Christians' Fate Perilous
by Hal Lindesy
Very little thought is being given for the plight of Christians who live in the midst of the "so called Arab Spring revolts." In the case of every Muslim nation that has overthrown the old regimes, the Christians' are in a much worse and more perilous situation. Just look at the Muslim countries that have been "liberated" from their old Muslim dictators - and I might add, the U.S. helped these so called Muslim freedom seeking rebels with weapons and equipment.
The Egyptian rebels pretended to be moderates looking for a more Democratic government. They have now voted in leaders from the radical Muslim Brotherhood. They have rejected the decades old peace treaty with Israel and helped radical terrorist groups attack Israel. And they have made the lives of the centuries old Coptic Christians of Egypt greatly more perilous.
The same thing can be said for the Christians living in Libya, Tunisia and Iraq. And amazingly, the Christians in Syria are experiencing the same plight, if not worse. Christians in a Muslim country are always much better off when the government is not Muslim controlled, but secular. Veteran journalist, Michael Carl, writing for World Net Daily said, "The U.S. government is misguided in its support of the rebels fighting to overthrow the Syrian regime, because Christians and other religious majorities are faring better under Bashar al-Assad, according to two activists who have recently returned from the region. ‘There is no place where the Christians can go. They have no place to go," said Religious Freedom Coalition President William Murray after his return from a trip to Jordan. Nearly the entire Christian population of the Syrian city of Homs - about 80,000 people - have fled Syria to refugee camps in neighboring Jordan.'"
When it comes to the revolutions that are sweeping the Muslim Middle East, "it is better to deal with the devil you know than the one you do not know." Without exception, the rebels that have overthrown the dictatorships of the old Arab regimes have been dominated by extremist Islamic fundamentalists. They want to establish a religious control under what they are calling a new Muslim Caliphate that will rule the entire Middle East with Sharia Law.
