The persecution of Christians by the Islamic State (ISIS) and other groups is escalating in the Middle East — while media coverage of it fades, Johnnie Moore, author of "Defying ISIS: Preserving Christianity in the Place of Its Birth and in Your Own Backyard," tells Newsmax TV.

"The fact is that the media is talking less about it, but it doesn't mean it's happening less," Moore said Monday to J.D. Hayworth on "Newsmax Prime."

"I feel like I'm a broken record, I've been screaming about this for a year-and-a-half — the fact is that the world is still sleeping while a Christian genocide rages on."

In the latest horror, ISIS militants reportedly cut off the fingertips of a 12-year-old boy as his Christian pastor father watched and was told the torture would stop if the father renounced Christianity and returned to Islam, the Christian Aid Mission said.

Moore said he is not optimistic about stopping the slaughter of Christians anytime soon.

"I just have one agenda. I want the United States of America to take care of the most vulnerable people in the region, which are the Christians … [who are] are facing the threat of total annihilation," Moore said.

"I want President Obama to start taking Christians into the United States of America … If I were in the Oval Office, I would be pleading with Barack Obama to please take this threat seriously, to actually do something.

"But the fact is I'm a big pessimistic. I don't think we can actually fix the region."
