The co-founders of Iraq Heritage, (Visiting Fellow at the Brookings Doha Centre) Luay Al Khatteeb and (Executive Director of Iraq Heritage) Aymen Jawad have highlighted the urgency of saving vulnerable minorities – such as Christians, Yazidis, Shia Turkmen and Shabak – in Iraq.
Unfortunately, someone – a sub-editor? – has chosen to illustrate the claim that ‘ISIL burned down the Syriac Catholic Archdiocese of Mosul, Iraq’ with a photograph of the Coptic Church of el-Amir Tadros el-Shatby/Prince Tadros/Saint Tadros the Martyr in Minya, Egypt, which was burned out on the 14th of August 2013. When you search for that image, Google even offers its “best guess for this image: Egypt churches”.
Elsewhere, the cathedral has been categorised as Assyrian or Chaldean.
