We are living through one of the largest persecutions of a religious group in history.
Few people realize that we are today living through the largest persecution of Christians in history, worse even than the famous attacks under ancient Roman emperors like Diocletian and Nero. Estimates of the numbers of Christians under assault range from 100-200 million. According to one estimate, a Christian is martyred every five minutes. And most of this persecution is taking place at the hands of Muslims.
In Crucified Again, Ibrahim performs two invaluable functions for educating people about the new Great Persecution, to use the label of the Roman war against Christians. First, he documents hundreds of specific examples from across the Muslim world. By doing so, he shows the extent of the persecution, and forestalls any claims that it is a marginal problem. Additionally, Ibrahim commemorates the forgotten victims, refusing to allow their suffering to be lost because of the indifference or inattention of the media and government officials.
Second, he provides a cogent explanation for why these attacks are concentrated in Muslim nations. In doing so, he corrects the delusional wishful thinking and apologetic spin that mars much of the current discussion of Islamic-inspired violence.
Ibrahims copious reports of violence against Christians range across the whole Muslim world, including countries such as Indonesia, which is frequently characterized as moderate and tolerant.

Take a look at what the muzzie in the white hut is doing to Christians right here in "The Land of the Free".
The thing that really pisses me off is that nothing is being said about this persecution - even in churches!
Christians all have their faults, but are forgiven. One of mine is I won't turn the other cheek!
Speaking strictly as a lifelong atheist: I’ll bet if enough American Christians and maybe even some atheists were to stand up and once to raise high holy heck, Congress could be persuaded to stop giving our hard-earned tax dollars in so-called “foreign aid” to overtly anti-Christian regimes.
America has been making war on Christian civilization for at least a century. It's what we do. This is nothing new.
This persecution of Christians has been going on for so long that our “Christian” congresscretins have forgotten about it long ago.
They’re the only ones who could be effective in protesting this daily murder and injustice, but they rather keep quiet, keep their jobs, and not be known as radical Christians.
They’re being persecuted right here. We now have a city in Texas which states that Christians may not run for elected office.
Since 622 AD!
Is 1391 years long enough?
Do 270,000,000 deaths prove anything?
How many years and how many deaths will it take for non-Moslems to get the word?
They will either convert us or kill us!
And, they are doing just that!
And, they are doing it 24/7/365, while we stand around trying to make nice with an evil death cult!
How is that working out for us?
What do Moslems have to do to get the attention of the Western World?
Well, they probably will figure out how to replicate that day, Real Soon Now!

It’s not a bug, it’s a feature.
