New Egyptian Terror Group To Christian Leaders: Convert To Islam Or Face Death

02/21/2013 3 comments

By Lisa Daftari, Fox News – “A group of Christian priests from a local Coptic church in Egypt were told to convert to Islam or face death, according to an Arabic news site.

The incident, which comes in the midst of continued persecution and pressure on Egypt’s Christian community, took place this week in the town of Safaga, near the Red Sea, the El Balad site reported.

According to El Balad, the threats are from a new group in Egypt, Jihad al-Kufr, whose name translates to Jihad against non-believers or non-Muslims. The group targets non-Muslims, and reportedly pressures them to convert to Islam.

‘It’s not the first time. This is happening every day,’ said Adel Guindy, president of Coptic Solidarity and a member of Egypt’s Coptic community who travels between Paris and Cairo. ‘This one incident caught the attention of the news agencies, but there are worse things happening to the Christians every day in Egypt,’ he said.

Christians have felt increasingly at risk since the fall of former President Hosni Mubarak in 2011, which resulted in the rise of President Mohammed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood movement.

‘It has definitely worsened under the revolution. Once the worst part of the society surfaced — the Islamists — the Copts are paying a heavy price. The West doesn’t really feel our pain. It’s a war of attrition,’ Guindy said.

Copts are the largest Christian community in the Middle East, and the most prominent religious minority in the region. Christians make up about 10 percent of Egypt’s 85 million people.

Egypt’s new constitution has come under scrutiny by many for including elements of Sharia, or Islamic law, while simultaneously legitimizing the marginalization of the country’s religious minorities by denying them legal protection. It also granted increased powers to Morsi, who self-declared sweeping powers in a Nov. 22 power grab that prompted heavy international criticism.

The new constitution was ratified after its second referendum in late December, winning more than 70 percent of the vote. Moderate Egyptians took to the streets to protest the rushed ratification, but the demonstrations were quickly quashed.

Some believe members of the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamic extremists, emboldened by the constitution’s passage, have Read more…

Islamic Butchery Manifests In America With Muslim Immigrants

By Frosty Wooldridge, Right Side News – “Americans must ask themselves if Muslim-style ‘multiculturalism’ fits into the United States of America.  Can our country tolerate beheadings, be-handings, female genital mutilation, arranged marriages of 12 year old girls and murders of gays?  Before 1990, no American ever experienced the barbaric ritual of beheading a person.

But since our U.S. Congress began importing a total of seven million Muslims from all over the Middle East and Africa since 1990, an ever increasing rate of ‘honor killings’ continue to horrify Americans around the country.

This week, the New York Daily News reported Islamic violence in Buena Vista, New Jersey: ‘Cops arrested Muslim Yusuf Ibrahim, 28, of Jersey City on Sunday after detectives found the bodies of the two men, aged 25 and 27, behind a home in Buena Vista Township. Their severed heads and hands were discovered at a separate burial site. The investigation into the grisly murder began Thursday following reports of suspicious activity at the Buena Vista home. Cadaver dogs located the bodies, which both suffered a single gunshot wound to their chests.’ (Source: New York Daily News, 2/19/13)

Muslim man accused of beheading two Christians in U.S. Torture, persecution of faithful no longer reserved for Islamic nations

Police reported in New Jersey that Yusuf Ibrahim beheaded and be-handed two Coptic Christians after shooting them.  He buried them in two separate graves in Buena Vista, New Jersey.

‘It’s a shock, something like this doesn’t happen,’ one resident said.

Pamela Geller, who blogs about Islam at Atlas Shrugs, said, ‘It appears to have been a ritual killing, religious in nature.  The victims were Coptic Christians and the murderer was Muslim, and we are painfully aware of the status and treatment of Christians under Muslim rule in Egypt.’

The killings stem from Islamic law within the Quran: ‘When Allah was revealing to the angels, ‘I am with you; so confirm the believers. I shall cast into the unbelievers’ hearts terror; so cut above the necks, and cut every finger of them!’ – Quran 8:12.’

At this time, America houses seven million Muslims.  They already advocate for Sharia Law within America.  As their numbers grow, they will implement it with the power of the vote. They continue practicing Read more…

NASA: Massive Sunspot At Least Six Times Diameter Of Earth Forms In Past 48 Hours, Solar Flares May Be Next

02/21/2013 1 comment

Examiner – “A sunspot growing fast on the sun has NASA taking notice. The massive sunspot has definitely grown fast and according to a report from Wednesday (Feb. 20), is large enough to ‘swallow six Earths whole.’

NASA began tracking the sunspot on Tuesday (Feb. 19) and tracked it as swelling took place over a 48-hour span. Cameras on the Solar Dynamic Observatory were able to show what was taking place. The camera have definitely revealed some interesting news about what is taking place on the sun right now.

According to NASA spokeswoman Karen Fox, ‘It has grown to over six Earth diameters across, but its full extent is hard to judge since the spot lies on a sphere, not a flat disk.’ Fox went on to talk about how the sunspots could indicate that there are solar flares ready to come next. ‘This is a fairly unstable configuration that scientists know can lead to eruptions of radiation on the sun called solar flares,’ Fox stated.

Any time a sunspot is seen growing fast on the surface of the sun, it raises the chances of a solar storm occurring. It will be very interesting to see if it causes any disruptions from satellites orbiting Earth, but that fact probably won’t be known for at least a few days. NASA has also provided an image for those interested in seeing what this new sunspot looks like.” Source – Examiner.
