  • ‘Tomatoes are Christian,’ Egyptian Salafi group warns

    A Salafi group called the “Popular Egyptian Islamic Association” has warned Muslims against eating tomatoes on the grounds that the fruit is a “Christian food,” NowLebanon.com has reported.

     

    The group based its claim on the fact that a shape resembling a cross is revealed when one cuts a tomato in half.

     

    The association published the warning on its Facebook page with a photo of a tomato cut in half, revealing a cross-shaped interior.

     

    A message posted on the page read, “Eating tomatoes is forbidden because they are Christian. [The tomato] praises the cross instead of Allah and says that Allah is three [in reference to the Holy Trinity].”

     

    The message went on to say, “I implore you to spread this photo because there is a sister from Palestine who saw the Prophet of Allah in a vision and he was crying, warning his nation against eating [tomatoes]. If you don’t spread this [message], know that it is the devil who stopped you.”

     

    The message caused outrage among Facebook users, which prompted the group to clarify their warning, saying they did not tell people not to eat tomatoes. “We said don’t cut it in [such a way that it reveals] the cross shape.

  • Muslim Woman Offers Terrifying Warning to Americans

    A letter allegedly written by a Muslim woman warning the United States and other Western countries about the dangers of Islamic immigration is making the rounds online once more.  

    Originally published in 2014, the letter claims to be written by an Egyptian woman who writes under the name Magda Borham.  

    She writes, in part:  

     

                  Muslims are in your country, but they live not to integrate or to be part of your society or at least to be equal with others, but to                             dominate and to be the only privileged group. Muslims achieve this by turning you into a second-class citizen in your own country.

     

    They immigrate to your countries holding the same belief system that turned their lives into hell on Earth. This same belief, same religion made their lives unsupportable in their original societies. It is the same religion that transformed their countries into war zones of endless conflicts. Muslims now homeless want to apply this system and live and apply the same destruction in your own country.

     

    Muslims are not in your country to help build it or to make it prosper. Many believe this, including politicians. Muslims are in your country to drain its resources and to suck the blood out of society.

     

    In light of the recent Orlando tragedy where a radicalized Muslim man shot 49 dead and injured dozens more, her words strike the hearts of many wondering how to move forward.  

    Since her words were written, presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump has called for a Muslim ban while Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton maintains Islam is not the enemy.  

    But Borham writes that many Muslims are "superficially knowledgeable" about their own religion, especially the rituals. Borham says they are programmed to recite rather than investigate.  

    In media, "radical Islam" is used instead of "Muslim," which Borham identifies as worrisome.   

     

    You are not required to kill to be called violent or "extremist"or "radical"or "terrorist." You can be violent, extremist, radical or terrorist even if you don't kill with your own hands. That's what the West is unable to understand. ... In Islam, there is many forms of "Jihad" other than killing in the battlefield. ... The vast majority of Muslims are sympathizers with terrorists. They believe in the same ideology and share their goals even if they do not hold arms themselves. That's why this vast majority is silent and don't show any opposition to their fellows who kill in the name of their religion. 

     

    To prove her point, she highlights the rising war in the Middle East, which is quickly falling to extremist groups.  

    For Borham, though, there is nothing "extreme" about these leaders. Rather, they are following their religion. She worries political correctness will promote a violent take over.  

     

    Muslims use your own democratic laws and values against you and they do it successfully while you keep sleeping as if as in a deep coma. This is why the leftists are the people who are worthy of  the title "useful idiots." They are in a perpetual state of shame and self-loathing and will be the first victims of Islam once it takes over. ... Muslims use them as a stick to beat you with, but even they will never ever be accepted as friends to the Muslims after, and they will definitely be their first victims. Leftists, Liberals, progressives, Antifa, Code Pink etc. are all appeasers of Islam. Appeasing evil is cowardice. They are fooled people who feed crocodiles hoping they will eat them last. They are the enemy within your countries.

     

    Your country is like your house; you expect visitors who come to your house to respect you and respect your rules, not the opposite. Visitors must appreciate your kindness and your generosity for receiving them into your home and not imposing their own rules on you. This is your house, you own it, so you have the obligation to protect it and defend it.

     

    If the visitor doesn't like your rules, all he has to do is to leave. Nobody obliged him to visit you, and nobody will prevent him from leaving. As he came to your house by his own choice, he can leave your house freely or by force, if required.

     

    For more than 1,400 years, Islam has been protected from criticism. Nobody has dared to question this belief system lest to be condemned to death. Islam is surrounded by very high walls, and Muslims are not allowed to see beyond that wall. The idea of questioning Islam is unthinkable to Muslims, so they are unable to accept the fact there is some people start to break this wall and allow rays of lights to pass through. They are unable to bare the fact that Islam is beginning to be exposed like a nude person and people are snow seeing its true form As a reaction Muslims fight to shut  mouths and to close everyone's eyes. 

     

    Borham begs the West to listen to the cries of persecution under the hands of an Islamic regime. She says it is worse than Nazism or fascism of dictators past.  

     

    No doubt, no doubt; the Islamic immigration is the deadliest mistake ever the west has ever made.

     

    Nobody else in the world knows Islam and the mentality of Muslims more than those who have suffered by having Islam as a part of their life.

     

    If you listen to the cries of the Copts of Egypt, the Christians of Syria, Iraq, Sudan, Pakistan and all the other Muslim countries you will hear the descriptions of the horrors of Islam.

     

    See and feel the tears of the minorities in every Islamic society. These tears will tell you the true stories of Islam. Hear the blood of the ex-Muslims pounding. It's their blood that is shouting out every single second asking the rest of the world to "Wake up!"

  • Justin Bieber's mom prays to Holy Spirit to enlighten her son as video appears to show him fighting during NBA Finals

    Pattie Mallette, mom of singer Justin Bieber and a bestselling author, is asking the Holy Spirit to reach out and enlighten her son.  The look to God for help is timely as a video appeared to show him fighting on the night of the NBA Finals in Cleveland, Ohio.

    "Holy Spirit come and teach us each who you are. Amen," Mallette posted on Twitter alongside a graphic of her son. The post has been retweeted more than 9,000 times and liked by over 13,000 users.

                                      Holy Spirit come and teach us each who you are. Amen.

     The video, obtained by TMZ, was supposedly taken at the lobby of the hotel where Bieber was staying in Cleveland. It appeared to show Bieber and a man fighting. No charges were pressed.

    Last March 1, Bieber celebrated his 22nd birthday and Mallette posted a prayer on Twitter.

    "22 years ago I was 18yrs old, pregnant & scared. But God. Lord encounter @justinbieber for his bday! Give him all I couldn't, in Jesus name," she wrote.

    For the past two years, Bieber has been in the limelight over his behaviour.

    In 2014, he was accused of assaulting a limousine driver, egging his neighbour's house and ended up paying $80,000 in fines, and getting caught for DUI in Miami.

    Bieber told Billboard last year that it was his mother who introduced him to music and religion.

    "When I was 7, she wouldn't let me listen to anything but [Pastor] Judah [Smith]'s tapes falling asleep," he said.

    Bieber said in the last two years, his relationship with his mom was "pretty nonexisting."

    "I was distant because I was ashamed. I never wanted my mom to be disappointed in me and I knew she was. We spent some time not talking, so it takes time to rebuild that trust. She's living in Hawaii now, so it's hard, but getting better. She's an amazing woman and I love her," he said.

    When he was 19, Bieber reconnected with Pastor Smith, of City Church in Seattle, Washington.

    "I'd come and listen to him and try to hear him out. I had all these questions and things were not adding up. 'Well, why is this, then? How did all those animals fit on Noah's Ark, then?'" he said, adding that he now understands faith.

    "That's what it's all about—not questioning it," the Canadian star said.

    Smith previously said, "We text almost daily, and it's not just me sending him Bible verses anymore. He'll send them to me, along with encouraging thoughts or an encouraging emoticon. I'm committed to helping him and protecting him, but it's fair to say we're there for each other."

  • Muslim Leader Plans on Turning 5,000 Christian Churches Into Mosques in France

    France’s top Muslim official has suggested turning empty or abandoned churches into mosques, saying as many as 5,000 are needed for the country’s Muslim population – the largest in Europe.

     “It’s a delicate issue, but why not?” Dalil Boubakeur, rector of the Grand Mosque in Paris and the president of the French Council of Muslim Faith, told Europe 1 radio on Monday.

     There are currently about 2,500 mosques in France with another 300 under construction, but the number falls short of what is needed, he said. With roughly 5 million Muslims in France, at least 5,000 mosques are needed, Boubakeur said.

    During the interview with French radio he gave an example of the transition of a church into a mosque in Clermont-Ferrand, which was welcomed by the local religious community. The church had been abandoned for more than 30 years and the building was given to the Muslim community in 2012.

    “It’s the same God, these are neighboring rites, fraternal, and I think that Muslims and Christians can coexist and live together,” he said.

    It’s not the first time the lack of places of worship for millions of Muslims has been brought up in France. In April, Boubakeur called for doubling the number of mosques.

    His remarks were welcomed by the Christian community as a “legitimate” demand.

    “Muslims should, like Christians and Jews, be able to practice their religion,” Monseigneur Ribadeau-Dumas, spokesperson for the Bishops’ Conference of France, told French radio station Europe 1.

    However, this suggestion has been criticized by the far-right National Front party. In April, Florian Philippot, its vice-president, argued France doesn’t need more, because “100 percent of places of radicalization are mosques.”

    The party’s leader Marine Le Pen called to stop the construction of new mosques in March.

    We must today freeze the construction of new mosques while we verify the origin of their financing,” she said in an interview to France 24.

    The question of building closer ties with the Muslim community was discussed at the talks between the French government and about 150 Muslim leaders in Paris on Monday.

    French Prime Minister Manuel Valls stressed there was no link between extremism and Islam.

    “We must say all of this is not Islam,” he said. “The hate speech, anti-Semitism that hides behind anti-Zionism and hate for Israel… the self-proclaimed imams in our neighborhoods and our prisons who are promoting violence and terrorism…

    “Islam still provokes misunderstandings, prejudices, and is rejected by some citizens,” he added. “Yet Islam is here to stay in France. It’s the second largest religious group in our country.”

    The first conference between the government and Muslim community leaders comes five months after the Charlie Hebdo and kosher store jihadist attacks in Paris that killed 17 people.

    The terrorists responsible for the attacks “belong to a different world than we do,” said Boubakeur, speaking at the conference.

    There has been a huge increase in anti-Muslim incidents in France following the Islamist attacks in Paris. A report issued in January by the National Observatory Against Islamophobia said that over the month there has been an 110-percent increase in attacks.

  • NEWS | US Accepting Disproportionate Number of Christian Refugees Despite Ongoing Genocide

    The United States government is processing an unbelievably low number of Christian refugees despite the ongoing genocide at the hands of the Islamic State terror group in Iraq and Syria, the American Center for Law and Justice reports.

    The conservative law group cited numbers from the Refugee Processing Center, noting that while the U.S. has processed 11,086 Muslims from Iraq since the beginning of 2015, only 433 Christians have been added to that number. And in Syria, there have been 5,435 Muslims welcomed and only 28 Christians.

    "In an attempt to justify this astounding discrepancy, the Obama administration and congressional Democratic leadership continue to maintain that the U.S. should not consider a refugee's religion in deciding whether to grant refugee status," the ACLJ said on Tuesday.

    They argued, however, that religion should definitely be a consideration when granting refugee status, given that IS targets Christians and other religious minorities in the region.

    The law group said Secretary of State John Kerry admitted in March that IS kills Christians because of their religion.

    "So, we know that ISIS targets Christians in Iraq and Syria because they are Christians. Christians are being slaughtered, tortured, raped and displaced because they are Christian. We also know that under U.S. and international refugee law, religion is a criterion for granting refugee status," the ACLJ added, warning that unless serious action is taken to protect minorities, they will be wiped out at the hands of IS.

    Reports from last year, such as the Worldwide Refugee Admissions Processing Systems, have also suggested that the U.S. is taking in very few Christians as part of its refugee program.

    The November 2015 report stated that Christian refugees made up only 1.6 percent of total arrivals in 2015, while Muslims made up 97.8 percent of the total.

    For comparison, close to 10 percent of the Syrian population is Christian, and at the time more than 700,000 Syrian Christians had been displaced and driven out of their homes because of IS.

    The ACLJ has spoken out against IS' genocide of minorities on a number of occasions, but back in May said that recognizing the genocide, both on the part of the U.S. and the U.N., is an important step toward addressing the crisis.

    The organizaton is calling on the international community to take "swift and decisive action," saying that June's United Nations Human Rights Council session will have to decide on measures to put an end to the ongoing genocide.

    "As the time for the HRC's meeting is rapidly approaching, it is important that the United States and Secretary Kerry act quickly and decisively in advancing at the United Nations the cause of those Christians targeted by ISIS. We are optimistic that they will do so," the law group wrote.

  • A Sweeter Future: Shashemene’s Beekeeping Business in Ethiopia

  • Egypt: Teenage Girls Kidnapped and Forced to Marry Muslims

    christian girls in Egypt are being kidnapped, forced to convert to Islam, and forced to marry Muslim men.

    According to ChristianToday.com, Amal Shaky is one such young woman. Shaky, who is 19, was presumably kidnapped on her way to university in Cairo. Her family reported her disappearance to police, but the police were slow to respond to the kidnapping.

    Authorities even suggested that Shaky’s father killed his daughter himself and hid her body. The officers then said they would look into the case, but thus far, no action has been taken.

    "More than 40 days have passed since my daughter was kidnapped, and they say that the matter is under investigation," Shaky’s father told International Christian Concern. "I don't know how long I should wait. Wait until they tell me that my daughter is killed or got married?"

    Human rights abuses, particularly against Christians, are increasing in Egypt. Human Rights Watch recently reported that Egyptian security forces arrested and tortured 20 people, including eight children.

    Another Christian persecution watchdog group, World Watch Monitor, also reported on Christian persecution in Egypt.In the past few years, reports World Watch Monitor, the Upper Egyptian province of Qena saw 72 cases of kidnappings, extortion, and other forms of violence against Coptic Christians.

  • Are you struggling to live generously? Here are eight Bible verses to consider

    How do we know if we're living a truly generous life? A lot of the time when people think about being generous their minds immediately turn to the financial aspect of giving. While monetary gifts are important and necessary in many cases, the Bible teaches us that generosity extends far beyond this. In addition to giving financially, we're also instructed to give freely all manner of worthy things – our time, our prayers, our forgiveness, our love – and not just to those who we think deserve them (Matthew 5:42-48).

    Biblical lessons on generosity reveal to us that it has many strands. As Christians, knowing this is a great source of encouragement as it means that there are countless occasions where we can let generosity define our actions.

    So don't be disheartened if you're unable to give considerable amounts of cash to those in need, think about what other ways you can respond to the call to give. In many cases these displays of kindness are more valuable than cash gifts can ever be.

    Have you heard God calling you to give more recently and found yourself unsure of what action to take? Let these Bible verses help you to find clarity, and don't forget that you can always return to Him for more guidance.

    Luke 21:1-4 - Jesus looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the offering box, and he saw a poor widow put in two small copper coins. And he said, "Truly, I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all of them. For they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on."

    Proverbs 19:17 - Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his deed.

    1 Timothy 6:18-19 - They are to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share, thus storing up treasure for themselves as a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is truly life.

    Luke 12:33 - Sell your possessions, and give to the needy. Provide yourselves with moneybags that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys.

    Proverbs 22:9 - Whoever has a bountiful eye will be blessed, for he shares his bread with the poor.

    Matthew 25:34-36 - Then the King will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.'

    Isaiah 58:10 - if you pour yourself out for the hungry and satisfy the desire of the afflicted, then shall your light rise in the darkness and your gloom be as the noonday.

    2 Corinthians 9:11 - You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.

  • Keanu Reeves Shook The World With Another POWERFUL Message

    Keanu Reeves, is best known for his acting career at the early age. He is also popular and well known from his words of wisdom every few months and this one go right straight from his heart. Enjoy his wonderful message and be inspired.

    “I cannot be part of a world where men dress their wives as prostitutes by showing everything that should be cherished. Where there is no concept of honor and dignity, and one can only rely on those when they say “I promise” .
    Where women do not want children, and men don’t want a family.

    Where the suckers believe themselves to be successful behind the wheel of their fathers` cars, and a father who has a little bit of power is trying to prove to you that you’re a nobody.

    Where people falsely declare that they believe in God with a shot of alcohol in their hand, and the lack of any understanding of their religion.

    Where the concept of jealousy is considered shameful, and modesty is a disadvantage.

    Where people forgot about love, but simply looking for the best partner.

    Where people repair every rustle of their car, not sparing any money nor time, and themselves , they look so poor that only an expensive car can hide it.

    Where the boys waste their parents money in nightclubs, aping under the primitive sounds, and girls fall in love with them for this.

    Where men and women are no longer ago identifiable and where all this together is called freedom of choice, but for those who choose a different path-get branded as retarded despots.

    I choose my path, but it’s a pity that I did not find similar understanding in the people among whom I wished to find it most of all … “

    ~ Keanu Reeves
