Iraqi Christian Radio Reaches Millions Amid ISIS Threat

WASHINGTON -- Iraq is considered one of the most dangerous countries in the world for Christians. Some two-thirds of its once large Christian population have fled the country in the past 12 years alone. And even in cities not controlled by ISIS, like Baghdad, Islamic jiahdists have placed a bullseye on the backs of believers in Jesus.
Most of Baghdad's Christians have fled the endless violence. But one Iraqi pastor has not only stayed behind -- he's leading Iraq's first Christian radio station.
"When we started this project, it was a pioneering project," Pastor Maher Fouad told CBN News. "No one ever applied for a radio station in the history of Iraq, especially a Christian radio station."
