Suspected Islamofascist militiamen have beheaded a Philippine worker in Libya because he wasn’t a Muslim

A militia in Benghazi, Libya, has beheaded a Filipino construction worker, allegedly after singling him out for being a non-Muslim, the Philippine Department of Foreign Affairs said.

IB Times (h/t Lord K)  Meanwhile, the Philippine government announced Sunday that it had instituted Alert Level 4 in Libya — the highest alert level to be placed on countries experiencing armed conflict — and that it would evacuate 13,000 Filipinos from the country.

The beheading marks the first Filipino death in Libya since the 2011 revolution, according to the department. It is also the first reported beheading in the country since 2011. The construction worker was kidnapped July 15 at a checkpoint in the Gwarsha district of Benghazi. The report comes just two weeks after three Europeans working for an Italian construction company were kidnapped in the western city of Zuwara.

According to Libyan media, the man’s name was Antonio Espares, an employee at Kibra construction company. A department spokesperson told media Monday that the kidnappers demanded a ransom of $160,000. According to Philippine media, the construction company negotiated with the kidnappers for four days. The employee’s remains were found at a hospital on Saturday.

The department said in a statement that all Filipinos in Libya should return home “as soon as possible.” “These events indicate that it is no longer safe for our OFWs (Overseas Filipino Workers ) to remain in Libya. For their own safety, the DFA urges them to immediately contact the Philippine Embassy in Tripoli to register for repatriation,” the statement said.

Libyan protesters hold a demonstration demanding the departure of militias on July 7, 2013, in Tripoli. The protesters thronged Algiers Square in the capital from mid-morning to demand the implementation of a General National Congress order for militias to withdraw from the city.AFP

Apparently they haven’t. AFP

It is unclear which militia in Libya was responsible for the beheading. There are currently dozens of militias operating in the country. The most intense rivalries exist in the northern part of the country where fighting broke out between rival militias at the Tripoli airport last week. Recent violence at the airport killed more than 47 people.

“Beheading is a form of humiliation and intimidation,” Max Abrahms, an expert on terrorism at Northeastern University, said. “It is usually used in sectarian warfare.”

The fighting at Tripoli’s airport is between Islamist-led militias and their more liberal rivals. Renegade general Khalifa Hifter launched an offensive in the eastern part of the country near Benghazi in May and vowed to crush the Islamists.

 47 people had been killed in fighting between militias from Zintan which control the airport and rivals from Misrata for control of the international airport in the capital Tripoli.

Christian pastor who was victim of vicious acid attack by Muslims warns the state of Israel never to trade land for peace with Muslims

Tom Trento interviewed Rev. Umar Mulinde (a former Muslim) who was nearly killed by Muslims in Uganda because of his religion, says that the hatred of Jews is not political, but purely religious, as demonstrated by the Muslim genocide of Christians in Africa and around the Muslim world.

Breitbart  This current battle that “the Jews are fighting over there,” is actually one small component of the fight that the West is engaged in against Islamic jihad. Therefore, it is intellectually and materially essential that all countries and people who hold to the Judeo-Christian values of Western Civilization stand with Israel in her critical defining moment in history.

IRAQ: Christians flee Mosul after ISIS ultimatum to convert or leave

NC

Christians were fleeing Iraq’s jihadist-held city of Mosul en masse Friday after mosques relayed an ultimatum giving them a few hours to leave, the country’s Chaldean patriarch and witnesses said.

Al-Arabiya  “Christian families are on their way to Dohuk and Arbil,” in the neighboring autonomous region of Kurdistan, Patriarch Louis Sako told AFP. “For the first time in the history of Iraq, Mosul is now empty of Christians.”

Witnesses said messages telling Christians to leave the city by Saturday were blared through loudspeakers from the city’s mosques Friday.

quote-submit-to-islam-and-be-safe-or-agree-to-the-payment-of-the-jizya-tax-and-you-and-your-people-khalid-ibn-al-walid-206179A statement dated from last week and purportedly issued by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) jihadist group that took over the city and large swathes of Iraq during a sweeping offensive last month warned Mosul’s Christians they should convert, pay a special tax, leave or face death.

“We were shocked by the distribution of a statement by the Islamic State calling on Christians to convert to Islam, or to pay unspecified tribute, or to leave their city and their homes taking only their clothes and no luggage, and that their homes would then belong to the Islamic State,” Sako said.

The patriarch, who is one of the most senior Christian clerics in Iraq, and residents contacted by AFP said Islamic State militants had in recent days been tagging Christian houses with the letter N for “Nassarah”, the term by which the Koran refers to Christians.

The statement, which was seen by AFP, said “there will be nothing for them but the sword” if Christians reject those conditions.

BANGLADESH: Armed Muslims attack convent, attempt to rape nuns

A majority Muslim South Asian nation is reeling in outrage over an attack upon a convent where men attempted to rape the nuns. Armed men reportedly attacked the convent of PIME, or Pontifical Institute of Foreign Missions nuns in Boldipuku, a village mission in Dinajpur diocese in northern Bangladesh.

2014074302nuns

Catholic  (h/t HPS) The attackers first tied the hands and legs of the mission’s two night watchmen and gagged them in the early morning hours. They then broke down the door of the room where the assistant pastor Father Anselmo Marandy was sleeping. They then raided the convent located in the mission campus. Twelve Muslims have been arrested in connection with the incident.

“It’s unprecedented because nuns are highly respected in Bangladesh,” Bishop Sebastian Tudu of Dinajpur said. The 47-year-old Santal prelate said the nuns were beaten and molested, ending when police arrived.

Three PIME nuns suffered attempted rape and were sent to their provincial house in Dhaka, the national capital where they are trying to overcome the shock and mental suffering.”It’s very sad that the sisters cannot continue to work for the people, but our sisters are no longer safe,” Rosaline Costa, a Catholic human rights activist lamented.

Local Christians are currently living in fear since the attack. Christians form only 0.8 percent of Dinajpur district’s three million people. Muslims account for nearly 77 percent, followed by Hindus 21 percent.

MUSLIMS CELEBRATE RAMADAN by killing more Christians in Kenya

29 people were killed in overnight attacks by terror group al-Shabaab who raided Kenyan coastal village taking aim at residents and targeted police station. (FYI Kenya’s Muslim population is only about 11%)

Islamist al-Shabab gunmen apparently placed a Bible on the back of this man after they killed him during the attack on Hindi village, in Lamu county on the coast of Kenya, in which nine people were killed

Islamist al-Shabab gunmen apparently placed a Bible on the back of this man after they killed him during the attack on Hindi village, in Lamu county on the coast of Kenya, in which nine people were killed

UK Daily Mail  Twenty of the victims were killed in an attack in the Gamba area of Tana River county, where gunmen rushed the police station and freed suspected al-Shabab militants. Another nine were killed in a separate raid at the Hindi trading centre in neighbouring Lamu county, near the town of Mpeketoni where 65 people were killed last month.

The Somali Islamist militant group al-Shabab, which last September attacked the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi, the Kenyan capital, claimed responsibility for the attacks. Mwenda Njoka, a spokesman for the interior ministry, told Reuters: ‘There were two attacks in Lamu and Tana River last night. In Lamu we have nine people dead and in Tana River we have 20. The number could rise.’

article-2682239-1F6D3FCE00000578-494_634x468

Sheikh Abdiasis Abu Musab, al Shabaab’s military operations spokesman, told Reuters in Mogadishu that the Somali group was behind both attacks on Saturday night. It had also said it was responsible for the June raids in Lamu County, around Mpeketoni.

Officials said a group of 10-15 men struck at Hindi, situated nine miles from the town of Lamu, and close to the town of Mpeketoni, which was nearly destroyed in one of the attacks in June, at about 10 pm on Saturday.

‘They went around shooting at people and villages indiscriminately,’ Abdallah Shahasi, the area chief, told Reuters. Al-Shabab announced that at the same time it had broken into the police station at Gamba and freed suspects from the detention cells. A Kenyan police source, who asked not to be named, corroborated that account.

He told Reuters: ‘They killed some of our colleagues and freed Muslim detainees. Some of those freed were linked to the Mpeketoni attacks two weeks ago. ‘We still don’t know how many detainees were freed until we verify with registers at the station.’

The officer said the gunmen got to the police station by car-jacking a truck and killing its three occupants. Five police officers were wounded in the attack and one officer was killed, he said.

AINA  (h/t TROPMOSUL – The Assyrian television channel Ishtar TV is reporting that 5 Assyrians have gone missing in Mosul. Two Chaldean nuns from the Daughters of Mary Order, Sister Miskintah and Sister Utoor Joseph, as well as Hala Salim, Sarah Khoshaba and Aram Sabah have not been heard from for nearly two days.

Sisters Miskintah and Utoor managed an orphanage for girls in Mosul, in the Khazraj neighborhood near Miskintah Church. After Mosul fell to ISIS, the two nuns brought the orphaned girls to the city of Dohuk for safety. The Nuns returned late Saturday to Mosul, accompanied by Hala, Sarah and Aram, to inspect the monastery but there has been no contact with them nor any trace of their whereabouts since then.

It is believed they have been kidnapped by Muslims.

IRAQI CHRISTIANS fear genocide by ISIS, asking U.S. for help

0 1 a aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaairann

One of the last Christian strongholds in Iraq came under attack this week, and its last remaining citizens are making a desperate plea to the U.S. for help.

Breitbart  Until this week, Qaraqosh was a town where Christians from other parts of Iraq could find refuge.  But late Wednesday night, ISIS rebels started shelling Qaraqosh, provoking a mass exodus on Thursday.  According to various reports, anywhere from 10,000 to 50,000 citizens have fled. The Syrian Catholic Archbishop of Mosul, Yohanna Petros Mouche, has remained behind with around 1,000 of the town’s inhabitants who do not have cars or other means of leaving.

Archbishop Mouche has been calling his friends in the United States asking for urgent help, including Bishop Yousif Benham Habash, the Syriac Catholic bishop of Our Lady of Deliverance, in Newark, New Jersey, who is from Qaraqosh.  On Friday morning, June 27th, Archbishop Mouche called Joseph Kassab, a US-based advocate for Iraqi Christians, and told him, “We need something done right now.  The people are frantic.” The town is without water and electricity and all the businesses have been closed down. The Archbishop said they need immediate aid and relief, especially food and water.  They also urgently need protection.

The United States continues to say it cannot put boots on the ground, but short of troops, it could provide arms and intelligence and humanitarian aid. Kassab says the Kurdish Peshmarga militia initially defended the town with a single battalion, but they have since reinforced their numbers with an additional three battalions.

Responding to the Archbishop’s plea for help, Kassab met with a number of members of Congress on Thursday, including Senators Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz.  According to Kassab, they are sympathetic to the plight of Iraq’s Christians, but there has not yet been concrete action, and ultimately it is the administration who must make the decision to act. “We have heard a lot of lip service,” Kassab said.  “It is time for action.  This is a religious genocide.  We must act now.”

Prior to the Iraq war, Iraq had 450 functioning churches.  Today that number is down to 53. ISIS’s recent attacks are cutting that number down further.  And it is not only Christians who are under attack.  ISIS has been making public announcements in towns they have conquered that anything unIslamic is forbidden, including the religions of the Yazidi, Shabak, Shia Muslims, and Christians, and the Iraqi military is unable to protect the minorities. Human Rights Watch reported on Friday, June 27th, that photographs and satellite images indicate that ISIS executed nearly two hundred men in the days after seizing Tikrit on June 11th.  ISIS themselves on a now defunct twitter feed claimed to have executed 1,700 Iraqi troops.

UGANDA: 12-year-old Christian daughter of ex-Muslim strangled to death by Muslims

Hassan Muwanguzi, nearly poisoned to death earlier this year in Uganda by Muslim relatives, did not expect the Muslim extremists who threatened to kill him on June 16 to murder his 12-year-old daughter.

Morningstar News  Muwanguzi did not recognize the four men who appeared at his door that evening and forced their way into his home in Katira, outside Mbale in eastern Uganda, with one shouting, “Today we shall kill you – you have been a trouble-maker and are not respecting our prophet’s religion.”

dawi_Death_for_Apostasy450x450-vi

A former Muslim sheikh who converted to Christianity in 2003, Muwanguzi knew that Muslims are taught to spare females in attack, especially one as young as the daughter in his sitting room. He rushed to lock himself in another room. His wife and other children were not at home. He heard the cries of his daughter, Grace Baruka, as they began strangling her, and when he came out of the room’s doorway that opened to the sitting room, they seized him, he told Morning Star News.

“They hit me with a blunt object, and I fell down,” he said. “I just woke up and saw neighbors surrounding me while wailing, saying that my daughter is in critical condition.” The neighbors had taken Grace to a clinic in Katira, but upon arrival she was declared dead, an area church leader told Morning Star News.

NoCompulsioninReligion1-vi

Muwanguzi, who lost his first wife and job as a schoolteacher shortly after his conversion, was hospitalized on March 31 in Mbale after a Muslim aunt who called a family gathering in Kadimukoli village, Budaka District, allegedly put insecticide in his tea as relatives were upset at his conversion to Christianity. He has received advanced treatment for the poisoning and has largely recovered, but the toxicity can last for months.

“I am regretting why I survived the poisoning,” he said, weeping. “God could have allowed me to die. My daughter has died, and I am now mourning for her death as well have pain all over my body.”

Muwanguzi, who remarried and has three surviving children, has fled the area with his family. “Will my wife handle all these struggles?” he said. “It was better for me to die than to be alive seeing all these problems. I feel abandoned.” Muwanguzi suspects the attackers could be related to Muslims who opposed the Christian school he started in the predominantly Muslim area.

AnInterpretationofIslam-vi

Following his conversion in his early 20s in 2003, Muwanguzi’s family immediately kicked him out of their home, and enraged Muslims beat him, he said. His first wife left him that same year, and he lost his job as a teacher at Nankodo Islamic School, near Pallisa. Even so, he opened a Christian school, Grace International Nursery and Primary School, at Kajoko, Kibuku District, 27 kilometers (16 miles) from Mbale; the area’s population of 5,000 people is predominantly Muslim.

Incensed by his boldness, an Islamic teacher, sheikh Hassan Abdalla, in 2011 filed a false charge that Muwanguzi had “defiled” his daughter, a minor. Together with his Muslim countrymen, Abdalla filed a case at the chief magistrate’s court in Pallisa-Kalaki, and a warrant for Muwanguzi’s arrest was issued on April 1, 2011.

262509705_188925824296448352_n-vi

Muwanguzi was arrested and released on bail after nearly a month. He said the Muslims filed the false charges because he had opened the Christian school against the wishes of the Muslim majority. More than a quarter of the school’s 235 children came from Muslim homes, with the consent of their Muslim parents, he said.

Area Muslims resorted to witchcraft to try to get him to close down the school, and when that didn’t work, they tried to discourage parents from bringing their children to the school, accusing it of converting Muslim children to Christianity by teaching Christian Religious Education, he said.

religions

When his accuser failed to appear in court on multiple occasions, the judge finally found the accusations were false and dropped the case in May 2012, he said. A few weeks after he was acquitted, the owner of the land denied having sold it to Muwanguzi, and he received a court order to close down the school. In June 2012, he said, Muslim sheikhs, imams and relatives burned down his house for having converted to Christianity.

Uganda’s constitution and other laws provide for religious freedom, including the right to propagate one’s faith and convert from one faith to another.

REPUBLICAN SENATOR Roy Blunt (R-MO) urges State Dept. to demand release of Meriam Ibrahim, who has been arrested again in Sudan

The ongoing saga of Sudanese Christian Meriam who was re-arrested by Sudanese authorities when she and her U.S. citizen husband and children were at the airport awaiting a flight out of Sudan to the U.S. has the attention of the U.S. Senate.

Sen Blunt also is asking for release of Pastor Saeed Abedini from Iran.

IRAQ: Christian mother and daughter raped by ISIS jihadists for not paying the jiyza (non-Muslimn) tax

quote-submit-to-islam-and-be-safe-or-agree-to-the-payment-of-the-jizya-tax-and-you-and-your-people-khalid-ibn-al-walid-206179

Assyrian International News Agency reported that a mother and daughter in Mosul were raped by ISIS militants because they could not afford to pay a jiyza poll tax levied against non-Muslims.

Examiner  Dr. Sallama Al Khafaji, a member of the Iraq High Commission for Human Rights, told AINA that ISIS began enforcing the tax against Christians in Mosul. When the family told militants they could not afford the tax, three ISIS members reportedly raped the mother and daughter in front of the husband and father who was so traumatized he committed suicide. “The Christians have told me that they cannot pay this tax,” Dr. Al-Khafaji said. “And they say ‘what am I to do, shall I kill myself?’”

On Monday, the Business Standard said that ISIS fighters have told Iraqi families they must hand their daughters to militants in order for them to “cleanse” themselves through sex.

“Last year, a Saudi-based cleric issued a fatwa allowing jihadists to rape women in Syria,” the Business Standard said. The practice has now spread to Iraq. Those who disobey are reportedly being warned they will be beaten and killed.

The UK Independent said Tuesday militants are even going door-to-door in some places looking for unmarried women.

journalists isis

“I told them that there were only two women in the house and both were married,” Abu Lahid told the Independent. “They said that many of their mujahedin [fighters] were unmarried and wanted a wife. They insisted on coming into my house to look at the women’s ID cards [which in Iraq show marital status].”

The reports are just the latest documented atrocities coming out of the area. One Arabic-language website, for example, claimed that four Christian women were shot and killed by ISIS militants for not wearing veils.

Last Thursday, Fox News reported on what it called the “religious cleansing” of Christians from Iraqi areas controlled by ISIS. According to Fox, an estimated 150,000 people have fled Mosul and their ancient Christian heartland — some, Fox added, “for the second time in a decade.”

A post at Redstate notes that thanks to Obama’s lack of action, defeat is being snatched from the jaws of victory and Christians are paying the price with their lives.

OMG! One day after being released from prison, Sudanese Christian woman re-arrested for trying to leave Sudan

A mother who was freed from death row for refusing to renounce Christianity has been re-arrested just one day later while trying to leave Sudan. Meriam Ibrahim, 27, was very happy after an appeals court yesterday overturned a death sentence imposed because she married a Christian man and allegedly turned her back on Islam. But lawyer Elshareef Ali Mohammed said a group of 50 security force personnel arrested her and family members during an angry confrontation at Khartoum’s airport today.

NBC  (h/t DNR) Mohammed, who said he was at the airport with Ibrahim, said no reason was given for her re-arrest. Britain’s Foreign Office said it had received confirmation that Sudan’s National Intelligence and Security Service had detained Ibrahim and her husband Daniel Wani, an American citizen who told the Guardian following his wife’s release that he hoped they could start a new life in the U.S.

The couple were with their two children at the time of their detention, including the baby Ibrahim gave birth to while she was on death row in a women’s prison. When contacted by NBC News, a State Department spokeswoman said Ibrahim was “safe,” but declined to say where due to security reasons.

FREE AT LAST! Sudanese Christian woman who was sentenced to hang for refusing to convert to Islam has finally been released

Smiling at the camera as she celebrates her freedom, this is the first picture of Meriam Ibrahim since she was suddenly released from prison in Sudan on Monday. The mother-of-two is seen holding her baby daughter Maya who was born in prison whilst she was shackled to the ground. Her son is in yellow shirt.

UK DAILY MAIL  After international pressure (not from the U.S.), a government official said on May 31 that Sudanese officials were working to release her.

Safwan Abobaker, an activist who works with religious campaign group Hardwired, which provided MailOnline with the picture, said: ‘It’s a happy day’. The photo was taken at the safe house where Meriam is now hiding out.

The 27-year-old woman was sentenced to death last month for converting from Islam to Christianity (Even though she did not convert as her mother was a Christian and she was raised Christian after her father abandoned the family). The case triggered an international outcry. She gave birth to a baby daughter while in prison. Ms Ibrahim is married to Daniel Wani, an American citizen who is Christian.

‘The appeal court ordered the release of Mariam Yahya and the cancellation of the (previous) court ruling,’ Sudan’s SUNA news agency said. The couple’s 21-month-old son was also held in prison with Ms Ibrahim and newborn Maya.

Ms Ibrahim’s lawyer Mohaned Mostafa said after her release she had been sent ‘to an unknown house to stay at for her protection and security.’ ‘Her family had been threatened before and we are worried that someone might try to harm her,’ he said.

In an interview with CNN earlier this month, Al Samani Al Hadi Mohamed Abdullah said that if Meriam was killed, it would have ‘enforced God’s word’ because she broke sharia. He has threatened to kill her himself if she was not executed.

IRAQ: Christians threatened with beheadings by ISIS terrorists

Christians are being told that their churches will be burned if they dare to open. Christians must either pay the dhimmi (non-Muslim slave) tax or be beheaded.

CBN  Throughout its Iraq campaign, ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) has targeted Christians. Many fled to the relative safety of Kurdish Iraq, but most still fear the wrath of the world’s most brutal jihadist group. About 25,000 Christians have fled to Bartilla, but CBN News couldn’t find one who would talk on camera out of fear of retribution. But conditions in Bartilla are abysmal. There’s no water because ISIS turned it off.  And there’s no electricity because Prime Minister Maliki’s government turned that off.

IRAQ: ISIS burning down churches, persecuting Christians in Mosul

While hundreds of thousands of Iraqis are affected by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’s takeover of key cities including the Ninawa (Nineveh) provincial capital, Mosul, minority Christians – some of whom trace their origins to the earliest years of Christianity – are among those with the most to lose.

A-member-of-Ussud-Al-Anbar-Anbar-Lions-a-group-affiliated-to-the-Islamic-State-of-Iraq-and-the-Levant-AFP

CNS News  As the jihadists swept into Mosul this week, they reportedly looted and torched churches, raised their black “there is no god but Allah” flags and started demanding that women wear the Islamic veil.

The Assyrian International News Agency identified two of the targeted churches as the Chaldean Church of the Holy Spirit, and an Armenian church under construction, which it said was bombed. Barnabas Fund, an aid agency that supports minority Christians in Islamic countries, said the attacks on churches were “a clear statement from ISIS that they are no longer welcome in Mosul.”

Iraq Christian Flight

“It is feared that this latest exodus could be the final death knell for the Christians of Iraq,” said Barnabas international director Patrick Sookdheo. “Having previously sought refuge in Syria, this is no longer an option, and as ISIS violence threatens the stability of the wider region, Christians have very few places of safety to which to run.”

An Iraq-based representative of the religious freedom advocacy group Open Doors sounded a similar warning. “The ISIS terrorists want to make Iraq a ‘Muslim only’ nation and as a result they want all Christians out,” Open Doors USA President/CEO Dr. David Curry said in a statement.

“The situation for Christians has deteriorated each year over the past 10 years. Iraqi Christians have faced kidnappings, threats and even death for being followers of Jesus. And they have little faith in their government to provide security as we see in the tragedy unfolding this week.”
