Crosswinds Special Edition

Speaking at the University of Cairo last month, President Obama chose to rewrite American history. 

"I know that Islam has always been a part of America's story," Obama told the throng of unenlightened Muslims.  "The first nation to recognize my country was Morocco... and since our founding, American Muslims have enriched the United States."

Obama went on to say:  "They [Muslims] have fought in our wars.  They have served in our government.  They have stood for civil rights.  They have started businesses.  They have taught at our universities.  They've excelled in our sports arenas.   They've won Nobel Prizes, built our tallest building and lit the Olympic torch.  And when the first Muslim American was recently elected to Congress, he took the oath to defend our Constitution using the same 'Holy Koran' that one of our founding fathers, Thomas Jefferson, kept in his personal library."

Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council debunks President Obama's revisionist history regarding our founding fathers and their view of the Islamic threat. Take a look:

"President Obama went on to cite John Adams' words when the second president signed the Treaty of Tripoli in 1796. Adams, at the time, said we had 'no enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility of Muslims.' The only problem was that the Barbary Pirates, then operating out of Tripoli, continued to prey on American shipping. Although he didn't use 'micro loans' or new 'science and technology' funds, Adams attempted to buy them off and failed. By 1800, nearly one-fifth of the federal budget was consumed in trying to pay off predatory rulers in North Africa. When Thomas Jefferson succeeded Adams in 1801, he dispatched warships and the U.S. Marines 'to the shores of Tripoli' to fight for American rights. Jefferson was determined not to pay tribute to the Muslim rulers of North Africa and to stop their seizing U.S. merchant ships and selling American seamen into slavery. That effort succeeded."

"And yes, Jefferson did own a copy of the Koran as President Obama states in his speech today. But the reason he read it when he was serving as our ambassador in Paris was to see if it could really be true-as Arab diplomats were telling him-that the Koran gave them the right to attack and enslave Americans and all other 'infidels.' Jefferson concluded from his reading that America must fight-not pay tribute-to protect her citizens."

We recommend that President Obama cease using revisionist history and stay on track with the Judeo-Christian ethic that this country was founded on.

headerPetition for Christians in Northern Nigeria
Dear Donna Matthews,
 map
Since the introduction of Sharia law in northern Nigeria in 1999, religious violence has resulted in the death of 12,000 Nigerians, the displacement of thousands more, and the destruction of places of worship and private property.
 
The most recent violent attacks occurred on July 26 and 27, when the Islamic extremist group known as Boko Haram carried out attacks targeting government security officials, innocent civilians, police stations, and churches. Hundreds died as a result of these attacks. This violence, which started in Bauchi state, also engulfed the northern Nigerian states of Borno, Kanu and Yobe.
 
The Islamists razed twenty churches in Madiguri, Borno state and killed several Christians including: Sabo Yakubu, pastor of a Church of Christ congregation in Nigeria, Reverend Sylvester O Akpan, pastor of National Evangelical Mission, and Reverend George Orji, pastor of Good News of Christ Church.
 
In addition, in April 2009, several Christians were injured and places of worship destroyed after a group of Muslims attacked Christians while they were celebrating Easter in Niger State.
 
In February 2009, 11 people were killed and 14 churches and one mosque were burned down in Bauchi after Islamists carried out attacks against Christians in the city. Hundreds of innocent people lost their lives following one of the worst instances of religious violence in Jos in November 2008.
 
The violence and the resulting wanton destruction of lives and property are avoidable. Nigerian security officials have repeatedly failed to take preventive measures before such attacks occur. Also, Nigerian officials repeatedly fail to bring the perpetrators of these attacks to justice.
 
Would you join us petitioning the ambassador of Nigeria to take steps to protect the Christian minority in northern Nigeria? Please follow the instructions below and have your signatures back to us by September 19.
 
Here's How You Can Help
 
#1 Pray: The first thing you can do to help is stop right now and ask the Lord to intervene.
 
#2 Next, review our petition. Nigerian officials are concerned about their relationship with the United States and other countries, so when the people shout, they will listen. We have also found that evil prefers to stay hidden and when we shine the light on it, it flees.
 
#3 Electronically sign the petition by clicking here.
 
#4 Print out the petition and take it to your church and have everyone you know sign it. Send it back to us so we can present it to the Egyptian Ambassador. Feel free to print out extra signature pages for large numbers of sign ups. When you have collected all your signatures, please mail the signature pages to (please note that our address has changed!):

Dear Donna,
 
There is an extraordinary situation taking place right now that you need to know about today. It involves Christians who are under attack by Muslim extremists.
 
Radical Muslims are specifically targeting families simply because they are Christians. Injured, hungry, and destitute, they have nowhere to take their sick children; nowhere to get treatment for the wounds they suffer; and no way to even get the most basic of medical supplies like aspirin or bandages. 
 
For security reasons I cannot mention the specific location, but I can tell you it is a situation that is all over the daily news, TV, and internet.
 
Our brothers and sisters plead for much-needed relief.
In response, we are launching Project Hope. I have recorded a personal message for you to explain this crucial project in more detail.
    
Today I am asking you for your online gift to support Project Hope, which will help us deliver over $3.5 million worth of vital medical supplies to our suffering brothers and sisters.
 
Your gift will also mean we will be able to continue supporting and encouraging those who are looking to us in these truly difficult days.
 
Thank you for responding generously. God bless you for your relentless commitment to “strengthen what remains and is at the point of death.”
 
In Christ,

Christians attacked in Pakistan; VOM staff providing help

The Voice of the Martyrs

 

Christians were forced to flee for their livesDear VOM Friends:

It was just a rumor. But among the radical Muslims in Pakistan's Gojra village, a rumor was enough of an excuse to kill.

When the rumor was broadcast from the loudspeakers on the minarets of local mosques, it became fact. As part of a wedding ceremony, the loudspeaker shouted, Christians tore pages from a Quran. Then they compounded the disrespect by walking on the shredded pages.

"Defend Islam!" The loudspeaker called. Muslims answered, rampaging through a Christian section of Gojra on Aug. 1. Eight Christians were killed, including women and children. More than 100 Christian homes were burned by a mob. The mob, which was estimated to be more than 20,000 people, also burned a church.

Five Hours Without Help

Emergency personnel did not reach Gojra for more than five hours. Christians were forced to use vegetable carts to move their dead and wounded to the hospital.

Responding to an international outcry, Pakistani government officials have now said no Quran was desecrated. The government promised to help rebuild the burned homes of Christian families.

Even before the government acted, contacts of The Voice of the Martyrs were in Gojra, offering comfort to the wounded and praying with the families of the dead. They continue to aid the village, including helping with some medical expenses, offering encouragement and pressing for a forceful government response.

Among the items burned in the attack were Bibles and other Christian materialsPray Blasphemy Laws Are Overturned

Christians in Pakistan hope these attacks can be a turning point. They are praying to God and pressing their government to overturn unjust blasphemy laws that are often a pretext to attack Christians.

They are also asking us to pray with them. Pray for Christians in Pakistan to be bold witnesses for Christ, despite threats. Pray for those wounded and left homeless by the brutal Gojra attacks. Pray for Muslims to come to know Jesus Christ in a personal way.

Dear Friend,

Upcoming Tunisian Elections

Join Christians in Tunisia as they pray for their country and the presidential and legislative elections to take place October 25.  This North African country along the Mediterranean boasts a population of over 10 million people. The comparatively small Christian community is largely made up of foreign residents and native-born citizens of Arab or European descent.  There are no laws against conversion from Islam; however, government officials use bureaucratic means to discourage it, and new Christians often face ostracism, with most of the pressure from families.  

Father we join the Tunisian Christians as they pray for their elections that those who rule their country will rule with godly justice and that their hearts will turn to You. We also ask that You protect the Muslim Background Believers from persecution, but also bring opportunities for them to share the good news of reconciliation with Yourself through the sacrifice of Christ

Acteal Prisoners – Update

Alonso Lopez Entzin spent 11 years and eight months in prison for a crime he did not commit.  Accused of participating in the tragic “Acteal massacre” in December 1997, he and more than 80 of his neighbors were arrested and charged with the murders. On Aug. 12, the Federal Supreme Court of Mexico ordered that Lopez Entzin and 19 other men accused in the Acteal killings be freed.  Of these men, 18 are believers, but only 5 of the men were believers when they entered prison almost 12 years ago.  The remainder met Christ during their time in prison.  

“There are thousands and thousands of brothers who prayed for us inside the jail – thank God He answered those prayers,” Entzin said through tears.  Despite being freed, the 20 men have yet to resume normal life with their families. They are living in makeshift half-way houses provided by the federal government in hot, bustling Tuxtla Gutierrez, awaiting re-settlement on land that state authorities have promised them. Please continue to pray for these men as they readjust to life outside prison walls and for the Federal Supreme Court of Mexico who will be reviewing 31 more cases in the coming weeks.  

Father, we give thanks for bringing about justice for these men.  And we give thanks for Your work in the hearts of many who encountered You in saving faith while in prison.  We thank you, too, for the confidence that
even now You continue to work for justice on behalf of those who remain
in prison.  Give them all courage and hope.

Dear Donna Matthews,
 
Thank you for your support to date. We just learned that the Burma orphans are again in a percarious position: 
On November 27th, Thailand’s border police stormed the Shekinah (Glory to God) orphanage in Mae Hong Son Province near the Burma border, put the names of all the residents on a register and asked them to prepare for deportation.
 
After fleeing Burma in June, the children were temporarily moved to another orphanage closeby. However, due to the spread of Malaria in that orphanage and the subsequent death of one girl, they were quickly shifted to the new location. It has been just a week since the 76 children (between the ages of six and sixteen) were moved to the new location, around 100 miles from the orphanage on the Burma/Thailand border.  
 
Please pray that the Thai officials would have mercy on these children and allow them to stay. The best situation would be for the orphans to be granted permanant immigrant status.
 
Thank you once again for your prayers and your action on behalf of the persecuted.

The media may have forgotten about the protests for democracy in Iran, but the pleas for freedom and fair governing have not gone away.
 
The pro-democracy movement was thrust into the spotlight in June 2009 after President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was reelected in what many contend was a fraudulent election.  The face of the movement was the students of Iran, but these students have been joined by thousands of other Iranians looking to remove the Islamic fascist regime. Not the least of these are the many Christians forced to worship in secret for fear of facing the death penalty after an unfair trial.  On December 7, 2009 these freedom fighters are planning to commemorate Iran's Student Day with renewed anti-regime protests.
 
In the last month, government officials have cracked down on student organizations, arresting and prosecuting dozens of students. According to the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran (ICHRI), no information is available on many of the arrested students and several students have been expelled, sentenced to prison or lashings.
 
"In order to silence the student movement, a wholesale crackdown on Iranian students is underway, which not only violates their rights, but also disrupts their studies and the lives of their families," said Hadi Ghaemi, a spokesperson for the ICHRI.


Spokesman for the United Persion Organization (UPO) many Iraninas have gone beyone demanding fair democracy and are trying to find a way for an unequivocal regime change.
 
"The people of Iran are beyond disputed election results. They demand an Iran without theocracy, without Islamic Republic... Iranians from all walks of life will join students in demonstrations all across Iran to demand freedom, democracy and secularism, and an end to the current regime."
 
The UPO and ICHRI are asking for support from around the world. "Americans, Europeans, Asians and Africans - we all have to stand behind the Iranian people. It is our duty as human beings," UPO declared.
 
The WCICC supports the pro-democracy, pro-freedom and pro-religious freedom movements in Iran so that our member churches and National Director in Iran can worship freely without fear of repercussions.       It is our duty as Christians to support all peoples looking to expand the freedoms of free and open speech and the ability to worship freely. Please send up your support and prayers to those trying to end this oppressive Islamic regime in Iran.

“One Hundred Days of Combat” in North Korea

September 17 marked the end of “150 days of combat” in North Korea during which the movement of citizens was closely monitored.  Permits were required to go from one place to another.  Everyone was required to work for the state and if they were found on the streets without a permit they were sent to labor camps.  Additionally, church leaders report that many are starving to death from the famine.  Even some parents have left their children as orphans to wander the streets because the pain of helplessly watching them slowly starve to death was too much to bear.

The work of Open Doors was restricted during those 150 days, but on September 17 the workers were ready to begin again distributing Bibles, Christian literature, food, medications and emergency goods.  Then a mere five days later the disheartening news broke that another “100 days of combat” was declared.  After much prayer, the Christian leaders have determined to continue this vital work during the restrictions and have asked that we cover them in prayer.
 

Father, our hearts weep over our brothers and sisters in North Korea who suffer so much hardship simply because they were born in a place ruled by a tyrannical leader.  Comfort them in their suffering; have mercy on them; meet their basic needs of food and shelter; protect them.  Thank you for the bold compassion of those who share even their meager rations with others who have less. And in the midst of this profound darkness may Your light  shine and cause Your church there to grow.

Letters from America
  
Consider sending an e-letter to “Free North Korea Radio” and let the North Koreans know we are praying for them.  Your greeting will be read on the radio in North Korea!   Include your first name, what state you live in, and a brief message.  We ask that you avoid making the message overly complicated as it will be difficult to properly translate.  Send your e-letters to prayer@odusa.org and put "Letters from America" in the subject of the email – you can write as often as you wish!

Praying with you,

The Prayer Force Team
