Boy who was 'crucified' by Muslim
A Sudanese slave who was assigned to watch his Muslim master's camels was "crucified" when he was caught sneaking out to attend a Christian church, according to reports from Voice of the Martyrs.
The aid organization that helps persecuted Christians worldwide said the reports come from witnesses in the Sudan who were in contact with the youth, now about 15.
Damare Garang was seven when the attack happened, officials said. He had been captured by Islamic soldiers when his Sudanese village was attacked, and then sold as a slave to a Muslim family in Tuobon, Bahr el Gazel.
His duties were to tend the master's camels, but one day one fled.
"How could you do this? You will surely have to pay! You stupid slave, I should just kill you now," he was told.
However, the child escaped any injuries at that point.
Then the following day Damare, who had been raised in a Christian family, sneaked away for a time to a small church service across the village.
His master was waiting when he returned.
"Where have you been?" he was asked, and partly from fear and partly from not having another answer, he said, "to church."
"You have made two grave mistakes," the slave master said. "Yesterday you lost one of my camels, and today you worship with infidels!"
The master went to a barn and returned with a large board, some rusty spikes and a hammer, the report said.
"Frozen in fear, Damare was dragged out to the edge of his master's compound where he was forced to the ground with his legs over the board," the VOM report said. "The savage brutality of the master was unleashed as he proceeded to drive the long nails through Damare's knees and then nail his feet securely onto the board."
While Damare was screaming in agony, the slave master simply walked away.
The boy's help arrived in the form of a Good Samaritan who happened by, and saw the small boy. The man sneaked into the compound and carried the boy to a hospital where the board and nails were removed.
Damare later was released to the custody of his helper, with whom he lived for the next 18 months.
Once again, then, there was a militia attack on his village, and he was separated from his protector. When the Islamic army soldiers were driven off, a commander of village forces recognized Damare's speech as being of the Dinka tribe, and took charge of him.
That commander eventually adopted Damare, who now lives in Mario Kong.
He remains disappointed he is unable to run quickly like other boys, but he says he's forgiven his attacker, because Jesus was nailed to a cross to forgive all sins.
"Before leaving, we gave Damare a care package with mosquito netting, soap, new clothing, shoes, a hat, a new Bible, a soccer ball, and a fishing line and hooks," said the VOM report by Tom Zurowski.
"Please tell the Christian children in America to remember to pray for the children of Sudan," Damare told his visitors.
But I thought Christianity and Islam were equally dangerous? Could it be that Rosie was wrong????
Ladies and Gentlemen, the religion of peace.
This breaks my heart for this boy. I'm so glad he lived though, and got away from his evil muslim captor.
This child is already a better person than I'll ever be.
Whoa...this certainly made me stop and count my blessings...
but multiculturalism is still a good idea, right?
US immigration forms should have a checkbox for muslim applicants; if the box features a checkmark, the application should simply be DISCARDED.
Agreed. No Muslims should be allowed to live among civilized people.
If we do not do something about these genocidal bin laden loving f**kers soon I do not know how we will be able to call ourselves the defenders of freedom anymore.
God bless him and all who suffer for the cause of Christ.
The Religion of Peace allows this, as well as murder, rape, pillage of all those who aren't in the Religion of Peace.
Prayers for this boy and all those who are martyrs in waiting to the corrupt religion of Islam. May the Blessed Virgin Mary watch over them.
Careful. I know there is a lot of animosity toward the West in the Muslim world, but this smacks of the kind of anti-Jewish propaganda I used to read about as a kid - and crucifixication of young Christian children by Jews was a staple of that narrative...
where is the un, hollyweird elite, and the civil rights groups with respect to what it going on with the slavery and murder of innocents in sudan?
