Muslim Persecution of Christians

Pages: 1 2

Nigeria: The Muslim militant group, Boko Haram, executed two children of an ex-terrorist and “murderer” because he converted to Christianity.  When still a terrorist, he “was poised to slit the throat of a Christian victim” when “he was suddenly struck with the weight of the evil he was about to commit.” After finding he converted to Christianity, “Boko Haram members invaded his home, kidnapped his two children and informed him that they were going to execute them in retribution for his disloyalty to Islam. Clutching his phone, the man heard the sound of the guns that murdered his children.”

General Killings

Egypt: After a Christian inadvertently killed a Muslim in a quarrel begun by the latter, thousands of Muslims rose in violence, “collectively punishing” the Copts of the village. Two Christians “not party to the altercation” were killed; others were stabbed and critically wounded. As usual, “after killing the Copts, Muslims went on a rampage, looting and burning Christian-owned homes and businesses.”  Even so, “Muslims insist they have not yet avenged” the death of their co-religionist, and there are fears of “a wholesale massacre of Copts.” Many Christians have fled their homes or are in hiding.

Kenya: Suspected Islamic extremists, apparently angered at the use of wine during communion—Islam forbids alcohol—threw a grenade near a church compound killing two, including an 8-year-old girl, and critically wounding three others.  The pastor of another congregation received a message threatening him either to flee the region “within 48 hours or you see bomb blast taking your life and we know your house, Christians will see war. Don’t take it so lightly. We are for your neck.”

Nigeria: In the latest round of violence, soon after mosque prayers were heard, hundreds of armed Muslims invaded Christian villages, “like a swarm of bees,” killing, looting, and destroying virtually everything in sight; at the end of their four-hour rampage, some 150 people had been killed—at least 130 of them Christians.  Another 45 Christians were also killed by another set of “Allahu Akbar!” shouting Muslims who burned, looted, and killed. Hundreds of people are still missing; the attacks have included the bombing of at least ten church buildings.  Nearly all the Christians in the area have fled the region.

Pakistan: A 25 year-old Christian was shot dead by “an unidentified gunman in what his family believes was a radical Muslim group’s targeting of a Christian.”  According to the son, “We firmly believe that my father was killed because of his preaching of the Bible, because there is no other reason.”  He began to receive threats “after voicing his desire to start a welfare organization for the poor Christians” of the region.


(General Abuse, Debasement, and Suppression of non-Muslim “Second-Class Citizens”)

November’s major instances of dhimmitude come from two Muslim nations notorious for violating Christian rights—Egypt and Pakistan—neither of which is even cited in the U.S. State Department’s recent International Religious Freedom report:

Egypt: Following October’s Maspero massacre, when the military killed dozens of Christians, some run over intentionally by armored vehicles, Egypt’s military prosecutor detained 34 Christians, including teens under 16, on charges of “inciting violence, carrying arms and insulting the armed forces”; many of the detainees were not even at the scene and were just collected from the streets for “being a Christian.” Three are under 16 years of age, including one who, after having an operation to extract a bullet from his jaw, was chained to his hospital bed. Hundreds of Christians also came under attack from Muslims throwing stones and bottles, after the Christians protested against the violence at Maspero: “Supporters of an Islamist candidate for upcoming parliamentary election joined in the attack on the Copts.”  Meanwhile, a senior leader of the Salafi party, which came in second after the Muslim Brotherhood in recent elections, blamed Christians for their own massacre, calling “Allah’s curse on them.”  Muslim Brotherhood leaders asserted that only “drunks, druggies, and adulterers” are against the implementation of Sharia—a clear reference to Egypt’s Christians.

Pakistan: A new U.S. government commission report indicates that Pakistani school textbooks foster intolerance of Christians, Hindus, and all non-Muslims, while most teachers view religious minorities as “enemies of Islam.” “Religious minorities are often portrayed as inferior or second-class citizens who have been granted limited rights and privileges by generous Pakistani Muslims, for which they should be grateful,” notes the report.  Accordingly, in an attempted land-grab, Muslim police and cohorts of a retired military official, beat two Christian women with “batons and punches,” inflicting a serious wound to one of the women’s eyes after the women spoke up in defense of their land, and shot at Christians who came to help the women.  “In the last few years Muslims have made several attempts to seize the land from the Christians, usually succeeding because Christians are a marginalized minority.”  Likewise, under a “false charge of theft,” a Christian couple was arrested and severely beaten by police; the pregnant wife was “kicked and punched” even as her interrogators threatened “to kill her unborn fetus.”  A policeman offered to remove the theft charges if the husband would only “renounce Christianity and convert to Islam.”

About this Series

Because the persecution of Christians in the Islamic world is on its way to reaching epidemic proportions, “Muslim Persecution of Christians” was developed to collate some—by no means all—of the instances of Muslim persecution of Christians that surface each month. It serves two purposes:

  1. Intrinsically, to document that which the mainstream media does not: the habitual, if not chronic, Muslim persecution of Christians.
  2. instrumentally, to show that such persecution is not “random,” but systematic and interrelated—that it is rooted in a worldview inspired by Sharia.

Accordingly, whatever the anecdote of persecution, it typically fits under a specific theme, including hatred for churches and other Christian symbols; sexual abuse of Christian women; forced conversions to Islam; apostasy and blasphemy laws; theft and plunder in lieu of jizya; overall expectations for Christians to behave like cowed dhimmis (second-class citizens); and simple violence and murder. Oftentimes it is a combination thereof.

Because these accounts of persecution span different ethnicities, languages, and locales—from Morocco in the west, to India in the east, and throughout the West wherever there are Muslims—it should be clear that one thing alone binds them: Islam—whether the strict application of Islamic Sharia law, or the supremacist culture born of it.

    Meanwhile, it was revealed that “Christians are being refused refugee status [in the U.S.] and face persecution and many times certain death for their religious beliefs under Sharia, while whole Muslim communities are entering the U.S. by the tens of thousands per month despite the fact that they face no religious persecution.”

    And you can't tell me that some people aren't getting paid handsomely to betray the USA.

    Indeed, because Bush like a Dhimmicrat on steroids used 9/11 as a crisis to justify doubling the size, scope, and power of the federal government via the extremely intrusive Patriot Act, the humongous and totally useless Department of Homeland Security, the incredibly invasive TSA, and the gargantuan and completely incompetent National Intelligence Directorate, ostensibly to protect the homeland, but in reality to create the false sense of security necessary to continue accommodating mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage, US federal deficits and the US's national debt as a result inevitably started skyrocketing through the roof in 2008 the instant the economy headed south. Hence, today we are on the fast track to becoming Greece and Republicans and Dhimmicrats alike can't agree on what to do about it.

    Sadly, I haven't heard one Republican, much less a Dhimmicrat, proposing outlawing Islam and banning and reversing mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage as a way of getting our financial house back in order. Indeed, common sense dictates that zero Muslims living in America as a fifth column would equal zero probability of violent jihad attacks. Thus, with zero Muslims living in America, we could simply roll back all the massive expansion of government that the Bush administration in its infinite wisdom forced upon us.

    Not to mention, what other immigrant groups besides Muslims does the US federal government spend hundreds of billions of dollars on an annual basis just to accommodate, and what do Muslims have to contribute to America other than their excess baggage to make Bush's massive expansion in the size, scope, and power of the federal government all worth it? And why is this unpleasant issue always avoided like the plague?

    Thus, today we are contemplating massive budget cuts, massive tax increases, and implementing insane draconian budget cuts to our military that will inevitably swing the door wide open for the forces of totalitarianism to become predominant in the world all so we can continue accommodating mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage. How absurd is that?

    I hate to say it but it is nevertheless true, the Republican Party and the Dhimmicrat Party, thanks to George Bush, are really two sides of the same grossly incompetent Leftwing coin.

      The failure of "Christian" America to respond to Islamic persecution of Christians is beyond appalling. It exposes a potentially fatal lack of the basic will to live.
      Christian America is behaving as badly as the American Jewish establishment which supports Obama and also lacks the will to even speak up properly.
      Meanwhile the stealth Muslim in the White House is working overtime to dismantle this nation. We need a true leader to mobilize us for the fight of our lives.

    Satan has been fighting God from before he was cast out of heaven. God authored the Bible and it is blatantly obvious that Satan authored the Koran to war against what God loves, created, and had His Son die for. Satan’s battle includes the destruction of Israel and the USA which was established as a haven for the persecuted Bible believers from Europe and as a Bastian for missionaries during the last century.
    Satan uses pride, greed, lust, power, and more to sway and blind leaders to do and accept wrong while thinking it is right. How many are blinded to say or believe they are Christians but never accepted what God declares to be ‘one of His’ now and for eternity.
    Make this personal; every person will spend eternity with God’s adversary if they do not belong to God’s family. Eternity is a long time and if it is not in heaven, then where is it? It will be with those persecuting Judeo-Christians!

  • StephenD

    Shhh, listen! Don't you hear the protestations of our government? No? Me either. Their silence is deafening.
    EVERY SINGLE PUBLIC OFFICIAL in the USA ought to have an official statement regarding this issue. Democrat, Republican, Independent, whatever, take a stand; one side or the other. Remaining silent is tantamount to condoning the slaughter of innocents.

    I thought Muslims are the most prosecuted religion??? so I guess it would be Christians and Jews—

    Above article: "Christians are being refused refugee status [in the U.S.] and face persecution and many times certain death for their religious beliefs under Sharia, while whole Muslim communities are entering the U.S. by the tens of thousands per month despite the fact that they face no religious persecution.”

    It is most URGENT that a huge campaign – emails, petitions, phone calls, meetings with government representatives and HUGE STREET PROTESTS is mounted by ALL Christian, Jewish, and human rights, and other organizations to protest the VICIOUS and DEADLY PERSECUTION of Christians by the U.S. government and other Western governments for REFUSING to allow into our countries, Christians and other non-Muslims who are severely persecuted by Muslims.

    America's leaders are united with Islam in the WAR against Christians. Iraq's Christians were ruthlessly disarmed by America rendering Christians defenseless prey for barbaric Muslim killers.

    FRONTPAGEMAG: The Plight of Christians in Iraq By: Jamie Glazov
    Wednesday, September 24, 2008

    Murray: More than half of the Christian population has been forced to flee their homes in Iraq because of Islamic violence against them. Their churches have been burned and bombed.

    The official position of the Administration has been that “Coalition Forces assisting the Christians would cause them to be identified with the United States and have even more problems.” As a result they receive no assistance in defending themselves at all.

    Immediately after the American invasion of Iraq, the Christian militias were disarmed. They were the only militias to be disarmed. American forces allowed both the Sunnis and Shiites to keep their armed militias.

    Christians first fled from Baghdad to the Nineveh Plains, and then to Jordan and Syria. In Jordan and Syria the American embassies told Iraqi refugees to go to the United Nations because their plight “was not an American problem.” Excuse me?

    Meanwhile the official position of the State Department under Condi Rice​ is that Christians are harassed by “criminal elements” in Iraq and that no persecution exists. That attitude has caused even greater persecution and led our embassies and other nations to be unhelpful.…

    We should pray for them because they are angry about something that happened thousands of years ago. They are not to be reasoned with but prayed for. It is a spiritual battle.

  • myohmy

    If whites did to blacks what muslims do to Jews and Christians our media couldn't stop screaming racist… bigot…. and whatever they could say to vilify whites. Never trust our media and never never, never trust any muslim. Forget this lie that we only need fear "radical" muslims… all of islam is radical.

  • howe71

    We have a muslim in the whitehouse but far too many people like to think he is the next coming of Martin Luther King which he is not. Mr King didn't have to deceive and lie to get his movement going for equality and fairnes in dealing with race relations. I'm ashamed to see fellow Americans like the Rev Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and the President and his corrupt minnions continually play the race card and demonize anyone who disagrees with their socialist ideology. These phonies have created an atmosphere of devisiveness the likes of which I have never seen before and its all to serve the cause of communistic ideology which would allow them to have the power and control to dictate how we live or lives from cradle to grave. Why would you support people who are trying to enslave you? Think about it, a freakin entitlement is not worth the cost of losing freedom and maybe your life.

  • Gunner57

    Martin Luther King was a communist and never had an original thought in his life. I'm just being nice. Want to get me started about this sleazy fraud?
