Palestinian Church forced out of East Jerusalem because of Muslim intimidation, persecution, and harassment

churchvandalizedSeven years of harassment and attacks by Muslims have finally forced a Palestinian church in East Jerusalem out of their building, church leaders said. The congregation of Calvary Baptist Church, under Holy Land Missions, moved out of their building in the Shofat area of Jerusalem in July after Islamists threatened their landlord. They are looking for a safe, permanent place to meet.

imagesMorning Star News  (h/t Susan K) Pastor Steven Khoury said he was emotionally torn when he handed over the keys. The persecution was difficult but had also been a catalyst for spiritual development, he said. “It was very emotional, because a lot of our people really started to grow there,” he said. “Most of the growth happened in Shofat because of the persecution.”

The persecution started almost immediately after the congregation moved into the building in a predominantly Muslim area in 2007. Within 10 days of starting meetings and worship services, a Muslim who lived close to the church building attacked a member with a knife. Then someone tried to set the building on fire, likely with a Molotov cocktail, Khoury said. “It only burned a few of our playground sets and didn’t reach the building,” he said.

Next came the vandalism – first cars parked at the church building were damaged, then the property, and finally there were physical attacks on children coming to church gatherings. “These were all spread out over a two- or three-year period, to let us know that we were not welcome there,” Khoury said.

When the local government accepted a request in late 2008 to put up a road sign identifying the location of the church building, things “really escalated,” Khoury said. “When we did that, it took everything to the next level. The landlords were now being threatened. The landlords were being told, ‘How dare you do this, this is a disgrace to Islam. If you don’t do anything about this, we will.’”

Eventually the landlord succumbed to the pressure, and the 110-member congregation had to leave the building. The departure last month was not the first time Muslims angry about their activities have forced the Jerusalem congregation to leave a building they were using for ministry. It has happened twice before.

In 2006, Holy Land Missions had to leave a building in the Beit Hanina area of East Jerusalem, which, like Shofat, is a Muslim-majority area. In 2004, when the group rented the building, church vehicles were vandalized, a sign identifying the church was torn down twice and the building was subjected to repeated vandalism and break-ins, Khoury said. By comparison, Khoury doesn’t remember any other building near the church property being vandalized.

Church administrator Hany Khayo said persecution has been constant “I have been here since 2004, and every day we have a story,” Khayo said. “[They persecute us] because we believe in one God, because we believe that Jesus is our Lord and we ask everyone to have God’s love,” Khayo said.

Eventually the landlord of the Beit Hanina building began receiving threats from his fellow Muslims, and the church had to leave after only two years.

NIGERIA: Boko Haram Muslim terrorists behead a 6-year-old boy because he was a Christian

imagesThe attack occurred in Attagara, Gwoza district, Borno State – a predominately Christian community, according to Voice of the Martyrs. Over 100 Islamic terrorists descended upon the village, slaughtering men, women, and children.

Christian Today  Boko Haram has kidnapped and killed Christians and Shiite Muslims across Borno and Yobe States in an increasingly deadly campaign to establish an extremist, Sunni Muslim reign. The assault on Attagara occurred as Sunday church services were beginning, according to Voice of the Martyrs (VOM). Boko Haram slashed the villagers with machetes, and fired upon them with assault weapons.

One villager, Sawaltha Wandala, was arriving at church for the second service when he saw children being massacred. One six-year-old boy had been slashed and thrown into a ditch, but he was alive. Wandala picked him up and was carrying him to a hospital in Cameroon, when he was stopped by five of the militants.

The men reportedly took the child from Wandala’s arms and beheaded him, then began beating the 55-year-old with tree branches. After striking him in the head with a rock, they left him for dead.

Two days later the militants returned, attacking Attagara and other villages in Gwoza. VOM reported that approximately 200 people were killed in the two-day assaults.

John Yakuba and his family survived the Attagara attacks and fled to Cameroon, but Yakuba returned to their home to retrieve their animals and some of their belongings. The family faced starvation at a refugee camp, and Yakuba hoped to sell the animals to support them.

Boko Haram members saw Yakuba entering his home, however, and captured him. “We know you’re John,” they said to him, according to VOM. “You must convert to Islam or else you will die a painful death.” When Yakuba refused to denounce Christ, they tied his arms and legs to a tree, and hacked his hands with a knife.

“Can you become a Muslim now?” the militants asked. “You can kill my body, but not my soul,” Yakubu cried out. The men continued to cut his feet and back with a machete and knife to torture him. “We will show you,” they said. Yakuba’s head was slashed, and an axe was driven into his knee, reaching the bone. He lost consciousness and was left tied to the tree for three days before someone found him, after which he was taken to the hospital in a coma. He survived.

Sorry, guys, Barack Hussein Obama isn’t taking in Iraqi Christian refugees, he only wants Muslims in America

Iraqi Christians are desperate to leave Iraq, where they are being threatened with death if they refuse to convert to Islam. France and Australia have opened their doors to these Christians. America has not.

More than half of Iraq’s Christians have fled their country since the start of the war. Many of them are still not returning home because of sectarian violence targeting Christians. The last official Iraqi census in 1987 showed almost 1.5 million Christians in Iraq. Now, a U.S. State Department report says that number may have dropped to close to one third of that at 500,000. Many Iraqi Christians have now settled in Jordan.

IRAQI CHRISTIANS take up arms to fight against the Islamic State (ISIS)

4688871_1582208-viTired of being slaughtered like sheep and chased from a place they have called home for two millennia, some Christian groups in northern Iraq have decided to take up arms to defend their place in the war-torn country from the terror of ISIS.; ‘Talking about Jesus and peace is not enough,’ they say.

Christian Post  Henry Sarkis, 44, an official with the Assyrian Patriotic Party which is one of several Assyrian political organizations in Iraq, told National Geographic that his party has armed and dispatched 40 of its members to join the Kurdish Peshmerga, the official security force of the Kurdistan Regional Government, in fighting ISIS in Iraq’s northwest.

“We keep talking about Jesus and peace, and now we’ve reached the point where it’s not enough,” Sarkis told National Geographic from his party’s headquarters in Dahuk, Iraq. “The age of waiting for the Peshmerga to take back territory while we sit is over. We took the decision that, with our limited abilities, we will try to participate.”

Sarkis says the mostly symbolic move is the “first wave,” and the group of Christian fighters have taken on the name Dukha, which means “sacrifice” in Assyrian. His party, says Sarkis, bought weapons with money donated by members in the diaspora and they are looking to raise more money to get more arms. Their main focus in the fight, he says, is to secure territory as the Peshmerga advances against ISIS.

Islamic-Ethnic-Cleansing-of-Christians-in-Iraq

Christians taking up arms in Iraq stands in stark contrast to the passive victim profile they have been known for since 2003 and is likely to make them more of a target. Sarkis, however, isn’t worried as he believes embracing a fighting life is much better than accepting a passive death. “We’re being killed in our homes, so why not defend ourselves? Then even if we die, we die with dignity,” he said. “We didn’t want to reach this point — we just want to live in our areas.”

Christians make up less than 1 percent of Iraq’s population, according to the CIA, and their numbers have dwindled from about 1.5 million in 2003 to less than 500,000 today.

In Mosul, which was overrun by ISIS militants in June, Duraid Tobiya, 53, an Assyrian from the city said about 40 of the 8,000 to 10,000 Christians that once lived there still remain. And those that remain barely count. ISIS militants exempted them from an edict to convert to Islam, pay a tax or die after they were found to be too sick, too old or too poor to obey the order.

“I’m from Mosul — this is the first time I’ve been displaced,” said Tobiya. “I lived through everything else that happened in Mosul, but it’s all very different from what’s happening now.”

mosul

Tobiya has no faith in the Peshmerga or the Iraqi Army to protect Christians from ISIS because both forces once abandoned their duty to protect Christians and other minorities from ISIS attacks.

He now only sees two options to the problems Christians face in Iraq: “Either mass emigration or an internationally protected safe zone. We have no other options. We are against emigration, because we are not only the sons of this country but its original inhabitants.”

“We must protect ourselves — and also have international protection,” he said.

How bad is the genocidal Islamic terror state of ISIS? These Muslim savages are beheading, crucifying and burying Christian children alive, creating a Christian Holocaust in the Middle East

OBAMA-FUNDS-ISLAMIC-STATE-600x410

ISIS is now beheading children and crucifying youths in their genocidal war against Christians, Yazidis, and whomever else is standing in the way of the caliphate.

Examiner  As many as 350,000 Christians in Syria, Iraq, and other areas of the Middle-east that have fallen to the army ant-like advance of the Islamist terror group known as ISIS, ISIL, or simply IS – The Islamic State – are in “imminent danger” of being murdered in the most horrific fashion for refusing to renounce their faith in Jesus Christ or convert to the ISIS brand of Islam.

Btav22-CIAAdiGL.jpg-large

The onslaught of the terrorist horde has been so brutal that even the vaunted Kurdish Peshmerga fighters, long extremely capable military allies of the United States in northern Iraq, have been defeated. The city of Qaraqoush, the largest Christian community in Iraq, and four suburbs have fallen to ISIS along with Mosul, Iraq’s second largest city and home to the Mosul dam which has also come under ISIS control.

The UN estimates that up to 50,000 Christians and members of the Yazidi minority, along with Shia and Sufi Muslims, have fled to Mount Sinjar in northwestern Iraq. The mountain is completely surrounded by ISIS terrorists and the terrified civilians have been issued an ultimatum: Convert or die. There have been reports that ISIS has offered to let some Christians live if they paid a religious “jizya” tax, but when they came forward with the money they were robbed and murdered anyway.

kessab-bimbo

In an interview with CNN, Chaldean-American businessman  Mark Arabo tells of entire cities in Northern Iraq where Christians have been evacuated ahead of the most horrifically barbaric ethnic cleansing since the Crusades. Arabo says tens of thousands of Christians have already fallen to the bloody sword of ISIS terrorists. Christian men and boys are crucified and/or beheaded for refusing to convert to Islam; but only after being forced to watch their wives, daughters, and sisters raped and beheaded first.

A Christian Holocaust is in our midst. We are actually calling this a Christian genocide… Day by day, it is getting worse and worse. More children are being beheaded. Mothers are being raped and killed. Fathers are being hung. Right now, 300,000 Christians are fleeing Iraq and living in neighboring cities. They are absolutely killing every Christian they see. This is absolutely a genocide in every sense of the word. They want everyone to convert, and they want sharia law to be the law of the land.

SYRIA: More beheadings of Christians, one a Catholic priest, by al Qaeda-linked terrorist groups in June of 2013 (WARNING: Extremely Graphic)

bloody-knifeRegular BNI readers have seen this, but for all the new people who have found their way to BNI because of the beheading of an American journalist, here are a few you probably missed: Three Christians were beheaded, one of them a Catholic priest, Franciscan Father Francois Murad, now confirmed by the Vatican, whom the terrorists accused of collaborating with the Assad regime.

Catholic.org (h/t Paul P)  This should make it clear to Christians around the world what jihadists are about. Make no mistake. Catholics and Christians around the globe are under dire threat, particularly from the spread of militant Islam. Until the threat is recognized and taken seriously, martyrdoms like this will continue. Apparently Father Murad is the first one beheaded in the below video.

Listen to the “Allahu Akbars” of the cheering crowd of spectators. Families bring their children to watch the gruesome beheadings by al-Qaeda-linked ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra. The dull knife used is a trademark of al-Qaeda.

IRAQ: Exiled Catholic Archbishop of Mosul says, “Our sufferings today are the prelude of those that you, Europeans and Western Christians, will also suffer in the near future”

irak-lettre-1Amel Shimoun Nona (photo right), the Chaldean Catholic archbishop of Mosul, who is now living in exile, warned that his diocese is now run by radical Muslims and that “liberal and democratic principles are worth nothing here,” adding that “Islam does not say that all men are equal,” and if Westerners “do not understand this soon enough, you will become the victims of the enemy you have welcomed into your nations.”

Since taking over Mosul on June 10, ISIS has destroyed, occupied, converted to mosques, converted to ISIS headquarters or shuttered all 45 Christian institutions in Mosul. Here, the cross has been replaced with the flag of jihad

CNS News (h/t Gordon C)  The Chaldean Catholic Church is an Eastern Rite church, under the authority of Pope Francis. In an interview with Corriere della Sera, Archbishop Amel Nona, now living in exile in Erbil, in Kurdistan Iraq, commented on his diocese in Mosul being overrun by radical Islamists.

“Our sufferings today are the prelude of those that you, Europeans and Western Christians, will also suffer in the near future,” said the archbishop.  “I lost my diocese. The physical setting of my apostolate has been occupied by Islamic radicals who want us converted or dead. But my community is still alive.”

“Please, try to understand us,” he said. “Your liberal and democratic principles are worth nothing here. You must consider again our reality in the Middle East, because you are welcoming in your countries an ever growing number of Muslims.”

“Also, you are in danger,” said the archbishop.  “You must take strong and courageous decisions, even at the cost of contradicting your principles.”

“You think all men are equal, but that is not true: Islam does not say that all men are equal,” said Archbishop Nona.  “Your values are not their values. If you do not understand this soon enough, you will become the victims of the enemy you have welcomed in your home.”

The Chaldean Catholic Church traces its roots back to Thomas the Apostle, one of the original 12 apostles with Jesus Christ. The church grew widely between the 9th and 14th centuries in the Middle East. The actual diocese of Mosul was established in 1967, with the main church being St. Paul’s Cathedral, and as an Eastern Rite Church is in communion with the Western Rite Catholic Church, under the authority of Pope Francis.

Islamic State desecrated 45 churches in Mosul, says Christian aid organization

AINA Assyrians leaders in Iraq and in the Diaspora, as well as the Vatican, NGOs and concerned citizens, are calling for military intervention in Iraq to save Assyrians and Yazidis from the ongoing genocide by ISIS. Since capturing Mosul on June 10 ISIS has driven 200,000 Assyrians and 150,000 Yazidis from their homes, killed thousands of Yazidis and Assyrians (also known as Chaldeans and Syriacs), destroyed all churches in Mosul and looted and plundered entire towns and villages that were abandoned by the fleeing Assyrians and Yazidis.

Chaldean Patriarch Louis Sako has called for military intervention. In a statement issued on August 10 the Patriarch says:

FacingExtinction-Assyrians-2009-sm

To summarize the situation of the Christian villages around Mosul up to the borders of Kurdistan Region: the churches are deserted and desecrated; five bishops are out of their bishoprics, the priests and nuns left their missions and institutions leaving everything behind, the families have fled with their children abandoning everything else! The level of disaster is extreme.The position of the American president Obama only to give military assistance to protect Erbil is disappointing. The talks about dividing Iraq are threatening. The Americans are not up to a rapid solution to give hope specifically as they are not going to attack the ISIS in Mosul and in the Nineveh Plain.

iraq-CST-080914-005.JPG

Since capturing Mosul on June 10, ISIS has moved into the Nineveh Plain, attacking Assyrians, Yazidis, Shabaks and Turkmen, destroying religious institutions and killing thousands.

  • There are no Assyrians/Christians remaining in Mosul, all have fled to the north, to Alqosh, Dohuk and other Assyrian villages.
  • All Christian institutions in Mosul (churches, monasteries and cemeteries), numbering 45, have been destroyed, occupied, converted to mosques, converted to ISIS headquarters or shuttered (story).
  • All non-Sunni Muslim groups in Mosul — Shabaks, Yazidis and Turkmen — have been targeted by ISIS. Most have fled.
  • Water and electricity have been cut off by ISIS. The water shortage in the areas surrounding Mosul is now a full-blown crisis. Residents have been forced to dig wells for drinking water. Water tankers are providing some relief.
  • Mosul is now governed under Sharia law.
  • 200,000 Assyrian have fled from Baghdede (Qaraqosh), Bartella, Karamles and dozens of Assyrian villages and towns in the Nineveh Plain north of Mosul.
  • 150,000 Yazidis have fled from Sinjar and Zumar. 40,000 trapped on Shingal mountain. Thousands have died from exposure. Thousands have been killed by ISIS.

20140818021448

The Assyrian Universal Alliance, a worldwide umbrella organization, issued the following statement through its Deputy Secretary General in Australia, Hermiz Shahen:

Hundreds of thousands of Iraqi Assyrians are currently displaced and forced out of their homes and towns. Women, children and the elderly have left their homes and are continually on the move-from city to city, village to village, seeking safety. We are informed by our representatives in the region that the situation continues to go from bad to worse; people are living in great fear and confusion, without any hope for a brighter and better future. Jihadists moved in overnight to claim several Christian towns, forcing tens of thousands of people to flee, having pushed back Kurdish Peshmerga troops, who are stretched thin across several fronts in Iraq.

Islamic-State-IP

Towns of Baghdede (Qaraqosh), Tel Kepe, Bartella, Alqoosh and Karamles have been emptied of their original inhabitants and are now under the control of the militants. As many as 40,000 people from Iraq’s religious minority groups are stranded on Mount Sinjar after seizure of their city by the Islamic State; most of them are members of the Yazidi community.

Accordingly, We call on the International community and the UN Security Council, to support resolutely for military action in Iraq to protect Assyrian Christians and other religious minorities from persecution by brutal Islamic Jihadists.

NIGERIA: Boko Haram terrorists slaughter 1,000 Christians by shooting them, cooking them alive and chopping them up in pieces

fg-gwozahillsMuslims, all belonging to Boko Haram, entered the Christian village of Gwoza and butchered one thousand Christians. Why hasn’t this made the news? They were shot, burned alive, and slashed to death. They were slaughtered with bullets, cooked alive, and hacked to death. Nigerian relations expert Adeniyi Ojutiku received a report from a trusted colleague:

Shoebat  The terrorists seized a number of residents as hostages and killed nine hundred and ninety seven an eye witness whose mother among the women that are burying the … bodies confirmed… The insurgents took over the Emirs (mayor’s) Palace as well as a Government Lodge in Gwoza, and have appointed a replacement for the town’s fleeing Emir. They have hoisted their black flags with Arabic insignia all over Gwoza in a show of their total control of the territory.

Ojutiku received from Nigeria marked a phone call and was told that “an unprecedented emergency request for prayers for the inhabitants of the Christian village of Gwoza… The town has … been under siege of Boko Haram for the past nine days”.

Shoebat.com reported before that the Boko Haram Muslims in this same Christian village killed 100, but now a new report says 1000.

As one report described the slaughter:

Mbitsa, who supports Ojutiku’s grassroots Lift Up Now outreach to Nigeria, is a member of the Church of Christ in Nations on the lower coast of Gwoza, and was away in Maiduguri during the attack. Boko Haram killed Mbitsa’s pastor Musa Ishaya and at least nine members of the Church of the Brethren in the attack, Mbitsa said. He has not heard from many since, as communication towers were destroyed.

“Only my elder brother, I heard from him among my family members,” Mbitsa reported. “Some brethren who escaped to mountains and bush for ten days now; only God knows how they are surviving without food, water, etc. Most of the brethren we communicate and get this information from them, their batteries are down.”

As Boko Haram blocked exit roads from Gwoza and went door to door killing people, Ojutiku said, Nigerian military officials abandoned their weapons and fled, leaving Boko Haram unchallenged.

“Now these weapons have fallen into the hands of the Boko Haram,” Ojutiku said. “A few people were able to escape to the mountainside, just exactly like is happening in northern Iraq. A few people are holding out on the mountains, but most of the people in the village are being slaughtered. There is no communication between Gwoza and other parts of the country.”

“I was told many Nigerian soldiers refused to go and confront Boko Haram, because their wives protested. They felt they were just sending their husbands to an untimely death.”

New reports corroborated Ojutiku’s account. According to AFP, about 300 women and 500 children protested for two days at the gates of a military base in Maiduguri, demanding that their husbands and fathers not be sent to recapture Gwoza, as they did not have proper weapons.

“No weapons for our husbands, no trip to Gwoza or any volatile place,” AFP Aug. 12 quoted Thabita John, one of the protesting wives. “We are tired of burying our loved ones.”

Boko Haram, seeking to establish Sharia law, had killed 4,239 Christians, moderate Muslims, government officials and civilians in attacks targeting religious communities in Northern Nigeria, advocacy group Jubilee Campaign reported July 29. Hundreds of thousands have been driven from their homes.

IRAQ: ISIS bombs Kirkuk, thousands of Christians forced to flee

Thousands of people were forced to flee Kirkuk as the city was left in ruins after an ISIS bombardment on Thursday. Kirkuk was targeted by ISIS militants with the purpose of strengthening their foothold around the Kurdish autonomous region.

ISIS militants are currently extending their control over northern Iraq, looking to seize areas where religious minorities such as Christians and Yezidis have traditionally been established.

ISIS jihadists are systematically beheading Christian children in Iraq

“Christianity in Mosul is dead, and a Christian holocaust is in our midst,” said Mark Arabo, a Californian businessman and Chaldean-American leader. In an interview with CNN’s Jonathan Mann, he called what’s happening in Iraq a “Christian genocide” and said “children are being beheaded, mothers are being raped and killed, and fathers are being hung.”

14065691131961_700

CNS News  “Right now, three thousand Christians are in Iraq fleeing to neighboring cities,” he told Mann. Arabo is calling on the international community to follow France’s lead and offer the Christians of Iraq asylum.

“They are systematically beheading children,” Arabo repeated slowly. “And mothers and fathers. The world hasn’t seen an evil like this for generations.” “There’s actually a park in Mosul where they actually beheaded children and put their heads on a stick… this is crimes against humanity. They are doing the most horrendous, the most heart-breaking crimes that you can think of.”

kessab-bimbo

Mann asked about the ISIS letter sent to Christians in Mosul, demanding that they either convert to Islam, pay a fine or be put to “death by the sword.” “It’s very clear they are killing people, but are Christians managing to escape by paying a fine?” he asked.

LiveLeak-dot-com-3bb_1379478168-syria4.jpg.resized

Arabo reports that after Christians pay the fine, the fighters take the Christian wives and children “and make them their wives – so it’s really convert, or die.” This is a tweet that reportedly shows Yazidi children who escaped the fighters by fleeing to the mountains, but have died from lack of food and water there:

Ezidi Kurdish children are dying of thirst and hunger on Sinjar mountains.

“They are absolutely killing every Christian they see,” Arabo said of ISIS. “This is absolutely a genocide in every sense of the word. They want everyone to convert, and they want sharia law to be the law of the land.”

Where is the moral outrage over the Christians being driven out of Iraq?

The whole world is focused on a few Palestinians being killed because their own leaders put them in harms way. Yet Christians all over the Middle East are being ethnically cleansed, slaughtered, and expelled from their own historic homelands by Muslims, and the media, the UN, and the West remain silent.
