The pendulum swings in Egypt


Egypt’s persecution of Christians intensifies

According to a 24 November 2017 OneNewsNow article, persecution of Christians has steadily increased.

The persecution watchdog, International Christian Concern (ICC), reports that it is becoming standard practice for Egyptian authorities to close a church whenever a Muslim mob forms to attack Christians and churches.

ICC’s Claire Evans pointed to an incident taking place on October 27, when a mob attacked St. George Church in a small village in Minya province.

“Even though the Christians did not start this – they clearly did not start it – they’re the ones who are being punished by having their church closed,” she explained.

Evans told OneNewsNow that it is very typical for authorities to close down a church in that situation.

“Mobs will form, or violent groups, or an individual will realize and tell themselves ‘All I have to do is give an appearance that some violence will occur,” he explained. “You don’t even have to start a mob – you just have to complain to the authorities – and the authorities will respond by closing down the church.”

Egyptian authorities try to give the appearance that they are all about safety, but they are actually about giving militant Muslims a free ticket to persecute Christians.

God bless Christians in Egypt for His provision of strength and patience. Whatever we can do to support these brothers and sisters in Christ, we must.

However, in the land of Islam, one not only has to fear the punishment for adhering to Christ, but also the punishment for not being the right type of Islam.

On the other hand, one notable figure did say regarding the treatment of Christians: “Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of mine, even the least of them, you did it to me..”

Death Toll in Egypt’s North Sinai Mosque Bombing Rises to 235

In a 24 November 2017 Newsmax article, the details of a Islamist attack on a mosque were detailed.

In the deadliest-ever attack by Islamic extremists in Egypt, militants assaulted a crowded mosque Friday during prayers, blasting helpless worshippers with gunfire and rocket-propelled grenades and blocking their escape routes. At least 235 people were killed before the assailants got away.

The attack in the troubled northern part of the Sinai Peninsula targeted a mosque frequented by Sufis, members of a mystic movement within Islam. Islamic militants, including the local affiliate of the Islamic State group, consider Sufis heretics because of their less literal interpretations of the faith.

The startling bloodshed in the town of Bir al-Abd also wounded at least 109, according to the state news agency, and it offered the latest sign that, despite more than three years of fighting in Sinai, the Egyptian government has failed to deter an IS-led insurgency.

President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi vowed that the attack “will not go unpunished” and that Egypt would persevere with its war on terrorism. But he did not specify what new steps might be taken.

It will be interesting to see if Egyptian authorities close the mosque in Bir al-Abd and if the Egyptians actually attack ISIS or if they scapegoat another group.

On the other hand, it will also be interesting to see if the government will put any efforts toward limiting the conflict between faiths (or between brands of Islam) to debate.

One has to wonder if the ISIS group that attacked this mosque was emboldened by the complacency of Egyptian authorities when it came to previous attacks on Christian churches (mentioned below and in other posts). Would this pendulum have swung back and hit the mosque if it had been caught after the swing at the church?

Egypt counter-attacks ISIS groups in the Sinai

A 26 November 2017 NZHerald article closed with these statements:

Private newspaper al-Masry al-Youm reported that more than 20 masked gunmen were involved in the attack with automatic rifles.

A three-day period of mourning has been declared for the victims. No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack.

Egypt later said it would delay the opening of the Rafah border crossing to Gaza after the attack because of security concerns.

The crossing had been due to open for three days from this weekend.

Striking at a mosque would be a change in tactics for the Sinai militants, who have usually attacked troops, police and Christian churches.

US President Donald Trump described the assault as a “horrible and cowardly terrorist attack” in a Twitter post.

“The world cannot tolerate terrorism, we must defeat them militarily and discredit the extremist ideology that forms the basis of their existence,” he said.

As mentioned before, there seems to be great peril in being in the wrong type of Islam. That is, within a religion that seeks to justify itself only by works, it seems that there are enough Islamists ready to declare other Muslims not Muslim enough.

It is too bad that, while Islam counts Jesus as a prophet, they do not follow Jesus’ example of forgiveness toward the adulteress. While there must be an accounting for sins (especially the idolatrous sin of murder), the offering of forgiveness brings us closer to God.

The example of Jesus with the adulteress

The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman caught in adultery, and having set her in the center of the court, they said to Him, “Teacher, this woman has been caught in adultery, in the very act. Now in the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women; what then do You say?” They were saying this, testing Him, so that they might have grounds for accusing Him.

But Jesus stooped down and with His finger wrote on the ground. But when they persisted in asking Him, He straightened up, and said to them, “He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.” Again He stooped down and wrote on the ground.

When they heard it, they began to go out one by one, beginning with the older ones, and He was left alone, and the woman, where she was, in the center of the court. Straightening up, Jesus said to her, “Woman, where are they? Did no one condemn you?”

She said, “No one, Lord.”

And Jesus said, “I do not condemn you, either. Go. From now on sin no more.” (John 8:3‭-‬11 NASB)

Tommy Robinson: Jailed in the British Sharia State


The Standard Only Covers the Arrest of Tommy Robinson, Not the Cause

A 10 May 2016 article in The Standard provided a strong left slant to a story that should not have happened to any part or full-time journalist.

“The former leader of right-wing group the English Defence League has been arrested after he tried ‘to video Muslims’ outside a court.

Tommy Robinson posted a video on his official Facebook account on Wednesday morning, in which he claimed the arrest was being made.

He said: ‘It’s 4.32 and the police are at my house, and I’m being arrested for going to a court case in Canterbury and trying to video the Muslim paedophiles.’

The clip then cuts footage of two police officers stood in what appears to be a kitchen, one of whom explains to Robinson that he can’t use his phone.

A tweet posted from Robinson’s verified Twitter account said that he was arrested ‘on charges relating to attempted journalism.’

Kent Police confirmed an arrest was made.

A spokesman said: ‘On the morning of Wednesday May 10, 2017 officers attended an address in Luton, Bedfordshire, and arrested a 34-year-old man for contempt of court.

‘The arrest is in relation to an incident at Canterbury Crown Court on Monday 8 May 2017.’

Any filming and recording of courts and court precincts is illegal in the UK under section 41 of the Criminal Justice Act 1925 and the Contempt of Court Act.”

One has to wonder why no journalistic integrity or curiosity seems to have gone into The Standard‘s presentation of what should have been an in-depth review of a governmental overreach into journalistic rights.

Hear the Full Story from The Rebel

The Rebel speaks out on the early morning arrest in a 10 May 2017 article and video.

“On May 10, 2017, just after 4 a.m., the Bedfordshire Police went to Tommy Robinson’s house, banged on his door, woke up his entire family, arrested Tommy, and took him to jail.

What did he do to deserve such a shocking visit? Why did the police have to come to his home in the dead of night — upsetting his wife and scaring his children?

I’ll tell you what he did, because I was there with him. Two days ago, Tommy Robinson and I went to the Canterbury Crown Court, to report on the trial of an alleged Muslim rape gang.

That’s it. That’s all we did. That’s why Tommy was arrested.

See, Tommy and I both work full-time for TheRebel.Media. And unlike the mainstream media that prefers to cover up horrific crimes like that, we report them. These four Muslim men are on trial for allegedly gang-raping a 16-year-old girl who wandered into their kebab shop asking for directions.

Tommy and I went to court to cover the story — and to ask the accused men some questions. That’s what real journalists are supposed to do.

Incredibly, when court officers saw Tommy, they actively worked with the accused men to sneak them out of the court through another door, so we couldn’t film them!

Just whose side are the police on?

Well, we found out at 4 a.m. this morning, didn’t we?

The police claim that Tommy was in ‘contempt of court’ for filming his report outside the courthouse — for ‘livestreaming’ some quick comments from his cell phone while standing on the court house steps.

But that’s where journalists report on court cases all the time. Tommy didn’t do anything unusual.

He didn’t film anyone other than himself. And when a court official asked him to move, he did.

We did our work, and then we left. If Tommy had done anything wrong, why didn’t the police say something, right then and there?

Why would Bedfordshire police, nearly two hours’ drive away from Canterbury, be involved at all?

Why did they raid his home at 4 a.m.?

And why did they only arrest Tommy — and not me and our cameraman, who were there with him?”

Action Items for Tommy Robinson

At the bottom of the article by The Rebel, there are a few suggested action items for those of us who value journalistic freedom.

“And here’s what I think we need to do together:

  1. Sign our petition to Chief Boutcher:  ‘We demand that the Bedfordshire Police stop harassing Tommy Robinson, the UK’s leading independent journalist, and his family.’ Please click here to sign the petition.
     
  2. Help us fight back in the court of law. We’ve hired a leading law firm to go to bat for Tommy. Even before sunrise, they were working to get Tommy back home to his family. They’re still at it right now. But lawyers cost money. Will you please help us chip in, to save Tommy? Please click here to help defray our legal costs.

We’re doing important journalism that’s in the public interest. That includes telling the truth about the wave of Muslim rape gangs that have exploited thousands of British girls.”

Several oversights concerning a report on a Chechen program to eliminate gays


The Guardian reports on the Chechen program to eliminate gays

A 13 April 2017 article in The Guardian details how Chechens have started on a campaign to eliminate gays.

“At least once a day, Adam’s captors attached metal clamps to his fingers and toes. One of the men then cranked a handle on a machine to which the clamps were linked with wires, and sent powerful electric shocks through his body. If he managed not to scream, others would join in, beating him with wooden sticks or metal rods.

As they tortured him, the men shouted verbal abuse at him for being gay, and demanded to know the names of other gay men he knew in Chechnya. ‘Sometimes they were trying to get information from me; other times they were just amusing themselves,’ he said, speaking about the ordeal he underwent just a month ago with some difficulty.

Adam’s testimony, as well as that of another gay Chechen man with whom the Guardian spoke, backs up reports that a shocking anti-gay campaign is under way in the Russian republic of Chechnya, involving over a hundred and possibly several hundred men. Some are believed to have been killed.

Adam was held in an informal detention facility with more than a dozen other gay men, who were all subjected to torture on a daily basis. A similar ‘mop-up’ campaign by governmental security forces took place in towns across the republic.”

Since the Tsarnaev brothers hailed from Chechnya and Islam in Russia identifies 93.5% of Chechens as Muslims, it seemed odd that The Guardian would overlook these facts on Chechnya and fact that many traditional Muslims look down on the gay lifestyle.  Could the growing Muslim minority in England or the attack on Westminster Bridge have a dampening affect on providing the entire picture in this article?

Since this blog tries to balance between providing news that might be important to Christians, adding a Christian perspective to events, and supplying the hope integral to the Christian life — it seems only right to point out that I don’t advocate for the gay lifestyle. Just as I would not encourage married people to destroy their lives through adultery or suggest people take life as if they were God, I don’t suggest that anyone get involved in a lifestyle that misses the mark. Rather, I would point to the hope of Christianity.

I’ll explain more in a separate post comparing Islam’s reaction to homosexuality to Christianity’s reaction.

Professors in the news: Part 1, the bad ones

Muslim professor punishes Christian for disagreeing with the Muslim view of the crucifixion

A Christian is punished for “threat of disruption”

A 28 March 2017 article in Christian Headlines reveals a case of professorial bias gone wild.

“A conservative Christian student at a private college in Florida says he was suspended after he opposed his Muslim professor, who said that the crucifixion of Jesus was a hoax.

Marshall Polston, a 21-year-old sophomore, was suspended from Rollins College in Winter Park, Fla. In late March for being a ‘threat of disruption.’

According to the Central Florida Post, Polston said he challenged Professor Areeje Zufari during their ‘Muslim Humanities’ class when she said that Jesus wasn’t crucified and that his disciples didn’t actually believe Jesus was God.

Polston said he was then given a grade of a 52 on his next essay.

‘I was upset, understandably. I’ve never gotten anything less than straight A’s,’ Polston said. ‘So, I was really interested in figuring out how to possibly improve or at least understand the grade.’

He spoke with the professor, but Polston said she then reported him to the college’s Dean of Safety.

Later, Polston was asked to report to the dean’s office.

‘They made it clear that they had not gotten a report about what the student said, and were more concerned about the danger I was causing to the campus,’ Polston said. ‘What danger? A difference of opinion in a college classroom is nothing out of the ordinary and certainly not dangerous. It was surreal and degrading.’

Rollins College has not released a comment regarding the suspension.”

(Read more at Christian Headlines)

So the student professes his support of the Christian account of Christ’s crucifixion, the professor counters with her belief in the Muslim account of the crucifixion, and then the student is suspended for a safety violation that seems to be unsupported.  Still, the college supports the professor.

In contrast, a Muslim’s threat of injury to gays in that class didn’t violate safety standards

From the same story, an instance of anti-gay bigotry occurred, but was not reported as a safety violation.

“In another of Zufari’s classes, during a discussion of Sharia law, a Muslim student argued that ‘a good punishment for gays, adulterers, and thieves was the removal of a certain body part, as determined by Sharia law.’

His comments were not reported as unsafe, Polston said.”

Good news: the Christian student has been removed from suspension

The Washington Times reported in a 31 March 2017 article that Marshall Polston has been removed from the academic suspension that resulted from charges made by a Muslim professor.

“Florida’s Rollins College has lifted the suspension of a student who rhetorically clashed with a Muslim professor over the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

Sophomore Marshall Polston was suspended March 24 by Rollins College in Winter Park after arguments over the historical accuracy of Jesus’ execution at Calvary. Professor Areej Zufari also filed a report with the Dean of Safety, which claimed Mr. Polston violated an order to stay away from class. An investigation by the school — buttressed by video surveillance and a receipt — vindicated the student’s claims that he was innocent.

‘A student’s freedom of speech and expression are the cornerstones of liberty in a free society,’ Mr. Polston’s attorney, Kenneth Lewis, said in a statement after the suspension was lifted, The Orlando Sentinel reported Friday.

Rollins College President Grant Cornwell told the newspaper that he could not go into specifics for privacy reasons, but condemned ‘hatred and violent imagery’ that was emailed to the school during this week’s media coverage.

The Central Florida Post, which first broke the story, uploaded school documents the cleared Mr. Polston on Friday. “

(Read more at The Washington Times)

Now that we know that the student never made threats against the professor and that this professor lied to college officials about the student’s actions, this professor should no longer work in a position of authority over students.  If the college wants to pay her a teacher’s salary and put her in a tutoring position, then that would not bother even the least observant.

Professor Zufari also linked to terrorist organization

FrontPage magazine reported on 4 April 2017 regarding ties between Areej Zufari and at least one Islamic terror organization.

“Zufari served as the spokesperson and Director of Communications for the Islamic Society of Central Florida (ISCF) from 2001 to at least 2004, according to the author bio from her 2012 book “Beyond the Headlines” and press communications from the organization. ISCF’s main mosque, Masjid al-Rahman, is owned by the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT), which was classified by federal prosecutors as both an un-indicted co-conspirator in the 2008 Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing case and as an entity that is or was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood.

In this case, the Muslim Brotherhood’s goals were identified as “establish[ing] a network of organizations in the U.S. to spread a militant Islamist message and raise money for Hamas,” and “eliminating the State of Israel through violent jihad.” Former FBI special agent Robert Stauffer stated that NAIT’s role in the Muslim Brotherhood is that of a nonprofit financial holding company, according to the Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel.”

Drexel Professor George Ciccariello-Maher makes a habit of offending

Before Christmas, he wishes for White genocide

Just prior to Christmas 2016, Drexel University professor George Cccariello-Maher provided an 8-word tweet that put him into the 29 January 2017 edition of the Philadelphia Inquirer, where the following was reported.

“It started with an eight-word tweet by a Drexel University professor on Christmas Eve: ‘All I want for Christmas is white genocide.’

George Ciccariello-Maher said he meant his post to be satirical, a way to mock white supremacists who use the term to oppose interracial marriage or other dilution of their race.

But his words unleashed a torrent: Thousands of emails and phone calls. A campaign to have him fired.”

After this first instance of diarrhea of the mouth, I wonder just how much professor would penalize a student for hoping for a similar action to occur for one of his pet groups. I wonder even more about the federal and private dollars being directed to this cesspool of a university.

Next, Professor Ciccariello-Maher insults the military and patriotic supporters

As reported in a 31 March 2017 Philadelphia Inquirer article, the cowardly professor that shut down his account after the first widely-protested tweet has set his account to “private” after another insulting tweet.

“Controversial Drexel University professor George Ciccariello-Maher is tweeting again.

Ciccariello-Maher, an associate professor of politics and global studies, made headlines on Christmas Eve after tweeting, “All I want for Christmas is white genocide.”

On Wednesday, he tweeted his way back into the news cycle.

‘Some guy gave up his first-class seat for a uniformed soldier. People are thanking him,’ Ciccariello-Maher tweeted. ‘I’m trying not to vomit or yell about Mosul.’

Since the tweet went viral, Ciccariello-Maher set his account to private.”

Northern Arizona University cuts points from a student for using “mankind”

Cailin Jeffers, an English major at Northern Arizona University, had points taken off a paper because she used “mankind” in a paper. When reported in the 29 March 2017 edition of the Washington Times (quoted below), this story came into its own on Twitter.

“A battle for ‘mankind’ is taking place inside a Northern Arizona University classroom.

An English major at NAU contacted an educational watchdog this week after she was penalized for refusing to use a gender-neutral term in lieu of ‘mankind.’ A follow-up email by Dr. Anne Scott said that anyone who does not abide by the ‘letter or spirit’ of the class must be docked for their decision.

‘Included with [class rules] were several examples of what was and wasn’t OK to use,’ student Cailin Jefferstold Campus Reform Tuesday. ‘In one of these examples she stated that we could not use the word ‘mankind.’ Instead, we should use ‘humankind.’ I thought this was absurd, and I wasn’t sure if she was serious.’

Dr. Scott took one point out of 50 off Ms. Jeffers‘ paper and noted that the Modern Language Association is working to have gender-neutral guidelines adopted on a national level.”

What do these two cases have in common?


Democrat enabler of a pedophile

Leading Democrat provides a visa to a Muslim pedophile.

As the story goes, following Trump’s initial travel ban on 7 terrorist-producing nations (which actually was an extension of Obama’s ban on travel from the same 7 nations), one Islamic athlete from India procured the help of House minority leader Chuckie Schumer in getting a visa.  That is, as a result of his appeal to Mr. Schumer, this athlete did get his desired visa to the USA and was allowed into our country.  However, it turned out that there were four problems with the whole situation:

  1. He was traveling from India, a country that was not blocked by Trump’s travel ban.
     
  2. The athlete and his coach had been denied visas 10 days before Trump’s order was issued. In fact, both were in the USA when the order went into effect.
     
  3. After the hold on the visas was released, the athlete engaged “in a passionate kiss with a 12-year-old girl and there was touching in an ‘intimate area over the clothes’ ” (as stated by the police report).
     
  4. Although no records can be found by this blogger on why the athlete’s visa was delayed in India, it was noted by the officials in charge of the sporting event that:

    the visas for the pair “would not have been issued without the personal efforts” of Schumer and New York’s other Democratic senator, Kirsten Gillibrand,” confirmed the arrest, expressing “full faith in the American law.””

Therefore, it seems that the efforts of Democrats allowed a pedophile entry to the USA just because both the pedophile athlete and the Democrats were so eager to make political hay and thereby hurt President Trump.

Admittedly, there are cultural differences between Muslim-majority Kashmir and the USA.  The USA does not have bacha bazi (boy play) or the level of flesh trade of young girls.  Still, we can thank Chuckie for importing this.

Chuckie might then counter that a growing number (from 0.9% in 2010 to 1% in 2015) of Muslims have entered our nation and those people likely approve of behavior current Americans resist. More specifically, he might point out that the number of people accepting of child marriage (such as the marriage of a twelve-year-old girl to a 80-year-old man) has been steadily growing.

However, why wouldn’t the acceptance of child marriage be growing when one considers that the central character of their religion (their Prophet Muhammad) is reported in numerous Islamic texts to have married a 6-year-old girl?

A Canadian Imam professes “Muslims will kill all Jews”

Commentator Pamela Geller starts by quoting the Quran in her 12 March 2017 comment and video:

“Muhammad said it: “Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.” (Sahih Muslim 6985)

Muhammad said it. Why should anyone expect imams in Toronto or anywhere else not to preach it?”

Specifically, this imam says (as translated from Arabic by http://www.hadithcollection.com):

“Ibn ‘Umar reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: You will fight against the Jews and you will kill them until even a stone would say: Come here, Muslim, there is a Jew (hiding himself behind me); kill him.

Ubaidullah has reported this hadith with this chain of transmitters (and the Words are): “There is a Jew behind me.”

Abdullah b. ‘Umar reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: You and the Jews would fight against one another until a stone would say: Muslim, here is a Jew behind me; come and kill him.

Abdullah b. ‘Umar reported that Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: The Jews will fight against you and you will gain victory over them until the stone would say: Muslim, here is a Jew behind me; kill him.

Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews….”

For all the Democrats and neo-libs cannot answer the question posed at the top of this post, the answer is “the fundamental strain of Muslims who do not accept Western ideas on sexuality and coexistence.

Consider these points concerning Obama-era refugees to the US


Thanks, FrontPage, for this illustration

Looking at the essential issue concerning Islamists on our shores

According to a 6 March 2017 Fox News article, a disproportionately high part of the domestic terrorism

“Hundreds of people admitted to the United States as refugees are the subjects of FBI counterterrorism investigations involving ISIS – including some individuals from countries cited on President Trump’s revised travel ban.

Trump’s order, which was announced late Monday morning, temporarily bans travel to those without valid visas from Sudan, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia and Yemen.

Nearly a third of the 1,000 FBI domestic terrorism cases – 300 – involve those admitted to the U.S. as refugees, a Department of Homeland Security official said Monday. That number was confirmed later in the day by Attorney General Jeff Sessions during a news conference. Officials said some of those 300 came to ‘infiltrate’ the U.S., while others were radicalized once they were in the country.

‘Like every nation, the United States has a right to control who enters our country and to keep out those who would do us harm,’ Sessions said.

The officials who spoke Monday morning didn’t detail the current immigration status of those 300 people who were subjects of government terror probes, Reuters reported, citing a source.

One official also sought to clarify the apparent conflict with a leaked DHS report that appeared to show no connection between refugees and terrorism. The official said the draft document, which was reported by The Associated Press on Feb. 24, was not complete, had not been vetted through the interagency process and did not reflect classified information.

FBI Director James Comey said in late 2015 that some 900 terror investigations were going on, and probes were active in every state. But Monday’s development marked the first official concrete linkage between the refugee program and terrorism.”

With a US population of 325 million, the 295,000 refugees admitted to the US between 2013-2016 make up a fraction of a percent of our population.  On the other hand, if this small set also gives us 1/3 of our cases of domestic terrorism, then maybe we might consider protecting ourselves by keeping them off of our shores.

Three refugees are so confident of their conquest of Sweden that they stream video of a rape

As reported in a 24 January 2017 CNN article, three refugees (including two Afghans) live streamed the rape of a Swedish woman.  This implies that these guys all were confident enough that the people to whom they broadcast this reprehensible act would both approve and somewhat become accomplices by not reporting the crime. Thankfully, at least one female in the audience did not stand with these three reprobates.

“The alleged crime took place in an apartment in Uppsala, a city about 50 miles north of the capital, Stockholm.

In a statement, the Uppsala County police said they were alerted at 8:24am Sunday.

‘This rape was broadcast live on a Facebook group and numerous people have been in touch regarding seeing this broadcast,’ they said.

‘The police went to said apartment, and in the apartment were three men and a woman. The three men were detained on the spot and then arrested by prosecutors at 2:30pm on Sunday.’

They said they were treating the case as one of aggravated rape.

Magnus Berggren, deputy chief prosecutor in Uppsala, told CNN the men remained in custody Tuesday and the investigation was continuing.

He said the Facebook group in question was a closed group ‘where you could post rather special things. Even for that group this was not anything normal.’ “

The Muslim invasion of Europe as observed by Archbishop Liberati


Muslims protest at the Coliseum during November.

Archbishop says, “Italy will be Muslim”

Monsignor Carlo Liberati cites immorality, ignoring the poor, immigration policy, low European birthrate, and charity toward Muslims as reasons for the switch

A 14 January 2017 Breitbart article quoted Archbishop Carlo Liberati in his observation of the Muslim invasion of Europe.

“Everyone in Italy and the rest of Europe will ‘soon be Muslim’ because of the country’s ‘stupidity,’ a prominent Italian archbishop has said.

Monsignor Carlo Liberati, Archbishop Emeritus of Pompeii, said that Islam will soon become Europe’s main religion thanks to the huge number of Muslim migrants alongside the increasing secularism of native Europeans.

Speaking to Italian Catholic journal La Fede Quotidiana, the archbishop said: ‘In 10 years we will all be Muslims because of our stupidity. Italy and Europe live in a pagan and atheist way, they make laws that go against God and they have traditions that are proper of paganism.’

‘All of this moral and religious decadence favours Islam.’

‘We have a weak Christian faith,’ he added. ‘The Church nowadays does not work well and seminaries are empty.’

‘Parishes are the only thing still standing. We need a true Christian life. All this paves the way to Islam. In addition to this, they have children and we do not. We are in full decline.’

The archbishop added that the problem is not just Muslim immigration. The number of Eastern Europeans arriving over the past few years has also hit the quality of life for native Italians, he said.

‘We help without delay those coming from outside and we forget many poor and old Italians who are eating from the trash,’ the archbishop said. ‘We need policies that take care of Italians first: our young people and the unemployed.’

‘I am a protester. If I were not a priest, I’d be out there demonstrating in the squares. What is the point of so many migrants that instead of thanking for the food we give them, they just throw it, spend hours with their cell phones and even organise riots?’

He even criticised the Catholic Church for giving money to migrants.”

Additionally, I would point at the heavy, taxing hand of government for keeping those of us in the middle class from having larger families and from having more time to spread our faith through dialogue. If you are always struggling to scratch together a living, you probably will not have time to talk to others about the hope you have.  Likewise, you probably will not have quite as large a family.

It’s happening in Britain also

As shown by the articles and videos in the following tweets, Britain has been experiencing significant problems due to the influx of Muslim immigrants.

Muslims in Italy stage protests after mosques are shut down due to code violations

A 22 October 2016 Daily Mail article points out how Muslims have flooded Italy, rejected the fact that their mosques did not meet building codes, and started demanding concessions from their benefactors.

“Thousands of Muslims gathered outside Rome’s Colosseum to protest the closure of mosques and other places of worship in the Italian capital.

The group gathered outside the iconic ancient Roman building to pray as they promoted their right of freedom to worship during the peaceful march yesterday.

An imam led the group in chants of ‘Allah Akbar’ which means ‘God is great,’ as they kneeled to the ground facing the Colosseum.

The protest was organized by a Bangladeshi group, Dhuumcatu, which has complained that smaller or more informal mosques in Rome have been branded illegal by authorities for building violations.

At least 1.6 million Muslims live in the country but there are only a handful of mosques officially registered with the Italian government.

Most worship takes place in houses and Islamic cultural centres.

But, Italy’s Interior Minister Angelino Alfano said in August that ‘mini mosques in garages’ should not be allowed as it makes them difficult to monitor, possibly raising the risk of radicalisation.”

Although showing love is an requirement of Christians, so is the need to protect the powerless (such as the orphans and widows already in Italy). Just looking at the pictures provided by the Daily Mail, it almost looks like the numbers of immigrants allowed into Italy has outpaced the ability of the government to police these migrants.
