The most persecuted religious group in the world is… drum roll please

In 2016 a Christian was killed for their faith every 6 minutes.

…Nearly 90,000 Christians were killed for their faith in 2016, equivalent to one every six minutes, according to a new study by the Italy-based Center for Studies on New Religions (Censur). The annual study, which is set for release next month, also indicated that between 500 and 600 million Christians were prevented from freely practicing their faith.

The nightmare of being a Christian in the left supported paradise of Palestine

The lefties say they are all about women’s rights, gay rights and religious freedom but they hate Israel which is the only country in the Middle East that has all three. Palestine, the poster child for every leftist’s cause de jour, on the other hand, is revealed in an interview to be persecuting and subjugating Christians and stealing their land!

Without question, Samir Qumsieh is one of the most courageous Christian leaders in the Middle East. Qumsieh is one of the few willing to risk his life to speak out against Muslim persecution of Christians in the Palestinian territories and the Middle East, generally.

For the past four decades, Samir Qumsieh…has fought for the rights of the region’s miniscule Palestinian Christian minority. He has even dared to speak out against the subjugation of Christians living under the rule of Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

The plight of the Christians living under the Palestinian Authority and Hamas is a subject truly taboo. Yet Qumsieh perseveres – and pays the price. He regularly receives death threats, and he has been the target of a petrol bomb attack. Muslim extremists have also distributed leaflets in the Bethlehem area condemning him for his outspoken views and activities on behalf of persecuted Christians.

Alabama discriminate against non-Muslim women who wear head scarves

Now I may not like all the concessions the West give to followers of Islam but I always assumed that at least the West would be consistent. If they upheld the religious freedom of a Muslim woman to wear a Hijab at work then, of course, they would not object to a Sikh wearing a turban because fair is fair right? Wrong. In Alabama, Muslim women get preferential treatment. There is one law for non-Muslim women and another law for Muslim women.

From the complaint in Allen v. English:

Plaintiff Yvonne Allen is a devout Christian woman who covers her hair with a headscarf as part of her religious practice. In December 2015, Ms. Allen sought to renew her driver license at the Lee County driver license office, where officials demanded that she remove her head covering to be photographed. When Ms. Allen explained her religious beliefs, the County officials responded with a remarkable claim: They admitted that there was a religious accommodation available for head coverings, but contended that it applied only to Muslims.

Ad in Canada offering protection to threatened Muslim women is banned

Freedom of expression exists in Canada but only for Muslims. This is not the first time that advertisers have refused to run ads that they consider anti-Islamic but have been happy to run ads offensive to non-Muslims. In this latest case, the ad’s purpose was to help Muslim women. Mentioning the reality of honour killing, however, is not allowed because the ad company thinks that the truth is offensive.

In a court hearing scheduled to begin in September, the City of Edmonton will have to justify its silencing of a non-profit group that wants to promote gender equality and protect Canadian women and girls from honour killings.

Native Germans flee Germany to escape mass Muslim migration

Germany is in crisis and it is totally self inflicted. There are the Germans who seem determined to be blind deaf and dumb  to what is happening and then there are those who recognise what is happening and have not stayed to fight for what they see as a lost cause. This has to be the easiest Muslim invasion history has ever seen.  No need to officially declare war on the Christian infidels, just turn up in record numbers and bleed their economy dry, make your demands and drive the ones who realise what you are doing out of their country with your intolerance and aggression towards them.

More Christians are fleeing Germany for “Muslim free” countries like Hungary to escape “aggressive migrants” who have poured into their homeland.
A report by Hungary Today details how the process of “reverse migration” is beginning to unfold, with the area around Lake Balaton, where properties can be purchased for just 14,000 euros, becoming a popular retreat for German families desperate to leave.
“People say they’ve had enough of things getting worse and worse in Germany, and they hail Orbán’s policies,” said German estate agent Ottmar Heide (pictured below), referring to Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s decision to close his country’s borders to migrants last year.

According to Heide, 80 per cent of his clients are people from Germany fleeing their country to escape the consequences of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s open door migration policy. Around 30,000 Germans now live in the area, a significant increase since last year.
German couple Valentin and Jennifer Duräder explicitly stated that they were moving to Hungary because they feared Muslim migrants.

While many in the media would be quick to label this prejudice,  bigotry and Islamophobia the fact that the  couple used the word fear paints a different picture.  I am not prejudiced  against  Mormons but if  I and my children were regularly abused and threatened on the street by Mormon migrants and violence and rape was regularly happening in my hometown committed by Mormon criminals, I would want to move too.

The World’s most persecuted minority: Christians

The Blame game in America has reached peak stupidity

the-blame-game-pointing-fingers

 

Who you gonna Blame for the Orlando Islamic terrorist attack?

Scapegoat number ONE: The NRA

“The greatest threat to our homeland security today is the National Rifle Association, a front group for the firearms industry that derails gun-safety measures and perversely profits with each new mass shooting.”

Scapegoat number TWO:Christians

‘”The ISIS thing is a distraction,” Katz says, arguing that we should instead be “looking at the long legacy of anti-gay violence in this country that has itself been stoked and promoted by the Christian right.” The central problem, he says, is not to be found in “the Middle East,” but at home where the “homophobia problem” exists.’

Scapegoat number THREE: Gun control

“Chris Murphy, D-Connecticut, who said blame for mass shootings lies with Congress for its failure to enact stricter gun control measures.”

Scapegoat number FOUR: The Republican Party

“This was an American killing Americans because they were queer and that has not been forcefully articulated,” Jonathan Katz said in a news release put out by the school. “What we are trying to do here is camouflage the root of the problem, which is a long history of violent political rhetoric and homophobic policies by Republican officials and their conservative allies.”

Scapegoat number FIVE: Gays 

“The LGBT cause has blood on its hands. These deaths were caused by a paradoxical alliance between the left and Islam”

Egypt goes all ‘Game of Thrones’ on an innocent seventy year old woman

29A0970A00000578-3125348-image-a-59_1434399546033

Actress Lena Headey in a still from Game Of Thrones

Game of Thrones is set in a make believe medieval world where violence, rape and brutality are common place. In one famous scene the young king’s mother is forced to do a naked walk of shame by the head of the church who has seized power from the crown. In an unbelievable parallel in 2016 an elderly woman has been forced to do a naked walk of shame because of the alleged actions of her son.

A grandmother was stripped naked and paraded around her village in Upper Egypt after rumours spread that her son, a Christian man, had an affair with a married Muslim woman.

Seven homes of Christians were torched by a Muslim mob after the accusations against the son of Soad Thabet, 70, sparked the latest sectarian strife in Egypt.

Nagwa Ragab, the Muslim housewife at the centre of the dispute, has denied being involved with Thabet’s son in the small village of al-Karm in Minya, a poor province around 300 kilometres south of Cairo and home to the largest Christian community in Egypt.

Christians, most of them from the Coptic Orthodox church, make up around 12 per cent of Egypt’s population of 90 million.

Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, who became president through a military coup in 2014, has often avoided referring to such incidents, preferring to stress the importance of harmony between communities.
But the Soad Thabet case has drawn such attention that he felt compelled to address it in a nationally televised speech, saying: “Anyone who wronged, no matter how many they are, must be held accountable. I hope that this Egyptian woman is not too incensed, neither she nor the rest of Egyptian women, for what happened.”

He hopes she is not too incensed?

UN does not recognise genocide against Christians in the Middle East

The ACLJ has announced a seven-point plan to advance the cause of Christians persecuted by the Islamic State (ISIS.) They have urged U.N.Secretary-General Ban ki-Moon to recognize the genocide against Christians and to take decisive action and to press the relevant U.N. offices and bodies to do the same. The plan calls for…

  1. U.N. leadership to recognize the genocide against Christians;

  2. The U.N. Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide to fulfill its role as a catalyst;

  3. The U.N. Security Council to take the necessary steps to stop the genocide, including referrals for prosecution;

  4. International intervention to protect Christians as Iraq and Syria are failing to do so;

  5. U.S. authorities to aggressively urge the U.N. to take the above-described steps;

  6. Establishment of in-region safe zones for genocide victims; and

  7. A more effective international coalition to defeat ISIS militarily.

The ACLJ have previously run a successful campaign to get the Secretary of State John Kerry to recognise ISIS’s atrocities targeting Christians as genocide so they have now turned to the U.N. which so far, has not recognised the ongoing slaughter of Christians in the Middle East as genocide.
