KJOL Music Notes
Are you "N"?

I am n

The Voice of the Martyrs is partnering with Integrity Music to aid Christians displaced by ISIS and to bring greater awareness to the "I Am N" movement.

The movement gets its name from the the Arabic letter ن  ("N") that ISIS terrorists have painted on the homes of Christians in Mosul before forcing them to flee the city.

Why “N” and why Mosul?  First, a little background. 

Mosul is the former ancient kingdom of Nineveh, mentioned in the Book of Jonah.  Christians had lived in Mosul and the Nineveh plains for centuries.  When ISIS terrorists overran Mosul, many Christians were killed and many others fled their homes with just the clothes they were wearing.

The Arabic letter ن  ("N") stands for Nasara (Nazarene), a term used by Muslims to mean “followers of Jesus of Nazareth.”  A few days after painting the homes, the Islamists gave the Christian families an ultimatum:  convert to Islam, pay an exorbitant tax, or leave.  All those who refused would be killed.

More than 100,000 Christians refused to deny Christ and left everything behind.  VOM says “The symbol meant to mark Iraqi Christians for exile or death has become a symbol of hope and courage, as we commit to stand with our brothers and sisters facing Islamic extremists.”

To bring attention to the plight of the Iraqi Christians, Integrity Music has produced an album with various artists including Paul Baloche, All Sons & Daughters, and Desperation Band, whose song “Make A Way” is heard on KJOL.
