Outcry about Christians being wiped out in Iraq and Syria.  I have prayed asking God for ways to protect them, particularly the children.  I have even wondered if the long history of persecution of Christians might ever reach me, and what would I do?

Outcry about Israeli children killed by Hamas missiles.  Jews have experienced persecution and genocide over and over again throughout history.   Israelis feel threatened by the bombs and rhetoric of Hamas, especially when innocent Israeli children are killed.  They don’t want to be victims any more.

What surprises me right now, though, is that in many places in the world it is Muslims who are being massacred.  I don’t hear any outcry about Muslims who are victimized.    Why the silence?
