ISIS is now forcing the approximately 3,000 Christians remaining in Mosul, a major city with thousands of years of Christian history, to choose between essentially the same options given to Jews in 1492: live under intolerable, impoverishing dhimmi status; convert to Islam; leave; or die.
BOOM. BOOM. BOOM-BOOM-BOOOOOMMMMM! Annoying, isn't it? But guess what -- that's what life will be like for marine mammals in the Atlantic Ocean now that the Obama administration has re-opened the East Coast, from Delaware to Florida, to offshore oil and gas exploration.
