Now in another twist to the case, she has been released and all charges against her have been dropped. The reason given was that although she was ‘immature’ when she made the decision to become a suicide bomber, she is ‘too smart’ to spend time in jail:
A medical student who openly confessed to having joined IS in Syria after being thwarted by Pakistani security during an attempted suicide attack on a church on Easter Day, has been set free.
In a public statement on Samaa TV Major General Asif Ghafoor said that Noreen Laghari was not a terrorist but was about to become one when she was saved by security forces (click here).
During his press conference the spokesperson for Pakistan’s armed forces said that she had been saved well before her kam umar (immature) mind was brainwashed by militants.
“So should we treat Noreen like a terrorist or release her so that she can tell others how she was trapped and used for terrorism?” he said. “In this way, awareness will be created among the younger generation and parents as well as institutions,” he added.
Noreen Jabar Leghari (20 yrs) was a second year student of MBBS in Liaquat University of Medical Science (LUMS), Jamshoro, but went missing from her family home two months ago (February 10th). She later confessed to having joined up with terrorist group IS in Syria.
Noreen was arrested on Easter Day (16th April 2017) during a security forces operation near Punjab Housing Society, Lahore.
During the skirmish with security forces one man was killed and Noreen and two other suspects were arrested. Two suicide vests and other explosives and weapons were confiscated during the operation which also resulted in injuries to four soldiers. It is believed that the man killed during the raid was the husband of Noreen.
“Noreen Leghari is a woman intelligent enough to be considered for a role as a doctor yet is being described as pliable and immature.
“Miss Leghari’s animosity for Christians would no doubt have led to many deaths including her own, yet a ‘soul searching nation’ have a strong will and desire to show her mercy.
“How many of these same Pakistani citizens would be so forgiving had Miss Legahri planned to bomb a Muslim School?
“If it were Muslims that were targeted by Legahri I am certain many of the campaigners would find her crime too offensive for granting a pardon – Christian lives are ostensibly less valuable in Pakistan.
“This pardon provides one clear message. If you are considered elite in Pakistan you are above the law and are guaranteed impunity.
It is hard to believe the deep-rooted hatred that Miss Leghari had towards Christians that led to her becoming a suicide recruit, has simply vanished. Years down the line I pray we do not discover a series of ‘Shipman’ type deaths of Christians at any hospital she is employed by.
“I asked several Pakistani Christians whether they would trust a doctor who had previously attempted to bomb a Church on Easter Day, to administer care for them. It was no surprise to me that the unanimous response was a resounding no.” (source)
Keep in mind, this is the same Pakistan which routinely arrests, tortures, sentences to long prison terms, and executes Christians over false charges of ‘blaspheming Islam’.
Indeed, it is truly a choice to be a Christian in Pakistan, for just as Islamic theology denies the human dignity of non-Muslims, Christians in Pakistan can be attacked by Muslims on a whim and have little to no means of legal recourse or protection.
Christians in India are facing increased persecution at the hands of pagan Hindu terrorists who out of their hatred for Christ are destroying Churches, killing pastors, and trying to force Christian converts to apostatize back to Hinduism.
In a story coming out of Tamil Nadu, Pastor John Muller was attacked by five Hindus. After threatening to kill him if he continues spreading the Gospel, they burned down his house and his church:
Hard-line Hindus in southern India, upset that members of their caste-based group have become Christians, burned down a church building and the pastor’s home this month, sources said.
After pastor John Muller and his pregnant wife left for a store on May 3, the assailants in Tamil Nadu state’s Attipattu village, Cuddalore District, set fire to their church building and adjoining home, Pastor Muller told Morning Star News.
Three days prior, five hard-line Hindus in their mid-20s had threatened him, he said.
“They said, ‘Don’t stay here – get out of this area, or we will see your end,’” Pastor Muller said. “Recently, some villagers belonging to Vanniyar, a caste-based Hindu sect, came to Christ. The same caste group opposes conversions in the village because they treat Christianity as a religion of lower castes. They don’t want anyone from Vanniyar to convert to Christianity.”
About 40 families attend his worship services, including the Vanniyar, he said.
“The church and my house got destroyed in fire,” Pastor Muller said. “We lost everything. My wife is 26 weeks pregnant. We are expecting our first child. We are homeless. A kind believer is letting us rest in his house during nights for now.”
Shibu Thomas, founder of Persecution Relief, which assists persecuted Christians, confirmed that hard-line Hindus set the structures ablaze.
The young men who allegedly set the fire were identified only as Madhivannan, Manimaaran, Radha Krishnan, Sarangamani and Naveen, a local official told Pastor Muller. All five of the alleged assailants were said to be influenced by Hindu extremist groups.
The pastor said the official told him that he, the village council head, had prior knowledge that the young men were planning to set the fire and tried to deter them, but that he did not notify police due to caste and family loyalties. For the same reason the village head did not tell media and remained unavailable for comment.
On the day of the attack the pastor received a call from a shopkeeper in nearby Chidambaram saying that Vacation Bible School materials he had ordered were ready. When he and his wife went to collect them, he said, the young men set fire to his church building and home.
On his way back to Attipattu, he received a call from a neighbor that the church building and his house had been on fire for more than two hours. Upon arrival he called the fire station in Chidambaram, 17 kilometers (10 miles) away, and firefighters put out the fire.
A First Information Report (FIR) has been filed in Kumaratchi Police Station dated May 3, but there has been no progress in the investigation, Pastor Muller said
“The police took money from the attackers and went on leave,” he said.
Morning Star News attempted to contact the police officer who took the complaint, but she was unavailable for comment on the case and the accusation.
Eight years ago, when the worship center was under construction, 50 people attacked the pastor and told him to stop building in the village, pastor Arun Kumar of a nearby village told Morning Star News.
“They also cut off electricity wiring and created many problems,” Pastor Kumar said.
Pastor Muller said he did not file a complaint at the time.
“I always thought I shouldn’t complain against them to the officials,” he said. “Instead, I wanted to let things go peacefully and do the Lord’s work, but now they’ve destroyed everything.”(source)
We at Shoebat.com and others have hammered at this for years- between Christian apathy, apostasy, self-indulgence, and a refusal to both honor God and have children while allowing millions of Muslims to enter who have children and practice Islam, the West is allowing itself to be conquered by the Muslims without the need for military conquest. Calling European ‘exhausted and sick people,’ he warned that without a massive return to Christ and a rebirth of the family, Europe is living on borrowed time and will be conquered by Muslims by 2047 and Russia by 2067:
Russian Archpriest Dmitri Smirnov, chairman of the Patriarchal Commission on Family Matters and the Protection of Motherhood and Childhood, predicts that Europe with turn Muslim within 30 years, while Russia will turn to Islam in about 50.
According to the Russian Orthodox cleric, Christians will be persecuted and live in semi-underground conditions.
Smirnov explained that Islam will prevail in the West because Muslims are willing to sacrifice themselves in order to fight for their own values, while Westerners are just “exhausted sick people, as good as dead.”
In an interview with Russia’s Soyuz TV earlier this month, the priest said Christian existence in Europe in the future “will be like peas scattered across European countries.”
Christians will not dare stick their necks out, they will congregate in small groups and will be persecuted,” he warned.
He also warned that the process is already underway: in Europe, Christian women are being raped and murdered by Muslims, and the men are unable to protect them. The rapists are sentenced to one-year probation maximum.
“This goes on in today’s Europe, and we are next in line,” Father Dmitri cautioned.
He mentioned that Muhammad has become the most popular name for baby boys in the UK.
Given current trends, Christianity in England is becoming a relic, while Islam will be the religion of the future. By 2020, estimates are that the number of Muslims attending prayers will reach at least 683,000, while the number of Christians attending weekly Mass will drop to 679,000.
Since 2001, 500 London churches of all denominations have been turned into private homes, while 423 new mosques have been established.
In one of his sermons, Smirnov said that “unlike Christians, modern Muslims know God’s will. And as a result, who is closer to God? That is why the future belongs to the Muslims. The future is theirs. They will inhabit the earth. Because today’s Christians have no use for all this.”
On another occasion he pointed to the fact that the “modern Muslim is willing to die for his faith. He wraps himself with dynamite and blows himself up wherever his mullah orders him. He is prepared to sacrifice himself. He is labeled a terrorist. But his goal is not to terrify the world… [they commits acts of terrorism because] they don’t want to have their values corroded. That’s what they are dying for. They are not some ‘terrorists’ coming down from the mountains. Most of them have college education. Yes, they are fanatics. They are willing to sacrifice themselves. And we are exhausted sick people, as good as dead.”(source)
Christians in Iraq, Syria, and throughout the Middle East have suffered gravely at the hands of Islamic terrorists. Now a Muslim cleric has given an ultimatum to Iraq’s Christians- ‘convert to Islam or die’:
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.
An Iraqi judicial source told The New Arab that 180 Christian families filed a lawsuit under grounds that he is “instigating incitement against Christians and disturbing the religious plurality of Iraq”.
Al-Moussawi has responded by sending a delegation from the Waqf to the Babylonian Christian Movement to mediate the lawsuit and the allegations that his comments have mirrored IS rhetoric. (source)
Now while this story certainly is important news, as Muslims do often persecute Christians. However, there is something that gives me concern for this story- the source.
This story seems to have first come out of Alaraby, which is a Middle Eastern News Network based in London and founded in 2014 as a “counter” to Al-Jazeera. Its founder is Azmi Bishara, a “Christian” from Israel with strong connections to the communist party and a host of other groups. What is of particular interest is that he is a direct supporter of the opposition to Syrian President Asad helped to form the “National Coalition For Syrian Revolutionary And Opposition Forces.”
“Syrian opposition?” Does this sound familiar (Hint: ISIS)?
Now I tried to look up this “Sheikh Alaa Al-Moussawi,” but I do not find a terribly large amount of information about him. Indeed, I could not find anything about his life prior to this story, which is the first time that I heard of him. It is as though he just “appeared” out of nowhere and made these statements and has since vanished just like smoke rising into the atmosphere.
What about this “Iraqi Shia Endowment Fund?” I looked around for it online but I could not find it. However, I did find an Iraqi Sunni Endowment Fund.
Now as you look at this story, remember a few other points.
First, Christians in Iraq are being viciously persecuted by ISIS- these are Sunni terrorists, NOT Shias- who are backed by the USA, EU, Turkey, and the Gulf Arab states.
Second, the Shias are allies of not only President Asad and the Christians, but also of the Iranians and the Russians, two countries which America has been attempting to provoke into a military conflict for years.
Third, as we have been pointing out with many other stories, particularly with the “migration crisis” in Europe, the very people who are opposed to the migrants are the same people who are helping them to enter, and the reason for this is that just as the communist uses economic pressure to force social revolution, the national socialist uses race and cultural conflict as his pressure point to force social revolution. All have the same intentions and same end with only their particular method of forcing change to be different.
Fourth, as we have also noted, the persecution of Christians- real or perceived- is being used as a justification to rile people to support particular sides or political parties. The national socialists have been very effective at doing this among Christians in Europe and America. By mentioning and talking about these real events and facts, they present themselves as opposition to the “left,” which tells egregious lies in the face of obvious truth. But what the National Socialist will then do is to say that Nazism is the “solution” to the problems. It is a perfect “bait and switch” technique, where the facts are used as a vehicle to deliver people a conclusion that is a lies.
In light of all these facts, I call this story to be a real-life example of fake news. Make no mistake, I could be wrong, but there are too many questions with this story that one cannot get an answer to and given the context of current world affairs, it is very possible this story is a fake. But why fake it?
Easy. The Shias right now are essentially allies of the Russians in Syria and Iran. I suspect this story is attempting to manipulate the genuine sentiments of Christians seeing fellow brethren being persecuted by Muslims into directing their anger at these and other “Shiite Islamic Terrorists.” This could then be used to drum up support for an invasion/aggressive strike against Iran, a Shiite majority nation, and with that also pull the Russians into a military conflict.
I emphasize that I do not know any of this for sure. However, truth is often times stranger than fiction, and in a world of propaganda, deceit, and and misdirection where facts are used as weapons to draw false conclusions for the benefit of evil, powerful men at the expense of the good and by manipulating the good will of others, one must be exceedingly cautious.
Christian persecution is real, and Islam is truly an anti-Christ religion. However, the fact is that even the good sentiments of people can be manipulated to support evil causes without their knowing. It is all the more reason to be cautious.

Rescue Christians is a charity founded in 2006. The initial mission was two-fold: to educate the public concerning the threat of fundamentalist Islam and terrorism, and to expose government corruption concerning the infiltration of Islamists into our government. This work continues.
In 2009, after a case of false Blasphemy was referred to us from Pakistan we inquired with many organizations that touted themselves as helping the persecuted Christians. After extensive research we discovered to our disappointment that none of these organizations had any interest in actually saving people from their fate. We decided that despite our lack of expertise at that time, it was our duty as Christians and Jews under the command of the Lord to undertake our best efforts to try and save as many Christian (and Jews if necessary) people as possible both from slavery and persecution.
In 6 years we have saved or helped over 12,000 people. In the last three years we have saved over 10,000 slaves which includes providing them new jobs and new places to live, literally changing their lives from persecution and abject poverty to people with a living wage and children who can now go to school.
We have done this with a tiny budget compared to other charities. Our tiny charity has helped more slaves in three years than the combined efforts of other “slave freeing” charities have done in the last 15 years.
The slave problem is huge with about 30 million slaves worldwide of which over three million are Christians. We believe if we can raise the resources we can save most of the Christian slaves and inspire other non-Christian organizations to save their own brethren. We have already inspired the Hindu community to do the same as us in Pakistan.
We employ brave people who risk their own lives to save their brethren and with the financial resources our readers and supporters provide that allows us to do this holy work. On many occasions we have serious security issues to deal with but thanks to G-d all our staff so far have avoided death or serious injury.
Our primary focus is to rescue people, get them out of danger or slavery and to safety. We avoid getting involved in food programs and social services. This is not because we dislike these programs it is because they cost so much money and because of our limited resources we cannot afford to help hundreds of thousands of people a month providing food and shelter. If we move large amounts of people to safety we partner with other larger organizations that can provide these services.
Ideally we like our rescued victims especially in the slave program to be able to get employment and be self-sustaining once they are released. Our charity retains its own private employment agency so once we release the slaves we can get them employed immediately. However in some cases we will provide on a short-term basis individual families food and shelter until permanent status has been achieved, this is usually the case when we deal with individual cases of extreme persecution.
Even if you are not wealthy you can help. For $87 you can save one slave and pay this over 12 months that is only $7.25 a month. To save one family costs about $500 that is only $40 per month. To save 10 families a year is about $5000, which is $400 a month.
