Obama Throws Christian Refugees to Lions

While planning to bring Muslims from Syria under the excuse of political oppression and displacement, President Barack Hussein Obama is planning to deport Iraqi Christians who fled the butchery of the Islamic State. Those Christians have been held in California for the last six months. Does anyone see something wrong with this picture?

Obama Throws Christian Refugees to Lions

The fate of those Iraqi Christians who had fled from the Islamic State only to be incarcerated in the United States has finally been decided by the Obama administration: they are to be thrown back to the lions, where they will likely be persecuted if not slaughtered like so many Iraqi Christians before them.

Members of California’s Iraqi Christian community and their supporters protest the months-long detention of Iraqi Christian asylum-seekers at the Otay Mesa detention center.

Fifteen of the 27 Iraqi Christians that have been held at a detention center in Otay Mesa, California, for approximately six months, are set to be deported in the coming weeks. Some have already been deported and others are being charged with immigration fraud.

Many of the Iraqi Christian community in San Diego—including U.S. citizen family members vouching for the refugees—had hopes that they would eventually be released. Mark Arabo, a spokesman for the Chaldean community, had argued that “They’ve escaped hell [IS]. Let’s allow them to reunite with their families.” One of the detained women had begged to see her ailing mother before she died. The mother died before they could reunite, and now the daughter is to be deported, possibly back to the hell of the Islamic State.

Why are Christian minorities, who are the most to suffer from the chaos engulfing the Middle East, the least wanted in the United States?

The answer is that the Obama administration defines refugees as people “persecuted by their government.” In other words, the only “real” refugees are those made so due to the actions of Bashar Assad. As for those who are being raped, slaughtered, and enslaved based on their religious identity by so-called “rebel” forces fighting Assad—including the Islamic State—their status as refugees is evidently considered dubious at best.

As Abraham H. Miller argues in “No room in America for Christian refugees”: “What difference does it make which army imperils the lives of innocent Christians? Christians are still be[ing] slaughtered for being Christian, and their government is incapable of protecting them. Does some group have to come along—as Jewish groups did during the Holocaust—and sardonically guarantee that these are real human beings?”

In fact, from the start of Western meddling in the Mideast in the context of the “Arab Spring,” Christians were demonized for being supportive of secular strongmen like Assad. In a June 4, 2012 article discussing the turmoil in Egypt and Syria, the Independent’s Robert Fisk scoffed at how the Egyptian presidential candidate “Ahmed Shafiq, the Mubarak loyalist, [and rival to the Muslim Brotherhood’s Morsi] has the support of the Christian Copts, and Assad has the support of the Syrian Christians. The Christians support the dictators. Not much of a line, is it?”

More than three years later, the Western-supported “Arab Spring” proved an abysmal failure and the same Christian minorities that Fisk took to task were, as expected, persecuted in ways unprecedented in the modern era.

Even without defining refugees as people “persecuted by their government,” the Obama administration never seems to miss an opportunity to display its bias for Muslims against Christians. The U.S. State Dept. is in the habit of inviting scores of Muslim representatives but denying visas to solitary Christian representatives. While habitually ignoring the slaughter of Nigerian Christians at the hands of Boko Haram, the administration called for the “human rights” of the jihadi murderers. And when persecuted Copts planned on joining the anti-Muslim Brotherhood revolution, Obama said no. Then there is the fact that every Arab nation the Obama administration has meddled in—especially Libya and Syria—has seen a dramatic nosedive in the human rights of Christian minorities.

The Obama administration’s bias is evident even regarding to the Iraqi Christians’ illegal crossing of the U.S.-Mexico border, the occasion on which they were arrested. WND correctly observes: “At the same time the Obama administration [is] deporting Christians, it has over the years allowed in hundreds of Muslim migrants from Africa and the Middle East who crossed the Southern border the same way the Chaldeans did.”

Meanwhile, as the Obama administration nitpicks at the definition of refugee and uses it against severely persecuted Christian minorities, it turns out that four out of five migrants—or 80 percent—are not even from Syria.

And while Christian minorities pose little threat to the United States—indeed, they actually bring benefits to U.S. securityMuslims all around the U.S. are supporting the Islamic State and Muslim clerics are relying on the refugee influx to conquer Western nations, in the Islamic tradition of Hijra, or jihad by emigration.

As Koran 4:100 puts it: “And whoever emigrates for the cause of Allah will find on the earth many locations and abundance. And whoever leaves his home as an emigrant to Allah and His Messenger and then death overtakes him—his reward has already become incumbent upon Allah.”

In Islamic usage, the “cause of Allah” is synonymous with jihad to empower and enforce Allah’s laws on earth, or Sharia. In this context, immigrating into Western lands is a win-win for Muslims: if they die in the process somehow, paradise is theirs; if they don’t, the “locations and abundance” of the West are theirs.

All the while, true Christian refugees, fleeing the same hostile Muslim forces being allowed to enter Europe and America by the thousands, are thrown back to the lions by the Obama administration.

One thought on “Obama Throws Christian Refugees to Lions”

  1. Thanks a lot Oneway2day. I’d like to make an addition.

    “UN Gives EU Naval Forces the Green Light to Attack Migrant Vessels In Mediterranean”

    – Well, to me, it looks like they got all their troops into Europe on the first few pushes. Now all of a sudden, the same refugees that the Pope was calling on all of Europe to help, May get blown out of the water! You see, this is deception at its finest! They will continue to call on other countries ( like the US ) to take in more Alleged refugees. The problem is that the ones that are making it in to these places like Finland, are almost ALL MEN! And they are not even coming from Syria, But from Iraq. These are men with fresh gear, cell phones and smoking cigarettes. Not Men women and children fighting for their lives! The real tragedy is that the REAL REFUGEES Are all going to get slaughtered. Its GENOCIDE! Now the UN Gives Orders to the EU Navy to attack or seize vessels coming from Libya. Why would they all of a sudden turn the tables? –

    More from DAHBOO777


    – And Samuel spake unto all the house of Israel, saying, If ye do return unto the LORD with all your hearts, then put away the strange gods and Ashtaroth from among you, and prepare your hearts unto the LORD, and serve him only: and he will deliver you out of the hand of the Philistines. –


    – America’s success in the War on Terror will be dependent upon its position regarding Israel and how the Lord subsequently responds. The war that has begun in the Middle East is intensifying. The Islamic Empire makes little effort to hide their goal of eliminating the Christians and then finally the Jews. The descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and all those saved by the Cross of our Savior Jesus Christ have been labeled as the “infidels”, and their targets for terror. It is my firm conviction that America has entered into a long dark cloudy tunnel that will take America into a new world order that is ripe and ready for yet another new God. The Bible also talks about a global religious system it calls the harlot church. As fast as you can say, one world religion, faiths that long seemed to have irreconcilable differences are scrapping their principles and joining together for social and political reasons. (Revelation 17:4-6) Sadly, America is parading right down the path to the world religious system of the Antichrist!

    America, after emerging out from the other side of your dark cloudy tunnel of “War against Terrorism”, you will find that your affinity for other gods has lead you into a snare! The day is coming when the great God “Jehovah” will inquire of you:

    Deuteronomy 32:36-37 For the LORD shall judge his people, and repent himself for his servants, when he seeth that their power is gone, and there is none shut up, or left. And he shall say, Where are their gods, their Rock in whom they trusted? Whom do ye trust America for your salvation? Whom is the rock of your hope and security? Is your God above all others?

    These questions should be of the uppermost importance in the minds of all Americans as our country tackles an enemy that is beyond our scope of diagnosis. The battle may be lost even before we begin to pursue the fight. In the aftermath of America’s soul-searching, and trying to analyze why such an evil event happened to America, some of our reputable religious leaders pointed the blame squarely at the sinful characteristics within our society. I would beg to differ. “I lay the blame squarely upon the people of God”. We have known God, and yet we have diminished our God in our land. So, it is time to repent America! It is time to humbly ask God for forgiveness and seek only him and it has likely become now or never! –
