    Muslim extremists recently shot their way into a home and executed 2 children because the family is Christian. Christians fear an Easter massacre/attack on them in their churches. Pressure has been increasing on them. "Neighbors are now receiving threatening letters. Some of the threats are from unknown groups," "They say, 'You have to be a Muslim, or else we will kill you.'" Late last month, the family of the two murdered children received a note warning that they would be killed and "doomed to hell." The next day, the gunman came and killed the two children, each with an AK-47...

    The Church property around the Christ the Savior Cathedral in Pristina turned into a squatting ground for Roma emigrants from Albania. The interior of the church is used as a public toilet. Pristina Municipal authorities (Albanians) and UNMIK keep tolerating the sacrilege despite warning of Bishop Artemije in January 2004 to protect the church and the church property. These horrific scenes of extreme lack of culture and savagery in the center of Pristina. In a statement for the ERP KIM Info Service, the Bishop added: "In addition to all the horrors and the destruction and desecration of over 140 churches...

    Dear Colleague: A humanitarian crisis is unfolding in Sudan and Congress must speak out. I have introduced H. Con. Res. 403 condemning the Government of the Republic of Sudan for its involvemnt in attacks against innocent civilians in the impoverished Darfur region of western Sudan. Raphael Lemkin in his book Axis Rule in Occupied Europe coined the word "genocide." Greek word "genos" (race), Latin word "cide" (killing). Genocide means "the deliberate and systematic destruction of a racial, political, or cultural group." It has been said the way we behave is really an indicator of what we truly believe, and belief...
  • Khartoum Violating Cease-Fire Agreement and Refusing to Allow UN into Specific Regions

    The National Islamic Front regime in Khartoum has, over fifteen years of tyrannical rule, assembled an unsurpassed record of bad faith, unspeakable cruelty, and massive human destruction. Presently this regime is denying two essential UN investigative teams access to the Darfur region. This ominous delay can only be for the purposes of better obscuring evidence for what Egeland himself has described as "ethnic cleansing" and "scorched-earth warfare" directed against the African civilian population---countenanced, indeed orchestrated by Khartoum. The Khartoum regime also continues to deny access to a four-person UN human rights investigating team that has been languishing on the Chad/Darfur...

    Sudan Jails Episcopal Priest Near Khartoum A Sudanese court jailed an Episcopal priest “indefinitely” last month for refusing to demolish a church he had built himself 11 years ago on the outskirts of Khartoum North. In a verdict announced on April 7, the Rev. Samuel Dobai Amum was ordered to tear down St. Matthew’s Parish in Takamol and surrender the land on which it was built to the “rightful owner.” “Amum said he couldn’t destroy something he has devoted to his Father in the Highest,” the newspaper Khartoum Monitor reported on April 29. “If the law sees it just to...

    Hundreds of police reinforcements flew into Indonesia’s Sulawesi island today, after gunmen opened fire on an Easter church service, wounding seven people. Saturday’s attack sparked fears of a return to open fighting between Muslims and Christians that erupted in 1999, killing about 1,000 people. More than 300 members of the Mobile Brigade paramilitary police unit are arriving in the region. No-one has been arrested over the shooting in the town of Poso in central Sulawesi 1,000 miles north east of Jakarta. Two of the injured remain in hospital, although their injuries are not believed to be life-threatening. Police have declined...

Beirut used to be known as the Paris of the Middle East, and in the well-to-do Christian and Sunni quarters of the city, the capital of Lebanon still manages to cast a spell. The central business district—a battleground on the dividing line between Christian East Beirut and Muslim West Beirut during the Lebanese civil war—has been rebuilt by a construction firm whose largest shareholder is Lebanon's prime minister, Rafiq Hariri, a billionaire entrepreneur. The cafés are thick with smoke and conversation in Arabic, English, and...

    The pastor of a small church in Pakistan was killed near Lahore after watching the world famous film "JESUS" with his wife and four children, Christian broadcaster Mission Network News (MNN) reported Friday, April 9, citing a leading human rights organization. MNN quoted the Voice of the Martyrs (VOM) as saying that the attack happened last week, April 2, when Pastor George Masih's, wife Aniata opened the door to go outside after the movie finished. "Two masked attackers burst in, one grabbed Aniata while the other shot George in the face and then hit him with the butt of the...

    All the hard work, all the bribes to diplomats and members of the media, all the subventions to public relations firms, all the enrolling in the Jihad against Israel even of “Christian” Muslims among the “Palestinian” Arabs such as Hanan Ashrawi, Naim Ateek, and Archbishop Sabbah, may now come to naught. With the Palestinian Authority (PA) inviting Hamas into its government, and with the Christian population among the “Palestinian” Arabs now so small (it was once over 20%, and now hovers under 3%, for they are all fleeing the thoroughly Islamized PA), the true nature of the Palestinian nationalist movement...

    Police arrested the spiritual leader of a small Islamic community in Budapest Tuesday during a visit President Moshe Katsav and suggested he was planning to bomb the city's Jewish museum. Two Syrians also were detained on related charges. Israeli officials and diplomats had earlier spoken of three Arab suspects arrested in the Hungarian capital on suspicion they were planning to kill Katsav. But senior law enforcement officials in Hungary denied that Katsav was the target of the planned attack. "During my meting with the Hungarian President, they told me that I may have been the target, but afterwards the information...

    Now that the Passover holiday has thankfully passed without major incident, it can be detailed that Israel's security forces prevented no fewer than ten serious terror attacks planned for the weeklong holiday. Among the attempted Palestinian terror attacks were a biological bomb including AIDS-infected blood that was to be detonated in Tel Aviv on the eve of the holiday. The Fatah cell planning the attack was apprehended before it could construct the extra-dangerous bomb. Medical experts said, however, that the chances of actually contracting AIDS in such an attack were small, as the infected blood would have to not merely...

    The Islam Commentaries ^ | April 12, 2004 | William Welty
    Way back a lifetime ago, on 14 January 2004 we published an op-ed piece in these Islam Commentaries about Jihad coming to Houston, Texas. A Muslim man named Mohammed Ali Alayed embraced the conservative tenets of Islam through a faith reawakening (I use this term reluctantly), murdered a Jew, and then confessed to the crime, which his own roommate witnessed as a near decapitation of the Jewish victim, Ariel Sellouk. We were astonished that the world press reported that Houston police said they didn't have a clue as to why Mohammed Ali Alayed killed Ariel Sellouk. On Easter Sunday, seemingly...

    In 1992, the socialist government in Madrid promoted legislation that recognized Islam's ancient tradition in the country, considering Spanish identity harmoniously interwoven with the Koranic religion. But the Muslim interpretation of Islam in Spain, beginning with conquest in 711 and ending in 1492, had a more militant twist. Scholar M. Amir Ali commented that Spain had actually been liberated by Muslim forces and its tyrants removed. Reflecting on March 11, as Muslim terrorism killed 200 and wounded 1,400 in Madrid, one wonders whether one day this event will also not be commemorated as a liberating moment. Central to the attitude...

    Muslims Kill 48 in Nigeria's Latest Incidence of Religious Violence Suspected Muslim militants armed with guns and bows and arrows killed at least 48 people in an attack on a farming village in central Nigeria.

    Endless JihadThe Truth about Islam and Violence Jihad. It was once a word unfamiliar to American ears. But in recent years it has become all too familiar. The actions of Muslim militants and terrorists have seared the word into American consciousness. Yet even with thousands of innocent civilians killed on American soil by Islamic terrorists, the full significance of the Muslim concept of jihad has not been grasped by the American public. In the days after September 11, 2001, American leaders rushed to portray Islam as a peaceful religion that had been "hijacked" by a fanatical band of terrorists. One...
