“You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet.” — Matthew 5:13
By Raymond Ibrahim
As far as human beings go, we’re not so very much unlike those who came before us and are probably not much unlike those who will come after us. But, the fact that large-scale crimes against humanity are ignored, even when public news of such horrors abounds, remains a stain on the soul of the species, especially in the aftermath of the Holocaust, the Armenian Genocide, Rwanda, etc., etc.
It is the week following the Christian celebration of the resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth, and the world has so far, tragically … inexcusably … unthinkably … done to Christians what it did to the Jewish people last century: ignored them as they were slaughtered … men, women, children, grandparents, grandchildren … in mass numbers over an inexcusably long period of time.
You would think we’d have learned our lesson. But, according to Raymond Ibrahim, writing for the Gatestone Institute on March 17, the Obama Administration’s original rejection of the term “genocide” was changed to include Christians only after the House of Representatives voted 393 to 0 on a resolution that does describe Christians as victims of genocide. And yet, still there is no initiative to “fast track” Christians for immigration as they are publicly targeted for destruction.
