BBC has just published an article titled “Christian persecution at near genocide levels.” In a few places there is discrimination against Christians & in fewer places persecution. But the notion of widespread Christian genocides is just arrant rubbish peddled by rightwing forces to counter the reality of actual widespread persecution of & genocides against Muslims, including but not only under the guise of the ‘war on terror’. It’s comparable in its malignancy & idiocy to the notion of reverse racism against white people leading to white genocide. In a political environment where this bullshit is not countered by public protest because progressive forces have fallen under the sway of Islamophobia, all sorts of reactionary forces are emboldened, including anti-Semites, homophobes, women haters.
