Increased Persecution of Christians
Along with the tidal wave of protests and riots on the streets of the Middle East has come a sharp increase of violent persecution of Christian communities. Car bombs and terror attacks on Christians in Egypt, Iraq, Pakistan and Northern Nigeria have killed hundreds of Christians and left many more wounded. Tens-of-thousands of Christians are packing up and fleeing the region. Considering that these Christians come from communities which have survived 14 centuries of Islamic persecution, only to be uprooted now, shows just how severe this new wave of ruthless persecution by radical Muslims has become.
