The 23-year-old widow of Malak Ibrahim, one of the 21 Egyptian Christians who were beheaded by Islamic State terrorists in Libya earlier this year, says she's proud and comforted by the fact that her husband refused to deny Christ and was praying to Jesus when he and the others were killed.
Mariam Farhat, who lives in Al Aour village, about 150 miles south of Cairo, told CBN News that she "was very proud" that Ibrahim "stood firm in his faith and that he didn't deny Jesus."
"We were very sad for the first two days, but we hadn't seen the video," she said. "When we saw them in the video calling to Jesus we were very comforted." more >>
MIAMI BEACH — A Middle East expert drew comparisons between the Islamic State and the Protestant Reformation at a recent Faith Angle Forum.
If there are any lessons about ISIS that can be drawn from what happened during the Protestant Reformation, Bernard Haykel said, those lessons are "terrifying."
"If we're embarking or are actually already in something like the Reformation in the Muslim world, then, you know, hold on because we're in for a really wild ride with lots of violence," he added. more >>
Terror group ISIS has released a new 14-minute propaganda video where it shows young boys dressed in ISIS uniforms reciting from the Quran, performing military drills with weapons, and being taught that carrying out suicide attacks will be a "great honor."
The Daily Mail noted that the video was shot near Raqqa in Syria, the captured city that the terror group has made the capital of its Islamic caliphate.
The boys in the video are shown crawling under barbed wire, being taught to use rocket launchers and AK47s, reciting Islamic prayers, listening to their teachers and carrying out their commands. more >>
Islamic aspirations to dominate the world are set to happen—if not through might of arms, then apparently through sheer numbers.
In 1900, the Muslim population of the world was less than 200 million. Conversely, the Christian population of the world was almost 560 million—almost three times the number of Muslims.
Times have changed. According to the findings of a Pew Research Center in America: more >>
Jewish author Avi Lipkin claimed Monday that "all" churches in America have been infiltrated by Muslim spies who frequently pretend to have found Christ but are really looking to provide intelligence to radical Muslims who will try to kill all Jews and Christians when jihad is ordered upon the U.S.
Lipkin, who has authored a number of books critical of radical Islam, frequently speaks at Christian churches around the U.S. to emphasize the importance of unity between the Jewish and Christian communities in standing against the advance of radical Islam. Lipkin, who immigrated from New York to Israel in 1968, spoke at this week's Future Conference held at Skyline Church in San Diego where he proclaimed that the world is facing the "most interesting" biblical period since the days of Jesus Christ and contended that the coming of the Messiah is just around the corner.
"We are realizing with our own very eyes fulfillment of more Bible prophecy than in any other generation in 2,000 years," Lipkin asserted. "I believe the Messiah is in our time and I believe Israel will realize its borders." more >>
Do the name callers who label people "Islamaphobic" support Qur'an instructed violence against women and girls?
To be "anti-Islam" (and "anti-Shari'a") is to reject submission to Allah and the Qur'an. To be anti-Islam is to be for protecting woman's rights and human rights. To be anti-Islam is to advocate for children who are powerless and voiceless, to liberate everyone enslaved by Islamic totalitarian ideology.
There is nothing bigoted, racist, or fearful about opposing a political ideology that rejects universally accepted human rights laws. more >>
