A genocide against Christians is going on in the Muslim world. That’s according to the Somali-born former Dutch MP and writer Ayaan Hirsi Ali in Newsweek.
According to Ms Hirsi Ali, since the Arab spring, Western governments and media have too often portrayed Muslims as heroes or victims, and they forget that thousands of Christians in Muslim countries are oppressed or murdered because of their faith.
According to the former politician, who now lives in the United States, so-called Islamophobia isn’t the same thing as what she calls ‘Christophobia’: the oppression of Christian minorities in the Islamic world. The fate of Christians and other religious minorities in the Islamic world is at stake, she says.
“The conspiracy of silence about the violent expression of religious intolerance must stop.”
