On Easter Sunday in a park in Lahore, Pakistan, radical Muslim terrorists targeted and slaughtered Christians. Over 70 died, mostly women and children, because they were targeted. A least three hundred more were injured.
That’s more than in the Brussels attack!
Christians in the Middle East are enduring escalated persecution, including the Christian minority in Pakistan.
The press secretary for President Obama refused to mention the religious nature of the attacks.
In stark contrast, European leaders condemned the Islamic militants and their deliberate massacre of Christians in Pakistan.
British Prime Minister David Cameron spoke directly on this matter, demanding that his country defend Christian values.
Presidential candidate Ted Cruz vividly and vocally denounced this act of Islamic terror:
“The evil that is radical Islamism struck in Pakistan today–the very day we celebrate the resurrection of the Prince of Peace–in a shocking display of savagery.
“Once again we are reminded there are no holidays from this enemy, and no one–not commuters going to work in Brussels, not mothers and children celebrating Easter in a park in Lahore–are immune from its wrath. We must redouble our resolve to band with friends and allies to defeat it. Our prayers are with our brothers and sisters in Pakistan.”
What have other Presidential candidates said about the massive slaughter of Pakistani Christians?
“My prayers are with the victims of the horrific Easter Day attack in Lahore. Pakistan and all nations must confront & defeat terrorists.”
“The cowardly mass execution of innocent women and children, reportedly including Christian families, on Easter Sunday in Lahore, Pakistan is an outrage.
“Coming on the heels of the terrorist attacks in Belgium, it is further confirmation that radical terrorists are at war with our culture, our values and our way of life.
“This type of terrorism is an existential threat to all who share our values. It must be defeated.”
“We are grieving today for the families affected by the deplorable attack in Lahore. No one should ever fear taking their children to a park.”
“Another radical Islamic attack, this time in Pakistan, targeting Christian women & children. At least 67 dead,400 injured. I alone can solve.”
The State Department, Obama, and the politicians’ refusal to acknowledge Islam and the genocide against Christians needs to be a central issue in the 2016 Election.
