Sudan: Recent Islamist Mobs Organized By Local ‘Religion of Peace’ Sheikh, ‘Muslims In This Area Must Gather In Front Of The Infidels’ Church And Destroy Them’


Compass Direct News – “JUBA, South Sudan, April 26 (CDN) — Christians faced increased hostilities in Sudan over the past few weeks, culminating in an attack on a Christian compound in Khartoum by a throng of Muslim extremists armed with clubs, iron rods, a bulldozer and fire.

Breaking down the compound wall with a bulldozer, the assailants on Saturday (April 21) set fire to the Gerief West Bible School and the Sudan Presbyterian Evangelical Church (SPEC) building; they also damaged three other places of worship and other buildings in the same compound, sources told Compass by telephone. Also damaged were a clinic, a home for the elderly, classrooms and living quarters.

‘What happened could not be imagined – it was terrible,’ said the Rev. Yousif Matar, general secretary of the Sudan Presbyterian Evangelical Church synod. ‘They burned all furniture of the school and the church as well.’

Following a fiery call by hard-line Muslim sheikh Muhammad Abdel Kareem on Friday (April 20) to a crowd of more than 500 to destroy ‘the infidels’ church,’ he led the attack the next day, sources said.

‘Tomorrow at 8 a.m., Muslims in this area must gather in front of the infidels’ church and destroy them,’ Kareem told the crowd, according to Compass sources.

The next morning, according to Christian support organization Open Doors, authorities held the mob back about a kilometer from the compound, but the assailants dispersed and found their way back early in the afternoon.

‘Police at the compound stood back and did nothing to prevent the mob from vandalizing the compound,’ Open Doors stated in a press release. ‘There was no cordon around the Bible school or church, as some have stated in other media reports.'” Read more.
