Indian Christian Activist Network skriver om kristenforfølgelser

World, January 09, 2013: Christianophobia, which was published last month, written by journalist Rupert Shortt for Civitas, argues that “Christians are targeted more than any other body of believers.” He quotes research by the Pew Forum and the World Evangelical Alliance, which estimates that 200 million Christians (ten per cent of the global total) are socially disadvantaged, harassed or actively oppressed for their faith.

Focusing on the plight of Christians in seven countries (Egypt, Iraq, Pakistan, Nigeria, India, Burma and China), Shortt catalogues some of the most egregious attacks on Christians in recent years.

He states: In the large area between Morocco and Pakistan … there is scarcely a country in which church life operates without restrictions. Syria, he writes, had been “one of the exceptions until now”, but the country is currently wracked by civil war, and thousands of Christians have been driven from their homes.

Quoting the estimates of scholars that between half and two-thirds of Christians in the Middle East have left or been killed over the last century, Shortt states, “There is now a serious risk that Christianity will disappear from its Biblical heartlands.”

Artiklen åbner muligheden for at den islamiske forfølgelse af kristne og andre mindretal er teologisk og altså indbygget i islam. Det er begreber som Jihad, der konstant er en krigserklæring mod alt u-islamisk og så læren om overhøjhed overfor kristne, jøder og andre der gør islamisk vold og undertrykkelse systemisk. Som en modsætning til denne triste sandhed om islam trækker artiklen en bekræftelse frem, nemlig at Bush’s korsfarer ordvalg har givet islamistiske grupper et figenblad af en undskyldning til at kaste sig over de kristne. Denne typiske og forfejlede ækvivalens er her særligt ironisk fordi artiklen fokus først og fremmest er, hvorfor Vesten og den kristne verden ignorerer kristenforfølgelser og finder at det er fordi det er for svært at forholde sig til uden at skulle forholde sig mindre rosenrødt til religiøs frihed.

Samme fejl gør en artikel i Foreign Affairs, der efter noget ævl om kolonitiden og 1. Verdenkrig alligevel perspektiverer ganske politisk ukorrekt

The tragedy for Christians in the region is obvious. They are losing their lives, their homes, and their houses of worship. They are being driven from their ancestral homelands and forced to flee as refugees to neighboring countries where they are, in many cases, equally unwelcome.

But it is important to note that the removal of the region’s Christians is a disaster for Muslims as well. They are the ones who will be left with the task of building decent societies in the aftermath of these atrocities. And that task will be made immeasurably harder by the removal of Christians from their midst. It is not just that the memory of these brutal actions will taint these societies — perpetrators and victims alike — for the indefinite future; it is also that Muslims are removing the sort of pluralism that is the foundation for any truly democratic public life. One of the refrains of the Arab Spring has been that Muslims want to put an end to tyranny. But the only lasting guarantor of political rights is the sort of social and religious diversity that Muslims in the region are in the process of extinguishing. If nothing is done to reverse the situation, the hope for peace and prosperity in the Middle East may vanish along with the region’s Christian population.

Eller som en landflygtig muslim advarede sine landsmænd under Muhammedkrisen; “hvis I får held til at omdanne islamificere Vesten, hvor vil i så flygte hen da?”
