No story in our time has been more skillfully hidden than the story of Muslim persecution of Christians. There is apparently no place in the Muslim world -- not Sudan, not Egypt, not Pakistan, not anywhere between -- where Christians are not at risk of their lives. Anyone in the West who knows how to read is aware of this, but, with a few notable exceptions, almost no one talks about it. And that includes, of course, a good many so-called leaders of the American Christian community. We are told again and again in books about Islam that Christians and Jews are tolerated as dhimmis -- people who are allowed to live as Jews or Christians so long as they pay the jizya, the required tax on these two groups. But that is evidently not true; a dhimmi can become a martyr in the blink of an eye if the authorities choose to cease the "toleration" and begin the murder. Those among us who dare not raise a peep about this hellish situation are no better than the Europeans who failed to raise a peep about the Nazi murder of Jews. If there is, in the future, such a thing as the writing of history (instead of the writing of propaganda), history will not look kindly on us.
