If you want to understand how it is that a Christian population that once made up a large minority of the population in the Middle East and North Africa now numbers only in the tens and hundreds, then look to Egypt and listen for the Western media.
Over the weekend, dozens of Christians were slaughtered when ISIS bombed several Coptic Egyptian churches, yet the Western media has remained silent.
The silence from the media is an absolutely disgusting sin, and even some liberals can recognize the crime of it. Piers Morgan appeared on Fox News Monday night and denounced the mainstream media for their abhorrent decision to ignore what is happening to Christians (and other religious minorities) in theMuslim World.
“I think unfortunately if it happens in the Middle East this kind of atrocity, it just does not seem to attract the kind of media attention in America that it would if it happened, as we’ve seen in the attacks in Sweden, the last few days, in London, two weeks ago, I was there for that. Huge attention in the American media. You know, in Paris, in Nice, these get huge attention. And yet what happened in Egypt was unbelievably significant. You know if you look at what ISIS really stands for, what they are carrying out in the Middle East, and in Egypt in particular, is a kind of genocidal attack on Christians and Christianity. They want Christianity eradicated, and they want to convert all Muslims to their crusade, they want it to be a Holy War, and they want Christians gone. And I don’t think that narrative is getting the attention it should get in the American media, and I have to say in other media around the world.
Host Tucker Carlson agreed wholeheartedly but wondered if Morgan could explain why it seemed that people in the West are so worried to talk about the murder of Christians in the Muslim world?
“Right, I mean ISIS couldn’t be more transparent. On the attack in St. Petersburg last week, they made it absolutely clear that this is a war against the cross. They said that. That is what the statement said. They are at war in their heads, with Christianity. Not just with Christianity, they are at war with all other religions as well. But they have been singling out, in increasingly virulent terms, their real war now is against Christians and the cross. Now I think this is a huge story. This is the kind of story that ought to be dominating cable news, in America. It should be dominating headlines around the world. The press in America should be full of headlines about this.”
The liberals who are willing to speak truth about the evil of Islam and the genocide of Christians in the East are few and far between. If we hope to help, we need more liberals like Morgan who are willing to speak honestly about these things.
