The Worldwide Attack on Christians–A Follow Up


Several weeks ago I wrote an essay on the topic of the worldwide attack on Christianity based on an article in Commentary magazine and the web sites of Open Doors and The Voice of the Martyrs. Now this weeks issue of Newsweek has a cover story titled The Global War on Christians in the Muslim World.

The author of the Newsweek article, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, herself a victim of Islamic persecution, makes the point that many in the West have been cowed and bullied into silence against this ugly wave of persecution and violence with the accusations of Islamophobia. She rightly points out that what is happening on a worldwide scale is not Islamophobia, but Christophobia; a Christophobia that goes far beyond name calling resulting in torture and murder on a grand scale.

Having a rational fear of Islam is not Islamophobia, it is a rational fear of Islam  based on the long and ugly record of Islam. Perhaps if there had been more Nazi-phobia in the 1930s and 40s,  and more Communist-phobia beginning in the 1930s and through the 1980s there would have ben many millions fewer die in the gas chambers and gulags.

  1. Good thinking, Don. LeRoy

  2. Informed rational freedom loving people have all the reasons in the world to fear islam. The twin fogs of political correctness & ignorance must be dispersed before western society better understands this menace. Even a brief review of islamic theology & history quickly exposes the deadly roots of this evil ideology.

    Mohamhead was a 7th century murdering warlord who rose to power on a river of blood surrounded by thugs and gangsters using intimidation, violence, deception and trickery to expand their criminal empire while mercilessly suppressing and killing their opponents and enriching themselves on stolen booty.

    The evil koran is a collection of sayings and speeches by this diabolical madman claiming divine guidance from some mythical sky-god which has inspired generations of crazed fanatics to abhorrent behavior resulting in historys worst ever crimes against humanity starting 1400 years ago and still continuing even today.

    Islam is just another fascist totalitarian ideology used by power hungry fanatics on yet another quest for worldwide domination and includes all the usual human rights abuses & suppression of freedoms.

    and a snappy graphics version, great for emailing…

  3. This comment is from my friend Ron:
    So many missionaries have witnessed attacks on Christians in so many countries. Do you know in India the government is really a socialist government that although it has classes and a small form of democracy as long as you remain a Hindu or within the sanctioned religion of India you can receive free food and medicine from the government. Once you become a Christian you are looked upon as a non person and can no longer receive these benefits. How many Christians would remain Christians in this country if they could not get jobs or government aid. Also you would have no idea of how many Christians are killed in India including missionaries. Check it out.
    Of course this is has happened in many countries and continues to get worse. The real question is America ready for persecution on their Christian beliefs. Churches have slowly let the government erode our principles and beliefs and now we are seeing the results. It would make me very happy for our country to change back to beliefs of our fore fathers. But more important is when things get really bad in America what people who say they are Christians will be able to stand up for the truth even when real persecution comes to America.

  4. this is a world wide thing. Im from South Africa and im telling you its here also. Its not something that will go away but will rather get worst. A question asked is how many will be able to stand ur for their faith when the time comes and my answer is simple,, NOT MANY!! However blessid are those who are willing to fight and die for what is right and true. I AM A CHRISTIAN AND PROUD OF IT.
