Last Friday, CBN's The Brody File conducted an interview with President Trump in the White House's Blue Room. Below is a very significant clip lasting less than a minute, but what is being said must sound like music to the real victims in the Syrian conflict, the Christians.

This is of course not to say that there aren't real muslim victims too - there may even be between 15 and 20 per cent among the masses flooding Europe. But ultimately, it's they themselves bear the responsibility for their own misfortune, because islam is a cancer and as long as it is present in this world, muslims will be warring and cause widespread misery, sorrow and backwardness wherever they roam - first and foremost among themselves. Blame it on badly drawn borders post WWI if you want, or Israel, or dictators, or scarce water resources, or climate change for all I care, but ultimately there is one, and only one, reason for the neverending war in the ME: islam itself. It's an axiom.

It is therefore good and just that President Trump does what even the Pope cannot bring himself to: identify the plight of Middle Eastern Christians and offering them a perspective for a better life.

The interview can be seen in its entirety tomorrow Sunday at 11pm on Freeform (cable TV, formerly ABC Family Channel) during a special CBN News show.

"DAVID BRODY: “Persecuted Christians, we’ve talked about this, the refugees overseas. The refugee program, or the refugee changes you’re looking to make. As it relates to persecuted Christians, do you see them as kind of a priority here?”


DAVID BRODY: “You do?”

PRESIDENT TRUMP: “They’ve been horribly treated. Do you know if you were a Christian in Syria it was impossible, at least very tough to get into the United States? If you were a Muslim you could come in, but if you were a Christian, it was almost impossible and the reason that was so unfair, everybody was persecuted in all fairness, but they were chopping off the heads of everybody but more so the Christians. And I thought it was very, very unfair. So we are going to help them.”

I assume these are no hollow words. I think it is safe to say that of this moment, government officials are preparing the technical, logistical and legal details for letting Christian refugees in. Let's hope that the measure also extends to non-muslim groups like Bahia, Yazidis, Zoroastrians etc.
