So what’s new? More ‘Wrong Kind of Muslim’ bloodletting from the Religion of Uncontrollable Rage…
Gunmen [Those 'Gunmen' again - Ed] attacked a bus carrying Shiite Muslims in Pakistan’s insurgency-torn southwest on Tuesday, killing 13 people in the second major sectarian attack to hit the area in two weeks, police said.
Pakistan has faced mounting criticism from its minority Pakistani Shiite community and human rights groups for failing to prevent thousands of sectarian murders, which further destabilise the fragile US ally in the war on Al-Qaeda.
Tuesday’s drive-by shooting happened on the outskirts of Quetta, the capital of oil and gas-rich Baluchistan, which borders Iran and Afghanistan. Read the rest of this entry »
“Apart from abusing me sexually, he tried to force me to change my faith and kept reminding me to prepare for Ramadan,”
Hiba Abdelfadil Anglo, 16, has escaped from a gang of Muslims who kidnapped her last year, but it may be a long time before she recovers from the trauma.
As she told Compass how the kidnappers beat, raped and tried to force her to convert from Christianity to Islam, she broke into tears for nearly half an hour.
“They did many bad things to me,” she said, tears streaming down her eyes.
Abducted on June 17, 2010, she was reunited with her family on July 10.
“Several times I was warned that if I do not convert to Islam, then I risk losing my life,” she said. “The man who put me in his house on several occasions tortured me and threatened to kill me. He did not allow me to pray Christian prayers. He even insulted my family as a family of infidels.” Read the rest of this entry »
Another Zanzibar church burning – another pre-Bombadan gesture of Interfaith Dialogue™ to the tiny Christian population of this Tanzanian island outpost:
Muslim extremists on Saturday (July 30) burned down a church building on Zanzibar island off the coast of Tanzania, church leaders said, just three days after another congregation’s facility on the island was reduced to ashes.
In Fuoni on the south coast of Zanzibar (known locally as Unguja), Islamic extremists torched the building of the Evangelical Assemblies of God-Tanzania (EAGT) at around 2 p.m., said Pastor Leonard Massasa, who oversees Zanzibar’s EAGT churches. The assailants were shouting, “Away with the church – we do not want infidels to spoil our community, especially our children,” Pastor Massasa said. Read the rest of this entry »
How Muslim Pakistanis treat Christians as sub-human – and get away with it:
The often unseen or unrecognised Christian persecution and abuses at Pakistan’s lowest level of society have come into sharp focus, with the tragic tale of a street sweeper.
While one Christian sanitation worker in Lahore has been suspended and criminal charges filed against him for objecting to discrimination against fellow workers, another was killed the same month for not tending to a shopkeeper’s command fast enough.
Anayat Masih Sahotra, who has worked as a street sweeper for Lahore’s Solid Waste Management (SWM) department for 24 years, said he is facing baseless charges of forgery and fraud from his employers because of his work as a labor leader for area sweepers, who are nearly all Christians.

Africa is Islamising and radicalising rapidly – right under the nose of the rest of the world. Many ‘isolated incidents’ are steadily and predictably coalescing into a full-blown African Jihad:
Hundreds of Muslim protesters descended on a Jehovah’s Witness temple and a bar in a conservative Muslim neighbourhood of the Senegalese capital, setting the buildings on fire.
It was a rare instance of religious extremism in this normally moderate [there goes that word again - Ed] Islamic republic.
Thierno Mbeugne, spokesman for the local imam association, said the head imam in the conservative Yoff district of Dakar had asked the youth to march on Sunday against what they considered as ‘acts of aggression against their faith’. Read the rest of this entry »
