ISIS has just viciously abducted 220 Christians in Syria.

It is devastatingly likely that ISIS will attempt to behead, crucify, or even burn them alive in its ever-increasing brutality.

The jihadist army ravishing Iraq, Syria, and even Libya has indiscriminately killed men, women, and children of all religious minorities, especially Christians.  But now, more than ever, it is specifically targeting Christians for slaughter.

Fox News is reporting:

Activists monitoring the conflict in Syria said Thursday that the number of Christians kidnapped by ISIS terrorists in their most recent offensive has risen to at least 220.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that the militant group has captured Assyrian Christians from 11 villages near the town of Tal Tamr in Hassakeh province. . . .

ISIS began abducting the Assyrians on Monday, when militants attacked a cluster of villages along the Khabur River, sending thousands of people fleeing to safer areas. The Syriac National Council, a Syrian Christian group, told Reuters that hundreds of Christians have fled to the province's two main cities, Al-Hassakeh and Al-Qamishli, which are held by the Kurds.

Younan Talia, a senior official with the Assyrian Democratic Organization, said IS had raided 33 Assyrian villages, picking up as many as 300 people along the way. It was not possible to reconcile the numbers, and the fate of the hostages remained unclear.

Other reports indicate:

It is thought that the militants are holding the seized women and children in houses in the ISIS-held town of al-Shadadi and using them as human shields from air strikes.

Now CNN has reported that the terror group are now planning to release a video as early as today, where they will threaten to kill the hostages if air strikes don't stop.

ISIS’s kidnapping of hundreds of Christians comes just a little over a week after beheading 21 Egyptian Christians captured from Libya.

ISIS is seeking to murder Christians, destroy America, and rule the world with an Islamic Caliphate.

ACLJ Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow recent interviewed the Christian Vicar of Baghdad, The Reverend Canon Andrew White, about the plight of Christians in the wake of ISIS terror (watch above).

We cannot remain silent as our Christian brothers and sisters are systematically slaughtered by ISIS.

America must take action to defend them.  If we don’t act now, there will be another grizzle video of more than 200 Christians martyred at the hands of ISIS.

The collective conscience of our nation can’t bear the thought.
