Muslim men, who are members of Boko Haram, have murdered countless Christians, and have recently gone so far as to disembowel a two year old boy named Miracle.
The heretics broke into a Christian home and made a great slaughter. The father of the boy had this to say:
I found out that Miracle Ishaya [2 years old, killed in the attack] had his intestines spilled on his bed as he was shot in his stomach … I was also told by relatives that the Muslim gunmen who attacked our home were eight, and that they wore military camouflage and bullet- proof vests.
Also killed were Bidami Ishaya, 10; Jerry Dalyop, 8; Izine Emeka, 6; and John David, 30.
In just one month Pakistan has had three cases of so-called blasphemy. The Third is the case of Tariq Yousaf and Arif Yousaf who were both arrested in the village Thatha Faqir Ullah.
When the police arrested Arif, his brother Tariq escaped, but he would not be in a state of liberation for long.
Tariq worked part time making firecrackers, and one day, a Muslim named Khurram Shahzed bought some from him, and then complained that the “crackers were made with the Koranic Pages”.
The police, with the greatest indignation for the Holy Cross, swiftly arrested Tariq and viciously beat him. Some Christians and Muslims intervened and pacified the officers, and even Khurram, the man who provoked the arrest, said he forgave him and that if he really did something wrong, God will punish him.
But Khurram’s seeming sympathy was feigned, and just four days later he filed a complaint against Tariq and his brother, and the former found himself yet again in chains.
But who has come to his aid? It was our organization, Rescue Christians, who visited him in prison, and is now his only support. Here is a message from our team on the ground in Pakistan:
We met the superintendent of the jail, regarding Arif yousaf. Arif Yousaf is going through a hard time. When we met him, his face and hands were swelling, whereas the superintendent of the jail denied any sort of torture during his custody.
Yesterday when our lawyers and the family of Arif Yousaf went to meet him, he did not recognize his wife and children and kept silent all the time, even his wife and children were crying but he did not pay any attention to their cry.
We immediately filed the application in the court of Magistrate of Wazirabad for his medical, Doctors have given him a date of 27th December,2013 for proper medical checkup. We tried to get his check up today but due to the unavailability of the specialist we could not get it done.
According to our information he was tortured mentally and physically in the jail. However we have decided to file the protection petition for him as well, and we will submit our request for a change of jail .
When a Christian is thrown into prison, it is not just he who is confined, but Christ as well. Remember what Christ:
I was in prison, and ye came unto me. (Matthew 25:36)
And what does Christ say to those who did not visit or tend to the persecuted in prison?
Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me. Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life. (Matthew 25:45-46)
A horrific massacre of unfathomable cruelty and grisly violence has just taken place by fundamentalist Muslims in the Syrian village of Adra in which innocent people were butchered and children thrown down windows. One survivor recounted:
What is happening in Adra is unthinkable … Children are being slaughtered and thrown out of the windows. But no one is doing anything. The crisis in Syria continues in an environment where there is no international law, including those relating to the paramilitary operations.
Nizar Skif, chairman of the Union of Lawyers in Syria, spoke of reports of “sadism,” and of people being “thrown into the furnaces” and “houses burned with people inside.”
Russia’s Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, while being disturbed by the violence executed in Adra,slammed Western powers for attempting to make ties with the Islamic Front, the jihadist group who committed these crimes:
The Islamic Front has proclaimed quite radical goals, although our western partners have been trying to establish ties with them and describe the front as an “acceptable power”, which possesses influence “on the ground,” …However, there’s some evidence which we consider reliable and which shows that when the front was being created, a possibility of Al-Nusra joining in was discussed. That did not happen only to save the front’s reputation, as Al-Nusra has been on terrorist organizations’ lists in the US and Europe.”
American mediators of the Geneva-2 peace talks on Syria, scheduled for January 22, have actually been holding meetings with the front’s representatives.
Muslims are butchering people, and America is not only indifferent, but is trying to forge alliances with them. How are we as a nation to help the persecuted Christians? We cannot rely on our government, thats for sure, but we, as free individuals, can do something now. Here is a chance where you, the reader, can save the lives of your fellow Christians. Donate now and save Christian lives.
One person said he escaped Adra “under a storm of bullets”, and he described how the murderers came to establish sharia courts and kill government employees:
They had lists of government employees on them … This means they had planned for it beforehand and knew who works in the governmental agencies. They went to the addresses they had on their list, forced the people out and subjected them to the so-called “Sharia trials.” I think that’s what they call it. They sentenced them to death by beheading.
A woman who also escaped the sadistic ambuscade “http://rt.com/news/adra-syria-massacre-witnesses-355/” target=”_blank”>recalled how she witnessed the decapitations of youths as old as twenty:
There was slaughter everywhere The eldest was only 20 years old; he was slaughtered. They were all children. I saw them with my own eyes. They killed fourteen people with a machete. I don’t know if these people were Alawites. I don’t know why they were slaughtered. They grabbed them by their heads and slaughtered them like sheep.
The jihadists entered a bakery and slaughtered everybody inside, as Kinda Shimat, Syria’s Social Affairs Minister, recounted:
Civilians told us that the workers of an Adra bakery were all executed and burned during the first hours of the attack. Whole families were massacred. We do not have an exact estimation of the number because we are unable to get into the town, but the number is high
They went into the police station and killed all of the civilians, and then butchered everyone in a hospital, as one witness said:
They killed everyone at the Adra Ummalia police station … And they killed everyone at the Adra Ummalia hospital where my sister works. She stayed alive only because she didn’t show up for work that day. There are about 200 people at the police station. They are civilians. The militants are hiding among them, using them as a shield to prevent the Army from bombing the police.

Pakistan is blighted by sectarian attacks by Sunni Islamists against the Shia and other minority communities like Christians and Hindus also suffer from militant attacks. At the same time, institutional discrimination is also a major problem for non-Muslims. Therefore, the recent report circulating from Islamabad about a Christian family being held at gunpoint and under the threat of forced conversion by militants is extremely worrying.
The Christian Post reports that “Local police official Abdul Ghafoor reported that the men, all in their 30′s, had broken into the home of a large Christian family and tortured them, forcing them to convert to Islam at gunpoint. The family members tortured by the men were allegedly related to the recently deceased Boota Masih, a 58-year-old gold scavenger who was attacked and stabbed in the Karachi’s Liaquatabad Gold Market earlier in September. Masih had been accused of blasphemy against the prophet Mohammed, and his throat was allegedly slit by a Muslim extremist as policemen and security guards looked on.”
It is reported that the police in Islamabad have arrested three Muslims in connection with the attack. However, often the institutions in Pakistan don’t do enough to stem the tide of religious persecution in this country.
Not surprisingly, the Christian family targeted is now residing in fear and obviously this will spread throughout the local Christian community. After all, Islamists want to rule by fear therefore with such weak institutions to deal with the ongoing crisis, the situation is critical. Also, many militants believe they can attack minorities openly because of the lack of transparency within the legal system.
For many months now there have been plenty of headlines devoted to the unrest in the Middle East, notably in Egypt and Syria. What has been missing, however, is any significant media coverage of the ongoing anti-Christian persecutions in those two countries. The world was just deliberating at the UN-silence. Where is the outrage?
The media seems indifferent or fearful of criticizing the criminal and terrorist activities of Muslim extremists-or journalists get the story plain wrong. Glaring case in point: a recent BBC report, covering the rebel attack on the ancient Syrian Christian village of Maaloula, claimed that “the fighting in Maaloula is the first such attack on a notable Christian community since the start of the uprising. Residents of many Christian villages around Homs and Hama have been fleeing the violence along with members of other communities, but had not up until now been attacked themselves.”
Yet, young Christian girls are being raped and murdered, while Christian churches, monasteries, homes, and workplaces are being systematically destroyed. Syrian Catholic bishops have warned that their country is becoming a “second Iraq” owing to similar patterns of Church attacks and forced expulsion and kidnapping of Christians. During Saddam Hussein’s reign of terror, Iraq’s Christian population plummeted from 1.4 million to fewer than 300,000. Many of those Christian refugees settled in Syria, which was considered, at that time, a more tolerant country.
According to Church sources, the major industrial city of Homs, home to Syria’s largest Christian population, has borne the brunt of violence. Attacks on Christian churches, schools, convents, as well as homes and businesses, have caused a mass exodus. It is estimated that 50,000 Christians, about 90 percent of the Christian population of Homs, have fled to the mountains or have sought refuge in Lebanon. Those left behind cannot find work and earn money to support their families. Food has been scarce and unaffordable. Before the start of the fighting in Syria, the Christian community accounted for some 10 percent of the Syrian population of 22 million.
Tory MP Philip Hollobone has demanded more be done to stop the persecution of Christians across the Middle East and Africa.
Many Coptic Christians have been killed, tortured and raped while churches have been torched, including 100 in Egypt. Last month Taliban suicide bombers killed 85 worshippers at a Christian church in Peshawar, Pakistan.
Mr Hollobone fears Christians in Syria are now under threat of a genocide on the scale of the 1994 Rwandan massacre of 50,000 Tutsis.
He said: “If Muslims were treated in this country as Christians are in Egypt and Syria, there would be international outrage.”
NAIROBI, Kenya — While the smoke that hung over the Westgate Shopping Mall has dissipated, a quiet tension still lingers in the air throughout the capital.
Last month’s attack by al-Shabab militants on a mall frequented by Westerners in the capital city, left at least 67 dead. But the burning of a Christian church in the majority-Muslim city Mombasa just two weeks later suggests the nation is on the precipice of more conflict between Christians and Muslims.
This is dispiriting for many in a country that for years enjoyed relative peace between the two monotheistic religions that dominate the region.
“I am afraid that now, Muslims will attack more and the Christians will arm themselves and fight back,” said Paul Komu, a truck driver and Christian who was driving near Westgate when the attacks occurred.
Kenya is predominantly Christian, with Muslims making up about 11 percent of its population, mostly along the Somali border, its coastal region, and in cities such as Mombasa.
John L. Allen Jr., author of “The Global War on Christians,” wrote that just as Africa is the pacesetter for Christian and Muslim growth, it has also become one of the primary fronts for Christian-Muslim conflict, though not always in Kenya. For years, Kenya has been a refuge for people fleeing strife in other parts of the continent.
But Christian mission agencies such as the Mission Network report incidents of persecution pouring over the Kenyan border with Somalia. Mombasa is a flashpoint for conflict and foreign militants and terror groups have wreaked havoc in the past — as was the case with the 1998 al-Qaida bombing of the U.S. embassy in Nairobi.
To a large extent, day-to-day relations between the Muslims and Christians have been amicable.
Jamal Faroole, a Somali Muslim living in Nairobi, said, “For a long time we have had peace with Christians in this country.”
Likewise, the Rev. David Ongwaye, a Lutheran pastor in Kebirigo, Kenya, said that while there has been more political correctness than practical cooperation, “there was no thought that Muslims were plotting to cause mayhem.”
Now, sentiments have shifted.
“The human mind gets suspicious,” said Faroole. “People were already suspicious of Somali Muslims and now I fear it will only get worse.”
Ongwaye mentioned the targeting of non-Muslims in the mall attack as particularly unsettling. During the siege, the attackers demanded that Muslims identify themselves and leave the scene.
“The incident at Westgate has, in my opinion, rendered Christians more vulnerable to the Muslims and as such any future ‘ecumenism’ will be met with caution. It was very clear that those hostages who would recite the ‘shahada’ were saved from the bullet,” he said, referring to the Muslim profession of faith.
