Here’s a bit of news the mainstream media won’t cover. Members with the National Black Church Initiative gathered outside the Qatar Embassy in Washington, D.C., to protest the country’s sponsorship of terror.
They chanted things like, “Stop killing Christians” and “Stop terror.”
Why won’t the mainstream media cover this event?
Simple: It doesn’t fit the leftist narrative — you know, the one that says Muslims are mostly peaceful and Islam is not tied to terror.
Qatar, meanwhile, has been providing some serious aidd to terror groups in recent times.
“Breitbart London Editor-in-Chief Raheem Kassam spoke during the protest, condemning Qatar as the “Club Med for terrorists.”
“The Qatari government has provided sanctuary to various members of jihadist organizations, namely the Taliban, al-Qaeda, Hamas, and the Muslim Brotherhood, allowing some of them to establish official offices on its territory.
“Various Muslim countries and the United States have also affiliated Qatar with Shiite state sponsor of terrorism Iran.
“According to the CIA World Factbook, nearly 14 percent of the Qatari population is Christian, about 68 percent Muslim, almost 3 percent Buddhist, and the rest Jewish, other, or unaffiliated.
“The demonstrators blasted Qatar for persecuting the Christian minority in the country.
“Rev. Anthony Evans, the president of NBCI, spoke against religious intolerance in Qatar and demanded that the country stop mistreating Christians.
“‘I’m here standing in front of the embassy of Qatar to send a very clear message that what they’re doing to promote religious intolerance is wrong,’ he declared. ‘What they’re doing to persecute Christians is wrong. And that we in the Black church who have a history of being persecuted [ourselves] will not stand for any persecution of any Christians, or any Muslims, or any Jews or anyone else.’
“‘We will not tolerate any abuse from any government in the Middle East concerning Christians. We will not even tolerate any abuse of anyone, whether they’re Muslim or Jews, anywhere,’ he also said, later adding. ‘We will stand against it, we will protest against it, that’s why we’re here. We are not afraid… We will not be silent as our brothers and sisters are persecuted in the Middle East.'”
