CHURCH WAS ON ISIS HIT LIST

Catholic church where priest was murdered was among several targets found on suspected jihadi arrested last year

A list was discovered on suspected ISIS terrorist Sid Ahmed Ghlam who was arrested last April amid fears he was planning more attacks in France

PETER ALLEN
26th July 2016

THE CHURCH where a priest was murdered by Islamist knifemen was on a ‘hit list’ found on an alleged ISIS terrorist arrested last year.

Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray was one of a number of Catholic churches singled out for attacks by the terror group, Sid Ahmed Ghlam, 24, was arrested in April 2015 after he called an ambulance in Paris after shooting himself in the leg.

Father Jacques Hamel, 86, was murdered at the altar by two fanatics earlier today while holding a morning service.

He was reportedly beheaded by the knifemen who took two nuns and several worshippers hostage at the church in northern France before being shot dead by police.

Another hostage is said to be ‘fighting for their life’.

Investigators believe he was a terrorist planning ‘imminent attacks’ in France on the instructions of ISIS leaders.

Investigators found an arsenal of weapons in Ghlam’s car, which was parked nearby, and at his student accommodation.

It included Kalashnikovs, a police-issue pistol, and a number of bullet-proof vests.

Documents found at his flat and in a search of his computer and telephone, suggested Ghlam was in contact with a French speaker in Syria who had ordered him to carry out attacks on churches.

These included the Sacre-Couer basilica in Paris, and places of worship including the one in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray targeted today.

Ghlam is currently in a high-security prison while waiting trial for ‘murder, attempted murder, association with criminals with a view to commit crimes against people’ and for other infractions ‘connected to a terrorist organisation’.

The computer student, who born in Algeria, was also charged with the murder of a 32-year-old woman, who was found in the passenger seat of her burning car after his arrest.

Dance instructor Aurelie Chatelain, a mother of one, who had just attended a Pilates class, died after she was shot three times in the head, in what police believe may have been an attempt by Ghlam to hijack her car.

Well, the killers were shouting Daesh?  That seems odd because politicians use that as an insult for Islamic State and Islamic State has threatened to cut the tongues out of people using the term.


ISIS knifemen 'forced French priest to kneel and filmed themselves slitting his throat in horror church attack'

26 JUL 2016
SOPHIE EVANS

A nun who escaped the horror attack says Parish priest Jacques Hamel was made to get to knees before he was brutally murdered at the Normandy church

The ISIS terrorists who carried out the France church attack forced a parish priest to kneel before filming themselves slitting his throat, it has emerged.

Father Jacques Hamel, 84, was made to get to knees before he was brutally slayed at the church in Normandy this morning, says a nun who escaped the attack.

His murderers captured the sickening assault on video, according to Sister Danielle, who was one of several worshippers taken hostage during the incident.

"They forced him to kneel and he tried to defend himself and that is how the drama started," the devastated nun told RMC radio this afternoon.

Speaking to BFM TV, she added that the terrorists 'recorded themselves' carrying out the killing and did 'a sort of sermon around the altar in Arabic'.

"It's a horror," Sister Danielle said.

The nun said she fled the church in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray, near the northern city of Rouen, at the moment that one of the assailants killed the priest.

The two terrorists were later shot dead by cops after emerging from the church.

According to local media, witnesses said the men shouted 'Allahu Akbar' as they came out of the building. One was described as bearded and wearing a Muslim skullcap.

The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the shocking attack, which saw four people taken hostage - one of whom is in a serious condition in hospital.

It must have slipped the Frenchman's mind while he was choosing his preferred version of events.

MUSLIMS Threaten California Church with “Allahu Akbars” During Sunday Mass

Jim Hoft
Aug 12th, 2016


Oh nice. So this is what we have to look forward to in Obama’s “new America.”

Father Josiah Trenham described the threats on his Orthodox Church in California.

Muslims screamed “Allahu Akbars” at St. Andrew Orthodox Church during its Sunday service.
They brought their bullhorn so everyone would get the message.

Via FOX News and Jihad Watch:

As Father Josiah Trenham prepared to read the Gospel, several parishioners discreetly scooped up their babies, retreated up the aisles of St. Andrew Orthodox Church and out into the spring air, so as not to allow the crying of little ones to disturb the divine liturgy.

The time-honored tradition was shattered when a car passed by the Riverside, Calif., church, slowing down as the front passenger leaned out of his window and bellowed menacingly through a bullhorn, according to witnesses.

“Allahu Akbar!” the unidentified man repeated several times as the unnerved parents drew their infants close and exchanged worried glances.

Witnesses were able to give Riverside police a description of the green Honda Civic, but not of the three occupants. Some told police they believed one or more of the men may have been taking photographs, according to Officer Ryan Railsback. Although Trenham insisted multiple congregants heard the Arabic phrase, Railsback noted no mention of it was in the police report.

Whatever the case, no law was broken – even if an unmistakable message was sent and received.

“Be calm and to keep a special vigilance over the property and our children while we are at church,” Trenham wrote in an email to parishioners in which he recounted the disturbing event. “Pray that these provocative young men might repent of their intimidation and be saved.”

Trenham told FoxNews.com last week the situation remains “tense and tenuous,” and said the church now has security officers on hand for all regular services.

“It is a deep sorrow to live this way in the ‘new America,’” he said.

A guy with a bullhorn.  Words.  Scary I suppose for you.  It is a good thing Muslims are never treated like this in the US...

Quote

A dozen brave souls armed with nothing but an American flag, a Ted Cruz sign, and many large guns gathered outside a mosque in Irving, Texas, on Saturday to protest an illegal Sharia court that does not exist.

http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2015/11/armed-protesters-gather-outside-mosque-in-irving.html

I invited them to, but it was never compulsory. They usually cheerfully accepted, except for the few occasions where my son chose to lie on the floor instead.

What Muslims are doing in our churches: Thousands of raids every year



Libero Quotidiano
August 31, 2016

There have also been recent cases (mainly reported in local newspapers but occasionally even in national newspapers) of Muslims going into churches, shouting, cursing and smashing sacred objects.

However this alarm is not limited only to Italy.

As an article in ‘Venerdi’ of Repubblica reports, also Spain, France, Belgium and Germany are targets.  Some alarming news comes precisely from one of the German ‘lands’,  North Rhine - Westphalia, where over the past three years 3,504 raids of desecration have been recorded.

These consist of acts such as: the spitting on sacred images, defecating on the altars, urinating in the holy water fount, desecrating the Eucharist, insulting the faithful and the  burning and shattering of sacred images and bookstands.

Bishops in Catholic countries with a strong Muslim immigrant presence, had to order their parish priests to hide the Consecrated Hosts to prevent at least the Blessed Sacrament from being desecrated.

Surakarta, Islamic radicals disrupt the celebration of Mass


Mathias Hariyadi
09/07/2016

Jakarta (AsiaNews) - Islamic extremists have forced the parish priest of St. Peter Purwosari, near Surakarta (Central Java), to suspend the Mass and to flee for his safety. Yesterday evening about 200 Christians had gathered to celebrate Mass in commemoration of the deceased. At one point, two Muslims, hidden in the crowd, interrupted the celebration threatening those present.

Celebrating Mass 1000 days after the death of a loved one is a tradition of Java Catholics, during which they commemorate their loved ones with a religious event that non-Catholics are also invited to attend. Usually the Mass is celebrated in the house of the family, but this time, given the great number of guests, the head of the village was asked for permission to use a public facility. The village chief, not a Catholic, had given approval and also sat among the faithful.

After the first reading of the Bible the two hecklers began to insult the priest and present. The police were able to remove them, but they came back with another group of people and continued to disturb the celebration.

One Catholic says: "Just after Communion they began to intimidate those present, including children, demanding that the Mass be interrupted. Eventually the priest, Fr. Adrianus Sulistiyono, was forced to flee along with his assistant".

It is not the first time a Christian celebration has been interrupted by force by Muslims in Indonesia, the most populous Muslim-majority country in the world. Inspired by the killing of Fr. Jacques Hamel in France, on August 28 last,  a 17 year old attempted to stab a priest in the parish of St. Joseph in Medan (North Sumatra). In October 2015, in Yogyakarta, some radical Islamists blocked the recitation of a rosary.

The Islamic religious Wedi Klaten Kiai Hajj Susilo said that Muslim radicals also interrupt commemorations of the deceased made by Muslims, because they consider it heretical.

ALLAH'S STABBING EPIDEMIC SPREADS TO U.S. MALL
8 injured by assailant who first asked if victims were Muslim

September 18, 2016

The Cross Roads Mall in St. Cloud, Minnesota, was shut down Sunday when an assailant made reference to Allah while stabbing four shoppers before being shot dead by an off-duty policeman.

Police said the suspect, armed with a knife, entered the mall about 8 p.m. Saturday.

“That individual made some references to Allah and we confirmed that he asked at least one person if they were Muslim before assaulting them,” said St. Cloud Police Chief Blair Anderson.

According to authorities, the suspect was later shot by an off-duty police officer from another jurisdiction. Investigators say the suspect was carrying at least one knife.

Of the eight victims, one was admitted to the hospital. Investigators say the injuries were not life threatening.

Police believe the suspect acted alone. Authorities say the suspect was wearing a private security uniform at the time of the attack. They say they had contact with the suspect in the past, but all of those cases were for minor traffic violations.

“It has hit home for us,” said Anderson. “But I want everybody in St. Cloud to know that we will be diligent and we will get to the bottom of this.”

What’s being called the “Knife Jihad” has been afflicting Europe and elsewhere this summer – a spree of seemingly random stabbings perpetrated by Muslim assailants attacking non-Muslims.

Below is a list of similar mostly stabbing attacks in the last three months:

Aug. 30: A female police officer in Toulouse, France, was slashed in the throat outside a police station. It was immediately dismissed by authorities as being carried out by a “mentally sick” man. The suspect, a native of Algeria, tried to grab the officer’s weapon and when the attempt failed, he took a knife and slashed her throat. That attack came three days after a 26-year-old man was been detained after stabbing a picnicking couple in western Germany. The victims said he was shouting “Allahu Akbar!” as he stabbed them. Oberhausen police say the suspect was overpowered by one of his victims, a 57-year-old man who was seriously injured in the attack. The other victim, a 66-year-old woman, suffered life-threatening injuries.

Aug. 24: In Cairo, Egypt, the state news agency says a knife-wielding attacker was shot and killed after he stabbed a guard at a Coptic church. The attack happened early Wednesday at the Virgin Mary church in Cairo’s western suburb of Nozha. The report says other church guards at the scene killed the assailant, “whose identity and motives were unclear.” Attacks on Coptic churches in Egypt have stepped up over the past years, especially after Coptic Christians sided with the Egyptian army in the military’s 2013 ouster of the Muslim Brotherhood-backed President Mohammed Morsi.

Aug. 22: Police shot and wounded a woman in Brussels after she spread panic by stabbing bus passengers, injuring two seriously and a third lightly, the city’s public prosecutor’s office confirmed. The incident had nothing to do with terrorism, according to Belgium authorities, who blamed it on mental illness. They did not release the woman’s name, saying only that she was “Asian” and shouted something unintelligible as she hacked the commuters.

Aug. 20: At an apartment community in Roanoke, Virginia, 20-year-old Wasil Farooqui grabbed a butcher knife and went on a stabbing spree, seriously injuring two, while repeatedly yelling, “Allahu Akbar!” He told police he heard voices telling him to stab people.

Aug. 19: In Strasbourg, France, an Orthodox Jewish rabbi was attacked near his home in broad daylight and left hospitalized by a knife-wielding Muslim yelling, “Allahu Akbar!” The incident was immediately scrubbed by French police as “not terrorism related” in what has become a pattern across Europe, Canada and the United States.

Aug. 13: In Jeman, north-central Nigeria, at least seven were slaughtered in a Christian village by Fulani Muslim herdsman using machetes and guns. “The Christians were killed in their homes,” Golkofa resident Sunday Saleh told Morning Star News. “Some of the victims were shot while others were cut with machetes.”

Aug. 13: A man killed a female passenger and injured at least five others in a horrific knife and fire attack on a Swiss train. They set the train ablaze with a flammable liquid and could not be questioned before he died. Authorities said the man was born in a neighboring region but did not release the man’s name or his ethnic or religious background.

Aug. 13-14: Two people were killed and six wounded in a machete attack in an eastern region of Democratic Republic of Congo where Islamic rebels have been blamed for a series of civilian massacres against Christians. The Allied Democratic Forces or ADF, an Islamist armed group of Ugandan origin, is accused of carrying out the brutal slayings.

Aug. 6: A man with a knife and shouting “Allahu Akbar!” launched himself at two policewomen in the Belgian city of Charleroi. The perpetrator, who inflicted serious facial wounds upon one of his targets, was then fatally shot.

Aug. 3: In London, a Muslim man stabbed to death the wife of an American professor on the busy Russell Square, injuring five others. The perpetrator was an 18-year-old Muslim man of Somali origin who had been resettled in Norway but, again, British authorities said they had “no evidence of radicalization” and attributed the attack to mental illness.

Aug. 2: In Gada Biyu, Nigeria, nine Christian villagers were cut down by Muslim terrorists who also burned three churches.

Aug. 1: About noon in Ninte, Nigeria, two Christian women were hacked to death by Muslim herdsman. “They cut them with machetes. A woman and her daughter in-law were killed by the Fulani herdsmen while the man is still in the hospital as I talk with you,” an eyewitness told Morning Star News.

July 26: Two ISIS terrorists entered a Catholic church in the northern French province of Normandy while a mass was in progress. They forced the elderly priest to his knees on the altar and slit his throat, filming the entire attack. A nun was also left fighting for her life, and more would have been killed if one nun had not escaped the church and called police, who arrived and shot the attackers dead.

July 19: In Wuerzburg, Germany, it was reported that a 17-year-old Afghan refugee attacked people on a train with an ax and knife, injuring nearly 20 passengers, four seriously. The Afghan boy fled the train but was chased and shot dead by police. The Muslim teen’s motive was “not yet clear,” the BBC reported.

July 18: In central Egypt a Muslim mob attacked a group of Coptic priests and their families with knives and batons, killing one and wounding several others. The attack came months after an armed Muslim mob stripped an elderly Christian woman and paraded her naked on the streets while looting and torching seven Christian homes in the same area, security officials said.

July 15: In Nice, France, a man planned to hack to death mourners as they were praying at a memorial service for the 84 victims of a jihadist named Mohamed L. Bouhlel, a French Tunisian immigrant who drove a truck through a crowded promenade on Bastille Day. The perpetrator, a Muslim, was caught by cops carrying a “huge blade” as he approached the crowded prayer vigil. Cops are said to have pounced on the man who one witness reported was carrying a “machete.”

July 9: A female pastor was hacked to death close to Nigeria’s capital, Abuja. Police arrested six suspects believed to be Muslim.

June 30: In the town of Obi, in the central Nigerian state of Nasarawa, a father of seven, Rev. Joseph Kurah, was ambushed by two armed men after he arrived at his farm. His severely mutilated body, hacked to death, was later recovered from the scene. Fulani Muslim herdsmen are suspected in the killing, according to WorldWatch Monitor.

June 30: In Israel, a 17-year-old Palestinian stabbed and killed Hallel Yaffa Ariel while she was sleeping in her bedroom in the West Bank settlement of Kiryat Arba. The assailant was fatally shot by security guards. That same day, a Palestinian assailant stabbed two Israeli civilians in Natanya, north of Tel Aviv and was shot dead by an armed civilian.

June 16: A “radicalized” 22-year-old Islamist was arrested by police in southwestern France with a knife and machete in his possession. He planned to attack “English and American tourists, then security forces,” according to French reports.

June 13: A police officer and his wife were killed inside their home in what police called an ISIS-inspired knife attack near Paris, the Independent reported.

149 Dead So Far In Ramadan Attacks


SAAGAR ENJETI
06/03/2017

Significant terrorist attacks have sprung up across the globe since the beginning of Muslim holy month of Ramadan May 26, with current counts confirming three attacks and 149 dead, and a reported Saturday incident on London Bridge still developing.

Islamist terrorist groups usually use the holiday to mount more significant terrorist attacks, and promise their followers extra benefits for dying in such attacks during the holy month.

The major attacks of Ramadan 2017 include twin suicide bombings in Baghdad and a massive suicide borne vehicle bomb in Afghanistan. An unconfirmed terrorist incident also occurred at a casino hotel in Manila earlier this week. These attacks occurred before a reported deadly incident on London Bridge Saturday.

The Baghdad bombings targeted both an ice cream shop and elderly pension distribution center. The ice cream shop was frequented by families with small children and killed 10. The first bombing killed 12, and nearly 100 were injured between the two blasts.

The second bombing in Afghanistan killed nearly 100 people and injured hundreds more. The massive suicide vehicle struck one of the safest areas of Kabul in Afghanistan and destroyed parts of the German embassy. Several German and U.S. citizens were killed in the attack. Afghan officials believe that Taliban elements headed by the Haqqani network are responsible for the attack.

A gunman also stormed a casino hotel resort in Manila Friday and set fire to a hotel while attempting to steal nearly $2 million in gaming chips. He engaged casino workers in a firefight and then appears to have killed himself. ISIS  claimed responsibility for the attack, which killed nearly 40 people. All casualties in the attack were caused by smoke inhalation by fire.

'IT'S IN THE QURAN,' SAYS MUSLIM WHO BEHEADED OKLAHOMA CO-WORKER

'You know all I was doing was ... what I was supposed to do'

09/26/2017
LEO HOHMANN



Alton Nolen beheaded a female co-worker in Oklahoma in September 2014 and tried to
behead a second co-worker before being shot by a supervisor. His murder trial this week
has attracted almost no national media coverage. Photo/Facebook


Was Alton Nolen mentally ill when he beheaded a female co-worker and tried to behead a second woman at a food plant in Oklahoma on Sept. 25, 2014, or was he simply being a good Muslim by following the dictates of the Quran?

That’s the issue the jury will have to decide in the 33-year-old Muslim convert’s trial, which opened last week and continued Monday in Norman, Oklahoma.

Nolen told police in 2014 he beheaded his co-worker, Colleen Hufford, and tried to behead another woman at the plant because he felt “oppressed” as a Muslim.

“You know all I was doing was … what I was supposed to do as a Muslim,” Nolen said. “It’s in the Quran.”

There were reports at after the incident that Nolen had tried to convert several of his co-workers to Islam and they were not receptive, which may have fueled his rage.

Nolen’s court-appointed attorneys are now asking the jury to find him not guilty by reason of insanity. They argued he is mentally ill and believed what he was doing was right because of “delusional misinterpretations of Islamic teachings,” according to the Oklahoman, a local newspaper covering the trial.

An expert witness took the stand Monday on behalf of the defense and told the jury that the Quran contains no instructions for Muslims kill unbelievers by beheading unless it is a time of war.

“It does not exist,” said Robert Hunt, a professor at Southern Methodist University who calls himself an expert on Islamic beliefs.

For Nolen to believe otherwise makes him insane, according to the defense.

Others would argue that Nolen is perfectly sane because he was doing exactly as the Quran instructs – no delusions required.

In fact, the district attorney argued just that on Monday, pressing the “expert” professor on whether he thought ISIS fighters were insane when they beheaded men and boys. Or what about Boko Haram in Nigeria, or al-Shabab in Somalia? Are they all insane?

The SMU professor responded saying Nolan’s beliefs about his Islamic faith are “novel.”

Philip Haney, a retired Homeland Security expert on Islamic doctrine and an Arabic speaker, told WND that Professor Hunt of Southern Methodist is clearly under his own delusion about the teachings of the Quran and was doing a disservice by trying to mislead the jury on what devout Muslims are taught in many mosques.

And Nolen is very devout. From his prison photo it is clear that he prays five times a day in the required prostrate position, which is evidenced by the Zabiba or small bruise on his forehead. This is the mark of a devout believer in Islam.

“The blindness of [the SMU professor] is astonishing. Mr. Nolen is not just randomly pulling these doctrines out of the air, this guy is a dedicated Muslim,” Haney said.

The FBI interviewers were seeking to determine if anyone had taught Nolen that beheading an “oppressor” is acceptable or may have guided him to those beliefs.

“Uh, no,” Nolen responded. “I read the Quran. Like I say, the Quran is easy to understand. … No one guides me but Allah.”

What Nolen appears to be referring to is Quran verse 2:191 about the “fitnah,” which is Arabic for an “oppression” or “persecution” brought on by an unbeliever, meaning a non-Muslim.

Sura 2:291 states:

“And slay them wherever ye catch them, and turn them out from where they have Turned you out; for tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter; but fight them not at the Sacred Mosque, unless they (first) fight you there; but if they fight you, slay them. Such is the reward of those who suppress faith.”

Nolen felt like certain co-workers were suppressing his faith, Haney said.

Nolen, who worked at the Vaughan Foods food-processing plant in Moore, Oklahoma, is accused of beheading Hufford, 54, and attempting to behead Traci Johnson, 43.

Johnson’s life was saved when Mark Vaughan, the chief operating officer of the company and a reserve sheriff’s deputy, shot and wounded Nolen as he repeatedly stabbed Johnson, according to testimony at the trial.

Nolen is charged with first-degree murder and assault and battery with a deadly weapon. He may also face federal charges if the Justice Department decides his attack was an act of terrorism.

Nolen was interviewed twice at the hospital while recovering from his gunshot wounds.

In the first interview, he admitted to the FBI that he regularly watched Islamic beheadings on YouTube, including those done by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

The attack brought national attention in 2014, but three years later no national media outlets seem to be giving the trial primetime coverage.

“Mainstream media is not doing their job,” Haney said. “They should be covering this trial and asking, ‘What do you mean by oppression? What is this concept and where is it in the Quran? What is the source of what he says he believes in … instead of these vague statements that he is oppressed? Where is the natural curiosity of the press? For the press, that’s like an atomic nitro glycerin. When a devout Muslim who is Shariah-compliant says he’s oppressed, you’re watching a ticking bomb. This guy is a convert. How on earth did he pick up that Quranic concept so quickly? He just swallowed it up like a sponge, this view that some other worldview is oppressing him. And then you have the Muslim community telling him he has the right to lash out like he did, to kill them, if they are oppressing you.”

Assigning the violence of Muslims to mental illness is the knee-jerk reaction of today’s media and most law enforcement, he said.

“That’s just another way to gloss over the truth,” Haney said. “People are going to scream about it and say that’s not true, so we’re going to miss these warning signals [from potential terrorists].”

Mali Church leader voices alarm as Islamists attack parishes

Jonathan Luxmoore
Friday, 6 Oct 2017
 
Militants told Christians they would be killed if they were seen in church

Catholic leaders in Mali have warned that parishes face a growing assault by Islamic militants despite attempts to enforce a peace deal in the north African country.

“Our churches and chapels are now being targeted by extremists, who’ve told Christians not to gather to pray,” said Mgr Edmond Dembele, secretary-general of the Malian bishops’ conference.

“The authorities are trying to reimpose control, and we may learn more about what kind of strategy is being followed,” he told Catholic News Service. “But we’re also alarmed the attacks are being mounted by isolated Islamist groups, acting in their own name.”

Tensions were running high in September and early October in Mali’s central Mopti region after several Catholic churches were ransacked and torched, forcing parishioners to flee.

Mgr Dembele said it was unclear which groups were involved and what their motives were.

“We have no security programme of our own and we rely on the authorities to provide protection and find solutions,” Mgr Dembele said.

“On previous occasions, the government has deployed military units in our parishes. But this still hasn’t been done against these new attacks.”

The attacks occurred as the Malian government is attempting to implement the 2015 peace deal with rebel fighters. The agreement called for the rebels to be integrated into the national arm.

Under a 2015 peace deal with the government of President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita, rebel fighters are to be integrated into the national army.

However, attacks by Touareg separatists and Islamist insurgents have continued, delaying the return of displaced Malians from neighbouring Niger, Mauritania and Burkina Faso. Rights groups have reported summary executions and the destruction of schools and forced recruitment of child soldiers.

Mgr Dembele said armed men had smashed their way into a church at Dobara, 500 miles north of the capital Bamako, in late September, throwing out crosses, altar furnishings and a statue of Mary, which they burned outside. Assailants also drove Catholics out of a church at Bodwal, warning they would be killed if “seen praying in the church,” he said.

Local parishioners were currently “very afraid but not panicking,” the priest said, as they “urgently awaited” help from government and UN forces seeking to restore order.

“Christians aren’t the only ones threatened and attacked. Mali’s whole population is being victimised, Muslims included,” Mgr Dembele said.

The Church official also said he and others remained confident the peace deal would succeed.

“We know there’s been some prevarication,” he said, “and while this isn’t necessarily the fault of the state or any particular group, it’s made the situation more difficult.”

Coptic Orthodox Bishop Killed outside Cairo, Egypt

Like many accused Muslims, suspect is said to be mentally ill.

CAIRO (Morning Star News) – A Coptic Orthodox bishop from Upper Egypt was slain outside Cairo, Egypt yesterday.

The assailant struck Bishop Samaan Shehata in the head, neck and torso with a machete in the El Salam area near El Marg District on the outskirts of Cairo, according to local reports. Shehata was born in 1972.

While a security spokesman said the suspect, Ahmed Saeed Ibrahim, was mentally ill, neighbors reportedly denied this, saying he was a Muslim who had been “radicalized” a year ago. Since then, they said, Ibrahim had begun praying in the street, shouting loudly and calling Christians infidels.

The suspect walked calmly out of the warehouse after killing Shehata, according to security camera footage. Captured by people on the street and now in custody, Ibrahim had reportedly approached Shehata wielding the large knife while the bishop was waiting for another clergyman in his car.

Visiting from his Church of St. Julius Akfazi in Ezbet Girgis village, in Beni Suef Governorate, Shehata was waiting for another priest, the Rev. Beimen Moftah, when Ibrahim accosted him and attacked him, eyewitnesses told local press. Reports conflicted on whether Moftah, of the Church of the Arch Angel Malak in Ezbet Francis, Mattay village, was injured, but he did reportedly confront the assailant.

Stabbed in the neck and torso near the Virgin and Bishop Shenouda El Daeiry church, the wounded Shehata fled on foot into the warehouse, according to security camera footage obtained by El Youm el Sabe News agency, which shows the assailant following with the machete.

Police said eyewitnesses reported that the assailant had seen Shehata in his car, forcibly stopped him, ordered him out and then started to stab him in the neck and torso. Shehata fled, and the attacker followed him into the warehouse and finished his attack there with several blows to the head, they said.

Shehata’s driver, identified as Gerges Kamel, reportedly said the bishop had gotten out of the car to retrieve his cell phone at the warehouse when the assailant stopped him and stabbed him in the side, neck and skull. Kamel said the assailant used the bishop’s blood to form a cross on his forehead, according to a local newspaper.

An ambulance didn’t arrive until 90 minutes after the assault, according to Kamel, who added that the bishop was alive for half an hour after being struck and could have been saved if the ambulance had arrived timely.

He denied that the suspect was mentally ill.

Local press reported that the suspect was 19 years old and had joined a Salafi jihadist group three months prior. After his arrest, Ibrahim reportedly claimed that he was mentally ill and suffered from epileptic seizures. A piece of paper was reportedly found in his pocket saying, “the mission is done successfully.”

A preliminary autopsy reportedly showed the cause of death to be blows to the head with a long knife (machete), causing a longitudinal deep crack in the skull and internal bleeding in the abdomen.

Area residents said on social media that the suspect was known for insulting numerous Christians, picking fights with them and assaulting them. Christians made several complaints to police, which were largely ignored, according to local reports.

Shehata had reportedly worked for years to obtain a permit to construct a church building for his parishioners, who otherwise met in a small room of an association building, with most of the worshippers standing in the street. Recently the bishop found a 1,000-square-meter site on which to build, and he was reportedly in Cairo to collect donations for the building. Local press reported that residents had filed 18 police statements objecting to his church building plans.

Sheikh Abbas Shooman, dean of preeminent Islamic authority Al-Azhar University in Cairo, denounced the attack on Shehata, writing on Facebook, “An assault that religions reject…the treacherous attack on bishop Samaan Shehata, priest of the Church of St. Julius Akfazi in the village of Ezbet Girgis in the province of Beni Sueif, an attack rejected by the law of heaven and above all our religion.”

Ordained a priest in 1999 and promoted to bishop in 2001, Shehata served at Church of St. Julius Akfazi. According to the Coptic Orthodox Church Network, St. Julius of Agfahs (Akfazi), who lived in the late third and early fourth centuries, was martyred after writing a biography of church martyrs.

Another Priest Attacked

Another priest, whom local press identified as the Rev. Mikhail Melad Tawadrous, 67, of the Arch Angel Michael in Qoft, Qena Governorate, was seriously injured on the same day.

A Muslim vegetable vendor reportedly attacked Tawadrous with heavy objects, leaving him with cuts on his hand, bruises on his chest and blood in his lungs. When the priest called out for help, bystanders reportedly encouraged the suspect, Saad Mohamed Mahmoud Hassan, to kill him.

Hassan had been jailed 12 for years before, and a few days before the attack, he had insulted another priest. Authorities reportedly tried to persuade Tawadrous to drop charges, claiming that the attacker is mentally ill, and the priest refused. Hassan was held for questioning and released.

Egypt is ranked 21st on Christian support organization Open Doors’ 2017 World Watch List of the countries where is it is most difficult to be a Christian.

ISIS Depicts Beheaded Pope Francis, Vows ‘Christmas Blood,’ Attack on Vatican

Pamela Geller
November 18, 2017



Christmas blood — it’s an Islamic tradition. Respect it, islamophobes!

Days after depicting a vehicular attack on the Vatican, a pro-Islamic State (IS) media group published a poster threatening “Worshipers [sic] of the Cross” and depicting a beheaded Pope Francis. (SITE Intel)

Pope Francis is the most pro-Islamic, subdued Pope in modern history. Further proof that submission and accommodation to Islam is perceived as weakness and gives way to more demands, more conquest, more attacks in the cause of Islam.
