Pakistani church bombing (Dec. 2017)There are fears that Christians in some Muslim countries could pay a price for the U.S. decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

According to William Stark with International Christian Concern, Christians in Muslim-majority countries have been preparing for possible violent responses due to the announcement made  

"In the Muslim world," he says, "America is seen as a Christian nation and its decisions are seen somehow as a collective of the Christian consciousness in a way."

And that is why believers are concerned that they could be a target.

Citing one example of such reactions, Stark recalls that a French newspaper that published cartoons of Mohammed caused Muslims to riot in Nigeria, where they burned churches to the ground.

"It's difficult being a Christian in these communities, says Stark, using Pakistan as one example, "because you're not seen as a member of that community."
