The West Must Say “Je Suis Asia Bibi”

From Gatestone Institute
By Giulio Meotti | May 19, 2016 at 4:30 am

  • “I will not convert. I believe in my religion and Jesus Christ. And why should I be the one to convert and not you?” — Asia Bibi.
  • It is the West’s indolence and cupidity that has condemned Asia Bibi to death. No one in Europe has filled the streets to ask for the liberation of this courageous woman, or even to protest Pakistan’s anti-Christian laws.
  • Even Pope Francis stood silent. The emblem of his reticence is the 12 seconds of face-to-face time the Pope had with Bibi’s husband and her daughter in St. Peter’s Square. Francis barely touched the two. His predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI, publicly called many times for her release.
  • The mainline Protestant churches of America, too busy demonizing Israel, also stood silent. Meanwhile, Christianity is being erased from its own cradle.

The death sentence for Asia Bibi is like Chernobyl’s nuclear cloud: it contaminates everything around it. After Asia’s arrest, her husband, Masih, and her children went into hiding. They have moved house 15 times in five years. They could not even attend Asia’s judicial hearings. It is too dangerous for them. Her husband was forced to quit his job.

Asia’s “crime” was to use the same water glass as her Muslim co-workers. She was sentenced to death because she is Christian and she was thirsty. “You defiled our water,” the Muslim women told her. “Convert to Islam to redeem yourself from your filthy religion.”

Asia took a deep breath and replied: “I will not convert. I believe in my religion and Jesus Christ. And why should I be the one to convert and not you?”

On November 8, 2010, after just five minutes of deliberation, Asia Noreen Bibi, under Article 295 of the Pakistani Code, was sentenced to death by hanging. The crowd cheered the verdict. She was alone and burst into tears. Next to her there were two policemen, visibly satisfied. In the days after, 50,000 people in Karachi and 40,000 in Lahore took the streets to brandish an image of Asia Bibi with the rope around her neck. They say they will not rest until she is hanged or shot.

Pope Francis’ Jihad on Christianity

From FrontPage Magazine
May 20, 2016 | Raymond Ibrahim

Disturbing pronouncements on the faith from the Vicar of Christ.

thumbrns-pope-isaiah022416
 
The man known as the “Catholic Pope” and the “Vicar of Christ”—but who in light of what follows is probably best referred to by his real name, Jorge Mario Bergoglio—recently gave an interview demonstrating why “so many people think he is the anti-Christ.”

The more salient features follow:

Christ as Warmonger

In classic relativistic fashion, Jorge claims that:

It is true that the idea of conquest is inherent in the soul of Islam. However, it is also possible to interpret the objective in Matthew’s Gospel, where Jesus sends his disciples to all nations, in terms of the same idea of conquest.

Only someone who is either very ignorant or hostile to Christianity can make such a claim.  To state the obvious: Yes, both Christianity and Islam seek to win converts.  However, Jesus’ call to his disciples to “go forth and make disciples of all nations” in Matthew’s Gospel was understood and practiced peacefully.  Disciples preached, people converted.  No violence, no coercion.  In fact, it was Christians—chief among them disciples and evangelists—who were persecuted and killed simply for preaching Christ, first by the pagan Roman empire, later (and still) by Islam.

Conversely, Muhammad said, “I have been sent with the sword between my hands to ensure that no one but Allah is worshipped—Allah who put my livelihood under the shadow of my spear and who inflicts humiliation and scorn on those who disobey my commandments (The Al Qaeda Reader, p.12).”  The Koran is replete with commands to do violence on those who refuse to submit to Islam—and yes, in ways that far transcend comparison with Old Testament violence.

Unlike the spread of Christianity, Islam spread through the sword.  This is a simple, historic fact, acknowledged by more sober European leaders: the overwhelming majority of territory that today constitutes the “Muslim world” was seized from non-Muslims by great violence and bloodshed.  Two-thirds of Christendom—the Mideast and North Africa—was to be swallowed up by Islam a century after its founding.

The making of martyrs is the only similarity that Christianity and Islam share when it comes to how they spread: while Christians were martyred for their faith, Muslims martyred whoever refused their faith.

Dislike for “Christian Roots” of Europe (or Dislike for Truth)

According to Jorge,when I hear talk of the Christian roots of Europe, I sometimes dread the tone, which can seem triumphalist or even vengeful. It then takes on colonialist overtones.”

Expanded background checks for Americans but not Muslim refugees
Yet, President Obama wishes to make it harder for law-abiding Americans to obtain firearms for self-defense, extending background checks to private sales and calling on the medical profession to report patients to the background check system who may have had treatment for mental health issues, no matter how minor. At the same time, Obama is vowing to veto a bill in Congress – the American SAFE Act of 2015 – that would require enhanced background checks on Muslim refugees arriving in the U.S. from the jihadist hotbeds of Syria and Iraq.
