Amor vincit Omnia; Love conquers all.
Except when it doesn’t, because it’s counterfeit.
Counterfeit love is no match for the most genuine hatred of all.
The heart-rending drama involving Christians being played out across much of the Islamic world has exposed something deeply disturbing about the human race. Something in the lumber room is moving and is scratching at the door.
The nations should at present be absorbed with two or three matters, one of these is certainly the plight of Christians fleeing the gory sword of Islam, and of the other two candidates, the Israel/Hamas war doesn’t come even close to them, or shouldn’t do so.
In Mosul, Iraq, one of the world’s most ancient Christian communities, some 60,000 souls, has disappeared overnight, those that didn’t flee – more than 1,000 families – had the doors of their homes identified with an “N” for “Nazarene”, marked for slaughter. Courtesy of the new Muslim “Caliphate”.
Homs, Syria, had a population of 80,000 Christians, then the jihadis came. An escaped teenage Syrian girl said: “We left because they were trying to kill us… “
Yes, but you must wait because Jews are refusing to bare their children’s necks to the blade of Islam.
200,000 in Mali have fled from looting, destruction and torture. In Egypt, 100,000, and so on.
Where have the poor souls fled to? Where are they sleeping tonight?
Who cares, as long as Israel dares to defend her children from Hamas rockets and murder tunnels, this is the news which sends the righteous of the nations into a tailspin. Evidently, for all of their fine talk about “compassion” and “consideration”, the nations do not care half so much about helping the hundreds of thousands of Christians as they do for heating up their irons and branding little Israel for killing – albeit reluctantly – 1,886 and having the audacity to lose only 66 of their own people in the process. This is scandalously called “Disproportionate” by warped minds. No, the Christians will have to wait, this is far more important.
This is the hatred which diminishes everything around it.
Love for the Christians with nowhere to run shrinks and pales into insignificance before the Grendel of Jew hatred. Like that Saxon horror of over a thousand years past, this pathological hatred “makes its home in a hell. Not hell, but hell on earth.”
Nothing else matters except: Get the Jew, and, by extension, throttle Israel.
God in heaven weeps. Tell me He doesn’t.
