Today we are offering direct quotes translated from a variety of Arabic media outlets enlarging on yesterday’s information on pro-Hizbullah demonstrations and activities around the Arab and the Muslim world.

There is no doubt that at the level of the “Muslim street”, Hizbullah is riding a wave of popularity because of its confrontation with Israel which is seen as heroic and as restoring Arab and Muslim honour. Most media outlets in the Arab and Muslim world are celebrating Hizbullah even against the stance of their own governments. The theme of humiliation, shame and lost honour resonates deeply in the hearts of many Muslims and Arabs of all religious and ideological streams as they perceive themselves and their societies and states to be constantly overtaken by superior Western societies and states allied to Israel.

Calls to cancel peace treaties with Israel

From Al-Quds Al-Arabi, 24 July 2006

Amman - Cairo

The Jordanian Writers Association launched a one million signature campaign yesterday to cancel the Wadi Araba Treaty between Israel and Jordan that was signed in 1994. This reaction is a result of the criminal activities that the enemy’s army is committing against the Arab people in Palestine and Lebanon.

In its announcement, which was also received by the Agence Press France, the Association asked all the gentlefolk [nobles] of the proud Jordanian nation to sign the petition asking the authorities and the policy makers in the House of Representatives and the government to cancel the treaty [with Israel] and to close down the Zionist enemy’s embassy in the land of mobilization and equanimity (the honourable land of Jordan).

They called for the cleansing of Jordan from the representatives of the Zionist killers and terrorists, those who are slaughtering our children . . . under the eyes and the ears of the whole human community without any human consciousness and without showing any respect to this agreement or diplomatic representation.

In Cairo, the Egyptian opposition demanded on Wednesday to cancel all peace treaties signed with Israel. They asked to freeze all the Arab gas and petroleum transportation to Israel because of its destructive attack on Lebanon.

The Muslim Brotherhood, the Kifaia movement and a number of the opposition parties in Egypt, including the al-Ghad party under the leadership of Aymen Noor who is prison under a court verdict, issued a statement [communiqué] calling for the ending of all relations with Israel.

Ten Egyptian opposition parties signed the communiqué that requested Arab governments cut and cancel all ties with Zionist structures, freeze all agreements between them and the enemy [Israel], and expel all Israeli ambassadors and representatives out of all Arab and Islamic countries.

    • Pray for Christians and other non-Hindus in India following the landslide victory of the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the country’s general election. The BJP is the political wing of a Hindu nationalist movement, Hindutva, which is striving to make India a religiously pure nation. The party has given support to Hindu extremist groups that attack Christians, and states where it holds power have generally experienced a rise in anti- Christian violence. The party was in charge of Orissa state during the horrendous anti-Christian riots of 2007-08. It has also pledged to introduce national legislation to curb “missionary” activity and end “proselytising”; this may be used to restrict legitimate Christian evangelism. Pray that the new government will give equal rights to all India’s citizens and provide effective protection for Christians, Muslims and others from Hindu extremism.

    • Heavenly Father, we lift up to You today the heartbroken family of Mary Sameh George, a young Christian woman who was killed in an Islamist attack on a church in Egypt. We pray that You will comfort them and give them Your peace. We thank You that Mary was not ashamed to make her allegiance to You known, even taking the risk of provoking murderous anger against herself. We pray also for the families of three others who were killed in this attack at a church in Ain Shams, a suburb of Cairo, on 28 March. Lord God, may the hostility of Muslim Brotherhood supporters towards Christians in Egypt be restrained. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Thu, Jul 2014 00:00

    • Give thanks that as believers in some areas of Egypt continue to be at risk of violence from Islamists, Barnabas Fund is able to provide various kinds of practical help for needy Christians there, especially those most affected by the political turmoil. We are supporting Christian families in Upper Egypt with housing costs, medicines, food and schooling for their children, and 30 Christian students who were on the verge of dropping out of education because of lack of money have received funding to complete their education. Pray for all those receiving this help, that they will also be encouraged spiritually. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Wed, Jul 2014 00:00

    • Give thanks that the authorities in Egypt are pursuing justice for the Christian community following widespread violence against them by supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood last summer. Christians were scapegoated by the Islamists for the downfall of President Mohammed Morsi. On 14 August, mobs torched scores of churches, Christian institutions and private property in what was described as the worst single day of violence against the Egyptian Church since the 14th century. Over 100 Muslims have been charged in connection with the attacks; at the time of writing they were due to stand trial for rioting, attacking citizens and targeting the churches and homes of Christians. Pray that justice will be done and restitution made to churches and individuals who suffered material losses. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Tue, Jul 2014 00:00

    • “I was so happy and treasure this Word of God. It brings me so much peace and hope.” Uu Dee KoMang, an elderly woman in Burma (Myanmar), was one of many Christians who recently received a Kachin Bible through Barnabas Fund. Two years ago the Burmese army entered her village and ordered everyone to leave within the hour. Uu Dee took some clothes and food and ran, but her Bible was too heavy to carry. Now living in a relocation camp, she regretted not taking it, until the Bibles from Barnabas arrived. Pray that God’s Word will comfort and strengthen these believers who have lost so much and will give them encouragement for the future. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Mon, Jul 2014 00:00
