There are many ways in which you can stand for truth about jihad and be advocates for our persecuted brothers and sisters around the world. I will provide some action items in another post. Right now the critical issue is the Countering Violent Extremism Summit taking place at the White House.
A twitter rally is planned for tomorrow to raise questions about this summit:
- In light of the White House’s refusal to use the word “Islamic” to describe the “extremism” that is taking place, let alone to ever use the word “Islamic” in connection with the ISLAMIC STATE;
- and in light of the fact that the U.S. State Department thinks that we cannot solve the afore-mentioned problem of “violent extremism” by killing “violent extremists,” only by providing jobs (and presumably healthcare) for them;
- and in light of the fact that the Islamic State has just burned to death 45 more people in Iraq, after beheading 21 Egyptian Christians in Libya;
- and in light of the fact that the Countering Violent Extremism Summit is being attended by a disturbing number of Islamists;
- and in light of the fact that President Obama is holding up as examples of “best practices”in countering “domestic terrorism” cities that are rife with Islamist activity and known terrorists.
You can help declare that we do not want to “counter violent extremism” we want to #DefeatJihad, tomorrow, Wednesday, February 18, as part of the Twitter Rally to shed light on the Countering Violent Extremism Summit taking place this week at the White House. You can also share these messages on Facebook.
The Center for Security Policy has a very important post “Islamist Infiltrators at Countering Violent Extremism Summit.” It includes a less than 2 minute video.
We will begin tweeting at 10AM Eastern Time, and continue until at least 4PM.
Look for these hashtags: #CVE #CVESummit #JobsforISIS #ISISJobs #DefeatJihad
Our response to #CVE: #CVD (Countering Violent Deception)
Also trying to trend #WhatCVEmeans to give mocking alternatives to the acronymn such as:
“Completely Vacant Expressions”
You can see samples of tweets being used if you enter those hashtags in the Twitter Search.
Please join us tomorrow.
In Part 1 of this series on “Countering Jihad,” we talked about the need for immediate action to stop the genocide of Christians, Yezidis and other religious and ethnic minorities in Iraq. The new Christian human rights group, 21st Century Wilberforce Initiative released a report on the situation of these beleaguered groups from its recent trip to Iraq and offers 6 important policy recommendations.
In Part 2 we looked at who is competing most successfully against the Islamic State in the war of ideas: Christians from a Muslim background who fearlessly are speaking the truth. They have the street cred because they have been there. We looked at a message to President Obama from Brother Rachid, a former Muslim from Morocco.
