On Fox News’ America’s Newsroom, Wednesday morning, Lt. Col Ralph Peters (Ret.) used biblical terms to describe the president’s wanton disregard for the ongoing slaughter of Christians that is ongoing in the Middle East. Describing the bloodletting as a holocaust, in which our president is doing nothing, Peters called Obama a reincarnation of Pontius Pilate washing his hands, but he said this blood is not coming off.
Host Bill Hemmer wondered if ISIS was bent on genocide, “or is it land they want.”
“They certainly would like land,” Peters replied. “But the immediate target are Christians, Jews, Yazidis, other minorities – but especially Christians because Christian civilization in that region predates Islam. It’s been there for 2,000 years. Bill the first 1000 years of Christianity, in the greater Middle East and North Africa – those were the cities where the saints – the theologians – there were far more Christians in the Middle East back then, than there were in Europe.”
He continued, “but what we are seeing now is an Islamist attempt to exterminate the last vestiges of Christian civilization in the Middle East. After the holocaust of World War II the world said never again. But Bill O’Reilly is right, it’s happening again. It is a genuine holocaust against Christians.
These Christians are kidnapped. Our president does nothing.
Christians are tortured and even crucified publicly. Our president does nothing.
The Christian women are kidnapped and raped and raped again. Our president does nothing.
Christians are driven from their homes in the Middle East but the hundreds of thousands, slaughtered by the tens of thousands, and our president does nothing!
He is the reincarnation of Pontius Pilate washing his hands, but this blood is not coming off.”
(You can bet this one has Medea Mutters in an uproar.)
Peters went on to say that the so-called coalition is a total lie. And the idea that ISIS is going to listen to the State Dept’s “demands” to let the captives free, he found ludicrous.
“Do you really think ISIS pays much attention to Jen Psaki?” he sneered. “You’ve got to act!”
