Sarkozy: Christians In The Middle East Are Victims Of ' Religious Cleansing'

French President Nicolas Sarkozy was unusually frank in pointing out the plight of Christians in the Middle East, who are being targeted by adherents of the Religion of Peace and Rapidly becoming a disappearing species.

"We cannot accept and thereby facilitate what looks more and more like a particularly perverse program of cleansing in the Middle East, religious cleansing," said the French president, at an address to religious leaders on the day Coptic Christians, who follow the Orthodox liturgy celebrate Christmas.

This was a response to a number of attacks on Christians in the Muslim world during the Christmas holidays, including an attack on a Coptic church in the Egyptian city of Alexandria on January 1 that killed 21 people and a horrendous attack on a Catholic church in Baghdad that took the lives of 68 worshipers and injured hundreds.

Nor are these isolated events, either in Iraq, Egypt, Lebanon, The 'Palestinian' occupied territories of the Holy Land in Gaza, or any other areas where the remnant of what was once a major home of Christianity survives.

In fact, the violence is spreading beyond the Middle East and into Europe. Police in France and other European countries including Britain have reported a number of threats to Coptic churches and have bolstered security. French security sources launched a terror investigation this week after a priest received online threats against his Coptic church in France.

President Sarkozy stated, "The threats that targeted the Coptic churches in France are unacceptable and I have asked the government to take them very seriously."

Those who died in Alexandria and Bagdad were "collectively our martyrs", said Sarkozy. "They are the martyrs of the freedom of conscience. The rights that are guaranteed in our country to all religions must be reciprocally guaranteed in other countries," he said.

Interesting choice of language, to use the term 'martyrs', right out of the typical Islamist lexicon. However, his idea that non-Muslims are going to receive the same rights in the Muslim world that Muslims do in the West is pure fantasy, and Sarkozy has to be aware of that.

Ditto this statement: "The Muslim community in France is horrified by these crimes committed in the name of Islam."

Really? Have you got any evidence of that, Monsieur Le President? And if you have, isn't it odd you couldn't find a Muslim leader to say that?

please helps me write more gooder!

Yes, I had seen that.

I'll even assume it's true ( al Ahrum is not the most truthful or reliable of publications, and Egypt is not exactly a country with a free press).

Unfortunately there are many more who are fully prepared to act on what's in the Qu'ran regarding non-believers,an dto follow Mohammed's example as given in the Hadiths.

And that's why Christians in the Middle East are fleeing, just as Sarkozy said.

The Jews have already been ethnically cleansed - now, unfortunately it is the Christian's turn.
