Nobody Cares, a nadie le importa

Niños sirios mueren congelados, caen bombas y ‘a nadie le importa’

La ofensiva del gobierno sirio a una provincia controlada por los rebeldes ha creado una de las peores emergencias humanitarias de una brutal guerra de nueve años. By Vivian Yee y Hwaida Saad 28 de febrero de 2020

En los últimos tres meses, casi un millón de sirios han huido hacia la frontera con Turquía. Muchos viven en campamentos improvisados o al aire libre.

I think of the Evangelicals who are keeping our President in power, being the real power behind the Senate of United States while doing so. Now what is an Evangelical? At the very least a follower of Christ, or as they say, without knowing what they’re saying, “born agains.” That is, born again into Christ, meaning Christ-like if nothing else..

Do these “born agains” even hear what Iman’s father, Ahmad Yassin Leila, a Syrian refugée, is saying: “I dream about being warm. I just want my children to feel warm. I don’t want to lose them to the cold. I don’t want anything except a house with windows that keeps out the cold and the wind.”

Now there are millions of refugées, homeless much like Almad, throughout our world, the world being much larger than our little world, the United States. And instead of opening their riches to those millions, giving them as is said ‘”the shirt off their backs,” the Evangelicals go on pretending to be followers of Christ, while in fact revealing themselves to be nothing more than followers of Donald Trump, caring mostly about building his wall and keeping the refugees, the asylum seekers out.

Cry the beloved country!
