Christians persecuted throughout the world …

Imagine the unspeakable fury that would erupt across the Islamic world if a Christian-led government in Khartoum had been responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Sudanese Muslims over the past 30 years. Or if Christian gunmen were firebombing mosques in Iraq during Friday prayers. Or if Muslim girls in Indonesia had been abducted and beheaded on their way to school, because of their faith.
Such horrors are barely thinkable, of course. But they have all occurred in reverse, with Christians falling victim to Islamist aggression. Only two days ago, a suicide bomber crashed a jeep laden with explosives into a packed Catholic church in Kaduna, northern Nigeria, killing at least eight people and injuring more than 100. The tragedy bore the imprint of numerous similar attacks by Boko Haram (which roughly translates as “Western education is sinful”), an exceptionally bloodthirsty militant group.
Other notable trouble spots include Egypt, where 600,000 Copts – more than the entire population of Manchester – have emigrated since the 1980s in the face of harassment or outright oppression.
Commentary by AAABTonto:
This is truly unreal … Muslims get to whine, complain, demonstrate, riot, burn down embassies and demand prosecution when someone draws a silly cartoon or makes a lousy movie about their precious prophet Muhammad, but when they decapitate or shoot a Christian school girl in the head, or blow up a church killing scores of worshipers, nothing is said. Nothing is said and nothing will be said if Obama is reelected. This is something that the whole of the world should be condemning and they won’t until there is some leadership demonstrated by the President of the United States–who is supposed to be the leader of the free world. But I guess I am asking a great deal; who would expect the President of the US to come to the defense of innocent little Christian school girls when the man will allow his own Ambassador to Libya and three of his staff to be gruesomely murdered without lifting a finger? Obama, a self-proclaimed Christian, would rather have a Ramadan feast in the White House. This is more blood on the hands of the Obama administration.
How anyone could vote for Obama again after everything that has happened under his watch leading up to the murder of Ambassador Stevens in Benghazi is beyond me—but it is your vote …
