“Conservatives” Silent on the Genocide of Christians in the Middle East
by Christopher Manion
Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA) took to the House floor yesterday to condemn the silence in Washington – in both the White House and Congress — regarding the massacres of Christians in Iraq (especially) and the rest of the Middle East.
Why is Washington silent, he asks?
Christian leaders in Iraq have put the blame for these atrocities squarely on George W. Bush and his invasion and occupation of Iraq in 2003.
Half a million Christians have fled Mosul. Any who remain will be slaughtered.
Patriarch Louis Raphael I Sako, head of Iraq’s Catholic Church, says that the invasion did what Moslems couldn’t do in 1500 years: destroy Christianity in Iraq.
