Around the world persecution of religious groups is growing. I have a copy of the Open Doors World Watch List 2018. The Socialist paradise of North Korea remains number one on the list – but only just. Afghanistan is only one point below it. In North Korea, due to constant indoctrination, neighbours and family members, including children, are highly watchful and report anything suspicious to the authorities. If Christians are discovered, they are deported to labour camps as political criminals or killed on the spot; their families share their fate. You can read a North Korean individuals gut wrenching story which had me in tears on reading it, here. Shockingly India, the world’s largest democracy, has risen to its highest ever position of 11, one place above Saudi Arabia. Radical Hindu groups are increasingly enjoying impunity when they harass Muslims or Christians. In sixth place is Eritrea where arrests and forced disappearances are common. On finding this out I wondered what kind of government it had and after some research I discovered that Eritrea is a One Party Democracy with a governing party called the People’s Front for Democracy and Justice. Only socialists could be that ironic!
Also of concern is the increase in religious persecution in Great Britain. I feel I have to speak out rather than wait for them to come for the Anglicans. Muslims are persecuted with an increase in violence and attacks against mosques. The majority of attacks on Muslims in this country are a result of the rhetoric spoken by far right groups and cockwombles like Tommy Robinson but the persecution against other faith’s comes from the Corbynista left. Here the Telegraph reports
Anti-Semitism in the Labour Party has helped to fuel a record number of attacks on the Jewish community, a charity has warned. The Community Security Trust (CST), which monitors anti-Semitism, recorded 1,382 anti-Semitic incidents nationwide in 2017 which they said was “unprecedented”.
The left’s most favoured form of anti Semitism is cloaked in support for Palestine. It is no secret that I am pro Palestinian and as a result I can clearly state that many people in the Momentum controlled Labour Party use the Palestinians plight to cloak their vile anti Semitism. I have come across such people and the cloak hides nothing. They damage the Palestinian course due to being driven by a hatred of Jews rather than a concern about the plight of the Palestinians. As a matter of fact, they don’t give a damn about the Palestinians.
Another example of religious persecution is demonstrated in the constant attacks by Corbyn’s henchtrots on Jacob Rees Mogg. They are not attacking him because of his political beliefs. They are attacking him because of his religious beliefs. The intolerant left are intolerant of Roman Catholics. What happened at the West of England University wasn’t political intimidation. It was religious persecution. It was a hate crime.
We as a civilised society should never be silent or do nothing about religious persecution in any of its forms.
