The silent killing of Christians

'"Few people realize that we are today living through the largest persecution of Christians in history,"

Bruce Thornton, research fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, wrote on the institute's Web site. "Estimates of the numbers of Christians under assault range from 100 [million] to 200 million. According to one estimate, a Christian is martyred every five minutes."

It's odd that prominent Christians like President Barack Obama and Pope Francis have been utterly silent about this humanitarian tragedy.

As Kirsten Powers wrote recently in USA Today, German Chancellor Angela Merkel asserted late last year that "Christianity is the most persecuted religion in the world," while former French President Nicholas Sarkozy warned in a 2011 speech that "Christians face a particularly wicked program of cleansing in the Middle East, religious cleansing."'

It seems that Muslims actually ethnically cleansing Christians is not newsworthy but Muslim false claims of Jews persecuting Palestinians is.
