Iraqi Archbishop Begs UK To Send Troops To Fight Islamic State

An Iraqi Archbishop has begged the UK to send troops to the beleaguered country, saying it has a “responsibility’ to protect Christian population from being wiped out.

Archbishop Bashar Warda told the House of Lords that there were a growing number of radicalised Muslim youths from Western countries fighting with the terrorists in Syria and Northern Iraq, according to the BBC.

He begged Britain to send troops, saying that what is happening in parts of Iraq under the control of the jihadi group Islamic state is worse than Afghanistan under the Taliban and warning that air strikes were “not enough” to win against the fundamentalists.
