Leadership Starts on Truth by Elizabeth Allen
January 27 was the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the major Auschwitz concentration camp, and sub-camps Monowitz and Birkenau. During the Third Reich’s reign of terror from 1934-1945, Jews and other ‘undesirables’ were imprisoned and killed to improve the ‘Aryan master race’ through ethnic cleansing. Before Adolf Hitler was defeated in 1945, over 23 million people had met their end, including 1.5 million children, and 6 million Jews. The slaughter is remembered as the Holocaust.
While other European leaders promoted appeasement policies with Hitler, Winston Churchill understood and acknowledged the reality of the threat of Nazism, not just to England, but the world. December 26, 1941, Churchill addressed both houses of Congress: “We can beat the life out of the savage Nazi.” Churchill’s leadership forged an alliance with the United States and Russia, which ultimately defeated Nazi Germany. He was relentless in destroying Nazism. Britain’s air strikes were devastating. He had no mercy in his fight against the greatest atrocity toward humanity until that time – genocide of a race because of religion.[adsanity id=8405 align=alignleft /]Today, we watch a new holocaust unfold. Violent militant Islamic groups, such as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, like Hitler’s Nazis, execute the innocent over their faith. They seek global domination (caliphate), an absolute intolerance of other religions. All who won’t bend to their will are persecuted. A Twitter post swore a Holocaust against all Jews: “The real Zionist Holocaust is predicted in the Hadiths! The resurrection will not take place until Muslims fight Jews, and Muslims kill them, and the tree will say: Oh Muslim, servant of God, there is a Jew behind me, kill him!” Christian genocide worsens every day as Christian men, women and children, (infidels), are tortured, crucified, beheaded because they refuse to give up their God for Allah. Mothers and daughters raped and killed and fathers hung. A 4 year old girl in Mosul, Iraq, beheaded because she would not give up Jesus. One poor soul, forced to say the Shahada: “There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his Prophet,” was beheaded anyway.
In the words of retired Lt. Col. Ralph Peters, “When America is strong, the world complains. When America is weak, the world suffers.” We are seeing the results of what happens when America does not lead – the world devolves and unspeakable evils fill the void. Yet, this president refuses to recognize it and wants nothing more than to avoid destroying Islamic terrorism. In place of negotiating a Status of Forces Agreement with Iraq, he created an opportunity for ISIS in Iraq. He’s soft on taking action against Iran’s nuclear weapons program, central to continuing expansion of terrorism. Instead, this president rather continue his fundamental transformation of America, or take time for an interview with u-tube personality, Glozell Greene, who sits in a bathtub with Fruit Loops and milk.
Obama’s disdain of Churchill was unmistakable when he returned a bust of Churchill, a gift from England after 9-11, to the British government. Obama doesn’t have to worry about being compared to Churchill. Leadership depends on truthfulness. Both are embarrassingly missing from this president and America is perceived as weak. Meanwhile, the enemy slaughters.[adsanity id=11817 align=alignleft /]
