Tidligere denne måned deltog jeg i Koptisk Solidaritets Halvårlige Konference i Washington D.C. med temaet: “Vil religiøse og etniske minoriteter betale prisen for ‘det arabiske forår’? Paneldeltagerne inkluderede specialister på Mellemøsten, prominente medlemmer af det koptiske samfund og andre minoritetsledere fra den muslimske verden, herunder kurdere, berbere og sudanesiske animister.
Finding and connecting similar patterns of behavior throughout Islamic history is one of the most objective ways of determining whether something is or is not part of Muslim civilization.
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.
In a globalized world where debate and diplomacy predominate, there is one sure way to discern the sincerity of any particular government: see how it behaves at home, where it is in power; see especially how it treats its minorities.
Cases dealing with apostasy in Islam—whereby Muslims who convert to other religions are tortured and executed—are on the rise and need to be acknowledged for what they are: one of Islam’s most visible attempts to suppress the human conscience—a phenomenon that has dire implications beyond religious freedom.

Some are asking why my new monthly series, “Muslim Persecution of Christians,” wherein I collate and assess some of the atrocities committed by Muslims against Christians, does not include the persecution of other religious minority groups; others are suggesting I broaden my scope to include all minorities, for instance, homosexuals.
This series was developed in order to collate some—by no means all—of the foulest instances of Muslim persecution of Christians that surface each month. It serves two purposes: Intrinsically, to document that which the mainstream media does not: habitual, if not chronic, Muslim persecution of Christians.
Niniejszy cykl został zapoczątkowany, aby zestawić niektóre, żadną miarą nie wszystkie, najbardziej haniebne przypadki muzułmańskich prześladowań chrześcijan, które wypłynęły na powierzchnię w kolejnych miesiącach. Ma to na celu:
