The Vatican has also given a hint that it is considering breaking off dialogue with Islamic representatives if they fail to condemn the persecution of Christians in Iraq.

In a statement, the department in charge of inter-religious dialogue said: “The dramatic situation of the Christians, the Yazidis, and other minority religious and ethnic communities in Iraq demands that religious leaders, and above all Muslim religious leaders, people engaged in inter-religious dialogue and all people of good will take a clear and courageous stance. All must be unanimous in their unambiguous condemnation of these crimes and denounce the invoking of religion to justify them.”
