Hungary Opens Office to Help Persecuted Christians

Oct 17th, 2016 | By | Category: Weekly Washington Updates

Hungary became the “first government to open an office specifically to address the persecution of Christians in the Middle East and in Europe.”

Hungary’s Minister for Human Resources, Zoltan Balog, said:

“Today, Christianity has become the most persecuted religion, where out of five people killed [for] religious reasons, four of them are Christians. In 81 countries around the world, Christians are persecuted, and 200 million Christians live in areas where they are discriminated against. Millions of Christian lives are threatened by followers of radical religious ideologies.”

Hungary’s prime minster, Victor Orban, received backlash by the EU for saying Europe should focus on helping Christians “before helping millions of Muslims coming into Europe.”

Christian minorities are being singled out and persecuted because of their religious identity. Because of this, Christian refugees should receive greater priority over Muslim migrants. As Front Page Magazine reports, “Even before the Islamic State was formed, Christians were and continue to be targeted by Muslims—Muslim individuals, Muslim mobs, Muslim regimes, and Muslim terrorists, from Muslim countries of all races (Arab, African, Asian)—and for the same reason: they are infidel number one.”

TNazarene_Pin_Ad_300pxhe violence happening to Christians in the Middle East is a direct result of Western countries interfering with nations in the Middle East to spread democracy. In the words of Raymond Ibrahim, “All they did is unleash the jihadi forces that the dictators had long kept suppressed. Now the Islamic State is deeply embedded in all three nations, enslaving, raping, and slaughtering countless Christian “infidels” and other minorities.”

Hungary is the first nation to open up an office dedicated to persecuted Christians. Minister Balog said “Our interest not only lies in the Middle East but in forms of discrimination and persecution of Christians all over the world. It is therefore to be expected that we will keep a vigilant eye on more subtle forms of persecution within European borders.”
