    The devil use whoever can to break our integrity to Jehovah. 

    New World Translation

    Revelation 12:12 On  this account be glad, you heavens and you who reside in them! Woe for the earth and for the sea, because the Devil has come down to you, having great anger, knowing that he has a short period of time.”

    The Devil and his agents were intent on breaking the integrity of Kingdom subjects no matter where they lived. Throughout Africa, Europe, and the United States, they were brought before courts and parole boards. Because of their unwavering determination to remain neutral, they were imprisoned, beaten, and maimed. In Germany, God’s people faced enormous pressure because they refused to heil Hitler or join the war effort. An estimated 6,000 were detained in prison camps during the Nazi era, and more than 1,600 German and non-German Witnesses died at the hands of their tormentors. Even so, the Devil was unable to inflict any permanent harm on God’s people.​—Mark 8:34, 35.

    Pacifism. They won't join political parties or wars, which dictator hate (Hitler, Stalin, Putin).

    What is the motivation of Jehovah's Witnesses to think they're the ONLY people in the world who are being persecuted? HOW many of them had their heads lopped off by Islamic terrorists???

      David, if you took the time to read some of the J/W literature, instead of trying to second guess it, you'd see that they regularly report on the persecution of all manner of Christian denominations.

    Russia is Orthodox christian.  That is almost the same as a catholic.

    That should explain it fully, if you understand that church, and it's bid for power.  They want no competition.

    They are a misguided cult that brings to themselves many woes.
