ISIS-linked militants reportedly captured nine Christians, tied their hands together and shot them dead in a city in the Philippines.

The Maute group forced the civilians off their truck at a roadside checkpoint in Marawi City on Wednesday and murdered them after they were identified as Christian, local media reported.

Harrowing images show the group lying dead face-down in the grass, amid reports that villagers are afraid to move the bodies because terrorists are still in the area.

Convert or die, says Shia leader to Iraqi Christians

Dozens of Iraqi Christian families filed a lawsuit against the head of the Iraq’s Shia Waqf (Iraqi Shia Endowment Fund), Sheikh Alaa al-Moussawi, on charges of incitement against Christians.

Al-Moussawi, who is in charge of the body which maintains all of the Shia holy sites, including mosques, Huseiniyas and schools, sparked anger as he declared Christians to be “infidels” during a speech in southern Iraq, according to local media.
Al-Moussawi, described the Christians as “infidels and polytheists” and stressed the need for “jihad” against them.

Many have accused him of imitating the rhetoric of Islamic State (IS) militants by stating Iraqi Christians must either convert to Shia Islam, pay a religious tax known as a jizya tax, or be killed.

Visiting the Site of the December Coptic Church Suicide Bombing in Cairo

Walking into the church through the same entrance used by the bomber, I was struck by the eerie silence. We were escorted by one of the bishop’s assistants and several church workers were already inside, but the only sound I could hear were our footsteps on the marble floor. When we spoke, we felt compelled to only speak in the softest of whispers. I was embarrassed by the sound of the shutter on my camera.

About twenty feet inside the church is the spot where the detonation occurred. A marble column just a few feet away bears the huge shrapnel marks—as big as the palm of my hand.

Jakarta’s Christian governor jailed for two years for blasphemy

Jakarta’s Christian governor was jailed for two years Tuesday after being found guilty of committing blasphemy, capping a saga seen as a test of religious tolerance in the world’s most populous Muslim-majority nation.

Presiding judge Dwiarso Budi Santiarto told the Jakarta court that Basuki Tjahaja Purnama was “convincingly guilty of committing blasphemy and is sentenced to two years in prison”.

He ordered Purnama, known by his nickname Ahok, to be detained. Purnama said: “We will file an appeal.” Islamic hardliners outside the court cheered as news of verdict emerged and shouted “God is greatest”.

Christian refugee converts in Germany face violent attacks

The mother of four was only 38 years old and had been living in Germany since 2011. The former Muslim woman had converted to Christianity and was involved in a project to help refugees run by her community church in Prien am Chiemsee in Bavaria. None of her friends had ever thought it possible that the woman would be stabbed by a 29-year-old refugee, also from Afghanistan, on the street in front of her children’s eyes.

Police were initially cautious regarding the motive of the crime. The attacker was considered to be “mentally unstable” and is undergoing psychiatric treatment, but the investigators are also considering the woman’s conversion into a different religion as a possible motive. After all, the suspected murderer had been described as “very religious.”

Sculpture resembling cross demolished in Saudi Arabia

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — One of Saudi Arabia’s most conservative provinces has demolished a towering concrete sculpture in response to complaints by residents that it resembled a Christian cross, prompting a local commentator on Tuesday to criticize the move as possible blowback for recent reforms.

State-linked local news sites, including NewsQassim.com, reported that the municipal office for the landlocked, central province of Qassim took down the sculpture last Friday.

Videos and photos posted on social media and local news sites showed the sculpture in ruins after demolition by bulldozers in Qassim’s provincial capital of Buraydah, 220 miles (350 kilometers) northwest of the country’s capital, Riyadh.

War, Terrorism, and the Christian Exodus from the Middle East

St. George Church in Tanta, Egypt. Muslims murdered the parishioners on Palm Sunday, because Islam is a death cult.

A decade ago, I spent Easter in Damascus. Big chocolate bunnies and baskets of pastel eggs decorated shop windows in the Old City. Both the Catholic and Orthodox Easters were celebrated, and all Syrians were given time off for both three-day holidays on sequential weekends. I stopped in the Umayyad Mosque, which was built in the eighth century and named after the first dynasty to lead the Islamic world. The head of John the Baptist is reputedly buried in a large domed sanctuary—although claims vary—on the mosque’s grounds. Muslims revere John as the Prophet Yahya, the name in Arabic. Because of his birth to a long-barren mother and an aged father, Muslim women who are having trouble getting pregnant come to pray at his tomb. I watched as Christian tourists visiting the shrine mingled with Muslim women.

At least half of Syria’s Christians have fled since then.
