ISIS Massacres More Christians

By Jay Sekulow1429556099669

“You will not have safety even in your dreams, until you accept Islam,” declares a masked figure, speaking English with an American accent and pointing a revolver toward the camera. “To the nation of the cross: We are back again.”

As reported in The New York Times, the latest ISIS video shows the massacre of dozens of Ethiopian Christians in Libya, some beheaded and others shot execution-style. The report has more details:

The Islamic State released a video on Sunday that appears to show fighters from its branches in southern and eastern Libya executing dozens of Ethiopian Christians, some by beheading and others by shooting. . . .
[T]he video of the killings, if confirmed, would be the first evidence that the group’s leaders in those countries are coordinating with fighters under the group’s banner in those parts of Libya, compounding fears of its expansion across the Mediterranean.

The Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, released a video in February that appeared to show masked fighters in its western Libyan branch, the so-called Tripolitania Province of the Islamic State, beheading a group of Egyptian Christians who had been abducted in the city of Surt. . . .

Militants in Egypt, Algeria, Afghanistan, Nigeria and elsewhere have pledged loyalty to the Islamic State and its self-declared caliphate, but Libya is the first country outside the group’s territory in Syria and Iraq where its core leadership has demonstrated practical communication and collaboration with its far-flung “provinces.”

Radical jihadists loyal to ISIS’s radical Islamic army continue their reign of terror. The massacre of these desperate Ethiopian Christians trying to flee to Europe is the latest atrocity committed by these evil forces.

We must not forget the 21 Egyptian Christians beheaded last month.

We must not forget the 147 Christian college students massacred in Kenya.

We must not forget the 17 Christians killed in bombings while worshipping at a church in Pakistan.

The radical Islamic genocide against Christians continues. The number of Christians brutally murdered by ISIS and its jihadist allies increases exponentially. For those who are not murdered, they face torture, slavery, rape, and human trafficking.

We must do everything we can to protect persecuted Christians around the world before the global Church faces complete eradication.

Stand with us and call on President Obama and Congress to stop ISIS’s genocide of Christians.
