Paul Marshall writes on NRO: In some parts of the world, Christmas is prime time for attacks on Christians.On Christmas Eve, it was revealed that the Iranian government has once again imprisoned Pastor Yousef Nadarkhani, who had been sentenced to death on charges of apostasy and who, after international pressure, was released last September.

The worst attacks so far this Christmas appear to have taken place in Nigeria.

Unless the State Department  sheds its secular myopia, in which explicit religious motives, here and elsewhere, are continually discounted in favor of tenuous local material ones, the U.S. is less likely to aid Nigerians, whether Christian or otherwise.
