SUDANESE JUDGE TO PREGNANT WOMAN: 'I SENTENCE YOU TO HANG' FOR BECOMING A CHRISTIAN

 

Rejecting appeals for clemency by Western human rights activists, a judge in Sudan sentenced a 27-year old pregnant Christian mother to death “for apostasy.”

The woman, Mariam Yahia Ibrahim Ishag, brought her punishment of death upon herself, said Judge Abbas Mohammed Al-Khalifa: "We gave you three days to recant but you insist on not returning to Islam."

"I sentence you to be hanged to death." For good measure, Judge Khalifa ordered the woman to be beaten with 100 lashes of the whip before being hung for "adultery."

Ishag appeared to take the verdict in stride when read her sentence in a Khartoum courtroom. Before sentencing was pronounced, an Islamic religious leader allegedly spoke with Ishag in the caged dock trying again to “talk her out” of her “apostasy.”Scissors-32x32.png

U.S. Becomes Chief Enabler of Christian Persecution

 

Human rights organization Open Doors published its 2014 World Watch List in January, highlighting and ranking the top 50 nations that persecute Christians. The overwhelming majority of countries making the list—and nine of the top ten worst offenders—are Muslim, and include nations from among America’s allies (Saudi Arabia, Kuwait) and its contenders (Iran); from among economically rich nations (Qatar) and poor nations (Somalia and Yemen); from among “Islamic republic” nations (Afghanistan), “democracies” (Iraq), and “moderate” nations (Malaysia and Indonesia).

 

 

The report also indicates that every Muslim nation that the U.S. has helped “liberate,” including in the context of the “Arab Spring,” has become significantly worse for Christians and other minorities. Previously moderate Syria is now ranked the third worst nation in the world to be Christian, Iraq fourth, Afghanistan fifth, and Libya 13th. All four receive the worst designation in the ranking process: “extreme persecution.”

 

Three of these countries—Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya—were “liberated” in part thanks to U.S. forces, while in the fourth, Syria, the U.S. is actively sponsoring “freedom fighters” against the regime, many of whom have been responsible for any number of atrocities—including massacres, beheadings, and the crucifixion of Christians and others.Scissors-32x32.png

Murder of American Doctor Underlines Plight of Pakistan’s Religious Minorities
CNSNews.com) – Just days before the State Department is expected to release its annual report on international religious freedom, the dire situation in Pakistan was underscored Monday when a Pakistan-born American physician belonging to a widely-loathed religious minority was gunned down in front of his wife and young son.

Mehdi Ali, a 50 year-old cardiologist based in Lancaster, Ohio, was on a short visit to Pakistan to volunteer at a heart hospital that caters for members of his Ahmadi Muslim minority.

Pakistani media reports cited police spokesmen as saying two gunmen on a motorbike had opened fire as Ali and family members left a cemetery after visiting relatives’ graves in Chenab Nagar, a town in Punjab province that is home to Pakistan’s Ahmadi community.

They said he was shot between nine and 11 times.@

Update: Christian Mom Facing Death for Faith Gives Birth to Baby Girl

 

The mother sentenced to death in Sudan for her Christian faith gave birth to a baby girl in prison today, the Daily Mail reported in an exclusive. Meriam Yahia Ibrahim Ishag, who has spent four months shackled to the floor of a cell, delivered the baby five days early in the hospital wing at Omdurman Federal Women’s Prison in North Khartoum, the Mail reported.

“This is some good news in what has been a terrible ordeal for Meriam,” lawyer Mohaned Mustafa Elnour told the newspaper. “I think they are going to call the baby Maya.”

More members of Congress had been urging the Obama administration to act to rescue Ishag, the wife of an American citizen who was condemned to death in Sudan for refusing to renounce her Christian faith. Her husband, Daniel Wani, says he “doesn’t know” if the State Department is trying to free her.

The couple had been waiting in line for Ishag to win U.S. citizenship through her marriage to Wani, also born in Sudan but now a New Hampshire resident who became a naturalized citizen in 2005.Scissors-32x32.png

Horror in Pakistan: Pregnant Woman Stoned by Family

 

Those looking for the real war on women–as opposed to the one promoted by the American left and their media enablers—should focus their attention on Pakistan and Sudan. In the former nation, a 25-year-old pregnant woman has been stoned to death by members of her own family, with her father dubbing the atrocity an “honor killing.” In the latter nation, a 27-year-old woman has been sentenced to death for refusing to renounce her Christian faith. She was also pregnant, and has given birth while awaiting her sentence to be carried out. The common thread in both cases is as predictable as it is disturbing: the religion of Islam and the endemic mistreatment of women practiced by far too many of its followers.Scissors-32x32.png

Mark Steyn Thinks Obama Could Use Pen, Phone to Free Sudan Mom

Ken McIntyre

May 27, 2014

 

As U.S. officials and bureaucrats depict the wife of an American citizen’s plight in Sudan as outrageous, delicate and complicated, conservative commentator Mark Steyn proposes a bold stroke for President Obama: Use that pen and phone he talks about using in this “year of action” to free her.

 

More specifically, Steyn advises Obama: By executive order, declare Meriam Yahia Ibrahim Ishag an American citizen. Then, call Sudan’s president and demand the immediate release of Ishag, her 20-month-old son and newborn baby girl from a prison in North Khartoum, Sudan.

 

“The president could pick up the phone, [call] the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services and order them to confer U.S .citizenship on Daniel Wani’s wife,” Steyn writes.

 

 

Ishag, who married Wani in 2011 and is in line for a visa to go to America, faces execution for refusing to give up her Christian faith.

Central African Republic: Deadly Church Attack in Central African Republic

5/28/14

 

There have been deadly clashes at a Catholic Church in the Central African Republic. Thousands of people had been seeking refuge in the compound when Muslim fighters attacked with grenades and gunfire.

 

Wednesday's attack happened at the Church of Fatima in the capital Bangui, following clashes in a nearby neighborhood between Muslim and Christian fighters.

 

At least 10 people were killed. The bloodshed is largely blamed on Muslim rebels, who sprayed bullets and hurled grenades at those sheltering in the Church, which was home to thousands of Christians displaced by the country's violence. One of the dead was a 76-year-old priest.

Attack on Indonesian Catholics Stokes Fears of Religious Intolerance As Election Nears

 

CNSNews.com) – An attack by Muslim extremists on a group of Indonesian Catholics holding a home prayer meeting has stoked concerns about religious intolerance ahead of next month’s presidential election in the world’s most populous Muslim nation.

Catholic organizations have urged police to carry out a prompt and effective investigation into the attack Thursday night, when dozens of men in robes, carrying what were described as “bladed weapons,” attacked the home in central Java, Indonesia’s main island, where members of a local parish were meeting to pray.

The owner of the house and six other people were assaulted and injured, along with was a neighboring journalist who tried to take photographs of the incident.Scissors-32x32.png

Kidnapped, Raped, and Forced to Flee: Christian Experiences in Pakistan

 

Posted on June 5, 2014 by Raymond Ibrahim

 

 

 

Editor’s note: The following account was written for RaymondIbrahim.com by an American teacher in the Muslim world.

 

During my recent trip to Thailand, I attended service in a Church where many members of its congregation are Pakistani Christians who have fled religious persecution in their home country. After the service, I was introduced to a young Pakistani woman, Sarah, and her husband, Samuel, who were forced to flee Pakistan because Sarah was an apostate. Since my wife is also a Muslim apostate, I was interested in their story and invited them to my home to hear her account.

taa3cuSUWEGG.jpg

The tragic events that affected Sarah’s life began in the mid-1980s with her mother Rebecca, the daughter of a Christian pastor in the Pakistani province of Punjab. In her late teens, Rebecca was kidnapped by Mohamed, a man with whom she was acquainted. Her father, who suspected Mohamed of being the culprit in his daughter’s disappearance, tried for years to get the police involved, but they refused to intervene because Rebecca’s family was Christian and so of Continue reading → Scissors-32x32.png

Iraq: Christians flee Mosul by the thousands as ISIS rampages, destroys church and seizes monastery
Robert Spencer Jun 14, 2014 at 1:52pm75 Comments

As the global Islamic jihad against Christianity and Christians continues to rage and escalate, will Christian leaders in the West finally wake up to the reality of it? Or will they continue to deceive themselves into thinking that if they keep quiet about it, their “dialogue” with Muslim leaders in the West will finally bear […]

Iraqi Christians flee ISIS-controlled territory

 

Robert Spencer Jun 17, 2014 at 2:46pm

 

Why are they fleeing? The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria wants to create an Islamic state ruled by Sharia, and as every mainstream media reporter in the United States knows, Sharia is entirely benign, humane, and compatible with principles of human rights. So why are they fleeing? Have Iraqi Christians been reading the writings of greasy Islamophobes? Or could it be that they see what Sharia is with their own eyes, and that the mainstream narrative is wrong?

 

“Iraqi Christians flee homes amid militant push,”

 

Associated Press, June 16, 2014:

Over the past decade, Iraqi Christians have fled repeatedly to this ancient mountainside village, seeking refuge from violence, then returning home when the danger eased. Now they are doing it again as Islamic militants rampage across northern Iraq, but this time few say they ever want to go back to their homes.

 

The flight is a new blow to Iraq’s dwindling Christian community, which is almost as old as the religion itself but which has already been devastated since the 2003 U.S.-led invasion Scissors-32x32.png http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/06/iraqi-christians-flee-isis-controlled-territory

ISIS Radical Islamic Terrorists Target Christians in Iraq

ISIS, the worse-than-al Qaeda terrorist group tearing through Iraq, is one of the most heinously brutal terrorist organizations we have ever seen.

Rand Paul: U.S. foreign policy hurting Christians worldwide

 

Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky said Friday that some Republicans are too eager to use the nation’s military might abroad without thinking through the unintended consequences of those actions.

 

Mr. Paul said the GOP must rethink its approach to foreign policy because of the negative blow back against Christians worldwide, pointing out that after the United States helped prop up the Shiite-led government of Iraqi prime minister Nouri al-Maliki that 225,000 Iraqi Christians fled in fear and many of settled in Syria, which is now embroiled in a bloody civil war.

 

“[President] Reagan spoke often of peace through strength,” Mr. Paul said at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s “Road to Majority” conference in Washington. “I fear that some in our nation and some in our party have forgotten the first part of the sentence — that peace should be our goal, even as we build our strength.”

 

“Some in our party have distorted this belief of peace through strength into a misguided belief that we should should protect strength through war,” Mr. Paul said. “Even when we have tried through good intentions to make the world a better place, our actions have often backfired.”Scissors-32x32.png

A Troubling New Report Regarding Christians in an Iraqi City

 

Christians in a northern Iraqi city are reportedly being ordered to pay a tax in return for protection by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

 

A Middle Eastern Christian website and a Lebanese daily reported that Christians have been required to pay $250 per individual who works and $500 per couple. If accurate, the tax would fall in line with past Islamist efforts to impose fines on Christians in the region, a Middle East expert told TheBlaze.

 

In this Sunday, June 15, 2014 photo, Iraqis attend Mass at the Chaldean Church of the Virgin Mary of the Harvest, in al-Qoush, set in the seventh century Saint Hormoz monastery built into a hill overlooking Alqosh, a village of some 6,000 inhabitants about 31 miles north of Mosul, northern Iraq. Dozens of Christian families that fled to this ancient Iraqi village have taken a much-traversed route -- many from their minority community have escaped to Alqosh before, in fear for their lives. This time, few say they want to go back to their homes, seeking safety under the Kurdish forces known as the peshmerga. (AP Photo)

Council of High Commission for Human Rights in Iraq member Salama Al-Khafaji told the Arabic-language Alsumaria News that ISIS had begun imposing the tax, known as “jizya,” on Christians who remained in Mosul after the militant group seized the city earlier this month. The Assyrian International News Agency summarized the report on its English-language website.

 

Al-Khafaji said ISIS “is imposing on Christians a minimum payment of $250, with amount varying depending on the type of work/profession performed by Christian citizens.”Scissors-32x32.png

Christian Churches Occupied, Shia Mosques Destroyed, Nuns and Orphans Kidnapped in Iraq

 

Islamists militants who seized parts of northern and western Iraq last month posted images online Saturday of at least ten shrines and mosques they claim they have destroyed in the province of Nineveh. Photos show bulldozers knocking down Sunni Arab and Sufi shrines and explosives destroying six Shiite mosques.

 

Residents of Mosul, which is the capital of Nineveh, said the militants have also occupied two cathedrals belonging to Chaldean and Orthodox Christians. Crosses on the churches have been replaced by the black flag of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the group which recently declared the establishment of an Islamic caliphate.

On Tuesday, two nuns and three orphans went missing from an orphanage in Mosul. It is believed they have been kidnapped by ISIS militants. On Saturday, a senior Christian leader in Iraq appealed for their release. “We are appealing for scholars in Mosul and tribal sheikhs to help us release two nuns and three orphans,” said Chaldean Patriarch Louis Sako. ”Christians are not party to these events,” Sako added. “We lived together side-by-side (with Muslims) for 14 centuries. We still want to communicate and live together.”Scissors-32x32.png

'Many' killed in attack on Central African Republic church compound

 

Rebel fighters and armed Muslim civilians have killed "many" people in an attack on a church compound in the Central African Republic where thousands of civilians had taken refuge, Catholic Church officials said.

Monday's attack in Bambari, 236 miles northeast of the capital Bangui, came just a day before French Defence Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian was due to visit the town, where a grenade attack injured seven French soldiers last week.

Church officials said fighters from the Seleka rebel movement and armed civilians from the town's Muslim community entered St. Joseph's Cathedral around 3 pm. (1400 GMT).

"We don't have the exact death toll yet, but many people have been killed. As I'm speaking to you, they are still there," the Rev. Jesus Martial Dembele, vicar general for the archdiocese of Bangui, told Reuters.Scissors-32x32.png

n Nigeria, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, and a number of other countries in the region, radical jihadists are literally slaughtering Christians. They are pillaging Christian villages and burning churches.

 

In Nigeria, the radical Islamic terrorist group Boko Haram continued their killing spree,massacring 30 Christians as they worshiped and burning down four churches this past weekend. Experts continue to reiterate that “Christians are one of the explicit targets of Boko Haram.”

 

In Iraq, ISIS terrorists are targeting Christians and destroying churches. There are stories of forced taxes, rape, kidnapping, murder, and other horrendous persecution of Christians by ISIS militants. It’s believed that since 2003, two-thirds of Iraq’s Christian population has fled. Some experts believe the number of Christians there could dwindle to as little as Scissors-32x32.png

Iraqi Christians Told to Convert, Submit, or Die
July 18, 2014

ISIS has ordered all remaining Christians in Mosul convert or pay a “nonbeliever” tax (jiziya)—if they refuse both, they will be killed. CNN reports:


The letters from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, were distributed to leaders of the dwindling Christian minority in the city in recent days.

The message added that ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has agreed to “allow them (Christians who do not agree to convert or pay extra taxes) to evacuate themselves only from the caliphate state” by noon Saturday (5 a.m. ET). After that, the message said, “the only option is the sword.”


ISIS is not a stable political entity—not yet, anyway. But they have enough footholds in places like Mosul to further decimate the Christian population of their country......(Snip)
