Extremist cleric to lead White House protest calling for Muslims to "rise up and establish Islamic state in America"

British extremist Anjem Choudary - who once said "the flag of Islam will fly over the White House" - has announced that he will lead a demonstration calling on Muslims to establish sharia law across America.

The rally, organised by the Islamic Thinkers Society of New York, is to take place outside the White House on Thursday 3 March. Mr Choudary, the former leader of banned group Islam4UK, said, "We expect thousands to come out and support us." Two other British extremists, Abu Izzadeen and Sayful Islam, have also been asked to speak at the demonstration.

Nandos opens halal restaurant in Manchester

Nandos has this week opened a halal restaurant at Manchester Fort Shopping centre.

Store manager Jonathan Mazfari said that the restaurant was already proving popular with customers. He said, "It's been amazing; we haven't stopped since we opened our doors this week and have had lots of positive comments from the customers, particularly as we are halal."

Operation Nehemiah can confirm that Nandos halal restaurants sell only halal meat. However, Nandos says that some of its restaurants are not halal. To check whether a specific Nandos outlet is halal or not, go to http://www.nandos.co.uk/afdsearch/AFD/Search_for_your_Nando's.html.

Christian Easter Egg cracks Britain's retail market

A church backed campaign has succeeded in convincing retailers to stock The Real Easter Egg, the UK's first and only Fairtrade charity egg to mention Jesus on the box.

Morrison's, Waitrose, Co-op and Booths are all to stock a limited "trial-listing" of the Real Easter Egg and sell it in their biggest stores. Supermarkets initially turned down the Egg, unsure if there was a place for a charity-faith egg in their Easter range.

The Bishop of Manchester said, "It is great news that for the first time people will have the chance of buying an Easter egg from a shop that explains the significance of the festival on the box."

To read more about Real Easter Egg and how to purchase go to www.realeasteregg.co.uk

Operation Nehemiah Prayer
  • Pray that the government will respond positively to our calls to prevent halal being served across Britain without consumers' knowledge. Pray that we will soon see halal clearly labelled and that non-Muslims will have a clear choice.
  • Pray that RE will be included in the English Baccalaureate and that Christianity will not be prevented from being taught in our schools. Pray that the government will make decisions that do not further advance the secularisation of Britain.
  • The religiously-motivated attack on a teacher in London was an isolated incident, but pray that teachers in our schools will be encouraged to do their job without fear of offending those of other faiths.
  • Everyone has a right to worship, but pray that the "mega-mosque" - a deliberate statement of Islamic supremacy - planned by an extremist sect in London, will not go ahead. Pray that God will strengthen His Church in this part of London.
  • Pray that the introduction of the "Real Easter Egg" will be a clear and effective witness for the true meaning of Easter.

    • 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.

    • An Uzbek Christian who had converted from Islam died earlier this year and was buried. The local Muslim leaders banned any Muslim from attending the man’s funeral. But one of his work colleagues, a radical Muslim who had been struck by the Christian’s words and way of life, attended the funeral anyway, ignoring all the threats and warnings. She was puzzled by such a hostile reaction to a man she knew to be “God-fearing”. At the funeral she heard the Gospel and decided to give her life to Christ. Pray for “F.” as she is now being disciple and growing in her new faith, that she will be strong in the face of opposition from the Muslim community.

    • Pray for hundreds of Christian, Yazidi and Turkmen women held in Badush Prison in Mosul, Iraq by ISIS militants. The women are reported to be raped daily unless they agree to convert to ISIS’s brand of Sunni Islam. The UN estimates that there have been roughly 1,500 Iraqi women and children from the Christian and Yazidi communities abducted by ISIS and then forced into sexual slavery. Ask our Heavenly Father to have mercy on each one of these women and children and to deliver them from evil. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Thu, Nov 2014 00:00
