Update on Muslims celebrate Al- Adah fest by attacking Copts

16 November, 2010 06:39:00 PM AKI

A group of Islamic set fire to 10 houses belonging to Christians in a village approximately 500 kilometres south of Cairo,

less than a month after Al-Qaeda said it would target the northern African country's religious minority.
Local security forces said the assailants would have caused far more damage had they not been arrested.
Following an October attack on a Baghdad church that killed at least 58 people, Al-Qaeda said it would target Christians in the Middle East and northern Africa and singled out those in Egypt.
Attacks on Christians have increased despite announcements of support by Muslim leaders.
Coptic Christians make up around 10 percent of Egypt's population of 80 million.

Exposing the true face of Islam, Egyptian Muslims Celebrate Eid- ul-Adha (feast of the sacrifice) by burning and torching at least ten Christian homes and 65 shops in Southern Egypt. All this mayhem and carnage "over a rumour that a young Coptic Christian man and a Muslim girl were in a romantic relationship, said officials Tuesday".
In traditional Islamic style, the reaction is always extreme and disproportioned to the alleged transgression.
"Even falling in love, is subject to, and controlled by islam."

Only after the damage was done did Authorities step in and arrested only several people out of a mob exceeding 4000.

To prevent the murder of "Romeo and Juliet" ... "The security forces have also taken into custody the Christian man and Muslim girl that are at the centre of the controversy for investigation", that locals apparently caught together at night in the village cemetery. To leave the two behind would have resulted in their murder, stating with the honour killing of the girl for the "shame" she has brought on the family name, her life will never be the same again, and will remain the subject of ridicule and harassment if she remains in that village

The world is slowly becoming aware of the struggle and plight of the Copts that has endured for over 1400 years. The increasing violence towards the copts has resulted in an increasing number of frightened Christians moving into all-Christian neighbourhoods and attending schools run by the church. The islamists are effectively winning by forcing the copts into self imposed isolation and segregation from main stream egyptian community. The separation is the only means of protection the copts have to the increasing intolerance and persecution against the copts, the indigenous natives of egypt by Muslim extremist groups.

In January 2010, a group of gunmen in several cars opened fire on Christians exiting a church in the Southern Egyptian town of Nag Hammadi on Christmas Eve . The drive-by shooting incident left six people dead and another nine injured. Among those reportedly killed were a young man and his fiancé and a 14-year-old boy. Local sources say the gunmen wanted to kill Bishop Kirollos of the Nag Hammadi Diocese, who had publicly defended Coptic Christians after a Muslim riot last November.
Previously, a riot took place in November 2009 due to the allegation that a Christian young man had raped a young Muslim girl. Coptic Christians, however, asserted that the story was fabricated in order for Muslims to justify their attack, security forces found no evidence to support the fabrication.

This time around the riot reportedly left 65 shops destroyed and caused over $1 million in damage (6 million egyptian pounds). In the town of Farshoot alone, about 80 percent of Coptic businesses were destroyed.

Coptic Christians are regarded as second class citizens in egypt where general inequalities when it comes to education, economic opportunities, and government positions is the norm.

Human rights groups say attacks on Copts are on the rise, underscoring the government's failure to address chronic sectarian strains in a society where Islamic religious radicalism is gaining ground.

The Apostle Saint Mark founded the Coptic Church in the 1st century when he brought Christianity to Egypt.
Then Muslims brought Islam to Egypt in the 7th century. After several centuries of forced conversion, Egypt now has a Muslim majority. Christians make up 10 percent of Egypt’s population while Muslims make up the remaining portion.

Muslim leaders daily remind us that islam is a religion of Peace. Even Obama on his "defacto Hajj to Indonesia" attests to this great religion. It is clear their islamic brothers in islamic nations totally disagree with them.
Imagine the outcry by the muslims residing in western countries if they were treated in the exact same manner!!!!

The Hypocrisy, double standards and utter confusion as to what islam represents is reprehensible.
In the west we are sold one brand of Islam, at the same time we witness that "ISLAM IN ACTION" in Islamic countries totally contradicts the carefully articulated sales pitch we are sold. I think you would all agree "Actions speak infinitely louder than words"

It is time to hold a royal commission into islam, shariah, koran, and stop the deception and double dutch. Westerns must demand their rights and have a set of established ground rules to control and regulate the impacts of islam on western society. The facts are Islam is totally incompatible with western countries and democracy, and they are opposed to it.

The world must realise, there is not one muslim Land, state, country, that has peace and has not bred terrorists or enjoys true democracy. Wake up world, and have a good look at all islamic nations, Is that what you want for your future generations?, do not repeat the mistake of Egypt.

    On the evening of March 19 2003 the world was invited by the UP.SO. secretary of defence Donald Rumsfeld to turn on there television next morning to watch a pyrotechnics display that he described as being shock and awe. After he was finished his speech in his Christian spirit he asked God to bless America. The next morning at around 8 am as my 11 year old daughter was sitting at the kitchen table having breakfast , I turned on the TV and sure enough Rumsfeld's prophetic words had become reality. I said to my daughter, "while you are sitting here in our comfortable kitchen having breakfast there are literally thousands of children being killed and / or being maimed and becoming orphans, going at this very time through hell on earth. I could so easily imagine at the time a scenario where in some makeshift emergency hospital a young boy would wake up on on a bed to discover that although he survived his sister and brother and his mom and dad were all killed by American bombs. Now only about 7 years later he's a young man and we are prepared to call the little bastard a terrorist because he hates the west and he hates Christians. It’s all happening because we cant find a way to accept our differences, we cannot rise above our craving to be the right and the powerful ones , we refuse to show any sign of weakness. We are afraid to see the good, the beauty and the life in another group that is different from ours as though if we do we may be swallowed up by them."
    In the 1990's the American government ( Christians) supplied Iraq with the needed military force to inflict devastation on Iran and the fact that the same military might was used by Sadham Hussein to exterminate hundreds of thousands of innocent people in his own country was okay with the American government (Christians) who simply turned a blind eye because doing so served their own interest.
    Human Rights groups such as Amnesty International - for whom I sometimes write letters - struggles for justice everywhere. As Martin Luther King Jr. said " an injustice anywhere is an injustice everywhere." It isn't a struggle limited to any one or number of groups , we all belong to the same march.
    You need not in the future assert or assume that we all agree with you, because you now know one who very well may not. Six million Jews were exterminated and that action began with words among Christians.
    Even Jesus when asked "which God is the right one" said " that is not the question." God loves us all , we DO NOT have the capacity to know Him as He Is. In our notions of what God is we are not equally right , we are equally wrong and that says Jesus is not what matters.
    I can well imagine what the western world would look like if the governing body was the catholic church. Condoms sure would be very expensive in the underground market and who knows what would ever become of pedophiles.
    I can very easily imagine Tim , a young Muslim family living a comfortable and good life in my neighbourhood. A Muslim dad like me a Christian dad teaching his daughter about the importance of loving and respecting those who are different just like I do. At every opportunity he demonstrates how it is that we need God because we are not God, just like I do with my daughter. I can imagine his daughter browsing the web and stumbling on to this blog and reading your comment. I can imagine her hiding it to make sure her dad doesn't see it -as my daughter would if it were about Christians-in order to protect him from the fear and the pain it has caused in her.
    It is without any doubt a display of blatant racism . The very attitude that incites and fuels hate and war. I believe that this kind of prejudice and hate is so deeply entrenched in so many influential and powerful people in the world that the hope for peace can come only from teaching our children and generations to come to reject such hate filled messages of rejection and instead to welcome and embrace those who are different.

    Just curious where Jesus said this "Even Jesus when asked "which God is the right one" said " that is not the question." God loves us all , we DO NOT have the capacity to know Him as He Is. In our notions of what God is we are not equally right , we are equally wrong and that says Jesus is not what matters."
    What scripture verse are you referring to here?

    Thanks

  3. Tim did you get that?
    Christians deserve it so stop whining.

    Muslim aggression has nothing to do with violent and hateful teachings in the Koran being acted upon by militant believers but simply getting even with the evil Christians represented perfectly by the actions of the obvious theocracy in Washington. You know, the country that sells holiday trees and festive lights and has a team in jackboots on the lookout for those awful public displays of religion.

    Once they agree to sit and talk with Osama over tea and buns militant islam will beat their AK47s and explosive reboks into plowshares and stop chopping off our heads on TV and blowing us up at random on buses, in churches and on airplanes.
    I suppose they've taken the lives of countless fellow muslims over the years due to US foreign policy as well (AKA The Crusaders). Thats probably why you can't find a gay man alive in Iran either. Can't you see the good and beauty in all that or are you still a racist?
    Just look to Larry for a shining example of tolerance toward Catholics, full of kind words brimming with that Christian love and tolerance he's teaching his daughter.

    Cheers

  6. Islam teaches the following:
    "Those who kill or are killed by unbelievers will return to the garden of Paradise (Koran 9:111), where they will enjoy many lustful pleasures - sex with virgins, pleasant food and drink, etc."

    "Islam both allows and forbids murder and violence, depending on who is the recipient of the act.

    Allowed:

    "Make war on them until idolatry is no more and Allah's religion reigns supreme." (Koran 8:37)
    The Koran instructs not to make friendship with Jews and Christians (Koran 5:51) but to war against them: "When the Sacred Months are over, kill those who ascribe partners to God wheresoever ye find them; seize them, encompass them, and ambush them; then if they repent and observe prayer and pay the alms, let them go their way (Koran 4:5). "Fight against those who believe not in God nor in the Last Day, who... refuse allegiance to the True Faith from among those who have received the Book, until they humbly pay tribute out of hand." (Koran 9:29) Note: These verses distinguish between warfare against pagans, and against Jews and Christians.[17]
    "...kill the disbelievers wherever we find them" (Koran 2:191); "fight and slay the Pagans, seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem" (Koran 9:5); "murder them and treat them harshly" (Koran 9:123).
    "Seize ye him, and bind ye him, And burn ye him in the Blazing Fire. Further, make him march in a chain, whereof the length is seventy cubits! This was he that would not believe in Allah Most High. And would not encourage the feeding of the indigent! So no friend hath he here this Day. Nor hath he any food except the corruption from the washing of wounds, Which none do eat but those in sin." (Koran 69:30-37)
    "Strike off the heads of the disbelievers"; and after making a "wide slaughter among them, carefully tie up the remaining captives" (Koran 47:4).
    "Instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers"; "smite above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them" (Koran 8:12; cp. 8:60).
    "O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites, and be stern against them. Their abode is Hell - an evil refuge indeed" (Koran 9:73).
    "slay or crucify or cut the hands and feet of the unbelievers, that they be expelled from the land with disgrace..." (Koran 5:34).
    "for them (the unbelievers) garments of fire shall be cut and there shall be poured over their heads boiling water whereby whatever is in their bowels and skin shall be dissolved and they will be punished with hooked iron rods" (Koran 22:19-22)"

    Contrast this with the Bible.
    The Christian Bible forbids murder:

    "Thou shalt not kill (murder)." (Exodus 20:13; Deuteronomy 5:17)
    "...murders... they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God." (Galatians 5:21)
    "...no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him." (1 John 3:15)
    "...murderers... shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death." (Revelation 21:8)
    "For without [are] dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters..." (Revelation 22:15)
    Jesus and Paul both reiterated the Old Testament prohibition against murder:

    "Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment." (Matthew 5:21)
    "...Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill...." (Romans 13:9) Unquote

  7. Unfortuntely, the Muslim population is growing at a far greater rate than the non-Muslim population in Europe and North American. The non-Muslim birth rate is around 1.5 and the minimum to sustain a population grouping or culture is 2.11 according to a demographic study on a video I watched. There is not much that can be done about it. We can't fight against that reality. Demographics are demographics. The face of Europe will change entirely probably within about 40 years. True bible-believing christians should consider that the days of a persecution free world are probably limited. Is there a solution? Not that I know of unless the Lord returns before then and establishes his kingdom on earth. My suggestion would be for anyone who does not know they have eternal life is to start reading the gospels and epistles with an open mind. Pray that the Lord will reveal his truth to you. Only through the new birth is there a real hope, but it is not in this world. Jesus said His kingdom is not of this world. Salvation is of the Lord, not through a church or man-made rituals, but by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone. Sound familiar?

  8. I meant the days of a persecution free (in general) western world are probably limited. There is persecution of christians now in Muslim countries and in some places they can get the death sentence. There is also persecution in some other countries in different ways. The U.S. State Department website used to have a report on the internet on the state of religious freedom in each country.

  9. STG: I regret to say it... but you are right.

    There are going to be difficult times ahead for Christians in general and Catholics in particular which will be marked with the blood of martyrs. Europe has failed to act and they are now falling. Canada usually trails the EU by 5-10 years and our time of peace is just about up as well as I doubt that the leaders of the day will be able (or necessarily even willing) to stand up for the rights of Christians and Churches. Eventually the fate of Christians in Somalia, the Middle East and now in Europe will visit North American shores and believers will begin to feel the heel of Islamic extremism.

    In one way it makes perfect sense. America paid for the Madrases and mosques that promote this Arabic perversion of the Muslim faith with trillions of petro-dollars... now it's time for them to take delivery of their purchase. I fear that there is one line of the contract that they failed to read before entering this Faustian arrangement...

    ALL SALES ARE FINAL. NO REFUND... NO RETURN.

  12. Just a little concerned Tim. Are you maitaining contact with people physicaly (i.e. apart from computer)other than your routine masses and so forth?
    If memory serves me right , you were not always catholic. How do you feel about being catholic now?
    How do you feel about the decision to enter into the priesthood?
    Have you ever had a sexual relationship with another human being ?
    Is there something you would like to talk about Tim ? I am not trying to insult you in any way.
    I could keep guessing , but only you would know.
    I am very serious and sincere about the fact that I am prepared and willing to listen and offer support in whatever capacity I can if you call on me at any time.

  13. Larry: I appreciate the concern. Let me answer your questions for you.

    1. Yes, I have a full compliment of friends whom I either visit with or who visit me. This evening I had a very pleasant supper with a number of them at the Pentecostal Church

    2. Your memory is flawed. I am a cradle Catholic. I love being a Catholic!

    3. Best decision of my life - bar none!!

    4. I lived in a common law relationship for a few years as I came out of university with my first degree and found work in Pembroke with the CAS. (Not that this is any of your concern - I answer because I remember you and your wife as being good and kind people and assume the best of interests on your part.)

    5. What I have to say, I say here on my blog and from the pulpit of my parish. It is no different from what I say in my private life either. I have no need (conscious or subconscious) to vent my spleen nor bare my soul.

    6. Thank you. If the need should ever arise, I would not hesitate to turn to you or others should it become necessary and appropriate. As a priest of the diocese, it's good to know that the laity are willing to support and encourage their clergy.

    Fr. Tim
