Their 5 year-old son "killed for wearing a cross", Iraqi family tells the awful tale

“The people who fought us and forced us to leave were not strangers, they were our neighbors.”

Doha and Adeeb are Iraqi Christians forced to flee to Lebanon for safety after their son, David, was killed by ISIS, (“blown up!” says the grieving Doha).

Now in exile, they want the world to know. “Iraq,” says Adeeb, “is gone with the wind.”
