Muslim persecution of Christians: A 1,400 year tradition

Muslim persecution of Christians exists in 40 nations today as part of a continuum — or “tradition” — that started nearly 14 centuries ago. A new study shows a horrific reality that you just won’t read in our mainstream media

The one glaring fact concerning the persecution of approximately 100 million Christians around the world today is that the overwhelming majority of it is being committed by Muslims of all races, nationalities, languages, and socio-political circumstances.

Muslims from among America’s allies (Saudi Arabia) and from its enemies (Iran); Muslims from economically rich nations (Qatar) and from poor nations (Somalia and Yemen); Muslims from “Islamic republic” nations (Afghanistan) and from “moderate” nations (Malaysia and Indonesia); Muslims from nations rescued by America (Kuwait) and Muslims from nations claiming “grievances” against the U.S. (fill in the blank __).

This fact is underscored in Open Doors’ recent 2015 World Watch List — a report that highlights and ranks the 50 worst nations persecuting Christians.

It finds that “Islamic extremism” is the main source of persecution in 40 of the top 50 countries — that is, 80 percent of the nations where Christians are persecuted are Muslim.
