Obama Must Act to Stop the Slaughter


(Washington, DC) – The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) said today the abduction of up to 150 Christians – including women and children – by the Islamic State (ISIS) in Syria underscores the urgent need for President Obama to lead a worldwide coalition to stop the slaughter of Christians – to put an end to the war against Christians by radical jihadists – a war that continues unabated.

“It is unacceptable for President Obama, the West and the United Nations to stand idly by and watch the systematic elimination of Christians by radical Islamists,” said Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the ACLJ. “How many more Christians must be murdered because of their religious beliefs? Without a specific strategy to eliminate this evil, ISIS remains emboldened and continues to use these tragic events to recruit more radical jihadists. It is clear ISIS intends to continue to target and execute Christians. It is time for President Obama to exercise leadership – to assemble a global coalition – and put an effective strategy into action to stop the slaughter of Christians – to put an end to this jihadist war against Christians.”

The abduction of the Christians in Syria by ISIS comes just days after the radical Islamists beheaded 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians in Libya. The stepped up violence against Christians comes as the FBI today took three people into custody in Brooklyn, New York for allegedly plotting to travel overseas to join ISIS.

The ACLJ contends President Obama’s failed foreign policy continues to restrict our fight against ISIS. More than 100,000 Americans have signed on to an ACLJ petition opposing President Obama’s “Authorization for the Use of Military Force” - a flawed strategy that would remain in place even after President Obama leaves office.

Led by ACLJ Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow, the American Center for Law and Justice is headquartered in Washington, D.C. He is author of the New York Times bestseller, “Rise of ISIS: A Threat We Can't Ignore.”
