Brigitte Gabriel is a fighter. She’s also a journalist, author, and activist who has been fighting tirelessly against the threat presented by radical Islam. As Western Journalism has reported, Gabriel has long warned of the terrorism carried out by Muslim extremists, including the bloodthirsty militants of Hamas who, she claims, use Palestinian citizens as human shields in their attacks on Israel.
She also founded the organization ACT For America, whose website describes its mission as “the nation’s largest non-profit, non-partisan, grassroots organization devoted to promoting national security and defeating terrorism.”
Now 50 years old, Brigitte Gabriel often tells of her early life in Lebanon, where she was born the first child of a Maronite Christian couple. “She recalls that during the Lebanese Civil War, Islamic militants launched an assault on a Lebanese military base near her family’s house and destroyed her home. Gabriel, who was ten years old at the time, was injured by shrapnel in the attack.”
For years, Gabriel traveled throughout the United States as well as overseas, sounding the alarm about the perils posed by radical Islamists intent on converting or killing Christians in the drive to create a Muslim caliphate. She often appears on TV and radio countering the claims of apologists who content that Islam is a “religion of peace.”
On her Facebook page, Gabriel has noted, “The most persecuted and victimized people in the world today are Christians in the Middle East. The perpetrators of the widespread destruction of that region’s Christian community? Islamists.”
Only hours ago, on Facebook, Brigitte Gabriel posted a remarkable picture that she says was taken during a trip “down under.” It’s a one-in-a-lifetime photo that shows the cross-generational bonds between two people who have fought against the unspeakable brutality of those who would kill them and destroy their people.
The share text that Brigitte posted on Facebook to accompany the photos reads:
While I was in Australia last month I had the honor of meeting a 92-year-old Holocaust survivor from the Auschwitz concentration camp. He showed me the numbers tattooed on his arms and I showed him the scar from the shrapnel that nearly killed me that night in Marjayoun when my home was bombed.
Generations apart, our enemies had the same goal of implementing their ideologies and killing those who did not subscribe to the same beliefs. This Holocaust Memorial Day, I say NEVER AGAIN. Won’t you stand with me?
