Michael Yon: Come Home

This generation's Ernie Pyle is Michael Yon. He describes a stunning scene in Baghdad that you will never, ever, ever see reported in today's mainstream media.

St. John's Church -- located in the heart of Baghdad -- celebrated Mass.

Today, Muslims mostly filled the front pews of St John’s. Muslims who want their Christian friends and neighbors to come home. The Christians who might see these photos likely will recognize their friends here. The Muslims in this neighborhood worry that other people will take the homes of their Christian neighbors, and that the Christians will never come back. And so they came to St John’s today in force, and they showed their faces, and they said, “Come back to Iraq. Come home.” They wanted the cameras to catch it. They wanted to spread the word: Come home. Muslims keep telling me to get it on the news. “Tell the Christians to come home to their country Iraq."

If you don't start to tear up reading his report, well, I'm not sure you're human.

Go to Michael's site and give him a couple of bucks. He has absolutely no support from the mainstream media, so it's up to you and I to fund his incredible reporting.
