Most Dangerous Nations for Christians

Take a look at the map and see if you can find any correlation:

As the list in the link shows, 9 of the top 10 nations are either Islamic or Muslim-majority. This includes Obama's, John Kerry's, and John McCain's favorite - Syria, where these three seem to want the rebels who are murdering Christians to be the ruler of the entire nation.  In North Korea the main problem is that their rulers are Stalinist -type Communists.

Severe persecution also seems to be the norm in other Muslim-majority nations. The exceptions  here are Communist Vietnam and in Columbia, where the cartels are targeting Christians who dare to challenge their manner of doing things.

As for nations in which persecution is considered moderate, such as India (Some of that violence is committed by Hindus), Indonesia, Algeria, Mali, Kazakhstan, Niger, and Tanzania, we again see the Islamic element as a quite common .denominator.

As Samuel Huntington of The Clash of Civilizations noted, "Islam has bloody borders".  

-From Jihad Watch:

"LONDON -- Reported cases of Christians killed for their faith around the world doubled in 2013 from the year before, with Syria accounting for more than the whole global total in 2012, according to an annual survey.

Open Doors, a non-denominational group supporting persecuted Christians worldwide, said on Wednesday it had documented 2,123 "martyr" killings, compared with 1,201 in 2012. There were 1,213 such deaths in Syria alone last year, it said.

"This is a very minimal count based on what has been reported in the media and we can confirm," said Frans Veerman, head of research for Open Doors. Estimates by other Christian groups put the annual figure as high as 8,000.

The Open Doors report placed North Korea at the top of its list of 50 most dangerous countries for Christians, a position it has held since the annual survey began 12 years ago. Somalia, Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan were the next four in line.

The United States-based group reported increasing violence against Christians in Africa and said radical Muslims were the main source of persecution in 36 countries on its list.

"Islamist extremism is the worst persecutor of the worldwide church," it said...."
