Skip to comments.The U.S. and Christian Persecution
Posted on 01/21/2014 6:18:29 AM PST by Truth29
Prominent indicators confirm that the U.S. is the chief facilitator of the persecution of Christians around the world today.p
According to the recently released 2014 World Watch List, which ranks the 50 nations where Christians are most persecuted, Syria is the third worst nation in the world in which to be Christian, Iraq is fourth, Afghanistan fifth, and Libya 13th. All four countries receive the strongest designation, extreme persecution (other designations are severe, moderate, and sparse persecution).p
Aside from being so closely and harshly ranked, these four nations have something else in common: heavy U.S. involvement. Three Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya were liberated thanks to U.S. forces, while in the fourth, Syria, the U.S. is actively sponsoring freedom fighters against the regime, many of whom would be better labeled terrorists.

I don’t think it is accidental.
Not the U.S. The hussein administration.
I’m just waking up, so forgive me for posting someone else’s reply from NR comments. She said what I was thinking:
“Persecution of minorities and those who do not follow islam in majority islamic countries has been going on a long time, U.S. involvement in these countries is incidental and a distraction. The regimes and people of these countries are responsible, not the US. Christians, muslims, and other religions get on fine in the US Mr Ibrahim, just fine. This article appears to absolve those responsible; the muslims who are persecuting and terrorising christians, and before them jews.... Another example is that much quoted paragon of “islamic democracy” indonesia, Christians don’t do so well there either.... This article is a distraction from the reality. Many of us may not be keen on the Obama administration but we know where the responsibility for persecution of Christians lies.”—sarah_13
Not citizens of the U.S.
With Obama and his minions in control, I believe his assessment is accurate.
We’ve been doing this since Wilson demolished the Austro-Hungarian empire.
I don’t disagree, per se, but I liked her comment as it put responsibility right back on the truly guilty—Islam’s murderers.
Silence from the White House because Obama DID SAY that when “things turn ugly” in the Middle East, he will choose the muslim side.
Yes they are the guilty party and they are being facilitated by the current U.S. Administration. Both are eaually guilty parties.
