Year of the Sword: A Century of Christian Genocide | Frontpage Mag

This important contribution to genocide studies documents how the world’s oldest Christian communities—variously referred to as Chaldeans, Syriacs, and Arameans, but best known as Assyrians—were, along with the Armenians, “victims of the [Ottoman] plan for exterminating Christianity, root and branch,” to quote Lord Bryce, circa. 1920.  In fact, as half of the Assyrian population was massacred—going from 600,000 to 300,000 in 1915-18—relative to their numbers, no other Christian group, including the Armenians, suffered as much under the Ottomans.

The Latin crusaders who went to Byzantium and on to the Near East were pretty keen on killing other sorts of Christians.

And then there were the Albigensian crusades.

The Thirty Years War.

And on and on and on.

No one cares about Christian genocide. Now it's all about immigration without consequences for the immigrants (including those who would kill Christians), so get with it.
