Coptic houses were attacked in a village in Upper Egypt last week, after Copts objected to a group of young Muslim men swimming naked in a canal in front of their homes, as Coptic women sat outside.
The incident took place on 4 June in the village of Tarshoub, in Beni Suef governorate.
“A Muslim mob gathered around the homes of Christians across the canal and began pelting them with bricks and stones, while shouting ‘Allahu akbar’ [Allah is the greatest] and chanting slogans against Copts,” local Coptic resident Nashaat Ezzat told World Watch Monitor. “They broke the windows and doors of some houses, looted and destroyed some properties.”
The media is probably NOT reporting this because it shows the true situation of Christians in Bethlehem. A Priest in a Bethlehem Church was stabbed by a Muslim after asking him to stop sexually harassing a Christian pilgram lady. Thankfully it was caught on a security camera so it can’t be denied.
Critics accused the United Nations in general and the British government in particular of continuing to discriminate against Christian refugees in favor of Muslim refugees from Syria. Barnabas Fund said it had “finally obtained figures proving that the UN has only recommended tiny token numbers of Syrian Christians … for resettlement in the UK,” whereas the “overwhelming majority of refugees recommended by the UN have been Sunni Muslims who form the majority in Syria. But Christians, and other minorities, have been repeatedly targeted for attack by Islamist groups such as IS… Disturbingly, UK officials tried to prevent the release of this information.” – United Nations and the United Kingdom; Barnabas Fund.
Nearly 4,000 “migrants” illegally crossed into Greece in the month of April alone. Despite the fact that the Balkan route has been officially closed for over two years, tens of thousands of these “migrants” have somehow managed to slip through. We know Germany has announced its “family re-unification plan,” and they have been covertly flying in migrants to the tune of nearly 10,000 a month. This has gone on far too long. There is no reason for a single Moslem to be brought into the West. In order to screen Moslems, we may have to use other Moslems to interrogate them when they want to immigrate because Moslems are doctrinally allowed to lie to non-Moslems to further the agenda of Islam, but they are forbidden from lying to fellow Moslems. Then these Moslem interrogators can tell us the truth—or they can lie to the kafir as well. There are, in my mind, only two options: 1) Accept only apostates—and they must issue a public statement renouncing Islam; 2) Accept no Moslems—the Nancy Reagan option of “Just Say No.” God, give us the strength and courage to act nobly.
U.S. Vice-President Mike Pence met with Indonesian Vice-President Jusuf Kalla on May 18 to discuss, in part, ways to improve the plight of Christians in that most populous of Islamic countries.
The meeting came in the aftermath of the recent ISIS-inspired terrorist attacks on Indonesian Christian churches. Pence praised Indonesia’s moderate Islamic culture, despite the fact that Indonesia is becoming increasingly radicalized.
A recent article titled “Passages from the Bible discovered behind Qur’an manuscript” is a reminder that for centuries Islam has been literally and figuratively erasing Christianity.
The report tells of how an eighth century Koran was found to be written over a Christian book, possibly the Bible: “French scholar Dr Eléonore Cellard … noticed that, appearing faintly behind the Arabic script, were Coptic letters. She contacted Christie’s [an auction house], and they managed to identify the Coptic text as coming from the Old Testament’s Book of Deuteronomy—part of the Torah and the Christian Old Testament.”
Shots rang out during Saturday’s service and cries of “Allahu Akbar” could be heard as congregants scrambled to close and bolt the doors, Father Sergiy, the priest at Archangel Michael Church in Chechnya’s capital of Grozny, said, according to The Associated Press. The terrorists killed one congregant outside the church building, wounded another inside the church as they attempted to gain entry, and killed two officers when police arrived on the scene, according to The New York Times. Policemen gunned down all four attackers.
The Muslim family that carried out suicide attacks on three churches in Indonesia’s second-largest city, killing a dozen people as well as its two young daughters, lived comfortably in an upper-middle class suburb and was on friendly terms with a Christian neighbor.
Indonesia, the world’s largest Muslim-majority country, has seen a recent resurgence in homegrown militancy and police said the family who carried out Sunday’s attacks were among 500 Islamic sympathizers who had returned from Syria.
2 minute penalty for jihad before Ramadan Bombathon officially begins.
According to P-O Sjödin, communicator at the Skellefteå pastorate, the vandalism must have taken place on Sunday evening or during the night to Monday. The inscription included the word “jihad” in capital letters, followed by another symbol that church officials failed to recognize. P-O Sjödin ventured that it might be a type of signature.
Two days ago in Nigeria, on April 24, around 30 Muslim herdsmen stormed a church during early morning mass and massacred nearly 20 parishioners and two clergymen.
Rev. Fathers Joseph Gor and Felix Tyolaha were slaughtered while officiating at the altar of St. Ignatius Catholic Church in Mbalom village, Benue. Worshippers were gathered in the church for the daily 5:30 a.m. service when they heard gunshots.
“People started scampering and wailing,” said Terhemen Angor, a local resident. Several people were “gunned down in cold blood while many sustained injuries including bullet wounds… After attacking the church, the invaders descended on the community and razed over 60 houses. The community is on fire and deserted, people are fleeing to neighbouring villages hoping to find a safe haven for their families.”
While the Islamic State has largely been driven out of Iraq and Syria, various Islamic extremist groups remain the largest persecutors of Christians around the world, according to a new report from Open Doors USA.
