Islamist Rebels Destroy Aleppo Church

Islamist Rebels Destroy Aleppo Church

By Raymond Ibrahm – “While U.S. leaders continue pushing for war against the Syrian government, today ‘Al-Qaeda-linked rebels,’ reports AP, ‘launched an assault on a regime-held Christian mountain village in the densely populated west of Syria and new clashes erupted near the capital, Damascus, on Wednesday…  In the attack on the village of Maaloula, rebels commandeered a mountaintop hotel and nearby caves and shelled the community below, said a nun, speaking by phone from a convent in the village. She spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals.’

Arabic news agency Al Hadath gives more information concerning this latest terror attack on Syria’s Christians, specifically how the al-Qaeda linked rebels ‘terrorized the Christians, threatening to be avenged on them after the triumph of the revolution.

Thus al-Qaeda terrorists eagerly await U.S. assistance against the Syrian government, so they can subjugate if not slaughter Syria’s Christians, secularists, and non-Muslims — even as the Obama administration tries to justify war on Syria by absurdly evoking the ‘human rights’ of Syrians on the one hand, and lying about al-Qaeda’s presence in Syria on the other.” Source – Raymond Ibrahim.

Flashback: Islamist Rebels In Syria May Be Using American-Provided Weapons To Slaughter Christians – “As if ‘Benghazi-gate’ was not sufficiently horrific, in a cruel twist of fate, American-backed Islamic insurgents in Syria are now thought to be using their CIA-supplied weaponry to kill Christians. Video footage of a November first attack posted on YouTube shows members of the ‘Free Syrian Army’ executing 28 men that were initially claimed in French Press reports to be members of the Syrian army. However, the President of the US-based, Christian relief group, the Religious Freedom Coalition, William Murray, claims to have positively identified at least two of the victims as belonging to the Syrian counterpart of his relief ministry, a claim supported by an independent human rights activist.” Read more.

Flashback: The Syrian Revolution’s Dire Threat To Christians: ‘If An Islamic State Becomes The Reality … Expect A Full-Out Genocide Against Christians’ – “The Syrian Revolution geared toward the establishment of an Islamic state. As this revolution’s fire burns, therefore, it is no surprise that Islamists are massacring Christians. If an Islamic state becomes the reality in Syria, and the developments reveal that that will soon be the case, we can expect a full-out genocide against Christians to be implemented by the Islamists in Syria. The fall of Assad will mean a mass cleansing of anybody who believes in the Bible, since the Assad regime protects the Christian population.” Read more.

Flashback: Muslim Group: ‘Christianity Should Be Destroyed And Wiped From The Face Of The Earth’, It Is ‘Evil’ and ‘Demonic’ – “A Muslim group has released its plan to ‘wipe Christianity from the face of the earth,’ Islamize the West and establish an Islamic system of world government – placing those who resist ‘under a police state.’… ‘Islamic Power has returned upon the face of the earth and the Revived Global Caliphate has set eyes on the West to once and for all rid the world of Christianity and there is nothing you can do about it,’ al-Mohammedi said. He makes his objective clear.” Read more.

Killing Christians For Ransom In Egypt – And The Indifference Of The Western Media

09/04/2013 2 comments

Psalm 7:9, “Oh, let the evil of the wicked come to an end, and may you establish the righteous — you who test the minds and hearts, O righteous God!”

By Raymond Ibrahim, FrontPage Mag – “Not only are the churches, monasteries, and institutions of Egypt’s Christians under attack by the Muslim Brotherhood and its supporters—nearly 100 now have been torched, destroyed, ransacked, etc.—but Christians themselves are under attack all throughout Egypt, with practically zero coverage in Western media.

Days ago, for example, Copts held a funeral for Wahid Jacob, a young Christian deacon who used to serve in St. John the Baptist Church, part of the Qusiya diocese in Asyut, Egypt.  He was kidnapped on August 21 by ‘unknown persons’ who demanded an exorbitant ransom from his impoverished family—1,200,000 Egyptian pounds (equivalent to $171,000 USD).  Because his family could not raise the sum, he was executed—his body dumped in a field where it was later found.  The priest who conducted his funeral service said that the youth’s body bore signs of severe torture.

In fact, kidnapping young Christians and holding them for ransom has become increasingly common in Egypt.  Last April, 10-year-old Sameh George, another deacon, or altar boy, at St. Abdul Masih (‘Servant of Christ’) Church in Minya, Egypt, was also abducted by ‘unknown persons’ while on his way to church to participate in Holy Pascha prayers leading up to Orthodox Easter. His parents said that it was his custom to go to church and worship in the evening, but when he failed to return, and they began to panic, they received an anonymous phone call from the kidnappers, informing them that they had the Christian child in their possession, and would execute him unless they received 250,000 Egyptian pounds in ransom money.

If those in Egypt being kidnapped and sometimes killed for ransom money are not all deacons, they are almost always church-attending Christians.  Last April, for example, another Coptic Christian boy, 12-year-old Abanoub Ashraf, was also kidnapped right in front of his church, St. Paul Church in Shubra al-Khayma district. His abductors, four men, put a knife to his throat, dragged him to their car, opened fire on the church, and then sped away. Later they called the boy’s family demanding a large amount of money to ransom child’s life.

The hate for these Christians—who are seen as no better than dogs—is such that sometimes after being paid their ransom, the Muslim abductors still slaughter them anyway.  This was the fate of 6-year-old Cyril Joseph, who was kidnapped last May.  In the words of the Arabic report, the boy’s ‘family is in tatters after paying 30,000 pounds to the abductor, who still killed the innocent child and threw his body into the toilet of his home, where the body, swollen and moldy, was exhumed.’

As for Christian girls, they are even more vulnerable than Christian boys and disappear with great frequency.  As an International Christian Concern report puts it Read more…

Report: US-Backed Terrorists In Syria Behead 24 Civilians Including One-Month Old Baby

09/04/2013 2 comments

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

And those who believe in the rule of law. And those who fight against Islamic extremism. And those who are not as devoted to Mohammed as you. And infidel babies. And disobedient women. And cats. And …

By Global Research News – “Al-Qaeda linked terrorists in Syria have beheaded all 24 Syrian passengers traveling from Tartus to Ras al-Ain in northeast of Syria, among them a mother and a 40-days old infant.

Gunmen from the terrorist Islamic State of Iraq and Levant stopped the bus on the road in Talkalakh and killed everyone before setting the bus on fire.

According to media reports, the attack was carried out because the passengers who were from three different villages in Ras al-Ain, supported anti-terrorist Kurdish groups which were formed recently to defend Kurdish population against anti-Syria terrorists.

Bodies of a mother and her 40-days infant were also seen among the dead, which were recognized by their relatives.

Syrian Kurdish leader Saleh Muslim warned on Friday that the Kurd minority is facing an ethnic cleansing by al-Qaeda terrorists.

While there is no end in sight to the bloody foreign-fueled conflict in Syria, another front has been formed between the Kurdish militia and extremist militants in Northern Syria.

Al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorist groups operating in the country, including the al-Nusra Front, are trying to capture Kurdish territories and make them part of a state they want to create in the region.

Following deadly attacks on Kurdish regions in recent months, groups of Kurdish militia were formed to protect their people.

Anti-Syria armed groups continue to target civilians amid US threats against Syrian army and government which have made militants find it easier to widen their attacks.

Following worldwide criticism, US President Barack Obama delayed an imminent military strike against Syria on August 31, sending the matter to the Congress to get more support.” Source – GlobalResearch.

Syria: Islamist Rebels Attack Christian Village Of Maaloula

Update: Islamist Rebels Attacking Christian Town Enter Man’s Home, ‘They Tried To Force Him To Convert To Islam’

Update 2: Rebels Attack Christian Homes, Churches, Many Feared Dead, ‘Convert To Islam Or You Will Be Beheaded’

By KARIN LAUB and SARAH DiLORENZO, Associated Press – “Al-Qaida-linked rebels launched an assault on a regime-held Christian mountain village in the densely populated west of Syria and new clashes erupted near the capital, Damascus, on Wednesday — part of a brutal battle of attrition each side believes it can win despite more than two years of deadlock.

In the attack on the village of Maaloula, rebels commandeered a mountaintop hotel and nearby caves and shelled the community below, said a nun, speaking by phone from a convent in the village. She spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals.

With the world focused on possible U.S. military action against Syria, there were new signs of fragmentation in rebel ranks, with a small group of jihadis from Russia announcing it has broken away from an umbrella group known as Jabhat al-Nusra.

The Syria conflict, which began with a popular uprising in March 2011, has been stalemated, and it’s not clear if U.S. military strikes over the regime’s alleged chemical weapons use would change that. President Barack Obama has said he seeks limited pinpoint action to deter future chemical attacks, not regime change…

On Wednesday morning, rebels from the al-Qaida-linked Jabhat al-Nusra group launched the assault on predominantly Christian Maaloula, some 60 kilometers (40 miles) northeast of Damascus, according to a Syrian government official and the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, an anti-regime group.

At the start of the attack, an al-Nusra fighter blew himself up at a regime checkpoint at the entrance to the village, said the Observatory, which collects information from a network of anti-regime activists.

The explosion was followed by fighting between the rebels and regime forces. Eventually, the rebels seized the checkpoint and disabled two tanks and an armored personnel carrier, the Observatory said. At least eight regime soldiers were killed in the fighting, the group said.

The nun said the rebels had taken over the Safir hotel atop a mountain overlooking the village and where shelling from there. ‘It’s a war. It has been going from 6 a.m. in the morning,’ she said from her convent.

The said the convent houses 13 nuns and 27 orphans. She said around 80 people from the village had come to the convent for safety.” Read more.

This reported attack comes shortly after intense fighting in the city of al-Qusseir over the weekend, in which Bashar Al-Assad’s forces inflicted heavy casualties on the rebels.” Read more.

Enemy Mine: Congress To Approve Syrian Attack Despite Mounting Evidence Assad Was Set-Up?

09/04/2013 3 comments

In Syria, the enemy of my enemy is definitely no friend of ours

Proverbs 12:15a, “The way of a fool is right in his own eyes …”

Joels Trumpet – “First, WND reports on comments made by Rush Limbaugh Tuesday on his radio program, in which he claims to have heard personally from several insiders who are relaying to him the mounting evidence that indeed the Assad regime was framed. Further, another article written by the highly respected and credentialed Israeli-American scholar, Youssef Bodansky calls into question not only the American government’s story regarding the Syrian crisis, but also the complicity of the American government in the whole affair. According to Bodansky, there is mounting evidence that the release of nerve gas in Damascus was a well-coordianed event potentially involving Qatar, Turkey, the US, and Jabhat al-Nusra (the al-Qaeda affiliated terrorists or ‘rebels’), all of whom want to see the removal of the Assad regime. This information if true, is beyond damning of the Obama administration.

And once again, I would like to call everyone’s attention to the repeated, though very poorly reasoned view (that that seems to be dominating the discussion in the Western media), that if Assad did indeed use gas, the US must by respond militarily. I find this claim to be extremely poorly reasoned on moral and military terms. I am grateful for the few voices such as Sarah Palin who do seem to have thought through the ramifications of any military action in Syria. Palin, on Friday spoke out and strongly condemned the Obama admin for its poorly reasoned defense of engaging the Syrian government. Palin’s comments can be read in their entirety here:


“So we’re bombing Syria because Syria is bombing Syria? And I’m the idiot?” – Sarah Palin

* President Obama wants America involved in Syria’s civil war pitting the antagonistic Assad regime against equally antagonistic Al Qaeda affiliated rebels. But he’s not quite sure which side is doing what, what the ultimate end game is, or even whose side we should be on. Haven’t we Read more…

Israel: Muslims On Temple Mount Attack Jewish Visitors Following Call To Protect Al Aqsa Mosque

For irrationally paranoid peaceful purposes …

Inscribed: "God is only one God.  Far be it from his glory that he should have a son."

Inscribed: “God is only one God. Far be it from his glory that he should have a son.”

By Kochava Rozenbaum, INN – “Police forces were dispatched on Wednesday to break up Muslim stone throwers who were targeting Jewish visitors on the Temple Mount (Har Habayit).

As soon as stones were thrown and riots broke out, police forces stepped in to make arrests.

Security forces were prepared for a riot as this incident follows renewed incitement by Islamic Movement leader Sheikh Raed Salah, who called for Muslims to physically prevent Jews from visiting the Temple Mount last week.

Yesterday, the leader of the northern branch of the Islamic Movement in Israel was arrested on charges of ‘incitement against Israel and regarding the Temple Mount,’ and is currently being questioned by police.

This morning’s attack on Jewish visitors is likely connected to Salah’s claim last week to his followers that Israel is planning to ‘break in’ to the Temple Mount, on which the Islamic Al Aqsa compound is located, built atop the ruins of two Jewish Temples.

After warning of the alleged ‘danger’ of increased Jewish prayer at the site, Salah called on Muslims from across Israel – from the Negev and Galilee, Akko and Haifa – to descend on the Temple Mount to prevent the ‘dangerous mass invasion into Al Aqsa’ with their bodies.” Read more.

Flashback: Israel: Muslims Mortified After Thirsty Jewish Child Drinks From Muslim Water Fountain On Temple Mount – “A status update posted Sunday on the popular Arabic ‘Damascus Gate Now’ Facebook page shows a close-up of a Jewish child drinking from a water fountain atop the Temple Mount, with accompanying text attacking the child, accusing him of acting with ‘audacity and boldness,’ as a ‘thief’ stealing water from the mosque. The page, which boasts a surprising 127,000 ‘likes,’ writes: ‘After the departure of Ramadan…in poured the Zionists,’ adding, ‘the thief steals from our mosque to drink.’” Read more.

Flashback: Al-Aqsa Group Says Temple Mount Is An Islamic Site, Demands Jewish Prayers Cease Because They’re ‘Defiling The Holiness’ Of Western Wall – “An Israeli Arab group, ‘The Al-Aqsa Heritage Institute,’ on Thursday issued a statement demanding that Israel halt its plans to bring more Jews to the Kotel (Western Wall) – which, the group claims, is holy not to Jews, but to Muslims. In fact, the group says, Israel is ‘defiling the holiness of the site’ by conducting Jewish prayers there. In Jewish tradition, the Kotel is the outer retaining wall of the Holy Temple, which stood on the Temple Mount, approximately at the same location as the Al-Aqsa Mosque… In Islamic legend, however, the Kotel is a Muslim site – famous as the wall that Muhammad used to tie up his donkey when he ascended to heaven on his ‘night journey’ from the Temple Mount.” Read more.

Iranian Government Launches Public Campaign To Halt The Spread Of Christianity

09/04/2013 Leave a comment

No sea in the world can douse the Refiner’s eternal flame. May the Spirit of God spread like wildfire and draw more to Christ throughout Iran and beyond …

Matthew 11:28-30, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

By BosNewsLife – “Iran’s Islamic leadership has launched a public campaign to halt the rapid spread of Christianity among Iranians, BosNewsLife learned Monday, September 2.

The government’s think-tank and the Iranian intelligence service are organizing meetings aimed at debating the ‘conversion from Islam’ and to analyze why especially Iranian youth convert to Christianity, well-informed Iranian Christians said.

One of the first gatherings was reportedly attended by experts from France and Italy. A follow-up meeting has reportedly been scheduled for September 6 in the influential Sarcheshmeh Cultural Center.

The events come at a time when at least 13 Christians were detained across the Tabriz, Isfahan and Tehran areas in the past six weeks, said Elam Ministries, a mission group founded by senior Iranian church leaders.

Mohabat News, an agency of activists and Christians, isn’t surprised about the government campaign involving meetings aimed at ‘distorting’ public opinion. ‘It seems great crackdowns on churches and extraordinary waves of arrest of Iranian pastors and Christian converts have not been effective,’ the agency commented in a statement to BosNewsLife.

‘Christianity is spreading in Iran rapidly…The increasing growth of house-churches in the country and the tendency of Iranian youth and their families to convert from Islam has turned into a major concern for the security organizations, especially Shi’ite Islamic clerics.’

However, ‘The question is, do these expensive meetings, with especially hand-picked foreign guests, help the Islamic regime to interrupt the work that God has started among Iranians and dissuade Iranians from giving their hearts to Jesus Christ?’, wondered Mohabat News.

Elam Ministries doesn’t think so. ‘In 1979, there were less than 500 known Christians from a Muslim background in Iran. Today the most conservative estimate is that there are at least 100,000 believers in the nation,’ it said in an assessment.

Yet the mission group acknowledged that living as a devoted Christian can be dangerous.

It said a fresh crackdown on Christian converts, began in Tabriz last month when three men, Farshid Modares, Aval Samad Kazemi and Hamid Reza, were detained on July 10 following raids on their homes.” Read more.

Canada: Muslim Cleric Calls For Sharia Law Amputations & Stoning Against Criminals, Adulterers

09/04/2013 6 comments

Yet again we bear witness to the fact that, even today, the intent of a barbaric 7th-century Islamic ideology continues to work towards the alteration of non-Islamic law …

Daniel 7:25a, He will speak out against the Most High and wear down the saints of the Highest One, and he will intend to make alterations in times and in law …”

By Kochava Rozenbaum, INN – “A Shiite Muslim Cleric, Dr. Khalil Tabatabai, stated that in the war against crime, amputation of a thief’s hand, as dictated by Muslim law, is more economic and more effective than imprisonment.

Shalom Toronto reported Tuesday that Dr. Tabatabai, who teaches courses in Islamic law at Shiite Islamic Institutions in Montreal, argued in one of his lectures about the justification of Islamic penal code.

There is a significant economic advantage to the application of Muslim law in regards to the amputation of a thief’s hand, as well as the stoning of adulterers, the doctor said.

Tabatabai pointed out that it would save the government and taxpayers a lot of money if the judicial system went according to Muslim law.

According Tabatabai, the death penalty is imposed on someone who steals money or property located in a secure spot by use of weaponry.

This contrasts to someone who steals in broad daylight, and is punished by having his hands or legs amputated. Tabatabai said that this serves as a deterrent for future crimes in the society.

The doctor also gave arguments in favor of the death penalty in cases of adultery, and lashes in the case of imbibing alcohol or spreading libel. Stoning and crucifixion are other prescribed punishments in Islamic law.

Although, some may find these comments controversial, public figures like Justin Trudeau, a contender for Prime Minister of Canada, ignore warning signs about radical views or actions attributed to some Islamic organizations, arguing that the Muslim community cherishes the very same values that all Canadians appreciate.” Source – INN.

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’… In every facet of daily life a Muslim’s 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. But take a look at the Islamic world today. Is it exemplified by peace and justice and social harmony because of ‘Allah’s laws’? To the contrary …” Read more.
