Evangelist Franklin Graham has been a vocal critic of Islam over the years, but he has also been philanthropic towards Muslims of many different nationalities.
His organization, Samaritan’s Purse, “has been bringing assistance to Syrian refugees in Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey and Iraq.” In addition to Samaritans Purse’s efforts in the Middle East, the organization has been fighting homelessness in Haiti, AIDS epidemics in Africa, Ebola outbreaks in East Africa and dozens of other problems throughout the world. So when Graham speaks, many may listen.
Funny how all the policies of non-muslim Obama facilitate extermination of christians and jews: http://t.co/he8I1rjhsW

On his Facebook page, Graham accuses the world of being silent about the ongoing genocide of Muslims against Christians.
It is genocide—and the world seems largely silent about it. Genocide perpetrated by the Islamic State against Christians, Yazidis, and other religious minorities of Syria and Iraq. And their methods are unimaginably cruel and heinous. Just a few days ago it was revealed that three Assyrian Christians were executed on September 23, which is the Muslim “Feast of Sacrifice,” and they say they’ll kill more hostages. And recent reports share the horror of 12 other Christians being murdered on August 28. Why were they killed? For refusing to renounce their faith in Jesus Christ. Eyewitnesses said that ISIS militants crucified a 12-year-old Christian boy and his Syrian missionary father along with two other men after mercilessly brutalizing them. They cut off the boy’s fingertips to try to get his father to convert to Islam. They left their bodies hanging on the crosses for two days under signs reading “infidels.” On that same day, ISIS militants publicly raped two Christian women in front of a crowd and then beheaded them along with six others when they refused to convert to Islam. “They have every intention of spreading that bloodshed around the world, including America,” Fox News reported. Pray for an end to this horrendous evil in the name of religion.
The world, in Graham’s opinion, is doing nothing about it either. But some are taking action…against Graham for speaking out against Islam. Graham was dis-invited from the National Day of Prayer at the Pentagon, reportedly for his comments criticizing Islam for calling itself a religion of peace, all the while treating women as inferior. As a result of Graham’s criticisms of President Obama and Islam, Graham was also labeled as “paranoid” and “intolerant” by Jonathan Merritt of Atlantic Monthly. Merritt concluded his criticism of Graham by saying that, “Instead of being remembered for decades of humanitarian work through Samaritan’s Purse, he seems more likely to be remembered as a soldier in the 21st-century culture war.”

The culture war that Graham seems to be fighting these days is a culture that he is accusing of being blind to the facts and ignorant of the gruesome acts of genocide perpetrated upon Christians and people of all faiths other than Islam.
Thomas Williams, writer for Brietbart, stands with Graham by saying, “If such a denunciation qualifies as ‘intolerance,’ it is a badge to be worn with pride.”
Do you stand with Franklin Graham in denouncing the genocide that followers of Islam are perpetrating on Christians and other people of faith?
