Just days ago in Egypt, throngs of Islamist butchers, estimated at 3,000, fired rifles and hurled Molotov cocktails at Coptic Christian Churches, homes, and businesses in the Imbaba region near Cairo: twelve Christians were killed by rooftop snipers - 232 injured; three Christian Churches were set aflame to cries of “Allahu Akbar,” while Coptic Christian homes were looted and torched.
Egyptian Islamic authorities did little to stop the rampage. According to eyewitnesses, the Islamic Mob opened fire around 5:30 p.m., but the Military didn’t arrive till 10 p.m., providing ample time for the Islamic Horde to terrorize the Christians. One priest said he, “called everyone, but no one bothered to come. I mourn all those young people who died,” naively adding, “We now must ask for international protection.”
Noting that this attack is unprecedented in scope, Muslim liberal writer, Nabil Sharaf el Din said, “The army is either incapable [of stopping anti-Christian violence] or is an accomplice to the Salafis [fanatical Islam].”
So what triggered this latest bit of Salafi savagery - or, as MSM calls it, “sectarian strife?” Islamists claim that a Christian girl converted to Islam and the Christian Church responded by abducting her and torturing her into renouncing Islam. Hence, their wild rampage was, in their eyes, a “rescue” effort.
This issue of Christian women supposedly converting to Islam only to be kidnapped by Christians is the Islamists’ latest excuse to make Egyptian Christian life a living hell. This justification is especially ironic, since the well-documented reality in Egypt is the opposite: Muslims regularly kidnap and force Christian women to convert to Islam. Indeed, days before the Rampage, thousands of Islamists marched in front of St. Mark Cathedral, Coptic Pope Shenouda’s residence, demanding the “release” of two wives of the Christian clergy, whom the Muhammadan Madmen insist had converted to Islam only because they had been abducted and tormented by the Church to convert to Christianity.
Last week the Christians in Algeria, who are bordered in the northeast by Islamic, Tunisia, in the east by Islamic, Libya, in the west by Islamic, Morocco, in the southwest by Islamic, Western Sahara Mauritania, and Islamic, Mali, the southeast by Islamic, Niger, sent appeals to Christians world-wide for urgent prayer after the Algerian Islamic Police ordered the “closure of all Christian Churches across Algeria . . . once and for all.”
The Algerian Christian Churches received a notice, dated 22 May 2011, from the Islamic High Police Commissioner informing them that a decision had been made to Shut-Down all Christian places of worship throughout the country that are not Designated for religious purposes.
This mandated Shut-Down is a problematic for Algerian Christians, because most Algerian Christian Church buildings have not been officially Designated for religious purposes. Why? Because it is impossible for Christians to obtain registration from the Islamic Authorities, who passed a Law strategically designed to restrict all Religious Activity of non-Muslims.
Islam’s aim is Eradicating Christianity from the face of the Earth!
The Algerian High Commissioner threatened “severe consequences and punishments,” for Christian violation of these orders, which is the typical sway of terror Islam has been using throughout history in dealing with infidels - anyone who does not adhere completely to the teachings of Muhammad.
Using Algeria’s blasphemy law - that by its very nature, can be used to prosecute anyone who does not adhere to the religion of Islam - last week, officials sentenced Siagh Krimo, an Algerian Christian, to five years imprisonment after simply sharing his Christian faith with a neighbor.
In Islam the Qur’an (Muhammad’s writing) is the Constitution. Allah (Islam’s god) is the author of the Constitutional Law (Shari), and the State is the agent to implement Allah’s Law, as chronicled by their prophet Muhammad. In Islam, there is no separation between Church and State (Qur’an, Surah 12:40). Conversion from Islam to Christianity, according to Islamic Shari Law, is punishable by Beheading.
Islam is a Religion of the Sword!
The Algeria Christian Church grew to be very strong in North Africa in the first six centuries after Christ’s resurrection, producing such famous figures as Augustine. Sadly, after the Arab-Muslim invasions, the Christian Church was eliminated entirely and disappeared for over a thousand years.
Since its independence from France in 1962, Algeria has been a secular state with 99% of its of 35.7 million population being Sunni Muslim. Of the 1% left, 60,000 are Christians, and almost all of them are converts from Islam. That small Band Of The Faithful enjoyed six years of relative religious freedom following the end of their civil war in 2000. But in the past six years, the Islamic Authorities have been steadily clamping down and closing Christian Church activities - using Islamic Shari Laws, Regulations and Wild Rampage as the means.
These riots, fires, murders, clampdowns & closures are the latest and most worrying development in what appears to be a systematic campaign by Islamic Authorities to Eradicate Christianity in all of the Mid-East . . . and then the World!
While we, the American Church, debate sprinkle or dunk Baptism, wine or grape-juice Communion, sugar or chocolate glazed donuts for Church fellowships, our Mid-East Christian Brothers & Sisters are being slaughtered by rabid Islamic Mobs . . . just for believing the Truth.
God help us.
