Iraqs Abandoned Christians
New York Post ^ | July 27, 2014

Does innocent human life matter in the Middle East if it is Christian?

We ask because while Israel’s efforts to defend itself against terrorism from Hamas have provoked worldwide condemnation and demonstrations, the ethnic cleansing of a Christian community that has been in Iraq for more than 1,600 years continues with only a whimper of protest.

To an increasing number of people, among them Americans, Christians and Jews are deemed expendable.

And Pope Francis tells us we need to welcome the illegal immigrants, who are already being fed, clothed, and sheltered, but he does nothing to support those Catholics who are being persecuted and martyred in the Caliphate. If he’s so willing to go to Lampedusa, and to the U.S.-Mexico border to show his solidarity with the immigrant, why doesn’t he go to Syria and Iraq to show his solidarity with them?! He should just go and share their fate. How would the government of Syria or Iraq really stop him? Sure, he might be martyred by the Caliphate, but that kind of goes with his job. Just ask St. Peter. Quo vadis, Francis?

Why should he? He is of the opinion that Islam is a ROP.

Has anyone asked brother Jeb what his opinion of Islam is? What about Christie?

It is absolutely essential for the voters in 2016 to know what any of the POTUS candidates’ attitude on Islam is.

Where is that great Christian—Putin? Shouldn’t he be protecting Christians from the Calaph—we know he hates the IS and backs their enemies in Syria. He’s helping the Iraqi with airplanes and stuff—where is his support for them? Zip—as far as Christians go—he’s no better than Obama.

This is too bad. Maybe next time when we try to nation build someone will remind us that this is what happens. As if Cambodia and South Vietnam were not good enough reasons.

When are we going to see that we cannot keep doing this crap.

When are we going to see that generations of Americans have been “deleted” by our government because we wanted to impose our will where it wasn’t wanted bad enough.

When are we going to see our enemy is not ISIS, it’s DC.
