Christians in Africa: "You have three days to go or you will be killed!"


Quote:
Persecution of Christians in the Middle East is now close to "genocide", a UK-commissioned report just revealed. The same threat has also become critical for Christian communities in Africa.

Some say it began in Algeria in the 1990s, when 19 monks, bishops, nuns and other Catholics were killed during the civil war. Since then, in Nigeria, Christian faithful have been massacred in their churches; in Kenya, Christians have been killed in universities; in Libya, Christians have been beheaded on beaches; in Yemen, nuns have been assassinated and in Egypt, massive anti-Christian violence is prompting an exodus. It is the new African archipelago of persecution.

Distressingly, these Christians have been finding themselves in the blind spot of the West: they are "too Christian" to get the Left's attention, but too far away for the Right. Africa's Christians are orphans. They have no "allies", John O'Sullivan writes.

Christian families recently fled the city of Diffa, in Niger, after Boko Haram delivered the message: "You have three days to go or you will be killed!". "There is no Christian anymore in this town", someone reported to the non-governmental organization, the Barnabas Fund. The town, Arbinda, is in Burkina Faso. Numbers are telling: 82 pastors, 1,145 Christians and 151 households have fled from violence in the Muslim-majority nation. Just in the last few weeks, several of the Christian faithful and clergy have been murdered. Jihadists killed six Christians in a Catholic church in the town of Dablo. A pastor was murdered in an attack in Silgadji, Catholic parades have been targeted.

Jihadists apparently want to "cleanse" these areas of Christians -- and they are succeeding. "There is an atmosphere of panic in the town," the mayor of Dablo, Ousmane Zongo, said. "People are holed up in their homes, nothing is going on. The shops and stores are closed. It's practically a ghost town".

In Nigeria, attacks on Christians never stop. The country has become a "war zone for Christians".

"The attacks on Christians are growing more flagrant and more aggressive," Father John Bakeni from the Maiduguri Diocese, northern Nigeria, said. "We consider each day we live in safety a blessing because we do not know what will happen the next day".

"We Christians are at risk of extinction and an attempt is being made to Islamize the whole country because controlling Nigeria means expelling Christians from all of West Africa", said Father Joseph Fidelis Bature, a Catholic priest in the Nigerian diocese of Maiduguri, in the Italian monthly Tempi.

Unfortunately, we Westerners have a short memory. Al Qaeda's first attacks took place in Africa: the bombings against US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. Africa matters for the West. That is why we should take this monstrous new anti-Christian persecution more seriously. "Christianity originated in the Middle East", the Egyptian Coptic Pope Tawadros II said in Germany, where he was inaugurating a new Coptic church in May for his exiled community. "Thus, the displacement or evacuation of Christians from the Middle East is very dangerous for the safety of the region, not only in the Middle East but also in the Mediterranean Sea region. Europe is affected by this, and the Arab countries as well". The West should take much more seriously these appeals from the Eastern Christian leaders...

Fair comment or racism? Award-winning German artist under fire over ‘Islamophobic’ cartoons


Quote:
A German feminist artist who has been honored by a journalist group for her caricatures, is now facing a fiery backlash over a series of “racist” and “Islamophobic” cartoons – many of them relentlessly poking fun at Sharia law.
Franziska Becker’s works have come under the spotlight after the Female Journalists Association (Journalistinnenbund) awarded her a prize for her “keen-witted and sharp-tongued” depiction of men and women. The group hailed Becker as “one of the most prominent, feminism-oriented successful personalities” – but the praise hit a nerve with some Germans.

Criticism began amassing on social media shortly after news of the award broke. Sibel Schick, a contributor to women’s Missy Magazine and TAZ outlet – and, ironically, a self-described pro-choice feminist – was one of the first to post some of Becker’s cartoons which she dubbed “anti-Islam and racist.”

One caricature depicts a kindergarten where children – girls all wearing headscarves – are seen playing with toy "suicide" trucks or hijacked planes. Others are building a mosque and erecting a minaret.

Another one portrays a supposedly Muslim bank employee who tells her non-Muslim client that withdrawing cash is only possible with “a written permission from a husband, a father, a brother or a son.”

There was also a Becker cartoon in which a Muslim policewoman deals with a shoplifter using an axe – a blunt reference to a Sharia provision which prescribes that theft be punished by severing the thief’s hand.

Naturally, there was no shortage of criticism on social media, with users venting anger at both the artist and the journalists’ association.

The journalists’ group, meanwhile, has backtracked on promoting Becker’s award and said that “we take the criticism seriously and are currently discussing it intensively, but at first privately.”

However, those defending Becker pointed out that she isn’t overly obsessed with Islam. Other caricatures that she’s created have been equally critical of Christian preachers and Buddhists, it turns out.

Becker has always been a “super-left, super-feminist cartoonist,” one user wrote, wondering why “this woman is now supposed to be “racist” because she is critical of Islam (like any religion)?”

Twitter users aside, women’s magazine ‘Emma,’ where Becker works as an illustrator and cartoonist, has thrown its weight behind the embattled artist. The magazine publisher insisted that Becker, who has created satirical cartoons about “Islamic fanatics” since as early as 1991 had fallen victim to “a smear campaign and censorship.”

As controversy mounted, Becker spoke out about her stance, telling the media that her satire was directed against violent Islamism, but had nothing to do with Islam as such.

“I am not concerned with the headscarf itself, but with the headscarf as a symbol of the oppression worn by female Islamists and converts,” she argued.

Just remember it's fine to hate on every religion in the world EXCEPT for Islam that moment you are critical of Islam or it's teachings you automatically become a bigot, racist, Islamophobia and any other name that they think will stick on you.

That last one is worth a more detailed telling of the tale:

Quote:
A man has been found guilty of planning a terror attack using a bomb in a remotely-controlled vehicle.

Farhad Salah, 24, was found guilty at Sheffield Crown Court of preparing to commit acts of terrorism.

Jurors heard that Salah posted on social media about using a driverless car in an attack.

But the jury cleared his co-defendant, Chesterfield chip shop owner Andy Star, 32, who was charged with the same offence.

This is the second time Salah and Mr Star have been tried on these charges.

A jury failed to reach verdicts on either man following a trial last year.


Judge Paul Watson QC told Mr Star a decision had been made that he should not face a second retrial and a not guilty verdict was recorded in his case.

He said Mr Star could go free but was informed that he will continue to be detained on immigration matters.

The judge said Salah will be sentenced on July 24.

Prosecutors told the five-week trial that Salah and Mr Star were in the early stages of testing small improvised explosive devices when they were arrested in high-profile raids on their homes in a Sheffield community centre and a Chesterfield fish and chip shop in December 2017.

But Mr Star has always insisted that gunpowder and other items found in his flat above the chip shop were all connected to his long-standing interest in fireworks.

Salah was found guilty on a majority of 10 to 2 after the jury deliberated for almost three days.

When the judge recorded Star's formal acquittal, a woman shouted "Terrorist" loudly from the jury box.

Counter-terror police said Salah was not close to achieving his aim of putting a device in a vehicle but officers believe he was a "very real risk to the safety of the public in the UK".

The raids in Sheffield and Chesterfield happened in the months following the Manchester Arena explosion, the terror attacks on Westminster and London Bridge, and at a time when there were fears that another atrocity was being planned for the Christmas period.

But police said they have never been able to identify Salah's intended target.

Opening the case, prosecutor Anne Whyte QC told the jury: "The intention was to manufacture a device which would be placed in a vehicle but controlled remotely so that no-one had to martyr themselves in the process."

She said that, a week before he was arrested, Salah messaged a contact on Facebook saying: "My only attempt is to find a way to carry out martyrdom operation with cars without driver, everything is perfect only the programme is left ..."

The prosecutor said: "Farhad Salah had decided that improvised explosive devices could be made and used in a way here in the UK that spared his own life preferably but harmed others he considered to be infidels."

The court heard how both defendants are Iraqi nationals.


Salah arrived at Heathrow Airport in December 2014 and applied for asylum. This application had not been determined by the time he was arrested.

Mr Star was arrested in 2008 on suspicion of being an illegal immigrant and later told officials he had arrived in the UK by lorry.

He was given "leave to remain" in 2010 and eventually given refugee status, with "indefinite leave to remain" in February 2016.

At the beginning of the trial, Miss Whyte told the jury that Salah was a supporter of Islamic State (IS), despite him being an Iraqi-Kurd - a nationality usually associated with the fight against the terror group.

Gunpowder, homemade fuses and explosive chemicals were found when Mr Star's Mermaid Fish Bar, in Chesterfield, was raided by armed police and similar items were found in the Fatima Community Centre, in Sheffield, were Salah lived.

Prosecutors told the jury that the items found in the raided premises showed the pair were testing small-scale explosive devices at both locations and the primary "laboratory" was at the chip shop, but Mr Star told police and both his trials that it was just paraphernalia connected with making fireworks.

Salah, of Sheffield, showed no emotion as he was led from the dock.

I think the Ramadanabombathon is over, isn't it?

Thank God (the real one, I mean. :twisted: ):

Quote:
A man living in Sweden was found guilty of physically abusing his wife and children but blamed his actions on being hungry due to Ramadan fasting.

The unidentified man, who lives in the south-west Swedish province of Dalsland, was sentenced to six months in prison after being convicted of five separate counts of assault, Swedish radio broadcaster Sveriges Radio reports.

The man denied culpability, claiming that intense hunger, due to fasting during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, had made it so that he could not control his own actions

He was accused of multiple assaults which included shoving paper into the mouth of his two-year-old daughter and beating her on the hands and feet.

The defence of “Ramadan rage” was also used by another Muslim man in France as part of a case where he was accused of shaking his five-month-old daughter to death last year

The 42-year-old man was said to have been angered by the infant crying and threw her on a hotel bed twice, with the child bouncing off the bed the second time and landing head-first into the floor. The child was later taken to a hospital with a skull fracture and died.

Earlier this year, French business owners in the city of Montpellier went as far as demanding the government provide extra security to their businesses ahead of Ramadan, arguing that they had seen an increase in violence during the holy month for the last four years.

“Ramadan rage” has not been limited to Europe. Within the first three weeks of Ramadan this year, 20 countries saw over 100 jihadist attacks with a death toll of 531 people and another 556 maimed.

JIHADISTS RAPE, STONE CHRISTIAN WOMAN TO DEATH IN SYRIA


Quote:
Islamic terrorists from the Jihadist organization Jabhat al-Nusra stoned to death an Armenian Christian woman living in the Syrian province of Idlib.

Christian and human rights groups reported over the last week that the 60-year-old Suzan Der Kirkour was found dead outside of her village, al-Yaqoubiyeh.

According to the website of International Christian Concern (ICC), “An autopsy revealed that Suzan was tortured and repeatedly raped over an estimated period of nine hours. She was then stoned to death.”

The French Christian humanitarian organization SOS Chrétien’s d’Orient, wrote that “cruel was her ordeal. The reality is just as much… (a) virgin at sixty, she died under the repeated assaults of the jihadists of al-Nusra.”

“The autopsy reveals that Suzan had been subjected to repeated rape since the afternoon of Monday (the 8th) until early Tuesday morning, only hours before her discovery. As a martyr, she is joined in heaven by thousands of Christian brothers, who died in the arena of barbarism,” SOS Chrétien’s d’Orient added.
