| Merry Christmas in these days of the persecution of Christians
| Wednesday, January 09, 2019
Jihad Watch : Merry Christmas to all Jihad Watchers who are celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ today.
The question before us this Christmas, as it is every Christmas these
days, is whether or not Christians should be allowed to be Christian
and celebrate Christmas freely, without being brutalized or
discriminated against, if they live in Iran, or Iraq, or Egypt, or
Pakistan, or Nigeria, or Indonesia, or other Muslim countries, and
whether free people of all creeds and perspectives should defend their
right to do so.
In many countries today, Christians are being kidnapped, imprisoned,
wrongly arrested, beaten, and murdered — not because of anything they
have done, but because they have dared to have beliefs that are
considered blasphemous in authoritative Islam. We see this at Jihad Watch on a regular basis. We see jihadists attacking Christians with
We also see the world continuing to yawn and remain
indifferent as all this goes on, and weak and cowardly Christian leaders
saying that we must not talk about it for fear of “provoking” Muslims
and harming a chimerical and fruitless (at best) Muslim/Christian
“dialogue.” Those who dare anyway to speak out about the persecution of
Christians that the persecutors justify by invoking the Qur’an and
Sunnah are vilified, demonized, and silenced as “bigots” and
“Islamophobes.” Even some Christians do this to their fellow Christians
who speak unwelcome truths on these matters.
So here is something to remember this Christmas: if you are a free
human being, whether or not you are Christian, those Christians who are
being persecuted in Iran, and Iraq, and Indonesia, and Nigeria, and
Egypt, and Pakistan, and elsewhere in the Islamic world, are standing in
your place. The jihadis would just as soon attack you as well, and will
eventually if they get the chance. Remember that the Islamic jihad
program has you on its list. You may not be a Christian. You may not be a
Jew. You may not be a Hindu. You may not be a Buddhist. You may not
wish to pay attention to the jihad at all. But the jihad is universal,
and relentless. And you are on its list.
So this Christmas, may all of us whose conversion, subjugation, or
death is envisioned by the adherents of Sharia stand together. Let us
stand together as Jews, Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, atheists,
secularists, what have you, and stand up against those who would kill us
or subject us to institutionalized discrimination and harassment (at
best) because they find our beliefs offensive.
