Why is Westminster Abbey Honoring The King of a Country Where Christianity is Banned?

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on January 25, 2015

ከዚህ በኋላ ታላቅ ስልጣን ያለው ሌላ መልአክ ከሰማይ ሲወርድ አየሁ፥ ከክብሩም የተነሣ ምድር በራች።

በብርቱም ድምፅ። ታላቂቱ ባቢሎን ወደቀች፥ ወደቀች፥ የአጋንንትም ማደሪያ ሆነች፥ የርኵሳንም መናፍስት ሁሉ መጠጊያ የርኵሳንና የተጠሉም ወፎች ሁሉ መጠጊያ ሆነች፤

አሕዛብ ሁሉ ከዝሙትዋ ቍጣ ወይን ጠጅ የተነሳ ወድቀዋልና፥ የምድርም ነገሥታት ከእርስዋ ጋር ሴሰኑ የምድርም ነጋዴዎች ከቅምጥልነትዋ ኃይል የተነሳ ባለ ጠጋዎች ሆኑ ብሎ ጮኸ።

ከሰማይም ሌላ ድምፅ ሰማሁ እንዲህ ሲል። ሕዝቤ ሆይ፥ በኃጢአትዋ እንዳትተባበሩ ከመቅሠፍትዋም እንዳትቀበሉ ከእርስዋ ዘንድ ውጡ [ረዕይ 181-4]

ድንቅ ነው! እግዚአብሔር አምላክ ሥራ እጅግ በጣም ድንቅ ነው!

  • በፔትሮዶላር የሰከሩት የዓለማችን ነገሥታት ለሳኡዲ ባቢሎን ንጉሥ ሽርጉድ ሲሉ: ሲያጎበድዱ ይታያሉ። በፓሪሱ ጸረእስላማዊ ሽብርተኝነት ሰልፍ ላይ ለመገኘት አሻፈረኝ ያሉት ፕሬዚደንት ኦባማም በመጪው ማክሰኞ የህንድ ጉብኝታቸውን አቋርጣው ወደ ሳዑዲ ባቢሎን አረቢያ ይጓዛሉ። ለሦስተኛ ጊዜያቸው መሆኑ ነው! ወቸውጉድ!

Private Eye will have a field day when it comes to the tributes being paid to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia – it’ll be like beheading fish in a barrel (for adultery). Among the tributes paid to the people’s medieval theocrat was one by David Cameron, who said:

I am deeply saddened to hear of the death of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, His Majesty King Abdullah bin Abd Al Aziz Al Saud.

“He will be remembered for his long years of service to the Kingdom, for his commitment to peace and for strengthening understanding between faiths.

“I sincerely hope that the long and deep ties between our two Kingdoms will continue and that we can continue to work together to strengthen peace and prosperity in the world.”

PS We’re having a special deal on Typhoons at the moment – 6 for 5. D.C.’

Ok, he didn’t say that last bit.

Then there was Angela Merkel, who said King Abdullah’s policies ‘brought him and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia respect and recognition. With wisdom, foresight and great personal dedication, he strove for a cautious modernization of his country and for dialogue between the Islamic world and the West.’ Considering women still aren’t allowed to drive, I think cautious is a bit of an understatement.

Likewise with the IMG’s Christine Lagarde, who said Saudi King Abdullah was a strong advocate of women ‘in a very discreet way’:

Indeed – very discreet! As for Tony Blair, who said that the king was a ‘staunch advocate of inter faith relations’, when they read that out in the office did all they burst out laughing like bad guys in 1980s action films? I believe in showing respect to the dead but do world leaders have to openly grovel to a country that exports Islamism around the world, whose ideology has poisoned countries like Pakistan and Indonesia, and which has funded Islamist murderers in Syria and Iraq. Abdullah’s kingdom is currently half-way through flogging a man to death for blogging and holds public beheadings for such crimes as witchcraft and homosexuality. So let’s not fall over ourselves here. The nicest thing that can be said about the Saudi royals is that the alternative would almost certainly be even more ghastly (an alternative created by the Saudis themselves, of course). Most craven of all is the decision by Westminster Abbey to fly a flag at half-mast, a church honouring the leader of a country where conversion to Christianity is a capital offence. It’s appropriate for the Foreign Office in Whitehall to mark the late king’s passing, but for a church to do so, when Saudi treats Christians so badly, is utterly pathetic. If the Saudis despise us for such craven behaviour, they are right to.

Saudi Arabia Outlaws ‘Tempting Eyes’

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on November 17, 2014

Sau

A new law in Saudi Arabia banning ‘tempting eyes’ has become the latest example of female oppression in the country.

The law, which states that women with alluring eyes will be forced to wear a full veil, has been branded ‘stupid’ by dissenters and roundly criticised on social media, aina.org reports.

Sheikh Motlab al Nabet, spokesman of the Saudi Arabian Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice, said they ‘had the right’ to force women to cover their face.

The men of the committee will interfere to force women to cover their eyes, especially the tempting ones,’ he said.

We have the right to do so.’

Many commentators wondered how the word ‘tempting’ would be applied.

One unnamed journalist in the country suggested it referred to ‘uncovered eyes with a nice shape and makeup.’

Or even without makeup, if they are beautiful, the woman will be in trouble,’ they added.

Hillary Clinton: Riyadh Biggest Funder of World Extremist

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on December 3, 2013

My Note: The whole world knew about it before 9/11. It was known when President Bush paraded in Washington holding the King’s hand, and it was known when Obama bowed down in an embarrassing fashion to the same cruel Saudi King a couple of years later. Secretary of State, John Kerry said last month: “I have great confidence that the United States and Saudi Arabia will continue to be the close and important friends and allies that we have been” . Well, may be Americans think like: “keep your friends close, but your enemies even closer”… hopefully!

cartoon-oil-vultures-graytoneSaudi Arabia is the sole biggest funder of extremism in the world and is unwilling to cut off the money supply, according to a leaked note from Hillary Clinton.

The former US Secretary of State says in a secret memorandum that donors in the kingdom still “constitute the most significant source of funding to Sunni terrorist groups worldwide” and that “it has been an ongoing challenge to persuade Saudi officials to treat terrorist financing emanating from Saudi Arabia as a strategic priority”.

In a separate diplomatic cable published by WikiLeaks, the militant group which carried out the Mumbai bombings in 2008, Lashkar-e-Toiba, is reported to have secured money in Saudi Arabia via one of its charity offshoots which raises money for schools.

Saudi Arabia is accused, along with Qatar, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates, of failing to prevent some of its richest citizens financing the insurgency against Nato troops in Afghanistan.

However, it is Saudi Arabia that receives the harshest assessment. The country from which Osama bin Laden and most of the 9/11 terrorists originated, according to Mrs Clinton, “a critical financial support base for al-Qa’ida, the Taliban, Lashkar-e-Toiba and other terrorist groups, including Hamas, which probably raise millions of dollars annually from Saudi sources, often during the Haj and Ramadan”.

These pilgrimages, especially the Haj, are described as a “big problem” in another cable dated 29 May 2009. Detailing a briefing from the Saudi interior ministry to Richard Holbrooke, the US envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan, it notes: “The Haj is still a major security loophole for the Saudis, since pilgrims often travel with large amounts of cash and the Saudis cannot refuse them entry into Saudi Arabia.”

It also quotes one of the officials admitting that the Haj is “a vacuum in our security”. The huge annual influx of Muslims from around the world offers a prime opportunity for militants and their donors to enter the kingdom to exchange funds, launder money through front companies and accept money from government-approved charities.

The memo underlines that the US supports the work of Islamic charities, but is frustrated that they are so easily exploited to fund terrorism.

“In 2002, the Saudi government promised to set up a charities committee that would address this issue, but has yet to do so,” Mrs Clinton’s cable reads, before seeming to admit with disappointment that merely “obtaining Saudi acknowledgement of the scope of this problem and a commitment to take decisive action” has proved hard.

Saudi Arabia Arrests 53 Ethiopian Christians at Private Worship Service

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on February 16, 2013

My note: of course, no good-news over the Arabian desert, and, as usual, no word from the Christian-biased mainstream media! CNN, BBC & Co seem to be more concerned about the fate of an Indian rape-victim, gay rights or Burmese Muslim invaders than about the increasing persecution of “fellow” Christians. How ungrateful!

Saudis finances and supports the evil Wahhabi movements across the globe, including Ethiopia, brainwash weak citizens of Ethiopia to murder fellow Ethiopian Christians, kidnap little girls, burn down their Holy Christian Churches, and desecrate Bibles and Icons like the one we see in the above heart-breaking video from the year 2012. All these things are happening to the very same Ethiopian people who once gave asylum and protection to the followers of their Prophet. All soon be in our school books. Well, Christians have in history suffered much persecution and their faith has been strengthened in those times. So, whether they like it or not, many Christians will begin to demonstrate acts of power by faith – many non-Christians will come to faith in the Living God, through witnessing the acts of power, and through experiencing a manifestation of the presence of Eyesus Chrstos, through the Spirit of the Almighty Egziabher. Let’s pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters.

Saudi authorities on Feb. 8 arrested 53 Ethiopian Christians, mostly women, who were attending a worship service in the private, rented home of an Ethiopian believer in Dammam, the capital of the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia, WEA-RLC has learnt from sources inside the Arab kingdom.

The Christians – 46 women and six men including three church leaders – were arrested at about 10 a.m. last Friday, a close relative of one of those arrested told WEA-RLC. The three church leaders – two of them women – were produced in an Islamic court in Dammam the same day when authorities alleged they were converting Muslims to Christianity, the source added.

Authorities are likely to release two of the Ethiopian Christians who have residential permits on Monday, and the others are expected to be deported.

Dammam, a center for petroleum and natural gas and all commerce in the eastern parts of the kingdom, is a large metropolitan, industrial area and a major seaport. However, religious freedom is not granted to the numerous visitors or expats in the region, like elsewhere in the nation. A Saudi girl who embraced Christianity and fled Dammam in September 2012 was granted asylum in Sweden last month, according to Al-Yaum newspaper.

In December 2011, Saudi authorities arrested 35 Ethiopian Christians, 29 of them women, for “illicit mingling,” after police arrested them when they raided a private prayer gathering in Jeddah. Of those arrested 29 were women, who were subjected to arbitrary body cavity searches in custody
