Thank you for his article another helpful aid would be the continued reporting
of the persecution.
And when Iraqi Christians relocate to Dearborn Michigan, campaigning politicians
in neighboring states accuse them of instituting Sharia Law. Let's be mindful of
not continuing the persecution once they manage to get here based upon their
country of origin.
re: Cedarite | 12:32 p.m. Nov. 30, 2010 Christians don't practice
Sharia law. If they did; they'd be Muslims.
To many Americans, an Arab is a Muslim is a Terrorist. It doesn't matter that
they may be Christian. They are still accused of wanting to install Sharia Law
just for the political exploitation that can be gained by certain nativist
elements.We have Tea Party Republicans, regardless of how many times
the claim has been refuted, who continue to insist the Barack Obama is both a
Kenyan and a Muslim. So just because Arab Christians don't practice Sharia Law
doesn't mean that they cannot be accused of "anti-American
sentiments."In times of fear run rampant, anyone who is somehow
different is usually accused of any manner of sins. I'm waiting for
Chinese-Americans to become the target of Right Wing hate speech because of the
increasing power of China on the world stage and the economic hold they have on
