In the video posted Tuesday on YouTube, Foley is seen kneeling next to a man dressed in black. Foley reads a message forced on him by his captors that says "America" is his real killer. He is also heard saying, "I wish I had more time. I wish I could have the hope for freedom to see my family once again." He is then shown being beheaded, while the life of another American being held captive is also threatened.
While groups like Amnesty International devote all its attention to painting the thugs in Ferguson, MO, as victims, the mass genocide taking place in the Middle East is largely ignored by supposed humanitarian groups (as is the blatant killing of our policemen here in America - but that's another topic, for another day soon).
In the meantime, we cannot ignore the genocide being perpetrated against Christians by radical Islam - which includes ISIS, Hamas, al Queda, etc. -- just like we could not ignore the genocide by the Nazis in the Holocaust. If anyone thinks there is a difference, they are wrong - except for the fact that radical Islam promises to come to America to carry out its holocaust here as well. The bottom line is that innocent people are being killed for their religious beliefs. That should chill everyone to the bone.
This situation is too serious to ignore. Not since Hitler has the world faced such vicious evil. It is too serious to think that diplomacy has any place. We need to take action. In fact, we need to stand up as one nation and demand action. We should put the fear of Allah in these evil doers. Since we cannot reason with them, these diabolical murderers must be stopped. In addition, every American needs to shake off their moral ambiguity on the issue and stand up loudly against this atrocity. Sign petitions, donate to www.helpiraq.net, write letters to your editors, talk to every citizen you meet on the street, and relentlessly call your legislators to voice your outrage and concern. Whatever it takes.
President Obama took a few minutes from his exclusive Martha Vineyard vacation to give a limp-wristed admonition to the murderers. He said nothing about finding these heinous beings who decapitate Foley. He did say, "no faith teaches people to massacre innocents." Obama needs to brush up on the teachings of Islam, which specifically instructs to kill those who do not follow Islam. But he doesn't want to offend these evildoers. In fact, he has shown more vitriol for republicans and conservatives. But when it comes to Islamo-fascists, he quavers. Regardless, it takes more than rhetoric to stop evil in its tracks. It takes leadership - leadership we simply do not have in our president. Upon concluding his speech, he returned to his cushy vacation. His ambivalence is as disgusting as radical Islam's action are reprehensible. By the time he gets through with our country, we'll have the status of a third-world country, which becomes clearer every day is precisely his goal.
I know this is my third post in a row on this topic, but that's because of the depth of seriousness of this issue. If you do not see the horror and utter danger of what is going on here, and the larger implications at hand, then you truly need to do your homework and take the veil from your eyes. These people are fighting against America, against everything civil, and against religion - all in the name of religion, and we have a president who is on the golf course as we speak. Think about it. An American had his head sliced off with a knife and our president did not see that worth suspending his vacation. This - the genocide and our inhumane president -- is extremely serious and while prayer is essential, action is even more critical, lest this mass genocide continue and spread.
