    Take a look at my avatar – this is the symbol being spray painted on the houses of Christians akin to the Star of David in NAZI Germany.

They have to convert, or pay the Islamic tax, “jizya” and become “dhimmis”, or second class citizens, or die. Christians are being slaughtered, and Obama did nothing.
