WHY ARE CHRISTIANS BEING SLAUGHTERED IN IRAQ?
Dr. Laurie Roth Ph.D.
Well, the New Year may hold amazing things for America and the world, some good, some bad and some frightening! In Iraq we see a new, fragile Government trying to grow and mature their security forces and begin to take over from the US militaryís help. The hatred between the Sunni and the Shiites as well as the constant influx of serial killers from Iran, Syria and other Middle East meddlers doesnít help. Neither does the manipulation and constant negative slamming given by our media and many in congress.
Thoughtful criticism and analysis of changes needed is proper and in any war. It is fair to assess at this stage how long we need to be in Iraq now, when will Iraq be stabilized, when will security work well enough to thrive and when can they stand on their own.
As supportive as I have been and still am about finishing this phase of the world war in Iraq, I was disturbed and reminded of something, which slaps in the face of what we are trying to establish in Iraq. Last night I interviewed Dr. Paul Williams, an FBI trainer and terrorism analyst. He shared tragic information about numerous Syrian Christians in Iraq being targeted and slaughtered by Iraqi authorities because of Islamic law. Many had been decapitated by Iraqi authorities. Hundreds more have fled the country as refugees.
I have heard none of this in the news, not that we would hear any truth from our media about the various real dramas going on in Iraq. Why do that when you can position Iraq coverage only to manipulate votes away from Bush and His supporters. Here this whole time I have been under the impression we were building a fragile, but true democratic government style, not Taliban like Islamic law that wipes out Christians and anyone falling under the high and impossible bar from hell. Why has this never made the news over here? This needs to be addressed as an emergency in Iraq. If they want to be Islamic that is their deal, but are we rescuing and rebuilding their country to have all the non-Islamic residents rounded up and slaughtered? I think not!!!!!!!!
If Islam is a Religion of peaceÖ..Iím waiting with baited breath to find the sense of fair play, peace, respect and value for human life. Where is it? Why is everyone but the fundamentalist Islamic called infidels and why does that mean we have to die?
call on my Government and military authorities to address the human
rights abuses and murders of Iraqis in the name of Islamic law! We
donít need to have our troops die to help build another Taliban! Deal
