The atrocities committed against Christians by the terror group ISIS in Iraq have a sickening parallel to the Holocaust, says Auday Arabo, a spokesman for St. Thomas Chaldean Catholic Diocese in Michigan.

"This is so, so similar to the Holocaust that [persecuted] the Jewish community during World War II,'' Arabo said Monday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"There's a genocide going on, crimes against humanity and everything else. I just can't wait for the world to see these atrocities that are occurring. These are so horrible.''

The membership of the diocese is heavily ethnic Assyrians indigenous to northern Iraq.

"Every country [must] step up on this issue because it's not just an Iraqi issue or Iraqi Christians,'' Arabo said.

"Christians are being persecuted all throughout the world right now, and minorities are being persecuted in Iraq and these folks, ISIS, they hate us. They hate Americans.''
