Allen West calls out church leaders “When will you take a stance against ISIS with your congregations?”

by Allen West

“Why does it seem the official policy of the Obama administration — as well as Islamapologists — is to dismiss any aspect of religion being a part of the ISIS equation? Even the White House statement after the horrific beheading of twenty-one Egyptian Christian men referred to them only as “citizens” and “victims.”

However, it didn’t take the administration very long to speak out against the killing of three Muslim college students in North Carolina as being inspired by religion — something local law enforcement has not stated.”

Why does it seem we are so recalcitrant to see this enemy in the terms they use – and accept their reality? When the Coptic Christian men were beheaded, the ISIS savages made reference to “people of the cross” and spoke of Rome.

Some say we shouldn’t refer to this as being rooted in religion because that will inflame the situation — just as we hear that GITMO is a major recruiting tool (and those orange jumpsuits used in ISIS videos are intentional).

So, I’m struggling to understand how, if the enemy firmly declares this is about killing Christians i.e. “We will conquer your Rome, break your crosses, and enslave your women” our words could “inflame” the situation even more?

It seems to me the only ones running around speaking of the Crusades are the Islamic terrorists — and, well, our own president. I find it perplexing how we in the West struggle not to confront this enemy while finding every excuse for why we shouldn’t.


Pastors, reverends, ministers, when will you take a stance and from the pulpit explain to your congregations what is happening? When will you be as God spoke to Joshua, “strong and of good courage, for the Lord your God shall not leave you nor forsake you?” Those twenty-one Christian men cried out to Jesus. The least we can do is honor their martyred sacrifice and let the Christian community in America realize this threat. When will we see a dedicated Sunday when our Christian leaders band together and educate their congregants?Reverend Franklin Graham and the Pope have both spoken out, but the leaders in our local communities must join the chorus.

I can almost bet there are some people going to church who have no idea who or what ISIS is. If ISIS can somehow rally sick individuals to its cause, who is rallying for our cause?

Somewhere the spirit of Charles Martel has to be found — he was called “The Hammer” for a reason. And folks, I am concerned about our debt, deficit, unemployment, economic growth, better education opportunities, illegal immigration, unconstitutional actions…but we can rectify all of that. However, it will mean nothing if we don’t defeat this evident scourge — Islamo-fascism, jihadism, and terrorism.
