NTTIMES - even wrote SYRIAN REBALS ARE AL QUADA.... And Obama is Arming them?

CAIRO — In Syria’s largest city, Aleppo, rebels aligned with Al Qaeda control the power plant, run the bakeries and head a court that applies Islamic law. Elsewhere, they have seized government oil fields, put employees back to work and now profit from the crude they produce.


A bakery outside Aleppo, where the Qaeda-aligned Nusra Front is running the power plant and even distributing flour.

Across Syria, rebel-held areas are dotted with Islamic courts staffed by lawyers and clerics, and by fighting brigades led by extremists. Even the Supreme Military Council, the umbrella rebel organization whose formation the West had hoped would sideline radical groups, is stocked with commanders who want to infuse Islamic law into a future Syrian government.

Nowhere in rebel-controlled Syria is there a secular fighting force to speak of.

This is the landscape President Obama confronts as he considers how to respond to growing evidence that Syrian officials have used chemical weapons, crossing a “red line” he had set. More than two years of violence have radicalized the armed opposition fighting the government of President Bashar al-Assad, leaving few groups that both share the political vision of the United States and have the military might to push it forward.

Among the most extreme groups is the notorious Al Nusra Front, the Qaeda-aligned force declared a terrorist organization by the United States, but other groups share aspects of its Islamist ideology in varying degrees.

“Some of the more extremist opposition is very scary from an American perspective, and that presents us with all sorts of problems,” said Ari Ratner, a fellow at the Truman National Security Project and former Middle East adviser in the Obama State Department. “We have no illusions about the prospect of engaging with the Assad regime — it must still go — but we are also very reticent to support the more hard-line rebels.”

Syrian officials recognize that the United States is worried that it has few natural allies in the armed opposition and have tried to exploit that with a public campaign to convince, or frighten, Washington into staying out of the fight. At every turn they promote the notion that the alternative to Mr. Assad is an extremist Islamic state.

The Islamist character of the opposition reflects the main constituency of the rebellion, which has been led since its start by Syria’s Sunni Muslim majority, mostly in conservative, marginalized areas. The descent into brutal civil war has hardened sectarian differences, and the failure of more mainstream rebel groups to secure regular arms supplies has allowed Islamists to fill the void and win supporters.

The religious agenda of the combatants sets them apart from many civilian activists, protesters and aid workers who had hoped the uprising would create a civil, democratic Syria.

When the armed rebellion began, defectors from the government’s staunchly secular army formed the vanguard. The rebel movement has since grown to include fighters with a wide range of views, including Qaeda-aligned jihadis seeking to establish an Islamic emirate, political Islamists inspired by the Muslim Brotherhood and others who want an Islamic-influenced legal code like that found in many Arab states.

“My sense is that there are no seculars,” said Elizabeth O’Bagy, of the Institute for the Study of War, who has made numerous trips to Syria in recent months to interview rebel commanders.

Of most concern to the United States is the Nusra Front, whose leader recently confirmed that the group cooperated with Al Qaeda in Iraq and pledged fealty to Al Qaeda’s top leader, Ayman al-Zawahri, Osama bin Laden’s longtime deputy. Nusra has claimed responsibility for a number of suicide bombings and is the group of choice for the foreign jihadis pouring into Syria.

Another prominent group, Ahrar al-Sham, shares much of Nusra’s extremist ideology but is made up mostly of Syrians.

The two groups are most active in the north and east and are widely respected by other rebels for their fighting abilities and their ample arsenal, much of it given by sympathetic donors in the gulf. And both helped lead campaigns to seize military bases, dams on the Euphrates River and the provincial capital of Raqqa Province in March, the only regional capital entirely held by rebel forces.

Nusra’s hand is felt most strongly in Aleppo, where the group has set up camp in a former children’s hospital and has worked with other rebel groups to establish a Shariah Commission in the eye hospital next door to govern the city’s rebel-held neighborhoods. The commission runs a police force and an Islamic court that hands down sentences that have included lashings, though not amputations or executions as some Shariah courts in other countries have done.

Nusra fighters also control the power plant and distribute flour to keep the city’s bakeries running.

While many residents initially feared them, some have come to respect them for providing basic services and working to fill the city’s security vacuum. Secular activists, however, have chafed at their presence. At times, Nusra fighters have clashed with other rebels who reject their ideology.

In the oil-rich provinces of Deir al-Zour and Hasaka, Nusra fighters have seized government oil fields, putting some under the control of tribal militias and running others themselves.

“They are the strongest military force in the area,” said the commander of a rebel brigade in Hasaka reached via Skype. “We can’t deny it.”

But most of Nusra’s fighters joined the group for the weapons, not the ideology, he said, and some left after discovering the Qaeda connection.

“Most of the youth who joined them did so to topple the regime, not because they wanted to join Al Qaeda,” he said, speaking on the condition of anonymity for fear of retaliation.

As extremists rose in the rebel ranks, the United States sought to limit their influence, first by designating Nusra a terrorist organization, and later by pushing for the formation of the Supreme Military Council, which is linked to the exile opposition group, the Syrian National Coalition.

Although led by an army defector, Gen. Salim Idris, the council has taken in the leaders of many overtly Islamist battalions. One called the Syrian Liberation Front has been integrated nearly wholesale into the council; many of its members coordinate closely with the Syrian Islamic Front, a group that includes the extremist Ahrar al-Sham, according to a recent report by Ms. O’Bagy, of the Institute for the Study of War.

A spokesman for the council, Louay Mekdad, said that its members reflected Syrian society and that it had no ties to Nusra or other radical groups. “The character of the Syrian people is Islamic, but it is stupid to think that Syria will turn into Afghanistan,” he said. “That’s just an excuse for those who don’t want to help Syria.”

The Obama administration has said it needs more conclusive information before it acts on the Syrian government’s reported use of chemical weapons. It remains unclear whether such action would translate to increased support for the rebels.

In the past, United States officials saw the Islamist groups’ abundant resources as the main draw for recruits, said Steven Heydemann, a senior adviser at the United States Institute of Peace, which works with the State Department.

“The strategy is based on the current assessment that popular appeal of these groups is transactional, not ideological, and that opportunities exist to peel people away by providing alternative support and resources,” he said.

Mr. Heydemann acknowledged, however, that the current momentum toward radicalism could be hard to reverse.

The challenge, he said, is to end the conflict before “the opportunity to create a system of governance not based on militant Islamic law is lost.”

Emile Hokayem, a Middle East analyst at the International Institute for Strategic Studies, framed the rebels’ dilemma another way: “How do you denounce the Nusra Front as extremists when they are playing such an important military role and when they look disciplined, resourceful and committed?”

From the start, the Syrian government has sought to portray the rebels as terrorists carrying out an international plot to weaken the country, and the rise of extremist groups has strengthened its case and increased support among Syrians who fear that a rebel victory could mean the end of the secular Syrian state.

Many rebels and opposition activists complain about the Western focus on Islamist groups, some even dismissing the opposition’s ideological differences.

“We all want an Islamic state and we want Shariah to be applied,” said Maawiya Hassan Agha, a rebel activist reached by Skype in the northern village of Sarmeen. He said a country’s laws should flow from its people’s beliefs and compared Syrians calling for Islamic law with the French banning Muslim women from wearing face veils.

“In France, people don’t like face veils so they passed laws against them,” he said. “It’s the same thing here. It’s our right to push for the laws we want.”

Syria Rebels (Obama's friends) Behead 2 Christians -1 Priest-Video Plus

Mmm maybe obama will be inspired to send the militia more weapons....some machettes perhaps -

Report:Syria Militants Behead

Two Christians

Two Christians, one of them a priest, have been beheaded by militants because they were suspected of cooperating with the Syrian military, according to an Al-Alam report.
A video uploaded to the internet yesterday shows two men with their hands bound, surrounded by dozens of people, many of them armed and cheering in celebration.
Note: Video Below Article
The two are brutally executed – beheaded with a small combat knife. Echoing previous beheading recorded by insurgents, the head is held up to the cheers of onlookers and then placed on the body.
This month has seen an escalation in sectarian atrocities committed by insurgents, who have been publicly armed and supported by America, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey and other actors. Indeed, the atrocities are coinciding with further arms transfers – with new advanced weaponry witnessed in the hands of militants in the past number of weeks.
The most recent beheading recorded on video and uploaded to the internet, reportedly took place in Idlib countryside.
Recently, a Catholic priest was executed by foreign militants. The monastery in which he resided was burnt and looted, echoing the events of a massacre in Homs last month which resulted in the entire population of a Christian village being wiped out and their houses and possessions burnt. Two Christian bishops who were kidnapped by Chechen gunmen in Aleppo earlier this year, are still missing.
As well as Christians, Shia villages are receiving the brunt of a boldly-confident insurgency. This newly-found confidence has resulted in having just recently received confirmation of America’s intent to supply them with more weapons. Last week, militants massacred dozens of villagers in the province’s town of Hatla. Since then, summary executions and sectarian house-to-house raids have taken place.
The following video is extremely graphic and viewer discretion is advised. Many thanks to Arabi Souri, a Syrian activist for the translated version of the video.

Example of One Muslim Sex Ring -

This is the future - as we continue to import these followers into the west.....note how the UK paper will write ' members of Oxford' or London or Stratford or XYZ town but not that its A MUSLIM SEX RING preying on non muslim girls - which is allowed by the Quran and Hadith.( non believers are chattel )

Members of Oxford sex ring 'threatened to cut off the face one of their victims and decapitate her baby after she tried to tell police about years of abuse'

  • One victim 'considered suicide' and another 'now suffers from PTSD'
  • Parents tell Old Bailey how seven defendants ruined daughters' lives
  • One girl's statement says she is prone to depression and self-harming
  • Other victim says she suffers nightmares, panic attacks and flashbacks
  • Two-day sentencing hearing for sadistic paedophile ring began today


Members of a sadistic paedophile ring convicted of grooming vulnerable underage girls for sexual exploitation threatened to decapitate the baby of one of their young victims, a court heard today.

The Old Bailey in central London was also told that one of the Oxford-based sex ring’s victims has considered suicide while another suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of the abuse.

Statements from some of the victims' parents were read out in court ahead of the sentencing of the gang, in which they described how the seven defendants had ruined their daughters' lives.

Mohammed Karrar

Bassam Karrar

Evil: Six of the defendants listened from the dock, but the court heard that Mohammed Karrar (left), 38, had refused to come up from the cells. He was convicted last month with his brother, Bassam Karrar (right), 34

The court heard the extent of the girls' psychological damage, with one admitting she is prone to depression and self-harming, while another suffers nightmares, panic attacks and flashbacks.

A statement from the mother of that girl said her daughter developed chronic insomnia and also suffered a minor stroke, believed to have been brought on by the stress of what happened.

She said the family had to leave their home, leading to her daughter receiving a call in which she was threatened with having her face cut off, and relatives having their throat slit and being decapitated.

As a two-day sentencing hearing got underway, referring to a statement written by one of the victims herself, prosecutor Noel Lucas QC told the court: ‘She has suffered psychological issues.

‘She has been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and aggressive bouts of anxiety and depression as a result. She mentions that although she has managed to have a successful job and make a life for herself, she has missed out on a vital part of her education.

‘Her self-confidence as a result of the abuse is next to none. She struggles with trust and with romantic relationships. Physical affection is something of which she is wary.’

Akhtar Dogar

Anjum Dogar

Sickening: Another two brothers, Akhtar Dogar (left), 32, and Anjum Dogar (right), 31, were also convicted at the Old Bailey of charges including rape, trafficking and organising prostitution

Reading directly from the victim impact statement, Mr Lucas said: ‘It's hard for my family when I go through depressive stages because I'm prone to self-harm.’

Another mother said of her now grown-up daughter: ‘I think the damage done to her by these men is irrevocable.’

'Her self-confidence as a result of the abuse is next to none. She struggles with trust and with romantic relationships. Physical affection is something of which she is wary'

Noel Lucas QC, prosecuting, referring to victim impact statement

The statements also referred to the failures of local authorities in dealing with what was going on, and how some of the parents themselves were blamed before the truth was uncovered.

One father said: ‘If these men hadn't been doing such vile things to my daughter then we wouldn't have had to deal with social services, children's homes or police. I don't want any other parent to feel as impotent as we were.’

He added that the abuse had had a ‘devastating effect on me and my family’.

The man's wife also made a statement in which she said of their daughter: ‘She went from a loving, sweet young child to a sullen, frightened and evasive child.

Kamar Jamil

Assad Hussain

Facing jail: Kamar Jamil (left), 27, and Assad Hussain (right) , 32, were also found guilty after the five-month trial

‘She went to being frustrated and aggressive towards me if I tried to reach out to her. I guess that was her way of trying to deal with what was happening to her.

Convicted: Zeeshan Ahmed, 28, was found guilty of charges involving the abuse of underage girls

Convicted: Zeeshan Ahmed, 28, was found guilty of charges involving the abuse of underage girls

‘She was protecting me from the truth and horror of what she was being subjected to. They took my daughter's teenage years, which I'm sure seems obvious, but those teenage years were taken from me too.’

She also referred to the failure of the police and social services in finding out what was happening and protecting the girls, writing that they were made to feel like they were ‘over-reacting’.

‘I can recall countless incidents when I have been upset and frustrated by various professional bodies,’ she said.

Six of the defendants listened from the dock as Mr Lucas outlined some of the victim impact statements, but the court heard that Mohammed Karrar, 38, had refused to come up from the cells.

He was convicted last month with his brother, Bassam Karrar, 34, and another two brothers, Akhtar Dogar, 32, and Anjum Dogar, 31, of charges including rape, trafficking and organising prostitution.

Kamar Jamil, 27, Assad Hussain, 32, and Zeeshan Ahmed, 28, were also found guilty following the five-month trial during which the jury was told the gang sexually exploited girls as young as 11

Canada: Progressive Muslims group rallies against jihad terrorism, draws 24 people

Huge demonstration was planned to show ISLAM HAS BEEN HIJACKED BY RADICALS......24 muslims show up . Yet we have THE MUSLIM CONGRESS of North American - hundreds of thousands strong ( see what they are about...below the " peaceful " muslim protest.)

One of the cornerstones of the argument over the last few days for keeping me out of the U.K. is the false claim that I "demonize all Muslims" in my critique of jihad and Islamic supremacism. In reality, I point out that Islamic supremacists claim to represent the authentic interpretation of the Qur'an and Islam, that they make recruits among peaceful Muslims with this claim, that most reputedly "moderate" organizations in the U.S. are tied to the Muslim Brotherhood (as has been abundantly established by the Justice Department), and that genuinely peaceful and non-supremacist Muslims have not effectively countered the Islamic supremacist appeal among Muslims.

All these facts are established anew by the tiny turnout at the small number of Muslim anti-terror demonstrations that have taken place. Several years ago a group called the Free Muslims Coalition held what it called a "Free Muslims March Against Terror," intending to "send a message to the terrorists and extremists that their days are numbered ... and to send a message to the people of the Middle East, the Muslim world and all people who seek freedom, democracy and peaceful coexistence that we support them." In the run-up to the event it got enthusiastic national and international publicity, but it ended up drawing about twenty-five people. And that is about Only 24 muslims is as many as this demo in Toronto drew.

Now the group appears to be defunct; its website hasn't been updated since December 2011.

"Progressive Muslims group launched in Toronto to reclaim ‘hijacked’ faith," by Wendy Gillis for the Toronto Star, June 17 (thanks to Rick):

Tahir Gora shouts into a microphone, cuing a response from the sparse group of supporters gathered with him at the steps of Queen’s Park.

“Terrorism,” he yells.

“Unacceptable!” they reply.

Their voices carry across the grassy Legislature grounds that are, with the exception of a few bike cops and pedestrians, deserted. A stack of unused signs, their slogans reading “Hate is not my religion” and “Love it or leave my Canada,” lean up against a nearby pole.

Mighty but small, it was not quite the turnout the newly formed Progressive Muslims Institute Canada had in mind for their first rally, held last week. .....

“It’s 25 years that I’ve been in Canada, but I haven’t seen the Muslim community come out to protest,” said rally attendee Rasheed Nadeem. “There are progressive people, but they are silent. They do talk, but in their dining rooms.”

Fear plays a role, said Arshad Mahmood, honorary director of the new progressive Muslims group — “fear of being an outcast, fear of social boycott, fear of being trashed by certain extremist priests,” he said.

Saadia Ali Bokhari is a well known activist in the GTA Muslim community, and has spoken out on controversial issues including supporting the ban of face coverings in Canadian citizenship ceremonies. Because of her activism, she says she has been the recipient of hate and threats.

Last month, she participated in a downtown rally protesting the suspected vote-rigging in Pakistan’s recent election. After a photo of her at the rally was posted online, Bokhari began receiving harassing and threatening messages. She said her brother and sister in Pakistan were also contacted by people saying Bokhari needed to stop speaking out.

Bokhari believes some people are offended by the idea of a vocal, confident woman. “This is what they are doing to discourage me,” Bokhari said.

Mahmood, a Mississauga mortgage broker who moved to Canada from Pakistan in 1999, says another factor keeping Canadian Muslims from demonstrating is the false sense of security that Islamic extremism won’t affect Canada.

“That is a mentality that develops with some people to stay in a comfort zone — as long as it doesn’t happen on my street, I’m comfortable,” he said. At the rally he apologized for falling victim to this thinking, saying: “I am sorry that I didn’t stand up when my religion was being hijacked.”

For some Muslims, terrorism is so foreign to their idea of the Muslim faith that it seems odd to have to decry it, says Max Khan, an Oakville town councillor active in the Muslim community, because “we don’t identify ourselves as being a terrorist group.”

But he believes that community leaders and imams still have a responsibility to condemn terrorism.

“I do hold people who sit on the sidelines accountable,” Khan said.

There is frustration, however, that Muslim statements decrying violent extremism are falling on deaf ears. Dr. Aliya Khan is a member of an interfaith group in Peel and has been working to spread the message that Islam is peaceful. She says many imams are regularly denouncing terrorism, but the media aren’t covering their statements.

This is an oft-repeated claim, but it is absolute rubbish. The media is avid to find moderates, and routinely runs glowing puff pieces about reputed moderates, including some who turn out to be anything but. That's how Anwar al-Awlaki ended up getting praised in the New York Times, which hailed al-Awlaki on October 19, 2001 as one of "a new generation of Muslim leader capable of merging East and West."

In December, for instance, several international imams in Toronto for a large conference spoke out against extremist violence and “there wasn’t a peep from the media,” Khan said.

“The imams are feeling very frustrated, and they say ‘we’ve condemned this a billion times, we don’t know what to do,’” she said....

Act against it. Teach against it. Condemnations are not enough.

Muslim on Christian Genocide- Its not Al Quada its simply Islam

A few recent examples of the slaughtering ......

Papua Indonesia: From Mission Field to Killing Field

ICC Note: The following article is an excellent summary of the developing tragedy in West Papua Indonesia. The author, Elizabeth Kendal, shows how religious discrimination against the native and largely Christian population of West Papua is intertwined with politics and Islamic colonization of the island. News of events in West Papua are typically shaded in political overtones and the Indonesian government has been quick to deny any wrongdoing despite mounting evidence that severe violence, some of it instigated by Indonesian authorities, is taking place.
6/18/2013 Indonesia (CIC) - In the 1950s, missionaries working with Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) USA and Australia brought the Gospel to the central highlands of the then Dutch New Guinea (the western part of the island of New Guinea). Since then, Indonesia has invaded, occupied, annexed, Islamized, militarized and colonized the region.
Today, the indigenous, predominantly Christian Melanesians of Papua are a suffering and dying people. Like so many persecuted minorities in strategic 'swing' states, Papuans find their appalling plight being covered up and whitewashed by powerful forces engaged in 'realpolitik', the amoral politics of money and power. As long as Indonesia is a geo-strategically important nation, it will not be in any government's 'interests' to do anything for the Papuans. However, our God is a God 'who pleads the cause of his people' and acts! (See Isaiah 51:21-23; Proverbs 22:22,23; and Lamentations 3:55-58).
Selpius Bobii is the General Chairperson of Front Pepera (The United Front for the Struggle of the People of Papua). He is a political prisoner, one of the 'Jayapura Five' arrested in the violent military crackdown on the Third Papuan People's Congress in October 2011 (see RLPB 131, 26 Oct 2011). According to Bobii, 'The main means of annihilation are overt and covert military operations carried out by the Republic of Indonesia.' The extreme ethnic and religious hatred that many Javanese Muslim soldiers have for tribal Melanesian Christians fuels the most appalling human rights abuses. On the Internet, there is video of Indonesian soldiers torturing and brutally killing Papuans they abuse as 'kaffir' (infidels). Furthermore, the introduction of strong alcohol, worm-infested pork, AIDS-infected prostitutes and compulsory 'family planning' are all hastening the decline of the dispirited, indigenous population. On top of all this, Indonesia's policy of transmigration (encouraging Javanese Muslims to settle in the Christian regions of eastern Indonesia) ensures the indigenous Papuans' demographic demise. As Bobii notes, researchers at both Yale University, USA, and Sydney University, Australia, have concluded that what is happening in Papua is genocide.
On 21 February 2013, after Indonesia refused to heed community appeals and stop building military outposts on a sacred burial site, Papua independence guerrilla fighters took up arms and resisted. Eight Indonesian Special Forces (Kopassus) soldiers and four non-Papuan civilians were killed in the clash. Thousands of Indonesian security forces subsequently flooded in to 'sweep' the communities around Puncak Jaya in the western central highlands. By 26 February at least 18 houses and five GIDI churches [Evangelical Church of Indonesia], two schools and a library in Tingginambut had been razed by the combined police and military forces. Thousands of Papuan civilians have fled into the bush. Evidence is emerging of massacres. Dozens of Papuan civilians are reported to have been plucked from their homes, schools, gardens and churches to be raped, tortured, mutilated, dismembered and decapitated. Despite photographic evidence, the Indonesian government is dismissing the reports of killings and disappearances as 'rumours' and propaganda. Yet according to credible reports (27 May), at least 41 Papuan civilians are dead with some 30 missing. Six of the dead were village chiefs and social leaders (including at least one pastor) who had been invited to attend the 9 April inauguration of new Papua Governor Lukas Enembe in Jayapura. They were intercepted, tortured and killed while returning home.


On June 1st, approximately 160 Christians were forced to flee their villages after they were attacked by Muslim extremists. The villages of Malipayon, Saban of Barnagay, Maybula and New Bunawan were attacked at about 9 a.m. that Saturday. An estimated 300 armed men fired more than five mortars in an attempt to cause harm to the unsuspecting residents of these communities.
The Christians who fled the attacks are now in need of food, mosquitonets, bed sheets, sleeping mats and medicine. Many have become ill because they weren’t able to take theirbedding or medications with them while fleeing the attacks. These persecuted Christians are currently unable to return to their villages because they fear the militant Muslims will kill them and burn down their homes. VOM has provided these suffering believers basic necessities such as food, mosquito nets, blanketsand medicine.

PAKISTAN: Family Pressured to Compromise Charges

Sources: Legal Evangelical Association Development, Assist News Service, Strategic World Impact
According to the Legal Evangelical Association Development (LEAD), aChristian relief and advocacy group, Fouzia Bibi of Village Roday (District of Kasur) was a victim of sexual assault. During the early evening of January 25th, 2013, 15-year-old Fouzia was bringing milk to the landlord from one of his nearby cattle areas. Along the way, two Muslims armed with pistols, Sher Muhammad and Shabir Ali, reportedly abducted and imprisoned her in a room. The alleged assailants then brutally raped and tortured her. No one could hear the cries of the victimized Christian girl who was left unconscious.
The girl’s father, Malooka Masih, notified National Director LEAD Advocate Sardar Mushtaq Gill on May 24th that a bail hearing had been filed in Lahore’s High Court for the alleged perpetrators. Prior to this, the victim’s cousin, Alam Ashiq, was helping the Christian family throughout the ordeal. However, Fouzia’s father was recently notified that those accused of the rape had 
enlisted law enforcement cooperation from the city of Muridkey. This has resulted in Alam being arrested for involvement in “a case” (details not known), which was registered against “unknown people” about six months ago. Using Alam as a lever, law enforcement officials are pressuring the family to compromise on the charges so that bail can be granted to the alleged rapists.
Representative Sardar Mushtaq Gill appeared before a deputy superintendent of police in Muridkey in an attempt to advocate for justice in the case. He said it is a common occurrence for complainants to be pressurized by a variety of different tactics, including making them allegedly involved in unspecified crimes with the intent of bringing about “compromise.” Read about other cases of injustice at the Pakistan Country Report.
First of all, let’s lift up in prayer young Fouzia who has been violated and traumatized by the violent assault. May our compassionate Saviour minister greatly needed comfort and healing in her life. Also pray for Fouzia’s devastated family who are not only concerned for her well-being but now also must contend with the injustice and manipulation of law enforcement officers. Ask for God’s mighty intervention in the situation…granting wisdom to the family’s legal representatives, favour with the court officials, dismissal of the false charges against Alam, required disciplinary measures for the perpetrators, and an extra measure of strength and spiritual encouragement for the entire family. (We invite you to share your prayers on our prayer wall.)

LAOS: Christian Families Face Expulsion for Their Faith

Source: Release International
Families in two villages have been asked to leave their homes and resettle elsewhere because they have turned to Christ. Village chief Keang Khean of north-central Laos has asked all Christians to leave immediately. Tensions are high in the village, which is located in the Chomphet district of Luang Prabang province. Meanwhile, three families in the village of Sanam have been given official notice that they should leave, after experiencing two years of persecution. The 18 members of the Ser, Taam and Thong families had their papers confiscated last year and still have not had them returned.
Prayer has also been requested for a house church in the Hom district of Vientiane province. The four families who founded this church came to Christ after a woman was healed of a serious illness in 2005 when a pastor prayed for her. The families had been attending a church which was a six-mile walk away, but decided to begin a house church in their own village, a congregation that has since grown to include 16 families. However, these believers have faced stiff opposition from others in the village, including accusations that their worship creates disharmony. On one occasion, a police officer threatened them with violence unless they recanted their faith. For more information on the suffering of Christians in Laos, go to the Laos Country Report.
Thank God for the resilience and courage of these Christian families who are risking everything as they bear witness of God’s love. May many others be drawn to Christ as a result. Pray for the officials who are demanding these believers to leave their villages…that they will realize how Christianity can serve to actually bring about positive changes to their communities, rather than discord.

Blame it on mental illness. Why did he only try to decapitate his own parentsafter he converted to Islam? Surely he was mentally ill before he converted. Yet he never tried to kill his own parents in 43 years of his life – until he converted to Islam, that is.

A relative to the victims write:

His parents were from Acapulco. Their names were Noemi Chavez Garcia and Aurelio Jacinto Vargas. They were returning from San Cristobal, Chiapas to visit their son and to help him out with money, but instead of being grateful, he grabbed a kitchen knife and slit his dad’s throat, killing him.

His mother tried to escape into the streets, but the killer caught up with her and slit her throat open too, dragging her lifeless body back to her dead husband where he tried to decapitate them.

Witnesses saw him murdering people and called the authorities. They promptly arrested the killer and found his dead parents in his room with a book of Koran next to them.

The reason I know this is because the victims were my uncle and aunt, whom I’ve known since I was a child. Everyone in my family is taking it really hard. It’s a horrible tragedy for us all.

* Gilberto Garcia Chavez, 43 years old, killed with his fists to his mother and stepfather because God asked him to.

Palenque, Chiapas / Friday, February 8, 2013

A man deranged, apparently a religious fanatic and follower of Islam, coldly slaughtered his elderly parents in the colony Pakalkin of this city, after he received God’s command to kill them, which made him wildly attack them with a knife.

The couple had just arrived from San Cristobal to visit their son who lives in this city of Palenque.

The bloody events took place after 9:00 pm yesterday, in a house that is located on the street Bonampak, Kin Pakal colony, when neighbors called the emergency number 066 to report the assault, after witnessing how the demoniac subject grabbed the back of the elderly woman while she was trying to escape to the street and then cut her throat with a knife. He then took her limp body and drag it to the house, where he left it by the body of the stepfather.

No sign of sadness or remorse: Muslim convert Gilberto Garcia Chavez, 43 years old, slaughtered his mother Naomi Chavez Garcia, 63 years old, and stepfather Jacinto Aurelio Vargas, 65, because “Allah told me to.” The incident occurred in the colony Pakalkin city of Palenque, Chiapas.

Mexican Convert to Islam Murders Both His Parents

The parents of Gilberto Garcia Chavez, who he tried to decapitate after slitting their throats because they were ‘infidels’ according to the Koran.

Several municipal police patrol arrived on the scene and surrounded the house while trying to convince the subject to surrender.

After several minutes a male person, who identified with the name of Gilberto Garcia Chavez, 43 years old, left the house wearing bermuda shorts and bloodstained shirt to be delivered to the municipal police.

They subjected him and put him under guard, and later entered the room located behind a home where they found two elderly people lying on the floor in a pool of blood with stab wounds in different parts of the body and a throat slit where life eluded them.

In the fourth of the murderer was found a copy of the Koran, the holy book of Islam where the prophet Muhammad proclaimed that Allah is God and Mohammed is his prophet. Apparently his parents did not belong to that religion, and that had put them in the crosshairs of the fanatic as “infidels” and therefore worthy of death.

The prosecutor in turn, accompanied by experts from the District Attorney moved to the site to attest to the facts and carry out the removal of the bodies, of those respondents living names Naomi Chavez Garcia, 63 years old and Jacinto Aurelio Vargas, 65, native of Acapulco, Guerrero, to be transferred to the plates of Semefo to practice them the autopsy to determine the cause of death.

The suspect was handed over to the police officers of the State Specialized (PEE) to be transferred to the regional headquarters where he argued that the main reason which brutally murdered was because God asked him, since the opposite would be the soul that was to be sacrificed.

The parricide reported that during the first hours of the day, the victims, his mother and stepfather, arrived first class terminal after tell who came to visit and took them to his home where minutes later he received divine messages to kill them and they were satanic worshipers who did not believe in God, so they took a machete and went about Mr. who responded and received a defensive wound on the hand that fingers flew.

However it was submitted and stabbed several times, even though his wife tried to defend him, to see him lying on the floor his mother tried to escape but stopped in the courtyard and stabbed her several times before cutting the jugular.

Gilberto Garcia Chavez said he dragged the body of his mother to the side of his father and then tried to decapitate the father.

Minutes later he heard the sirens and decided to surrender to authorities, but would rather be arrested by the army, and who he was a member of the 12th. Cavalry Regiment in the state of Sinaloa, until 1987 when he resigned.

The alleged murderer was taken to the cells of the Prosecutor’s Office and made available to the ministerial authorities, accused of possible crimes of homicide and the issues, to be given legal status. Initial investigations indicate that the alleged perpetrator may suffer from some mental imbalance that drove him to commit the savage murders.
