The endemic rise of Christian persecution in the Middle East was noted in November when Pope Francis declared “We will not resign ourselves to imagining a Middle East without Christians” and stressed the importance of “the universal right to lead a dignified life and freely practice one’s own faith” after he met with patriarchs from Syria, Iran, and Iraq, all countries where Christian minorities are under attack.
On the other hand, powers best placed to do something about the plight of Mideast Christians—namely, the U.S. Obama administration—made it clear that they would do nothing, even when well leveraged to do so.
In November, the wife of American pastor Saeed Abedini, who has been imprisoned in Iran for over a year for practicing Christianity, said she and her family were devastated after learning that the Obama administration did not try to secure the release of her husband as part of the newly signed deal on Iran’s nuclear program.
“The talks over Iran’s nuclear program were seen by his [Abedini’s] family and those representing them as one of the most promising avenues yet for securing his release,” said Fox News. “But the White House confirmed over the weekend that Abedini’s status was not on the table during those talks.”
“I don’t think we have any more leverage,” said Abedini’s wife. “We now have to consider other avenues and having other countries speak out because our country when we could have used our leverage chose to stay silent.”
The rest of November’s roundup of Muslim persecution of Christians around the world includes (but is not limited to) the following accounts, listed by theme and country in alphabetical order, not necessarily according to severity:
When are Whites, Blacks and Christians going to get it through their thick headed passive skulls, that we just can no longer tolerate this mentality, they are not going to assimilate, and more blacks on a daily basis throughout the UK, Europe and the United States are turning and converting to Islam as a source and excuse for their attacks on whites.
Given them no reason, they are burning a swath through everything we hold dear of our Nations and fellow compatriots, caring less about the lives they are destroying and causing harm to, and I aim to help put a stop to it, these are our families and we have a right to protect them, especially when our governments fail to…
I’m sick of this sort of tolerance for what had better be intolerable to us all, for they will turn on all non Muslims at some point, especially so, Jews, Christians and Whites, and that’s a given. I’m of Scots-Irish English, my whiteness is a by product of those ethnicity’s and my ancestries, and I am damn well proud of them and absolutely love the color of my skin and what it means to be white, just as we all should be of our ancestry, especially when they have contributed so much to the lives surrounding us and the world..
I am absolutely no racist, nor a member of the Skin Heads or the KKK, or any other racist organization which I find deplorable. I am simply proud of my fore fathers and that also includes their race, their ethnicity and yes, their skin color. To think our race, ethnicity and color of skin has no basis as to who we are is just ignorance pandering and make me look stupid nonsense. It does make us who we are, it’s the root base of our characters.
We have as a race instilled great things in so many lives throughout the world and our Nations regardless of the ethnicity of those we have shared our good will towards and we should be absolutely proud of that fact. Just as proud as I am of my Christendom, both to which the Muslims want to annihilate and target me for death, because they are intolerant of anyone not like themselves, and have no sanctity what so ever for the innocence of a human life.
What has Islam given us, what for that matter has the Muslim African race given us and the world but suffering and death, they have contributed absolutely nothing to the freedoms and inventiveness that so many other cultures have share with us?
And I am not targeting Blacks as a whole for such offenses, but the proof is that the greater majority of them are an insult even to their own race…
Our silly Governments and Parliaments lend to this stupidity by restricting and regulating their own citizens means of self defense against these types of aggressors, whilst flooding our borders with those who have but one intention in mind, to destroy us, to drain our economies like the leaches that they are and attack those they wrongly claim are oppressing them….and they just happen to be the Jews, White Europeans and Americans, as well as those who are Christians!?
Since 1948, Muslims have murdered over 9.900.000 of their fellow Muslims, do these imbecilic politicians think for a damn moment that these Muslims would give a rats flying ass about us? Stupid reprobated SOBs to the very last one of them will be damned for their murderous actions against us, and they are just as complacent and compliant as the so called moderate Muslims are…
Muslims have killed; 80 million Hindus_10 million Buddhist_60 million Christians_and 270 million Jews and this is not even counting the non believers, or the non adherent of their cult, and they are openly practicing slavery to this very day, to which ironically, most of their slaves are Africans, and they want us to foolishly believe these mothers sons of hut jumping sand monkeys are a peaceful lot. Yea right, and Chaz Bono desperately wants breast implants as well!?If you Muslims pedophile goat raping braying bastards bring this hatred to the Southern States of America…. I swear to you, there will be such a Consequential wrath laid upon you mothers sons and daughters of Islam by us Southerners that you will beg God the almighty to put your worthless sorry asses to the death!
We will not stand idly by and watch you beat defenseless or overwhelmed individuals in this manner.
We have aplenty of swamps to feed your stinky carcases to, so you just come here and dare us!
