Christianity ´close to extinction´
in Middle East

The Telegraph (UK), by Edward Malnick

Original Article

Posted By:Jakester2344, 12/23/2012 7:50:39 PM

Christianity faces being wiped out of the “biblical heartlands” in the Middle East because of mounting persecution of worshippers, according to a new report. The study warns that Christians suffer greater hostility across the world than any other religious group. And it claims politicians have been “blind” to the extent of violence faced by Christians in Africa, Asia and the Middle East. The most common threat to Christians abroad is militant Islam, it says, claiming that oppression in Muslim countries is often ignored because of a fear that criticism will be seen as “racism”.

No kidding.

Jewish communities throughout the Middle East that had been there for over 2000 years were mostly purged after 1948 but survived in Iran until just a few years ago.

Now it´s the Christians turn, even in Egypt and Syria, already greatly reduced in Lebanon, not even likely to survive in Iraq, haven´t been many in Pakistan ... ever. And we won´t even ask about Saudi Arabia, will we.

The PC crowd hate Christianity. It has moral values that rise above human imperfections and set a standard for living a holy life. It preaches Love your neighbor. The muzzies hate anything different. I would not be surprized if the PC´s have not cut a deal with them to take over America. Nothing shocks me with the muslin in the WH. I sure shumer and reid would love to be in total control under the authority of SA.

It´s not a fear that criticism will be seen as “racism”, it´s a fear that one will get one´s head lopped off for saying anything critical.

The New of Today!

I unite with other Christians in prayer for those suffering/dying for their faith in Jesus Christ.

One day they will print the same message - Christianity close to extinction for Jesus has returned and took them Home to Heaven! That will be the news to report.

Pray for those in harms way all because of the fear of God´s Love/Grace. Many cannot understand how God can love everyone, even though He does not like/love their actions!

Obama is doing his best to accomplish extinction of Christianity in America and the media/progressives are helping him.


Just review again the Democractic convention of outlawing God and even coming against Israel, God´s people. Guess they haven´t read the Bible or want to believe it.

Pray for America. We need a revival of true Faith, fully coming together to profess Jesus Christ and His Word. Amen

Some Muslim fanatics hate Christians, that is true and proven. But see what Israel is doing to Christians in Palestine ... No difference. Christians are the only solution to Middle East peace. But Some Jews and some Muslims will do anything f possible to get rid of Christians. Google "if Americans knew" and check out their site. BTselem is e Jewish human rights group that is helping.

I wanted to believe that simple observation would be enough to activate the common sense capacity of free citizens. wrong-o.

There is no-one as blind as he, as SHE (emphasis especially after this past election campaign), who chooses to remain thus.

Fox & Friends had a guest on who is a documentary film maker, i think he might have worked with Michael Moore.

He heard about the giant mosque being built in TN (i think). He´d heard about complaints and resistance and thought the people were just bigots. Then he went to investigate and found the truth.

He is now attacked and ostracized by the Left. This is another type of persecution, the object is Truth-seekers.

Bangui (Central African Republic) (AFP) - A mob lynched a Muslim on Friday after he fell off a crowded lorry driving thousands of frightened civilians out of the strife-torn capital of the Central African Republic. A large convoy of lorries and taxis packed with Muslims fleeing Christian vigilantes headed north from Bangui under a slew of insults from angry residents, locals said. The mob set on the victim after he fell off one of the lorries and hacked to pieces his body, which still lay by the side of the road by late morning, an AFP photographer saw.

The 41 employees of Extreme Dodge in Jackson, Mich., are very familiar with trade-ins, but this year they’re learning about trade-offs as they come face to face with the new realities of health care. A few workers say they’re getting a great deal, but most have a severe case of sticker shock. “I feel like I’ve been taken to the cleaners,” said Neal Campbell, a salesman. The news was presented at the company’s annual benefits meeting earlier this month, when employees were told that the health insurance plan that the auto dealership had provided its workers was canceled because it doesn’t comply

CAIRO -- Snow coated domes and minarets Friday as a record Middle East storm compounded the suffering of Syrian refugees, sent the Israeli army scrambling to dig out stranded motorists and gave Egyptians a rare glimpse of snow in their capital. Nearly three feet of snow closed roads in and out of Jerusalem, which is set in high hills, and thousands in and around the city were left without power. Israeli soldiers and police rescued hundreds trapped in their cars by snow and ice. In the West Bank, the branches of olive trees groaned under the weight of snow. In

One driver who emailed News 4 said a deputy and others dressed in safety vests directed drivers to take part and answer questions about alcohol and driving. The study is being conducted by the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration and is supposed to be voluntary.

This morning on "This Week," New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christie brushed off criticism reported in the new book "Double Down" from a member of Mitt Romney´s 2012 vice presidential vetting team, saying his advice was not something he should "give a darn about." "First off, political advice from people who ran the Romney campaign is probably something nobody should really give a darn about, so let´s start with that," Christie told ABC´s George Stephanopoulos. "But secondly, all these issues have been vetted and if I ever run for anything again, they´ll be vetted again." Christie was responding to comments from Ted

Everyone knows why the GOP lost in 2012. Social issues distracted voters from the winning Republican economic message – at least that’s what most people believe. A new report released by American Principles in Action, a 501c4 organization based in Washington, D.C., states that this theory, while widely held, is incorrect. The problem with this belief is two-fold. First, the social issues, if played on offense, actually help Republicans win elections. And secondly, the GOP economic message failed to connect with middle class voters immediate economic concerns.

An Iraq War veteran´s towering SpongeBob SquarePants headstone has been removed from her final resting place because officials at the historic Cincinnati cemetery deemed it inappropriate for their traditional grounds.

CAIRO — After torching a Franciscan school, Islamists paraded three nuns on the streets like "prisoners of war" before a Muslim woman offered them refuge. Two other women working at the school were sexually harassed and abused as they fought their way through a mob. In the four days since security forces cleared two sit-in camps by supporters of Egypt´s ousted president, Islamists have attacked dozens of Coptic churches along with homes and businesses owned by the Christian minority. The campaign of intimidation appears to be a warning to Christians outside Cairo to stand down from political activism. Christians have long

President Obama took his case for ending the sequester to hundreds of disabled veterans Saturday, saying he protected their benefits from the “reckless” cuts to the federal budget but suggesting next year might be different. “It’s hurting our military. I made it clear that your veteran’s benefits are exempt from this year’s sequester,” the president said to the applause of hundreds at the Disabled American Veterans´ convention in Orlando, Fla. “But I want to tell you going forward the best way to protect the VA care you have earned is to get rid of this sequester altogether.”

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million
