"Nigeria security has declared war against Christians in this country." — Pastor Kallamu Musa Ali Dikwa, executive director of Voice of Northern Christian Movement, Nigeria.
While uncritically taking in and conferring refugee status on countless Muslim migrants, European authorities continued singling out those most in need of sanctuary for deportation.
"Afghanistan is not a safe place for a Christian convert. The Court should ask Switzerland to stop turning a blind eye to the situation of religious minorities in Afghanistan... Sending a refugee back to a country where they face persecution because of their faith is incompatible with the Convention." — AFD International.
The Bishops' Conference of Nigeria described the area as "killing fields", like the ones the Khmer Rouge created in Cambodia to exterminate the population.
"We are Aramaic people and we don't have this right to have anyone protect us? Look upon us as frogs, we'll accept that -- just protect us so we can stay in our land". — Nicodemus Daoud Sharaf, the Syrian Orthodox Archbishop of Mosul the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan, home to many of the Christians who fled jihadis, National Catholic Register, April 7, 2017.
If the roles were reversed here, and Christians had murdered a Muslim imam for refusing to convert to Christianity, although such a murder would never happen and should never happen, there would be screaming international headlines.
It should have been expected that the behavior seen in Islamic countries would come to Western countries with open-door immigration policies.
Protège ton église (Protect Your Church), a group that aims to protect churches and holy sites in France, wrote: “This desecration is reminiscent of the place of Islamism in the acts of Christianophobes and the danger that this phenomenon represents for our churches and Christians around the world. France remembers Father Hamel murdered with this cry.”
“The attacks in Diiso, Saretho and Kamuthe were all preceded by credible information and intelligence from the public but the county security teams did not act as required.” Why not? Either cowardice, which is pandemic these days, or sympathy for the jihadis.
Islamic groups in the US have successfully protested against shoes that they claim bear the name of Allah. Will they protest against this? What do you think?
“It is a pity that empty slogans about tolerance and mutual respect, intended for naive Europeans, find fertile soil in Western media and mislead the public.” Indeed. The Kurds have become sainted martyrs since they can be used as ammunition against Trump. But this is the reality.
The issue of anti-Christian vandalism was rarely reported by the European media until February 2019, when vandals attacked nine churches within the space of two weeks. The issue made headlines again in April 2019, when a suspicious fire gutted the iconic Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. Since then, however, the European media are once again shrouding facts in silence.
Three of the Islamist judges known to preside over the trials of Christians are Mashallah Ahmadzadeh, Mohammed Moghiseh, and Ahmad Zargar. The international community needs to consider imposing sanctions on them.
Converts to Christianity from Islam, according the Iran's Islamic law, can face the death penalty. The Iranian Islamist judges generally resort to verses from the Quran and Hadith (Muhammad's sayings and acts) to justify their verdicts.
"You have this absurd situation where the scheme is set up to help Syrian refugees and the people most in need, Christians who have been 'genocided,' they can't even get into the U.N. camps to get the food. If you enter and say I am a Christian or convert, the Muslim U.N. guards will block you [from] getting in... and even threaten you..." — Paul Diamond, British Human Rights Lawyer, CBN News, December 4, 2019.
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: The ongoing international neglect of the plight of the Christians under PA rule could lead to the disappearance of Christianity in the place where it emerged.
Three grave events occurred recently involving Christians in the territories ruled by the Palestinian Authority (PA). They left no mark on either the world or the Israeli media because they are not connected to Israel.
In short, Palestinian Christians are suffering from the same patterns of persecution — including church attacks, kidnappings and forced conversion — that their coreligionists suffer in other Muslim nations. The difference, however, is that the persecution of Palestinian Christians has "received no coverage in the Palestinian media."
Of course. How could anything from the Qur’an be hateful or inciting?
The billboards quote this Qur’an passage: “O you who have believed, do not take the Jews and the Christians as friends or allies. They are friends and allies of one another. And whoever is an ally to them among you – then indeed, he is of them. Indeed, Allah guides not the wrongdoing people.” (5:51)
An emergency relief expert in the Middle East has warned of a second genocide of Christians in the region.
Fr Andrzej Halemba, head of Middle East projects at Aid to the Church in Need (ACN), said that Christians could face total eradication from countries such as Iraq and Syria, where they have existed since the time of Christ's first apostles.
“Austrian police said on Monday they have foiled a terrorist plot to attack crowded targets in Austria, Germany, France, and Luxembourg during the holiday season, including the Christmas market at St. Stephen’s Cathedral in Vienna.” Every year at Christmastime, Europeans are at heightened risk for jihad attacks, yet still they keep on electing leaders who promote instability through open-door immigration.
Sharia Watch: This ia an example of soft-jihad! In Islam Jesus is viewed as just another prophet not the son of God, whereas Muhammad is viewed as the successor prophet to Jesus which he, as a mortal, could not be if Jesus is seen as the son of God. Thus this seemingly small act is, in reality, a statement of Islamic supremacism over Christianity! It is actually an act of profound significance and acceptance is another sign of dhimmitude in our view.
"Those we are helping now can give us the greatest help in saving Europe. We are giving persecuted Christians what they need: homes, hospitals, and schools, and we receive in return what Europe needs most: a Christian faith, love and perseverance". — Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, Daily News Hungary, November 28, 2019.
Preliminary reports from Egyptian authorities said that all three fires appeared to be accidents related to electrical or circuit failures, not arson.... General opinion among Christians, however, is that the fires were "not a coincidence."
"The fire started from the wooden ceiling of the adjacent hall." Video footage, he added, indicated that something from the market behind the church was hurled onto its roof. — Fr. Samuel, St. George Church in Mansoura, World Watch Monitor, November 11, 2019.
Why should it be anti-Muslim or "Islamophobic" to write about the effects of jihad or the conservative Muslim treatment of unbelievers? The facts are well established within international bodies, NGOs, national commissions, and verifiable journalistic reports. Reformist Muslims themselves are highly critical of the discriminatory laws and behaviours in countries from which they or their forebearers originated.
Indeed, it is precisely Muslims of a reformist and liberal bent who are most vocal about radical restrictions on the values that other Muslims claim are universal.
Let us be clear. No doubt, there will probably always be people, call them the real "Islamophobes", who will use problems within Muslim states or communities to try to tar Islam or Muslims as a whole. But these and other issues still need to be faced as authentic human rights concerns.
A particularly widespread problem for Christians in Muslim countries is the ban on Christian proselytization.... While Christian and secular countries rightly permit Muslims to preach, convert, and instruct non-Muslims, 25 Muslim states forbid proselytization and have laws saying that Muslims who convert to another faith may be put to death as apostates.
Liberalized versions of Islam have in the past few decades been suppressed by fundamentalist takeovers of entire societies. It is therefore hard to believe that countries such as Iran, Saudi Arabia, or Turkey will return quickly to the moderation they had developed in the previous century. If there is hope for good relations between non-Muslims and Muslims, it must rest, as has already begun, with the Muslims in liberal democracies.... The British organization Muslims Against Antisemitism, is a shining example; in America, the American Islamic Forum for Democracy is another. They should be treasured and helped.
“We who have grown up here know what Islam is. It is not the people, the Muslims, that I warn about, but the ideology. Although most Muslims don’t believe in jihad, they believe in Mohammad. They believe that all peoples should become Muslims and that there is a reward in heaven for those who bring people to Islam. If Islamists gain power, they will not treat you according to human rights, but according to Sharia law. Love the Muslims, but be aware. Jesus says we should be cunning as snakes and innocent as doves.”
We have seen jihad attacks on churches during services in Sri Lanka, Egypt, and elsewhere. And now this. Yet the establishment media is too busy insisting that Islam is a religion of peace, and demonizing those who point out that it is not, to take any notice. Don’t expect coverage anywhere close to the level given to the mosque attacks in New Zealand.
Any honest and objective appraisal of Islam’s historic jihad on the Christian world must be eye-opening, to say the very least. In the first century of its existence (between 632-732) Islam permanently conquered, Arabized, and Islamized nearly three-quarters of the Christian world, thereby permanently severing it. Europe came to be known as “the West” because it was literally the remaining and westernmost appendage of Christendom not to be swallowed up by Islam.
For roughly a millennium thereafter, Arabs, Berbers, Turks, and Tatars—all of whom called and saw themselves as Muslims—launched raid after raid, all justified and lauded as jihads, into virtually every corner of Europe. They reached as far as Iceland and provoked the U.S. into its first war as a nation. The devastation was indescribable; some regions in Europe, particularly in Spain and the Balkans, remain uninhabitable due to the incessant raiding. Some 15 million Europeans were enslaved during this perennial jihad and, according to contemporary records, treated horrifically.
The death penalty for apostasy is part of Islamic law. It’s based on the Qur’an: “They wish you would disbelieve as they disbelieved so you would be alike. So do not take from among them allies until they emigrate for the cause of Allah. But if they turn away, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them and take not from among them any ally or helper.” (Qur’an 4:89)
He wanted them to submit to his commands. Islamic law mandates a second-class status for Christians, in which they “pay the jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued” (Qur’an 9:29). When they refused, he considered it permissible to attack them, as they had forfeited the protection that submission allows for.
Non-Catholics have lived in Italy for centuries. What is different now? Now there is in Italy a population of non-Catholics among whom are some radically intolerant people who believe that Christianity in all its forms is a twisting and hijacking of the true teachings of Jesus the prophet of Islam. And the principle is always and everywhere the same: in Muslim countries, one must conform one’s behavior to Muslim sensibilities.
"These regulations [from 2006] stipulate that all places of non-Muslim worship must be licenced. However, the government has yet to issue any licence for a church buildings [sic] under this ordinance, ignoring applications from churches to regularise their status in accordance with the ordinance." — International Christian Response, September 25, 2019, Algeria.
An Islamic school which stocked books promoting support for the Taliban, anti-semitic and anti-Christian messages and misogyny is among nine independent faith schools to be warned over failings in newly-published
Admin: This isn't a plug for Christianity by Sharia Watch but we believe it provides a stark example of the differences in basic values between the two 'faiths'.
In a room in a secret location, somewhere in the Middle East, 12 young Christians sit in front of a whiteboard in a trauma care session led by an Open Doors’ counselor. Five years ago, she was a devout Muslim—when she remembers herself in that period of her life, she calls herself a “fanatic” for Islam. She was also hiding a secret: She was desperately afraid of so many things. She would harm herself, even to the point of considering suicide. She would lay awake at night, terrified of what would happen to her when she died.
ISIS’s official Amaq media outlet claimed responsibility saying:“Two Christian priests were killed today, ISIS shot them down.” ICC said the attack happened as three nearly simultaneous car bombings occurred in the city of Qamishli. One of the explosions occurred near a Chaldean church.
