A Christian who was killed because he believed in Jesus Christ is
a martyr. The first disciples of Jesus Christ were persecuted.
One of them who persecuted the Christians was Saul of Tarsus.
Later Saul met the resurrected Jesus Christ in a great light from
heaven. He then lost his sight for some time before it was
restored by Ananias of Damascus. He then believed that Jesus
Christ is the Jewish Messiah and son of God. Saul from then on
converted and took the name Paul. When the wars against the
Christian Byzantine Empire began also persecution of Christians
began. In the year 636 the Christian Byzantine Empire lost
control over areas in modern day Lebanon and Syria to the Muslim
Rashidun caliphate. Just 38 years later, starting in the year
674, the Muslim Ummayad Caliphate had their forces in Anatolia
and were besieging Constantinople, the capital of the Byzantine
Empire. During the period of 678 to 1065 the Christian nations
had many wars and conflicts and there were such with Christians
against Christians. The Muslim Seljuk Turks attacked the
Byzantine Empire in 1065 and advanced westward all the way past
Nicaea. In 1095 the Christian Roman Catholic pope Urban II
decided for a pilgrimage eastwards to retake Jerusalem and the
east from the Muslims. This is called the First Crusade and the
city of Antioch was taken. In the year 1099 Jerusalem was taken
by the crusaders and they established control over the area
there. The Second Crusade retook all of Cilicia with a victory
over the Muslim Pechengs. The Second Crusade also ended at
Antioch in the year 1142. The Christians moved east and were
defeated by the Muslim Turks at the battle of Myriokephalon in
1176. The western coast of Anatolia was still in control of
the Christians. There the Muslim Turks were defeated in the
Battle of Hyelion and Leimocheir in the year 1177. The
crusaders were in Jerusalem later and held that important city
for a time. Pilgrims from Europe were safer to visit Jerusalem
when there were Christian forces there. Earlier some pilgrims
from Northern Europe were killed when there were no Christian
soldiers protecting them. In 1291 the end of
the crusades took place with the fall of Acre because of the
evil Muslims.

The 29 may 1453 was the date of the fall of Christian
Constantinople and the Muslim hordes raped Christian women,
nuns and children there. The Muslims are evil and perverse and
some of their perverse war strategies are from their book
called the Quran which is not noble at all. The Muslims through
the Ottoman Empire attacked Europe during the following
centuries. In the Balkans a Muslim leader raped all Christian
women who wanted to marry and first after the rape they could
marry with their chosen Christian man. In the 17th century they
were as far north as Austria and Crimea in the east. They
controlled the taken territories and the Christians living
under the Ottoman rule were for example persecuted and raped in
some cases. In 1655 to 1660 the Swedish Lutheran nation
attacked Poland and there were Christian Catholics killed in
great numbers together with looting. The Ottoman Turks were
attacking the city Vienna (now in the country Austria) in 1683
but they were stopped by European forces led by the polish king
Jan Sobieski III outside the city of Vienna. The conflict
between European countries and the Ottoman Empire ended with a
defeat for the Ottoman empire. In France the french people did
a revolution which had political plans against Christianity. It
could have been Christian martyrs there when many people were
killed. During the 19th century the Muslim Ottoman empire
started to lose territory in Europe. During 1894 to 1915 the
Muslim Turks in Anatolia killed over 1.5 million Christians
living there. The events with mass killings etc. that began on
the 24th of april 1915 are called the Armenian Genocide. The
revolution in Christian Russia in 1917, controlled by the
communists, started much persecution of Christianity in Russia
and Europe during the 20th century. The communists were atheist
and anti religious and also perverse. In Germany the Nazi
party gained power in the 1930s and the Nazi-dictature killed a
Catholic priest in Poland during World War II. The communists
killed a polish priest in Poland in the 20th century his name
was Jerzy Popieluszko. Since the second half of the 20th century
stupid Christians, or they maybe were western atheists, have
welcomed Muslims to Western Europe and they have done

perverse war acts already here during a period of circa 48
years to 2023. In 1991 the Soviet Union ceased to exist and
Christianity started to be more allowed again in Russia and the
other countries that had been Soviet satellite states. Now
during the 21st century, Muslim extremists have persecuted
Christians. In many countries Christians but probably also
westerners, have been killed. There have been many victims in
attacks perpetrated in USA, Europe, Russia, the Middle East and
in Africa. In Stockholm people are trying to damage
Catholic-Christianity also in the beginning of 2020. I
remembered the Catholic faith and especially the death of Jesus
Christ and the destruction of a temple when it was much thunders
in Sweden once. It was the year 2020. In 2023 still all Catholics
can’t live in peace.
