Muslims set fire to church, paint ‘Allahu akbar’ on wall

Meanwhile, the Greek government is building a handsome mosque in Athens at taxpayer expense.

“Vandals On the Island of Crete Set Church on Fire, Write ‘Allah is Great,’” by Philip Chrysopoulos, Greek Reporter, December 18, 2016 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

Vandals on Saturday set fire on a Greek Orthodox church in the Lagolio village of Crete and wrote “Allah is great”, infuriating locals.

According to e-mesara.gr news website, unknown perpetrators set fire to the Church of Archangel Michael in Lagolio, burning holy icons and part of the chancel.

A passerby saw the fire and notified local residents who ran to put out the fire before it spread. The perpetrators had also written “Allah is great” in Arabic on the walls.

The desecration of the church took place between 3 to 5 p.m., according to police sources. Police forces from Heraklion and Tymbaki are investigating the incident.

The Church of Archangel Michael is an important pilgrimage for the region and attracts many believers from surrounding areas to its annual feast.

12-year-old Muslim boy targets Christmas market with nail bomb

“Authorities also told ZDF that the boy had been radicalized via social media and the Internet.”

Well, that neatly lets his family and his local Muslim community and mosque off the hook. But is it true? Have authorities investigated what is taught at his local mosque? Have they asked themselves why, if this boy had really been taught peaceful Islam by his parents and the mosque, he was so susceptible to the supposedly twisted and hijacked version of Islam he found on the Internet? Why haven’t they?

“Christmas Market Targeted With Nail Bomb by Boy, 12: German Officials,” by Andy Eckardt, NBC News, December 16, 2016:

A 12-year-old boy tried to detonate a nail bomb at a Christmas market in Germany, authorities said.

The explosive device was found near the Town Hall in Ludwigshafen earlier this month.

Hubert Stroeber, a spokesman for the local prosecutor’s office, told NBC News that it would “turn down an investigation in the case” due to the fact the boy is aged under 14.

However, Stroeber confirmed that Germany’s Federal Prosecutor had been informed about the incident.

The suspect was born in Germany but is of Iraqi heritage….

FOCUS quoted investigators as saying the “strongly radicalized” youth was likely “incited and instructed” by an “unidentified member of ISIS.”

He also had hoped to travel to Iraq to join ISIS last summer, it reported.

Due to the country’s laws regarding the age of criminal responsibility, the 12-year-old was not arrested but instead reportedly taken into foster care.

German security officials confirmed to NBC News’ partner ZDF that the details reported by FOCUS were correct.

Authorities also told ZDF that the boy had been radicalized via social media and the Internet….

Muslim migrant teens attack traditional Christmas parade in Austria

This a new kind of jihad. The people there don’t understand this violence, just as they don’t understand when Muslim migrants set cars alight and destroy public Christmas trees just for fun.

Such a disruption of the Krampus parade has never happened before. Most of the teens are Turkish Muslims, so why not deport? It will never happen.

CLASH AS TEENAGERS FACE OFF AGAINST KRAMPUS

The Local, December 13, 2016:

Things got a little more exciting than usual at the annual Krampus parade in the small town of St. Johann in Pongau when a group of teenagers attacked the demonic mountain spirits.

According to a report in the Oesterreich daily, a group of young Turkish teens were provoked by the boisterous display of the Krampus performers, and physically attacked them during a procession near Salzburg on Tuesday night.

The parade consisted of around 40 Krampus-costumed locals, many of whom had already thoroughly warmed themselves with a few drinks, as is traditional.

Krampus is part of a Christmas tradition at this time in Austria and parts of southern Germany, which sees a parade of masked young men, dancing through the street dragging chains and giant metal sleds with fire and noise-makers.

The Krampus is often known to punish onlookers, using long thin sticks to beat people around the legs, especially if they’re suspected of being naughty.

Usually, St. Nikolas is on hand to keep the lively mountain spirits in line, but on this occasion, it wasn’t enough, so police had to intervene with pepper spray.

At least one 15-year-old Turkish youth was arrested after attacking a Krampus with his fists.  Friends of his attempted to intervene in the arrest, however police quickly gained control, and made additional arrests.

YouTube censors video of pro-Jewish Muslim as ‘hate speech’

It’s peculiar that Islamic supremacists can get away with spewing hatred and propaganda on YouTube against Israel, Christians, Jews, and generally against the West, largely because of the ubiquitous fear of their critics being branded racists or “Islamophobes.” Westerners also have been bullied into a collective fear of Muslims because of global jihad violence and threats of the same. Interesting, however, that an Israel-supporting Muslim no longer has the cover of the “Islamophobia” propagandists. Had Kasim Hafeez been blasting the Jewish state, falsely accusing it of crimes against humanity and of practicing apartheid, and pushing the Boycotts, Divestments and Sanctions (BDS) narrative, he would not have been censored by YouTube.

Kudos to Kasim Hafeez. Let’s hope that more peace-loving Muslims speak the truth about jihad propaganda and Islamic anti-Semitic hatred and indoctrination.

The hallmark of democracy is freedom of speech, and this YouTube stunt is yet another indication of how endangered this freedom is becoming, as fearful Westerners self-impose Sharia. Whether YouTube’s reasons may be some leftist-jihadist alliance, political correctness or threats by jihadists, it is troubling when truth, explained in a personal testimony, is stifled by YouTube.

The video, titled, “Born to Hate Jews,” shows an interview with Kasim Hafeez, a British Muslim and pro-Israel activist, explaining how he overcame the anti-Semitic indoctrination that convinced him to try and join a terrorist group.

Fortunately, freedom fighters spoke out and YouTube responded, but with unacceptable restrictions:

A petition to restore the video promptly gathered over 105,000 signatures in less than a day. Late Monday evening, YouTube re-uploaded the video in “Restricted Mode,” partially restoring it. This mode marks the video as explicit content, similar to pornography, and effectively makes the video impossible to view on public internet connections at libraries and schools.

“YouTube Censors Video Of Pro-Israel Muslim As ‘Hate Speech’”, by Andrew Follett, Daily Caller, December 6, 2016:

YouTube removed a Prager University video of a Muslim explaining how visiting Israel “de-radicalized” him, claiming that the video was hate speech.

The video, titled, “Born to Hate Jews,” shows an interview with Kasim Hafeez, a British Muslim and pro-Israel activist, explaining how he overcame the anti-Semitic indoctrination that convinced him to try and join a terrorist group.

“In the video, Hafeez explains how he overcame the anti-Semitic indoctrination that radicalized him from an early age,” according to an email sent by Prager. “Within hours of the video’s release Monday morning, YouTube flagged it for ‘hate speech’ and took it down. PragerU is disputing YouTube’s removal of the video.”

A petition to restore the video promptly gathered over 105,000 signatures in less than a day. Late Monday evening, YouTube re-uploaded the video in “Restricted Mode,” partially restoring it. This mode marks the video as explicit content, similar to pornography, and effectively makes the video impossible to view on public internet connections at libraries and schools.

Prager is a conservative, nonprofit educational organization that produces short, educational videos. This isn’t the first time YouTube has targeted the group. YouTube put 21 of Prager University’s videos on “restricted mode” in October and currently still lists 18 PragerU videos under that mode.

Many parents set their children’s YouTube accounts to restricted mode to prevent viewing of inappropriate or obscene content, but none of Prager’s videos contain adult material……

Woolworths Cancels Christmas

A staff member reportedly told inquiring customers, “We are a Muslim business now. We do not want to sell Christmas articles.”

A local Woolworths store in North Dortmund, Germany has decided to skip Christmas this year. After receiving their entire Christmas sections – which included decorations, gifts and special holiday treats – the store, which is located in a predominately Muslim area, removed the entire display.

As reported by the UK’s Express, a staff member reportedly told inquiring customers, “We are a Muslim business now. We do not want to sell Christmas articles.”

Diana Presisert, a spokesperson for the company said although Woolworths was not a Muslim company, “In this branch …, however, demand was too low. Therefore the goods were distributed to other branches.”

Since the store was in a mainly Muslim area, “local conditions” justified the move, she said.

Christians currently make up only one-third of the population of North Dortmund after thousands of migrants from Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq were settled in the industrial town in the Ruhr Valley since 2015 when Germany began accepting immigrants en masse.

And the elites lecture us on tolerance and plurality.

‘They want us to be Islamised. They despise our country and our values’: Translator at German refugee camp says Muslim migrants display ‘pure hatred’ of Christians

By Gareth Davies For Mailonline, 17 November 2016

  • Arabic speaker has worked in several migrant centres across Germany
  • Unearthed harrowing revelations and went to mosques to find out more
  • Translator, 39, said she found Muslims wanted to ‘destroy’ Christians

A translator at German refugee camps has revealed Muslim migrants are showing ‘pure hatred’ toward Christians and want the country to be Islamised.

The Arabic speaker worked in a number of asylum centres across the country and went undercover to discover migrants were preaching ‘pure hatred’ about non-Muslims and women were planning to have more children to ‘destroy Christians’.

She said the hostility is also visible at asylum homes, where Muslim children refuse to play with Christians.

The Eritrean woman, 39, worked in several refugee centres across Germany and found fellow translators were part of the problem.

Talking to Catholic website Kath.net, she said they ‘show their true colours’ when Christians are out of ear-shot and they have a Muslim-only audience.

‘They want Germany to be Islamised. They despise our country and our values,’ she said.

She had arrived herself as a refugee in 1991, and has volunteered in asylum centres for five years to ‘give something back’.

After unearthing the worrying findings, she headed to the mosques to find out more.

‘Pure hatred against non-believers is preached, and children are brought here from an early age here in Germany,’ she told Kath.net.

‘It’s very similar in asylum housing, where Muslim boys refuse to play with Christians.

‘Some women told me “We will multiply our numbers. We must have more children than the Christians because it’s the only way we can destroy them here”.’

In an attempt to quell these feelings, she was told helping and defending Christians is a sin.

Germany has been rocked by terror attacks this year, heaping pressure on chancellor Angela Merkel’s open-door immigration policy.

A bloody week of violence that rocked Germany began on July 18 when Pakistani teenager Riaz Khan Ahmadzai, 17, posing as an Afghan refugee, hacked at passengers on a train in Wurzburg with an axe, wounding five.

He was shot dead by police.

Four days later mentally unstable German-Iranian teenager Ali Sonboly shot nine people dead during a rampage through a shopping centre in Munich before taking his own life.

Sonboly claimed he was taking revenge for being bullied at school with no political motive to the murderous rampage.

Iraqi Christians: Obama abandoned us to the Islamic State

“Obama has never helped the Christians. In fact, he despises them. In the last 26 months, he has shown he despises all of them. But we have hope in the new president, Trump.”

“Christians claim Obama ‘ABANDONED’ them to sick ISIS jihadis – and back Trump election win,” by Oli Smith, Express, November 6, 2016 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

IRAQI Christians will pray for Donald Trump’s election victory after they condemned US Government for “abandoning” them to the barbaric terror of Islamic State.

The Christian community in the latest Iraqi town to be freed from ISIS have opened up about how they were terrorised at the hands of the twisted jihadi militants.

The once-bustling Qaraqosh, which boasted of more than 50,000 Christian residents, was recaptured from the jihadis last week.

Residents who stayed in the town have described how ISIS told every Christian to pay a massive tax, convert to Islam or face execution.

Those who survived the terror have now voiced their outrage that President Obama refused to protect them when Iraq’s largest Christian city fell to ISIS more than two years ago.

A man in the village said he hopes Donald Trump – a widely favoured candidate in the town – will bring a different approach to Iraqi Christians.

He told the camera: “Obama has never helped the Christians. In fact, he despises them. In the last 26 months, he has shown he despises all of them.

“But we have hope in the new president, Trump.”

The first mass in the freed Christian town for more than two years

Donald Trump has previously spoken up about how Christians have been left to fend for themselves by the US government.

A Catholic priest in the town said: “The US government led by President Obama could have protected us – or at least helped us to protect ourselves.

“But unfortunately Obama abandoned us, and chose not to get involved.”

A young girl wearing a crucifix then added: “We hope this new guy called Trump will help us more than Obama did.”…

Gaza: Christians continue to be forced to convert to Islam

The plight of Christian living in Gaza under the Palestinian authority continues to worsen. According to a new Arabic language report, recent years have “witnessed a critical upsurge against the Christians,” who only amount to approximately 2,500 people—surrounded by approximately 1.5 million Muslims. Local authorities have abandoned the tiny minority to Islamist elements who have “placed great and continuous pressure” on the Christians.

“At times we hear of the bombing of a Christian bookshop and assaults on churches and other Christian institutions; other times we hear of the kidnapping of Christians and the coercion of them to embrace the religion of Muhammad,” says the report.

In mid October, Christians in Gaza led a protest, calling for the return of their kidnapped children and loved ones. They held up signs saying “I am a Christian and boast of my cross.” Bishop Alexios of the region “confirmed that the Christians who converted to Islam did so under threats, coercion, compulsion, and force.” His church also submitted a formal petition to the governor of the region, Ismail Haniyeh, calling on him to investigate matters, but received no response.

Palestinian Muslim leaders say that such Christians convert of their own free will and without pressure; however, these same Muslim leaders refuse to let their Christian families meet with or even learn the whereabouts of these recent converts, so they can confirm if their conversions were committed freely or under duress.

The report adds that Gaza’s Christians are calling on the Christian world to intervene. The bishop said that he is trying to communicate all of this to the Vatican, the United Nations, and the United States.

Muslims attack 743 Christian refugees and converts from Islam

“The documented cases confirm that the situation of Christian refugees in German refugee shelters is still unbearable. As a minority they are discriminated against, beaten up by and receive death threats from Muslim refugees and partly by the Muslim staff (securities, interpreters, volunteers) on grounds of their religion.”

But…but…”Islamophobia”!

More on this story. “743 Christian Refugees, Converts Attacked by Muslims in German Camps, Persecution Report Finds,” by Stoyan Zaimov, Christian Post, October 19, 2016:

Persecution watchdog group Open Doors has found that at least 743 Christian refugees living in camps in Germany were attacked by Muslim refugees in 2016, pointing to big failures on the part of German authorities when it comes to understanding the role of religion in the lives of refugees.

“The documented cases confirm that the situation of Christian refugees in German refugee shelters is still unbearable. As a minority they are discriminated against, beaten up by and receive death threats from Muslim refugees and partly by the Muslim staff (securities, interpreters, volunteers) on grounds of their religion,” found a major survey published by Open Doors Germany earlier in October, representing a number of organizations, such as Persecuted Christians and the Needy, European Mission Society Fellowship, and the Central Council of Oriental Christians in Germany.

“Taking these new cases into consideration there are now 743 Christian refugees who have reported religiously motivated attacks. With more staff at hand, a significantly higher number of cases could have been included in the survey,” it added.

The report noted that the latest numbers of persecuted refugees is most likely only the “tip of the iceberg” when it comes to religiously motivated attacks on Christians and Yazidis, estimating that there are high numbers of unreported cases as well.

The survey further reported that many of the refugees escaped from horrifying ordeals in Syria and the surrounding region, fleeing terror groups and civil war that have created a great humanitarian crisis, but are now also facing traumatizing conditions at German refugee camps, where they had hoped to find safety and security, but instead found injustice.

“We believe that the trivialization, concealment or misuse of this injustice, be it for political or other motives, will give encouragement to the perpetrators and increase the suffering of the victims,” the group stated.

“As a Christian charity, Open Doors is not against Muslims, as CEO Markus Rode has already made clear in a comprehensive statement in January 2015. It is a constitutive element of Christian faith that Muslims are loved by God and are to be met with love and compassion,” it added.

“At the same time it has to be stated that Islam, which is the majority religion in most of the refugees’ home countries, is responsible for the massive violation of the human right to freedom of religion. This is for example the case when Muslims threaten to kill converts while invoking the Quran as a basis for their action.”…

Nigeria: ‘Catholic priests have become an endangered species’

What is driving these Muslim herdsmen to persecute Christians and terrorize priests? Could it be that these priests drew Muhammad or dared to note that jihadis use Islamic texts and teachings to justify their actions? Or could it be that no amount of appeasement and self-abasement will move Islamic jihadists to ignore Qur’anic injunctions to wage war against and subjugate Christians?

“‘Priests Are An Endangered Species’ In Nigeria: One Kidnapped, Two Shot,” by Mark Woods, Christian Today, September 30, 2016:

A senior Nigerian priest has been kidnapped after the car in which he was travelling was stopped, allegedly by Fulani herdsmen.

Fr Emmanuel Dim, Rector of Tansi Major Seminary, was with two other priests, who were both injured when they were attacked on Monday. One of them, Fr Chukwuemeka, a university chaplain, was shot in the head and is receiving treatment in hospital.

According to the director of communications for the Diocese of Nnewi in Anambra State, Fr Hyginus Aghaulor, Dim is still being held by the kidnappers, who are demanding a ransom of N2.5 million (about £6,000 or $8,000).

However, Aghaulor said: “The Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria has decided and directed that ransom should not be paid for the kidnap of any of its priests and anybody that is demanding for ransom for the release of any priest kidnapped is wasting time. If anybody or group goes ahead to pay ransom for the release of any priest, the person or the group is on his own.”

He said: “One begins to wonder if Catholic priest have become [an] endangered species.”

The kidnapping is the latest in a spate of incidents involving clergy in Nigeria. On the same day a Vincentian priest whose name has not been confirmed was kidnapped with his brother. Another priest, Fr Emmanuel Ugwu, was kidnapped in August and a seminarian was murdered….

Conflict between the Muslim Fulani herdsmen and the Christian population reflects clashes between nomadic pastoralists and settled farmers, whose ways of life are in tension.
