RAQ ARCHBISHOP WONDERS WHERE PROTESTERS WERE WHEN CHRISTIANS WERE DYING
February 3, 2017
Muslim lives matter. Non-Muslim lives don't matter. That's how Islam and the left both see it.
Catholic Archbishop Bashar Warda of Irbil tells Crux that Iraqi refugees see it a lot differently than we do — and wonder where the protesters were in 2014:
Everyone, including the administration, seems to agree that this should have been implemented with more clarity. There was much confusion about what the order meant and many people were very upset.
From my perspective in Iraq, I wonder why all of these protesters were not protesting in the streets when ISIS came to kill Christians and Yazidis and other minority groups. They were not protesting when the tens of thousands of displaced Christians my archdiocese has cared for since 2014 received no financial assistance from the U.S. government or the U.N. There were no protests when Syrian Christians were only let in at a rate that was 20 times less than the percentage of their population in Syria.
I do not understand why some Americans are now upset that the many minority communities that faced a horrible genocide will finally get a degree of priority in some manner.
The average lefty is convinced that...
1. Christians are evil oppressors
2. Muslims are poor persecuted victims
That's why it was alright for Obama to impose a de facto Christian ban on refugees from Syria so that 99% of those allowed in were Muslims. Christians being killed was not a problem.
