Globalists Prepping for the Antichrist (II)

Turkish Delights

The Turkish military, the Muslim Brotherhood, al-Qaeda and Daesh – all now openly fight in Syria under the same flag, worn as arm-patches by Salafist terrorists and Turkish soldiers alike.

Their much-stated objective is to invade and impose a Neo-Ottoman and Salafist Empire throughout the Levant, Europe, Africa and Asia.

 

Nigerian Nightmare

“The current security situation in Nigeria is very bad and is getting worse by the day. Lives are lost on a daily basis either because of Boko Haram terrorist attacks, kidnappings, abductions, armed robbery, or banditry. The attacks on places of worship, to be fair, are on both churches and mosques. But in recent times, we see the selective killing and murder of Christians by either Boko Haram or ISWAP [ISIS or Daesh in West African Province].

There is a clear and planned campaign of persecution against Christians in Nigeria, and this is done in many facets of life, especially for the Christians living in the Northern part of Nigeria. The forms of persecution include political exclusion and discrimination in appointment to government positions; denial of land to build places of worship; denial of job opportunities and access to economic opportunities.

The impact of Boko Haram on the Diocese of Maiduguri is enormous. As a diocese, we have suffered both physical destruction and loss of lives. Since the year 2009, as our records show, over 5,000 Catholic faithful have been killed. Nineteen schools have been vandalised and destroyed, four health clinics destroyed and burnt down, and three convents ransacked, destroyed, and burnt down. About 20 rectories have been vandalised and destroyed, 22 parish churches destroyed and burnt, and over 200 outstation churches ransacked and destroyed, in addition to vehicles, motorcycles, and other church equipment. Our people are psychologically traumatised because of their losses.”

The importance of knowing Bethlehem

James J. Zogby writes:

“I have long been troubled by the way so many believing Christians in the West have either been ignorant of or turned their backs on the plight of Palestinians, both Christian and Muslim. Right-wing Evangelicals, under the sway of heretical theology, are so blinded by their obsession with Israel that they cannot see Israel’s victims. Other Western Christians simply just do not know or about the people of Palestine.

I find this state of affairs to always be distressing, but especially so at Christmas time, since the Christmas story we celebrate not only took place in that land, it continues to define the lives of the Palestinians who live in places like Bethlehem and Nazareth.”

Gaza Christians an intrinsic part of Palestinian society

“If the international community does not stop Israel’s aggression against the Palestinians,” the technical director of Al-Watania [Media Agency] told me, “you will not see any Christians in Gaza within a decade.”

There are two Christian communities in Gaza – Catholic and Orthodox — but there are no precise statistics for them. Neither of the two Churches in Gaza keeps such records, but according to Tarazi there were more than 30,000 Christians in Gaza in 1948. By 1987, though, when the First Intifada started, the number was only 18,000 and it has continued to decline because of Israeli aggression against the Palestinians. By 2006 there were just 2,500 Palestinian Christians in the enclave. “Today,” said Tarazi, “there are only 800.”

According to the director of public relations at Saint Porphyrius Church in Gaza’s Old City, it is indeed the Israeli aggression which is the main reason for the declining Christian population in the besieged territory. “We are part of the Palestinian people and we are affected by everything that affects everyone else,” Kamel Ayyad pointed out. “We experience all forms suffering under the Israeli occupation like our fellow citizens. Christians who left Gaza and those who are thinking of leaving are escaping from the occupation, siege and military offensives. They are looking for stability and freedom of movement.”

Digging up Franco is a grave attack upon Christianity

The anti-Christian government in Spain is about to desecrate the grave of former Head of State General Francisco Franco and remove his remains to a private family plot. Franco’s resting place is situated behind the high altar of the Catholic Basilica of the Holy Cross of the Valley of the Fallen. On Thursday, 23rd October, the anti-Christian powers in Spain are due to desecrate the sacrosanct property of the Church and trample all over her rights, just as they did in the years leading up to the Spanish Civil War.

In the two years leading up to the Civil War that began in 1936 until its end in 1939, more than 20,000 Christian churches were destroyed. The diabolical anti-Christian hatred unleashed in Spain persecuted, tortured and murdered tens of thousands of Christians in a targeted attack upon Christianity  Nearly 7,000 clergy and religious were cruelly murdered. The martyred include 13 bishops, 4,172 diocesan priests and seminarians, 2,364 monks and friars, and 283 nuns. The military coup, that started the Spanish Civil War proper, was partly in response to these ferocious and murderous attacks upon the Church, her clergy and religious.

In the Valle de los Caidos, the Valley of the Fallen, the basilica, and its surrounding monument, capped by a 500 foot Christian Cross, can be seen from some twenty-miles away. It is carved out of a granite mountain and erected as a symbol of reconciliation and peace, containing as it does the remains of 40,000 people from both warring sides. All their names are recorded in the monument’s register. In a similarly symbolic gesture Franco, the reactionary right-wing pro-capitalist military General, was laid to rest in the basilica next to the popular martyred Spanish nationalist leader Jose Antonio Primo de Rivera who sought social justice for the landless and oppressed and the unity of Spain based upon the social doctrines of the Church.

Interestingly, perhaps a sign of providence at work, Franco went to his eternal judgement on 20th November, the same day, but 39 years later, that Jose Antonio was martyred by the anti-Christian regime just a few months before the beginning of Spain’s Civil War.

With the removal of Franco’s remains and the desecration of the basilica, Spanish Catholics are expecting an increased wave of attacks upon what is left of Christian civilisation in Spain.
