Defiant Christians in hateful Muslim countries risk punishment by posting festive photos on Facebook as part of anti-persecution campaign #MyTreedom

Families celebrating Christmas in countries where these customs are forbidden are defiantly sharing their pictures on Facebook.

The My Treedom page set up by foreign affairs journalist Lisa Daftari, from Los Angeles, shows the people who are going to extreme lengths to be festive even in countries where Christians can be killed for their faith.

It includes a woman who smuggled a Christmas tree into Saudi Arabia, a family decorating the tree after escaping Pakistan and festive revellers close to ISIS strongholds.

    “Iranian children celebrate Christmas despite threat of punishment by hate filled Muslims in Iran”
    I was struck by this caption, Hate filled muslims is redundant.

    • True enough, Islam is a murderously intolerant cult.

    These Christians are willing to lay down their lives for their belief in Christ; the remaining Christians in the fading West – not so much.

    • Most of the pseudo-christians seek to import Islamic hatred.

    Idiots in today’s Toronto Star have a photo of a bunch of hijab clad Muslima’s in Bethlehem sitting on the steps of the Church of the Nativity. Yup nothing says Christmas like a bunch of hijab clad Muslimas..

    They humble and shame for my meager efforts to keep or culture,traditions and religion strong as I sit here listening to Carols.

    But it has NOTHING to do with islam or muslims.
    Obama wants to comfort the children as they get beheaded by muslims praising allah and will know that sialm has nothing to do with it.
