I Have Legitimate Concerns About Islam And That's Not Bigotry

Campaign Of Islamic Persecution In Ethiopia... Even in a country in which Muslims are a minority, many of them are having the nerve to severely persecute adherents of the country's majority faith.

Excerpted from "Ethiopian Christians face tough ultimatum"
Charlie Butts - 1/29/2011

"...According to Jonathan Racho of International Christian Concern (ICC), the incidents follow a familiar pattern. "Christians in the Ethiopian city of Besheno...are being harassed and physically abused after Muslims posted notices on the doors of Christian homes, warning them to convert to Islam, leave the city, or face death," the ICC spokesman reports.

He says Christians continue to suffer repeated attacks in the town, "and that has forced three Christian leaders to flee out of the city because of the Islamic pressure. Also, two Christians have been forced to convert to Islam...."

Excerpted from "Injustice in Ethiopia"

"Muslims in Ethiopia are forcing a difficult ultimatum upon the country's Christians: convert, leave the city, or die. Besheno Muslims, who comprise nearly 94 percent of the population, have made their message known to believers, as they have placed notices on doors and physically attacked several believers in the southern Ethiopian rural city, where there are only about 30 Christians...."

Excerpted from "Muslim mob assaults Christian students in Ethiopia"
Charlie Butts - 3/6/2011

"Christian students recently suffered an attack by a Muslim mob in Ethiopia. The students were on a mission trip to a Muslim village when they were attacked. Jonathon Racho of International Christian Concern tells OneNewsNow they were handing out Bibles and witnessing to villagers. "Then one of the villagers angrily argued with the Christians,” Racho explains, “and then he incited the Muslim mob to attack the Christians. Then the attackers shouted 'Allah Akbar,' which means 'God is great,' as they hurled stones at the Christians and beat them with rods."

Seventeen people were injured...."

"Persecution of Christians upped in Ethiopia"
Becky Yeh - 3/14/2011

"Christians in the Jima province in western Ethiopia are seeing their region ravaged by Islamic extremists who have killed one Christian, burned down dozens of churches, a Bible school and an orphanage, and destroyed 50 homes belonging to believers. International Christian Concern reports that the attacks began March 2 after Islamic extremists blamed believers for desecrating the Quran -- an action that Jonathan Racho, regional manager for Africa with ICC, says was actually done by Muslims....

The attacks, which have spread to neighboring villages, have claimed 55 Christian churches and have left 3,000 people homeless.... In 2006, Muslims attacked Christians in the region, killing dozens and razing churches in the process."

Response in Ethiopia 'too little, too late'
Charlie Butts - 3/17/201

"...The violence is believed to have been launched by an extremist Muslim group which falsely accused Christians of desecrating the Quran. The attacks spread to several villages, leaving scores of people dead and thousands homeless. Jonathan Racho of International Christian Concern (ICC) summarizes what happened. "The incidents started on March 2," he tells OneNewsNow. "They actually attacked several Christians and destroyed churches and one Bible school, one orphanage, and one church office."

During one week with no action by authorities, a total of 69 churches -- as well as the homes of 30 church leaders -- were torched...."

In other words they have been exposed to Islam since it's inception. I wonder why they act like that?
