The United States Department of State issued its 2013 International Religious Freedom Report and the assessment was that it was a very bad year. 2013 saw the largest displacement of religious communities across the globe. About 75% of all nations have gotten worse. In Syria, for example, the number of Christians has dropped from over 160,00 to barely 1,000 after years of conflict. In Mosul, Iraq, where ISIS forces have recently captured the city, some 35,000 Christian families have fled, leaving around 1,500, just in the past few weeks. Across the Middle East, Asia and Africa, Christians are being persecuted, hunted and murdered. Things are not much better for Jews, even in Europe. About 48% of Jews in Europe say that antisemitism has become so bad that they desire to migrate. Secretary John Kerry acknowledges that the report tells of bad news for those of faith, but offers no real solutions.
