In an interview with the organization A Demand For Action, which advocates for the protection of Assyrian, Chaldean and Syriac Christians, an anonymous Christian woman living in Qaa asserted that she and others in the village are not going anywhere despite the dangers and close proximity to the Syrian civil conflict, the Islamic State and other terrorist groups.
“We will not allow Lebanon to become a new Iraq,” the woman was quoted as saying. “We will not flee, we have weapons and are ready to protect ourselves.”
The woman referenced a notion that Islamic jihadis believe that they will be sent to Hell and won’t be granted 72 virgins if they are killed by a woman. She promised to make the terrorists’ worst fears come true if they plan to come to her town again.
“Jihadists think they go to Hell if they are killed by women,” she said. “We will send them straight to Hell.”
