May our Heavenly Father receive them into His loving arms …

John 16:2b-3, “… the time is coming when those who kill you will think they are doing a holy service for God. This is because they have never known the Father or Me.”

Morning Star News – “A group of Muslims robbed two Egyptian Christians living in Libya, then tied up and shot them to death after the two Copts refused their demand to convert to Islam, relatives said.

On a rural road in Derna District in northeastern Libya on Wednesday (Sept. 25), a group of Muslims surrounded Waleed Saad Shaker, 25, and Nash’at Shenouda Ishaq, 27, demanded their belongings and started beating them. During the strong-arm robbery, the relatives said, the Muslims demanded that Shaker and Ishaq recite the shahada, the declaration of conversion to Islam. When the two Orthodox Coptic Christians refused, the group of Muslims tied them up and shot them.

Later that day, a shepherd found Shaker and Ishaq in the desert, and they were taken to Derna Hospital. Shaker was dead upon arrival at the hospital, according to a member of Ishaq’s family who requested anonymity. Gamel Saleem, a cousin of Shaker who saw his body, said the skull had been beaten in. Shaker’s death certificate identifies injuries to his head as the cause of death.

Ishaq initially survived the attack, and before he died he was able to give details about the assault to a relative, also resident in Libya. Escorting the body back to Upper Egypt for burial, the relative relayed the details to Ishaq’s family and the Shaker family.

No one has been arrested in connection with the killings. The attack marks the third time in two weeks that a Coptic Christian has been robbed and killed in Derna District, which along with the surrounding region is known as a hotbed of extremist Islamic activity.” Read more.

Yesterday, Arabic media reported that over 100 Christian Copts from Egypt, who appear to have been living and working in Libya, were recently arrested in Ben Ghazi—also on the accusation, or pretext, of being ‘Christian missionaries.’” Read more.

Only a few thousand Christians now remain in Libya and many of them are expatriates. Christian Copts, many from Egypt, have also suffered. In December 2012 two Egyptian Copts were killed in a blast at a Coptic Church in the town of Dafniya …” Read more.

‘Perfectly Round Ball Of Fire’ Reported Over Delaware, ‘I’ve Never Seen Anything That Big’

09/30/2013 8 comments

Delaware Online – “A large fireball was seen streaking through the night sky by at least 21 people – three of them from Delaware – about 7:30 p.m. Sunday. Witnesses reported the sighting on the American Meteor Society’s website.

Middletown-area resident Dan Foraker said he also spotted it, and described the meteor as a ‘perfectly round ball of fire.’

Foraker, who lives near Drawyers Creek off Shallcross Lake Road, said he was sitting outside talking on the phone with his son about the Redskins game, when all of a sudden a ball of fire appeared over the line of trees.

‘I’ve never seen anything that big. I didn’t know if there was a plane going down,’ he said. ‘It lasted for about six seconds and went down behind the trees. I didn’t hear a sound, but I was waiting to hear a loud boom.’

Foraker said he called police and a county officer showed up later and said that the state police helicopter was the only aircraft that had been up in the air about that time.

A supervisor with the New Castle County fire board today said no calls were received about that time and no one was dispatched on any calls for a plane down.

The American Meteor Society, meanwhile, is investigating 21 reports from witnesses who saw this fireball over Washington, D.C., Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Virginia and West Virginia between 7 p.m. and 8:13 p.m.” Read more.

Obama Hanging Hopes For ‘Productive Nuclear Negotiations’ With Iran … On A Phony Fatwa

09/30/2013 13 comments

Obama cites a faked Iranian fatwa banning nuclear weapons while ignoring the one that permits them. Hanging high hopes on hoaxes will do nothing but leave you hanging high and dry. All of Iran’s enemies understand this, except for the only one needed to stop them

Hadith, Al Bukhari 4.268, “Allah’s Prophet [Mohammed] said, ‘War is deceit.’”

Fox News – “President Obama could be hanging his hopes for productive nuclear negotiations with Iran on a hoax, according to one Middle East-focused think tank.

On Friday, Obama cited a ‘fatwa,’ or religious edict, from Iran’s all-powerful Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, banning the pursuit of nuclear weapons.

‘I do believe that there is a basis for a resolution [because] Iran’s Supreme Leader has issued a fatwa against the development of nuclear weapons,’ Obama told reporters.

But although talk of such a fatwa has been around for at least eight years, there’s no evidence it was ever issued, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute, which flatly called the fatwa a hoax. MEMRI claims the phony fatwa is promoted by Iranian diplomats and Turkey’s Islamist prime minister, Recep Erdogan.

‘There is no such fatwa. It is a lie from the Iranians, a deception, and it is tragic that President Obama has endorsed it,’ MEMRI Founder and President Yigal Carmon told

In July, the Iranian website Tasnimnews, which is linked to Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, published an extensive list of 493 fatwas from Khamenei dating back to 2004. None forbade the pursuit of nuclear weapons. Carmon noted that Khamenei in 2012 was asked directly about the morality of pursuing nuclear weapons, and his answer was telling.

The question asked to Khamenei was, in light of a Koran teaching that orders Muslims to ‘prepare against [non-Muslims] whatever you are able of power and of steeds of war by which you may terrify the enemy of Allah,’ is it also ‘forbidden to obtain nuclear weapons, as per your ruling that their use is prohibited?’

Khamenei’s answer, according to MEMRI, was ‘your letter has no jurisprudential aspect. When it has a jurisprudent position, then it will be possible to answer it.’

Carmon said if a fatwa against the pursuit of nuclear weapons existed, Khamenei would have cited it.” Read more.

Journalist: Saudis, Gulf States ‘Shocked’ By Obama-Rouhani Chat – “Israelis are not the only ones concerned with the apparent warming of relations between Iran and the United States; Saudi Arabia has leveled sharp criticism against U.S. President Barack H.

Flashback: Iran’s Ayatollah Khamenei Uses ‘Fatwa’ To Disguise Nuclear Intentions – “New evidence indicates Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, wants nuclear weapons and he created a religious-based ruse to deceive the world into joining new talks. The leader intends to use those talks to buy more time to harden his weapons program, prevent an attack, and persuade world powers to lift sanctions… A just unveiled 2009 internal International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) document summarizes a conversation with then Iran’s president, Ayatollah Khamenei. The ayatollah explained ‘During a [1984] meeting …the spiritual leader Iman Khomeini had decided to reactivate the nuclear program’ [because possessing nuclear weapons] ‘was the only way to secure the very essence of the Islamic revolution from the schemes of its enemies … [and] bring the world under Islamic rule.” Read more.

All Across The Muslim World ‘Christians Are Being Kidnapped, Terrorized, Tortured, Raped And Murdered’

09/30/2013 5 comments

And all for peaceful purposes. It’s the Muslim world’s perverted version of “interfaith outreach” where the only messages speaking loud and clear are all those written in blood …

Qur’an Sura 5:33, “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement”

Qur’an Sura 25:52, “Therefore listen not to the Unbelievers, but strive against them with the utmost strenuousness, with the (Qur’an).”

A blood sacrifice offered to the god of Islam

Kenya: A blood sacrifice offered to the god of Islam

By Simon Kent, Sun News Network – “Just another bloody week for the Christian diaspora.

A church is bombed in Pakistan and 85 people are killed while more than 140 more are maimed. The Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility.

Violence and civil unrest rocks Damascus and Aleppo, forcing Syrian churches to close their doors, possibly forever.

Thousands of elite Philippine troops battle Muslim guerrillas of the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) who raze churches before they occupy the key port of Zamboanga.

Christians in the southern Egyptian town of Dalga are forced to watch as a Muslim mob set fire to an ancient monastery and steal its contents.

All played out against the backdrop of a shopping mall terror attack in Kenya where Muslims are asked to leave before hostages are taken.

Yes, just another instalment of terror that is matched only by the silence of political leaders refusing to speak in support of the persecuted.

From Algeria in the west to Iran in the east and deep into Asia, Christians are being kidnapped, terrorized, tortured, raped and murdered.

Their fate looks to be at risk in the very heartlands that first inspired their faith, as well as in the furthest-flung corners of the globe.

The cause is aggressive Muslim fundamentalists seeking to cleanse Christians from land they have occupied for thousands of years.

Their fate is barely remarked and little acknowledged – with Canada among the honourable exceptions.

Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird has used a variety of stages and occasions to defend Christians along with a host of other persecuted minorities.

Here are a few instances:

‘I stand with Roman Catholic priests and other Christian clergy and their laity, as they are driven underground to worship in China while their leaders are detained,’ he said in 2011.

Here was Baird 12 months later.

‘We (Canada) were the first major country to speak out about the attacks against Egyptian Coptics following the events in Nag Hammadi … and we deplored the New Year’s Eve attacks in Alexandria. And in Iraq, where al-Qaida has driven out many Christians and minorities, we implemented a program to resettle refugees.’

In the latter example, Baird cited Franklin Roosevelt who observed on the eve of global war: ‘Where freedom of religion has been attacked, the attack has come from sources opposed to democracy.’

All sorts of religions are attacked for a variety of reasons, yet Christians appear to be alone as they robustly back their right to exist.

When it comes to specific acts of Muslim-on-Christian violence, the silence is deafening.” Read more.

Nigeria: At Least 15 Christians Killed After Muslim Gunmen Siege Village, Burn Down Homes

09/30/2013 6 comments

For the cause of their most “gracious” and “merciful” deity …

Qur’an Sura 2:191-193, “And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution [of Muslims] is worse than slaughter [of non-Muslims] … fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah.”

Morning Star News – “Muslim herdsmen killed 15 Christians in Nigeria’s Kaduna state Saturday morning (Sept. 28), two days after suspected Islamic extremists in Yobe state killed an Anglican pastor and his son, sources said.

The ethnic Fulani Muslims in Kaduna state in central Nigeria, where attacks against Christians have increased markedly in the past year with the aid of outside Muslim extremists, invaded predominantly Christian Zangang village in the Kaura Local Government Area from the east and south, ‘killing the villagers and burning down houses,’ said the Rev. Yakubu Gandu Nkut.

‘The Fulani Muslim herdsmen lay siege to the village, while at the same time attacking Christians there using guns to kill and burn down their houses,’ Nkut told Morning Star News. ‘They attacked the village between the hours of 6 and 8 a.m.’

Nkut, pastor of an Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) congregation in Zankan, about five kilometers (three miles) from Zangang, said the gunmen also had machetes and knives. While a Kaduna state police spokesman said 11 were killed, Nkut gave the names of 15 Christians slain: Christopher Bakwap, Benjamen Ganda, Ladi Madugu, Adam Yakubu, Julius Barnabas, Garba Kushuwah, Martha Musa, Michael Aboi, Gaje Lufuwai, Kefas Yusfu, Dauda Yusu, Joshua Bikau, Andrew Bikai, Sheying Immanuel and Gideon Adamu.

Kumai Badu, chairman of Kaura Local Government Council, told Morning Star News by phone that 15 Christians were killed, several others were wounded and hundreds were displaced. Those who have fled have taken refuge in Manchok, he said.

The attack was the third this year by Muslim herdsmen on Zangang village, sources said. In those assaults, Muslim Fulani herdsmen killed ‘several’ Christians and also destroyed homes, they said.” Read more.

David Wood Explains The Nairobi Mall Massacre (Video)

By David Wood, Answering Muslims – “Western leaders and the media assure us that the recent terrorist attack at Westgate Mall in Nairobi, Kenya has nothing to do with Islam, and that, by killing unbelievers, the terrorist group al-Shabaab is violating the commands of Allah and Muhammad. But what happens when we open the Qur’an to see what it teaches? We find that Islamic history has been repeating itself for fourteen centuries.” (Source).

A Rider Called Death: Muslims Detonate Powerful Car Bomb In Busy Pakistani Market, Dozens Killed

09/29/2013 4 comments

For peaceful purposes. There was “no immediate claim of responsibility”, but does there really need to be? …

CBC News – “A car bomb exploded on a crowded street in northwestern Pakistan Sunday, killing 37 people in the third blast to hit the troubled city of Peshawar in a week, officials said.

The latest explosion in Peshawar appeared to have been a bomb planted in a parked car and detonated by remote control, said police officer Zahid Khan. It went off in a crowded market, which is the city’s oldest bazaar near a mosque and a police station, officials said.

The blast damaged the mosque and nearby shops and caused many vehicles to go up in flames, said police officer Nawaz Khan.

The city’s top government official, Sahibzada Anees, said 37 had died while 75 were under treatment at the city’s Lady Reading Hospital.

Such attacks in Peshawar, which is the provincial capital of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, have claimed over 130 lives since last Sunday when two suicide bombers blew themselves up in a crowd of worshippers at a church, killing 85 people.

Then on Friday 19 people died when a bomb planted on a bus carrying government employees home for the weekend exploded in the Peshawar outskirts.

The bomb that went off Sunday was some 300 meters (yards) from the All Saints Church, which was the scene of last Sunday’s carnage.

A book shop owner, Nazar Ali, had just opened his shop when the bomb went off.

‘It was a huge blast that was followed by fire in vehicles. Thick black smoke covered the air and splinters spread all over. I saw people lying dead and bleeding all over,’ he said.

Many of the old buildings used in the historic Qissa Khawani market are constructed from wood which easily caught on fire when the bomb went off, said senior police officer Shafqat Malik.

Another man was shopping for breakfast when the bomb exploded.

‘Suddenly there was a huge bang and I fell on the ground,’ said Adnan Hussain, speaking from the hospital. ‘My cousin Rizwan is dead and the other is critical.’

One man at the hospital said that 13 members of a single family were among the dead. Mohammad Alam said that they had come to Peshawar from a nearby village to invite him to their son’s marriage. He said they were in a van near the station when the bomb exploded.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility. The Sunni militant group Jundullah claimed responsibility for the church attack, saying it targeted Christians to avenge the deaths of Muslims killed by U.S. drone strikes.” Read more.

By Michael Snyder, The Truth Wins – “You are about to read some of the most shocking quotes that Barack Obama has ever uttered in public.  A few of these have been widely circulated, but most of them are very obscure.  Even though he claims to be a Christian, throughout his political career Obama has repeatedly attacked traditional Biblical Christianity and he has a very long history of anti-Christian actions.  In public speeches he has repeatedly cast doubt on the Bible, he has repeatedly stated that he does not believe that Jesus is necessary for salvation, and he has consistently said that he believes that all ‘people of faith’ believe in the same God.  At the same time, Obama has always referred to Muhammed as ‘the Prophet’, he has always expressed great love and respect for Islam, and he has even removed all references to Islam from terror training materials used by federal government agencies.  So what in the world does ‘the leader of the free world’ actually believe?  Read the quotes below and decide for yourself…

Separating The ‘Kafirs’ From The Muslims

09/29/2013 1 comment

Muslims today separate the “kuffar” from themselves and curse them with a sentence of death. But a Day is coming when the measure that they have used will be measured to them, and a separation of a much different nature will take place between all those who have received eternal life through faith in Christ and Him crucified, and all those condemned to the Second Death for rejecting Him. My plea to any Muslim who may be reading: Repent now and choose this day whom you will serve. Tomorrow may be too late

Matthew 25:31-34, 41, “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. All the nations [ethnos – ethnic groups, peoples, heathens, Gentiles] will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world … Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels …”

By Bill Warner, American Thinker – “When the al Shabaab jihadi group from Somalia attacked the mall in Kenya, they gathered the crowd together and asked who were Muslims and let them go.  According to the media, they then started killing the non-Muslims who were left.  But ‘non-Muslims’ is not the word what the terrorists would have used.  No, they would have called them Kafirs.  (Actually, they would have called them the Arabic plural of kafirkuffar.  ‘Kafirs’ is the standard English plural form.)

Why did members of al Shabaab do this?  Why did they ask the Muslims to leave and keep the Kafirs and start killing them?  Let’s start with the word ‘terrorists.’  Members of al Shabaab are not terrorists; they are jihadists, or mujahedeen.  That is what they call themselves.

So what difference does it make which words we use?  It makes all the difference in the world.  You cannot think precisely with imprecise words, and a Kafir is much more than non-Muslim.

The word ‘non-Muslim’ does not imply anything, except not being a believer in Islam.

Kafir, on the other hand, has enormous implications.  Kafir is the actual word that the Koran uses for a non-Muslim.  Indeed, one of the many remarkable things about the Koran is that over half of its text is devoted to the Kafir.  Think about that: most of the Koran is not about how to be a Muslim, but about the Kafir.  Every single verse about the Kafir is not just bad, but terrible.  Allah hates Kafirs and plots and schemes against them.  The cruelest punishments await the Kafir in hell, but who cares about that?  The real problem is what is promised to the Kafir in this life — torture, hatred, death, ridicule, rape, enslavement, political domination, and deception.

It is the same with ‘mujahedeen’ or ‘jihadist’ as opposed to ‘militant’ or ‘terrorist.’  The words ‘militant’ and ‘terrorist’ do not tell anything about the motivation of the militant or terrorist — only that he uses violence.

Notice that the words ‘non-Muslim’ and ‘terrorist’ are not related to each other; they stand alone.  There is no implication of one by the other.  But that is not true about ‘Kafir’ and ‘jihad.’  Jihad is carried out only against Kafirs.  Jihad implies Kafir, and vice versa.

Jihad and Kafir are part of a system of Islamic politics.  Mohammed preached the religion of Islam for 13 years and garnered 150 followers.  When he turned to politics and jihad, he died ruler of all of Arabia, and every Arab was a Muslim.  The religion of Islam was a failure, and Islam triumphed by the use of politics and jihad — war against the Kafir.

Islamic doctrine is found in the Koran, Sunna (Mohammed), and sharia law and divides all of humanity into Muslim and Kafir.  There is no middle ground.  Unfortunately, both Christian and Jewish leaders have bought into the fiction that Read more…

Nigeria: Dozens Of Students Massacred For The Cause Of ‘Allah’ While They Slept In College Dorm

09/29/2013 3 comments

They’ve already declared their intent and their intended targets

Qur’an Sura 9:29, “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of [Islam], (even if they are) of the People of the Book [Christians] …”

Update: This time the students appeared to be mostly Muslim. But as is often the case, devout Muslims will kill less devout Muslims simply because they didn’t consider them committed enough to the cause of “Allah” …

Qur’an Sura 4:76, Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah …”

Qur’an Sura 2:216, “Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.”

The Guardian – “Suspected Islamic extremists have gunned down dozens of students as they slept in their dormitories during a night-time attack on an agricultural college in north-east Nigeria, the school’s provost said.

As many as 50 students may have been killed in the assault that began at about 1am local time on Sunday, said Molima Idi Mato, provost of the Yobe State College of Agriculture in Gujba.

‘They attacked our students while they were sleeping, they opened fire at them,’ he said, but could not give an exact death toll as security forces still were recovering bodies from the college.

The Nigerian military had collected 42 bodies and transported 18 injured students to Damaturu specialist hospital, according to a military intelligence official.

The school’s other 1,000 students fled the college, about 25 miles (40km) north of Damaturu town, where there have been similar attacks on schools as part of a continuing Islamist uprising, said Mato.

He said there were no security forces stationed at the college despite government assurances that they would be deployed. The state education chief, Mohammed Lamin, held a news conference two weeks ago in which he urged all schools to reopen and promised protection from soldiers and police.

Most schools in the area closed after militants on 6 July killed 29 pupils and a teacher, burning some alive in their hostels, at Mamudo, outside Damaturu.” Read more.

Examiner – “Ohioans were dazzled by a bright flash of blue light in the night sky on September 27, 2013, in southern Ohio around 11:30 p.m., eastern standard time. Could it have been a meteorite or a satellite predicted to crash to earth on Friday?

A fireball reportedly hit near a home in northern Adams County, Ohio, a few miles outside the city of Peebles causing a house fire. Those reports are unconfirmed. The six alarm fire left fireman battling the blaze into the early hours of the morning. It is unknown at this time if the residents made it out safely.

A neighbor said the meteor crossed over the city and hit near the Locust Grove Cemetery just four miles from the Great Serpent Effigy Mound

Update: As of the morning of September 28, 2013, a home outside of Peebles, Ohio, in the Locust Grove area of Adams County burned to the ground last night, the two residents of the home, an elderly couple, Jane and Lyle Lambert, died as a result of smoke inhalation. The fire is believed to be caused from the meteor or pieces of the heated meteor that hit the home.” Read more.

‘Surprising’: Reports Of Fireball Flood In From Multiple States, September Sees Record Number Of Sightings

09/29/2013 1 comment

Earth Sky – “The American Meteor Society (AMS) has reported at least 373 reports of another bright fireball – a very bright meteor, likely a small chunk of natural incoming space debris – over the U.S. last night (September 27, 2013). These reports followed a similar event over approximately the same area the day before (September 26). The AMS called the coincidence of two bright fireballs, or bright meteors, spotted over approximately the same region on consecutive days ‘surprising.’ Witnesses from Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, North Carolina, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, Wisconsin and West Virginia reported a bright light moving across the night sky on September 27 at around 11:33 p.m. local time, according to the AMS.

Fireball might sound ominous, but it is just the word astronomers use to mean bright meteor. As seen from a whole-Earth perspective, fireballs are seen often. It’s unusual to have two appear on consecutive nights over the same region, however.

September 2013 has been a busy month for sightings of bright meteors, according to the AMS. Last night’s event marks the 14th fireball sighting with at least 25 witnesses in September, the most ever since the AMS started recording sightings online, they say.” Read more.

7 Midwest States See Fireball Streak Across Sky – “Scientists have said that the meteor is similar to the one that was reported to have streaked across the sky over Russia earlier this year. One eye witness from Fort Worth described the meteor as ‘bright blue green-like lightning with what appeared to be a fire-like tail glowing red orange.’ The eye witness added that the light from the meteor was ‘extremely close and lit up neighboring rooftops.’ Another eye witness described: ‘After it exploded, the meteor got brighter and didn’t burn out until it was close to the horizon.'” Read more.
