Here’s a short interview of the brother of two of the martyrs who said this incident, “helped us strengthen our [Christian] faith.”
What a remarkable testimony to the teaching of Jesus about forgiveness!
Host: I want to ask you a question on your faith…Would you get upset or someone from your family get upset, if we ask for forgiveness to those who killed your brothers?
Brother: “Today I was having a chat with my mother, asking her what she would do if she saw one of the ISIS members on the street. . . . She said she would invite him home because he helped us enter the kingdom of heaven . . . . I asked her, “What will you do if you see those ISIS members passing on the street, and I told you that’s the man who slayed your son?” She said, “I will ask for God to open his eyes and ask him into our house, because he helped us enter the kingdom of God!””
