I do not know how to measure pain or how to quantify suffering, but one of the ironies of history is that in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the oppressor seems to hate its victim much more than the victim hates its oppressor. I never liked to indulge in comparative martyrology, but Israelis will be well advised to bear in mind that a society that shows insensitivity to the suffering it inflicts should expect an erosion of the expression of sympathy for the suffering it has endured.
How can one describe the prevailing situation seen through Palestinian eyes?

The Patriarchs and Heads of Churches in Jerusalem issued a statement in which they strongly condemns the persecution and displacement of Christians in Mosul, by the terrorists of the the so-called Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (Daash or ISIS)
We, the Patriarchs and Heads of Churches in Jerusalem, are horrified and shocked by the persecution of Christians in Syria and Iraq by the so-called Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), a militant Islamic group.  We are especially alarmed by the ill-treatment of Christians in Mosul, Iraq, who in the last 48 hours were ordered by ISIS to leave their homes by noon on July 19, 2014, or comply with their fanatic demands:  convert to Islam; pay Jizya, a tax imposed on non-Muslim people; or die.
