Forbes appeals for recognition of the persecution of Christians, but did it ‘forget’ its main cause?

Although Forbes recognizes Christian persecution, it needs to recognize its root cause. This appeal follows Hungary’s International Conference on Christian
Persecution, which I attended as a guest of the Hungarian government. Those who have followed Jihad Watch’s coverage of Hungary
and of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban know that he has stood
apart in the European Union as one who has rejected outright the EU’s
suicidal immigration policies.
Orban has not even attempted to disguise
the reason why: he intends to responsibly protect the Christian heritage
of his country against Islamization. He knows that in Christian, not
Muslim, societies, religious rights and freedoms truly flourish.
Take for example, the top 15 countries listed by Open Doors USA as the worst persecutors of Christians. In 80% of those countries, the Christians are suffering under “Islamic oppression.”
Western nati0ns are already beginning to submit to the strictures of
Islamic supremacism, as promulgated primarily by the Organization of
Islamic Cooperation (OIC). The OIC for years has attempted to force the
West to accept what are essentially Sharia blasphemy laws. Any doctrine
can be criticized in the West except Islam; its critics are deemed
“Islamophobic” and must be punished in some fashion.
Yet Christians are
being wiped out in the Middle East and Africa as a result of Islamic
supremacist doctrine; acknowledgement of that fact is crucial to
stopping the advancing jihad.
In his talk, Orban gave a dire warning: that it would be a grave
mistake to think that any country is immune from the persecution of
Christians. “Forbes Calls for Recognition of Christian Persecution as Global,” by Thomas D. Williams, Breitbart, December 2, 2019:
