Persecution of Christians

Ayaan Hirsi Ali Has Gone Mainstream With Our Message

Citizen Warrior 7 March 2012

I DON'T KNOW HOW she did it, but Ali has an article in the February 13 issue of Newsweek. Not only that, but it's the cover story! The cover says simply, "The War on Christians." The name of the article is this gem: "The Rise of Christophobia."

She makes some great points in the article, including an admonition to pay attention to the differences in "intolerance." The "intolerance" in the West comes in the form of cartoons, films, and writings. The intolerance against Christians in the Muslim world is expressed with knives, guns, and grenades.

A New Year of ‘Dhimmitude’ for Egypt’s Copts

FrontPage Magazine 20 February 2012
By Raymond Ibrahim

The following article was first published by the Stonegate Institute.

For Egypt’s Christian Copts, the New Year began with threats that their churches would be attacked during Christmas mass (celebrated on January 7).  Because many were eyeing the situation—several Coptic churches were previously attacked, including last Christmas (eight dead) and New Year’s day (23 dead), not to mention ominous harbingers around the world, such as the Nigerian Christmas day church bombings (40 dead) —the Muslim Brotherhood proclaimed it would "protect” the Copts during their church services.  Happily, Coptic Christmas came and went without incident.
