In his latest speech shamelessly pandering to the Muslim world, President Obama stated—and how many times have we heard this?—“We are not and never will be at war with Islam.”
Only problem is, Islamist are totally at war against Christianity.
(We already know that Islamists are not just at war with Judaism, but positively and proudly genocidal when it comes to Jews.)
As Obama once again regurgitated his tedious platitudes about Islam, Islamists, once again, viciously attacked a Christian neigborhood in Iraq:
Baghdad’s Christians came under attack again Wednesday when a co-ordinated series of roadside bombs blew up in predominantly Christian neighbourhoods, killing five people. The blasts came less than two weeks after insurgents besieged a church and killed 56 Christians in an assault that drew international condemnation.

Barry Rubin, a fine and knowledgeable Mideast analyst, wonders why Christians are silent in the face of world-wide Islamist persecution of Christians.
Christians in Iraq have been, and not for the first time, deliberately targeted in a major terrorist attack. Indeed, from Indonesia to Pakistan to Iraq, from the Gaza Strip to Egypt to Sudan to Nigeria, Christians are being assaulted, intimidated, and murdered by militant Muslims.
Yet virtually never do Christians in any of these countries-perhaps with some occasional exceptions in India—attack Muslims. In the West, there have been no armed terrorist attacks on Muslims or the deliberate killing of Muslims. There does not exist a single group advocating such behavior.
Have you seen any of this in the Western mass media? Have any Christian church groups—some of which find ample time to criticize Israel—even mentioned this systematic assault? Indeed, on the rare occasions that the emigration of Christians is mentioned, somehow it is blamed on Israel, as one American network news show did recently.

Daniel Greenfield reminds us that Indonesia has been persecuting and butchering Christians in East Timor for a good many years.
But East Timor isn’t the end of it. The same Indonesian military is still in business.
The Kopassus special forces, Indonesia’s answer to the German SS, are still out and about. In 1998, Kopassus thugs gang raped hundreds of Chinese women in Jakarta. Some were burnt alive. The victims were as young as 10 years old and some were thrown into burning buildings afterward. The attackers proclaimed to their victims, “You must be raped because you are Chinese and non-Muslim.
But this barbarism doesn’t bother Obama. No, he’s fixated on Jews building apartments in Jerusalem on Jewish-owned land.
And a Happy 235 Birthday to the U.S. Marines, founded in 1775.
