There was something about the way Hillary Clinton said it that touched a nerve.
People are dying, the Secretary of State said forcefully and finally with an emphasis on the word dying that can only be born of outrage.
She was talking about Syria and the brutal repression by embattled President Bashar al-Assad against a popular uprising an uprising that Clinton and President Obama hope leads to the toppling of the Assad regime.
The comment came during a June 13 press conference at the State Department as Clinton stood at a podium next to the Indian foreign minister, answering a hand-full of questions from an international press corps.
There she was, a prominent member of the administration using the bully pulpit on behalf of human rights in this case, the right of people not to be killed wantonly for their political beliefs.
She has said the same thing about Syria and Assad at other State Department news conferences that I have attended.
It was the same idea she expressed on May 24, when she finally released albeit three months late -- the 2011 Human Rights Report, a yearly report that documents the state of human rights and human rights abuses in the nations of the world
...Christians and others are being targeted and killed in the Middle East and Africa and far too many other places on the globe right now.
Wheres the outrage over them?
...Whatever the reason, the war against Christians isnt even on the radar screen of the administration

Wheres the outrage over them?
I've heard exactly one politician say the first word about protecting Christians out there in the world in the last fifty years or thereabouts, i.e. Владимир Путин, the president of Russia. Kind of gets to you, doesn't it?
Egypt, Syria, Nigeria, Christians are targeted and the Islamism-enabler Obama’s hands are not clean.
She used the same rhetoric about Egypt and Libia to wipe out their leaders and replace them with the Islamic Brotherhood......Get it?!
WTF are we doing in middle east affairs?? PERIOD !!
“People are dying.”
Yes. Murderous Muslim terrorists—and the women and children they always hide behind—are dying.
That bothers Hillary. But not the deliberate murder of Jewish or Christian women and children by Muslim terrorists—with nobody hiding behind them.
Muslims like to murder women and children, as well as hide behind them and whine.
Suppose that there was a country where Muslims were being massacred every month and mosques and imams were being targeted and destroyed. Could anyone imagine the Obama Administration choosing to remain silent in the face of such atrocities?
A mob attack on Muslims in Burma immediately resulted in a condemnation from the State Department and a call for its government to make more concessions to Muslims. But a car bombing and shooting attack on two churches in Nigeria have not been similarly commented on by the State Department, sending the message that Muslim life is precious, but Christian life is cheap. The Muslim dead of Burma are sacred, but the Christian dead of Nigeria are only more dead infidels.
Boko Haram, the Islamic terrorist organization responsible for both attacks, has yet to be declared a terrorist organization by the State Department, despite having carried out religiously motivated bombings and shootings that have killed over a thousand people in the last few years alone. These numbers begin to approach the level of murders carried out by the Taliban in Afghanistan.
The Boko Haram Terrorist Designation Act of 2012, introduced by Senator Scott Brown, mandates that the State Department produce a detailed report that either designates Boko Haram as a terrorist group or justifies why it should not be listed as a terrorist group.
A similar bill was introduced by Congressman Meehan in the House. It is a testament to the obstructionism of the State Department and its whitewashing of Boko Haram that such a bill even had to be introduced. While the State Department has played delaying games, the bodies of murdered Christians have continued piling up.
It is also tragically noteworthy that all eleven sponsors of the Boko Haram Terrorist Designation Act, in both the Senate and the House, have been Republicans.
Not a single Democrat appeared to be willing to stand up for the human rights of Nigerian Christians. If the Boko Haram Terrorist Designation Act comes down to a vote, that vote should be seen as nothing less than a test of complicity for individual Democrats in the cover-up of Nigerias Islamic genocide by the Obama Administration.
Reagan called Russia the Evil Empire but it as Communism that is the Evil Ideology
Destroying traditional cultures and communities in Europe, Asia, and Africa has been a bipartisan hobby for American presidents since Wilson. In his fraudulent and murderous adventure into Iraq, Bush, cheney, and Rummy casually wiped out Christian communities dating from apostolic times. Under Obama, our demented civic religion of “democracy” is now accomplishing the same result in Syria, Lebanon, Eqypt, and Palestine.
