The Boston Globe: The Global War On Christianity Is Violent And Real

04/14/2014 Leave a comment

Acts 14:22, “… continue in the faith … we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.”


By John L. Allen Jr., The Boston Globe – “Dutch Jesuit priest Frans van der Lugt, killed in Syria last week just shy of his 76th birthday, personified the best of the missionary spirit in Catholicism. He spent 50 years in his adopted country, humbly serving poor and disabled persons regardless of their race or religion.

Whenever a Syrian came to his door seeking help, van der Lugt told a friend, ‘I don’t see Muslims or Christians, only human beings.’

At the time of his death, van der Lugt was the last Westerner in the bitterly contested city of Homs. On Monday morning, a still-unidentified assailant dragged him into the street outside his Jesuit residence, beat him, and then shot him twice in the head.

Most observers believe the killer was an Islamic radical, though a few suspect the Assad regime may have orchestrated the murder in order to blame the rebels.

For the last several years, van der Lugt served at a small center for mentally and physically disabled people. A Muslim charity would give him around nine pounds of flour every week, which he turned into bread, giving half a loaf to the 30 neediest people he knew.

‘I try to help the mentally ill,’ van der Lugt said in a recent interview, ‘not by analyzing their problems, as the problems are obvious and there’s no solution for them here. I listen to them and give as much food as I can.’

Because van der Lugt was a Westerner and part of a high-profile international religious order, his death made headlines. Many similar tragedies, however, never do.

Earlier this month, a 25-year-old Coptic Christian woman in Egypt named Mary Sameh George was hauled from her car near a church in Cairo, mauled to such an extent that portions of her scalp were torn off, and then killed when her throat was slit.

The assailants reportedly were supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood. In Vietnam, a Catholic convert and human rights activist named Dinh Dang Dinh died April 4 of untreated stomach cancer in prison, having been jailed in 2012 for ‘antistate propaganda.’

In that context, van der Lugt’s death has to be seen as part of a dramatic, and often untold, religion story of the early 21st century — the global war on Christians.” Read more.

Palestinian Mufti: We Will Either Live On The Land Or Be Buried In It As Martyrs

04/14/2014 Leave a comment

Incredible. This Mufti doesn’t know it, but his own words attest the prophetic word of the God of Israel as recorded by Ezekiel. They will indeed be buried …

Ezekiel 39:11, “It will come to pass in that day that I will give Gog a burial place there in Israel, the valley of those who pass by east of the sea; and it will obstruct travelers, because there they will bury Gog and all his multitude. Therefore they will call it the Valley of Hamon Gog.”

PA Mufti Muhammad Hussein, Official PA TV, 1/17/2014: “We are a nation whose position on this land is [one of] two things: It’s either to live in honor and glory on this land, or to be under it as Shahids (Martyrs), just like the first generations of Muslims and Shahids of our nation. Yes, this path and course was chosen for us, because this blessed land needs our sacrifice, even if it be our lives.” Watch video.

The fullness of the Gentiles approaches …

Romans 11:11, 25-26, “I say then, have they stumbled that they should fall? Certainly not! But through their fall, to provoke them to jealousy, salvation [has come] to the Gentiles… For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: ‘The Deliverer will come out of Zion, And He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob’”

Isaiah 62:11, “Behold, the LORD hath proclaimed unto the end of the world, Say ye to the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy YESHU’AH cometh; behold, HIS reward [is] with HIM, and his work before him.”

Revelation 22:12, “And behold, I [YESHUA] am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work.”

Passover Shame: Activists In Israel Say Hamas Has Conquered Temple Mount, Police Have ‘Lost Control’

It’ll be interesting to see what events transpire between now and the end of the tetrad of 2014-2015. The first eclipse begins tomorrow

By Gil Ronen and Ari Soffer, INN – “Police have ‘lost control of the Temple Mount,’ Temple activists charged Monday morning, on the eve of Pesach.

Dozens of Hamas men have taken over the Mount, waving Hamas flags, and are ‘not allowing Jews and tourists into the Mount,’ said the activists.

‘Hundreds of Jews who came to the Temple Mount for Pesach were astonished to find a police representative standing at the entrance gate and announcing that the Mount had been closed off to Jews after Hamas had taken over the Mount and threatened violence against any Jews who enter,’ the Temple organizations reported in a news communique.

The Temple organizations called for the police commissioner to resign, following his failures on the Temple Mount.

‘Time after time, the police abandon the Mount to hostile hands – especially on Jewish holidays,’ they charged. ‘Then the same commanders come to the Knesset and the Interior Committee, and lie that the Mount was open.’

The latest incident comes just one day after Hamas-linked Islamists rioted on the Temple Mount, preventing Jewish visitors from ascending Judaism’s holiest site.

In response, police banned Jews from the site – prompting Temple Mount activists to accuse authorities of essentially collaborating with Muslim extremists to prevent Jews from visiting the Mount. The Temple activists say that about 20 Hamas men stayed in the compound overnight and that the police have allowed them to do so.” Read more.

This Weekend In Nigeria: Islamists Massacre Students, Kill Hundreds Of ‘Infidels’ For Their Prophet

04/14/2014 2 comments

In the mind of these murderers, if you’re studying anything other than more opportunities to kill for the glory of Islam then you are considered a part of the enemy’s number, not Mohammed’s. And if you do not belong to Mohammed, you do not belong among the living …

Revelation 13:15-18, “And it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might even speak and might cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain. And it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate [‘psēphizō’ – reckon] the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is χξς.”

National Mirror – “Many students travelling at the weekend to sit for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, in Borno State, were reportedly killed by the dreaded Boko Haram sect, in various attacks believed to have claimed over 200 lives in the past two days.

The UTME, conducted by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) was held nationwide yesterday. The students, according to sources, lost their lives as the sect embarked on multiple attacks that affected no fewer than four communities in the state.

Sources disclosed that the insurgents laid in ambush for the students, who were in eight vehicles and who were on their way to Biu from Maiduguri, to write the exams. It could not be ascertained if all the students in the eight vehicles were killed during the attacks.

Reacting to the incident, the Senator representing Borno Central, Zannah Ahmed, told journalists on Friday that at least 210 people have been killed so far in the attacks that lasted between Thursday night and Friday morning. Ahmed said he smelt a rat as some of the attackers mostly wore military uniforms and spoke English language, contrary to the traditional Hausa and Kanuri languages usually spoken by the insurgents.

The two-day attacks, he said, were unleashed on communities such as Dikwa, Kala Balge, Gambulga and Gwoza.

The senator complained, lamenting that the military authorities in Gamboru did not respond to the distress call from the locals of Kala Balge when the insurgents besieged their community.

Ahmed said he had to speak up because the rate at which his people were being massacred on daily basis had become worrisome, saying ‘what happened in Borno is beyond understanding.’

‘It is a must for me to speak since the people’s lives are involved and they are my people. All these are happening in my constituency and it will be wrong to keep quiet. I feel so much pained and would not have spoken but definitely my conscience will not let me do that,’ he lamented.

Senator Ahmed further disclosed those who massacred about 210 persons in his area stormed the communities in two armored personnel cars and seven double cabin pickups.” Read more.

Australia: Muslim Preacher Publicly Prays For Slaughter Of Non-Muslims, Authorities Say It’s OK

04/14/2014 3 comments

Death and destruction in the name of Islam. For peaceful purposes …

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

Revelation 18:3, “For all the nations have drunk the maddening wine of her adulteries …”

News.com.au – “POLICE say they will not act against a radical preacher who publicly prayed for the slaughter of Hindus and Buddhists, leaving him free to spread his messages of hatred.

A sermon videotaped in South Australia last year also showed Sheikh Sharif Hussein accusing Australian troops, whom he called ‘crusader pigs’, of helping to rape tens of thousands of women in Iraq, but SA police say he has broken no laws.

This has prompted outspoken SA conservative senator Cory Bernardi to demand changes to race-hate laws, or the way they are enforced.

He says the police decision proves that Australian freedoms are ‘being used against us’ and claims that any similar attack on the sheik’s fundamentalist Muslim ideologies would be met with outrage.

Buddhists and Hindus have expressed shock at the police decision and say the sheik will lash out again.

According to a translation of the Arabic video, published by the US-based Middle East Media Research Institute, the sheikh publicly prayed: ‘Oh Allah, count the Buddhists and the Hindus one by one. Oh Allah, count them and kill them to the very last one’.

A police investigation was launched after The Advertiser last year revealed details of one lecture recording, believed to have been delivered, in part, at the Islamic Da’wah Centre of SA, in Torrensville.

In the video clip, posted online in August last year by the research institute, the preacher also attacked Jews, former prime minister John Howard and US President Barack Obama, speaking in Arabic.

Senator Bernardi said the fact Sheikh Hussein had not been prosecuted showed that Australia’s freedoms were ‘being used against us to further a dangerous cause’.

‘I can only imagine the political and legal repercussions if similar statements were made about adherents to Mr Hussein’s ideology,’ he said.

‘Frankly, the Australian public have had enough of the double standards that seem to apply to people like Sharif Hussein. They appear free to spread their poison, while those who challenge their world view are condemned as bigots or racists.'” Read more.
