Words just aren’t going to cut it anymore. If the Obama administration doesn’t get off its “high horse” and actually do something to stop the scourge of ISIS, it’s just hard to believe he isn’t either petrified or sympathetic.From Fox News:
The Islamic State expanded its extermination of Christians to another country with the release of a video Sunday purportedly showing a mass execution of Ethiopians in Libya.
In the video, Islamic State militants in Libya shot and beheaded groups of captive Ethiopian Christians.
The video starts with what it called a history of Christian-Muslim relations, followed by scenes of militants destroying churches, graves and icons. A masked fighter brandishing a pistol delivers a long statement, saying Christians must convert to Islam or pay a special tax prescribed by the Koran.It shows one group of captives, identified as Ethiopian Christians, purportedly held by an Islamic State affiliate in eastern Libya known as Barqa Province. It also shows another purportedly held by an affiliate in the southern Libyan calling itself the Fazzan Province. The video then switches between footage of the captives in the south being shot dead and the captives in the east being beheaded on a beach
Here are some segments of the grisly video.
Fox reports that the White House “condemned the video.”
Ooh, ouch that’s gonna leave a mark.Actually, the White House statement says “that these terrorists killed these men solely because of their faith lays bare the terrorists’ senseless brutality.”
Oh, yes, that’s WAY better. Because if we didn’t have these videos, we’d have no idea how senselessly brutal these terrorists are. (Like there was any doubt before.)
Soo….anything we’re going to do about it? No comment there about how we’re going to stop this senseless brutality from spreading across the globe.
Oh, on that note, Fox mentions that the “lead presenter” in the video speaks English with a North American accent. And in case you missed it, yesterday the FBI arrested six young men in San Diego and Minneapolis who were apparently planning to travel to Syria to join ISIS. To lay bare more senseless brutality, no doubt.
And by the way, the emissaries of the Religion of Peace in the video explained what they were doing is prescribed in the Koran.
Banning veils, banning children in mosques, banning travel to Mecca for anyone under 35 – those sound like pretty “Islamophobic” things to me, until you hear they’re coming from the country of Tajikstan, with a 97 percent Muslim population. The president there recognizes his nation has a problem with militant Islam and is doing something about it – Col. West wrote about it here today.
How many more Christians must be slaughtered before Western nations stand up and say no more? Last week, Israel observed Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day. The world stood by for too long while Jews were marched into camps and annihilated.
The seeds of that horrific germ are spawning again, as ISIS slaughters Christians. But we just stand around condemning videos.
