Open Doors: Remember North Korea's persecuted Christians
Persecution watchdog Open Doors has called for a renewed focus on the plight of Christians in North Korea following the meeting between US president Donald Trump and North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un.
The country is number one on Open Doors' World Watch List of places where it is most difficult to be a Christian. Christians are severely persecuted and tens of thousands are held in harsh conditions in labour camps.
‚Äú we don‚Äôt need no stinking human rights ‚Äú, By having a baseline of human rights, the Soviet Union fell quickly, that and working alongside Lutherans and Catholics made Eastern Europe fall quickly. A western/ Eastern European Christian history is an asset that no matter who‚Äôs in charge is a strong basis for change. Asia, Southeast Asia is not historically Christian and thus is very difficult to go the human rights route.
thank you Open Doors! Great job everyone! Wealth and IMF banking and coastal luxury apartments funded by rothchild do not set a man free, at the same time, freedom of movement, and being set free from concentration camps would be a relief for those who has watched the suffering of the Christians in the North for so many years. By meeting with Trump, Kim Jung Un was acknowledging that the narrative they have told their people has been based on a lie, it was risky on all sides and our media obviously wanted war and failure, in the least they have succeeded in demoralizing weak minded Christians that get their news on tv. they have let the evil one slip into and demoralize them. nonetheless, having the hermit leader leave the country for a diplomatic meeting was legendary... even for that moment...legendary. let us continue to pray.
I am not too sure that this much vaunted diplomacy in Singapore between President Trump and Kim Jong Un is going to do much at all for the some 500,000 prisoners in the concentration and prison camps of North Korea, of which at least, I believe, some 70,000 are Christians, not to say, also those ‚Äúat liberty‚ÄĚ in the towns and villages, who are in a kind of prison like situation, everyone fearful of each other and struggling for daily survival.
Remember that even a small thing like damaging or dropping a portrait of the first but now dead ruler of North Korea, Kim Il Sung, his son Kim Jong Il, and now Kim Jong Un , the present ruler is punished severely with at least several years in prison or labour camp.
Kim Jong Un had his own uncle blown up, assassinated his half brother in Kuala Lumpur Airport, using agents with nerve gas handkerchiefs to brush against him, and an elderly general who had the misfortune to fall asleep during one of his long speeches was summarily executed.
Kim Jong Un is a seasoned Marxist, and knows only too well how to twist President Trump around his little finger.
