The Catholic Archbishop of Erbil has denounced the hypocrisy of those protesting President Trumps recent executive order on immigration, wondering aloud where all of the demonstrators were when Islamic State fighters were slaughtering Christians and other minorities in the Middle East.
In an interview with the online journal Crux, Archbishop Bashar Warda said that from his perspective in Iraq, he couldnt help but ask why all of these protesters were not protesting in the streets when ISIS came to kill Christians and Yazidis and other minority groups.
Warda also criticized the policies of the Obama administration, which offered no financial assistance to displaced Christians in Islamic State territory and instead favored Syrian Muslims when it came to accepting refugees into the United States.
They were not protesting when the tens of thousands of displaced Christians my archdiocese has cared for since 2014 received no financial assistance from the U.S. government or the U.N., he said. There were no protests when Syrian Christians were only let in at a rate that was 20 times less than the percentage of their population in Syria.
I do not understand why some Americans are now upset that the many minority communities that faced a horrible genocide will finally get a degree of priority in some manner, Warda added.

No money no problem.
The lefty “protestors” hate Christians.
Does he really not know that?
The protesters were sending money to ISIS so they could kill Christians
“Warda also criticized the policies of the Obama administration, which offered no financial assistance to displaced Christians in Islamic State territory and instead favored Syrian Muslims when it came to accepting refugees into the United States. “
Where was the MSM during that time ?????
where were they?
why... they were protesting our troops trying to stop the slaughter of those Christians!
It was very clear genocide against Christians was happening.
- Obama looked the other way.
- the media looked the other way
- liberals looked the other way
- the UN looked the other way
- UN ambassador Samantha Power looked the other way
Blood is on their hands.
From what I have read, 1.3 million Christians have been martyred in the Middle East over just a little more than 10 years.
Because muslims vote democrat...
Democrats are pro-ISIS now.
Where are all of the “Stop Jihad Now!” signs in the front yards of lefties?
Democrats cheered ISIS when they killed those “Evil Christians”. Seriously. Democrats cheered Obama and his actions in Iraq and Syria, which were the act of killing Christians
