On yesterday’s edition of “Trunews,” End Times radio broadcaster Rick Wiles accused President Obama of deliberately ignoring ISIS’ campaign of horrific violence against Christians in northern Iraq. Wiles did so by editing Obama’s recent remarks about ISIS to drop his condemnation of the extremist group’s crimes against Christians.
“Barack Hussein The Muslim Obama couldn’t bring himself to denouncing the Islamic State for its savage butchery of Christians,” Wiles said, before falsely claiming that Obama trained ISIS militants to “slaughter Christians.”
Here is what Obama actually said, clearly mentioning the suffering of Christians and the genocide against the Yazidis.
Let’s be clear about ISIL. They have rampaged across cities and villages killing innocent, unarmed civilians in cowardly acts of violence. They abduct women and children and subject them to torture and rape and slavery. They have murdered Muslims, both Sunni and Shia, by the thousands. They target Christians and religious minorities, driving them from their homes, murdering them when they can, for no other reason than they practice a different religion. They declared their ambition to commit genocide against an ancient people. So ISIL speaks for no religion. Their victims are overwhelmingly Muslim, and no faith teaches people to massacre innocents.
