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 eight Cameroonian missionaries who have been harshly reminded of the cost of sharing the Gospel in their country during a training seminar to equip them for ministry. Barnabas had helped to fund a series of seminars, and on the final day of the last seminar they heard that Jean-Marcel Kesvere, another Cameroonian missionary, who had been planning to attend the seminar with his wife, had been kidnapped by Boko Haram and that his body had been found earlier that day. Give thanks for the response of the missionaries, who expressed their willingness to suffer similarly for Christ, and pray that their work will bear much fruit (John 12:24).

    • Please pray for Christians in northern Cameroon, where Boko Haram is terrorising people, especially Christians and security forces, just as in neighbouring Nigeria. The Islamist militants openly declare themselves to be Boko Haram, and issue threats by letter, including to pastors telling them they must leave. Two pastors were killed in the village of Assigashia on the night of 25-26 August, hich has caused great distress and consternation. The Cameroonian Christians ask for prayer that God will bring peace and security, that the kidnapped will be released, that believers will stand firm despite being targeted, that God will comfort the traumatised, and that church leaders will know how to prepare their people for persecution.

    • “The cathedral in Damaturu now has only about 40 members instead of 450 members. The church in Potiskum now has only about 15 members instead of 500 members… the southern part of [Yobe state] is still very dangerous and most of the churches here have closed down.” A senior church leader in Nigeria wrote to Barnabas Fund in August about the impact on the Church of Boko Haram’s violence. Nevertheless Christians were still holding worship services every Sunday, discipling the young people and even commissioning pastors. Praise God for such perseverance, and pray that a Christian presence and witness may remain in north-east Nigeria. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Tue, Oct 2014 00:00

    • Heavenly Father, we pray to You for our Christian brothers and sisters in north-eastern Nigeria, who are so vulnerable in the face of attacks by Boko Haram militants. We remember especially those who used to live in Madagali, in Adamawa state, until their town was seized by Boko Haram two months ago. We think of those who were betrayed into the hands of Boko Haram by their neighbours pointing out Christian homes or places where Christians had hidden. We bring before You those who saw their menfolk beheaded, and women forcibly converted to Islam. We cry out to You to intervene and bring an end to the murderous attacks by Boko Haram. We pray for all the thousands of Nigerian Christians who have suffered in similar attacks that they will not lose hope or faith in You, but will know Your peace which passes understanding.

    • Pray for a pastor in the Kilimanjaro region of Tanzania whose home was attacked on 17 May; two of his children were injured. When he went to report the incident to the police, he was falsely accused of raping a young woman who had left Islam to follow Christ. The pastor had taken her into his home, along with four other converts, after she was thrown out by her family; it was they who made the accusation against him. He has faced much opposition because of his fruitful outreach to Muslims, and several failed attempts have been made to frame him with false accusations. Pray that the sovereign Lord will help him and that he will not be disgraced (Isaiah 50:7-9). Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Sun, Oct 2014 00:00
