Muslim Persecution of Christians for March 2015


On Sunday, March 15, as Christian churches around the world were celebrating morning mass, two churches in Pakistan—one Catholic, one Protestant—were attacked by Islamic suicide bombers. At least 17 people were killed and over 70 wounded.

The Taliban claimed responsibility. It is believed that the group had hoped for much greater death tolls, as there were almost 2,000 people in both churches at the time of the explosions. …

Central African Republic: At least eight churches were burned in the northern province of Nana Grebizi, after heavily armed Muslim Fulani herdsmen attacked several villages. Two Christians, including a pastor, were killed in the attack; another Christian was severely tortured. After the carnage, the Islamic herdsmen started fires and looted the local population. The blaze destroyed swathes of farmland, at least eight churches, several other mission centers and an unknown number of Christian homes.

Egypt: During the early morning hours of March 9, the Coptic Catholic Church of Kafr el-Dawar was attacked by armed men who used an explosive device against the place of worship.  Two policemen were hospitalized after the attack.  Separately, Dr. Yusuf al-Burhami, a leading cleric in Egypt’s Salafi movement, appeared in a video that surfaced in March saying that “Destroying churches is permissible—as long as the destruction does not bring harm to Muslims, such as false claims that Muslims are persecuting Christians, leading to [foreign] occupations.”  He further added that “the reason we agree to their [churches] being built, via the article in the constitution dealing with worship, and the reason we do not collect the jizya [tribute] from the Christians, is because the condition of Muslims in the current era is well known to the nations of the world—they are weak and deteriorating among the people.” Burhami explained that when the Arab Muslims first conquered Egypt in the 7th century, the ancient nation was Christian, and because the Muslims were few in number, Coptic Christian churches were allowed to remain—“just as the prophet allowed the Jews to remain in Khaibar after he opened [conquered] it, but once Muslims grew in strength and number, [second caliph] Omar al-Khattab drove them out according to the prophet’s command, ‘Drive out the Jews and Christians from the Peninsula.’”

Germany: A potential jihadi attack on the cathedral and synagogue in Bremen was averted following action by police, a Belgian newspaper reported.  Numerous police guarded the cathedral and synagogue and searched a local Muslim cultural center.

    Yet muslims still have the nerve to come to Canada as Victims and some make refugees claims to only set-up shop later and crusade for sharia law that would sanction killing gays and flogging women.

    • People let that happen, though.

      One is not a victim if one sees another person eating a bacon sandwich.

    mosques in the Civilized West should be filled with cement.

    • Exile1981

      nope I think they should be converted into strip clubs and bacon factories

      • mobuyus

        That too.

      • Did you say bacon factories?

        • Exile1981

          Yes, the minarets would make excellent stacks hooked up to the smoking room. There height above all buildings around them would ensure good draw of the smoke and allow for a nice even smoking of the bacon. The main room could be filled with hanging sides of back bacon and the various braziers could house the applewood chips.

          • Even maple-flavoured bacon?

          • Exile1981

            of course.

          • Thank you, Santa!

          • Exile1981

            I fried up a pound of bacon this morning and the kids devoured it before I even got a piece.

          • My wily nephew has his bacon-stealing schtick down-pat.
