How Christians are treated in muslim lands

Not very surprising, yet anytime a muslim terrorist is busted plotting jihad in the US, CAIR is quick to come to his defense and cry racism, racial profiling, discrimination, what have you.

Saudi Arabia – Conversion by a Muslim to another religion is punishable by death. Bibles are illegal. Churches are illegal. Easter celebrations are illegal. It is punishable by death for a non-mulsim to enter the “holy” muslim cities of Medina and Mecca.

Yemen – Bans proselytizing by non-Muslims and forbids conversions. The Government does not allow the building of new non-Muslim places of worship.

Kuwait – Registration and licensing of religious groups. Members of religions not sanctioned in the Koran may not build places of worship. Prohibits organized religious education for religions other than Islam.

Egypt – Islam is the official state religion and primary source of legislation. Accordingly, religious practices that conflict with Islamic law are prohibited. Muslims may face legal problems if they convert to another faith. Requires non-Muslims to obtain what is now a presidential decree to build a place of worship.

Algeria – The law prohibits public assembly for purposes of practicing a faith other than Islam. Non-Islamic proselytizing is illegal, and the Government restricts the importation of non-Islamic literature for distribution. The country has passed the “Regulation of Religious Practice” law, which stipulates a punishment of two to five years’ imprisonment and heavy fines for anyone convicted of urging a Muslim to change his religion.

Syria – The constitution requires the president to be a Muslim and specifies that Islamic jurisprudence is a principal source of legislation. Sharing your Christian faith is discouraged as “posing a threat to the relations among religious groups” and carries a penalty of up to life in prison. A Christian is not allowed to proselytize – ever. Churches who want to hold an extra service must get a government permit. Sermons are routinely monitored, as is church fundraising.

Jordan – Has the death penalty for any Muslim selling land to a Jew.

Sudan – Conversion by a Muslim to another religion is punishable by death.

Pakistan – Conversion by a Muslim to another religion is punishable by death. Bans proselytizing by non-Muslims. Christians regularly put in prison for charges of blasphemy. Islam is the state religion, and in a court of law the testimony of a Christian carries less weight than that of a Muslim. Section 295(c) of the Penal Code calls for a death sentence for anyone who defiles the name of the Prophet Muhammad and requires the testimony of four Muslims for a conviction. This fosters an environment in which Muslims can feel free to use intimidation and violence against religious minorities for personal gain. Also, if any criminal Muslim rape with any Christian female and then take plea that she has accepted Islam and marry with him. Such person is not culpable under Pakistani criminal law

Qatar – Islamic instruction is compulsory in public schools. The government regulates the publication, importation, and distribution of non-Islamic religious literature. The government continues to prohibit proselytizing of Muslims by non-Muslims.

Malaysia – Under Malaysian law, any convert to Christianity must apply to a shariah (Muslim law) court to legally renounce Islam. Many Christians prefer to remain silent converts rather than take their battle to the shariah courts, where apostasy or conversion out of Islam is punishable by whipping, fines, imprisonment and—in the most extreme application—death. In a country where Muslims account for more than half of the population, conversion from Islam is punished with a 5-year prison sentence and a $3,000 fine. A Malaysian Muslim who marries a non-Muslim and who converts the non-Muslim to Islam is rewarded with an apartment, a car, a one-time payment of $2,700, and a monthly stipend of $270.

The Maldives – In the island paradise visited by tens of thousands of tourists each year, Christianity is simply not tolerated. While local Christians – said to number around 300 out of a total population of 300,000 – do get together to worship, they do so at the risk of imprisonment or worse if discovered by the Muslim authorities. Bibles are banned, and tourists can be arrested for trying to bring them into the country.

And no doubt we all know what happens in Pakistan and Afghanistan, where just this week a Christian charity worker was gunned down by Taliban jihadists. And yet our liberal politicians still have their heads up their asses, making it politically incorrect to use jihad and islamic extremist when dealing with islamic extremists waging jihad on we infidels. For the record I have set foot in more than one of these countries on the list, and I have heard the stories told by the locals, cheering when an apostate is killed. These are the ‘moderate’ muslims.

    Yet our government continues to increase foreign aid to the Islamic world. In the end they are all going to stick together and turn on us.

    I have to agree with your comment Chris, they will join and turn against us no matter what we do. We can do only evil in the eyes of Islam, just because we do not follow the faith of Mohammed, fleas be upon him.
    Just imagine the outcry if America was to treat Muslims the way they treat Christians! The human rights groups would have a field day on us all, not that I would give a good g*$damn.  They must have a blind spot when it comes to oppression of Christians by Muslims.

    I think human rights groups are fighting in Iran and elsewhere on the behalf of minority populations. The question of concern is whether or not these states plan on changing any time soon.

    Jenny,
       As soon as the Islamic world catches up to our military power, we will see their true colors.

    Thanks, Chris. Re: intentions of Muslim communities in Europe — do you have some articles about this matter?

    all of this is funded by us thru our government.  Our government forbids us from drilling and using our oil, so the oil companies have to give all that money to the people in the world who hate us the most.  Also with chavez down south, we are the only country who pays full price for their oil in cash.

    if not for the money that the oil generates, I don’t think we would even know what a muslim was.

    cut off all the extra money, all the foreign aid (no more free money, free food, free medicine or technology).  we have even given them small business loans and supported their mortgage industry.  charge them full price and a little jizya tax for haveing to deal with them.  See what happens when their own leaders have to support, feed and house their own people.  those bank accounts would empty pretty fast.

    Just as us fighting over there keeps them busy away from us here, if they don’t have all that extra money to spend on fighting us, they will collapse.

    why do we let them set the price of oil?  who else is going to buy the millions of oil we buy everyday?  china and russia could use some but not that much.  boycott them and the supply line backs up.  where are they going to put it?  as the supply grows the price falls.  they need us more than we need them and the problems they cause.

    I advocate using the same laws against those citizens of countries like the ones you listed against them in this country.  What would be more fair than “turn about”?  Same, of course for all others too….like Mexico etc.  Problem is, that would be un-American. (wow, I just had a brain fart!  If we suggest to Obamasiah, Pelosi and Reid that it would be un-American, it would be signed into law almost instantly!)
