Posted: Thursday, December 23, 2010 at 12:16 PM CT

Los Angeles — Christians who live in Iraq are targets of terror, and becoming an endangered species. That's the disturbing message coming from the Simon Wiesenthal Center, where leaders of many faiths came together to call attention to what's happening.

On October 31st, suicide bombers attacked a Christian church in Baghdad, killing 68 people.

The Christian community says al Qaida has targeted them, and that the church bombing is the latest of many incidents.

Thousands of iraqi Christians are leaving the country.

Rosie Malek-Yonan, author of "The Crimson Field", the story of the massacre of Assyrian Christians a century ago, weighs in on whether history is repeating itself.
