    As a matter of interest, then, why have most of the articles you link/quote been so out of date?

    If that is assistance, then I hate to think what giving no assistance is.

    Oh, and the use of the reply function with zero attempt to engage with the content of the post that is ostensibly being responded to.

    It's extraordinarily rude.

    WHAT IS TRUE ISLAM....

    Persecution of Christians in Africa increased in 2012, according to the Open Doors 2013 World Watch List of the 50 countries where Christians face the most severe persecution. The number of African countries sharply increased due to the increasing influence of Islamist extremists. Mali is a newcomer on the list in No 7 position. Tanzania (24), Kenya (40), Uganda (47) and Niger (50) also moved onto the 2013 World Watch List, while Ethiopia rose strongly from 38 to 15. In addition, the small African country of Eritrea (10) made the Top 10 for the first time, and Libya climbed from Number 26 to 17.

    However, North Korea still holds the Number 1 position when it comes to persecution of Christians, now for the 11th consecutive year. Simply possessing a Bible can be a reason for a Christian to be executed or sent to a prison camp along with three generations of his or her family. It is believed that between 50,000 and 70,000 Christians suffer in horrific prison camps. The intense persecution has continued under new leader Kim Jong-Un - as a consequence, the number of defectors to China greatly decreased in 2012 and an estimated half of those who try to defect do not make it.

    Meanwhile back in Syria the anti-Christian rebels there have declared that Bibles are worse than chemical weapons. Says one report, "A video apparently made by some of the Islamists fighting and killing each other and the population in Syrian reveals quantities of Bibles and biblical materials, such as the Book of John, as a narrator describes them as being 'more dangerous than chemical weapons.'

    "The video appeared yesterday, just as reports were coming out of Syria about how the Islamist rebels fighting President Bashar al-Assad’s army were 'liberating' villages, and then forcing Christians there to convert to Islam or be beheaded."

    WHAT IT TRUE ISLAM.....

    “In December 2011 a Swedish mother-of-two was subjected to a brutal gang-rape by 12 Afghan immigrants in a refugee camp in Mariannelund. Reports stated ‘The rape was oral, anal and vaginal sometimes with three rapists inside her at the same time while everybody was cheering and clapping. The gruesome rape marathon lasted for 7 hours. 11 suspect may have been involved taking turns while drinking and getting high on drugs. The asylum seekers were cheering and clapping their hands during the rape marathon while calling the victim “whore” and “[bless and do not curse][bless and do not curse][bless and do not curse][bless and do not curse]”.’

    “According to Vimmerby Tidning ‘The woman went into shock while the rapes were still underway, and has since been in a heavily traumatised state. She is now subject to nightmares and panic attacks, and lives in a psychiatric clinic. She is bound to a wheelchair due to damages to her abdomen, and suffers from faecal incontinence.’ The main perpetrator Rafi Bahaduri, 25, had already committed four other rapes in Sweden. The case is not unique. There is a growing trend of gang-rapes perpetrated against white women by Muslim rapists.

    WHAT IS TRUE ISLAM......

    Khalil was being trained as a jihadist in Egypt. He was given the important assignment to write a book proving that the Bible couldn't be trusted, but he was afraid to even go near one. "Whoever reads this book comes under a spell!" he says in a video depicting his story at the website morethandreams.org He had no choice but to submit to his orders, but as he examined the claims of 'Isa and His death and resurrection-which aren't included in the Quran-Khalil began to question his own faith. One day after someone stole his briefcase containing his Bible and passport, he panicked and then decided to pray.

    That night, 'Isa came to him in a dream, telling him, "I'm the one you've been searching for." 'Isa told him to read his Bible and that he would find his missing copy in his closet. When he opened the door, it was there. Khalil's heart was transformed from one of hate and violence to love and compassion. Though most Muslims find Jesus and the Bible as the two biggest factors to reckon with in converting, they rarely wrestle with the means through which God is penetrating the Islamic world today. Indeed, dreams and visions have been a core part of Islam since its beginning.

    THE TRUE FACE OF ISLAM

    The British government has announced that schools will be required to teach "British values." The news comes after Islamists took over several schools in the United Kingdom. This alleged plot to turn British faith-based schools into Muslim training academies has been dubbed "Operation Trojan Horse." "Individuals with a religious motivation have taken public money and basically created religiously motivated schools that promote intolerance," Islamic expert
