According to a news release from International Christian Concern (ICC) , Christians in the Ethiopian city of Besheno are being harassed and physically abused after Muslims posted notices on the doors of Christian homes warning them to convert, leave the city or face death.
Three Christian leaders were forced to flee while two Christians have been forced to convert to Islam, said the ICC report. In the Muslim majority city, the entire evangelical Christian community consists of about 30 believers.
The ICC says that Evangelist Kassa Awano remains in critical condition after Muslims attacked him on November 29, 2010. A few days after the attack, nearly 100 Muslims surrounded a vehicle carrying Christian leaders on their way to negotiate for peace with Muslim leaders. Two men, Tesema Hirego and Niggusie Denano, were seriously wounded, and the other leaders suffered minor injuries. On January 2, Muslims assaulted Temesgen Peteros with a knife after he testified about the attacks on these Christians in court.
Christians in Besheno have been targeted by Muslims for many years. On May 21, 2004, Muslims murdered the 7 year-old daughter of Evangelist Tesfaye Hobe. Muslims continuously attack Christians for listening to Christian songs and watching Christian videos.
We ask for our constitutional right [to freedom of religion] to be respected. We want this inhumane act to stop. We are unable to live in our own city due to the inhumane acts, one of the Christian leaders who fled the city told ICC.
The ICC report said "The local Muslim officials of the city refuse to protect the Christians. The officials ignore their appeals for justice, declining repeated requests for the building of a place of worship and a cemetery. On January 19, a Christian mother was forced to bury her deceased daughter in...

Again, this isn't related to his statement. Who's "they" in your comment?
Every Christian is a sinner, but that doesn't contradict: "Christianity is not a sinful religion."
According to them, the first one never ended.
Islam is a disease on the earth, it is a vile, barbaric, perverted, gutter ‘religion’ that needs to be utterly destroyed from the face of the earth.
Are you paying attention, Katie Couric? (Probably not.)
World Christianity has 2.1 billion adherents whose faith is based on their beliefs, while Islam has 1.2 billion adherents whose beliefs are based on fear. Which is superior, I wonder?
Dogs bark. Lions roar. Jihadis kill normal people for not being jihadis.
This is a death cult. It is not a peaceful religion with just a few extremists.
None of its practitioners should be in a civilized country.
That is what O’bozo wants, he is complicit and encouraging the scum Muslims.
so much for tolerance. or even dhimmitude.
The cult of Islam cries out. “Silence, I kill you.”
At this point we still have the right to worship as we please- or not- the adversary is raging. One place to start is to look to our neighbor and see how/if we can treat him/her as Christ would, and would want us to so also.
Speak up when the occasion calls for it, where we see we can make a difference in people’s lives.
Am I going to defend sharia- not at all.
But I will defend others to believe what they consider right for them, Christian or no-—and I expect the same from those around me.
Islam is no longer slowly creeping, they're flat out running and searching for a kill. Islam, sharia law, and their violence is unheard of, incredibly horrifying and still people in the US think these folks are gonig to be different when they get their numbers up?(rhetorical question, obvious answer)
It’s way past time for the Christians in that area to start dishing out what they have been receiving from the Islamic nut jobs.
That’s the only way this is going to stop.
Can you think of that one time your parents lied to you to protect you?
Or that little white lie you told to your child?
That's Muslim gratitude for you.
I dont thinkso.
Bush? HE had a knowingly had a mouth full of shit but smiled in spite of it...... and mouthed those words......it was all politics, IMO
Obama? Thrives on that mouthful. Its his world the Kendonesian grew up in.
He isnt American by any stretch....
This, logically, is meaningless. If you wanted to make a logical connection you could say "Every Christian is a sinner, therefore Christianity is a religion of sinners. This would be true.
You could also say "All Muslims must believe in the Koran. The Koran requires murder or subjugation of non-Muslims. Therefore all Muslims believe in murder and subjugation of non-Muslims". This would also be true.
It would seem obvious that a religion based on murder and subjugation is not a "religion of peace".
