Obama’s Middle East Policies Are Death to Christians

By Randy Rose

Obama is so proud of the work he did in Egypt, but one Christian died as a result of Obama’s war there.  Since Obama has been President, thousands of Christians are being killed in Egypt and Iraq.  Emmanuel Ogebe, a Nigerian human rights activist, said that more Christians have been killed by Islamist Boko Haram than NATO troops in Afghanistan.
Hundreds of thousands of Christians have fled Iraq. They’ve fled into Syria, of all places. Operation Iraqi Freedom has not protected them. In fact, their lot has been made much worse since the Bush administration toppled Saddam Hussein and required a new Iraqi constitution containing a repugnancy clause. State Department advisers insisted upon this clause. It says that notwithstanding anything else in the new constitution, nothing shall be done by the Iraq government that is “repugnant” to Islam. Well, among the things repugnant to Islam is saying “Jesus is Lord.” That will get you killed. It did get a young Tunisian Christian killed. Recently, Egyptian TV showed the horror of a young convert from Islam to Christianity being beheaded. The Egyptian news anchor, to his credit, cried out: “Is this what we want here?” And he asked the anguished question, “How will these people govern?”
Video footage of a convert from Islam to Christianity being murdered by Muslims has been shown on Egyptian TV. The graphic incident, which is reported to have taken place in Tunisia, was aired on a program called Egypt Today. The footage shows a young man being held down by masked men with a knife to his throat. One man chants a number of Muslim prayers in Arabic, mostly condemning Christianity. The man holding the knife to the Christian convert’s throat begins to cut, slowly severing the head amid cries of “Allahu Akbar” (“god is great”).
Where is the outrage? I know that if a group of Chistians killed a muslim convert there would be moral outrage and the media would be reporting on it for weeks.
