Persecution of Christian minorities is happening all over the Muslim world - and many Muslim minorities are suffering persecution themselves in non-Muslim countries....

Through the centuries man has persecuted and killed his fellow man because he worshipped the same God, but by a different name. Or even the same God by the same name, but a different ideology. All oblivious to the fact that God is love and love is of God.

This sad story is so reminicent of Jews hoping against the reality of their situation in Poland and Germany in the 1930s.

whenever and wherever atrocities arise, be it authority tolerated or rebels initiated, definitely there is news block out to cover up for what really is happening to civilian citizens...leakage of these incidents though is never stopped, thank God, for victims of such incidents badly and immediately need help.but how can help be extended to them when people of good heart and even volunteers are blocked of their entry into the country...we all believe in God, that I'd like to's just that we have varied perception of who God is and the traditions and cultures that go with it is of course another thing...with this in view, can't we not just leave our brothers on how they profess their faith, according to what they believe in?

What a sad situation! Especially for the children that are dying over there. Children should not die before their time.

Christians are being ethnically cleansed in every Muslim occupied land (which were mostly Christian before the Muslim invasion and conquest) today and hardly a peep about it all. Even so-called Christian 'leaders' don't care. Some Christian leaders from this area, around Syria, came last year to visit Pres. Obama and beg him to help them and he refused to even meet with them! Yet he's surrounded himself with 'advisers' from the Muslim Brotherhood, a sworn enemy of the West which has in its agenda that they want to 'destroy western civilization from within' and force us all under Islam's intolerant rule. Where's the outrage?

If someone wants to burn a Qur'an the media, Obama and our other 'leaders' all scream about it and it makes headlines worldwide, but millions of Christians, Buddhists, Hindus and others are being murdered, tortured, driven out of their homes and businesses, having their places of worship closed/destroyed and no one cares. How warped is this?

Hereare statistics on the persecution of Christians worldwide now - the most persecuted religious group in the world. You'll see that every Muslim dominated country is on the list of persecutors with only a few non-Muslim lands on the list. Turkey, for some reason is missing, but that could be that they have exterminated already their Christian population in Ataturk's genocide of 3 million Christians last century (they're still destroying the few remaining churches of the over 3000 before the genocide - the first time the word was used, and the US and West turned a blind eye to this one too). No Muslim country has freedom of religion, speech, conscience or press - Allah forbids it.

It is important to note that Nigeria, Uganda and Kenya are on the list, and are not Muslim majority countries, BUT they have significant Muslims minorities that are committing jihad against Christians with near impunity:

Where is the outrage? Nowhere. Care2 certainly doesn't shed a tear for any of these victims, not do any other mainstream media, or western leaders, but they can't scramble fast enough to defend Muslim atrocities and oppression. Funny that.

The Muslims on both sides are killing them and they are being used as shields.

They can thank Obama for providing the Muslim Brotherhood the weapons to kill the Assyrians and take over the country. However appalling Assad is when it comes to human rights, the Christians were part of the community.

But, as so many say, they are Christians and who the hell in the UN cares?
