Hat tip Investigative Project on Terrorism and Philly.com
Steve Emerson's Investigative project on Terrorism has cross-posted an article by Stu Bykofsky, a columnist for the Philadelphia Daily News, which I think is important enough to also cross-post here. It concerns the world's inaction to the on-going persecution of Christians in Muslim lands.
And why the Christians? Well, the Jews were basically driven out of Muslim countries in the late 1940s when Israel was created. To kill the Jews, they will have to conquer Israel. The Christian minority, however, is there for the killing.
Is it not time for Christians and Jews to stand together? And don't forget the Buddhists, Baha'i and Hindus. It is disgraceful that the world community, as represented by the UN and major powers like the US, will not raise their voices against what is happening to Christians in Muslim lands. We are so concerned with giving refuge to Islamic refugees (real and imagined-like the Brothers Tsarnaev) that we forget about who the real refugees are these days.
I am not calling for the US to send in the Marines. What I do expect, however, is that President Obama, Secretary Kerry, and our UN ambassador Samantha Power raise their voices publicly. This they have not done. I expect the US to make it clear to the countries involved that continued aid will depend on how they treat their religious minorities. I would also expect the US (and other Western countries) to open its arms to Christian and other religious minority refugees. We could also restrict immigration from Islamic countries until this persecution ( not to mention terrorism) stops. (Save your cards and letters. This is not the first time I have said this.)
Instead, we get silence from our leaders all over the West. Will we stand by and allow another Holocaust to occur at the hands of a latter-day Nazi force? I say again; save your cards and letters. What is being done across the Islamic world to its religious minorities is pure Nazism.
