Coptic Christians killed (not graphic)A human-rights organization that tracks Christian persecution worldwide says the Paris terrorist attack shows the threat that Islamic State poses around the world.

Todd Daniels of International Christian Concern says the deadly attacks demonstrated that ISIS can operate beyond the Middle East region.

"Unfortunately an event like this," he says, "is often what it takes for the broader world to realize the reality that Christians and other minorities in the Middle East Face on a daily basis."

On the ICC website, the "Islam" section includes stories from Iraq and Syria, and a map showing the latest incidents of persecution. 

Islamic State is waging Jihad through force and power, says Daniels, who oversees Middle East efforts for ICC, and he warns the Jihadi group has components of Islamic end times beliefs.  

"And they feel that they are right now part of bringing that end," he tells OneNewsNow.

The world desperately needs leadership to confront these evil and to protect those facing persecution, says Daniels.
