Only Christian in Kurdish Government is Sworn in on Bible Burned by ISIS

A new government official in a region affected by the Islamic State was sworn into office on a Bible burned by ISIS.

Ano Jawhar Abdulmasih Abdoka, the new Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) Transportation and Communications minister, used the Bible burned by ISIS in the Ninevah Plains, standing in solidarity with persecuted Christians and showing that believers in Christ will remain in a region once occupied by ISIS forces.

The new Christian minister, along with other believers, witnessed “horrible atrocities” carried out by ISIS against minorities in the region and said everyone has been “affected” by the Islamic radical terrorist group.

“For me, as a Christian, as the only Christian minister in the new cabinet of the KRG, the Kurdistan Regional Government, I decided to swear on a biblical manuscript, part of which was burnt by ISIS members in the Nineveh Plains,” Abdoka told Rudaw prior to the ceremony Wednesday.
