And where are the Orthodox? We should be leading the way in educating American Christians as to why Islam is incompatible with Christianity, and reaching out with missionary endeavors to Muslims and others who are seeking for the Truth.
My book — Facing Islam - What the Ancient Church has to say about the Religion of Muhammad — was withheld from publication by a major Orthodox Christian publisher in the United States because they could not get the blessing of their ruling hierarch to go to press. The fear was that my book might provoke hostilities against Orthodox communities in the Middle East.
Forgive me for speaking plainly, Saidna, but I have news for you: Islamic hostilities against Orthodox Christians started nearly 1400 years ago, and have been aggressively magnified in recent years, without any assistance from my book. All it takes to provoke a Muslim attack on a Christian is a scorched shirt.
Meanwhile, as seen in the below analysis by Ryan Mauro, there are far too many Christians in America who are so profoundly ignorant of Islam, the Muslim Brotherhood, and even the roots of their own faith, as to side with a rabidly anti-Christian force, one which is also possessed of genocidal antisemitic tendencies, whose goal is global domination.
Large American Christian Orgs Support the IslamistsBattle lines have been drawn within America's Christian community over groups tied to the Muslim Brotherhood. On the one side are groups like the Presbyterian Church USA and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops who are allied with Islamists and even atheists in denouncing those of us raising concern about the influence of Brotherhood-tied groups. On the other are conservative Christian activists like American Family Association and American Values.
The Muslim Public Affairs Council works in tandem with the other Brotherhood-tied groups. One of its original founders and current Senior Adviser, Maher Hathout, is a long-time Brotherhood ideologue. He was imprisoned in Egypt for his involvement with the group and came to the U.S. in 1971. In 1998, he stated that he disagrees with the terrorist group Hezbollah on some matters but "on the issue of fighting to liberate their land and attacking only armed forces, this is legitimate, this is an American value-freedom and liberty."
