ISLAM: The mass exodus of Christians from the Muslim world
By Raymond Ibrahim
May 07, 2013
A mass exodus of Christians is currently underway. Millions of Christians are being displaced from one end of the Islamic world to the other.
We are reliving the true history of how the Islamic world, much of which prior to the Islamic conquests was almost entirely Christian, came into being.
The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom recently said: "The flight of Christians out of the region is unprecedented and it's increasing year by year." In our lifetime alone "Christians might disappear altogether from Iraq, Afghanistan, and Egypt."
Ongoing reports from the Islamic world certainly support this conclusion: Iraq was the earliest indicator of the fate awaiting Christians once Islamic forces are liberated from the grip of dictators.
NEW YORK: AFDI Calls for Closure of Mosques That Breed Jihad Terror
April 29, 2013
The human rights organization American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) has called upon government and law enforcement authorities to close three U.S. mosques that have been established as breeding grounds for jihad terror.
The call follows the issuance last week of AFDI's 18-point Platform for Defending Freedom, which offered practical steps to protect the nation from jihad terror in the wake of the Boston jihad bombings.
Those 18 points included a call for "immediate investigation into foreign mosque funding in the West and for new legislation making foreign funding of mosques in non-Muslim nations illegal," as well as for "surveillance of mosques and regular inspections of mosques in the U.S. and other non-Muslim nations to look for pro-violence materials. Any mosque advocating jihad or any aspects of Sharia that conflict with Constitutional freedoms and protections should be closed."
Radical Christianity vs. Radical Islam
By Trevor Thomas

Just what is a "radical Christian"? And how does he compare to the radical Muslims we hear so much about?
Finally, Bill Maher got something right. Following the Boston bombings, Maher responded to Brian Levy, the director of the Center for the Study of Hate & Extremism at California State University in San Bernardino (a great example of needed reforms in public higher education), "[T]here's only one faith, for example, that kills you or wants to kill you if you draw a bad cartoon of the prophet. There's only one faith that kills you or wants to kill you if you renounce the faith."
Syria's beleaguered Christians
Christians make up about 10% of Syria's 22 million people
April 23, 2103
Syria's Christian community is one of the oldest in the world, going back two millennia.
The apostle Paul is said to have been converted on the road to Damascus, while some Christians from the town of Maaloula can still speak Aramaic, the language of Jesus.
Near the northern city of Aleppo is the Church of St Simeon Stylites, who spent decades on top of a stone pillar to demonstrate his faith, while in the mountains west of Homs is the castle of Krak des Chevaliers, which was a fortress for the Knights Hospitaller during the Crusades.
SYRIA: Metropolitans Boulos Yazigi and Mor Youhanna Ibrahim kidnapped outside Aleppo, driver murdered
By Pamela Geller

I have warned since the jihadists began agitating in Syria that there will be a genocide of Christians and Alawites of unimaginable proportions should Assad lose control.
Two Metropolitans were kidnapped, their driver murdered in Syria. A Metroplitan is the head of an ecclesiastical province, ranking between archbishop and patriarch. Obama is backing and arming the jihadists in Syria. Once again, Obama backs the Islamic supremacist horse -- every time. He is consistent in this.

Thanks to the editors at http://www.answeringmuslims.com/ here are some of the commands from Allah to Muslims on how they must treat non-Muslims.
Qur'an 3:32-Say: Obey Allah and the Apostle; but if they turn back, then surely Allah does not love the unbelievers.
Qur'an 5:51-O you who believe. do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.
Qur'an 9:29-Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the Religion of Truth, from among the People of the Book (read Jews and Christians who believe in the Old Testament), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
