Ethiopia: Muslim Officials Charge Evangelist With ‘Terrorism And Treason’ For Discussing Islam From A Christian Perspecive

This article would have probably given the officials an aneurysm …

ICC – “(International Christian Concern) – International Christian Concern (ICC) has learned that Ethiopian officials have arbitrarily detained and arrested a Christian evangelist under charges of terrorism and treason in response to his Christian faith and activities. The evangelist was initially arrested in late March of this year in Dodola, a city located 180 miles south of Ethiopia’s capital, Addis Ababa.

Alemayehu Legese, an Ethiopian evangelist, was arrested by local police after having admitted to owning literature that ‘discussed the history of Islam from a Christian perspective.’ Legese, a student at Dodola Mekane Yesus Bible School, had dropped the literature off at a copy shop. A Muslim employee subsequently contacted authorities to demand Legese face consequences for violating the widespread cultural belief that Christians, being inferior citizens, are morally insufficient to learn the history of Islam.

In addition, Legese was known for his outwardly evangelistic nature. It is believed that because of this, as well as the fact that he coordinated faith-based activities for youths at his local church, Legese was made a target for arrest and ultimately arbitrarily detained

In court, Legese’s lawyer objected to the charges of both terrorism and treason, and as a result, the court ordered public prosecutors to modify their charges against Legese. The prosecution has yet to do so. Until the prosecution submits new charges against Legese, he will continue to sit in jail, awaiting charges that may take years to be submitted.

‘I think the evangelist is arrested to discourage other Christians from teaching [the gospel] in the area… All the government officials in the area are Muslims and this has created a big problem [for the Christians],said a Christian legal expert who asked to remain anonymous.” Read more.

Muslim Immigration And The Fate Of Europe

06/27/2013 Leave a comment

Proverbs 14:12, “There is a way which seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.”

By Nikolaas de Jong, The Brussels Journal – “Is European civil war inevitable? Increasingly the question is posed these days not only by those who were in the past labeled alarmists and political amateurs, but by all sorts of people who are waking up to the disconcerting aspects of Muslim immigration in Europe. At first thought, predicting civil war would indeed still sound somewhat irresponsible to many westerners, especially the middle and upper classes who have retreated in pleasant and quiet suburbs, and therefore believe the whole country must look like their quiet, pleasant suburbs,  populated by the same friendly and orderly kind of people. Indeed it is stunning to what extent  this group have become totally isolated from evolutions in their own country, to the point that once again we may refer to ‘the two nations’; the pays réel, so to speak, composed of people who are often confronted with Muslim behavior and simply don’t like what they see, and the pays légal, composed of the estranged upper middle classes and politicians of all parties. I can very well imagine that all warnings about growing Islamic influence in our cities, and eventually in the country as a whole, strikes these people as apocalyptic. Nonetheless, -and this is also an answer to critics of Islam who aren’t very impressed by the Islamic threat and believe a Muslim takeover is impossible- it is very hard to deny the overwhelming evidence, both relating to current affairs and to larger historical patterns, that within the next century Europe will witness, if not an Islamic takeover, at least serious internal tensions that will probably complete the process of decline that set in after the First world war.

The problem of large numbers of Islamic immigrants arriving in Europe each year, is serious enough in itself. Currently, the Muslim population is believed to exceed ten percent in France, and in all major European countries it has reached the five per cent mark some time ago. It may be true that, as some critics of the ‘Eurabia’ thesis reassuringly note, a less than ten per cent total for western Europe as a whole is not alarmingly great, because their influence on society as whole is negligible even if they pose grave problems by themselves. But this is to ignore the long-term evolution: since 2000, the Islamic population in Europe and the United States has almost doubled, and there is no  reason to assume that this trend will not continue in the next decades; already, it can be predicted with certainty that some major European cities will have a Muslim majority some years from now. Arguments to counter this prediction are unconvincing and, mostly, simply ignore reality: Muslim birth-rates may be slowly declining, but as Muslim communities in the west become larger and form their own closed systems, impervious to western influence, this decline is already becoming less marked.  Second, even with declining birth rates, there is not much hope if immigration continues as it does today, legal as well as illegal. It has been estimated that in the worst case of the United Kingdom, about two hundred thousand immigrants arrive each year, undoubtedly for a large part Muslims, and Sweden is actively encouraging immigrants and expects to receive another forty thousand of them this year. In total, more than a million immigrants are still arriving in Europe annually, and current democratic policies and standards can in no way suffice to stem this avalanche. Europe will probably only be shaken out of complacency when it is too late, and the apparatus of state coercion will already partly be dominated by the Islamic community.

But the problem is not simply a demographic problem: as readers of the BJ will know, the Muslim immigration question in the West is intimately connected with political and cultural factors, first of all the influence of the Arab oil countries, and secondly the demographic explosion in the Muslim world. In fact, the revival of Islam stems from these two factors, combined with the cultural crisis in the west and the corresponding dominance of political correctness. You do not have to accept the Eurabia theory to appreciate the weight of these factors: maybe it cannot be ascertained that at a given moment political leaders from Europe and Saudi Arabia concocted some scheme and that all current evolutions have been planned in some way, but what is certain is that Saudi oil money has bought large segments of the American and West-European campus and has decisively influenced the academe and policy makers with its propaganda campaign to obscure the real nature of Islam. And of course, it must be visible to all that the foreign policy decisions of western nations have been determined by Arab demands and preferences, as in the Bosnian crisis when the US deployed an air force to protect Bosnian Muslims who were in fact the original aggressors, while at the same time hundreds of thousands of Christians were slaughtered in Darfur by Jihadist, and the international community even refused to impose an air blockade. Similarly, the Obama administration rushes in to complain to the Burmese government about its treatment of Muslims, while Christians and other minorities are almost without exception persecuted in Islamic countries, first of all in Egypt and Nigeria, and all western response is lacking.” Read more.

UK: Muslim Sex Gang Threatened To Cut Face Off Victim And Behead Her Baby If She Reported Abuse To Police

For peaceful purposes …

Qur’an Sura 48:29a, “Mohammed is [Allah’s] apostle. Those who follow him are ruthless to the unbelievers …”

Qur’an Sura 3:110, “Ye are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind …”

By Mark Duell, Mail Online – “Members of a sadistic paedophile ring convicted of grooming vulnerable underage girls for sexual exploitation threatened to decapitate the baby of one of their young victims, a court heard today.

The Old Bailey in central London was also told that one of the Oxford-based sex ring’s victims has considered suicide while another suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of the abuse.

Statements from some of the victims’ parents were read out in court ahead of the sentencing of the gang, in which they described how the seven defendants had ruined their daughters’ lives.

The court heard the extent of the girls’ psychological damage, with one admitting she is prone to depression and self-harming, while another suffers nightmares, panic attacks and flashbacks.

A statement from the mother of that girl said her daughter developed chronic insomnia and also suffered a minor stroke, believed to have been brought on by the stress of what happened.

She said the family had to leave their home, leading to her daughter receiving a call in which she was threatened with having her face cut off, and relatives having their throat slit and being decapitated.” Read more.

Syria: Islamic Militants Behead Christians In Front Of Cheering Crowd

06/27/2013 6 comments

Behold, the exceedingly dreadful Beast that devours and tramples all residue under its feet. But a Day is coming when this Beast will be slain and his body destroyed and given to the burning flame …

Revelation 6:9-11, “… I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held. And they cried with a loud voice, saying, ‘How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?’ Then a white robe was given to each of them; and it was said to them that they should rest a little while longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their brethren, who would be killed as they were, was completed.”

Daniel 7:27a, “Then the kingdom and dominion, And the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven, Shall be given to the people, the saints of the Most High …”

Syria Report – “Two Christians, one of them a priest, have been beheaded by militants because they were suspected of cooperating with the Syrian military, according to an Al-Alam report.

A video uploaded to the internet yesterday shows two men with their hands bound, surrounded by dozens of people, many of them armed and cheering in celebration.

The two are brutally executed – beheaded with a small combat knife. Echoing previous beheading recorded by insurgents, the head is held up to the cheers of onlookers and then placed on the body.

This month has seen an escalation in sectarian atrocities committed by insurgents, who have been publicly armed and supported by America, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey and other actors. Indeed, the atrocities are coinciding with further arms transfers – with new advanced weaponry witnessed in the hands of militants in the past number of weeks.

The most recent beheading recorded on video and uploaded to the internet, reportedly took place in Idlib countryside.

Recently, a Catholic priest was executed by foreign militants. The monastery in which he resided was burnt and looted, echoing the events of a massacre in Homs last month which resulted in the entire population of a Christian village being wiped out and their houses and possessions burnt. Two Christian bishops who were kidnapped by Chechen gunmen in Aleppo earlier this year, are still missing.” Read more.

‘Incredible Violence And Incredible Suffering’: Suicide Bomber Detonates Near Church In Christian Area Of Damascus, At Least 4 Dead

06/27/2013 Leave a comment

AFP – “A suicide bomber killed at least four people in a Christian area of the Syrian capital on Thursday as aid groups said they cannot keep pace with the ever-growing suffering.

State media said the bomber struck near a church belonging to an order of the Maronite church, killing four people, a toll confirmed by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

‘A terrorist suicide bombing… in Damascus has left four people dead and several others wounded,’ state television reported said.

The Britain-based rights watchdog said in ‘a suicide bomber detonated his explosives near the Mariamite church. According to preliminary reports, four people were killed and several others wounded.’

The Observatory also reported shelling in nearby Al-Amin Street, also in old Damascus, without going into further detail.

The latest violence in a conflict the Observatory says has killed more than 100,000 people comes as relief groups say they are unable to keep pace with the rising misery.

‘There is a huge discrepancy between the ability to cope with the Syrian crisis and the escalating speed in which the demands in Syria are growing,’ said Peter Maurer, the head of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).

‘And this gap still continues to widen as we speak,’ he said in Geneva, decrying ‘incredible violence and incredible suffering, and quite extraordinary violations of international humanitarian law by all parties to the conflict in Syria.’

On Tuesday, the World Food Programme warned that Syrians caught up in the war are cutting basic foods from their diets to save money, or resorting to begging to survive.

Maurer, presenting the ICRC’s 2012 annual report, said the Syrian conflict represents the organisation’s largest outlay, ahead of Afghanistan, with 101.3 million Swiss francs (82.2 million euros/$107.2 million) dedicated to addressing it this year.” Read more.
