Kurdish Authorities Allow Anti-Christian Shoes to Be Sold in North Iraq
Excerpt: According to an article published on a Polish language website, shop windows in a region dominated by Kurds in northern Iraq displayed footwear with a crucifix embossed on the sole. The shoes are sold, among others, in a center called "Mega Mall" in Erbil. The website reports that an investigation conducted by some local Assyrian activists revealed that the footwear was produced by a Turkish company called FLO, located in Gaziantep, in southeastern Turkey. Kurdish shops import the shoes and distribute them in their stores, entice their customers to trample the cross, holy symbol of Christianity and sign of hope and peace.
