Within the next few years, if figures put out there show the reality, Christians in the Middle East, especially in Syria, will be less than 10% of their number from a few years ago.
If one wants to look at the way some look at this, the exodus of Christians from the ME is a good thing because if we do come to the big bang war which many think is imminent, the less Christians in those hellholes the better it will be to drop bombs on those God-forsaken lands. There won't be many Christians left on whom the scum can take revenge. However, if such a time does materialize in the near future, many of us would still feel sorry for the secular progressive Muslims caught up in the madness of the believers belonging to the worst cult on Earth.

The conference was motivated by the increasing lack of tolerance displayed by violent Islamists in their efforts to deprive the Christian sects, which until now were part of the Arab national identity, of their right to religious and physical existence in the Islamic territories of the Middle East. Syrian novelist Colette Khoury said that Syrian Christians could no longer be silent. They would no longer be the victims of the situation in Syria caused by the Islamist takeover and its political agenda. She said that the Christians in Syria would do whatever necessary to prevent the disintegration of Syria as their homeland and keep it from falling into the hands of the Islamists. She accused the United States of apathy and indifference to the fate of the Christians, who had always been a target for Islamist extermination.....
