Not One More Dime for Persecution

Burnt-church

Petition to Stop Giving Our Tax Dollars to Nations that Persecute Christians

Eight billion dollars.

That’s roughly the amount of money U.S. taxpayers have paid Pakistan as it persecutes Asia Bibi, a Christian mother of five sentenced to die for her faith.

How many billions are you willing to pay persecutors?

As a wave of persecution sweeps across the Middle East – and Christians flee for their lives – it’s time for the money to stop.

Already there is growing support for basic human rights and basic common sense on Capitol Hill.

Join the ACLJ and[over 132,000] as they demand the U.S. government stop funding nations who persecute Christians.

To Congress and President Obama:

We must stop sending billions of our taxpayer dollars to nations that persecute Christians.  It’s that simple.  Not one more dime for persecution.  Cut off American foreign aid to any country that persecutes Christians.

Withhold aid from regimes that persecute Christians, argues senior Conservative

Bible-burning

Britain should withhold aid to countries that persecute Christians, a senior Conservative has said.

Liam Fox, former Defence Secretary, said that it was “unacceptable” for taxpayers’ money to go to regimes that do not “represent our values” and refused to tolerate other religions.

“A lot of people find it increasingly unacceptable as we look round the world and we see persecution of Christians, for example, or persecution of other religious minorities. They say, ‘Why should our money be given to regimes and governments who are extremely intolerant when it comes to other people’s religions?’”

The Times reported that he singled out Pakistan and Somalia as countries that fell short of British “ethical values”.

A number of MPs have spoken out for Christians in the Middle East after Prince Charles last month warned of a “crisis” of organised persecution in the region.

The Prince of Wales said at a reception for Middle Eastern Christian leaders at Clarence House that “Christians in the Middle East are, increasingly, being deliberately targeted by fundamentalist Islamist militants.”

Days later the shadow foreign secretary, Douglas Alexander, in an article in the Sunday Telegraph, accused British politicians of having “forsaken” the cause of Christians in the Middle East.

He praised the Conservative Minister for Faith and Communities, Baroness Warsi, and the DUP MP Jim Shannon, for speaking out in Parliament and elsewhere for the rights of Christian minorities.

We believe this is something to keep your eye on. Be aware, it may ultimately affect you and may be a means to further endanger Christians. Countries involved are known to persecute Christians.

The common thread that binds the entire document together is the OIC’s repeated insistence that the main culprit responsible for “the institutionalization of Islamophobia” in Western countries is freedom of speech.
