Christians urged to stay in Iraq
"Please stay and help rebuild the nation - we need you!" That is the message being sent to Iraq Christians from the Vice President, Adel Abdul Mahdi this week.
250,000 of 800,000 Christians in the country have already fled from persecution at the hands of extremists, suicide bombing from insurgents and the excessive hardships brought about as a result of the Allied invasion.
The Vice President told a Conference in Paris this week that the Christian community is integral to the future of Iraq. He has called on Christians to remain in the country - and for the international community to help Iraqi security forces provide suitable protection for them.
