Merry Christmas in the muslim world

Joel Rosenberg has an amazing Christmas article on the record number of ex-muslims celebrating Christmas this year. Here is the amazing first sentence from his latest blog entry:
More Muslims converted to faith in Jesus Christ over the past decade than at any other time in human history. A spiritual revolution is underway throughout North Africa, the Middle East, and Central Asia. As a result, a record number of ex-Muslims are celebrating Christmas this year, despite intense persecution, arrests, assassinations, and widespread church bombings.
Let's continue to pray for these countries over the holidays:

Iraq: more than 5,000 new Muslim converts to Christianity
Egypt: some reports say 1 million Egyptians have trusted Christ over the past decade or so.
Afghanistan: only 17 Muslim converts to Christianity before 9/11/01, but now more than 10,000. Dozens of baptisms every week.
