Giulio Meotti : Putin’s Russia claims the role of defender of Christians under Islam

“For a long time, we’ve been saying that Christians in the Middle East needed a protector,” the Canadian philosopher Mathieu Bock-Côté wrote in Le Figaro. “This has never been truer. But who is willing to play that role? France was, for many years. Over the past few years, Putin’s Russia has claimed that role, as if it was being called to take over as Europe renounces its Christian origins.”

Giulio Meotti: Islamic supremacists see that the West has no stomach for them

When Ayman al Zawahiri or Abu Bakr al Baghdadi call their faithful to establish a Caliphate and to conquer Europe, Western commentators and politicians dismiss them as “mad,” or as Barack Obama called them, a “JV Team.” But what is the picture of the West that these Islamic supremacists get from CNN, BBC and European newspapers? Birth rates are falling as has never happened before in human history, Europe’s military spending goes to pay army pensions, Christian churches are closing or are being converted into mosques, journalists are self-censoring themselves about Islam (nobody would reprint the Mohammed cartoons after the massacre at Charlie Hebdo), Muslim veils are proliferating everywhere in Europe’s streets, honor killings go totally unpunished, feminists talk about “gender” instead of sharia, Muslim reformers are silenced through intimidation, and our television networks hide the images of jihadist crimes to avoid offending Muslims or so as to not scare the public.
