Christians May Be an Endangered Species

This is perhaps the worst anti-Christian violence in the Middle East in seven centuries, with hundreds of churches torched and thousands of Christians killed or run out of their homelands. Yet the western media has mainly focused on assaults against the Muslim Brotherhood, no major political figure has said anything significant about the attacks against Christians.
The picture is of a burned out Christian church in Southern Egypt
Why has the American and British press ignored or under-reported this persecution, and (in my mind) given a distorted narrative of what is truly happening.
Betsy Hiel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review in Brittan, who has spent years in Egypt and covered Iraq and Afghanistan said. “ There were lots of stories of Muslims protecting their Christian neighbors, but there were also incidents with frightening echoes” said Hiel, she described a man riding on his bike past a burned down church and laughing, “which brought to my mind the scene in when local Poles make throat-slitting gestures to Jews en route to Auschwitz.” Said Hiel.
A young Coptic Christian girl laying dying in the street writhing in pain because her arms and legs had been hacked off by Brotherhood so-called freedom fighters. She bled to death as no one would help and it wasn’t on the front page of the politically correct New York Times.
The governments of America and Europe out of ignorance support these animals that are committing these hyannis acts of violence by the Muslim Brotherhood and its affiliates like al-Qaida with money and military support.
Some of this has been reported, but the focus has been on the violence committed against the Brotherhood terrorists. Judging by the accounts given by Nina Shea of the Center for Religious Freedom, the American press is even more blind, and the government not much better; when Mubarak was overthrown one US agency described the Muslim Brotherhood as being ‘essentially secular’, showing their total and absolute ignorance.
British historian Tom Holland declared sadly that “we are now seeing the extinction of Christianity and other minority faiths in the Middle East. As he pointed out, it’s the culmination of the long process that began in the Balkans in the late 19th century, reached its horrific European climax in 1939-1945, and continued with the Greeks of Alexandria, the Mizrahi Jews and most recently the Chaldo-Assyrian Christians of Iraq. The Copts may have the numbers to hold on for a while, Holland said, and the Jews of Israel, but can anyone else?”
Without a state (and army) of their own, minorities are merely subservient slaves. The question is whether we can do anything to prevent extinction, and whether Western foreign policy can be directed towards helping Christian interests rather than, as currently seems to be the case, helping the Islamic Jihadists.
The saddest question was from a young man who was Coptic Egyptian. He asked: ‘Where was world Christianity when this happened?’ Well… Nowhere. Watching X-Factor. Being politically correct and supporting the enemy of freedom. Or just too frightened of controversy to raise Muslim-on-Christian violence.
Bishop Angaelos, leader of the UK Copts, also expressed disappointment at the response from other religious leaders, saying that “if Christians burned down 10 mosques, let alone 50, they’d be going over to show their sympathy and shame”.
The most outspoken British religious leader is Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, and the debate brought to mind something Rabbi Sacks recently said about Middle Eastern Christians, comparing their fate with the extermination of the Jews in Europe, and quoting Martin Luther King: “In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”
THE BOTTOM LINE: If you still think for one moment that the Muslim Jihad against the Kaffaar is isolated to the Middle East, you would be so ignorantly wrong my friend. At one time in history Egypt was more Christian than America is now, as well as Indonesia and Lebanon. It is just a matter of a little more time and your town will look like Cairo, Bagdad or Damascus.
Turning a blind eye or believing it can’t happen here is a fantasy you can’t afford. It won’t go away or stay over there. Check any time in history where there is one Muslim there is eventually a barbaric Muslim State.
The only country in the world this will not happen is Japan. Muslims are not allowed to take up permanent residency in Japan.
Given enough time, and if we continue down this road of blind ignorance the whole world except Japan will be part of the Ummah, the world Nation of Islam.
If you agree, please share these posts with your friends, family, co-workers. The only way to defeat the apathy and propaganda of the government controlled media is to spread the truth.
