Christian Leaders: Islamic Storm Coming against West

The Islamic State (ISIS) has been a threat to the entire Middle East for some time, and recent reports indicate that the terrorist group is looking to extend its reach to Europe. Some Christian leaders are warning that its reach will soon extend even further, saying that a storm of Islamic persecution is coming against Christians in the West:

Franklin Graham, the founder of Samaritan’s Purse, wrote a message on Facebook after ISIS terrorists beheaded 21 Christian men in Libya.

Graham asks why there hasn’t been global condemnation from Muslim leaders.

“Can you imagine the outcry if 21 Muslims had been beheaded by Christians?” he wrote. …

“We’d better take this warning seriously as these acts of terror will only spread throughout Europe and the United States,” Graham wrote. “The storm is coming.”

Other Christian leaders are also speaking out, saying the world must stand up to repudiate the ISIS massacre and the terrorist targeting of Christians.

Dr. Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, is specifically calling out President Barack Obama to do more.

“We call upon the president of the United States of America and Congress to specifically address the persecution of Christians by ISIS, Islamic totalitarianism, and regimes in the Middle East, and call upon the United Nations to convene a summit on Christian persecution around the world,” Rodriguez stated in a press release.
