RIA Novosti ^ | 11/20/2009 | OrthodoxNet

Posted on 11/20/2009 9:46:15 AM PST by ezfindit

A Russian Orthodox priest, Fr. Daniel Sysoyev, who carried out missionary work among immigrants from ex-Soviet republics, many of them Muslims, received over a dozen death threats before his murder on Thursday, a Russian paper said.

Fr. Daniel of St. Thomas Church in Moscow foresaw his death, writing in his internet diary that he had received telephone threats from Muslims. Fr. Daniel’s evening ‘talks’ for inquirers included several especially designed for Muslims.

It couldn’t have been a muslim that committed the murder. Everyone knows that Islam is the religion of peace.

Thanks for that link.

This information broke my heart:
“Fr Daniel was 35-years-old and his wife and three children survive him. In recent years, he devoted much time to missionary work, in particular, he founded a school of street preachers in Moscow and began to organise similar courses in Saratov, Ulyanovsk, and Murmansk.”

This hits a little close to home. I have a good friend who is a missionary in Muslim lands, with his wife and baby. I worry about them, though I think they are doing good work.

If Islam ever take over the world, they will try and destroy Christianity and Judaism. Yet so many Christians and Jews continually make excuses for Islam.

True, only weak kneed and useful idiots are among the ignorant, sneaks, cheats and lair who promote this vile military and quasi-governmental movement that masquerades as a religion! Islam is an affront to humanity; as a side note, has anyone noticed that the Foreign Nations Association, aka U.N., is the biggest supporter of this dogma.

Well said! The OIC 57 Islamic nation org. is talking about making their own worldwide “human rights” council. Of course this will be a massive Sharia Law push and of course they will use the UN to push this.

There are so many of these murders.

For instance, last month or so in Pakistani Kashmir, two men who had contracted to work in Iraq for America were beheaded.

And the blood flows, the West is somnolent in its slumber.

Here’s the mention...

15. Two Kashmiris from the POK, who had gone to Iraq to work for a US contractor, were captured by unidentified elements and beheaded as a warning to people in Pakistan not to volunteer to work for US contractors in Iraq. The responsibility for the beheading was claimed in the name of an organisation called the Jaish-e-Islam (Army of Islam).

http://www.southasiaanalysis.org/papers36/paper3506.html

The 313 Brigade - International Terrorism Monitor - Paper No. 579

As an aside, if you have the time, back in 2002 I posted a bunch of stuff about the savage jihad in Kashmir, BARELY covered in ANY US media outlets, they’re bookmarked on my account page - schoolboys beheaded, bridegroom and bride decapitated in front of their families, a nightwatchman beheaded and his head, headnapped for a show and tell in Pakistani Mosques......so many tales of blood and savagery that one’s mind doesn’t have the capacity to process it all.

And also, www.dailyexcelsior.com for on the spot reporting about the fighting in Kashmir, lot less now, but still they keep killing jihadis entering from Pakistan almost daily.

Russian patriarch warns on attributing blame for priest's murder - The head of Russia's Orthodox Church warned on Friday against rushing to accuse "individuals or groups" of the murder of a priest in Moscow.

"Any murder is a grave sin. But the murder of a priest in a church is also a challenge to the law of God," Patriarch Kirill said. "This sin will not be left unrevenged by God. And justice will hopefully be ensured by people. But as long as the killer has not been identified, I ask you to refrain from any hasty accusations against individuals or groups."

Some nationalist lawmakers claimed Thursday's decision by the Constitutional Court to extend a ban on capital punishment in the country could have "inspired" the killer. "The priest was gunned down in a Moscow church. This happened when the Constitutional Court had virtually abolished the death penalty," A Just Russia member Vera Lekareva said.

Russian society split over death penalty ban - ....the Russian Orthodox Church approves the banning of the death penalty, believing it is a well-chosen step and it shows the humanity of Russian society. “It would be better if the society lived without the death penalty. It makes people more humane and gives enough time to criminals to be convicted of sin,” says priest Vsevolod Chaplin.

Hey wait a minute.

Isn’t EVERYONE playing by the rules of “tolerance” and “celebrating diversity?”

NO!!!???

Then it sounds like the Left has tricked us into swimming with bricks in our hands.
