CHRISTIAN PERSECUTION IN THE ISLAMIC WORLD

“Open Doors” is an organization which tracks Christian persecution on a global scale.  They list the top fifty nations who are most notorious for anti-Christian activities and/or sentiments:

INDEX OF COUNTRIES IN WHICH IT IS MOST DIFFICULT TO BE A CHRISTIAN

2014 WORLD WATCH LIST: COUNTRY PROFILES

 

Muslim majority countries dominate in eighteen of the top twenty that persecute Christians. (38 of the top 50) That’s seriously counter to the public comments Barack Obama has imparted about the subject:

     “Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance.”  (really? public beheadings, hangings, mass murder and church burnings is tolerance?)

     “…the Islamic faith which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world – including my own country.” (Hmm, what country is that?)

     “Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism, it is an important problem in promoting peace.”  (???)

     “Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality.”  (huh?)

Who is he trying to snow? More curiously, what is the purpose of extolling such distortions?

There are many more examples of comments (see link below), but these four serve the purpose in exposing, not only the idiocy and the untruths, but the sheer audacity in attempting to sway the mindset of people from fact to falsehoods, all in the interest of loving Islam. This…from our alleged “Christian” president.

Meanwhile, our “Christian” president remains mute about the atrocities toward Christians at the behest of Islam around the world.  For openers:

  • As this is written, the new Iraqi caliphate which recently terrorized and conquered the northern part of that country, has issued a fatwa to the existing Christians in and near Mosel; Convert, Pay a Special Tax, leave Iraq now or be prepared to die. That, by the way, is consistent with Quranic verses 9.5, 5.51 and 2.191.
  • Since Iraq has been “liberated” by American military operations, Christianity has been on the run. (Saddam Hussein protected Christians). Between 2003 and 2011, more than 60 churches have been targeted for bombings, thousands of Christians were murdered or displaced.
  • In Mali, a Christian leader is beheaded as hundreds flee. Systematic killings and displacements of Christians have become commonplace.
  • Nigeria: More than a thousand Christians were killed in 2012 for nothing other than being Christian. Since January this year, at least four Christian churches have been burned.
  • Somalia:  There are few Christians remaining in Somalia since the crackdowns over the last several years.  Still, the few who remain are facing persecution and/or death. In March of this year, a mother and her cousin were beheaded in the center of town for all villagers to watch, to see what happens when Christians refuse to convert.
  • Afghanistan:  Christians are warned to convert to Islam or be killed. Beheadings of Christians have taken place in public places to warn non-Muslims of their fate.
  • Saudi Arabia: Conversion from Islam to Christianity is punishable by death. Christians who live and work in Saudi Arabia from foreign countries must conduct their worship within the confines of their house or in embassies. Carrying a Bible in public is illegal.
  • Egypt: During the Muslim Brotherhood uprisings of 2011-2012 (known as Arab Spring) Egypt lost nearly sixty churches to fires and desecrations while Christian Coptics ran for their lives, many of whom sought refuge outside the country. Bear in mind, the Muslim Brotherhood and the Morsi regime was supported by the Obama administration. Under President Mubarak, Christians had enjoyed full protections of the law. ((So did Jews)

We get the picture. The more that Muslims dominate in these nations, the less tolerance there is of any other religion.  (Notice, there are no Jews allowed in the most extreme of these Islamic countries) Christians are under severe tyranny in these, and several other nations, while the world sits on their hands. The UN is impotent. And the leader of the free world, our president of the United States who says he’s a Christian, looks the other way. Not a peep.

Maybe he’s waiting to learn about it on the news. Maybe those fund raisers, golf games and vacations are just too important to pay heed to the world of INTOLERANCE by the religion that supposedly has such a great history of tolerance.

You don’t hear much about this in the news, so I thought it appropriate to provide the update. And by the way, I am not a Christian.

    Seems to me that I saw some of these countries on the list you recently published that we’re receiving large sums of money from US. US meaning the Unitied States which a lot of liberals have forgotten.

    Islam is as tolerant as a Pit Bull dog brought up to fight, that has been starved, and was put in a pen of chickens covered with blood.

    I hope that Israel does not stop their fight against Hamas. Those mad dogs have been tossing bombs and rockets into Israel for years, and like all rats, need to be exterminated.

    Great piece Marshall and so timely, thanks for your effort. My bucket list is a lot shorter now!

    Why are we still sending “humanitarian aid” to Gaza, when all they do is use the money to buy rockets from North Korea and Iran? Israel already lets food, medical supplies and other goods into Gaza, and they do not want to reoccupy it. I am so tired of hearing that everything is Israel’s fault. The Muslims are vicious animals who won’t take care of their own people, but want to kill everyone who disagrees with them. You might as well add France and UK to your list, the way things are going there.

    Marshall, thanks for writing the truth. But the majority of the people in our pathetically sick world do not want to hear the truth. Terror and atrocities will continue to get worse. The Muslims will continue to take over the world, and leaders like Barack Hussein Obama will continue to support, encourage, and approve, wholeheartedly, islamic savagery. I worry what this world will be like, in just a few years, for my children and grandchildren.

    Of course, you and I have talked about this before. What befuddles me is that I kept waiting and watching to see what would be written about the persecution of Christians and when these articles would appear in newspapers and magazines and books, wherever. They never showed up!

    I saw myself how the Christians were treated under Saddam Hussein.(he was irreligious). They had churches, monasteries –I stayed overnight in a Chaldean Monastery which was like a weekend retreat for its parishenors. The roads to these places, when they were out in the country, were well maintained and, as far as I could ascertain, no overt moves were made to convert these people. Now, they are being killed by the people of the new caliphate. Why aren’t “moderate” Muslims complaining?

    In Saudi Arabia, of course, no other religion, other than Islam, is tolerated–and not all forms. The Shi’as, who live in the Eastern Province, are closely watched and many facets of their schismatic form of Islam, so deemed by the Saudis, are not allowed to be practiced in that country. Christians are not allowed to bring in bibles or crucifixes nor may they wear crosses around their necks, let alone have any religious services. Nonetheless, clandestine religious services are held and, in some places (like ARAMCO), it is an open secret. When Filipino workmen, unimportant people in the government’s estimation,are found having religious services in their apartments, they are fired and thrown out of the country.

    Current stories of persecution and death are legion. Look what has happened to the Copts in Egypt. Why are not churches in the US bellowing about this.? I know of some Chaldean churches in South Jersey and I just might take a trip down there and see what they have to say. There is a Coptic Church on Guava Avenue in Eau Gallie. Why not spend a Sunday morning there?

    I am in the best place possible; none of my Christian friends will go to war World Wide we are over 8 million. We are looking forward to Armeggedon the End to False Religion will soon take place, this is Gods war. http://www.JW.org

    Certainly appears that the “Good Book” prophecies are on real-time present day display and we are being lead to the slaughter by “One of the Great False Prophets” predicted.
    Arm yourself with the “SWORD” and stand firm in the Faith.

    This is so true and I can not understand why the civilized world, especially the Christians do not do anything about it. It seems that the only one that is actively engaged against the bigoted muslims are Israel.. Although they do it for their own survival, the result will benefit everyone

  10. lou fischer July 29, 2014 at 12:58 pm #

    Why won’t someone (aka =media) confront Obama about untruths he puts out? He speaks with such a confident manner when lying. I have been hearing for several months about how Christian persecution has become the most prevalent in the history of the world.

    If someone asked me to come up with a list of 50 countries that qualify as the top 50 “dunghills of the world,” it would be hard to find a more complete list than the one at the beginning of this article. As mentioned in the article, 38 of these 50 countries (76%) are Muslim-dominated. It figures.

    Would you please explain your personal convictions, rather than referring us to a Jehovah’s Witness site.

    When you state that you are “looking forward to Armeggedon the End to False Religion will soon take place” are you speaking from the Christian aspect?

    And would very much appreciate which religion you consider to be false?

    Believe that you are making a sincere effort to all of us who subscribe to this site, but would very much appreciate it if you would take the time to express what you have to say in a way which we can understand more clearly.

    I HATE TO SAY IT, BUT THE GOOD OLE U.S.OF A. IS ONE DUMBASS COUNTRY. THE BRAIN DEAD IDIOTS IN THIS COUNTRY VOTED A MUSLIM INTO THE WHITEHOUSE TWICE AND HE’S SO DAMN STUPID HE CAN’T HIT HIMSELF ON THE ASS WITH A BOW FIDDLE. 47 MILLION BRAIN DEAD VOTERS VOTED HIM INTO OFFICE NOT KNOWING OR WANTING TO KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THE JERK. PRIME EXAMPLE, SHERRY SHEPARD, ON THE VIEW SAID, “I WANT TO VOTE FOR SOMEONE THAT LOOKS LIKE ME”. IF THAT ISN’T THE HEIGHT OF STUPIDITY NOTHING IS. BLACKS TRADITIONALLY VOTE 92 TO 94% DEMOCRATIC, MILLIONS OF FREE LOADERS WANTING MORE FREE STUFF, UNIONS SUPPORTING OBAMA BECAUSE THEY THINK HE’LL CLOSE ALL SHOPS AND IF YOU WANT TO WORK YOU’LL HAVE TO PAY A UNION. THESE GROUPS AND THEN MILLIONS OF LIBERALS WHO DON’T KNOW ANY BETTER. JUST A NATION OF SHEEP AND THE CONSERVATIVES WILL NEVER GAIN CONTROL AGAIN. MILLIONS OF REPUBLICANS ARE TOO DAMN LAZY AND UNCONCERNED TO GET OFF THEIR ASS AT VOTING TIME AND GO VOTE, BUT THEY WON’T HESITATE TO SIT AROUND AND COMPLAIN HOW BAD THINGS ARE. NANCY PELOSI, HARRY REED, ERIC HOLDER AND OUR MUSLIM LEADER CAN SHOVE MY PART OF AMERICA WHERE THE SUN DOESN’T SHINE. I FLAT GIVE UP. THE BEST THING THAT COULD HAPPEN TO AMERICA IS ONE WILD ASS REVOLUTION.

    Marshall,

    Another outstanding post, as usual. It’s hard to know where to begin. We have a Muslim president, with a wife who was disingenuous enough to make a statement about not being particularly proud of her country. The First Lady? Well, after attending Rev. Wright’s church (“God damn America”), none of this is surprising.

    I feel like I am beginning to stray from my point, however, none of what you posted is surprising. For many years, I have felt and said that I see nothing positive in the future of the U.S., and now I feel that may include the world. I agree with Bob James, that these countries are the “dunghills of the world,” and that’s putting it mildly and politely.

    As I read your post, I was reminded of film clips that I saw of the Palestinians dancing in the streets and passing out candy (as is apparently the custom in celebration) when 9/11 occurred. I guess we’ve forgotten that. But as Art Buchwald once said, “Americans have a ten day mentality.” Couple that with the mainstream liberal media, and that demonstration by the Palestinians seems to be forgotten and suppressed. Israel needs to crush these vermin, once and for all.

    For me personally, screw all of the Muslim countries. Has anybody forgotten that when we went to the aid of Indonesia after the Tsunami, they would not allow our Naval ships to dock, even though we were delivering aid? And then there were the pictures of Indonesians wearing bin Laden t-shirts. F— all of the Muslims. I used to be a member of the American Psychological Association, but after they gave $100,000 in aid to Indonesia, I quit. F— them too. Am I pissed? You bet. Excuse my profanity, to anyone who may be offended.

    Again Marshall, thank you for your wonderful posts. Hopefully, we all have some fight left in us, otherwise, we are doomed.

      Great message from the Snake Hunter. I’m not optimistic about the GOP uniting to do anything, but hope springs eternal!
