Catholic Poland Rising

“Either Poland will be Catholic or she will not be at all,” predicted Stefan Cardinal Wyszyński.

Under the red glow of tens of thousands of flares and with patriotic and religious banners held aloft, a quarter-of-a-million Poles gathered in the centre of Warsaw  on 11th November, under the banner ‘God, Honour, Homeland,’ to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Poland regaining her territorial sovereignty.

No Sanctuary in UK for Persecuted Catholic

The Powers-that-Be in Britain are refusing sanctuary to Asia Bibi, the persecuted Pakistani Catholic mother of five, who was falsely accused of blasphemy by Wahhabi-Salafists in Pakistan, according to Wilson Chowdhr, of the British Pakistani Christian Association.

“I’ve been lead to believe that the UK government had concerns that her moving to the UK would cause security concerns and unrest among certain sections of the community and would also be a security threat to British embassies abroad which might be targeted by Islamist terrorists.”

Yet concerns of community “unrest” never prevented the British State from creating “certain sections of the community” in the British Isles in the first place. Nor have such concerns or “security threats to British embassies abroad” ever prevented the British State from exploiting and stealing the natural resources of ‘lesser countries’ and bombing and shooting their inhabitants to kingdom come.

The hypocrisy stinks to high Heaven.

Christians under attack in Jerusalem

Christians in Jerusalem’s Old City ‘under threat’ from settlers

Church leaders claim priests are being verbally abused and spat at while property is being vandalised in ancient walled city

Christians in Jerusalem’s Old City say their presence at the geographical heart of their faith is under threat from intimidation and aggressive property acquisition by hardline Jewish settlers.

According to Church leaders, priests are being verbally abused and spat at, and property vandalised.

The churches say they are facing onslaught on three fronts: a war of attrition waged by hardline settlers; unprecedented tax demands by Jerusalem city council; and a proposal to allow the expropriation of church land sold to private developers.

Theophilos III, the Greek Orthodox patriarch of Jerusalem and the most senior Christian leader in the Holy Land, told the Guardian: “Today the church faces a most severe threat at the hands of certain settler groups. The settlers are persistent in their attempts to erode the presence of the Christian community in Jerusalem.

“These radical settler groups are highly organised. Over the last years we have witnessed the desecration and vandalism of an unprecedented number of churches and holy sites and receive growing numbers of reports from priests and local worshippers who have been assaulted and attacked.

“Where the authorities are concerned, this behaviour goes largely unchecked and unpunished.”
