The nightmare of radical Islamic violence and murder against Christians is spreading across Africa. Now the deadly Islamic terrorist group Al-Shabaab is targeting Christians in Kenya. Al-Shabaab forces reportedly attacked a bus and demanded the passengers recite an Islamic statement of faith. Two Christians who refused were immediately murdered. As they have done in numerous previous attacks, the al-Shabaab radicals forced the passengers to present their identification cards, and separated them... read more

Our team has delivered several critical presentations at the U.N. Human Rights Council on behalf of Christians facing genocide – but never like this. We’ve just delivered an urgent wake-up call to the world to save dying Christians, and this time no one can say they didn’t hear it or understand. “ISIS’s widespread systematic pattern of murder, barbarism, domination, and sexual abuses has forced thousands of Christians to flee the region, and is leading to the wholesale destruction of Christians... read more

Can the government force you to speak a message that contradicts what you believe as a moral and religious matter? Thanks to more than half-a-century of Supreme Court decisions, the answer to that question is no . The Court has stated time and time again that “freedom of speech prohibits the government from telling people what they must say.” Can the government force a pro-life pregnancy counseling center to advertise a state-run program that offers free or low-cost abortions? Thanks to the... read more

President Trump’s decision to defund the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) is, of course, the right move from a legal perspective, but lest there be any confusion, it also is the just and empathetic response towards an organization that long has done a disservice to the very population it was meant to be helping. Unfortunately, op-eds such as the one Mr. Benjamin Schiff wrote criticizing the decision while ignoring facts, misstating law, and using circular logic, continue that same... read more
The ACLJ is directly engaged in fighting anti-Semitism all over the world and inside the United Nations. Now we’re fighting for Jewish students at universities right here at home. While we recently took legal action to fight for the Free Speech rights of a Christian to preach the Gospel on a public sidewalk, American institutions of ”higher learning” are freely opening up their campuses to anti-Israel hate speech. Rather than protect the beliefs and safety of all its students, a major... read more
704 days. At the time of this writing, that’s how long it’s been since American Pastor Andrew Brunson was initially arrested and has since been detained in Turkey. That’s 704 days of being shuffled in and out of horrendous prison environments. 704 days of emotional and physical suffering. 704 days of wild, unfounded accusations leading to the charge of “Christianization” and now a sham trial, which could result in what amounts to a life sentence for Pastor Andrew. This grave injustice has been... read more
