Christians in Iraq, Syria, and throughout the Middle East have suffered gravely at the hands of Islamic terrorists. Now a Muslim cleric has given an ultimatum to Iraq’s Christians- ‘convert to Islam or die’:
Dozens of Iraqi Christian families filed a lawsuit against the head of the Iraq’s Shia Waqf (Iraqi Shia Endowment Fund), Sheikh Alaa al-Moussawi, on charges of incitement against Christians.
Al-Moussawi, who is in charge of the body which maintains all of the Shia holy sites, including mosques, Huseiniyas and schools, sparked anger as he declared Christians to be “infidels” during a speech in southern Iraq, according to local media.
Al-Moussawi, described the Christians as “infidels and polytheists” and stressed the need for “jihad” against them.
Many have accused him of imitating the rhetoric of Islamic State (IS) militants by stating Iraqi Christians must either convert to Shia Islam, pay a religious tax known as a jizya tax, or be killed.
An Iraqi judicial source told The New Arab that 180 Christian families filed a lawsuit under grounds that he is “instigating incitement against Christians and disturbing the religious plurality of Iraq”.
Al-Moussawi has responded by sending a delegation from the Waqf to the Babylonian Christian Movement to mediate the lawsuit and the allegations that his comments have mirrored IS rhetoric. (source)
Now while this story certainly is important news, as Muslims do often persecute Christians. However, there is something that gives me concern for this story- the source.
This story seems to have first come out of Alaraby, which is a Middle Eastern News Network based in London and founded in 2014 as a “counter” to Al-Jazeera. Its founder is Azmi Bishara, a “Christian” from Israel with strong connections to the communist party and a host of other groups. What is of particular interest is that he is a direct supporter of the opposition to Syrian President Asad and helped to form the “National Coalition For Syrian Revolutionary And Opposition Forces.”
“Syrian opposition?” Does this sound familiar (Hint: ISIS)?
Now I tried to look up this “Sheikh Alaa Al-Moussawi,” but I do not find a terribly large amount of information about him. Indeed, I could not find anything about his life prior to this story, which is the first time that I heard of him. It is as though he just “appeared” out of nowhere and made these statements and has since vanished just like smoke rising into the atmosphere.
What about this “Iraqi Shia Endowment Fund?” I looked around for it online but I could not find it. However, I did find an Iraqi Sunni Endowment Fund.
Now as you look at this story, remember a few other points.
First, Christians in Iraq are being viciously persecuted by ISIS- these are Sunni terrorists, NOT Shias- who are backed by the USA, EU, Turkey, and the Gulf Arab states.
Second, the Shias are allies of not only President Asad and the Christians, but also of the Iranians and the Russians, two countries which America has been attempting to provoke into a military conflict for years.
Third, as we have been pointing out with many other stories, particularly with the “migration crisis” in Europe, the very people who are opposed to the migrants are the same people who are helping them to enter, and the reason for this is that just as the communist uses economic pressure to force social revolution, the national socialist uses race and cultural conflict as his pressure point to force social revolution. All have the same intentions and same end with only their particular method of forcing change to be different.
Fourth, as we have also noted, the persecution of Christians- real or perceived- is being used as a justification to rile people to support particular sides or political parties. The national socialists have been very effective at doing this among Christians in Europe and America. By mentioning and talking about these real events and facts, they present themselves as opposition to the “left,” which tells egregious lies in the face of obvious truth. But what the National Socialist will then do is to say that Nazism is the “solution” to the problems. It is a perfect “bait and switch” technique, where the facts are used as a vehicle to deliver people a conclusion that is a lies.
In light of all these facts, I call this story to be a real-life example of fake news. Make no mistake, I could be wrong, but there are too many questions with this story that one cannot get an answer to and given the context of current world affairs, it is very possible this story is a fake. But why fake it?
Easy. The Shias right now are essentially allies of the Russians in Syria and Iran. I suspect this story is attempting to manipulate the genuine sentiments of Christians seeing fellow brethren being persecuted by Muslims into directing their anger at these and other “Shiite Islamic Terrorists.” This could then be used to drum up support for an invasion/aggressive strike against Iran, a Shiite majority nation, and with that also pull the Russians into a military conflict.
I emphasize that I do not know any of this for sure. However, truth is often times stranger than fiction, and in a world of propaganda, deceit, and and misdirection where facts are used as weapons to draw false conclusions for the benefit of evil, powerful men at the expense of the good and by manipulating the good will of others, one must be exceedingly cautious.
Christian persecution is real, and Islam is truly an anti-Christ religion. However, the fact is that even the good sentiments of people can be manipulated to support evil causes without their knowing. It is all the more reason to be cautious.
