Judge Jeanine Pirro: Christians are under attack in the ‘cradle of Christianity’ — and in America

Judge Jeanine Pirro used her mid-Christmas season “Opening Statement” on Saturday to introduce a special report on one aspect of the Islamist war in the Middle East that’s getting consistently downplayed in the Western media:

Christians under attack by Islamist killers.

“Why do we stand by and watch the genocide of Christians in the Middle East?” Pirro asked.

She noted that world leaders, from President Obama to Pope Francis, seem to be turning a blind eye to the destruction of an entire culture.

While Pirro accuses the pope of spending more time in public pontificating about the plight of Central American children who’ve entered the United States illegally than the Christians being brutalized by Muslim extremists, she reserves a special scorn for the sometimes craven America official response to Islamist provocations.

A country founded on the freedom of religion, she said, has a responsibility to live up to its beliefs – a responsibility the current administration is failing to fulfill.

“Our First Amendment free speech and freedom of religion is taking a back seat to an insane and brutal political correctness,” she said.

That includes the Obama administration calling murderous attacks like the Fort Hood shooting in 2009, or an Islamist extremist’s beheading of a co-worker this year, “workplace violence” as opposed to the religious terrorism it clearly is, Pirro said.

“This is jihad,” she said.

“The belief that we in the United States are immune to this violence, or protected from jihadists, is simply naïve.”
