Christians in the Holy Land and all the Middle East face increasing dangers and persecution from extremists claiming to enforce the teachings of Muhammed and the requirements of the Muslim faith. This has increased dramatically with the rise of ISIS in Iraq and Syria. To a lesser degree, Hezbollah and Hamas have been pursuing a similar campaign, against both Jews and Christians in Israel and the West Bank. In all three cases, the teachings of Muhammed have been distorted and twisted to fit a radical interpretation of Islam. The following article, taken from the Wall Street journal’s Commentary page, deals with aspects of that distortion and the environment facing the followers of Christ.
