The Shame of Sri Lanka and the West

by Christopher W. Holton

The West is in trouble. The entirety of the political class of Western civilization is in complete denial. And the leader of the Free World, America, is largely to blame.
There was a horrific attack overnight on our Christian brothers and sisters as they celebrated the resurrection of Jesus Christ. And today on the Sunday news shows, all the talking heads can talk about is the old-news Mueller probe and the Russian collusion hoax, the same story they’ve been forcing on viewers for 2 long years. And that includes Fox News.

The fact is, because the attack on Christians occurred in a country made up of brown people, the US news media just doesn’t care.

For years Boko Haram made blowing up Christian churches in Nigeria on Easter Sunday, Palm Sunday and Christmas a national sport. Al Shabaab carried out similar attacks in Kenya. The West barely took notice. We managed to at least mention some attacks here on TTB:

Several years ago, Al Qaeda leader Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri made an announcement that Al Qaeda was turning east and forming Al Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent. Overnight we saw the results of their work. We may not view 207 dead and 475 wounded Sri Lankans as any big deal (shame on us), but I can assure you, our enemies see it as a big deal.
The problem in that for us is that, by their own doctrine, which I have studied ad nauseam for 15 years, success will–MUST– embolden them.

Maybe the West can get lucky and the Jihadis will only keep killing Christians halfway around the globe…it seems too many of us are content with that.
