Nigeria: Muslims Wipe Out 15 Villages in Mass Slaughter of Christians, Government Does Nothing

Posted by addisethiopia on February 22, 2018

Despite several calls to the governor and his deputy, and other security apparatus, the government remained silent as the atrocities continued. The Fulani were able to carry out their deadly attack. They stayed for hours in the vicinity, moving at will, unchallenged.”

Why? Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari clearly has no sympathy for the victims. He shares the world view of the jihadi attackers.

Armed Gangs Wipe Out 15 Villages in Mass Christian Slaughter In Nigeria. Why is the world silent? Why are Nigerian ‘Christians’ in the South doing nothing to defend their brothers and sisters in the North? Why are they electing Muslim Presidents?

ARMED men stormed through 15 villages to massacre Christians and destroy their churches in a violent crackdown against the religion in Nigeria.

Dozens of people have been killed after the gangs ransacked towns and villages to clear them of all aspects of the Christian faith.

Houses belonging to believers have also been razed with authorities doing little to help, an anti-persecution watchdog claimed.

Open Doors spoke to one Christian who described the broad daylight attack carried out by a group of Fulani – one of Africa’s largest ethnicities.

A spokeswoman said: “One attack took place in broad daylight, as people were about to go to church.

The assailants chased and killed the villagers and burned down nine churches and many more houses.”

Christian persecution is a major problem in Nigeria which has been exacerbated by the spread of radical Islamic teaching and practice.

The shocked witness said Christians needed more protection from the country’s leader or lives would continue to be lost.

They said: “Despite several calls to the governor and his deputy, and other security apparatus, the government remained silent as the atrocities continued.

The Fulani were able to carry out their deadly attack. They stayed for hours in the vicinity, moving at will, unchallenged.”…

In the central state of Nasarawa, 25 villages have been destroyed since January 15….

A spokesman for the Concerned Indigenous Tiv People group said: “Since the outbreak of the crisis on January 15 this year, due to the Fulani /herdsmen attack on our villages, leading to the displacement of Tiv in their ancestral homes, the Nasarawa State Governor, Tanko Almakura, has done very little to bring the situation under control.”

Other attacks have taken place in Benue State and across the Middle Belt region of the country. The Army has now been deployed to certain areas in order to stop the violence.

A spokeswoman for Open Doors said: “Believers experience discrimination and exclusion, and violence from militant Islamic groups, resulting in the loss of property, land, livelihood, physical injury or death; this is spreading southwards.

Corruption has enfeebled the state and made it ill-equipped to protect Christians. Rivalry between ethnic groups and raids by Fulani herdsmen compound the persecution. Converts face rejection from their Muslim families and pressure to recant.”

Selected Comments:

How many? 150, 1500, or 150,000+? Is this not genocide? (Answer: Yes, it’s genocide of non-Muslims by Muslims) Is this not Rwanda all over again? (I guess the left is waiting to see the numbers before making any conclusions, after all, those Muslims are scary, plus they’re allies in the fight against the global menace of white bubbas who fly Confederate flags; saw one in Thailand the other day in fact. It was in an old James Bond movie, but still).

And where is the UN? (Answer: Islamically infected, and worthless). Where are all those proud black people emerging from “Black Panther” only to see headlines (albeit in the back pages of the MSM) of authentic Africans (ones who are free and have integrated Christianity with their culture) being slaughtered by slaves of Muhammad, i.e. mindless recruits to a violent foreign invasion of Arab culture intending to replace African culture, i.e., replace “Wakanda”.

The left says “Never again,” but they are too P.C. to even read Jihad Watch to become really woke, much less act in self-defense.

Is this not Rwanda all over again?

No — actually, it’s Armenia all over again.

Between 1,000 and 3,000 Christians have been killed in Nigeria every year for the last 20 years. That’s some 20 – 50 Christians murdered by MUSLIMS every single week.

Yep, that’s a better example, because the Armenian Genocide could accurately be called the “Turkish Muslim Jihad to Exterminate Christian Armenians.”

Islam, not a day goes by without Muslims mass murdering somewhere in the name of their prophet.

They will “BURN IN HELL” alpng with people who allow this “INJUSTICE!!”

What is topping Christians from taking guns and retaliating? What is topping Christians from exterminating Muslims from their space? What is topping Christians in Europe from blowing up mosques in retaliation against jihad attacks? Are Muslims the only people who know how to commit genocide?

Because we are not mindless, bloodthirsty savages like them.

The Jews have a saying: “Whoever is compassionate to the cruel will be cruel to the compassionate.”

This is a wise saying, and it justifies waging war against the Fulani as it justified what God ordered the Israelites to do to the Canaanites. If you can’t kill the people, then destroy their herds so that they starve.

The Nigerian Christians are too poor to be able to buy guns.

In the Nigerian Civil War of 1967-70, the predominantly Christian Igbo people tried to secede from Nigeria and form their own state, Biafra. They were defeated with famine, carnage and great suffering. The Christians of Nigeria have been subdued ever since. Although Nigeria has sometimes elected a Christian President, the northern Muslims dominate the army and the economy.

The President’s inaction shows that GENOCIDE against Christians and ETHNIC CLEANSING have the been given the GO-AHEAD by the TOP LEVELS of the Nigerian government!

Muslims are abandoning Islam in Nigeria at a rapid rate, because the choice between MODERNITY and BRONZE-AGE BACKWARDNESS is extremely clear to all.

Islam has nothing to offer Nigeria that is of value. With Islam is fear, discrimination, vigilante murder and STAGNATION. Only local warlords benefit, but no one else. They are trying to bring back the medieval black kingdoms. MESSAGE TO THE WARLORDS: THOSE DAYS ARE GONE.

Dear African Christians you are under siege

Victims — Not Rohinja Muslims

Therefore …

Expect no outrage at NPR/ BBC.

Instead:

NPR/BBC will have PHYCOLOGY experts explain the importance of controlling our emotions of fear and anger during times of (New Normal) MUSLIM terrorism attacks.

Am in Nigeria right now and have been in Nigeria for the past 4 Decades.

Worse things than what you just read have happened and are still going on without any international coverage.

If you’re waiting for the West and Google to hive you anything, you’ll wait for eternity.

We are on Ground and can confirm to you that what you read was just a tip of the icebers.

Don’t let the Islamic sympathisers in the West and the Google company to show you anything.

German Politicians ‘Alarmed’ at Scale of Anti-Christian Hate Attacks

Posted by addisethiopia on February 6, 2018

Hate crime figures leaked by police in Germany have caused alarm, as they revealed murder, assault, and arson numbering among almost 100 attacks which targeted Christians in 2017.

Published by the Funke media group several months before annual crime statistics are due to be officially released, the Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) data showed attacks on churches and Christian symbols accounted for a quarter of the 97 cases.

At least 14 of the cases in the report involved asylum seekers and refugees, including the murder of an Afghan Christian convert by a fellow Afghan in May last year which prompted politicians to urge the BKA to record “anti-Christian crimes” separately for the first time.

Ansgar Heveling, interior policy spokesman for Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party, called the figures “alarming” and argued that the state “has a responsibility to punish these attacks severely and consistently… [as] anti-Semitic attacks are rightly being tackled”.

Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann, of the right-wing Christian Social Union (CSU), told Funke group newspapers: “Integration in Germany has to require tolerating its Christian, Western values and culture without any ifs or buts.”

Berthold Löffler, a political science professor at the University of Ravensburg-Weingarten, said the minister’s use of the word “tolerance” shows how little is actually being asked of the newcomers living at German taxpayers’ expense.

Requiring immigrants take on our values is too much to ask, but they really ought to tolerate us locals, even if they feel our values are a bit suspect,” he characterised the message of Hermann’s statement in a piece published at Tichy’s Insight, where he noted the CSU minister’s “demand” was mild and discussed the country’s “naive welcome culture”.

Stating the BKA figures are likely “only the tip of the iceberg” with regards to the number of anti-Christian attacks taking place in Germany, Löffler writes: “One can confidently assume that the mainstream media would much rather report on Islamophobic incidents and xenophobic crimes committed by ethnic Germans.”

Breitbart London reported last year how anti-Christian attacks had risen 245 per cent in France since 2008, while the number of anti-Muslim attacks saw a huge fall in the same period.

Data released by the French interior ministry showed anti-Christian acts accounting for 90 per cent of attacks on religious buildings and institutions — a figure which includes arson, violence, degradation, threats, and ‘insulting’ vandalism and graffiti.

Last week, it was alleged that French intelligence agencies had prior knowledge of one of the Islamic extremists involved in the beheading of Father Jacques Hamel in a Normandy church in 2016, but failed to act.

France: Anti-Christian Attacks Rise 245 Percent

Leading German Cardinal Opens the Door to Church Blessings of Homosexual Couples

Selecte Comments:

The Left is Waging War on Christians!

As long as they continue to let Muslims into the country,…..these attacks will only increase !

Why not? The left is anti-Christian anyway. They’re happy to let someone do their dirty work. Similar to the comment that a radical Muslim will kill you, and a moderate Muslim will let a radical kill you.

There is a direct correlation of the attacks on Christians and the number of muslims in any given country… predominately muslim countries have most of it’s Christians martyred in graves

Import people who vow to kill Christians and more violence against Christians breaks out. Who could of seen that one coming?

The invaders getting asked to tolerate Germans in Germany. I’m speechless

Globalist German politicians knew this would happen and are NOT alarmed. They want Christians out and Islam/Sharia in.

Muslims hate all non – muslims. There are 50 muslim countries in the world where they could / shoud go, but no, they come to the west to islamize!

The muslim concept of crime is different from ours, mere mortals.
Killing non -muslims is not a crime for muslims, this is their koranic duty like deceit of non muslims and evening prayer, stealing from non muslims not a crime for muslims, raping non muslim women – not a crime for muslims. Muslim men see raping non muslims as their birthright

Europe is finding this out one victim one woman at a time !

Muslim must not be allowed into the western countries !! It is like opening the prison gates and letting murderers and rapists out.

The Christian world was pretty much united against islam until a German by the name of Martin Luther kicked off the protestant reformation, and the subsequent wars and disunity in Europe which pitted Christian against Christian and sapped Europe of its strength with which it might have eventually pushed islam back once and for all. A few centuries later, a German named Adolf Hitler allied with muslims to wage war on his Christian neighbors, and according to his closest associates planned to eliminate Christianity entirely in Europe and replace it with islam as the new German religion. Less than a century later, yet another German named Angela Merkel invited millions of muslim invaders to flood into Europe, rape women and children, murder priests, and destroy all of Christendom.

So my question is, what is it about Germans that makes them so susceptible to the machinations of the devil against Christianity?

That will be a mystery for me for my entire life….
I think first, the German people were shamed and embarrassed after the War for allowing Hitler to do what he did to Jews, Germany, and Europe…..so they bent over backwards…..way too far.

Because of how they did the Jews and other non-whites – failing to rise up and stop Hitler -they feel they have to accept the murderous Muslims to “prove” they are not the Germans of the Hitler times….they are more afraid of the word “racist” than even we are here in America…..

And Collectivism has been bred deep into successive generations…..They haven’t learned yet that there is a big difference in being acceptive of people who are different but peaceful…..and accepting invaders into your home and allowing them to wreck it and kill you because you are different.
What an oxymoron.

Importing Muslim refugees who were revolting against being ruled by Alawite infidels (i.e. Assad and his sect), and expecting these people to be tolerant of Christian infidels in Germany is nothing short of insane.

Muslim Mob Lays Siege To Christian Church In Egypt

Posted by addisethiopia on December 23, 2017

An Egyptian Coptic Christian diocese says hundreds of Muslim demonstrators have assaulted one of its churches.

The diocese in Atfih said Saturday in a statement that the incident in Giza just outside Cairo took place after Friday prayers when demonstrators gathered outside the building and stormed it.

The demonstrators chanted hostile slogans and called for the church’s demolition, the statement says. It says they destroyed the church’s contents and assaulted Christians inside before security personnel arrived and dispersed them.

It also said the wounded were transferred to a nearby hospital but didn’t elaborate. The church, yet to be sanctioned by the state, has been observing prayers for 15 years.

Coptic Christians make up about 10% of Egypt’s 96 million population. Islamic extremists have targeted them in a sereis of brutal attacks in recent years.

In October, CCTV footage captured the brutal moment a Coptic Orthodox priest was stabbed in the back several times in Egypt’s capital, Cairo.

Father Samaan Shehata was collecting humanitarian aid for his parish in Beni Suef on 12 October when a man started chasing him with a large knife. He died from serious stab wounds in hospital later that day.

In May, at least 29 people were killed when the Islamic State (Isis) terror group attacked a bus heading to the Saint Samuel monastery, near Minya.

Another 29 people were killed when an Isis suicide bomber targeted St Mark’s Coptic Cathedral in Cairo last December.

In February 2015, Isis circulated images of its militants executing 21 Coptic Christians who had been kidnapped from Sirte, Libya. In response, Egypt launched air strikes targeting Isis positions.

Time for Christians of This World to Form the Organisation of Christian Cooperation

Posted by addisethiopia on December 22, 2017

My Note: This’s a fascinating thought. I think Ethiopia — as, argueably, the 1st Christian nation in the world, and that has no diabolical agendas or imperial ambitions – is a perfect candidate to take the initiative in forming an Organisation of Christian Cooperation. A historical chance for The Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church.

[1 John 3:10 ]

This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not God’s child, nor is anyone who does not love their brother and sister.

The OIC Is The Muslim World’s Voice. Christian Countries Should Have One Too

The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) bills itself as “the collective voice of the Muslim world.”

Founded in 1972 as the “Organisation of the Islamic Conference” and adopting its current name in 2011, the OIC joins 57 Member States in what is billed as the second-biggest intergovernmental organization after the United Nations. The OIC’s declared mission is —

‘… to safeguard and protect the interests of the Muslim world in the spirit of promoting international peace and harmony among various people of the world…. The Organization has the singular honor to galvanize the Ummah [i.e., all Muslims as a community] into a unified body and have actively represented the Muslims by espousing all causes close to the hearts of over 1.5 billion Muslims of the world.

The Organization has consultative and cooperative relations with the UN and other intergovernmental organizations to protect the vital interests of the Muslims and to work for the settlement of conflicts and disputes involving Member States. In safeguarding the true values of Islam and the Muslims, the organization has taken various steps to remove misperceptions and has strongly advocated elimination of discrimination against Muslims in all forms and manifestations.’

Despite intra-Islamic conflicts – notably the Sunni-Shiite divide led by Saudi Arabia and Iran respectively – the OIC is vocal in promoting a unified Muslim perspective on issues where there is a broad consensus. For example, the OIC recently issued a strong statement denouncing U.S. President Donald Trump’s declaration that the United States considers Jerusalem to be Israel’s capital. The OIC’s information chief also took a position on the internal affairs of traditionally Christian European countries, to the effect that mass Muslim migration – what Srdja Trifkovic has called the Third Muslim Invasion – is really doing Europe a big favor. No, it’s no bother at all – we’ll just help ourselves!

Whatever one thinks of the OIC’s activities and perspectives on various issues, one should nonetheless commend Muslim countries for their activism. Keep in mind, the OIC is an official organization of governments in the Islamic world, not of religious, academic, or NGO activists, though the latter contribute to the OIC’s mission. Again, give credit where credit is due.

But where is the comparable activism by the governments of Christian countries? There is certainly an ample empirical basis for a Christian version of the OIC. Consider:

There are almost two and half billion Christians in the world. The number of Muslims is about 1.8 billion. Granted, the reality behind such numbers largely reflects formal identification rather than active belief and worship, but the social importance of even pro forma self-description or communal tradition should not be dismissed.

  • Approximately 120 sovereign states have a Christian majority.

  • This compares to about 50 countries with a Muslim majority.

There are four countries formally called Islamic republics (Afghanistan, Iran, Mauritania, and Pakistan), plus approximately 20 others where Islam’s leading status is defined in law. For example, Article 2 of the Constitution of Oman states that “The religion of the State is Islam and Islamic Sharia is the basis for legislation”; Article 1 of the Basic Law of Saudi Arabia states that the kingdom “is a sovereign Arab Islamic state with Islam as its religion,” with the Sunni Wahhabist sect in practice given preeminence over the minority Shia. By contrast, because of Christianity’s inherent distinction between the kingdom of God and the kingdom of Caesar, it would be hard to envision comparable “Christian states,” though the Holy See (the Vatican) is a Christian theocracy. Nor is there a Christian counterpart to Sharia as a religious basis for civil law. Nonetheless there are approximately 30 states where Christianity, or a particular Christian church, is singled out for a unique legal status or described as the traditional or leading faith. These include the Church of England, the Lutheran churches in Scandinavia, the Orthodox churches of Greece and Georgia, and the Roman Catholic Church in Argentina (Constitution, Article 2: “The Federal Government supports the Roman Catholic Apostolic religion.”), Costa Rica, Panama, Malta, Monaco, Liechtenstein, and others. For example, the Lateran Treaties regulating relations with the Vatican are affirmed in the Italian Constitution (Article 7). The Constitution of Georgia states (Article 9(1)) that “State shall recognise the outstanding role of the Apostolic Autocephalous Orthodox Church of Georgia in the history of Georgia and its independence from the State.” Several other states grant de facto primacy to a church without formal legal sanction, with the primacy accorded the Russian Orthodox Church a notable example. Finally there are many secular countries where Christian morality and heritage are central to national identity and state policy. Even the United States once prided itself on calling itself a Christian nation, in substance if not in law, in the words of many prominent statesmen well into the 20th century.

The flags of about 20 countries include specifically Islamic symbols, either the crescent moon or the shahada statement of faith (notably on the flag of Saudi Arabia). About 30 national flags carry a depiction of the Christian cross, with an additional dozen or so if naval ensigns are counted (for example the Saint Andrew’s cross on the flags of the Russian and Belgian fleets, and the Saint George’s cross on the ensigns of India, South Africa, Latvia, Lithuania, Ukraine, Trinidad and Tobago, and others whose civil flags do not display a cross).

What would be the purpose of a Christian version of the OIC? (For purposes of discussion, let’s call it the “Organisation of Christian Cooperation,” or the OCC.) Let’s take a leaf from the OIC and paraphrase: the mission of the OCC would be to –

“… protect the vital interests of Christians and to work for the settlement of conflicts and disputes involving Member States. In safeguarding the true values of Christianity and Christians, the OCC will take various steps to remove misperceptions and strongly advocate elimination of discrimination against Christians in all forms and manifestations.”

That would be a pretty good start, wouldn’t it? We could perhaps begin inside some of the nominally Christian countries, like the United Kingdom, where a spokesman for the government of Prime Minister Theresa May recently refused to confirm that publicly affirming the divinity of Jesus Christ could not land a person in jail for “hate speech.” The notion that simple expression of Christian belief and adherence to Christian moral principles, notably in the area of sexuality, constitutes hate has become a global phenomenon. No other religion’s believers are routinely defamed in this way.

Of course, as with the OIC a prospective OCC could and should be vocal on international issues. Starting in the 1990s, it began to be apparent even in polite, secular company that persecution of Christians was rampant in some countries, and that indeed more Christians died for their faith in the 20th century alone than in all the 19 centuries preceding it.

To come to grips with anti-Christian persecution, the U.S. Congress enacted the 1998 International Religious Freedom Act, which in implementation unfortunately soon veered towards promoting generic “religious liberty” and away from countering actual persecution – chiefly of Christians at the hands of communist regimes (mainly in the past) and Muslim militants (now).

Perhaps Christian persecution would be a good topic for an Organisation of Christian Cooperation to raise with the OIC, asking it as an intergovernmental organization to take forceful action to “remove misperceptions” that Islam is intolerant by insisting that all persecution of and discrimination against Christians by Muslims cease!

After all, even the Administration of President Barack Obama, who proudly declared that the U.S. was no longer “just” a Christian nation, was eventually shamed into declaring that the Islamic State was committing genocide against Christians in Iraq and Syria (though Secretary of State John Kerry took care to put Yazidis first, and then added Shia Muslims and others to avoid any appearance of caring about Christians in particular). In “safeguarding the true values of Islam and the Muslims” the OIC rarely has taken note of maltreatment of Christians. If an OCC comes into being, it must vigorously champion persecuted Christians.

Another example where Member States of a future OCC could make a positive contribution is help with postwar reconstruction in Syria, including the rebuilding of churches. The Russian government has pledged its assistance with the participation of the Orthodox Church and religious organizations. Why shouldn’t other Christian countries pitch in – not just in generic reconstruction aid but specifically to help maintain Christians in the region where Christianity was born? This kind of effort would be relevant not only in Syria but across the Middle East.

Which countries might be candidates to join a hypothetical Organisation of Christian Cooperation?

Again, let’s look at the OIC, the membership of which mainly consists of countries with a Muslim majority but also includes eight countries where Muslims are a minority: Ivory Coast, Gabon, Guyana, Mozambique, Nigeria, Suriname, Togo, and Uganda. Russia and Thailand, which are majority Christian and Buddhist respectively but have significant Muslim minorities, are OIC Observers. Thus a future OCC should not only welcome all majority Christian countries – including some that may also belong to the OIC – but others where Christians are numerically or socially significant.

For example, while South Korea is only about one-third Christian, Christians form a solid majority of that country’s citizens participating in organized religious activities. About thirty countries in sub-Saharan Africa would be obvious OCC Member State candidates, as would virtually all of Latin America. China and India, where Christian minorities outnumber the total populations of many majority-Christian countries, should certainly be welcomed as Members or Observers. Paradoxically, the main reluctance is likely to be found among such historically Christian countries as Britain, France, Germany, the Low Countries, Scandinavia, and – alas! – the U.S. and Canada, where the forces of militant secularism have become increasingly intolerant of any indication of Christian public identity among officialdom.

That leaves the question of which states might take the initiative in forming an Organisation of Christian Cooperation.

The Vatican would be an obvious key player but might not want to take the lead to avoid perceptions that the OCC might become a mechanism for Roman Catholic influence. The same could be said for Russia, whose leadership could be taken to be a front for Russia’s narrow state interests. But it should be noted that both the Holy See and the Kremlin have indicated their willingness to partner in defense of Europe’s historic Christian identity and social mores. What is notable is that this is state-to-state discourse, not just religious dialogue between the Roman Catholic and Russian Orthodox churches.

Perhaps the most promising current trend is the revival of national traditions that incorporate Christian consciousness in Central Europe. For example, Poland’s new Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has declared: “My dream is to make [Europe] Christian again, since unfortunately, in many places, people no longer sing Christmas carols, the churches are empty and are turning into museums, and this is very sad.” Likewise, Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orbán (a Protestant in a majority Roman Catholic country) has spoken out boldly and eloquently in defense of the Christian character of his own country but of Europe as a whole, as well as of Christians persecuted in the Middle East:

A great many times over the course of our history we Hungarians have had to fight to remain Christian and Hungarian. For centuries we fought on our homeland’s southern borders, defending the whole of Christian Europe, while in the twentieth century we were the victims of the communist dictatorship’s persecution of Christians. … For us, therefore, it is today a cruel, absurd joke of fate for us to be once again living our lives as members of a community under siege. For wherever we may live around the world – whether we’re Roman Catholics, Protestants, Orthodox Christians or Copts – we are members of a common body, and of a single, diverse and large community.

Our mission is to preserve and protect this community. … Today it is a fact that Christianity is the world’s most persecuted religion. It is a fact that 215 million Christians in 108 countries around the world are suffering some form of persecution. It is a fact that four out of every five people oppressed due to their religion are Christians. It is a fact that in Iraq in 2015 a Christian was killed every five minutes because of their religious belief. It is a fact that we see little coverage of these events in the international press, and it is also a fact that one needs a magnifying glass to find political statements condemning the persecution of Christians.

But the world’s attention needs to be drawn to the crimes that have been committed against Christians in recent years. The world should understand that in fact today’s persecutions of Christians foreshadow global processes. The world should understand that the forced expulsion of Christian communities and the tragedies of families and children living in some parts of the Middle East and Africa have a wider significance: in fact they threaten our European values. The world should understand that what is at stake today is nothing less than the future of the European way of life, and of our identity.’

As the neo-liberal international order (symbolized by twin EU and NATO bureaucratic centers in Brussels) continue their decline, a revival of the national – and dare we hope, Christian? – spirit may be possible even in Europe. Such a revival could be an important impetus to creating an Organisation of Christian Cooperation, and in turn an OCC could help encourage that revival. This is not to minimize historic animosities even among Christians. The Polish-Russian and Croatian-Serbian enmities come readily to mind.

But if Iranians and Saudis can come together when the practical needs of Muslims per se require it, can Christians do any less? Does Christianity’s Founder, Who commanded His followers to love one another, expect any less from us? Perhaps an OCC could itself become a catalyst for reconciliation among Christians as much as a voice within the global community.

We can maybe even dare to hope that the United States is not quite lost. After all, Barack Hussein Obama is out, Donald John Trump is in. He’s even told Americans it’s alright to say “Merry Christmas!” again. If an Organisation of Christian Cooperation were to be formed, Melania Trump would make a great honorary patroness!

Trump Blasts Theresa the Appeaser: ‘Don’t Focus On Me, Focus on the Destructive Radical Islamic Terrorism in The Uk’

Posted by addisethiopia on November 30, 2017

He was responding to the uproar in the United Kingdom following his retweet of three tweets from the “Britain First” group, which is a considered extreme in the United Kingdom.

A spokesman for the prime minister said the group spreads “hateful narratives which peddle lies and stoke tensions.”

The first video showed a Muslim youth being thrown to his death by Islamic activists during 2013 anti-government rioting in Cairo, Egypt. The rioting took place after the military removed Egypt’s Islamic government, which was controlled by the Egypt-based Muslim Brotherhood. The alleged murderer, Mahmoud Ramadan, was hanged in 2015.

A second video shows a Muslim destroying a Christian statue deemed by Muslims to be a false idol. Islamic law considers Allah to be the only deity and it bars worship of deceased people. That rule applies to people who are regarded as famous Muslims, including Mary, mother of Jesus, who Muslims say was a prophet before the final prophet, Muhammad.

The video ends with the statue-smashing Muslim calling for “Takbir,” or an affirmation of Islamic faith. He gets the orthodox response, “Allahu Akbar,” meaning “Allah is greater [than your God],” which also means that Allah is the single deity supreme over all others, including Mary, the mother of Jesus. (I posted this very same video on my YouTube Channel in the exact month of November back in 2013)

Selected Comments:

I️ don’t understand England and all the politically correct media fools in this country. They are all offended by what Trump tweets about. Instead they should be more offended by these Muslims and the acts of violence and vandalism in the videos.

They are offended that he’s drawing attention to it.

The Hidden Reason for the Trump Muslim Tweets.
-Trump’s lawyers didn’t like them because the tweets send a big F-you to Robert Mueller, who in a cowardly action removed all references to Muslim terrorism from FBI manuals.
-Trump is also sending a message to the Deplorables and killing the conspiracy theory that Masterson controls him. Masterson is another apologist who blocked security people from even using the words Islamic Terrorism.
And the Obvious Reasons.
-Trump is a Christian. Muslims have made Christians the most persecuted people on earth in 2016 and Trump is bringing it up.
-It also sends to a big F you to people like Obama, the media, the EU and all the practitioners of Identity Politics who lie about persecution and crime by Muslims.
And Finally,
-Trump is doing what all the Swamp and Identity Politics liars cannot stand. The one thing they hate more than anything, and that is standing up and telling the truth.

The truth is Trump has NO RESPECT for May. He SEES what she is doing to the U.K..
Trump sees HER as another Merkel – destroying their country.

Treason May and coal burner Rudd allowed hundreds of returning ISIS fighters back into the UK. How dare they moralize against a leader comitted to protecting his people.
Just resign May, nobody wants you as PM.

MAGA people see what’s going with the Christian persecution, destruction of the churches, Cross, Jesus statues, the video above of Jesus’ Mother statue broken, and more by radical Muslims. In response the MAGA people need to fight back by celebrating the true meaning of Christmas and displaying Nativity Scenes on their property, sign of God Bless America, displaying a Cross on their property, saying Merry Christmas, sending Christmas cards to family, friends, and coworkers, and more. Do not let the Left who is in Alliance with the Muslims bully you. Celebrate Christmas the Birth of Jesus Christ.

የጥቃቱ ዘመቻ በጣም አሰቃቂ ስለነበር ክርስቲያን ወገኖቻችን ራሳቸውን ለብዙ ሰዓታት በቤተክርስቲያን ውስጥ እንዲቆለፉ ተገደው ነበር። ጥፋታቸው ምንድን ነው?

ለአብርሃም፣ ይስሐቅና ያዕቆብ አምላክ፣ ለኢየሱስ ክርስቶስ ጸሎት በማድረሳቸው!

ወገኖች፣ በግብፃውያን ክርስቲያኖች ላይ አደጋዎችና ጥቃቶች እየበዙ መጥተዋል፤ ፕሬዚደንት ሲሲም፡ በአባይ ሰበብ፡ በክርስቲያን ኢትዮጵያ ላይ በየሣምንቱ ዛቻቸውን ይሰነዝራሉ።

ክርስትያኖቹ ሰላማዊ እንቅልፍ በተኙበት ሰው መግደል ጀነት (ገነት) እንደሚያስገባ በተነገራቸው ሙስሊሙች በሰይፍ እየተሰየፉ ይገኛሉ

ይህን የመሰለ ዘግናኝ ድርጊት ለማድረግ ማሰብም ሆነ ድርጊቱን መፈፀም አስላማዊ ትምህርቱ ያመጣው ተፅህኖ መሆኑ እሙን ነው

Horror As 1,000-Strong Mob Attacks Church Forcing Christians To Lock Themselves Inside


CHRISTIANS were forced to lock the doors of their church for their own safety as a furious mob launched an attack on the building as tensions continue to soar in Egypt

More than 1,000 people gathered outside a recently-renovated Coptic church in Mina, Egypt, to intimidate and threaten those inside.

Police were called on October 26 and the doors of the Saint George Church, as well as the on-site children’s nursery, was bolted shut for defence.

Despite the aggression of the crowd, it was the Copts who were held responsible for the incident.

The heads of the Coptic congregation in the area were forced into attending a peace meeting, which aimed to stop the conflict between the group and the local Muslim community.

A source close to the church said: “Copts had to agree to the reconciliation that will be held this evening in the village hall. A written agreement was presented that indicated a framework of friendliness, love and brotherhood.

A reconciliation and waiver of all records between the two sides must be signed, including a ‘non-provoke crisis’ clause.”

The “non-provoke clause” is particularly controversial, with critics saying it backs up attempts to close down the Coptic churches by sinister means.

In the week leading up to the church re-opening, flyers were posted across the area with taunting messages apparently written by Coptic leaders.

One said: “We re-opened the church against your will!”

However local Coptic leaders say the messages were written by Muslims in an attempt to stir up anger at their church.

It is just the latest in a long list of incidents in which Copts in Egypt were threatened.

Last month four churches in Mina, including the re-furbished one, were closed after furious locals launched vicious attacks on worshippers, emboldened by a lack of police support.

The Coptic leader in the region said authorities were doing nothing to bring those responsible to justice.

Anba Macarius said: “Churches are closed, the Coptic Christians are being attacked and their property destroyed, and there is no deterrent.

The Copts always pay the price of this coexistence, not the aggressors.

The reactions of officials are disappointing, and when there is any dispute or an attack, the first alternative is to close the church and put pressure only on the Copts with impunity for the aggressors.”

The Coptic Orthodox Church is the largest Christian church in Egypt and the Middle East’s biggest Christian community with a history dating back nearly 2,000 years.

Coptic Christians, who make up about 10 per cent of Egypt’s 90 million people, have long complained of discrimination under successive Egyptian leaders.

Egypt has been named one of the most dangerous in the world for churchgoers, with Egypt’s Christian community increasingly insecure since ISIS spread through Iraq and Syria in 2014, ruthlessly targeting religious minorities.

Selected Comments:

Can you imagine the outrage if it were the other way round.

Christians are the most persecuted group in the world. Even in the west, we are persecuted by the liberals. So much for tolerance and equality.

These are the people we should allow to come to the UK not the “others”

And still western Christian countries do nothing. We need to start supporting and protecting Christian minorities who are under threat by ‘others’.

The ‘others are getting support from the globalists who are driving the anti-Christianity uprising because as satanists that ‘other’ religion/cult is the nearest thing to it.

The ‘others’ are moslems, was that too difficult?

If you knew just how quickly Mr. Censor takes down my comments if I step even a cm over the line, you’d understand why I wrote ‘others’.

This Christmas Day should be declared as a national call to prayers for the Coptic church in Egypt by the Church of England and the Church of Scotland and others such as Methodists and Baptists. If ever there was a need or a reason for a joint statement on the Christian faith then this is the time. Comment please Archbishops, Pastors and Elders NOW – TODAY. Such vile attacks are not challenged enough by our churches here and our government has some of that blood on their hands for not speaking out and making this a priority. Christians and churches are being attacked here in Britain too and nothing is said or done. Christians are the most persecuted religious group in the world at this time and we need to speak up and speak out.

Is Britain Becoming a Christianophobic Country

Posted by addisethiopia on November 9, 2017

Kicked ‘like a football’ were the words used by a Pakistani Christian to describe a brutal assault that left him unconscious outside a restaurant in Derby last month. The victim, Tajamal Amar, claims Muslim men singled him out for offence he’d caused by displaying a cross and two large red poppies on his car, and for being a Kaffir – a derogatory term for non-Muslims. As it happens, the attack occurred towards the end of National Hate Crime Awareness Week, and has been recorded as a hate crime. The British Pakistani Christian Association, a group who’ve been supporting Amar, inform me his wife and daughter have been moved to a new location; he remains in hospital. But is his case symptomatic of a broader anti-Christian sentiment brewing in Britain?

Persecution of Christians in Pakistan (from where Amar was forced to flee), the Middle East, China, Nigeria and Modi’s India is well documented. Isis has committed genocide in Iraq and Syria, edging Christianity towards extinction. The bloodletting of Egypt’s Copts continues. In Pakistan, blasphemy laws are enforced, as in the cause célèbre of Asia Bibi, who remains languishing on death row. But when the BBC asks whether it’s ‘inadvisable’ to display poppies or hang a crucifix from your rear view mirror – here in Britain – it makes it harder to ignore the echoes of intolerance reverberating in our midst. While liberals and interfaith interlocutors struggle to have honest conversations about doctrinally motived hate, the truth is people like Amar aren’t alone.

Last November, Nissar Hussain a Christian convert (from Islam) was forced to leave his Bradford home under armed police escort following years of persecution. His terrible ordeal culminated in 2015, with a sickening assault outside his family home (captured on CCTV) by two hooded thugs, one brandishing a pickaxe handle. Hussain suffered a shattered kneecap and broken hand. A softly spoken and intelligent man – Hussain tells me he suffers from chronic post-traumatic stress disorder and feels betrayed by both politicians and Anglican leaders. Apostates like Hussain are of course particularly vulnerable, because Islamists believe it’s their God given duty to kill them. But contempt for Christianity comes from many quarters, not just Islamists.

In fact, the government’s hate crime action plan from last year, Action Against Hate, points to the chilling case of a Christian teenager who faced physical abuse and a mock crucifixion by his coworkers. When Belfast bakers Ashers refused to make a cake with the slogan ‘support gay marriage’, they were subjected to arson and death threats by gay rights extremists. Is this not Christianophobia?

Following the jihadist murder of Father Jacques Hamal in France last year, the Home Office released a £2.4 million fund to enhance security for places of worship. Of the applicants there were 225 churches, 36 mosques, 11 gudwaras and three other places of worship (funding for synagogues is separate). Remarkably, many churches that bid successfully used funds to protect themselves from Satanists and witches. A middle-aged vicar I spoke with from South West England told me how a witch had cursed him in the expectation he’d ‘drop dead’. The drawing of pentagrams on the church’s walls was a regular occurrence. If he’d chosen to tell the police, I suppose a curse could be classified as hate crime.

But how big is the problem? I’ve had access to a fascinating response to freedom of information requests to 25 UK police forces (from 2014) by think tank Parliament Street. This unearthed 165 or so incidents affecting Britain’s clergy between 2008-13. Incidents range from robbery, assaults like grievous bodily harm (GBH), actual bodily harm (ABH), through to obsessive stalkers, and bites from dogs, and even humans. A record relating to an incident in Hertfordshire shockingly reads: ‘Offender approached the Injured Party and bit fingers.’ Serving the Son of God has its risks. However, complaints of Christianophobia are thin on the ground, despite media and politicians showing an indifference to Christian suffering.

Home Office statistics from last year on religious hate crimes in England, Wales and Northern Ireland indicate there were 316 incidents (out of a total of 4213) affecting Christians between March 2015 and March 2016. Organisations like National Churchwatch who describe themselves as a ‘leading organisation for security and advice in the Christian sector’, believe anti-Christian hate crime is significantly under-reported. Director Nick Tolson previously sat on a Home Office panel awarding security grants to places of worship. He said that, unlike anti-Semitism and Islamophobia, anti-Christian hate is predominantly a phenomenon seen in rural Britain, rather than in urban areas. Tolson, a former police officer told me, ‘National Churchwatch is working with True Vision to run four seminars around the country to tackle anti-Christian hate crime. The seminars will involve talking with clergy about how to keep safe and how to deal with crime should it occur.’

His organisation is collaborating with academics from Royal Holloway, University of London in developing a survey aimed at clergy from the Church of England, Church of Wales and the Roman Catholic Church. A snapshot into the sorts of crimes clergy experience, and if the context is anti-Christian, will no doubt help inform policy makers moving forwards.

Meanwhile, the investigation into Amar’s case continues and two men have been interviewed in connection with the assault on suspicion of causing GBH. It’s sobering to think that someone who fled religious persecution overseas now feels unsafe in Britain.

Godless Europe Welcomes the Murderers and Rapists with Open Arms but Deports Persecuted Christians

Dutchman Put On Trial For Ethiopian War Crimes In 1970s


A Dutch citizen will go on trial in the Netherlands next Monday on charges he committed war crimes in Ethiopia in the 1970s.

The 63-year-old Dutchman, who was born in Ethiopia, is accused of the incarceration, torture and murder of opponents of former Ethiopian leader Mengistu Haile Mariam in the late ‘70s.

As Mengistu’s representative in the Ethiopian province of Gojjam, the man is accused of ordering the killing of 75 young prisoners in 1978 and of being responsible for the incarceration and inhumane treatment of more than 200 people.

An Ethiopian court has sentenced the man to death, in absentia, for his role in what was called the “red terror”, which the communist military junta of Mengistu conducted after the ouster of the Ethiopian emperor, Haile Selassie, in 1974.

The Ethiopian sentence can’t be carried out in the Netherlands, making a new trial the best option to hold the man to account, the Dutch national prosecutor’s office said on Tuesday.

The trial in The Hague is based on an investigation by the International Crimes Team of the Dutch national police. It contains the statements of several Ethiopian witnesses, some of whom will be present at the trial, the prosecutor’s office said.

The accused has been held in provisional custody in the Netherlands since 2015.

Mengistu was found guilty in absentia of genocide in 2007, after he and top members of his military government were accused of killing thousands during his 17-year rule. Mengistu was ousted in 1991 and fled to Zimbabwe, where he still lives.

Christians Face Worse Persecution Than At Any Time In History

Posted by addisethiopia on October 14, 2017

Persecution against Christians is the worst it has ever been in history, a new report from a Catholic charity is claiming.

Looking at 13 countries where Christians face the worst abuses the study by Catholic charity Aid to the Church in Need (ACN), released on Thursday, found the outlook has worsened in all of them with the one exception being Saudi Arabia ‘where the situation was already so bad it could scarcely get any worse’, the report says.

Persecuted and Forgotten? warns Christians in many countries will not survive if violence against them continues and highlighted ‘unspeakable atrocities’ around the world including in North Korea where believers face ‘enforced starvation, abortion, and reports of faithful being hung on crosses over a fire and others being crushed under a steamroller’.

It issues a scathing attack on Western governments as speakers lined up to criticise their response at an event in the House of Lords on Thursday night to launch the research.

Lord Alton of Liverpool, a cross-bench peer and religious freedom campaigner, said there was a need ‘to separate propaganda from the reality’ when hearing about money governments have donated as ministers said UK had promised £169.5 million of support to Iraq since 2014.

Father Salar Kajo, a priest on the Nineveh Plains in northern Iraq where many Christians used to live, said: ‘We Christians see very little of this aid. In reality there is nothing.

‘I am there, I am working there, I know there is nothing. It is the church that has rebuilt the houses. UNICEF come just to paint the walls,’ he told the audience of MPs, officials and journalists.

The ACN report says: ‘Governments in the West and the UN failed to offer Christians in countries such as Iraq and Syria the emergency help they needed as genocide got underway.’

John Pontifex, spokesman for the charity and editor of the report said: ‘In terms of the numbers of people involved, the gravity of the crimes committed and their impact, it is clear that the persecution of Christians is today worse than at any time in history.

‘Not only are Christians more persecuted than any other faith group, but ever-increasing numbers are experiencing the very worst forms of persecution.’

But as well as persecution in the Middle East at the hands of Islamic extremism, the report also outlines abuses in Nigeria where ISIS-affiliate Boko Haram has displaced nearly 2 million people.

Lord Alton said: ‘It brings great shame on us that we take so little interest to what happens to our brothers and sisters in Nigeria.’

The report adds: ‘The pervasive nature of persecution – and evidence implicating regimes with whom the West has close trading and strategic links – mean that it behoves our governments to use their influence to stand up for minorities, especially Christians.

‘No longer should Christians be sacrificed on the altar of strategic expediency and economic advantage.’

Fake News Media Silent As Christians In The Middle East Being Driven Out By Islamic Terrorism

The forces of Satan and darkness are hard at work to steal, kill and destroy in these last days with the prime target being true believers in Jesus Christ.

However, the words of Jesus still ring true today, more than ever before regarding His church:…the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it”. (Matthew 16:18).
