The Mass Exodus of Christians from the Muslim World

Muslim conquered and occupied territory would seem more appropriate. via The Mass Exodus of Christians from the Muslim World |

A mass exodus of Christians is currently underway. Millions of Christians are being displaced from one end of the Islamic world to the other.

We are reliving the true history of how the Islamic world—much of which prior to the Islamic conquests was almost entirely Christian—came into being.

The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom recently said: “The flight of Christians out of the region is unprecedented and it’s increasing year by year.”  In our lifetime alone “Christians might disappear altogether from Iraq, Afghanistan, and Egypt.”

Ongoing reports from the Islamic world certainly support this conclusion.  Iraq was the earliest indicator of the fate awaiting Christians once Islamic forces are liberated from the grip of dictators.

In 2003, Iraq’s Christian population was at least one million.  Today fewer than 400,000 remain—the result of an anti-Christian campaign that began with the U.S. occupation of Iraq, when countless Christian churches were bombed and countless Christians killed, including by crucifixion and beheading.

The 2010 Baghdad church attack, which saw nearly 60 Christian worshippers slaughtered, is the tip of a decade-long iceberg.

Now as the U.S. supports the jihad on secular president Assad, the same pattern has come to Syria: entire regions and towns where Christians lived centuries before Islam came into being have now been emptied, as the opposition targets Christians for kidnapping, plundering, and beheadings, all in compliance with mosque calls that it’s a “sacred duty” to drive Christians away.

In Egypt, some 100,000 Christian Copts have fled their homeland soon after the “Arab Spring.”  In September 2012, the Sinai’s small Christian community was attacked and evicted by al-Qaeda linked Muslims, Reuters reported.

But even before that, the Coptic Orthodox Church lamented the “repeated incidents of displacement of Copts from their homes, whether by force or threat. Displacements began in Ameriya [62 Christian families evicted], then they stretched to Dahshur [120 Christian families evicted], and today terror and threats have reached the hearts and souls of our Coptic children in Sinai.”

Iraq, Syria, and Egypt are the Arab world.  But even in “black” African and “white” European nations with Muslim majorities, Christians are fleeing.

In Mali, after a 2012 Islamic coup, as many as 200,000 Christians fled.  According to reports, “the church in Mali faces being eradicated,” especially in the north “where rebels want to establish an independent Islamist state and drive Christians out… there have been house to house searches for Christians who might be in hiding, church and Christian property has been looted or destroyed, and people tortured into revealing any Christian relatives.” At least one pastor was beheaded.

Even in European Bosnia, Christians are leaving en mass “amid mounting discrimination and Islamization.”  Only 440,000 Catholics remain in the Balkan nation, half the prewar figure.  Problems cited are typical:  “while dozens of mosques were built in the Bosnian capital Sarajevo, no building permissions were given for Christian churches.”

“Time is running out as there is a worrisome rise in radicalism,” said one authority, who further added that the people of Bosnia-Herzegovina were “persecuted for centuries” after European powers “failed to support them in their struggle against the Ottoman Empire.”

And so history repeats itself.

One can go on and on:

And for those willing to ignore history preferring the fantastic lies we tell ourselves about moderate Islam, this will also be the fate of non-Muslims in America during this century. It has already begun.

  1. Islam is the worlds biggest problem: Billions being indoctrinated with hate and insanity 5 times a day from birth. Now even America is being corrupted by this vile concept. From the very top of government down to the school teacher islam is being forced on society. As the islamistts grow in number they want ever more power till all other societies are destroyed. Islam deserves no more consideration than fire ants or wasps.

  2. Now all Muslims return to their countries.Just get out of AMERICA. wer will take every Christians out of your countries ,show us the same curticy.

    • Courtesy. Correct spelling.

      • correcting spelling is a way of getting around responding to the remark. so if it is spelled correctly will you respond to it? When will Muslims return the COURTESY of getting out of America. We do not need lying murderers here.(read the koran..all muslims believe same book do they not..therefore there is no such thing as a moderate muslim.. you either ARE or you ARE NOT.. if you ARE then you believe ALL the CRAP in the KORAN…and have to live by it or suffer some severe punishment.. lol… what a piece of work that book is.. more like some evil cult..)

        • i realized you were correcting your own spelling.. lol… but to whomever you were asking .. i would LOVE to hear the answer from WHOMEVER you were asking .. why do they not leave.. ( I know it is because their religion believes they must try to convert the entire world or kill everyone who does not..again..koran).

  3. From the article: “We are reliving the true history of how the Islamic world—much of which prior to the Islamic conquests was almost entirely Christian—came into being.”

    And let us not forget HOW prior to Islam it became almost entirely Christian. Yes, that’s right, by doing the exact same thing that Islam is doing now. Conquest. Murder. Invasion. Torture. Rape. Burnings. Hangings. Beheadings. Forced conversions upon pain of death. Treating non-Christians as third class entities. Not just in the pre-Muslim world but all OVER the world including the Americas, Australia, Europe, etc.

    Seriously guys, stop being so blind to your own history. Stop denying it, and stop demanding me to go look it up for you. Go look it up yourselves, it’s not that difficult, it’s called Google. Didn’t any of you ever take history class at ANY level? Or go out and learn on your own about your history?

    Normally I wouldn’t mention such things, but am always jibed to do so by the ignorant hypocritical fundamentalist Christians posting on this site on a daily basis, deriding Muslims for doing the EXACT same things worldwide that THEIR religion has taught and done.

    No? How about ‘Manifest Destiny’, anyone? BIG Christian central doctrine there, and used to invade every nation, every people it could. And did. God-given right, no less. Gee, sound familiar guys? Heard it anywhere else lately?

    Same, same, only the religion of the people doing it has changed. History repeats again and again. We’re seeing Islam take over now from where Christianity had invaded and taken over. The cycle continues.

    • I’d like to see what evidence you have that Christians, were responsible for what you allege in your statement. There are many false Christians at least they claim to be Christians. But if one follows the teaching of Jesus Christ one would not do what you allege. While your at it look up passages in the Koran, that might convince you that you have more to fear from muslims than Christians.

    • To ‘YouKnowIt’sNOTTrue’ – I’ve dealt with you BEFORE!

      YOU ARE SUCH A DAMNED LIAR!!!! (You can take that any way you like!)

      Christians and Jews have always been the persecuted minorities since time immemorial–and on rare occasions they have actually stood up to their persecutors. They have never been terrorists or oppressors!!!!!

      STOP ACTING LIKE A KNOW-IT-ALL — YOU SICKO!!!!!

      • the reason “youknowitsnottrue” cannot give you any links to proofs of the blatant lies of horrible things christians were supposedly doing in the past.. (which any christian knows the christianity does not work that way or ever do behaviors like that to further their beliefs..ever) ..well the reason “youkowitsnottrue” want everyone else to ‘look up on google’ proof to back the facts is because this person KNOWS there is NO proof because it NEVER happened. christians dont behead and murder .. its not the way to ‘bring in the sheep’.. christians try to talk and share information.. and the new person can read all about it in the bible and decide.. and christians do not believe in deceiving people to get them to join.. as the koran blatantly says to lie to get what you want to happen.. and christianity does not say to kill all who do not believe.. ummm i think the koran says it all.. about who is evil and who is expected to do evil actions to people who do not believe and join..

        • To ‘gladtohavefreedomofopinionandproudtobeanamerican’ – THANKS!!! YA’LL IS A SAINT!!!!!

          And, truth be told, even if some heinous atrocities were committed in the name of Christ, we Christians know that TRUE CHRISTIANS DO NOT COMMIT ATROCITIES–TRUE CHRISTIANS ARE DISCIPLES OF JESUS CHRIST–THE PUREST, MOST HOLY AND GRACIOUS LOVING INDIVIDUAL WHO EVER WALKED THE FACE OF THE EARTH. AHEMMMM–GOD INCARNATE!!!!!

          KNOW JESUS–KNOW LIFE! NO JESUS–NO LIFE!!!!!

  4. The Arab spring is also an Arab winter, it takes them back to the stone ages in mentality and culture, unfortunately with modern means. For the Christians it is truly a spring to leave for freedom, and democracy,

  5. Where can they run? Most of the middle east is Muslim. The Muslims in Europe and the US should return to their beloved countries and take their laws with them. Islam is not a religion but a way of life. They do not believe in religious freedom. You are either with them or against them. They feel they are entitled to void the world of all non-believers. I would like them to be happy in their world and stay out of mine!

    • ANY NON ISLAMIC COUNTRY THAT ALLOWS MUSLIMS ON THEIR GROUNDS, THAT NATION DUG THEIR OWN GRAVES

    • Basically I agree with you, but of course muslims are in Europe as part of their agenda–to turn us into muslims, or kill us.

      There’s a reason why they want to do this; muslims, for their 1400 yr existence have always had slaves, and now in the 21st century they see the world running away from them, advancing, while they are mired a thousand years back in time.

      Some bright spark (bright, a muslim?) realized that allied with cultural Marxism, political correctness could be used to rot western civilization from within, and it’s working perfectly! A few more decades and the muslims will once again have their beloved slaves, and you religious nutters will be paying the jizya or dead, and we atheists will be hiding out in the hills.

      Question: Why are westerners such suckers for middle eastern desert religions? (Christianity & islam) Would have been much better off with religions of the old Greeks, Romans, Vikings etc., oh I realize they killed a few people too, but islam is REALLY scraping the bottom of the barrel.

      • To ‘Peter35′ – “A few more decades and…you religious nutters will be paying the jizya or dead, and we atheists will be hiding out in the hills.”

        Don’t be so ‘all-fired’ sure of yourself, my friend!

        The way I view history would seem to support the fact that most people of religious persuasion (whether peacable or violent in its deportment) are the ones who gain the upper hand in the end. And those who are non-religious are the ones who succumb to the zealots!

        I think you’ve got your x’s mixed up with your y’s and z’s! I agree that many Christians may indeed have to die for their faith in their fight against islam–you got that part right! But, so far as the atheists being the resouceful ones who somehow manage to escape the scourge of mohammed’s cult–I couldn’t DISagree more!

        Seems like I remember hearing a wise old soldier who once make the comment, “There are no atheists in the foxholes!”

        • “No atheists in the foxholes”, I meant that as a joke; we atheists would be sharing your fate–if we let it happen!

          You didn’t answer my question; why are Christians such suckers for middle-east desert religions? The way I see it there are/were better options.

          As for your ‘old soldier’, I think just as many soldiers in the foxholes would have turned away from religion in disgust, as converted to it.

          “You know it’s (not) true” did make some valid points, but Christianity was never that bad, except during the inquisition and the slaughter of the Cathars, while wholesale slaughter and genocide, rape murder and cruelty are the hallmark of the sub-human islamic cult.

          I’ve said all along that quoting verses from the bible is not the way to defeat islam; people have to wake up and realize the problem of islam is only going to get worse, and the solution is a military one.

          Christians have their faith, which is fine with me, but faith is the opposite of reason, and you shouldn’t have to think too hard to realize we need people to think; to reason. Cheers, Pete

  6. they destroy my country -Egypt- and if you didnt take a real actions they will turn ur country into ruins

  7. To ‘Peter35′ – To be sure, I know that people of every persuasion and creed inevitably find themselves fighting side by side in any given armed conflict–and I agree that islam must be confronted militarily, not simply with meaningless empty philosophies or dogmas.

    My point was not that ‘atheists’ might somehow find a way to evade armed conflict, should it actually come to that; my point was that armed conflicts inevitably TURN MOST UNBELIEVERS INTO BELIEVERS! In other words, pain and fear of the unknown very often cause non-believers to seek for a God who, up until then, had remained seemingly allusive. To me, it would seem rather fruitless and senseless to show contempt or disgust toward a God of mercy at a time when I most needed his help. Now, of course, if you were to harbor some sort of resentment toward a God in whom you ‘don’t believe’, then you are no longer an atheist–you are simply an unbeliever, by virtue of the fact that you cannot show contempt for someone who does not exist.

    To me, there is no debate whatsoever as to the existence of a Creator. The conflict arises when I ask myself–DOES HE CARE ABOUT ME???

    I’ve found the answer to that question in the Bible–God’s Holy Word! I must ask myself–WHY DIDN’T JESUS CHRIST (WHO PERSONALLY CLAIMED TO BE GOD in the flesh) demonstrate his mighty powers by striking sinners with leprosy or with bolts of lightning from on high??? And the answer is simply that he will never violate our free will and volition. We must either CHOOSE him or REJECT him. He will never force himself upon us! He will have it NO OTHER WAY! There is NO coersion with God! And that is the big lie that islamists believe–that coersion will conquer the world! What they refuse to understand is simply that “a man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still”!!!

    As for the inquisition–I’ve never really been much of a history buff! I would never doubt that atrocities may very well have been committed in the name of Christ–I don’t profess to know why people do what they do. I just know that to me, Jesus Christ has never been anything but merciful, and that’s despite the fact that I once was extremely hostile to him!!!

    You may call Christ a middle-eastern religion–an offshoot of Judaism–but I know him as my Best Friend!!! Yes, it’s really true, “He walks with me and he talks with me….” And I hope you come to meet him too someday–in this life down here–before it’s too late to wish you had!!!!
    “He is a Friend who sticks closer than a brother”!

    • You’re impossible! Oh, and dapreach, atheists are unbelievers–and unbelievers are atheists; that’s it, amigo!

      As for “he walks with me, talks with me”, I hope that goes no further than this site. Really, friend.

      • Thanks! I’ll take that as a compliment–the part about being impossible! As for all unbelievers being atheists, I think there’s possibly a distinction to be made, but I’d just as leave not pursue it.

        With regard to the words that you re-quoted–I didn’t invent that line. It’s from a song that’s older than you are (copyright 1912)! I’m surprised you seemed to be somewhat “shocked” by it. It’s been sung by many secular artists as well as sacred–“IN THE GARDEN”.

        I’m glad that you still regard me as “friend” friend!!!

        • Most of us on this site are on the same ‘side’, wouldn’t you agree? Of course we have small differences–a damned good thing too, otherwise there’d be nothing to discuss, right?

          I count you and many others on this and other sites as friends. Didn’t know about “In the Garden”, hardly my cup of tea. Keep up the comments!
