(Jerusalem Post) Matthew Wagner - Every three minutes a Christian is being tortured in the Muslim world, and in 2009 more than 165,000 Christians will have been killed because of their faith, most of them in Muslim countries, according to a human rights group visiting Israel. "Hamas digs up the bodies of Christians from Christian burial sites in the Gaza Strip claiming that they pollute the earth," said Rev. Majed El Shafie, 32, an Egyptian-born Christian and President of One Free World International (OFWI), who heads a delegation of human rights activists, members of parliament from Canada and religious personalities visiting Israel for a conference on human rights and persecuted minorities at the Van Leer Institute in Jerusalem. El Shafie said that some 200-300 million Christians are being persecuted in the world, 80% of whom lived in Muslim countries.
