The United States Embassy issued a warning of "imminent threat" for Uganda by the Al Shabaab Islamic terror group. Although Uganda has a majority-Christian population, Muslims are populated throughout the country in dense clusters, within which Christians face severe persecution. It is possible that an infrastructure is in place to support an attack equal or larger in scope than Nairobi's Westgate Mall massacre. Given Al Shabaab's great effort to avoid harming fellow Muslims in that attack, it is likely that any target in Uganda will be one with predominantly Christian personnel or symbolism. ICC encourages Christians in Uganda to be alert and cautious for suspicious persons or activities, to keep mobile phones at hand, and to closely monitor police and media updates, especially at worship this Sunday.

Reports recount severe incidents of Christian persecution perpetrated by minority Muslims in Uganda, primarily in the east. A predominantly Christian nation, Uganda is not a traditional home to acts of persecution; however, predominantly Islamic communities, in recent years, have created localized cultures of hostility that has led to vicious beatings of Christians, arson of Christian homes, honor killings, and a public out-lash against Christian business and education.

Raymond Ibrahim reports for Gatestone Institute that, “Half of Iraq's indigenous Christians are gone, due to the unleashed forces of jihad [holy war]. Many Christians fled to nearby Syria; yet, as the Assad regime comes under attack from al-Qaeda and others… Christians are experiencing a level of persecution unprecedented in the nation's modern history.” Ibrahim’s series, titled ‘Muslim Persecution of Christians,’ is published each month to document cases of persecution – whether it be general discrimination, arrests, or murder – committed by Muslims in majority Islamic countries, Asia and the West.
