Why Is The US Risking War In the Middle East To Save Muslims But Not Christians?

The news out of Syria seems to indicate that the Syrian government used chemical weapons on their own people.  That has Obama and US officials outraged.  They are preparing to take military action against the Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad.  Russia has warned us not to use military force against the Assad regime and Iran has threatened all-out war if we do.

UN investigators are in Syria trying to determine if chemical weapons were used or not.  The death toll is unclear, but the estimate ranges anywhere from 330 to 1,800 people have died so far.  As best as I have been able to determine, most of the victims are their own Muslim people.

I admit this is tragic but we are not and cannot be the world’s police.  But if we are, then I have to ask why Obama and US officials are so outraged and ready to risk starting a war in the Middle East to protect Muslims, who hate and want to destroy America, but they won’t lift a finger to help the hundreds and thousands of Christians under attack in the Middle East and North Africa?

Hundreds of Christians in Egypt were being beaten, murdered, burned, women raped, homes and churches burned and destroyed.  Morsi’s supporters attacked and burned 63 Christian churches in past couple weeks.  The White House remains silent.

In areas of Nigeria, whole Christian communities are being attacked, destroyed, and thousands of Christians being attacked, killed or driven out of their homes.  The White House remains silent.

Uncounted numbers of Christians have been slaughtered in the Sudan.  The White House remains silent.

Muslims are persecuting Christians in Saudi Arabia, Kazakhstan, Turkey, Sudan, Nigeria, Turkmenistan, South Africa, Egypt, Indonesia, Iran, Pakistan, Kashmir and Mali.  The White House remains silent.

I believe this speaks volumes of where our nation’s priorities lie.  Our leaders have demonstrated time and time again that they are more concerned for Muslims worldwide than they are for Christians.  They are ready risk starting a major war in the Middle East to protect Muslims, but these same leaders have never risked anything for the sake of the thousands of Christians in the Middle East that are being persecuted and killed, and I for one demand to know why!
