| Monday, June 03, 2019
Gatestone Institute : In 2018 alone, 1,063 attacks on Christian churches or symbols (crucifixes, icons, statues) were registered in France.

"I went to the police with eight pages full of threats.... The police advised me to delete my picture from my website.... It's strange isn't it: I'm not doing anything wrong, why would I need to hide? I live in a free country." — cruxnow.com. March 14, 2019; The Netherlands.
An Iranian female asylum seeker was sarcastically informed in her rejection letter that "You affirmed in your...[Interview Record] that Jesus is your saviour, but then claimed that He would not be able to save you from the Iranian regime. It is therefore considered that you have no conviction in your faith and your belief in Jesus is half-hearted." — Daily Mail, March 24, 2019; United Kingdom.
When it comes to violence between Muslims and non-Muslims, March news
was dominated by the Christchurch massacres in New Zealand, where, on
March 15, an Australian man killed 51 Muslims in two mosques. A
that did some number-crunching, however, found that "a Christian living
in a majority Muslim country is 143 times more likely to be killed by a
Muslim for being a Christian than a Muslim is likely to be killed by a
non-Muslim in a Western country for being what he is."
The report — citing that "at least 4,305 Christians ... were murdered
by Muslims because of their faith in 2018" and that "300 million
Christians, overwhelmingly in the majority-Muslim countries, were
subjected to violence" — refers
to the persecution of Christians by Muslims as "the most egregious
example of human right violations in today's world. The report also
found other, similar disparities. In France,
for example, "Frenchmen are exactly ten times more likely to be
murdered by a Muslim than a Muslim being killed by a non-Muslim
terrorist anywhere in the Western world." :
