While the extremism & persecution being directed against Christians in the Middle East which are a crime against civilization as well as humanity, the effect of this campaign of violence and intimidation has been devastating for Christianity in Syria. Syria boasted a flourishing Christian population of at least 3 million. Today the high-end estimate for the number of Christians left is around 700,000, and realistically many believe it could be as low as 350,000. Most of these Syrian Christians have fled the country, but a staggering number have been killed.
All should realize and see what happened not only to the Christians in Syria but to the civilization.
Radical Islamism and the terrorism that has come to be associated with it are on a high peak in the Middle east and especially in Syria and have been for the past three years, Violent radical Islamism is no longer, if it ever was, limited to the likes of al Qaeda Rather, likeminded networks of autonomous Islamist radical terror cells who aid one another in pursuit of common goals now crisscross the globe and the next journey is to the west.
The blood lust of Islamism is thus rooted in a perverted religious impulse to kill and mutilate in the name of Allah. This is what makes it so insidious and wicked. The killing of innocent men, women, and children in the name of Islam becomes a thing of praise and a badge of honor. The more you kill, the more Allah is honored.
Thus the world is lulled to sleep while the enemy gathers its strength for an all out offensive against the civilian populations. It has attacked Syria now, and the tumor will spread. And all that seems benign now in the West shall at one time turn cancerous that will be difficult to control.
Islamic fundamentalists plan on putting together an Islamic empire composed of Turkey, Afghanistan, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Egypt, Sudan, Libya, Tunisia, Nigeria, the former Muslim Soviet states such as Uzbekistan, Malaysia and Indonesia.
Their plan is on schedule and they are taking over country after country while the West sleeps securely with its naive dreams of endless peace and prosperity of a ‘new world order’. Each day’s headlines demonstrate the timeliness of this important analysis of the emerging trans-national radical Islamic movement… and the growing danger that extremist Islamic elements may seek to exploit the present vulnerability with devastating results.
I did not expect that the extremism would reach Syria in such a dreadful way, but having swept over massively to kill every living creature—expect your door to be knocked at soon.

One small voice cries out for the Persecuted Church. More than 100,000,000 Christians around the world are at risk of persecution. It has become one of the worst humanitarian crises on the planet, today! It is ”a crisis point in history” that can no longer be overlooked, or millions more will suffer! Sadly it’s a crisis that not enough people realize exists. Unfortunately the western media rarely reports the extreme persecution inflicted on our Christian brothers and sisters, worldwide. We are called by our God to stand up for all who are destitute, to remember the prisoners as if imprisoned ourselves and to be a VOICE for the persecuted Church! Join us, we CAN make a difference!
