Barcelona Jihadists Intended to Blow Up Christian Basilica of Sagrada Familia

Posted by addisethiopia on August 21, 2017

The Islamic terrorists who carried out a killing rampage in Barcelona earlier this week had plans to blow up the iconic Catholic basilica of la Sagrada Familia, according to new reports.

The Spanish newspaper El Español has noted that the jihadist cell had a stockpile of explosives at a nearby property in Alcanar (Tarragona) and intended to use three vans to detonate them in three different points of the city in order to inflict the greatest possible damage. An accidental explosion at the Alcanar estate on Wednesday left the terrorists without ammunition and forced them to improvise the vehicle attacks in Barcelona and Cambrils, the report states.

They were preparing one or several attacks in Barcelona and an explosion in Alcanar stopped this as they no longer had the material they needed to commit attacks of an even bigger scope,” said Josep Lluis Trapero of Catalonia’s police.

The explosion killed one jihadists and left another in serious condition.

The prime target of the attack was meant to be the Catholic Sagrada Familia (Holy Family) basilica, an enormous neo-gothic structure designed by Spanish artist Antoni Gaudí, which draws huge numbers of visitors and pilgrims each day. Construction of the still unfinished church began in 1882 and is projected for completion in 2026.

According to reports, the terrorists had chosen the Basilica of the Sagrada Familia as their main target because it is a symbol of the city and of the Christian religion, as well as for the massive flow of visitors. During 2016, the church was visited by some 4.5 million people, and more than 20 million people came to view the structure from the outside.

The second bombing objective was La Rambla, which in addition to the continuous flow of pedestrians passing by this emblematic walk, is located next to the Market of La Boquería, one of the most frequented destinations in the city.

The third target has not yet been identified, but investigators suspect it was to be a port area.

Just before 5:00pm on Thursday, one of the jihadists drove a rented van through the city’s tourist hotspot of La Rambla, a pedestrian walkway, mowing down people and even swerving in an attempt to hit as many victims as possible. In the end, the man killed 14 people and injured dozens more in his rampage.

The design of the original attack, including the resources and number of persons involved, has confirmed that the operation was the work of a coordinated jihadist cell, rather than of “lone wolves.”

Them mūzbags, that rabble so rowdy,
Planned to burn the Cathedral of Gaudi.
If the cash now we trace,
It will flow from one place:
The land of the serpentine Saudi.

My Note: It’s Purple Day – Spain and Europe Will Need the Wonderful Warrior Queen Isabella la Católica soon. Sadly, it will take a nuclear bomb and 1 million dead before the western world wakes up and realizes that they are all going to be murdered by these Muslims unless they do something á la Isabella.

In the name of the Father,the Son,and the Holy Spirit.
Amen.

Finally. We have achieved what we longed for so much. Christianity will remember this day.
Victory is far more pleasing when you have suffered for it. It is our desire that a large cross be erected on the highest tower. It must be seen from the last corner of the city.
Granada is Christian and everyone must know it.

Spanish Catholics Stage ‘Prayer Protest’ After Muslim Mass Prayer At Christian Landmark

Posted by addisethiopia on June 16, 2017

Catholics in the Spanish city of Granada struck back at what they described as a “provocative” decision to stage a Ramadan fast-breaking in front of a statue of the Virgin Mary, by arranging a mass public prayer at the same spot.

“We are here because we can’t allow that to happen. They can’t do it in Granada. They can do so in their place, but not in the Jardines del Triunfo that has been ours for so long,” a Catholic at the event told RT’s Ruptly video agency.

The present-day Jardines del Triunfo started off as 13th century Islamic cemetery during the Muslim occupation of Spain, but is now dominated by a 17th century statue of the Immaculate Conception, located atop a towering pillar.

The decision to stage a prayer to break the daily Ramadan fast on June 10 was taken jointly by a Socialist-controlled city hall and an Islamic group, the Euroarab Foundation.

Those who chanted traditional Catholic prayers at the gardens this week, led by a leader with a megaphone, disagreed.

“It was a lack of respect to Catholics. I love everybody: Arabs, Buddhists alike. It was a provocation, and due to the municipality of Granada,” said a middle-aged woman.

Selected Comments:

“a socialist major”…as usual socialists hate Catholics so much that they team up with Muslims in order to degrade and ridicule Catholics…why socialist hate so much the catholic church???

Looks like the local Muslims have found some new politician friends.

I think it was a place in Spain that saved Europe from becoming Muslim a long time ago.

The Euroarab Foundation is financed with radical, Saudi Wahhabi money. The Saudis want to recover Al Andalus for their idea of Umma. Other religions and not only Christianity will then be outlawed like in Saudi Arabia, the Sharia will be the only law.

If we Catholics would do the same and go to a mosque (what is impossible) then we had already a war going on. But when we are protesting about their provocative behavior then we are blamed for not accepting Muslims. That is why Muslims are not the people who belong to be in European countries. If they want to do their things, they can do it in there mosques that are build with our taxpayers money. What they want more? Integration? Oh what a joke!

Muslims have no place living in modern western countries. If the free world wants to really be free we need to break the chains the world banks have placed upon us and close our borders until the corrupt elite globalists are brought to justice.

Muslims believe Spain “belongs” to them. They want to turn it into another Islamic ghetto full of car bombs.

You have tried and Failed – You will always Fail but We will always be thankful that you keep trying – God Bless Israel.

To understand how Islam spreads anyone can just look at its history.

When they are the stronger side militarily, they just invade and m u r d er all who disagree. Over 80 million men/women/children lost their lives when they invaded the India subcontinent alone.

When they are weaker, they use stealth techniques as is happening in Europe now. The first generation are nice and compliant, but as their population percent grow, the Muslims become more and more demanding and less and less tolerant of their hosts beliefs and values until they do eventually reach a point where they feel strong enough to demand only the Islamic way of life, even to the natives, with dire consequences should the natives disagree.

EVERY nation that is Islamic today became that way by one of the two methods above.

There will come a time when all Muslims will be sent …… Home

Muslim are more passionate about their beliefs. Well kowtowing even 5 times a day will not help them one bit to avoid the eternal destruction.

Islam is blasphemy, plain and simple

Islam will be destroyed along with every other false religion upon the second coming of Jesus Christ.

Curious & StOrange Signs Across The World

Posted by addisethiopia on February 15, 2015

Mysterious Orange Snow Falls on Russian Town

OrangeSnow1

Orange snow falls over the Russian city of Saratov when it was blanketed with a deep covering of orange flakes.

Saratov is a major port (population over 800,000) on the Volga River, 858 km (533 miles) from Moscow, and has a moderate (for Russia) climate with an annual snowfall of about 163 centimeters (64 inches) which, until now, has never been orange.

Toxic Orange Cloud in Spain

CatalanOrangeCloud1

Toxic orange cloud created by nitric acid explosion at chemical plant spreads over FIVE Spanish towns, forcing authorities to order everyone to stay inside

US Official Says ISIS Uses Orange Jumpsuits Because Of Guantanamo

TerrOrange1

According to a U.S. defense official, the primary reason the Islamic State forces its victims to wear orange jumpsuits is to antagonize the U.S. for continuing to operate detention facilities at Guantanamo Bay.

The Recent Marian Apparitions in Northern Iraq and the Sign of Jonah

Iraq apparitionThere were some fascinating reports of apparitions of the Mother of God in northern Iraq! She is reportedly appearing visibly to the masses and her image is being captured on photographs. This is very similar to her approved appearances in Zeitun, Egypt in 1968.

Photos were taken in the night sky on January 22, 2015 at Al-Kush, Iraq. This is the last Christian City that was not taken by ISIS

A warning of the wrath of God? A cry for peace & justice? Or just a reminder that The Lord is their when people are in despair losing all hope as Christians in the Middle East are being severely persecuted and barbarically slaughtered?

There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken” [Luke 21:25-26]

Appeasing Gulf Arab Sponsors, Soccer Giants Real Madrid Remove Cross From Club Logo

Posted by addisethiopia on December 3, 2014

Satan’s design is to buy your Soul – at the very foundation of every scheme of Satan is the hidden effort to buy your soul.

SellSoulDevilIf spreading religious intolerance is the goal, a Middle Eastern bank has scored by prompting Real Madrid to alter its world-famous logo so that a small cross does not appear on an officially-licensed credit card.

The Spanish soccer giant unveiled the adjusted logo that will adorn a new credit card issued by the National Bank of Abu Dhabi, reported The Algemeiner. The new logo looks exactly like the club’s 83-year-old trademark, except for the absence of a tiny Christian cross that normally sits at the top.

The logo change was agreed to by the world’s wealthiest sports team, valued at nearly $3.5 billion, in order to avoid offending Muslim sensibilities as the team and the bank enter a three-year “strategic alliance,” according to Real Madrid President Florentino Pérez.

“I know that the local people experience every match in a special way and that our links with the UAE are constantly growing stronger,” Perez said recently. “This agreement will help the club to keep conquering the hearts of followers in the United Arab Emirates.”

Noted Spanish soccer website Marca: “from the looks of things, the club is willing to compromise on aspects of its identity in pursuit of these new fans.”

However, it was not the first time the soccer juggernaut tweaked its crest to avoid offending Islamic sensibilities.In the oil-rich Emirates in 2012, Real Madrid made the same change to smooth the way for a partnership with a UAE resort.

Real Madrid’s most recent decision to cave into Muslim religious intolerance comes at a time of growing concern for Christians in the Middle East, where Islamic State terrorists have massacred and ethnically cleansed ancient Christian communities in Iraq and Syria, noted The Algemeiner, citing a recent State Department report highlighting several violations of international standards on religious freedom in the United Arab Emirates, of which Abu Dhabi is a part.

The government prohibits proselytizing and the distribution of non-Islamic religious literature under penalty of criminal prosecution, imprisonment and deportation,” the report observed. “The law prohibits churches from erecting bell towers or displaying crosses on the outside of their premises; however, the government does not always enforce this law, and some churches display crosses on their buildings.”

Selected readers’ comments:

“El Cid Campeador is turning over in his grave. The collapse of western civilization, brick by brick. Talk about selling your soul !!!!“

“Real Madrid’s most recent decision to cave into Muslim religious intolerance comes at a time of growing concern for Christians in the Middle East, where Islamic State terrorists have massacred and ethnically cleansed ancient Christian communities in Iraq and Syria„

“If this is not the worst kind of “prostitution” and an example if greed before principles, than I don’t know what it is! The Real Madrid is no longer part of the Western civilization! „

“Just one more indication of how the West is on a path to commit cultural suicide. Islam hardly ever misses an opportunity to exercise its “Islam ueber alles” supremacist ideology.„

“Looks to me like the Middle Eastern bank, rather than scoring a victory for ‘religious tolerance’, is lacking in ‘religious tolerance’. If a Western bank had asked an Islamic organization to remove an Islamic symbol, that would certainly be called religious intolerance. Tolerance would be allowing it.„

“I would have told the UAE to stick it in their ear. They expect everyone to respect and obey ALL their religious mores, symbols and laws so why can’t they reciprocate

“Since money is now their god, they should have replaced the cross with a dollar sign.“

“It is not yet clear whether the UAE will require Ronaldo, Real Madrid’s top striker, to change his Christian name – which is, appropriately, “Cristiano.” „

Real Madrid and The Offense of The Cross

It was a really tiny cross. Honestly, it was barely noticeable in all that pearly pizzazz and gaudy gold. The Crown of Alfonso XII has been a sacred symbol of the Spanish Monarchy for more than 300 years, and that symbolism is reified by the Christian cross which sits at the crest of majesty. God has appointed; Christ is the source of wisdom; the Church proclaims its earthly sovereign. Europe still resonates with the echoes of Christendom: our history is undeniable; the fons et origo of our law, morality, freedom and fraternity are irrefutable.

But not for Spain’s supreme football team Real Madrid, who, despite proudly bearing the ‘Royal’ epithet, have excised the cross of Christ’s regency from their iconic crest after securing a sponsorship deal with the National Bank of Abu Dhabi. Apparently it’s only the sponsored credit card which carries the theologically-emasculated emblem. But that credit card doubles as the Real Madrid club membership card, so escaping sharia sensitivities censorship would appear to be impossible.

This brand variation is to accommodate the club’s Muslim fans in the United Arab Emirates, where the cross might be considered something of a stumbling block. But the new new design is therefore likely to apply to the crest’s reproduction throughout the entire Middle East, for the crucifixion of Jesus is a scandal of faith to all Muslims: their Jesus is no “suffering servant” but the prophet of miracles: He did not suffer the shame and degradation of death on a cross. Those who hang on a tree are cursed by God.

It is ironic – is it not – as the Islamic State is rampaging throughout the region, desecrating churches, destroying ancient tombs and tearing down all icons and crosses in a systematic programme of ‘religious cleansing’, that Europe is becoming complicit in this cultural conversion. While ISIS is busy crucifying Christians and cutting off their heads, Real Madrid is denying Christ by cutting off the symbol of salvation, justification and saving grace. They might as well replace it with the black Islamic flag (they haven’t, of course: the apex of the modified crown is left bare. The revision above is simply symbolic of our political acquiescence, economic deference and religious passivity which only bolster the Islamist zeal for the Caliphate and world domination).

The National Bank of Abu Dhabi may be politically prestigious, mighty powerful and filthy rich, but quite why Real Madrid’s historic monarchism and the Spanish King’s unashamed Christian profession should bow in worship of sharia fascism is the €90 million (“strategic alliance”) question (over three years). It isn’t as though Spain isn’t sensitive to the evils of autocracy and the injustices of totalitarianism. Perhaps in the globalisation of sport the market transcends morality: the cross of Christ must be subject to Sharia Mammon where it is expedient to do so. If Real Madrid seeks to conquer the hearts of potential new followers in the UAE, the National Bank of Abu Dhabi is more than happy to sponsor their conversion.

But it is curious that the cross should be excised to avoid giving offence to Real Madrid’s Muslim fans without, it appears, much consideration at all of the offence this might give to its Christian fans. How many Spanish Roman Catholic followers of ‘Los Blancos’ are disquieted if not aggrieved at the eradication of the club’s historic Christian identity in order to appease Islam? What is the point of winning hearts in the UAE if you’re losing them in the EU?

Reconquered Spain Celebrates The Holy Week – Britain Conquered by Unholy Warriors

Posted by addisethiopia on April 15, 2014

                  SEMANA SANTA / HOLY WEEK IN SPAIN
 
 
 
Truly one of Spain’s most breathtaking celebrations, Easter is a one-of-a-kind display of tradition, music, culture, theatre and religion
 
The holiday, jubilant in Sevilla and Andalucía and solemn elsewhere in Spain, is practically defined by its stunning processions comparable to the Ethiopian Timket / Epiphany or Meskel celebrations. Each of these processions typically boasts two intensely adorned floats, one of The Virgin Mary and the other of a scene from Christ’s Passion. Take in the lavish decoration of these incredible creations as they slowly pass before you accompanied by the music of coronets and drums; its hard to do without getting chills. Underneath each float, you’ll just barely be able to make out rows and rows of feet. There are up to forty men, called costaleros, who haul the float on shoulders and control its swaying motion. In fact, they practice so much and are so in sync with each other that the realistic figures on top look eerily as if they were walking along to the music.
 
Impossible to miss are the seemingly endless rows of nazarenos, or penitents, who walk along with the float.. You may even see many nazarenos walking barefoot, which is pretty impressive, considering some of the processions last up to 14 hours! Oh, and don’t be thrown off by the resemblance between the pointy hoods and long robes of the nazarenos and those of the Ku Klux Klan: it’s coincidental and completely unrelated.
 
Don’t be surprised to see how nicely the people dress to watch the processions, especially during the second half of the week. Women often dress to the nines while many men brave the sun in full suits. Of course not everybody dresses up so much, but, basically, if you want to fit in watching the processions, just leave the t-shirt you wore to paint your garage behind.
 
As with any cultural celebration, Spain’s elaborate Semana Santa was for centuries a work-in-progress. The starting point for its extensive history is clearly the death of Christ, from which it takes its subject, however the celebration that we see today is the result of centuries of evolution.
 
A significant point in the history of the Semana Santa is 1521, when the Marqués de Tarifa returned to Spain from the Holy Land. After his journey, he institutionalized the Via Crucis (Stations of the Cross) in Spain and from that moment on this holy event was celebrated with a procession. Over time, the observance of the Via Crucis eventually broke up into the various scenes of the Passion, with the incorporation of portable crosses and altars. This would eventually lead to today’s elaborate processions.
 
Check out any map of Semana Santa routes and you will see the Carrera Oficial, or official route, clearly marked. This original route, while it has evolved since 1604, continues to serve as the backbone for the present route. The final major step took place in the 17th century, when Seville’s various cofradías (brotherhoods) began dividing and organizing themselves into what they are today.
 

Twenty Five British Schools in Birmingham to Be Investigated Over ‘Extremist Muslim’ Plot Fears

 
We are sinners, acting wrongly and doing evil; we have gone against you, turning away from your orders and from your laws. We have not given ear to your servants the prophets, who said words in your name to our kings and our rulers and our fathers and all the people of the land……O Lord, shame is on us, on our kings and our rulers and our fathers, because of our sin against you” [Dan. 9: 5-8]
 
The fifth angel sounded his trumpet; and I saw a star that had fallen out of heaven onto the earth, and he was given the key to the shaft leading down to the Abyss. He opened the shaft of the Abyss, and there went up smoke from the shaft like the smoke of a huge furnace; the sun was darkened, and the sky too, by the smoke from the shaft. Then out of the smoke onto the earth came LOCUSTS, and they were given power like the power SCORPIONS have on earth. They were instructed not to harm the grass on the earth, any green plant or any tree, but only the people who did not have the seal of God on their foreheads. The LOCUSTS were not allowed to kill them, only to inflict pain on them for five months; and the pain they caused was like the pain of a SCORPION sting. In those days people will seek death but will not find it; they will long to die, but death will elude them.
 
Now these LOCUSTS looked like horses outfitted for battle. On their heads were what looked like crowns of gold, and their faces were like human faces. They had hair like women’s hair, and their teeth were like those of lions. Their chests were like iron breastplates, and the sound their wings made was like the roar of many horses and chariots rushing into battle. They had tails like those of SCORPIONS, with stings; and in their TAILS was the power to hurt people for five months. They had as king over them the angel of the Abyss, whose name in Hebrew is ‘Abaddon’ and in our language, ‘Destroyer.’
 
ISAntiChristThe prophetic seals on the books of Daniel and Revelation are unsealing right before our very eyes, as the scourges and plagues are only increasing – Islam as a designed counterpart of Christianity always reigns where light is absent, and triumphs where apostasy prevails – like in the current Western World.
 
Back to the report…
 
In Birmingham, UK, the number of schools to be investigated over fears children are being “radicalised” by extremist Muslims attempting to seize control of institutions has increased to 25.”
 
Teams of inspectors are to be sent into schools and will be able to penalise those where religious conservatism is believed to be getting in the way of teaching.”
 
The Department for Education (DfE) launched the investigation after an alleged Islamic takeover plot to force out governors and head teachers was reported in Birmingham.”
 
An anonymous letter claiming responsibility for changes in leadership at four schools in the city says it was part of a campaign called Operation Trojan Horse. The letter set out a blueprint for seizing control of schools and claimed a radical group of Muslims were pursuing their own agenda in classrooms and forcing out head teachers and governors who refused to cooperate.
 
Birmingham City Council said it was appointing a new chief advisor to directly handle at least 200 complaints received in relation to the Operation Trojan Horse allegations focusing on schools in the city.
 
Here are some of the comments from British readers on the subject:
 
We must have had the dumbest load of politicians of any country in the last 50 years to allow this to develop”
 
You guys, the country of Britain, blindly and willfully let this happen to yourself. Who’s to say you don’t deserve it? Its hard to take pity on you guys when you so willfully destroy yourselves.”
 
Slowly but surely… they are everywhere, Holland, Belgium, France, UK… and everyone is blind to this scourge.”
 
We have allowed vipers to flourish in our education system”
 
Today Schools, tomorrow Banks,the day after the Government and Justice systems!!! When is this weak Government going to start clamping down on this Destruction of the UK from within?”

Pure African Christians

Posted by addisethiopia on April 9, 2010


The Spanish art photographer, Luis López ‘Gabú’,  shows his great work under the title, ‘Pure African Christians’ in the city of Santiago de Compostela – with a very intimate photographic vision and pictorial on the Christians of the highlands of Ethiopia and Eritrea, who have their origin in the era of Jesus, unlike Christians in other parts of Africa whose faith was imposed by European colonization.
