Saudi Arabia Reaffirms Declared Destruction Of All Christian Churches In Region

And what should be done about all of the Christians who attend those churches? The prophet of the “Religion of Peace” is equally clear …

Qur’an Sura 8:12b, “… terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an.”

Charisma News – “Earlier this month, news reports surfaced out of Saudi Arabia that raised the red flag for Christians.

Todd Nettleton, a spokesman for Voice of the Martyrs USA, says, ‘The Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia—the top Islamic official in the country of Saudi Arabia—has declared that it is ‘necessary to destroy all the churches of the region.’ Nettleton goes on to note that the report hasn’t surfaced anywhere except on the Council on Foreign Relations Web site, which was then picked up by The Atlantic.

As Saudi Arabia is ranked second on the Open Doors World Watch List (a compilation of the 50 countries where persecution of Christians is most severe), the news is not really a surprise. There is no provision for religious freedom in the constitution of this Islamic kingdom.

All citizens must adhere to Islam, and conversion to another religion is punishable by death. Public Christian worship is forbidden; worshippers risk imprisonment, lashing, deportation and torture. Evangelizing Muslims and distributing non-Islamic materials is illegal. Muslims who convert to Christianity risk being subjected to honor killings, and foreign Christian workers have been exposed to abuse from employers.

Sheikh Abdul-Aziz ibn Abdullah, the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia, created an implication with his assertion. Nettleton explains, ‘This was in a meeting with Kuwaiti officials who came to Saudi Arabia. They were asking this Islamic official, ‘What should we do about the churches?’ His statement was, ‘There should be no Christian churches on the Arabian Peninsula.”

According to the report, the delegation wanted to confirm Shariah’s position on churches. Essentially, Nettleton says, ‘If you have churches in Kuwait, which they do, they should be destroyed. The interesting thing about this is that there are no churches in Saudi Arabia. There are no church buildings that are allowed to exist there. So he clearly wasn’t talking only for his own country. He was trying to export this ideology to the surrounding countries.’

This proclamation could affect churches in Kuwait, Oman, Yemen, Bahrain, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates. Nettleton observes that ‘in most of these countries, we’re not talking about a lot of churches; we’re talking about a few that are allowed to exist primarily to serve foreigners that are living in that country.’

However, the U.N. Human Rights Council has yet to take a stand on such blatant violations of freedom of religion. How the governments implement this declaration is yet to be determined.” Read more.

Saudi Arabian Textbooks Promotes Hatred Of Jews And Christians – “… AlAhmed gave examples of what Saudi children are taught. He said a guidebook says first-grade teachers should tell students that: ‘Adhering to Islam is the only path to enter heaven, and escape hellfire.’ ‘It is from Islam to love Muslims, and to hate the unbelievers and not to imitate them.’ ‘Examples of false religions [include] Judaism, Christianity.’ AlAhmed says a ninth-grade book teaches that, ‘The Jews and the Christians are enemies of the believers. He says an 11th-grade book states, ‘The cursed are: The Christians and all those who have erred from the true path, and worshipped God with other than his orders.'” Read more.

    The sheiks are trembling with fear that their people are rushing to Christ despite no Christian missionaries there. What do ya think is happening in the ‘kingdom’?
    ‘Who knows? The shadow knows’. The Breaker knows more. He is the One serving up the visions and dreams into the hearts and minds of despairing Muslims.

    Destruction of empty buildings, made with hands, will vastly enhance the movement of Christ.

    Janet Napilitano, head of Homeland Security, recently said that we and the Saudis share the same values (she wants to include Saudis with favored nations in terms of airport security). I am sure that the Saudis do hold the same values as some (hopefully few) in the government but they do not share my values. The Saudis are lobbying for the release from prison of a Saudi national who had kidnapped and forced an Indonesian woman into sex slavery here in Colorado. Seems its not a crime there. I guess Ms. Napilitano holds similar values?
