The Christian population of the Middle East, there for 2,000 years, is being subjected to relentless persecution and forced conversion. The response of the mainstream media and almost all Western governments: Say nothing, do nothing.
Think about that for a moment to let it sink in.
During the past few years, we have seen many jihadist terror attacks across the West, killing hundreds of innocents in the US, France, Belgium, Germany and Spain. And let us not forget the steady drip-drip of jihadi “lone-wolf” knife attacks in Australia, Britain, Israel, Germany, France and the Netherlands.
What is the response of the European leadership to our new reality? Denial, word games and silence. And verbal attacks on citizens who insist on talking about the threats we face. They call us “Islamophobic” or “racist” to try to silence us.
Western governments have been successfully working with social media giants such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Microsoft to censor what they call “hate speech” – meaning any criticism of extremist Islam and unvetted immigration.
In some European countries, the police are interrogating citizens for social media posts that are critical of the effects of unchecked migration.
Meanwhile, Iran entrenches its hegemonic reach in Yemen, Lebanon, Syria and Iraq — while expanding and accelerating its nuclear weapons program and its threats to Israel.
Gatestone Institute hammers home the message that we need to end the lawlessness rampant, even in high levels the “Swamp;” protect the free word from the lawless International Criminal Court (ICC); defend our nation from predators, whether, China, North Korea, Russia, or those in our hemisphere, such as Cuba and Venezuela; stop illegal migration from North Africa and the Middle East; defeat extremist Islamism; aid persecuted Christian minorities in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia and prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons – ever.
At a time when Facebook censors, blocks or removes Gatestone’s material, we refuse to be silenced; we continue to publish our carefully researched, accurate articles.
But Gatestone needs your help. We need to combat this censorship that at the end is meant for all of us. To do this, Gatestone needs to strengthen its community of experts, to ensure their vital work continues to make its significant impact.
Can I count on you to make a contribution, to help us win this battle of ideas?
