Iraqi Christians rally at White House: ‘Obama, Obama, where are you?’
The Washington Times ^ | 7/28/2014 | Cheryl K. Chumley

Posted on 07/28/2014 1:56:46 PM PDT by markomalley

Hundreds of outraged Iraqi Christians staged a rally outside the White House, demanding to know why President Obama wasn’t providing any aid to the scores of faithful being persecuted by radical Muslims around the world.

The rallies were replicated at cities around the world, including in Paris, The Hague, Cologne and London, Breitbart reported.

Among their chants, Breitbart reported: “Obama, Obama, where are you? Iraqi Christians call for you.”

It was just a week ago that terrorists with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant ordered Christians out of Mosul and demanded they convert to Islam or die.

“Iraq’s Christians are being ignored by the United States, the United Nations and the human rights organizations,” said one bishop who made a 12-hour ride from Chicago with his parishioners to the Washington, D.C., rally, Breitbart reported. “For us, America is a symbol of freedom and protection of human rights. I think of America in World War II, when America came to the rescue of Europe. Then, the enemy was the Nazis. Today it is ISIS. The names are different, but the religious cleansing is the same.”

Because he hates Christians and loves the bearded savages who hate Christians and Jews.
That’s why.

Actually he returned to his office today just in time to give a short speech in praise of all that the Muslim community has contributed to the growth of this nation.

He works about three hours total all day, so he probably just couldn’t squeeze them in.

I think all requests that Obama do this or that are vain. Instead, people should rally, demonstrate, protests against the people who are supposed to keep 0 in check. Congress, state governments, and so forth.

Plus, he’s for what’s happening to the Iraqi Christians, wants the same for all Christians, and is devising plans to that end.

Where is he?
He's visiting his muzzie friends, playing golf, and chuckling every time he hears about Jews and Christians dying in the middle east.

One bishop?

Only ONE bishop?

One bishop from Chicago.

Where is the blessed, revered, Pelosi loving USCCB, sorrowing over illegal gang members they want to call “ children”, and cartel traffickers they want to call “refugees”, “like Mary and Joseph”.

Stunning crickets.

From the Assyrian Church of the East, by the way.

Well, go figure! An Assyrian bishop! Good grief, Mark, that’s an outrageous embarrassment for the Roman Catholics.

Dear Christians in Iraq,
Forget Obama. Call the French. At least they acknowledge your peril and are welcoming you as refugees.

They are not Palestinians. Israelis are not being accused. Therefore, they don’t exist.
