Tennessee: Islamic State Sympathizers Hack Church Website, Posts Gruesome Jihadist Material

Qur’an Sura 8:59a, “The infidels should not think that they can get away from us. Prepare against them whatever arms and weaponry you can muster so that you may terrorize them …”

Terrorize non-Muslims by mustering whatever arms and weaponry you can, including computer keyboards …

By Leah Marieann Klett, The Gospel Herald – “In a show of hostility towards Christianity, Islamic State, or its sympathizers, hacked the website of Westminster Presbyterian Church, posting the statement ‘I love Islam and Jihadist,’ a gruesome video, and some very disturbing language.

According to Wate.com, the pastor of the 200 member church, Jim Richter was informed of the incident the next morning after receiving an email from a concerned church member. After contacting the organization that services the website, it became clear that the terrorist group had meant to target multiple churches in the area.

‘A lot of churches apparently and organizations that [the company] serve were hacked so it doesn’t appear to be something that is directed at our church,’ Richter said…

‘I think it’s terrifying, it’s hostile no matter what you say about it,’ Marty Conley, who lives in Johnson City said. ‘I thought that was really strange.’

Conley added that the hack brought the violence of the Islamic State far too close to home.

‘You don’t think about that type of thing happening in our area, I mean little town Johnson City, Tennessee.”

Juliette Monroe, who lives in a city neighboring Johnson City, told the Gospel Herald, ‘Whether this is just a prank or a real threat from ISIS, it’s incredibly disrespectful to the church and to Christianity in general … this is a very serious matter and very frightening for us living in this small community.’

The Westminster Presbyterian Church pastor added that the hacking of the church’s computer is evidence that spiritual attacks are a very real threat.” Read more.

Flashback: Ohio: Church Web Sites Replaced by Muslim Hacker Pushing for Conversion to Islam – “A computer hacker took control of more than a dozen church Web sites hosted by a Perrysburg designer this week, replacing their regular content with an appeal that Christians convert to Islam… ‘It was unnerving, but I think also it was an indicator to me of the different world we live in,’ said Mr. Dauer, the assistant pastor at Fallen Timbers… ‘It seemed like he was clearly trying to convert people. I don’t see how he could actually be successful with this, but he was talking about Christians converting to Islam,’ Mr. Leisure said.” Read more.

Flashback: Islamic Extremists Hack Websites Of Primary School And Church In Yorkshire – “Islamic extremists have hacked the websites of a primary school and a church and replaced their homepages with a hate message against the US and Israel. A group calling itself X-saad hijacked the sites of Sowerby Community Primary School and the Danish Church of Hull, both in Yorkshire, and replaced them with a sinister Islamic-State style page… The message that appeared on both websites included a picture of the US and Israeli flag with a red cross through it. It is on a black background, similar to an ISIS flag, with English writing in red and Arabic script in white. The statement reads: ‘We Hackers We defend our religion, we do not forget we are without limits we do not believe in the laws'” Read more.

Flashback: Canada: Ontario Church Website Hacked With ISIS Message – “Police in Barrie, Ont., are investigating after a local church’s website was hacked by someone proclaiming support for the Islamic State terror group and calling for the elimination of America. Someone posted what appears to be the ISIS logo and wrote ‘I love you ISIS’ on the Inniswood Baptist Church website Monday afternoon. A long, difficult-to-decipher message calling for the destruction of America was also posted on the site, along with images of fighter jets and bloody victims of attacks… Pro-ISIS messages also turned up two weeks ago on the University of New Brunswick student union site.” Read more.

    It is unfair to ask Christian missionaries in Islamic nations to take the incredible risks they are taking to talk to Muslims when we here in the West are unwilling to engage Muslims that are currently here. As one who is engaged with missionary work with Muslims in Colorado, (I call it that or critical, as opposed to uncritical, interfaith dialogue), I find that Muslims in the West are hungry for criticism of the Islamic ideology. Most Muslims, those not in the Islamic oligarchy are victims of an ideology that has kept them in poverty, oppression and constant violence since it came into being. If anyone is interested I have leaflets that I distribute to local Muslims that anyone is free to copy or use.

    I have contacted a number of missionary societies about this and I cannot find any who are currently doing any mission work with Western Muslims, although I am sure that there are some out there I have not heard of. The urgency of the matter was recently brought home by a statistic that said that 26% of prison inmates are becoming Muslims. This is frighteningly reminiscent of what happened in Germany when in the Weimar Republic the fledgling Nazi party recruited from the ranks of convicts what became the brownshirts.
