ISIL Spearheads Worldwide War On Christians
INVESTOR'S BUSINESS DAILY ^ | July 22, 2014 | IBD EDITORIALS

Posted on 07/22/2014 8:24:29 AM PDT by raptor22

War On Terror: The fanatical Islamist group torches an 1,800-year-old church built before the founding of Islam and forces the Christian residents of Mosul to convert, pay a tax, leave or face execution. This is what the West faces.

'From Boston to Zanzibar, there's a worldwide war on Christianity," Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul said at the Values Voters Summit last October, an annual conservative gathering.

The number and intensity of attacks was so great, he said, that it's "almost as if we lived in the Middle Ages."

That was an era when the swords of Islam had conquered much of the Middle East and North Africa and threatened the citadels of Christian Europe — an era to which Islamist terror groups like the Taliban, Nigeria's Boko Haram and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) seem eager to return.

A good reason to take the literal meaning of “gird your loins”, “Buy a sword” kinda bent...

Not that it was something to ever look forward to, but hey, I do not believe Christians started this thing, and we have been turning the cheek for as long as I can recall...

So if this is the way it needs to be, okey dokey...

Stand for the truth and defend it to the death, and in the Way we’ve been instructed.

This is a timely reminder that the decision for or against the Lord is coming due.

This is what the West faces

Only if the "West" is too terrified to fight the barbarians.

Obama is at the head of the War on Christianity. It’s the one place he isn’t content to lead from behind.

So clearing a city of Christians would be ethnic cleansing right?

Or another way of looking at it is as removing innocent victims in case something unfortunate happened to the the city.

Saudi Arabia has created a Frankenstein’s monster over which it is rapidly losing control. The same is true of its allies such as Turkey which has been a vital back-base for Isis and Jabhat al-Nusra by keeping the 510-mile-long Turkish-Syrian border open. As Kurdish-held border crossings fall to Isis, Turkey will find it has a new neighbour of extraordinary violence, and one deeply ungrateful for past favours from the Turkish intelligence service.

As for Saudi Arabia, it may come to regret its support for the Sunni revolts in Syria and Iraq as jihadi social media begins to speak of the House of Saud as its next target. It is the unnamed head of Saudi General Intelligence quoted by Dearlove after 9/11 who is turning out to have analysed the potential threat to Saudi Arabia correctly and not Prince Bandar, which may explain why the latter was sacked earlier this year.

IMO, ISIS is only waging a war on Syrian Christians, who they'll soon eliminate after a couple millennia. First the Jews, then the Sunday people. The worldwide war on Christians is being waged by, to be politically correct, radical Islam. There being a passive form I suppose, out there saving Christians. Just like they saved their Jewish neighbors in the 40s, 50s, and 60s. Who'd been in most of these places longer than Christians.

Don't tell anyone in the administration or Congress, Christians in these places are doing fine. Honest.

Dear Sunday people:

Our enemies are your enemies, so let us hang together, lest we hang separately.

Sincerely,
Saturday people.

Too late in Mosul, ancient Nineveh, Saturday people are no more. One of the achievements of the 20th century.

But we can belatedly organize. I propose the Eastern Minority Alliance (EMA). Kurds, Baluchis, Alawites also welcome, so long as they make nice.

In a sane world, America and Europe would protect them.
