In writing that the “Oklahoma City bombing, we recall, was conducted by an American, not a Muslim,” he is (perhaps inadvertently) saying that Muslims cannot be Americans.I rejoice to see that Archbishop Mouneer acknowledges “the right of the government to protect the nation from terrorism,” but regret his criticism of “the decision to prioritise the refugee applications of Christians in the Middle East.” Is he possibly unaware of the fact that thousands of fellow Christians have been brutalized and killed in the most savage manner by Muslims otherwise intent on killing each other? Surely the relative handful of Middle East Christians who remain deserve special treatment and it is bizarre to see the Archbishop saying otherwise.I wonder if he would change his tune if some colleague in Jerusalem had his head chopped off by a Muslim terrorist. Tony Oberdorfer says: February 16, 2017 at 8:01 am Religious discrimination is not the issue and to call the desire to save fellow Christians from death for being Christian “simply un-American” is just silly.
