-Persecution of Christians Continues to be Ignored

by Dr. D ~ March 24th, 2014


The ongoing persecution of Christians around the world continues to be substantially ignored by the media and the Obama administration. Most of the trouble for Christians is happening in Muslim dominated countries which is one of the reasons the MSM in America ignores most of the stories for the fear that the truth will lead to an escalation of so-called ‘Islamophobia’ in the USA.

Every morning when I go on line I find a new stories of Christians being killed, jailed, and injured for their faith, and churches being bombed and burned. They really are not too hard to find except in our newspapers and major media productions. One has to go to foreign news sources in the UK, Africa, India, and Australia or Christian websites like VOM Persecution blogBosNewsLife, Middle East Forum. Also I find a lot of Christian persecution news on the following sites but usually go to their article sources for the unvarnished truth: Jihad Watch, and Atlas Shrugs.

Here’s today’s featured story from the Middle East Forum: “Why the Media Doesn’t Cover Jihadist Attacks on Middle East Christians

Well worth reading. Here’s a quote from the article:

The media simply cannot portray radical Muslim persecution of Christians—which in essence and form amount to unprovoked pogroms—as a "land dispute" or a product of "grievance" (if anything, it is the ostracized and persecuted Christian minorities who should have grievances). And because the media cannot articulate radical Islamic attacks on Christians through the "grievance" paradigm that works so well in explaining the Arab-Israeli conflict, their main recourse is not to report on them at all.  …

If mainstream media were to report honestly on Christian persecution at the hands of radical Islamists so many bedrocks of the leftist narrative currently dominating political discourse would crumble, first and foremost, the idea that radical Islamic intolerance is a product of "grievances," and that Israel is responsible for all Jihadist terrorism against it.

Response: According to the writer of this article, the American MSM is so vested in presenting the Muslim violence of the Middle East as a product of “grievance,” particularly the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, that it is impossible for them to shift the narrative toward Christians having “grievances.” Particularly against the same radical Muslims including the Palestinians who receive a pass because of their own perceived “grievances.” Therefore the story does not get covered since it could result in decreased sympathy for the Palestinians and other poor and ‘subjected’ Muslims.

I am sure that is one of the reasons that Christian persecution does not get sufficiently covered by the American media along with the perceived problem of ‘Islamophobia’ and the fact that many in the MSM have very few ties with Christianity in America. Not only that, but American Christians seem to be on the opposite side of every political and social issue from the secular progressive folks that dominate the media in the USA.              *Top
