Burned Alive: ISIS Reportedly Forcing Christians Into Coffins, Setting Them On Fire

01/08/2016 1 comment

How long, O Lord? To the Islamist mindset, burning Christians to death is perfectly acceptable, but don’t even think about ever burning a single page of the “holy” Qur’an …

Hadith, Tabari 9:69, “Killing Unbelievers [non-Muslims] is a small matter to us” – The Words of Mohammad, “Prophet” of Islam

Qur’an Sura 24:2, “Let not compassion move you from carrying out [Allah’s] law …”

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 …”

Titus 1:2, 2:13,In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began … Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing [epiphaneiaof the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ …”

2 Thessalonians 2:8, “And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness [epiphaneia] of His coming.”

Flashback: Moments Before Four Iraqi Fighters Are Burned Alive By ISIS

By Raymond Ibrahim, Jihad Watch – “According to the recently published testimony of Karam Sa‘ad — a former sergeant in the Iraqi army who was imprisoned and tortured by the Islamic State in June 2014 but recently escaped — ISIS engages in atrocities that the West remains largely ignorant of.  Among these and in the words of the escapee:

They [ISIS] tormented them [Christians] in horrendous ways and many of them died [from the torture] during their captivity….  They used to put them inside what resembled coffins and then set them on fire from the inside.

The Western world was horrified when ISIS set a Jordanian pilot on fire, but as more escapees and former hostages share their experiences, it appears that such savagery is the tip of the iceberg.” Source – Jihad Watch.

Tribulation: Euro Parliament President Says Christians Are No Longer Safe In Europe

12/03/2015 1 comment

Anyone care to venture a guess as to why? …

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

Hadith, Muslim 2889, “Verily Allah has shown me the eastern and western part of the earth, and I saw the authority of my Ummah (Islamic nation) dominate all that I saw.”

Revelation 13:15, “… the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed.”

By Thomas D. Williams, Breitbart – “In a high-level meeting on religious persecution in Brussels, the President of the European Parliament (EP) said that Europe cannot afford to continue ignoring the fate of Christians, who are ‘clearly the most persecuted group’ in the world.

In Wednesday’s meeting, EP President Martin Schulz said that the persecution of Christians is ‘undervalued’ and does not receive enough attention, which has also meant that it ‘hasn’t been properly addressed.’

Schulz’s concerns were echoed by EP Vice President Antonio Tajani, who warned that Europe sometimes ‘falls into the temptation of thinking we can ignore this task,’ referring to the protection Christians throughout the world who suffer persecution.

Speakers cited the work of Open Doors, a human rights organization that monitors the persecution of Christians, noting that 150 million Christians worldwide suffer torture, rape and arbitrary imprisonment. Christians in Iraq, Somalia, Syria, Pakistan, North Korea and Nigeria are among those hardest hit.

The Open Doors report for 2015 found that ‘Islamic extremism is by far the most significant persecution engine’ of Christians in the world today and that ’40 of the 50 countries on the World Watch List are affected by this kind of persecution.’

For Islamists, Tajani said, Christians are the new ‘crusaders’ of Europe, and because of Islamic persecution in the Middle East more than 70 percent of Christians have fled Iraq since 2003, with another 700 thousand Christians who have been forced to leave their home in Syria since the outbreak of civil war.

‘Each month 200 churches and places of worship in the world are attacked and destroyed. Every day and in every region of the world, there are new cases of persecution against Christians,’ said Tajani.

‘No religious community is as subject to hatred, violence and systematic aggression as the Christians,’ he said…

‘It should shake us up,’ said Schulz, ‘that on our continent, Christians are not safe.'” Read more.

Filled with great wrath, Satan’s next battle plan against the Most High is to now destroy the elect of God, those ‘who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ’ (12:17). How? Through mass deception of a different body of people whose primary focus would become the conversion or elimination of everyone who opposed them (cf. Revelation 20:3). Satan’s new plan of attack sets up for himself a people who would be conformed to his own image in order to achieve the goal of destroying the elect of God.

After a relative lull, Islamic persecution has literally exploded once again in the aftermath of 9/11 and the rise of the Arab Spring. The Prophet Daniel writes that this final Beast would be ‘dreadful and terrifying’ and would ‘speak out against the Most High and wear down the saints of the Highest One’ and ‘intend to make alterations in times and in law’ (Daniel 7:7, 25).

Mali: Dozens Slaughtered After Muslim Gunmen Storm Hotel, Search For Non-Muslims To Kill

11/20/2015 Leave a comment

Devout Muslims are spreading the “peaceful message” of the all-compassionate and all-merciful Allah from here to Timbuktu. Literally …

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

malimapBy Meg Wagner, New York Daily News – “At least 27 people were killed when 10 Al Qaeda gunmen stormed the Radisson Blu Hotel in Mali’s capital and took 170 hostages — but the grenade-toting assailants spared the Muslims inside.

The hostage situation ended Friday when Mali troops, backed by U.S. Special Forces and a unit from France, freed dozens of the hostages, including six Americans.

Security forces killed two of the militants during their rescue operation, and the troops are still battling the rest of the gunmen who are holed up in the five-star hotel.

‘The attackers no longer have hostages,’ Mali security ministry spokesman Amadou Sangho said. ‘They are alone with the Malian special forces who are trying to dislodge them.’

The gunmen arrived in a diplomatic car and locked in 140 guests and 30 employees inside the Bamako resort Friday morning. By the end of the bloody raid, 27 bodies were found inside the hotel after the attack, a U.N. peacekeeper said.

Al-Mourabitoun, an African Jihadist group affiliated with al Qaeda, claimed responsibility for the attack.

The armed Islamic attackers, who shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ as they overran the resort, released hostages who were able to recite the Koran, a security source said.” Read more.

Italian Police: Christians Killed After Muslim Migrants Throw Them All Overboard

If there was ever a reason to implement a stringent “religious test” and separate the wheat from the chaff, this alone is enough …

Psalm 37:32, “The wicked watches the righteous, and seeks to slay him.”

Qur’an Sura 9:14, 30, “Fight them, Allah will punish them by your hands and bring them to disgrace … even if they are of the People of the Book [Christians] … may Allah destroy them …”

Boston: The Unfortunate, Yet Unsurprising, Aftermath Of Muslim Immigration

By Ralph Sideway, Jihad Watch – “This crime is identical to this story from back in April 2015. How many such Muslim attacks on migrant Christians go unreported?

I wrote at that time:

The Muslim attack on Christians in a migrant boat crossing the Mediterranean is a sign of our times, a dark symbol and metaphor for a future which is rapidly beginning to come into focus:

We are all in a boat together, but there is a band of people in our boat which seeks to throw the rest of us overboard, to kill us, to sink and drown us, to eliminate us.

The fate of the murdered Christian migrants is the image of our future, unless we too form a human chain to resist our attackers.

‘Italian Police: Muslim Migrants Threw Christians Overboard,’ By Hada Messia, Livia Borghese and Jason Hanna, AINA, November 20, 2015:

Rome (CNN) — Muslims who were among migrants trying to get from Libya to Italy in a boat this week threw 12 fellow passengers overboard — killing them — because the 12 were Christians, Italian police said Thursday.

Italian authorities have arrested 15 people on suspicion of murdering the Christians at sea, police in Palermo, Sicily, said.

The original group of 105 people left Libya on Tuesday in a rubber boat. Sometime during the trip north across the Mediterranean Sea, the alleged assailants — Muslims from the Ivory Coast, Mali and Senegal — threw the 12 overboard, police said.

Other people on the voyage told police that they themselves were spared “because they strongly opposed the drowning attempt and formed a human chain,” Palermo police said.

The boat was intercepted by an Italian navy vessel, which transferred the passengers to a Panamanian-flagged ship. That ship docked in Palermo on Wednesday, after which the arrests were made, police said.

The 12 who died were from Nigeria and Ghana, police said.

Thousands of people each year make the dangerous sea journey from North Africa to Europe’s Mediterranean coast, often aboard vessels poorly equipped for the trip. Many of them attempt the voyage to flee war and poverty in Africa and the Middle East.

More than 10,000 people have arrived on Italian shores from Libya since last weekend alone, according to the Italian coast guard.

Many die each year while attempting the voyage, often when boats capsized. Last year at least 3,200 died trying to make the trip. Since 2000, according to the International Organization for Migration, almost 22,000 people have died fleeing across the Mediterranean.

The IOM reported Thursday the latest boat to sink in trying to make the journey. Only four people survived from the original 45 on board, bringing the estimated death toll so far this year close to a thousand.

Spain: Muslims Break Into Church, Destroy Crosses And Spray Paint “Allah” On Walls

11/04/2015 1 comment

A spokesman for the church said that what these vandals did “was not representative of all Muslims.” True, it wasn’t. But it was definitely representative of Islam. According to Islamic teachings, for example, a “Muslim Jesus” will one day return to earth and destroy all crosses and Christianity. Unsurprisingly, as Islamic fundamentalism metastasizes across the Islamic world, more and more devout followers seem to be jumping at every opportunity to give their “Muslim Jesus” a head start. Although there are Muslims today who remain “peaceful” insofar as acts of violence are concerned, they do not remain “peaceful” because of the teachings of Islam. They remain “peaceful” in spite of them …

Hadith, AbuHurayrah Book 37, Number 4310, “Jesus … will descent (to the earth)… He will fight the people for the cause of Islam. He will break the cross, kill swine, and abolish jizyah. Allah will perish all religions except Islam.”

Qur’an Sura 3:85, “… whoever desires a religion other than Islam, it shall not be accepted from him, and in the hereafter he shall be one of the losers [in hell].”

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 Tom Parfitt, Daily Express – “ISLAMIC vandals were today being blamed for breaking into a church and spray-painting ‘Allah’ on the walls and destroying holy objects.

The attackers smashed wooden statues of the Virgin Mary and Jesus on the cross during the shocking attack earlier this week.

They stormed the Church of our Lady of Carmen in the Spanish town of Rincon de la Victoria, Andalucia on Monday morning.

Spain’s Civil Guard has now launched a probe into the vandalism.

A spokesman for the Diocese of Malaga said the attack – first discovered by priest Agustin Carrasco – was not representative of all Muslims.

He also said it was committed to maintaining ‘respect and fraternity between different religious groups’.

Last month a Moroccan man was arrested in the same town after allegedly trying to damage another statue of the Virgin Mary.

The 27-year-old repeatedly launched a large rock at a wall protecting the statue.

He is also said to have shouted the Arabic phrase ‘Allahu Akbar’ – meaning ‘God is great’ [ICA: “Allahu Akbar” actually means “Allah is Greater”] – while being led away from the shrine by police.” Read more.

Christian Leader Receives Response After Inviting ISIS Leaders To Dialogue Dinner: “We’ll Chop Your Head Off”

11/02/2015 2 comments

Before Islam’s “prophet” died, his final marching orders outlined how all true Muslims were to negotiate and “dialogue” with non-Muslims. Sadly, it involved little more than cutting off heads and then declaring that “Allah” was somehow greater …

Qur’an Sura 24:2, “Let not compassion move you from carrying out [Allah’s] law …”

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

By Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch – “Here in a nutshell is the encounter between Postmodern Man and the Man given to ancient and ineluctable realities of human nature. One wants to talk it all out, the other wants to kill. That’s all there is to it. One thinks we ought to be able to rise above all that, and the other doesn’t want to.

The Christian leaders of the West are so fanatically committed to ‘dialogue’ with Muslim leaders that they ruthlessly ostracize and silence anyone who dares speak about the reasons why Canon Andrew White’s people are being persecuted. White’s own experience with his dinner invitation, however, shows how futile and self-defeating that ‘dialogue’ really is: it hasn’t saved a single Christian from persecution, or changed a single Muslim’s mind about the necessity to persecute Christians. White himself has no illusions: ‘You can’t negotiate with them. I have never said that about another group of people. These are really so different, so extreme, so radical, so evil.’ But if he repeats that in the comfortable and complacent rectories of the West, he is liable to be charged with ‘Islamophobia.’

‘Canon Andrew White: ‘Vicar of Baghdad’ on leading a church in Iraq and being in the crosshairs of Isis,’ by Cole Moreton, Independent, November 1, 2015 (thanks to Lookmann):

They were coming for him and his people. Friends were being killed or fleeing for their lives. So Andrew White did what he always does when faced with an enemy. “I invited the leaders of Isis [Islamic State] for dinner. I am a great believer in that. I have asked some of the worst people ever to eat with me.”

This extraordinarily self-confident priest is best known as the vicar of Baghdad, leader of a church in the chaos outside the protected Green Zone. He made his offer last year as the terrorist forces threatened to take the city. Did he get a reply?

“Isis said, ‘You can invite us to dinner, but we’ll chop your head off.’ So I didn’t invite them again!”

And he roars with laughter, despite believing that Islamic State has put a huge price on his head, apparently willing to pay $157m (£100m) to anyone who can kill this harmless-looking eccentric. Canon White was a doctor before he became a priest and could be one still, in his colourful bow-tie and double-breasted blazer with a pocket square spilling silk. But appearances are deceptive.

For the last two decades, he has worked as a mediator in some of the deadliest disputes on Earth, in Israel and Palestine, Iraq and Nigeria. He has sat down to eat with terrorists, extremists, warlords and the sons of Saddam Hussein, with presidents and prime ministers.

White has been shot at and kidnapped, and was once held captive in a room littered with other people’s severed fingers and toes, until he talked his way out of it. He is an Anglican priest but was raised a Pentecostal and has that church’s gift of the gab, even though multiple sclerosis (MS) makes him drawl like a posh barfly. “When I went on Radio 4 talking about Baghdad there were complaints because they thought I was drunk. I wasn’t!”

MS also affects his vision and his balance, but he claims to have come up with his own way of keeping the symptoms down, by injecting his own stem cells. A big man with a boyish enthusiasm, he declares himself afraid of nothing, not even the direct threat to his life.

“They’ve not sent an email telling me it’s off,” says White, 50, chuckling and looking at his travelling companion Terry, a former policeman. How does it feel to have that price on his head? “It feels good.” Terry raises his eyebrows and mutters, “While the head’s attached.”

It’s knockabout stuff, but let’s put this in context. White reopened St George’s church after the invasion of Iraq even though civil war raged and the diplomats and ex-pats who had once made up the congregation no longer dared to go there.

Iraqis came instead, and the congregation reached a peak of 6,500. They built a school, a clinic and food bank. White pledged to stay even as the sound of bombs grew louder. “We had Isis on the doorstep of Baghdad last year. I said to my people, ‘I will not leave you; don’t leave me.’ But many did leave me and they went to Nineveh and Mosul. Isis were there too. There was total mayhem.”

More than 1,200 men, women and children who worshipped with him have been killed in recent years, he says. Four boys he knew were beheaded because they refused to swear allegiance to Islam. The church caretaker was forced to watch as his five-year-old boy was cut in half.

There used to be 1.5 million Christians in Iraq but now there are only 260,000, he says. Some are calling it genocide. Surely he no longer believes that negotiations with Isis could work? White stares at me from behind owlish spectacles. “Can I be honest? You are absolutely right. You can’t negotiate with them. I have never said that about another group of people. These are really so different, so extreme, so radical, so evil.”

So what is to be done? “We must try and continue to keep the door open. We have to show that there is a willingness to engage. There are good Sunni leaders; they are not all evil like Isis.”

But surely there is only one logical conclusion to be drawn? He sighs, and answers slowly. “You are asking me how we can deal radically with Isis. The only answer is to radically destroy them. I don’t think we can do it by dropping bombs. We have got to bring about real change. It is a terrible thing to say as a priest.

“You’re probably thinking, ‘So you’re telling me there should be war?’ Yes!” …

Report: ISIS Is Sending Assassins Into UN Refugee Camps To Murder Christians

10/25/2015 2 comments

John 16:2b-3, “… the time is coming that whoever kills you will think that he offers God service. And these things they will do to you because they have not known the Father nor Me.”

Aside from the Second Coming, what’s to stop them from targeting all Christians in general? Fortunately, one of the assassins “renounced his jihad” and refused to carry out his orders after “witnessing the love of the Christians.” Even in the darkest of times, love can still triumph over hate …

John 13:34-35, “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”

By Nick Gutteridge, Sunday Express – “ISLAMIC STATE (ISIS) assassins are infiltrating refugee camps and MURDERING Christians in their beds, it was claimed today.

The fanatical jihadis are sending teams of trained killers into camps disguised as refugees to kidnap and kill vulnerable Christians.

But refugees are terrified to report many of the killings in case they are targeted next, according to aid workers.

The horrifying tactic emerged after one terrorist got cold feet and renounced jihad after witnessing Christians helping out other refugees within the camp.

He then revealed that he had been sent with an Islamist hit squad to eliminate Christians as part of the hate group’s ideological drive to wipe the religion off the map.

Express.co.uk has revealed how Christianity could disappear from the Middle East within five years as fanatical fundamentalists ramp up their campaign of persecution.

An aid worker at a Unite4d Nations (UN) run camp in Jordan, who did not wish to be named for fear of reprisals, revealed that the jihadis are also kidnapping young refugee girls to sell on as sex slaves.

He said: ‘The Muslim gangs come as refugees, but they have their agendas.’

‘They’re like a mafia. People are even killed inside the camps, and the refugees are afraid to say if they saw somebody get killed. If you ask them, they’ll say, ‘I don’t know, I was asleep.”

Britain has pledged to take 20,000 people in from such camps in the last five years.

But there are fears that hundreds of jihadis could disguise themselves as refugees in a bid to reach the UK, where they will plot terror attacks on our streets.” Read more.
