In Memory of Just Man: Professor Mahmoud Al ‘Asali

Saturday, July 26th, 2014

Christian news sources are reporting the courageous death of Professor Mahmoud Al ‘Asali, a Muslim lawyer and professor, who apparently died in Mosul recently at the hands of ISIS extremists for defending the rights of Christians who were being driven from the city.

Civilized society depends on just men like Professor Al ‘Asali. May he be remembered whenever history considers the just.
