Christians throughout Iraq celebrated the Christmas holiday at churches and public gatherings across the country this year, marking the first-time residents of Mosul were able to openly worship since being liberated from ISIS just months ago.
From Baghdad to Mosul, videos of Christians attending Christmas services flooded social media; with joyous congregants publicly worshipping in what one twitter user described as “ISIS’ nightmare.”

In July of this year, the Iraqi government officially announced that ISIS has been completely eradicated from Iraq’s second largest city and home to a large proportion of the Muslim nation’s Christian community.
Mosul had fallen to Islamic fighters more than three years ago in June of 2014, when ISIS reclaimed the city after months of fierce fighting against coalition forces.
WATCH: Vile Iranian Commander MOCKS 'Cowardly' US Soldiers
A Commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard viciously mocked United States service members this week, telling a group of Iranian fighters in Syria that American soldiers were “cowards” who needed to “wear diapers” while fighting in Iraq.
IRGC-Quds Force Commander General Qasem Soleimani was addressing supporters in Al-Bukamal, Syria when he praised the Iranian soldiers bravery in the face of America and Saudi Arabia, saying “God wants this people to be victorious.”
“Look at the American forces today. They are more than one million strong. But despite their numbers and their capabilities, they are cowards,” said an official transcript from the Middle East Media Research Institute. “When they arrived in Iraq, they brought diapers for their soldiers, so that they could urinate in them when scared. You, on the other hand, have achieved victory with light weapons, Why? Because you are willing to make sacrifices.”
“Why does God make the Iranian people victorious? Why does God give victory to the Islamic Republic today?” asked Soleimani. “I believe that the victories become bigger and that their scope increases every day. Neither America nor Saudi Arabia can harm this people. God wants this people to be victorious. They are nothing next to God’s will, because our people is ready for martyrdom, and therefore, deserves victory.”

FIREWORKS: Keith Olbermann DESTROYED After Saying Trump Worse than 9/11
Disgraced cable anchor and hyper-liberal newsman Keith Olbermann viciously lashed-out at President Trump on Friday, saying the Commander-in-Chief is more harmful to the country than Osama bin Laden, the September 11th terror attacks, or ISIS.
The former MSNBC host was speaking with ‘The View’ when he was pressed on previous comments he made, comparing the election of President Trump with the devastating attacks on 9/11.
“You said recently that Trump and his family have done more damage to America than bin Laden and ISIS combined. Do you believe that?” asked ‘The View’ panel. “You think that bin Laden did less to damage America than President Trump?”
“Yes,” said Olbermann.
“Can I tell you something? When I hear rhetoric like that… rhetoric like that is so damaging. And by the way my brother fought in the Iraq War and deployed numerous times before we start tit-for-tatting,” fired-back Meghan McCain. “Bin Laden was dedicated to the destruction of everything we hold dear and our freedoms.”
“I’m so tired of this kind of rhetoric… I’m exhausted with it. Do you want President Trump to fail? Do you want America to fail? Because I’m curious,” she added.
