Despite beheadings and kidnappings some Christians escape ISIS

Posted in ISIS with tags , , on February 25, 2015 by saynsumthn

Sadly, according to the Daily Beast, ISIS forces have kidnapped at least 90 Christians from Syrian villages, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. The abductions took place in a rural village near the town of Tel Tamr in the northeastern part of the country, the monitoring group said. ISIS reportedly seized the Assyrian Christians as they retreated during a Kurdish offensive. ISIS has targeted Christian communities many times during its gruesome reign of terror. Just a few days ago, ISIS released a video that appeared to show the beheading of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians.

Globe footage captures shoot out in Canadian Parliament building

Footage from the Toronto Globe and Mail show a hail of bullets being fired inside the Canadian parliament building

According to the BBC, a series of shootings have taken place in and around Canada’s parliament, leaving one soldier wounded.

It is unclear how many gunmen there are but one shooter is believed dead.

An assailant fired at the National War Memorial and then ran into parliament nearby, continuing the attack. More shots were fired at a shopping mall.

The incident came hours after Canada raised its terror threat level following a fatal hit-and-run attack on two soldiers on Monday.

The latest incident began when soldiers guarding the memorial came under fire on Wednesday morning.

“Shots fired at War Memorial at 9:52am today; one person injured,” Ottawa Police tweeted.

ISLAMIC RADICALIZED SUSPECT

A man shot to death after running down and killing a Canadian soldier with his car was “radicalized” and classified as a “potential important threat” to the country, Canadian authorities said Tuesday at a press conference.

Police arrested Martin Rouleau Couture, who reportedly converted to Islam about a year ago, last July and confiscated his passport, but lacked enough evidence to keep him in custody, said Martine Fontaine of the RCMP.

“When he was arrested, he was about to go to Turkey,” Fontaine said. “We stopped him as he was about to leave Canada for terrorist actions. He was questioned when he was arrested. We have not been able to determine any real threat at this time.”

On Monday, a man driving a car hit two members of the Canadian Armed Forces who were walking in a strip mall parking lot in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, said David Falls, spokesman for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.. Read more !

ISIS Sympathizer

CBC news reports that as Public Safety Minister Steve Blaney asserted at a morning news conference, Couture-Rouleau, who waited in a parking lot for at least two hours before driving his car into two Canadian soldiers, was “clearly linked to terrorist ideology.”

The RCMP revealed that officials had been monitoring Couture-Rouleau closely, concerned that “he had become radicalized.” On Tuesday, RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson confirmed that Couture-Rouleau’s passport had been seized and that he was one of the 90 suspected extremists who the RCMP believed intended to join militants fighting abroad.

CBC News spoke with Faisal, a Facebook friend of Couture-Rouleau’s in Saudi Arabia, who described Couture-Rouleau as a “really kind person.”

He said he befriended Couture-Rouleau on Facebook and began messaging him in June.

“I was actually looking over some posts on Facebook … and I saw all these people, they were for some reason dissing Islam, making fun of us, so I saw him actually replying in a really calm, modest, humble way,” Faisal told CBC News.

But Faisal added that this was before he found out Couture-Rouleau was a supporter of ISIS.

Faisal, who spoke on the condition CBC News not publish his last name, said he changed the topic of conversation in the few instances Couture-Rouleau mentioned ISIS to him.

ISIS Massacre Survivor Speaks Out

Posted in ISIS, Islam with tags , , on September 12, 2014 by saynsumthn

Ali Hussein Kadhim, 23, a Shiite-background Iraqi soldier, was captured with about 1,700 other soldiers by ISIS fighters on June 12th and taken to the grounds of one of Saddam Hussein’s former palaces near Tikrit, according to a story in the New York Times.

The New York Times verified his dramatic story using witness accounts, a Human Rights Watch report and videos of the massacre.

When Ali and the other recruits heard ISIS was nearby, they panicked. “Our morale was very low,” he concedes. The American-trained army officers fled as they had in Mosul, Ali reports. “The recruits tried to flee, but it was too late.”

The Islamic group, ISIS or ISIL has slaughtered Christians and other religious minorities in the region. ISIS has taken captive women and children and sold them as sex slaves. As a result, many Christians have been forced to flee the area.

Now, Christians in America are calling for an end to this genocide.

In fact, Dallas area Pastors, churches, and concerned citizens in North Texas are coming together to show support for these Christian brothers and sisters under extreme persecution in Iraq.

Believers and concerned citizens are joining to bring attention to the genocide faced by Iraqi Christians.

The rally will take place at:
Dallas City Hall
1500 Marilla Street Dallas, TX
September 14, 2014 at 4:30pm

WHAT TO WEAR AT THE RALLY:

WEAreN

The Islamic State in Iraq is painting an Arabic “N”–for Nazarene–on the homes of Christians.

In a show of solidarity, Christians all across the world are adapting that letter, using it as a social media avatar or a logo.

Attendees are encouraged to print off the #WeAreN (red and white) image off the Facebook page and either wear it or carry it. In addition, those attending the rally can carry a red cross.

A press conference will be held days prior to this rally and will include dignitaries and local pastors.

The Press Release reads, in part:

The deliberate targeting and persecution of Christians by ISIS in Iraq, as well as the blatant attacks on Christian communities throughout the Middle East has caused great concern and offense within the Christian communities of Dallas, Fort Worth and surrounding counties. In Iraq, many Christians are fleeing their homes and cities to escape the brutal jihad against Christians at the hands of ISIS. Many are now refugees in need of humanitarian aid. As confirmed by the Center for the Study of Global Christianity and the Vatican, 100,000 Christians are murdered every year because of their faith. Open Doors Ministry has stated that 9 out of 10 countries cited for the worst atrocities against Christians are Muslim.

Iraqi born Pastor Jalil Dawood of the Arabic Church of Dallas and Pastor Stephen Broden of the Fair Park Bible Fellowship will be featured speakers at the rally.

In addition, other notable speakers and pastors will be present.
