VIDEO: 'Wasn't it always the Christians who were doing the persecuting?'

This is a must-watch interview with author and scholar Raymond Ibrahim, who in just a few minutes encapsulates the reasons why you must buy, read and share his landmark book, Crucified Again: Exposing Islam's New War on Christians.

Raymond covers the horrific breadth of Muslim persecution of Christians, from Egypt and Syria and the Middle East, to northern and Sub-Saharan Africa, and east across Asia and Southeast Asia.

The highlight for me was when the interviewer, at about the 1:23 mark, bluntly asks, "Throughout history, wasn't it always the Christians who were doing the persecuting? Why does it seem now the tables have turned?"

Raymond actually chuckles a little as she puts the question out there, not in any way ridiculing the host, but welcoming the question as an opportunity to explain the false Western paradigm, which thinks of Christians as the aggressors, and Muslims as the victims.

For some reason I couldn't get the embed code to work, so watch the video, buy the book, inform your friends and family.
