Christians Slaughtered in Muslim Lands; Media, Governments Silent
Although Christians are habitually killed in Muslim countries, as this series attests, the U.S. government rarely condemns the practice or even acknowledges it.
Two of the most tragic Islamic attacks on Christians, killing several women and children, took place in the month of October, one in Syria, another in Egypt.
Massacre in Algeria: “We’re only after the Christians”
The news out of Algeria from the Mali hostage crisis gets more and more disturbing as details become clear about what happened. It appears during the siege the Muslim terrorist group intentionally rounded up Christians for execution.
from Daily Mail:
The IT worker recalled how the Islamists systematically targeted Western employees.
‘The terrorists went to the alarm station, switched off the alarms, and forced the deputy manager to show them where the expats were. They rounded up the expats, making them all wear explosives around their necks while standing in a circle.
‘The attackers were carrying Kalashnikovs and bombs and went throughout the complex, seeking out expats hiding, and forcing them into the circle.’
He said more than 20 British workers – whom the terrorists called ‘kuffar’, meaning non-Muslims – were rounded up.
He added: ‘Us Algerians were rounded up separately and were treated with kindness. We were told that because we were Muslim we would not be killed, and it was only the Christians they were after.
So much for the “religion of peace.” Meanwhile, now that the siege is over and at least 23 hostages (including American citizens) have been murdered, the Obama administration is “seeking a fuller understanding” of what took place.
Syrian rebels beheaded a Christian man and fed his body to dogs, according to a nun who says the West is ignoring atrocities committed by Islamic extremists.
The nun said taxi driver Andrei Arbashe, 38, was kidnapped after his brother was heard complaining that fighters against the ruling regime behaved like bandits.
She said his headless corpse was found by the side of the road, surrounded by hungry dogs. He had recently married and was soon to be a father.
Sister Agnes-Mariam de la Croix said: ‘His only crime was his brother criticised the rebels, accused them of acting like bandits, which is what they are.’
There have been a growing number of accounts of atrocities carried out by rogue elements of the Syrian Free Army, which opposes dictator Bashar al-Assad and is recognised by Britain and the West as the legitimate leadership.
And these are the savages that Obama is throwing his support behind.
Great call as usual, B-Rock!
Notice how the media has been completely silent about Christian persecution in Islamic countries…
Iranian Christian pastor, Yousef Nedarkhani, is currently on death row in prison and being pressured by authorities to renounce his faith.
Oh look, the tolerant and peace loving Islam is at it again! It has been revealed that he converted from Islam to Christianity as a teenager, yet the “authorities” are just now dealing with it. He has been fighting for his life in court, as it has been proposed that he either denounce Christianity or be executed, even though he was never a practicing Muslim anyway. Apparently though, according to the court, he has “Muslim ancestry” so what he is doing is clearly grounds for arrest. Imagine if we lived that way in America…I have family members that were alcoholics, does that mean I need to become one too? I also have current family members that are atheists…does that mean I need to stop believing in God so I don’t violate some unwritten code?
Nedarkhani was arrested in October 2009 and charged with “apostasy”, otherwise known as the “total abandonmentof one’s religion.” His first charge came several years ago when he publically opposed. Christian schoolchildren being taught Islamic fundamentalism in class. What is wrong with that picture?
This, ladies and gentlemen, is what our founding fathers fought against: theocratic government. THIS is what Jefferson meant by separation of church and state, not the oppression of any given religious faith by the state the way liberals (and clearly Islamists in countries like Iran) like to interpret it for Christianity. No religion should be silenced, religious freedom is a basic fundamental right that falls under the first amendment. Yet so is freedom of speech.
I realize that we’re talking about a country governed under Sharia law here. But take a moment to realize that this is what liberals are soft on. When has anyone ever complained about Muslims in America “violating separation of church and state?”Look at our president, giving the Muslim Brotherhood $1.5 billion and condemning even the poorest quality video that was apparently “slandering the prophet of Islam.” Yet he does nothing about the Atheist group in Times Square that put a large “keep the merry, not the myth!” Christmas ad in reference to Jesus, or Piss Christ going back on display in an art museum in New York. If you’re going to take issue with one group condemning religious freedom, you have to apply it to the other side too. I KNOW that if there would have been an ad saying Islam was a myth, Obama would have flipped his lid.
What’s sad is that the left is with him. They are all ever so quick to judge all Christians as “loony Bible thumpers” that “want to take our rights away” but say nothing when something like the Nedarkhani trials happen. My prayers go out to this poor man, as I will pray that God gets him through this alive.
