ግብጽ | “መሀመድን ከኢየሱስ ጋር አመሳስለሃል” ብለው በመቆጣት ሙስሊሞች የክርስቲያኖችን መንደር አጠቁ

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on July 12, 2018

ከትናንትና ወዲያ በሚኒያ አውራጃ በሺህ የሚቆጠሩ ሙስሊሞች ተጠራርተው የኮፕት ወገኖቻችን ቤተክርስቲያን፣ ቤቶችና ሱቆች “እናንት ኩፋር የመስቀል አምላኪዎች፡ ከነቀሳውስታችሁ ከዚህ ከተማ ገና እናባርራችኋለን፤ አላህ ዋክበር!እያሉ በማውደም ላይ ናቸው። ለዚህ ጥቃታቸው የሰጡት ምክኒያት፦ “በፌስቡክ ላይ መሀመድን ከኢየሱስ ጋር በማመሳሰልህ የነብያችንን ክብር ነክተሃል፣ እስልምናን አንቋሽሸሃል” የሚል ነው።

በሚኒያ አውራጃ የምትገኘው ሜንባል ከተማ እስከ 45ሺህ ነዋሪዎች ሲኖሯት፡ 30% የሚሆኑት ኮፕት ወገኖቻችን ናቸው።

ጥቃቱ አሁንም ቀጥሏል፤ ኮፕቶች ከቤታቸው መውጣት ፈርተዋል፣ የፖሊስ ጥበቃ ቢደረግላቸውም ሙስሊም ጎረቤቶቻቸው “እንገላችኋለን” እያሏቸው ነው፣ ክርስቲያን ህፃናት በመጮህ ላይ ናቸው። ጥቃቱን የሚፈጽሙት እነማን እንደሆኑ ቢታወቅም እስካሁን ለመታሠር የበቃ ሙስሊም የለም።

በሊቢያ ሰማዕት ለመሆን ከበቁት 21 ኮፕቶች መካከል አንዱ ከዚህ ሠፈር ነበር።

መቼ ይሆን ከክርስቲያን ወገኖቻችን ጋር ለመተባበር ሚሊዬን ኢትዮጵያውያን መስቀል አደባባይ የሚወጡት?


Egypt: Copts Attacked After Facebook Post Showing ‘Contempt of Islam


An attack by a Muslim mob on Copts in a village in the Egyptian governorate of Minya on Monday (9 July) has left the Coptic community holed up in their houses, while security forces patrol the streets.

A local source told World Watch Monitor the situation is still very tense in the village of Menbal, 225km south of Cairo, which was also home to Gaber Mounir Adly, one of the 21 men beheaded by Islamic State in Libya in 2015.

Monday’s attack took place after Muslim villagers in Menbal, which has a population of 45,000, 30% of whom are Copts, accused a Coptic Christian of publishing a post on his Facebook page that insulted Islam, said the source, who did not wish to be named. In his post, published last Thursday (5 July), the 35-year-old Abdo Adel had compared Islam’s prophet, Muhammad, with Jesus.

The Muslim villagers filed a complaint with the police in the nearby city of Matay. Adel was arrested the following day (Friday 6 July) on charges of insulting Muhammad and contempt of Islam. He was put in custody pending further investigation.

On the day of his arrest, a group of young Muslim men tried to attack his house and had to be dispersed by police who were guarding the Copt’s home, according to the source.

We will displace you

Three days later, on Monday evening, the police were called in at 11.30pm because a mob was attacking Copts and their properties in the village.

The Muslim extremists in our village and the nearby villages incited the Muslim villagers against us …. They began pelting the Coptic-owned houses with stones and bricks, while shouting ‘Allahu akbar’ [Allah is the greatest] and chanting slogans against Copts, such as ‘We will displace you and the priest from our village, oh kaffir [infidels], oh the worshipers of the cross, oh defiled people’,” Girgis Shawky, a 32-year-old resident told World Watch Monitor.

Windows were smashed and some of the Copts sustained minor injuries. The attackers also attempted to break into the St. Tadros Church and the house of the priest, Fr. Makarious El-Kommas Antoun, but security personnel who were guarding the properties stopped them by firing in the air, he said.

However the police were unable to disperse the crowd. Only at about 1am on Tuesday morning (10 July), when regional security forces arrived, was order restored, although none of the attackers were arrested, said Shawky.

He added that “security forces have cordoned off the houses owned by Christians and the church”, while a curfew has been imposed from 8pm until 8am.

A state of panic

We lived very terrible moments while the mob were attacking our homes. Our children were screaming,” said Hany Adly, a Copt who owns an electrical-supplies shop in the village.

All of us [Copts] have stayed in our homes. We are afraid to get out to the village streets. There is a state of panic and fear among all of us here. I cannot open my shop. Despite the presence of security forces in the village, we are still receiving threats from our Muslim neighbours. They say they will take revenge on all of us as soon as the security forces leave the village. We are afraid that they will attack us this Friday after their noon prayers.”

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Selected Comments:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Niger: Churches Destroyed in Muslim Mob Attack But Bible Survives

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on January 30, 2015

Bible

Neal and Danette Childs knew they were in danger.

From their compound in Niger’s capital city they could see three churches burning. The smoke was filling their home.

We immediately started packing a trunk, putting in our valuables, our documents, and we loaded up the car,” Neal told me. “There were concerns our family would be targeted.”

The Childs family had every reason to be alarmed. A rampaging mob was attacking Christian houses of worship, and Neal was the prominent leader of a Christian ministry in the mostly Muslim country.

Our immediate response — there is that little bit of panic,” he said during a telephone conversation from the West African nation of Niger. “We were ready. We were on guard.”

It was Jan. 16 and by the week’s end Muslims had set fire to at least 45 churches and looted the homes of a number of Christian ministers. Ten people were killed. Followers of Christ fled for the lives.

The protests were over the cartoons lampooning the Prophet Muhammad that were published by the French magazine Charlie Hebdo.

The horrors of that weekend did not generate all that much press coverage. There were no solidarity marches for Niger’s tiny Christian community. There was no wall-to-wall cable news coverage. Nor could I find any mention of the burnings on the White House website.

The New York Times published a dispatch from Reuters that appeared sympathetic to the mob. The story included quotes from a Muslim explaining why they were angry — but there were no quotes from the Christian victims.

Likewise, USA Today’s coverage lacked any commentary from pastors or priests. But they did find an imam who reminded the newspaper’s readers that the Islamic faith is peaceful.

Don’t forget that Islam is against violence,” he told USA Today as the ruins of 45 Christian churches smoldered across the nation.

But the story of what really happened during that terrifying weekend deserves to be told. And it needs to be heard.

The following day Neal and his wife ventured outside to survey the ruins of the church house.

It was still smoking and warm with ashes,” he told me. “As we were looking through the rubble my wife came across the Bible.”

The Bible was charred but not destroyed, and it caused a stirring in the hearts of the Christian couple.

It was an emotional moment as you see your church in ashes,” Neal said.

At least 10 Christians from Nigeria including a pastor had died after being thrown overboard a Spain-bound boat because they prayed during the journey

The pastor and his fellow victims who were travelling from Morocco began to pray fervently for a better weather to save their boat from sinking after the sea became stormy.

Some of the survivors who probably did not join in the prayers disclosed in December 2014 that the two Muslim Cameroonians blamed the pastor and his Christian followers for causing the raging storm and pushed them all overboard in the middle of their prayers.

According to Sky News, the police became suspicious of the duo following the fearful attitudes of the survivors towards them after they arrived in Spain.

The police who confirmed the incident, “The detainees blamed the bad weather on the Nigerians who were praying and used the boards that covered the bottom of the boat to assault and throw overboard the pastor and the other Nigerian passengers.
