Libya’s Slave Auctions And African Genocide: What Hillary Knew

Posted by addisethiopia on November 16, 2017

A new CNN investigation has uncovered a network of slave markets operating in warehouses in various cities across Libya six years after NATO-led intervention in the country toppled the government of Muammar Gaddafi in support of US and UK backed rebels. And not only did CNN confirm the presence of slave auctions where human beings are being sold for as little as $400 in “liberated” Libya, but CNN’s crew was actually able to film a live auction in progress, while also gathering the testimonies of multiple victims.

Though CNN’s footage and accompanying report is shocking, such practices have been quietly documented for years, and clear warnings were issued starting in early 2011 that Libya’s black as well as migrant population would be the first to fall victim at the hands of the Islamist Libyan rebels that NATO’s war empowered. From the outset critics of Western intervention in Libya loudly sounded the alarm of a genocide against black Libyans in progress committed by the very rebels the US, UK, France, and Gulf allies were arming – a fact so well-known that then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was personally briefed and warned on the matter.

The Dangerous Myth of Gaddafi’s “African Mercenaries”

Among the foremost of these early critics at the time, Maximilian Forte, Associate Professor at Montreal’s Concordia University, published a 2012 book which exhaustively documented racially motivated crimes which came early and often during the armed uprising. His book, Slouching Towards Sirte: NATO’s War on Libya and Africa, contains essential summary context laying out the role that international media played in 2011 and after, including CNN itself, in fueling the xenophobic campaign to scapegoat Libya’s over one million strong black population as “pro-Gaddafi mercenaries”.

According to Professor Forte:

Racial fear and xenophobia were at the very crux of the first public calls for Western military intervention, and were the basis for the first utterance of the need for a “no-fly zone” … The myth of the “African mercenary” was useful for the Libyan opposition, the NTC [National Transitional Council] and the militias, to insist that this was a war between “Gaddafi and the Libyan people,” as if he had no domestic support at all…

As Patrick Cockburn explained, the insurgents’ “explanation for the large pro-Gaddafi forces was that they were all mercenaries, mostly from black Africa, whose only motive was money.”

Gaddafi’s ‘pan-Africanist’ policies such as aggressive support for the creation of the African Union (in 2002), and a relatively open immigration policy allowing for the influx of sub-Saharan African migrants to work on Gaddafi’s massive building projects, stirred resentment and discontent within broader Arab Libyan society in the decade leading up to the 2011 war. This was the historical background which set the stage for the anti-Gaddafi rebels’ extraordinary claim that sub-Saharan “foreign mercenaries” were being used en masse by Gaddafi to target protesters (later proven false).

And these historic ethnic and racial dynamics were well understood by the US government long before official support to Libyan militant groups began – militants which were not only shown to have al-Qaeda links, but which declared “open season” on all black Libyans and migrant workers during the revolution. As the CIA’s own historical analysis of Libya’s internal dynamics spells out:

QADHAFI in 1998 adopted a decade-long pan-African policy that enabled large numbers of sub-Saharan migrants to enter Libya without visas to work in the construction and agricultural industries. Although sub-Saharan Africans provided a cheap labor source, they were poorly treated and were subjected to periodic mass expulsions. By the mid-2000s, domestic animosity toward African migrants

Similar to later developments in Syria, the media would uncritically echo whatever the “freedom fighting” rebels would feed it, thus this black foreign mercenary trope became an unquestioned reality spread from rebel propagandists to the Western public. Libyan opposition members even began claiming to be victims of wild attacks by roving bands of machete-wielding pro-Gaddafi blacks wearing tell-tale yellow hard hats – a symbol which also falsely began to be associated with “Gaddafi’s savage mercenaries” – resulting in subsequent mass arrests and executions of innocent black migrant construction workers.

CNN Spread the “Black Mercenary” Lie

The end result would of course be the widespread targeting and scapegoating of an entire ethnic population within Libya. This is demonstrated, for example, in the most well-known example of Tawergha, an entire town of 30,000 black and “dark-skinned” Libyans which vanished by August 2011 after its takeover by NATO-backed NTC Misratan brigades.

But it is important to remember that CNN itself at the time regularly promoted the false “black mercenary” narrative which helped fuel and excuse such atrocities, even though it is now much belatedly investigating and decrying Libya’s current migrant slave auctions, while leaving out the essential context which enabled such horrors in the first place. For example, the following February 2011 CNN reporting relied on unnamed opposition sources during the earliest days of the conflict to say:

Residents said hundreds of mercenaries from sub-Saharan Africa had been killed or captured while fighting for Gadhafi, but much of the army appears to have gone over to anti-government forces.

And a separate CNN article from the same month – though acknowledging that no CNN journalists were even inside the country – still uncritically reported:

Clashes broke out between a large crowd of demonstrators and people who appeared to be African mercenaries in the center of the city, according to an activist.

Yet another broadcast segment from February 2011 – the clip of which appears to have since been deleted from CNN’s site (but which is available on YouTube), asks the question: in Libya “just who is doing the dirty work?” – while answering that Gaddafi imported Chadian and Sudanese mercenaries to crack down on civilian protesters.

And those few examples are but a tiny sampling of CNN’s consistent spreading the dangerous myth throughout the early stages of the conflict – to say nothing of how ubiquitous the false rebel claims became among mainstream media generally.

US-backed Rebels and Ethnic Genocide

One of the few international correspondents to actually report the truth in real time while writing from inside Libya was The Independent’s (UK) Patrick Cockburn. In an August 2011 story he wrote as if attempting to warn the world about the future war crimes to come at the hands of the US-backed rebels:

The rotting bodies of 30 men, almost all black and many handcuffed, slaughtered as they lay on stretchers and even in an ambulance in central Tripoli, are an ominous foretaste of what might be Libya’s future. The incoming regime makes pious statements about taking no revenge on pro-Gaddafi forces, but this stops short of protecting those who can be labelled mercenaries. Any Libyan with a black skin accused of fighting for the old regime may have a poor chance of survival.

Subsequent stories of widespread torture and executions of black Libyans included a 2012 report in UK media which involved anti-Gaddafi “revolutionaries” filming themselves torturing black prisoners, making them eat the former Libyan national flag.

If reporters like Cockburn and even prominent human rights organizations (see Human Rights Watch, September 2011, Libya: Stop Arbitrary Arrests of Black Africans) understood what was happening months prior to height of NATO’s military campaign in support of the rebels, which ended in the brutal torture and field execution of Gaddafi, then what did one of the prime US architects of the war, then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton know and when did she know it?

What Hillary Knew

The answer lies in a March 27, 2011, intelligence brief on Libya published by WikiLeaks. The brief, which was made public in 2015 as part of a large batch of Hillary emails released by the State Department, was sent by long time close adviser to the Clinton family and Hillary’s personal intelligence gatherer, Sidney Blumenthal, and contains clear reference to rebels summarily executing “all foreign mercenaries” – which had already become the common euphemism for black Libyans then being targeted by the US-supported rebels.

Citing a rebel commander source “speaking in strict confidence” Blumenthal reports to Hillary:

Under attack from allied Air and Naval forces, the Libyan Army troops have begun to desert to the rebel side in increasing numbers. The rebels are making an effort to greet these troops as fellow Libyans, in an effort to encourage additional defections.

Source Comment: Speaking in strict confidence, one rebel commander stated that his troops continue to summarily execute all foreign mercenaries captured in the fighting…

Hillary Emails show UK, French, Egyptian special forces were secretly in Libya providing arms to “protestors” https://t.co/SyRhaYeLGI

WikiLeaks (@wikileaks) March 25, 2016

And further interesting is that the line immediately following the acknowledgement of war crimes against “foreign mercenaries” indicates that a long time CIA supported Libyan exile was then taking command of the very militants committing those summary executions.

The email continues:

At the same time Colonel Khalifa Haftar has reportedly joined the rebel command structure, in an effort to help organization the rebel forces.

Khalifa Haftar has since 2011 become a mainstay in Libya’s post-Gaddafi chaos, heading up one of the three to four governments (at any given time) claiming authority in the war-torn country. Haftar has been widely acknowledged as the “CIA’s man” during his two decade long exile in the US, as a BBC profile explained: “His proximity to the CIA’s headquarters in Langley hinted at a close relationship with US intelligence services, who gave their backing to several attempts to assassinate Gaddafi.”

CIA’s Khalifa Haftar and Mass Executions

Meanwhile, Haftar is currently being eyed by international prosecutors for continuing to commit war crimes in Libya. One month ago The Guardian reported, “Ex-CIA asset Khalifa Haftar, due to meet Italian officials in Rome, ordered soldiers to kill prisoners, according to legal experts.” The Guardian cites video evidence which proves he continues to be “complicit in calling for extrajudicial killings.”

And yesterday Al Jazeera reported that a formal suit has been filed against Haftar at the International Criminal Court (ICC) for “carrying out mass executions and torture.” Another recent Guardian report which details torture and rape being carried out against prisoners held under Haftar’s militia alliance, includes the following eyewitness account of the torture of African migrant detainees:

There was a black man, a migrant. In the evening, they threw him into one of our cells: ‘You rape this guy, otherwise, you’re dead!’”

Then Secretary of State Clinton understood in early 2011 what was happening concerning the rebel genocidal targeting of black Libyans and African migrants, yet pushed to arm the rebels and overthrow Gaddafi anyway. She was given the intelligence brief which gave evidence this was happening on March 27, 2011. But even without such a classified intelligence report personally delivered to her, such war crimes were so well known that a full month prior on February 28, 2011, Al Jazeera could publish the following story entitled, African Migrants Targetted in Libya:

As nations evacuate their citizens from the violence gripping Libya, many African migrant workers are targeted because they are suspected of being mercenaries hired by Muammar Gaddafi, the Libyan leader.

Dozens of workers from sub-Saharan Africa are feared killed, and hundreds are in hiding, as angry mobs of anti-government protesters hunt down “black African mercenaries,” according to witnesses.

“No Regrets”

But even years later, as such race-based war crimes have now been exhaustively documented, Hillary has consistently indicated that she has no regrets. Though her beloved Libyan rebels, legitimized and empowered through broad support from the West, were literally killing people based on the color of their skin, not a single one has ever been convicted in a court of law or punished for their crimes.

Moreover, Hillary has never so much as hinted at the problem, though her public stature would allow her a world-wide platform to speak against atrocities at any time, possibly preventing further crimes. Instead, she has simply chosen to conclude her role in the tragic story of Libya with her crazed and gleeful declaration of “we came, we saw, he died.”

My Note: Another perfect example of the Esau & Ishmael alliance for the endless African and Christian genocide. They will all burn in hell! Shame on those Africans who, in any manner, collaborate with these demonic evils!

Eritrean Refugee: “It’s Better to Die in the Sea Than to Stay in Libya”

Posted by addisethiopia on July 10, 2017

Migrants Are Being Sold At Open Slave Markets In Libya

  • It is better to die than stay in Libya:’ Libya’s Slave Markets Remind Us of Flaws in EU Migration Plans
  • Migrants from West Africa are being openly traded in “public slave markets” across Libya.

I was horrified when I read the International Organization for Migration (IOM) report last week on sub-Saharan Africans being sold and bought in open markets in Libya—but I was not surprised.

During a recent visit to Italy, I spoke with dozens of men and women from East and West Africa who recently arrived in Sicily from Libya. They recounted extreme acts of cruelty at the hands of human smugglers, members of the Libyan coastguard, state-run detention center workers and locals.

I was sold twice,” a young man from Guinea told me on the tiny island of Lampedusa, just days after he arrived by boat from Libya. “I was sold to an Arab man who forced me to work and told me to call my family so they would send money. He sold me to another Arab man who forced me to work for him, too.” The young man was only able to leave once his family sent enough money to free him.

Read more: African migrants smuggled into Libya are being sold at ‘modern-day slave markets’

The slave trade affects women, too. A young woman from Nigeria told me: “As a female, you can’t walk alone in the street. Even if they don’t shoot you, [if] you’re black, they’ll just take you and sell you.” One man, also from Guinea, said that women are more expensive to buy than men.

Women also face shocking levels of sexual abuse. A United Nations official told me that of the migrants and asylum seekers in Libya, “almost every woman” has been sexually abused.

In this context, it is astounding that the European Union is working hard to keep people off its shores, even if it means leaving them in Libya. As outlined in a declaration in Malta in February, EU heads of state have promised to train and equip the Libyan coastguard and are hoping to “ensure [there are] adequate reception capacities and conditions in Libya for migrants.”

With summer weather approaching—bringing better conditions for crossing the Mediterranean—the EU and its member states are working with a sense of urgency that is palpable.

Training the Libyan coastguard is a welcome move if it contributes to saving lives and treating those rescued with humanity and respect. But the question of what happens after they are rescued is key: People are currently taken to detention centers where they are held in inhuman conditions.

Describing such centers, asylum seekers and migrants told me they had been beaten and forced to ask their relatives for money, that sometimes those who could not pay were shot, and that they were hardly fed at all. In addition, the collusion between smugglers and people running some detention centres is no secret.

Absent from the EU plan is what happens to people who fled their homes because of violence or persecution. Many of those arriving in Italy via Libya are in this category, among them Eritreans, Somalis, Sudanese, and people fleeing other countries because it is unsafe for them, often because of their political activities or sexual orientation.

The EU is focused on increasing the number of people returning from Libya to their country of origin, but there does not seem to be any consideration for those who cannot do so safely.

Despite the ongoing chaos and violence in Libya there is an absence—with very few exceptions—of international staff, including those from the EU, the U.N., and humanitarian organizations on the ground. As such, the idea that the situation for migrants and asylum seekers will dramatically improve in the coming months is utterly unrealistic.

One Eritrean man told me that “it’s better to die in the sea than to stay in Libya.” Smugglers had chained him to the ground by the ankles for three days when he was unable to pay the money they demanded. It is little surprise that for people like him, risking their lives crossing the Mediterranean seems like the only option.

Smugglers Kill At Least 22 African Migrants On Libya Beach After Refusing To Board Their Boat Due To Bad Weather

Posted by addisethiopia on March 10, 2017

People-smugglers have killed 22 African migrants on a beach in western Libya, a security source said on Wednesday.

The migrants were set to embark from Sabrata beach, 70km west of Tripoli, in a perilous attempt to cross the Mediterranean, the source said.

They were killed after refusing to board their boat due to bad weather, the source added.

The Libyan Red Crescent confirmed the killings had taken place over the weekend, but was unable to provide further details.

The Geneva-based International Organisation for Migration said on Tuesday it had heard reports of the deaths.

“There seems to have been an exchange of fire between the smugglers, which resulted in the death of 22 migrants,” it said.

‘Habesha’ Christian Migrants Kidnapped by Isis in Libya Kept as Sex Slaves After Forced Conversion to Islam

Posted by addisethiopia on July 2, 2016

Know islam, no peace.

No islam, know peace.

SexJihad

Captives were beaten and threatened with death unless they converted – then the sexual abuse would begin.

Christian migrants in Libya hoping to reach Europe have detailed the persecution they have faced at the hands of Islamic State including starvation, beatings, sexual slavery and forced conversion to Islam.

Amal, a 21-year-old Eritrean woman, described how she was raped by different men and was finally assigned as a “wife” to one IS fighter who also raped her after she was kidnapped near Benghazi in July 2015.

The young woman described how she and a group of 71 people she was travelling with were deprived of food for up to three days at a time over a period of months.

“They took [the Christians] to Tripoli and kept us underground – we didn’t see the sun for nine months. We were 11 women from Eritrea,” she said. “Sometimes we didn’t eat for three days. Other times they would give us one meal a day, half a piece of bread.”

Amal also described how the captives were pressured into converting into Islam under threat of death and were beaten with hoses or sticks. “Sometimes they would frighten us with their guns, or threaten to slaughter us with their knives,” she explained. After women agreed to convert the sexual violence and rape would begin.

In another case, in 2015 Adam, 28, a man from Ethiopia living in Benghazi with his wife, was abducted by IS simply because he was a Christian.

“They kept me in a prison for one and half months. Then one of them felt sorry for me after I told him I have a family and he helped me memorize the Quran so they would let me go… They killed many people,” he explained. Adam said he was was eventually able to escape after seven months in captivity.

According to the International Organisation for Immigration (IOM), most foreign nationals residing in Libya originate from Niger, Egypt, Chad, Ghana and Sudan. The majority of those transiting through the country and then crossing to Italy by boat are from Eritrea, Nigeria, Gambia, Somalia and Côte d’Ivoire. The main transit point for people from West Africa entering Libya is the south-western city of Sabha.

Those entering via Sudan from Somalia, Eritrea and Ethiopia come through Kufra, and then travel on to Ajdabiya in the north eastern part of the country. Most boats heading to Europe depart from north-western Libya. Before departure, foreign nationals are held in houses and farms until more people are gathered for the journey.

New Video: More Ethiopian Christians Beheaded in Libya by Satan Worshipping Jihadists

Posted by addisethiopia on May 12, 2016

EthioChristians

Islamic State (ISIS) released a horrifying clip of the mass execution as they continue to wage war on those who do not follow their sick ideals. 

Ethiopian Christians can be seen dressed in orange jumpsuits with dozens of masked terrorists standing behind them.

The 29-minute video shows the jihadis separate the Christians into two groups on a beach in Libya.

In distressing scenes one group is then shot and the other beheaded.

The terrorists describe the men as “followers of the cross from the enemy Ethiopian Church“.

ISIS claim the men did not pay a compulsory religious tax and were left with one option – to convert.

The slickly-edited video then shows scenes of cities under the control of ISIS including Ninevah and Mosul in Iraq

The footage shows churches in both cities being blown up as ISIS continues to destroy scores of religious buildings.

A group of Coptic Christians were also murdered on a beach in Libya in February.

ISIS has forced hundreds of thousands of Christians to flee from their homes in Iraq, Libya and Syria.

Those who remain are face abduction, torture and execution if they refuse to convert.

Concerns have been raised Christianity could be wiped out in the Middle East as Islamic extremism continues its rampage.

The World’s Most Wanted People-Smuggler

Posted by addisethiopia on July 23, 2015

የኢትዮጵያን ስም ከመጥፎ ነገር ጋር አያይዞ በመጥራት የአገራችንን ስም ለማጥፋት እንዴት እንደሚቸኩሉና እንደሚደሰቱ ይህን መሰሉ ጽሑፍ ይጠቁመናል። ወንጀለኛውን ግርማይ መልምለውት ቢሆን አያስገርምም!

An Ethiopian called Ghermay Ermias is the dangerous and elusive criminal behind Europe’s migrant crisis

BoogeyManOperation Glauco – it is an ongoing 18-month investigation into Africa’s most organised and ruthless people–trafficking organisation conducted by the Italian Squadra Mobile.

In an impressive feat of detection, the Sicily-based cops have compiled over 700 pages of evidence against the trafficking gang. Veterans of the decades-long war against the Sicilian Cosa Nostra (the Mafia), the investigative squad employed all the same techniques that worked against their traditional enemy — including covert surveillance, witness protection and, above all, mobile phone intercepts.

It is evidence from the phone taps that prove the Colonel’s prison officers are bent. In May of last year, one of the top-dog traffickers was taped boasting about how he bribed the guards in the detention centres. Corrupt officers released their inmates for cash, it turned out, and the traffickers would then hold them to ransom. If their relatives failed to pay up, the migrants were severely beaten, the women raped.

The Glauco operation was launched in the aftermath of a tragedy in October 2013, when a vessel carrying several hundred African migrants caught fire off the coast of Lampedusa and sank. There were 366 fatalities — mostly Eritreans fleeing one of the world’s most oppressive regimes.

Pope Francis called the incident ‘a disgrace’ and a task force was quickly assembled. Within weeks the main culprit had been identified: a multinational criminal enterprise operating in Sudan, Libya and the European mainland; the capo di tutti capi of the people-trafficking gang, an Ethiopian called Ghermay Ermias.

Gerry Ferrara, the Sicilian lawyer charged with bringing Ermias to justice, has successfully challenged some of the most ruthless mafiosi, as well as Balkan and Rwandan war criminals. He ranks his latest foe among the worst criminals he has encountered. ‘Ermias is very famous all over Africa,’ Ferrara says. ‘Everybody knows him but at same time it is very difficult to identify him — where he lives, nobody knows.’

“I’m often suspicious when a single man is identified as the root of the world’s problems. It’s often a gross over-simplification, as if he were a Bond villain. The media obsesses about one man, and the overall problem is not studied or explained properly. It normally suits someone’s agenda to leave it thus.”

“The powers that be setting up a bogeyman for their open borders/destruction of Western civilisation policy. Watch how the EU and its slave governments pretend to hunt this person down and shift the blame onto him and other smugglers. We really are being governed by the most evil people ever and I am fed up with the constant deceit.”

Muslims Are Beginning To See The Light Of Christ As Massive Number Of Christians Erupt In Ethiopia To Honor Christ In Support Of Their Christian Martyrs

Posted by addisethiopia on April 23, 2015

ew2-copy

The massacre committed by ISIS Muslims who slaughtered Ethiopian Christians in Libya, caused a wave of anger amongst Christians and also Muslims who called for justice. It was very moving to watch the Ethiopia scene with the massive numbers who erupted in solidarity with the families of the Christian martyrs who gave their lives for the cause of Christ. The protesters wanted justice for the beheadings and shooting showed in a video released on Sunday by ISIS. The Ethiopian victims are widely believed to have been captured in Libya while trying to reach Europe. Christian Ethiopians are angered at the massacre when ISIS produced a video, in which ISIS called Christians “crusaders” and subtitled the horrific event as “worshippers of the cross belonging to the hostile Ethiopian Church.”

The scene with priests carrying crosses and demonstrators as far as your eye can see (estimated more than 100,000) Ethiopians is something to remember.

Ahaza Kassaye, the mother of one of the victims identified as Eyasu Yikunoamlak, told The Associated Press during the protest Wednesday that she was overwhelmed by the massive turnout.

I’m happy now. I’m very happy. I was just mourning the death of my son with family members and my neighbors. I never expected this to happen,” she said.

what is definite and what is becoming obvious from the events the world is witnessing in the Middle East, is that there is a divide between two: Muslims who are questioning all the violence standing alongside the followers of God who take the Mark of God and the followers of the spirit of Antichrist who proudly take the mark of Islam.

It is obvious, there are folks who claim the religion of Islam and they too weep for the blood of Christian saints. One very moving video I found was of a Muslim girl who weeps for the Christians massacred:

She bravely gave her name and sent her message to ISIS: “You are animals, you are criminals, you are not of the sons of Adam, but the sons of satan. May God burn you in hellfire … who are you to judge between Muslim and Christian. Only God is the ultimate judge”.

Righteous words indeed. It amazes me to see that the blood of the saints is opening the eyes of many Muslims to begin to question and ask, why? These days, I see what I have never seen before, in Egypt Muslims burning several Islamic books that calls for violence. True love can only come from the Light of Christ. Few pay attention that in the Bible God rescues a remnant of the Muslim world:

And it shall come to pass that everyone who is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. “[Zechariah 14:16]

These at one point were followers of the spirit of Antichrist. Why else did they come against Jerusalem? The text is clear “of all the nations which came against Jerusalem”.

The day will come when Muslims will seek God and see that Christ is The Way, The Truth and The Life. Pray for the Muslims in Ethiopia to take the Mark of God.

The Thirty Christian Ethiopians Are in Heaven While Your Souls Will Rot in Hell, You Devil Worshipers

Posted by addisethiopia on April 20, 2015

Why did the Muslims of ISIS behead 30 Ethiopian Christians whose lineage is said to go all the way back to Philip the Apostle?

አንረሳም

From the video (see 3:26) we translated, ISIS gave a way out:

We tell the Christians everywhere that the Islamic state will spread by Allah’s will. It [the Islamic state] will get to you even if you are safe in your fortresses. Who ever converts to Islam, he will have peace and who accepts the Dhimmi status will be at peace. But who rejects our terms he will receive nothing from us except the sharpness of the sword. Men will be slaughtered and the women and children will be enslaved and their monies are confiscated as booty. This is the rule of Allah and his prophet. And to Allah is the pride and also to the believers but the hypocrites do not understand.

They gave that message only in Arabic.

So according to ISIS these Christians refused to convert and submit to Islam, so they got slaughtered.

This is perhaps why they did not translate this part of their message to English, which was for Copts and Ethiopians who are known for their stubbornness not to convert. And so ISIS did not want to admit, as they did in the previous release with the 21 Copts, that these Christians refused to convert, as usual. These Christians are not like some liberal journalist hostage who plays along and moves his lips saying “I declare there is no God but Allah …” while he ‘repents later’, when he is on the other side.

The Muslims know that it is extremly rare that Copts and Ethiopians convert. It is perhaps fitting to call these “Stubborn For Jesus”.

So of course, the rest is translated in the English in which it is all about breaking the cross as the message is clear, it is the breaking of the will of the Christians which ISIS failed to do with these saints.

The scene is a microcosm of what is to come as John the Revelator predicted that prior to Christ’s coming:

” … I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years.[Revelation 20:4]

But the first part of the verse says: “I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge.” So in the end it will be the slain who will judge these executioners.

My Message To Muslims

So Muslim, go ahead, execute, slice and decapitate, for the time is coming when you will suffer eternally in hell while your ‘Nebi Muhammad’ (false prophet Muhammad) will stoop. As the Scriptures say: “Bel bows, Nebo stoops” (Isaiah 46:1). And bow he will from the fear of the Son of God. We fear not your blade, “Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.” (Matthew 10:28)

In other words, the thirty are in heaven while your souls will rot in hell. Come to our fortresses and see the wrath you will receive. In other words, go to hell.

Here, let me explain to you how it works, biblically. Your victories by the sword can only be announced when all Christians bow towards your idol image in Mecca which you Muslims will eventually destroy with your own hands. As long as Christians choose your scimitar blade over prostrating in submission towards your idol, the victory will always be for the slain and not the stupid butcher; we are the ones who submit to die for God while you only die for your pleasure and for booty. Indeed, you are slaves to yourselves. The devil thought he was victorious when the lamb of God, Christ, was slain, but the victory was Christ’s and ours. The devil fooled you to believe that Christ was not crucified and you thought yourselves to be smart by filling yourselves with pride saying “we will conquer … and we will dominate …”. Your pride comes from your Allah who is the devil disguised as God and the Magi, as you call them “Majus”, the Shiites shall destroy your idol in Mecca. It is written and so it will be.

You lost against these Ethiopian saints. The history of these Ethiopian Christians stems way before your heresiarch Muhammad. Ethiopian Christians stem from the 8th chapter of Acts is that Philip the Evangelist has been sent from Jerusalem by an angel of the Lord “…to go toward south to the road that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza.” (v. 26) It is on this road that Philip meets the Ethiopian who “had come to Jerusalem and was returning home” (v.28-29). So Christianity in Ethiopia dates to the 1st century, way before your false prophet making Ethiopia unique amongst sub-Saharan African countries.

Today you show the killing of thirty, yet the Ethiopian Church has 40-45 million and is thus the largest of all Oriental Orthodox churches. There are also 13.7 million Protestants and half million Catholics who love Christ and are willing to die for Him.

To our Christian brethren, please consider the serious issue on Christian persecution which will increase as we see these events unfold. we operate a very effective mission in rescuing fellow Christians who live under the Muslim yoke baking bricks as slaves, burned in furnaces and slaughtered.

The Time Is Coming That Whoever Kills You Will Think That He Is Offering A Service To God’

How do you deal with psychotic religious warriors that believe that they are offering a service to God by killing Christians?

Ever since 9/11, we were endlessly told about what a great threat “al-Qaeda” was, but I don’t remember a single time when al-Qaeda ever marched a group of Christians out and beheaded them on camera. ISIS appears to be an entirely different animal than al-Qaeda ever was, and it is about time that we started taking them seriously.

But the Obama administration is actually allowing Americans that went overseas to fight for ISIS to come back into the country and resume their normal lives. To me, that is absolutely insane. These are people that believe that they score major points with their god when they kill us. And they especially seem to relish the opportunity to kill Christians. Sadly, this is all part of a rising trend of Christian persecution all over the planet. Christian churches are being burned to the ground in places such as Egypt, India and West Africa, and earlier this month we witnessed a horrific incident during which more than a hundred Christians were mercilessly gunned down in Kenya. It is becoming increasingly dangerous to be a Christian, and it is only going to get worse in the years ahead.

You have to keep in mind that these ISIS fighters are actually convinced that they are the good guys. They don’t believe that what they are doing is evil. When they kill Christians, they are just doing what they believe their god wants them to do

A shocking new video appearing to show at least 30 Christian Ethiopians being beheaded and shot by ISIS in Libya has been released.

The 29-minute video, titled ‘Until It Came To Them – Clear Evidence’, shows dozens of militants holding two separate groups captive, thought to be in the south and the west of the country.

At least 16 men, described by Islamic State as the ‘followers of the cross from the enemy Ethiopian Church’, are lined up and shot in a desert area while 12 others are filmed being forced to walk down a beach before being beheaded.

This follows another video in February of the beheading of a group of 21 Coptic Christians on the beach in Libya, though that terrain was rockier than the one shown in the latest film.

This video that was released makes it abundantly clear what these killers are motivated by. The following description of the audio on this latest ISIS video comes from CNN

All praise be to Allah, the Lord and cherisher of the world and may peace and blessings be upon the Prophet Mohammed. To the nation of the cross, we are back again on the sands, where the companions of the Prophet, peace be upon him, have stepped on before, telling you: Muslim blood that was shed under the hands of your religion is not cheap,” the narrator says in Arabic on the 30-minute video.

The narrator continues, “In fact, their blood is the purest blood because there is a nation behind them (which) inherits revenge. And we swear to Allah: the one who disgraced you by our hands, you will not have safety, even in your dreams, until you embrace Islam.”

Do you understand what is being said there?

They will not stop fighting until we all embrace Islam.

Not much room for negotiation there.

Meanwhile, other Islamic groups all over the planet are starting to take their cues from ISIS, and this is resulting in a rising tide of violence against Christians.

For example, recall the incident in the Mediterranean Sea the other day in which a dozen innocent Christians were tossed to their deaths

When a rubber dinghy carrying around 100 African refugees across the Mediterranean began to sink, a Nigerian Christian prayed for his life in an innocent act that would end in the deaths of 12 fellow migrants.

One of the Muslims on board the rickety craft ordered him to stop, saying: ‘Here, we only pray to Allah.’

When he refused, a violent fight ensued and 12 Christians drowned when they were thrown overboard by the Muslim refugees.

Who in the world would do such a thing?

The only reason those 12 people were killed was because they were Christians.

The following is what Reverend Franklin Graham had to say about this incident…

The Italian police have arrested 15 Muslims for throwing 12 people overboard and watching them helplessly drown in the Mediterranean,” said Rev. Graham in an Apr. 17 Facebook post.

He continued, “Why? Just because they were Christians! Because Islam has a deep and relentless hatred for people who bear the Name of Christ. These Christians were among a group of 105 people who were trying to escape war and poverty in Africa and were headed to Italy to look for work.”

We saw another example of this kind of violence against Christians earlier this year in West Africa

It took only a few hours, but it was enough time for hundreds of radical Muslims in Niger, West Africa, to destroy dozens of churches and several Christian homes. Ten people lost their lives and hundreds were injured when Muslim mobs went on the deadly rampage in early January.

Now, three months later, Christians living there are moving forward, determined to still preach the Gospel despite the dangers.

In most of these attacks around the globe, those involved do not believe that they are doing anything wrong.

Rather, most of the people involved in this violence believe that they are actually offering a service to their god.

And the tide is turning in the western world as well. I don’t know if you have noticed, but it is quite socially acceptable to make jokes about Christians and to portray them as bad guys and lunatics in movies and on television shows. Evangelical Christians are even being labeled as “potential terrorists” in official government documents, and every trace of the Christian faith is being pushed out of public life in the United States. I discussed how this is being done in the U.S. military in this recent article, but just about everywhere you look Christianity is being pushed into the shadows. The disdain for the faith of our forefathers has reached a crescendo, and it is not going to be any easier to be a Christian in this country in the years ahead – that is for sure.
