ISIS Burns Bibles, Christian Books in Mosul

(Fox News Video)

A new video released by the Islamic State (ISIS) shows Bibles and other Christian materials being burned in a bonfire in the Iraqi city of Mosul, Fox News reports. 

The video, titled "Diwan of Education Destroys Christian Instruction Books in Mosul," was shot by the ISIS "morality police," Christian Today reported.

The video was made public just as the United States is considering whether to declare ISIS's treatment of Christians as genocide. 

"It's another example that ISIS means what they say," David Curry of Open Doors USA told FoxNews.com. "That’s what makes the debate so powerful. They want elimination and they are very serious."

Mosul was once considered the center of Christianity in Iraq, but now is believed to have no Christians left. When ISIS took over, it demanded Christians convert to Islam, pay a tax or leave. Most, if not all, have left.

Iraq as a whole was once home to 1.5 million Christians. The number is now at 275,000.
