Now this is the America the world knows and loves.
Pastor Bill Devlin of Infinity Bible Church from the Bronx had been watching the horrors of ISIS unfold for years. He wanted to help the Christian militias fighting against ISIS, so he reached out to the Nineveh Plains Protection Unit and asked them what they needed. They told him “weapons.” So to their surprise, Pastor Devlin kept true to his word and purchased them $4,000 of machine guns, AK-47s, and RPGs to aid their fight against ISIS:
William Devlin, a pastor at Infinity Bible Church in the Bronx who often travels the world to help Christians and others persecuted in the most dangerous places on Earth, has supplied the Nineveh Plain Protection Units with an assortment of rocket-propelled grenade launchers, grenades and AK-47 assault rifles to help level the playing field in the militia’s fight against IS (also known as ISIS or ISIL).
Devlin told The Christian Post from Kurdistan last week that he visited with NPU Gen. Behnam Aboosh at his base in Alqosh back in April. When Devlin asked the general how he could help the militia, the general simply told him that the NPU desperately needed weapons.
“He said, ‘Pastor Devlin, you and a hundred other people have asked me that same question — U.S. Army generals, people from The Wall Street Journal, New York Times,” Devlin recalled Aboosh telling him. “‘They have all asked — 100 people sitting in that same chair.'”
“He said, ‘Look, I am dealing with a major military force that has United States weapons that they got from the Iraqi Army. ISIS has all these heavy weapons, all these armored vehicles, and I am sitting here in the Nineveh Protection Unit with the equivalent of bows and arrows,'” Devlin continued.
Although the militia has received help in the form of training from United States military personnel, Devlin said the group hasn’t received any weapons from the U.S. government.
“He said, ‘I need weapons,'” Devlin added. “And I looked at him and I said, ‘General, the Holy Spirit just spoke through you. I do not want to be number 101. So, can I buy you some weapons?'”
Devlin said Aboosh was taken off guard by his immediate willingness to buy weapons. However, the general went ahead and made a call to an Assyrian Christian arms dealer. The very next day, the weapons were delivered. (source)
Pastor Devlin did the right thing, but as the article points out, the US Government is very unhappy with what he has done, and the State Department is scheduled to have a “meeting” with him this week.

While America’s government has been taken over by a sick cabal of power-hungry monsters who care only for their own pocketbooks and those of their friends, never forget there are a lot of good Americans out there who, like Pastor Devlin, will put their money where their mouth is and do what they must to fight the good fight. That is the America that the world loves and needs.
