2 million ethnic Muslims adopted baptism in Russia while only 2,5
thousand Russians converted to Islam - expert

Moscow, November 1, Interfax - The number of ethnic Muslims in Russia
who adopted Christianity is 2 million, while the number of the Orthodox
who have been converted to Islam is only 2,5 thousand, stated Roman
Silantyev, executive secretary of the Inter-religious Council in
Russia.

'Christianization happens not so much as a result of some purposeful
missionary activity (in which only Protestants are engaged) as under
the influence of Russian culture which has express Christian roots',
Silantyev said in a interview published this week by the Itogi weekly.

According Silantyev, the converts are predominantly Muslims by birth,
while 'those who really confess Islamic values and attend mosque on a
regular basis rarely change their faith'.

'The assimilation of ethnic and religious minorities is an inevitable
process in any society. In Russia it is accelerated due to extremist
activities', the Islamic researcher believes.

For instance, he says, as a result of what happened in Beslan, the
proportion of Muslims in North Ossetia has decreased at least by 30%,
while in Beslan itself, where Muslims had comprised from 30 to 40% of
the population, their number has decreased at least by half.

'As even Muslim sources confirm, after each terrorist action,
thousands and may be even dozens of thousands of ethnic Muslims adopt
baptism', Silantyev stated.

At the same time, the expert accounts for the small number of ethnic
Orthodox people who have adopted Islam for the last 15 years, among
other things, by the fact that 'for some reason Russians seem to be
more willing to join sects than Islam'.

Perhaps it is more dangerous to be a muslim in Russia. I did read that after Beslan, huge numbers changed their identity cards to Christian.

Beslan was some kind of turning point, like 9/11. Maybe China and Russia are more merciless than Europe or the US.

I also found this article about Islamic decline in areas now throwing off oppressive regimes...

gkissebert

Colombia
a couple of members have posted about all the christian conversions to islam.

In light of that, I found this interesting



Islam's Decline

A very interesting article from Pajamas Media about Islam's decline. Quoting an article by an Islamic scholar:

Islam used to represent … Africa’s main religion and there were 30 African languages that used to be written in Arabic script. The number of Muslims in Africa has diminished to 316 million, half of whom are Arabs in North Africa. So in the section of Africa that we are talking about, the non-Arab section, the number of Muslims does not exceed 150 million people. When we realize that the entire population of Africa is one billion people, we see that the number of Muslims has diminished greatly from what it was in the beginning of the last century.

On the other hand, the number of Catholics has increased from one million in 1902 to 329 million 882 thousand (329,882,000). Let us round off that number to 330 million in the year 2000.

As to how that happened, well there are now 1.5 million churches whose congregations account for 46 million people. In every hour, 667 Muslims convert to Christianity. Everyday, 16,000 Muslims convert to Christianity. Every year, 6 million Muslims convert to Christianity. These numbers are very large indeed.

Pajamas Media goes on to point out that some of the conversion of Muslims to Christianity represents a repudiation of tyrannical state religion in places like Iran and the former Soviet Union:

Although al-Qataani points to Africa, there is another phenomenon based on repulsion from Islamist dictatorship, corruption, and terrorist violence. In Iran as many as 1 million people have surreptitiously converted to Evangelical Christianity in the last five years. Pastor Hormoz Shariat claims to have converted 50,000 of them through his U.S.-based Farsi-language satellite ministry. He contrasts the upswing to the efforts of evangelical missionaries in Iran between 1830 and 1979, whose 149 years of work built a Christian community of only 3,000. One Iranian religious scholar believes youth are abandoning Islam because it is identified with the corrupt Iranian government. Now the Iranian Majlis (parliament) is debating the death penalty for conversion.

...

In southern Russia the same pattern is emerging. According to Roman Silantyev, executive secretary of the Inter-religious Council in Russia, freed from atheist control, two million Muslims converted to Christianity. Repulsed by bloody terrorist attacks, those living in areas such as Beslan have converted to Christianity in the greatest numbers of all. As many as 100,000 have converted to Christianity in post-Soviet Kyrgyzstan.

After decades of Islamist war, evangelicals report thousands of sub-rosa converts in rural areas of Kashmir. Says one churchgoer:“I am interested in this religion. I hate violence. I hate fundamentalists in Islam. I come here to seek peace.” An Indian newspaper headline reads:“Urban Muslim Youth Out to Junk Faith.”

I'm positive loads (millions) leave islam, especially when our life style is so attractive to them. I know many that speak out and receive death threats but that doesn't stop them.

As Geert Wilders says, Islam is a retarded religion and he is now famous around the world. He is one of the bravest man I know with billions of followers.

The average person does not like terror, but we must defend ourselves with the same back to them. We have always won the war with islamics, even we were few, but now we are many and muslims like our life, so they leave islam. FACT!

The crusades were in response to islamic occupation, oppression, and violence.

You weren't reading history, you were reading islamic propaganda (lies). It's too bad lefties can't tell the difference.

Christanity&Bible teaches to Love&to Respect Your Neighbour.It does not teaches to kill any person. In Koran it is written that does who disobeys Allah thy non-muslims shalt be killed,thy hand shalt be chopped,thy head shalt be cutoff by the order of Allah.

Quite true:
Qur'an quotation:
•Kill the unbelievers(Jews,Christians,Hi ndus,Sikhs,and Buddhists) wherever you find them(2:191)
•Make war on the infidels living in your neighboorhood (9:123)
•When opportunity arises, kill the infidels wherever you catch them (9:5)
•Kill the Jews and the Christians if they do not convert to Islam or refuse to pay Jizya tax (9:29)
•Any religion other than Islam is not acceptable (3:85)
•The Jews and the Christians are perverts; fight them (9:30)
•Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticise Islam.(5:33)
•The infidels are unclean; do not let them into a mosque (9:28)
•Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water; melt their skin and bellies
(22:19)

•Do not hanker for peace with the infidels; behead them when you catch them (47:4)
•The unbelievers are stupid; urge the Muslims to fight them (8:65)
•Muslims must not take the infidels as friends (3:28)
•Terrorise and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an (8:12)
•Muslims must muster all weapons to terrorise the infidels (8:60)

But the Bible talks of loving even your enemies:
Bible Verse: 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.

You are right Christianity is the true Religion in the earth.If you enter in church you find pindrop silence in the church&it is not any showoff.You must read&understand the Holy Bible.Bible means Basic information before leaving earth.The first&last book in the entire universe is Bible.Christianity teaches to love&respect our neighbours,relatives&famil y members.May the God Almighty bless all the people around the world&the love of Jesus Christ&fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you&all. Jesus Christ is the saviour of all.Bible is the word of God not the Quran or any book.Islam teaches to kill all the non-muslims in the earth.Quran had most of the scientific errors.It teaches to kill every person in the name of Allah.I know you will d'ont believe in me.But,I'm not lying or making any brainwash.If you think that i m lying then you should gi to google m&type Horrible words of Quran&you 'ill get the answer.Islam is not the religion of peace you must observe it.It is made with fascism,muhammed is a false prophet.He killed many people in the name of islam.The people who were killed were all pagans who lived in Mecca.They wera all non-muslims.

. You should lern Koran I slim book it also has deep sense of huminity. You don't know the real teaching of Islam.Islam says don't kill a single insect or living creature it is a sin. Christians started crusade in 10th century mainly pope. It took the life of millions of innocent people.Christians fought world wars.and nazi or fascists were Christians who killed millions of people. Saudi Arabians are wahabi Muslims 3% of Islamic population. They don't have the real soul of Islam.

Mongols killed 30 million Muslims in 13th century. Christians crusader killed millions of innocent Muslims in 11th and 12th century. Even European emperialists killed millions of innocent people in India,china ,south America and Africa. All Europeans were Christians. American Christians killed 2 million people in iraque, 0.5 million in Afghanistan and 4 million in Vietnam ,Libya, Pakistan, Sudan Yemen etc. What type of Christian Americans are? Christians fought world wars, cold war. Hitler ,musolini ,nazi, fascists ,communists were christans. Gods knows who is right side. Every religion has the chapter of huminity and love. Islam does not allows violence. Sufi thoughts of Islam fully depends upon love and huminity. Learn and gain knowledge of history and religions then u will find real fact. Don't be a little learner or narrow mind just like western men who gain knowledge by watching television and news channels.
