Iraqi Christians are raped, murdered and driven from their homes – and the West is silent – Telegraph Blogs:
The West’s direct intervention in Iraq created Hell on Earth for its
Christian citizens, while the West’s lack of action in Syria (out of
deference to its failings in Iraq) has permitted a regrouping of
Islamist forces and the opening of a second front against Christians.
The lesson is: “either leave other countries alone or, if you must
intervene, do so with consistency and resilience”. The consequences of
going in, messing things up and then quitting with a weary shrug are
terrible for those left behind.
Yet, having been so intimately involved in the collapse of Iraq, the
West is now bizarrely silent about events in Mosul. The streets of
London fill with thousands marching against Israel’s military operation
in Gaza; the West rails mightily against the Russian separatists in
Ukraine. But of Iraq there is nothing. Why?
