Powers: ‘If Christians Threw 12 Muslims to Their Deaths Would Obama Have Been So Disinterested?’

Powers: ‘If Christians Threw 12 Muslims to Their Deaths Would Obama Have Been So Disinterested?’Last week, many were dismayed by the news that twelve Christians had been drowned to death in the Mediterranean Sea during an attempt to migrate to Italy.

The Muslim immigrants accused of the drowning were charged by Italian police with “multiple aggravated murder motivated by religious hate.”

In a recent press conference, while standing next to President Obama, Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi spoke on the tragedy that befall his waters, insisting that religious differences were not at play.

The Washington Times reports:

“The problem is not a problem of clash of religions,” Mr. Renzi said through an interpreter. “It’s a problem of human dignity.”

President Obama remained silent on the matter as Renzi fielded questions.

This silence spoke volumes to Kirsten Powers, a Fox News Contributor and former Press Secretary to Andrew Cuomo. She responded with a passionate message to Obama in a USA Today piece. It read, in part:

As Renzi was questioned about the incident, Obama was mute on the killings. He failed to interject any sense of outrage or even tepid concern for the targeting of Christians for their faith. If a Christian mob on a ship bound for Italy threw 12 Muslims to their death for praying to Allah, does anyone think the president would have been so disinterested?

When three North Carolina Muslims were gunned down by a virulent atheist, Obama rightly spoke out against the horrifying killings. But he just can’t seem to find any passion for the mass persecution of Middle Eastern Christians or the eradication of Christianity from its birthplace.

Many on Twitter praised Powers’ words and compassion:
