Christian Association Of Nigeria Decries Slaughter Of Christians, Calls For Peaceful Co-Existence With Muslims

01/16/2014 Leave a comment

Unfortunately, peaceful co-existence with “infidels” is forbidden by the “Religion of Peace” …

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

By Stephen Gbadamosi, Nigerian Tribune – “The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has expressed worry at the spate of killing of Christians in the country, calling on the government to set machinery in motion to affirm peaceful co-existence of the people of the country.

The association, in a statement issued by its South-West zone chairman, Archbishop Magnus Atilade, and made available to the Nigerian Tribune on Wednesday, said it had become imperative to call the attention of the world to the growing threat to the life and property of Christians in the country.

Archbishop Atilade, who is also the President, Christian Welfare Initiative (CWI), noted: ‘I am compelled, as a Christian, the President of the Christian Welfare Initiative (CWI), and as chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), South-West zone, to draw the attention of the entire citizenry of this country, as well as other nations in the world to the growing threat to the life and property of Christians in the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

‘We affirm that Nigeria is a secular society in which all the citizens have the right to live, work and express their faith according to their individual convictions. If the secularity of Nigeria has in any way been reviewed or modified, we are not aware. The constitution of Nigeria guarantees freedom of speech, freedom of movement, and the right to worship God according to individual conviction.

‘We are, however, disturbed and very alarmed at the rate and consistency with which Christians are being slaughtered in northern Nigeria, in a manner similar to the genocide in Rwanda. The brutality, cruelty and inhuman manner in which Nigerian Christians are being systematically and consistently slaughtered by individuals claiming to be adherents of the Islamic faith has reached an alarming proportion that we are compelled to speak out. This is inhuman.'” Source – Nigerian Tribune.

Turkey’s Christians Fear Possible Hate Campaign

01/16/2014 1 comment

One which is even worse than the hate campaign that is already in motion …

Matthew 10:22, “And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved.”

Al Monitor – “A predominantly Muslim nation, Turkey has occasionally seen anti-Christian campaigns, some with tragic consequences. But the scale of protests against New Year’s celebrations this year was unprecedented. Previously, some Islamic media would denounce the festivities as un-Islamic, but never before have we seen acts threatening those who celebrate.

As fellow Al-Monitor contributor Pinar Tremblay described, members of Turkey’s tiny Christian minority were already depressed, bemoaning the increasingly subdued fashion of their Christmas celebrations and the ‘long gone memory’ of times past, when Christians and Muslims shared holidays.

The events preceding New Year’s Eve — events which were a first for Turkey — added to the gloom. It all started with posters depicting a devout-looking Muslim man punching Santa Claus, hung in various Istanbul neighborhoods. ‘No to New Year’s and Christmas celebrations,’ read the posters. They were part of a campaign led by the Anatolian Youth Association, known to be the youth branch of the pro-Islamic Felicity Party.

The group distributed fliers reading, ‘We are crying out that the New Year’s and Christmas celebrations held in our country are wrong and constitute a blow dealt to our Muslim identity.’ The flier also included the following paragraph: ‘The adoption and practice of Christmas by Muslims should be regarded as religious and cultural degeneration. One should bear in mind that such behavior is accelerating the process of alienation and estrangement from our own religious beliefs and values, and will breed a favorable ground for Christian missionary activities targeting our country and people.’

The last sentence is particularly noteworthy, since it raises concerns of a possible resurrection of the anti-Christian campaign that plagued Turkey in the 2000s and resulted in physical attacks on Christians.

In 2005 and 2006, almost all national newspapers carried reports targeting Christians, especially missionaries. The paranoia of a missionary invasion spread to such an extent that the National Security Council, where government and military leaders discuss Turkey’s top security issues, classified missionary activities as one of the country’s major security problems. The Ergenekon probe, launched in 2008 to investigate mainly alleged coup plots, revealed that the anti-missionary campaign was waged in a systematic fashion by a faction within the Ergenekon organization.

The anti-Christian campaign at the time resulted in verbal and physical attacks on hundreds of Christians and churches across Turkey.” Read more.

They threatened to kill him if he didn’t recite the Islamic testimony of faith.” Read more.

Syria: Young Christian Man Beheaded On The Spot After Islamists Notice Cross Necklace

01/16/2014 6 comments

1 Corinthians 1:18, “For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.”

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

Agenzia Fides – “Islamist groups have killed and beheaded a young Christian man, seriously wounding another. The incident, which occurred on 8 January, was reported to Fides only now by a priest in the diocese of Homs. The two, Firas Nader (29), and Fadi Matanius Mattah (34), were traveling by car from Homs to the Christian village of Marmarita. A group of five armed jihadists intercepted the vehicle and opened fire on the car. Upon reaching the car, militiamen, noting that Fadi was wearing a cross around his neck, beheaded him. They then took money and documents, leaving Firas on the ground wounded, believing he was already dead. Firas instead managed to escape, reaching the town of Almshtaeih on foot and was then transferred to the hospital in Tartou. Some of the faithful were able to recover the body of Mattah, bringing him to Marmarita, where the local Christian community expressed strong indignation for the horrible act carried out.

According to a statement sent to Fides by Aid to the Church in Need (ACN), violence against Christians in Syria, is becoming ‘one of the worst persecutions endured by Christians in this part of the third millennium’. According to the latest reports, more than 600,000 Christians – a third of the total Syrian faithful – are internally displaced or living as refugees in neighboring countries. Christian leaders confirm the massive exodus of Christians from Syria, which could seriously jeopardize the future of Christians in the nation.

As ACN in Homs highlights, Marmarita and Hamat, the Syrian population, which includes many Christians, live in severe discomfort and without food, heating, shelter and medicine because of the bitter cold weather that has worsened the humanitarian crisis which exists due to the conflict.” Source – Agenzia Fides.

US ‘Justice Department’ To Prohibit Agents From Considering Religion In Counterterror Investigations

The fact that 95% of all suicide bombings were perpetrated by Islamists in 2013 means nothing. According to the witless fools of Washington, it could have just as likely been your Baptist grandmother

Proverbs 14:8, “The prudent understand where they are going, but fools deceive themselves.”

Hadith, Bukhari 2977, “I have been made victorious with terror” – The “Prophet” Of Islam, Mohammed

Islam Has Nothing To Do With It

Islam Has Nothing To Do With It

By Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch – “Because who ever heard of Muslims being involved in terrorism? The very idea is preposterous! Why would anyone get the idea that counterterror surveillance was ever needed in Muslim communities?

‘U.S. to Expand Rules Limiting Use of Profiling by Federal Agents,’ by Matt Apuzzo for the New York Times, January 15 (thanks to Linda Sarsour):

The Justice Department will significantly expand its definition of racial profiling to prohibit federal agents from considering religion, national origin, gender and sexual orientation in their investigations, a government official said Wednesday.The move addresses a decade of criticism from civil rights groups that say federal authorities have in particular singled out Muslims in counterterrorism investigations and Latinos for immigration investigations.

The Bush administration banned profiling in 2003, but with two caveats: It did not apply to national security cases, and it covered only race, not religion, ancestry or other factors.

Since taking office, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. has been under pressure from Democrats in Congress to eliminate those provisions. “These exceptions are a license to profile American Muslims and Hispanic-Americans,” Senator Richard J. Durbin, Democrat of Illinois, said in 2012.

President George W. Bush said in 2001 that racial profiling was wrong and promised “to end it in America.” But that was before the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11. After those attacks, federal agents arrested and detained dozens of Muslim men who had no ties to terrorism. The government also began a program known as special registration, which required tens of thousands of Arab and Muslim men to register with the authorities because of their nationalities.

“Putting an end to this practice not only comports with the Constitution, it would put real teeth to the F.B.I’s claims that it wants better relationships with religious minorities,” said Hina Shamsi, a national security lawyer with the American Civil Liberties Union.

It is not clear whether Mr. Holder also intends to make the rules apply to national security investigations, which would further respond to complaints from Muslim groups.

“Adding religion and national origin is huge,” said Linda Sarsour, advocacy director for the National Network for Arab American Communities. “But if they don’t close the national security loophole, then it’s really irrelevant.

In other words, she even wants it to be forbidden for Muslims to be placed under surveillance in the interests of national security. Read more…

Canada: Halifax Rec Center Bows Down To Sharia Law, Segregates Men And Women To Avoid Offending Muslim Man

01/16/2014 2 comments

For peaceful, misogynistic purposes …

Hadith, Bukhari 5096, “[Muhammad said] The worst sin and distraction from virtue that I have left for man is woman”

sonja-power-2By Kris Sims, The Toronto Sun – “Politicians are scrambling to put a brave face on an ugly situation at a Halifax recreation centre.

Sonja Power, 17, was on the cusp of earning her black belt in Aikido at a Halifax dojo when a new man joined the class. He refused to be in contact with women or to spar with any of the female students.

Power and the other women were told to stay on one side of the room and not to approach the Muslim man to respect his faith.

‘I felt like a second class citizen, that I was so disgusting and unworthy that this man doesn’t even want to interact with me,’ Power told QMI Agency. ‘It doesn’t make any sense, why would something you choose, your religion, trump something I’m born with, my gender, we wouldn’t let a religion trump someone’s race.’

The incident happened more than a year ago and Power’s mother, Michele Walsh, said she has contacted every level of government but was ignored. She said the sensei told her to ‘get used to’ the gender separation.

A similar situation at York University reignited the issue.

‘I don’t think anybody’s rights should be trampled, so as a person of faith and as a woman I would be offended by this on both sides,’ said Candice Bergen, minister of state for Social Development speaking in Halifax. ‘We’ve seen organizations across the country for decades being able to (compromise) there’s no reason this organization and this individual not to be able to do that.’

Religion and gender are both protected human rights.

The City of Halifax, which owns the recreation centre, refused to comment citing privacy concerns, but said the city tries to work out human rights concerns between the parties.” Source – The Toronto Sun.

In other words, he dies for nothing. Islam. It’s driven by death, followed by hell …

Isaiah 24:6a, “Therefore the curse [“alah“] has devoured the earth, And those who dwell in it are desolate …”

Romans 3:16-17, “Destruction and misery are in their ways; And the way of peace they have not known.”

By Nick Logan, Global News – “A Canadian man who converted to Islam and went to Syria to fight with rebels has reportedly been killed in the civil war-ravaged country.

The death of Nova Scotia-born, Calgary-raised Damian Clairmont, who changed his name to Mustafa al-Gharib, was reported on Wednesday. He was reportedly fighting with the al-Qaeda-linked group Jabhat al-Nusra.

According to reports, al-Gharib was killed by the Free Syrian Army, in fighting near Aleppo. There was no clear indication of when exactly he died.

Foreign Minister John Baird acknowledged the reports of al-Gharib’s death to media in Washington D.C. on Wednesday and said ‘there is probably more than one Canadian fighting with the opposition.’

On a Twitter account belonging to Abu Turab Al-Muhajir, who describes himself on social media as an ‘‘American ‘Jihadi’ or [whatever] they are calling it,’ a post about al-Gharib read: ‘My Bro …. Abu Talha al-Canadi Executed by #FSA! InshAllah we will meet in Jannah! May Allah accept your Shahada!'” Read more.
