In recent years many stories of the heroic defense of Christians by Muslims, often against attacks by ISIS, Boko Haram and other Takfiri terrorists, have emerged from Syria, Iraq, Egypt, the Philippines, Canada, France and elsewhere. These actions are entirely in the spirit, though not always in the awareness, of the Covenants of the Prophet Muhammad, as elucidated in The Covenants of the Prophet Muhammad with the Christians of the World by Dr. John Andrew Morrow (see http://www.covenantsoftheprophet.com). Here are links to 43 of them:
