2012: The Year to Persecute Christians

And the culprit is?

Growing persecution of Middle Eastern Christians and holy sites by radical Islamists in the Middle East and Africa in 2012 resulted in large numbers of murders, bombings, imprisonments, church closures and forced conversions to Islam. In addition, the rise of Islamic governments – coupled with tepid responses from some Western countries, the UN and many NGOs – has contributed to unprecedented levels of Christian persecution....

Underscoring the severe dangers, the British daily The Telegraph headlined a pre- Christmas article: “Christianity ‘close to extinction’ in Middle East.” The paper reported on a new study titled “Christianophobia” showing that the “lion’s share of persecution faced by Christians arises in countries where Islam is the dominant faith.”...

A generation from now, Christians may be entirely ‘cleansed’ from their ancestral homes – this at a time when Muslim populations are growing in Europe and America,” he said. “Yet there is very little urgency or even attention to this crisis by the UN, most of the media or Western leaders. I wish I were confident this would change in 2013. But I’m afraid this is an issue most people in America and Europe are determined to avoid.”...

“There is only one place in the broader Middle East where Christians are free and unafraid – and their population is growing,” he said.

“That place is Israel
. Many people don’t know that. And even many of those who do know it fail to perceive the significance.”

1 So Rusty do you think that we should welcome these millions to come here? Or ? Maybe just the 1.5 million Iraqi Christian surely we have some responsibility to them for their treatment in the new Iraq.

4 It has been fashionable to verbally abuse Christians in America for some time. Can physical abuse be that far away?

5 In America, the Christians have guns and will kill those who try. Politicians who aid and abet will be removed by force.

6 The Christians might as well get on the bus with the Jews. The greater Middle East has been Judenrein since the 50's, and Israel is the only place where you can find both as well as other smaller religious groups.

7 Lots of tough talk about Islam. Obama sure isn't going to do anything about it. He is too busy thumbing his nose at Israel and America's other allies. He hasn't a clue how much damage his sophomoric "foreign policy" has done and continues to do.

8 No one with an ounce of sense would cout on Obama for anything right.

Post-Obama (probably sooner than you think) will see great changes.

9 Mark, ubama has a clue. He has a clue, all right. It's in a book read back to front. Ahem.
