Muslim Persecution of Christians

“Fact:  The 2016 killing of a gorilla in Cincinnati received six times more [mainstream] media coverage than the beheading by ISIS of 21 Coptic Egyptian Christians who refused to recant their faith.”

-“Blaming Israel, Not Muslims, for Christian Woe” by Raymond Ibrahim [1A]

The mainstream media does not impartially report religious persecution.


In Nigeria alone there have been 32,000 Christians killed by the country’s jihadists over the past decade [1B][2].

Hostility toward Christianity is well-established in other Muslim countries, as well [1C].  These include Kenya, Somalia, and Mozambique.


In Uganda (a religiously diverse country with Christianity widely practiced), it is not uncommon for Muslims to attack or kill family members for converting to Christianity [1D][3].


In Egypt, numerous churches have been bombed by Muslims, over the years [1E].  The number of Christian women and girls kidnapped, then forced to convert to Islam and marry their abductors is record high [1F].


In Pakistan, discrimination against Christians is out in the open [1G][4].  Police and the courts routinely side with Muslim rapists and kidnappers over victims.

Palestinian Authority (West Bank/Gaza)

In those areas of Israel controlled by the Palestinian Authority, shocking instances of Muslim violence against Christians go largely unreported by the mainstream media [1H].

These have included armed attacks by Fatah-affiliated rioters, the desecration of churches, and the closing of Christian schools by Hamas government order [1I].

Meanwhile, Israel has been unjustly blamed for the decline in the Christian population of the Holy Land [1J].

“The phenomenon of Muslim persecution of Christians is real:  it’s unwavering, constant, and systematic, and it conforms to sharia-approved patterns – meaning its root source is Islam.”

We mourn yet another mass shooting — this one in Texas, where 19 young children and 2 teachers were killed.


  1. Was wäre es schön, wenn alle Religionen friedlich nebeneinander leben könnten, ohne Hass und Gewalt. LIebe Grüße, Marie

  2. I pray daily for the protection and deliverance of persecuted Christians globally and in specific countries. I also pray for their bold effectiveness in the Gospel, and that Christ would reveal himself to members of these violent groups like he did to Saul on the road to Damascus and say to them, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting.” I pray daily for the genuine conversion of all muslims for God’s glory.

  3. And it is only going to get worse. One must be aligned with the Holy Spirit and Jesus’ instruction to love our enemies and pray for our persecutors. It is one thing to read this in a theological mindset; quite another to face it in one’s day to day life!

    Thanks for this well-documented article, Anna. What irony– that the media who boast in their freedoms are aligned with so repressive a religion.

    • Christ explained it. “‘For the hearts of this people have grown dull. Their ears are hard of hearing, And their eyes they have closed…Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn, So that I should heal them’” (Matt. 13: 15).
