Christians Face Hatred and Death

Christians Targeted for Violence During Christmas Holiday: "As previously reported by the Law Enforcement Examiner, at least 52 Iraqi Christians were killed and over 60 injured in a terrorist inspired bloodbath at Baghdad's Our Lady of Deliverance Catholic Church. U.S. special forces troops, together with Iraqi security forces, launched a rescue operation to free as many of the Christians being held hostage by their terrorist captors as possible."

Muslim refugees, yes – Christian refugees, no: "Christians are in imminent danger across the world, and yet they are being refused refugee status, while Muslim refugee immigration goes on unimpeded. U.S. policy regarding refugee resettlement would shock most Americans if they only knew. The United Nations picks who gets to come to the U.S. as a refugee. The mandate of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is to determine which of the world's huddled masses comes to the U.S. as humanitarian refugees. And predictably, this U.N. body is favoring Muslims. Christians from Muslim lands are being refused refugee status....

      "... in their home countries, under the Shariah, Christians face persecution and many times certain death for their religious beliefs. At the same time, whole Muslim communities are entering the U.S. by the tens of thousands per month, despite the fact that in their home countries they face no religious persecution. ...the U.N. is driven largely by... the Organization of Islamic Cooperation.... It is a religious and political organization with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, an organization dedicated in its own words to 'eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within.'

     "It is horrifying but true that Afghan Christians are being refused refugee status by the U.N. and many Western nations, including Great Britain. ....Muslim communities....are supported by social services provided by the Office of Refugee Resettlement of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services....Muslim U.N. employees were 'discouraging' applications for resettlement from the desperate Christian Iraqis. The Christian Iraqi population has since been decimated."

Muslim Persecution of Christians: (Afghanistan:) "Ten years after the U.S. invaded and overthrew the Taliban—at a cost of more than 1,700 U.S. military lives and $440 billion in taxpayer dollars—the State Department revealed that Afghanistan’s last Christian church was destroyed. ...the Afghan government—installed by the U.S.—is partially responsible for such anti-Christian sentiments, for instance, by upholding apostasy laws, which make it a criminal offence for Muslims to convert to other religions.

      (Sudan:) "Soon after President Bashir 'confirmed plans to adopt an entirely Islamic constitution and strengthen sharia law,' 'emboldened' Muslims attacked Christians trying to construct a church, 'claiming that Christianity was no longer an accepted religion in the country.'”

Folks, of course we will never end Christian persecution. Persecution for "my name's sake" is what Jesus predicted.

But we don't have to support war after war in the Middle East that replaces moderate leaders with Islamists who waste no time in attacking their native Christian populations as soon as we "win" the wars for them.

The pattern is so clear it is amazing that not every Westerner has recognized it by now.

As the quote above shows, Iraq, the country supposedly under US control, has lost the better part of its Assyrian Christian population (these are people who speak the Aramaic that Jesus spoke) due to persecution.

So is it Obama's fault? He has not lifted a finger to help these downtrodden followers of Christ.

Yet it was during the Bush administration that Sweden acquired one of the largest Assyrian population, thanks to the total lack of protection for this group under US supervision. Ironically, Saddam was one of the best caretakers of Christians in the region. So was Ghadaffi. Mubarak was not a particularly anti-Christian leader and he was the one who provided the most valuable buffer between Israel and the West.

Now the question for you to ponder is: Is this why the West got rid of these men and replaced them with Islamists? Your immediate reaction will be to say "nonsense. Western leaders would never be so evil as to support the persecution of Christians."

Don't be so sure. A quick look at the demographics of major European cities shows that Muslim immigrants are filling the living spaces and are receiving the lion's share of social assistance (giving the lie to the mantra that they are needed to take jobs Europeans won't do). The natives of these areas are horrified at the Islamization of their towns and their countries. Yet, their leaders ignore their pleas for a sane immigration policy.

Is it not obvious that Western elites have contributed more to the de-Christianization and Islamization of the world than any other group?

So next time government tells us we must wage another war in the Middle East to "keep the world safe for democracy," let's just say no. War is to protect our own Western countries, not to support Muslim tyrants or "democracy" movements in areas where radicals and bullies are sure to seize power by the ballot box.

"Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake."  Matthew 24:9

"...the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.” John 17:14-26

“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world. John 16:33

Note from Berit: Ponder this statement from the article, "Whitewashing the Muslim Brotherhood:

       "Of the fifteen professors, only one, Jamsheed Choksy (Indiana University), strongly opposed empowering the Muslim Brotherhood. Not coincidentally, he was the only one who considered American strategic interests. By contrast, Rashid Khalidi (Columbia) explicitly opposed interfering with a Brotherhood ascendency, even if it hurt our geopolitical standing."

       The goal for the world's elite leaders seems to be a global government. The Muslim Brotherhood has a parallel vision: a global caliphate. That vision would imply (1) global Sharia law, (2) a submissive dhimmi state for non-Muslims, and (3) forced conversion or death for all uncompromising Christians.

       This last report illustrates the loss of freedom faced by Christians:

Mobile networks told to ban 'Jesus Christ' from airwaves [Pakistan]: "The Pakistan Telecommunications Authority is banning the name of 'Jesus Christ' from any text message sent in the country. The government's telecommunications agency has ...informed mobile companies that they have seven days to implement filters in their systems... The official list included a number of English language slang terms for sexual acts, religious words..."
