While Christians flee or die....

From Eric Margolis:

During the 1973 Arab-Israeli War, Syrian forces had surprised Israel and were fast approaching the edge of the steep Golan Heights, captured by Israel during the 1967 war. It seemed as if Syrian armor and infantry would retake Golan, then pour down into Israeli Galilee.
Soviet recon satellites observed Israel moving its nuclear-armed, 500km-range Jericho missiles out of protective caves and onto their launch pads. At the same time, Israel was seen loading nuclear bombs on their US-supplied F-4 fighter-bombers at Tel Nof airbase.
Believing Israel was about to use nuclear weapons against Syria and Egypt, Moscow put huge pressure on both to rein in their advancing forces. Damascus, already in range of Israeli artillery on Golan, ordered its armored forces on Golan to halt, allowing Israel to mount powerful counter-attacks and retake the strategic heights.
In 1981, Israel formally annexed the 580 sq. mile portion of Golan that it occupied. This illegal annexation was condemned by the United Nations, the United States and Europe’ powers. But Israel held on to Golan and implanted 50,000 there in some 41 subsidized settlements.
The world has pretty much forgotten how close it came to nuclear war in 1973 over Golan. The heights became a primary nuclear trigger point along with Kashmir, Germany’s Fulda Gap, and the DMZ, Korea’s inner border.
Golan recently resurfaced in the news when Israel’s rightwing prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, told Russia’s president, Vladimir Putin, that his nation would never return Golan to Syria. In a speech soon after, Netanyahu vowed Israel would hold on to Golan for “all eternity.” He also admitted for the first time that Israel had made “dozens” of cross-border attacks on Syria.

In fact, it’s pretty much clear that Israel has been quietly fueling the Syrian conflict by discreet arms and logistics support to so-called “moderate” Syrian rebels and lobbying for the war in Washington and with the US media.  Netanyahu has even said – with a straight face – that Israel cannot return Golan or even negotiate, until calm returns to Syria and Iraq.

Comments Patrick Foy on Mr Margolis' article:

As a side issue I would note that it does not matter who is elected U.S. Prez in 2016 when it comes to war and peace in the Middle East. Hildebeest Clinton, The Donald or Uncle Bernie. The ridiculously long and often entertaining political campaign is, at bottom, irrelevant. The White House and Capitol Hill are already Israeli occupied territory and, like the Golan, will remain  so.

"While Christians flee or die.."

This is a premonitory title for what's coming soon to a theater near you. Unfortunately Christians have neglected to take action regarding anti-Christian hatred, and if they don't, it will soon be too late.
They have ignored or dismissed anti-Christian websites which are proliferating like mushrooms all over the internet.

One such dangerous site is Disqus "Religion" Channel, which is in fact a portal of anti-Christian hate speech. It's on a scale I've never seen before, and of an unbelievable virulence. It's clear that they are trying to influence people to hate Christians and this is hate speech according to the law.

They are openly calling for forbidding Christian prozelytising, which means they want to fobid even private Christian education.
They are also openly calling for forbidding Christianity, using all the tricks in the book and lies and denials of reality known to mankind.

Something should be done before it's too late.

What you write is all too believable and, yes, much of it is already coming to pass.
