Muslim Persecution of Christians at a Crossroads

Pages: 1 2

Preface: The following article was written for Christian Solidarity International, “an international, Christian human rights organization, campaigning for religious liberty and human dignity, and assisting victims of religious persecution, victimized children and victims of catastrophe.” 

Be sure to sign CSI’s petition urging President Obama to present during his forthcoming State of the Union Address his “administration’s policy to prevent the eradication of the endangered Christian communities and other religious minorities of the Islamic Middle East.” 

When the major media reported a few months ago that Iranian Pastor Yousef Nadarkhani was set to be executed for leaving Islam, many Western people were shocked, finding it hard to believe that in the 21st century people are still being persecuted—by their governments no less—simply for being Christian.

The fact is, Muslim persecution of Christians in the modern era has been consistently growing worse.  Yet, because only one out of every few hundred or so cases ever receives major attention, few in the West have any idea that it exists.

For instance, around the same time that the case of Pastor Nadarkhani made headlines, 129 Christians in Sudan were imprisoned, and one in Somalia was beheaded—like the pastor, simply for converting to Christianity.

Dozens of other documented cases of persecution were occurring at the same time, none of which received much media attention.  These include Christians imprisoned, tortured, and killed for allegedly “blaspheming” Islam; Christian girls abducted and raped because they are “infidels”; churches burned, Bibles confiscated, and crucifixes destroyed—and in one instance, a Christian boy killed for refusing to conceal his crucifix.

To anyone familiar with Islam’s history and traditional teachings, none of this is surprising. Instead, all of these accounts demonstrate 14 centuries of continuity.  With Islam’s resurgence and the concomitant upsurge of anti-Christian violence, however, the very existence of Christian and other non-Muslim communities is under threat. The process of religious cleansing could lead to their eradication within a generation [see CSI’s Genocide Warning].

So why is there such a lack of awareness concerning this matter in the otherwise “humanitarian” West?

One reason has to do with recent history. During the colonial era and into the mid 20th century, when Western influence in the Muslim world was strong, Christian persecution was markedly subdued.  Because of the lull in persecution, generations of Westerners came to see events closer to their time as more representative of reality. They tended to overlook the historic and doctrinal roots of Christian persecution under Islam, and thus failed to comprehend what is otherwise so obvious.

      thats a looad of crap. perhaps you should stop reading walt disney pokahantas and lib talking pointsfor your history and realize that while not perfect, the indians you so desperatly try to pretend are victims are far from not. they engajed in everything from theft to rape to genocide themselves. mayans committed human sacrafice as did many native cultures thousands of years befor thoes 'scum' ever showed up so explain that kemosabi? do you actually (and foolishly) believe that indians were lil brown skinned people talking to birds and never hurting a fly until white christians showed up? next for all the problems that DID come up. they dont exist anymore except by indians who WANT to stay on thoes reservations and live in alchoholic desperation. not our problem. hate to tell ya, but the planet is small sooner or later someone would have come a knockin and did the same thing. and the indians did exactly the same things you cry about to other tribes.Sorry homey the only thing you can claim is that the indian violent culture got beaten fair and square at their own game.

      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!

    • guest

      Yes, but history says it was the Muslim slave traders, not the Christians. Your schooling is in error. May be too much attention from the Imams in a sexual light? Too many beatings? Can you understand the Koran? You are weak brained Muzzie. I can tell by the raw uncontrolled hate you radiate…

    • Beth

      Comments like yours randy are getting tiresome. Bring yourself to present times and consider the following facts:

      Taught in the Koran (chapter and verse given for proof):

      047.004 – Beheadings

      008.067 – Treason (and that's putting it mildly)

      033.061 – Genocide "without mercy"

      005.041 – Racism

      Why is it randy……………you NEVER address those facts? Why is it randy….you are so compelled to point in some other direction………..any direction…………when presented with those facts?

      Why won't you address those brutal teachings of the koran randy?


      033.052 – Gang Rape of female 'infidels'

      005.033 – Crucifixions (yes, it actually promotes "crucifixions")

    • Beth

      Last Commands of the Bible:

      Rom 13:9 For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

      Rom 13:10 Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

      Yeah, only "scum" would follow those commands randy (sarc/off)

  • frander

    Ignore this Randy fool. He's just another example of why many don't care about Christian persecution by Muslims: they, like this Randy, simply hate Christians, and likely get pleasure out of their suffering.

      exactly, notice Randy has no intention of giving back and leaving his "stolen land' or specifying where they would go concindering there is not a single spot on the planet that has not been conquored and re concored a gagillion times before 'evil christians' ever came about.

    • SpiritOf1683

      He's just a Mohammedan savage who sponges off those infidels he despises. But its time the money, food, welfare and medicines were cut off from savages like him. Nothing is more guaranteed to end Islam than the withdrawal of aid of every kind to Muslims and to tell thre truth about that evil cult. Through our misplaced 'goodness' and the brain rot of political correctness, we have enabled these savages to thrive.

  • Brujo Blanco

    From the left it is apparent they believe in inherited guilt. If a white man committed an evil act against a black man 200 years ago the left want to hold white people today responsible for that past bad act. The lecture also want to hold Christians today responsible for past bad acts allegedly committed by Chritians against Muslims during the Crusades. The left is in fact using past dead history to justify acts of pure evil committed by Muslims today against Christians and Jews.

    • ziontruth

      "The left is in fact using past dead history to justify acts of pure evil committed by Muslims today against Christians and Jews."

      Yep… but dare to suggest on lefty forums that the Muslims shorten their memories a bit for the sake of peace and drop all those references to Al Andalus, the Crusades, Hulagu Khan etc., and the cries of "RAAAAAACIST!" hit the roof.

    If you think Christians have got it bad, take a peek at what's happened to Jews, Hindus, Sikhs and Budhists and sundry other believers under Muslim and Christian rule.

    Both Christians and Muslims are the same: intolerant, murdering cults. The world will be a better place without these two cults.

    • LindaRivera

      I will never forget what a Hindu wrote. He compared Jesus, with huge slave trader Mohammad, who barbarically murdered huge numbers of innocents.
      The Hindu wrote with great respect, gentle Jesus died on a cross.

        Yeah right! As if you lot here, an in particluar the Americans, ever needed an excuse to hate Hindus. Go sponsor your friends and ally Pakistan to murder Indians, there's a good chap.

        • ziontruth

          My gosh, Kali, you remind me of my fellow co-religionists in America—the majority (lamentably) of American Jews. They too suffer from the problem of not focussing on their real enemies.

          Like my country, Israel, yours has Islamic states for neighbors plus the problem of Muslims residing within its borders, yet you're up in the arms about Christians?! Please. People you have a theological dispute with are a far cry from those who want to murder your entire nation in the name of the political program that comes with their religion.

        • LindaRivera

          Dear Kali,
          Your comment is very strange. I'm American. My friend and ally is NOT Pakistan. Not now. Not ever! I think it is horrible and unforgivable that the American government has given billions of American tax dollars to jihadi Pakistan!

          Hindus and other non-Muslims are severely persecuted and suffer barbaric atrocities and murders by Muslims in Pakistan and Bangladesh and Kashmir, India.
          I am very concerned about the Muslim goal to re-conquer all India. Hindus have suffered horribly from Muslims. HUGE genocides and atrocities.

          India has always been very special to me. My whole life I have always regarded Hindus with respect. I love the Hindu people! Hindus are my friends!

          God bless you dear Kali.

          God bless and protect India forever!

      yeah and hindus with their caste system are no better either. or did you forget the 'untouchables' you harmed throughout the centuries. yeah your real tolerant. you should learn of your own religion. you and islame are closer than we are to them. we at least are in the 21st century, you still exist in 1st century hovels and filth. when you stop washing your hair in cow urine and start eating them, then you can call christianity a "cult" . and im athiest

  • LindaRivera

    Ruling elites and media are silent about the horrendous atrocities and barbaric murders of Christians and other non-Muslims.


    • WilliamJamesWard

      Yes Linda they are complicit and it is just a matter of time before we are
      next, sending the evil back to where it came from is one answer but the
      fact that so many in American life are selling this poison to Americans
      is absolutely outrageous and must be condemned and prosecuted.

  • LindaRivera

    America's EXTREME CRUELTY to Christians is very frightening. It did not start with Obama. Iraq's Christians were ruthlessly disarmed by America rendering Christians defenseless prey for barbaric Muslim killers.

    A war against Muslim terrorists? NEVER. It has always been a
    WAR AGAINST CHRISTIANS. The question is, when will the war against Christians (and Jews), come to America?

    Last week, in a three day, closed to the public conference, Clinton met with the OIC (Organization of Islamic Conference) and others, to work on CRIMINALIZING the defamation of religion (Islam). If, and when, this becomes law, this country will have been conquered by Islam at the invitation of the Clinton/Obama administration.

    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.…

    • Beth

      Clinton is a muslim. Shocker, I know. But……….. "You will will know what is in the heart by what comes from the mouth".

    To Ann:

    Obama tripped up and declared he was a Muslim. The media was quick to cover up for Obama.

    Obama: “My Muslim Faith”

    In the Judeo-Christian nation that is America, President Obama makes no attempt to hide his rabid hate for G-D, the Bible, Judaism and Christianity:

    Obama Mocks & Attacks Jesus Christ And The Bible

  • thomasone

    Is Obama really like a Muslim? Come on, do you really think the President is a Muslim?

    Lets examine his own words for the answer. It is October 2008, just before the election, in an interview with George Stephanaoplis he is assked about his faith. BHO comments, "my Muslim faith." After Gerorge regains his composure he says to BHO, "don't you mean your Christian faith?" BHO says, "Yes my Christian faith." A Muslim would NEVER make the mistake of saying "my Muslim faith," nor would a Christian mis-speak about his faith being Muslim. Point #2. On his first trip after the election, BHO visited the University of Cairo. One of his statements was, as he pointed his finger (arm extended) at the throng of students, was,"I AM ONE OF YOU." Unles he was enrolled as a student at the University (he was not) he could have been only refering to the Muslim religion.

  • Omar Khalid,Cairo

    What a laugh and waste of time. BHO is as corrupt as moohammed was. No way will a muzlim express outrage about Christians being persecuted. BHO just won't stoop that far away even for the taqia benefit.

    What chance does a Christian or any non Muslim have in a land under the

  • FriendofGaryCooper

    How can we restore America as a Christian nation?(Which it was well into the 20th Century; some might argue up until the Presidency of Jimmy Carter) A hostile news media, and instant electronic mass communication, and the leftist views of many churches, militate against such a restoration. However, defeating Obama will be the first step. A second step would be to prosecute him, for crimes against the American people, and against the Constitution; and to prosecute the criminal cabal that got him elected.
    Meanwhile, if Israel hits Iran, and disables their nuclear capability….

  • Al Dente

    We are in an impossible position during a perfect storm. Since we are fed the pablum that there are some "moderate" muslims like the happy folks jes' playing football and getting ready for the prom here in America, and the misinformation that Islam is a religion (not an agressively deadly octopus-cult of terror and acquisition), and since America has freedom of religion, we must continue to "tolerate" their presence and incursion into our society. Now Minnesota has an Islamic school that receives tax money and the tolerant simps there were moronic enough in their good nature to elect a muslim representative, aaaand since the muslims have infiltrated the CIA and the military, then just keep up the voyeuristic fix on that tube, because one day very soon now, you will be forced to comply with sharia law…and dhimmitude. No one will attack muslims in America today. They would go to prison, not be lauded as patriots. Herein lies the dilemma and our future defeat.

  • LindaRivera

    Islam is the only religion on earth that blows up people, buildings, planes, trains, buses, restaurants, markets, etc. And attacks and murders little children as at Beslan.

    • Beth

      and the only religion that gets away with such acts……thanks to the powers that be:

      media giants
      education department
      certain self-proclaiming Christians (take that Wright character – obama's 'religious' teacher – for example)

      These are the leaders (who are sitting on seats that belong not to them, but to ALL members of this nation) who are either ignorant about what the koran teaches (and therefore have no right to decide on any matters concerning islam) or are complicit . I'd rather the reason be they're ignorant. At least in that case – there's still hope for a rude awakening amongst them.

      • LindaRivera

        Beth, I don't believe they are ignorant.

        • Beth

          let me share a thought on that reply:

          How many of them (even including the so-called 'moderate' muslims) if made to understand p-e-r-f-e-c-t-l-y the utter sickness of the koran (and somehow taking away the brain-washing that – islam 'is a religion of peace')….

          beheadings, gang rape of female infidels (after the male members of their families have been slaughtered, of course), crucifixions…the cutting off of hands and feet etc….

          and any logical thinking person would know…..that after all of the 'infidels' are gone…they'd turn on each other because that's just the nature of the teachings of that book.

          To get people to understand that the so-called peaceful teachings of the koran (there are none…but i digress)……can NEVER justify such brutal teachings… where the problem begins.

          Linda, I honestly believe that there are many who would leave islam (more importantly, would stop calling it a 'religion of peace' – would stop supporting it)…if made known the actual truth about their koran.

          My brain refuses to accept that all supporters of islam would continue doing so if they knew the sickening facts.

          Of course there are those, such as that Wright character who knows perfectly what the koran teaches (he's a muslim calling himself a Christian). In that case – one could call him a murderer….and not be lying.

          But I do believe that there are many who are supporting islam….who have no idea of what islam is really about. Many muslims understand fully that it is their duty to lie to non-muslims…and I believe they have done a superb job on that end.

          With all of that said – I will hold out hope that a rude awakening will come.

          I love your posts Linda. Keep them coming!

          • LindaRivera

            Beth, Happy New Year!

            You are right. There are Muslims who don't know what is in the Koran. Most certainly, large numbers of Muslims would NOT carry out violent Islamic religious acts. Some Muslims have risked their lives to save non-Muslims who were in danger. They are true heroes to be admired. The problem is, the significant numbers who have made life a living hell for non-Muslims who live in daily fear in Pakistan, Bangladesh, Egypt and other places. What a nightmare.

            I spoke to an Egyptian Christian lady many months ago. She told me that in the area where she lived here in the USA, there was both Christians and Muslims and that some of the Muslims wanted to convert to Christianity but they did not convert out of FEAR. So tragic.

    Tears of Jihad.
    These figures are a rough estimate of the death of non-Muslims by the political act of jihad.

    For 25 million slaves delivered to the market, we have an estimated death of about 120 million people. Islam ran the wholesale slave trade in Africa.

    120 million Africans

    60 million Christians

    The country of India today is only half the size of ancient India, due to jihad. The mountains near India are called the Hindu Kush, meaning the “funeral pyre of the Hindus.”

    80 million Hindus

    In jihad only Christians and Jews were allowed to survive as dhimmis (servants to Islam); everyone else had to convert or die. Jihad killed the Buddhists in Turkey, Afghanistan, along the Silk Route, and in India.

    10 million Buddhists

    This gives a rough estimate of 270 million killed by jihad.

    • SpiritOf1683

      And the infidel death toll would have been at least double that 270 million figure were it not for the ability of men like Charles Martel, Pelayo, Richard the Lionheart, Janos Hunyadi, Jean Parisol de la Valette, Jan Sobieski and Prince Eugene of Savoy to fight back against the Muslim hordes.

      • LindaRivera

        Yes, indeed. Charles Martel and the other men were real men. It was unthinkable for them not to protect Europeans and fight back with all their might against the extremely cruel Muslim invaders. If only we had such men for leaders today!

  • LindaRivera

    To randy,

    Enormous sins against God and dreadful crimes against our special and wonderful Native American people were committed by some of the leaders of the new European immigrants. Huge crowds of white people demonstrated in the streets to protest the government forcibly moving the precious Native Americans off their land and walking the "Trail of Tears', to another place. Heartbreaking. But this does not even begin to compare to the one thousand, four hundred years of suffering, genocides and land appropriations inflicted by Muslims on non-Muslims.

    I just read about and saw horrifying pictures on the horrors inflicted on the peaceful Hindus of Kashmir by Muslims. Recent and ongoing. Enormous CRUELTY that is NEVER repented of. NEVER. God help the beautiful Hindu people!

    The Christians or Jews who don't care about persecution of Christians and Jews under Islam especially the greedy politicians blinded themselves to such evil (in Germany here we have many Christian leaders who're defending Islam like crazy!) – because they try to justify it through highly manipulative Socialist-constructed propagandas that Christianity/Judaism also promotes 'violence' such as in the Bible/Torah or through the Crusades. It's like they couldn't even read the enlightening truth behind such 'violence' where it's about self-defence mostly against evil predators such as in the freedom struggle by the continously attacked and enslaved Jews, and also including the Crusade as against evil Arabic-led Islamic predators. How can these Jews and Christians (mostly those Socialist or liberal Jews/Christians especially the Islam-loving Hussein Obama's supporters) not defend Judeo-Christianity that founded modern civilized laws such as based on the Ten Commandments, is beyond any rational understanding – whilst they fell down on their knees pathetically like cowards to ever defend the evil and most savage predatory Islam!

  • Beth

    In the article:

    "Yet, because only one out of every few hundred or so cases ever receives major attention, few in the West have any idea that it exists."

    "So why is there such a lack of awareness concerning this matter in the otherwise “humanitarian” West?"

    Media and Education.

    The 'media giants' (as I like to call them) and the things that the Education Department has been up to (which that awareness goes back to the media giants) are to blame for society being in such a deep darkness when it comes to other peoples' plights.

    Until that is corrected…nothing else will be corrected.

    To believe that Obama is capable of caring about it?……is a waste of one's energy.

    Chez, I'm 1/2 Comanche, and 1/2 German (with dual citizenship)! Although my family has not lived on the reservation since the early 20th Century, I have a Comanche name … Tsa Hinu Supanuitu Isa … roughly translated as "Wolf that knows all" (there isn't a word for "wise" in the language).

    My father and all of his brothers (5 in all) served in WWII, and one continued to serve, being killed in Korea. My brother and I both served in Vietnam, and all of my sons have served their country in the military. I also have a daughter who just joined the Army (she wants to be an MP, leading to service as a police officer). One of my sons is a battalion commander in A-stan, and has done service in the Pentagon.

    Three of my sons paid the ultimate price for their devotion to country and family. My pride in them cannot be measured.

    All of us are Chistians of various "stripes", and are concerned about the increasing verbal and physical abuse of Christians throughout the world, and in the United States, and all of us support Israel against its Muslim neighbors.

    "Every mosque will require 3 or 4 FBI or civil monitors to make sure Islam stays within the bounds of living in a country where freedom is honored."

    The koran is the supreme auhtority of all of islam….and with laws that are already 'on the books'……islam is illegal. Period.

    Freedom of religion NEVER included the right to incite the masses into violence.

    The problem is………..not having the power to hold authorites responsible for not upholding the laws that are already in place.
