The Arab Spring and Christian Persecution

by Joseph Puder on Sep 8th, 2011

While the Western media and governments have been preoccupied with the so called “Arab Spring,” little if any attention has been paid to the increased persecution of Christians in the Muslim Middle East.

Logo FrontPageMagazine

Throughout the region, Christians have been targeted by Muslim mobs killing innocent bystanders, burning churches, and destroying Christian properties. Interviewed by The National on June 19, 2011, Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury declared that the Arab Spring is posing a threat to Christian minorities throughout the Middle East.  He added that “extremists were filling vacuums left by ousting of autocratic regimes,” and “leading to Copts being targeted in Egypt.”  In Syria, Archbishop Williams warned, “tensions between Christian communities and Muslim majorities were reaching breaking point.”  And, he added that Christians in northern Iraq had been subjected to a form of “ethnic cleansing.”  The archbishop made his comments in an interview with BBC radio on August 30, during which he said that even in Bethlehem, Christ’s birthplace, the once-majority Christian population had now become a “marginalized minority.”

Postal workers refuse to deliver Bible recordings because the CDs are ‘offensive’

9th September 2011

Postal workers refused to deliver CDs of Bible readings after deciding they were ‘offensive material’.

Several churches had paid for discs with recordings of St Mark’s Gospel to be produced to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible.

They were due to be delivered to all households on the Channel Island of Jersey, but church leaders were stunned when they were told postal workers would not handle the 45,000 CDs.

Muslims attack Afghan convert with boiling water and acid

07 September 2011

An Afghan convert to Christianity fears for his life after being attacked with boiling water and acid by Muslims at a centre for asylum seekers.

“Ali” was targeted by fellow asylum seekers at an immigration centre in Norway after they discovered that he had converted to Christianity. He said:

De norske myndigheder bragte den sårede, livstruede mand tilbage til asylcenteret, hvor bødlerne ventede. Naturligvis. Man er vel norsk, ikke?  Mere HER hos Barnabas Fund.

Why ‘Christian’ Persecution?

by Raymond Ibrahim – September 9, 2011

Some are asking why my new monthly series, “Muslim Persecution of Christians,” wherein I collate and assess some of the atrocities committed by Muslims against Christians, does not include the persecution of other religious minority groups; others are suggesting I broaden my scope to include all minorities, for instance, homosexuals.

Of course other minority groups—essentially any religion other than Islam (or even the wrong kind of Islam, e.g., Shi’ism, Sufism)—experience persecution in the Muslim world. Accordingly, others qualified in the particulars of the various religions and civilizations persecuted by Islam are encouraged to collate and comment on them, monthly or otherwise.

Muslims Blockade Christian Village in Egypt, Demand Demolition of Church

By Mary Abdelmassih – September 9, 2011

Christians in the Upper Egyptian village of Elmarinab in Edfu, Aswan province, have been forbidden to leave their homes or buy food until they remove the dome of St. George’s Church, which was rebuilt in its previous location. Village Muslims, backed by Muslim Salafists from neighboring villages, have threatened to demolish the church on Friday September 9 after prayers and use it as a mosque.

Despite the presence of security forces, Muslims have blocked the roads to the village, refusing passage of any Christians under any circumstance.

OIC states call for religious tolerance in Europe – yet persecute Christians

18 August 2011

Logo Barnabas Fund

In a press statement issued on 25 July 2011, the Secretary General of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC, formerly known as the Organisation of the Islamic Conference), Professor Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, expressed disquiet at the reported reasons for the brutal massacre of over 90 young people in Norway by Anders Breivik two days earlier. He was especially concerned that the perpetrator was a person consumed by hatred and intolerance of religious diversity and multiculturalism. Professor Ihsanoglu stated that the OIC had always warned against intolerance, incitement to hatred on religious grounds, and the campaign against cultural diversity being carried on by right-wing politicians in Europe. The OIC, he said, had always been opposed to intolerance and discrimination based on religion. The massacre in Norway vindicated the OIC’s anxiety at the growth of hatred and intolerance in Europe, which threatened the multicultural fabric of society.

Reports of Christians fleeing for safety, violent attacks against opponents and the forced veiling of women are coming from Tunisia, raising fears that Islamist extremists are hijacking the revolution.

Christians who have sought to take advantage of the promise of greater freedom in post-Ben Ali Tunisia to share their faith have been forced to flee the country or move to safer locations after receiving threats from Islamists.

Tunisia’s Morning After

Middle Eastern Upheavals

by Bruce Maddy-Weitzman – Summer 2011

Where does Tunisia, the unlikely igniter of the Middle Eastern upheavals, stand on the democratic transition scale three months after the overthrow of the long reigning autocrat Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali? And can the country, which stood (mostly by choice) at the margins of Arab political life since achieving independence in 1956, serve as a democratizing exemplar for other Arab states?

Extremist IFE sponsors a man who “calls Jews ‘germs’ and ‘monkeys'”

By Andrew Gilligan – June 15th, 2011

In two weeks’ time there will be a meeting in Tower Hamlets with a man called Raed Salah, a Palestinian who reportedly wrote the following piece of poetry in the Hamas journal:

Logo The Telegraph

“You Jews are criminal bombers of mosques,

Slaughterers of pregnant women and babies.

Robbers and germs in all times,

The Creator sentenced you to be loser monkeys,

Victory belongs to Muslims, from the Nile to the Euphrates.”

Saleh has also propagated the ancient “blood libel” against Jews, stating that they used Palestinian children’s blood to bake bread.

Islamophobic crime fell in London last year – MCB spins the opposite

By Andrew Gilligan – June 13th, 2011

Yesterday’s Independent on Sunday had an alarming story claiming that “Islamophobic attacks have been on the rise.” It previewed a speech in which Farooq Murad, head of the Muslim Council of Britain, was due to say: “Islamophobic attacks, on persons and properties, are committed by a tiny minority, but the number of incidents is increasing. Robust action is necessary.”

However, the same article quoted some interesting figures from the Metropolitan Police – the first I’ve seen on specifically Islamophobic incidents – which diametrically contradict both Mr Murad’s claim and the Sindy’s own. The paper said there had been “762 Islamophobic offences in London since April 2009, including 333 in 2010/11 and 57 since this April.” It said there were only a few forces which collect this data; figures from the other forces weren’t given.

East End Extremism

Michael Burleigh – July/August 2011

The religious studies department at Central Foundation Girls’ School in Bow proudly states on its website that religious education enables pupils “to flourish individually within their communities and as citizens in a diverse society, to develop respect for and sensitivity to others, in particular those whose faiths and beliefs are different from their own. It promotes discernment and enables pupils to combat prejudice.”

They may want to revise that passage after four Bangladeshis from the local “community” were jailed for grievous bodily harm with intent, and a fifth for helping dispose of the perpetrators’ bloodstained clothing, their victim being 38-year-old Gary Smith, for eight years head of religious education at the school. At 8am one day in July 2010, Mr Smith was waylaid by four men who repeatedly hit him with a brick and a metal rod before kicking him on the ground. Mr Smith now has a four-inch scar across his left cheek, a reminder of the fractures sustained to his jaw and the whole facial part of his skull during the attack.

Europe’s tallest building will be a “symbol of Islamic finance”

Barnabas Fund – 17 June 2011

Logo Barnabas Fund

Dwarfing all other tower blocks at 1,016ft (310 metres), the new landmark near London Bridge, will become the highest building anywhere in the European Union. The project has been financed by sharia-compliant investment with a consortium of Qatari investors who have paid £150m to secure an 80% stake in the project. The Financial Times states that the Shard “has typified the role played by Islamic finance in not only supporting, but defining a new era in the UK construction and property industry”. It also claims that there are certain conditions on the types of businesses that are allowed to occupy the completed building since it has been backed by Islamic finance.

The Shard is currently 280 metres high and is scheduled to be completed by May 2012 where it will form a stunning backdrop for the Olympic Games.

Egypt Detains Hundreds Of Eritrean Christians, Others Kidnapped

Stefan J. Bos – June 9, 2011

Hundreds of mainly Christian refugees from Eritrea are jailed or or held by kidnappers in Egypt, where they face torture, beatings and sexual assault, according to Christian aid workers who contacted BosNewsLife.

“The suffering of our brothers and sisters from Eritrea is unimaginable,” explained Patrick Sookhdeo, International Director of aid and advocacy group Barnabas Fund.

Many of the refugees tried to reach Israel, BosNewsLife learned Thursday, June 9. Before they reached Israel, however, the Eritreans were either halted by Egyptian security forces or by Bendouin Muslim nomads who work with human traffickers in the Sinai desert, said several rights activists and Christians with close knowledge about the situation.

There are up to 600 Eritrean prisoners in Egyptian custody and up to 200 others in the hands of traffickers, “have been less restricted in their criminal activities since the Egyptian revolution in January” ousted President Hosni Mubarak, Barnabas Fund said.

Clashes leave 12 dead as Christians attacked in Egypt

Barnabas Fund – 09 May 2011

Egyptian Christians came under attack at the weekend as Islamists set fire to two churches and Christian property, resulting in clashes that left 12 dead and more than 200 injured.

Logo Barnabas Fund

The unrest, which broke out in north-west Cairo on Saturday, has been described as one of the most serious outbreaks of sectarian violence since the revolution.

As several hundred Salafist Muslims descended on a church in Imbaba district, Christians barricaded themselves inside and around the building in a bid to protect it and, as demonstrations turned violent, Islamists stormed a six-storey residential building, claiming Christian snipers were positioned inside. Fire bombs were thrown at the church and at Christian homes and shops; the Muslim mob later attacked a second church, setting it ablaze.

Muslimsk vold i Nigeria: Kristne myrdes stadig

Islamists Slaughter Christians in Nigeria, Obama Looks the Other Way

by Anna Mahjar-Barducci – May 6, 2011

Logo Hudson New York

Although Sharia law has existed in Northern Nigeria for a long time, it used to apply only to family matters such as divorce, inheritance and adoption. It was only in 1999 that the governor of the Nigerian Northern State of Zamfara, Alhaji Ahmed Sani, decided to apply Shari law. The governor instead wanted to go farther and to include flogging, stoning, amputation, beheading, and other precepts of Islamic law.. Ever since, the Northern Nigerian States have followed Zamfara’s steps. Under the Sharia law, Nigerian women have been sentenced to death by stoning for adultery, have been forbidden to rent houses and to travel in the same vehicles as men.

African Christians are now fearing for their lives after the recent massacres in Nigeria. Large scale violence from extremist Muslims erupted in Nigeria against the Christian population soon after the results of the country’s presidential elections that took place on April 16th 2011. The outburst of violence started in the north of Nigeria, which has a predominantly Muslim majority, after the victory of President Goodluck Jonathan, a Christian politician. President Jonathan defeated the other presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari, a Muslim and former Nigerian President, who was accused of having rigged the electoral process. Jonathan’s victory represented a shift of power in the country to the largely Christian south.

Nigerian churches step up security after wave of attacks

Barnabas Fund – 06 June 2011

Churches in Nigeria are using bomb detectors at the door and preventing women from bringing bags inside in a bid to increase security after a barrage of attacks.

In the latest incident, three people were killed outside a church in Maiduguri last Tuesday (7 June) when a bomb thrown at the building missed its target and landed back on the street where it detonated. In a separate incident on the same day, a Christian preacher and one of his secretaries were shot dead by gunmen on motorcycles.

Church warnings of vigilante violence in Nigeria

June 20, 2011- By George Conger

Church leaders in Nigeria have urged the government to act swiftly in combating terror attacks on Christians.

The murder campaign in the North waged by Islamist Boko Haram sect known as the Nigerian Taliban could ignite a sectarian war in the South with Christians seeking revenge against Muslims, the Anglican Bishop of Awka warned.

Last week, the fundamentalist sect bombed a Roman Catholic Church and a police station in Maiduguri, killing eleven people, while on June 7 a Church of Christ in Nigeria pastor the Rev. David Usman and the church secretary were gunned down by members of the cult. Last week’s murder follows a 2009 attack on Mr. Usman’s church by Boko Haram militants, who burned it to the ground and killed several members of the congregation.

Mobs armed with machetes and poison-tipped arrows have been wreaking havoc across the Muslim-majority Northern states following the defeat of Muhammadu Buhari, a Muslim candidate from the North, in the poll on 16 April. Christians have been killed, houses and churches torched and property looted by the Muslim rioters. The Red Cross estimates that 74,000 people have been displaced by the violence. Many Christians had to celebrate Easter in military barracks where they had taken shelter from the riots.
