Christian teacher has throat cut in Mosul, plunging city in fear again

ASIANews:

Shdha Elias, 54, was a Chaldean teacher. Her body was found by police. Church source tells AsiaNews that she joins a long list of Christian martyrs in the city. Tensions between Sunnis and Shias are on the rise as no real solution for peace and national reconciliation appears possible.

Mosul (AsiaNews) – Police in Mosul found the body of a Christian woman with her throat cut. The gruesome discovery was made today in an area where attacks have been perpetrated in the past against members of the city’s Christian minority, some, like abducted Bishop Faraj Rahho and Fr Ragheed Ganni, murdered.

Sources told AsiaNews that the victim is Shdha Elias, a 54-year-old Chaldean, who worked as a teacher “in a school in the al Bath neighbourhood.” She “lived however in Bar Nirgal, near the university”. With her death, she joins “the long list of Christian martyrs in Mosul.”

For the source, “Tensions between Sunnis and Shias are running high across Iraq, not only in the North. And peace and national reconciliation appear far off.”

Mosul is a stronghold of Sunni Wahhabism, which is closely tied to Saudi Arabia. For experts on Iraqi politics, the aim is “to set up a state based on Sharia,” with the Qur’an and the Sunnah as the basis of legislation and “Islam as the only state religion”. In such a system, members of other religions can choose between conversion, flight or paying taxes for non-Muslims.
