Muslims have torched dozens of Christian churches in Ethiopia in recent weeks and at least one person has been killed.

Anti-Christian violence has arisen in the traditionally Christian country where once Jews also lived in harmony. Muslims make up but one-third of the total population but more than 90 percent of the population in certain areas. One of those areas is Besheno where, on November 9, all the Christians in the city woke up to find notes on their doors warning them to convert to Islam, leave the city or face death. Three Christian leaders were forced to flee the city and two Christians were forced to convert to Islam. Christians in Besheno have been targeted by Muslims for many years. On May 21, 2004, Muslims murdered the 7 year-old daughter of Evangelical pastor Tesfaye Hobe. Muslims continuously attack Christians for listening to Christian songs and watching Christian videos.


In itself this isn't particularly remarkable, nor is the fact that you most likely haven't heard about it on the news. Such attacks are a matter of routine throughout much of the Ummah, and the western media systematically covers up news that would show Muslims in a bad light.

What makes it especially interesting, though, as FrontpageMag notes, is the way Islam came to Ethiopia.

Around 615, when the pagan Quraysh were persecuting Muhammad’s outnumbered Muslim followers in Arabia, some fled to Ethiopia seeking sanctuary. The Christian king, or “Negus” of Ethiopia, welcomed and protected these Muslim fugitives, ignoring Quraysh demands to return them—and thus winning Muhammad’s gratefulness.

So a kindly Christian king granted Muslim asylum-seekers refuge in Ethiopia because he felt sorry for them. And now, centuries later, his people are murdered and their Christian churches torched because of this solitary act of kindness. And it will be the same in Europe. The compassionate impulses that have led us to allow millions of Mohammedans to settle in Europe will ensure that future generations of Europeans face persecution at the hands of the Muslims just as Ethiopians are doing now. Unless we rid our continent of the Mohammedan presence within the next few decades, before it has become too late.
