The Betrayal of the Christians

First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.

Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.

Pastor Martin Niemöller


    Throughout the Islamic world there is vicious persecution of Christians but the United States and Europe the bulwark of Christian civilization does nothing.  In fact when Osama was found to be hiding in plain sight in Pakistan and instead of apologizing the Pakistanis ranted about the U.S. killing him without their permission, that did not stop U.S. aid to Pakistan.  Widespread persecution of Christians in Egypt has not stopped the U.S. from sending money it doesn't have to Egypt.  Not only is the U.S. not intervening militarily it won't even stop giving billions of dollars to these countries.

    As always for cowardly bad behavior, there are rationalizations and justifications.  The justification for arming Pakistan is that they are helping us in the war against terror.  Never mind that they protected Osama bin Ladin.  Nevermind that their intelligence agency was heavily involved with the Mumbai massacres in which westerners were not only killed but tortured as well.  They are our allies in the war against terror the justification goes.  So we must arm Pakistan even though it launches terrorist attacks against India.  We must arm Egypt even though it aims to destroy Israel.  We must train the Palestinian Authority terrorists to fight against the Hamas terrorists. 

    I think that one of the reasons the United States engages in this behavior is that some of the foreign aid is invested in lobbying groups by the foreign countries that receive the money and these lobbying groups channel money back to the politicians who vote for the foreign aid.  I read something about this but I need to check on it. 

    Lenin said that the capitalists will sell us the rope with which we will hang them.  We are selling Muslims the swords with which they will behead us.
