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.

    • Father God, we pray for Meriam Ibrahim and her family in Sudan as they face a very uncertain future. We thank You that Meriam was cleared on appeal of the charges of adultery and apostasy that were laid against her and that she was spared from flogging and execution. But we pray that the new charges of forgery and false information relating to her travel documents will also be dismissed and that the family will be free to leave Sudan and begin a new life elsewhere. We pray that You will keep her safe in the meantime from those who have threatened her with death. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed 29 minutes ago

    • The case of an Egyptian Christian man arrested following complaints by Muslim neighbours that he had been using his home as a church without a permit highlights the need of the Christian community for more places of worship. The 55-year-old man from Minya in Upper Egypt, where Christians are particularly vulnerable to persecution, was arrested once before, in 2011, for the same offence. Every church building in Egypt requires a permit, but these are notoriously difficult to obtain. Pray that the authorities will show leniency to the Christian man and that a provision in the new constitution addressing the issue of church buildings will be enacted.

    • Kidnapping for ransom has been a persistent problem for the Christian community in Egypt amid the political upheaval and instability following the “Arab Spring” revolution of 2011. On 14 June, Wadie Ramses, a well-known surgeon, was seized in El-Arish. The assailants opened fire on his vehicle and took him away wounded. They later demanded a ransom of ten million Egyptian Pounds (£800,000; US$1.4 million) for his release. Two days later, Christian merchant Gemal Shenouda was captured near his home in the same city. It is thought that Islamic militants with links to al-Qaeda, who have been behind escalating violence in the Sinai region, are responsible for the kidnappings. Pray for the safe return of our two Christian brothers and that they and their families will know the Lord’s peace. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Mon, Sep 2014 00:00

    • On 18 June, Bishoy Armia Boulous (31) was sentenced to five years in prison and given a fi ne of 500 Egyptian Pounds (US£70; £40) for “disturbing the peace by broadcasting false information” in connection with reports he produced relating to anti-Christian violence in Minya for a Christian TV channel. His lawyer believes that Bishoy has been targeted because of his conversion from Islam. The Christian gained notoriety in Egypt in 2007 as the first person to try to change his religion on his ID card, a case that is still unresolved owing to the political tumult in the country over the last three years. Pray that the Lord will be Bishoy’s strength and shield (Psalm 28:7), and that he will soon be released. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Sun, Sep 2014 00:00

    • Saudi Arabia remains unique in the extent to which it restricts the public expression of any religion other than Islam.” In its annual report for 2014, the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom highlighted the extraordinary restrictions faced by Christians and other non-Muslims in one of the most rigid and hardline Islamic states in the world. No churches exist in Saudi Arabia because of an Islamic tradition that Muhammad said there should be only one religion in the Arabian peninsula. Pray for peace and perseverance for the small number of Saudi converts and the many expatriate Christians practising their faith in this repressive context, and ask that the authorities will yield to international pressure to introduce greater religious freedom.
