The two main issues to dominate religious liberty through 2007 and develop through 2008 are apostasy and the fear thereof, and the New Cold War. The phenomenon of apostasy, eg. Muslims leaving Islam, has increased and become more visible with apostates increasingly publicly claiming their religious liberty themselves. The fearful reaction of the dictators to it, 'apostaphobia', has become more violent. The new geo-political realities in the form of a New Cold War are set to have a profound and negative impact on global religious liberty.
