While President Barack Obama supplies billions of dollars of amenities to illegal aliens crossing our borders, he remains mute and inactive on helping quell the massive persecution of Christians currently taking place in Iraq.
Militant fighters known here as ISIS -- the radical Sunni Islamic State terror group that overthrew Mosul and now threatens Baghdad -- has declared a new Islamic state in Northern Iraq. This caliphate is built on jihadist principles and now these fanatics are driving Christians from their homes.
Just today, this radical al-Qaida breakaway group overran a cluster of predominantly Christian villages alongside the country's semi-autonomous Kurdish region, sending tens of thousands of civilians to flee from the area. Reports indicate that about 40,000 Christians forced to leave their home are now stranded on a mountaintop with no route for escape - and no food or water in the meantime.
The Christians' only option, according to ISIS, is to convert to Islam, pay a severely punitive tax, or die, while dozens of churches are being destroyed and doors to the homes of Christians are being marked in red by ISIS militants to speed up the process of this mass religious ‘cleansing.’
News reports also abound of vastly widespread barbaric decapitation and other deadly tortures of Christians by this godless, inhuman group.
And what is our president doing about it? Nothing. He's too busy making sure that immigrant lawbreakers crossing our own borders are well fed and cared for at taxpayer expense here in America, while doing nothing to close the borders so that ISIS members cannot enter our country.
The problem is, if we don't stop this stupendous persecution and massacre that is happening at blindingly alarming speed, it will not abate. And then what? Or does nobody care as long as we don't see it with our own eyes on our own soil? Well, that may just be a matter of time if the leader of the "free world" fails to show leadership at all.*
*UPDATE: As of this morning, the US dropped two bombs on Iraq and is delivering food/water to the refugees. Will this be enough to stop the ISIS Christian persecution or did it just poke a stick in a hornet's nest?
Here's what Abu Mosa, a spokesman for the terror group, told VICE Media, “I say to America that the Islamic Caliphate has been established. Don’t be cowards and attack us with drones. Instead send your soldiers, the ones we humiliated in Iraq. We will humiliate them everywhere, God willing, and we will raise the flag of Allah in the White House,” he added.
But since Obama is vacationing in Martha's Vineyard while all this is going on, we can't be sure what part of this he takes seriously. In the meantime, let's pray for peace and for an end to Christian massacre.
