Largely ignored by mainstream media and western politicians is the relentless persecution and slaughter of Christians in the Middle East.
There won’t be any reprisals, no cruise missiles, no outrage in the UN.
This carnage, brought to us by the religion of peace, will continue so long as the root cause is ignored. While the West continues to deny the truth about Islam and the directives within the Koran demanding bloody Jihad, there is no hope of stopping this. The doctrine of Islam is fundamentally violent — period. We can expect no reform as the core text requires the kuffar to submit or be slain.
And the Pope will continue to exhort us that Islam is peace.
At least 43 people were killed in bomb attacks on two Egyptian Coptic churches on Palm Sunday that included the seat of the Coptic Pope, the latest assault on a religious minority increasingly targeted by devout Muslims.
Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attacks, which also injured more than 100 people and occurred a week before Coptic Easter, with Pope Francis scheduled to visit Egypt later this month.
