View all

The Israel-Hizbullah conflict has revealed a deepening rift within the Muslim world between those who desire peaceful coexistence with the non-Muslim world and those who espouse a radical agenda for Islamist superiority and dominance.

Views supporting Hizbullah

All over the Muslim world, Islamists have been organising demonstrations in support of Hizbullah and against the passive stance of their own governments. In many Arab states, Islamists of the Muslim Brotherhood type dominate professional syndicates and they have been active in denouncing their own governments’ attitudes and in calling for anti-Israel action.

Reports from around the Arab world reveal that Hizbullah is riding a wave of popularity at the street level because of its confrontation with Israel which is seen as heroic and as restoring Arab and Muslim honour. Posters of Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah feature prominently in demonstrations against Israel and in support of Hizbullah. These demonstrations also support the radical Iranian position on the development of its nuclear weapons and on the total destruction of Israel.

Calls to cancel peace treaties with Israel

Jordan: The Association of Jordanian Writers launched a campaign to collect a million signatures on a call to cancel the 1994 Peace treaty between Jordan and Israel.

Egypt: The Muslim Brotherhood in alliance with several opposition parties issued a call to cancel the Egyptian peace treaty with Israel and stop the supply of oil and gas to Israel. They called on all Arab countries to cancel any ties they might have with Israel.

Support for Iran and its nuclear bomb

At an Egyptian Lawyers Council conference, the chairman praised Iran and its President Ahmadinejad, and expressed his desire it would own a nuclear bomb. The hundreds of delegates responded with cheers and with cries of “long live Ahmadinejad”.

Saudi intellectuals oppose their governments’ policies

Seventy-three Saudi intellectuals and thinkers expressed their rejection of their governments’ cautious position, and asked Arab governments to make every effort to stop the Israeli attack on Lebanon and on the Palestinians.

    • 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 20 hours ago

    • 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

    • Pray for three Christian prisoners of conscience in Vietnam who are being denied access to Bibles and other sources of spiritual support. Prison guards in Hanoi and Thanh Hoa province have refused to allow Le Quoc Quan, a lawyer and activist, and bloggers Maria To Phong Tan and Paul Tran Minh Nhat to receive visits from their church leaders and have prevented them from receiving Communion. Maria is serving a ten-year prison sentence in a harsh labour camp; she has been beaten by other inmates. Pray that the Lord will sustain and build up the faith of our brothers and sister as they cry out to Him in their need (Psalm 142:6). Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Sun, Jul 2014 00:00
