Christian persecution rising as Islamic terror hides behind political correctness
Bottom Line: I’d promised a follow-up to my recent stories of religious persecution, of specifically Christians, so here it is... As I cited in the immediate aftermath of the Easter Sri Lanka terror attacks – as broad and horrific as those attacks were – Christians being targeted for persecution isn’t abnormal in the least. It’s simply not often reported. Just as the threat of Islamic terror is chronically under reported. The terror attacks in Columbo weren’t even the only ones that occurred Sunday (it was certainty the largest) – there were two others, you just never heard it reported. To put Islamic terror in perspective here’s what’s happened world-wide just within the past 30 days:
- 20 countries
- 90 attacks
- 717 killed
- 1306 injured
As horrific as the Easter attacks were in Sri Lanka – they don’t even account for half of the dead and injured in terror attacks within the previous month. Where’s the reporting? Where’s the outrage? When will people call out Islamists who practice Sharia and believe in this evil? I don’t understand why it’s politically correct to protect a religious sect that calls for the stoning of women who are raped, homosexuals because they’re homosexual and applauds/aids terror around the world.
I will never back down to political correctness, so let me be crystal clear. Islam when practiced under Sharia law is evil. Period. And yes, there are more Muslims that pay homage to Sharia Law than we’d like to admit. Consider that in 2011 the Pew Research Center studied Muslims in 39 countries. On the question of whether suicide bombings or other like attacks on civilians can be justified – at least 8% of Muslim populations in every country studied leave open the possibility for justification. In the United States 14% of Muslims held that view, in fact 7% of American Muslims said they outright can be justified. But we’re not supposed to have this conversation, right? It’s not politically correct. And that’s the problem. A horrible attack on mosques targeting Muslims happens in New Zealand and the entire world is made aware of the evil carried out against them. Horrible attacks are carried out near daily by Islamists against Christians and it apparently only makes the news if it’s of the scale of what happened in Sri Lanka on Easter.
