The Tragedy of the Christians in the Middle East

The above is my article as it appeared in the Jewish News Syndicate, (JNS) an on Line periodical,

I think the article fills a void, in that the West mostly ignores the plight of the Christians in The Islamic East and the Christians of the East and those of the West must apportion much of the blame on themselves. In my church one often hears “God is love,” And pontification about the Sermon on the mount as abjuring violence. Of course …. but only an idiot, as apparently many Christian clerics are, would interpret that to mean one stands idly by as his family, home or country is attacked. It is a liberal invention to justify cowardice. It seems to be widespread in the Western ” “Christian” world.

      Thanks o much dear Connie. Btw I read the backstabbing book and it was funny but sad also because it revealed the depth of corruption in the UN

      Thanks much Connie. You have always been a loyal supporter of the ideas I try to put out in the face of appealing ignorance especially by academics who propagandize instead of teaching
