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 27 Christians, believed to be from various Asian countries, who were detained overnight by the Saudi authorities on 5 September for worshipping at a private home in Khafji. The home had been under surveillance since a neighbour had reported suspicious activities there. Pray that the Lord will protect His people in Saudi Arabia, where it is illegal to practise a non-Islamic religion in public but supposedly permissible to do so in private.

    • Wao, a predominantly Christian town on the island of Mindanao in the Philippines, is protesting against its inclusion in the new semi-independent Islamic region of Bangsamoro. Wao’s mayor, Elvino Balicao, is seeking exemption from the Bangsamoro government and its Islamic law and has asked that the town remain under the central government. He said that the town is 83% Christian and that local churches support exemption from Bangsamoro. Wao is in the centre of the Muslim-majority province of Lanao del Sur. Pray that the Lord will protect His people and that Wao will gain exemption from the Bangsamoro government. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Tue, Nov 2014 00:00

    • Our Father in Heaven, we lift up our brothers and sisters serving sentences in labour camps in North Korea, whether foreigners like Kenneth Bae from the USA, or the far greater number of North Korean believers whose names we do not know but You do. Please pour out Your grace into their lives as they suffer hunger, exhaustion, pain and imprisonment for the sake of Christ. May they continue steadfast in their faith, loving their enemies and praying for their persecutors. May their Christ-like lives draw other North Koreans to You.

    • “It is not typical for a man to show or talk about his weaknesses and admit them. These days the fear and pressure from the authorities and the Muslim world reveal the condition of my heart.” A Christian leader in Central Asia shared frankly in a letter the way in which the constant pressure he faced was wearing him down. He wrote how, having finally recognised his fears and defeats, he had then received encouragement from the Lord through the words of 2 Corinthians 1:1-10. Pray for our brother “M.T.” and the countless other Christians around the world living with ongoing opposition that the Father of compassion and God of all comfort will draw close and comfort them in all their troubles.

    • Thank the Lord that, with the help of Barnabas Fund, two house churches in a strict Central Asian country were able to purchase coal-powered generators. Winters there are harsh, and the power supply can Barnabas is helping 30,000 displaced Iraqi Christians be erratic. This particular congregation used to meet in a church building, but in 2009 their permit to assemble was revoked and seven of their members were questioned at the police station. Since then the church has had to meet in members’ homes. Pray that the Lord will continue to bless their ministry and that the generators will allow the church to continue to expand despite opposition from the government.
