When some offbeat pastor in Florida said he was holding a BURN THE KORAN DAY it made INTERNATIONAL NEWS and even OBONGO and his cronies hit the airwaves to DENOUNCE the blah de blah be tolerant about mudslimes, blah blah. NOW do you hear a single thing about this???? Where is President OBONGO now with his condemnation !!!
I SEARCHED AND SEARCHED and found NOT ONE SINGLE ARTICLE in regular news about this. ONLY in Christian organizations or anti-islamic blogs.
SAED Musa / AFGHANISTAN / convert to CHRISTIANITY / arrested as an apostate after a television broadcast of confirmation or baptism of some christians, after which an ANTI-CHRISTIAN FRENZY began and 25 people were arrested.
SADLY this is an every day occurrence under Islam, and yet the WORLD REMAINS SILENT. STRANGELY when homosexuals are persecuted in IRAN, international headlines are made. BUT WHEN CHRISTIANS ARE TORTURED, ABUSED, ARRESTED, EXECUTED, MURDERED FOR SIMPLY THEIR FAITH, WE HEAR NOTHING!!!
Said Musa (45), a father of six, was arrested in late May 2010 as part of a crackdown against Afghan converts to Christianity. Observers say he is likely to be charged with apostasy from Islam – a crime that is punished by death under Islamic law. Some leading political figures in Afghanistan called earlier this year for the execution of converts. (and we are trying to win the ‘hearts and minds’ of these troglydites in our war on terror?)
This man is not only beaten, tortured, humiliated in prison every day he has also been raped.
Mr. Musa has six children, was an Afghani soldier, is an amputee, and worked for the Red Cross helping other amputees. The National Review report includes the following:
“Nobody [wanted to be my] defender before the court. When I said ‘I am a Christian man,’ he [a potential lawyer] immediately spat on me and abused me and mocked me. . . . I am alone between 400 [people with] terrible values in the jail, like a sheep.” He has been beaten, mocked, and subjected to sleep deprivation and sexual abuse while in prison. No Afghan lawyer will defend him and authorities denied him access to a foreign lawyer. Any and every human being who is imprisoned, abused, or tortured for the free and peaceful expression of their faith deserves our support, but Musa is also a remarkable person and Christian. In a letter smuggled to the West, he says, “The authority and prisoners in jail did many bad behaviour with me about my faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. For example, they did sexual things with me, beat me by wood, by hands, by legs, put some things on my head.”
He added a thing much more important to him, that they “mocked me ‘he’s Jesus Christ,’ spat on me, nobody let me for sleep night and day. . . . Please, please, for the sake of Lord Jesus Christ help me.”
HERE IS HIS HEART RENDING LETTER IN FULL, which was passed to a western supporter who visited him in prison.
“To the international church of world and to the President Brother Barak Obama President of the United States and to the head of ISAF (International Security Assistance Force) in Afghanistan!
“My name is Said Musa 45 years old. I have been working since 15 years as a Physiotherapist in I-C-R-C (International Committee of the Red Cross) orthopaedic centre in Kabul, Afghanistan. About four and a half months before by security force of Afghanistan I (was) captured, due to faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, Saviour of the world. One person (____) he is spy of (____) [a] leader in Afghanistan. He told about me (to) the Government’s officials, ‘He’s believer, He’s head of church in (____)’. He showed my house to the security force. Since that time I am in jail. The authority and prisoners in jail did many bad behaviour with me about my faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. For example, they did sexual things with me, beat me by wood, by hands, by legs, put some things on my head, mocked me ‘He’s Jesus Christ’, spat on me, nobody let me for sleep night and day. Every person spat on me and beat me. Also the prosecutor wrote something wrong against me. He told from himself something wrong against me on my file.
“He is stimulating every day the prisoners against me, ‘He is also in jail due to spy for Iran country’, to reveal the church in Kabul. I’m in a very and very bad condition in the jail.
“I agree with long imprisonment about my faith even for long life. Because I’m the sinnest person in the world. Because sometimes they treated for died I refuse my faith due to died. Sometimes I tolerate the persecution but immediately I acknowledge my sin before Lord Jesus Christ: ‘Don’t refuse me before your holy angels and before your Father.’ Because I am very very weak and sinful man.
“Nobody could accept my defender before the court. If I say I am a Christian man he immediately spat on me and abuse me and mock me! I am alone between 400 handlers of terrible values in the jail like a sheep. Please, please, for the sake of Lord Jesus Christ help me. Please send a person who should supervise my document and my file, what I said in it. My prosecutor has told something wrong to the judge because he asked for money but I refused his request. Please, please you should transfer me from this jail to a jail that supervises the believers. I also agree with died on cross of my pride. I also agree with the sacrifice of my life in public, I will tell the faith in Lord Jesus Christ son of God and other believers will take courage and be strong in their faith. Hundred percent I am stable to my word. I have family of seven – one wife, three daughters and three sons. My big son [is] about eight years old. One of my daughters can’t speak, she has some mental problems.
“This is a request from me to all over the world, people please help me. I could not have any person to help. For the sake of Lord Jesus Christ please pray and immediately help me and rescue me from this jail. Otherwise, they will kill me, because I know they’re very very very cruel and hard hearted!
“Your destitute brother in the world.
“Please my English writing is not enough good. If I did some mistake please forgive me! From Kabul Provincial jail.”
International Christian Concern (ICC) reports that Musa was released from prison last week. “The call came on February 21 from an official from the U.S. Embassy in Kabul confirming that Said Musa was released and safely out of the country,” ICC reports. Compass Direct has confirmed Musa’s release.
Ironically, the killings at the church in IRAQ and COPT church in Egypt helped obtain his release, upon which he was immediately swept out of the country. I have not been able to find any information on where his family or 6 children are. One of whom is handicapped.
My point is, this is an ongoing every situation for our christian brothers and sisters in places like AFGHANISTAN, PAKISTAN, NIGERIA, SOMALIA, IRAQ, IRAN, INDONESIA, TURKEY, EGYPT, PALESTINE, ETHIOPIA, SUDAN, AND MORE.
RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION IS CONDEMNED AND PRESSURE EXTENDED TO COUNTRIES WHO FACILITATE IT, EXCEPT AND UNLESS THE PERSECUTED ARE CHRISTIANS !!
