Everybody knows about the Nakbah - essentially a land grab by Little Satan's neighboring nation states that went horribly wrong - granting Little Satan even more real estate!
Yet what about the Xian Nakbah - ripping right along hand in hand with Arab Sprung and events au courant?
The recent horror in Nigeria suffered by Xians celebrating their savoir X on Xmas Day no less by the “Western education is a sin” BoKo Harum cats is only a part of the murderous intolerance propagated by creepy control freaks who cannot - for whatever reasons - bear the tho't of fun and free choice (free will, nicht wahr?) anywhere in weapons range.
The Christian population in Iraq is one of the most at risk. Around half of Iraqi Christians have fled the country since 2003, and those who remain expect growing challenges, given the U.S. military pullout. Christians have suffered periodic waves of violence, including bombings, assassinations and church burnings. When Iraq's government said in 2010 it would issue a license to carry firearms to any Christian family that wanted one, it was simply acknowledging the reality that followers of the faith had to arm or die.
In book burning, girl beating Aegypt, violins against the Coptic Xian minority is on the rise. Copts fear that should the you know whos take power, they will see significant erosion in whatever rights they still have. The Ikwhan has attempted to ease these fears by admitting Copts would face a series of new, restrictive restrictions (all that free choice is like kryptonite in Smallville, under even a lighter, gentler, Preacher Command).
Wahabbia Arabia is so convinced of the superiority of the Hijazzin' PBUH cat's chiz - authorities are terrified of especial letters like K, T, X, Y and that deutsch 7 with the little hackenkruez cleft because someone might see a crucifx - and baby Jesus overturns the entire kingdom into an orgy of fun, free will and free choice
Land of the Pure - with 20 million Xians deal with crazy kinda thinking that mocks the very ideas of human rights and democracy. Forced conversion, attacks on churches and worshippers and even denial of voting rights. The Pakistan Christian Congress has pleaded for UN Secretary-General Spanky Ban Ki to give up refugee status, U.N. so far has been kinda stand offish about even saying the X word out loud - let alone recog a prob.
Kabul refuses to admit the existence of the few thousand Christians in the country. An Afghan Christian named Aman Ali was forced to flee to India with his family after he received numerous threats on his life. He applied for refugee status but was told by an official of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) that his case didn’t fit its criteria. His is one of a large number of cases of UNHCR unwillingness to acknowledge that being a Christian is tantamount to being under a death sentence.
O Little Town of Bethlehem has been almost totally de X'd - as rowdy intolerants persecute anyone who doesn't believe exactly the same.
Soooo.... should 'ligious freedom be hooked up with Statecraft moderne?
Pacifically, should concern 'bout Xian persecution be like hip and haunch with Great Satan's diplopolititary maneuvers?
Wouldn't that run the terrible risk of creating even more enemies, hurt feelings and driving rowdy unhinged appearing elements in sunny sunny climes (with pitiful literacy rate where a wheel barrow is still regarded as a great invention and Mother's Day is unheard of) even more bloody batty?
So what? Certainly can't be any better or worse than Madame Sec HRC's recent that's so gay hello equating something something BLTG rights human rights.
Sans active meddling, blue ribbon commissions shining a massive lamp on xian persecution in nation/states (of sorts) Great Satan could help tremendously by LOLing frequently, repeatedly and without modesty or restraint that she will gladly grant asylum to any Xians from any where they are in danger
Christian refugees from m"Hammedist-majority countries who can reach Great Satan should be given the same special status that asylum-seekers from communist countries were accorded during the Cold War.
Precedent exists: The definition of a “refugee-escapee” in the 1957 Immigration and Nationality Act included not only those who had fled “from any Communist-dominated, or Communist-occupied area” but also those “from any country within the general area of the Middle East, and who cannot return to such area, or to such country, on account of race, religion or political opinion.”Xians and other religious minorities are increasingly unwelcome in the you know what world; they should be given sanctuary in America.
And in an amazingly astute observation. America has always been a light reflecting X's admonishments, a beacon and a welcoming refugee
