In February I wrote about how American black Christians seem to be blind to the global atrocities committed by the radical Islamic terrorists known as ISIS, Boko Haram and Al Qaeda. Since then, the bodies of Christians in Libya and North Africa have been piling up.
Just this weekend, ISIS beheaded and shot more than 30 Ethiopian Christians and made a video showing the world how vicious they were. Many across the globe have registered their distaste at the horror, but I’ve yet to hear even one liberal American black Christian voice concern.
So I ask myself why? Don’t they watch the same news? Maybe not. CNN or MSNBC may not give as much credence to the massacre of North African Christians as they give to the murder of blacks by so-called “racist” cops.
What happens when they hear that there are home-made terrorists right next door? There are American Muslims enamored with ISIS and are ready to eliminate Christians wherever they are.
What happens when black Christians wake up and there are radical Muslims ready to have them submit to Islam or pay a fine or die? Listen to the leader of the ISIS death squad as he prepares to commit their latest episode of genocide. (CNN)
“All praise be to Allah, the Lord and cherisher of the world and may peace and blessings be upon the Prophet Mohammed. To the nation of the cross, we are back again on the sands, where the companions of the Prophet, peace be upon him, have stepped on before, telling you: Muslim blood that was shed under the hands of your religion is not cheap.”
“In fact, their blood is the purest blood because there is a nation behind them (which) inherits revenge. And we swear to Allah: the one who disgraced you by our hands, you will not have safety, even in your dreams, until you embrace Islam.”
“You pay (tax) with willing submission, feeling yourselves subdued. Our battle is a battle between faith and blasphemy, between truth and falsehood, until there is no more polytheism — and obedience becomes Allah’s on its entirety.”
“The Islamic state has offered the Christian community this many times and set a deadline for this, but the Christians never cooperated.”
What happens when the preachers find out they live in the same neighborhood as radical terrorists? What happens when the same Muslim leaders that their beloved POTUS met with just before he chastised Christian leaders at the 2015 Prayer Breakfast, succeed in transforming America into an Islamic State?
You see, the above statement uttered by the murderous Islamic terrorist leader before ordering the deaths of over 30 Ethiopian Christians is the same sentiment that American Muslims feel. Just ask them.
When I ask what they think about the radical Islamic terrorists murdering Christians across the globe, they respond that it is no difference than what Christians did during the Crusades. Funny thing, though, Christians never did what ISIS is doing now. And if the Muslims who think ISIS is so slick would do their homework, they would know that.
At any rate, as long as black American Christians would understand what is going on now across our globe and how it negatively affects Americans, they would be very vigilant about the elimination of global Christianity.
And maybe the black media might even begin to cover something other than what Obama did today.
The Daily Beast, a radical leftist media outlet, features former lawyer turned writer and comedian Dean Obeidallah, whose latest piece makes fun of Indiana Republican Governor Mike Pence and “his merry band of liberty-loving Republicans in the state legislature” for passing the “religious liberty” law.
American-born of Palestinian-Italian descent, Obeidallah writes that the law, which was originally meant to protect Christians from having to go against their beliefs when dealing with the LGBT community, actually gives Muslims the right to bring Sharia to Indiana.
Sharia is Islamic law by which all Muslims are governed. It is their moral code. It allows for what our democracy considers the violation of human rights, including stoning women to death for adultery or murdering homosexuals or beheading Christians who refuse to submit to Islam.
But Obeidallah thinks if our American religious laws protect Christians, they will also protect Muslims who adhere to their own moral code.
Black American Christians need to wake up and hear the Islamic call to prayer at 5:00 in the morning. It’s coming – if we aren’t careful. Just read “America 2064” by Wayne Rawlins.
When that happens, it’ll be too late to wish you should have listened to us Black Republicans.
