Nigeria: Christian Pastor Dead, Family Members Missing, Dozens Of Others Killed After Jihadist Attack
Revelation 2:10, “Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer … Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.”
The pastor, Taiwo Dokun was killed by the insurgents when they launched attack on Dille village in Askira-Uba Local Government Area of the state on Monday.
According to some members of RCCG who spoke to journalists in Maiduguri, the whereabouts of the late pastor’s wife and his three children is not yet known.
‘It appears that the insurgents abducted members of the pastor’s family as well as many other residents of the town. The family members have not been found since the attack and they have not called any one.
‘Though their residence was completely razed by the insurgents, their corpses were not found in the debris’, one of the church members who preferred anonymity told DailyPost.
Speaking from Dille on Friday, Jacob Mamza narrated how the pastor was killed in the attack which claimed 45 lives.
He said ‘the pastor was in his house at about 6am when the insurgents attacked the village; his house was surrounded by the hoodlums and while attempting to run, he was shot.
‘Pastor Taiwo was running to a neighbour’s house and it was in the course of trying to escape that he was shot in the head and on the chest; the insurgents equally butchered him to make sure that he was dead’.
Mamza said the insurgents subsequently went to his house to raze it down and that it was at this time that his family might have been abducted.” Read more.

By Shimon Cohen and Maayana Miskin, INN – “Wounded soldiers have given shocking testimony regarding Hamas’ use of young children as human shields.
Parents of wounded soldiers spoke to Kol Yisrael on Tuesday and shared some of the disturbing stories they had heard from their sons. They said soldiers have repeatedly seen young children in Sheijaya, Gaza, be sent out into the streets with guns to try to attack IDF troops.
One parent reported that terrorists had run at IDF soldiers with a gun in one hand and a baby in the other, apparently in hopes that the soldiers would see the child and hold their fire. If soldiers fired, the parent added, the child’s death could be used as propaganda against Israel.
‘They’re continuing the same trick of using children as human shields, just as they did in Operation Cast Lead,’ one father said. Women are used as human shields as well, he added.
He expressed frustration at figures on the Israeli far-left who have accused IDF soldiers of committing war crimes. Israel’s soldiers do everything they can to avoid hurting innocent people, he said.
The parents’ testimony joins previous evidence of similar crimes, including reports from UNRWA that a school building was used to store rockets, and a video showing terrorists using an ambulance to escape the site of an attack.
Hamas has openly boasted about the ‘success’ of its strategy of using civilians as human shields during Operation Protective Edge.” Source – INN.

ISIS Caliphate Orders Muslim Employers To Fire All Christian Workers, Cuts Off Water To More Christians
Not only is this Beast preventing Christians from buying or selling, it is also continuing to cut off their main source of water in an effort to force all to bow down to Islam and convert. But these brothers and sisters in Christ who patiently endure will not be moved from the faith of Jesus. Although they are engaged in a flight for survival and the threat of death, the Water they drink is the fountain of everlasting life …
John 4:14, “… whoever drinks of the water that I [YESHUA] shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”
Isaiah 12:2-4, “Behold, God is my salvation. I will trust, and will not be afraid; for the LORD, the LORD, is my strength and song; and he has become my YESHU’AH. Therefore with joy you shall draw water out of the wells of YESHU’AH. In that day you will say, ‘Give thanks to the LORD! Call on HIS NAME. Declare his doings among the peoples. Proclaim that HIS NAME is exalted!’”

By Jason Motlagh, Bloomberg Businessweek – “Qaraqosh is one of the last refuges in northern Iraq for Christians fleeing persecution by the militants of Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, who swept into the region in June. A historic Christian city of 50,000 about 19 miles southeast of Mosul, Qaraqosh is under the formidable protection of the well-armed Peshmerga — the Kurdish fighters whose autonomous region disputes the area with both ISIL and the Iraqi central government based in Baghdad. Now, in a further effort to oust Christians from land they have inhabited for two millennia, the Islamic militants have begun turning off a precious utility: water.
Since taking Mosul on June 10, ISIL militants have squeezed Qaraqosh and nearby Christian villages by blocking the pipes that connect the communities with the Tigris river. Without a sufficient number of deep wells to fill the gap, the city must have water trucked in, at huge cost, from Kurdish-controlled areas just 15 miles away. Since ISIL took over key refineries in northern Iraq, the price of fuel has spiked across the region. The parched residents of Qaraqosh must pay about $10 every other day to fill up emergency water tanks, no small sum in this economically depressed part of Iraq.
Outside one of the town’s 12 churches, people queue from 6 a.m. until midnight to get their daily rations from a well. Flatbed trucks are joined by children with pushcarts and riders on bicycles bearing empty jugs. ‘Our lives revolve around water,’ says Laith, 28, a school teacher who returned with his family a day earlier from a suburb of Erbil, the Kurdish regional capital, 45 miles away, to which thousands of threatened Christians have migrated. Though aid agencies have erected several water depots around town, supplies are limited, barely enough to sustain large families in the 100-degree-plus heat. Plans to dig new wells will take at least several months to fulfill.
Christians have been fleeing ISIL-controlled territory since the militants and their allies overwhelmed the garrisons of the Baghdad government in Mosul, Iraq’s second-largest city and its most Christian. The Islamic State, which sees itself as the restoration of the caliphate to rule all Muslims, immediately imposed anti-Christian rules, ordering Muslim employers to fire Christian workers. The homes of Christian religious leaders were ransacked and occupied by militants. A Christian population as old as the faith shrank from 3,000 families to several hundred in weeks.
On July 18, ISIL ordered non-Muslims to convert or pay a tax last imposed during the Ottoman empire. If not, they would face ‘death by the sword,’ according to a decree that was read out in city mosques and broadcast from loudspeakers around town.” Read more.

By Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch – “The contrast is stark — as stark as the contrast between the civilized man and the savage. Ten thousand supporters of Israel staged a peaceful rally in support of the Jewish state yesterday in New York City, with none of the violence and threats that have marked pro-’Palestinian’ demonstrations all over the world. And predictably, this pro-Israel rally was itself threatened, as you can see above. But the lovers of freedom were not intimidated.
Here is video of Pamela Geller addressing the rally:
Qur’an Sura 4:95, “Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their persons. Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit (at home) …”
But what if they’re noncombatants who were sitting at home and had absolutely no desire to die “in the cause of Allah” yet ended up paying the ultimate price all because of Hamas’ evil, criminal practice of hiding behind Palestinian civilians while seeking to kill as many of Israel’s as possible? All innocents being killed in this conflict are not dying because of Israel. They’re dying because of Hamas. And, by all appearances, they couldn’t care less. For peaceful purposes …

By Tera Dahl, AINA – “The last Christian reportedly left Iraq’s second largest city of Mosul at 12:00pm on Saturday, ending over 6,000 years of Assyrian history in the city. Assyrians have lived in Mosul for over 6,000 years, converting to Christianity over 2,000 years ago. This all came to an end on Saturday, when the last Assyrian Christian left the city. On Thursday, July 17th, the Islamic State (IS) — formerly the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) — released a statement demanding the Christians in Mosul either to convert to Islam, paying the jizya (tax on non-Muslims), leave the city, or be killed. The threat was to be implemented on Saturday. It is being reported locally that by noon yesterday, every Christian had chosen to leave.
Here in Erbil, about an hour an half away from Mosul by car, I have spoken with families who were forced to flee. They describe how ISIS invaded their homes, taking whatever they wanted, and threatening to kill them. The estimates are that over 500,000 refugees have fled Mosul after Islamists took control on June 10th, and the few remaining Christians left yesterday.
One group of Christians I spoke with said that when ISIS first invaded Iraq, they portrayed themselves as armed humanitarians but then they quickly undercut that message by implementing strict Sharia law, such as making women wear the full burqa and banning all western clothing. Those Muslims who stayed behind are being forced to comply with the new puritanical laws and now they, too, are trying to leave the city.
One resident of Mosul I spoke with said, ‘It is like the Taliban in Afghanistan before the U.S. invasion.’ There, Al Qaeda created the safe-haven from which they launched the 2001 attacks of 9/11 against the United States.
Some Iraqi Christians had called on the international community to help create a protected zone in Ninevah Province so as to provide protection for all minorities around the city of Mosul and to provide protection from future attacks by IS. While the proposal for a new Ninevah Province has been submitted to the Iraqi Parliament, it was not finalized. Because of the inaction both inside Iraq and the failure of the international community to heed the threats against Christians, the majority of the refugees who have just fled Mosul remain in danger of being attacked once more by IS as it continues its jihadi blitzkrieg across Iraq and Syria.
Several people I have spoken to in Iraq reported that members of IS speak foreign languages and are not from Iraq only. One person said an IS member was speaking an Afghan language and wearing Afghani clothing. Another person said they heard dialects from Pakistan, Libya, and even English.
Everyone I have spoken with has expressed their frustration with the international community’s lack of response to the crisis facing the people of Iraq. They blamed the United States for creating the current situation and for leaving the country so quickly and so creating the vacuum for IS to exploit.” Read more.

In the Assyrian villages of Bartella and Qaraqosh, residents are now buying water at 7,000 Iraqi Dinars per cubic meter ($6.25). Village leaders are calling for relief, as the residents cannot afford to purchase water at these rates.
