Two Christians Murdered, One Assaulted By Radical Islamists In Nigeria

"Fulani herdsmen have continued to kill innocent Christians in our villages, yet the Nigerian government has not taken proactive measures to end the onslaught."

Two Christians were brutally murdered and one viciously attacked by radical Islamist Fulani herdsmen near the village of Kwall located in the Plateau state in Nigeria.

On June 10, the three friends Ibrahim Weyi, Larry More, and Samuel Weyi were travelling home on a motorcycle after a Sunday worship service at the Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) in the Bassa area when they were ambushed by the Islamic extremists, according to a Morning Star News report.

Ibrahim Weyi and More were hacked to death by machetes while Samuel Weyi remains in critical condition at the Intensive Care Unit in the city of Jos.

A local resident explained, "Fulani herdsmen have continued to kill innocent Christians in our villages, yet the Nigerian government has not taken proactive measures to end the onslaught."

The local authorities have stated that there is an investigation into the brutal murders, but that has not given the Christians any comfort.

Children Murdered in Their Beds: Nigeria Now the Deadliest Place to Be a Christian

Gary lane

July 9 2018

A new wave of attacks by Fulani herdsmen against Christians is leading one international human rights advocate to call on the US Congress to appoint a special envoy to investigate.

"Nigeria is now the deadliest place in the world to be a Christian," explained attorney Emmanuel Ogebe. "What we have is a genocide. They are trying to displace the Christians, they are trying to possess their land and they are trying to impose their religion on the so-called infidels and pagans who they consider Christians to be."

Two weeks ago, 238 people were killed in a village massacre in north-central Nigeria. Six of Ogebe's relatives were among the victims.

Militants Have Slaughtered Hundreds of Nigerian Christians Since February

Christians in the United States have faced persecution for their beliefs over the past few years. Media outlets have done a decent job reporting on the incidents where believers face threats to their religious liberty. But in other parts of the world, Christians are paying for their faith with their lives.

Nigeria is one of the most dangerous countries for Christians, a nation that ranks 12th on Open Doors USA's World Watch List.

Over the past few years, we've heard of the stories of Boko Haram and their terror against Christians, but Nigerian believers are facing an even more recent threat that's not getting the press it deserves.

In one of the most under-reported international stories, militants have killed more than a hundred Christians in Nigeria over the past few weeks. The Fulani militia, a group of traveling herdsmen who happen to practice Islam, has unleashed a series of attacks on Christians in the Nigerian state of Kaduna since February.:snip:

Ad Feedback Pakistan Court Acquits Two Muslims Convicted of Burning Christian Couple to Death

 

(CNSNews.com) – It was one of the most gruesome killings linked to allegations of blasphemy in Pakistan, and now two Muslims convicted of burning alive a young Christian man and his pregnant wife have been acquitted.

Shahzad Masih and his wife Shama were attacked and murdered in Punjab province in 2014 by a Muslim mob enraged by claims that a Qur’an had been desecrated.

Mobilized by announcements over mosque loudspeakers in nearby villages, the mob dragged the couple from a building where they were being held against their will.

Amid cries of “Allahu Akbar” and “kill infidel Christians,” according to eyewitnesses, the assailants beat Shahzad and Shama with clubs before burning them alive in a brick kiln where they worked as indentured laborers. The oldest of their three children, then aged six, witnessed the murder. Relatives reportedly fled the scene with the other two.:snip:

'Break the Cross!' The Jihad on Christianity

A 37-year-old Muslim migrant in Rome was recently arrested for homicide after he stabbed a Christian man in the throat for wearing a crucifix around his neck. “Religious hate” is cited as an “aggravating factor” in the crime.

To be sure, this is hardly the first “religious hate” crime to occur in the context of the cross in Italy. Among others,

          A Muslim boy of African origin picked on, insulted, and eventually beat a 12-year-old girl during school because she too was wearing a crucifix.

  • A Muslim migrant invaded an old church in Venice and attacked its large, 300-year-old cross, breaking off one of its arms, while shouting, “All that is in a church is false!”
  • After a crucifix was destroyed in close proximity to a populated mosque, the area’s mayor said concerning the identity of the culprit(s): “Before we put a show of unity with Muslims, let’s have them begin by respecting our civilization and our culture.”

 

The fact is, Islamic hostility to the cross is an unwavering phenomenon—one that crosses continents and centuries; one that is very much indicative of Islam’s innate hostility to Christianity.:snip:

The War on the Cross

John Hinderaker

June 9, 2019

In numerical terms, Christians are far and away the world’s leading victims of persecution. Pretty much all of that persecution comes at the hands of Muslims. Raymond Ibrahim is one of the few who have labored tirelessly to expose the plight of Christians around the world, usually to an audience, here in the U.S., that seems almost entirely indifferent.

At PJ Media, Ibrahim addresses Islam’s war on the cross as a Christian symbol–a war that was ordered by Mohammed and that continues today:

We have all seen this bumper sticker, and others like it:

Somehow I don’t think the message is being directed to the right audience.

Not Just Muslims..................

Opposition to the Gospel

AGWM Communications

June 7, 2019

“I’m sure I’m going to die very soon,” the pastor said to his wife.

She clinched her fists. Softly but firmly she replied, “Then God must give me a lot of strength to bear it.”

Only a few hours later, his words proved true.

He had planted the church in 1984. After more than three years of arduous work and much persecution, he had seen the struggling congregation grow to about 30 members. Religious and political extremists threatened to destroy the work and kill the pastor. On that Friday, March 25, 1988, they carried out their threat.

That evening, the pastor and his wife shared a meal. Soon afterward, someone approached the house. The pastor went outside while his wife picked up their baby and prepared to follow him. Just as she started toward the door, she heard the gunshot.

Although expressions like “religious extremists” are often applied to Islamic terror groups, and a great deal of opposition to Christianity exists in the Islamic world, this pastor was martyred by Buddhists in his Southern Asia community. Adherents of a religion widely perceived as peaceful were willing to take extreme measures to prevent the gospel from taking root locally. The pastor’s attackers were not successful. His wife continued to lead that church, which became a thriving congregation that witnessed countless miracles and salvation decisions.

Bryan Webb, missionary to Vanuatu and a writer for AGWM Communications, visited Haridwar in 2018.

“We walk out to the top of the steps overlooking the Ganges River and watch the worshippers,” Webb remembers. “The mix is diverse, with well-dressed businessmen, villagers in homespun cloth, young and old, women in traditional dress, and others in jeans and Mickey Mouse T-shirts. Some kneel at the edge and pour out cremated remains of loved ones; others gather sacred water into plastic containers to carry home and pour out on their personal shrines. Family members help a stroke-crippled old man and a handicapped young girl down the steps and into the water. Everyone must get in the water.”

Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism — these religions hold billions of lost people in their grip. But countless local religions are equally opposed to recognizing Jesus Christ as the unique and divine Savior of the world.
