A POST TO THE BOOK BURNING OF IRAQ BY THE ISIS TERRORIST MUSLIMS

I imagine for most this is a boring subject but there are a number of studies and sites that are an excellent source of understanding and give the facts on the Islamic book burning that has been done by many Islamist aggressors in the words histories and their libraries. I am addressing this since many in the media do not, seeking to pretend and defend Islam as a safe and peaceful religion which it and its’ teachings are not. I put excerpts here but the source is seen here. http://learnerpeaceworld.info/131BURNINGLIBRARIES2.htm and the excerpts of the book burning in Iraq are here as well. ….. http://news.nationalpost.com/2015/01/31/isis-burning-books-at-iraq-libraries-and-loading-artifacts-onto-refrigerated-trucks-at-night-residents-say/

ISIS burning books at Iraq libraries and loading artifacts onto refrigerated trucks at night, residents say 

…and this has happened this week in Iraq February 2015…think about it…

National Post  …..Islamic State group militants invaded the Central Library of Mosul earlier this month, they were on a mission to destroy a familiar enemy: other people’s ideas.
Residents say the extremists smashed the locks that had protected the biggest repository of learning in the northern Iraq town, and loaded around 2,000 books — including children’s stories, poetry, philosophy and tomes on sports, health, culture and science — into six pickup trucks. They left only Islamic texts.
Since the Islamic State group seized a third of Iraq and neighbouring Syria, they have sought to purge society of everything that doesn’t conform to their violent interpretation of Islam. They already have destroyed many archaeological relics, deeming them pagan, and even Islamic sites considered idolatrous. Increasingly books are in the firing line……
A University of Mosul history professor, who spoke on condition he not be named because of his fear of the Islamic State group, said the extremists started wrecking the collections of other public libraries last month. He reported particularly heavy damage to the archives of a Sunni Muslim library, the library of the 265-year-old Latin Church and Monastery of the Dominican Fathers and the Mosul Museum Library with works dating back to 5000 BC……
Citing reports by the locals who live near these libraries, the professor added that the militants used to come during the night and carry the materials in refrigerated trucks with Syria-registered license plates. The fate of these old materials is still unknown, though the professor suggested some could be sold on the black market. In September, Iraqi and Syrian officials told the AP that the militants profited from the sale of ancient artifacts.
The professor said Islamic State group militants appeared determined to “change the face of this city … by erasing its iconic buildings and history.”
An Iraqi lawmaker, Hakim al-Zamili, said the Islamic State group “considers culture, civilization and science as their fierce enemies.”
Al-Zamili, who leads the parliament’s Security and Defence Committee, compared the Islamic State group to raiding medieval Mongols, who in 1258 ransacked Baghdad. Libraries’ ancient collections of works on history, medicine and astronomy were dumped into the Tigris River, purportedly turning the waters black from running ink.
“The only difference is that the Mongols threw the books in the Tigris River, while now Daesh is burning them,” he said, using an Arabic acronym for the Islamic State group. “Different method, but same mentality.”

What is below is but an excerpt of Mark Mulligan of a few of many peoples, religions and armies destroying the humans and libraries in their wake for world domination for their pitiful thoughts and ideas and as today this Mark Mulligan has written a massive composite of history of much evil that has gone on. I put his quote and his net address here. It is well done but it is difficult to read because like the children slaughtered by ISIS this week I have found it a weeping journey in my heart, living and sleeping.

Why do my daydreams torment me with similar images of a ‘planet of screams’: this desolate Earth? Can’t we do better than that?

The Persians sacked Damascus in 614 and Jerusalem in 615, then again in 619. Vyadhapura, Hindu Funan capital of the first Khmer kingdom, was taken over by the Chenla in the 7th century.

The list of towns Muslims captured with varying degrees of destruction includes but is not limited to Pella, Damascus, Homs and Emesa in 635; Palmyra, Petra and the six sophisticated desert cities of the Nabateans, wiped out in 636. The Muslims took Ctesiphon in 637. They finally destroyed Persia’s official state religion, Zoroastrianism.“Umar wrote [to the local Muslim commander who had requested permission to distribute these books to his troops as booty]: ‘Throw them into the water. If what they contain is right guidance, God has given us better guidance. If it is error, God has protected us against it.’” The Muqadimmah: An Introduction to History, Franz Rosenthal, translator, Bollingen Series, Princeton University Press, 1967, p. 373.

The list goes on. Cyrene and Tripoli, which the Muslims took in 643; rebellious Alexandria again in 645 (ending its manuscript exchange once-and-for-all); Cyprus in 649; Rhodes in 654; Kabul in 664, 708 and 1504; Bokhara in 674 and 710; Samarkhand (where Chinese craftsmen taught Muslims the art of paper-making) in 676 and 711; Carthage in 698; Gibraltar, Lisbon (burned) and Toledo in 711; Samarkhand again in 712; Khwarizm, Ferghana, Tashkent and Kashgar in 713; Multan in 715; Lisbon in 717; Narbonne in 719; Seville in 721 (where the Western Gothic King Isidor’s library was destroyed); Carcassonne and Nimes in 726; Bordeaux (burned down) in 732; Derbent in 733; Samarkhand, once and for all, in 737 or 738. The Franks took Narbonne back from the Muslims in 759. Palermo, Sicily fell to them in 831, independent Capua in 840, Bari in 841. It would prosper as a Muslim stronghold until 1062 when the Pisans sacked it, then 1072 when the Normans took it and rebuilt it as their Sicilian capital.

In 846, a Muslim army from Cordoba sacked Leon; another sacked Rome and burnt St. Peters. In 878, Muslims conquered Syracuse. In 985, Muslims burned Barcelona and then Leon in 988. In 976 al-Mansur, the new regent for the child Caliph of Cordoba

“… proceeded to the library of al-Hakam [his father, the ex-Caliph], caused all the writings therein contained to be brought forth in the presence of a number of theologians and ordered these latter to put on one side, with the exception of medical texts and treatises on arithmetic, all those books dealing with the sciences of the ancients: logic, astronomy and other sciences cultivated by the Greeks. When these had been separated from all the books relating to lexicography, grammar, poetry, history, medicine, jurisprudence, traditions, in short those sciences recognized by the Andalusians, Ibn Abi ‘Amir commanded that the works treating of the ancient sciences should be burned. Some were in fact committed to the flames; others were flung into the palace moats, or buried, or destroyed in some other manner. Ibn Abi ‘Amir acted in this fashion in order to ingratiate himself with the people of al-Andalus and to discredit in their eyes the principles followed by al-Hakam. Indeed, these sciences were ill regarded by the older generation and criticized by the leading men. The majority of those then engaged in the study of philosophy lost their ardor and kept secret what they knew of these sciences, only cultivating openly the branches permitted them, such as arithmetic, the rules governing the partition of inheritances, medicine and the like.” Toynbee, Arnold, ed., Cities in History, McCraw-Hill Book Company, New York, 1973, p. 177.

Around the year 999, the same year he murdered his brother, Mahmud of Ghazni destroyed the Hindu temple dedicated to Shiva at Somnath in Gujarat. Then he burned the famous library of the Fatimids in Bokhara. He may have advertised himself as a patron of the arts, but in reality he was just another two-bit religious fanatic. He built the Celestial Bride Mosque in Ghazni.

Christian Barcelona sacked Cordoba in 1010. Muslims raided Pisa in 1011: their last big raid into Italy. In 1013, Berber rebels seized and sacked Cordoba wracked by internal unrest. Al-Mansur’s palace and carefully censored library were destroyed. In 1071 Seljuk Turks took Jerusalem from the Fatimid Muslims, then they fought each other among its ruins.

On or just before the first weekend of 2012, during rioting between political protestors and the military, the Institute of Egypt was gutted during twelve hours of fire and then flooded by Cairo’s Fire Department. The next week, the remains of 192,000 books, journals and other writings were picked over by volunteers trying to salvage something from the wet ashes of that collapsed building. One of the five copies in existence of the 24-volume Description de l’Égypte, hand-written during Napoleon’s scientific expedition, was destroyed along with many irreplaceable texts on Egyptian culture and history.

Libyan Islamists destroyed a Sufi library in the Asmari Mosque as well as other shrines in Tripoli, Misrata and Zlitan in August 2012. In January, 2013, like-minded fanatics destroyed more mosques and shrines in Timbuktu, Mali. Thanks to the preservation efforts of heroic locals (Abdel Kaddel Haidara and many of the town’s leading families) with foreign support arranged by Stephanie Daikité, those religious thugs found “only” 4,000 manuscripts to destroy out of a scattered collection of 300,000 or more.

In January 2014, two thirds of a nearly 80,000 title library of irreplaceable Muslim and Christian manuscripts and books in Tripoly were put to the torch, based on a spurious accusation invented by religious Libyan fanatics.

ISIS IS BURNING BOOKS AT IRAQ LIBRARIES – HMM SOUNDS LIKE HITLER ALL OVER AGAIN!

I have never heard this reported by CBC OR CTV or Canadian News except our trusty NATIONAL POST of course. Does anyone wonder why this is not news? Why is this an ignorable obliteration of learning?? Of course we know the answer is that the pro-islamist terrorist news media in Canada and half the western liberal leftist news wishes to pretend all of Islam is moderate as they think they are. Of course we are all learning how the liberal left is so partisan that if you call the slaughter of the unborn wrong you may not be allowed to say your point of view in the Universities of our country, well actually you may not have a different point of view in your personal life or in your religion and get a lawyers degree, well unless you are a muslim terrorist then that is alright but liberals forbid you are a Christian…oh no they are not that liberal are they…they are liberal bigots now these lawyers and our courts and justice system who cannot tolerate the religions of Christianity or Judaiism??  Talk about burning books…these Liberals in Canada can burn the Christian ones in their courts and in their lawyers and in their minds while the madmen of Islam are now burning them in Iraq as they burned the libraries of Constantinople though of course the modern pro-Islamist scholars say they did not and of course accuse the Christians or Catholics of doing so??? What would we expect today? Who would we believe today? Well doing research we can find that there were a lot of people burning temples or books or librairies but the modern pro-Islamist scholars only look at the door of the Christians which I find a curious fascist type of expression of their leftist Islamist bigotry. Hitler did the same thing burning everything Jewish and destroying all the things that did not fit into his ideology. So I have looked up this disturbing behaviour and found a lot of history suggesting a more realistic view of who the bigots are at the time like today the burning of books is definitely related to the head lopping and slaughters of the Islamic terrorists today but the Islamist have not always burned books as has the Christians not always burned books or have the Romans not always burned books.

Unfortunately we are in a day of what I believe are the final days of the Islamist Beast Deterioration of an Empire of aggressors who will not learn from the History of the world because they have been busy changing and revising everyone’s history by imputing their own Islamism into all of it.

Never call the truth a lie or a lie the truth or evil, good or good, evil. or right, wrong or wrong, right. It is the beginning of a long road down to a pit of evil. Debauchery and hatred, slaughter and rape, ignorance and destruction of civilizations are always the reaping of this terrible fall of humanity!

You can read the whole of the research done by Glenn Miller at his site I have put here.

This library was burned down by Amr bin Aas at the behest of the Second Caliph, Umar. The story goes to state that Amr fed the numerous bath furnaces of the city with the volumes of the Alexandrian library. The story also relates the oft-quoted remark allegedly made by Caliph Umar (ruled: 634-644) when he consented to the destruction of the library, “If these writing of the Greeks agree with the book of God, they are useless and need not be preserved; if they disagree, they are pernicious and ought to be destroyed”. It was, the story continues, thereupon, decided that the books were contrary to the Quran and the whole library was burned down without even opening the books.

Equating the burning of Alexandria Library with that of Nazi policy, Joseph Barnabas writes, “the arguments of Caliph Umar and the Nazi book burning are not without explanations.”1 A Hindutva theorist, B.N. Jog, was more emphatic and clear: “Many people are surprised that Caliph Umar burnt down the huge and rich library of Constantinople. The urge for him to do so was, however, provided by his religion.”

_________________________________________________________________

 

    • The pre-Constantine church did NOT do ‘burnings’ or destruction of classical works and/or libraries.
      The pre-Constantine situation generally precluded any such ‘censorship’ by the persecuted church. The church of the 1st and 2nd centuries had no such ‘power’ and was busy expanding its own literature and presence. We have no data whatsoever about major library destructions–much less those perpetrated by Christians. (The case of the famous library of Alexandria we will discuss below.)
    • The early church leaders widely and favorably used classical works in their writings, maintained them in their personal libraries, and made attempts to preserve them.
      One has only to look at the works cited and the library holdings of some of the early writers to see how some of the intelligentsia of the early church embraced the classics.

      First let’s note some general observations/summaries by scholars:

      By the second century, however, the most vocal among this minority were writing in defense of Christianity and addressing themselves to educated pagans. To do this, they needed at least the forms and styles of classical literature. As church doctrine was expanded, Christian writers came to rely on the discipline and vocabulary of ancient philosophy, and then to recognize that many of the ideas had considerable value.” [ME:44]

      From the time of Justin Martyr and Clement of Alexandria, the Christian programme had been to accept and uphold the positive value of the best Greek philosophy” (CTEC:153)

      Christian writers from the middle to the end of the second century–Justin, Clement, Irenaeus, and Tertullian, to name only major figures–knew and used a great many texts, scriptural and nonscriptural, Christian and non-Christian…(BREC:152)

      “During the 4th century the most creative and talented people in the empire were drawn to Christianity, and educated upper-class Romans began entering the church in large numbers. These were people who were not ready, or even able, to forsake Athens because they had come to Jerusalem.” [ME:44]

      Among those scholars and teachers who converted to Christianity–men like Justin in the second century, Cyprian in the third, and Augustine in the fourth–pagan literature would have constituted the original stock of their libraries, to which Christian literature was added. (BREC:176

    • The post-Constantine church was NOT responsible for the burning of the famous main library at Alexandria.
    • These invasions created most of the following forces that account for the disappearance of masses of mss. in the West.

      • The materials were very fragile and perished quickly.: “Because papyrus paper was an extremely fragile material, Latin manuscripts–rare exceptions aside–have been lost. There are even fewer Latin manuscripts than Greek manuscripts…This continued to be true up until…the fourth and especially the fifth centuries.” (HPW:61) [Note–this is BEFORE any Christian Emperor tries to suppress paganism!]
      • The destruction of the classical works and libraries of the ancient world was the result of accidental fires, neglect, the barbarian invasions, de-urbanization, and the destruction of the educational system/public records systems by those invasions.
        If the Christians didn’t destroy all the classical literature, then how DID it seem to disappear?

        First of all, we need to point out that they did NOT disappear–“Thus it can be seen that the great writings of the classical era, particularly those of Greece, were never completely lost to the western world. They were always available to the Byzantines, and to those western peoples in cultural and diplomatic contact with the Eastern Empire. However, during most of the Middle Ages these contacts were few and tenuous, and, for all practical purposes, scarcely significant.” (HLWW:75). ( It should be noted that the Byzantine empire was a “Christian” empire, that treasured and preserved classical literature.)

        The main destructive forces in the West in this arena were NOT the church, but the vast amount of “barbarian” invasions of Western Europe.

        • The 1st Germanic kingdom within the Empire was founded by the Visigoths, who sacked Rome in 410ad [ME:37]
        • The 2nd Germanic kingdom was established by the Vandals in N. Africa in 429. They marched/destroyed through Gaul and Spain on the way to N. Africa [ME:38]
        • The disruption of order: Muslims (invaded Sicily in 827 from N. Africa), Vikings (invaded Eng 787, Franks 840-911), Magyars (related to the Huns, east Frankish devastation, end of 9th century) [ME:139-141;MMA:199-200]
    • The invasions themselves destroyed public records and urban libraries. Roman legal archives were burned by the Gauls in 390bc (but probably reconstructed). [HPW:85]
    • The West soon lost the ability to work in Latin and Greek, and thus the preservation of the culture and literature based on those languages was at risk.: “The period after St. Augustine is marked not only by the almost universal disappearance of a knowledge of Greek, and a steady change in the type of Latin used, but also by a great decline in intellectual culture.” [MMA:183-184] By 800 Latin had ceased to be a spoken language except among the clergy. [MMA:183]
    • The Western institutional church–although considerably uneven in its estimates of the value of various classical authors–nevertheless had a number of individuals and institutions that almost single-handedly preserved the classical works that we enjoy today. The system of patronage, protecting classical scholars and texts also played a role in this.
      There were several situations where the Christian leaders (above) were funded and protected by royalty (esp. the ‘barbarian’ royalty).
    • The Eastern institutional church preserved the major mass of Greek mss. that was used to ‘fuel’ the Renaissance in Western Europe.
      The Eastern empire preserved the Greek classics, and passed those classics back to Western Europe and over to Islam (who also passed them to W.E.).

      • The Eastern empire began with outstanding libraries: Constantine’s, the University, and the Church Patriarch (HLWW:72-73), and maintained most of that culture until the 15-16th centuries (HLWW:71).
      • Throughout its history, the East fed mss. back to the West. Examples include:
        1. The Irishman John Scotus Erigena (d.877) translated works sent from Byz. to French rulers! [MMA:196-197]
        2. Pope Gregory (590-604) borrowed works from Constantinople (HLWW:97)
        3. “Charlemagne, for example, obtained copies of books from the Imperial Library at Constantinople for his palace library at Aachen.” (HLWW:75).

The pre-Constantine church was the victim of a thorough-going Christian book burning campaign by the Roman Emperors.

    • “The writings of Christians were suppressed by most of the emperors before Constantine” [HLWW:66); list of persecutions below from ACH:87]
      1. Nero (54-68)
      2. Domitian (81-96)
      3. Marcus Aurelius (161-180)
      4. Septimius Severus (193-211; up to a point)
      5. Maximinius I Thrax (235-8; up to a point)
      6. Trajanus Decius (249-251)
      7. Valerian (253-260)
      8. The “Great Persecution” under Diocletian, Galerius, and Maximinus II Daia (303-313)
  • What we end up with is the seemingly odd pattern that the classical works were ‘moved’ just at the right time to be ‘preserved’; and that church-based institutions arose just at the right time to allow access to the basic contours of classical culture throughout this period. The Christian church, then, was THE major factor in the preservation of classical culture–and NOT the “enemy thereof”.
  • The vast majority of the censorship/book burnings of the later church were insubstantial–either symbolic or directed at non-classical works.
    • As noted above, Islam was dependent on the Byzantine empire and on the Nestorian Christians for their access to the classics (see above, and also HLWW:78: “(In addition to the mss. from the Nestorian Christians at Nisibus)…Moslems also obtained Greek works from Constantinople through regular trade channels and captured others in their various wars with the Eastern Empire”).
    • When they conquered Constantinople, they did as much book-damage as any Christian raid ever did (HLWW:76).
    • The Islamic empire flourished for about 300 years, and was a book-looking society. They built immense libraries, rivaling even those of Constant. (HLWW:80-82).
    • But their story is similar to that of the West:

      Unfortunately, the story of Islamic libraries is all too similar to that of their predecessors in the classical era; they, too, ended in wholesale destruction. Many Moslem libraries suffered in civil wars and in the decline of interest in learning under various rulers at different times. Religious dissension often resulted in conquests that brought on destruction of books relating to the history and beliefs of particular Moslem sects. When Saladin, a Sunnite Moslem, conquered Egypt in 1175, a country where the Shi’ite Moslems had been in power, he is reported to have destroyed whole libraries and distributed the finer works to his victorious followers. After 1100, reactionaries gained control in most of the eastern Moslem world, and the fortunes of Moslem libraries declined sharply.” (HLWW:84)

    • The greatest destruction to Moslem libraries resulted from the raids of the Mongols in the 13th century. The hordes of Genghis Kahn and Halagu Khan destroyed the major population centers of Islam–including Baghdad (HLWW:84-85), destroying libraries and killing scholars/students.
    • “But what was the effect of that Moslem civilization on the western world and particularly on the libraries of the western world? Since much of their literature was lost, the effect was not as great as if the libraries had been preserved. However, the Islamic libraries, almost as much as those of Constantinople, were a connecting link between the learning of classical Greece and the cultural development of western Europe.” (HLWW:85).

    The point is that Islam preserved works that Christians had already preserved (in Constantinople and Nisibis). They did play a part in filtering some of that back into the Western world (largely via Spain), before they suffered their ‘dim ages’ at the hands of Invaders.
    Summary: The relative numerical ‘advantage’ of New Testament manuscripts over their classical ‘rivals’ turns out to NOT be due to Christian destruction of libraries or book collections. Rather, it was largely through the efforts of commited Christians that the classical traditions survived to this day.

ISIS BEHEADS FOUR CHILDREN IN IRAQ AFTER THEY REFUSE TO CONVERT TO ISLAM

“Islamic State turned up and said to the children, you say the words that you will follow Mohammed.

“The children, all under 15, four of them, said no, we love Yesua, we have always loved Yesua, we have always followed Yesua, Yesua has always been with us.

“They said, ‘Say the words.’ They said, ‘No, we can’t.’ They chopped all their heads off. How do you respond to that? You just cry.”

HOW WOULD ANYONE RESPOND TO THIS?   Islamic Monsters beheading little children for not believing what they want them to!

Well the Canadian Media News does not respond to this and other slaughterings by Islam at all.

Isn’t it a curiosity that Canadian news does not carry anything but their watch of a muslim journalist or other journalist beheaded but, as for the common Christians and animists and non-muslims slaughtered, raped and beheaded by the Islamic madd men of this earth and ISIS of Iraq and Syria and Turkey they ignore these slaughters and these gruesome Hitlers of this last age that are considered the same as everyone else by journalist today. Besides the victims of these vile Islamist killers are not as important as their idiot leftist journalist..and then these common people only fall by the tens of thousands under the sword, guns and bombs of their muslim Islamist buddies they like to defend. One must consider that the politically correct can’t even accuse Boko Haran or Putin and his Russian tanks moving into the Ukraine, of invasion, murder and destruction or heaven forbid the term of terrorists. They are only the sovereign homelands of these people who are residents and citizens. I mean Obama is in a quandary at to whether you can call the Islamic anti-semetic terrorist slaughter in France a terrorist attack but then his Islamic self wishes to call the terrorist screaming allah hackbar in Fort Hood, as he gunned down 12 people and put 30 in hospital struggling for their lives, an incident of workplace violence. So much for his being a moderate muslim anymore but a politically correct muslim of great shame to America…Yes! Obama Hussein the muslim President who speaks perfect and excellent ancient arabic when he sings what he calls the most beautiful sound on earth, the muslim call for prayer, just does not think the Islamic terrorist really are terrorist attackers, but, incidents of workplace violence.

{The following column originally appeared in The Washington Times.

Finally righting one of many shameful actions President Obama has imposed on our nation, Congress is passing legislation which makes eligible those killed and injured in the Fort Hood terrorist attack of 2009 to receive the Purple Heart.

In an early indication of the how craven Mr. Obama’s politics are, he knew the attack sent a message that with his election the enemy felt they had free reign. So, Mr. Obama decided to pretend the soldiers under attack by the enemy were in fact just victims of “workplace violence.”

The refusal by the administration to recognize the true nature of the attack meant our soldiers who were injured could not receive the Purple Heart with which comes a variety of benefits. Additionally, for those killed, their families would also be denied the additional benefits afforded loved ones whose family member gave all serving our country….. According to NBC in Dallas, Rep. Roger Williams and Rep. John Carter, Texas Republicans, released a statement Thursday saying, “This is a huge step in the joint efforts to help victims of the Fort Hood terrorist attack, and I’d like to thank Rep. John Carter and many of our Texas colleagues for their endless support. Our nation’s leaders must uphold our solemn commitment to provide for troops in harm’s way — whether at home or abroad. President Obama has neglected those whose lives were taken and forever changed that day. This bipartisan, bicameral legislation gives President Obama yet another opportunity to honor his pledge to take care of our American soldiers who were victims of terrorism.” }

We live in strange times and I am giving you the articles of a business community reporting the slaughter and practices of these ISIS Pigs…they behave like pigs so Muslim ISIS PIGS deserve the name because humans should not do what they are doing in their slaughter houses for the humanity they hate that won’t believe as they do. What is amazing is that they asked the children to convert to their pedophile head lopping prophet Muhammed and when the children said “No. they loved Yesua” these pieces of human filth promptly lopped the heads of these lovely children for not accepting their pig of a prophet who did the same to thousands. What horror has come upon the earth I ask and the world is silent in light of these beheaded and all their families who have been there in Iraq for thousands of years. They have slaughtered tens of thousands and are emptying their lands of Christians by slaughter! Woe to those through whom offences come to these little ones .

Matthew 25   40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels…

British ‘Vicar of Baghdad’ claims Isis beheaded four children for refusing to convert to Islam

Isis have beheaded four Christian children in Iraq for refusing to convert to Islam, a British vicar based in the country has claimed.

Canon Andrew White, who is known as the ‘vicar of Baghdad’, told Orthodox Christian Network that the killings happened in a Christian enclave close to Baghdad which has been taken over by Isis (formerly known as Islamic State).

He spoke of how Isis has “hounded” the Christians out of Iraq, and how “they killed in huge numbers, they chopped their children in half, they chopped their heads off, and they moved north and it was so terrible what happened”.

He told the network that militants “came to one of our people the other day, one of the Christians”.

“They said to one man, an adult, ‘Either you say the words of conversion to Islam or we kill all your children’.

“He was desperate, he said the words. And then he phoned me, and said, ‘Abouna [Father], I said the words, does that mean that Yeshua doesn’t’ love me anymore?’ I said, ‘Yeshua still loves you, he will always love you”.

Canon White claimed that the children who were beheaded had refused to “follow Mohammed”.
Andrew White interview: ‘The majority of Muslims are our friends’

“Isis turned up and said to the children, ‘You say the words that you will follow Mohammed’.”

“The children, all under 15, four of them, said no, we love Yeshua, we have always loved we have always followed Yeshua, Yeshua has always been with us.

“They said: ‘Say the words.’ They said ‘No, we can’t.’ They chopped all their heads off. How do you respond to that? You just cry.”

Canon White said that Isis were threatening to kill him, and that he is now living in Israel, following orders from the Archbishop of Canterbury to leave Iraq. He said that most of his staff are still in the north of Iraq trying to look after displaced Christians

According to a report, ISIS has just beheaded four Christian children for refusing to convert to Islam. All the victims were under the age of 15.

According to Canon Andrew White, A Christian who fled Iraq and sought refuge in Israel, his home country is no longer safe for Christians. It is not certain whether he witnessed the beheadings, but according to his account during an interview with the Christian Broadcast Network, ISIS showed up unannounced and demanded the children to pledge their loyalty to Mohammed. When the children refused and told the militants that they love Yeshua (Jesus), they were promptly executed by decapitation.

ISIS has become increasingly ruthless and has used beheadings to instill fear in whoever they deem to be infidels. Not only has ISIS beheaded four Christian children, but they have also executed Christians even when they do renounce their faith.    According to Raymond Ibrahim, a writer for the Gatestone Institute, it is normal practice for ISIS to raid small Christian communities in Iraq and force the citizens to convert and recite the shehada, a traditional proclamation of faith to Allah. However, if the militants aren’t satisfied with the renunciation, then the converts get beheaded anyways. In some cases, the victims will be shot rather than beheaded if they are determined worthy of a swift execution. However, non-Muslims are typically executed by the knife rather than by a bullet.

When ISIS seizes territory, Christians are often rounded up and given three options: convert, leave the area, or remain in the area as a Christian and agree to pay a special form of tax known as the jizya. However, many Christians along with Kurds and Shiite Muslims have been slaughtered in mass executions without being ever given a choice.

Four Christian children beheaded by ISIS only represent one of countless gruesome killings. The terror group also films their execution for use as a propaganda tool for creating widespread fear. Their tactics have become so extreme that they were even denounced by al-Qaida leader Ayman al-Zawahiri.}
