Hadith, Muslim 2889, “Verily Allah has shown me the eastern and western part of the earth, and I saw the authority of my Ummah (Islamic nation) dominate all that I saw.”
By Thomas D. Williams, Breitbart – “In a high-level meeting on religious persecution in Brussels, the President of the European Parliament (EP) said that Europe cannot afford to continue ignoring the fate of Christians, who are ‘clearly the most persecuted group’ in the world.
In Wednesday’s meeting, EP President Martin Schulz said that the persecution of Christians is ‘undervalued’ and does not receive enough attention, which has also meant that it ‘hasn’t been properly addressed.’
Schulz’s concerns were echoed by EP Vice President Antonio Tajani, who warned that Europe sometimes ‘falls into the temptation of thinking we can ignore this task,’ referring to the protection Christians throughout the world who suffer persecution.
Speakers cited the work of Open Doors, a human rights organization that monitors the persecution of Christians, noting that 150 million Christians worldwide suffer torture, rape and arbitrary imprisonment. Christians in Iraq, Somalia, Syria, Pakistan, North Korea and Nigeria are among those hardest hit.
The Open Doors report for 2015 found that ‘Islamic extremism is by far the most significant persecution engine’ of Christians in the world today and that ’40 of the 50 countries on the World Watch List are affected by this kind of persecution.’
For Islamists, Tajani said, Christians are the new ‘crusaders’ of Europe, and because of Islamic persecution in the Middle East more than 70 percent of Christians have fled Iraq since 2003, with another 700 thousand Christians who have been forced to leave their home in Syria since the outbreak of civil war.
‘Each month 200 churches and places of worship in the world are attacked and destroyed. Every day and in every region of the world, there are new cases of persecution against Christians,’ said Tajani.
‘No religious community is as subject to hatred, violence and systematic aggression as the Christians,’ he said…
‘It should shake us up,’ said Schulz, ‘that on our continent, Christians are not safe.'” Read more.

Filled with great wrath, Satan’s next battle plan against the Most High is to now destroy the elect of God, those ‘who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ’ (12:17). How? Through mass deception of a different body of people whose primary focus would become the conversion or elimination of everyone who opposed them (cf. Revelation 20:3). Satan’s new plan of attack sets up for himself a people who would be conformed to his own image in order to achieve the goal of destroying the elect of God. And what is Satan’s weapon of mass deception and destruction, the key to achieving that goal? It is Islam …” Read more.

After a relative lull, Islamic persecution has literally exploded once again in the aftermath of 9/11 and the rise of the Arab Spring. The Prophet Daniel writes that this final Beast would be ‘dreadful and terrifying’ and would ‘speak out against the Most High and wear down the saints of the Highest One’ and ‘intend to make alterations in times and in law’ (Daniel 7:7, 25). While the Muslim world seeks to rewrite history in a deceptive effort to buttress its own religious and political declarations and continually seeks to impose Sharia Law whenever and wherever it can … Christians are experiencing the worst persecution seen from Islamists in hundreds of years … And it is only going to get much worse.” Read more.
