Refusal to defend Christians has led to more Islamic terrorism against them

Ralph Peters:
When two fanatics pledged to ISIS slit the throat of 85-year-old Father Jacques Hamel at mass on Tuesday morning, we steadied the knife. Our tolerance for Islam’s intolerance is the greatest weapon these blood-cult terrorists have.

How, exactly, did we help kill that priest?

We ignored the Islamist slaughter of Christians elsewhere. When Coptic Christians were murdered in Egypt, we dismissed it as an internal matter. When Christians were butchered in Nigeria and elsewhere in Africa, we merely shrugged.

Ordered to ignore the plight of Iraqi Christians to “avoid perceptions of bias,” our troops watched as Christians were slaughtered or driven out. The 2,000-year-old Christian civilization of Mesopotamia has been reduced to bones.

With Syria ravaged, President Obama refused to acknowledge the torture, rape, kidnapping, enslavement and mass murder of Christians at the hands of Islamist fanatics (and not just ISIS). When alarmed voices raised the prospect of giving priority to Christian refugees, the administration cried, “Bigotry!” — and gave priority to Muslim migrants.

When Israelis were killed by Muslims for being Jewish, we blamed “Israeli policy.” Outside of Israel, the 3,000-year-old Jewish civilization of the Middle East has been annihilated. Our Leftists want to finish the job.

As the terrorists grew ever bolder and more zealous, we claimed they had nothing at all to do with Islam. We explained attacks as workplace violence, the result of mental illness, or the acts of “lone wolves”…anything but jihad.
...
There is much more.

The West is so afraid of turning the war being waged against us into a "Holy War" that it has invited more slaughter.  The current policy is an abject failure, and the administration needs to work with Muslim allies to fix it.  There is substantial evidence that the number of Muslim victims is probably higher in this Muslim civil war, but that is no excuse for ignoring the genocide against Christians.
