Muslim persecution of Christians Muslim-Christian Relations Srdja Trifkovic



The Disappearing Middle Eastern Christians

by Srdja Trifkovic • September 4, 2012 • Printer-friendly

Fourteen centuries of Islam have fatally undermined Christianity in the land of its birth. The decline of the Christian remnant in the Middle East has been accelerated in recent decades, and accompanied by the indifference of the post-Christian West to its impending demise. Once-thriving Christian communities are now tiny minorities, and in most countries of the region their percentages have been reduced to single digits. Whether they disappear completely will partly depend on Western leaders belatedly taking an interest in Christian plight and persecution. This seems most unlikely, as the examples of Iraq, Egypt and Syria demonstrate.

In Syria the Obama administration is fully committed to supporting the rebels, although it should be well aware of the ideological outlook and long-term objectives of Bashar al-Assad’s foes. They are Sunni fundamentalists. The partnerships forged thus far are ominous. The New York Times reported last June that CIA officers are operating secretly in southern Turkey, deciding which Syrian opposition fighters across the border will receive arms. The weapons are being funneled across the Turkish border “by way of a shadowy network of intermediaries including Syria’s Muslim Brotherhood.”

  1. Now we have the news that the US state dept has conveniently removed Human rights violations from its watch, in new Arab Spring countries.

    The US State Department has quietly ceased cataloging violations of religious freedom in its “Country Reports on Human Rights.” Of course, it’s just a coincidence that this comes at a time when Washington is allying with radical Islamists in Libya, Syria, and Iraq. As CNS reports:

    “The U.S. State Department removed the sections covering religious freedom from the Country Reports on Human Rights that it released on May 24, three months past the statutory deadline Congress set for the release of these reports.

    “The new human rights reports–purged of the sections that discuss the status of religious freedom in each of the countries covered–are also the human rights reports that include the period that covered the Arab Spring and its aftermath. US Foreign Policy vs. Middle Eastern Christianity

    In other words, the persecution of Christians in Muslim countries will not be noted by anyone. They will be wiped out quietly.

    The US has gone from the most fervent supporter of the most vile, depraved theocratic Islamic state in the world- Saudi Arabia, to now become also the one that does not want the world to know that it, and its ally are responsible for the destruction of Christianity at its source. Treacherous and Shameless. Saudi Arabia can be forgiven as it is merely doing what the koran requires it to do – the removal of all religions but Islam from Arabia.

  2. “Fourteen centuries of Islam have fatally undermined Christianity in the land of its birth”

    No, Israel has the only growing Christian population in the region. It is the lands surrounding the original Christian homeland, whereever Muslims are the majority, that have seriously and rapidly declining populations (except in Saudi where Christians, like Jews, have no right to build Churches).
