Why is the Christian World Silent?

The following report appeared in our press this weekend. "A Palestinian Christian activist was killed this weekend in Gaza. Rami Khader Ayyad, head of the Protestant Holy Bible Society in Gaza City, had been threatened by militants who wanted him to stop selling Christian religious materials. Earlier this year, someone blew up the Society's shop in Gaza City. The 32-year-old was abducted Saturday night, and found dead yesterday with gunshot and stab wounds, the Associated Press reports. AFP says his body, which showed signs of torture, was found by Hamas-affiliated police. 'We will pursue anyone who is found to be involved in this case,' the regime said in a statement. 'We will not be merciful with those who abuse the security and stability of our people.' Ayyad's wife is pregnant with their third child."

The deafening silence to this and other acts against the Christian community in Gaza is truly amazing. Has Europe given up it's Christian traditions?

The only country in the whole Middle East where Christians live at peace and are increasing their numbers is - guess where - yes of course Israel
