PENSA CHE IL TUO MORTO FRATELLO ALL'INFERNO? LUI HA ANCHE FINTO DI FARE IL MORTO PUR DI POTER SFUGGIRE ALLA SUA COSCIENZA DI ASSASSINO! PERCHé è SATANA A COSTRINGERVI? OVVIAMENTE, LUI è GELOSO E VUOLE VEDERE SE QUALCUNO DI VOI LO TRADISCE! COSì PUò FARVI TERRORIZZARE: RECIPROCAMENTE, AVENDO VOI, SEMPRE PAURA L'UNO DELL'ALTRO NEL NWO! IN QUESTO MODO VOI ASPETTATE LA MORTE COME UNA LIBERAZIONE, MA SOLTANTO PERCHé, VOI NON AVETE ESPERIENZA DI QUELLO CHE VI ATTENDE ALL'INFERNO! Iraq: come stanno i cristiani a Baghdad, Sintesi: l'attenzione dei media è concentrata sulle zone di conflitto in Iraq, ma la guerra continua anche a Baghdad. L'estate scorsa, 76 persone sono state uccise in  un unico attentato. Diversi cristiani sono stati rapiti negli ultimi mesi e alcuni sono stati uccisi. Come fa una chiesa a sopravvivere in Iraq? E cosa può imparare la Chiesa di tutto il mondo da questa situazione? Per rispondere a queste domande abbiamo intervistato il pastore Farouk di Baghdad. Come stanno i cristiani nella vostra chiesa a Baghdad?
Nonostante tutta la violenza subita, cerchiamo di vivere il più possibile la nostra vita in modo normale. Andiamo a lavorare, prendiamo i bambini da scuola e ci visitiamo l'un l'altro. Ogni sera abbiamo attività presso la chiesa e la maggior parte dei credenti sono attivi. La guerra, purtroppo, è diventata normale a Baghdad. Subiamo attentati, seppelliamo i morti e proseguiamo. Ne siamo afflitti, ma tutti questi anni di guerra hanno indurito la nostra pelle.
Come fate ad andare avanti in questo modo? Non è facile. In guerra si potrebbe dire che anche i bambini nascono con l'ansia. Fortunatamente, negli ultimi 5 anni, nessuno nella nostra chiesa è morto a causa della guerra, ma ognuno ha la propria storia. Molti hanno sperimentato perdite: di familiari o di beni. Viviamo continuamente discriminazione, rifiuto, risentimento e amarezza oltre alla mancanza di pace. Cerchiamo di curare le ferite interiori della nostra gente. Facciamo molta consulenza e formiamo dei giovani collaboratori. Non posso dire che questo sia abbastanza, ma facciamo quello che possiamo e preghiamo per ciò che non possiamo fare.
Come influisce la minaccia dell'ISIS sulle persone a Baghdad? E' stato un campanello d'allarme. Come cristiani, abbiamo bisogno di restare fermi nella nostra identità. Milioni di persone hanno perso tutto, ma alcuni hanno trovato Cristo. Alla nostra chiesa, l'afflusso di sfollati interni ha dato l'opportunità di praticare il cristianesimo vero, per aiutare tutti coloro che hanno bisogno; non importa se sono cristiani come noi o meno. Dio ci ha chiesto di essere amorevoli con tutti.
Quale è il ruolo di Dio nella vostra vita? Dio è tutto per noi. Ci guida e manda le persone giuste sul nostro cammino. Ci dona pace e gioia, nonostante la situazione. Sperimentiamo la Sua guarigione interiore e la Sua libertà. Davvero, non siamo nulla senza di Lui; la speranza è solo in Lui.     13 gennaio 2016: online la WWL2016! Appuntamento al 13 gennaio 2016 per l'uscita della nuova World Watch List 2016. La World Watch List è la lista dei 50 paesi dove la persecuzione dei cristiani è più forte.

ITALIA è UNA COLONIA DI UK ] TUTTO DOCUMENTATO [ Pubblicato il 12 nov 2015 https://youtu.be/yE81l3449rg  I nuovi documenti desecretati UK testimoniano delle manovre eversive del Regno Unito per manipolare e controllare l'Italia fin dal secondo dopo guerra, e portano dritti dritti alla morte di Enrico Mattei e di Aldo Moro. Sono agghiaccianti, parlano di manovre eversive e della necessità, fallita l'idea di realizzare un rovesciamento del Governo, di agire con i servizi segreti di Sua Maestà.

NON PUò L'EGITTO DIVENTARE UN GIGANTE MILITARE, SE è DALLA PARTE DEI SAUDITI, CHE GLI HANNO COMPRATO LE MISTRAL.. Egyptian warplanes pound ISIS affiliated groups in Southern Gaza Region. The Egyptian security forces killed 15 suspected Islamic State terrorists in an eight-hour raid in North Sinai on Thursday, Egyptian media reported. The raids targeted Ansar Bait al-Maqdis, a group that pledged allegiance to Islamic State, a security source told the Egyptian newspaper Al-Masry al-Youm. Arab witnesses in the Gazan side of Rafah said that Egyptian warplanes hit targets on the Egyptian side of Rafah. Video obtained by Reuters showed what the cameraman said was an Egyptian warplane flying over Gaza, followed by the sound of an air strike and a cloud of black smoke rising from Rafah. Meanwhile, terrorists in Sinai shelled a home near a security checkpoint in Rafah, killing an entire family of five and wounding a neighbor, AP quoted Egyptian officials as saying. Watch Here. The Egyptian Army has demolished thousands of homes on the Egyptian side of Rafah during the past year to create a buffer zone with nearby Gaza, an effort by Egypt to end smuggling of arms via secret tunnels. Egypt decided in November 2014 to double the width of the security buffer zone after an outbreak of some of the worst anti-state violence since ousted president Mohamed Morsi was overthrown in 2013. Separately, Russia signed an agreement with Egypt to deliver 46 Ka-52 attack helicopters, the director- general of the JSC Russian Helicopters holding company, Alexander Mikheyev, said on Wednesday, Tass Russian News Agency reported. “A large agreement for delivery of 46 Ka-52 Alligator helicopters has been signed with Egypt through [the state weaponry trading company] Rosoboronexport,” he said.

FINCHé President Al-Sisi NON CONDANNA LA SHARIA? QUESTA è TUTTA UNA CONGIURA CONTRO ISRAELE, EUROPA E CONTRO TUTTO IL RESTO DEL MONDO! President Al-Sisi STA CIRCONDANDO ISRAELE! ] [ Egyptian President Al-Sisi Delivers Speech That May Change the World Forever. ] QUESTO DISCORSO? è UNA TRAPPOLA [ In a speech delivered at Al-Azhar at the end of 2014, Egyptian President Abd Al-Fattah Al-Sisi called to combat extremist ideology and said: “We need to revolutionize our religion.” Calling for “religious discourse that is in keeping with its times,” Al-Sisi warned that “the Islamic nation is being torn apart and destroyed” by extremism. There is something very levelheaded about Egypt’s president. Since entering office in June 2014, Abd Al-Fattah Al-Sisi, has incorporated reforms meant to strengthen Egypt’s economy, improve education, overcome the country’s energy crisis, the expansion of the Suez Canal project, and, perhaps most importantly for world peace and stability, Al-Sasi would like Islam to be perceived as more tolerant and this speech to Muslim clergymen is part of a long process of creating a democratic, religiously tolerant country. Al-Sasi has made changes in school textbooks which discuss Islam and in the second video is seen delivering a speech to Egyptian Christians at the Coptic Orthodox Cathedral in Cairo during their Christmas mass. Al-Sasi has bravely begun to lead Egypt on a road towards tolerance and democracy. If only other Muslim countries would follow.

eih, SALMAN SAUDI ARABIA, TU HAI FIRMATO QUESTA PETIZIONE CONTRO DI TE? Al menos 15 muertos en el ataque de hoy de Boko Haram en Maiduguri (Nigeria) Apoyo internacional para los cristianos de Nigeria. Los cristianos en Nigeria sufren persecución diaria por parte de Boko Haram. En los últimos 6 años han sido asesinados 150.000 personas. En la diócesis de Maiduguri han destruído 50 capillas e iglesias. Cerca de 60.000 de los 125.000 fieles de la diócesis han tenido que abandonar sus casas. Los que permanecen conviven con el trauma y el miedo. Necesitan agua potable, medicina y vivienda. El país necesita ayuda política, económica y militar. Le pido que no mire para otro lado, redoble las políticas de cooperación y refuerce a la coalición internacional de países africanos que combate a Boko Haram. Atentamente, #BastaYA
Escribe a la UE, ONU y Unión de Estados Africanos y pídeles que frenen de una vez la BARBARIE
Hola, lorenzoJHWH ] [ Probablemente pocos medios lo contarán, pero esta mañana Boko Haram ha vuelto a atacar en Maiduguri (Nigeria) con AK47 y granadas. Iban 10 suicidas y la cifra de muertos de momento asciende a 15. Como recordarás, el obispo de Maiduguri pedía hace unas semanas que hubiera una posición más firme por parte de la comunidad internacional. ¿Quieres sumarte al pedido? Tu mensaje llegará a la Unión Europea, ONU y Unión de Estados Africanos http://citizengo.org/es/sy/30920-ayuda-y-solidaridad-con-cristianos-nigerianos
Si ya firmaste, por favor, comparte este petición. La situación en Nigeria es DRAMATICA.
Por si fuera poco, el ataque se produce a los pocos días de que el presidente nigeriano afirmase que la banda yihadista estaba “técnicamente derrotada”. O erró en el cálculo o hay vínculos inconfesables… El caso es que es el genocidio de cristianos continúa… ¡¡en plena Navidad!! Debemos de pararlo. Por favor, escribe a los organismos internacionales y pideles una actuación firme que frene la barbarie. http://citizengo.org/es/sy/30920-ayuda-y-solidaridad-con-cristianos-nigerianos Leo en la prensa española el testimonio de Godiya Ousman, una mujer de unos 50 años que lleva 20 meses huyendo el error. Ahora se encuentra en el Chad, refugiada en una choza con 3 ollas. Ese es su hogar… Esto es lo que dice: “Los cristianos de Nigeria estamos sufriendo mucho (…) Si ven que un cristiano sale a vender algo al mercado, en uno o dos minutos aparecen, te matan y nadie dice nada”. Tremendo…
El salesiano argentino Jorge Casafulli, lleva 20 años en Africa. Acaba de instalarse en el norte de Nigeria. Su testimonio también es muy impactante: “Los cristianos no tienen acceso a cargos públicos, no se puede predicar a Cristo abiertamente en las calles, no se permite la manifestación pública de fe (…) Si no te conviertes, la alternativa es la tortura o la muerte”
¿Hasta cuando va a seguir la comunidad internacional mirando para otro lado?
http://citizengo.org/es/sy/30920-ayuda-y-solidaridad-con-cristianos-nigerianos
Gracias por tu solidaridad. Gracias por aportar tu graito de arena en frenar esta barbarie. Nuestros hermanos nigerianos están dando muestra de fe, fortaleza y esperanza. Lo mínimo que cabe es devolverles algo de solidaridad, Un fuerte abrazo, Luis Losada Pescador y todo el equipo de CitizenGO PD1. ¡Paremos el genocidio cristiano en Navidad! Escribe a los organismos internacionales y pídeles que paren la barbarie de Boko Haram. PD2. Un grupo de amigos están ahora en Iraq. Fueron a vivir la Navidad con los cristianos refugiados.

    QUANDO ONU AMNESTY UE USA E NATO NON SANNO DI AVERE LA LINGUA! Le giovani vittime del regime turco. 06.01.2016 Tra il 26 luglio e il 30 novembre 2015 il regime turco ha causato la morte di 44 bambini curdi tra i 35 giorni e i 18 anni di età. Secondo il rapporto stilato da Humanist Bureau, organizzazione attiva dal 2010, la cui missione è quella di portare all'attenzione dell'opinione pubblica in Turchia i diritti dei bambini, tra il 26 luglio e il 30 novembre 2015, il regime turco ha provocato la morte di 44 bambini curdi.
Il più piccolo, un bimbo di appena 35 giorni, il più grande un ragazzo di 18 anni. In Turchia, ne parlano il quotidiano Cumhuriyet e la rivista satirica LeMan, la quale rende omaggio alle giovani vittime con un'illustrazione a tema in prima pagina. Teatro dei tristi eventi le città di Diyarbekir, Şırnak, Ağrı, Istanbul, Mardin, Van, Ankara, Hakkâri e Adana. Sono almeno 52 i bambini feriti. Turchia, serie raid militari uccidono centinaia di ribelli curdi. Stando al rapporto di Humanist Bureau, le morti e le ferite subite dai giovani curdi sono state provocate da diversi fattori. Alcuni hanno perso la vita a causa dell'esplosione di una bomba, altri sono morti per l'impossibilità di accedere alle cure mediche o per le percosse della polizia, altri ancora sono stati uccisi nel corso di una manifestazione o mentre giocavano nel parco davanti alla propria casa: http://it.sputniknews.com/mondo/20160106/1842705/bambini-giovani-vittime-regime-turco.html#ixzz3wTlw7NJm
Alla Polonia serve la “minaccia russa” per rafforzare l'esercito sfruttando la NATO. [ SOLTANTO LA LEGA ARABA STA INVADENDO LE NAZIONI, NON CON I MIGRANTI, E NANCHE CON LA SUA RELIGIONE, MA CON LA SUA IDEOLOGIA NAZISMO SHARIA: TUTTO IL GENERE UMANO è PER QUESTO SOTTO MINACCIA DI TERRORISMO MONDIALE  ] 06.01.2016)  Le forti dichiarazioni di Varsavia sulla grave minaccia proveniente dalla Russia si basano sul nulla. In realtà la Polonia cerca di schierare le truppe della NATO sulle spalle degli altri membri dell'Alleanza, scrive sulla rivista “The National Interest” Doug Bandow, esperto presso il Cato Institute. La Polonia cerca di schierare le truppe NATO sul suo territorio e ricorda sempre la "minaccia russa", mentre gli altri Paesi europei non percepiscono la Russia come una forza che minacci la loro esistenza, scrive l'analista del Cato Institute ed ex assistente speciale del presidente Ronald Reagan Doug Bandow nel suo articolo per "The National Interest". Come Paese ospitante del vertice della NATO nel 2016, la Polonia ha messo in chiaro che il suo obiettivo principale nei prossimi mesi sarà quello di mettere pressioni sui membri dell'Alleanza in modo che forniscano aiuti militari. Come annunciato dal governo polacco, i leader mondiali si riuniranno a luglio a Varsavia per discutere di come "affrontare più efficacemente le minacce", compresa "l'aggressività della Russia". Ora le autorità polacche chiedono il dislocamento delle truppe della NATO sul suo territorio e contemporaneamente cercano di stringere un accordo con Londra. In cambio, i polacchi promettono di contribuire a "limitare il flusso di migranti in Gran Bretagna", scrive Doug Bandow. Allo stesso tempo la maggior parte degli Stati membri europei della NATO riduce le spese militari. I membri europei della NATO, ad eccezione dell'Estonia, della Grecia (per contrastare la Turchia) e della Polonia (per la prima volta in assoluto) non arrivano a spendere per la difesa nemmeno il 2% del PIL, come richiesto ai membri della NATO. "Anche il 2% è poco se si è certi che il proprio Paese veda minacciata la propria esistenza a seguito dell'aggressività di una forza autoritaria. Eppure la Polonia si sente vulnerabile ai confini orientali della NATO ed esprime forte preoccupazione per la "minaccia russa." Non volendo investire un soldo, Varsavia conta sul fatto che gli altri membri della NATO si carichino dell'onere di proteggerla,"- si dice nell'articolo. Naturalmente la "minaccia russa" non è così grande dal momento che la Polonia fa affidamento sugli altri. Secondo l'autore, è giunto il momento per l'Europa di provvedere autonomamente alla propria sicurezza. L'imprescindibilità della NATO con al centro gli Stati Uniti è ormai venuta a mancare alcuni anni fa. Ora serve una nuova alleanza militare che costringa l'Europa ad investire nella propria sicurezza, come ora si stanno facendo carico gli USA. http://it.sputniknews.com/mondo/20160106/1843823/Russia-Europa-USA-Difesa-Geopolitica.html#ixzz3wTnDGNHw

Tre di loro sono stati identificati, ma non ancora arrestati.  ROMA, 6 GEN - Un 'codice' di comportamento rivolto alle donne al fine di prevenire orribili aggressioni come quella avvenuta a Colonia la notte di Capodanno è stato suggerito dalla sindaco della città tedesca. Lo riportano i media tedeschi. In particolare, Henriette Reker ha raccomandato alle donne di "tenere dagli estranei una distanza equivalente alla lunghezza di un braccio" nei luoghi pubblici, di non isolarsi dal proprio gruppo, di chiedere aiuto a un passante o di chiamare la polizia.

Corsi anti-cristiani all'Università: Attenti, vogliono convertirvi ] [ Un seminario universitario, rivolto agli studenti islamici, per insegnare come difendersi dai cristiani. Dal loro proselitismo e dal rischio che possano esserci conversioni dalla fede di Maometto a quella di Gesù.
E' ciò che accade in Malaysia, dove il campus della Universiti Teknologi Mara di Kuala Lumpur, la capitale, ha organizzato dei seminari per mettere in guardia i musulmani dal pericolo di cristianizzazione: Attenti, vogliono convertirvi. Il mondo sta diventando sempre meno un posto per cristiani. Che in più parti del mondo subiscono umiliazioni e discriminazioni. Anche in Malaysia, una soietà multietnica, in cui l'Islam è la religione di stato ma in cui convivono il 40% di cittadini che hanno fedi diverse, dal buddismo all'induismo, passando per il cristianesimo. Eppure, nonostante le libertà di culto, l'Islam rimane la religione obbligatoria per i cittadini di origine malese, che se volessero abbandonare la fede in Allah, dovrebbero ottenere uno speciale permesso da un tribunale della Sharia. Che, ovviamente, lo concede malvolentieri.
Come racconta oggi La Stampa, la Federazione dei cristiani della Malaysia ha sollevato una forte polemica, defindendo l'apertura dei seminari all'università come un tentativo di diffondere propaganda e violenza settaria. Un modo per aumentare l'odio nei confronti dei cristiani. Immaginatevi se in Italia, in una università pubblica, fossero istituiti corsi per difendersi dall'islamizzazione. Ne verrebbe fuori un circolo di proteste e denunce di razzismo senza eguali.
Quando ad essere vittime sono i cristiani, invece, tutto rimane nel silenzio.

By Joe Brock. ABUJA Sun Nov 17, 2013 8:06am EST. Hajja, 19, who was kidnapped by al Qaeda-linked Islamist group Boko Haram, poses for a picture after an interview with Reuters in Abuja November 6, 2013. REUTERS/Joe Brock. Hajja, 19, who was kidnapped by al Qaeda-linked Islamist group Boko Haram, poses for a picture after an interview with Reuters in Abuja November 6, 2013. (Reuters) - In the gloom of a hilltop cave in Nigeria where she was held captive, Hajja had a knife pressed to her throat by a man who gave her a choice - convert to Islam or die.
Two gunmen from Boko Haram had seized the Christian teenager in July as she picked corn near her village in the Gwoza hills, a remote part of northeastern Nigeria where a six-month-old government offensive is struggling to contain an insurgency by the al Qaeda-linked Islamist group.
In a new development, Boko Haram is abducting Christian women whom it converts to Islam on pain of death and then forces into "marriage" with fighters - a tactic that recalls Joseph Kony's Lord's Resistance Army in the jungles of Uganda. The three months Hajja spent as the slave of a 14-strong guerrilla unit, cooking and cleaning for them before she escaped, give a rare glimpse into how the Islamists have changed tack in the face of Nigerian military pressure. "I can't sleep when I think of being there," the 19-year-old told Reuters, recounting forced mountain marches, rebel intelligence gathering - and watching her captors slit the throats of prisoners Hajja had helped lure into a trap. Nigerian security officials say the Islamists have pulled back after army assaults since May on their bases on the semi-desert plain and are now sheltering in the Mandara mountains, along the Cameroon border around the city of Gwoza. From the hills they have been launching increasingly deadly attacks. The rugged mountain terrain - as fellow al Qaeda allies found in Afghanistan - has proven an advantageous base for a movement that once styled itself the "Nigerian Taliban" and sees all non-Muslims as infidels who must convert or be killed. The United States designated Boko Haram a terrorist group on Wednesday. Western governments are increasingly concerned about the wider threat posed by the group, which wants to create an Islamic state in a religiously mixed country of 170 million and which has ties with al Qaeda's north African wing. Hajja's account of how Boko Haram has adapted and survived in recent months underlines the difficulties governments in the region face. The spread of the threat was underscored by the kidnap on Thursday of a French priest in Cameroon, an attack France believes may have involved Boko Haram. The following day, Nigerian troops raided a base for the group in the Gwoza hills. The army said it killed 29 Boko Haram fighters and was "closing in" on the rebels. FORCED TO CONVERT. The group, whose name broadly translates as "Western education is sinful", has killed thousands during a four-year insurgency against the Nigerian state, targeting the police and armed forces as well as politicians and then turning on Christians in the predominantly Muslim north of the country. The military offensive launched in mid-May, and the fact that large numbers of civilian vigilantes have supported it, has triggered a fierce backlash against local people by Boko Haram. The militants have killed hundreds in the past few weeks, including in massacres of school children. The Islamists dragged Hajja along rocky mountain paths and slept in caves in the hills, a landscape unfamiliar to most Nigerian soldiers, recruited from the plains. She ceremonially converted to Islam, cooked for the men, carried ammunition during an attack on a police outpost and was about to be married to one of the insurgents before she managed to engineer a dramatic escape. She says she was not raped. "If I cried, they beat me. If I spoke, they beat me. They told me I must become a Muslim but I refused again and again," Hajja told Reuters in an interview. Her family name is withheld to protect relatives still living in the Gwoza area. "They were about to slaughter me and one of them begged me not to resist and just before I had my throat slit I relented. They put a veil on me and made me read from the Koran," she said in the Nigerian capital, Abuja, where she is now living. At least a dozen teenagers like her remain in captivity, Michael Yohanna, a councilor in Gwoza's local government told Reuters. Some have married commanders, recalling Kony's LRA, which abducted thousands of "wives" in a 20-year war in Uganda before a truce in 1986. Kony remains a fugitive. A man called Ibrahim Tada Nglayike led the group Hajja was with. On one mission, Hajja was sent to stand in a field near a village to attract the attention of civilians working with the army. When five men approached her, they were ambushed. "They took them back to a cave and tied them up. They cut their throats, one at a time," Hajja said. "I thought my heart would burst out of my chest, because I was the bait." Among those who did the killing was the Muslim wife of the leader Nglayike, the only other woman in the band of fighters. reuters verified Hajja's account of having been abducted with independent figures in the region. Boko Haram shuns the media and none of its members could be contacted for comment. Hajja says the long-bearded insurgents lived a basic lifestyle, eating corn, millet and occasionally meat from animals they stole and which she slaughtered. The group, armed with AK-47 rifles and pistols stolen from police they killed, moved every day around the hills to avoid being tracked by the army and slept in the caves to shelter from the cold and for protection against air assaults. "They didn't use phones but they had a radio," Hajja said. "They would listen to BBC Hausa or Voice of America and jump and shout if they heard about Boko Haram attacks." "TOOTHPASTE EFFECT" . Forced out of cities and semi-desert bases since Jonathan declared a state of emergency in May, the militants have mostly retreated to hills and forests on the Cameroon border. "It's the toothpaste effect: squeeze one end and it comes out the other. They have proven resilient and are adapting faster than the military," a Nigerian security source said. Army commanders denied Boko Haram had any control over the Gwoza mountains: "We are curtailing their activities and I can assure you that ... the insurgency will soon be a thing of the past," Lieutenant Colonel Adamu Garba Laka said. But a Nigerian general asked Cameroon this month for help in fighting Boko Haram, and the backlash against civilians has made the conflict deadlier than ever. According to one security source, in the five months after Jonathan declared a state of emergency in the northeast there were 1,708 deaths in 83 violent clashes, compared with 667 deaths from 117 incidents in the previous five months. Pushing the conflict into poor rural regions, like Gwoza, where Hajja was seized, runs the risk of radicalizing more disenchanted youths and drawing more people into the violence. "Gwoza has disintegrated. We have no schools, no hospitals, no government offices functioning," said councilor Yohanna. "I worry that youths will take the law into their own hands. It will become a war between Christians and Muslims." Insurgents moved freely through the hills and even into the town of Gwoza, Hajja said. Fighters made trips to collect cash, ammunition and weapons from the Sambisa Game Reserve, a forested region where Boko Haram has established camps. Informants, mostly farmers, would warn them of approaching army patrols, Hajja said, adding that the rebels also appeared to have sympathetic contacts among the troops - something Nigerian military commanders deny. "They know the area very well and many people help them because they are afraid or support their cause," Hajja said. On once occasion, Boko Haram commanders were able travel from Maiduguri, the state capital on the plain north of Gwoza, to meet the guerrilla group in the hills. Hajja said her unit carried out dozens of attacks, killing police and anyone suspected of aiding authorities. The longer the insurgency goes on, President Goodluck Jonathan, a southern Christian, will come under increasing criticism from his northern opponents as elections in early 2015 draw closer. He risks growing resentment from a northern population who believe he is out of touch with their troubles. It is also becoming a drain on Africa's second largest economy - Nigeria allocates a fifth of its budget for security. Hajja eventually escaped by feigning severe stomach pains. Thinking her too ill to flee, the insurgents sent her to hospital escorted only by an older woman. Once she was among other people, Hajja threatened to denounce the group to police, prompting the woman to abandon her and flee. "I finally tore off the veil and I cried," Hajja said. "So many times I thought I'd die."(Additional reporting by Isaac Abrak in Abuja and Ibrahim Mshelizza and Lanre Ola in Maiduguri; Editing by Tim Cocks and Alastair Macdonald). Catching Our Eye.

Around 30,000 Eritreans have been abducted since 2007 and taken to Egypt's Sinai, where they face torture and ransom demands, according to a study presented to the European Parliament. The study, conducted by an Eritrean human rights activist and professors from a Dutch University, says more than $600m has been accrued from families in ransom payments. "[The hostages] are chained together without toilets or washing facilities and dehydrated, starved and deprived of sleep," the report says. "They are subject to threats of death and organ harvesting... Those who attempt to escape are severely tortured."

Two years after the NATO-backed uprising that ousted Muammar Gaddafi, Libya is still in messy transition with no new constitution and its temporary assembly caught in deadlock between an Islamist party and political rivals. As in Tunisia and Egypt where autocratic leaders were ousted in the Arab Spring revolts, Libya has seen fierce debate over the role of Islam in its new democracy with the rise of hardline Islamists long oppressed by Gaddafi. "Islamic law is the source of legislation in Libya," the General National Congress said in a statement after the vote on Wednesday (Dec. 4). "All state institutions need to comply with this."

A popular vote is intended within 30 days of Monday's release. What's in it? The Washington, D.C.-based Atlantic Council has published a close study of the document, including a detailed examination of changes affecting religious freedom. In the draft, Islam remains the official state religion, and the principles of Sharia remain "the primary source of legislation", though the document no longer contains language that defines those principles and instead leaves the matter to the courts.

Peace efforts in Tanzania 'useless'. Christian leaders in Tanzania have said peace efforts between Christians and Muslims in the country have proved useless after the recent burning of two churches. The torching of a Lutheran church in Korogwe and Evangelical Assemblies of God church in Kalalani have caused the union of church denominations in the Tanga region, in northeastern Tanzania, to reject the government's peace platform, which requires Muslim and Christian leaders to discuss various religious issues, and to petition for something more effective. "The situation these days is not good," said Dr Jothan Mwakimage, a bishop, who chaired the Christian group. "We need to come up with another peace committee to be set by ourselves because the government platform has failed to deal with the matter." Chairperson of the defence and security committee, Chiku Gallawa, added: "Peace is important to all the people, regardless of their faith. Therefore, all of us must be responsible for ensuring that the peace we have prevails for the benefit of the present and future generations of this nation." Source: Tanzania Daily News. Terrorist link to torched churches. Russia's Tatarstan Republic is offering 1 million rubles ($30,000) for information relating to the recent torching of several Orthodox churches in the region. Four Orthodox churches were set on fire in the predominantly Muslim Republic in November and explosives were found in the city of Tuban Kama and the Aleksei district, reports Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty. Investigators classified the attacks as vandalism and arson, but Tatarstan's prosecutor-general insisted they should be investigated as terrorism. Seven Orthodox churches have been burnt down in the past six months. The Central Spiritual Board of Russian Muslims has condemned the arson attacks, saying: "There is no doubt that such action is an attempt to stir up sectarian discord and ethnic hatred". Satellite evidence of CAR destruction. Human Rights Watch has released satellite images of the destruction caused during a recent attack on the village of Camp Bangui in the Central African Republic.
The images, recorded on the morning of November 23, show half the village burnt to the ground.

"The regime... continues to trample on the fundamental rights of its own people, including the right to freedom of religion or belief," he writes. Christians 'held' in Syrian town. Following a reported Islamist invasion on the town of Deir Atieh in Syria, north of Damascus, Fides reports that Christians are being prevented from leaving.
"The militiamen examine the identification documents of those who intend to leave the city and retain those who have Christian names," states Fides. ASIA/SYRIA - The village of Deir Atieh invaded by Islamists: Christians identified and detained. Damascus - Militants of Islamist factions have invaded the town of Deir Atieh, north of Damascus, spreading terror, death and destruction. As Fides sources in the Greek Orthodox Church report, the attack took place on 22 November. The militants entered the municipal hospital and took hostage the sick. The museum of Deir Atieh that welcomed thousands of works and precious archaeological finds was devastated. Mosques and churches were hit and damaged. Numerous homes were looted and civilians captured and used as human shields. The situation is particularly worrying for Christians. The population, about 25 thousand people, have begun to flee. The militiamen examine the identification documents of those who intend to leave the city and retain those who have Christian names. To be able to leave the village, a Greek Orthodox priest had to say he was married and present himself with a woman: he was allowed to go just because he had an Arab name and had no ancestry or Christian reference.Fr. F.H., who in a note sent to Fides requested anonymity for security reasons, pleads the international community and the Holy See to mobilize in order to arrange for the release of the hostages and save the village of Deir Atieh. It is not clear, notes the source of Fides, what prompted the armed gangs to penetrate the village. Even hundreds of people from Qara, another Syrian village in the mountains of Qalamoun, 90 km from Damascus had found refuge. In recent weeks, Qara had been attacked by Islamist fighters from the city of Arzal. Among the refugees of Qara, who moved to Deir Atieh, there is also the Greek-Catholic priest Father George Luis and all his parishioners.

Burma is moving towards greater interfaith freedom of expression, but challenges remain, according to Christian Solidarity Worldwide's Benedict Rogers, writing for the Wall Street Journal. Rogers notes that, while the country has made great strides in recent years, there is an ongoing threat of ethnic and religious violence. However, he states that "the prospect of guns falling silent across Burma for the first time in over 65 years may be closer than ever".
"But at the same time," Rogers writes, "We heard testimonies of sexual violence, forced labour and religious discrimination from Chin Christians. Over the years, Chin state has suffered from a chronic lack of basic services, including infrastructure and medical care, thanks to the previous regime's deliberate policy of subjugation. If real change is to be secured, policies based on ethnicity or religion must end." Burma is predominantly Buddhist, but many of the non-Burmese ethnic nationalities have significant Christian populations, while Muslims may account for up to 10% of the population.

Malaysia's 'Allah' impasse. Published: January 24, 2014 by Matt K. George. Christians remain adamant that their right to use 'Allah' is constitutional.

Should Malaysia's Muslims alone be afforded the right to use the word 'Allah'?Should Malaysia's Muslims alone be afforded the right to use the word 'Allah'?
Abu Emran / Flickr / Creative Commons. "God, what is your religion?" This cryptic question, spotted on a T-shirt at a packed public meeting on religious freedom in the Malaysian city of Petaling Jaya last week, sums up the enormity of Malaysia's 'Allah' controversy.
The wearer was a Malay Muslim woman, according to The Malaysian Insider, demonstrating solidarity with the minority Christian population as tensions rise in the country over who can use the term 'Allah'. The controversy – for which many Malaysian Christians blame the Government – has now reached a serious impasse. The Christian community remains adamant that the use of 'Allah' is their right, despite a ruling by the Court of Appeal last October that 'Allah' was exclusive to Malay Muslims. The word predates the birth of Islam and the ruling has been widely criticised by many other Muslim nations, and by the United Nations. About 64 per cent of Malaysia's Christians come from the Borneo states of Sabah and Sarawak, where the term has been part of their vocabulary for more than 100 years. The indigenous populations of the two states, whose primary language is Bahasa Malay, claim the usage is their constitutional and spiritual right. The Malay Bible dates back to the 16th century and, as the government phases out English in favour of Bahasa Malay, more and more Christians observe their faith in Bahasa Malay. "All the churches are of one mind," said Rev. Dr Hermen Shastri, the general secretary of the Council of Churches of Malaysia. "We are only defending our freedom to practise our religion as guaranteed under the Constitution."
Nevertheless, Islamic conservatives have staged demonstrations outside churches, seized Bibles and continued to vilify the Catholic pastor, Rev. Lawrence Andrew, who took the issue to the courts.
In early January Andrew was questioned over charges of sedition, which drew international complaints, including a piece in The Wall Street Journal. The Malay Bible is titled 'Alkitab' in the local language, which means 'The Book'.The Malay Bible is titled 'Alkitab' in the local language, which means 'The Book'. World Watch Monitor. Following the raid on the Bible Society of Malaysia two weeks ago and the seizure of more than 300 Bibles in the Malay language, the Islamic Religious Department of the state of Selangor (JAIS) posted an advertisement in The Star, an English language newspaper, defending its actions. The National Fatwa Council, comprising the muftis, or Islamic scholars, of the states of Malaysia, publicly backed JAIS's swoop in which they also arrested two officials of the Bible Society. These actions, in a country once renowned for multiracial harmony, go against the grain of a 10-point plan pronounced by the Government of Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak in April 2011 to resolve the issue. The key element of the pledge emphasised that Christians are allowed to print, import and distribute Bibles, referred to as the 'Alkitab' ('The Book') in the Malay language. The Prime Minister has so far refrained from defending his policy, while churches have asked him to speak out and to rein in Islamic extremists. But many Christians say they fear Prime Minister Najib cannot be seen to capitulate on Christian usage of 'Allah', since it would give ammunition to his political enemies in his ruling United Malays National Organisation party (UMNO), who could seek to oust him from office. Since the party brands itself as the champion of Malay Muslim supremacy and the defender of Islam, it provides tacit support to JAIS and Muslim extremists within UMNO. The Prime Minister's ambivalence is unhelpful, according to Rev. Shastri, who said: "The Government should remain consistent. It is the same Government that came out with the 10-point plan. It should also defend the Constitution." The Methodist priest has called on Christian ministers in Government, such as Idris Jala, who was a key architect of the 10-point plan, to impress upon the Prime Minister the need to protect religious freedoms. The 'Allah' controversy began in 2007 when the Government banned The Herald, a Catholic weekly, from using the word. The Catholic Church contested the order and the High Court restored its constitutional right in 2009. The Government appealed that decision and in October 2013 a three-man Court of Appeal ruled that Malay Muslims had an exclusive copyright to the word 'Allah'. Legal experts say the court's decision is flawed and that its ruling, if ratified, should only apply to The Herald and not to other Christian literature, such as the Alkitab, or in liturgy. The Catholic Church has now filed an application for leave to appeal to the Federal Court, the highest legal authority in the land. Liberal Malaysians hope an enlarged bench of 13 judges, including the Chief Judge of the Borneo states, would adjudicate on the issue. The hearing is scheduled for March 5. Whether any court decision will appease the rival sides is debatable. "Nothing is changing," said Bolly Lapok, Bishop of Kuching, the capital of Sarawak, and Archbishop of the Anglican Church of the Province of South-East Asia. "We won't stop using the word 'Allah'." The right to freedom of worship was enshrined when Sarawak and Sabah joined Malaysia in 1963. Christian and political leaders in the two states have threatened to break away from the Malaysian union if the Government forces their hand on the 'Allah' issue.
Most Malaysians are against such an outcome. Given the lack of political will to end the deepening rift, an alternative suggestion was to invite the Rulers' Council, comprising the nine hereditary Sultans, to convene and rule on the issue.

World Watch Monitor. Political observers say that religious insecurities are being whipped up to defer attention away from the Government's economic and political difficulties. The Government was recently forced to cut back on decades of subsidised petrol and sugar prices as the national debt has reached unsustainable levels. The inevitable rise in the cost of living has fuelled public anger and protests. The scheduled introduction of a Government Services Tax in April 2014 is set to further escalate the cost of goods. Public corruption, scandals, the lavish lifestyle of ministers and cohorts, and a lack of accountability have all severely damaged the Government's record and the economy in a resource-rich nation. In this volatile mix of rising prices and protests, on top of the 'Allah' controversy, Christians are concerned. The Christian Federation of Malaysia (CFM), in a statement last week, observed: "What we are witnessing is the mad scramble by any and every group to grab media attention… [but] the Christian community remains undaunted in the face of these and no doubt future incidents of this nature." Rev. Dr Eu Hong Seng, chairman of the CFM, added: "We look to the courts of this land to protect, preserve and defend principles of our Federal Constitution." Christians meanwhile have taken succour from progressive Muslim groups such as Sisters of Islam, which rallied to their support, distributing flowers outside a church where Islamists had planned to protest. For this act of solidarity, conservative Islamists demanded their arrests.
Other Muslim protagonists, such as Azmi Sharom, an outspoken law lecturer, point out that nowhere in the Qur'an does it say that 'Allah' is exclusive to Muslims. "Is [Islam] a religion that is so small in its worldview that it can approve of one community claiming the term for God for itself? Is Islam so lacking in common decency and compassion?" he said. Meanwhile, the former Law Minister Zaid Ibrahim blogged: "The unwillingness of UMNO leaders to find a peaceful solution to the 'Allah' issue is a clear sign of the march towards authoritarian rule. Invoking the name of God is just a ruse to gain support for a new dictatorship." The wearer of the T-shirt posed a fundamental question. The ball is now in the court of the Malaysian Government to openly demonstrate that it subscribes to the ethos of its own Constitution, its own 10-point resolution, and that it will uphold freedom of religion for all.

David Degner, Getty Images. The plight of Christians around the world was discussed in a three-hour debate at the Houses of Parliament in London yesterday. Members of the House of Commons were told that the persecution of Christians is increasing, that one Christian is killed around every 11 minutes around the world, and that Christianity is the "most persecuted religion globally". A long list of countries in which life as a Christian is most difficult was discussed, including Syria, North Korea, Eritrea, Nigeria, Iraq and Egypt. MP Jim Shannon said the persecution of Christians is "the biggest story in the world that has never been told". He said that although the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion is enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, there are many countries in which these rights are not given. Shannon alleged that 200 million Christians will be persecuted for their faith this year, while he said that 500 million live in "dangerous neighbourhoods". He added that in Syria Christians are "caught between opposing sides in the conflict", and mentioned the "specific targeting" of Christian-dominated locations, such as Sadad and Maaloula. MP Sammy Wilson said that in Syria, "50,000 Christians have been cleared from the city of Homs", while in Sudan two million Christians were killed by the regime over a 30-year period. He added: "Within the last month, hundreds of people, from Nigeria to Eritrea to Kazakhstan to China, have been arrested and put in prison simply because of their faith, and when they go into prison they are denied due process. They are denied access to lawyers. They are sometimes even denied knowledge of the charges facing them. They can languish in prison for a long time and in horrible conditions… This is not only happening in Muslim countries. From Morocco to Pakistan, Christians in Muslim countries are under threat, but it happens elsewhere too." The recent comments of Baroness Warsi at a lecture in Washington were echoed, including her assertion that "the parts of the world where Christianity first spread is now seeing large sections of the Christian community leaving, and those that are remaining feeling persecuted". MP Nigel Dodds said that the "persecution of Christians is not new", but that it is "staggering" how many Christians are killed today. In Iraq, he noted the words of Canon Andrew White, who had said that Christians are "frightened even to walk to church because they might come under attack. All the churches are targets… We used to have 1.5 million Christians, now we have probably only 200,000 left… There are more Iraqi Christians in Chicago than there are here". Sir Edward Leigh said the remaining number of Christians in Iraq was likely to be closer to 600,000, but that this was still a shocking figure and that "things have become much worse since the invasion". "Within the last month, hundreds of people, from Nigeria to Eritrea to Kazakhstan to China, have been arrested and put in prison simply because of their faith." MP Sammy Wilson. MP Rehman Chishti said: "I come from a Muslim background, and my father was an imam… I know it is absolutely right and proper to have a debate on the subject". He called the persecution "completely and utterly unacceptable" and "a very sad state of affairs". He also quoted his "good friend" the former Bishop of Rochester, Michael Nazir-Ali: "He told me that the persecution of Christians was taking place in more than 130 of the 190 countries in the world at the moment". During the debate, the oppression experienced by Christians in China and Malaysia were also highlighted and outlined. As the British Prime Minister is currently in China, MP David Rutley raised the issue of the sizeable Christian community in China, and asked about the potential establishment of a deeper inter-faith dialogue to engage the Chinese authorities with Christian groups. Meanwhile, a UK-based organisation has claimed that the number of countries posing an extreme risk to the human rights of their populations has risen by 70 per cent in the past five years. Risk analysis company Maplecroft (which researched 197 countries for its annual Human Rights Risk Atlas 2014) says that since 2008 the number has risen steeply from 20 to 34, predominantly comprised of countries in the Middle East and Africa. Syria tops the list, followed by Sudan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Pakistan, Somalia, Afghanistan and Iraq. Thu Jan 09, 2014 2:43. Syria: Survivor Recounts How Terrorists Beheaded a Youth on Homs-Marmarita Road. #TEHRAN ( #FNA) Terrorists opened fire on a car on the Homs-Marmarita road on Tuesday night and then attacked the two passengers, beheading one of them. Firas Badr Nader, who survived the attack, told SANA's correspondent at Al-Bassel Hospital in Tartous that he and his friend Fadi Michael Matta were coming back from work in a hotel in Homs when five terrorists intercepted them and opened fire on the car. Nader said that he was shot and lost control of the car, causing it to crash, and as the terrorists approached the car he played dead, and then the terrorist dragged him and his friend out of the car and tied the latter's hands. He then heard one of the terrorists instructing one of his accomplices to "slit his throat" at which point they decapitated Matta, then they stole all the documents and money they had and fled after trying to burn the car and failing. After he was sure that the terrorists had left, Nader opened his eyes and saw that Matta was lying down covered in blood and decapitated. He said he ran until he reached a friend's house in al-Meshtaye area where he called the authorities, and an ambulance arrived soon at the scene of the crime and transported Nader to Al-Bassel Hospital and took Matta's body to a hospital in Marmarita.

CAR crisis 'far from over' The crisis in the Central African Republic is far from over, despite the resignation of President Michel Djotodia, according to a local Catholic archbishop. "The shooting has ceased, but the tensions are still there," said Nestor Desire Nongo-Aziagbia, archbishop of Bossangoa. "Resignation is a first step towards solving the crisis." The archbishop added that politicians must now elect someone to "bring the people together". Nearly one million people have been displaced since the beginning of the conflict in March. More than 100,000 are camped at Bangui's airport, while others are sleeping in churches and mosques. Source: RNS. CAR President Djotodia resigns. Central African Republic's first Muslim president Michel Djotodia has resigned from office at a regional summit aimed at ending the violence that has engulfed the country. Djotodia took power from former president Francois Bozizé in a coup in March last year, as head of the now-disbanded Séléka rebel forces. Séléka forces were accused of gross human rights abuses, including mass rape and murder, and of specifically targeting Christians. Violence has continued between the disbanded group and self-defence militias named anti-Balaka (anti-Machete). Christians had protested for Djotodia's removal from power before Christmas.

Herald boss investigated over 'Allah'. The director of Malaysia's Catholic Herald newspaper, at the centre of the storm regarding Christians' use of the word 'Allah', is being investigated for comments made in an article on December 27 claiming Catholics have a right to use the word. Lawrence Andrew, who is also a Catholic priest, is being investigated for "sedition", reports Fides. This follows the seizure by the country's top Islamic authority, alongside police, of more than 330 Malaysian bibles from the Malaysian Bible Society last week because they used the word 'Allah' for God. The Islamic Religious Department claims the use of the word 'Allah' should be reserved for Muslims alone. In a separate development, the Malaysian government has moved to ban the country's leading coalition of 54 human rights NGOs, COMANGO, which reported to the UN Human Rights' Council Universal Periodic Review (UPR) in 2013. The government says most of these NGOs are 'un-Islamic' and un-registered. COMANGO says as a coalition entity, it is not itself bound by registration legislation. During the UPR, COMANGO called for its government to sign the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, of which Article 18 is about the rights of religious freedom. A representative of the Malaysian government defended its religious restrictions, saying they are in the interests of public order. Vatican to hold peace talks. The Vatican has scheduled a meeting for Jan. 13 to discuss the potential for a cease-fire in Syria, ahead of UN-backed peace talks in Geneva, planned to start on Jan. 24. Bishop Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo told Vatican Radio that a cessation of hostilities was vital "in order to allow humanitarian aid, to create humanitarian corridors that at the moment don't exist, and the cessation of persecution against Christians and so-called interreligious martyrdom". He said that Syria's Christians fear they are being targeted systematically by Islamist rebels seeking to oust Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The Vatican said Egyptian politician Mohamed El Baradei and American economist Jeffrey Sachs will attend the meeting. Former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair has also been invited. 30 killed in Plateau State violence.

Farsi speakers banned from church, A church in Tehran has become the latest to close its doors to Farsi speakers. St. Peter's Evangelical Church in the Iranian capital is preventing speakers of the country's official language from attending following pressure from government officials, reports Mohabat News. Armenians and Assyrians will be permitted to attend the church, but the IDs of all congregants will be passed on to the government, Mohabat adds. In May, the Central Assemblies of God church in Tehran was forced to cancel all services in the Farsi language or face permanent closure. Following this, Mansour Borji, advocacy officer for human-rights group Article 18, said: "I am certain that the AOG church in Tehran will not be the last. If the Iranian government manages to close this church, the few remaining churches that have Farsi-speaking services will follow." Iranian converts arrested.
