Muslims Eradicating Christians Throughout the Middle-East
by Moody Adams For too long, Christians have lived in a bubble, according to Christian Solidarity International-USA President John Eibner.
“The series of public events was initiated in response to the need for CSI to issue a genocide warning regarding the Christians of the Islamic Middle East,” Eibner said.
“We did so because we could clearly see that the conditions for eradication of Christian communities in the region existed, and that the likelihood of genocide was heightened by the forces of intolerant Muslim supremacism that were unleashed as a result of the so-called Arab Spring,” Eibner said.
Half of the one million Christians in Iraq were forced to flee the country and the other half has been displaced. The situation in Syria and Egypt is similar.
“There are many parallels between the plight of Christians today in the Islamic Middle East and that of Jews in Central Europe in the 1920s and 30s, and in both cases the U.S. government and mainstream media, with few exceptions, tended to play down the threat of genocide, which complicated other American interests,” Eibner said.
“Missionary groups need to reevaluate their missionaries’ security as the sovereignty of embassies is no longer respected by these Islamic groups,” Christian Emergency Network President Mary Marr said.
“Threat activity has increased both domestically and globally in the past 10 years. The Middle East is particularly risky for missionaries,” … Christians have fallen into the proverbial trap of believing that the government will save them,” Marr said.
