Muslim Persecution of Christians: September, 2011

by Raymond Ibrahim – October 12, 2011

An especially busy month in the persecution of Christians in the Muslim world, September also witnessed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton release the Annual Report on International Religious Freedom. Ironically, aside from Iran and Sudan, none of the countries that habitually appears in this series was designated among the “countries of particular concern,” defined by the State Department as countries that are “engaged in or tolerated particularly severe violations of religious freedom.”

Egypt, for instance—which this year alone has seen over fifty Christians killed, their many churches burned or bombed, and their daughters kidnapped and forcibly converted—was not listed as a “country of particular concern,” despite the fact that the U.S. Commission for International Religious Freedom, an independent, bipartisan federal government commission, has recommended that the State Department designate it so.

Hillary Clinton Promises to Save Egypt’s Christians?

by Raymond Ibrahim – October 13, 2011

Logo Middle East Forum Banner

Soon after Sunday’s Maspero massacre, where the Egyptian military slaughtered Christians demonstrating over the destruction of their churches—including by running them over with armored vehicles—some Egyptian media began reporting that U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, having seen enough, declared that the U.S. plans on directly intervening in Egypt.

Of course, Hillary said no such thing. According to Al Ahram:

Islamism’s Predictability

Apostasy, Execution, and Lies

by Raymond Ibrahim – October 6, 2011

As one ponders the fate of Yousef Nadarkhani, the Iranian pastor on death row for refusing to renounce Christianity, it is well to reflect that, for all the talk that Islam is perpetually “misunderstood,” it is actually immensely predictable and consistent; not only do its patterns cross time and space, but their manifestations are often identical.

Asia Bibi tortured by prison officers

by Nasarani ki Himmet – 14 October 2011

According to a Pakistani newspaper, the Express Tribune, Asia Bibi, the poster-victim of Pakistan’s wicked blasphemy laws has been tortured by one of wardens at the Sheikhupura jail where she is imprisoned in solitary confinement awaiting a death sentence for defending her Christian faith. The warden Khadeeja allegedly tortured her after claiming he found ‘prohibited items’ in her cell. Other prison staff watched and did nothing to stop the attack. (Well, she’s only a kuffir Christian, after all…..) Thankfully, it appears that (eventually) the culprit has at least been suspended from duty (for how long, we shall have to see).

Don’t forget to pray for Asia Bibi and also her family, who are being threatened and isolated by Islamic militants.

The forgotten Christians of the East

By Caroline B. Glick – October 10, 2011

It is unclear what either Western governments or Western churches think they are achieving by turning a blind eye to the persecution of Christians in the Muslim world.

On Sunday night, Egyptian Copts staged what was supposed to be a peaceful vigil at Egypt’s state television headquarters in Cairo. The 1,000 Christians represented the ancient Christian community of some 8 million whose presence in Egypt predates the establishment of Islam by several centuries. They gathered in Cairo to protest the recent burning of two churches by Islamic mobs and the rapid escalation of state-supported violent attacks on Christians by Muslim groups since the overthrow of former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak in February.

Like Good Little Dhimmi, West Stays Silent About Coptic Oppression

By Diana West – October 16, 2011

I am looking at a reproduction of an engraving of Jerusalem’s Church of the Holy Sepulcher, said to the be the site of Jesus Christ’s Crucifixion and burial. The church in this image, based on an 1856 photograph, has neither cross nor belfry. It stands in compliance with the Islamic law and traditions of the Ottoman (Turkish) Empire, which ruled Jerusalem at the time.

Facebook, Google, Apple Censoring Religious Speech?

By Stephanie Samuel | Sep. 16 2011

The National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) group sounded the alarm Thursday about new media outlets such as Facebook, Google and Apple, which they say have written policies that violate the fundamental rules of free expression, particularly concerning religious free speech.

The NRB released a report at the National Press Club Thursday analyzing the various content policies of social networking websites. What they found was disturbing: new media platforms Facebook, Apple, Comcast, AT&T and Google have adopted policies to censor lawful viewpoints expressing Christian views or controversial ideas on “hot button issues.” Some platforms, such as Apple’s iTunes App Store and Google’s search engine, have already started to use those policies to remove orthodox Christian viewpoints considered “offensive” or too controversial.

The Battle That Saved the Christian West

by Mariano Navarro on Oct 11th, 2011

What some call “the battle that saved the Christian West” took place 440 years ago October 7th. It is a historical event of such importance — and of such relevance to the struggles of today — that I would be remiss not to mention it. Sadly, a cursory look on-line indicates that few people — save military historians, some traditionalist Catholics and a few rarae aves — seem to know much about it.

At about 11:00 a.m. October 7th in 1571, 300 Ottoman ships from Turkey clashed with a scraggly alliance of European naval armies in the tranquil waters between the Albanian coast and the Peloponnesus. Under the command of the 25-year-old Don Juan of Austria​, the illegitimate son of Charles V and half-brother of Philip II of Spain, some 212 Christian ships from Genoa, Venice and Spain — as well from the Papal States and the Sovereign Military Order of Malta — had formed the “Holy League” to stop the advance of the Ottoman Armada.

Planned hanging of Christian mother in Pakistan highlights need for us to place rights at heart of foreign policy

Turning a blind eye to Islamist oppression in Pakistan and elsewhere is dangerous. Our foreign policy should be based on human rights.

Will James – 06 April 2011

Logo The Commentator Banner

A young woman is going to die, for being different. Her children are going to be orphaned. Her husband made a widower. A community – already living in fear and suffering daily persecution – will be cowed into submission, and learn the true dangers of nonconformity. This is not the description of an Orwellian fiction, nor is it a woeful tale from history. It is a living, breathing reality in our 21st century world.

Aasia Bibi is a peasant from the Punjab region of Pakistan. In June 2009, after collecting water for her and her fellow farm workers, a row broke out. The other workers refused to drink the water Aasia had gathered. It was unclean, because she was different. Aasia denied this, and dared to argue her case. Just because she was different – because her views and her actions didn’t fit into the accepted orthodoxy – didn’t mean that she was unclean.

Asia Bibi gravely ill, fears for her life, after three months in solitary isolation

by Jibran Khan

The Christian sentenced to death for blasphemy has been ill with chicken pox, probably because of the unhygienic conditions of the cell where she is kept. Christians concern for the growing violence against them. Bishop Rufin Anthony: “This Lent we pray for peace in Pakistan. A Pakistan where we can all live freely. ”

Asia Bibi is sick, in solitary confinement, and there are growing concerns for her life. The Christian sentenced to death for blasphemy on false evidence is sick with chicken pox, because of the appallingly unhygienic conditions she is being kept in. The complaint comes from Haroon Barket Masih, president of the Masih Foundation, who today issued a statement: “Asia Bibi was diagnosed with chicken pox, she has been kept in solitary confinement for more than three months. We have expressed concern about her health, because she spends24 hours a day locked in the cell. She needs medical care, hygienic and healthy conditions. She fell ill with chickenpox because of the dirty environment, and being unable to clean her room or bed sheets on which she sleeps. Despite her ill health she spends her time fasting and praying for everyone, she neglects her health and prays for everyone else. She is concerned about the current situation in Pakistan. We are trying to arrange a medical examination, and to ensure acceptable hygienic conditions. Until now she has had no medical care. “

Murder of Shahbaz Bhatti reveals Talibanisation of Pakistan

The constant teaching of hate has brought about the murder of Pakistan’s Minorities Minister Shahbaz Bhatti, says Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali.

By Michael Nazir-Ali – March 2, 2011

Logo Christian Today

I am horrified to learn of the murder of Mr Shahbaz Bhatti, the Minister for Minority Affairs in Pakistan, and the only Christian in the Cabinet. I knew him well and saw him last December when I visited Islamabad.

This is yet another instance of the Talibanisation of the country. Within two months two leading figures in the secular-minded Government have been killed (the Governor of the Punjab, Salman Taseer, was killed a few weeks ago). Extremists are now operating with impunity in every part of the country.

Dystre udsigter for Asia Bibi

Det ser mørkt ud i øjelikket. Guvernøren i Pakista Punjab-provins er blevet dræbt af sin livvagt, fordi han gik ind for opblødning af Pakistans rædselsfulde blasfemilove. Mordet har direkte forbindelse til Asia Bibi, som Salman Taseer gik i forbøn for. BBC skriver:

Logo BBC IconMr Taseer made headlines recently by appealing for the pardon of a Christian woman, Asia Bibi, who had been sentenced to death for allegedly insulting the Prophet Muhammad.

Vores hjemlige Politiken skriver

Viser man sorg efter mordet på Salman Taseer, så risikerer man også at blive ramt, advarer moderate muslimske imamer i Pakistan.

Ifølge Reuters advarer 500 fremtrædende, moderate imamer fra Jamaat-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat Pakistan-gruppen mod at begræde den progressive politikers død. De tilhører Barelvi-retningen inden for sunniislam, der ifølge nyhedsbureauet regnes for at tilhøre den moderate del af islam.

Moderate. Jojo. Reuters og Politiken. Og 500 moderate imamer. Kønt selskab, Politiken positionerer sig i.  Og de mener det:

Who Are the Real Hijackers of Islam?

By Jonah Goldberg | January 7, 2011

For years, we’ve heard how the peaceful religion of Islam has been hijacked by extremists.

What if it’s the other way around? Worse, what if the peaceful hijackers are losing their bid to take over the religion?

Logo AEI 1

That certainly seems to be the case in Pakistan.

Salman Taseer, a popular Pakistani governor, was assassinated this week because he was critical of Pakistan’s blasphemy law.

Specifically, Taseer was supportive of a Christian woman, Asia Bibi, who has been sentenced to death for “insulting Muhammad.”

Repeal Pakistan’s blasphemy law

If Pakistan is serious about freedom of speech its blasphemy law must go

By Michael Nazir-Ali – 13 November 2010

Logo The GuardianAsia Bibi, a 45-year-old mother of five, is the first woman to have been convicted under Pakistan’s notorious blasphemy law. But numerous Christians like her and others have been victims of it, either because they have made a comment which has been construed as critical of the prophet of Islam or as a way of settling property and business disputes. Now she has become the first person to be sentenced to death under it.

Did she blaspheme Muhammad? It seems more likely that she angered her tormentors in a theological discussion about the relative merits of Christianity and Islam. Such debates take place all the time among adherents of different faiths. Whichever it may have been, the law has created intolerable injustice for often powerless people and quite unacceptable restrictions on freedom of speech to which the state of Pakistan is committed.
