It is CRUCIAL to never forget who created ISIS in the first place and for what purpose. If Muslims have always gone around beheading Christians why are we hearing about this now? The truth is that it has never happened before! Sure there were extremist sects, but very local. Didn’t the Bible warn us it would get to this? Is it really the Muslims? Or is it a much bigger evil that is behind this chaos and confusion all over the world and whose objective is to destroy Christianity? Are we just facing beheadings, or is Christianity being attacked on all fronts? Is the media in the US also Muslim? Is Hollywood Muslim? Is the pharma industry Muslim? What about the international banks? Think about it!

“It is imperative that we continue to pressure the U.N. and the international community in order to provide the relief these victims so desperately need,” the ACLJ urged, calling on people to join the cause as the legal group expands its “largest global legal advocacy campaign in defense of Christians facing jihadist genocide.”
“In Syria, the Islamic State has beheaded and stoned men, women, and children for blasphemy, heresy, and apostasy. One Christian Syrian woman described ‘Christians being killed and tortured, and … children being beheaded in front of their parents,’” the law group has said.
It added that Assyrian Christians have faced mass kidnappings; children and adults have been tortured for refusing to deny their faith in Christ, and other Christian children have been raped and burned to death by the radicals.
An investigative report by Christian groups Open Doors and Served and Middle East Concern has warned that at least 50 percent, but possibly as much as 80 percent, of Christians in Syria and Iraq have fled the region since 2011.
“Factors for leaving included the violence of conflict, including the almost complete destruction of some historically Christian towns in the Nineveh plains of northern Iraq, the emigration of others and loss of community, the rate of inflation and loss of employment opportunities, and the lack of educational opportunities,” the alarming report stated.
“While direct violence, such as the movements of ISIS in both Iraq and Syria, was the tipping point for displacement, the ultimate decision to leave the countries was portrayed as an accumulation of factors over time.”
The genocide of Christians in Syria and Iraq has long been recognized at the world level. Not only Austria, but also other countries of the world, especially Christian states, should recognize the consequences of impunity of ISIS.
To be recalled is that as a presidential candidate, Donald Trump stated more than once that the U.S. had left Christians who had been strongly persecuted and even subjected to genocide. He also noticed that the U.S. had done nothing to help them and should always be ashamed of this.
He is right that the country should be ashamed for the lack of the real action. This problem fell upon to Trump’s administration from the past leaders of the country, and now it is the very time to resolve it. Following the example of Austria Trump must correct the situation faced by Christian communities due to inaction by the United States.
