
    God let you go through this so you can appreciate how wonderful Iraq is. Abraham the father of Issac and Ismael born in Iraq , that means some thing to God.
    Love to all

  4. I’m a concerned citizen of the USA, TherapyCat on Twitter and Blogger, Owen Scott, III on Facebook. Since learning about your mission via the New Yorker article, I’ve kept close track of your posts and encouraged others to read them, as I will continue until Mosul is free os Daesh. I was already following the progress of the coalition offensive to liberate Mosul and hoping for the best outcome- freedom, minimal harm to the innocent, and harmonious relations between factions and cultures, as perhaps there once was. Your words make Mosul alive and personal. May you and your people live long and prosper.
