Religious Freedom in Iraqi Kurdistan

Iraq The Model:

This story [in Arabic] from Radio Sawa brought some encouraging news about the state of freedom of faith in Kurdistan where hundreds of people have recently converted from Islam to to Christianity without facing the threat of being persecuted.

Of course it doesn't matter much if they converted to Judaism or Buddhism instead of Christianity or even the other way around; one's faith is one's choice and what we should care about is to see people practice this right without fear from being punished.

Indeed. In this sense, Iraq is definitely better off than Afghanistan and practically the entire Islamic world.



I'm not surprised that Kurdistan is amongst the first to allow conversion to other faiths. From everything I've heard about that country, it's supposed to be an amazing place. Freing the Iraqi Kurds alone has made the Iraq war worthwhile.
