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.

    • Five Christians have been charged with murder in Laos after a sick woman sought prayer at her local church, converted to Christianity and later died. Mrs Chan, from Saisomboon village in Savannakhet province, had been ill for two years when she approached the church. Her health improved for a short time, and she and her eight grown-up children came to faith in Christ. The sons and daughters wanted a Christian burial ceremony, but the authorities forbade this unless they renounced their faith, which they refused to do. When Christians in the area protested, five were arrested and subsequently charged with Mrs Chan’s murder. Pray that the God of justice will have compassion on His people (Isaiah 30:18) and ensure their acquittal from this false accusation. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed 13 hours ago

    • A Christian from Loynam village in the Savannakhet province of Laos was arrested on the morning of 29 May and tied to a post before being imprisoned. Two weeks earlier, police and village security officers had gone to Mr Sort’s home and threatened him with eviction from the village and confiscation of all his property if he did not give up his faith. He refused, despite repeated attempts to coerce him. The village chief then seized around £300 of Mr Sort’s money. Give thanks that our brother, who has been a Christian for less than two years, has stood firm in his faith, and ask the Lord to renew his courage and strength (1 Corinthians 16:13).

    • Iraqi Christians are losing even previously safe havens under the relentless assault of ISIS. On 25 June, the militant group attacked the historic Christian town of Qaraqosh, near Mosul, driving its mainly Christian population of around 40,000 to flee. Many Christians from Mosul had gone there after the fall of their own city earlier in the month. Kurdish forces were able to repel ISIS from the town, allowing some people to return to their homes for the time being, but their security remains extremely precarious. Pray that the ISIS advance will be stopped and that the Iraqi security forces will be able to regain the captured territory. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Wed, Aug 2014 00:00

    • Heavenly Father, we cry out to You for the Christians left in Mosul, mostly elderly and sick, as they now face the threat of sharia penalties introduced by ISIS: the amputation of limbs for thieves, crucifixion for criminals and the death penalty for apostasy. We pray that You will protect them from the brutality of the militants. We pray for peace and healing for those who have already been threatened or attacked, and for the safe return of those who have been kidnapped. We pray too for those struggling to pay the humiliating jizya tax that the militants have imposed. We ask that the attempt to restore a united Islamic state under one ruler in the cross-border territory controlled by ISIS will come to nothing.

    • The militant jihadist group ISIS launched a terrifying attack on Mosul, the second city of Iraq, on 6 June. They seized weapons, freed prisoners and looted and torched church buildings. Three days later, police came to senior church leaders there and advised the Christian community to leave. They fled immediately, leaving everything behind as they sought refuge in the Nineveh valley. The following day Mosul fell to the rebels. Barnabas sent emergency aid to support the Christians in their desperate need. The militants then advanced south, prompting Christians also to leave the city of Kirkuk. Pray for provision and protection for our displaced brothers and sisters and that they will find safety in the Kurdish areas of northern Iraq.
