Islamic Persecution Against Christianity
Islam: Not Just Another Religion

Although mostly spurious charges of Koranic desecration abound in the Western world, little mention is made of the numerous Bibles actually being confiscated and shredded at the Riyadh airport. In many Islamic countries, Christians are not permitted to build churches or renovate existing ones. While Muslims are invited to the Vatican and to serve on interfaith councils, non-believers are not permitted to travel to Mecca or Medina.

From Nigeria to Indonesia,
Christians are under siege in virtually every single country in the
Muslim world, the victims of countless acts of discrimination,
depredation, brutality, and murder that are so widespread and
systematic that it can rightfully be called the new Holocaust. This
time, however, the perpetrators of this Holocaust aren't wearing
swastikas, but kufi skull caps and hijabs.

This is Your Gazan Conversion
By Andrew Bostom
August 29, 2006
forced conversion of two television journalists to Islam is nothing new
— except for the use of videotape and the celebrity value in play. The
jihad of today is actually very old, and embedded in the very
foundations of Islam.
Fox News journalists Steve Centanni and his accompanying cameraman Olaf Wiig were released on Sunday, August 27, 2006, following almost two weeks of captivity. While both men appeared to be in good physical health, the prognosis for their psychological state, and future journalistic contributions, is less sanguine. As depicted in this disturbing video, Centanni and Wiig were forced to convert to Islam, and recite an anti—Western diatribe, complemented by treacly Islamic apologetics.
During the brief press conference held almost immediately after their release , both men preferred to focus on the plight of the kind and benevolent denizens of Gaza. Momentarily acknowledging the coercive nature of their 'conversion,' Centanni admitted off camera, 'We were forced to convert to Islam at gunpoint.' But he felt compelled to add this bizarre disclaimer, 'Don't get me wrong here. I have the highest respect for Islam, and I learned a lot of good things about it,' before concluding candidly
'...it was something we felt we had to do because they had the guns, and we didn't know what the hell was going on.'
