Don’t Confuse Me With the Facts: Jihad vs Crusades

Barack Obama is an educated man.  Unfortunately, most Americans are not.  So when he compares the Islamic State jihad to the crusades at the National Prayer Breakfast, he gets a collective uh-huh from a lot of Americans.  He knows the difference, but the facts are not convenient in this case, so he chooses to ignore them.

The IS is systematically eliminating Christians from the Middle East and they are doing it in the most horrid and unthinkable ways.  They are kidnapping, raping, maiming, beheading and crucifying Christians – men, women, the elderly and children of every age.  Children!

When the president of the United States makes such ignorant statements, he is intentionally vilifying Christians, and in doing so, is emboldening the extremists around the world to continue on their mission of extermination.

This five-minute video illustrates the difference between the crusades and jihad in world history.  There are no images of violence.  Just a world map and a very helpful explanation.  Please share it with as many people as will listen…even those who, like our president, don’t want to be confused with the facts.

    Thank you for your boldness in proclaiming truth. I listened to the YouTube “The Most Persecuted Minority” and then the soothing music of The Maranatha group, both inspiring to prayer and concern for our country.
