It’d be laughable if the consequences weren’t so deadly.
Yesterday, during Day 1 of the Democratic National Convention, during 61 different speeches given from the podium in Philadelphia, ISIS and radical jihadist terrorism was not mentioned at all – not one reference.
As Christians are slaughtered, silence. As suicide bombers detonate, no response.
Based on our searches of C-SPAN closed-captioning text, Congressional Quarterly transcripts and other video archiving services, we couldn’t find any speaker who mentioned "ISIS," "Islamic" "terror," "terrorist," or "terrorism" during the first day of the convention.
This is both troubling and dangerous. And if it’s not corrected in the next three days of the convention, it’s clear dereliction of duty from one of America’s two major political parties.
The threat facing our nation and all of western civilization from ISIS and other jihadists is grave and affects every single American, no matter what their political affiliation or presidential preference. We’re all better off if all of our leaders at every level – from both political parties – recognize the dangers we face and the actions that must be taken to eliminate this evil once and for all.

The genocidal attacks against Christians are no longer confined to one region. The jihadists could strike anywhere and at any time. In the last week, they’ve struck numerous times in Germany and numerous times in France. In the last month, they’ve struck the United States.

It should be a bipartisan effort for all Americans to realize we must take the war to them and eliminate this escalating threat once and for all. Hopefully, terror and ISIS will be addressed in the coming days.
