Will The Christian Lambs Lay Down For the Lions?

Pamela at Atlas Shrugs has been tearing it up recently. She is one of the best bloggers on the internet, and has the best-looking blog around.

I am particularly appreciative of the work she is doing to bring awareness to the fact that Islamic radicals have have been going on rampages against Christians recently, which have been almost as bad as their campaign against the Jews.

Here's the news from the Peaceful State of Palestine:

Christians in the Holy Land have handed a dossier detailing incidents of violence and intimidation by Muslim extremists to church leaders in Jerusalem, one of whom said it was time for Christians to "raise our voices" against the sectarian violence.

The dossier includes 93 alleged incidents of abuse by an "Islamic fundamentalist mafia" against Palestinian Christians, who accused the PA of doing nothing to stop the attacks.

The dossier also includes a list of 140 cases of apparent land theft, in which Christians in the West Bank were allegedly forced off their land by gangs backed by corrupt judicial officials.

A spokesman for the Apostolic Delegate, the Pope's envoy to Jerusalem, said nothing had been done to tackle the problem despite repeated appeals to the PA to rein in Muslim gangs. The dossier currently in church hands details far worse allegations of violence, notably the torture and murder of two Christian girls in 2003. (Telegraph-UK)

But wait, there's more:

A Muslim mob converged on the Palestinian Christian town of Taibeh, burning and looting 13 homes owned by relatives of a man suspected of having an affair and impregnating a 30 year old Muslim woman who worked for him. Prior to the mob attack, in yet another suspected "honor killing," the pregnant woman, Hiyam Ajaj, was found dead from poison.

Lara Sukhtian, of the Associated Press (AP), has written a compelling article about the incident that included context regarding Muslim-Christian tensions, as well as the disturbing practice of "honor killing" among both Muslim and Christian Arabs. While I understand that coverage of the massive Hurricane Katrina relief effort has appropriately bumped many other news items, this compelling story is of particular interest to Christians and women's rights advocates, as well as the general public.

In contrast to the dwindling population of Christians in the PA territories -- as well as surrounding Muslim countries -- Israel's Christian population is vibrant and growing.

Radical Islam has seized the reins of power in much of the Muslim world. They are at war with us. We must realize the truth of this. Radical Muslim ideology and government controls the counries of Iran, Saudi Arabia, Syria, the Sudan, Niger, and to a lesser extent, United Arab Emirates, and Egypt.

That's a lot of countries and a lot of people. And they want to bring down Western Civilization and replace it with an Islamic Caliphate.

We need to shake ourselves awake and start really fighting. We could lose all of this, my friends.

As we approach 9/11 we must realize that the message they sent us was that they will do anything they can to kill as many of us as they possibly can. Think about what that means in a world where a single weapon can wipe out a city.

We need to wake up.
