Giving hope to persecuted Christians since 1995

ICC Note: As ISIS has executed three Christians on camera and called for the payment of a ransom or nearly 200 more will be killed, leaders still remain unable to move forward with any real solutions. There has repeatedly been a rejection of the idea that Christians face any particular threat to their existence. Yet, ISIS repeatedly emphasizes the religious nature of their actions.

10/10/2015 Syria (Fox News) – A few days ago ISIS executed three Assyrian Christians, and I bet you haven’t heard a thing about it.

This is because the world is becoming increasingly numb to a drastic escalation in the persecution of Christians – and other religious minorities — all over North Africa and the Middle East.

Christian pastors are unjustly imprisoned in the Sudan and in Iran, Christian converts have been executed by Islamic extremists in more than a dozen countries, hundreds of churches and Christian homes have been burned across Africa and in the United States college students in Oregon were allegedly targeted for their profession of faith in Jesus Christ by Christopher Harper-Mercer.

In the recently released ISIS execution video, the three Assyrians are predictably crouched in orange jumpsuits as they are forced to state their name and their Christian faith before they are shot in the back of the head.
Before their execution they were literally forced to say “I am a Christian.”

They were killed for their faith, yet there remains a prevailing sense of denial in Washington that Christians are particularly threatened.
