A member of Congress is calling out Western civilization, President Obama and Congress for their ‚Äúdeafening silence‚ÄĚ on the purge by radical Muslims of anything Christian in Iraq, especially Mosul, where Christians had lived for some 2,000 years.

The warning from Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., was blunt.

‚ÄúChristianity as we know it in Iraq is being wiped out.‚ÄĚ

On the House floor, he addressed the fact that Muslims, members of a terror group that has been called Islamic State of Syria and al-Sham, or ISIS, and also Islamic State, have been sweeping across parts of Iraq, killing and destroying.

‚ÄúI want to read parts of an email I received yesterday from someone in the ground in Iraq: ‚ÄėAll Mosul churches and monasteries are seized by ISIS. There are around 30. The cross has been removed from all of them. Many of them are burned, destroyed and looted. Many others are being used as ISIS centers. The religious Sunni, Shiite and Christian tombs are destroyed in Mosul. This destruction is endangering very ancient sites, such as prophet Jonah‚Äôs tomb, which was broken last week, according to many reporters,‚Äô‚ÄĚ Wolf said.
