The U.S. and Christian Persecution
National Review Online ^ | January 18, 2014 | Raymodn Ibrahim

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.

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

That reply is incomplete. Muslim societies are the most stable when they are autocratic or dictatorial. Mubarak, Qaddafi, and Assad all protected Christian and womens’ rights more than the Islamists that followed them or the US backed terrorists who seek to topple Assad. Obama has spread chaos and persecution wherever he has meddled in Muslim societies. He is not alone in this, but he is the most open in his attempt to create the Greater Caliphate and Islamize all that he can.

His statement is: the U.S. is the chief facilitator of the persecution of Christians around the world today.

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.
