The analysis was included as part of a comprehensive report on religious freedom around the world in 2013. The report cited a flood of examples of governments and militant groups cracking down on religious minorities, everywhere from Pakistan to Egypt to China.

“Dire report” my Aunt Minnie's wig. The Department of State is orgasmic that their Muslim buddies are massacring Middle East Christians. Of course we, the United States, could bring the Christians here. But, that would interfere with Dear Leader's State Department directive to import Muslim terrorists and killers to America.
