The EU Backstabs Christians For Islam
Chaldean Catholic Archbishop of Mosul (Iraq) Najeeb Michaeel Moussa, in a recent interview with stated that “the European Union has undoubtedly lagged behind the European peoples who have courageously mobilized to express their solidarity with the Christians of the East in general and the Christians of Iraq in particular.” Moussa went so far to state: “I think that the European Union was aware of the persecutions that have affected Christians in Iraq, Syria, Egypt, but also in Lebanon,” and yet has remained largely indifferent to this persecution.
The betrayal of the EU should be of no surprise since in its support of the United Nations globalist agenda it seeks to undermine Christianity in order to favor Islam. In June 2015, Federica Mogherini, the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, stated: “I am not afraid to say that political Islam should be part of the picture.”
In 2018, The European Court of Human Rights ruled that criticism of the Prophet Muhammed constitutes incitement to hatred and therefore is not protected free speech — interesting how the Jesus could be both criticized and mocked without any repercussions.
The case involved Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff, an Austrian woman who in 2011 was convicted of “denigrating religious beliefs” after giving a series of lectures presenting the historical truth of the pedophile practices of the founder of Islam with his third wife, Aisha; most hadiths (collections of traditions containing the words and actions of Muhammed) confirm that Aisha was a prepubescent girl of nine years of age when Muhammed, age fifty-six, consumed his marriage with her.
In its unprecedented decision, the Strasbourg-based court — which has jurisdiction over 47 European countries, and whose rulings are legally binding on all 28 member states of the European Union — has effectively legitimized an Islamic blasphemy code in the interests of “preserving religious peace” in Europe.
It is because of this politically correct position that has primarily contributed to Christian genocide in the Middle East and Africa. In the words of Hungarian Prime Minister Victor Orbán: “According to the liberals, this is fine, because they don’t like Christian society,” before noting that the suicidal choice was theirs to make, but that forcing Central Europeans to follow in their footsteps is completely unacceptable.
The mainstream media also has a role in covering up for Islamists. And it is just not Christians who suffer because of this, Yazidis and other religious minorities, too.
This July the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) News produced a documentary mini-series “Once Upon a Time in Iraq.” Directed by British filmmaker James Bluemel, it offered an in-depth look at lives devastated by the U.S. invasion in 2003, the post-Saddam Hussein era and ISIS. However, as tends to be common with giant media communications and Western politicians, the BBC production omitted the plight of religious minorities: Christians, Yazidis and others.
It goes without say that persecuted Christians and other religious minorities are equally not expect any help from the United Nations.
The UN Human Rights Council’s 47-member countries include some of the world’s most brutal and dictatorial regimes with drastic records of apartheid or police brutality — Burkina Faso (which initiated the session), Bangladesh, Cameroon, Democratic Republic of Congo, Pakistan, Somalia, Eritrea and Qatar; Russia, Cuba and China were elected to the council this month.
“Europe is becoming the sick child of the modern world, because it is moving away from its faith and its cultural and religious roots,” said Archbishop Moussa. “By dint of turning away from the Church and its heritage, it falls in love with the worst fundamentalist, lax or individualistic ideologies, as long as they are opposed to those who built it.”
Not every single EU member-state, as already highlighted, has been misled by the EU’s also promotion of religious freedom, which only serves to silence Christianity and propagate Islam. As Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó stated early this year:
“Hungary shares the conviction of the new alliance — [the new International Religious Freedom Alliance launched by U.S. President Donald Trump] — that more must be done to protect members of religious minority groups and combat discrimination and persecution based on religion and does not accept that international organizations ‘turn a blind eye’ to the persecution of Christian communities around the world.”
If only other EU nation-states would follow the lead of Hungary, then perhaps there may a a chance to at least contain, if not halt the slaughter against Christians and other religious minorities by Islamists.
