US Commission: 10 out of 15 Intolerant Countries are Muslim

New members on the list of shame include Egypt, Pakistan and Iraq

The new leader of Egypt has made his country a new member on the list this year. 

The US Committee on International Religious Freedom has concluded in its annual report that 10 out of 15 of the most intolerant countries are Muslim. It mentions Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan and five other countries that are ruled by communist or radical leftist regimes: China, Birma, North Korea, Vietnam and Eritrea.

The report confirms the findings of the Christian Open Doors organization, that found that 42 out of 50 countries are Islamic.

Turkey, which is still blocking the opening of the Halki seminary, the most important religious education institution in the Christian Orthodox Church, for some reason didn't make the blacklist.
