Egypt: Muslim Mobs Rampage Through Village Killing Christians, ‘There Is No God But Allah And The Christians Are [Allah’s] Enemies’

07/10/2013 3 comments

By HAMZA HENDAWI, The Republic – “CAIRO — With a mob of Muslim extremists on their tail, the Christian businessman and his nephew climbed up on the roof and ran for their lives, jumping from building to building in their southern Egyptian village. Finally they ran out of rooftops.

Forced back onto the street, they were overwhelmed by several dozen men. The attackers hacked them with axes and beat them with clubs and tree limbs, killing Emile Naseem, 41. The nephew survived with wounds to his shoulders and head and recounted the chase to The Associated Press.

The mob’s rampage through the village of Nagaa Hassan, burning dozens of Christian houses and stabbing to death three other Christians as well, came two days after the military ousted Islamist President Mohammed Morsi from power. It was no coincidence the attackers focused on Naseem and his family: He was the village’s most prominent campaigner calling for Morsi’s removal.

Some Christians are paying the price for their activism against Morsi and his Islamist allies in a backlash over his ouster last week.

Since then, there has been a string of attacks on Christians in provinces that are strongholds of hard-liners. In the Sinai Peninsula, where militant groups run rampant, militants gunned down a priest in a drive-by shooting as he walked in a public market.

Egypt’s Christian minority, about 10 percent of the population, long shunned politics for fear of reprisals, relying on their church to make their case to those in power. That changed in the revolutionary fervor when autocrat Hosni Mubarak was toppled in 2011, as Christians started to demand a say in the country’s direction.

But they took it to a new level during Morsi’s year in office and the empowerment of his Islamist allies. The new Coptic Christian pope, Tawadros II, enthroned in November, openly criticized the president. He told Christians they were free to actively participate in politics and that the church will not discourage them.

‘The Christians have emerged from under the robes of the clergy and will never go back,’ said Ezzat Ibrahim, an activist from Minya, a southern province with a large Christian community.

It was a risky gamble for a minority that has long felt vulnerable, with its most concentrated communities often living in the same rural areas where the most vehement and vocal Islamists hold sway.

During Morsi’s year in office, some of his hard-line allies increasingly spoke of Christians as enemies of Islam and warned them to remember they are a minority. When the wave of protests against Morsi began on June 30, Brotherhood media depicted it as dominated by Christians — and to hard-liners, it smacked of Christians rising up against a Muslim ruler.” Read more.

Egypt: Muslim Brotherhood Supporters Wave Black Flag Of Al Qaeda In The Sinai, ‘The Era Of Peace Has Ended’

The “era of peace” ended a long, long time ago

By Daniel Greenfield, Frontpage Mag – “Since those are Syrian Al Qaeda flags, maybe soon they’ll be able to use some of those weapons Obama promised them to overthrow the Egyptian government.

It could have been Syria, but it was Egypt, last week. Black jihadist flags, inset with the white oblong cartouche favoured by Syrian affiliates of al-Qaeda, were being waved above a cheering crowd. An angry speaker addressed the masses.

“We need to form a council of war,” he shouted, sounding hoarse from excitement. “The era of peace has ended. If the army attack us we will attack back. We say to the Egyptian army that the day might yet come when we tell it to leave Sinai.”

The crowd, demanding Mr Morsi’s return, drove off the guards, stormed the palace and raised another black flag on the roof. In all, five policemen and a soldier were killed across Sinai at the weekend. On Saturday afternoon, Mina Aboud Sharween, a priest serving el-Arish’s Coptic Christian community, was shot dead by two gunmen on a motorbike. All this went almost unnoticed in the international media.

Here is what the Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party, the organisation it set up and controls to run in elections, had to say in the immediate aftermath: “The party calls on the international community and international organisations and bodies, and all the free world, to intervene to stop further massacres and end military rule, so as not to create a new Syria in the Arab world.”

If it does not intend to take up arms against the new order, how could Egypt end up like Syria?

The New Syria. So much better than the old Syria.” Source – Frontpage Mag.

‘Diabolical’: Christians Are Being Tortured, Slaughtered In The Sinai Just For Being Christians, ‘I Was Hung For Days’

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.”

By Chris Mitchell, CBN News – “JERUSALEM, Israel — From the West Coast of Africa to the deserts of Sinai, Bedouin tribes are conducting a human trafficking trade on a massive scale.

It’s no secret. The trade reaps millions of dollars and deals with human misery. It could be stopped but so far no one has dared.

‘By that time I had lost sense (sensation) in both my hands,’ an Eritrean torture victim told CBN News. ‘It was a result of the accumulated torture but mainly because (both) of my wrists were tied up so tightly, (and I was) hanged up from the ceiling for three days, the blood was cut off from my hands and the flesh started to literally drip from my hands.’

This man is just one victim of this widespread modern-day slavery, kidnapping, and torture trade in the Sinai desert. There are many pictures and videos of this horrible practice on the Internet.

For this story, this Christian man from the African country of Eritrea is going by ‘Philip,’ but that’s not his real name. CBN News covered his identity for his protection.

‘In some cases, we were tortured simply because we were Christians,’ he told us, his chest trembling slightly as he spoke.

‘Sinai was always a place for human smuggling, but since around two years ago — even a bit more — it started also to be a place of human torture,’ Shahar Shoham, director of Physicians for Human Rights, told CBN News.

Shorham has documented more than 1,300 cases of torture in the Sinai. Those survivors, like Philip, made it to Israel. But most of the cases of torture are not documented.

‘They torture them in horrible methods, like hanging upside down from the ceiling, like using electric shocks, like burning them on their bodies,’ Shorham said...

This story begins in Eritrea, where many like Philip fled from its brutal dictatorship. He traveled to a United Nations refugee camp in Sudan. There he was kidnapped by a Bedouin tribe.

They transferred him — along with many others — through Sudan, Egypt, and all the way to the Sinai desert and their torture camps.

What happens next in these camps is diabolical.” Read more.

Unsealed: A Closer Look At Revelation 6 And ‘The Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse’ – “John describes the rider of the Black Horse in Revelation 6:5 as having ‘scales’ or ‘balances’ in his hands, employing the Greek word ‘zygos‘ which is also used metaphorically to refer to any sort of ‘burden’ or ‘bondage’ as well as the imposition of ‘troublesome laws’ … conduct must be based upon a strict set of Islamic laws, called the Sharia, and anyone failing to follow ‘Allah’s’ burdensome edicts must suffer draconian punishments, non-Musims included… The fruit of Islam and its laws have produced and will continue to produce the type of conditions that precipitate and perpetuate all sort of pestilences, all manner of plagues, any number of conflicts and hardships both inside and outside the Islamic world… It is my view that we are already within the 5th Seal … After a relative lull, Islamic persecution has literally exploded once again in the aftermath of 9/11 and the rise of the Arab Spring. The Prophet Daniel writes that this final Beast would be ‘dreadful and terrifying’ and would ‘speak out against the Most High and wear down the saints of the Highest One’ …” Read more.

Flashback: Saudi Arabia: Prominent Religious Leader Calls For Slavery To Be Legalized Once Again Because ‘Slavery Is A Part Of Islam’ – “Slavery is explicitly permitted in the Koran.  Recently Sheikh Saleh Al-Fawzan, a prominent Saudi religious leader called for slavery to be re-legalized throughout the kingdom.  According to the Sheik, a member of the Senior Council of Clerics:  ‘Slavery is a part of Islam.  Slavery is part of jihad, and jihad will remain as long there is Islam.’ In thought and deed this way of thinking is common throughout the Islamic world.  Abu Ishaq al-Huwanini, an Egyptian Cleric proudly proclaims he wishes to apply the ancient Shar’i code of enslaving populations which refuse to pay the jizia (poll tax) or converting to Islam when defeated at the hands of a Muslim nation.” Read more.

The World Is Under Attack By Radical Islam, ‘The Truth Cannot Be Denied’

07/10/2013 6 comments

dominateworld2bBy Rachel Molschky, Cherson and Molschky – “Muslims are attacking Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists and any other non-Muslims or fellow Muslims from different denominations around the world. In just the past few days, there have been several incidents where militant Muslim groups have killed innocent civilians for not sharing their beliefs.

On July 6, militants from Islamic terrorist group Boko Haram in Nigeria, stormed a secondary school. They began shooting the students and burning them alive in their dormitory. It happened just before dawn while the children were still sleeping. Initial reports counted 29 dead children and one adult, however, altogether 42 bodies were found, many charred beyond recognition.

Boko Haram is against what they perceive to be a Western-style education. Since 2010, they and other similar and affiliate groups have killed around 1600 civilians in suicide bombings and attacks like this one.  They’ve attacked schools, healthcare workers administering vaccinations, government employees, teachers, etc.

Farmer Malam Abdullahi found the bodies of two of his sons, a 10-year-old shot in the back as he apparently tried to run away, and a 12-year-old shot in the chest. ‘That’s it, I’m taking my other boys out of school,’ he said as he wept over the two corpses. He said he had three younger children in a nearby school.

Just a few days before, terrorists went to the home of a primary school headmaster and killed his entire family. And on June 16, an attack on a school killed seven students, two teachers, two soldiers and two extremists. One day later, another attack killed at least nine students sitting at their desks.

In India on Sunday, a Buddhist temple in Bodh Gaya was attacked as nine blasts left five people injured. Two other bombs, one near an 80 foot Buddha statue and another at a bus stop, were defused by police. The attack on this particular temple is especially significant as it is believed by Buddhists that Lord Buddha had attained enlightenment there under a tree on the premises. Additionally, Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama makes frequent trips to Bodh Gaya and Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa had visited it six months back. A total of 52 countries have established their monasteries here.

There has been tremendous violence between both Muslims and Buddhists lately however, and this attack is thought to be an act of vengeance for the thousands of Muslims killed in Myanmar. Both Buddhists and Muslims have been killing each other, and now groups like Al Qaeda and Lashkar-e-Toiba are using the attacks to incite more violence worldwide.

Earlier this year, Muslim groups brutally attacked 76 Hindu families and five Hindu temples in Bangladesh. Their houses were burned, and the families were left helpless. Muslim violence in Bangladesh has led to the slaughter of many Hindus and the rape of Hindu women.

In Egypt, Coptic Christians have been the target of Muslims for many years, and their situation worsened under Morsi as anti-blasphemy convictions against Christians became more and more prevalent. But that was just the tip of the iceberg. Christians are kidnapped and forced to convert to Islam, women are raped, Christians are murdered, and churches are burned. Now with the violent protests, ousting of Morsi and military taking over, rapes, beatings and murders are happening on a daily basis. Just the other day, Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda supporting militants Read more…

Exposed: The Final Conversation Between Islamist President Morsi And The Egyptian Military

07/10/2013 Leave a comment

Islamist President Mohammed Morsi vowed to “make it war” and only cared about himself and the Islamist agenda. But then again, that’s the attitude that he and the Muslim Brotherhood have always had from the very beginning

By Raymond Ibrahim, Frontpage Mag – “On July 5, El Watan (‘the nation’), one of Egypt’s most popular newspapers, published the final dialogue between General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and Dr. Muhammad Morsi, which took place on Tuesday July 2, a few hours before Morsi’s final speech to the Egyptian people.  A reporter who was taken to an adjacent room was allowed to witness and transcribe their conversation from a TV screen.  I translate the entire speech as it appears on El Watan below:

Exchange Between Morsi and Sisi

Morsi: What’s the military’s position concerning what’s going on?  Is it just going to stand by watching?  Shouldn’t it protect the legitimacy?

Sisi: What legitimacy?  The entire army is with the will of the people, and the overwhelming majority of people, according to documented reports, don’t want you.

Morsi: My supporters are many and they won’t be silent.

Sisi: The army will not allow anyone to destroy the nation, no matter what happens.

Morsi: What if I don’t want to leave?

Sisi: The matter is settled and no longer up to you.  Try to leave with your dignity and tell those whom you call supporters to go back to their homes in order to prevent bloodshed, instead of threatening the people through them.

Morsi: But this way it will be a military coup, and America won’t leave you alone.

Sisi: The people concern us, not America.  And since you’ve started to talk this way, I’ll talk to you candidly.  We have evidence to condemn you and to condemn many governmental officials of compromising Egypt’s national security.  The judiciary will have its say and you will all be judged before the whole people.

Morsi: Okay, can you permit me to make a few phone calls and then afterwards I’ll decide on what to do?

Sisi: You are not permitted; but we can let you check up on your family only.

Morsi: Am I imprisoned or what?

Sisi: You are under arrest from this moment.

Morsi: Don’t think the Brotherhood is going to stand by if I leave office.  They will set the world on fire. Read more…

Tensions Rise: Egypt Summons Turkish Ambassador In Protest Against ‘Ankara’s Interference In Egyptian Affairs’

07/10/2013 Leave a comment

Does the “king of the North” wish to see the old “king of the South” back in the reins of power? It certainly looks that way, and Egypt’s new leadership isn’t taking too kindly to it.  Although we are certain where the end ultimately leads, what we are not always certain of are some of the roads that must be trodden to get there. “Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch” …

Daniel 11:40a, “At the time of the end the king of the South will engage him in battle, and the king of the North will storm out against him with chariots and cavalry and a great fleet of ships …”

Friends: Ousted President Morsi with Turkish PM Erdogan

Friends: Ousted President Morsi with Turkish PM Erdogan

By Elad Benari, INN – “Egypt’s foreign ministry summoned Turkey’s ambassador to Cairo on Tuesday, in protest against ‘Ankara’s interference in Egyptian affairs,’ Al Arabiya reported.

The Egyptian move came after Turkey described the overthrow of former president Mohammed Morsi as ‘unacceptable coup’, in a reaction that was seen in Egypt as the strongest reaction from overseas.

On Friday, Turkey’s prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan condemned the military intervention that toppled Morsi as an enemy of democracy.

Erdogan chastised the West for failing to brand the ouster a coup.

Referring to his country’s history of coups, Erdogan warned that such military uprisings come at a heavy price and must not be tolerated.

‘No matter where they are… coups are bad,’ Erdogan said in televised remarks. ‘Coups are clearly enemies of democracy.

‘Those who rely on the guns in their hands, those who rely on the power of the media cannot build democracy…. Democracy can only be built at ballot box,’ said Erdogan, who had forged friendly relations with Morsi during the Egyptian’s one-year in power.

A day earlier, in a rare show of unity, both Erdogan’s ruling AK Party and its opposition Republican People’s Party condemned Morsi’s overthrow.” Read more.

Flashback: Turkish PM Greeted by Cheering Crowds in Cairo, Banners Proclaiming ‘Egypt And Turkey Will Together Become An Islamic Caliphate’ – “Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan continued to make threats against Israel on his arrival in Cairo last night, resulting in a rapturous reception by the crowds. He was surrounded by Egyptian supporters after disembarking from his plane at the airport. Using a prepared amplifier system, Erdoğan spoke to the crowd in Arabic, saying, ‘Salaam aleikum, Egypt and Turkey are one. Peace to the Egyptian people.’ … The welcoming crowd included many members of the Muslim Brotherhood, which supports Hamas. Supporters along the road into Cairo carried Erdoğan’s picture and shouted, ‘Egypt and Turkey will together become an Islamic Caliphate’” Read more.
