    Pope Francis set to commit "Islamophobia," canonize 800 Christians murdered by jihadists after being ordered to convert to Islam – Jihad Watch

    A JEWISH RABBI OF GREAT RENOWN SHOULD EMULATE THE POPE

    and do something similar or comparable for the 900 Banu Qurayza Jewish men who the Prophet Mohammed beheaded in a murderous fit of genocidal rage wiping out the tribe because it preferred death and slavery to conversion.

    • nina

      This makes no sense whatsoever. Firstly, Jews do not canonize their martyrs. Second, if they had to canonize martyrs, they would have their hands full canonizing Jewish martyrs from the Inquisition and other Christian atrocities. The same goes for other Jewish martyrs in the Muslim lands. Also, there were more Jewish tribes who were also annihilated by Mohammed and his followers.

      • Western Spirit

        Yes and in the beginning of Christianity Jews killed Christians too. Also the Christian killing was done in spite of Christian believes not because of them. Unlike Moslems who kill because of their believes.

        And you' re right Jews don't canonize and neither do we Protestants. But it doesn't matter now. Now we have to put all that down, Protestant and Catholic, Jew and gentile, because it's all in the past. Now, in the immediacy, the urgency, of what lies ahead of us in the future we need to band together if we are to remain free since we have mutual enemies. Peace.

      • Western Canadian

        nina, I would suggest you try to remove yourself from the bubble of politicaly correct angi-Christian bigotry that you live in. The inquisitions were no where near as bloody as most people assume, the death rate per year from the spanish inquisiton, was less than a dozen…. It did NOT extend beyond members of the rc church, and your smear is frankly sickening.

    Christian slaughter (the Sunday people) is part of the same Islamic-fueled jihad waged against the Saturday people. In fact, they go hand in hand because Sharia Law, the underpinning of Islam, dictates as such. Therefore, anyone who babbles about "moderate" Islam should be ignored, they haven't a clue – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/08/21/repeat-until-

    What the west, in general, knows about Islam can fill less than a thimble – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/08/18/what-the-west… ….hence, the slaughter continues at a frenzied pace!

    As much as I hate hearing the fate of Christians elsewhere I know this will happen because it was predicted in the Bible. Here at home our institutions are now under the control of the Left and the Left is removing Christianity in this country as well. Not as violently but just as thoroughly Christians have lost the argument because they don’t have a public pulpit to preach practical parlance and procedures.

    Instead decadence is being preached by our institutions and if Christians are Bible thumpers the Left’s thumping people over the head with their believes much much more. Like homosexuality for instance, coming out of the closet is in reference to Oscar Wild’s depiction of Gay life, in his day, when homosexuality was considered decadence of the highest order. Today it’s all Gay lifestyle, gay marriage, gays coming out of the closet gays, gay pride as if a persons sexuality is something to be proud of instead of taken for granted, gays are everywhere instead of a small percentage of the population that’s growing because it’s being promoted as desirable. And this isn’t thumping? Thump, thump, thump, thump, thump, give me a break.

    Small wonder the nation is in decline. And as first seen in New York we’re losing our freedom as well because the nation is being thumped with erroneous teachings instead of the wisdom of the Bible as Christianity goes swirling down the drain taking the freedom and thereby the greatness of the country with it.

      Remember 1962 justice hugo black -prayer out of schools,1973 we have roe vs wade-sbortion and now we have homosexual being put in to place–so were was the church in all of this-it really grieves the heart and GOD said He would not be mocked.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    It's not just Christian slaughter in the Muslim world that's the problem, as Muslims are equal opportunity slaughterers. Indeed, it's any and all other religions in the world that are targeted equally by Muslims per the dictates of Allah as well.

    In any event, even though Islam is considered to be the greatest religion in the world by all Muslims, the truth is in reality Islam is not even a religion. Indeed, the first and foremost requirement of Islam is the total, complete, and unconditional submission to the will of Allah where blasphemy and apostasy are capital offenses by all of its adherents. Meanwhile, what is the will of Allah? In essence, it is sharia, i.e., Islamic jurisprudence or Islamic law. In any case, what other religion forces its adherents to "submit" unconditionally to the will of Allah under the penalty of death? The answer is none of them do, only Islam does, which means that Islam is really a cult and a rabid form of totalitarianism that masquerades as being a peaceful religion to dupe gullible infidels. Indeed, what other religions make the pursuit of jihad in the cause of Allah to make Islam supreme a fundamental holy obligation incumbent upon all adherents? The answer is none of them, because again Islam is not really a religion. It's a cult and rabid form of totalitarianism that masquerades as being a religion to dupe gullible infidels.

    • Western Spirit

      Good post. The Left by destroying Christian influence here is creating a vacuum that Islam is poised to fill. The blindness of these people on the Left is unbelievable while our Leftist government is unwilling to even name members of Islam as our assailants.

    Muslims wont kill black christens here in the states but a majority of blacks will convert to Islam anyway then kill try to kill off white christens

      Christians that love Christ and follow His teachings would rather die than convert.
      Look to Nigeria and see for yourself.

      Skin color doesn't matter to Christ, so don't try using the race card in this.

      • WilliamJamesWard

        Missionaries my Church supports are continuously reporting about harrowing experiences
        with all kinds of murderous groups, the Islamists are the worst and violence is everywhere
        but not reported by the MSM. The killings are hideous to a hellish outburst of evil not seen in
        my lifetime but reported in the Old Testament as the "Days of Noah". We may be seeing
        this here in America where missionaries are now greatly needed……………William

    Very gratified to hear about this timely book on this vastly important subject. I, myself have come to the conclusion that the American (Christian) church is the missing ingredient in the war we are facing in this country.We have been complicant by our silence and approving by our lack of action.Time to stand on our hind legs sheeple! Seriously though, we should be undertaking a massive effort to help our fellow Christians in Syria, and wherever they are being killed,raped and tortured for the crime of being a Christian. At the same time, we have to confront the radical Islamist at every turn as they are imbeded even in this administration,education system and on down the line. I hope to get this book very soon and use it to help in my efforts to rally my fellow Christians who have the freedom (for now) to act for those who cannot.

    • WilliamJamesWard

      Sadly we see the change from outrage at outrage to apathy and denial, as if 9/11 was not
      a wake up call and all of the degeneracy about us. It seems the American spirit is waxing
      cold due to the inordinate influence of anti-Americanism and it's popularity with the left
      and the advantage Islam is given by Obama to come here and subvert. What ever happened
      to American men of strength and valor, supplanted by degenerates or to busy at
      entertainment, serious matters are a drag and well who has the time. A bright light in
      the sky is what it will take and it is probably well on it's way as promised………….William

  • Aceriter

    The major problem is that Christians do not know how to argue. As a result they never speak up about anything. And why don't they know how to argue their case? Simple answer: Look at the kinds of adult Sunday school classes in the average Evangelical church. MOST OF THEM ARE ABOUT MARRIAGE AND PARENTING!, or else about how to solve your little daily headaches. And we expect to win the day with that junk?

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

      It's not junk, it's a blessing that makes Christianity a relevant force in our day.
      But you do have a point most would rather back down for fear of offending than to call evil what it is.

      • WilliamJamesWard

        It is almost impossible to list all that has gone wrong with the American family but for sure
        television brought ideas into the home that should have been blocked. I remember when
        as a child my Grandmother would say in complete seriousness when some bad act
        occured "where in the world did they get the very idea of doing that………." What we
        thought and were exposed to was filtered to keep out evil, immorality, sinful conduct
        and that gave way to tollerance, inclusiveness and the results, not so good…….many
        blessings have gone away with the appearance and indulgence of depravity……William

    • Beth

      Aceriter: "The major problem is that Christians do not know how to argue."

      Sad – but true. A lot of them have not taken the time to do a little study on their own from time to time. A good Scripture for many to start with is (and this is only my opinion)

      Isa 34:16 Seek ye out of the book of the LORD, and read: no one of these shall fail

  • Horace

    The major problem is that in Europe and the USA Christianity is just a business for the great majority of the pastors in the churches. Most pastors aren't following the Christian news sites and depend on the mainstream media which is made up of a selection of amoral leftist atheists and various other sorts of degenerates. The reason the mainstream media covers up the slaughter of Christians is that they hate Christianity and want it destroyed. They think they will be able to get the Jihadis under control before Jihad comes to their doors. The pastors who do know what is going on are afraid to make waves and speak out even against the age old enemy of Christianity-Islam. They are hoping if they make nice with the Muslims it will all go away. The leaders of the US & European Christian churches have their heads in the sand too, and can offer only excuses, and generally ignore the abuse and slaughter of Christians in the Muslim world. Obviously, the evil one has a hand in it.

    Good article.

    Too bad articles like this are not allowed dissemination in our schools! Part of my schooling had 'news of the day and week' [not everyone had TV and few afforded a newspaper].

    • Western Spirit

      The Supreme Court banned Christianity from our schools while it did not ban the Left from teaching its believes. Believes that are as much of a religion as Christianity, but not called a religion.

      • Western Spirit

        We need to bypass the word Christian and teach our believes in school just as the Left teaches theirs.
        It can be done all it takes is the will and the means.

          • Western Spirit

            Roger,
            the Left has developed mocking into a fine art. It's their way of silencing dissent in a free country. We have to develop tin ears to get our message out there. What's so terrible about being mocked and called names?

            It's not pleasant but it's not lethal either, but it will be come lethal if we don't speak up while we can. And If we don't speak up we're being complicit in our own demise.

            After all it happened to Jesus, the mocking and name calling, and the time has come when sitting comfortably in a pew while calling ourselves a Christian without sacrifice is over. The evil one is on the prowl and triumphing the world over.

    The world is silent about the war against non-Muslims. The 1,400 WAR that NEVER stopped. It is a dreadful crime to remain silent!

    SILENCE IS CONSENT.

    Under Islam, Egypt’s Christians have lived in hell for centuries. The
    kidnappings, rapes and violent conversion to Islam of Christian
    children and other horrors has greatly worsened under the Muslim Brotherhood.
    What happened to Christian Egypt is a WARNING to the world.

    The next stage of a nation conquered by Muslims is the MASSIVE
    kidnapping of non-Muslim female CHRISTIAN children by male Muslims.

    The kidnappings are perpetrated with the full cooperation of ruling elites,
    courts and the police. The agonized parents NEVER get their beloved
    children back. The severely abused, terrorized girls are FOREVER
    separated from their loving parents and family. These terrible crimes
    against God and humanity must NOT be allowed to happen in America, Europe and
    Britain!
