Leave, or we will behead you

From Pepe Escobar of Asia Times

Members of a well-to-do family tell how they received the infamous "letter under the door". The whole family left Dora, Iraq for Shi'ite Kadhimiya - site of a revered shrine - and left the house empty; it has been noted by "scouts", and is now probably occupied by Salafi-jihadis ... Mizar Yalda, a 48-year-old priest, says that according to his calculations, 190 Dora residents have been kidnapped since the 2003 invasion, and have paid a collective ransom of more than $480,000. If you are a Christian and you want to keep living in Dora, you must convert to Islam. Not only that, you must also cooperate with al-Qaeda in Iraq, and must accept al-Qaeda refugees into your house when they are trying to escape hot pursuit. If you refuse, you will be killed.
