Amnesia is a condition that refers to an inability to recall information that is stored in memory. In straightforward terms, amnesia is the loss of memory. There are myriad forms of amnesia…including the popular term for amnesia for certain events: Selective amnesia. As generally used, selective amnesia refers to a deliberate inability (unwillingness) to recall an event’s specifics.
Concerning the blatant Muslim persecution of Christians globally, it appears that the leader of the Free World (Obama) has a case of Selective Amnesia…
The persecution of Christians globally, is no secret. Christians are the most persecuted people group on the globe today. Muslim terror groups such as ISIS, Boko Haram and Al Shabaab have broadcast their hatred and targeting of Christians in social media…I guess there’s no reason for shame when the media, and most leaders in the West, see the perps (Muslims) as the victims.
Here are some startling FACTS concerning the Muslim persecution of Christians, that can be easily obtained in our info age:
— According to the Vatican and further confirmed by Sociologist Massimo Introvigne ( Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe [OSCE]): More than 100,000 Christians are killed every year for their faith. As a matter of fact, Introvigne states that a Christian is murdered every 5 minutes for their belief.
— 9 out of the 10 worst countries for Christian persecution have a 50% or greater Muslim population, according to CNSNews.
— According to Open Doors, “Approximately 100 million Christians are persecuted worldwide, making them one of the most persecuted religious groups in the world…Islamic extremism is the main source of persecution in 40 of the 50 countries on the 2015 World Watch List.”
— Raymond Ibrahim, author, speaker and Middle East and Islam specialist (and one of the foremost researchers and analysts of Christian persecution under Islam), believes Christians are facing extinction in the Middle East.

There have been a plethora of times when the “Christian” leader of the Free World could have spoken out against the slaughter and ostensible genocide of Christians under Muslim persecution, but Mr. Obama has chosen to remain reticent OR give the impression that the reverse was occurring. Columnist Charles Krauthammer said concerning the 21 Coptic Christians beheaded by Islamic ISIS:[President Obama] sounds like a community organizer talking about outreach to communities. If you listen to the president today, and his emphasis on Islamic grievances, on reaching out, on making Muslims feel comfortable and not excluded, you would think that we are responding to the execution, the beheading of 21 Muslims on behalf of 21 extreme Christians somewhere in the world.
And Mr. Obama’s most recent offense (or one might say surreptitious soft Jihad on Christians): he conveniently left out the fact that Al Shabaab targeted and killed 150 Christian students in Kenya. This Militant Muslim group asked each student if they were Christian or Muslim. If they answered Christian, they were shot or beheaded. Al Shabaab killed 150 Christians SPECIFICALLY because they were Christian.
Here is his official statement:
Michelle and I join the American people in expressing our horror and sadness at the reports coming out of Garissa, Kenya. Words cannot adequately condemn the terrorist atrocities that took place at Garissa University College, where innocent men and women were brazenly and brutally massacred. We join the world in mourning them, many of whom were students pursuing an education in the pursuit of a better life for themselves and their loved ones. They represented a brighter future for a region that has seen too much violence for far too long. We also commend the heroism of the responders who lost their lives in the selfless protection of the students and faculty.
I know firsthand the extraordinary resilience and fundamental decency of the people of Kenya. So I know that the people of Garissa and all of Kenya will grieve, but their determination to achieve a better and more secure future will not be deterred. And neither will the resolve of the United States. We will stand hand-in-hand with the Kenyan Government and people against the scourge of terrorism and in their efforts to bring communities together. This much is clear: the future of Kenya will not be defined by violence and terror; it will be shaped by young people like those at Garissa University College – by their talents, their hopes, and their achievements. This is a message I will relay to the Kenyan people when I visit Kenya in July. Even at this difficult hour, the Kenyan people should know they have an unwavering friend and ally in the United States of America.
NOWHERE does he mention that the victims were Christian, nor that all of the perps were Muslim.
What hope does the Free World have if the so-called leader of it, refuses to acknowledge genocide by a fascist ideology longing to forcibly convert, enslave or slaughter ALL who refuse to submit ? (“Islam” means submission.)
It’s time for ALL people who treasure freedom…whether Jewish, Christian or Atheist…to unite against the lies and acts of omission that AID the tyrannical, oppressive ideology of Islam.
Remembering, as Thomas Paine once said: “Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.”
Shalom through strength…
