Israeli Air Force jets bombed targets in the northern Gaza Strip early Saturday morning following rocket fire late Friday at cities in southern Israel.
The IDF said in a statement that Israeli planes struck three targets in the northern Gaza Strip belonging to Hamas. Local reports identified the locations as near the Gaza Strip town of Jabaliya.
Not only does the West facilitate the persecution of Christians in the Middle East, but in the West as well.
According to a recent NPR report, the U.S. supported “moderate” coalition fighting both Bashar Assad and the Islamic State in Syria “has extremists in its own ranks who have mistreated Christians and forced them out of their homes” — just as the Islamic State (IS) has done.
Christian minorities forced out of their homes who manage to reach Western nations — including the United States — sometimes encounter more trouble.
Despite having family members to sponsor them, a group of 20 Christians who fled the Islamic State in Iraq have been imprisoned indefinitely, some since February, at the Otay Detention Facility in San Diego, even though they have local family members and Christian leaders who vouch for them (a primary way that the majority of detained foreign nationals are released is to the supervision of American citizens who vouch for them).
