Islamic terrorists attack Muhammad cartoons in Texas

A free speech group sponsored an exhibit of cartoons depicting the prophet Muhammad in Garland, Texas, a suburb of Dallas.  Predictably, this drew the ire of Muslims, for whom any depiction of their prophet is blasphemous.  So two terrorists attacked the exhibit with gunfire, but were killed by police officers.  The question is, were these homegrown terrorists, or is there an al-Qaeda or ISIS connection?

UPDATE:  ISIS is claiming responsibility.

Admit to be a Christian and be killed

At last count, 147 Kenyan university students were killed by al-Qaeda-linked Islamic terrorists.  Most of them were killed because they were Christians.  I wondered how the terrorists could tell.  I heard that they asked if potential victims could recite a Muslim prayer and that they could tell by their dress.  Christian women would not be wearing veils or scarfs, so were fair game.  But I found a report that suggested that the terrorists basically just asked people.  “Are you a Christian or a Muslim?”  Those who said they were Muslims were spared.  But those who said they were Christians were shot.  Notice that they confessed their faith even though it meant their death!

Boko Haram joins ISIS

There are two organizations of people in the news today whose level of evil staggers the imagination.  ISIS in Syria and Iraq is known for its beheadings, crucifixions, and massacres of the innocent.  Boko Haram in Nigeria is known for kidnapping Christian school girls and using them for sex slaves, as well as for its massacres of the innocent.  Now these two groups have joined forces.

Boko Haram has sworn allegiance to ISIS and the Caliphate that it is proclaiming.  This gives ISIS an inroad into Africa, making it more of a universal Caliphate.  And it gives Boko Haram a greater status as part of that Caliphate. [Read more...]

ISIS abducts 150 Assyrian Christians

The Assyrian Church, which is neither Catholic nor Eastern Orthodox, traces its history to the first century, all the way to the Apostles Thomas, Thaddeus, and Bartholomew.  Now, these Syrian Christians, as in those early days, are experiencing brutal persecution and martyrdom.

ISIS has rounded up 150 Assyrian Christians from Syrian villages.  Their fate is unknown at this time.   We should pray for them.   Are you seeing much outrage at what the jihadists are doing to Christians, either from the world at large or even from Western Christians? [Read more...]
