In Ramadan Massacre, Egyptian Christians Killed for Refusing to Renounce Their Faith in Jesus

Posted by addisethiopia on May 29, 2017

As more and more details emerge concerning Friday’s Ramadan attack on a busload of Christians on pilgrimage, the more it becomes evident that these 29 martyrs died solely because they were Christians.

Survivors of the attack said that the ten masked Islamic State militants did not merely open fire on the bus full of Christian pilgrims on their way to the Monastery of Saint Samuel the Confesor, but that the victims were made to descend from the bus and asked one by one whether they were Christians before being shot by the assailants.

According to one of the chaplains of the group, Father Rashed, as each pilgrim came off the bus they were asked to renounce their Christian faith and profess belief in Islam, but all of them—even the children—refused. Each was killed in cold blood with a gunshot to the head or the throat.

In a statement Friday, President Donald Trump said the “merciless slaughter of Christians in Egypt tears at our hearts and grieves our souls.”

Wherever innocent blood is spilled, a wound is inflicted upon humanity,” the statement said. “But this attack also steels our resolve to bring nations together for the righteous purpose of crushing the evil organizations of terror, and exposing their depraved, twisted, and thuggish ideology.”

The attack occurred in the midst of a three-month state of emergency period in Egypt following twin attacks on Coptic churches on Palm Sunday last month that killed some 46 Christians who were in church honoring the celebrations. The Islamic State claimed responsibility for those attacks as well.

On Saturday, the Islamic State claimed responsibility for Friday’s slaughter through its Amaq news agency.

Selected Comments:

May their souls rest in peace in Heaven with God and Jesus. Ever one God, world without end.

Do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell., [MT 10:28]

May these admirable Brothers and Sisters in Christ, always be in the presence of the Master.

These are true Heaven-bound martyrs, and no Muslim will ever meet them again.

What bothers me is that the western world fails to recognize or won’t admit the fact that these people have been fighting a holy war against it for 2000 year

Has the MSM covered the part where one by one they (even the children) were executed for refusing to renounce Christ?

The MSM do not realize they worship Climate Change which they say is man made thus promoting man into the position of God. They are not covering the massacre of Christians as it goes against their humanistic faith. To me they are no better than the terrorists as they do nothing to but cover up the atrocities happening to Christians by not reporting on what is happening and supporting the Muslim causes as peaceful when that is not true.

As a son of Middle Eastern Jews who fled to the United States because of Islam, I cannot do anything else but sympathize strongly with Egypt’s Coptic Christians and other Middle East /North Africa Christians. Western leaders, especially in Europe are cowards. Ignoring the oppression of their co-coreligionists, and holding the door wide open for Islam. SHAMEFUL!

Having lived in Southern Africa for five yrs, I compare the behavior of the Muslims to two indigenous snakes of there: The black mamba and the puff adder, the first one is extremely aggressive and lethal (Like a Jihadi), you can’t outrun it because he can slither in the bush at 17mls x hr, the other can stay coiled for days at the time immobile, but walk by two feet of him and zap! you will be shortly dead. (peaceful Muslim)

To understand islam, one must realize that the “god” of islam, the fellow that the muslims call allah, is in reality none other than satan himself. Once you realize that it all falls into place.

It is well past time for men and women everywhere to call on the good people who are Muslims, and implore them to renounce the hideously evil ideology of islam.

Renounce this evil ideology once and for all.

The time for ‘tolerance’ is past.

The time for ‘understanding’ is over.

The time for ACTION is now.

Let no civilized person pretend anymore that he can be a member of a murderous death cult and be any different than the modern equivalent of something even worse than a WWII Nazi.

The time for all good people to renounce this great evil is at hand. And now is the time for any adherent of islam who claims to be a decent human being, to prove that by leaving islam and helping humanity to defeat this ideological Ebola called islam.

Muslims Butcher 28 Christians While Thousands Of Christians Gather Together Declaring They Will Never Be Conquered By Islam’s Satanic Religion

Posted by addisethiopia on May 27, 2017

Christian Copts are the most stubborn Christians on earth. You will never find a Coptic Christian convert to Islam under duress. So how did the Christians of Egypt react when Muslim terrorists attacked a bus full of Christians killing twenty eight Christians traveling on the road to the St. Samuel Monastery in the Minya? In the Middle East and from ancient times, in a wedding they make this sound they call “Zaghareet” (Ululation):

Of course, the bodies are brought into the church at the sounds of women making these very sounds while mothers wail and the priests sing with joy. The Martyrs brought in the church then the procession is a joyous one. Copts show Muslims that their martyrs are in a wedding of a different type than Muslims having weddings with virgins with carnal joys. Here is how they present the bride of Christ:

And of course, the funeral for the Christian martyrs presenting them to Christ:

While some in the West might see these scenes as foreign to them, I remind; being made in God’s image and likeness means that we have within ourselves the creative nature of God. Copts bow to the martyrs. They make icons of them.

Yet I have people comment that icons and bowing are acts of worship.

I chuckle at such statements from people who are oblivious to the Bible. God creates, so we create and is why God required the Israelites to make 3-d icons of angels on the Ark and even Joshua bowed face down towards it:

Joshua and the elders of Israel tore their clothing in dismay, threw dust on their heads, and bowed face down to the ground before the Ark of the LORD until evening (Joshua 7:6).

If bowing was worship, why then when two angels approach Lot in the gateway of the city of Sodom, Lot sees them and he “bowed with his face to the ground.”

No objection from the angel. Why? Because you are supposed to bow.

When Abigal saw David, she quickly got off her donkey and bowed down before David with her face to the ground. She fell at his feet.”

And I ask; did Lot get rebuke from the angels? Did David rebuke Abigal?

NEVER.

Then the Lord opened Balaam’s eyes, and he saw the angel of the Lord standing in the road with his sword drawn. So he bowed low and fell facedown” (Numbers 22:31).

No rebuke.

I can show several examples.

There are even verses that speak of human statues and God ordered it (hint, its in Ezekiel’s temple).

This alone blows away all what the scoffers say. Every day I read poorly written comments and its sad.

But will these people heed? I guess not. Why? Because perhaps they are tares. A tare thinks its wheat. Us saying this diminishes our donations, but who cares.

People kiss the hand of the priest and the priest washed my feet.

Is that an act of worship? No.

May nations serve you and peoples bow down to you.” (Gen 27:29)

There are a ton of verses that debunk these claims:

The company of the prophets from Jericho, who were watching, said, ‘The spirit of Elijah is resting on Elisha.’ And they went to meet him and bowed to the ground before him.”

When Bathsheba went to King Solomon to speak to him for Adonijah, the king stood up to meet her, bowed down to her and sat down on his throne.”

So what say the tare? Are these so westernized that they lost the postures of respect, honor and duty?

Did they forget “blessed are the meek and humble at heart”?

The issue is not scripture, the issue is the lack of desire to search the scripture.

So likewise, all of these martyrs are icons of Christ, just like all of the martyrs of old who were depicted in Christendom’s paintings.

But in the West many object to having icons of martyrs. Where are the statues of the martyrs, where are the paintings of their contests, over which they conquered and for which they received their crowns of glory?

EVERYONE HAS ICONS. Why do we have statues of presidents, politicians, feminists and explorers, yet we do not dare inundate the society with the images that would reminds us of the most important thing? that is, the realization that we are not here for ourselves, that our “bodies are members of Christ” (1 Corinthians 6:15), that “you are not your own” (1 Corinthians 6:19), that we are given a destiny that breaks through the physical, the beautiful purpose to stand in the midst of this capricious world, as a beacon of order, as an exemplifier of harmony, as a living candle that shines with the unseen light that repulses the infernal spirits naked to the eye, and pulls in those whose souls are parched by the waves of the watery abyss, into the bright rays of the Holy Cross, so that we can say with the Gospel, “people who sat in darkness have seen a great light, And upon those who sat in the region and shadow of death Light has dawned.” (Matthew 4:16) It is that sublime purpose, to be an icon.

As icons, we fight the idols by creating beautiful art, art that teaches the Faith through wonder and majesty. Look to the Church, and you will see beautiful paintings and images of Crosses. Oh, how the devil’s hate such art, because they — with their immaculate imagery — instill in us a sense of Christian identity, and constantly remind us that we are in Christ, and are not to be dictated by the trends of this world. This is why the wicked and evil atheists and Muslims are always pushing for governments to censor any sort of Christian imagery and expression. They want us to be devoid of icons, to forget our hope, and to place our faith in idolatry of the self. I have heard people say that crosses, church bells, Christian paintings and statues, are idols.

But the hatred against the icons is the real idolatry. For to make a society devoid of Christian imagery, is to enable the enemy to replace the icons with true idols, with the worship of celebrities, of buildings, of politicians, of false prophets. Man, by his very nature, venerates. Take away the icons and he will venerate himself, he will venerate other men, he will venerate Mammon, he will venerate the devil. But restore the holy icons and you will see Christendom revive. The icons will be everywhere, and even the least religious person will see it and feel within himself a small measure of awe, enough to compel him to express his gratitude to the One Who died for Him. Embellish the earth with holy icons, and man will be reminded of what is sacred, man will come to contemplation, and with contemplation comes wonder and inspiration, and from this does the person know that he is but an icon himself, a window into Heaven, who is to shine so brightly that men will worship their Father in Heaven.

በሉሲፈራውያኑ ዘንድ ረመዳን የሽብር እና የግድያ ወር ነው | Gunmen Massacre Coptic Christians in Egypt, Killing at Least 26

Posted by addisethiopia on May 26, 2017

ክርስቲያን ወገኖቻችንን እየጨፈጨፏቸው ነው | በሉሲፈራውያኑ ዘንድ ረመዳን የሽብር እና የግድያ ወር ነው

On May 22, Satan murdered 22 kids, today, on May 26, it massacred 26 Children of The Lord Egziabher

Satan’s month of blood sacrifice (Ramadan) has begun. Yesterday, it was Manchester and the Philippines, Today Cairo, and tomorrow all over Africa, Europe and Asia. Take note: the father of the Manchester bomber, Salman Abedi is named Ramadan Abedi.

Was Satan Jealous of President Trump that He Didn’t Come to Pegamon and Bow Down Before His Altar?

President Trump is in Europe, after visiting the seat of Satan in Saudi Barbaria, and the former President Obama is trolling Mr. Trump by traveling to Berlin and taking the idea of a shadow government to a new level. Imagine the uproar if the then President Obama was followed by ex-President Bush to meet European leaders in Europe. Of course, Mr. Obama was there at the Brandenburg Gate, near the Pergamon Museum – where ‘Satan’s Altar’ is on display – and at the very same spot where he was ‘anointed’ to become the president of the US, back in 2008.

In these days, we Christians celebrate two of the nine great feasts of the Church: yesterday, The Feast of the Ascension of our Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ, and on Sunday, The Feast of Pentecost or Parakletos.

Satan – which is always not far away from Holy People, Holy Places and Holy Days – doesn’t like that – therefore it trolls Christians wherever they go — it wants blood.

Gunmen Ramadan -a Month of Death and Terror | Gunmen Massacre Coptic Christians in Egypt, Killing at Least 26

The fate of the Coptic Christians of Egypt should serve as a warning to all those of other faiths who live alongside Muslims!!!

THE VANISHING NILE

ENVIRONMENT

The Nile river and its fertile delta were long the source of Egypt’s wealth and greatness. Today, they face relentless assault from both land and sea. (Yale Environment 360)

Teachers, scroll down for a quick list of key resources, including today’s MapMaker Interactive map.

According to the Yale article, the Nile faces “relentless assault from both land and sea.” First, land:

What Terrestrial Features Threaten The Nile?

What Features Threaten The Nile From The Sea?

  • sea level rise. The Mediterranean Sea may swallow as much as a third of the Nile delta. This would be catastrophic for Egypt’s population and economy.
    • The lowering of land elevation in the Nile delta can be attributed to two phenomena. The first is seismic activity—earthquakes and other interactions between the African, Arabian, and Eurasian tectonic plates. The second is a lack of nutrient-rich flood sediments from the river. (Dams such as the Aswan Dam prevent the Nile from predictably overflowing its banks and depositing silt on the delta.)
    • Saltwater from the Mediterranean may jeopardize a third of freshwater volume in the Nile delta.

How Might Egypt Mitigate Threats To The Nile?

    • war. Egyptian leaders have warned that “all options are open”, but despite this incendiary rhetoric, few critics think a violent conflict with Ethiopia is likely.
    • diplomacy. Some experts think Egypt may be able to negotiate with Ethiopia to lengthen the time to fill the GERD reservoir. While benefitting Egypt, this would mean Ethiopians would have to wait for benefits (water, electricity) of the dam.
    • desalination. Many experts are advising Egypt to imitate its neighbor, Saudi Arabia, and invest in costly desalination plants on its Mediterranean and Red Sea coasts.
    • drip irrigation. Egypt will almost certainly have to invest in drip irrigation methods for agriculture. Drip irrigation conserves water by reducing runoff and evaporation.
    • family planning. Egypt’s water crisis is exacerbated by its “contraception crisis,” in which family planning medications are increasingly unavailable. A smaller population would put less stress on the Nile.

U.N. Survey: 3 Out of 4 Men and over Half of Women in Egypt Support FGM

Posted by addisethiopia on May 4, 2017

A new United Nations surveyof male attitudes toward “gender equality” finds precious little appetite for it across the Middle East.

Male attitudes towards the role of women in the workplace and at home, and of their participation in public life, were stereotypically sexist in the study of views in Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco and Palestine,” writes the UK Guardian in summarizing the report.

Egypt scored the lowest on the report’s “Gender Equitable Men” scale and is the source of the most striking headlines. For example, CNS News reports that “70 percent of Egyptian men approve of female genital mutilation.” For that matter, 56 percent of Egyptian women also voiced approval for the hideous procedure, which is illegal but not unheard-of, in much of the world.

Egyptian men also supplied 90 percent agreement with the statement that “a man should have the final word about decisions in the home,” and 58.5 percent of Egyptian women agreed. Only 31 percent of Egyptian men thought married women have the same rights to work outside their homes as men. 93 percent of men thought a husband should “know where his wife is at all times.” 96 percent thought a wife should agree to sex whenever her husband desires it.

53.4 percent said “there are times when a woman deserves to be beaten.” 90 percent agreed that “a woman should tolerate violence to keep the family together.” Roughly 45 percent of Egyptian men said they had been violent to their wives.

Only 25.7 percent of male Egyptian respondents said that women should “have the same freedom to access sites on the Internet as men.”

Egyptian women were significantly more supportive of women’s rights on most of these questions, although one point of agreement concerned women at work. While women were over twice as likely as men to say that women should have the right to work, they largely agreed that it was more important for men to work when jobs were scarce and that marriage was more important for women than a career.

Inability to find work was a major source of shame, anxiety, and depression for men.

The survey noted that younger men and women, especially younger women, were more likely to support gender equality. Of the regions surveyed, Egypt scored lowest on the Gender Equitable Men scale, while Lebanon scored the highest.

Morocco produced some alarming results about sexual harassment, with over half of men saying they have sexually harassed a woman, and over 60 percent of women reporting they have been harassed. A higher percentage of female Moroccans (78 percent) agreed that provocatively dressed women deserve harassment than men (72 percent).

The survey, which was conducted by UN Women and a non-profit organization called Promundo, involved 10,000 respondents in Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco, and the Palestinian territories.

Mohammad Naciri, regional director of Arab States UN Women, looked for optimistic signs in the report. “Amidst the stories of men’s violence against women, we found stories of men’s caregiving in the home. For every story of a man who compelled his daughter to marry against her will, there were stories of men who empowered their daughters,” he said.

The patriarchy works for the very small minority who are on the top of that pyramid,” lead researcher Shereen El Feki told the BBC. “For the rest down below, lots of women, but also from the results of the survey, many, many men, life is very tough.”

Promundo CEO Gary Barker told Reuters that “everywhere else we have done these research… young men typically have more progressive views that their fathers and the older generation. That was not so here.”

Selected Comments:

Hundreds of years of Islamic indoctrination and genetic damage due to inbreeding have produced an entire cultural group of halfwits. Low IQ is the norm in that group.

Let the Muslims do whatever they want to one another IN THEIR OWN LANDS. The West continues to live in a fantasy world if they think Islam can be modernized. Bringing this barbarity to the West is just another way for the Left and the Muslims to dismantle what’s left of our culture, traditions and religions.

They are not ready for civilization and likely never will be. They should just stay in their deserts.

Only the Muslim religion has legalized these barbaric practices using sharia law and only liberals in the western world support and defend their barbaric values.

Don’t care. That is Egypt’s problem

Christians Are Under Attack In The Middle East – And Not Even A Visit From The Pope Can Convince Them To Stay

Posted by addisethiopia on April 27, 2017

Egyptian Coptic Christians hold crosses and pray during a protest in Cairo

In the British mandate of Palestine, the Christian population was 9.6 per cent of the population. By 1999, it was 2.9 per cent. Meanwhile, 35 per cent of the Christians of the West Bank and Gaza left between 1967 and 1999

Almost exactly a quarter of a century ago, I wrote a story for the front page of what was then The Independent’s Weekend Review. It was headlined: “Exodus: a story of Christians”. It told the tragedy of those people of the faith who were fleeing the lands of the forefathers.

I interviewed the only hermit left in Lebanon, in a cave in the north of the country, and he said to me: “I am the only hermit left in all the Middle East.” His eyes creased in happiness when I acknowledged his unique theological condition. “I will never leave Lebanon,” he said. “No Christian should leave the Holy Land. Those who have left will come back.

He exuded faith: childlike, passionate, precise, untramelled by contradiction or facts. And he was wrong.

As I wrote at the time – from Iraq, from the West Bank, from Lebanon and from Egypt, “probably” (that was my word then) from Syria, too – the Christians were leaving. A community of 14 million people, the inheritors of the original, eastern church of Christ, were draining away from lands now inhabited by up to 160 million Muslims.

Today, the Copts of Egypt alone may be as many as 15 million, but they make up only 10 per cent of the population. Under attack from Islamists, they are leaving for the West in huge numbers – which is one reason the Pope lands in Egypt on Thursday in the hope (a plaintiff one, I fear) that Christians and Muslims can take violence out of religion. We pretend to care very much for these Christians, of course. (Indeed, we care so much that even the new American President, Donald Trump, was too frightened to call the 1915 slaughter of one and a half million Armenian Christians a genocide this week.)

I was much moved some two years ago, in the little Syrian town of Qamishleh, by the local priests and bishops of the Maronite (Catholic), Armenian and Orthodox churches who pleaded with me to stop suggesting that the Christians should seek sanctuary in the West. If they went to Canada or America or Europe, they said, they will become part of a secular world in which they would lose their faith. This should not be the fate of the Christians of the Middle East.

But, after 44 Christian Copts were killed in two church bombings in Egypt this month, can they stay? When Christian Copts are murdered in Sinai, can they stay? When Isis in Iraq tells them to convert or die, can they stay?

By 1999, only 10 per cent of the people of Jerusalem were Christian. Just 30 per cent of Nazareth’s population of 172,000 were Christian.

In the British mandate of Palestine, the Christian population was 9.6 per cent of the population. By 1999, it was 2.9 per cent. Meanwhile, 35 per cent of the Christians of the West Bank and Gaza left between 1967 and 1999. And Christianity is supposed to be one of the world’s great religions.

Pope Francis makes surprise appearance at TED Talk

She would not accept this. “And we were defeated later by different people and with different tools,” she replied. “I’m not the person who would say ‘Oh we should overcome this’. I think people do have their differences. And it’s important to look and analyse and try to see why people have their differences and how they can run these differences through time and in different situations. But I think that both sides are responsible for this.”

What will the Pope say that? Or to the Grand Imam of Al Azhar in Cairo, Sheikh Ahmad al-Tayeb? Will they be up to the task of self-incrimination?

Source

My Note: ISLAM + PROTESTANTISM + SECULARISM = PAGANISM is at war against ORTHODOX CHRISTIANITY. We shall know whether CATHOLICS had joined them during the Pope’s visit to Egypt. Not as a Pope, but just as a Christian, will he be able to call the demon-possessed followers of Mohammad for what they are, and invite them into The House of The Lord to be saved? Instead of sugarcoating the Muslim persecutors with the usual boaring message, like “reconciliation with all the children of Abraham“, will he simply able to warn them to stop persecuting children of The Lord Jesus Christ?

The above article supports my thoughts expressed a couple of days ago:

I believe it’s is irresponsible, biased and dangerous that a protestant organization like OpenDoors“ placed Christian Ethiopia at number 22 on the World Watch List of Christian persecution – mind you, higher than notorious Christian persecutor states like Turkey, Palestinian Territories, Algeria, Kuwait, UAE, Indonesia, Bangladesh etc. Either they are ignorant and wicked or they have joined the luciferian forces to wage war against Orthodox Christians. It must be tempting for Satan to challenge the first Christian nation!

How primitive and boaring it has become that OpenDoors always puts North Korea (a Buddhist nation that doesn’t belong to Christians) at number 1 to appease the number one persecutors of Christians: Islamic countries. where Christians are indigenous.

Ancient Sinai Monastery Targeted By Islamic Militants In Egypt A Week After Coptic Church Bombings

Posted by addisethiopia on April 19, 2017

Islamist gunmen attacked security forces near St Catherine’s Monastery in Egypt’s south Sinai yesterday, killing at least one police officer and injuring four others outside one of the world’s most important and oldest Christian sites.

Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack on a police checkpoint about 800 metres from the entrance to the monastery, which comes just 10 days before Pope Francis is scheduled to visit Egypt.

The incident follows two deadly suicide bombings on Coptic Christian churches last week, which were also claimed by Islamic State and which plunged the country into mourning and marked one of the bloodiest days for the country’s Christian minority in decades.

St Catherine’s, founded in the 6th century and located at the foot of Mount Sinai, is one of the oldest Christian monasteries in the world and a UNESCO world heritage site. It is part of the Eastern Orthodox Church.

Egypt’s Christian minority, which makes up about 10 per cent of the country’s 92 million people, has increasingly been targeted by Islamist militants, with three deadly church attacks in the span of four months.

In February, scores of Christian families and students fled North Sinai province after a spate of targeted killings.

A successful assault on St Catherine’s would be the latest challenge to President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, who has pledged to protect the religious minority as part of his campaign against extremism.

El-Sisi Coming to America | Arab Leaders Line Up To Talk To Trump | Beware of The Snakes, Mr. President!

Posted by addisethiopia on April 3, 2017

Following last month’s visits to Washington by Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Al-Abadi, Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi is in Washington, and Jordan’s King Abdallah is set to follow suit in the coming days to hold official meetings with US President Donald Trump separately at the White House.

These folks who flock to Washington are not Sheeps, rather Goats and Snakes. The God of Abraham, Isaac & Jacob is not on their side. They know it. Egypt is in a panic mode over THE NILE – and it will play the terrorism card to deceive The Donald. Please don’t let them in, President Trump!

Egypt & Sudan: They Drink Ethiopian Water + Eat Her Soil For Free, For Ages, Yet, They Declared War Against Our Christian Brothers and Sisters of Zion

Ezekiel29

Major Egyptian Christian Bishop Declares ‘We Christians Have Done All We Can To Forgive Our Persecutors But The Muslims Keep Butchering Us And Nobody Cares’

Bishop Anba Angaelos is episcopal head of the Coptic Church for the United Kingdom. In a scathing analysis of the situation in Egypt, he said that Christianity was being wiped out and that Christians have done all they can do to forgive their persecutors, but unless something is done they will be massacred at the hands of the Muslims:

At least 40 Coptic Christians have been killed in “targeted attacks” in Egypt over the last three months and many are being warned they must “leave or die,” a prominent Coptic bishop has said.

Coptic Bishop Anba Angaelos, the general bishop of the Coptic Orthodox Church in the United Kingdom, issued a statement Tuesday decrying the escalating violence the Christian community in Egypt has faced over the last several weeks.

As The Christian Post has reported, there has been an ongoing series of murders of Christians and deliberate attacks on the Coptic community in recent weeks, some of which Islamic State militants in the Sinai Peninsula are believed to be responsible for.

Angaelos has said the number of Christians who’ve been murdered in recent attacks on the Coptic community is now up to 40 in just the last three months.

I have now drafted and redrafted this statement numerous times over the past weeks, wanting to say something about the deadly attacks experienced by Coptic Christians in Egypt on a daily basis. Yet every time I do, there seems to be a new and often more horrifying attack that needs to be addressed,” Angaelos wrote in a statement shared with CP. “In the past three months alone 40 Coptic Christians have been murdered in targeted attacks in Egypt.”

From the [Dec. 11] terrorist bombing on St. Peter’s Coptic Church in Cairo that claimed the lives of 29 mainly women and children, to the murders of individuals across the country since, the one common denominator is that these innocent children, women and men have had their lives brutally and tragically ended for no other reason except that they are Christians,” Angaelos said.

Incitement by terrorist groups that call for the killing of Christians in Egypt has spiralled over the past weeks to the extent that lists of churches and individuals have now been released as desirable targets,” Angaelos explained. “While persecution is nothing new for the Coptic community, this escalation of attacks over the past months, culminating in the most recent murders of seven Christians in Al-Arish, has resulted in the displacement of hundreds forced to leave their generations-old homes in North Sinai.”

These horrific attacks have gone largely unnoticed by the international community, but Copts continue to suffer tragic violations daily,” Angaelos added.

Angaelos asserted that crimes against Christians are “religiously motivated.” He points out that in many cases, extremists have circulated flyers in villages that tell Christians to “leave or die.”

Similar events have tragically occurred far too often over the past years, and there is unfortunately little deterrent to prevent them from reoccurring,” Angaelos added.

In our fast moving world that is filled with so much news of tragedy, war and death, it is all too easy for atrocities to become ‘incidents,’ and for individuals suffering them to become mere statistics, very quickly pushed aside by the next item of news,” he continued. “In the eyes of the perpetrators they are a viable target, and in the eyes of the world they become a regrettable phenomenon; yet what is actually left behind is traumatized individuals, families and communities that have lost loved ones, living the reality of themselves being targeted.”

Angaelos further emphasized that even though Copts in Egypt have faced persecution and atrocities, they have done their part to remain peaceful and forgive their persecutors.

After the destruction of over 100 places of Christian ministry and worship in August of 2013, the bombing of various churches across the country in the last decade, and the targeted killing of clergy, families, women and children, purely for their faith, the community and individuals within it remain non-violent and resilient,” he stressed. “Despite there being condemnation of these attacks by national government and authorities, there is yet to be a consistent robust and fair implementation of these same sentiments more regionally and locally.”(source)

The Bishop’s insightful comments align with our experience here at Shoebat.com through the Rescue Christians project. While it is good and ideal to try to keep Christians in their native lands, the reality is that these people do not have anything left for them in their native areas. Their homes have been destroyed and along with that the communities, economies, and social networks that make up any human society. Left without any means of sustenance and only able to rebuild based on what foreign money comes to them through donations in combination with the facts that they are isolated as minorities in a hostile Muslim-majority area and the peoples have been thoroughly demoralized and crippled by fear from the attacks, they are completely vulnerable and will be massacred as soon as a Muslim individual, group, or government decides to kill them for any reason.

As the Bishop has said, the Christians of Egypt and really, much of the Muslim world have faithfully done their part and more for keeping peace and trying to build a healthy relationship with their Muslim neighbors in spite of differences and have continued to do it even while they are being abused, cheated, tortured, and murdered. However, like the saying goes, “it takes two to tango”- the Christians can do anything and have all the hope in the world, but unless the Muslims are willing to do their part and reciprocate then nothing further can be done.

The decision that has been made by these Muslims and their governments is clear. Either they are unable to or they are unwilling to put forth a good faith effort to help the Christian peoples of their lands. Whatever the reason, the inaction of the Muslims to uphold their social responsibilities as human beings towards their fellow man is not an excuse for inaction and as we at Shoebat.com noted from our experiences, it is not the time to give the impression of offering help as a political cover for doing nothing. These people are the actual refugees who need to be relocated to the West and other areas because if they are not helped, they will die.

Christianity has survived for 14 centuries in Egypt, and while I do not want to simply “give up,” the fact is also that the welfare of these people come first. Buildings can be rebuilt, economies can be recreated, civilizations can be restored, even if it is a long and difficult process. However, lives cannot be restored once lost.

At the same time, this incident, while sad, is another reminder to Christians that in the struggle with Islam, Christians cannot simply “submit” to Islam because that is simply buying time before your inevitable death and destruction. Christianity has always been at war- a war against all evil for the salvation of the souls of men. In a war, there is no “middle ground”- there is a winner and a loser.

Christ has won the final battle through the cross, but the war for the souls of men will rage until the second coming. That said, it is why Christians must not only be prepared to suffer persecution and help the persecuted, but also to wage active war- spiritual and physical- against the wicked to seek to pervert and destroy God’s people. Just as the Christians of Egypt noted that they can do all they are able to but unless the Muslims are willing to reciprocate, nothing can happen, likewise the Christians can do all they can to be peaceful and avoid physical war with Islam and Muslims, but the fact is that such is as only as good as Muslims are willing to honor it, which they will only do so in as much as it is to their advantage before turning to physical war.

Prepare yourself accordingly, soul, mind and body, for as Islam rises in the West and Christianity becomes a hated religion more than it is already, the horrors of the old world will come full circle. Christians will have much to suffer for the sake of Christ, but they will also have to rise up and meet and defeat the Muslims in physical combat just as the Christians of old did for centuries.

Sudan Has ‘Declared War Against Christians’ To Stop Them From Leading Muslims To Christ, Says Pastor

The Sudanese government has not officially announced it. However, a pastor who was once wrongfully imprisoned in the country has revealed that Khartoum has virtually “declared war against Christians.”

This is the reason why pastors are being locked up in jail and churches demolished in the Muslim-majority East African nation, according to the persecution watchdog group International Christian Concern (ICC).

On behalf of The Christian Post, the ICC’s East Africa team interviewed Pastor Michael Yat, one of the pastors who have suffered imprisonment in Sudan for their faith.

Yat told the ICC team that when he travelled to Khartoum to take up a new assignment with the South Sudan Evangelical Presbyterian Church in 2014, “little did I know that Sudan had declared war against Christians.”

Thus, on the second day he preached at a church in Khartoum, Yat was arrested and thrown in jail, where he was held for nine months.

Yat explained the reason why the Sudanese government hated Christians, especially those who can speak Arabic. He said it’s because the regime of President Omar al-Bashir is fearful that Christians “can easily reach out to the Muslims and win them to Christ.”

A number of pastors are still languishing in Sudanese prisons reportedly on trumped-up national security charges. One of them, the Rev. Hassan Abduraheem, is the subject of a global release petition made by The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ). Abduraheem has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for his faith.

Sudanese authorities also continue to harass Christian church congregants and threaten foreign Christians with expulsion, ICC said.

Selected Comment:

The lying snakes of Islam and their western enablers and apologists cry the blues when a Muslim over here gets a dirty look, or a piece of bacon put on a doorknob. They run to the media with fake “Islamophobia” and Hijab hoaxes, and claim how the Muslim community lives in “fear” from Donald Trump supporters, or they are made uncomfortable on a campus.

Boo effing hoo. You are all liars. Every day around and throughout the Islamic world this crap goes on as a matter of rule, not exception. The same Islam that creates this in Egypt and Pakistan is the same Islam found in every western Mosque. We are now seeing the effects of mass Muslim immigration to Europe and what really happens when their numbers increase beyond a small little minority. This is why the Islamic world declined from about A.D. 1100. The Golden Age is a myth. Anything that occurred during this time was in spite of Islam, not because of it. Like the suffocating Burka that restricts the free expression and movement of Muslim women, Islam itself does this to the mind. Keeping out the rays of light of knowledge beyond the Koran and Hadith.

The Muslim world has created nothing that contributes to the advancement of civilization. It is a destroyer of culture, language, free expression, thought and speech, free enquiry, reason and logic. Everything is to be subordinated to Islam. Is it any wonder that it has found an enabler in Leftism? Just as the socialist regimes of fascism and communism prohibit with extreme prejudice anything that threatens it from within, the same can be found in Islam’s Koran and Hadith. Islam has been kept alive through threats and violence; actual or implied. The draconian punishment of death for apostasy, blasphemy or insulting the prophet of Islam has cowed its followers into submission since its early beginnings. Just as surely as any dictator of the 20th century.

Egypt Accused of ‘Dirty Deal’ to Sabotage an Ethiopian Dam Project

Posted by addisethiopia on February 6, 2017

This morning’s key headlines from GenerationalDynamics.com

  • Egypt’s air force accused of bombing rebel targets in South Sudan
  • Egypt accused of ‘dirty deal’ to sabotage an Ethiopian dam project

Anti-government rebels in South Sudan are accusing Egypt of conducting bombing raids on rebel targets. A statement published by the rebels accuses South Sudan’s president Salva Kiir of risking a regional war.

South Sudan is the world’s youngest nation, having gained independence from Sudan in 2011. The region’s last generational crisis war was an ethnic war mainly between two tribes, the Nuer and the Dinka. That war climaxed with the “Bor Massacre,” which began on November 15, 1991, killing tens of thousands of people and displacing hundreds of thousands of people over a three month period.

A new conflict began on December 15, 2013, led by the president Salva Kiir, of the Dinka tribe, fighting against forces led by vice president Riek Machar, of the Nuer tribe. Kiir and Machar signed a peace agreement in August 2015, but that did little good.

South Sudan is in a generational Awakening era, and this renewed war between the Dinkas and the Nuer would have fizzled out, except that both sides have been importing weapons, often using funds meant to fight poverty. The situation in South Sudan is similar to the war in Syria, which would have fizzled out long ago if it weren’t for massive military aid from Russia, Hezbollah and Iran.

The rebels are accusing Egypt of replicating the situation in Sudan by playing the part that Russia is playing in Syria, and bombing rebel targets on behalf of the government.

Egypt accused of ‘dirty deal’ to sabotage an Ethiopian dam project

The statement by anti-government rebels accusing Egypt of bombing rebel targets in South Sudan says that Egypt and South Sudan are in a “dirty deal” between Egypt’s president Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and South Sudan’s president Salva Kiir, and that the deal involves involving weapons sales and sabotage of an Ethiopian dam project:

There is a dirty deal going between Kiir and El-Sisi. the issue of Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam is one of the main deals being finalized in Cairo. Our intelligence sources in Kampala and Juba confirmed that Egypt wants South Sudan and Uganda to be her regional allies so that she can advance its covert sabotage campaign against the Ethiopian Dam. The man [Kiir] is a double agent; he will cause many problems for the entire East Africa region.

The statement refers to a Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) project that Ethiopia has been trying to get built for years. Ethiopians see as is a great national project and a means of overcoming poverty.

There is considerable opposition to the dam project in Egypt because it would affect the flow of water along the Nile river. Egypt depends on the Nile river to supply most of Egypt’s drinking war, to irrigate the Nile Delta, and to generate half of the country’s electricity through the operation of Egypt’s Aswan High Dam.

Egypt’s long-time dictator Hosni Mubarak was able to block development of the Ethiopian dam, but after the “Arab Awakening” in 2011, and the coup that overthrew him, Ethiopia began building the dam. It’s expected to be completed in July. Egypt and Ethiopia have signed an agreement saying that Ethiopia guarantees that Egypt’s water supply will not be affected, but that hasn’t fully reassured many Egyptians.

The South Sudan rebel statement, if true, would indicate that Egypt’s al-Sisi and South Sudan’s Kiir covertly sabotaging the dam in a “dirty deal” that will keep Kiir in power. Egypt Independent and Al-Ahram (Cairo) and Sudan Tribune

South Sudanese Irrigation Ministry Official: Ethiopia Made A Mistake To Build Dam Without Permission From Egypt

2017 Forecast: Africa

Summary

AfricaClimateThe Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC, hereafter also referred to simply as the Congo) could once again serve as a catalyst for a wider regional conflict and another “African World War”, while the Arab states of North Africa have a chance to move closer to the emerging Multipolar World Order in Afro-Eurasia.

Congo’s Collapse

The DRC is on the verge of yet another period of civil war, this time brought about by President Kabila’s postponement of national elections and refusal to step down during the interim. The author forecast this exact scenario over half a year ago for The Duran in an article titled “China vs. the US: The Struggle for Central Africa and the Congo”, in which the real reason behind the turmoil poised to take over one of Africa’s largest countries was revealed. Rather than being what the Mainstream Media is trying to project as yet another stereotypical African crisis of a “dictator refusing to give up power”, the truth is that the emerging conflict is actually about a larger proxy struggle between the US and China for control of the world’s largest coltan and cobalt deposits – minerals which are an irreplaceable part of modern electronics and communication devices. As the aforementioned article proves, the country with the greatest degree of access to these reserves will acquire a strategic advantage in the future world economy, which is why the US is contemplating the use of Hybrid War to destructively dislodge China and its affiliated companies from this industry so that they can be later replaced by Western firms.

The Chaos Belt

Should an incipient Hybrid War be unleashed in the Congo, it’ll affect much more than just that country’s inhabitants. The DRC is crucially located in the heartland of the African continent, and has already twice in the past served as the trigger for sparking larger regional crises. The First and Second Congo Wars grew to involve a multitude of African states, with the latter one even earning the moniker of “Africa’s World War” because of the broad geographic scope of its participants. Ignominiously, it also boasts the title of being the bloodiest war since World War II, and an estimated five million people died from its direct or indirect results since it first broke out in the late-1990s. Considering how there’s already an obviously documented track record of the Congo turning into a deadly black hole of regional and continental chaos, there’s a disturbing chance that it could once more function in this frightful role if it’s again thrown into turmoil per the abovementioned forecast.

Speaking of which, the author’s Duran article also spells out the most likely scenario forecasts for what can predictably happen in the event that the Congo slips back into chaos. All predictions in one way or another return to the common denominator of regional conflict, seeing as how the country’s borders are already extraordinarily porous and a myriad of armed groups traverse its northeastern peripheral territory. As is explained and cited in the article, South Sudanese, Ugandan, and Rwandan “rebel” groups (referred as terrorists by some actors) run wild in this loosely governed corner of the country, and there’s nothing preventing militias from the failed state of the Central African Republic from crossing over the Congo’s northern frontier either. The author paid more attention to these scenarios in a text submitted to a conference about “The Threats Of Terrorism In Africa: Internal And External Aspects”, which was hosted by the Institute of African Studies at the Russian Academy of Sciences in November 2016. The English translation should be published at Katehon sometime early next year, but the Russian version is accessible at this link.

The analysis lays out the ease at which a Color Revolution crisis in the Congo could trigger a wider regional war, focusing on how the non-state actors in the northeastern DRC have a history of exploiting Kinshasa’s weaknesses and launching cross-border attacks against its neighbors, which consequently invites reciprocal measures from the victimized governments and fuels the rapidly accelerating conflict cycle. If just one of the three bordering states in this region – South Sudan, Uganda, and/or Rwanda – intervenes in the Congo during these tumultuous times, then it could encourage the others to do so as well in decisively finishing off their non-state foes and preemptively safeguarding their own sovereignty. What’s most dangerous about this possibility is that, as history shows, the intervening countries in the Congo don’t stop once their immediate and publicly presented objectives have been completed and instead transform their unilateral mandate into one of regime change.

South Sudan and the Central African Republic are much too weak to do this, but Uganda and Rwanda are a whole different set of countries entirely which have already done this on one occasion. Should the Congo erupt in violence and trigger a larger regional war, it’s very likely then that the transoceanic stretch of African states stretching from the Atlantic to the Indian Ocean could get involved to varying extents and thus transform the bicoastal region into a chaotic belt of conflict. Each of the DRC’s neighbors have their own destabilization vulnerabilities, and in the case of the Republic of the Congo and Angola, both have experienced sporadic Color Revolution strife which could be emboldened by a host of new situational factors (refugees, cross-border fighters, etc.) emanating from a collapsing Congo. Zambia and Tanzania, typically much more stable than the rest of the DRC’s neighbors, could also be sucked into the vortex of violence too.

The author explored the specifics of each and every one of these possibilities in his Oriental Review series about Africa’s Hybrid War risks, and while the progressively published series has yet to be released in its full entirety, the reader should certainly reference it going forward if they’re interested in more details about the interconnected conflict potential in the continent.

North Africa: European Threat Or Eurasian Opportunity?

The last main trend to explore in Africa is the uncertain geopolitical future of its northern Arab shoreline. This part of the continent is historically and demographically distinct from rest of its sub-Saharan parts, and is geographically endowed with a greater potential for interacting with Eurasia. As was explained in the first section about the EU, there’s reason to believe that the situation in this part of Africa might deteriorate in the future and thus create countless challenges for Europe. On the other hand, however, the reverse might actually happen, and Algeria for example might undergo a smooth leadership transition just like Uzbekistan did while Daesh in Libya might finally be defeated. Furthermore, Egypt could continue along the trajectory of its present pro-Russian tilt and thus draw more of the region into the Eurasian multipolar orbit.

Should that happen, then Egypt could interestingly complement its Horn of Africa Ethiopian rival by being a Russian-friendly multipolar counterpart to the Chinese-friendly ancient civilization to its south. Egypt and Ethiopia aren’t expected to smooth over their differences over the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam anytime soon (no matter what public statements might be issued to the contrary from time to time for convenient diplomatic purposes), but their competition with one another over water rights and broader leadership issues could be stabilized through the discrete involvement of Russia and China’s mediating influence over their main respective African partners. If Moscow and Beijing can help keep the peace between these two multipolar states and neither of them capitulates to the US’ Hybrid Wars against them, then the “Afro-Eurasian Blueprint From A Multipolar World Order” can be significantly strengthened and expanded through the incorporation of North and East Africa’s largest, most powerful, and geographically convenient states.

Of course, this optimistic scenario largely hinges on the situation in each anchor state’s regional neighborhood, as the continuance of civil war in Libya and the spread of Daesh could augur quite negatively for Egypt’s future prospects, as could an intensification of the Qatari-backed Muslim Brotherhood terrorist insurgency against Cairo. Likewise, the unrest in Ethiopia among the Oromo and Amhara communities against the central government could return to being a major force for destabilization after the six-month state of emergency ends, and there’s no doubt that the US will continue to work with the hyper-nationalist diaspora to stoke a conflict aimed at collaterally damaging China’s ultra-crucial New Silk Road through the country.

Further afield, there’s of course the uncertainty posed by the looming departure of Algerian President Bouteflika from the political scene in North Africa, just as there’s the very real risk of a second round of civil war breaking out in South Sudan and spilling over the border to encourage a similar process in Ethiopia.

That being said, if Russia and China can manage to transform Egypt and Ethiopia into their respective continental anchors, maintain the cold peace between both rivals, and assist their partners in counteracting the regional Hybrid War threats against them, then there’s a strong likelihood that these two states could become the lynchpins of multipolarity in Africa and thus complement the emerging world order that Moscow and Beijing are jointly constructing all across the Eastern Hemisphere.
