Mark Arabo told CNN’s Jonathan Mann, on the Christian genocide in Iraq; “Children are being beheaded, mothers are being raped and killed, and fathers are being hung.”
Other eyewitness reports from the region:
“Christian churches are occupied; their crosses were taken down and then destroyed, with out-of-control ISIS thugs burning as many as 1,500 ancient Christian manuscripts..”
“.. one woman had her finger hacked off after she could not remove her wedding ring fast enough. A caretaker of a parish church said his youngest son, aged five, was hacked in half as he watched..”
“They are killing every Christian they see..”
“They’ve marked Christian homes and businesses like the Nazis marked Jewish homes..”
“A Christian holocaust is in our midst..”
And what does President Obama do from the golf course? Nothing. Talk of air strikes is only talk. Our President is actively ignoring the mass slaughter of Christians – despite claiming to be one himself.
Patriot and hero, Allen West printed an agonizing, heart-felt letter from a personal friend of the Colonel’s – Rebecca Simon – which we wanted to pass along to you.
Hat tip: My man in Miami – Younis Zubchevich
Ms. Simon is a patriotic American of Assyrian Christian descent, who fears is that she could be watching the systematic elimination of an ancient people – not unlike what happened in Cambodia’s ‘Killing Fields’ under Pol Pot. Here’s her letter:
The heart-rending fate of Assyrian Christians in Iraq haunts every corner of my being. I well up over the image of the fright in the circle of the tearful eye of a child next to the lifeless body of his mother. But the silent photos capturing a millisecond in the timeline of a genocide, don’t do justice to the horror of the calamity. The stories behind the still pictures must be even more horrific.
Yes, I admit. I am guilt-ridden.
I could have been one of those misfortunate Assyrian sisters in Iraq but by the grace of God, I was destined to be an American. I have witnessed my country’s history of unparalleled compassion towards the ill, the fallen, and the persecuted. Sadly, that history is not being played out on Assyrians. This isn’t because Americans have grown callous of worldly sufferings. No, not at all. The DNA of the magnanimous American is still intact. Rather, it is our new age government and the wicked villain in the White House that have misplaced the age-old American altruism.
To the wicked villain, a child in pain is the one whose Honduran parent paid thousands of dollars to have him adopted by America. A child in pain is the one who uses his tattooed and pierced body as a weapon in a street “knockout game.” A child in pain is one hoodied if-I-had-a-son trouble-maker capable of breaking a grown man’s nose bone.
The Assyrian Christian kids are not even worthy of being honored by Michelle O’s hash tag graphics. No doubt the kidnapping of 200 kids by Boko Haram being forced to convert to Islam was a tragedy. But equally tragic if not more so, is the forceful conversion to Islam of at least 200,000 Assyrians.
And where is the outrage by the Spanish bleeding hearts: Mr. & Mrs. Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz? In their delicate artistic mind, does a Palestinian child have more rights to life than an Assyrian child? One needs to read to these Spanish-Hollywood couple the bloody history of multi-centuried conquest of Spain by Muslims and the forceful conversion to Islam of the Christian Spaniards.
And where are the moderate Muslims in all this? An anti-ISIS demonstration and a fundraiser benefit by many of the alleged moderate Muslims who’ve done pretty well in the West will go a long way in legitimizing their “moderate” claims. They cry foul only when Islam is under attack but when Christianity is under assault, they see no evil, hear no evil. Maybe they like the evil, I’m beginning to think.
And where are the petro dollars of Saudis and the Kuwaitis who express their fear of ISIS? A few gold bath tubs and sinks in their villas could buy water for some thirsty Sinjar Mountain hikers in northern Iraq. But charity isn’t in the cultural make-up of the Muslims, especially if it is to be given to a persecuted infidel.
On the other hand, the world seems to be conflict-fatigued dealing with other people’s problems especially if it means some military involvement. They probably think: Been there. Done that.
In the meantime, one of the oldest races of people, the Assyrians, the recipients of the 21st Century’s first genocide award are dying a slow death on our big screen TV’s. So far, they’re just a news story till we find something newer to cover because advertisers know fresh stories are what keep the consumers’ attention and prevent them from switching the channel. By the time, the media and the administration buries the story of the Assyrian genocide, Assyrians will be buried too, by the tens of thousands — likely without a funeral.
But for now, Assyrians have an ISIS-style freedom–the liberty to choose their death arrangement: beheading or starvation. Yes, ironically, the freedom they didn’t have in life, they get in death.
Wonder if Michelle O and her spouse will discuss over the dinner table “this Assyrian choice” in their upcoming 16-day vacation. Perhaps they’ll rest at night knowing the media will portray some other entity as the villains of Iraq. The media plays the political god for these Godless people.
I hope this saga will be written by Godly historians and the Assyrian blood will stain the pages wherever B Hussein O’s name is printed. That may be the ultimate choice for the Assyrian martyrs…
This must be stopped and Barack Obama won’t.
It’s time to call it like it is: President Obama is not a Christian. You can stick a branch in your eye and it doesn’t make you a tree.
He’s a radical Islamic sympathizer and is enabling the genocide as we speak.
You know it’s true – even if ABC, NBC or the rest of the anti-Christians won’t say anything.
