Christmas 2013: Muslims slaughtering Christians throughout the Middle East, Africa, South Asia

Christmas Islam

(click photo for large)

Interfaith Outreach – Islamic style…

It is genocide by any definition, and it gets worse every Christmas as devout Muslims seek to obey the instructions of the Koran as they and millions of their coreligionists understand their duties.

Thirty-four Christians murdered for being Christians in Iraq, 1,000 believers slaughtered in the Central African Republic… It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Every Christmas.

And, aside from violence, what is the response of the Muslim leadership throughout the world to Christians at Christmas time?

Muslim leadership talks about Christmas in their own words…

Denmark: Islamic demonstration on Christmas Eve — “Allahu akbar!”

Turkey: Anti-Santa campaigns heat up as Christmas arrives.

Indonesia: Muslims prohibit Christmas & New Year celebrations

Christmas greetings by Muslims prohibited

USA: Lebanese-born Cleric: saying “Merry Christmas” is worse than fornication, alcohol or killing someone

USA: Washington Mufti – taking pictures with Santa an abomination

India, Pakistan: Islamic clerics denounce Christmas celebrations

Now, a list of all Muslim groups and individuals publicly wishing others a “Merry Christmas”, or expressing regrets about Muslim violence against Christians…

(I couldn’t find any. If you locate any, please leave a comment with the link.)

So let’s look at Christmas 2013 and the few weeks leading up to the celebration of the birth of Jesus…

December 25, 2013: Christmas bomb attacks kill 34 in Baghdad’s Christian areas

December 24, 2013: Nigeria says 70 killed in battle with Islamist group

December 23, 2013: Christmas a day of terror for Christians in Iraq

Violent Muslims attack Christmas celebrations around the world

Where is the outcry from the “moderate” and “tolerant” Muslims about the annual Christmas slaughter?

Christmas is a special time for violent Muslims. It’s the same every year as Muslims murder dozens and sometimes hundreds of Christians at Christmas. Christians around the world have to be extra vigilant at Christmas time. Remember the underwear bomber taken down by the passengers over Chicago two years ago? That was a Christmas Day flight, and the day was chosen by violent Muslims for a reason.

Here’s how violent Muslims celebrated Christmas in 2011…

Nigeria: Church bombs massacre. Violent Muslims exploded bombs at five churches on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Over 100 people were killed in Nigeria in the bombings and other Christmas attacks.

Uganda: Christmas Eve service Muslim acid attack blinds pastor. Christian Pastor (and former Muslim) Umar Mulinde of Gospel Life Church was blinded and disfigured in an acid attack. His assailants shouted “Allah Akbar” as they ran from the scene.

Indonesia: Christmas service was banned at church after Muslim authorities cancelled the permit to worship. Threats from violent Muslims against all Christian services.

The congregation of the embattled GKI Yasmin church in Bogor was forced to move its Christmas prayers to a member’s house after Islamic groups assembled at the disputed site and threatened to challenge the sermon on Sunday.

Islamic fundamentalist groups in Parung, Bogor regency, West Java province, are threatening and “warning” the local Catholic community, victims of attacks in anticipation of the holiday season.

Pakistan: Asia Bibi, a Christian mother of five sentenced to death on charges of “blasphemy” against Islam and over a dozen other Christians held in Pakistani jails spent Christmas Day without their families, after authorities refused requests to allow prison visits,

Sri Lanka Christmas honour killing: Muslim father beat his 17-year-old daughter to death on Christmas Eve for dating a Christian.

Iraq: Two thirds of the country’s remaining 1.4 million Christians have fled. Merry Christmas infidels!

Iraq: Sniper shoots Christian to death outside his home on Christmas Day. Merry Christmas, Infidel!

Iran: Tolerant Muslim authorities raid Christmas celebration at Christian church, and arrest everyone including children.

Texas: Honour killing 58 year old Muslim man dressed as Santa Claus kills his entire family as they were sharing Christmas presents. His daughter was dating a “non-Muslim” and his family had adopted infidel ways.

Gaza: Hamas cancels Christmas for Christians. Christians obey because they remember what happened to the chap who owned the only Bible store in Gaza.

Malaysia: Muslim authorities earlier raided a Christian church to show who is boss. Christian churches were warned to “exercise caution”… or what? Or… there will be a repeat of Christmas 2010 when violent Muslims bombed eight churches. This Christmas, Malaysian Christians are being as quiet as church mice. Fear does that.

Saudi Arabia: Saudis cut off Nigerian man’s hand for theft on Christmas Eve. No, Abdulsamad Ismail Abdullah Hawsawe isn’t a Christian – but I thought I’d mention it to remind us all that, as always, the first victims of Islam are Muslims.

Iran: Government announces on Christmas Day that a woman convicted of adultery will be hanged or stoned to death.

Barbados: Muslim teenagers at Barbados Al-Falah Muslim School are taught that stoning, beating and amputations are okay. We wonder what else they are taught about Christians and Christmas, but the school has never revealed their text books and other materials to either the public or Barbados Ministry of Education.

BFP says Merry Christmas to popular Islamic scholar Abu Mussab!

Popular Islamic scholar Abu Mussab: “Saying ‘Merry Christmas’ most evil of things… worse than fornication, and drinking alcohol and killing someone…”

“You are congratulating them (Christians) on the most evil of shirk (the Muslim sin of idolatry)…”

Hey, Abu? Our family is going to pray for you tonight at dinner. We hope and pray that someday you’ll know the joy of proclaiming Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas, Abu, to you and your family.

It’s Christmas Time

Reason for the Season …by Khaidji

Recorded in the Bible from a long time ago
Emanuel the Savior was born and the world came to know
A King of Kings and Lord of Lords
Spreading cheer and peace to all men, the Bible records
Our Savior was a gift from God to mankind
Now all men can be saved from Satan’s harmful bind

Free to enjoy the benefits that our Savior revealed
Ours to inherit once our souls were healed
Righteous living and meek spirits was our guarantee

The Savior promised through Him sinners can go free
How beautiful was this gift which is as precious today
Everyone should celebrate His arrival and convey

Seasons Greetings of love, cheer, giving and merriment
Everyone should remember the times Jesus spent
Alerting us of our Father’s blessing from above
Saving us from sin and spreading His love
Our gift of Christ Jesus is the assurance that we
Never feel discounted when giving cheer, love and charity.

Have an Eco-Christmas in Barbados… or anywhere!

How to Have an Eco-Christmas

By Lani Edghill – Green Business Barbados Coordinator, Future Centre Trust

Throughout our daily lives many of us have been consciously trying to change our habits in order to live more sustainable lives. Some of the things that many Barbadians are getting more used to are; recycling, using reusable shopping bags, reducing water and energy consumption in many ways and also educating their families and friends on ways they can do the same. In this festive time of the year it is still important to think about how we can conserve precious resources and reduce our overall carbon footprint.

Some of the ways that you can become part of the solution this Christmas; Continue reading

Bajan Reporter Talks About Drunken Santas, Barbados Asthma Crisis and Kwanzaa

I don’t know where Ian Bourne gets the energy and time to be such a prolific writer. He works by himself and sometimes publishes three or four articles in a day while four of us at BFP often struggle to produce our promised one article a day. I guess that is the difference between a seasoned media professional like Ian and a bunch of normal drunks thrown together like the “staff” at Barbados Free Press.

Ian has a few new offerings posted and even when we don’t agree with him on certain subjects (or like today when he is criticising BFP) we always enjoy his style. Here’s what’s new…

ian-bourne-bajan-santa-has-asthmaDrunken Santa – Is It Bourne Or Not?

Santa Ian weighs in on what it is like to be sweating in a costume made for a chilly New York Christmas while the little brats offer more abuse than one man can take. Then he calls one of Robert’s BFP articles “drivel” (OUCH!). Check it out … (Bad Santa? Bad Children? Bad Parents? Who is the true victim at Christmas?)

What Is Causing The Asthma Crisis In Barbados?

In this piece, Ian reports on a recent BBC television programme that revealed some disturbing information about life and death on Bim. We have a huge problem with asthma – much bigger than many other countries. Something is wrong in Barbados and no one can figure it out. Check it out… (BBC claim Barbados’ new type of lifestyle is clue to rising cases of asthma)

Kwanzaa – The Holiday Created By A Criminal Who Kidnapped & Tortured Women

Ian is getting into the festive season with his Santa piece above and by publicising a “pre-Kwanzaa” party planned in the Virgin Islands. Lot’s of good will flowing at this time of year and that’s great.

Don’t forget… the first principle of Kwanzaa is Umoja – unity of race for blacks. As it says at the official Kwanzaa Information Center: “red, or the blood, stands as the top of all things. We lost our land through blood; and we cannot gain it except through blood. We must redeem our lives through the blood. Without the shedding of blood there can be no redemption of this race.” The Kwanzaa Information Center also notes that the flag “has become the symbol of devotion for African people in America to establish an independent African nation on the North American Continent.”

karenga-kwanzaaKwanzaa’s Inventor

Kwanzaa was invented in 1966 by Ronald McKinley Everett who changed his name a few times and finally settled on Maulana Karenga. Karenga was the founder of the murderous United Slaves movement in the 1960’s and was funded at the time by the American Federal Bureau of Investigation – the FBI – in a warped scheme where the FBI decided the best way to fight the black power movement was to fund different factions to keep them from uniting.

“I’m trying to understand which of the seven principles of Kwanzaa was represented by founder Karenga putting a running hose and detergent into the mouths of kidnapping and torture victims…”

After inventing the racist celebration of Kwanzaa in 1966, in 1971 Karenga and two other associates were convicted of kidnapping two black women and torturing them in an effort to learn if they were working for anyone else.

“Deborah Jones, who once was given the Swahili title of an African queen, said she and Gail Davis were whipped with an electrical cord and beaten with a karate baton after being ordered to remove their clothes. She testified that a hot soldering iron was placed in Ms. Davis’s mouth and placed against Ms. Davis’s face and that one of her own big toes was tightened in a vise. Karenga also put detergent and running hoses in their mouths…”

I’m trying to understand which of the seven principles of Kwanzaa was represented by founder Karenga putting a running hose and detergent into the mouths of kidnapping and torture victims…

At first I thought is was Kujichagulia (Self-Determination) “To define ourselves, name ourselves, create for ourselves and speak for ourselves.”

… but then I thought it would be pretty hard to speak with the hose and detergent in the mouth, so I thought the principle represented might be…

Kuumba (Creativity) “To do always as much as we can, in the way we can, in order to leave our community more beautiful and beneficial than we inherited it.”

After all… clean is beautiful, you know!

But then I found the answer right in front of me. Of course! Karenga had two other black brothers helping him torture the women, so the principle was…

Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility) “To build and maintain our community together and make our brother’s and sister’s problems our problems and to solve them together.”

That’s the principle being illustrated by working together to torture the women!

Happy Kwanzaa to you too, Ian!

Confused Barbados Underground Blog Forgets What Season It Is…

barbados-underground-christmas1

Merry Christmas To You Too, David!

The ongoing efforts to purge “Christ” from “Christmas” and to replace this traditional Christian holiday with some lukewarm pablum of a national holiday loosely based upon traditional Christmas colours and symbols but not saying the actual “C” word has found a new co-conspirator in Barbados Underground. David’s new banner proudly proclaims “Season’s Greetings” in Christmas colours and symbols.

If David desires to wish our Muslim friends all the best as they celebrate Eid ul-Adha tomorrow, December 8th, then he should perhaps post an Islamic verse about helping the poor etc.. If he wishes to wish Happy Chanukkah to our Jewish friends, then he should consider doing so around December 22nd – and maybe put up a photo of the children playing the dreidel game (“Only with pretzels, of course – bubee can’t stand the children playing for pennies!” says one of my old friends).

And if David wants to wish Christians all the best of their religious holiday called Christmas, then he should do so instead of insulting them by communicating that the word “Christmas” is too foul or volatile to say aloud.

Last year I passed through Kolkata, India for the first time in the month of December and was amazed to hear “Away In A Manger” being played in the huge Spencer’s store – with the words “… little Lord Jesus lay down his sweet head” clearly audible. After seeing Jesus totally eradicated from British and American retail stores, I was fascinated to hear the Christmas hymn being played in a country where religion is like dynamite and people die every day because they are unlucky enough to walk down the wrong street while being of a certain religion and not another.

“You are playing Christmas hymns that say Jesus.” I said to one of the attendants.

“Yes, Sir. It is Christmas” was the reply.

Yes, indeed.

Robert
