Islamist “Cleansing” of Christians in Mideast


arabs-muslimsIslamist terrorists and fanatics are methodically exterminating the 2,000-year-old Christian civilization of the Middle East through oppression, threats, appropriations and deadly violence. Christianity’s greatest thinkers, greatest monuments and greatest triumphs for its first 1,000 years rose in the Middle East. But today, the end is in sight.

In Iraq, the country’s Christian population, estimated at up to 2 million a decade ago, has fallen by half – perhaps by three-quarters. Over 2 million Christians in Syria dread Islamist terror and religious cleansing. Two-thirds of the West Bank’s and more of Gaza’s Christians have been driven out. They’re now a small minority even in Bethlehem. Christians in Iran? Gone. Turkey? Almost gone. Saudi Arabia? Once-thriving Christian and Jewish populations were finished off centuries ago.
Egypt has the region’s largest remaining Christian population, at least 10 million Copts. With rare exceptions, they’ve long been confined to squalid quarters and treated as third-class citizens. Now the Salafist fanatics have been unleashed. Read more here.

  1. Should we be more upset about that than our own communities being long destroyed? Or that even today, they are actively killing Jews in an effort to eliminate us from existance?

    Matzav – please… while we care about human life of ALL humans, there has to be Jewish centric news that is more worthy of publishing than this. Really?

  2. This is a true catastrophe happening in plain sight of the whole world. It seems there is hardly any nation saying or doing anything in opposition. Does this ethnic cleansing not remind us of world silence in the face of the European Holocaust? The crime is unforgivable and the inaction is terrible. Perhaps it shows the extent to which the decades of murderous Islamofascist jihad campaigns have actually succeeded in terrorizing and intimidating the rest of the world into passive submission and silence until now. At least the Jewish world should stand up and be heard as one strong voice against this continuing phenomenon of evil— but where is our voice?
