Now They're Coming for the Christians
Now They’re Coming for the Christians
Commentary by Sanford D. Horn
February 27, 2015
“First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came
for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Trade
Then they came
for the Jews, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came
for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.” – Martin Niemoller
With all the comparisons of ISIS/ISIL/the Islamic State
to the Nazis it is more than appropriate to quote the German Protestant pastor
Martin Niemoller (1892-1984), who as an openly anti-Hitler individual, “spent
the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps.” (www.ushmm.org)
This quote can be seen vividly on a wall in the United States Holocaust Memorial
Museum, a museum of which I am proud to be a charter member.
Western Civilization burns and Barack Obama fiddles a la
Nero, unwilling to call the enemy what they are, Muslim extremists and/or
radical Islam, when they themselves are praising Allah’s name while committing
their heinous acts of barbarism and butchery. Fox News analyst Col. Ralph
Peters traversed one step further in calling Obama “the reincarnation of
Pontius Pilate washing his hands, but the blood’s not coming off.”
“He does nothing,” said Peters of Obama. But Obama is not
the only one sitting idly by. Where is the Italian army? After all, the ISIS
terrorists announced they are heading toward Rome. As the ISIS bid for a global
caliphate continues to spread with little resistance it is further incumbent upon
the United States to step up. It’s a small menu – either fight ISIS over there,
or fight them here on American soil.
Where is the global outcry, and more importantly, the
physical response as the slaughter of Christians, Jews, journalists, even other
Muslims is ratcheted up by the barbaric animals killing in the name of their bastardized
version of a so-called religion of peace? More like a religion of pieces as the
beheadings of Coptic Christians, the immolations of Christians and Muslims who
refuse to cow-tow to these degenerate beasts continue on a grand scale. And let’s
not forget the butchering of the Christian children watching a soccer match
simply because they would not disavow themselves of their belief in Christ.
And even after the identification of one of the worst of
these murderous animals, this Jihadi John, a.k.a. Mohammed Emwazi, an upper middle
class, educated Kuwaiti-Brit; do State Department Deputy Spokesperson Marie
Harf and Obama still want to offer jobs to these degenerates? What about the 10
year old girl who detonated a suicide bomb in Nigeria? Does she need a job?
Perhaps an afterschool paper route. What about the rapes of nine year old girls
who are sold into sex slavery? How about the selling of organs of their victims
as another way to fund their murderous activities? Is this a religion of peace?
Recruits as young as five years old are videotaped in uniforms with firearms
bigger than they are as they are indoctrinated into a world of hate, slaughter,
and death that they couldn’t possibly understand.
Even NBC, a network that has been carrying Obama’s water
since he announced for the White House in 2007, has taken to calling ISIS “evil.”
(It’s about time.) Yet Obama remains paralyzed.
Threats have been made against some of the shopping malls
in the United States including the Mall of America in the Minneapolis area,
home of the largest Somali-American community. The war is being brought to our
front doorsteps. Additionally, thousands of people from France, Jordan, Morocco,
Russia, Saudi Arabia, and Tunisia are leaving their home countries to join
Earlier this week three residents of Brooklyn were
arrested in New York City for plotting to go to Syria and join ISIS – one of
whom offered to kill Obama if asked to do so. For planning to wage war against
the United States, they should have their passports invalidated and be tried as
enemies of the state.
They are coming for the Christians because Christians are
people of the cross, as the Muslim murderers have declared. They are coming for
the Christians because there are almost no Jews left in the territories upon which
these Muslim extremists are preying – after all they are not doing any real
praying. They are coming for the Christians simply because they are Christians.
In addition to the rampant slaughter of women, children,
and Christians of any sect, these barbarian Muslim extremists are destroying churches,
museums, and the antiquities of a faith and civilization that spans more than
There is only one answer to end the siege of Muslim
extremism and the global caliphate sought by ISIS/ISIL – death. Not
negotiation, not sitting around singing kum-by-ya, but death – evisceration,
eradication – death by any other name will be just as effective – and now. Now –
before ISIS/ISIL is marching down Main Street, USA.
Countries with ISIS or affiliate
activity: Afghanistan, Algeria, Indonesia, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Pakistan,
Philippines, and Syria (www.foxnews.com)

Jews live in Indonesia.” (2014 – Population 252 million)
Iraq – “Today the Jewish
community in Iraq is non-existent.”
Lebanon – “Today there are few if
any Jews remaining in Lebanon.”
