Christians say “Honour Hezbollah”

On Friday it will become illegal in the UK to show public support for the Lebanese organisation Hezbollah, which is about to be fully classified as a so-called “terrorist” organisation.

Hezbollah constitutes the biggest elected parliamentary group in the Lebanese government, and thousands of its supporters have courageously risked their lives and shed their blood protecting Christian, as well as Muslim, communities from Saudi-backed Wahhabi-Salafist head-choppers sent in to cause murder and mayhem in Syria and Iraq.

At the same time, the UK continues a lucrative multi-billion pound trade in arms sales to Saudi Arabia, an horrific trade in murder and mayhem that actually increased by two-thirds in 2017.

In return, Saudi Arabia funds the widespread construction of mosques throughout the UK which preach and indoctrinate Muslims living in the UK with the Wahhabi-Salafist message.

Common sense says it’s not going to end at all well.

The esteem in which Hezbollah is held throughout the Middle East by Christians can be gauged from the video produced below from a concert given by the Maronite Catholic singer Julia Boutros.

Persecuted Christians Not Welcome in UK

The Catholic Herald reports:

An Iraqi nun who wants to visit her sick sister in the UK has been denied a visa by the Home Office.

Sister Ban Madleen was driven out of Qaraqosh, the biggest Christian town in the Nineveh plains, by ISIS, who took over her Dominican convent. She settled as a refugee in Erbil, the capital of Iraqi Kurdestand, where she set up kindergartens. The refugees are returning to their home towns now that ISIS have been driven out.

Sister Ban is not the first religious to have problems visiting Britain, according to Fr Benedict Kiely, founder of Nasarean.org, which helps the persecuted Christians of the Middle East. Another Dominican nun with a PhD in Biblical Theology from Oxford has been refused a visa twice……

……. In December 2016 three archbishops from Iraq and Syria were refused entry into the UK despite being invited by the country’s Syriac Orthodox Church for the consecration of the UK’s first Syriac Orthodox Cathedral, attended by Prince Charles.

“Why do they treat Christians like this?”

UK visas: YES to radical Islamists, NO to Christian archbishops!

It is hard to imagine a more incongruous headline – just as the world’s attention focuses on the liberation of Mosul, the UK government has refused to grant a visa to the Archbishop of Mosul to attend the consecration of the UK’s first Syriac Orthodox cathedral, a church whose flock includes many refugees fleeing persecution from Islamists in Iraq and Syria………..

……….. Yet, at the same time this is happening, radical Islamist leaders are being told they can have visas – even though they represent organisations or movements that incite violence and persecution against Christians.
