On the day after her high school graduation party, Henriette Karra, 17, confided in a relative her plans to become a Muslim for her boyfriend.
Henriette, an Arab Israeli, knew that her Christian family in Ramle, a city in central Israel, would be furious. Her parents had made it clear during Henriette’s year of dating her Muslim boyfriend, also an Arab Israeli, that they considered the relationship a shame to the family.
They allegedly beat and threatened her in an attempt to break up the relationship, prompting her to report the violence to police, the Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported.
Her boyfriend was in prison at the time but was scheduled to get out at the end of the week. On June 13, she told her relative of her plans to be with him. The relative then called her father, telling him Henriette’s intentions.
That day, police found Henriette dead in her parents’ kitchen, with multiple stab wounds to her neck.
Turn them back, Croatia:
Croatia wavered in its commitment to accept a growing influx of migrants after 5,600 refugees poured into the country in one day, underscoring the massive task facing Europe as people flee war and poverty.
“If migrants continued to arrive in larger numbers, Croatia would have to consider an entirely different approach,” Interior Minister Ranko Ostojic said in a statement on Thursday.
But… but… the narrative!
Is there anyone vetting these so-called refugees? Anyone?
Weaker European economies have trouble staying afloat. Now that they have unvetted, unassimiable and most likely unwilling to be productive hordes, what will they do now?
Fifteen thousand Christians were driven from Mosul. Are they now housed in Europe?
STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich. — The nation’s largest concentration of Iraqi Christians, many driven from their homeland by persecution at the hands of Muslim groups, is mounting an intensive campaign to block a proposed mosque in Sterling Heights, Michigan — sometimes by deploying public anti-Islam invective unusual in its bluntness even in this post-9/11 era.
The 20,500-square-foot mosque, to be built on four acres by the American Islamic Community Center (AICC), is to stand 60 feet tall along a major thoroughfare in a middle-class neighborhood if the Sterling Heights Planning Commission approves the plan at its meeting this Thursday. Opponents have dubbed it a “mega-mosque,” while Muslim leaders say it is of average size for houses of worship, including some nearby churches.
The Iraqi Christians have first hand knowledge of Islam’s latent bloodlust. No one is more expert than they.
This smacks of Muslim Triumphalism, a deliberate effort to rub Iraqi Christian’s noses in the blood of their relatives slaughtered in Iraq.
When one pauses to reflect on what significant Arab Christian leaders have been saying about the problems in the Middle East these past few years, one throws up one’s hands in despair. You guessed it. Their real complaint is with Israel
Last summer, a group of Christian scholars from Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, the West Bank and Iraq gathered in Cyprus under the auspices of an organization called the Christian Academic Forum for Citizenship in the Arab World.
The theme of the conference was, “Shifting Identities: Changes in the Political, Social and Religious Structures in the Arab World.”
The Diyar Consortium, a Bethlehem-based, pro-Palestinian propaganda organization led by Lutheran Pastor Rev. Dr. Mitri Raheb, played a substantial role in organizing the conference, which was attended by more than 50 intellectuals from the fields of academia, journalism, and government in the Middle East.
