Egypt: Angry Muslim Mobs Barring Christians From Attending Church, ‘It Is A Big Problem Across Egypt’

And it’s going to get worse. This is one way the enemy may attempt to cause the “sacrifice” and “oblations” to cease

1 Peter 2:5, “You also, as living stones, are built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God through Yeshua the Messiah.”

Hebrews 13:15, “Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name.”

By Luiz Sanchez – “A large mob in the village of Ezbet Marco, in the Beni Suef governorate, gathered around the only Coptic Church in the area on Sunday morning, forbidding Copts from neighbouring villages from entering the church.

According to Ishak Ibrahim, a journalist and researcher at the Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights, two Copts were injured as a result of violence brought about by the predominantly conservative Muslim crowd barring the entrance.

As the church is the only church in the area, it is very hard for Copts in neighbouring villages to pray elsewhere. As the mob maintained their blockade of the church skirmishes occurred, and two Copts identified by Ibrahim as Sobhi Saleh and Ibrahim Sadeq reportedly suffered from fractured arms and feet. Cars were also damaged in the scuffle.

‘During Ramadan priests and Copts from Ezbet Marco were asked to not allow Copts from outside the village to pray in the church because the Muslims in the area believe they dress inappropriately,’ Ibrahim added. The women’s attire does not conform to traditional dress.

The police surrounded the church to protect it from being attacked and, according to eyewitnesses that had spoken to Ibrahim, managed to diffuse the situation and arrest some people suspected of participating in the mob.

‘This is not only a problem in this village,’ Ibrahim said. ‘It is a big problem across Egypt.’ Two months ago, in the Al-Amareya district in Alexandria, Muslims demanded the local church refuse to receive Christians from outside the village. ‘What can the people do,’ Ibrahim said. ‘They don’t have [a] church in their area and therefore must go to nearby villages that do have one.'” Read more.

Flashback: Muslim Group: ‘Christianity Should Be Destroyed And Wiped From The Face Of The Earth’, It Is ‘Evil’ and ‘Demonic’ – “A Muslim group has released its plan to ‘wipe Christianity from the face of the earth,’ Islamize the West and establish an Islamic system of world government – placing those who resist ‘under a police state.’ The 23-page booklet, ‘The Global Islamic Civilization: The Power of a Nation Revived,’ is the brainchild of the United Muslim Nations International, a group led by Sheik Farook al-Mohammedi. The document outlines a plan for Muslim world domination and the re-establishment of the Caliphate. Al-Mohammedi leaves no doubt about his view of Christianity. ‘Christianity should be destroyed and wiped from the face of the earth … It is an evil demonic and Anti-Christ system, all Christians are in complete Ignorance.’ The sheik includes a veiled threat in his remarks.” Read more.

Here’s an update on yesterday’s suicide car bombing at a church in Nigeria …

allAfrica – “Kaduna State was yesterday thrown into another round of pandemonium following a suicide bomb blast that rocked the Saint Rita’s Catholic Church at Ungwa Yero in Malali, Kaduna North LGA. The church has a capacity to accommodate over 1,000 worshipers.

The blast, which affected mostly women and children, killed at least 15 people and severely injured about 150 including the parish priest, Rev. Fr. Bonet Micah…

The bishop said: ‘I feel more pained in my heart over this unfortunate incident as 90 per cent of the victims are children. We pray for their quick recovery and fortitude to bear the loss of those who died in the process. My appeal is to the Christians, especially the Catholic youths, not to consider reprisal as an option as this will rather create more tension and add to the already bad situation’…

‘The people that were mostly affected are my choir members and the little children, although some other members of the church like those on the altar and the priest were also affected. Two persons died instantly including the suicide bomber, but there were over 150 others injured with some in critical condition right now,’ he said.” Read more.

Syria: At Least 10 Killed, Many Of Them Women And Children, After Another Car Bombing In Christian Suburb Of Damascus

By Chana Ya’ar, INN – “At least ten people were killed and 41 others were wounded Monday in a car bombing on the outskirts of the Syrian capital of Damascus. The blast blew apart pieces of surrounding buildings in the Christian and Druze suburb of Jaramana.

Syrian state television said a ‘terrorist car bomb’ was responsible for the deaths, which included women and children, near a bakery in the southeastern district controlled by loyalists fighting for President Bashar al-Assad.

The attack came in between fierce air strikes against the area by Syrian government warplanes determined to erase rebel targets in the capital. Chunks of concrete and other building materials dropped from surrounding balconies on to cars parked in the residential area of the attack.

A similar car bombing killed 15 people in Damascus on Friday, state media reported.

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said at least six air raids were carried out on Damascus suburbs on Monday alone. It was to be the fourth and final day of a ‘ceasefire’ between government troops and opposition fighters in observance of the Eid al-Adha Muslim holiday. But the so-called ‘truce’ was violated nearly from the moment it was declared, a cynical prediction that had been made to media by officers from both sides at the start.” Read more.

Muslim Cleric Condemns Christianity For Teaching Gender Equality Because It ‘Contradict[s] The Teachings Of The Quran’

10/29/2012 1 comment

Galatians 3:28, “There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”

1 Timothy 5:1-2, “Do not rebuke an older man harshly, but exhort him as if he were your father. Treat younger men as brothers, older women as mothers, and younger women as sisters, with absolute purity.”

By Raymond Ibrahim – “A recent talk show on the Egyptian station Al Hafiz partially explains why it is that Islam’s clerics are staunchly against discussing Christian or biblical teachings in Egyptian schoolrooms—even as the teaching of the Quran is mandatory, for both Muslim and Christian students.

Discussing Christianity’s teachings concerning women, one of the guests, a sheikh dressed in traditional cleric garb, said they ‘truly stab the rulings of Islam.’ To exemplify, he read from a text that said ‘the Christian religion does not differentiate between women and men, but it confirms their perfect equality: it gives them an equal share in inheritance, it bans divorce, and it bans polygamy.’

‘Now,’ said the sheikh, ‘if my son hears such things while he’s in school, he’ll come home and say to me, ‘Father why do you have many wives? You are unjust—unlike Christianity which is full of justice’!’

He went on to say that such teachings completely contradict ‘the religion of the prophet,’ who of course had many wives—more than the Quran’s prescribed four—made divorce a simple matter for men, and decreed that females only inherit half of what males inherit.

The cleric complained that, based on such Christian teachings, Muslim men who try to exercise their Islamic rights—including polygamy, double-inheritance, and easy divorce (recent examples include via text-messaging)—become ‘criminals, and the religion [Islam] that taught them such things taught them crimes.’

The cleric concluded by saying it is impermissible ‘to produce texts that contradict the teachings of the Quran, or the practices we’ve been raising our children on for a million years.'” Source – Jihad Watch.

Flashback: Egyptian Cleric: Islam Teaches A Man To Beat His Wife So That She’ll Treat Him With Kindness, Respect, And Know He Is Superior – “Islam instructs a man to beat his wife as a last resort before divorce, so that she will mend her ways, treat him with kindness and respect, and know that her husband has a higher status than her… A good woman, even if beaten by her husband, puts her hand in his and says: ‘I will not rest until you are pleased with me.’ This [is] how the Prophet Mohammed taught his women to be.” Read more.
