Agenzia Fides – “The bodies of thirty Christian civilians have been found in two separate mass graves, including women and children, killed by Islamist militias in the city of Sadad. And, altogether, the Christian civilians killed in a small town halfway between Homs and Damascus are 45. This is what the Syrian Orthodox Patriarchate in Damascus reported to Fides. The city of Sadad, a Christian settlement, was invaded and occupied by Islamist militias on October 21 and was recaptured in recent days by the Syrian regular army. When the representatives of the Patriarchate and the families of the victims returned to town they found to their horror two mass graves, where they found the bodies of their relatives and friends. In an atmosphere of grief, outrage and emotion, the funerals of the thirty Christians were celebrated by Archbishop Selwanos Boutros Alnemeh, Syriac Orthodox Metropolitan of Homs and Hama, who provided Fides the list of victims.

According to eyewitnesses, many of the civilians were killed by militia gangs of ‘Al- Nusra Front’ and ‘Daash’. The city is now completely destroyed and looted. Some of the militants who invaded the city were holed up in the Syriac Orthodox Church of St. Theodore, which was profaned. Sadad is an ancient Syriac village which dates back to 2000 B.C. located in the region of Qalamoon, north of Damascus, with its churches, temples, historic landmarks and archaeological sites.” Source – Agenzia Fides.

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: Al-Qaeda Vows To Slaughter Christians After Syria Is ‘Liberated’ – “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 …” Read more.

Surprise: 28 Solar Flares In The Last Seven Days, And More May Be Coming

11/01/2013 1 comment

By Deborah Netburn, Los Angeles Times – “The sun has erupted more than two dozen times over the last week, sending radiation and solar material hurtling through space – and scientists say more eruptions may be coming.

This shouldn’t be unusual. After all, we are technically at solar maximum, the peak of the 11-year cycle of the sun’s activity. But this has been a noticeably mellow solar maximum, with the sun staying fairly quiet throughout the summer. So when our life-giving star suddenly let loose with 24 medium strength M-class solar flares and four significantly stronger X-class flares between Oct.  23 and Oct. 30, it felt like a surprise.

Many of the flares originated from sunspot AR1884, a particularly active region of the sun that is currently facing Earth, almost at the center of the star. If this region stays active, it will continue to hurl radiation and solar material our way for about another week until it rotates out of sight.

A sunspot is an area of the sun where the magnetic fields have gotten all twisted up. ‘You get a tangled bunch of magnetic fields, and they get too tangled and too stressed, they end up erupting,’ said Holly Gilbert, a solar physicist at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.

The good news is that none of the rapid-fire solar flares of the last week have had much effect on life on Earth. Our atmosphere protects us from the sun’s occasional powerful bursts of light and radiation, but solar flares do occasionally interact with our communications systems. The radiation can mess with an upper layer in our atmosphere called the ionosphere and cause radio signals to act funky.” Read more.

Neutron monitors all round the world lit up in response to the blast for the first time in six years, despite the fact it was an M-Class, or moderate, flare.” Read more.

Flashback: Signs in the Sun: Some Scientists Believe Bursts Of Solar Activity May Be Causing Natural Disasters On Earth – “Some scientists believe bursts of solar activity cause natural disasters on our planet, but until now the star has been too difficult to reach or explore in any detail. Some Russian researchers think they have the solution. Volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis – apocalyptic pictures are becoming an ordinary part of news bulletins across the globe. And scientists are not giving out reassuring forecasts.” Read more.

Eritrean Christian Refusing To Renounce Her Faith Dies In Prison After Being Denied Medical Treatment

11/01/2013 1 comment

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, “But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus… the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words.”

By John Evans, Baptist Press – “A Christian woman perished from pneumonia in an Eritrean prison after facing harsh conditions and denial of medical treatment — all because she would not renounce her faith.

Open Doors, an organization supporting the global persecuted church, reported this week that Wehazit Berhane Debesai is the 25th known Christian to have died in prison in Eritrea. According to the report, the exact date of death of the woman in her 30s is unknown. Eritrean authorities arrested her a year ago. They held her near the Ethiopian border for being involved in Christian activities outside the Orthodox, Catholic and Evangelical Lutheran church groups.

Debesai’s death came as government forces arrested 70 Christians who met for prayer in the capital of Asmara, according to Open Doors. It is the third time the pastor who led the prayer event has been thrown in prison for his faith. This latest development brings the total number of Christians arrested this year in Eritrea to nearly 300. Local Christians call it the government’s most serious campaign against the church so far.

In what may be a separate event, according to conflicting reports, government security forces arrested 185 Christians praying together in a suburb to the north of Asmara. According to Release International, a United Kingdom-based group serving the persecuted church, most of those arrests involved women.

‘Our Eritrean partners say church leaders fear this mass arrest could herald a new clampdown on Christians and a wave of further detentions,’ Paul Robinson, chief executive of Release International, told the UK-based charity Cross Rhythms.

The Christians were believed to have gathered to pray for the country’s refugee crisis. The United Nations reports thousands of Eritreans try to flee every month despite an alleged ‘shoot-to-kill’ policy by security forces against anyone attempting to escape.

‘The arrest has alarmed underground church leaders, who fear that this may be a sign of things to come,’ Robinson said.” Read more.

An Aachen Pain: Last Week’s Mob Violence In Germany Was Composed Of Virtually All ‘Immigrant’ Men

11/01/2013 Leave a comment

Here’s an update on the recent story of German police being forced to run for their lives from violent mobs last week. Details are now coming to light revealing the fact that the brazen mob violence was perpetrated by dozens of men, “virtually all” of whom had an immigrant background. What we are witnessing today is the reaping of the West’s flawed belief that sowing the seeds of multicultural acceptance for an ideology hell-bent on its destruction will somehow reciprocate acceptance in kind. The fact of the matter, however, is that Islamic culture never has, and it never will, accept true peaceful coexistence with whom it considers the “vilest of animals” that must be converted, or killed if they refuse. Last week’s attack against the police was a “new dimension” of violence indeed, and it’s one that isn’t going to go away any time soon. It’s only going to get worse. For peaceful purposes …

Qur’an Sura 8:55, “Surely the vilest of animals in Allah’s sight are those who disbelieve [non-Muslims] …”

Hadith, Sahih Muslim 1:33a, “The Messenger of Allah said: ‘I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah, and they establish [Islamic] prayer …” (The Shahada)

By Junge Freiheit via Islam verses Europe – “After having been hounded in the Eastern district of Aachen, police responded with a raid which went on for days. In the course of 5 days, people and premises were checked in the surroundings of Elsass Square. In a Sisha-Bar police found drugs, money allegedly coming from drug trafficking which amounted to a 4-digit sum, and also diverse stolen goods, among others a package containing one hundred empty school certificates from a school in Aachen.

What triggered the recent riots last Thursday was the attempt of the patrolling police agent at Elsass Square to capture an offender. The agent was then hounded by a dozen immigrants along the Square and Schleswig Street, and also threatened with death. As 15 of his colleagues rushed to help him, they had to flee from a group of 50-60 persons.

Capitulation to the criminal mob

This event created a heated controversy in Aachen. Preoccupied citizens were talking about the capitulation of the police to the criminal mob, and were calling for the creation of civil defense groups. Police spokesman Paul Kemen rejected the accusations of having failed (in their duty) and he praised the restraint of the police. ‘The agent involved and those who arrived later have in spite of the volatility of the situation not allowed their emotions to lead them, but they acted very prudently’, he declared to Aachener Nachrichten.

There were many onlookers in the place. ‘Police measures cannot be carried through without taking the possible losses into consideration’. Kemen admitted that it was a ‘new dimension’ of violence, but he said that the population there was not ‘without protection’. Although the mob was composed of men ‘virtually all with an immigrant background’, he warned against a ‘generalizing suspicion’.

This huge raid can now be considered more as a failure in light of the efforts put into it. There were no more successful actions than the detention of four individuals in the Sisha-bar on suspicion of being illegal immigrants. Police chief Christian Außen declared to the newspaper that: ‘None of them was there. We will concentrate on other problematic zones’. An analysis of this incident was announced by the mayor’s office, for ‘something like this must not happen again’.” Source – Islam verses Europe.

According to annual report of the German police, Turks as well as migrants from Nigeria and Sierra Leone are playing major role in coordination of crime among the immigrants… Back in 2010 Militant Islam Monitor website wrote that Turkish criminal gangs are controlling the streets of Berlin… Turks are controlling major part of the black drug market in Europe – about 93%… Muslims from African countries are also joining… ” Read more.
