“Terrifying”: 150 Million Christians Suffering At Hands Of Muslims Have Reached “Biblical Proportions”

11/08/2014 1 comment

In the midst of it all, rejoice, for our Redemption draws near …

1 Peter 4:12-13, “Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you … but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.”

Matthew 24:29-31, “Immediately after the tribulation of those days … they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect …”

Colossians 3:12-13, “Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another …”

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

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

By Giulio Meotti, INN – “‘The number of persecuted Christians in the world is 150 million.’ There are many other figures, terrifying and dramatic, in the pages of the ‘Blackbook of the plight of Christians in the world’, a unique initiative of French scholars and coordinated by journalist Samuel Lieven. Snapshots of a global and amorphous war.

In particular, there is a disconcerting statistic: ’80 percent of the acts of religious persecution in the world are directed against Christians.’ How many victims? The Center for the Study of Global Christianity brings the average of one hundred thousand Christians killed each year for their faith throughout the last decade. An average of five Christians every minute.

Yesterday, in Pakistan, two Christians, including a pregnant woman, were burnt alive in the brick kiln where they worked. It was a pogrom with the participation of four hundred Muslims.

Haim Korsia, Chief Rabbi of France, cries out his reaction in the face of the spread of hatred against Christians, and establishes a comparison with the destruction of Eastern Sephardic Jewry:

‘Where are the Jewish communities once so rich of Aleppo, Beirut, Alexandria, Cairo or Tripoli? Where are the schools of Nehardea and Pumbedita in Iraq? And where is the flourishing of Judaism in Esfahan and Tehran? In our memory. Driven out, killed, decimated, persecuted and exiled, the Christians of the East are personally experiencing the same plight as the Jews with whom they have lived for so long and have seen leaving those places’.

The NGO Open Doors declared that the persecution in Iraq has reached ‘biblical proportions’. Tuesday, in Rome, the annual report of Aid to the Church in Need was also presented. It told that of the 20 countries in the world where religious freedom is virtually absent, 14 are Muslim, and the others military or communist dictatorships, such as North Korea.

We are facing what Habib Malik of Stanford University calls ‘the final phase of the regional decline of Christians.'” Read more.

Flashback: ‘Global Crisis’: Christians In Islamic Nations Face Extinction, ‘Mass Exodus On A Biblical Scale’ Taking Place – “Christianity is in danger of becoming extinct in its ancient homelands because of a rising tide of sectarian attacks, a senior minister will warn on Friday. Violence against Christian worshippers and other religious minorities by fanatics has become a ‘global crisis’ and is the gravest challenge facing the world this century, Baroness Warsi will say. ‘A mass exodus is taking place, on a Biblical scale. In some places, there is a real danger that Christianity will become extinct …'” Read more.

Flashback: ‘The Most Important International Story Not Being Told by the Mainstream Media’: Christian Persecution in the Middle East – “U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom chairman Leonard Leo declared that Arab Christians face increasing persecution. ‘Christianity in Iraq could be eradicated in our lifetime, partially as a result of the U.S. troop withdrawal,’ Leo wrote. After Hosni Mubarak’s regime collapsed, 100,000 Christians fled Egypt in what the Egyptian Union of Human Rights called a ‘mass exodus.’ In the Gaza Strip, which is controlled by the radical Islamic terror group Hamas, 3,000 Christians face persecution… Should the exodus of Christians from Bethlehem continue in the next two or three decades, there may be no clergy left to conduct religious services in Jesus’ birthplace.” Read more.

Canada: Retired Marine Gets Death Threats From Arabic Speakers After Guarding War Memorial

11/08/2014 1 comment

In this day and age, I’d be surprised if he hadn’t …

Qur’an Sura 3:151, “… cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve …”

Zechariah 5:3a, 8a, ”… This is the curse [אָלָה – alah] that goes out over the face of the whole earth … This is Wickedness …”

By Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch – “Courage is at a premium these days. Few people are willing to take stands that might endanger them or even involve them in something ‘controversial.’ Leftist and Islamic supremacist jihad enablers take advantage of that fear and do everything they can to render every opponent of jihad terror too ‘controversial’ to be heard in polite society. Meanwhile, jihad murders make all too many people cower in fear and curtail their activities. Major Sinke is an exception. Hats off to him.

‘Retired Marine gets threats after guarding Canadian war memorial,’ by Jeff Schogol, Marine Corps Times, November 4, 2014:

Retired Marine Maj. “Fox” Sinke says he has received threatening phone calls from Arabic speakers since he stood guard at Canada’s National War Memorial last week.

But as he told police: “If they’re looking for a fight, they came to the right guy.”

Sinke said he received at least two phone calls on Tuesday from people who screamed at him in Arabic and then hung up.

“The only words I recognized were ‘kill you,’ because I’ve heard them before,” he said.

When Sinke told police about the phone calls, he added, “I promise you this: If they come here, they’ll die here.”

Sinke is a decorated veteran who did tours in Vietnam and received five Purple Hearts. When Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, a Canadian service member, was shot and killed last month while guarding Canada’s war memorial, Sinke felt obligated to honor the fallen hero.

“The murder of the young Cpl. Cirillo was so despicable and craven that I just couldn’t find it within myself to do nothing,” said Sinke, a dual Canadian-American citizen.

So Sinke, who lives in Canada, donned his Marine uniform and sword and went to the memorial to stand guard on Friday. He told local media that he came to pay tribute to fallen comrade in arms and he wanted to show that Canadians will not be intimidated.

He also had a message for would-be terrorists: “I said, ‘Hey, you’re looking for a target, here’s a new one for you; give it your best shot; we’ll see how it works out for you.’ ”…

Egypt: Powerful Islamist Militant Group In Sinai Swears Allegiance To ISIS Caliphate

11/08/2014 1 comment

They pledge allegiance to the Black Flag of the Islamic State and to the carnage for which it stands, one nation, divided, without liberty and justice for all. Contrary to the politically correct disinformation of blind Western simpletons, there’s a reason why Islamists all throughout the Muslim world are pledging allegiance to this self-declared Islamic caliphate: It has everything to do with Islam

Hadith, Muslim 1844, 1851, “Whoever gives his oath of allegiance to a leader and gives him his hand and his heart, let him obey him as much as he can … Whoever dies and did not make an oath of allegiance (to the Muslim leader) has died a death of jaahiliyyah [like an ignorant non-Muslim in pre-Islamic times]” – The “Prophet” Mohammed

By RIA Novosti – “Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis, a powerful Islamist group in Egypt’s Sinai peninsula, on Monday swore allegiance to the leader of the violent Islamic State movement which is fighting for the control of Syria and Iraq, the group said in a statement quoted by Reuters.

‘After entrusting God we decided to swear allegiance to the emir of the faithful Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, caliph of the Muslims in Syria and Iraq and in other countries,’ the militants said.

Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis is considered to be the most active Islamist insurgency in Egypt. The group has reportedly been coordinating its activities with the radical IS. Last week, the Egyptian government declared a state of emergency following a dramatic increase in militant attacks on its police and military personnel.

Islamic State rose to prominence in summer after a rapid advance in Syria and Iraq that helped it win large swathes of land in both countries. The group has been in combat with the Syrian armed forces since 2011. Its official goal is to create a caliphate in the controlled territories.” Source – RIA Novosti.

Turkey Declares Protecting Al-Aqsa Mosque Its “Sacred” Mission, Will Do “Whatever It Takes”

11/08/2014 2 comments

Interesting development. Tip of the hat to AtHisFeet for the link. While the city of Jerusalem is mentioned over 800 times in the Bible, the Qur’an mentions Jerusalem as frequently as the Hindu Bhagavad-Gita, the Taoist Tao-Te Ching, the Buddhist Dhamapada and the Zoroastrian Zend Avesta. In other words, not even once. But now an ISIS ally and Mideast superpower has declared the “protection” of al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem to be a “sacred” mission, even equating al-Aqsa with Islam’s holiest site itself — the Kaaba idol in Mecca. What could possibly go wrong? …

Zechariah 12:2-3a, “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah [and] against Jerusalem. And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces …”

Antichrist: Arabic inscription written inside reads, “… of God speak only the truth. The Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, is only an apostle of God… Far be it from [God's] glory that he should have a son.”

Antichrist Inscription Inside Reads “The Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, is only an apostle of God… Far be it from [God’s] glory that he should have a son.”

Hurriyet Daily News – “Turkish leaders have said protecting Islamic sites in the Holy Land is a sacred mission for them, with President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan bluntly warning any attack against the 8th-century al-Aqsa Mosque is no different than an attack on the Kaaba in the holy city of Mecca.

‘The Israeli administration has to stop this despicableness, this barbarity; what would it say if this kind of attack had been launched against synagogues? The Masjid al-Aqsa is not only a shrine for Palestinians, but is the shrine of all Muslims,’ Erdoğan was quoted as saying on Nov. 7 during an official visit to the Turkmen capital, Ashgabat.

‘This action, this attempt launched against the Masjid al-Aqsa can never be forgiven. Attacking the Masjid al-Aqsa is like attacking the Kabaa,’ Erdoğan added.

The president had already urged the international community to take ‘all required steps’ on the issue, while arguing that, otherwise, Israeli provocations might revive intifada movements, with various troubles spreading into different parts of the world, as tension would not remain limited to Palestine, Jerusalem or the region.

As Palestinian protesters fought with Israeli security forces in East Jerusalem and the occupied West Bank on Nov. 7, the latest clashes in a fortnight of violence over access to Jerusalem’s holiest site, Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu also made a point of the significance attached to resolving of the issue by his government.

‘Al-Quds [Jerusalem] has been entrusted with us by [Muslim caliph] Hazrat Omar. Al-Quds has been entrusted to us by [Ottoman Sultan] Yavuz Sultan Selim and [Ottoman Sultan] Süleyman the Magnificent. Al-Quds has been entrusted to us by the last soldier of the Ottomans,’ Davutoğlu said passionately on Nov. 7.

‘Al-Quds is our cause even if everybody else forgets and it will continue being our cause for eternity. Nobody can turn to a Turk and say ‘al-Quds is not your cause,’’ Davutoğlu added, as he was delivering a speech during a collective opening ceremony for some 21 facilities in the northwestern Anatolian province of Bursa.

Recalling that he called both Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas political chief Khaled Mashaal earlier in the day, Davutoğlu pledged to do whatever it takes for al-Quds and the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

‘We have given the required orders; we will launch initiatives everywhere, the U.N. being the first place in the world for supporting al-Quds,’ Davutoğlu said.” Read more.

“ISIS Sees Turkey As Its Ally”: Former Islamic State Member Reveals Turkish Army Cooperation

11/08/2014 Leave a comment

You know what they say about birds of a feather, so why shouldn’t they see Turkey as an ally? In Revelation 2:12-13 Jesus Himself says that the region that is now modern day Turkey is “where Satan’s throne is” and “where Satan dwells.” And Satan is, after all, whom they ultimately worship in their fight for the cause of “Allah” and his false “prophet” …

Revelation 12:9, 13:4, “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth … And they worshiped the dragon [Satan], for he had given his authority to the beast, and they worshiped the beast, saying, ‘Who is like the beast, and who can fight against it?’”

Qur’an Sura 3:54, “… Allah is the best of the deceivers.”

Revelation 20:10, “The devil [Satan], who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.”

Allahu Akbar! What’s up, bro?

By Barney Guiton, Newsweek – “A former member of ISIS has revealed the extent to which the cooperation of the Turkish military and border forces allows the terrorist group, who now control large parts of Iraq and Syria, to travel through Turkish territory to reinforce fighters battling Kurdish forces.

A reluctant former communications technician working for Islamic State, going by the pseudonym ‘Sherko Omer’, who managed to escape the group, told Newsweekthat he travelled in a convoy of trucks as part of an ISIS unit from their stronghold in Raqqa, across Turkish border, through Turkey and then back across the border to attack Syrian Kurds in the city of Serekaniye in northern Syria in February, in order to bypass their defences.

‘ISIS commanders told us to fear nothing at all because there was full cooperation with the Turks,’ said Omer of crossing the border into Turkey, ‘and they reassured us that nothing will happen, especially when that is how they regularly travel from Raqqa and Aleppo to the Kurdish areas further northeast of Syria because it was impossible to travel through Syria as YPG controlled most parts of the Kurdish region.’

Until last month, NATO member Turkey had blocked Kurdish fighters from crossing the border into Syria to aid their Syrian counterparts in defending the border town of Kobane. Speaking to Newsweek, Kurds in Kobane said that people attempting to carry supplies across the border were often shot at.

National Army of Syrian Kurdistan (YPG) spokesman Polat Can went even further, saying that Turkish forces were actively aiding ISIS. ‘There is more than enough evidence with us now proving that the Turkish army gives ISIS terrorists weapons, ammunitions and allows them to cross the Turkish official border crossings in order for ISIS terrorists to initiate inhumane attacks against the Kurdish people in Rojava [north-eastern Syria].’

Omer explained that during his time with ISIS, Turkey had been seen …” Read more.

Spiritual Brothers: Video Shows ISIS Fighters Strolling Up To Turkish Border Checkpoint For A Relaxing Chat With Guards – “A remarkable video has emerged purporting to show Islamic State militants chatting casually with a group of Turkish border guards near the besieged Syrian city of Kobane. The amateur footage, understood to have been filmed close to Zarova Hill in the outskirts of Kobane, raises serious questions about the apparently relaxed relationship between the terror group and officials from the Nato member state. It appears to show two heavily armed militants wandering nonchalantly up to the Turkish border fence – displaying shocking bravado as they smile and wave at the camera. They are met by what appears to be a …” Read more.
