The War On Christians In The Muslim World

Avram sent us this link to an excellent article by Ayaan Hirsi Ali.

From one end of the muslim world to the other, Christians are being murdered for their faith.

We hear so often about Muslims as victims of abuse in the West and combatants in the Arab Spring’s fight against tyranny. But, in fact, a wholly different kind of war is underway—an unrecognized battle costing thousands of lives. Christians are being killed in the Islamic world because of their religion. It is a rising genocide that ought to provoke global alarm.

The portrayal of Muslims as victims or heroes is at best partially accurate. In recent years the violent oppression of Christian minorities has become the norm in Muslim-majority nations stretching from West Africa and the Middle East to South Asia and Oceania. In some countries it is governments and their agents that have burned churches and imprisoned parishioners. In others, rebel groups and vigilantes have taken matters into their own hands, murdering Christians and driving them from regions where their roots go back centuries.

The media’s reticence on the subject no doubt has several sources. One may be fear of provoking additional violence. Another is most likely the influence of lobbying groups such as the Organization of Islamic Cooperation—a kind of United Nations of Islam centered in Saudi Arabia—and the Council on American-Islamic Relations. Over the past decade, these and similar groups have been remarkably successful in persuading leading public figures and journalists in the West to think of each and every example of perceived anti-Muslim discrimination as an expression of a systematic and sinister derangement called “Islamophobia”—a term that is meant to elicit the same moral disapproval as xenophobia or homophobia.

But a fair-minded assessment of recent events and trends leads to the conclusion that the scale and severity of Islamophobia pales in comparison with the bloody Christophobia currently coursing through Muslim-majority nations from one end of the globe to the other. The conspiracy of silence surrounding this violent expression of religious intolerance has to stop. Nothing less than the fate of Christianity—and ultimately of all religious minorities—in the Islamic world is at stake. Continue reading.

    Christians reacting to moslem violence should not be equated with molsems being intolerant of the existence of Christians. As far as the media and the UN are concerned… kill a Christian… it’s their own fault. Insult a moslem…hate crime.

  2. Those who can’t handle the truth,
    try to silence those who speak it.

    As I believ I’ve said before, new post, old information. In both the military and civilian side of the government intel business we followed Islamic violence against Christians around the world for decades. The Muslims never hid it; quite to the contrary, they wanted it broadcast far and wide to let the world’s Christians know that they were unwelcome in Muslim lands and that they were coming for them in other places as well. The daily translations of foreign pres sreleases were rife with instances of killings of Christians, burining of churches and homes of Christians, and assualts on Christians of all ages by Muslims in Egypt, Indonesiaa, the Phillipines, Africa and the Mideastern countries. After 2001 we started to get increasing reports of these happenings in Europe too. Your government huffs and puffs when it’s confronted by particularly egregious cases that it can’t sweep under the rug, but aside from some steamy displays of righteous indignation it doies nothing substantial. When is the last time you saw the Administration or State move to impose sanctions on any country for their otherwise illegal tratement of Christian?

    (Insert commercial here:) You see the govenment of our ‘One Nation Under God’ disallowing public religious dispalys, making even the mention of Creationism in schools a crime, forcing churches to provide medical procedures their doctrines forbid, in short, doing almost anything it can to destroy religion as a viable force in our culture. Paranoids could say that this government is in the earlier stages of attcking religion as the Islamic countries are except that instead of replacing other religions with Ilsma it’s trying to replace it with the cult of personality. We will worship designated politicians and their celebvrity catamites, much as so many do now but on a larger scale. Faith will be replaced by flesh and blood we’ll be taught to envy, worship and emulate. (Commercial ends)

    Your goverment hasn’t cared for decades about the fates of Chrsitians being martyred around the world, they are the acceptable collateral damage of international politics. Call me back when you see a US carrier battle group sailing into the harbor at Alexandria to protect Coptic Christians from the centuries of persecution and slaughter they’ve suffered at the hands of the Egyptian Muslims. Or any other harbor for that matter.

  4. Excellent post that deserves to be reiterated until the slaughter ends. Thanks Avram and Menagerie.

    BTW, wanna see your Congressperson and/or Senator cringe and do the 2-second sidestep? Pose the question in the next open townhall meeting to s/he about what the Congress is doing/going to do about Muslim governments sanctioning the killing of Christians.

    Informed rational freedom loving people have all the reasons in the world to fear islam. The twin fogs of political correctness & ignorance must be dispersed before western society better understands this menace. Even a brief review of islamic theology & history quickly exposes the deadly roots of this evil ideology.

    Mohamhead was a 7th century murdering warlord who rose to power on a river of blood surrounded by thugs and gangsters using intimidation, violence, deception and trickery to expand their criminal empire while mercilessly suppressing and killing their opponents and enriching themselves on stolen booty.

    The evil koran is a collection of sayings and speeches by this diabolical madman claiming divine guidance from some mythical sky-god which has inspired generations of crazed fanatics to abhorrent behavior resulting in historys worst ever crimes against humanity starting 1400 years ago and still continuing even today.

    Islam is just another fascist totalitarian ideology used by power hungry fanatics on yet another quest for worldwide domination and includes all the usual human rights abuses & suppression of freedoms.

    and a snappy graphics version, great for emailing…
