Iraq: Church leaders plead for Govt protection in Mosul

This is not the first time they ask for the protection:

Church leaders in Iraq have issued a statement demanding government action to end a campaign of violence against Christians in Mosul. A joint message from Catholic and Orthodox prelates calls attention to "a premeditated plan to place pressure on Christian Churches, to achieve a certain agenda." Decrying the failure of government officials to take effective action despite five execution-style murders within a week, the Church leaders said that the lack of security creates "the impression that we are unwanted in this city, which is our homeland."

It won’t be the last, I’m afraid.

Gaza: Hamas terrorism against Christians

Voice of Martyrs’ persecution alert

Iraq:

A 75-year-old Christian was shot and killed in Mosul, Iraq on January 11. Hikmat Sleiman had just returned home from closing his grocery shop when a group of assailants opened fire, killing him instantly. Local Christians see his murder and the string of other attacks against believers in recent months (click here for more information) as evidence of “ethnic cleansing” designed to force Christians from the area.

Pakistan:

On December 26, two Pakistani Christians, Imran Masih (21) and Khushi Masih (24), were shot for refusing to convert to Islam while at a wedding in Chak 297-JB, Punjab province. Shortly after the believers arrived at the wedding, a group of armed Muslim youths surrounded them and began shooting into the air, as is a customary show of celebration at village weddings. However, one of the Muslims then threatened to shoot Imran and Khushi if they did not recite the Islamic profession of faith. The Christians refused and instead recited Psalm 91. The infuriated Muslims then shot the believers in the chest and left them for dead. At last report, the believers were receiving treatment at a hospital and doctors were hopeful that they would make a full recovery. Police have yet to arrest the suspects, who have claimed that the shootings were an accident. (Source: Compass Direct)

China:

On December 25, Chinese authorities disrupted a Christmas celebration in Korla City, Xinjiang province and arrested several elderly Christians. One of the believers, Wang Qiuyue (71), was seized roughly and thrown against a police car. Her furniture was then set on fire as she looked on. Authorities also broke into the home of He Cuiying (69), who is half-paralyzed and confined to her bed, and set fire to 30 Bibles and other religious literature.

On the afternoon of January 8, 30 leaders of the Chinese House Church Alliance were detained in Handan City, Hebei province after a group of officers from the Public Security and Religious Affairs Bureaus barged into their Bible study. The 30 men and women were then forcefully taken to an unknown interrogation centre within the city. At last report, the authorities were threatening some of the detained pastors with 15 days of administrative detention. (Source: ChinaAid)

Yemen:

Anthony S. Authorities in Yemen have reportedly started negotiations for the release of six Christian hostages — a family of five from Germany and a British engineer — who were kidnapped along with three other women in June (click here for more information). The bodies of the women, Rita Stumpp (26), Anita Gruenwald (24) and Eom Young-sun (33), were found shortly after the kidnapping. Until recently, however, the state of Johannes (37), his wife Sabine (37) and their children, Lydia (5), Anna (3) and Simon (1), as well as Anthony was unknown. The kidnappers have demanded a ransom of $2 million USD as well as immunity, free passage and a guarantee that they will not be handed over to neighbouring Saudi Arabia.

Islam 2010

Article by Horacio Vázquez-Rial published at Revista LD (Translation and links added by T&P):

“One day millions  of men will abandon the South to break into the North. And they won’t be doing it as friends. They will be there as conquerors. ANd they will conquer it colonizing it thanks to their sons. It will be the wombs of our women what will give us the victory”. (Houari Boumedienne, UN, 1974).

That was the beginning, and my readers will be absolutely bored of me writing quoting that once and again. To ease the tiredness they must be feeling, I will add other quotes this time:

We have 50 million Muslims living in Europe now and there are signals that God will proclaim Islam in Europe without weapons nor conquests. As time goes by, the 50 million Muslims in Europe will transform it and will convert it into an Islamic continent. God has arranged that an Islamic nation, Turkey, adds itself to the European Union. Those 50 million Muslims will multiply and there will be 100 million Muslims in Europe. Bosnia is a member of the European Union [sic]  and its a Muslim country; moreover, at least more than 50% of its population are Muslims. Statistics show that there are thousands of mosques in Europe. We have thousands of Islamic organizations and societies in Europe (…) I have here some statistics. There are 50 million Muslims in Europe nowadays, 14,000 mosques and Islamic centers and 1,500 Islamic societies and organizations. Those numbers are nothing but booming, to whom we have to add the numbers related to Bosnia, Turkey and Albania. Therefore, the words that God proclaimed in the Quram are just coming to reality: “It is Him that has sent His Messenger with the Address and the true religion to make it prevail over every other religion, despite the infidels” (Muammar El-Gadaffi, 2008).

Egypt: Violence against Christian Copts on Christmas

Firstly, a man is burned, his father stabbed and a brother beaten because of a rumour:

The events took place in the small village of “Dmas” Meet-Ghamr, after a rumor spread around of a relationship between the 25-year-old Copt Shihata Sabri, and the sister of a Muslim man named Yasser Ahmed Qasim.

Yasser went to Coptic Shehata, holding a gasoline canister, poured it over him and set him on fire, as bystanders looked on in horror. The young Copt threw himself into the adjacent canal to try to put out the flames from his burning body. The fire left burns all over his body, leading to his death.

via The naked truth is still taboo: Muslim Burns a Young Copt Alive and Murders His Father Because of a Rumor!!!.

Then Al-Jazeera reports that “clashes” happened after a Muslim mob killed 6 Christians again for a rumour: the alleged rape of a Muslim girl by a Christian man. You know, why waiting to know the truth when you can kill several Christians because of rumour:

Clashes have broken out in southern Egypt between more than 2,000 Christian Copts and police after the Christmas Eve killing of six Copts in a drive-by shooting, police officials say.

Fighting erupted outside a hospital morgue on Thursday where the bodies of the Christians killed the previous day were kept, with protesters hurling stones at police, the official said.

Six male churchgoers and a security guard were shot dead outside a church in Egypt as Christians left a late night mass, Bishop Kirollos of the Nag Hammadi Diocese said.

… Kirollos said he had an idea of who the attackers were, calling them “Muslim radicals”.

It is all religious now. This is a religious war about how they can finish off the Christians in Egypt,” he said.

Christians, mostly Coptic, account for about 10 per cent of Egypt’s 83-million predominantly Muslim population.

Isn’t this wonderful? A rumour says a 12-year-old girl had been raped by a Christian man (bastard! if he did it, whatever his religion). So, logically, they go to a church and shoot randomly to the churchgoers because they are… Christians.

Times:

An Amnesty International report said sectarian attacks on the Coptic Christian community, comprising between 6 million and 8 million people in Egypt, increased in 2008. Sporadic clashes between Coptic Christians and Muslims left eight people dead.

Three men have been arrested, reports BBC.

Iraq: Catholic student kidnapped in Mosul, intimidation campaign continues

I’m sure this is not going to open any news bulletin tomorrow:

A Christian student at the University of Mosul was kidnapped on December 28; Islamic militants claimed responsibility. The abduction was the latest in a series of attacks on the city’s minority Christians, including murders, bombings, and other kidnappings. Christian leaders believe that Islamic zealots have begun a campaign of “ethnic and religious cleansing,” hoping to drive Christians out of the region through intimidation.

Religious cleasing in Islamic countries

As ever no important MSM is reporting about them. This video refers to Christian persecution under Palestinian authority:

The Palestinian Constitution “guarantees freedom of religion”, while stating that Islam is the official religion and Shariah Law one of the sources of legislation”, “so any Muslim who converts to other faith must be killed”. “Western leaders say that Palestine is moving to a democratic state”.

Oh, yeah, don’t make me laugh!!! This is called religious cleansing in my language. If a democracy is based on the equality of all people under the law and the rule of law, the mere mention of Shariah Law as one the sources of legislation ends with that “democracy”. But of course, that’s what exists nowadays in Iraq and Afghanistan, so in the end, the conclusion must be that Western leaders are not supporting real democracy, but some sort of imitation.
