Christianity is on the verge of extinction across much of the Middle East — the land of its birth — as establishment-spawned savages such as the self-styled “Islamic State” (ISIS) butcher, torture, and enslave ancient Christian communities, especially in Syria and Iraq. The ongoing genocide against Christians has accelerated in recent years, thanks in large measure to the “foreign policy” machinations of the U.S. government and its allies in the region. But the brutal slaughter has remained largely out of sight as the establishment press ignores the phenomenon — and especially the role of the Obama administration in all of it.

Last month, the New York Times Magazine broke the silence, somewhat, by running a major exposé on the extermination campaign on its cover. The piece told the tragic story of ancient Christian communities that have been part of the region for some 2,000 years, but that are now facing mass-murder, forced conversions, crucifixions, being sold into slavery, and other horrors at the hands of Islamists. The article notes that Christians, “who often serve as stand-ins for the West,” have been targeted by “extremists” for more than a decade — particularly in Iraq following the U.S. invasion. But it does not tell the whole story about why.

The Times article, written by Eliza Griswold, notes that the invasion caused hundreds of thousands of Christians to flee Iraq. “Since 2003, we’ve lost priests, bishops and more than 60 churches were bombed,” Bashar Warda, the Chaldean Catholic archbishop of the Iraqi city of Erbil, was quoted as saying. Numerous other Christian leaders have spoken out, too, as The New American has been reporting for years. The Times report cites estimates suggesting that the population of Christians in Iraq went from around 1.5 million in 2003 to less than 500,000 today. Other estimates suggest the ethnic cleansing has been even more thorough.
