While Christians were getting purged from Iraq Christian George W. Bush made no effort to help them. In fact, his invasion of Iraq was what sealed their fate. Now it is Obama's turn to line up with the majority Muslim group and let it purge Christians. Where will Syria's 2 million Christians go?
As in Iraq, Syria’s two-million-strong Christian community, the largest next to Egypt’s Copts in the entire region, is being devastated. Targeted by jihadist militias, they are steadily fleeing Syria, and whether they will be able to return to their ancient homeland is doubtful.
The Coptic Christians in Iraq, the Syrian Christians, and the Iraqi Christians need their own country. In a previous era Western powers would have taken their side. Now Western powers take the side of democratic theocracy of Islamists. This is done in the name of freedom. But of course democracy in the Middle East unleashes the forces of Muslim religious oppression.
