JERUSALEM – THE HOLY OF HOLIES – CHRISTIANS TREATED LIKE KINGS

Jerusalem, the “City of David” since time immemorial has been fought over, contested, destroyed, rebuilt, but still lives on, located on a plateau in the Judean Mountains between the Mediterranean and the Dead Sea, is one of the oldest cities in the world.Today, Jerusalem survives because the Israeli’s see to it that all religions flourish. In fact there is no place in the Middle East where Christians feel more safe than in Israel. According to the Biblical tradition, King David conquered the city from the Jebusites and established it as the capital of the United Kingdom of Israel, and his son, King Solomon, commissioned the building of the First Temple.

In 2011, Jerusalem had a population of 801,000, of which Jews comprised 497,000 (62%), Muslims 281,000 (35%), Christians 14,000 (around 2%) and 9,000 (1%) were not classified by religion.  According to the Prussian consul, the population in 1845 was 16,410, with 7,120 Jews, 5,000 Muslims, 3,390 Christians, 800 Turkish soldiers and 100 Europeans. In 1867 an American Missionary reports an estimated population of Jerusalem of ‘above’ 15,000, with 4,000 to 5,000 Jews and 6,000 Muslims. From 1922 to 1948 the total population of the city rose from 52,000 to 165,000, comprised two-thirds of Jews and one-third of Arabs (Muslims and Christians).

According to recent figures released by Israeli Central Bureau of Statistics, there are roughly 161,000 Christians living in Israel, equaling about 2 percent of the population and an up from 158,000 in 2012. Equate this number out of a total population eight million and 200,000 Christians living in Turkey with a population of 80,000,000. 
 
 Most Palestinian Christians nowadays see themselves as culturally and linguistically Arab Christians with ancestors dating back to the first followers of Christ. They claim descent from a mixture of Jews and Gentiles who converted to Christianity in the first few centuries AD.

HOW MANY TIMES CAN WE WRITE ABOUT THIS – MID-EAST CHRISTIANS ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK

Christians are facing the Muslim sword throughout the Middle East. The latest being the killing of Pakistani Christians. The 97-percent Muslim nation that straddles the Middle East and Asia is one of the most dangerous places in the world for Christians, according to an annual report published last month by the State Department following calls by the U.S. Center for International Religious Freedom to include the country in its list of “Countries of Particular Concern.”

What gets our goat is the hipocrisy of Jordan’s King Abudllah and the Jew hater Palestinian Abbas continue to profess their desire to protect their Christians and the Christian holy sites of Jerusalem. What a joke. They should look around and see how many Christians are living there. The only place in the Middle East where Christians are safe is in Israel.

The world doesn’t care what happens to Christians when the likes Merkl and Obama support the settling of  Muslim invaders into their countries. And the U.N., a far leftist organization, run by Muslims surreptitiously laugh behind close doors as the Muslims flow across European borders.

Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the Emirates, Qatar look the other way when they say, “no immigrants welcome here.”

POPE’S CRUSADE – TURN THE MIDDLE EAST INTO A CALIPHATE RULED BY ISLAMISTS

The Pope’s message of peace falls on deaf ears (Muslim ears) when the world around him goes up in flames, Middle East Christians are slaughtered like sheep, the Pope prays. Islamists have infiltrated the United States from Syria, ISIS, Iraq and Iran; Italy which hosts Vatican City is one step away of being 50% Muslim. But this does not seem to worry the Most High.

Don’t count on him to lead the 1st Crusade of the 21st century to recapture the Holy Land.  Pope Francis is leading his flock to the chopping block to be slaughtered like animals.

The U.S. denies refugee status to (click)Chaldeans, this is not only insane, it is unjust and a blemish on the Muslim President.

LLOYD MARCUS WEIGHS IN ON CHRISTIANITY

Lloyd Marcus, a Tea Party favorite does not hold back any punches when it comes to being politically correct. Marcus tells it like it is, something the canned talk politicians fail to grasp.

Jail Time for Christians: No Longer a Hypothesis

So this is how the game is played.  Leftist operatives in the courts (supreme and state) create unconstitutional laws to further their anti-God agenda.  Then leftists say those who disobey their lawless laws are not behaving like Christians and good Americans.  Many on our side fall for it.

The SCOTUS’ ruling on Obamacare and homosexual marriage means the Constitution will now say whatever leftists want it to say.  Folks, do you realize that based on this new precedent, the left can make anything they want a law?  Incest, pedophilia, bestiality, and so on?

Before you call me crazy, leftists are already clamoring for the normalization of these sins.  Have you heard of NAMBLA (North American Man Boy Love Association)?

Suppose our kangaroo Supreme Court decreed that ending slavery was unconstitutional.  All blacks must report to government for their slavery assignments.  How many idiots on our side would comply because Christians and good Americans must obey the law?

Meanwhile, it goes without saying that Obama is the most lawless president in U.S. history, refusing to obey laws he dislikes.  Sanctuary cities run by Democrats defiantly disobey federal immigration law at the cost of endangering and even killing American citizens.  It is insane to allow these conniving vipers to claim the moral high ground over us, lecturing us about obeying the law.

THE GENERAL HAS A RADICAL MESSAGE FOR ISLAMISTS

General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, the President of Egypt is no Johnny come lately. He has spoken out against extremists for some time. Even engaging the United States to take action where ever needed.  His recent speech at the 1000 year old religious institution Al-Azhar confirms his belief that radical religious leaders have incited, inflamed, encouraged and most likely funded the Islamist to render havoc on the Christian world.  Islam he says in brief is living in the 5th century.

Excerpts from a Dec. 28 speech by Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi at Al-Azhar University in Cairo, translated by the Washington-based Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI):

I am addressing the religious scholars and clerics. We must take a long, hard look at the current situation. I have talked about this several times in the past. We must take a long, hard look at the situation we are in. It is inconceivable that the ideology we sanctify should make our entire nation a source of concern, danger, killing, and destruction all over the world. It is inconceivable that this ideology. . . .

I am referring not to ‘religion,’ but to ‘ideology’—the body of ideas and texts that we have sanctified in the course of centuries, to the point that challenging them has become very difficult. . . .

It has reached the point that [this ideology] is hostile to the entire world. Is it conceivable that 1.6 billion [Muslims] would kill the world’s population of seven billion, so that they could live [on their own]? This is inconceivable. I say these things here, at Al-Azhar, before religious clerics and scholars. May Allah bear witness on Judgment Day to the truth of your intentions, regarding what I say to you today. You cannot see things clearly when you are locked [in this ideology]. You must emerge from it and look from outside, in order to get closer to a truly enlightened ideology. You must oppose it with resolve. Let me say it again: We need to revolutionize our religion. . . .

Honorable Imam [the Grand Sheik of Al-Azhar], you bear responsibility before Allah. The world in its entirety awaits your words, because the Islamic nation is being torn apart, destroyed, and is heading to perdition. We ourselves are bringing it to perdition.

ABBAS A PSEUDO PALESTINIAN SUICIDE BOMBER

Just as he does every December, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, along with other PA officials, made the Christmastime claim that Jesus Christ was a Palestinian, rather than a Judean. What an insult to Christianity and Christian history to have this Jew Hater spew out this filth which denigrates Christianity and the Son of God. Abbas, a suicide bomber, has resorted to what can be called hallucinations of the mind.  So now we have it, according to Mazen, Jesus is a Palestinian Muslim.

The facts from the new testament, text defines Jesus as  a Jewish resident of Judea. The Roman Empire changed the name of “Judea” to “Palestine” one hundred years after Jesus’s death.

Palestinian Christians have suffered as dhimmis for centuries. An English traveler in the Holy Land in 1816, for example, remarked that Christians were not permitted to ride on horseback without express permission from the Muslim Pasha.5

Other European travelers to the Holy Land mentioned the practice whereby “a dhimmi must not come face to face with a Muslim in the street but pass him to the left, the impure side,” and described how Christians were humiliated and insulted in the streets of Jerusalem until the mid-1800s. The British consul in Jerusalem wrote that in the Holy Land, particularly in Jerusalem until 1839, Christians were pushed into the gutter by any Muslim who would swear: “turn to my left, thou dog.” They were forbidden to ride on a mount in town or to wear bright clothes.

From 1953 until 1967, Jordan undertook to Islamize the Christian quarter in the Old City of Jerusalem by laws forbidding Christians to buy land and houses….It ordered the compulsory closure of schools on Muslim holidays and authorized mosques to be built near churches, thus preventing any possibility of enlargement.

In Israel, too, Muslim fundamentalists seek to assert dominance over Christian Arabs. “Attacks against and condemnation of Christians are also often heard in mosques, in sermons and in publications of the Muslim Movement.”16 In Nazareth, a significant clash developed in recent years when Muslims sought to build a grand mosque next to the Basilica of the Annunciation, the dominant Christian landmark in the town

The PA, in fact, denies historic Jewish – and thus Christian – ties to Jerusalem. Walid M. Awad, Director of Foreign Publications in the Palestinian Ministry of Information, asserted: “The location of the [Jewish] Temple on the Temple Mount is in question….There are scholars who say that it might be in Jericho or somewhere else 4 kilometers outside of Jerusalem.” Asked “The New Testament talks of Jesus going to the Temple in Jerusalem. Are you suggesting that Jesus went to Jericho rather than Jerusalem?” he responded, “It depends on what temple you think he went to.”44 U.S. Ambassador Dennis Ross asserted: “The only new idea [Arafat] raised at Camp David was that the temple didn’t exist in Jerusalem.”

Continuing the Islamic tradition of Saladin – who constructed two mosques contiguous to and taller than the Church of the Holy Sepulcher – mosques have mushroomed adjacent to and usually taller than churches. Loudly amplified Muslim sermons have been aired during Christian services, including the Pope’s April 2000 address in Nazareth, which had to be halted until the Muslim call to prayer was concluded.

Christians should start demanding blood for blood when it comes to Muslim incitement. Prayers only go so far.

CHRISTIANS BURNED AT THE STAKE – A NUN SPEAKS OUT

FROM WND http://www.wnd.com/

WHISTLEBLOWER / WND WEEKLY

Nun Pleads for Christians Raped, Sold, Killed by ISIS

Leo Hohmann, WND, December 23, 2014

It is the season of “peace on Earth,” but Sister Hatune Dogan has a chill in her spirit that could be felt only in a time of war.

The Orthodox Christian nun feels it with each new atrocity committed against the Yazidi and Christian minorities of Syria and Iraq. She feels it in the church burnings across Egypt and the slaughter of innocent children in Pakistan.

For this reason she brought a word of warning to Americans in a visit last week to Minnesota, where she spoke to several church groups.

Today’s political climate draws her back to 1915 and her native Turkey, when her family experienced the cruelty of the Ottoman caliphate, which slaughtered 3 million Christians and reduced others to second-class status under subjugation, or “dhimmitude.”

ISIS is nothing new, she said, just the re-emergence of Islam’s dark side.

“ISIS is not fanatic. ISIS is not more terrible. ISIS is real Muslim believers who like to follow the Quran and Muhammad,” said the founder of Warburg, Germany-based Sister Hatune Foundation, a worldwide relief organization that has been honored by the German government for its dedication to human rights. “Others say they are Muslim. They say they believe Quran, but they don’t follow it.”

Armenian Christians accounted for about half of the 3 million victims in Turkey, but the other half were Christians of various ethnic backgrounds–Greek Orthodox, Syrian Orthodox and Protestants. All felt the boot of jihad against their heads.

She believes Christians in the West should learn what is written in the Muslim holy book. If they did, they would realize that the Islamic State, also called ISIS, is not doing anything that hasn’t been done in the past by devout Muslims who have conquered a people they see as “infidels.”

Sister Hatune in India

Where are all the Christians?

Sister Hatune points to the fact that 96 percent of the people who populated the Middle East at the turn of the eighth century were Christian. Now, that Christian population has dwindled to 6 percent. Turkey was once almost all Christian, but now it is 0.03 percent Christian. Iraq had 1 million Christians under Saddam Hussein, but now only a few thousand remain, and the churches of Baghdad will be mostly empty this Christmas.

“Where are these Christians? Where are these people? Just ask yourself,” said the fiery nun, whose native tongue is Aramaic.

{snip}

The Sister Hatune Foundation works in 35 countries with Matthew 25:34-40 as its mission statement–feeding, clothing, sheltering and providing medical care to the poor and persecuted of the world. She has been making regular trips to the Middle East since 2005, and ISIS presents a new challenge: trying to rescue orphaned children from its clutches.

Sister Hatune returned to her home convent in Germany for only a few days before she will make another trip to the Middle East to celebrate Christmas with persecuted Christians. She was with them in November when she visited refugee camps in Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey. She also sneaked into Syria to meet with Christians there.

{snip}

Drawing on her own family background, Sister Hatune has recently finished work on her 13th book, “I Believe in Action,” written to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Christian genocide in Turkey. In this book she compares the life of Jesus to that of Muhammad, Islam’s main prophet.

“I not write from my head. All facts,” she said. “Muhammad came and he brought killing, beheading, pedophilia. He slept with a 9-year-old girl, he married when she was 6 years old. We know because she says it herself in the Hadith. In Yemen today, where Shariah is the law, they have to marry the girl before her first menstruation, maximum of age 13, because it is written.”

Sister Hatune thumbs through her Quran and finds another verse that she says leads Muslims to murder Christians in the Middle East.

“Twenty-five times in Quran it says to kill Christians because we are involved in polytheism,” she said, explaining that Muslims do not understand the concept of the Holy Trinity. “Also it says to not make friends with Christians.”

Europe is on its way to becoming the next battleground for Islam, especially Belgium and France, where Muslims make up 6 to 10 percent of the population. Sister Hatune’s adopted country of Germany is at least 4 percent Muslim and has more than 4,000 mosques.

A mosque is not just for prayer,” the nun said. “It is to prepare to kill the unbeliever and control the world.”

In the Quran there are 97 verses against the unbeliever.

“And there are verses against the Christians who say God is Father, Son and Holy Spirit, or that Jesus is the Son of God. They have to be beheaded, the head cut off from the neck; no other interpretation. This is what the Muslims are doing. Normal Muslims, who are really Muslims, have to follow this rule,” she said. “There will never be peace on Earth if these verses of the Quran are not stopped. It is in the Quran, Hadith and sunna 36,800 times, the words ‘cut,’ ‘kill’ or ‘attack.’ How can there be peace on Earth?”

The Quran also gives Muslim men permission to rape girls and women who are held captive as slaves (Sura 23:5-6).

In conquered cities, ISIS has marked the homes of Christians with a red symbol of the Nazarene. They are then visited by ISIS militants who bring unspeakable horrors upon the families.

Sister Hatune says it is justified under Sura 5:33 in the Quran, which states:

Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth [to cause] corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land.

Muslim apologists in the West say the verse is taken out of context by “Islamophobes,” but Sister Hatune believes otherwise.

“Those of us Christians from Middle East. We know them. We know their rules,” she said.

Today there are 57 Islamic countries living under Islamic law.

CHRISTIANS HAVE A CHOICE: CONVERT, DIE OR PAY – WAKE UP CALL

Christians living in the city of Mozul were given an ultimatum, pay up or die, you have no choice. this resulted in 100,000 fleeing Iraq. The dhimma is a contract which is demands the subject to pay a jizya or money for protection – don’t pay and you find yourself  at the sharp end of Mohammad’s sword. Jews were subjected to this demand centuries ago and now the practice has come full circle being commanded by in the ISIS controlled caliphate.

This is another warning to Christians the world over; the ultimate objective of these holy warriors is the eventual world takeover. France, England, Germany have large communities of Muslim immigrants, some cities are becoming infested by them. In Sweden they have fought police and local governments. Geert Wilders of Holland will tell you all about the Muslims of the Netherlands.

Brigitte Gabriel confronts a Muslim. Saba Ahmed, an American University law student, stood in the back of the room and asked a question in a soft voice. “We portray Islam and all Muslims as bad, but there’s 1.8 billion followers of Islam,” she told them. “We have 8 million-plus Muslim Americans in this country and I don’t see them represented here.”

Panelist Brigitte Gabriel of a group called ACT! for America pounced. She said “180 million to 300 million” Muslims are “dedicated to the destruction of Western civilization.” She told Ahmed that the “peaceful majority were irrelevant” in the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, and she drew a Hitler comparison: “Most Germans were peaceful, yet the Nazis drove the agenda and as a result, 60 million died.”
