The Hungarian Government Betrays the Persecuted Christians

Keith Davies Executive Director of Rescue Christians

Two weeks ago I traveled with great hope to Budapest, I had been invited by the Hungarian government. I was hopeful that the government of Hungary based on its recent statements of support for the persecuted; who refused to be bullied by the EU and because of its past history from the threat of the Islamic empire would be a beacon of light to the persecuted church, alas I was so very wrong. A darkness not seen since the 1930s and 40s has now covered Europe. The Christians of the Middle East, Far East and Africa are doomed to the same fate as the Jews unless we can find countries who are righteous. Europe has turned its back on its Christian brethren who are in dire need of rescue.

On the evening of my arrival at the informal dinner gathering, prior to the actual conference there was circulated by the Hungarian government a proposed declaration which was obviously concocted in consultation with the leaders of the Catholic and Orthodox churches whose agenda is not to save Christian lives but to preserve the Christian presence in Iraq and Syria at all costs, without any reality to the situation. The leaders in the Vatican and the centers of Orthodoxy wish to ignore the plight of its own people in favor of money and politics. This defies logic and the suffering of their people. The conference focused primarily on how to preserve the Christians in Iraq and Syria and only two speakers a member of the Hungarian Parliament Dr. Imre and I spoke with the reality of what is happening to the Christians in Muslim majority countries.

We submitted a petition to the government requesting emergency assistance to 25 Pakistani Christian families in Bangkok needing a safe haven. It is two weeks and we have received no response to our petition. The Hungarian government has been pressured by the EU to take Muslim refugees and they have refused but have indicated they are willing to help the Christians instead. This is a bare face lie! The Hungarian government is playing political games to avoid helping anyone. They have no interest in helping Christians, they as per the usual politicians, they talk a good game but there is no real action as to what is actually needed to alleviate the suffering of the persecuted. Below is the official declaration from the Hungarian government and see for your self the non-sense that they are promoting. You will then see my response to their proposal with my own proposal, which I requested they add to their declaration which they refused.

(Finalized)Common Declaration

Participants of the Budapest conference entitled ’Reinforced Cooperation – New Ways of Working Together to help persecuted and discriminated Christian communities’ make a common declaration on the following and agree on the below actions to be taken. This common declaration is made with special concern to the situation of Christians in the Middle-East. Ever increasing evidence points to the fact that among the gravest and most deep- seated problems of the 21st century so far are the abuse of religion and the practice of restricting and denying religious freedom. Regrettably, in our times, there is a rise of intolerance against religious minorities. Pew Forum statistics show that almost ¾ of the world’s population live in areas with high or very high restrictions on religion or hostilities against religious communities. Christian communities are not the only ones to suffer, but are often a primary target of such hostilities. Over the last couple of years, more than half of Christians indigenous to Syria and Iraq have been forced to leave their homes and seek temporary refuge in neighbouring countries or other parts of the world as a result of this persecution. –

The participants of the conference agree that the persecuted Christian communities need to be primarily helped in their indigenous land. The return of Christian communities to the recently liberated towns must be facilitated through international guarantees of security and protection and the initiation of the rebuilding process. The participants of the conference are committed to – through their work and connections – –

facilitate peace amongst Christians and other religious and ethnic communities in the Middle-East, as a matter of urgency. Christian communities enduring multiple threats can only return to their towns in the atmosphere of trust and reconciliation and prospects of secure and peaceful living in the area; –

support the execution of international political guarantees. Further, the international community must ensure meaningful representation of all local communities at every level of local policing and governance; –

advocate and speak up on behalf of the prosecuted and discriminated communities, especially Christian minorities. We add our voice to that of many Europeans who are becoming sensitised to the challenges that are often faced by religious minorities and the need to help those in need

advocate for the recognition of the atrocities as genocide and crimes against humanity and war crimes for what they are. This includes the recognition of the atrocities committed by the so called Islamic State (Daesh) against Christian minorities in the Middle-East as genocide. Common steps need to be taken to urge the international community to condemn the gross acts of violence committed in Syria and Iraq and to ensure justice for the perpetrators and complicitous actors at the International Criminal Court through local criminal procedures; –

work to engage education, media and the new tools of communication to raise awareness of the persecution and discrimination of Christians and the associated danger to international peace and security; –

strengthen the inter-organisational cooperation in the area of investigating and reporting persecution of Christian communities and other atrocities committed on grounds of religion; –

work towards a sustainable solution for the persecuted Christian communities to ensure that they could peacefully live in their indigenous land. The right to return of those who were forcibly displaced must be preserved and protected; – emphasize that freedom of religion is a fundamental human right. Nothing can justify the threatening of the life of the other and the deployment of violent means against communities of different religions. –

Furthermore, they are committed to facilitate a wider alliance and cooperation of experts, researchers, politicians, governmental and ecclesiastical actors that have the expertise and knowledge of the situation of Christians in the East and the West. Budapest, January 27th, 2017. The Undersigners: (requested participants to sign but our organization will refuse to sign this proposal because it does not help any of the people who are suffering)

Below was my response prior to receiving the above finalized declaration

From Keith Davies the Executive Director of Rescue Christians

I greatly appreciate the government interviewing and getting the feedback of the churches in question to come up with a policy for the persecuted of the Middle East, however I would like to point some issues of which you may not be aware concerning Christian refugees who currently are not represented in your proposed policies.

It is very understandable that priests and bishops from the Levant wish to continue the Christian culture and heritage of the area. The same argument could have been made for the Jews of Europe after the Second World War, but most Jews that survived decided to settle in Israel or the United States. The nightmare of their experience was too much to wish to return to their previous life.

Our organization deals on a day-to- day basis with the actual Christian refugees in Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Thailand and other Eastern countries. Many have tried to register with the UNHCR but are discriminated against because the administration of the UN, who run the UNHCR where the Christians are applying for asylum, are Muslim and they do not deal fairly with the Christian cases. This is why in the United States only nine Syrian Christian refugees were admitted out of 10,000 when the figure should be at least 1,000 based on the population split of Syria.

So not only have these people had to flee because of persecution in their home country, but they also now face a new persecution with discrimination by the UN, the very organization that is meant to help them. In Bangkok, we have documented evidence of this and in Turkey we know Muslim refugees get their cases dealt with relatively quickly and the Christians get ignored, which is evidence on its own.

I would like to point out that around 50% of the 500,000 Christians in Iraq fled that country prior to ISIS even coming to power and did so during the American occupation after the end of the Second Gulf War. The remainder of the Christians, about 250,000 of them, were the ones sticking it out but were decimated when ISIS went on their conquering rampage. Their livelihoods were destroyed, so even if you help build a church and some housing how do they make a living? Further the security situation for them is untenable at this time and well into the future.

There are less than 80,000 Christians left in Iraq. Most are being kept as quasi- prisoners in refugee camps in the Kurdish sector, being manipulated by the church so they can “continue the culture of Christianity in Iraq.” We know this as a fact, as we had our people on the ground trying to help. While I do not despise this mentality, it is but a pipe dream and it is not a reality based on the competing political forces of the different Muslim factions in Iraq and Syria. If you ask the vast majority of Christian refugees stuck in the camps in Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan few, if any, have any desire to return to their home countries. These are the people we listen to and represent. It is very sad that the church is not trying to help these people. The church leaders have an agenda of renewing the Christian life in Iraq; our agenda is based on the reality of the situation, period. We are not against the idea of renewal; we just understand that is not based on the reality on the ground.

Our sister organization covers the terror and political situation in the Middle East. Based on our vast experience and knowledge we do not believe there is a long-term future for Christians to live in any Muslim-majority country. The Islamists in the region have basically taken over or continue to grow their political influence. Your country’s history concerning the Ottoman Empire makes you aware of the challenges of Christians under an extreme Islamist regime.

The goal of Turkey today, which is well documented, is to reinstitute the Caliph and they are succeeding in their goals. Within the next decade or less, Islamist Turkey under Erdogan will be the dominant political force in the region and will unite the whole Muslim world with the Christians in their crosshairs. The Armenian genocide will look like a minor atrocity compared to what is coming.

At this stage, we implore the Hungarian government to recognize the real problem, which is the planned massacre of all Christians by the Islamists, who now are on the verge of taking over the political power over the whole region. The Christian refugees in Turkey, Jordan and Lebanon should be allowed to go to Europe, Canada, Australia and the United States. Each country should agree to take a certain quota or an agreement be set up among the different countries to take some, even if this is done secretly to avoid the politically correct crowd. The overall number of Christian refugees in these camps is only a few hundred thousand people, which is not a lot, if the load is spread amongst many countries. Hungary can lead by taking some families who are stuck in UN refugee camps and then use their example to nudge others on a private basis and later publicly.

Our organization is setting up advocates and lobbyists in the USA for such a policy as we are based in the USA. President Donald Trump has already made positive statements regarding helping the Christians.

I look forward to working with you and advising on this issue going forward.

Yours truly,

Keith Davies
Executive Director of Rescue Christians

Speech to Hungarian Government on Christian Persecution by Executive Director of Rescue Christians


Transcript of Speech to Hungarian government organized conference on Christian Persecution

Good Morning everyone

I would like to thank the Hungarian government for holding this conference and inviting us to speak and explain more about our work.

Let me give you a quick back ground on who we are and why we started Rescue Christians back in the summer of 2009 less than 7 years ago. Our charity was originally set up in 2004 to educate the world on the issues of Islamic terrorism and fundamentalist Islam. My colleague and co-founder is Walid Shoebat who himself was a former Muslim PLO terrorist who renounced his terrorist past, converted to Christianity and as repentance advocated for his former enemy. God has a sense of humor, he puts a Jew and former PLO terrorist to save Christians. This is not unusual for the great God we serve if we look at the story of Moses and the story of Paul from the Bible.

In 2009 we received a message regarding a case of blasphemy in Pakistan that needed assistance. The person in question was on the run and needed a hiding place as well as assistance to leave the country. At that time we had no experience or contacts in Pakistan to help so we called all the organizations that were meant to be touting themselves as people who were helping the persecuted. To our shock and disgust not one these organizations had any interest in helping, so we decided to start an Organization, which exclusively helps, rescue Christians.

In the last 6 years [we] Rescue Christians has helped or saved about 11,000 people. We are proud of this achievement but it is a drop in the bucket of the problem that faces the Judeo Christian world.

Over these last 7 years God has blessed our mission especially in Pakistan where hundreds of Christians have been falsely accused for committing Blasphemy against Muhammad. We were the only Organization who has successfully is rescued persecuted Christians in Pakistan. In the last two years we have liberated and rescued thousands of Christian Slaves from the infamous Kiln factories.

In the thirteen and half years our charity has existed our co founder Mr. Shoebat has reached hundreds of millions of people in the media in the USA and around the world, warning and explaining to the public of the major threat of the Islamic supremacists. Mr. Shoebat’s message of warning concerning the threat of fundamentalist Islam has been accepted by the average informed person of the public, who wishes to inform themselves of the truth, but up to now has been largely ignored by the Western governments because of political correctness and the brain washed masses who hear about the peacefulness of Islam from our main stream media and elected officials. In fact the political correctness is a much bigger problem than the Islamists, as by not accepting the truth of what our enemy is we allow ourselves to be attacked and killed with no real push back to the enemy. Prior the start of World War 2 the dangers of Hitler and Nazism were recognizable but our reluctance to take on the bully only gained steam when the Nazi threat was too great to ignore. Today the threat to the West from Islam is still at the 1930s stage. Most recognize the problem but because of political correctness are unwilling to confront what is really Nazism but this time has a religious twist, which creates the pc nonsense we have to endure.

Ironically the 500,000 Hungarian Jews who perished in the Holocaust have a major link both to the Nazis and the Islamists. For those, that have not heard about this let me explain: Hitler suggested that the Hungarian Jews leave Hungary and go to Israel (The Palestine Mandate at that time) but Haj Amin Husseini who was the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, a founding member of the modern Muslim Brotherhood and a major confidant and ally of Hitler, sent a letter to the Nazi government of Germany telling them not to allow the Jews to go to The Palestine Mandate. It should also be noted that Haj Amin Husseini also founded and supplied soldiers to two Bosnian divisions of the Nazi SS. We know what happened after that; 500,000 Jews were gassed in Auschwitz as a direct result of the intervention of Haj Amin Husseini, an infamous Islamist and the inspiration to the pro Palestine movement of today.

As I just said we are today at the 1930s period with the Nazis. The Jews were the first major victims of the Nazis with discrimination and persecution culminating with the Holocaust. When Israel was founded in 1948 all Jews were expelled from most Muslim countries, I say this because if they were still living in these countries based on what is happening to the Christians today, the Jews would probably be suffering even greater atrocities than the Christians. The proof is clear as when Daniel Pearl a Jewish journalist working for the Wall Street Journal was captured in Pakistan by Al Qadea, he was decapitated in front a camera for the world to see. The common cry from the Islamists which is well documented in the Middle East is, The Saturday people first, the Sunday people next.” The leader of Hezbollah Hassan Nassrallah stated, “If Jews all gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide.” So the Islamists equally mark the Jews and the Christians for destruction.
Another great irony of this great meeting in Budapest is that this is the city where Raoul Wallenberg worked feverishly to save hundreds of thousands of Jews in the last year of World War Two. Much of the work we do to save Christians is based on his example, ingenuity and courage. I had the privilege yesterday of visiting the memorial to him at the great synagogue to this hero who tragically did not survive the war.

Let me be crystal clear that the goal of Islam is to eradicate Jews and Christians either by forced conversion or murder. This has not changed in the 1400-year history of Islam. Eastern Europe is well aware of this history and this is why I am probably standing in Budapest today because you and a few other Eastern European countries know the history and have directly felt the scourge of the Islamic imperial desires. The European defense from this threat goes back to the Middle Ages.

The Christians amount to 100 million people as minorities in Muslim majority countries, they are marked for destruction, just as the Jews were marked for destruction in Nazi occupied Europe. There were 9 million Jews in Europe in 1939 after the war there were only three million left alive. Based on this statistic it is very likely that between 50 and 70 million Christians will die if we do not awaken from our political correctness. We can pontificate, we can argue, but we cannot ignore the predicament of the short and long term goal of the Islamist lead by Erdogan the leader of Turkey, to annihilate the Judea Christian culture of the West. The newest holocaust has already begun my friends, the question is will the European governments recognize the problem in time, in order to rescue and defend their brothers. If they allow the holocaust to continue and only when the Islamists become a big enough threat to Europe and the United States i.e when Europe and the USA suffer major attacks that will kill many thousands of people they will only react then in a way that the allies reacted after Hitler invaded Poland. By the time that major attack happens already millions of Christians will have been murdered and the rest of the tens of millions left will be left to the slaughterhouses of Islam. History shows that during Islamic conquests 250 million people were butchered, in India alone about 100 million Hindus were butchered over a hundred year period in the fifteenth and sixteenth century who here has heard of the Baburnama massacres. The skulls of millions of Hindus used as walls for fortresses. Even the Aremenian genocide, which also included the butchery of over 500,000 Greek orthodox and 700,000 Chaldean Christians with an approximate total of 3 million people murdered by the Ottoman Turks before and during World War One. So please no one come up to me after and say this will never happen. It has happened, and it continues to happen anywhere and everywhere Islam has political power and they rule over a non-Muslim population.

Our organization is the only one that specializes in rescuing people. The time for documentation is not over but the time for acting to save our brethren has arrived. I implore the Hungarian government to work with us to help save as many of the hundred million people in need of assistance. We recognize that Hungary is a small country with limited resources but they can do much not only with their limited resources but they can influence other countries in Europe and around the world to take action to save hundred of thousands. We are a tiny organization yet we have helped or saved nearly 12,000 people. It requires a will and purpose, with many obstacles that need to be overcome with a will and determination that was fought to defeat Nazism in World War 2. Raoul Wallenberg was one man with a few courageous assistants and he saved 100,000 people. This time we need more than a few people in order to save millions of people.

Let us start to plan today the Greatest Rescue Mission in History. Thank you for your time and blessings to you all.
