On July 30, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton submitted the 2011 International Religious Freedom Report to the Congress. The report said that in the aspect of government respecting and protecting religious freedom, China's situation has obviously worsened in 2011 and China was listed into the “countries of particular concern”. Many other countries, including Afghanistan, Cuba, Eritrea, Iran, North Korea, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria, Vietnam, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan are also on this special list made by the United States.

like your headline... getting closer to the truth; america think they are god chosen ppl. thats why the country is into so much problem now... theres confusion because its ' christianity versus science.. ' if you believe in god and creation, youre out of place with the scientists.a different form of rupture will happen in america, not in isreal, resulting in the breaking up and disintegration of america.
