The Gathering Storm (The American Spectator)

In a 1934 speech before the House of Commons, Winston Churchill said this:

“Germany is arming fast, and no one is going to stop her.  I dread the day when the means of threatening the heart of the British Empire should pass into the hands of the present rulers of Germany … I dread that day, but it is not, perhaps, far distant.”

For this he was called a “warmonger.”  But Churchill was, we now know, prophetic.

The days in which we live are not so different from the 1930s.  In Islamic fundamentalism the West faces the greatest threat to its existence since the Second World War.  And like those times, we are sleep walking through it.  Not only do Western leaders—and even the Pope—refuse to acknowledge the causal link between Islam and terrorism, they have become facilitators of terrorism through the sheer idiocy of unrestricted mass immigration policies.  In so doing, they have casually endangered and sacrificed the lives of the citizens they are sworn to protect—all for the sake of a utopian social experiment.

In the 1930s, it was chiefly persecution of the Jews that went ignored by Western media and governments.  Today it is not only the Jewish people, but Christians most of all.

According to Spectator Magazine (UK) “80 percent of all acts of religious discrimination in the world today are directed at Christians.  Statistically speaking, that makes Christians by far the most persecuted religious body on the planet….  In effect, the world is witnessing the rise of an entirely new generation of Christian martyrs.  The carnage is occurring on such a vast scale that it represents not only the most dramatic Christian story of our time, but arguably the premier human rights challenge of this era as well.”

The primary oppressor of Christians and Jews (and other Muslims) is Islam.  The Archbishop of Erbil (in Iraq), Bashar Warda, has said that the threat posed by ISIS is enough to bring about “the extinction of Christianity as a religion and as a culture in Mesopotamia.”

According to the Global Terrorism Index, there has been a fivefold increase in fatalities from terrorist acts since 9/11.  Four groups are responsible for most of these.  All of them are Islamic.
