If he appeals again he might be set free. After all, under Islamic law, the woman is always the one to blame

Revelation 9:21, “And they did not repent of their murders … or their sexual immorality …”

Emirates 24/7 – “A Saudi court sentenced a steward in the Gulf Kingdom’s national airlines to four years in prison after he was convicted of raping an Australian passenger during flight.

The passenger of Lebanese origin has told court in the central town of Buraidah the crew member followed her to the water closet and raped her inside while on a flight to the Kingdom two years ago.

A court had earlier sentenced the steward, in his 40s, to 10 years in jail but an appeals court reduced the verdict to eight years. Another court cut the sentence to four years this week.

Sabq newspaper quoted defence lawyer Suleiman Al Khareef as saying there was no evidence the defendant raped the woman and passengers who testified in court said they were not aware of any rape on board.” Source – Emirates 24/7.

She displayed her beauty to the entire world … Strapless, backless, sleeveless, nothing but satanic skirts, slit skirts, translucent blouses, miniskirts, tight jeans: all this to tease man and appeal to his carnal nature.” Read more.

Flashback: Saudi Cleric: Giving Women Equal Rights Sends Shivers Down Your Spine And Makes Your Hair Stand On End – “[The UN’s Convention on Elimination of Discrimination Against Women] means the elimination of all types of discrimination against women. In other words, it means complete and total equality between men and women. Allah says: ‘And the male is not like the female.’ The danger in this agreement lies in its being an international agreement. That means, according to the tyrannical international law, that it supercedes all local constitutions… Reading the articles of this agreement, dear brothers, sends shivers down your spine, and makes your hair stand on end, due to its hideous nature … Anyone contemplating this agreement knows full well that this is World War III … Anyone who reads this sinful, infidel CEDAW agreement will see clearly that whoever promoted this agreement, followed it, or helped it come into being has renounced Islam and declared war against Allah and his shari’a.” Read more.

‘Utter Cruelty’: Reporter Documents Islamist Beheading In Syria, ‘The Crowd Began Cheering, Everyone Was Happy’

09/12/2013 8 comments

Jeremiah 5:29, “‘Should I not punish them for this?’ declares the LORD. ‘Should I not avenge myself on such a nation as this?'”

If the words of Jeremiah rang true against the rebelliousness of an unfaithful Israel, how much more will the Lord surely punish the wickedness of this “harlot”? Warning: The link following the excerpt contains images that may be extremely disturbing to some …

Psalms 94:3, 21, 23, “How long, LORD, will the wicked, how long will the wicked be jubilant? … The wicked band together against the righteous and condemn the innocent to death… He will repay them for their sins and destroy them for their wickedness; the LORD our God will destroy them.”

By Patrick Witty, TIME – “All wars are vicious, but the civil war in Syria seems every day to set new standards for brutality. As the fighting rages in its third year, increasing numbers of atrocities are committed by soldiers and fighters from forces loyal to the regime of President Bashar Assad, as well as armed rebels and Islamic militants from the numerous, loosely aligned groups opposing Assad. The violence is frequently sectarian in nature, with fighters claiming they act in defense of their faith, be it Sunni, Alawite, Shiite or any of the other sects that contribute to Syria’s religious landscape.

The perpetrators of atrocities themselves often use digital cameras or smartphones to photograph or film their acts of torture and murder, uploading the images to the Internet. These images and videos are used for propaganda, and their authenticity is often impossible to verify. It is very rare that a group of fighters from either side gives a professional photojournalist from a country outside Syria full and unfettered access to chronicle an atrocity as it unfolds. The images above are products of that access.

What follows is a harrowing series of photographs of Islamic militants publicly executing, by decapitation, a young Syrian in the town of Keferghan, near Aleppo, on August 31, 2013.

Because of the danger in reporting inside Syria, it was not possible to confirm the identity or political affiliation of the victim. Nor are we certain about the motivation of his killers. One eyewitness who lives in the area and was contacted by TIME a week after the beheadings said that the executioners were from ISIS, an Al-Qaeda franchise operating in Syria and Iraq.

TIME obtained the images exclusively from a photographer who was recently in Syria. This decapitation was the last of four executions he documented that day. TIME has agreed not to publish the photographer’s name,  to protect him from repercussions when he returns to Syria. What follows is an edited account of his experience:

The man was brought in to the square. His eyes were blindfolded. I began shooting pictures, one after the other. It was to be the fourth execution that day I would photograph. I was feeling awful; several times I had been on the verge of throwing up. But I kept it under control because as a journalist I knew I had to document this, as I had the three previous beheadings I had photographed that day, in three other locations outside Aleppo.

The crowd began cheering. Everyone was happy. I knew that if I tried to intervene I would be taken away, and that the executions would go ahead. I knew that I wouldn’t be able to change what was happening and I might put myself in danger.

I saw a scene of utter cruelty: a human being treated in a way that no human being should ever be treated. But it seems to me that in two and a half years, the war has degraded people’s humanity. On this day the people at the execution had no control over their feelings, their desires, their anger. It was impossible to stop them.

I don’t know how old the victim was but he was young. He was forced to his knees. The rebels around him read out his crimes from a sheet of paper. They stood around him. The young man was on his knees on the ground, his hands tied. He seemed frozen.

Pakistan: Dozens Of Christian Families Flee Village After Pastor Accused Of ‘Blasphemy’ Against Mohammed

09/12/2013 3 comments

Pakistani Christians know that in the eyes of all Islamists, simply being accused of insulting the “prophet” means that you have insulted all of Islam. And in the “word of Allah” you will likely be considered guilty by association …

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

Christian Today – “Dozens of Christian families have fled from their homes in a village near Lahore after a pastor was accused of blasphemy against the Prophet Muhammad.

In a discussion with a Muslim man on August 24, Pastor Sattar Masih, 37, was accused of saying that Muhammad was a brutal man who killed innocent people.

Masih denies the accusations, saying he said nothing derogatory about Islam or the Prophet.

The pastor was beckoned before Islamic clerics to plead his case. ‘The clerics will decide if he blasphemed against our Prophet and in case he refused to appear before the clerics then we will kill him,’ said his accuser, 18-year-old Ali Hassan.

Fearing he would not be given a fair trial, Masih fled to Lahore with 21-year-old Christian Wasim Raza, who had introduced Hassan to the pastor, after a group of Muslims had undertaken a house-to-house search for them.

Masih told World Watch Monitor that one cleric had asked him if he had said Muhammad was a cruel man. ‘I clearly refuted the claim and told him that I had only defended that the Bible is still in its original form,’ he said.

On September 2, more than 250 Muslims gathered to discuss the case against Masih. Seven Christians from the families of Masih and Raza defended him, saying that no insulting language about Islam or its prophet had been used.

The next day, teachers from the village school asked Christian students about the religious teachings Masih had been giving them. More than 100 of them were sent home, which raised alarms among their families, causing many of them to flee from the village.

A local police spokesman said police had intervened and that there was no danger of an attack against Christians. However, Christians are still reluctant to return, particularly Masih and Raza, who fear that they will be killed.” Read more.

Morocco: Convert To Christianity Imprisoned For ‘Shaking The Faith Of A Muslim’

Hebrews 13:3, “Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.”

By Joseph DeCaro, Worthy News – “A Moroccan Christian has been fined and jailed for ‘shaking the faith of a Muslim.’

Spreading Christianity is prohibited under Article 220 of the Moroccan Penal Code; the maximum sentence for this offense is three to six months’ imprisonment, but in a September hearing, Mohamed el Baldi was convicted and sentenced to two and a half years!

Baldi was arrested after his house was raided on August 28 and all his religious belongings were confiscated, according to World Watch Monitor.

Baldi, who converted to Christianity almost seven years ago, confessed that he attended Christian meetings in the towns of Meknes and Rabat.

During his hearing, Baldi’s mother was said to have asked Allah to exact revenge on whoever tampered with her son’s mind.

Having a population more than 99 percent Muslim, Morocco is ranked 39th on the Open Doors International World Watch List of countries where practicing Christianity is the most difficult.” Source – Worthy News.

Nigeria: Muslims Slaughter Christian Family Near Jos, Promise To Return For More

09/12/2013 2 comments

Morning Star News – “Muslim, ethnic Fulani herdsmen shot five members of a Christian family to death last week, including a 7-year-old boy, and killed another Christian as they fled, relatives said.

Alleged cattle theft may have been the pretext for targeting the predominantly Christian agrarian community, but the gunmen struck the family of 50-year-old Dung Peter only because his home on the eastern edge of Kunte-Kuru village, outside of Jos, was the most accessible for the guerrilla-style attack, they said.

As in other attacks by Fulani cattle herders, targeting a home on the edge of the village enabled the gunmen to slip back quickly into the bush before area Christians could defend themselves.

Gyang Musa Davou, 42, said his slain cousin – referred to as ‘brother’ in Nigeria – had returned from work at 7 p.m.

‘At about 10 p.m., he retired to his room to sleep, when suddenly gunmen invaded the village, broke into his room and killed him alongside his wife and three children,’ Davou said. ‘And as they were leaving the house, they saw another man, also a Christian, Dung Dauda, 42, who was returning to the village at the time of the attack. They shot him dead just outside the house of my brother.’

Killed along with Peter were his wife, Rose, 47; his son, Sati, 25; his daughter, Taiye, 17; and his 7-year-old son, Samson.

Another son, 20-year-old David, was not in the house at the time and was the sole survivor. His family was part of the Church of Christ in Nations (COCIN).

Davou said the Fulani Muslim gunmen took the mobile phone of the slain Dauda and used it the next day to ‘phone some of our people, warning that they will again return to attack the village.'” Read more.
