The liberal press and State Department turned a blind eye to the slaughter of over 60 Christians, celebrating the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Josh Earnest, spokesperson for the Whitehouse spoke briefly about the attack, and quickly made it known that “Some Muslims were killed too.”
Taliban Slaughter 70, Injure Hundreds in Pakistan EASTER Bombing Targeting Christians, Obama Admin Laments Victims Who Were Muslims
The Blaze: White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said at a press briefing Monday that the administration “condemns” the Easter suicide bombing that devastated Lahore, Pakistan, killing dozens at a children’s park
Earnest calling the attack “grotesque,” noting that the assailants were “targeting religious minorities and children.”
An initial statement released by the State Department on Sunday noticeably neglected to mention the fact that Christians were specifically targeted in the attack for which the Pakistani Taliban later claimed responsibility.
Though Earnest did acknowledge that Christians celebrating Easter were the intended targets of the bombing, he stressed that “the majority of the victims were actually Muslims.”
He then proceeded to discuss the larger effort to combat terrorism in general. Earnest asserted that counterterrorism is a worldwide effort and that “peace-loving people of all faiths” need to come together to combat extremism “around the globe.”
National security, Earnest said, will continue to depend on the efforts of neighboring countries to combat “atrocious acts of terrorism” like those seen in Brussels last week, and most recently in Lahore.
Earnest said the U.S. and Pakistan have “an important counterterrorism relationship” and assured that if the country requires American assistance, it will be provided.
Easter celebrations at a recreational park in Lahore took a bloody turn after a suicide bomber blew himself up, killing 70 and injuring more than 300 people.
In the wake of the jihad massacre targeting women and children on Easter Sunday in Lahore, the Obama administration wants you to know that Muslims were killed in that attack.
As for the the Christians targeted and murdered, nothing to see here.
But Muslims were caught in the cross-hairs, so Obama springs into action.
The attack was conducted by a Taliban splinter group — and Obama has repeatedly said (even as late as this week) that the Taliban is not our enemy. Clearly, though, he is.

One Detail Was Noticeably Missing From State Department Statement on Pakistan Taliban Attack
When the U.S. Department of State released a statement condemning the Pakistani Taliban faction’s Easter bombing in a Lahore park, it noticeably omitted the fact that Easter-celebrating Christians were specifically targeted.
The bombing’s death toll climbed to 60 people, with 300 others that were reported as wounded. The explosion, which appeared to be a suicide bombing, struck an area that was crowded with Christians who were celebrating Easter. A splinter group of the Pakistani Taliban has since claimed full responsibility for the bombing, which it claimed was specifically targeting Christians who were celebrating the Easter holiday weekend, according to the Los Angeles Times.
“The United States condemns in the strongest terms today’s appalling terrorist attacks in Lehore, Pakistan,” the statement read. “This cowardly act, which targeted innocent civilians in the Gulshan-e-Iqbal Park, has killed dozens and left scored injured. The United States stands with the people and government of Pakistan at this difficult hour. We send our deepest condolences to the loved ones of those killed and injured, and our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Lahore as they respond to and recover from this terrible tragedy.”
The U.S. State Department’s statement also declared its continued resolve to increase its efforts in defeating terrorism.
“Attacks like these only deepen our shared resolve to defeat terrorism around the world, and we will continue to work with our partners in Pakistan and across the region to combat the threat of terrorism,” the statement concluded. – souce
Could it be any more clear to us as Christians, that the “Ethnic cleansing” of the Middle East, is ignored by the leftist press and by our White House? Brothers and sisters in Christ, this is coming to America in the near future.
Brethren, take solace in knowing this:
“That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:10-11).
