‘Convert Or Face The Sword’: Iraqi Christian Recalls ISIS’s Deadly Deadline

An Iraqi Christian, Mikha Qasha, fleeing from Qaraqosh, has given a personal account of members of the Islamic State coming to his house and threatening him to leave, convert to Islam or face the sword. Qasha told Mid-East Christian News, specializing in Christian minorities in the Middle East, that ISIS members gave him a week to think about it; the threat came with weapons pointed at his head. According to MCN Direct, others who fled from a district in Nineveh, and from Qaraqosh and Bartella, said IS is now imposing a conversion deadline of one week for any non-Muslim. Qasha’s neighbor, a young man who fled the city this week, said he was hiding in his home with his father when IS members found them on Aug. 17. They gave them a week, until Sunday, to convert to Islam or be killed.
