Christian population in Iraq dwindles.

A new report indicates that the number of Christians in Iraq has
dropped to a shocking low.  Numbers released by the ministry Aid To The Church
In Need finds that there are barely 35,000 believers still living in Iraq.  At
the turn of the 21st Century, the Christian population was estimated to be
about 1.5 million.  Near constant persecution by radical Muslims is the primary
reason for the drop in Christian numbers.  Now that ISIS has been defeated in
Iraq, there is hope that some believers will return to the country and try to
resume their lives.  However, experts say hundreds of thousands have fled for
good.
