Berlin: Seven Migrants Charged After Homeless Man Set On Fire

SEVEN migrants have been charged after they allegedly tried to burn a homeless man to death on Christmas Day.

Six of the seven suspects are teenagers age between 15 and 18 turned themselves in to police after CCTV footage emerged of the incident which happened in Berlin on Sunday.

The homeless man, who had been sleeping in an underground train station, managed to get away and escaped unharmed after the attack.

The seventh suspect, a 21-year-old man, was arrested near his home. Police in Germany said the man was the ringleader in the incident.

Six of the seven arrested are migrants from Syria and one is from Lebanon. According to investigators their status is “very different” – some of them have a residence status, others are in ongoing asylum procedures.

Each of the suspects entered the country in the past two years as asylum seekers and worryingly were all known to police.

The 37-year-old homeless man had been trying to keep warm under sheets of paper when the gang tried to set him alight at Schoenleinstrasse underground station in south Berlin.

Cologne Christmas Eve: A Turk Douses Himself And Policemen With Gasoline – Threatens With A Lighter In His Hand

One policewoman was able to kick the man’s lighter out of his hand, so that he could be overwhelmed. Two policewomen were lightly injured. The 45-year-old was committed to the municipal clinic after the incident.

He harassed employees of a car rental

The employees of a car rental company had called the police because they were molested by the man. On the way to the police station, the Turk from Dortmund then claimed that the liquid in the can in his hand was drinking water.

He threatened “I will take you all with me”

During a scuffle in the police station the man was able to open the can and to douse himself and policemen with him with gasoline. He pulled a lighter out of his pocket and yelled: “I don’t care if I die, I will take you all with me!” One of the policewomen quick-wittedly reacted and prevented a worse outcome.

Proceedings have been initiated against the man for severe bodily harm as well as resisting arrest.

Putin Criticizes Western Countries For Abandoning Christian Roots

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on December 26, 2016

If you’ve ever wondered why Putin appeals to so many stable minded people in the West, look no further than this speech where the Russian leader lays into Euro-Atlantic nations for abandoning its Christian roots, placing homosexual relationships on the same level as families, fomenting an environment for paedophilia and creating an atmosphere which will eventually lead to the degradation of civility — leading to the loss of dignity. Pay attention to the grim-faced Islamic clerics inside the hall.

Letter to President-Elect Trump:

Dear Mr. Trump,

Please accept my warmest Christmas and New Year greetings.

Serious global and regional challenges, which our countries have to face in recent years, show that the relations between Russia and the U.S. remain an important factor in ensuring stability and security of the modern world.

I hope that after you assume the position of the President of the United States of America we will be able – by acting in a constructive and pragmatic manner – to take real steps to restore the framework of bilateral cooperation in different areas as well as bring our level of collaboration on the international scene to a qualitatively new level.

Please accept my sincere wishes to you and your family of sound health, happiness, wellbeing, success and all the best.

Sincerely,

V. Putin

The Christmas Story:Joy to the World

christmaslight

The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in the land of deep darkness, on them has a light shone… For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this.” [Isaiah 9: 2, 6–7 ]

Slain Russian ambassador Andrey Karlov Was A Christian Martyr Whose Body Made The Sign Of The Cross And His Hand Made The Sign Of The Trinity

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on December 22, 2016

ambassadorkarlov

Andrey Karlov was martyred and by God’s grace, he laid extending his arms with the sign of the cross and his right hand had his thumb, index and middle finger were brought to a point symbolizing the Trinity in Orthodox fashion.

The Muslim who killed him was cowardly. He shot him in the back, in front of cameras, in front of reporters, visitors, and his wife, Marina Mikhailovna.

Karlov was a solid Christian. He was fluent in Korean and English, first entered the diplomatic service in 1976 aged 22 after graduating from MGIMO – the Moscow State Institute of International Relations. The student of international and economic relations went on to graduate from the Ministry of Internal Affairs diplomatic academy in 1992. He went on to become ambassador to North Korea from June 2001 to December 2006. While there, he made sure an Orthodox Church was established for Russian expats to worship and he himself got married in it.

There are only four state-sanctioned Christian churches in Pyongyang – two Protestant, one Catholic and one Russian Orthodox. The latter was his deed.

Alexander Matsegora, the current Russian ambassador to North Korea, paid an emotional tribute to his predecessor on Tuesday in a Facebook post from Pyongyang.

He wrote: ‘My friend Andrey Karlov has died. In a cowardly way, he was shot in the back. He was killed under the cameras and I saw his face distorted from pain at the moment of the shot.

On TV we heard that he was injured and in hospital. Together with my wife Tanya, we sent a text message to his wife Marina who was also present at the opening of this damned exhibition. We told her to be strong.

And she replied: “Andrey was killed in front of my eyes, he was lying on the floor and this [gun]man did not allow us to come up to him.”’

He added: ‘Farewell, Andrey. I promise that on the day when you go into the ground, the bells of the Orthodox Trinity church in Pyongyang – that you built and where you married Marina – will speak.

Farewell, my best friend, my brother, my dear comrade.’

Glorious champions of Jesus Christ, who have fought the battle of martyrdom and have exchanged this bitter struggle for the peace of the angels in heaven, turn your eyes on me, a poor creature beset on all sides by spiritual dangers. Amid these troubles, I call to mind your great renown. You saints who overcame bodily torment to take heaven by storm, who vanquished the pleasures of the world and who set your eyes on heaven, look with affection on me. Add to the glory of your triumph by your intercession with God, so that I too may gain victory over the corruption of this world and its empty pomp. Blessed warriors, what comfort, what inspiration and joy it is for us to praise you and to follow in your footsteps. Your names and memories are held sacred. You who are true champions of God hasten to help me in my weakness. Give me strength to reach the heavenly kingdom where I may rejoice with you forever.

Christmas Eve in Berlin: At Least 12 Innocent People Were Sacrificed to Lucifer

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on December 21, 2016

Then they say, “The LORD does not see this; the God of Jacob does not take notice of it.” [Psalm 94:7]

FILE PHOTO:  A general view shows the the Christmas market of main shopping street Kurfuerstendamm in Berlin, Germany, November 25, 2015.    REUTERS/Fabrizio Bensch/File Photo

On New Year’s Eve they executed their satanic plan by invading the famous Catholic Cathedral of Cologne with the intention to attack the Christian landmark, to humiliate and weaken, not only the women, but, primarily, the male population. A POGROM probably waged with the collaboration of sodomite controlled security officials and medias. 

And now, on Christmas Eve, it’s the culmination of their year-long Jihad – a perfect time to express their hatred for Jesus Christ and his peaceful followers through murder and Red Terror – in front of the famous landmark of Berlin – The Protestant Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church which is a memorial Church to peace and reconciliation.

Both attacks were carried out with the intention to struck in the heart of the already spiritually-weakened Catholic and Protestant Germany – ironically, both churches played a crucial role in aiding and accommodating mass Muslim migration into Germany.

The Following Anti-Christian Luciferians Have Blood On Their Hands:

  • Angela Merkel

  • EU Eurocrats

  • The Medias

  • The Police & Security Services

  • Courts & Legal Services

  • Educational Institutes & Technological Research Centers

  • Church Leaders

  • Feminists

  • Sodomites & Pedophiles

—  Merkel Has Blood On Her Hands’ Protests Erupt Outside German Chancellor’s Office

How Many More Atrocities Before Our Leaders Stop Lying To Us And Admit That, Thanks To Their Immigration Policies, Being Mowed Down While Doing Your Christmas Shopping Is Simply The New Normal?

terroringermany2016

We will do whatever is necessary. That means long-range weapons, short weapons, machine guns, even if this sounds martial.’

These were the words of German politician Klaus Bouillon, a member of Mrs Merkel’s CDU party, in response to yet another slaughter of innocents, this time at a Christmas market in Berlin.

Of course, Merkel wasn’t around to respond to the horror as it unfolded. She was attending an award ceremony to celebrate the International Day of Migrants even as it seemed one of the 1.1 million she has let into the country tore another hole in her people and in Germany’s cultural life.

And this determination to see only good, to hide the truth of what we are facing in 2017, is all-pervasive.

Initially media reports across our state broadcaster, Left-wing political news sites and CNN – reported only a truck crash, 12 killed.

Some pushed hard behind the early information that the truck was registered to and driven by a Polish man.

Hoping against hope the finger of blame could be pointed at Eastern Europeans, at Christendom, and not again at the Muslim community in our midst.

I have spoken to many Eastern Europeans across Europe who all feel pushed out by the migrant invasion from the Middle East. Who all believe England and Europe love Muslims and hate the Polish and Eastern Europeans. Who feel their hard work and ambition to truly integrate are no longer welcome. And it strikes me their feelings are sadly well-founded.

Ironically, a Polish man just trying to do his job was slaughtered in his truck, the first to die in a killing spree designed to strike the West at a time of Christian celebrations and family festivity.

2016-12-19_173150And as we looked in horror at bodies strewn on the floor, thoughts of the believers were punctuated with tweets from the Caliphate encouraging others to rise up and do more of the same.

So now we will place yet more concrete blocks and cops with guns around our Christmas markets. And hope for the best.

But there can never be enough bollards, never enough policemen wielding sub-machine guns.

At Winter Wonderland in London security bag checks that force hundreds to cram together in shuffling queues have simply created another tasty target for the bombers.

In truth, there is no defence against terror.

It is all-pervasive. Suffocating.

And here we are again. Sitting waiting for the next attack – which is highly likely, if not imminent.

Sitting like ducks waiting to be picked off.

Some find comfort in pretending to be Brave. Accepting fate decides, emboldening themselves with the mantra ‘we will not let them win’.

Merkel encouraged her citizens not to be paralysed by fear, standing there preaching with blood on her hands – a woman surrounded 24/7 by security, who never has to go shopping in a crowded market with the nagging fear that this may be the day her number comes up in the terror lottery.

Others reach for a hashtag and tea lights. Probably not with any hope, faith, or remaining belief in humanity; but simply because they aren’t sure what else to do and they know how to do this. After all, we’ve had plenty of chances to practise.

Some say they prefer to have faith in humanity. But this is blind faith. You are closing your eyes to the horror.

Predictably, other weak liberals have slithered out to say they condemn this in the strongest possible terms. Obama says he will stand shoulder to shoulder with Merkel.

Except his shoulders are so slopey nothing ever sticks. And nothing ever gets done.

You will remember Obama’s election campaign saying ‘Yes we can’. And Merkel’s migrant slogan: ‘We can do this’.

merkelbloodinherhand

Well, my liberal friends — no you can’t. No we can’t.

And what’s more, why should we want to?

I don’t want to live in a world where we have to be endlessly tolerant of those who display no tolerance at all.
Where we have to accept and understand, whilst migrants refuse to learn our language and our ways. Where we lecture employers about equality but bend over backwards for a religion which keeps women segregated and hidden in the kitchen.

Yesterday we got a glimpse. A glimpse of life in 2017. And 2018 come to that. And 2019. And 2020. And it was violent and shameless.

A never-ending procession of atrocities committed by people for whom grievance against the West is a way of life.

And a gradual erosion not just of our freedoms but of life’s little pleasures.

In Ankara the Russian Ambassador was gunned down by a Turkish police officer, killing in revenge for Aleppo, because Allah Akbar – his God is the greatest.

Another heinous act in a country the EU would wish to welcome with open arms. Why? So that it can bring more terror to Europe?

And all the while we are supposed to sit back and watch it happen. To be brainwashed by a media determined to play down the war bubbling up under our feet. To watch from the sidelines as ambassadors are shot, on film, in cold blood. To have the truth neutered, dumbed down, sanitised for multicultural Brits and Liberal Americans.

No wonder an elderly serviceman waiting outside the Court of Justice to see if Marine A would be free told me recently he will be glad to be out of it soon.

Free from watching the country he fought for, the country he loves, go down the pan to the point where our national team is fined for showing respect to our war dead and soldiers who risked their lives to defend us go to jail.

These days the only cultures it’s outlawed to offend are those that are most opposed to ours.

We tiptoe around their sensitivities instead of standing up for our culture, the one they have chosen to join.

Last week thousands of Muslims blocked the streets of London chanting Allahu Akhbar, demanding an Islamic caliphate.

Their leaders congratulated the crowd on amassing so quickly and in such large numbers saying: ‘This gathering today – in a matter of a few hours, hundreds of brothers and sisters coming together – is a sign of positivity and revival, and a sign of victory for Allah.’

It was barely reported.

The vanguard of an army that can hide in plain sight amongst us because our leaders simply do not want to see it.

Dog-Phobic Angela Merkel Let The Dog-Hating Snake In

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on December 21, 2016

…and it has been bitten by the goddamn snake – dogs can truly sense and sometimes even see evil spirits

The Snake

On her way to work one morning

Down the path along side the lake

A tender hearted woman saw a poor half frozen snake

His pretty colored skin had been all frosted with the dew

“Poor thing,” she cried, “I’ll take you in and I’ll take care of you”

“Take me in tender woman

Take me in, for heaven’s sake

Take me in, tender woman,” sighed the snake

She wrapped him all cozy in a comforter of silk

And laid him by her fireside with some honey and some milk

She hurried home from work that night and soon as she arrived

She found that pretty snake she’d taken to had bee revived

“Take me in, tender woman

Take me in, for heaven’s sake

Take me in, tender woman,” sighed the snake

She clutched him to her bosom, “You’re so beautiful,” she cried

“But if I hadn’t brought you in by now you might have died”

She stroked his pretty skin again and kissed and held him tight

Instead of saying thanks, the snake gave her a vicious bite

“Take me in, tender woman

Take me in, for heaven’s sake

Take me in, tender woman,” sighed the snake

“I saved you,” cried the woman

“And you’ve bitten me, but why?

You know your bite is poisonous and now I’m going to die”

“Oh shut up, silly woman,” said the reptile with a grin

“You knew damn well I was a snake before you took me in

“Take me in, tender woman

Take me in, for heaven’s sake

Take me in, tender woman,” sighed the snake

[Version II]

On her way to work one morning

Down the path along side the lake

A tender hearted woman saw a poor half frozen snake

His pretty colored skin had been all frosted with the dew

“Oh well,” she cried, “I’ll take you in and I’ll take care of you”

“Take me in tender woman

Take me in, for heaven’s sake

Take me in, tender woman,” sighed the snake

Now she wrapped him all cozy in a coverture of silk

And then laid him by the fireside with some honey and some milk

Now she hurried home from work that night as soon as she arrived

She found that pretty snake she’d taken to had been revived

“Take me in, oh tender woman

Take me in, for heaven’s sake

Take me in, tender woman,” sighed the snake

She clutched him to her bosom, “You’re so beautiful,” she cried

“But if I hadn’t brought you in, by now you might have died”

Now she stroked his pretty skin again and then kissed and held him tight

But instead of saying thanks, the snake gave her a vicious bite!

“Take me in, oh tender woman

Take me in for heaven’s sake

Take me in, tender woman,” sighed the snake

“Now I saved you,” cried the woman

And you’ve bit me, even why?

And you know your bite is poisonous and now I’m going to die”

“Ah shut up, silly woman,” said that reptile with a grin

“Now you knew darn well I was a snake before you brought me in

Please, take me in, oh tender woman

Take me in, for heaven’s sake

Take me in, tender woman,” sighed the snake, sighed the snake

“Take me in tender woman

“Come on in you pretty snake…

Come on in, yeah, come on in you pretty snake…

Man Who Was Clinically Dead For An Hour ‘I Saw Heaven, I Met Dead Friends’

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on December 18, 2016

heaven-756096

A MAN who was clinically dead for more than an hour has described how he went to Heaven and was reunited with his dead friends before returning to Earth.

Dr Gary Wood was 18-years-old when he and his sister were involved in a serious car crash.

Dr Wood and his then 16-year-old sister Sue were travelling home when he crashed the car into an illegally parked vehicle.

While the younger Wood left the crash relatively unscathed, Gary suffered potentially life-ending injuries, including a crushed larynx and vocal chords, as well has having his nose ripped off and several broken bones.

When paramedics arrived, Dr Wood was pronounced dead at the scene.

However, the “rebellious teen” as he describes himself on his website, still remembers everything so vividly some 50 years later.

Speaking to presenter Sid Roth on his show ‘It’s Supernatural!’, Dr Wood said that after the crash he experienced a lot of pain, “then I was just relieved of all pain” as he died.

Dr Wood then claims that he ascended to Heaven.

He said: “Dying is just like taking your clothes off and just laying them aside.

I stepped out of this body, this Earth suit, and then was lifted up through the top of my car and my whole life just passed before my eyes in just an instant.

Then I was caught in a swirling massive funnel shape cloud that grew brighter.

He described dying and ascending to Heaven as “ecstasy, peaceful, calm, tranquility.

Then this cloud opened up and I saw this giant golden satellite, suspended in space that the Bible calls Heaven.”

Dr Wood, who has authored several books on his supposed experience, said that he was met by an angel that was at least “70 feet tall” and stood in front of gates that were “500 miles wide”.

He said of the angel: “He had a sword, he had beautiful gold, spun hair. And there was an angel inside of the city that was holding some books. 

There was some exchange between the two angels and then I was allowed into the city.”

He then claims to have been given a tour of Heaven by his friend.

Dr Wood said he was met by “my best friend in high school who had been killed in a lawnmower accident.

Then my friend began to take me on a tour of a place called ‘Heaven’

About 500 yards from the throne room of God, my friend took me and I was captivated by the sign on the outside that said ‘Unclaimed Blessings’.

When I opened the door, to my astonishment I saw legs hanging there from the wall, real legs.

Every part of one’s anatomy was there in that room and people asked my ‘why do you need a place like that?’ Because God has a spare part when God has a miracle.”

Dr Wood, who has now become a minster, also told Mr Roth how he had met Jesus: “I was sent back to tell people that Heaven is real, there is a song to sing, there is a mission or journey to take, there is a book to write. You’re unique in purpose on this Earth.

Jesus told me to give a specific message – there will be a spirit of restoration that would prevail throughout the land, there would be a teaching and emphasis on prayer.”

Back on earth, his younger sister was screaming out his name, hoping that Gary could be revived – a scream which he says he and his friend heard in Heaven.

He said: “When my friend was taking me on this tour, as Sue began to cry out, my friend said to me ‘you’ve got to go back, she’s using that name’.

And so I just shot right back down into my body. They noticed life signs, they rushed me to the hospital to stabilise me.”

Europe: Police Dogs Used Against Christians Protesting Injustice – But Not Against The Islamic Grinches Who’re Trying to Ruin Christmas

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on December 16, 2016

bearbaiting

When I saw this astounishing report that 1000 Muslims blocked London streets chanting Allahu Akbar to demand Islamic caliphate – I was in a comparative mode thinking of a shockingly radical measure taken by police in Hamburg last year against Eritrean (Ethiopian) Christians who blocked a street in a protest – and the green Muslim Grinches that are out there trying to ruin the Christmas atmosphere in London.

Back then, Eritrean refugees were forced by the police to end their protest concerning discriminatory actions taken in an asylum center where they domiciled. This news got no international attention. But, the local media, as usual, used and twisted the story to manipulate public opinion against African Christians, as follows:

Eritrean Refugees Attack Police Dogs

53 Eritrean “Refugees” punched and kicked police dogs in Hamburg, Germany because they were unhappy about the length of their stay in an initial reception center after they decided to block the Drateln Street in Wilhelmsburg. They protested over what they claimed was preferential treatment being given to Syrians in their center. Even the comments section of this story was more sympathetic towards the police dog than the Eritrean Christians. Amazing!

I was told then by one of the Eritreans from Hamburg, that, in the first reception center, refugees are normally kept for a couple of weeks, but – while the Syrians were transferred out of the camps and given apartments and houses – the Eritreans were kept there for up to six and more months.

Compared to Arab, Albanian or Afghani refugees, most Eritreans are quite, reserved and respectful of local laws and authorities, but this time their displeasure was understandable, as they were first provoked by the ‘experiment-addicted’, mostly anti-Christian authorities.

Anyways, to resolve the situation, the police came with German shepherd dogs and attacked the Eritreans. According to the police narration, a 35-year-old Eritrean hit one of the police dogs. The police dog jumped on the Eritrean, so he fell on the footpath. While lying on the ground he tried to fight off the dog, but the dog grabbed him by the wrist. The man was taken into custody. He suffered a slight injury to his wrist, but refused a medical examination.

You can find how hateful, indifferent and judgmental everyone was by reading the commentaries and the articles on this and other cases.

Can you imagine police dogs sent to grab those criminal Arab Muslims who molested and raped German women in Cologne? In fact, most of those molesters were set free by the police. Mind you, a year on and after, there were more than 1,000 criminal charges, but there have been few arrests and convictions.

Can you imagine police dogs – dogs are hated by Muslims – brought by the London police to scare off or grab those 1000 Muslim supremacists who blocked the streets of London demanding Islamic Caliphate during this Christmas season? 

Can you imagine the outrage if something of a sort happened?

 

MERRY CHRISTMAS

The Deadliest Church Attack in Egypt’s Modern History

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on December 16, 2016

The Spectacular Manifestation Of A Constantly Simmering Hate.

A nun reacts as Egyptian security forces (unseen) inspect the scene of a bomb explosion at the Saint Peter and Saint Paul Coptic Orthodox Church on December 11, 2016, in Cairo's Abbasiya neighbourhood. The blast killed at least 25 worshippers during Sunday mass inside the Cairo church near the seat of the Coptic pope who heads Egypt's Christian minority, state media said. / AFP PHOTO / KHALED DESOUKI

I Wish I Had Died With Them Instead Of Seeing These Scenes.

The worst attack on Egypt’s Christian minority in recent years occurred yesterday, Sunday, December 11, 2016. St. Peter Cathedral in Cairo, packed with worshippers celebrating Sunday mass, was bombed; at least 27 churchgoers, mostly women and children, were killed and 65 severely wounded. As many of the wounded are in critical condition, the death toll is expected to rise.

As usual, witnesses say that state security was not present and that police took an inordinate amount of time to arrive after the explosion. Preliminary investigations point to a bomb placed inside an unattended lady’s purse on one of the rear pews of the women’s section, though more recent revelations indicate there was a male suicide bomber involved.

Mutilated bodies were strewn along the floor and pews of the cathedral. “I found bodies, many of them women, lying on the pews. It was a horrible scene,” said one witness.

I saw a headless woman being carried away,” said Mariam Shenouda: “Everyone was in a state of shock. We were scooping up people’s flesh off the floor. There were children. What have they done to deserve this? I wish I had died with them instead of seeing these scenes.”

In death toll and severity, this attack surpasses what was formerly considered the deadliest church attack in Egypt: a New Year’s Day bombing of a church in Alexandria that killed 23 people in 2011.

Yesterday’s attack was also symbolically more significant: St. Peter’s Church is attached to and used by St. Mark’s Cathedral, the seat of Egypt’s Coptic Orthodox Christian church and home to its leader, Pope Tawadros II.

It is to President Sisi’s shame that the deadliest church attack in Egypt occurred on his watch. Yet it is also unsurprising considering how little has really changed for Egypt’s Christians since Sisi ousted Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood in 2013. For starters, although Western and English language media do not report them, there have been several minor and unsuccessful terror attacks on churches in Egypt in recent weeks and months. Last November, a man hurled an improvised bomb at the entrance of St. George Church in Samalout, Egypt. Had the bomb detonated—it was dismantled in time—casualties would have been high, as the church building was packed with thousands of worshippers congregating for a special holiday service.

Instances of angry Muslim mobs attacking and killing Christians on the mere rumor that they are trying to build a church, or are meeting to pray in a house church, are also on the rise. Last summer in Minya—the same place where a 70-year-old Christian woman was stripped naked, savagely beaten, spat on, and paraded in the streets to jeers, whistles, and yells of “Allahu Akbar”—rioting Muslims burned down 80 Christian homes on the rumor that Christians were trying to build a church.[1] “No one did anything and the police took no pre-emptive or security measures in anticipation of the attacks,” said Bishop Makarios—who is also on record saying that Christians are attacked “every two or three days” in Minya and that the authorities are always turning a blind eye, if not actually aiding or enabling the attacks.

Even the much touted new law that purports to allow Christians to build churches has been criticized by Coptic clergy, activists, local human rights groups, and Christian members of parliament. They say it still continues to discriminate against Christians, including with security provisions that subject decisions on whether or not a church can be built to the whims of violent mobs.

A reflection of this recently took place in the village of Naghameesh, where the building Christians were using to hold church services was torched by angry Muslims. Afterwards, a “reconciliation meeting” was held by top officials. As usual, the “brotherhood of all Egyptians”—Christians and Muslims—was the theme, but when it came to the question of giving their fellow Christian brothers the same right to worship that Egypt’s Muslims enjoy, the majority of Muslim leaders and family members refused to permit the local Christians a place to pray in. Authorities acquiesced and did nothing to support the Christians.

We don’t understand what is so dangerous about the Copts praying and exercising their legal rights in this matter,” one local Christian said.

Adding insult to injury, the Egyptian government just boasted last week that it is opening 10 new mosques every week; that there are 3,200 closed mosques that need renovating, and that the government is currently working on 1,300 of them; that it will take about 60 million Egyptian pounds to renovate them, but that the government has allotted ten times that much, although a total of three billion is needed; and that the Egyptian government is dedicated to spending that much—for “whoever abuses public funds [which should be used for Islamic worship], enters a war with Allah, ” to quote Dr. Muhammad Mukhtar Gom‘a, Minister of Awqaf, or endowments.

But when the nation’s more than 10 million Christian minority seeks to build a church—and pay for it from their own pockets—all is woe in Egypt.

That nothing has changed for Egypt’s Christians was even asserted by Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb, the nation’s highest Muslim authority and Grand Imam of Al Azhar University, the Muslim world’s most prestigious madrassa in Cairo. During a recent televised interview, al-Tayeb defended Al Azhar’s reliance on books written in the Medieval era, which reformers are eager to see eliminated from the school’s curriculum because they support the most radical expressions of Islam—including killing apostates, burning infidels, and persecuting Christians.

Tayeb further mocked the notion of “changing religious discourse”—a phrase made popular by Sisi, who in 2015 called on Al Azhar and its top instructors to reform their teachings. Although Tayeb appeared sitting in the front row, he is now dismissing Sisi’s call for reform as “quixotic”: “Al Azhar doesn’t change religious discourse—Al Azhar proclaims the true religious discourse, which we learned from our elders,” says Egypt’s highest Muslim authority.

And the law that the elders of Islam, the ulema, bequeathed to Egypt’s Muslims holds that all conquered indigenous inhabitants—in this case, infidel Christians—must not be permitted to build churches, must not complain or ask for equal rights, and must be grateful merely for being allowed to live.

In short, not only has nothing changed for Egypt’s Christians, but the deadliest church attack in modern history has now just taken place, not under Mubarak or Morsi, but under Sisi’s government. What, if anything, does he propose to do about it?

[Among the rioters were women and children shouting “Allahu Akbar!” and “We’ll burn the church, we’ll burn the church.” Even though Muslims were attacking Christians, Egyptian television portrayed it as a “sectarian clash.” After arriving, the police stood back and allowed the mob to continue rioting, plundering and setting more Christian homes and vehicles on fire. The Muslims then performed their afternoon prayers outside those Christians’ homes they had not destroyed — with loudspeakers pointed at their doors.

Could Sudan be the Cornerstone of the Caliphate in Africa?

The Islamic Republic of the Sudan Objective is to Establish a Caliphate

Composed of Sudan, Chad, Central African Republic Niger and Mali

Just after the election of President-elect Donald Trump, Dr. Walid Phares, his principal advisor on Middle East Affairs, spoke before a group of American Sudanese Nuba émigrés in Washington, DC. Eric Reeves of Amnesty International wrote in a November 15, 2016 column in the Sudan Times about Phares’ statement. He speculated on what the Trump Administration might accomplish in the first 100 days to address the genocide by the corrupt Bashir regime:

He said America under the leadership of Donald Trump would not tolerate what he called abuses practiced by the Khartoum government against its own citizens.

Furthermore, he added that there is no reason why the United States and its European allies should lift the economic sanctions on Bashir’s regime established in 1997 in light of the continued violations in Sudan. Moreover, Mr. Walid Phares indicated that they will work with the international community during the first hundred days to end the crisis in Darfur, Blue Nile and South Kordofan.

Mahmoud A. Suleiman wrote about the duplicity of President Bashir’s outreach to President – elect Trump, in another Sudan Times op-ed, “Bashir’s call for mutual cooperation with U.S. Trump:”

It is pathetic that Omar al-Bashir offered congratulations to the U.S. President-elect Donald Trump and looked forward to cooperate with the new US president. The NCP Génocidaire Omar Hassan Ahmed al- Bashir forgot or ignored the mere promise of achieving democracy for the people of Sudan. This style of political discourse is not surprising in the era of the unratified [27-year] ruling regime of the National Congress Party (NCP). The regime has decided during the so-called Wathba dialogue or National Dialogue Conference in Khartoum on October 10, 2016 that Omar al-Bashir will continue as President of Sudan until the year 2020 without being democratically elected by the disenfranchised. There is no comparison between this and what happens in the United States of America. The comparison between what is followed democratically in the United States of America and the dictatorship in Sudan is neither fair nor appropriate.

President–elect Donald Trump confirmed during most of his campaign that he would declare the war on radical Islam. The peaceful way employed by President Barack Obama in his diplomatic relations with the radical Islamist duo Khartoum and Tehran and called the “Obama’s approach”, was exploited by the Sudanese regime and Iranian governments seems to have approached the end. Since the Islamic countries found in the Obama regime simply a break from the George W. Bush Presidency’s ultimatum that puts clear: “either with us or against us”. Thus, that honeymoon period might be approaching an end.

President Bashir wrote President-elect Trump as the “duly elected” President of the Islamist Republic Sudan. His faux election in 2011 was conducted in accordance with Sharia in that only Muslims in the Khartoum capital region could vote for him as President of the NCP regime. African tribes elsewhere in the Sudan in Darfur, South Kordofan and the Blue Nile regions are not considered Muslims and therefore ineligible to vote. The NCP Khartoum central government propaganda is that these regions do not recognize the fraudulent election of President Bashir, which it contends is recognized as the ‘legitimate’ government, internationally.

The problem that the incoming Trump Administration faces is that President Bashir is mobilizing an enormous Jihad army poised to perpetrate the final destruction of resistance forces in both the Darfur and South Kordofan regions of the Sudan. The fighting season in the Sudan has begun. Bashir and his National Congress Party (NCP)-led government have already unleashed attacks on November 24, 2016 in the Nuba region of South Kordofan, a prelude to conquering the area. At the same time, he is facing civil unrest in the capital of Khartoum, where troops are preparing mass graves for the expected slaughter of protesters over the failure of his domestic economic policies. Opposition in Khartoum has called for a three-day strike, reported on November 27, 2016, protesting fuel shortages. The Bashir security forces have begun using tear gas against protesters with worse consequences to come.

His agenda is to cleanse these regions of African tribes for resettlement by the families of the Orwellian-named “Peace Force,” formerly the Janjaweed, composed of foreign mercenaries, and then to exploit precious metals resources in the Nuba Mountains and Jebel Amir gold mines in North Darfur. The Khartoum regime ‘ethnic cleansing’ of Darfurians in the Jebel Marra region was described in detail by Gen. Abdallah in our November 2016 New English Review interview with him, “Only Regime Change Can Stop Sudan’s Genocide.” What follows is a situation report (SITREP) on what is happening in the Sudan. The corrupt Islamist regime of indicted war criminal President Omar Bashir is seeking, with Arab countries financing and support, to create a massive Jihad army. He will soon launch a campaign to create by armed force a Caliphate across sub Sahara Africa ruled under Islamic Sharia law.

Mobilization of 150,000 Men to Complete Destruction of Darfur, Nuba and Establish Caliphate

The Sudan regime uses tribes and terrorist groups to fight proxy wars for the benefit of the National Congress Party (NCP) regime in Khartoum and Arab Coalition partners. In January 2016 the Khartoum government mobilized 9,000 men composed of Janjaweed militias, ISIS operatives, Lord Resistance Army fighters from Uganda, Boko Haram from Nigeria, and al Shabaab of Somalia, Mali Jihadists, and Sudanese armed forces. The combined force attacked Jebel Marra using chemical weapons. Since then the recruitment has not stopped as the regime continues to recruit people from Arab tribes and bring in foreign terrorists to fight beside the Sudanese government army. Over the 15-year-old Darfur crisis, the NCP regime mobilized Arab militia forces of 10,000 to 30,000 each year. However, the mobilization this time is different in terms of numbers, parties involved, and overall objectives.

The regime has changed the name of the Rapid Support Forces into Kuat al Salam (Peace Forces). The new recruitment is being done under that name. The reason for the name change was to eradicate the references to the Janjaweed and Rapid Support Forces that most people in Darfur and the international community knew were committing genocide, war crimes, and human right abuses. The name change amounts to Orwellian Islamic taqiyyah – religiously condoned dissimilitude – lying for Allah – to deceive people in order to join up for training, especially among non-Arab youths.

The regime’s strategy is to mobilize 150,000 men for the Darfur attack to eradicate the people of Darfur and overthrow the adjacent government of Chad. They maintain that all Zagawa are the same and even if they killed all Zagawa of Darfur (Sudan) and left those of Chad they have done nothing. The objective behind this massive mobilization of a veritable Jihad army of 150,000 men is to destroy the Zagawa and overthrow the governments of Chad, Niger, Mali, South Sudan, and the Central African Republic establishing a Caliphate in Sub Sahara Africa. There are an estimated 400,000 Zagawa African Muslim pastoralist people spread over Darfur in Western Sudan (145,000), Chad (271,000) and Libya (10,000). The name Zagawa is derived from the type of sheep raised by the ethnic group. They usually refer to themselves as the Beri people. The Tuareg Jihadist Ansar Dine group operating in the Azawad region in Northern Mali is tasked to take over Mali. Some factions of the SELEKA rebels commanded by people of Arab origin will be tasked to liberate the Central Africa Republic. The plan is that South Sudan will be liberated by Riek Machar and supported by the South Sudan Islamic Liberation Movement led by Ali Tamim Fartak. Fartak was a member of Muslim Brotherhood Organization and National Congress Party prior to South Sudan’s independence. There are also 8,000 militiamen currently grouped in D’ean, the Eastern Darfur region, prepared to attack south Sudan.

If that objective were attainable, it would change the map of Africa. The area from South Sudan to Mali would constitute an African Caliphate. The Khartoum regime is preparing to field this massive Jihad Army to fight and occupy this swath of sub-Sahara Africa to be administered under Islamic Sharia law.

Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Qatar would provide funding and political guidance, while Sudan would organize the Jihad mercenary army, conduct training, and provide operational control. Training camps are located in the Azawad region of Mali, Libya and Darfur.

According to our sources Sudan has already mobilized 30,000 men in Darfur and recruited thousands of others in both Sudan and contiguous Chad. Khartoum has airdropped supplies of weapons such as AK-47s and RGPs for this basic force. They have already provided 2,500 Toyota Hi-lux pickup trucks that will be used for military operations. 500 additional Toyota vehicles are on the way.

In order for the Khartoum regime to achieve its recruitment goal, they openly recruited men for the “Peace Forces in Darfur.” They have also secretly recruited personnel in Chad and sent them to Sudan for training. They are exploiting the current financial crisis of the government of Chad. For months now people have not received their salaries and there is anger. People are protesting against the government. The Khartoum regime pays 30,000 SDG per person and a similar amount or more to middlemen.

In Chad the payment to recruits for the so-called Peace Force varies. It is based on the different status of an individual as between cadre and an ordinary recruit. For some cadres they pay a million CFA about $2,000 USD while others receive 500,000 CFA, which amounts to about $1,000 US dollars. Cadres that cannot travel directly to Sudan are sent to West African States of Niger, Senegal etc. and from there fly to Sudan. The operation is well coordinated with Sudan, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Qatar governments, and is supported by political parties and private organizations in Chad.

There is one political party named Militants’ Party for Unity and Development (Parti des Militants pour l’Unité et Development). Khalil Ali Osman is the leader of the political party and he is the overall coordinator of these different groups of militias and terrorists operating in Darfur, the Azawad Region of Mali, and Libya. There is another member of the same political party in charge of foreign relations. He coordinates activities with Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Kuwait. There is also an organization called Defense and Development of Arabic Language in Chad working together with the above mentioned political party. They organize conferences and invite Arab governments and individuals from Gulf States to raise funds.

Our sources also said that they opened centers in different places in Darfur to teach French Language to their militia forces so that when they occupied Chad, Niger, and Mali they will not be having language problems.

About 5,000 Chadian rebels are currently completing their training with Libyan Islamic groups, possibly Fajir Libya, which the Sudan government supports. They are waiting for deployment. They moved this Chadian rebel force from Sudan to Libya between late July and August of 2016.

As of this report militias changed the name of Kutum, North Darfur to “Waha” and declared it a liberated area of Janjaweed, now renamed “Peace Force.”

As an example of the brutality of this “Peace Force,” there is a man called Dr. Abdallah who lives in Geinena, Western Darfur in charge of the Hakamas (women who sing war songs to encourage fighters). Reportedly, he has told the Janjaweed militias that no Hakamas will sing for anyone who did not kill one hundred people. Each militiaman must bring body parts for hundred people to allow Hakamas to sing for him.

Unleashing the attack on the Nuba Region

The Sudanese Government and militias have massed forces for an invasion of the Nuba Mountains in South Kordofan. There are upwards of 8 training camps in the area of Kordofan that have trained 15,000 international jihadists, about 2,000 trainees per camp. These mujahedeen are part of the invading force in Nuba. The majority of these mujahedeen are from Syria. Additional mujahedeen recruits are flooding into Sudan from the Middle East to join the proposed Caliphate to fight against the West. They believe they must cleanse the land of Abeed (black, indigenous, African) people. Abeed in Arabic means, “slave.” When these jihadists have graduated training they will join the battle in the Nuba Mountains in order to accomplish ethnic cleansing of the land. After training these mujahedeen they will join the heavily armed Sudanese government force in Kordofan in December 2016 and January 2017 when the full Kordofan cleansing operation is scheduled to begin.

Reports from Kadugli, Sudan, capitol city of Nuba Mountains indicate that the heavily armed militia now outnumbers the remaining citizens, approximately 500 people. Kadugli once hosted 300,000 inhabitants prior to the 2012 massacre by Sudan Armed Forces bombing raids. The current estimated population is approximately 94,000. The militia is there to build a factory to produce enough cyanide for Khartoum’s gold production needs from deposits in the Nuba Mountains. The current push that began on November 24, 2016 is directed at ethnically cleansing the Umm Derien area. (See area 3 on the Nuba battle map above.) The remaining people have protested and been threatened by the militia with death. The Khartoum regime will likely order the militia push to ‘neutralize’ the protesters.

The Governor of the Nuba area requested help from the outside world, but only regime change will stop this latest proposed massacre in 2016.

The Saudi Sudan Connections – Money for Switching Sides

SaudiInT (2)

One of the strategic aspects of this latest wave of ethnic cleansing in both the Darfur in Western Sudan and in the Nuba Mountains in South Kordofan is motivated by the exploitation of gold deposits. Further, we noted the backing of Saudi Arabia and Emeriti members of the Gulf Cooperation Council behind possible creation of a Caliphate in the Sahel region of Sub-Sahara Africa. 

There are several developments arising from the sudden switch of Sudan, as the only Sunni country in the horn of Africa, to have been a long-standing ally of the Shi’ite Islamic Republic of Iran. Iran had assisted the Sudan in creating a munitions industry. Sudan had facilitated transshipment of Iranian weapons to other Sunni proxies, Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad in Gaza. That prompted periodic Israeli air attacks on convoys transiting from Port Sudan across Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, as well as interdiction of Iranian arms cargoes in the Red Sea. Moreover, Sudan had been a major state supporter of terrorism providing training camps for Osama bin Laden. It had also previously supplied weapons for the Houthi insurgency in Yemen across the Bab al Mandab straits in the Red Sea.

Sudan faced onerous fiscal isolation caused by nearly 20 years of international sanctions, the loss of substantial oil revenues with the founding of the independent Republic of South Sudan and civil war there. Khartoum found itself in dire financial straits facing internal unrest and protests over its faltering economic policies. Military and security expenditures claimed fully 70 percent of Sudan’s dwindling budget. What to do?

The answer was to switch sides and opt for major Saudi financial support and investment in precious metals development both offshore in the Red Sea and on-shore in both North Darfur and the Nuba Mountains. That switch took place in 2014 when Sudan closed Iranian and Shia cultural centers in Khartoum. In 2015 the Bashir regime sent 6,000 troops with supporting aircraft to provide boots on the ground in the Saudi and GCC air campaign against the Iranian backed Houthi rebels. The Iran-supported Shi’ite Houthi had ousted the Yemeni government of Saudi ally, President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi. The Saudi Kingdom provided a $5 billion military aid package to Khartoum. Riyadh invested in the Atlantis II Red Sea bed mineral extraction project. It may produce a $20 billion profit for the Saudi Kingdom under its so-called modernization program aimed at reducing reliance of oil revenues. Riyadh further bolstered its financial support to both Djibouti and Somalia in the Horn of Africa.

Eleonora Ardemagni an international relations analyst of the Middle East, focused on Yemen and the GCC region, noted these developments in an April 2016 article published by The Arab Gulf States Institute in Washington, DC, “The Yemeni Factor in the Saudi Arabia Sudan Realignment.” She summarized the financial benefits to Khartoum from switching sides:

The Saudi-Sudanese realignment is based on a “money for proxies” informal pact: external financial-military aid from Riyadh to Khartoum in exchange for direct military commitment of Sudanese troops for overseas operations. Such military interdependence has also boosted economic ties and joint projects between Sudan and Saudi Arabia, as well as other Arab Gulf states. This includes Sudanese gold production and the exploitation of offshore mineral resources in the Red Sea, where Saudi Arabia and Sudan share a common area, the Atlantis II joint venture. In 2015, the Sudanese central bank received $1 billion from Saudi Arabia and, previously, $1.22 billion dollars from Qatar. Riyadh and Abu Dhabi hosted the Saudi-Sudanese and the UAE-Sudanese Investment Forum, respectively. On November 2015, Saudi Arabia committed $1.7 billion for the building of three dams in northern Sudan, to be constructed within five years, plus $500 million for water and electricity projects and the cultivation of agricultural land in eastern Sudan.

With the influx of billions in Saudi and GCC funds, Khartoum now has the financial underwriting for its “final solution” for Darfur and South Kordofan giving it a free hand to exploit their gold deposits. Perhaps the long sought gold production in these regions might back its faltering currency. Moreover, the profits from joint ventures with the Saudis would aid in launching its mercenary Jihad Army to create a Caliphate across most of the Sahel region of sub–Sahara Africa. It also may have the Saudi Kingdom’s support to intercede on its behalf to end the 20-year international sanctions regime. The Saudi and GCC backing may also effectively stifle the International Criminal Courts outstanding warrant for the arrest of Sudan’s President for war crimes in Darfur. That has already happened with South Africa’s refusal to arrest Bashir during a state visit and a recent announcement by the OAU that it is capable of trying dictatorial leaders of member countries for “crimes against humanity,” as in the case of the former Chadian despotic leader.

Conclusion

President Bashir and his NCP government members were hoping that Hillary Clinton was going to win the US Presidential election. If Clinton won, they believed that she would continue Obama’s policies that embraced the Khartoum regime. However, President-elect Donald Trump surprised them. So they are preparing to quickly finish their operation between now and first 100 days of the Trump Administration following his inauguration on January 21, 2017.

Sudan, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Qatar are sources of financing terrorists that cause instability in Africa and the world. They are also the countries that currently cause instability in South Sudan, Mali, Niger, Chad, Nigeria, Cameroon, Libya, as well as the Sudan regions of Darfur, Kordofan, and Blue Nile. They pose a threat to international peace and security. Sudan’s regime is playing the role of late Libyan Leader Gaddafi who destabilized Chad for more than thirty years in an attempt to expand Arab territory in Sub-Sahara Africa. We urge the international community, especially United States and countries that are fighting the global war on terrorism, to take seriously this SITREP and deal with the Islamist Sudan of indicted war criminal President Omar Bashir.
