Where are the Christians?
“ISIS Terrorists Crucifying, Burying Iraqi Children Alive”
“ISIS video appears to show beheadings of Egyptian Coptic Christians in Libya”
“ISIS Declares War On 'The Cross': 21 Christians Beheaded”
The above are just three of dozens headlines of recent vintage describing acts of savagery committed by Islamist terrorists against Christians.
If you type thereligionofpeace.com/Pages/ChristianAttacks.htm into your web browser, you will find a list of 1233 separate attacks by Islamists on Christians between September 11, 2001 and February 14, 2015, not one of which had anything to do with war, combat or insurgency. The victims in each one of these incidents were innocent Christians who were specifically targeted and abused by Islamists solely because they were Christians.
During the Holocaust, the world stood by and did nothing while the Nazis murdered six million Jews. The claim has repeatedly been made that most people didn't know what was going on. However, this has been effectively disproved by news stories from early in the war. For example, on June 12, 1942, the London Daily Telegraph featured this headline: “Germans murder 700,000 Jews in Poland” (see theguardian.com/media/greenslade/2015/jan/27/daily-telegraphs-holocaust-article-in-1942-that-went-unheralded). That story pulled no punches; it talked about “traveling gas chambers” and mass murders. Of course, it was unusual that the story was published at all. As evidence of the place it occupied in the priorities of the day, the story appeared on page five of a six-page issue. There are no excuses that will suffice for the indifference of the civilized world to what the story referred to as “the greatest massacre in the world’s history.”
