The head of the Catholic League issued a scathing criticism at President Obama, posting on his group’s website an essay that pointed to all the Christians being beheaded by Muslim terrorists and asking: Doesn’t that matter to you?

“Christians are being beheaded all over the Middle East because they are Christians, and those carrying out this mass murder are doing so in the name of Islam,” Bill Donohue wrote on his group’s website, Newsmax reported. “Yet you continue to say and do absolutely nothing about these unspeakable crimes. Do Christians mean so little to you?”

Mr. Donohue also referenced Mr. Obama’s end-of-Eid al-Fitr celebration remarks — when the president and first lady Michelle Obama spoke of the “many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation” — as a face slap to Christians.

Most puzzling, he went on, Newsmax reported, was the fact that Mr. Obama spoke in this statement about the “common values” that unite those of all religious faiths.

“I can search in vain to find you condemning the genocidal slaughter of Christians by Muslims,” Mr. Donohue wrote. “Muslim terrorists are killing Jews in Israel, and their representatives have pledged to wipe Jews off the face of the earth. Yet your administration spends most of its time lecturing Israelis to be patient. About what? Being bombed because they are Jews? Do Jewish lives mean so little to you?”
