ICC Note: With Christians being persecuted throughout the Middle-East, many are wondering why such violence has little to no international media attention. Dr. Sebastian Gorka indicated that we may be witnessing the beginning of a Christian Holocaust. Dr. Gorka discusses the warped worldview that is now held throughout journalism and the mainstream media. Postmodern secularists believe that the need for God is a sign of a lack of sophistication. Thus the idea of persecution holds no weight in the West. This dangerous worldview has created an environment where millions of Christians are displaced, uprooted, or forced to convert for their faith with no support or awareness from the Western world.

07/20/2014 (Communities Digital News) – International media remain apathetic to Christian persecution in the Middle East.
Speaking on “Breitbart News Saturday” Dr. Sebastian Gorka addressed the subject after being asked by the host, Alex Marlow, why the press is not interested in the story.
Before Gorka gave his answer he called the situation “a Christian version of the Holocaust and nothing less.”
Gorka then went on to say that the West has done much to stand up for Muslims in the past two decades. “Whether it was to save the Muslims in Bosnia or the Albanians, Kosovars, and Muslims in Serbia, it is now time for a humanitarian operation to save the remaining Christians in Iraq,” he said. “It is time for the American people and our representatives to do something for our co-religionists remaining in the Middle East.”
Much of Gorka’s position is based upon the fact that Muslims are relative newcomers to the religious confrontations in the Middle East and around the world. Christianity existed at least 600 years before Muhammad’s first revelation inspired Islam, but today it is Christians and Jews who are the primary targets in the region.
Gorka went on to issue a scathing criticism against the press by asserting that “the mainstream media are warped in terms of their world view. So when it comes to the idea of religious persecution, they say, ‘Well who really cares because I don’t believe in God. If you are not sophisticated enough to be a post-modernist secularist… tough on you!’”
As Gorka, who is the National Security Editor for Breitbart, explains, it was the in-your-face victory laps the Obama administration took about the killing of Osama bin Laden and the president’s role in personally “destroying” al-Qaeda that gave rise to the formation of ISIS in Iraq and Syria.
Oddly enough, Raymond Ibrahim has a differing view that the evolution of ISIS, or the Islamic State as it is now called, may have some temporary benefits for non-Muslims in that region. That aspect of the story will be outlined in a separate article.
Jihadists recognize the media’s ideology that “a dark skin person always has to be the victim,” according to Garza. Islamic extremists use that knowledge heavily to their advantage to gain sympathy and to justify their violence.
