Over the weekend I posted a statement about the latest actions of the Islamic terror group ISIS, now known as the Islamic State (IS). The group has resorted to the time-honored tradition of jihadists to force conversion, subjugation by collecting a the “jizya” tax, or death.
That, my friends, is the Islamist version of “coexist.” Therefore, Iraqi Christians, Assyrians and Chaldeans, who have lived in those lands centuries before the emergence of Islam and Mohammed, are now being forced to flee for their lives. Their homes and possessions are being taken by these Islamic jihadists — those wonderful emissaries of the “religion of peace.”
As confirmed by ijreview.com, “The Iraqi city of Mosul that was quickly taken by ISIS terrorists is now free of Christians for the first time in history, after they were given a warning to either convert, pay the al-Jizya tax that non-Muslims pay to live under their rule, or “face the sword.”
A similar report comes from the Islamist-friendly Al Arabiya:
“Christians were fleeing Iraq’s jihadist-held city of Mosul en masse Friday after mosques relayed an ultimatum giving them a few hours to leave, the country’s Chaldean patriarch and witnesses said. “Christian families are on their way to Dohuk and Arbil,” in the neighboring autonomous region of Kurdistan, Patriarch Louis Sako told AFP. “For the first time in the history of Iraq, Mosul is now empty of Christians.”
“We were shocked by the distribution of a statement by the Islamic State calling on Christians to convert to Islam, or to pay unspecified tribute, or to leave their city and their homes taking only their clothes and no luggage, and that their homes would then belong to the Islamic State,” Sako said.”So, I must ask, where are the statements of condemnation from CAIR, ISNA, MPAC, MAS, and the other U.S.-based Muslim Brotherhood front organizations? I think you all know the answer. Heck, where is the condemnation from President Barack Hussein Obama? You can bet that if the situation were reversed, the entire world would be screaming and condemning Christians — but hey, these are Muslims, they’re free to do as they wish. Just look at the condemnation of Israel, a sovereign state, being attacked by an Islamic terror group, Hamas. Whose side is conducting protests in Paris, London, and in front of the White House?
Oh, I know, I’m the “islamophobe” because I refuse to just sit back and take it. I’m a warmonger because I believe one must fight for survival, especially against an enemy sworn to your destruction. Say what you will, but I will not be called an apologist and certainly not a dhimmi.We saw this before in the 20th Century when Jews were driven from their homes, given notices, and labelled — the same is happening now in Iraq. Those who say they don’t care and that it’s not our problem represent that which is the worse amongst us. You can see here pictures and Twitter posts evidencing the targeted labeling of homes. Churches are being destroyed. And this is not just happening in Iraq as Boko Haram continues to murder Christians in Nigeria.
Where is our media on this? Where is the outrage? Silence is consent.
To my Christians brothers and sisters I apologize. I apologize that we have a progressive, socialist, and Islamist sympathizer as a president, leader of a party that is godless and has enacted a war on Christianity all in the name of secular humanism. I apologize that the efforts of my fellow warrior brother and sisters who served and fought in Iraq now appear to have been for naught, at the expense of our freedom, security and safety. I apologize that these historic enclaves, nearly 2000 years old, are being erased from the face of the earth by these Islamic jihadists.
From my humble home in South Florida I lift you up in prayer before our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. But know you may find strength in the words of Romans Chapter 8, verses 28-39 — especially, verses 36-39, ” As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future,nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
God be with you all!
