A Christian holocaust has been taking place on Barack Obama’s watch all across the Middle East since the Arab Spring began in 2011. Not only has he largely ignored it publicly but he has facilitated it covertly. There has been far more outrage directed at Israel over its alleged treatment of Palestinians, which is actually a blood libel of Israel perpetrated by Hamas.
Obama didn’t always ignore the persecution of Christians in the Middle East. In 2007, then Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) expressed concern for the persecuted Christians of Iraq in a letter to then Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
Just two weeks earlier, even the left-wing Washington Post called attention to the matter. Now that Christian persecution in the Middle East is exponentially worse, it’s all but ignored by mainstream media outlets who remain sympathetic to a President on whose watch that persecution is taking place.
We can now conclude that Obama’s letter was nothing short of a political weapon used against a Republican administration which admittedly created some problems of its own in Iraq relative to persecuted Christians. Obama’s first presidential campaign was spent promising to “end the war in Iraq”. His 2012 campaign was spent boasting about having done it. A consequence has been far more Christian persecution, not less.
The worst part is Obama has gone out of his way to ignore mentioning that persecution. In fact, the recent interest in victims of ISIS persecution in Iraq came about when it was learned that tens of thousands of non-Christian Yazidi’s were stranded on a mountain and a Yazidi member of Iraq’s Parliament broke down, as Shoebat.com relayed.
Patrick Goodenough explains that Christian persecution in Iraq got much worse on Obama’s watch before he pulled U.S. troops completely out of that country in late 2011:
On the Open Doors USA’s annual watch list of the world’s worst persecutors of Christians, Iraq did not make the top ten between 2003 and 2010, instead taking positions in the low 20s or high teens.
In 2011 (covering events of the previous year) Iraq entered the watch list’s top ten, making eighth place. In 2012 it was ninth, but by 2013 Iraq had climbed to fourth place, the same positions in holds in 2014.
As Obama was completing his pull out of U.S. troops from Iraq before Christmas of 2011, he did so as the Arab Spring portended things would get much worse in that country; they have. Ironically coinciding with ending the war was Obama’s welcoming a hardened terrorist who was a member of the Iraqi government named Hadi al-Ameri into the Oval Office. Al-Ameri was implicated in the Khobar towers attack that killed 19 U.S. servicemen.
Obama’s actions have demonstrated more care for empowering brutal Muslim Brotherhood regimes in the Middle East than in helping their Christian victims. To this day, the Obama administration has sided with the Mursi regime ousted from Egypt last year despite the indigenous Coptic Christians suffering mightily at its hands.
In Syria, to Iraq’s north and west, Obama has aided the opposition there, which has committed unspeakable atrocities against Christians to include human slaughterhouses, reported by Shoebat.com. Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has been championed by a Christian population that insists he’s protecting them from persecution (people generally don’t lie about who is responsible for slaughtering them).
Despite this, the Obama administration has sided with the rebels, providing them with untold amounts of weaponry.
It speaks volumes when a U.S. Senator uses the slaughter of Christians for his own political purposes and then not only turns his back on them when he becomes President but sides with their persecutors.
After you read Obama’s letter to Condoleezza Rice, watch this:
Incidentally, in 2008, Rice was asked who she would vote for in the presidential election. Have a look at how she responded:
