Prophecy Sign: Increasing global Christian persecution
No Christians in the Middle-East in as little as two years? The birthplace of Christianity which has had believers since the creation of the Church may see the last of Christian driven out.
'No more Christians in Mideast within 2 years'
If the U.S. and international community do not intervene, Christians may be driven out of the Middle Eastern Arab countries within two years, warned Lebanese parliamentarian Samy Gemayel during a radio interview Sunday. Gemayel, a senior member of the Phalange Party, descends from a historic Lebanese Christian family.
Speaking on “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio,” broadcast on New York’s AM 970 The Answer and Philadelphia’s NewsTalk 990, Gemayel warned Christians and moderate Muslims are victims of two extremist forces fighting each other. He stated: “Today all the moderates in the region are taken between two big extremists powers. On one side you have ISIS and on the other side you have the Islamic state of Iran. “So you have two Islamic states with two very extremist ideologies fighting against each other. And the moderates are stuck in a sandwich between these two powers.” Amid widespread reports of Christian persecution at the hands of Islamic extremists, Gemayel complained regional Christian leaders and minority communities are not receiving enough support from the U.S. and international community.
