Egypt’s Maspero massacre—where the military killed dozens of Christians protesting the destruction of their churches—dominates October’s persecution headlines. Facts and details concerning the military’s “crimes against humanity” are documented in this report, and include videos of armored-vehicles running over civilians, a catalog of lies and deceitful tactics employed by Egypt’s rulers and state media, and other matters […]

Western media coverage of the recent massacre of Coptic Christians in Cairo, Egypt—in which the military killed dozens of Christians and injured some 300—was, as discussed earlier, deplorable.

Reposted from Raymond Ibrahim’s blog. Original here. Historically, non-Muslims whose lands were seized by the jihad had three choices: conversion, dhimmitude, or death.  Today, however, they have a fourth option largely unavailable to their forbears: quit their lands of origin—emigrate—the latest testimony to the nature of Islam.   Abu Shadi: “Christians must choose between conversion, […]

Last week Federal District Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange made permanent a temporary injunction she had issued on November 9 to block implementation of a constitutional amendment passed overwhelmingly by voters of that state.
