ISIS Declares To Muslims In New Video To ‘Hunt Down,
Terrorize, And Slaughter All The Christians Of Egypt’

Andrew Bieszad - February 20, 2017

  Christianity is under attack in Muslim nations in ways not seen for centuries.

   It is nothing short of a genocide as Islamic groups such as ISIS with complicit governments allow these people to commit heinous violence against the Christians without limit, and all the while the Muslims brag about it.

   In a recent story coming out of Egypt, ISIS has encouraged Muslims in a new video to commit genocide against the Christians, vowing to terrorize, hunt down, and destroy every last one of them:

   In a newly released 20-minute video, ISIS’ media wing in Egypt encouraged fellow jihadists to terrorize and kill Christians across the country.

   Around 10% of Egypt’s population identify as Christians and most adhere to the Coptic Orthodox branch of Christianity. The minority is frequently targeted by terror attacks from either ISIS or the Muslim Brotherhood.

Generally, the Copts tend to support the Egyptian Army which has yet to halt the continuous Islamic State raids that plague the Sinai desert. (source)

(ED: Full video was taken down immediately by Youtube)
Part of the video can be viewed on Twitter here: at link

   Several days ago I wrote how in spite of the intentions to want Christians to stay in the Middle East and rebuild their areas, this was simply a pipe dream not based in reality. Christianity in the Middle East has become under intense threat as of late, and even the Christians themselves recognize that their future is at best questionable given the rise in Islamic orthodoxy combines with the improved methods of learning, communication, and more efficient weapons to deal out the same horrific deaths quicker and over larger numbers of people. Whether it is a the hands of a group like ISIS or outright persecution from a central government such as Turkey, the writing is on the wall just like it was for the Christians of Turkey during the Hamidian massacres of 1895 in the years before the great genocide of 1917- Christians in the Middle East are a hated, hunted people who are biding their time until their extermination.

   Right now, we have a choice- either help the Christians of the Middle East as we can to escape to a safe location, or hope they can rebuild their current societies while most likely subjecting them to a fate of torture and death and then wondering what could have been done to stop it.

I heard in Belgrade that not only Muslim brotherhood hate and kill Christian Copts but most Muslim population hate their neighbor Christians.

Egypt's Christians flee terror in north Sinai security void

By BRIAN ROHAN
Associated Press

ISMAILIA, Egypt (AP) -- After Islamic militants barged into his uncle's house, shot him and his son dead, then looted the place and set it on fire, Said Sameh Adel Fawzy knew it was time to leave.

The 35-year-old Christian, who owns a plumbing supply business in Egypt's troubled northern Sinai town of el-Arish, packed up a few belongings and brought his family to the Suez Canal city of Ismailia, joining hundreds of Christians fleeing a spate of sectarian killings last week.

"My cousin went to open the door after he heard knocking," Fawzy said, speaking from a youth hostel where authorities were putting up dozens of families who fled the town. "Masked extremists, terrorists with a pistol, took him inside and shot him in the head," then dragged his screaming mother out to the street half-dressed and killed her husband. The woman, still in shock after the Tuesday night slayings, sat nearby.

 The War on Christians started 2000 years ago on earth.

Jesus Christ Himself told us so.

And ye shall be HATED of all men for my name sake; but he that endureth to the end shall be saved." Matthew 10:22

When we follow Jesus Christ; this world will HATE us.

This WAR will only end when The Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ returns to take what is HIS. and that would be those who are saved.

Now the Satanists are out in the open...and they will not stop.

We as Christians are on Enemy Territory; as Satan is the Power of The Air. and we can see his evilness all over earth.

Jesus explains to us that we will endure hardships for HIM! and we are Soldiers in a WAR!

" Thou therefor endure hardness, as a good Soldier of Jesus Christ."  II Timothy 2:3

We as Christians have a responsibility too be Soldiers in a War that has been raging from the time of Satan's pride/which led him to sin.

Jesus Christ died for our sins! will you fight for HIS NAME?...My clan and I will!!!

‘Vicar Of Baghdad’ Predicts
End Of Christianity In Iraq

DAVID KRAYDEN - 03/23/2017

Anglican Church priest Andrew White says Christians are leaving Iraq at such a rate that the Mideast country could be bereft of believers in the near future.

The “Vicar of Baghdad” told Fox News this week that
the end is near for Christianity in Iraq.


The time has come where it is over, no Christians will be left. Some say Christians should stay to maintain the historical presence, but it has become very difficult. The future for the community is very limited,” White said. “The Christians coming out of Iraq and ISIS areas in the Middle East all say the same thing, there is no way they are ever going back. They have had enough.

Iraq was once an island of Christian influence in a Muslim sea. About 1.4 million Christians lived there 30 years ago. The number dwindled to around 1 million after the fall of Saddam Hussein in 2003, and it’s been downhill ever since, with an estimated 250,000 remaining now.

There is no reason for optimism on the horizon, the canon says.

Quote
“If there is anything I can tell Americans it is that your fellow brothers and sisters are suffering, they are desperate for help,” he said. “And it is not just a matter of praying for peace. They need a lot – food, resources, clothes, everything. They need everything.”

Report:
Gunmen Massacre Coptic Christians in Egypt, Killing at Least 24

BREITBART JERUSALEM - 26 May 2017

CAIRO (AP) — Gunmen opened fire on a bus carrying Coptic Christians south of
the Egyptian capital on Friday, killing 24 people and wounding 25, officials said.


The attack happened while the bus was traveling on the road to the St. Samuel Monastery in the Minya governorate, about 220 kilometers (140 miles) south of Cairo, the health ministry said.

The ministry said there were between eight and 10 attackers dressed in military uniforms, according to witnesses.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, which came on the eve of the holy Muslim month of Ramadan. Egypt has been fighting Islamic State group-linked militants who have waged an insurgency, mainly focused in the volatile north of the Sinai Peninsula but there have been also attacks on the mainland.

Quote
Egypt has seen a wave of attacks on its Christians, including twin suicide bombings in April and another attack in December on a Cairo church that left over 75 people dead and scores wounded. The Islamic State group in Egypt claimed responsibility for them and vowed more attacks.

.... Following the pope’s visit, (Ed: last month) the Islamic State affiliate in Egypt vowed to escalate attacks against Christians, urging Muslims to steer clear of Christian gatherings and western embassies as they are targets of their group’s militants.

In Ramadan Massacre, Egyptian Christians Killed for Refusing to Renounce Their Faith in Jesus
by Thomas D. Williams, Ph.D.
28 May 2017

As more and more details emerge concerning Friday’s Ramadan attack on a busload of Christians on pilgrimage, the more it becomes evident that these 29 martyrs died solely because they were Christians.

Survivors of the attack said that the ten masked Islamic State militants did not merely open fire on the bus full of Christian pilgrims on their way to the Monastery of Saint Samuel the Confesor, but that the victims were made to descend from the bus and asked one by one whether they were Christians before being shot by the assailants.

According to one of the chaplains of the group, Father Rashed, as each pilgrim came off the bus they were asked to renounce their Christian faith and profess belief in Islam, but all of them—even the children—refused. Each was killed in cold blood with a gunshot to the head or the throat.

The U.S. Must Act On The Genocide Of Iraq’s Christians
SEN. MARCO RUBIO - 08/04/2017

retook it from Islamic States militants, Iraq April 9, 2017.
REUTERS/Suhaib Salem

Three years ago this week, disturbing images of women and children fleeing the Islamic State in northern Iraq shocked the world. During the siege of Mt. Sinjar, reports emerged of ISIS militants ruthlessly massacring Yazidi men and kidnapping and enslaving Yazidi women and children. Girls were separated by eye color and sold to ISIS fighters based on their preference. Thousands were trapped on the mountain, desperate for food, water and rescue.

Similarly, Iraq’s ancient Christian community was in the crosshairs as ISIS attempted to establish a caliphate. Days after the Sinjar massacre, ISIS seized Qaraqosh, Iraq’s largest Christian city with a population of 50,000. Fleeing on foot, many could not escape being killed, kidnapped, or forced to convert. Churches and other holy sites that had stood for centuries were bombed, defaced or destroyed, or turned into torture chambers and weapons storehouses. The full measure of human suffering exacted against these innocent people remains incalculable.

This bloodthirsty campaign targeting ethnic and religious minorities was clearly genocide—a term I do not use lightly.
At the time, I and many others urged the Obama Administration to officially recognize the Islamic State’s atrocities for what they were, and then-Secretary of State John Kerry finally did, on March 17, 2016. His declaration that ISIS is “responsible for genocide” against Christians, Yezidis and other religious minorities was only the second time in history that a U.S. secretary of state made a genocide determination—the first being Darfur. Both the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives unanimously passed resolutions denouncing this genocide.

Unfortunately, it is unclear whether the current administration maintains this determination. It is important for Secretary Tillerson to publicly address this issue and clarify the administration’s stance, which my colleagues and I have asked him to do. Even then, words without action will not change the reality on the ground. The Trump Administration must take decisive steps to counter the gravity of the situation: ISIS is seeking to erase thousands of years of history and the people who represent it.

The Bible’s Old Testament is full of references to the ancient cities and towns that comprise modern-day Iraq. Abraham hailed from Ur in southern Iraq. Isaac’s wife Rebekah was from northwest Iraq. The twelve sons of Jacob were all born in Iraq, and the spiritual revival depicted in the book of Jonah occurred in the city of Nineveh, now known as Mosul. Many of the Christians there still speak Aramaic, the language of Jesus, and trace their faith back to the Apostle Thomas. Sadly, their population in Iraq has quickly dwindled from 1.4 million a generation ago to less than 200,000 today.

If the United States fails to take meaningful steps to support these communities, including ensuring their access to humanitarian assistance and the resources they need to rebuild, even more of them will be forced to abandon their ancient homeland. This would be a tragedy on a multitude of levels, and a deathblow to the vision of a diverse, pluralistic, Iraq that respects religious freedom. The State Department has an obligation to ensure “vulnerable and persecuted religious minorities, including victims of genocide” receive humanitarian aid, as Congress directed in the most recent appropriations legislation.

I will continue to press for oversight and accountability in this area, but the Executive Branch must prioritize the issue, rather than allow the inertia of the State Department bureaucracy to dictate the path forward. President Trump should quickly end the exclusion of genocide-targeted minorities from U.S. humanitarian and reconstruction aid. A presidential directive would provide much-needed guidance to State Department and USAID personnel.

I have no doubt that once Governor Sam Brownback is confirmed as ambassador-at-large for international religious freedom, he will be a stalwart advocate on behalf of these beleaguered religious communities.

Additionally, Secretary Tillerson should move swiftly to appoint a special coordinator based in northern Iraq who can directly oversee U.S. assistance and collaborate closely with local partners and civil society groups. The U.S. should not cede this important work to the United Nations Development Fund. Combining these efforts with diplomatic engagement with Iraq’s central government and the Kurdistan Regional Government, we can help guarantee the political and economic rights of these beleaguered communities, as well their return and protection.

President Obama’s misguided foreign policy did real damage to Iraq’s minorities, but these ancient communities could disappear completely on President Trump’s watch if his administration fails to help them.

I would much rather see these 200,000 taken into our Country, paid for and settled, than the garbage from other areas coming here and living on our tax dollars.

Report:
‘Thousands of Christians, Ahmadis, and Hindus’ Fleeing Pakistan to Survive

EDWIN MORA - 17 Jan 2018

Christians and other minorities in Pakistan are bolting away from the predominantly Muslim nation by the “thousands” as Islamabad ignores harassment at the hands of Islamic extremists, reports Asia Times.

Thousands of Christians, Ahmadis, and Hindus are fleeing as the government turns a blind eye to Islamic groups’ harassment of other faiths and beliefs; even atheists have now gone quiet,” notes the news outlet, adding “A closer look at the situation reveals that religious minorities and atheists are at a higher risk than ever.”

The report comes soon after U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration placed Pakistan on a U.S. watchlist for countries of “particular concern” over  “severe violations of religious freedom” after the commander-in-chief blasted Islamabad for harboring jihadists.

“This is only going to get worse,” Ibn Abdur Rehman, secretary-general of the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan, told Asia Times, referring to the persecution of religious minorities.

“The state has surrendered to the radical Islamists and plans
on gradually taking away every last bit of freedom from its citizens.”


Pakistan reportedly uses its controversial anti-blasphemy law, which carries a harsh sentence of life in prison or death, to target religious minorities, namely Christians.

In 2017, a judge in the Islamabad High Court decreed that “blasphemers are terrorists,” reports Asia Times.

“Islamabad’s capitulation to the radical Islamist mob has endangered the Ahmadiyya [Muslim] community, which has been the target of death threats made openly since the party besieged the capital a few months ago,” it adds.

“Minors receiving religious education ... too early in churches would
seriously affect the normal implementation of the education system.”


Chinese Pastors Ordered to Post Signs
on Churches Forbidding Entry to Minors

THOMAS D. WILLIAMS, PH.D. - 9 Feb 2018

As part of its most recent clampdown on Christian churches, Chinese authorities have instructed priests and pastors to post signs on churches barring entry to minors.

The instruction is part of a new set of communist party-controlled regulations on religious activities that went into effect on February 1 and is aimed at preventing children and young people from getting religious instruction or taking an active part in Christian worship.

According to a report Thursday from ucanews, the leading independent Catholic news source in Asia, authorities have begun enforcing the government ban on minors in church in several regions, while forcing a number of Protestant house churches in Henan province to close.

The new regulations are an expansion of bans already tried out in certain regions. As Breitbart News reported last August, communist officials had already issued “notices” to over a hundred churches in Wenzhou, within the largely Christian Zhejiang province, informing Christians that children are no longer permitted to enter any church. The notices stated that minors attempting to enter a church would be turned away at the door, even if accompanied by their parents.

Quote
A priest from Henan province named Father Thomas told ucanews.com that authorities are determined to bring all religious activities under strict government control. “The living space for the church is getting less and less,” he said.

“All religious sites must be registered; no religious activities can be held beyond registered venues; non-registered clergymen are forbidden to host religious liturgies; and party members and minors are prohibited from entering a church,” he said.

CHRISTIANS ARRESTED BECAUSE THE
MUSLIMS THOUGHT THEY SAW THEM PRAY!

"... a religious site not only for Jews and Muslims,
but for Christians as well ... they viewed something
as an infraction and then chose to detain us.”


2 U.S. CONGRESSMEN DETAINED ON TEMPLE MOUNT
Confronted after 1 picked up broken olive twig

Those olive twigs on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem must have amazing power. After all, one American visitor, a U.S. congressman, picked one up and he and a companion congressman were immediately confronted by police and detained. The report comes from JNS.

It identified the members of Congress as Republican Reps. Scott Tipton of Colorado and David B. McKinley of West Virginia.

They visited the Temple Mount, only to be “detained by Israel police after an Islamic Waqf official, which administers the Temple Mount, lodged a complaint against them,” the report said.

Quote
“It appears that they violated some unknown rule when Tipton bent down to pick up a broken olive branch off the ground. His movement seems to have agitated the Waqf official who, apparently believing the congressman was bowing as if in prayer, set off the events that followed.”
