    There are many Muslims who strongly dislike Christians. Some Muslims even hate Christians so much that they even become violence against them and burn their Bibles. One reason for this is that in the mosques and madrasas the Muslim clerics, as the imams who speak many awful and unproven terrible things against Christians and Christian doctrine. So much so the many Muslims get all worked up against Christians and Christian teachings and some those Muslims commit violent actions against Christians. Such false religious teachers, as those Muslim clerics, who speak to people unfounded and invalid evil things about Christians and Christian doctrines have been described in the Bible. For the Bible informs the reader in Second Peter 2:12. “They speak evil of things they do not understand, and will utterly perish in their own corruption.” [N.K.J.V.]
    It also should be make clear that in this specific above Bible verse, as well as in John 3:16. The word “Perish” does not mean loss of being but loss of well-being. As in going to ruin by ending up in languishing in torment in a terrible place of suffering that the Bible calls hell. Luke 16:19-31.

    Those violent and vicious Muslims in their murderous persecution of Christians aren’t really going to get away with their destruction of Christians. As the apostle Paul had written each individual Christian is actually, in the View of God, a temple of God. For to Christians, it is written in the Bible “Don’t you know that that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst? If anyone destroys God’s Temple, God will destroy that person; for God’s temple is sacred, and you together are that temple.” First Corinthians 3:16,17. As in “A man reaps what he sows.” Galatians 6:7.

  3. Somehow there’s a difference between the Christians who have been victimized by those who are “officially” Christians in the West. One group has nothing to do with the warmongers, as you mentioned. And, you’re correct that the Iraqi invasion, as with the rest of the Middle East intervention, was solely for greed and nothing else.

    Why did Christian American govt. of George Warmonger Bush invade Iraq and topple Saddam Hussein al’Tikriti from Baghdad in 2003 A.D.?

    During the reign of Saddam Hussein al’Tikriti, Iraqi women could go out after dark and Iraqi women could drive cars and Iraqi Christians could worship in their churches.

    Saddam Hussein al’Tikriti had Christians employed within his government and administration.

    Christian American govt. of George Warmonger Bush wanted free flow of Iraqi oil (i.e., looting other nations’ wealth).

    Along with the governments of Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the U.A.E. and the Jewish State of Israel, Christian American govt. promoted the creation of the Islamic State of Iraq, Libya and Syria after the complete destruction of Iraq of Saddam Hussein al’Tikriti.

    History is witness.

    Now, Christians in Middle East and elsewhere MUST reap the harvest of their plantation(s) of everlasting Christian greed.

    No one should shed tears for dying Christians in Middle East and elsewhere.

    Let Christians suffer the maximum way possible on earth.
