Saudi Embassy Linked With Terrorist Funding in Ethiopia

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on October 29, 2012

My note: Not surprising, at all! What’s irresponsible and disgraceful is we still send our beloved sisters, export fresh fruits and vegetables to the twisted satandom of Saudi Arabia. How is that possible?

The wife of a senior Ethiopian politician was on Monday charged with funneling money from the Embassy of Saudi Arabia to Islamist terror groups, at a hearing at the Ethiopian Federal High Court, on Monday.

Habiba Mohammed, wife of former Minister for the Civil Service Junedin Sado, was one of 29 Muslim activists accused of criminal conspiracy to commit unspecified acts of terrorism — charges that could attract the death penalty.

Those arrested were accused of belonging to, or supporting, the “Solution Seekers of the Muslim Community’s Problems”, a group that the prosecution contended is a terrorist organization. Lawyers for the accused denied the charges.

A predominantly Christian country, Ethiopia has positioned itself as a bulwark in the U.S.-led war on terror in East Africa and has promulgated laws, such as the anti-terrorism proclamation 652 of 2009, which have an unusually broad definition of terrorism.

According to the prosecution, Ms. Habiba allegedly tried to steal 1.5 million Ethiopian Birr (approximately Rs. 45 lakh) from the Islamic Council of Ethiopia. He also allegedly received more than 50,000 ETB from the Saudi Arabian Embassy to fund “illegal activities” amongst Ethiopia’s Muslim population.

She was arrested in July this year and the money was recovered from her car, according to local media reports. The Embassy of Saudi Arabia could not be reach for comment.

Christians Persecuted Throughout The World

Imagine the unspeakable fury that would erupt across the Islamic world if a Christian-led government in Khartoum had been responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Sudanese Muslims over the past 30 years. Or if Christian gunmen were firebombing mosques in Iraq during Friday prayers. Or if Muslim girls in Indonesia had been abducted and beheaded on their way to school, because of their faith.

Such horrors are barely thinkable, of course. But they have all occurred in reverse, with Christians falling victim to Islamist aggression. Only two days ago, a suicide bomber crashed a jeep laden with explosives into a packed Catholic church in Kaduna, northern Nigeria, killing at least eight people and injuring more than 100. The tragedy bore the imprint of numerous similar attacks by Boko Haram (which roughly translates as “Western education is sinful”), an exceptionally bloodthirsty militant group.

Other notable trouble spots include Egypt, where 600,000 Copts – more than the entire population of Manchester – have emigrated since the 1980s in the face of harassment or outright oppression.

Why is such a huge scourge chronically under-reported in the West? One result of this oversight is that the often inflated sense of victimhood felt by many Muslims has festered unchallenged. Take the fallout of last month’s protests around the world against the American film about the Prophet Mohammed. While most of the debate centred on the rule of law and the limits of free speech, almost nothing was said about how much more routinely Islamists insult Christians, almost always getting away with their provocations scot-free.

Innocence of Muslims, the production that spurred all the outrage, has been rightly dismissed as contemptible trash. What, though, of a website such as “Guardians of the Faith”, run by Salafist extremists in Cairo? Among many posts, it has carried an article entitled “Why Muslims are superior to Copts”. “Being a Muslim girl whose role models are the wives of the Prophet, who were required to wear the hijab, is better than being a Christian girl, whose role models are whores,” it declares. “Being a Muslim who fights to defend his honour and his faith is better than being a Christian who steals, rapes, and kills children.” Hateful messages breed hateful acts. Is it any surprise that mobs have set fire to one church after another across Egypt in recent years?

The deeper truth masked by all the ranting – and, it should be added, by the blinkers of many Western secularists – is that Christians are targeted in greater numbers than any other faith group on earth. About 200 million church members (10 per cent of the global total) face discrimination or persecution: it just isn’t fashionable to say so. In 2010, I set out to write a chronicle of anti-Christian persecution on several continents. Published in my book, Christianophobia, the results of my research are even more disquieting than I expected.

Christian Preacher Blames Sodomites, Obama and Romney for Frankenstorm

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on October 29, 2012

My note: Today, Ethiopians are marking their national flag day — and somebody has chosen to paint the tropical storm, above, in the Ethiopian flag-tricolor. Well, NASA seems to have discovered the birthplace of most of these Storms and Hurricanes. For now, dear Americans, please stop performing satanic rituals like “Halloween” — and repent!

God is systematically destroying America. Just look at what has happened this year

There was an incredible heatwave and drought that destroyed massive amounts of the crops.

This drought has not let up and now covers about 65 percent of the country. The drought triggered record forest fires in the West.

The East was not affected by the drought, but now the most powerful hurricane on record is heading directly towards Philadelphia and New York City. It could do catastrophhic damage to the entire Northeast!

If you add the area of the drought and now the hurricane together, it would be about 80 percent of the country! As I said, the Holy God of Israel is systematically destroying America right before our eyes.

Just last August, Hurricane Isaac hit New Orleans seven years later, on the exact day of Hurricane Katrina. Both hit during the week of the homosexual event called Southern Decadence in New Orleans!

Hurricane Sandy is hitting 21 years to the day of the Perfect Storm of October 20, 1991. I write about this in my book as America Has Done to Israel. This was the day that President George Bush Sr. initiated the Madrid Peace Process to divide the land of Israel, including Jerusalem. America has been under God’s judgment since this event.

Both of these hurricanes were caused by freakish weather patterns that came together to create Twenty-one years breaks down to 7 x 3, which is a significant number with God. Three is perfection as the Godhead is three in one while seven is perfection.

It appears that God gave America 21 years to repent of interfering with His prophetic plan for Israel; however, it has gotten worse under all the presidents and especially Obama. Obama is 100 percent behind the Muslim Brotherhood which has vowed to destroy Israel and take Jerusalem. Both candidates are pro-homosexual and are behind the homosexual agenda. America is under political judgment and the church does not know it!

Managing Anxiety as Hurricane Sandy Approaches

One of the problems with the buildup to weather-related dangers like Hurricane Sandy is that even while we are being told what to do to prepare for the situation, our anxiety is being increased by the reports of the terrible damage it is going to do.

Sometimes our brain, in its frozen state, leads us to a sense of helplessness, hopelessness and/or apathy. “I can’t do anything about it, it’s too big for me, might as well just accept it,” are all reactions to that frozen brain.

As we prepare for the frightening day and night to come, it is worthwhile to take a moment to stop and think about what we might be reacting to. When a newscaster says, “Stay tuned as conditions continue to deteriorate and this potentially life-threatening storm moves closer to landfall,” it is normal to feel a heightening of anxiety and a growing sense of fear. But if we ask ourselves several questions, we are likely to both lower our anxiety and increase our preparedness.

  1. Are you or anyone you love in physical danger?

  2. What can you do to get yourself and loved ones out of danger?

  3. What else do you need to do to protect yourself and your loved ones?

  4. What do you need to do to prepare for the potential damage in both the short and the longterm?

After you have asked yourself these questions and have responded to them – taking action to get out of a danger zone, to protect your home as best as you can, to follow all of the guidelines for preparing for the situation, then ask yourself if this is an old or familiar set of feelings. Are you feeling like you did at some times when you were a helpless child? And are you really as helpless now as you were in whatever that old situation was? What else do you need to do to make sure that you and your family will not be helpless and in danger?
