Due to persecution, Christians were martyrs under 11th century Egypt-Syria 12th century Almohad 13th century Persia 14th century Tamerlane 15th century Turks 16th 17th century Japan 18th 19th century France 20th 21th century Armenia Russia Palestine Poland Germany China Cuba Sudan India Iraq etc.
Let it be noted emphatically that Christians follow the example of the Theban Legion and do not reply to this by warfare. The current Anglo-American invasion of the Middle East (including especially all of its militarist and political support for the criminal genocidal racist apartheid murderous robber state of foxes known as "Israel") is not justified by anything and in particular not by the blood of the martyrs.
Persian heresy in Islam and its power play to implement the Antichrist
Persian cabalistic-Gnostic heresy within Islamic civilization goes back to the time of the Hurufi movement in Persia in the eighth century A.D. from within the Imami. It is the absolute basis of the Ismaeli heresy which has totally corrupted Egypt and Saudia Arabia down to the present. From Persia it spread to Turkey and became the Bektasiyya, who were totally immersed in Jewish Kabbalah. Centuries later Sabbatai Zvi was received there in Turkey by the Persian Shi'ite Muslim Bektasiyya, which predisposed the Sultan of Turkey to receiving and becoming the patron of Sabbatai Zvi. This led to Sabbateanism. The original, and still the core heresy and movement, is Persian-Iranian Shi'ism. It is the basis for ALL Zionism for the last 12 centuries. It is the Sephardic Zionist core and is who entrapped the Khazar Ashkenazim into Talmudic Judaism. When you speak of Iran, you are talking about the absolute basis and rulers of the synagogue who control all of Zionist Israel. There are more Rabbis in Iran than in most Jewish enclaves in the world.
[Sufism was corrupted every which way by this and the final outgrowth of that was Al Qaeda]
This Persian Jew subversion and murderous intrigue dates from the time of the Persian Empire at the time of the Roman Empire. During the first centuries of the spread of the Gospel from Jerusalem and from there throughout the world - it was the Jews in both the Roman Empire and in the Persian Empire which instigated the ruling classes to unjustly and unlawfully persecute the Christians in each Empire - the Jews also caused the theological divisions between East and West - a pattern which which the Jews continued in their instigation of division between the Catholic and Orthodox Churches during especially the time of Photius a Khazar Jew who was Orthodox Patriarch of Constantinople in the 9th century A.D. Today that particular pattern of Photius is seen in the Jews' Kahal-Haburah control over Russia extending from Czarist times through Communist times to presently in their use of Drozdov (meaning "blackbird," KGB-Mossad name of Alexius II, their agent who posed as the Patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church). The whole "Third Rome" apostasy of the Russian Church was Jew instigated and on purpose.
Note on the the Jews' Russian Black Mariah/Cheka/NKVD/GPU/KGB/FSB-FSS (Military core GRU directorate) offspring, the Mossad. The Mossad is the child of the Russian Secret Intelligence, it is not the CIA's offspring and not MI5/6's offspring. Both OSS/CIA and MI5/6 are the offspring of Russian Secret Intelligence as well. Russian Secret Intelligence dates back to the Czarist secret service. The Jews' instigators and saboteurs in Russia are the parent of the Russian Secret Intelligence - they were the AIPAC of Czarist Russia. A copy of all of this in Germany was the Prussian secret service which was the base, later, for the Nazi GESTAPO.
The Keraites, Persian Jews in 800 A.D. who surreptitiously invaded the Holy Land then, are not nor have they ever been Moses' Torah only Jews - they have been totally hidden Kabbalistic Satanists the whole time.
This was all planned by the Kahal-Haburah to destroy all of sovereign rule of all nations including the Sultanate of Rum (ended 1300 A.D.) and be the absolute corruption of all of the nations and including Turkish Society. It led to the complete destruction of the Ottoman Empire in 1915 and the rise of an Antichrist, Kemal Mustafa Attaturk, actually a Jew and Freemason and member of the Doenmeh - literally Satanists all. All of it was organized by the Jews, the Haburah - the Kahal. All of this was and is the prime (modern in the sense of the last seven centuries) movement in the North of the Region variously known as the Levant and the Fertile Crescent. The Region is the Holy Land and the surrounding region. To the North is Anatolia. Anatolia (called Asia Minor in the West) is directly and unequivocally the land of Gog (King Gyges originally) and Magog (Lydia at the time of Gyges who was King of Lydia then) – which is exactly the original Biblical Scriptural Reference to the Antichrist, the false ha maschiach of the Jews, the Dajjal, and its nation of antichrists. What the Jews' Kahal-Haburah did was to, via their usurious banking in the West (linked to the Phanar district in Constantinople) and its influence in Venice and the Vatican, instigate an alliance made in hell between the Christian West and the Sephardic Jews' vassal state of Khazaria; that, both the usurious Jew banking and the Khazarian alliance, poisoned forevermore all ecclesiastical hierarchy in the West.
The recent comment by Putin to not worry about Iran, Israel will take care of Iran, means exactly that, Israel will continue to nurture Iran as its parent in the region.
The Russian Kahal is the direct outgrowth of the Turkish Jews, which from the North, meaning Russia in 1915, came back to collect their investment in Turkey.
