Christians being murdered by ISIS
by Sean Gibbons
Franklin Graham, the chief of both Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, is raising an important question: why is the world silent while ISIS carries out genocide against Christians?
“It is genocide,” he wrote on Monday in a post on Facebook.” And the world seems largely silent about it.”
While much of the media world is anxious to discuss maltreatment of Muslims at the hands of Christian powers, there has been an orchestrated attempt to murder each and every Christian in the Middle East region. Still, despite all evidence, President Obama has refused to call this an issue of religion.
“And recent reports share the horror of 12 other Christians being murdered on August 28. Why were they killed? For refusing to renounce their faith in Jesus Christ. Eyewitnesses said that ISIS militants crucified a 12-year-old Christian boy and his Syrian missionary father along with two other men after mercilessly brutalizing them. They cut off the boy’s fingertips to try to get his father to convert to Islam. They left their bodies hanging on the crosses for two days under signs reading ‘infidels,’ said Mr. Graham during a recent visit to Fox News.
Such lack of regard for the crisis has raised questions regarding the intentions of Barack Obama. While the president identifies as a Christian, his lack of support for his own people has revived the debate over the truthfulness of his claim. As WND first reported, public records in Indonesia listed Obama as a Muslim during his early years, and a number of childhood friends claimed to the media Obama was once a mosque-attending Muslim.
While such claims of Obama’s religion of birth will probably always be shrouded in mystery – intentionally or unintentionally – his lack of support for the Christian people can’t be denied.
Reports indicate that Russia has done more to damage ISIS in a few days than the Obama administration has done in the last 12 months. You can’t call that an accident.
