Through the years, indeed, through the centuries, Christians have been killed, meeting homes have been destroyed, believers have been harried and forced to flee for their lives in countries such as Iran, Iraq, Egypt and Indonesia. It is occurring to this day, yet the major media ignore news of those events or relegate such “old news” to the back pages.

But, let a journalist be executed in a cruel, gruesome, atrocious way on television and the Western World becomes outraged.

The ISIS/ISIL know how to use theater. Suddenly, a majority of the American people want to go back to war against militant Islamists.

What irony.
