“If the West continues in this fatal way, there is a great risk that, due to a lack of birth, it will disappear, invaded by foreigners, just as Rome has been invaded by barbarians… My country is predominantly Muslim.

“Hardly anyone writes and speaks about the increasing attacks on Christian symbols. There is an eloquent silence in both France and Germany about the scandal of the desecrations and the origin of the perpetrators…. Not a word, not even the slightest hint that could in anyway lead to the suspicion of migrants… It is not the perpetrators who are in danger of being ostracized, but those who dare to associate the desecration of Christian symbols with immigrant imports. They are accused of hatred, hate speech and racism.” – PI News, March 24, 2019 quoted by Raymond Ibrahim in “European churches: Vandalized, defecated on, and torched every Day” – Gatestone Institute, April 14th, 2019.

“…in France, which has one of if not the largest Muslim populations in Western Europe, two churches are attacked every day. The same situation prevails in Germany, which also has an immense Muslim population… Before Christmas 2016, in the North Rhine-Westphalia region of Germany – where more than a million Muslims reside – some 50 public Christian statues (including of Jesus) were beheaded and crucifixes broken. In 2015, following the arrival of another million Muslim migrants to Dülmen, a local newspaper said ‘not a day goes by’ without attacks on Christian statues.” – Raymond Ibrahim, “Diabolical: Islam’s past and present attacks on European churches” – April 22nd, 2019.

Sri Lanka Bombings:

“The government of Sri Lanka has banned full face coverings, including but not limited to the Islamic burqa and niqab, as an emergency measure following the Easter Sunday terrorist attacks targeting Christians and tourists… President Maithripala Sirisena said the emergency measure would prohibit any garment which ‘hinders identification’ as a national security risk, after blasts which killed hundreds were attributed to the National Thowheed Jamath (NTJ) group.” – Jack Montgomery, “Sri Lanka bans Islamic face weils after deadly Easter bombings” – Breitbart, April 29th, 2019.

The government reportedly suspects that the bombers, all Sri Lankans, were members of ‘a domestic Islamist terror group named National Thowfeek Jamaath’… Yet Obama, Clinton, and other Democrats – including 2020 presidential contender Julián Castro – could not bring themselves to identify the victims of the attacks as ‘Christians,’ calling them ‘Easter worshippers’ instead…” – Joel B. Pollak, “Obama, Clinton, Democrats denounce attacks on Easter worshippers, not Christians” – Breitbart, April 22nd, 2010.
