The Anglican Bishop of Karachi endorses the work of Rescue Christians in Pakistan

 
‎02 ‎November ‎2013, ‏‎08:51:21 PM | adminGo to full article
Here is a word of endorsement from the Bishop of Karachi, Ijaz Inayat Masih, for our organization, Rescue Christians.

He recognizes our most pertinent actions of rescuing the persecuted saints whose lives would be continually pursued and persecuted if it was not for our organization. Here are his own words:

Your attention please.

I have known “Rescue Christians” since it started its work in Pakistan four years ago and had the honor to see their word and be associated with them in whatever possible ways I could.

I want to place on record my gratitude to the provision of this facility by the Lord, and the team along the matchless work they have been able to put up in difficult, hostile and religiously charged situation of Pakistan. The comfort and hope to the depressed and victimized Christian communities of Pakistan would not be possible at this scale with out the involvement of this team.

They have and continue to provide safe homes, legal aid, food, medicine as well as lines of escape wherever necessary for the most serious cases of persecution.

I admire the brave stand of the persons of this organization in hostile situations. They are righteous souls who have stood up to the expectations of not only the inflicted Christians of Pakistan, but have also earned reputation and a place among the Christians of Pakistan. I do extract, that this team trough their devoted work has tried to match the commandments of the Lord and the commitments of Raoul Wallenburg. I hope in a short span of time the world will recognize the whole of this Global team as an “Instrument of the Lord for the oppressed.”

My God bless you and protect you in your vital work.

Love and blessings.

Bishop Dr. Ijaz Inayat Masih.

While we cannot supply full transparency on how your money is used because of security concerns, showing you copies of the initial hospital bills to help the victims of bombing is one thing we can do to show some transparency. The actual rescue work our people do is not only sensitive but very dangerous.  Recently three of our team members in Pakistan were detained by police only because they spoke with different dialect and looked different while working in the Peshawar area. This shows us how our work is closely monitored by the Pakistani government, there are other examples which I cannot publish.  Thankfully our leaders on the ground were able secure their release within a few hours. Not only do we have to deal with the Islamic extremists both inside and outside the Pakistani government but also with corrupt Church leaders as well as people who look to make money from the tragedy of others persecution.  Our teams on the ground are doing unbelievable work( I deal with them daily) despite facing these obstacles.  Please continue to both pray and if you can support this holy work please click here 

 

Pakistan: Muslims Break Into Christian Home, Torture Family and Tell Them To Convert To Islam At Gunpoint

 
‎16 ‎October ‎2013, ‏‎03:49:59 AM | adminGo to full article
From The MTT:

Pakistan is blighted by sectarian attacks by Sunni Islamists against the Shia and other minority communities like Christians and Hindus also suffer from militant attacks. At the same time, institutional discrimination is also a major problem for non-Muslims. Therefore, the recent report circulating from Islamabad about a Christian family being held at gunpoint and under the threat of forced conversion by militants is extremely worrying.

The Christian Post reports that “Local police official Abdul Ghafoor reported that the men, all in their 30′s, had broken into the home of a large Christian family and tortured them, forcing them to convert to Islam at gunpoint. The family members tortured by the men were allegedly related to the recently deceased Boota Masih, a 58-year-old gold scavenger who was attacked and stabbed in the Karachi’s Liaquatabad Gold Market earlier in September. Masih had been accused of blasphemy against the prophet Mohammed, and his throat was allegedly slit by a Muslim extremist as policemen and security guards looked on.”

It is reported that the police in Islamabad have arrested three Muslims in connection with the attack. However, often the institutions in Pakistan don’t do enough to stem the tide of religious persecution in this country.

Not surprisingly, the Christian family targeted is now residing in fear and obviously this will spread throughout the local Christian community. After all, Islamists want to rule by fear therefore with such weak institutions to deal with the ongoing crisis, the situation is critical. Also, many militants believe they can attack minorities openly because of the lack of transparency within the legal system.

Estimated 50,000 Christians Have Fled To The Mountains Of Syria, Or To Lebanon

 
‎16 ‎October ‎2013, ‏‎03:38:31 AM | adminGo to full article
From George Marlin of Catholic Online:
 

For many months now there have been plenty of headlines devoted to the unrest in the Middle East, notably in Egypt and Syria. What has been missing, however, is any significant media coverage of the ongoing anti-Christian persecutions in those two countries. The world was just deliberating at the UN-silence. Where is the outrage?

The media seems indifferent or fearful of criticizing the criminal and terrorist activities of Muslim extremists-or journalists get the story plain wrong. Glaring case in point: a recent BBC report, covering the rebel attack on the ancient Syrian Christian village of Maaloula, claimed that “the fighting in Maaloula is the first such attack on a notable Christian community since the start of the uprising. Residents of many Christian villages around Homs and Hama have been fleeing the violence along with members of other communities, but had not up until now been attacked themselves.”

Yet, young Christian girls are being raped and murdered, while Christian churches, monasteries, homes, and workplaces are being systematically destroyed. Syrian Catholic bishops have warned that their country is becoming a “second Iraq” owing to similar patterns of Church attacks and forced expulsion and kidnapping of Christians. During Saddam Hussein’s reign of terror, Iraq’s Christian population plummeted from 1.4 million to fewer than 300,000. Many of those Christian refugees settled in Syria, which was considered, at that time, a more tolerant country.

According to Church sources, the major industrial city of Homs, home to Syria’s largest Christian population, has borne the brunt of violence. Attacks on Christian churches, schools, convents, as well as homes and businesses, have caused a mass exodus. It is estimated that 50,000 Christians, about 90 percent of the Christian population of Homs, have fled to the mountains or have sought refuge in Lebanon. Those left behind cannot find work and earn money to support their families. Food has been scarce and unaffordable. Before the start of the fighting in Syria, the Christian community accounted for some 10 percent of the Syrian population of 22 million.

British Parlimintarian: End Persecution of Christians

 
‎15 ‎October ‎2013, ‏‎02:00:59 AM | adminGo to full article
From Express:

 

Tory MP Philip Hollobone has demanded more be done to stop the persecution of Christians across the Middle East and Africa.

Many Coptic Christians have been killed, tortured and raped while churches have been torched, including 100 in Egypt. Last month Taliban suicide bombers killed 85 worshippers at a Christian church in Peshawar, Pakistan.

Mr Hollobone fears Christians in Syria are now under threat of a genocide on the scale of the 1994 Rwandan massacre of 50,000 Tutsis.

He said: “If Muslims were treated in this country as Christians are in Egypt and Syria, there would be international outrage.”

Christian-Muslim Tensions Still Linger In Kenya

 
‎15 ‎October ‎2013, ‏‎01:54:56 AM | adminGo to full article
From The Washington Post, by Ken Chitwood:

NAIROBI, Kenya — While the smoke that hung over the Westgate Shopping Mall has dissipated, a quiet tension still lingers in the air throughout the capital.

Last month’s attack by al-Shabab militants on a mall frequented by Westerners in the capital city, left at least 67 dead. But the burning of a Christian church in the majority-Muslim city Mombasa just two weeks later suggests the nation is on the precipice of more conflict between Christians and Muslims.

This is dispiriting for many in a country that for years enjoyed relative peace between the two monotheistic religions that dominate the region.

“I am afraid that now, Muslims will attack more and the Christians will arm themselves and fight back,” said Paul Komu, a truck driver and Christian who was driving near Westgate when the attacks occurred.

Kenya is predominantly Christian, with Muslims making up about 11 percent of its population, mostly along the Somali border, its coastal region, and in cities such as Mombasa.

John L. Allen Jr., author of “The Global War on Christians,” wrote that just as Africa is the pacesetter for Christian and Muslim growth, it has also become one of the primary fronts for Christian-Muslim conflict, though not always in Kenya. For years, Kenya has been a refuge for people fleeing strife in other parts of the continent.

But Christian mission agencies such as the Mission Network report incidents of persecution pouring over the Kenyan border with Somalia. Mombasa is a flashpoint for conflict and foreign militants and terror groups have wreaked havoc in the past — as was the case with the 1998 al-Qaida bombing of the U.S. embassy in Nairobi.

To a large extent, day-to-day relations between the Muslims and Christians have been amicable.

Jamal Faroole, a Somali Muslim living in Nairobi, said, “For a long time we have had peace with Christians in this country.”

Likewise, the Rev. David Ongwaye, a Lutheran pastor in Kebirigo, Kenya, said that while there has been more political correctness than practical cooperation, “there was no thought that Muslims were plotting to cause mayhem.”

Now, sentiments have shifted.

“The human mind gets suspicious,” said Faroole. “People were already suspicious of Somali Muslims and now I fear it will only get worse.”

Ongwaye mentioned the targeting of non-Muslims in the mall attack as particularly unsettling. During the siege, the attackers demanded that Muslims identify themselves and leave the scene.

“The incident at Westgate has, in my opinion, rendered Christians more vulnerable to the Muslims and as such any future ‘ecumenism’ will be met with caution. It was very clear that those hostages who would recite the ‘shahada’ were saved from the bullet,” he said, referring to the Muslim profession of faith.

Chinese Government Persecutes Christians

 
‎15 ‎October ‎2013, ‏‎01:46:44 AM | adminGo to full article
From Religion Today:

Washington, D.C. (ICC) — A recent spate of attacks against Christians and house churches in China underlines the country’s relentless habit of persecuting Christians, even at the cost of its own reputation in the international community.

Christians Beaten in Hainan Province

On Aug. 14, a number of Christians in Lingao town, Lincheng county, Hainan Province, were violently beaten by urban management officers when they tried to prevent construction at a building site.

The Christians were looking forward to a church that was originally intended to be constructed at the site, but when local government secretly sold the site to developers, they were left floundering in the dark. As they protested the construction, the violence began and several children and elderly people were injured, with two women going into a coma as a result of the retaliation. When the Christians informed the police, they refused to address the attack.

House Church Pastor Abducted and Assaulted

Also on Aug. 13, Li Shuangping, leader of Linfen house church, was abducted and beaten by agents of the local government. Li was reportedly driving home when he was forced to stop because a young man, who appeared to be intoxicated, staggered into the path of his car. As soon as he stopped, a black sedan drove up next to him and three men got out of the car. Along with the “intoxicated” young man, the four of them dragged Li out of his car, forced him into the black sedan, blindfolded him and restrained him with a rope.

When one of the men drove the car, the other three held him down in the backseat and assaulted him, punching and kicking him in the head, neck and torso. As he was being beaten, they were launching all manner of threats against him and his family, asking whether he would like to die as a result of leading a house church. When the car finally stopped, he was thrown into a cornfield and left alone to find his way home. Li believes that the events of Aug. 13 were secretly ordered by the local government, to threaten him and other house church leaders and to suppress the house church movement.

Christians Join Syrian Army To Fight Jihadists

 
‎15 ‎October ‎2013, ‏‎01:38:54 AM | adminGo to full article
From Catholic Online

Syrian Christians are starting to align with the regime of Bashar al Assad as extremist rebels form an increasing number of the anti-regime fighters. Worried about their churches and homes, Christians are organizing into volunteer units and fighting alongside the regular Syrian army. There is a sense of stalemate and a need for negotiation to end the conflict.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) – France 24 carried the story late last week of “John” a Christian fighting in Assad’s forces. John was interviewed by the agency who wanted to know why Christians, originally neutral in the conflict, have started to gravitate towards the Assad regime.

Christians are a major minority in Syria making about 5 percent of the population. A few have sided with the rebels, however the majority have tried to remain neutral, worried that an unfavorable outcome could bring post-war repercussions.

While Christians may not be major supporters of the Assad regime, they distrust the jihadists whose publicly stated goal is to turn Syria into an Islamic state with conversion to Islam made compulsory.

To accomplish their mission, jihadist fighters have targeted clergy, ransacked churches and shrines, and killed some Christians in their efforts to terrorize Christian enclaves into submission. The Free Syrian Army, that arm of the rebels recognized by the United States and its allies does not endorse the tactics of the jihadists, and has on some occasions actually clashed with them. However, the Syrian uprising is hugely dependent on the influx of al Qaeda-linked fighters and cannot continue without them.

14 People Killed and over 1,000 people homeless in Central Africa

 
‎11 ‎October ‎2013, ‏‎12:20:44 AM | adminGo to full article
From CP World

Clashes in the Central African Republic between Muslims and Christians have killed 14 people in the past week, police and a senior Catholic official have reported.

While Christians make up 80 percent of the Central African Republic’s 4.5 million population, they have been the victims of violence since Seleka rebels took control of the government and overthrew President Francois Bozize in March. Muslims are a relatively small minority in the country, making up only 10 percent.

On Tuesday, Christians in the city of Bangassou organized a protest against Seleka’s predominantly Muslim fighters, said Bangassou police official Edouard Mbiga.

But Muslim community members, backed by Seleka fighters, used force and weapons to halt the march and a conflict broke out between the groups shortly thereafter, killing 10 people.

Attacks on Saturday killed 4 more Christians, confirmed Bangassou’s Catholic Bishop Juan José Aguirre.

“All four of those killed were from the Christian community. We’re overwhelmed, inundated by thousands of men, women, and children seeking refuge from the fighting at the diocese,” he said.

 

Italian Priest, Father Gazzera told The Catholic Herald in August, that the group, composed partly of Arab-speaking Islamists, had killed at least 15 people and made over 1,000 people homeless after attacking five large, mineral-rich villages.

Gazzera pleaded with the international community to do something, as he believed that the armies of neighboring countries were too “poorly planned, equipped and coordinated” to challenge Seleka and restore stability.

“Unless these attacks are stopped, the suffering and displacement can only grow,” said Gazzero.

“Although the international community continues to hold meetings and talk inanely, nothing concrete is being done to help people here or hold back the extremists, terrorists and Islamists who are inflicting such damage,” he added.

Currently, Michel Djotodia, the leader of the Seleka rebellion, is the country’s president, though he has been unsuccessful at curbing the violence.

France and the African Union both have limited troops in the country. The African Union’s 3,600 person mission will not be deployed until next year. France, which has only 450 troops on the ground is considering boosting the number.

Indian Christians Sentenced To Life

 
‎11 ‎October ‎2013, ‏‎12:16:17 AM | adminGo to full article
From Christian Today: 

Seven Indian Christians have been sentenced to life imprisonment after being unjustly convicted of the murder of a militant Hindu leader in 2008, an incident that sparked horrific anti-Christian violence in Orissa state.

A court in the Kandhamal district of Orissa handed down the sentence, along with a 10,000 rupee fine, to each of the seven on 3 October. A senior Christian leader described the verdict as a “travesty of justice”.

Laxmananda Saraswati and four of his aides were gunned down at his spiritual base in Jaleshpata by a large mob on 23 August 2008. A Maoist group claimed responsibility for the attack almost immediately, but militant Hindus blamed Christians instead and turned violently against them.

In the ensuing persecution, around 90 Christians were killed and thousands more injured. Over 56,000 were left homeless as houses were looted and torched, while nearly 300 churches and many other Christian properties were destroyed. Christians were told, “Come back as Hindu or don’t come back at all!”

Only a handful of people have ever been convicted of involvement in the violence, and the authorities disregarded thousands of complaints.

Yet as early as January 2009, only months after the violence, the seven Christians were arrested and charged with Saraswati’s murder. Despite there apparently being no evidence against them, they then languished in prison for nearly five years.

Special tribunals had been established following the carnage to speed up the legal process, but Christians say that these have used every procedural loophole to defer the hearings. The cases were finally transferred to an ordinary court, which convicted the men on 30 September.

The BJP, the principal Hindu nationalist party in India, welcomed the verdict. A spokesman said that the investigation should continue until all the conspirators were caught.

But Sajan George, President of the Global Council of Indian Christians, denounced the court’s decision as unjust.

He said: “It is shameful that innocent fathers of families have been locked in jail for almost five years and subjected to trials for a crime they did not commit”.

Anti-Christian violence has continued sporadically in Orissa since 2008, including in Kandhamal. The Christian community in the district is very tense in the aftermath of the verdict, anticipating a possible backlash against it.

At least 10,000 Christians in Orissa are still homeless five years on, and some have been unwilling to return to their villages knowing that their persecutors may still be at large. With so many churches destroyed and others closed, it is also difficult for them to meet for worship.

Pakistani Text Books: Killing Christians Necessary

 
‎11 ‎October ‎2013, ‏‎12:04:58 AM | adminGo to full article
From CT World:

Some school textbooks in Pakistan include lessons teaching students that killing Christians is a goal that must be achieved for them to obtain martyrdom, according to a report prepared by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

The report also included claims that Islamist groups in Pakistan are launching regular attacks against non-Muslim Pakistanis as well as some sects of Muslims such as Shiites and Ahmadi, whom they do not consider to be real Muslims.

The report states that official and independent media, government leaders and religious scholars have legitimized hate against religious minorities, with the term “minority” itself having come to be seen in a pejorative context.

“As a result of such legitimization of hate through school textbooks, government policies, sermons in mosques and religious congregations, there is growing persecution of Pakistani Christians, Hindus, Shias and Ahmadi Muslims,” the report read.

“Jihad is part of our faith. We will not back down [from our decision],” Shah Farman, an official with a regional political faction, told World Net Daily.

The report added that many textbooks in Pakistan feed the Islamic trend and promote hatred and jihad among primary school students. Shockingly non-Muslim Pakistanis also have to go through the same school texts on a daily basis from a young age.

Vatican Analyst: “persecuted Christians deserves to be the world’s number one human rights priority”

 
‎10 ‎October ‎2013, ‏‎11:50:46 PM | adminGo to full article
From CNA:

 

Denver, Colo., Oct 6, 2013 / 04:06 pm (CNA).- In his new book “The Global War on Christians,” Vatican analyst John Allen, Jr. details anti-Christian abuse worldwide, drawing light to the tremendous scale of violence against the world’s most persecuted religion.

“I don’t think it takes any religious convictions or confessional interests at all to see that defense of persecuted Christians deserves to be the world’s number one human rights priority,” Allen, a noted Vatican journalist and author, told CNA in an Oct. 2 interview.

“You didn’t have to be Jewish in the ’70s to be worried about dissident Jews in the Soviet Union; you didn’t have to be black in the ’80s to be concerned about apartheid in South Africa; and you equally don’t have to be Christian today to recognize that Christians are the most persecuted religious body on the planet.”

Allen’s work, published Tuesday by Image Books, arises directly from a conversation he had with Cardinal Dolan in 2009, in which the prelate made the point that Christians “need to do a better job of telling these stories” of Christian persecution, like the body of “Holocaust literature” showed the suffering of Jews under Hitler.

However, Allen became interested in the subject of anti-Christian persecution while traveling to Ukraine for Pope John Paul II’s 2001 trip there.

At that time, Allen met the granddaughter of an Eastern Catholic priest who had been killed in a gulag during the Soviet era.

“That conversation brought home that martyrdom is very much a feature of the contemporary Christian landscape.”

Prior to that, he said, “like a lot of Catholics … when I thought of martyrdom, I considered it an artifact of the early centuries of the Church, the early Christian martyrs under Nero and Diocletian.”

“The more I would travel the world and meet victims of anti-Christian persecution in various places, the more the scale and scope of this thing came home to me.”

Allen notes that throughout the first decade of the 21st century, 100,000 Christians were killed per year – 11 new martyrs every hour – and secular human rights groups estimate that 80 percent of religious freedom violations are current directed against Christians.

Despite these massive figures, the worldwide persecution of Christians is little known in the U.S., and Allen said the first purpose of his book is “to end the silence about anti-Christian persecution … to put it on the map.”

Highlighting that “this is a literal war against Christians on a global scale,” involving direct physical violence, harassment, and imprisonment, Allen works in the book to chronicle persecution against Christians in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, and eastern Europe.

Having done that, Allen then clarified several myths about Christian persecution, such as the claims that no one saw the persecution coming; the issue is solely a political one; and “it’s all about Islam.”

More Than 100 Christian Sites Attacked In Egypt In Mid-August

 
‎10 ‎October ‎2013, ‏‎11:43:16 PM | adminGo to full article
From Patheos

Churches were burning in Pakistan, while African Christians died and radical forms of Islam threatened monasteries, sanctuaries and villages in Egypt, Syria and Iraq.

That was 1997. Human-rights scholar Paul Marshall kept hearing one question over and over when he addressed this rising tide of persecution: Why didn’t more American Christians protest as their sisters and brothers in the faith were jailed, raped, tortured and killed?

Some Christians, he said, were distracted by apocalyptic talk in which persecution was a good thing, a sign that the end of the world was near. Others weren’t that interested in violence on the other side of the world that threatened believers in ancient churches that looked nothing like their own suburban megachurches.

“The result is a stunning passivity that calmly accepts such suffering,” said Marshall, in an interview for an earlier column for the Scripps Howard News Service. “Perhaps this … could be justified if we were dealing with our own suffering. But to do this with the suffering of another amounts to theological sadism.”

That was 1997. Marshall had just co-written the groundbreaking book “Their Blood Cries Out,” with journalist Lela Gilbert. Since then, I have worked with both of these writers in global projects about religion-news coverage.

Now it’s 2013 and the news about the persecution of Christians has only gotten worse. Marshall, Gilbert and Catholic lawyer Nina Shea recently completed a new volume entitled “Persecuted: The Global Assault on Christians.”

The bottom line: This topic is more relevant than ever.

A year ago, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said, “Christianity is the most persecuted religion in the world.” While some mocked her words, a Pew Research Center study in 2011 found that Christians were harassed, to one degree of violence or another, in 130 countries — more than any other world religion. British historian Tom Holland told a recent London gathering that the world is witnessing the “effective extinction of Christianity from its birthplace” in the Middle East.

Recent losses endured in Egypt have been staggering, with more than 100 Christian sites attacked by well-organized mobs in mid-August, including the destruction of 42 churches — the worst assault on the Coptic Orthodox Church in 700 years. In Syria, rebels linked to al-Qaeda overran Maaloula — famous for being one of three remaining villages in which locals speak ancient Aramaic, the language of Jesus — damaging the priceless St. Thekla monastery and trashing two churches.

Then the headlines got worse, with Islamist gunmen killing 67 or more people in the Westgate mall in Nairobi, Kenya. While Muslims were freed, hostages who would not recite the Shahada — an Islamic confession of faith — were tortured and killed, before their bodies were mutilated. Days later, the Taliban claimed credit for an attack by two suicide bombers on the historic All Saints Church in Peshawar, Pakistan, in which at least 85 worshipers died.

Pope Francis addressed these issues during remarks on Sept. 25, noted John L. Allen, Jr., of the National Catholic Reporter, when reached by email. He is the author of a new book entitled “The Global War on Christians: Dispatches from the Front Lines of Anti-Christian Persecution.”

In Allen’s translation of the event, the pope asked the crowd: “When I think or hear it said that many Christians are persecuted and give their lives for their faith, does this touch my heart or does it not reach me? Am I open to that brother or that sister in my family who’s giving his or her life for Jesus Christ? … How many of you pray for Christians who are persecuted? How many? …

“It’s important to look beyond one’s own fence, to feel oneself part of the Church, of one family of God!”

While the truth is painful, said Marshall, it’s important to asking questions about all those silent believers and their silent churches. If anything, it appears that many American Christians are even less interested in global persecution trends than they were in the past, while their churches are even more independent and focused on a therapeutic, individualistic approach to faith.

“It’s like all of these horrible events are just blips on the screen. They are there, then they are gone and forgotten,” said Marshall. “Sometimes, it’s easy to think that Christians in America don’t even know what is happening to their brothers and sisters around the world.”

Christian leader in Syria: Intervention “fueling criminality, fueling inhumanity, fueling fundamentalism, terrorism”

 
‎10 ‎October ‎2013, ‏‎11:35:07 PM | adminGo to full article
It is interesting to note that the perpetuators came from Iraq; if Saddam was still in power they would have never done this.  From MTT:

Al-Qaida-linked Syrian rebels from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant sacked a Melkite Greek-Catholic Church in the Syrian town of al-Raqqa.

The Melkites follow the Roman Catholic pope but use the rituals of the Greek Orthodox. They have remained loyal to the Assad regime out of fear of heightened persecution by Islamic extremists.

Footage shown on al-Aan TV shows the rebels systematically disassembling the church. They tear down the cross on top of the church and replace it with a black jihadist flag. They chant “Allahu akbar!” and sing hymns throughout the operation.

The video also shows young children desecrating the cross taken from the church.

A Saudi militant is heard saying of the cross, “The ‘Nazarenes’ (Christians) worship it.” And a child is heard saying, “This is the ‘Messiah’ (Christ) they worship.”

An Armenian Orthodox church was also attacked.

Christian leaders such as Melkite Patriarch Gregory III have warned Syria’s Christian population could a major casualty should Assad fall and Syria descend into chaos.

“Enough with the intervention,” Gregory told the Catholic News Service in August. “It is fueling hatred, fueling criminality, fueling inhumanity, fueling fundamentalism, terrorism — all these things are the fruit of intervention. Enough!”

study by IHS Jane’s found that nearly half of the 100,000 rebel fighters seeking to oust al-Assad are either jihadists or hardline Islamists. Of them, 10,000 fighters belong to Jabhat al-Nusra, al-Qaida’s Syrian affiliate.

Rebels around al-Raqaa, located in north-central Syria, professed their allegiance to al-Qaida on Sept. 21, according to a video posted on social media and released by the Daily Mail. The rebels had been aligned with the Western-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA).

According to the BBC, the FSA is an umbrella group that includes numerous groups that act independently. Estimates suggest there are 1,000 bands of fighters in the conflict.

Concerns have been raised about funding the FSA due to lingering questions about connections to al-Qaida.

“It is no secret that we have ties with everybody, even the brothers in the Nusra Front, and we cooperate in many places,” FSA Gen. Abd Al-Baset Tawila said in a June 13 interview with Al-Jazeera Arabic translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI). “In all candidness, I would like to see a civilized state, with Islamic law. Let me give you an example. We would like our army, in the future, to have a clear Islamic nature.”

More than 40 Syrian Islamist groups recently announced they had formed an “Army of Islam” to fight against Assad on Sunday.

Thirteen rebel brigades previously announced they were disaffiliating with the FSA and the Syrian National Council (SNC), which is recognized by the Obama administration as the legitimate representatives of the Syrian people, and uniting into an “Islamic Alliance.”

British Pakistani Bishop To England: Do Not Become Anti-Christian

 
‎10 ‎October ‎2013, ‏‎11:24:14 PM | adminGo to full article
From Christian Concern: 

Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali has warned that Britain risks becoming actively “anti-Christian” at the launch of Christian Concern’s publishing house “Wilberforce Publications” which seeks to equip Christians to “face the challenges of the secular world”.

Marginalisation

Drawing on his own experience of persecution, both personally and as President of OXTRAD, Bishop Nazir-Ali said that persecution “always begins with marginalisation and discrimination in the workplace and in public life”.

He added that Britain is in danger of becoming not just “unchristian” but “anti-Christian” unless the growing marginalisation of Christian faith in Britain is addressed.

Forty Murdered In Nigeria

 
‎10 ‎October ‎2013, ‏‎11:16:35 PM | adminGo to full article
From Middle East Forum, by Raymond Ibrahim:

 

Many around the world were recently made aware—got a small glimpse—of the Islamic jihad that plagues northern Nigeria, at the hands of Boko Haram, an organization dedicated to eradicating Christianity and enforcing the totality of Sharia law.

Last Sunday, September 29, around 1 a.m. Islamic terrorists dressed in Nigerian military uniforms invaded an agricultural college, shooting students as they slept in their dorms, killing a total of some 50 students.

As with the Islamic assaults in Kenya and Pakistan from the previous weekend—the former on a mall, the latter on a Christian church, leaving a combined total of nearly 200 people dead and hundreds injured—this latest jihadi attack in Nigeria is, far from an aberration, simply the latest in a tremendously long list of jihadi atrocities, most often targeting Christians.

Indeed, when it comes to Nigeria, it is difficult just keeping up with the atrocities—so frequent, sometimes daily, are they.

Thus the day before the agricultural college attack, in Kaduna state, Nigeria, Muslim herdsmen slaughtered 15 Christians. And the day before that, Islamic militants killed a Christian pastor and his son, torched their church in Dorawa, and killed another 28 people.

Jihadi attacks on schools and colleges are actually common. In July, 40 Christians were killed in an attack on a boarding school in Yobe state, Nigeria. The dormitory was set on fire in the attack and those fleeing gunned down. A month earlier, 16 other students were shot dead in attacks on a secondary school in Yobe and another school in Borno.

One year ago, in October 2012, Boko Haram jihadis stormed the Federal Polytechnic College, “separated the Christian students from the Muslim students, addressed each victim by name, questioned them, and then proceeded to shoot them or slit their throat,” killing up to 30 Christians.

This business of separating Muslims from “infidels” and releasing the former occurs with regular occurrence during jihadi attacks (inasmuch as it is good to kill an infidel, it is bad to kill a fellow Muslim, according to Islamic law). Thus, the weekend before this most recent terror attack in Nigeria, after jihadis in Kenya had raided a packed mall, they, too, made it a point to differentiate between Muslims and non-Muslims before initiating the carnage.

Peshawar’s Church of Martyrs

 
‎09 ‎October ‎2013, ‏‎07:02:36 PM | adminGo to full article
Our team in Pakistan has been focused primarily on the victims of the Peshawar suicide bombing at All Saints Church recently. Below, you will find the history of the church and some exclusive details about what has been going on there since the attacks.

History of All Saints Church:
The Rev. Worthington Jukes built all Saints Church in 1883. This church is famous for its unique architecture, which was adapted from the local mosques and makes it unique in Pakistani church history. The local Muslims of Peshawar were against the building of the Anglican Church from the beginning and attempted to stop its construction. Many Christians lost their lives building this church, which is why the Church was known as CHURCH OF MARTYRS. Sadly, many more martyrs gave their lives on September 22nd 2013.

Peshawar_Coffins-e1381312129771

Suicide Attack:
More than 500 people gathered for Sunday service on September 22nd, with 64 children present in the Sunday school center on the church compound. The two attackers struck at the end of the service outside the church while food was being given out. Peshawar is the main town in the province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, which has borne the brunt of a bloody Islamist insurgency in recent years.

The beautiful white-stone Church is located near the frontier tribal areas where Islamist militants have their strongholds. Hundreds of parishioners, many of them women and children, streamed out of the building, when both suicide attackers blew themselves up in the midst of the crowd. Suddenly, all the joy and happiness turned into screams and pain. The blood and pieces of flesh were everywhere; those who survived were crying and searching for their loves ones.

Mr. Khalid Shahzed, a renowned Human rights activist, was quoted as saying:

“After the blast, the local NGO’s ambulances rushed to the church and started taking the injured to the hospital. Sadly, there were no doctors or expert paramedical staff to handle the situation. Due to inexperienced staff, many people who were brought in alive died of their injuries. In the hospital, there wasn’t any emergency equipment, medicine, or any expert doctors. Not only that but the Muslim staff showed their prejudice by not even touching the bodies of the affected.”

One hundred twenty-three people died in this deadly blast and another one hundred sixty-nine people were injured. Amongst those injured there was a large number of women and children. This tragic incident resulted in the murder of many people who had been great assets to our community, to include doctors, teachers, principals, students, and government civil servants.

The Role of Christian NGO’
Many of the phony Christian NGOs played their usual role. The day after the attack they visited the church and many of the victims. There were the usual photo sessions, making of videos and writing reports with promises to help the victims. The phony NGOs performed their usual tricks and instead of helping these victims, they’re using these photo ops to raise money from the world to get donations for themselves with virtually nothing going to the victims.

Apart from us, there is only one other NGO we know for a fact that is helping people to get medical treatment as well as just one political leader of the ruling party. The rest just stand idly by with many taking advantage of the situation for their own personal gain.

The Role of the Church in Peshawar
This is the most disturbing of all and very hurtful to report. The Peshawar diocese is one of the wealthiest dioceses in Pakistan and it appears they are denying help to their own church members. Even one of the church members stated:

“When this blast took place the Presbyter in charge – Rev. Ijaz – who was present in the Church, left the compound and went to his home while people were lying dead and injured. On the Sunday of the attack, the Bishop was in Bannu. Rev. Ijaz didn’t show himself to his flock until Bishop Humphrey Peter arrived in Peshawar.”

The Local Church members also stated to us that the Bishop and his priests only officiated at the funerals of those who were personally known to them. The rest of the funerals were conducted by Pastors from other denominations, including Catholic priests and salvation army pastors who comforted the grieving.

Twenty years ago, this diocese spent millions of dollars on thousands of Afghanis in the Afghan-Russian war. They saved the lives of thousands of people but when it comes to their own people, the Church has been found wanting. Even the Mission Hospital, which is under the Diocese, didn’t have proper medical facilities for the wounded. Rescue Christians – because of the generosity of its donors – has now moved several of the victims from mission hospital to RMI hospital for expert medical care.

According to our sources, there are about 3 to 4 million rupees ($30-40,000) in the church account, as well as millions more rupees in the diocese account. None of this money so far has been appropriated to help any of the victims. This cruelty and negligence has increased the number of the deaths. According to our team, twenty people could have been saved if they had been provided the proper medical treatment.

What makes us different from Others?
Rescue Christians does not have an office located in Peshawar so it was a couple of days before we could get our team there. We worked fast to evaluate the different case histories and within next few days we started providing the medical assistance to the most seriously wounded patients. So far, we are providing medical assistance to eleven people. We have transferred them all to the best private hospitals in Peshawar. In Pakistan, this treatment would be regarded as very expensive but in USA terms it’s quite inexpensive but still in the multiple thousands of dollars. This week alone, we have sent about $15,000 to Pakistan for this emergency aid. If you have not donated yet please do what you can as we expect to have to send much more over in the coming weeks.

The Unnecessarily Tragic Tale of Robin Morris in Peshawar

 
‎05 ‎October ‎2013, ‏‎03:36:37 AM | adminGo to full article
 

Robin Morris was one of the victims of the recent suicide bombing in Peshawar, Pakistan. While his injuries should not have been considered life-threatening, he is no longer alive. Robin’s passing was both tragic and unnecessary, not because of the attack but because of a lack of treatment afterward.

Here is a note we received about Robin from our contact in Pakistan (the note was sent to us earlier today):

Last night, as we were on our way back to Lahore, Robin Morris called us at about 12:00 a.m. He requested us to help him with money so he could be moved to a good hospital; he was in desperate need of an operation. He had ball bearings (which were used in Church blast) in his both legs and had multiple fractures.

We promised him that we would be back within the next couple of days and to please hang on and wait for us.

We just learned that he died a few minutes ago and we feel so helpless.

He was the Employee of the Church of Pakistan but they also did not support him. He requested assistance from almost every NGO but received nothing.

He was the father of two minor kids.

Our contact also provided us with some details about other victims of the bombing…

Sabira Zulifqar – Her one eye had been damaged in the blast and doctors had to remove it. Her daughter had multiple fractures in her arm, whereas her husband had to have chest surgery. We need to shift all the family members to private hospitals and we need about 100,000 PKR (approx. $1000) for this family.

Khalida – She was 7 months pregnant but lost her child as a result of the blast because of infection in her tubes she has been operated on twice. She is in a government hospital and in need of proper treatment. She still needs surgery. This can cost us about between 70,000-80,000 PKR ($700 – $800).

Kashmala Munawar – Thirteen year-old girl in the 9th grade. She lost one of her legs due to the blast. If she were in any Private hospital, her leg likely could have been saved. During this deadly blast, Kashmala’s two sisters (Fiza and Samera) and mother were also badly injured. Her mother and two sisters were moved by the government in Islamabad.

This is my personal request that we should help this family with its most urgent and basic needs. We would like to get her an artificial leg and support her in the treatment. It’s really important.

We need to shift Kashmala to private hospital as well.

**UPDATE**

Just now I received a call from our contact in Peshawar. She told us that “Doctors have removed Kashmala’s second leg too.” that is why we are requesting to provide her to private treatment, which will cost approximately 150,000 PKR ($1500).

Attached is her picture which we took yesterday.

While our overall mission in Pakistan has not changed, we are compelled to focus right now on the immediate need for getting aid to the victims of the Peshawar suicide bombing. A key problem there right now has to do with the complete lack of care these victims are getting from government hospitals. Many of these victims don’t have to die; they just need more professional care.

We ask for your assistance in helping these victims. Any amount you can afford will help.

Both Al-Shabaab And Obama Family Want Islamic Kenya

 
‎27 ‎September ‎2013, ‏‎06:23:37 AM | adminGo to full article
By Theodore Shoebat

Both the al-Shabaab terrorists, and the Obama family, want the nation of Kenya to be under Sharia code.

Al-Arab wrote that Obama’s cousin, Musa Obama, “studied Sharia in Medina”, called “upon the Arab and Islamic states to put more effort toward aiding the Kenyan Muslim brethren, especially since there is much support coming from Western nations and Western churches,” said that his organization, the Mama Sarah Obama Foundation, “gives scholarships to study Sharia in Medina [Saudi Arabia].”

He also stated “that despite the fact that Barack Obama hasn’t visited his tribe in Kenya since his election in the United States, there is a continual communication between him and several members of his family and his tribe in Kenya, of which the Kenyan prime minister is also a member.”

So, we know for a fact that Musa Obama studied Sharia in Medina, that his organization gives scholarships for Muslim youths to study Sharia in Saudi Arabia, for the purpose of dechristinizing and extinguishing Christianity in Kenya where the majority of people are Christians. Musa Obama, Sarah Obama (Obama’s grandmother) and Sayed Obama (Obama’s uncle) are lending scholarships for youths to enter the three major Sharia schools in Saudi Arabia, Umm al-Qura, the Islamic University in Medina, and the University of Imam Muhammad bin Saud Islamic University in Riyadh.

Now, we have al-Shabaab terrorists executing a slaughter of people in a Nairobi mall, and when we look into what this group is, what we find is that they are a result of youths being sent to these very same universities in Saudi Arabia, including the one where Musa Obama studied.

In the sixties and seventies, the major conduit of wahabism into Somalia, was the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood bringing in Islamic schools into Somalia. Somalian youths were then given scholarships for three major Islamic universities, Umm al-qura University, the University of Medina, and Imam Muhammad bin Saud Islamic University, all three of these institutions are the same schools to where the Mama Obama Sara Fund is sending Kenyan youths to learn Sharia.

The Gulf Issues Centre For Strategic Studies describes these institutions as “the spring of Wahhabism”, and further writes:

[Wahhabists] grew up in the Wahhabi and Salafi schools which imbibed radical ideas in the Islamic University in Medina, Umm Al-Qura University in Makkah, and the University of Imam Muhammad bin Saud Islamic University in Riyadh.

A 2010 African Policy Briefing for the International Crisis Group, in writing on the history of wahhabism and the al-Shabab group in Somalia, places its significant growth with Somalian youths being recruited into Umm al-Qura University and the University of Medina, the same schools to which the Mama Sarah Obama Fund brings Kenyan youths to study Islamic Sharia:

Saudi Arabia – flush with petro-dollars after the oil shocks of the 1970s – was particularly instrumental in promoting Wahhabism. and Islamic charities sprang up in all the major urban centres and even in the remote countryside. Well-funded madrasas (religious schools) Thousands of Somali youngsters were brought to Saudi universities – principally Medina and Umm al-Qura – to study Wahhabi jurisprudence (fiqh) and missionary work (da’wa).

The two named universities are the ones which the Obamas are heavily associated with. Moreover, Obama’s brother, Malik Obama, is the executive secretary for the Islamic Da’wa Organization of Sudan, which is working to make Africa Islamic, the same goal of the two named universities’ da’wa programs.

The Foreign Policy Council attributed the rise of Islamic fundamentalism in Somalia substantially to these same three universities:

After Somalia’s independence in 1960, Egyptians opened secondary schools in many of the country’s towns. In the 1960s and 1970s, Saudi religious and educational institutions—especially the Islamic University of Medina, the Umm al-Qura University in Mecca, and the Imam Muhammad bin Saud Islamic University in Riyadh—joined al-Azhar in offering scholarships to the graduates of these institutions. This development has parallels with the entrenchment of radical Islam in nearby Sudan via the establishment of the Sudanese Muslim Brotherhood, the precursor to the currently-ruling National Congress Party (formerly the National Islamic Front).

It was from this very Islamism that al-Shabaab arose, and, furthermore, the report parallels this rise to the founding of the National Congress Party in North Sudan, which is ran by Omar al-Bashir, the same Muslim Brotherhood member who Barack Obama’s brother, Malik Obama, is working with to make Africa fully Islamic and free of all Christianity.

This goal to replace Christianity with Islam in Kenya by the Obamas, was expressed by al-Arab in their interview with Musa Obama in the World University Ruff in Nairobi:

Muslims [in Kenya] suffer from the monumental Christianization aided by Zionist expansionism that infiltrates the nation.

Al-Shabaab, as well, wants to purge Kenya of all Christianity. When they were slaughtering people in the Nairobi mall, they lined civilians up, and executed them after deeming them non-Muslims because they could not “name the Prophet Mohammed’s mother or recite passages from the Koran”. There was one man who was Muslim who was spared after he recited some verses of the Koran.

Lets not forget that Kenya is 83% Christian, so we know that this massacre was done specifically to kill Christians. In 2011 it was reported that al-Shabaab decapitated a Christian in Somalia named Juma Nuradin Kamil.

But no matter, the world cares more for sodomites in Russia than Christians being massacred.

There is a very significant figure in the Nairobi mall shooting, Hassan Mahad Omar, also known as Hassaan Hussein Adam “Abu Salman.” Hassan is the unofficial mufti and ideologue for al-Shabaab, and their terrorist attacks are linked, directly and indirectly, to his fatwas.

Hassan teaches Islamic doctrine and has a degree from an Islamic university in Saudi Arabia, which means that he is interlinked with the three major Islamic universities to where the Obamas are sending Islamic youths to study Islam and Sharia.

Al-Shabaab, the group who slaughtered the people in the Christian majority nation of Kenya, and the Obamas, are associated with the universities which gave rise to the ideology of al-Shabaab, and both are striving for the same goal: an Islamic Kenya where Christianity would be outlawed.

Is it any wonder, now, that Obama prevented the revolution against the Muslim Brotherhood dictator of North Sudan, Omar al-Bashir, and that he is giving weapons to the jihadists in Syria?

Situation in Pakistan deteriorating fast for Christians

Pakistani Victims

Pakistani Victims

 

It appears that in the wake of the suicide bombing in Pakistan, violence is escalating, not receding. Christians in the area were understandably outraged by the attack. In response, the Muslim community appears to have taken up for the bombers’ cause and is attacking the victims.

 

We received the following note from our contact in Pakistan…

Just Now i received a call from a Bishop. He told me that the situation in Pakistan is getting worse after Christian reaction to the Peshawar Bomb Blast. Muslims of Iqbal town Islamabad are threatening Christians, and the angry mob of Muslims beaten and tortured the Christians in Zia Musjid Area and Khana Pul Islamabad. Similarly, Muslims have attacked the Christian Colony Korangi No 3, 1/2. Because of this ongoing tension, hundreds of Christians had to flee from there houses.

Need urgent prayers.
Blessings

One of the many questions those in the west have about terror attacks is why ‘moderate’ Muslims don’t come out in forceful opposition to such attacks. When it comes to this suicide bombing in Pakistan, at least, the most vocal Muslim opposition appears to be directed at the victims of the attack.

In order for us to help to the degree of saving thousands from persecution, we also need thousands of people to participate at any level they can afford. G-d will bless you for your generosity in not turning your back on your brethren. If you can help, great. If you can spread the word of our work by word of mouth and get others to know what we are trying to do, then you will also be doing wonders for G-d’s people.

Christian Girl Saved By Rescue Christians: Muslims “rapidly raped me and forced me to embrace Islam”

 
‎20 ‎September ‎2013, ‏‎09:52:21 AM | adminGo to full article
Tania Rebecca, a young Christian girl from Pakistan, was kidnapped by Muslims who repeatedly gang raped her and violently pressed her to become Muslim, they then sold her to other Muslims who inflicted her with the utmost of wanton cruelty.Tania recounted her unbearable tortures when she said:

…they sold me to Muhammad Ismael and Khadim Hussain. Both of them rapidly raped me and tortured me severely. They used to tie me to a tree and rape me. They used to torture me by burning my body with cigarettes, and cut my body with sharp knives… They had severely tortured me with sharp blades. …I cannot even explain in front of the camera how badly I was tortured by them in different parts of my body.

A prominent NGO told her that they were going to take her case, but they only used her experience as a marketing story to gain money from sympathizing donors:

…a renowned NGO of Pakistan took my case. I was so ill and weak but they did not provide me any medical treatment. They took my case just to earn money and used me as a show piece.

She only received help from Rescue Christians, as she explains in her own words:

Later on with the help of someone we contacted Rescue Christian. They started helping us by providing home and monthly stipend. They also provided me medical treatment as well as legal help. I was barbarically mishandled but nobody helped us. But our brothers (Rescue Christians Staff) are helping me by all means. I am really thankful to them. I am an orphan and my mother is my only support. I am thankful to Rescue Christians for their help. May God bless them and use them more and more.

Watch this video, see her suffering countenance, and comprehend what violence and oppressions Christians are in under the Muslim heretics.

 

 

Of course there is something you can do about it, give what you can to Rescue Christians, and all the money you donate will go directly to the families who we are supporting.

 

Rescue Christians Hires Legal Team to Overturn False Judgement and Life Sentence

 
‎18 ‎September ‎2013, ‏‎02:59:32 AM | adminGo to full article
On 13th July 2013, Sajjad Masih, a young Christian man was sentenced to Life in prison by Mian Shahzad Raza, the additional session Judge of Gojra. The Prosecution failed to provide any evidence against Sajjad. Despite the lack of such evidence, the judge still sentenced him to life in prison.

Sajjad was accused – under the strict Blasphemy law – of violating section 295-C and 25-D of the Telegraph ACT and the FIR (criminal complaint) was registered by Tariq Saleem, who was the resident of Kot Ghulam Mohammad city Gojra.

On 29th Dec 2011, Sajjad Masih, through his lawyer Javed Masih, surrendered to Police as they were regularly harassing his family. The police tortured him to extract a confession for a so-called crime he did not commit.

Gojra City is a very sensitive area for blasphemy cases. Earlier in 2009, due to a similar case, Muslims set ablaze the Christian colony and eight people were burned alive. The fire was started from the Korian Village, Dist. Toba Tek Singh and hundreds of houses were turned to ashes. Many families fled their homes and shifted to other areas of the country.

The area is also known as the home of the banned militant organization – Lashkar e Jhangvi. It was reported earlier that the local government is backing up this organization and even after July 13th, when Sajjad Masih was sentenced, hundreds of Muslims protested on the road of Gojra city to change his sentence of life in prison to a death sentence. They put banners all over the Gojra city.

Banner in Gojra

“The Only punishment for the blasphemer; Cut his head from the body. Life in prison is not acceptable… not acceptable… not acceptable.”

Banner in Gojra City

Banner in Gojra City

“Immediately Hang the Blasphemer and revoke the lifetime imprisonment. Oh ruler, act sanely.”

After we found out other NGO’s had botched this sensitive case and by request from the family of Sajjad Masih we decided to provide resources and help to try and secure Sajjid’s release. We are now helping the persecuted young man and his family with a legal team. Our Lawyers Mr. Javed Masih advocate, Mr. Tariq Iqbal Advocate and Mr. Nadeem Hassan Advocate filed an appeal against the judgement dated 13/7/2013 in the High court Lahore. We are also filing an Acquittal Application in the High court of Lahore.

 

Sajjad Family and Legal Team.

Sajjad Family and Legal Team.

 

It is quite unusual and surprising that two FIRs (criminal complaints) were registered against Sajjad Masih for the same offense (FIR number 820/2011 and 80/2012 under section 295-C). However, we believe that G-d will help us rescue Sajjad Masih and restore his freedom, reuniting him with his family.

Muslims Slit A Christian Man’s Throat, Then Tell The Wife, ‘Jesus Didn’t Come to Save Him’

 
‎17 ‎September ‎2013, ‏‎11:41:20 AM | adminGo to full article
From Christian Post:

Ghastly attacks on Christians mocked as “Crusaders” in Syria continued unabated as Jihadists reportedly forced one man to convert to Islam at gunpoint and slit the throat of another Christian woman’s fiancé and then told her, “Jesus didn’t come to save him.”

Residents who fled from the ancient town of Maalula in Syria told AFP that jihadists ambushed the town last week and forced a man to convert to Islam at gunpoint.

“They arrived in our town at dawn… and shouted ‘We are from the Al-Nusra Front and have come to make lives miserable for the Crusaders,” said one woman identified as Marie in Damascus, where many people from Maalula fled after rebels first attacked that town on Sept. 4.

One of the most renowned Christian towns in Syria, many of Maalula’s approximately 5,000 residents speak Aramaic, the language Jesus spoke. Rebels want to tighten their control of the town for its strategic value as a launching point to level attacks on the highway between the capital and Homs, a key regime supply route.

On Tuesday, Marie and hundreds of others in exile in Damascus, attended the burial of three Christian pro-regime militiamen who were killed in fighting.

Adnan Nasrallah, 62, told AFP that an explosion destroyed an archway just across from his house that leads into Maalula during the fighting last week.

“I saw people wearing Al-Nusra headbands who started shooting at crosses,” the Christian senior told the AFP. One of the shooters, he said, “put a pistol to the head of my neighbor and forced him to convert to Islam by obliging him to repeat ‘there is no God but God’…Afterwards they joked, ‘he’s one of ours now’.”

Nasrallah said he operated a restaurant, called Maalula, in the State of Washington in the U.S. for 42 years when he decided to return to Syria shortly before the uprising erupted in Syria in March 2011.

He said when the rebels came to town, his Muslim neighbors rejoiced. His sister Antoinette disputed that story, however, saying the people rejoicing were refugees from out of town.

Another Maalula resident, Rasha said the jihadists brutally murdered her fiancé Atef, who was a part of the town’s militia.

“I rang his mobile phone and one of them answered,” she said.

“Good morning, Rashrush,” a voice answered, calling her by her nickname according to AFP. “We are from the Free Syrian Army. Do you know your fiancé was a member of the shabiha (pro-regime militia) who was carrying weapons, and we have slit his throat?”

Rasha said the man told her Atef was asked to denounce his faith and convert to Islam and he refused.

“Jesus didn’t come to save him,” the rebel taunted.

Muslims Terrorize Christians, With American Support Of Course

 
‎17 ‎September ‎2013, ‏‎03:44:11 AM | adminGo to full article
By Theodore Shoebat 

In accordance to what I predicted in 2012, the US, France, and the UK, have accentuated their promise to the rebels, that they will continue to provide support for them.  

The US, being the empire of evil that it has become, is still draining its money (paid by the citizens of course) to help further the cause of heresy. This is because America has become a nation where heretics and heresies have infiltrated and inundated the church and the society. Why should it surprise us that a nation of heretics, ruled by a heretic, is helping heretics, kill the orthodox?

The fight for one of the most ancient Christian sites, Maaloula, is still going on. The Syrian military has managed to take control, but this has not stopped the rebels from continuing their assault to retake the village.

It is quite obvious that there is an Islamic incentive to wipe out Christianity from the village, the jihadists and the American interventionists of course do not want you to know or think this. When the Muslims invaded Maaloula priorly, they took a monastery hostage, and filmed two nuns, asking them if they were harmed to which the women responded that they weren’t.

Here is the video:

 

Now, by looking at the footage it is apparent that the nuns are terrified and are speaking under duress. This is fully confirmed by the U.S. leader of the Eastern Orthodox Church of Antioch, Metropolitan Philip Saliba, who called the nuns during the hostage situation (if you watch the video, you will hear the phone ringing and one of the nuns answering it and speaking very briefly before hanging up). He recounted the conversation and revealed what really happened in the monastery:

When I spoke to the mother superior, she was surrounded by the rebels. She could not speak very freely. She said oh, oh, we are OK, we are OK, we – everything is all right, and that was not the case. I understood later on that one of the rebels knocked on the door of the convent, and the nuns said who is it, and he wouldn’t answer.

He told them to open the door otherwise I will put a bomb underneath the door and walk in. So they opened the door.

 

Concurrent to what have I said numerous times, Saliba also affirmed the anti-Christian intentions of the revolutionaries, showing that the Muslims see Christians as blasphemers against Islam:

 My hope is that the [Assad] regime stays. The alternative is to have al-Qaida, al-Qaida that destroyed our Twin Towers in New York City and attacked the Pentagon and exploded a plane over Pennsylvania. They have been fighting us all over. They hate us as Americans. They hate the Christians. They have – they call us blasphemers, you know.

When we speak of the Islamic problem, we must understand that Islam was founded with the primary purpose of destroying the Church. While of course there are persecutions done against non-Christians, the fact that the Cross is their main target still remains.

War with Christianity, is Islam’s war, and war with Islam, is Christianity’s war.

Rescue Christians Saves Kidnapped Girl Forced To Embrace Islam

 
‎12 ‎September ‎2013, ‏‎10:20:43 PM | adminGo to full article
From our Rescue Christians team…

On 22 August 2013, three Pakistani Muslim men – Umar Saghar, Muhammad Kashif and Shahid Nazir – abducted Shama Nasir, a fifteen year-old who is the second child of Nasir Masih. Few days before this incident occurred, these three men visited Nasir Masih and asked him to embrace Islam, which he refused instantly. Then, on 22 August, when Nasir Masih was at work, they entered the house and beat his wife and children before kidnaping Shama his 15 year old daughter.

Shama_Nasir-e1379002598530

Shama Nassir: Rescued

That night, Nasir Masih – along with some local Christians – went to the police station to register a complaint against Umar Saghar, Muhammad Kashif and Shahid Nazir. However, instead of taking their application, the police stated that his daughter Shama had embraced Islam and was married to Umar Saghar. The police humiliated Nasir Masih and other Christians, threatening to put them in jail if they came back.

Nasir Masih went to several Christian NGOs and Churches to help him to rescue his daughter but no help was provided. Soon thereafter, Nasir Masih contacted us through one of the previous victims we had helped. On 9th September, we investigated the matter. We engaged with some of the influential Muslims through our Lawyers to help us rescue the young girl. After two days of meetings with Muslims Clerics and influential political persons, we were able to rescue Shama Nasir from Umar Saghar.

Initially, Umar Saghar refused to hand Shama over, stating that “she is his wife now and he will not return her.” Some of the Muslim Clerics who backed Umar also stated that “she is Muslim now and you cannot take her back.” However, our team and a Muslim friend pressured Umar and Muslim Cleric Qari Aslam to bring the girl to the meeting and to ask her if she accepts to be a Muslim and remain the husband of Umar. Then this matter would immediately be finished.”

On the evening of the 11th September – as soon as Shama saw her father – she began shouting requesting her rescue from Umar, saying that “she did not accept Islam and that Umar had forcibly put her thumb print on various legal papers.” Shama also said – in front of everyone – that “I want to go with my father”.

Our lawyer warned Umar that if he would come after the minor girl again then he would take serious action against him. Our lawyer also stated that we will have Shama undergo a medical checkup and if she was sexually assaulted then we will also file a case of abduction and rape. As Umar and his companions left, they made threats against all of us. Our people on the ground in Pakistan then moved Shama and her father to Lahore City for their protection from Umar and his companions.

Today, our people sent Shama for a medical and DNA report. We have also filed the application in the Court for registering a FIR (criminal complaint) against Umar and his associates. However, according to Shama, she stated that Umar raped and tortured her many times. We hope that this minor Christian girl will get justice.

Let me underscore the great bravery and righteousness of our leaders and people on the ground in Pakistan. They truly are doing work that puts themselves at great personal risk and similar risk to what Raoul Wallenberg did to save the Jews. Please pray for them and if you have not supported our work financially yet please consider doing so as you will be literally saving lives.

Afghan Members Of Parliament Call For Killing Of Christians

 
‎12 ‎September ‎2013, ‏‎10:40:34 AM | adminGo to full article
From Prophecy News Watch:

Fifteen months ahead of the planned withdrawal of U.S. combat troops from Afghanistan, an anti-Christian hate campaign involving several leading Afghan lawmakers and some media outlets is raising additional concerns about the future of religious freedom in the conservative Islamic country.

Advocacy groups say the anger is directed at Afghan Christians in India – where thousands of Afghan refugees remain and a small church congregation meets in New Delhi – and that the lawmakers concerned are calling for them to face the death penalty.

Converts from Islam to Christianity should be killed according to Islamic law (shari’a), in a bid to stop the growth of Christianity among Afghans inside and outside the country, according to one leading member of parliament cited by the Afghan Voice Agency news service.

Mohabat News, an independent Iranian Christian news agency, reported on Sunday that Nazir Ahmad Hanafi said several weeks ago that “Afghani citizens continue to convert to Christianity in India.

Numerous Afghanis have become Christians in India. This is an offense to Islamic laws and according to the Qur’an they need to be executed.”

Hanafi, an independent who represents the province of Herat, is a prominent lawmaker who heads the parliament’s Legislative Commission and reportedly received the third highest number of votes in the 2010 parliamentary election.

Barnabas Fund, an international charity that supports minority Christians in Islamic countries, said Hanafi made the comments during a parliamentary session on the subject.

It said that two days earlier another lawmaker, Abdul Sattar Khawasi, demanded that the Afghan government put pressure on Indian authorities to provide a list of Afghans who have converted to Christianity there.

That would enable the Afghan government to arrest and punish them if they return home in the future, he said.

Khawasi has a history of calling for the death penalty for “apostates” from Islam. Last July he began leading a campaign to outlaw popular local television programs modeled on such successful shows in the West as American Idol and the X Factor, complaining that they feature unveiled women singing and dancing.

Mohabat said another lawmaker, Abdul Latif Pedram, blamed the reported increase in conversions to Christianity on the presence of U.S. forces.

“The presence of the U.S. in Afghanistan results in the conversion of Afghans to Christianity,” it quoted Pedram – an unsuccessful presidential candidate in 2004 and 2009 – as saying. “The United States’ long-term plan is to attack Afghani culture. Converting Afghan citizens serves that purpose.”

Mohabat and Barnabas Fund both noted that the speaker of the national parliament, Abdul Rauf Rahimi, also waded in to the debate over converts, instructing the parliamentary national security committee to follow up the issue.

Barnabas Fund said that after the parliamentary debates some media outlets got involved.

“For ten consecutive nights at the end of August, two TV channels broadcast photos of the leader of the Afghan church in Delhi, calling for him to be executed, and also showed images of other Afghan converts in India plus footage of baptisms,” it said.

The Union of Catholic Asia News reported last month on the New Delhi congregation of Afghan Christians, quoting a pastor as saying its members are frequently threatened by Afghan Muslims, and saying the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) did not pay proper attention to the plight of Afghan Christians.

Queries sent to the UNHCR did not bring a reply by press time, but the agency has in the past declined to discuss cases.

More than 2,100 American service personnel have been killed in Afghanistan since late 2001, of a total of more than 3,300 foreign coalition troops.

Three days to recant, or face death

Last week, Afghan President Hamid Karzai issued a decree reserving one seat in the national parliament for a representative of the Hindu and Sikh minorities. Those tiny minorities are targeted for discrimination and harassment too, although they are arguably better off than their Christian compatriots.

According to the State Department there were 13 Sikh places of worship (gurdwaras) in Afghanistan last year and five Hindu temples, but not a single church for a community which could be anywhere from 500- to 8,000-strong.

The department’s latest international religious freedom report, which covers 2012, also noted that there were no Christian schools. There were several Sikh schools and some Hindus sent their children to those, it says.

Conversion from Islam is a highly sensitive matter.

“Under some interpretations of Islamic law, converting from Islam to another religion is deemed apostasy and considered an egregious crime,” the report said. “Male citizens over age 18, or female citizens over age 16 of sound mind, who convert from Islam have three days to recant their conversions or possibly face death by stoning, deprivation of all property and possessions, and/or the invalidation of their marriage.”

“Legal aid for imprisoned converts from Islam remained difficult due to most lawyers’ personal objection to defending apostates,” it added.

The Taliban seized control of most of Afghanistan in 1996 and ruled it under its ultra-strict interpretation of Islamic law until toppled by U.S.-led military action after September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Refugees who subsequently returned home included a small number of Afghans who had converted to Christianity while living abroad.

A little over two years later Karzai’s U.S.-backed government signed a new constitution into law which both claims to uphold freedom of religion and enshrines the primacy of shari’a.

Article two states that while Islam is the official religion, “followers of other religions are free to exercise their faith and perform their religious rites within the limits of the provisions of law.”

But article three states that “no law can be contrary to the beliefs and provisions of the sacred religion of Islam.” Article 149 says adherence to the tenets of Islam “cannot be amended.”

Two years after the constitution was approved, a Christian convert named Abdul Rahman was sentenced to death for apostasy in a case that caused an uproar. Only after the U.S. and other coalition countries put pressure on Karzai was Rahman allowed to seek asylum abroad.

In 2010, Afghan Christians were again in the spotlight, when authorities arrested 26 Christians after a television station screened footage of converts being baptized, sparking calls in parliament, from Khawasi among others, for their execution. They were eventually released and many fled to India.

Afghanistan is ranked number three this year on the annual Open Doors USA watchlist of the world’s worst persecutors of Christians.

Supporting The Islamic Revolutions Is All About Killing Christians

 
‎11 ‎September ‎2013, ‏‎02:17:35 AM | adminGo to full article
By Theodore Shoebat

The support of the Islamic revolutions in Syria, Libya, and Egypt, is indication as to the Left’s alliance with Muslims to dechristianize the world, and to kill Christians.

Jihadists have just seized control of Maaloula, one of the most ancient villages in Christianity. The Muslims, after advancing over the area, attacked churches and killed Christians to the cries of “Allahu Akbar!” One man recounted:

“They shot and killed people. I heard gunshots and then I saw three bodies lying in the middle of a street in the old quarters of the village”

According to one witness, five Christians were seized and told

 ”Either you convert to Islam, or you will be beheaded.”

A native said that Maaloula  “is a ghost town. Where is President Obama to see what befallen on us?” He is trying to organize an attack on Syria, which will only enable more the rebels to overrun the country and slaughter more Christians, and the Left is just thirsty for the blood of the saints.

Watch a video of this poor woman from Maaloula weeping because of the devastation caused by the Muslim heretics on her village, business, and family, and tell me if you think Obama and the rest of Leftist heretics sincerely care about freedom, and Christian lives:

<iframe width=”440″ height=”325″ src=”http://www.youtube.com/embed/eqvujCuwp2E?feature=player_embedded” frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen></iframe>

There are Christian leaders in Syria already saying that a military intervention will only help the jihadists and be detrimental to the Christians.  Chaldean Catholic Bishop Antoine Audo said

“We heard a lot about democracy and freedom from the U.S. in Iraq, and we see now the results — how the country came to be destroyed … The first to lose were the Christians of Iraq.”

In Egypt the Muslim Brotherhood is already imposing jizya (taxation on non-Muslims) on an immense amount of Christians.  The Muslims are forcing the roughly 15,000 Christian Copts of Dalga village in south Minya province to pay jizya.

Fr. Yunis Shawqi said that “without exception,” the villagers are being imposed with these burdensome taxes. He also added that “some are being expected to pay 200 Egyptian pounds per day, others 500 Egyptian pounds per day…”

There have been instances in which Christians who have not payed the tax had to endure the kidnapping and assaults of their relatives.

Similarly, in Syria a Christian man was given several choices: become Muslim, pay a $70,000 jizya, or be killed along with his family. One Christian in Iraq, named Androus,received this message by phone:

“Because you are infidels, you have to pay jizya … Either you pay jizya, or we will kill you or your son.”

Why would the sinister servants of the devil’s kingdom, be interested in these particular Christian areas? Because these are amongst the most ancient lands of Christian history. Christians in Syria can, without mistake, affirm a direct succession from Christ and the Apostles.

St. Matthew wrote that before the Crucifixion and the Resurrection, Christ’s fame

 ”went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them.” (Matthew 4:24)

St. Luke recounts how churches in Syria were confirmed by the Apostles:

“And Paul chose Silas, and departed, being recommended by the brethren unto the grace of God. And he went through Syria and Cilicia, confirming the churches.” (Acts 15:40-41)

St. Paul writes of how “he  came into the regions of Syria and Cilicia” (Galatians 1:21).

The Faith is being attacked not only theologically, but physically, and the attack is universal.

The heretics want to extinguish Christianity in both the East and the West. Just look at whats happening in the US Air Force, where Christians are being investigated and fired for their views on homosexuality.

In Lackland Air Force Base, a woman commander went against Senior Master Sgt. Phillip Monk because he protested her punishing an instructor for expressing religious disagreement of homosexuality. She ordered Monk to say his opinions on homosexuality, and he was then let go of his position. He stated:

“I was relieved of my position because I don’t agree with my commander’s position on gay marriage … We’ve been told that if you publicly say that homosexuality is wrong, you are in violation of Air Force policy.”

This is a sodomite inquisition, and the sodomites love discrimination against Christians, and they uphold “anti-discrimination” law to conduct their tyranny.

When a discrimination complaint was filed, did the sodomites gather around to support this Christian? Did ant-discrimination laws come into play? No. Instead, Monk had to hear his Miranda Rights and was accused of reporting false statements. The sodomites are too busy harassing Christian bakers, photographers, and pastors, to be helping an overpowered solider.

The accusations against Monk are a court martial offense, he could be completely  uprooted from the military, and its been reported by a local pastor, Steve Branson, that as many as a half a dozen of his Air Force congregants are being persecuted for their Christian views on homosexuality.

This same wretched commander also disapproved of a certain chaplain giving the benediction at her promotion ceremony, as Monk recounts:

“She said she wanted a chaplain but objected to one particular chaplain that she called a bigot because he preached that homosexuality is a sin”

Is it any wonder that the people who are desiring, and doing, persecution in the the West, are helping the persecutors in the Middle East. That is because both the heretic progressives of America, and the heretic Muslims, both aspire to destroy Christianity. Don’t forget what Christ foretold:

“Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. “(Matthew 24:9)

Christians Butchered In Guinea, But There Is Something You Can Do About It

 
‎06 ‎September ‎2013, ‏‎03:25:22 AM | adminGo to full article
By Theodore Shoebat
 

Great havoc and violence has arisen in Guinea, in which a substantial amount of churches have been destroyed, and a immense amount of Christians have been killed. Jihadist provoked violence left ninety-five people dead, and a hundred and thirty wounded.

In Nzérékoré, five churches have been attacked and looted, and the homes of four pastors attacked by Muslim mobs. One priest, Fr. Joseph, recounted the violence:

The two Catholic and Protestant churches have all been ransacked and burned … Almost all the houses and shops belonging to Christians or people affiliated with Christians, have not escaped the fury of attackers.

Within the Catholic area, including the quarters of the nuns and the Presbyter, were looted and set to flames. Moreover, in Beyla, The Center for Youth Development, a conference room, an internet cafe, a primary school and a library, were ravaged and devastated.

Beyla’s regional deputy of health services, Dr. Tolon Loua, was killed during the violence, as Fr. Joseph says:

He was inside of his house when the assailants arrived and set it on fire … Badly burned, he was transported to the hospital where he was later declared dead.

In Moribadou violence lasted for three days, in which about 10 churches were destroyed.

Now, while it is important that we focus on this persecution, more needs to be done than just reading about it. This article is a request for those who are donating money to Rescue Christians, or would like to, to give what you can so that we can help the Christians in Guinea.

Currently we are rescuing and preserving Christians in Pakistan, but we desire greatly to expand into other countries where Christians are suffering. The more people we help, the more money that is needed. So we ask that you give, and we promise that all the money will go directly into helping the persecuted.

Obama Will Advance Islam By Attacking Syria

 
‎28 ‎August ‎2013, ‏‎11:33:30 PM | adminGo to full article
By Theodore Shoebat 

The day after Obama’s reelection was announced, I wrote that Obama will be more reckless in his second term than in his first, in that he will work with NATO, France, and Britain, in attacking Syria, and on how the only one who would gain from this attack will be Turkey, because the Turks, with Assad gone, can more easily revive its former Ottoman empire. Here is what I wrote:

Expect to see Obama’s actions on the Middle East to be reckless, and the cause of chaos. We must expect to see the rise of Turkey following the future fall of Assad thanks to the U.S., Western allies, and NATO. With Assad gone, Turkey will then gradually take power over Syria.

I wrote my concern of America and Nato attacking Syria on the pretext of chemical weapons use back in March, in which I said:

Our primary concern should be that one day our own nation will work with NATO to militarily strike the Assad regime and allow the revolutionaries to prevail. Such an act will not only enable Islamic fundamentalism to further expand, but empower Turkey to commence its much aspired empire–that is–a revived Ottoman empire.

Now these things are coming to pass. We already have the United States, alongside its Nato allies Britain and France, readying for military intervention.

What is also interesting is Israel’s change of stance in regards to Assad’s chemical weapons arsenal. Last year Netanyahu affirmed that he was not concerned about Assad, but was worried about Islamists getting their hands on Syria’s chemical weapons. In the same year, Israel’s defense ministry, Amos Gilad, said that he wasn’t concerned about the chemical weapons as long as Assad had them under control:

There are significant amounts of chemical weapons in Syria, and we have to be ready and prepared if the Syrian regime loses control of its chemical weapons arsenal.. At the moment, they are maintaining control of it.

But now Israel is supporting the intervention, on the basis of a monitored conversation within the Syrian government on the use of chemical weapons. The Israelis affirm that this is proof enough, but they have not acknowledged that the rebels are the ones using chemical weapons on civilians, not Assad. And even if Assad did utilize chemical weaponry, why then should the US and its allies rally up arms? Assad is killing terrorists, and the rebels are slaughtering civilians.

The only people who will win are the Turks, they want Assad gone because he would be a hinderance to their aspirations of becoming a world power and the leading sovereignty in the Muslim world, and ultimately the revived Ottoman empire. The people who will suffer the most, on the other hand, are the Christians.

If America ever decides to send troops on Syrian ground, expect to see American soldiers and government workers beheaded on the internet.

Christian Girl Raped, Beaten, And Sold Into Slavery, Because of Her Faith

 
‎24 ‎August ‎2013, ‏‎08:47:58 PM | adminGo to full article
This is a message from our contact in Pakistan on a Christian girl named Tania Rebecca, who was raped and abused by Muslims in their attempt to force her to convert to Islam.

On 28th April,2012 Tania Rebecca, resident of the village of Daultabad, Tehsil Manawala, District of Shiekhpura was kidnapped  and forcibly  converted to Islam. The aggrieved family luckily traced the kidnappers through a cell phone number.

According to Tania

On the day of the incident, I left home at around 9:00 A.M for Nankana City to my maternal uncle’s home. I was stopped by Rehana who offered to sit in the car and they would drop me to my uncle’s home. I accepted the offer and sat in the car as Rehana is well known to me. when I sat in the Car, I observed that  there were three men in the car, Muhammad Ashraf ( the husband of Rehana ), Rehana’s son, and an unknow driver. When I tried to resist they warned me and threatened me that if I would make a noise they  would kill me . Then Rehana informed me that we are taking you to Multan for the delivery of their relative . Afterwards  they put toxic powder in my eyes and put black scraf on my eyes and started beating me. However I realized that they have kidnapped me. They informed my family that they are taking me to Multan for a delivery .

Rehana and Ashraf took me to Dera Ghazi Khan and handed me over  to Muhammad Zafar . I was completely out of my mind and unable to understand the situation. Rehana and Ashraf left the place, then Muhammad Zafar sexually harassed me. Even his family members were forcing me to convert  to Islam. I totally refused to Embrace Islam. Later on I was sent to Muhammad Ismael, aged 50 – and Khadim Hussain, aged 45, the resident of Nawan Janoobi Dera Ghazi Khan. I was completely unaware of my sale and purchase. Both of them raped me again and again.

During this time the family of Tania was doing their best to track their daughter. They were lucky to track Muhammad Zafar through his cell phone SIM.

But when Robert (Brother of Tania) and Shafaqat Masih went to Dera Ghazi Khan to find Tania, Muhammad Zafar refused to tell anything about her. However with the intervention of the ex-mayor of Dera Ghazi Khan, Muhammad Khan Khachela, they were able to get the  exact location of Tania. Muhammad Zafar Informed the police and Muhammad Khan Khachela that they have paid 85,000 rupees (PKR) for Tania. Muhammad Zafar said that if they are able to pay us 95,000 PKR we are ready to set Tania free.  Muhammad Zafar also told that presently she is in the custody of Khadim Hussain and Ismael .

Tania’s Mother immediately gave their house on lease for 200,000 PKR . On 1st June, 2012, Robert (Brother of Tania) and Shafaqat Masih went to Dera Ghazi Khan, there they came to know that Khadim Hussian and Ismael had sold her to Atta Muhammad and Rub Nawaz. After knowing this, ex-mayor Muhammad Khan Khachela called Atta Muhammad and Rub Nawaz to bring the girl. Firstly, they did not agree to return the girl but later on they agreed to return the girl. After the Long struggle Tania Rebecca was recovered by the family after paying the amount of 95,000 PKR .

A prejudiced action was shown by the police that there was an FIR (First Information Registered) against the culprits but police did not arrest them. And Still Tania and her family are receiving threats from these culprits as well as from the police.  Unknown people visited the house of Tania’s parents twice to get Tania Back.

When she was recovered, one Pakistani NGO started claiming in the international community that they are helping this persecuted girl, whereas her experience with the NGO is bitter. Which  we will definitely unveil in the Interview of her soon.

During a counseling class with Tania we found that she was very much ill-treated physically and mentally, you cannot even imagine the torture suffered by Tania. The abductors treated her barbarically, using her butt hole to sexually please themselves. We have immediately arranged her surgery and she will be recovered soon. But it is shameful for A Human rights and Christian Rights Organization who only used her to get funds and benefits. We would request the international community to look  in such matters closely and support the victims directly rather than giving money for such people and Organizations who use God’s Money for their Luxury life-style.

White House Spokesman Makes A Joke About Christian Persecution In Egypt

 
‎23 ‎August ‎2013, ‏‎06:52:27 AM | adminGo to full article
This joking about the persecuted not only shows the coldness of the US government, but also the hatred for Christians that the Obama administration harbors. From The Daily Caller

The White House’s deputy press secretary today downplayed Muslim attacks on Christians in Egypt, joking about the savagery  that has left at least six Christians dead.

Press secretary Josh Earnest was asked by Fox News’ correspondent, Ed Henry, if President Barack Obama has a “red line” beyond which he would act against Muslim attacks on Egyptian Christians.

“Well, I didn’t bring my red pen out with me today,” Earnest joked.

After making his joke, Earnest said the administration is “outraged… and concerned” about the Muslim attacks on almost 100 churches, monasteries, orphanages and other marked Christian sites. Many Christians’ shops and homes have also been looted and burned by mobs.

But Earnest didn’t name or criticize the attackers, even though he did charge the military with perpetrating “violence… against peaceful protestors.”

“I can tell you that we have condemned in unambiguous terms all the violence that’s has been perpetrated there in Egypt,” he said.

“We have been concerned and condemned the violence that has been perpetrated by the government against peaceful protestors, and we’re just as outraged and just as concerned about reports that Christian churches have been targeted,” he said.

Muslims In Egypt: Christians Must Be Wiped Out

 
‎21 ‎August ‎2013, ‏‎05:17:52 AM | adminGo to full article
By Theodore Shoebat
 

I was constantly verbally abused for being a Christian. Even on the public buses, they would insult me for being Christian, and accused us of being infidels, and that we as Christian people deserve to be wiped off the face of this country, because they believe that we do not deserve to live in this country.

These are the words of Christian Copt from a recent interview on the current sufferings of the Egyptian Christians.

Pogroms have been done by the Muslim Brotherhood against Copts, calling for their deaths and the destruction of their churches. One Brotherhood statement justifies the razing of sanctuaries, writing:

The Pope of the Church is involved in the removal of the first elected Islamist president.

The Pope of the Church alleges Islamic Sharia is backwards, stubborn, and reactionary.

The Pope of the Church sponsors Black Bloc groups to create chaos, pursue banditry, and siege and storm mosques.

The Church mobilizes the Copts in June 30 demonstrations to topple the Islamist president.

The Pope of the Church objects to the articles of Islamic identity and withdraws from the Constituent Assembly.

The Pope of the Church was the first to respond to Al-Sisi’s call to authorize the killing of Muslims and the outcome of the authorization was more than 500 dead today.

The Pope of the Church sends a memo to the current commission to cancel the articles of Sharia.

After all this people ask why they burn the churches.

Here is a recent video of a patriarch orthodox church attacked by the Muslims:

 

Nina Shea gives a myriad of the names of the churches ransacked by the jihadists:

The litany of attacks is long: St. George Church, St. Mary’s Church, Good Shepherd’s Church, the Pentecostal Church, in Minya; St. Therese Church, Church of the Reformation, Church of the Apostle, Holy Revival Church, St. John’s Church, in Assiut; Church of the Virgin Mary in Cairo, St. Damiana Church, the Evangelical Church, and Joseph’s Church, in Fayoum; Church of the Archangel Michael, St. Saviors Anglican Church, the Greek Orthodox and Franciscan churches, in Suez; Fr. Maximus Church and St. George’s Church, in Alexandria

This is a repeat of history, since great tyrants for the Muslim faith ruled over Egypt. By learning from history we can know that a major massacre of the Copts is inevitable. Al-Hakim, a past tyrant who believed himself to be Allah reincarnate, and was called an antichrist by the Christians, massacred many of the faithful; he burned down the Egyptian city of Babylon for its Christianity, beheaded saints, seized the property of the followers of Christ and tore down thirty thousand churches. He forced Christians to wear a huge cross around their necks, Jews to put a round piece of wood around theirs, outlawed Christian holidays and put to the flame any cross discovered. (1)

Years later, under a different ruler, a man named Nekam denied Christ to preserve himself, but once guilt seeped into his heart, and he realized that “whosoever will save his life shall lose it”, *Matthew 16:25* he confronted tyranny to its face, threw away his Muslim garbs and wore Christian dress, and openly proclaimed Christ. He was arrest and sentenced to death, and when his father came to visit and convince him to leave his zealotry, he had already professed who is Redeemer was, and was beheaded. (2)

The patriarch of Egypt in the early thirteenth century, Nicholas, had this to say on the persecution occurring in a letter to Pope Honorius in Rome:

“If any Christian church from any accident happens to fall, we dare not rebuild it; and for these fourteen years past each Christian in Egypt is compelled to pay a [Jizya] tax of one bezant and fourteen karabbas; and if he be poor, he is committed to prison and not set at liberty until he have paid the whole sum. There are so many Christians in this country that the Sultan derives from them a yearly revenue of one hundred thousand golden bezants. What further shall I say when Christians are employed for every unfit and sordid work, and are even compelled to clean the streets of the city?” (3)

On one afternoon of June in 1320, mosques throughout Egypt were observing the Friday prayers, and in multiple congregations men arose and cried out “God [Allah] is great! God is great! O my brethren, let us go forth and destroy the churches!” In Cairo the same rallying cry was heard in three places at the same moment. It was a calculated plot, the conspirators understood the easily shaken conscious of the masses, and it worked sufficiently to rouse the mob to violence.

The attacked the church of Zehry, and not one stone of the santurary was left upon another. They then raided and ruined the church of St. Mena in the Hamra quarter. The mob broke through the Church of the Maiden, took out every nun and stripped them all naked, plundered the church of its valuables and then set it on fire. The same rabble destroyed another 56 churches and countless convents. A crowed rushed to the sultan and screamed “Let there be no faith except that of Islam! God protect the faith of Mohammad! O thou commander of the faithful, help us against the infidels. No favour to the Christians!”

The sultan unwillingly acquiesced to the wants of the masses just as Pilot had done, and the crowed was ecstatic at such freedom given to them. The details of the violence is left only to our imagination, but we know that they ferociously reduced the Christians into servility, with any Christian caught wearing a white turban or riding a horse swiftly put to death. (4)

This mob violence continued on for years. One Christian was tortured for a whole week and then beheaded for denouncing the wickedness and anarchy of the Muslims. Churches were frequently leveled to the ground and Christian tombs were torn open and the bodies burnt. One multitude of jihadists even went so far as to make a large to throw Christian in. (5) One Christian named Gabriel was seized, and under the order of the sultan, tortured and forced to parade naked through the streets as an official screamed, “Thus shall it be done to every Christian in the employ of the Sultan.”

This type of violence is only going to occur again, but this era of persecution will be the ultimate one, unlike the past oppression. A holocaust of the Copts is coming, it is inexorable. But there is a great hope, for the prophet Isaiah prophesied:

In that day shall there be an altar to the LORD in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar at the border thereof to the LORD. And it shall be for a sign and for a witness unto the LORD of hosts in the land of Egypt: for they shall cry unto the LORD because of the oppressors, and he shall send them a saviour, and a great one, and he shall deliver them. (Isaiah 19:19-20)

From CBN:

Converting to Christianity without government permission could soon be a crime in one state in India.

Morning Star News reports the legislature in Madhya Pradesh approved the bill this month and it awaits the governor’s signature.

The state is ruled by the BJP political party, a Hindu nationalist group.

The new legislation requires pastors and potential converts to notify government officials 30 days in advance.

Those failing to do so face a fine and up to three years in jail.

Christians in the state have written the governor a letter urging him not to sign the bill.

“They have threatened to cut our throats,” Says Syrian Christian

 
‎21 ‎August ‎2013, ‏‎03:59:40 AM | adminGo to full article
From Slobodan Lekic (thanks to AINA):

Syrian rebels, who are mostly Sunni Muslims, have repeatedly shelled Christian neighborhoods in the city, including Kasaa, with its wide avenues, apartment blocks and leafy parks. The opposition Free Syrian Army claims it strikes only government targets, but constant shelling of the civilian quarter suggests otherwise.

Over the past year, many Christians have fled the neighborhood, moving to other areas of the capital or into neighboring Lebanon. Some who remain say they fear the rebels are aiming to achieve “ethnic cleansing” — the policy of eliminating unwanted ethnic or religious groups by terror that gained international notoriety during the Bosnian war 20 years ago.
Many Syrian Christians say they fear becoming victims of the same kind of targeted anti-Christian violence that resulted from the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003. This persecution, known here as the “American solution,” caused a massive exodus — of the 1.5 million Christians who lived in Iraq in 2000, less than 300,000 remain today.

“The terrorists are trying to push the Christians out of this area,” said Isan Bahri, the 44-year-old owner of a mechanical shop in the Kasaa district of eastern Damascus that the rebels have been trying to capture. “They are not shooting at the army, they are intentionally aiming for civilians.”

The attacks fit an emerging pattern where fighters of the Free Syrian Army, and other jihadist elements, have targeted civilian members of Syria’s various minority groups — primarily Alawites who traditionally supported the government of President Bashar al-Assad, himself an Alawite. But other groups, including the Kurds, Druze and Christians, who together with the Alawites make up a quarter of Syria’s 22.5 million people, are also seen as supportive of the secular government and therefore viewed as enemies. This week, some 30,000 Syrian Kurds fled into Iraq’s Kurdistan region saying they were being killed by jihadists targeting the minority.

What appears to be a deliberate campaign against these groups poses serious dilemmas for the Obama administration and European nations such as Britain and France, which have planned to support the pro-democracy forces by providing advanced weaponry. They are already grappling with the problem of how to ensure that those arms will not end up in the hands of Jabhat al-Nusra — the al-Qaida-affiliated group that emerged as the most effective and capable of the rebel forces — and the increasing attacks on minorities by insurgents creates an additional quandary.

Although many members of Syria’s ethnic and sectarian groups are in fact secular, approximately three-quarters of the population is nominally comprised of Sunni Muslims. Alawites make up about 11 percent, Christians of various denominations — including Greek Orthodox, Syriac Orthodox, Maronite, Syrian Catholic, Roman Catholic and Greek Catholic — another 10 percent, and the Druze and Shiite contribute 3 percent and 2 percent, respectively, to the total.

At the start of Syria’s troubles in March 2011 many members of the minorities, including Alawites, supported the calls for reform and more political freedoms. But as the conflict intensified, opposition ranks became more and more dominated by radicalized members of Syria’s Sunni majority and jihadist fighters who started joining the rebellion in large numbers.
Today, the conflict has morphed into a full-fledged civil war in which more than 100,000 people have perished. The most capable units on the rebel side — those spearheading the fight against the secular government — are composed of Islamist militants, many of whom fought U.S. forces in Iraq. The militants now accuse Christians of being supporters of Assad’s regime.

“They have threatened to cut our throats,” said Bahri, a Roman Catholic. “I love my country, but if it means having the terrorists slaughter me, my wife and our two boys, I’d rather escape to Lebanon.”
These ancient Christian communities, some of the oldest in the world, have generally been protected by successive Syrian governments, including Assad’s. But that security was lost when rebel factions began mounting increasingly ferocious attacks on them throughout the country.

On Aug. 17, rebel gunmen shot dead 11 Christians and wounded three more in central Syria, eyewitnesses and human rights activists said. In April, two bishops were abducted in rebel-held areas and an Italian Jesuit priest, Father Paolo Dall’Oglio, went missing last month while on a trip to the rebel-held northeastern city of Raqqa.

Large numbers of other minorities also have suffered at the hands of rebels belonging to al-Nusrah. This week, some 30,000 Kurds fled across Syria’s northeastern border into Iraq to escape clashes between the radicals and Kurdish militias.

When the insurgents occupied the strategic central town of Qusair in 2012, about 7,000 Catholics were forced out and their homes were looted, said Fadia Laham, mother superior of a convent north of Damascus belonging to the Greek Catholic Order of Unity of Antioch.

Another 200,000 Christians have fled the northern city of Aleppo, she said. Many moved to Damascus, Lebanon, or some Western countries where Syria’s Christians tend to integrate easier than Muslims.

“People who are willing to stay with the status quo and who support a secular Syria under Assad’s rule will have problems with the Free Syrian Army, no questions about that,” said Rami Khouri, director of a policy institute at the American University of Beirut.

Laham said the rebels had committed “awful acts” against Christians, including beheadings, rapes and murders of pregnant women.

“The aim of these barbarian acts is to foster sectarian hatreds and so destabilize Syria,” she said, explaining that although the Christians do not support Assad’s government, they do support the Syrian state and the country’s unity.

Almost all of the 50,000 Christians in the conflict-torn city of Homs fled violence and persecution by “fanatics” with links to al-Qaida, the Catholic News Agency reported. And the Catholic charity Aid to the Church in Need said al-Qaida-linked militant groups’ were conducting “ongoing ethnic cleansing” of Christians in Syria’s central region.

“The U.S. has been deceiving us that the death of Osama bin Laden meant the death of al-Qaida,” said Mata el-Khouri, a bishop of the Syrian Orthodox Church. “They are more active now than ever before. As to what they would do to the Christians (if they came to power), the answer is clear.”

Muslim Brotherhood Does Pogroms Against Christians In Egypt

 
‎21 ‎August ‎2013, ‏‎03:54:23 AM | adminGo to full article
From Nina Shea of National Review:

 

Violent aggression by Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamists, including those sympathetic to al-Qaeda, continues to be directed at one of the world’s oldest Christian communities, following the military’s break up last week of Brotherhood sit-ins. The Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party has been inciting the anti-Christian pogroms on its web and Facebook pages. One such page, posted on August 14, lists a bill of particulars against the Christian Coptic minority, blaming it, and only it, for the military’s crackdown against the Brotherhood, alleging that the Church has declared a “war against Islam and Muslims.” It concludes with the threat, “For every action there is a reaction.” This builds on statements in the article “The Military Republic of [Coptic Pope] Tawadros,” carried on the MB website in July, about the Coptic Church wanting to “humiliate” Muslims and eradicate Islam.

The litany of attacks is long: St. George Church, St. Mary’s Church, Good Shepherd’s Church, the Pentecostal Church, in Minya; St. Therese Church, Church of the Reformation, Church of the Apostle, Holy Revival Church, St. John’s Church, in Assiut; Church of the Virgin Mary in Cairo, St. Damiana Church, the Evangelical Church, and Joseph’s Church, in Fayoum; Church of the Archangel Michael, St. Saviors Anglican Church, the Greek Orthodox and Franciscan churches, in Suez; Fr. Maximus Church and St. George’s Church, in Alexandria. . .

As of Sunday night, some 58 churches, as well as several convents, monasteries, and schools, dozens of Christian homes and businesses, even the YMCA, havebeen documented as looted and burned or subject to other destruction by Islamist rioters. The Coptic Pope remains in hiding and many Sunday services did not take place as Christian worshipers stayed home, fearing for their lives. A dozen or so Christians have been attacked and killed for being Christian so far.

For the first time in 1,600 years, Sunday prayers were canceled at the Orthodox Monastery of the Virgin Mary and Priest Ibram in Degla, south of Minya, because the three churches there were destroyed by the mob. In Cairo, Franciscan nuns watched as the cross over the gate to their school was torn down and replaced by an al-Qaeda flag and the school itself torched; Sister Manal, the principal, reported that three nuns were then marched through the streets as prisoners of war, as neighborhood mobs “hurled abuse” at them along the way.

At Least Nine Churches Torched In

 
‎20 ‎August ‎2013, ‏‎04:36:31 AM | adminGo to full article
The Guardian

 

Egypt‘s Coptic Christians say fresh attacks have been carried out against churches in at least four parts of the country and that tensions between the majority Sunni Muslims and minority Christian sects are higher than for many decades.

Christian leaders have blamed supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood for the attacks, which are believed to have led to several deaths, including that of a teenage girl who was reportedly leaving Bible class in Cairo when she was shot dead. At least nine churches nationwide have been torched since early Wednesday. Community leaders say the number of arson attacks could be as high as 20. Three of the attacks are confirmed to have taken place in central Egypt.

The Coptic sect has largely remained staunchly behind the interim military-led government that ousted President Mohammed Morsi, a senior Brotherhood figure, six weeks ago. Coptics had vehemently opposed the Brotherhood’s troubled year in office, railing against many decisions the Morsi government made, which were deemed by many Christians to be in favour of hardline Islamists.

Tensions between the Brotherhood and Christians has steadily risen since the coup on 3 July. Brotherhood leaders have acknowledged a divide between the sects, but said it was rooted in politics rather than theology.

“I don’t dislike them as a sect or as a people. To the contrary,” a senior Brotherhood figure told the Guardian in Cairo earlier this month. “Our concern is that they have blindly backed a military and an old guard who has seized from us our legitimate rights. Were this to have happened to them, they would have been the loudest to complain.”

Coptic voices in Egypt and across the large Egyptian disapora condemned the violence. In Cairo, the Maspero Youth Union rights group accused the Brotherhood movement of “waging a war of retaliation”.

Christians in Egypt have long felt a deep sense of persecution, which was amplified during the brief period of Brotherhood rule. The spike in attacks is being viewed through the prism of ancient unresolved grievances, rather than recent reprisals.

Accounting for roughly 10% of Egypt’s 84 million citizens, the Copts represent the largest Christian community in the Middle East.

Their fate has long been of interest to Europe and the US. On Friday, two United Nations special advisers expressed serious concern over violence against Christian churches and institutions.

Adama Dieng, the UN special adviser on the prevention of genocide, and Jennifer Welsh, special adviser on the responsibility to protect, said they noted “with alarm that a number of Christian churches and institutions have been targeted, including in the provinces of Assiut, Fayoum, Minya and Sohag, reportedly in retaliation to the incidents in Cairo”.

“We urge all Egyptians to act responsibly during these difficult moments and refrain from using violence to express their grievances, in particular by targeting religious minorities and institutions, or by using language and inciting behaviours that may escalate tensions. We call all political and social actors to abandon strategies of confrontation.”

 

More Christian Converts Arrested in Tehran and Isfahan

 
‎20 ‎August ‎2013, ‏‎04:27:41 AM | adminGo to full article
International Campaign For Human Rights In Iran: 

Several individuals were arrested during a raid on a house church in Western Tehran late last week, a source informed about the recent arrests of Christian converts in Tehran told the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran. Four of the detainees are Parham Farazmand, Sara Sardsirian, Sedigheh Kiani, and Mona Fazli.

“On Friday, August 9, security forces raided this house church in Tehran, beat, abused, and threatened individuals who were engaged in weekly worship, searched the premises and cell phones and other personal items of the attendees, and transferred five Christian converts, including Parham Farazmand, Sedigheh Kiani, Sara Sardsirian, and Mona Fazli, to an unknown location,” the source told the Campaign.

The source added that the forces were equipped with two-way radios and handguns and used violence against the Christian citizens. In addition to arresting the above-mentioned individuals, the source added, the forces confiscated the identification cards of other individuals present and several other items from the premises. The location and conditions of the detainees are not yet known.

Last week, news websites reported arrests of Sedigheh Amirkhani, Mahnaz Rafiee, and Mohammad Reza Peymani, three Christian converts in Isfahan. The human rights activist told the Campaign that repeated inquires by the detainees’ families to Iranian police and judicial authorities have been fruitless. Only one of the detainees, Sedigheh Amirkhani, has been able to make a telephone call to her family to inform them of her health and her detention and interrogation inside a security organization. “Last week, JARAS website published a note by Farshid Fathi, an imprisoned Christian pastor, who spoke of his torture during his detention inside security detention centers, reporting insults, degradation, slander, and threats during his detention in solitary confinement,” said the source. Farshid Fathi, a Christian citizen, is currently serving a six-year prison sentence inside Evin Prison.

Pressure on Christian converts has increased in recent years. After warnings by Islamic Republic leaders, Christian house churches have been growing at an accelerated pace, and over recent months security forces have attacked, persecuted, and arrested many Christian converts in Khuzestan, Tehran, Fars, and Isfahan provinces.

According to reports, the conditions of imprisoned Iranian pastor Saeed Abedini in Evin Prison are not known, and Branch 26 of Tehran Revolutionary Court recently sentenced Mostafa (Mohammad Hadi) Bordbar, a Christian convert, to 10 years in prison.

In late spring of this year, Tehran’s oldest Persian-language Protestant church, Central Assembly of God, was shut down under pressure by Intelligence Ministry forces.

At the time, Mansour Borji, the spokesperson for the Article 18 initiative of the United Council of Iranian Churches (Hamgaam) and an advocate for Iranian Christians, told the Campaign about the reasons the church and its leaders have been targeted for harassment, “It’s because this church’s services are held in the Persian language and they don’t want non-Christians to participate in them. They are afraid that the number of Christian converts will grow. Of course, before the [1979] Revolution, this Church held its services in Persian, because many Christians are not well versed in the Armenian language. After the Revolution, there was pressure at different times to shut down the Persian-language churches and the pressure has intensified over recent years. Most Persian-language churches have been slowly closed down over recent years. Churches in Mashhad, Western and Eastern Azerbaijan, Arak, Shiraz, and Ahvaz were all shut down. This church of the Assemblies of God has the largest congregation of all Persian-language churches and is more than half a century old.”

In January, the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran published a comprehensive reportabout the persecution, detention, and prison sentences of Christian converts in Iran over the past several years.

Christians In America Need To Wake Up

 
‎20 ‎August ‎2013, ‏‎04:20:27 AM | adminGo to full article
From PJ Media:

When the Communist Party took control of China in 1949 under Mao Zedong, Christians were forced underground or forced to submit to Party control. Those that refused were interrogated, arrested, tortured, imprisoned or even killed. Samuel Lamb became one of the best known of these persecuted church leaders.

Lamb first tasted prison in 1955, when he was sentenced to serve 18 months. He was imprisoned again in 1958, this time receiving a 20-year sentence. Part of his sentence was spent serving forced labor in coal mines, where working conditions were deplorable and many prisoners died. Lamb would later talk about how God preserved his life even in the midst of such dangerous work.

For most American Christians, Lamb’s experience lays so far outside our own that it can be hard to perceive as modern. Living as we do in a land of relative religious liberty, we understand persecution only as an intellectual concept. It lurks in the depths of church history, or haunts the horizon of a distant future glimpsed through biblical prophecy. The idea of facing persecution today, in present America, seems unthinkable at first consideration. After all, we’ve spent our whole lives driving past a church on every corner, swearing oaths on copies of the Bible, and covering our hearts while swooning over the Land of the Free.

Be that as it may, as the culture makes radical shifts in the 21st century, the price of Christian confession begins to rise. If certain coalitions have their way, adherence to the Christian faith will be regulated out of public existence. Oh, the church buildings may stand, and 501(c)3s operating in the name of Christ may remain. But biblical Christianity taught without compromise will be relegated to underground enclaves like those formed under the Communist Chinese.

The shameless media in America cares more about Muslim Brotherhood “demonstrators” being killed and injured, than Christian churches being burnt and devastated by the very same Muslim Brotherhood.

This is why we must become the media.

Here is a video of the Church of Bishop Moussa razed in flames:

Insider In Egypt: Attack On Christians “nothing less than a furious satanic attack”

 
‎17 ‎August ‎2013, ‏‎04:24:35 AM | adminGo to full article
From The CP:

The recent barrage of attacks on Christians in Egypt, including on members and churches of the nation’s Coptic denomination, are of a scale unseen in modern times and being described as satanic, according to sources living in the country. The persecution watchdog group, Open Doors USA, says Egypt is engulfed in a furnace of fire and Christians are taking on the brunt force of the attacks.

“The attack against the Christians of Egypt is nothing less than a furious satanic attack that aims at terrorizing Christians, imprisoning them at their homes helplessly with no guarantee of protection so their love, peace, hope and testimony may be neutralized,” stated an anonymous Christian leader, whose name is being withheld for security reasons, in a commentary obtained by The Christian Post.

“We, Christians of Egypt, are facing a severe time of persecution and suffering that we may have not witnessed since the Roman times!” the source explained.

Thursday evening, the overall picture coming out of Egypt from news reports was dire. Egypt’s health ministry said that at least 580 people were killed and more than 4,000 injured amidst clashes involving security forces and former President Mohammad Morsi supporters.

Reporter: “monumental attack — unprecedented in modern times — on churches throughout Egypt”

 
‎17 ‎August ‎2013, ‏‎04:14:27 AM | adminGo to full article
From Gary Lane:

What do Muslim Brotherhood members do when Egyptian Security Forces launch a forewarned operation to clear them from Cairo tent cities? Attack Christians. That’s right.

Morsi supporters responded with a monumental attack–unprecedented in modern times–on churches throughout Egypt. The torching and destruction of churches occured within six hours of the start of the military crackdown.

Many Muslims opposed the violent response against Christians. Some Salafists urged the Brotherhood to halt the attacks, and even some Muslims in Upper Egypt reportedly helped Christians defend churches.

One destroyed church in Upper Egypt was built in the fourth century.

Here’s the list of burned churches and buildings:

  • Church of the Virgin Mary and Anba Abram of the Copts Orthodox. the village of Daljah, the district of Deir Mawas, Minya province. Burning and demolishing the church.

  • The Church of St. Mina of the Coptic Orthodox. The neighborhood of Abu Hilal Kebly Minya province. Burning the church.

  • St. George Church. Coptic Orthodox archbishopric land, Sohag province. Burning the church.

Another Islamic Cannibalism Case Discovered

 
‎13 ‎August ‎2013, ‏‎04:40:07 AM | adminGo to full article
By Theodore Shoebat

So it looks like our predictions on Islamic cannibalism are becoming clearer and clearer. Here is a testimony from Isiaku, a member of Boko Haram:

I can’t recall the number of people I have killed. I don’t use gun most times. We usually use guns to shoot people on the leg. If we ask a victim: “Will you become a Muslim or not? And he or she refuses, we slaughter the victim like a goat. And after killing the victim, we collect his or her blood in a very small cup and then drink it. After drinking the blood, the victim’s ghost could not hunt us in dreams. That is what our leaders told us. And indeed, once we taste the blood of people we kill, we will not see them in our dreams.

Sometimes, when we don’t feel like drinking the blood from the cup, we used our fingers to touch the victim’s blood and taste it. It will still prevent ghost of victim from hunting us in dreams.

We used to kill Christians because we believe that by killing them, we will enter heaven at death. Our leaders used a Quranic passage that seems to support our action (Recites some Quranic lines). In interpretation, the passage says: “O you believers, you should not be friendly with your enemies.” ‘Believers’ here means we, the Muslims and ‘enemies’ are the Christians.

He said that to decapitate a Christian will bring salvation, therefore this also constitutes as human sacrifice, very similar to what is happening in Syria, where ritualistic blood letting is being done on Christians.  

In fact, as far back as 1989, the Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, in his cause against religious tolerance, warned the French people on Islam’s belief that decapitating Christians brings one into heaven.

 

 

Look at the Western world now, they rejected the Archbishop’s prudence and we are suffering because our toleration.

Coptic girl shot in Cairo

 
‎13 ‎August ‎2013, ‏‎04:18:24 AM | adminGo to full article
From Christian Today:

Morning Star News is reporting that a Coptic Christian girl walking home from a Bible class at her church was shot and killed last week in Cairo by an unidentified gunman, human rights activists said on Friday, August 9, 2013.

Amid a near-constant din of threats and scattered attacks against the Christian population in Egypt by militant political Islamists, the rights representatives said 10-year-old Jessica Boulous of the Ain Shams section of Cairo was killed early Tuesday evening (Aug. 6) while walking from the Ahmed Esmat Street Evangelical Church through a market to her home with her Sunday school teacher.

According to the Middle East Correspondent for the news service, the teacher turned to buy an item at a market stall only to turn back and find Jessica lying in the dirt in a puddle of blood, rights activists said. A Muslim shopkeeper who knew Jessica saw her fall to the ground and ran to her side. He took off his shirt, wrapped it around her motionless body and rushed her to a hospital, but she was already dead.

A single bullet had passed through her chest and heart, killing her instantly, witnesses said.

Nasr Allah Zakaria, Jessica’s uncle, said the killing has devastated the girl’s family.

“I just can’t believe she is gone,” Zakaria said. “She was such a sweet little girl. She was like a daughter to me. I can’t believe she is gone.”

The story added that no one has claimed responsibility for the killing. Zakaria, pastor of an evangelical church in Egypt, said he didn’t know for sure if the shooting was religiously motivated but quickly added that violence against Christians “seems to be normal” in Egypt now.

“Violence or intimidation against Christians has become almost a daily occurrence in most parts of Egypt,” continued the Middle East Correspondent. “In the aftermath of the protests that led to the removal of Mohamed Morsi as president, militant supporters of Morsi have publically scapegoated the Coptic Christian minority for the Islamic Brotherhood-backed president’s fall from power.

“Many have called for revenge against Christians. Less than 12 hours after the Egyptian military announced that it had expelled Morsi from office, reports of attacks against Christians by Morsi supporters began.

“After numerous attacks for about a week and a half, there was a relative lull in the violence. But at the end of July, the pace picked up once more. The attacks were inspired, human rights activists said, by a near-constant stream of vitriol from Islamic leaders calling for retribution against the Copts.”

The journalist went on to say that members of the Muslim Brotherhood on Aug. 2 distributed flyer threatening to attack church buildings and police stations in Minya in Upper Egypt, according to local residents. Muslim Brotherhood leaders have stated that the attacks against the Christians will not stop until Morsi has returned to power. The new wave of attacks has included drive-by-shootings, kidnappings, attacks on church buildings and Christian-owned property and now two lethal shootings.

On the same day Jessica was killed, masked gunmen burst into a grocery store in Jazeerat Al Khazendara village in Souhag and attacked a Coptic Christian family according to the rights activists. During the kidnapping attempt, Milad Ebeed was abducted and his father, mother and brother were all shot. His father, Sadek Ebeed, 75, died at the store. The others sustained serious, but not life-threatening wounds.

Milad Ebeed was later released after a ransom was paid, the rights activists said.

Along with the shootings, the towns of Minya and Assuit have been the sites of repeated attacks against Christians, which make up about 10 percent of Egypt’s predominantly Sunni Muslim population. For the past two weeks, unidentified vandals have painted graffiti on church buildings and Christian-owned homes and businesses in Assuit declaring, “Egypt is Muslim, not Christian.”

According to the story, “At the same time, Islamists have been roaming Christian areas of Assuit handing out anti-Christian flyers and intimidating any Coptic business owner who keeps his store open, rights activists said.

“On Saturday (Aug. 3), roughly 20 people were injured and five Coptic-owned homes were destroyed along with several Coptic-owned businesses in the village of Al-Sharqiya in Minya Governorate when a political dispute at a Coptic-owned café turned ugly. A fight that started over changing the channel from a news program quickly led to Islamist mobs rampaging through the village with clubs, swords and Molotov cocktails, according to human rights activists.”

Mina Thabet, spokesman of the Maspero Students Union, said things could get worse in Minya.

“For the past few days, we have had many instances of attacks against Copts,” Thabet said. “Threats are widespread. In the Minya Governorate, I think it will be hard for the next few days.”

In a statement released Wednesday (Aug. 7), the Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights and 15 other human rights organizations condemned Islamist incitement to violence and the government’s lack of will to stop it.

“These organizations strongly condemn the rhetoric employed by leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood and their allies, which includes clear incitement to violence and religious hatred in order to achieve political gains, regardless of the grave repercussions of such rhetoric for peace in Egypt,” the statement read.

The statement further denounced negligence of the state to protect Christians, to confront sectarian attacks and to hold assailants in several governorates responsible.

“This negligence reveals that the pattern of impunity which spread during the Mubarak era and remained in place throughout the rule of the Muslim Brotherhood continues to this day, even after both of these regimes were overthrown,” the organizations stated.

The Morning Star News story stated that Zakara said that, strangely, Jessica, an only child, was concerned about the violence and seemed to have a premonition of her death. She watched protests on television and urged her parents to get involved, but at the same time she was afraid enough for her safety that she asked her Sunday school teacher to escort her home from Bible school.

“She said she didn’t feel safe,” Zakaria said. “She asked her mother and father, ‘What if I am at a protest and I got shot in the chest? What would happen to me?’”

10,000 Muslims March In Coptic Area Screaming: “Islamic, Islamic, despite the Christians.”

 
‎13 ‎August ‎2013, ‏‎04:10:22 AM | adminGo to full article
From the AP (thanks to The Las Vegas Sun):

It was nighttime and 10,000 Islamists were marching down the most heavily Christian street in this ancient Egyptian city, chanting “Islamic, Islamic, despite the Christians.” A half-dozen kids were spray-painting “Boycott the Christians” on walls, supervised by an adult.

While Islamists are on the defensive in Cairo following the military coup that ousted President Mohammed Morsi, in Assiut and elsewhere in Egypt’s deep south they are waging a stepped-up hate campaign, claiming the country’s Christian minority somehow engineered Morsi’s downfall.

“Tawadros is a dog,” says a spray-painted insult, referring to Pope Tawadros II, patriarch of the Copts, as Egypt’s Christians are called. Christian homes, stores and places of worship have been marked with large painted crosses.

The hostility led a coalition of 16 Egyptian rights groups to warn on Wednesday of a wave of violence to come, and to demand that the post-coup authorities protect the Christians who are 10 percent of the population, and suffer chronic discrimination.

Nile-side Assiut, a city of one million people 400 kilometers (250 miles) south of Cairo, dates back to the pharaohs. The New Testament says Mary, Joseph and the infant Jesus passed through as they fled the infanticidal King Herod. Today, its Christian fears are compounded by the failure of authorities to curb the graffiti-spraying and the Islamists’ demonstrations, which have gone on almost nightly since the July 3 coup that ousted Morsi.

“They (the Islamists) will not stop as long as they are left to do as they please without fear of accountability,” said Hossam Nabil, 38, who owns a jewelry store on Youssry Ragheb St. where the demonstration passed on Tuesday night. “They are many and one day they will trash our stores.”

Like other Christians with stores on the street, Nabil shuttered his establishment until the protesters had passed. “They (the marchers) run their index finger across their throats to suggest they will slaughter us, or scream Morsi’s name in our faces,” he said.

A young couple arrived to shop while scores of marchers were still on the street. They froze in fear, the husband shielding his wife with his body.

Families living in apartment blocks above the stores stayed home, shutting windows and staying off balconies. Those outdoors kept their distance from the march.

Assiut’s Islamists are strong because local authority is weak and religion is powerful in a region where poverty is widespread and envy of the relatively high number of well-to-do Christians runs high.

As for the graffiti, acting provincial governor Gamal Adam told The Associated Press the authorities have given up on washing it away because it quickly reappears. He also said municipal cleaners might be roughed up if caught in the act by Islamists.

For the 40 percent of Assiut people who are Christian, life has changed radically. They find their apartment blocks disfigured by painted crosses with a red X painted over them. They stay at home at night. Churches have cancelled afternoon activities. Some of the wealthy have left town.

“We had never experienced the kind of persecution we suffer now. We are insulted every day,” said Nevine Kamal, a 40-year-old Christian pharmacist and mother of two teenagers. “We are angry and frustrated but we are not leaving Assiut,” she said, seated at her desk at the St. George Pharmacy on Youssry Ragheb Street. Under her desk’s glass is a poster of the Virgin Mary and on the wall is an image of St. George slaying the mythical dragon.

“Sadly, my children are angry with Egypt and want to leave and they don’t believe us when I and my husband tell them that things will get better soon. But, personally, I have faith that all this will yield something good for us and the country. We thought the Muslim Brotherhood will rule for 80 years and they are out after just one year. Who would have believed this?” Morsi is a longtime leader of the Brotherhood.

At least seven Christians have been killed since the coup, one of them in Assiut. Scores have been injured.

This week, in a village in the province of Minya south of Cairo, a pro-military song playing on a coffee shop radio sparked an argument between a Muslim and a Christian, and the next day a mob of thousands ransacked Christian homes and stores and tried to storm a church. At least 18 people were injured and arrests warrants issued for 35.

Egypt’s Christians used to shun politics, but since the Arab Spring of early 2011 they have started to demand a say in the country’s direction. They took it to a new level during Morsi’s year in office and the empowerment of his Islamist allies. Tawadros, the Coptic Christian pope installed last year, openly criticized the president and told Christians they were free to actively participate in politics.

It was a risky gamble for a minority that has long felt vulnerable, with its most concentrated communities, like the one in Assiut, living in the same rural areas where the most vehement Islamists hold sway.

During Morsi’s year in office, some of his hard-line allies increasingly spoke of Christians as enemies of Islam and warned them to remember they are a minority. When the wave of protests against Morsi began on June 30, Media supportive of his Muslim Brotherhood depicted the movement as dominated by Christians.

Still, at the ancient convent marking the last spot where the Holy Family is thought to have stayed before it left Egypt, hundreds gathered this week for an annual festival in upbeat mood. Children played, families picnicked, people lined up to buy blessed bread.

“Those who hate us are misled,” said a convent member named Martyra, speaking to the AP while standing in a cave where ancient Egyptians quarried stones to build their cities. “I am safe here in the convent but I worry and pray for those who live outside and have children.”

Muslims to Christians: “They’re infidels and they’ve built their church without permission”

 
‎13 ‎August ‎2013, ‏‎04:03:39 AM | adminGo to full article
From Archbishop Cranmer of Virtue Online:

 

In April 1996, Pope John Paul II attacked the intransigence of ‘followers of other religions’ who were persecuting Christians. He didn’t specify Islam, but everyone know who he meant.

In his Easter message Urbi et Orbi, he said Christians in Africa, Latin America, Asia and Europe had “legitimate aspirations” to jobs, housing, social justice and religious freedom which were “hindered” by other faiths. The Times continued: ‘The Pope recently condemned Islamic persecution of Christians in Sudan and will travel to Tunisia next weekend to plead for Islamic tolerance and Islamic-Christian dialogue.’

Nothing has really changed in almost 20 years. Indeed, the situation for Christians in these regions has actually become an awful lot worse.

The head of the Coptic Orthodox Church, for example, Pope Tawadros II, has had to cancel many public events at St Mark’s Cathedral in Cairo, fearing attacks from Brotherhood supporters who blame the Copts for the fall of Morsi. Indeed, the Copts in Egypt, who make up around 10 per cent of the population, have it an awful lot worse than gays in Russia. But there is no rolling coverage of their plight by the BBC: their persecution and murder is only mentioned in passing. No marches are staged in London; there is no damning comment by David Cameron or President Obama, and the world is largely silent as their churches are torched and congregations slaughtered.

Pope Tawadros was not the only religious leader who demanded change in Egypt, but his church is bearing the brunt. The Copts are increasingly fearful of meeting to worship: one of their number was recently kidnapped and beheaded in the Sinai.

And in Syria, Christians are being executed in their homes or subject to the judgments of sharia courts established to pass sentences upon those who violate precepts of Wahhabi Islam. As the Sunni ‘rebels’ struggle for ‘freedom’, the country’s 2.5 million Christians pray for the restoration of Alawite President Assad, their guardian and protector. Under him they had freedom to assemble, worship and speak. Indeed, Syria was for many the country of choice for Assyrian Christians fleeing the post-Saddam persecution. Their community is 2000 years old: today, they are verging on extinction.

But it is in Nigeria where the Islamist jihad rages most fiercely: according to a report on the Middle East Forum, 70 per cent of Christians killed around the world in 2012 were killed in the African nation. They list the most recent church Attacks: Egypt: According to El Watan News, three Christian brothers were shot dead at their home by automatic weapons a few weeks before two were set to have their weddings. The victims’ family was earlier accused of trying to build a church on land they owned because they purchased building material to build a house on that land. The rumors about the building of a church spread during the Friday sermon at the mosque, following which 2,000 Muslims stormed the land and tried to destroy the house, car and tractor, resulting in the murder of the three Christian brothers.

Indonesia: Authorities demolished a church building with a bulldozer in West Java, even as Muslim bystanders cheered and denounced Christians as “infidels.” According to Pastor Leonard Nababan, the government is “criminalising our religion.” The congregation had gathered around the church in an effort to save it; so did Muslims, shouting, “They’re infidels and they’ve built their church without permission,” “Knock the church down now” and “Allahu Akbar.”

Iraq: According to Fox News, before the U.S. invasion of Iraq, there were more than 300 Christian churches. Today, a decade after the jihad was unleashed on Christians and their churches, only 57 Christian churches remain in the nation. And “The churches that remain are frequent targets of Islamic extremists, who have driven nearly a million Christians out of the land…” An Iraqi-based human rights organization said that “The last 10 years have been the worst for Iraqi Christians because they bore witness to the biggest exodus and migration in the history of Iraq…. More than two-thirds [of Christians] have emigrated.” One of the most dramatic cases of Christian persecution came in late October of 2010, when Al Qaeda members laid siege to Our Lady of Deliverance Church in Baghdad, killing 58 and wounding 78. According to an AP report “Iraq’s Catholic Christians flocked to churches to celebrate Easter Sunday [in March], praying, singing and rejoicing in the resurrection of Christ behind high blast walls and tight security cordons… [emphasis added].”

Libya: A Coptic Christian church located in Benghazi was attacked by armed Muslims. The jihadis severely beat and shaved the beard and mustache of Father Paul, the priest of the church, as a sign of humiliation. They also beat the deacon and nine attendees. Meanwhile, because Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood-led government had done little regarding the systematic abuse of Egyptian citizens in Libya, including the murder of one under torture, Copts demonstrated in front of the Libyan embassy in Cairo-prompting yet another attack on the Benghazi church, which was set on fire.

Pakistan: In response to one Christian man accused of blaspheming Islam’s prophet thousands of Muslims attacked the Christian Joseph Colony of Lahore, burning two churches, one Catholic, the other a Seventh Day Adventist, as often happens in Pakistan in the context of collectively punishing Christians.

Sudan: According to Morning Star News, Khartoum’s jihad continues to “rid the area of non-Arabs and Christianity”: the Evangelical Church in the Nuba was “reduced … to ashes” after an aerial bombardment. Days later, another bombing campaign left two dead and twelve injured, in the Christian-majority region. “These bombardments are major sources of fear among the people in South Kordofan,” said a church leader.

Turkey: The 5th century Studios Monastery, dedicated to St. John the Baptist, is set to go from being a branch of the Hagia Sophia-Christianity’s grandest cathedral, which was transformed into a mosque, after the Islamic conquest and is currently a museum-to being an active mosque. Many Turkish Muslims continue calling for the return of the Hagia Sophia itself to a mosque. Where is their Stephen Fry? Who will be their celebrity champion with millions of Twitter followers, to whom the mainstream media will fawn and David Cameron and Barack Obama instantly respond?

“The Christians in Syria are helpless,” says activist

 
‎06 ‎August ‎2013, ‏‎03:43:26 AM | adminGo to full article
From the Washington Times:

The Arab Spring has not been kind to Christians, and Syria is a good example: The nation’s 2 million-plus Christians are caught in the middle of a Muslim war.

Jihadist rebels threaten and kidnap them while coercing others to become Muslims. Government troops loyal to President Bashar Assad order them to fight the opposition or face death.

A Christian bishop this year fled the northern area for Vienna to escape Syria’s secret police. He suspected they planned to kill him for not cooperating. In June, al Qaeda sympathizers beheaded a Catholic priest and proudly posted online cellphone videos of the bloody scene.

“The Christians have been practically targeted by both sides,” said Emanuel Aydin, a bishop of the Syrian Orthodox Church. “There is always some tension between Alawites, Shiites and Sunni Muslims, and in the middle are the Christians.”

Mr. Assad belongs to the minority Alawite sect, an offshoot of Shiite Islam, and rules over Syria’s majority Sunnis. Christians account for about 10 percent of Syria’s 22 million people.

Bishop Aydin, who is based in Vienna, was in the U.S. in July to garner support for his Institute for Peace in the Orient, which helps refugees resettle. He spoke Sunday at a New York benefit concert featuring Japanese soprano Seiko Lee.

“The Christians in Syria are helpless,” said David Eaton, who co-produced the concert. “Muslim families are supported by Saudi Arabia, Turkey and other Muslim countries. Many Christians are, therefore, forced to convert to Islam in order to survive.”

Bishop Aydin was in New Jersey, home to at least five Syrian Orthodox churches, and spoke through an interpreter. He estimated that about 500,000 Syrian Christians have fled the war for Lebanon, Eastern Europe and Scandinavia.

Mr. Eaton said some Syrian Christian refugees are “dumped” into countries with no money or place to live.

The bishop said about 300 Christians have been killed during the civil war, which began in March 2011. He said it is impossible to know exactly how many, but added that many are caught in crossfire situations or live in buildings bombed by the government or the rebels.

Two months ago, a Syrian Orthodox and a Greek Orthodox bishop were kidnapped. The institute is trying to raise money to pay any ransom.

Pakistani Christian: “expect more innocent blood to be shed”

 
‎06 ‎August ‎2013, ‏‎03:34:30 AM | adminGo to full article
From Christianity Today

 

 

Four years after the horrific murder of eight Christians in Gojra, Pakistan, the community is still waiting for justice to be done.

The victims, who included children, were burnt alive when a mob of extremist Muslims went on the rampage in the Christian town on 1 August 2009.

Dozens of houses and a church were also torched during the attack, which was triggered by allegations of local Christians desecrating the Koran.

Some eye witnesses claimed that the police stood by and ignored pleas for help from the Christians as the attack unfolded.

A subsequent investigation concluded that the Koran had not been desecrated as alleged.

The Pakistani government rebuilt houses for the victims but the process of bringing the perpetrators to justice has proved more difficult.

Despite dozens of people being arrested in the immediate aftermath, no one has ever been convicted or imprisoned for the crime. In 2011, the prosecution ground to a halt when a court acquitted 70 suspects, citing lack of evidence.

There has been further disappointment among Pakistan’s Christians as the Punjab government has dithered on publishing the findings of the judicial tribunal set up to investigate the attack. It is believed the report proposes amendments to the blasphemy laws and pins the blame largely on the failure of the police to respond adequately to the attack.

The Centre for Legal Aid, Assistance and Settlement (CLAAS) said it was “deeply distressed” that so little had been done to bring the perpetrators to justice.

Nasir Saeed, Coordinator of CLAAS UK, said: “The inaction and bewildering lack of urgency in holding the culprits of the Gojra violence to account has set a dreadful and terrifying precedent – that those who attack and murder Christians in Pakistan are likely to get away with it.

“Persecution of Christians will continue so long as there is no deterrent to stop radical Muslims doing what they like and taking the law into their own hands. It is imperative that the authorities do whatever it takes to see the perpetrators caught, tried and punished. Otherwise we can expect more innocent blood to be shed.”

The mood over the fourth anniversary of the attack has been even more sombre this year following the recent life imprisonment of one Christian man in Gojra, Sajjad Masih, for blasphemy, and the arrest of a Christian couple, Shafqat and Shaguftah Masih, who were accused of sending blasphemous text messages to a local Muslim.

Blasphemy, which includes desecrating the Koran or making derogatory comments about the Prophet Muhammad, is a serious crime in Pakistan that can be punishable by lengthy prison sentences or even death. Allegations of blasphemy are often the trigger for violence against Christians and other religious minorities.

Human rights groups, including CLAAS, say the blasphemy laws are behind much of the persecution of Christians in Pakistan and that they are being misused by extremists to settle personal vendettas and harass Christians.

Mr Saeed said continued: “The blasphemy laws are being misused time and time again. The Pakistani government must amend the blasphemy laws so that they can no longer be used to make false accusations against innocent people. People who committed no crime are literally losing their lives because of these unjust laws.”

Nigerian President: Nigeria In State of Emergency Because of Boko Haram

 
‎06 ‎August ‎2013, ‏‎03:25:46 AM | adminGo to full article
From the UN:

5 August 2013 – The Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) today reported that there is reason to believe that crimes against humanity have been committed in Nigeria, namely murder and persecution by the militant group known as Boko Haram.

A report issued by the Office of the Prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda, found that the group has, since July 2009, “launched a widespread and systematic attack that has resulted in the killing of more than 1,200 Christian and Muslims civilians in different locations throughout Nigeria.

“The scale and intensity of the attacks have increased over time,” adds the report, which is based on preliminary information through December 2012.

The Office stated in a news release that it is now assessing whether the national authorities are conducting genuine proceedings in relation “to those who appear to bear the greatest responsibility for such crimes, and the gravity of such crimes.”

It added that the Prosecutor is still assessing three other phases of the situation in Nigeria, and once completed, will decide if a situation meets the legal criteria established by the Rome Statute – the Court’s founding treaty – to warrant an investigation by the ICC.

During the timeframe of the report, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) repeatedly warned Boko Haram against attacks on civilians.

Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan declared a state of emergency in May to fight Boko Haram. Related anti-insurgent operations and general insecurity have uprooted thousands of people in north-eastern Nigeria, with more than 6,000 of them fleeing to neighbouring Niger for safety, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) reported in June.

Located in The Hague, in the Netherlands, the ICC is an independent, permanent court that tries persons accused of the most serious crimes of international concern – namely genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes – if national authorities with jurisdiction are unwilling or unable to do so genuinely.

African Missionary’s Notice

 

I’m part of the fellowship of the unashamed. I have Holy Spirit power.

           The die has been cast.

                             I have stepped over the line.

                                            The decision has been made.

                                                            I’m a disciple of His.

                             I won’t look back, let up, slow down, back away, or be still.

 

My past is redeemed, my present makes sense,

                 my future is secure. 

                                I’m finished with low living,

                                             sight walking, small planning,

                                                            smooth knees, colourless dreams,

                     tamed visions, mundane talking, cheap living, and dwarfed goals.

I no longer need pre-eminence,

                prosperity, position, promotions,     

                              plaudits, or popularity.

 I don’t have to be right,

                        first, tops, recognized, praised, regarded, or rewarded.

            I now live by faith,

                    lean on His presence,

                                 walk by patience, lift by prayer,

                                                and labour by power.

             My face is set, my gait is fast, my goal is heaven,

                              my road is narrow, my way rough,

                                        my companions few,

 my guide reliable, my mission clear.

              I cannot be bought,

                           compromised, detoured, lured away,

                                            turned back, deluded or delayed.

I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice,

                        hesitate in the presence of the adversary,

   negotiate at the table of the enemy,

                                                 ponder at the pool of popularity,

                                                            or meander in the maze of mediocrity.

I won’t give up, shut up, or let up,

                        until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up,

                                    paid up, and preached up for the cause of Christ.

 I am a disciple of Jesus.

I must go till He comes, give till I drop,

                 preach till all know, and work till He stops me.

 And when He comes for His own,      

                              He will have no problems recognizing me

                                       —my banner will be clear!

— by an Anonymous African Pastor —nailed to his wall prior to his execution

END TIMES SCENARIO

DVD

 

Many people are becoming increasingly conscious that we are entering a unique phase of human history. Some are terrified. Some are predicting cosmic doom on the near horizon. Others are making astonishing predictions. What does the Bible really say?

Eschatology (the Study of “Last Things”) is among the most challenging avenues of study, even for the most sophisticated.

  • What are the “real” End Time events?
  • What is the most preposterous doctrine in Christianity?
  • Does the Church go through the Great Tribulation?
  • Which Kingdom do we pray for in the Lord’s Prayer?
  • Is there really a “Battle of Armageddon”? Why?
  • What Scripture did Jesus deliberately leave out in Nazareth?
  • Who is the “AntiChrist”? Is he alive today?
  • Should we expect a literal Babylon on the horizon?

Join Dr. Chuck Missler in the Executive Briefieng Room of The River Lodge, in New Zealand, for an intensive summary of the entire fabric of controversies and insights in this most provocative area.

Video: Rick Warren and the Cult of Chrislam to which he belongs

Would you rather be a Christian whose faith and belief is so strong that you’d accept being called a bigot for it or would you cede parts of your faith in order to be perceived as tolerant, all-encompasing, or – dare I say it – lukewarm? In light of what Jesus did for those who believe in Him, a willingness on the part of those believers to wear the “bigot” label seems like the least they could do.

But alas, there are so-called “Christian” church leaders – like Rick Warren – who have decided to sign a document with Islamists – including Ground Zero mosque Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf and CAIR’s National Director, Nihad Awad – that says Christians and Muslims worship the same God. As the video below explains, that is fundamentally impossible. By signing that document, Rick Warren and others have denied the Trinity as well as a belief that rests at the core of Christianity – that Jesus is the Son of God who died for the sins of man. In other words, the “Christian” Church leaders who signed “A Common Word between us and you” have officially renounced their own faith.

But, hey, at least they can’t be called bigots, right?

 

 

Hopefully, after watching that video, you’ll look at these “Coexist” bumper stickers a little differently…
