Quake downgraded to 7.2 by the USGS …
Associated Press – “A powerful magnitude-7.2 earthquake shook central and southern Mexico on Friday, sending panicked people into the streets, where broken windows and debris fell, but there were no early reports of major damage or casualties.
The U.S. Geological Survey said it was centered northwest of the Pacific resort of Acapulco, where many Mexicans are vacationing for the Easter holiday.
It was felt across at least a half-dozen states and Mexico’s capital, where it shook for at least 30 seconds. Around the region, there were reports of isolated and minor damage, such as fallen fences, trees and broken windows. Chilpancingo, capital of the southern state of Guerrero, where the quake was centered, reported a power outage, but service was restored after 15 minutes.
In Acapulco, 59-year-old Enedina Ramirez Perez was having breakfast, enjoying the holiday with about 20 family members, when her hotel started to shake.
‘People were turning over chairs in their desperation to get out, grabbing children, trampling people,’ the Mexico City woman said. ‘The hotel security was excellent and starting calming people down. They got everyone to leave quietly.’
The quake struck 170 miles (273 kilometers) southwest of Mexico City, where people fled high rises and took to the streets, many in still in their bathrobes and pajamas on their day off.
‘I started to hear the walls creak and I said, `Let’s go,” said Rodolfo Duarte, 32, who fled his third-floor apartment.
‘This is really strong,’ said Gabriel Alejandro Hernandez Chavez, 45, an apartment building guard in central Mexico City. ‘And I’m accustomed to earthquakes.’” Read more.

Sura 33:50a, “O Prophet! Lo! We have made lawful unto thee thy wives unto whom thou hast paid their dowries, and those whom thy right hand possesseth of those whom Allah hath given thee as spoils of war…”
If you fear that you will not act justly towards the orphans, marry such women as seem good to you, two, three, four; but if you fear you will not be equitable, then only one, or what your right hands own; so it is likelier you will not be partial. (Qur’an 4:3)
This verse is the basis for Islamic polygamy, allowing a man to take as many as four wives, as long as he believes he is able to ‘deal justly’ with all of them. But justice in these circumstances is in the eye of the beholder. Ibn Kathir says this the requirement to deal justly with one’s wives is no big deal, since treating them justly isn’t the same as treating them equally: ‘it is not obligatory to treat them equally, rather it is recommended. So if one does so, that is good, and if not, there is no harm on him.’
The verse goes on to say that if a man cannot deal justly with multiple wives, then he should marry only one, or resort to ‘what your right hands own’ — that is, slave girls.
The Qur’an commentator Maulana Bulandshahri explains the wisdom of this practice, and longs for the good old days:
During Jihad (religion war), many men and women become war captives. The Amirul Mu”minin [leader of the believers, or caliph -- an office now vacant] has the choice of distributing them amongst the Mujahidin [warriors of jihad], in which event they will become the property of these Mujahidin. This enslavement is the penalty for disbelief (kufr).
He goes on to explain that this is not ancient history:
None of the injunctions pertaining to slavery have been abrogated in the Shari”ah. The reason that the Muslims of today do not have slaves is because they do not engage in Jihad (religion war). Their wars are fought by the instruction of the disbelievers (kuffar) and are halted by the same felons. The Muslim [sic] have been shackled by such treaties of the disbelievers (kuffar) whereby they cannot enslave anyone in the event of a war. Muslims have been denied a great boon whereby every home could have had a slave. May Allah grant the Muslims the ability to escape the tentacles of the enemy, remain steadfast upon the Din (religion) and engage in Jihad (religion war) according to the injunctions of Shari”ah. Amen!
This is by no means an eccentric or unorthodox view in Islam. The Egyptian Sheikh Abu-Ishaq al-Huwayni declared in May 2011 that ‘we are in the era of jihad,’ and that as they waged jihad warfare against infidels, Muslims would take slaves. He Read more…

By Shoebat Foundation – “Saudi Arabia, the nation that allowed the Islamist boogeyman out of the box is now trying to shove it back in. According to a Reuters, Saudi Arabia was rattled by regional turmoil that has destabilized the Middle East. Saudi Arabia now is not only intensifying a crackdown on Shiites, liberal reformers, atheists and human rights advocates but even Sunni Islamists. One activist has described it as an ‘undeclared state of emergency’.
Saudi Arabia believes it is under attack as never before, say analysts with close ties to the kingdom’s elite, and sees Syria’s civil war and Egypt’s political crisis as posing a domestic threat. Responding to these perceived threats, Saudi Arabia has passed a set of laws that banned citizens from fighting abroad, donating money to any faction in Syria or sympathizing with militant ideologies.
Islamists from the kingdom’s conservative Sunni majority are the main focus of government unease, most clearly via a decree that branded the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization.
Amplifying Saudi worries about Syria and Egypt, the kingdom’s rulers feel surrounded by chaos: Iraq is still torn by sectarian violence while political turmoil casts a shadow over two of the kingdom’s other neighbors.
The problem with the Muslim Brotherhood could complicate their policy in Egypt, that besides their most important Arab ally against a common main rival, Shi’ite Iran.
After all it was Arabia — which Islam emanates from and its harlot religion is spread throughout the entire region. It was Arabia which produced Muhammad, Arabia’s prophet.
From a prophetic perspective, we see the impending destruction of Saudi Arabia. The kings stagger in their vomit as a drunkard not knowing what to do. Shoebat.com takes the position that Revelation 17 referenced Arabia as a prostitute ‘Whore of Babylon’. Arabia after all stems from ancient Babylon. This is no coincidence: ‘And the woman (whore) was arrayed in purple and scarlet color’ (v. 17) resembles the near copulating with the Kaaba’s Black Stone, which historically was dedicated to Aphrodite the prostitute goddess that was called ‘Aphrodite Porne’ (Aphrodite the Prostitute), ‘the goddess adorned in purple’, similar to the depictions given in Revelation 17:4.
Many in the West believe that such a harlot was depicting Rome.
But such analysis is impossible. Arabia links to the founder of the Islamic religion, which according to John 2:22 ‘denies Father and Son’. Rome still declares both Father and Son. People find seeming resemblance between Rome and Revelation (i.e scarlet robes, seven hills of Rome), but when examining all the differences, such findings run into Read more…

Revelation 9:21, “And they did not repent of their murders … or their sexual immorality …”
By Sumon Corraya, AsiaNews – “More than 100 Christians and Muslims demonstrated yesterday in Dhaka against the gang rape suffered by a young Catholic woman. The violence took place on April 14 in Mohammadour, a district of the capital, during the celebration of the Bengali New Year. She was attacked by four Muslim boys. The victim, a 21-year old ethnic Garo, survived and reported them.
The young woman called Mary Thigidi Purnima and is native of the parish of Mariamnagar, in the diocese of Mymensingh. She works in Dhaka as a beautician in the ‘Person’ beauty center.
On the day of the attack the victim was going to celebrate with a cousin when four Muslim boys accosted her, dragged her away and raped her. After the violence Purnima was able to call her brother in law, who was looking for her. After finding her, the girl filed a complaint against her attackers and one of them – Alif Ahmed – has already been arrested. The police is on the trail of the others.
The girl and her family do not feel protected: the relatives of the rapists continue to threaten them, warning them to drop the charges. But Purnima explains: ‘Many girls do not report rapes out of fear, but that’s why so many perpetrators remain free. Instead I want them to be brought before the courts’.
Among those present at yesterday’s event were many Christian students, and even some Muslims. The protest was organized by the Bangladesh Garo Chatra Sangathan (BGCS), a Garo tribal student organization. The President Sabuj Nokrek told AsiaNews: ‘If the tribal women are raped, the police do not want to deal with the case. The don’t investigate properly or provide security to the families of the victims. This worries us’.
According to data released during the protest, since the beginning of 2014 at least nine tribal women have suffered sexual violence, and two of them were killed after the attack. In 2013, a total of 67 tribal women and girls were raped.” Source – AsiaNews.

The Awami League (AL) lost everywhere: in Sylhet, Barisal, Rajshahi, Khulna and Gazipur. Candidates running for the main opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) won in every city where elections were held, taking control from the ruling secular-oriented AL. Two factors explain THE shift. On the one hand, corruption is rampant within the Al; on the other, religion has been used for political ends.” Read more.

Her family is torn; glad she survived the ordeal and desperate for justice, yet fearing victimisation by the perpetrators, the community and beyond. This is the portrait of an African who has endured a harrowing experience at the hands of men who rape in the name of religion. This is the portrait of an individual who has been the victim of sexual terrorism. Some call it ‘rape jihad’, others opt for ‘sexual terrorism’ or ‘forced marriage’. Whatever one may choose to call it, when terrorism meets sexual violence it is two crimes too many.” Read more.

By Faith J. H. McDonnell, FrontPage Mag – “An explosion devastated a busy bus station on the outskirts of the Nigerian capital of Abuja on Monday, April 14, 2014. It was the latest in a series of terrorist attacks on Africa’s most populous nation. No group had claimed credit for the attack as of Monday, but Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan laid the blame at the feet of Boko Haram, the Islamist terrorist group seeking the eradication of Christians and the Islamization of Nigeria.
The blast took place at 6:55 a.m. according to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN). Reuters reported at least 71 dead and 124 injured, but on Tuesday, Punch raised the number dead to 89, including three perpetrators, with 257 injured. And this was not the week’s only attack.
Just days earlier, Boko Haram jihadists killed some 200 in Borno, a northeastern Nigerian state that has seen far more than its share of jihad terrorism. Punch reported that on April 9-10 attacks took place on communities in several towns, as well as on a teachers’ training college and a group of students traveling to their matriculation exams. Boko Haram seemed determined to show that ‘western education is forbidden.’
Rarer was Monday’s attack on Abuja’s Nyanya Mass Transit Park – demonstrating the terrorists’ brazenness, operating in the country’s capital, as well as the northern and middle state belts to which they have already laid claim. The blast destroyed 16 high-capacity buses and damaged another 24, as well as affecting smaller vehicles, a police spokesman told Reuters. Many of the buses were loaded with commuters, so the attack left a hellish scene of charred bodies, body parts, and twisted metal. In Tuesday’s report, Punch told of an eyewitness who said that the attack was carried out by four insurgents in a Volkswagen Golf.
According to NAN, many of the commuters in this transit point for the satellite communities of the Federal Capital Territory surrounding Abuja were on their way to work and their businesses. But Nigerian attorney and human rights activist Emmanuel Ogebe pointed out that this attack took place on the first day of Holy Week in a country in which Easter is a major holiday.
‘Abuja is emptying out as people travel to their home states for the long holiday,’ said Ogebe. He believes the bus station was targeted deliberately on the week of Easter. This would be no surprise, as a majority of Islamist attacks in Nigeria target Christians, Christian holidays (holy days), and have occurred at churches and Christian schools and universities.

“[I]t’s not just a few ‘radical clerics’ — a few ‘rotten apples’ — that incite mobs to attack Christians, but rather the core texts of Islam itself” …
Qur’an Sura 8:59a, “The infidels should not think that they can get away from us. Prepare against them whatever arms and weaponry you can muster so that you may terrorize them …”
Qur’an Sura 8:12b, “… terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an.”
Qur’an Sura 25:52, “Therefore listen not to the Unbelievers, but strive against them with the utmost strenuousness, with the (Qur’an).”
Qur’an Sura 8:55, “Surely the vilest of animals in Allah’s sight are those who disbelieve [non-Muslims] …”

Focusing on one of the most obvious nations where Christians are regularly targeted — Egypt’s Coptic Christians — one finds that the ‘mob’ is the most visible and obvious culprit. One Copt accused of some transgression against Muslim sensibilities — from having relations with a Muslim woman, to ruining a Muslim man’s shirt — is often enough to prompt Muslim mobs to destroy entire Christian villages and their churches.
Recently, for example, after her cross identified Mary Sameh George as a Christian, a pro-Muslim Brotherhood mob attacked, beat, and slaughtered her.
However, a recent Arabic op-ed titled ‘Find the True Killer of Mary‘ looks beyond the mob to identify the true persecutor of Christians in Egypt. According to it:
Those who killed the young and vulnerable Mary Sameh George, for hanging a cross in her car, are not criminals, but rather wretches who follow those who legalized for them murder, lynching, dismemberment, and the stripping bare of young Christian girls—without every saying “kill.” [Islamic cleric] Yassir Burhami and his colleagues who announce their hate for Christians throughout satellite channels and in mosques—claiming that hatred of Christians is synonymous with love for God—they are the true killers who need to be tried and prosecuted… The slayers of Mary Sameh are simply a wretched mob, with the body of a bull but the brain of a worm. It’s not the puppets on the string who need punishing, but rather the mastermind who moves the puppets with his bloody fingers behind closed curtains that needs punishing.
One fact certainly validates this Arabic op-ed’s assertions: the overwhelming majority of attacks on Christians in Egypt and other Muslim nations — including the slaughter of Mary Sameh George — occur on Friday, the one day of the week that Muslims congregate in mosques for communal prayers and to hear sermons.
The significance of this fact can easily be understood by analogy: what if Christians were especially and consistently violent to non-Christian minorities on Sunday — right after they got out of church? What would that say about what goes on in Christian churches?
What does it say about what goes on in Muslim mosques? Read more…
