Christians in Africa: "You have three days to go or you will be killed!"

Summary: 
  • "Christianity originated in the Middle East. Thus, the displacement or evacuation of Christians from the Middle East is very dangerous for the safety of the region... also in the Mediterranean Sea region. Europe is affected by this." — Egyptian Coptic Pope Tawadros II, in Germany, where he was inaugurating a new Coptic church for his exiled community. Deutsche Welle, May 14, 2019.

  • Regrettably, the tragedy of these Christian massacres is directly proportional to the neglect with which they are reported in the West.

  • "'Islamophobia' looms large; talk of 'Christophobia' is almost nonexistent". — Ross Douthat, "Are Christians Privileged or Persecuted?", The New York Times, April 23, 2019.

  • Algeria -- the country of origin of some of the Christian fathers such as Augustine of Hippo -- has become a country... where officially there are "no native Christians". How many other countries will meet the same fate? And will the West ever come to the help of their Christian brethren?
