The Middle East War on Christians
Muslim-majority nations are doing to followers of Jesus what they did to the Jews.
By Ron Prosor
This week, as Jews celebrate the Passover holiday, they are commemorating the Bible’s Exodus story describing a series of plagues inflicted on ancient Egypt that freed the Israelites, allowing them to make their way to the Holy Land. But over the past century, another exodus, driven by a plague of persecution, has swept across the Middle East and is emptying the region of its Christian population. The persecution is especially virulent today.
The Middle East may be the birthplace of three monotheistic religions, but some Arab nations appear bent on making it the burial ground for one of them. For 2,000 years, Christian communities dotted the region, enriching the Arab world with literature, culture and commerce. At the turn of the 20th century, Christians made up 26% of the Middle East’s population. Today, that figure has dwindled to less than 10%. Intolerant and extremist governments are driving away the Christian communities that have lived in the Middle East since their faith was born.
In the rubble of Syrian cities like Aleppo and Damascus, Christians who refused to convert to Islam have been kidnapped, shot and beheaded by Islamist opposition fighters. In Egypt, mobs of Muslim Brotherhood members burn Coptic Christian churches in the same way they once obliterated Jewish synagogues. And in Iraq, terrorists deliberately target Christian worshippers. This past Christmas, 26 people were killed when a bomb ripped through a crowd of worshipers leaving a church in Baghdad’s southern Dora neighborhood.
Obviously, since I am a Christian, and Mr Condell is an atheist, we disagree on a few points, but it’s ok to disagree.
When is the murder not news? When the murderer is a muslim.
Did you hear about the bodies of 2 young women found in a dumpster in Bolivar, just a ferry ride from Galveston? There was a snippet on the news, but that’s about it. The murderer has been arrested. Did you know the two women were murdered because they were lesbians, and the murderer is the father of one of the young women? And, he is a muslim? Don’t let the fact that he has a long list of criminal convictions to his name get in the way. Apparently, it’s ok for him to commit crimes, such as sexual assault, because he is….wait for it….a muslim!
The Christian parents of the daughter’s girlfriend has forgiven the murderer of their daughter, which is what Christians are suppose to do….forgive. Of course, that doesn’t mean that we don’t believe that the evil perpetrated on the victims of such evil should go unpunished.
A large number of released prisoners are coming out as muslim converts. I’m not really sure why this is, but perhaps it’s because the inmates who are the most violent are attracted to the most violent religion?
Did you know there are several HUMAN slaughter houses in Syria? Anyone, Christian or muslim, who does not adhere to the takfir ideology is a candidate for murder and disembowelment. Nice, eh? This has been going on for 3 years, since the beginning of the civil war in that country. Is all that blood on Obama’s hands, too?
In certain areas of the world, it’s quite acceptable to slaughter Christians, and no one says a word. Syria has become a hotbed of Christian slaughter, by those who were armed by none other than the pretender in chief of the U.S. of A. This isn’t just an isolated incident. This is islam. These aren’t extremists. These are muslims.
How much did you hear about the beheading of a Christian mother, in front of her two young daughters? Likely, nothing at all.
Was the ongoing slaughter in Nigeria on your nightly newscast? I don’t recall a single word being spoken about the most recent attacks where 100 villagers were murdered. Why? Because they were Christians. By whom? Well, I’ll give ya one guess, get it wrong, and you go to the back of the class. Yes, the murderers were muslims.
Likely you also didn’t hear about the Hindu neighborhood in Pakistan that was attacked, and a community center burned down. Why? A rumor. It’s a maybe that a Hindu tenant MIGHT have accidentally burned a book. That’s all it took for a number of suppose grown men to torch a neighborhood. Who were the vandals? Well, let me see…who are the most destructive beings on the planet….even more so than liberal politicians? Gosh, there’s a head scratcher for ya.
meanwhile, in the same country, Hindus were celebrating Holi, a not very religious holiday, mainly celebrating the arrival of spring, where the participants throw colored water on each other. Three people were doused with colorful acid by….you guessed it…muslims.
Over in Great Britain, the preaching of hatred (all non muslims are criminals) by numerous imans and other leaders, like…well…David Cameron (thinks GB needs to embrace muslim lifestyle, and not the other way around), continues. Is it any wonder, with such national leaders, the unthinkable has become common place?
Never mind that muslim doctors are free to molest female patients. Never mind that a British soldier was brutally hacked to death, in the name of that false god allah, in broad daylight. Never mind that a large chunk of the Brits taxpayer money is going to support freeloading muslims. Never mind that it is a well known fact, by a large majority, that islam is completely incompatible with Western culture, and a good chunk of Brits see a civil war brewing in their own country. How many Brits have been arrested for speaking the truth about islam?
Which, makes me wonder…when will the arrests begin here, in the U.S., for speaking out against a hate filled, murderous cult that is creeping into our society. Do we even know how many muslims have managed to obtain positions of power in our country? We know about the ‘power behind the thrown’, Iranian born Valerie Jarrett. We know about Keith Ellison, U.S. Rep from MN. Do we know how many sit in judgement on the benches across the nation?
REAL muslims cannot adapt to a country ruled by rational law, as set forth by the U.S. Constitution, founded by men of faith. Their laws are not our laws. We can’t be ‘friends’.
….and show ‘em ALL the exit!
Now, some folks are going to say I’m being unfair to judge all by the actions of a few. Few? Really? When we have KNOWN terrorist training camps right here in the U.S. of A., I don’t think I’m being unfair at all! (For a list of known locations, click here.) Yes, there is even one outside of Dover, Tennessee (northeast of Nashville), although the media refuses to acknowledge that fact.
Once upon a time, folks came from all over the world to live the American Dream. Now? Even though many are still striving for that dream, many others are coming to change the U.S. into the hell holes they left behind, muslims being the worst of the lot. They want to change our laws to suit their cult beliefs, and if we don’t comply, there are lawsuits, using our legal system against us.
I’m fairly sure not all muslim coming here want to destroy the U.S., and many do want to leave the evil behind. Those wouldn’t really be considered true muslims, like those following the dictates of an evil pedophile murderous ‘prophet’. But many are spreading their hate throughout the nation, and we, sadly, are allowing it to happen.
Let’s take, for example, a young fellow in Florida who wanted to blow up bridges, or perhaps law enforcement offices, or, better yet, blowing up a ‘party district’, then spraying the first responders with automatic fire. Yes, indeedy, a true example of islam at its best!
Have you heard about the ‘cutting parties’? Did you know that 150,000 to 200,000 young girls are taken to their country of origin to be sliced and diced? They called it FGM, or female genital mutilation, and even though I’ve found no evidence of it be an actual part of islam, or mentioned in the quran, it is a practice in many muslim countries and cultures to mutilate women, this is just one of many ways that islam brutalizes women, and young girls. Even though the quran does say that women have the same rights as men (2:228), it also states that men are superior to women. What a load of hogwash! In my opinion, these cultures that insist on female circumcision should also insist on male castration! Fair is fair, right? FGM is illegal in most rational Western countries, including the U.S., but it still is happening. We close our eyes to such a ‘culturally sensitive’ issue.
After all the blood our young men and women spilled ousting one of the many barbarians in Iraq, murderer of his own people, the Iraqis threw away their chance for true freedom, and allowed the shi-ites to become their new dictators. Pedophilia and rape is the name of the game. Hussein was evil, but at least the women had the freedom to get an education, and decide their own course, unless, of course, they caught the eye of Saddam’s boys, then it was a whole ‘nuther ballgame. Now, women in islamic areas of the country, which is pretty much the whole place, are subject to the same brutality that is shared by all muslim controlled countries.
Did you know there have been 70 mulim terrorist attacks in the U.S. since 1972? Considering the penchant of muslim violence, that really doesn’t sound like a lot. But that’s just on U.S. soil. The attacks on U.S. interests around the world is MUCH highers, as is the body count.
There are several groups working in the U.S. to undermine our Constitution, most notably is the Muslim Brotherhood, and C.A.I.R. Sadly, this administration embraces both organizations, and ignores the threat to our sovereignty.
One issue that has been largely ignored is the southern border. Oh, yes, we do chat about the numerous illegals crossing the border, but this has been focused on the Mexicans and others from farther south. Yes, this is a great concern. However, do we ever consider the OTMs? Sadly, no. Channel 2 in Atlanta had an investigative report a few years ago that addressed this issue, but not one thing has ever been done to resolve this very serious problem. The Obama Regime wants new Dem voters, so the border remains porous. The safety of the United States citizens is not, and never has been, a priority.
The 1st Amendment grants citizens the right to freely practice their religion. Islam is not a religion. It is a cult, one that promotes murder. Our laws do not permit such actions, therefore, it is not a violation of a muslim’s 1st Amendment right to prevent the practice of such evil.
Allah is NOT God! Yes, it is way past time to slam the door in the face of islam.
Relevant in every Western country!
I was reading a pretty terrific column yesterday called Israel: A failed state by Charles Abelsohn. Mr Abselsohn went looking for the ‘apartheid’ in Israel that so many claim to exist, like the over educated morons at Tufts University. It’s quite obvious to me that those idiotic students have never been to Israel, and insist on believing the propaganda spread by the non existent palestinians and those blowhards that stand in front of a classroom and spew hatred.
Mr Abselsohn’s search for apartheid in Israel was a complete failure. Everywhere he went on his quest, “Arabs and Jews were mixing peacefully“, no matter the setting; banks, beaches, shopping areas, it didn’t matter, there was no apartheid. No where in Israel are palestinians not allowed to go.
I remember the signs in the South, “Whites Only”, “Colored Waiting Room”, etc., rather like you would have seen in South Africa, where apartheid was very real, and very wrong in both places. There were no signs “Arabs/muslims not allowed” as you might expect from the propaganda those feckless students, and many like them, want you to believe.
Oddly enough, there was not even a hint of apartheid in universities, hospitals, or even the Israeli army where you have “Ethiopians, Beduin Arabs, Christian Arabs, Moslem Arabs, Druse and Circassians (Moslems originally from the Northern Caucuses)“. Is that what those kids think is apartheid? Do those brains of mush know there have been 69 NON Jewish members of the Knesset since Israel’s founding in 1948? I doubt it!
But who in the area has and DOES implement apartheid? The rumor must have come from somewhere, right? Well, in truth, it’s the palestinians themselves who have done so, through “legislation forbidding the sale of property to Jews; the sentence for transgressions: death.” “There are no Jews or Israelis living in Areas A & B under Palestinian Authority control.”
When the Mr and I went to Israel in 2008, our Israeli guide wasn’t even allowed into Bethlehem, although those living in that city were allowed leave without too many problems. Yes, there was a wall, but that was for the safety of Israel, NOT to imprison those living there. The unbelievable hatred I saw in the eyes of even the palestinian police was very disconcerting. The graffiti seen on the walls was more than a little disturbing. There were other areas we didn’t visit because Avi was forbidden entrance. Why? Because he is a Jew. But everywhere we went, with the exception of Bethlehem, and Jordon, there were Jews and Arabs, side by side, working peacefully, in shops, restaurants, any number of places we visited. Muslims live in Israel, have Israeli citizenship, and can vote in Israeli elections.
Mr Abelsohn finally found apartheid. “The Palestinians have announced that no Jews or Israelis will be entitled to live in their state after it is founded.“ I pray that state is never founded.
Note: Change a few words, like British for American, etc.
Note to muslims: If you are offended, I don’t give a happy crappy!
I won’t capitalize that name. I won’t capitalize muslim either. It’s a small thing, but neither term deserve the the proper name capitalization.
I question if people will ever wake up to the brutality of that so called ‘religion of peace’. Even George W. Bush had the audacity to call it such after they brought down the Towers, and muslims all over the world cheered.
Peace? There will be no peace until every muslim is wiped off the planet, or they accomplish their goal…to wipe every single person who won’t bow to their 7th century brutality is ash. Those muslim who claim it to be a peaceful religion haven’t read that ‘holy’ book, or sura, or hadith. If they had, and still claim that peace is within their cult, then they are just as guilty as those who perpetrate the crimes against humanity.
Too many governments are turning a blind eye. All you have to do is look at France and Great Britain to see the end results their infiltration. Our own government is now actually importing the terrorists. Has the world gone totally insane?
When I read of the children who are slaughtered, the women who are beaten, brutalized, raped, and murdered, I find it beyond mind boggling that anyone would even consider this a peaceful religion. They murder each other for some imagined slight, or ‘family honor’, or some other ridiculously archaic ideal. They murder children in their beds, slitting their throats, bashing their heads in, and the world is silent.
I will not be silent! Will you?
De Blasio want to close public school for muzzie holidays, eh? Well, when did the federal government declare ANY muzzie holiday a national holiday? Did I miss something? Then again, this is New York we’re talkin’ about here, and if there are any sane, rational people left in that city, I’d suggest they get the hell our while they can!
Here’s a couple of items a Facebook friend, Ellis Washington, shared with me that he had written a few years ago.
I would suggest reading both columns!
I would also suggest that people pull their heads out of their hind ends and stop enabling the evil that has engulfed our society!
For many 9/11 was their “wake up call”. Others decided it would be best to appease those who perpetrate such evil on a daily basis around the world. My wake up call came long before 9/11, at my mother’s knee, as she told of the reason why her parent left Lebanon in the late 1800s. When you watch your fellow villagers being slaughtered, and family members dying for no other reason than they are Christian, at the hands of barbarians, you have only two options….flee or die.
They fled…to America…a land that offered opportunities to all who were willing to work. They learned the language, became American citizens, learned what it meant to be an American, and became successful. My grandmother insisted they no longer speak Arabic because they were now Americans. She was proud of that fact…very proud, and taught her children, including my mom (I was adopted), that as the first generation to be born here, they had an obligation to be the best Americans they could. Obey the laws, work hard, be honest, never forget what could have been, and be grateful to God that they had been given a chance they might never have had otherwise!
Yes, I know evil when I see it. I can recognize evil by its actions. Islam is evil. Period.
I’m not much in the mood for posting….blaming the new med…but when I came across this editorial on an Israeli news site, I just had to toss in my 2 cents!
The title caught my eye: Western Media Distorts Egypt’s Constitutional Approval
My first thought… “Well DUH!” Most of the media belongs to the regime now, and getting honest news has become more and more difficult. Many lean towards the far left, and a few to the right. I want truth, but alas… The big outlets have forgotten their purpose, and that is to bring facts to the people, be a voice for the people, and hold all those in the public eye accountable. Well, that sure went by the way side, didn’t it. When it comes to editorial boards, things are even worse than the ‘news’. We have the opinions of people who lean one way in their thinking, and never bother to see the whole picture.
Once upon a time, news organizations, like the New York Times and Washington Post were credible sources of information. This is no longer the case in the editorial realms, as proved by the absurd piece in the Times on Benghazi. They made total fools of themselves! REAL facts never get in their way, do they.
Now come the hit piece by the Post, claiming that the Egyptians don’t know what they’re doing when they voted overwhelmingly for a new Constitution, calling it a ‘phony democracy‘. I suppose it’s understandable since Obama backed the Muslim Brotherhood’s ‘phony’ president Morsi, and the Post is one of the many water carriers for the Obama regime, however, it is quite misleading, and the readers of such a outlet deserve better.
Consider the fact that “98% of 21 million voting Egyptians approved Egypt’s new draft constitution, which represents a vote of confidence for the work of the military, police and interim government.” Got that? 98%! If only the U.S. could get anywhere near that number to vote on important issues, we’d likely be a much better shape than we are right now! I’m talking LEGAL voters, who don’t cheat and vote multiple times, or have no legal right to vote for anything!
In the previous ‘elections’ since Mubarrak’s take down, no Copt was allowed to vote. This time, ALL voters had the opportunity to voice their opinion with their vote….including Coptic Christians.
As the Arutz Shiva piece states, “as even the remotest villager in Egypt can tell you, Mr. Obama does not support the democratic transitional leadership but stands squarely behind ousted President Morsi and his backers. Obama seems now to realize that because of his stance America has lost much of its influence in Egypt to Russia, not to mention respect.”
The loss of respect towards the U.S., thanks to Obama’s backing of terrorist has dealt us a severe blow. One that will take years to regain, once Obama slinks back to whatever hole he chooses to live out his days. However, I do pray that many in the area know that not all Americans are as blatantly ignorant, foolish, or evil as the Obama regime, and we are trying hard to put a stop to his disastrous policies. However, it is quite difficult when you have the media fighting back against liberty loving people all over the world.
Mr Bucci says the enemy is harder to pin down now than it was previously. I beg to differ. The enemy is the same. Islam. Islam is the enemy of freedom the world over. Wipe out Islam, this particular war is over. It’s just that simple.
I doubt the victims and their families don’t give a flying flip whether it was the “A” team, or the JVs who murdered and injured. Mr Obama needs to pull his head out of his hinder, and face reality. He might have enjoyed that caterwauling as a kid, but it’s the ones doing the caterwauling that are murdering innocent people!
These Words from Obama Are Frightening — and Revealing
Steven Bucci – The Foundry
It’s less than comforting to hear the President make light of terrorist threats.
In a recent interview with The New Yorker, President Obama referred to today’s al-Qaeda fighters as the “jayvee” team.
“The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant,” he said.
This shows that the Administration’s wishful thinking about al-Qaeda isn’t over. Obama and his fellow officials seem to think if you say something enough times, it will become true.
