Three Columbus, Indiana churches were recently vandalized by graffiti messages that read "Qur'an" and "Infidels!."
Some of the vandalism even involved specific chapters and verses of the Islamic Holy Book being written on the walls of the house of worship. Members of the Islamic religion and the rest of the community have spoken out against the recent attacks.
One of the churches vandalized was St. Bartholomew Catholic Church. more >>
A 23-year-old captured suicide bomber from ISIS, who is lodged in a hospital in a Kurdish city in Iraq, spoke to Sky News and said the Sunni terror group has recruited numerous foreign fighters, including from the United States and Europe.
"There are nations from all over the world there. There is British amongst them. They are from Asian countries, Europe and America. From everywhere," Horr Jaffer, who is from Chechnya but had been fighting for ISIS in Iraq as a suicide bomber, told Sky News in an interview at a military hospital in the city of Sulaymaniyah, the capital of Sulaymaniyah Governorate.
The bomber was caught in the southern Kurdish town of Jalula after his bomb exploded only in part. Yet, four people were killed and several others were injured in the attack. more >>
A 13-year-old boy has shared of the beheadings, stonings and crucifixion he witnessed terror group ISIS carry out at children's camps in Syria, where the Islamic militants are indoctrinating young boys into their ideology and training them to use weapons.
"My friends and I were studying at the mosque, and they taught us that we should enrol in jihad with the [Islamic State]," Mohammed told CNN in a video. "I wanted to go, but my father did not allow me to."
The 13-year-old explains that he was called to attend one of ISIS' children's camps in northern Syria, and that the terror group threatened his father with death if he refused. more >>
Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah warned that the United States and Europe could be targets of Islamic terrorists within months if world leaders fail to deal with the growing terrorist threat. He appeared to be alluding to the Sunni terror group ISIS in Syria and Iraq.
"If neglected, I am certain that after a month they will reach Europe and, after another month, America," Abdullah said at a reception for foreign ambassadors Friday, according to Fox News.
"These terrorists do not know the name of humanity and you have witnessed them severing heads and giving them to children to walk with in the street," added the king of Saudi Arabia, a major U.S. ally in the region. more >>
"I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed."
There is a growing trend among Christians that claims this promise from Genesis 12 has expired that it is no longer valid. There are others in the Evangelical world, myself among them, who would rather stake our future and the future of our nation on the unchanging word of God.
It was this desire to bless Israel and publicly communicate our support of this resilient and remarkable nation, which gave birth to the recent "Christians in Solidarity with Israel" trip hosted by the National Religious Broadcasters. more >>
Despite how unsavory and barbaric Islamic groups and persons around the world have been acting—whether Nigeria's Boko Haram, Mesopotamia's Islamic State, Somalia's Shabaab—perhaps few things are as disgusting and cowardly as the Muslim rape of nuns: defenseless Christian women who sacrifice much of their lives to help sick and needy Muslims.
The latest such attack comes from Bangladesh, which is over 90 percent Muslim in population. In early July, dozens of men armed with machetes, knives and iron rods attacked the convent of PIME (Pontifical Institute of Foreign Missions nuns in Boldipuku), a village mission in north Bangladesh.
In the words of Bishop Sebastian Tudu "the nuns were beaten and molested, ending when police arrived." more >>
