Islamic State terrorists in Iraq beheaded four Christian kids who refused to renounce their faith and become Muslim.

Canon Andrew White, the “Vicar of Baghdad,” fled to Israel from Iraq a few weeks ago and then told Christian Broadcasting Network of the horrifying scene.

“ISIS turned up and said to the children, ‘You say the words that you will follow Mohammed,’ ” he said in a video posted at CBN’s website. “The children, all under 15 — four of them — they said, ‘No, we love Yeshua [Jesus], we have always loved Yeshua.’ “

And the terrorists’ response?

“They chopped all their heads off,” Mr. White said, the New York Post reported. “How do you respond to that? You just cry.”
