The U.S. government and the Republicans—worse than nothing
I have repeatedly described Romney and the Republicans as “nothings,” “vacancies,” and “empty suits.” But the truth is worse than that. The U.S. government actively assists the Muslim Brotherhood and the spread of Islamic-law government in the Middle East, and, as Andrew McCarthy wrote in July, the Republican establishment actively supports that evil and traitorous policy.
In connection with which, a reader sends this by Srdja (Serd-ya) Trifkovic:
Fourteen centuries of Islam have fatally undermined Christianity in the land of its birth. The decline of the Christian remnant in the Middle East has been accelerated in recent decades, and accompanied by the indifference of the post-Christian West to its impending demise. Once-thriving Christian communities are now tiny minorities, and in most countries of the region their percentages have been reduced to single digits. Whether they disappear completely will partly depend on Western leaders belatedly taking an interest in Christian plight and persecution. This seems most unlikely, as the examples of Iraq, Egypt and Syria demonstrate.Gintas, who sent the Trifkovic article, comments:
Obama’s foreign policy in such places is pro-Muslim anti-Christian; whenever he gets a chance he works against Christians and for Muslims. It is a good thing for Obama he has never faced Charles Martel or Jan Sobieski. God save and preserve us.
It should be noted that Obama is not the first president to enact policies that have been disastrous to Middle Eastern Christians. Bush’s reckless invasion and occupation of Iraq and indifference to their plight led to the exile of most of the Assyrian Christians in Iraq. The U.S. government has provided billions of dollars to the Pakistani government which is waging a cleansing of Christians from that country. Likewise, Bill Clinton stood by as Muslim Albanians destroyed medieval churches and monasteries and drove out Christian Serbs from their ancient homeland in Kosovo. American politicians, both Republican and Democrat, simply do not care about the destruction of ancient Christian communities, nor do they care about the long term consequences of empowering the most radical factions of Muslims in Eastern Europe and the Middle East.Thomas Bertonneau writes:
Fact: Romney never complains about the adverse consequences for Christians of the Obama-Clinton “Arab Spring” foreign policy. This should surprise no one. As for Obama, whatever he is by religious conviction (a Trayvonian, maybe), he is not a Christian; he is a sotto-voce anti-Christian, who sat in the front pew of the God-Damn-America Church in Chicago for twenty years. Consequently the expulsion of Christians, and frequently their murder, bothers him not at all. And the same enormity bothers Mitt Romney not at all. But why should it? Romney is not a Christian either. He is a Mormon who by profession denies the Trinitarian God and directs his worship elsewhere, to some synthetic deity dreamed up in the early nineteenth century in the burnt-over region of New York State. Devout Muslims inherit a fief in paradise. So do devout Mormons. Or rather—they inherit a planet, over which they become a god. To this we have come: The choice between a repellent Marxian-Quasi-Muslim leftist and the smiling, oily follower of an Islam-like, essentially anti-Christian creed that, in a more recent historio-cultural context, would be immediately recognizable as a flying-saucer cult.LA replies:
Your denunciation of Mormonism is incompatible with, and fails to explain, the fact that many Mormons, notably Mitt Romney, live exemplary lives. How do you explain a flying saucer cult having such beneficent effects on its adherents?David P. writes (September 8):
In addition to the Democrats supporting a ban on profits, for 50 years at least, America, Republican or Democrat governed, has consistently sided with expansionist Islam’s war against non-Muslim states or people. From handing over Timor to Indonesia, siding with Pakistan, as it mass murdered Hindus in East Pakistan, or Serbia and Kosovo, and now siding with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and Syria. In all these, America installed fanatic Muslim governments, leading either to mass murder of Christians, or their persecution and expulsion, as in Iraq. We will see the same scenario repeated in Syria.September 10

The Alawaites are a crypto-Christian Shiite sect that a sane West should have fully supported since the time of the French Mandate. They were mainly rural people and the descendants of the pre-Islamic Syraic Christian rural population.Alan Roebuck writes:
