The 1400 Year War: Christian Persecution Is Real And Ongoing In the Muslim World

otranto-3

Christianity has been at war with Islam for over 1400 years – say what you will but the fact is that the advance of the so called Religion of Peace was not stopped at the gates of Vienna in 1529, the Muslims only initiated a strategic pause to change strategies from direct confrontation to a war of attrition. If you do not believe that it is ongoing, have a look at what happens in areas of the world where the followers of Muhammad (Peanut Butter Upon Him) hold sway:

The attack on an Anglican church in Pakistan on September 22 caused Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby to speak out on attacks on Christians in the Muslim world. He said Christians are being martyred for their faith in many Muslim countries and this past weekend’s violence is only the tip of the iceberg.

According to the International Society for Human Rights in Frankfurt, Germany, 80 percent of all acts of religious discrimination in the world today are directed against Christians.

The Center for the Study of Global Christianity in the United States estimates that in the last decade, an average of 100,000 Christians have died each year in what the center calls a “situation of witness,” meaning for motives related to their faith.

Although some experts regard that estimate as inflated, it works out to an average of 11 Christians killed each hour throughout the past decade.

On September 21, the al-Shabaab Muslim terrorist group attacked the Westgate Mall in Nairobi, Kenya and announced they only wanted to kill non-Muslims. Witnesses said the gunmen lined up men, women, and children and quizzed them on Islam, murdering those who could not answer correctly on the spot. Over 60 people were killed.

On September 22, two suicide bombers attacked the All Saints Anglican church in Peshawar, Pakistan; 85 worshipers were killed and 200 injured in that attack.

In March, Muslims torched dozens of Christian homes in Pakistan.

In January, tens of thousands of Coptic Christians left Egypt when Islamist President Mohammed Morsi rose to power. When he was overthrown in July, things did not get better for the ones who stayed. Muslim Brotherhood supporters set fire to the Churches of Abraham and the Virgin Mary in Menya; burned down the Mar Geergiss Church, the main Coptic church in southern Sohag; and murdered many priests and laymen. The Virgin Mary and Priest Ibram Monastery in Delga was forced to cancel Mass for the first time in 1,600 years.

Welby said Christians are being attacked specifically because of their faith.

And in Nairobi, Kenya where mall patrons were asked question to determine if they were Muslim or not:

Soldiers told of the horrific torture meted out by terrorists in the Nairobi mall massacre yesterday with claims hostages were dismembered, had their eyes gouged out and were left hanging from hooks in the ceiling.

Men were said to have been castrated and had fingers removed with pliers before being blinded and hanged.

Children were found dead in the food court fridges with knives still embedded in their bodies, it was claimed.

A while back we wrote of the Martyrs of Otranto in Pope Francis Conveys Sainthood to The Martyrs of Otranto – let us understand that the Christians killed in the the Muslim world today are no less martyrs.

  1. Thanks for putting this up and linking to the Martyrs of Otranto ……… It is vital that People See and understand the ways if islam.

    Their goals and methods have been exacltly the same since its beginning ……. and of course the Vast Ocean of Silence and indifference by the “good” Moderate” muslims also continues unabated.

    It is what it is Folks ……… calling it “The Religion of Peace” isn’t going to change it.
    Nor is it going to protect you from their violence and hatred.

    • Kells,

      Actually, Muhammad said that Muslims must first offer a people the chance to convert, but if they refuse, then they are to be defeated by the sword. Only AFTER this defeat will the survivors be offered a chance to pay the dihmmi tax (and then, only Jews and Christians). Those who still refuse loose their heads. There is no allowance for anything else, and when you understand how that tax works, you realize it is a death sentence to all other religions as you lose control of your kids and most your property and are forbidden to teach your faith — even to your kids. Once an area is concurred, Islam typically sets about destroying any and all symbols of the past, as well — to erase other religions.

      Muhammad said fight until there is ONLY Islam. This is NOT an “option” in Islam, it is a command from Allah, given by Muhammad.

  2. Funny how prophecy speaks about the army of martyred saints having marks from where they had been beheaded, isn’t it? I mean, that was written hundreds of years before Islam was even thought about, when they were still killing Christians mostly by crucifixion, burning at the stake and with lions.

    Anyway, be careful, boss: you are getting perilously close to calling all Muslims warmongers 😉

    • If the shoe fits…

      Modern conventional wisdom tends to blame Christians for the Crusades by treating them as a military assault by corrupt Europeans based on religious bigotry – but the real history tells a different tale, one of Islamic expansion and repression based on war, forced conversion and enslavement. There is another war coming, one where there will be no innocent bystanders. Radical Islam is a totalitarian political ideology masquerading as a religion, one that is just as interested in subjugating Muslims that it considers insufficiently “Muslim” as it is in exterminating Christians and Jews.

      • As an observation to this Comment Utah…

        The Crusades were an action taken to RE_TAKE the territory that was the Birth-place of Jusaiism and Christianity……the Crusaders did NOT go on to conquer other mohameddans lands. So you are correct.

        Also there has NEVER been a war perpetrated by ANY other religion….Buddhist, Hindu, Christian whose purpose was to attack Islam….EVER. Whereas the muslims have waged war exclusively against NON_MUSLIMS since the 700s AD.

        Think about that …… islam is the single most belligerent Cult in the last 1400 years…….. they have attacked based on so-called “religion”…..Chritian nations, secular nations, Pagan (Greek) nations, Buddhist nations, Hindu nations, Sihk States……in fact there is not a single non-muslim religion that HASN’T been attacked…..often repeatedly !!!

  3. The American Public (youth) needs to be educated in the principal religions as a required course in all levels of higher learning. Required college courses on the Koran (Islam Cult) and the Bible as History would expose the true meaning of what these ideas are all about. We are facing a momentous ideological clash in the next few years and everyone needs the facts to determine their side of the fight.

    I think (prior to 2008 election) that if every American student was exposed, required to read, Obama’s “Dreams from My Father,” Obama would NEVER be elected, much less respected as any type of ethical, honest person.

    • Edward – I have spent a little time with the under-30 set over the past few weeks and I am amazed at how functionally illiterate they are when it comes to philosophy, politics and government. They don’t even know who Bastait, Locke, Montesquieu or de Tocqueville are, much less have read them.

      They don’t even have the basic knowledge of how a republic works. Obama got elected – twice – on tidal waves of pure ignorance.

  4. Utah,
    I agree, but are there enough of “Us” that can effect the 2014 changes that are necessary to direct our political destiny out of the current disastrous dilemma? Rush says we can, if the House Republicans stand against Obama/Reid. I hope so!

    I’m getting to the point that I try to avoid conversations with the “under 30-set” to keep a considerate level of public decorum.
