No April Fool! Obama Set To Give Iran Another Gift & The Genocide Continues
|Kerry Gives Obama Love to Iran|
Satire image -- but also true.
Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Mark Kirk (R- IL) sent a tough letter to Secretary of the Treasury Jacob Lew critical of the plan. The letter warned Lew that, "Any such effort would benefit Iran's financiers of international terrorism, human rights abuses, and ballistic missile threats."
The Genocide Continues
In March, the Obama Administration, after much prodding from Congress, finally designated that the atrocities being committed by ISIS against Christians and other religious minorities in parts of Syria and Iraq constitute "genocide." But simply declaring genocide does nothing to stop it. And this week brought more evidence that the persecution continues.
According to Breitbart News, ISIS has decreed that Christians living in their capital city of Raqqa, located on the Euphrates River in northern Syria, are forbidden from leaving the city. Why? Doesn't ISIS want to eradicate Christians, cleanse Christianity from their homelands and establish an Islamic caliphate? Yes, yes and yes. But the terrorist group sees some value in keeping the Christians around, at least for a while.
There are only 43 Christian families left in Raqqa, according to one report. That's down from as many as 1,500 Christian families before the war. ISIS wants to use the remaining Christians as human shields in case the city is attacked by the forces of Bashar al-Assad or those of Russia.
Once again, Christians are paying the price for Islamic extremism.
