News analysis from a prophetic Christian worldview
The perils of Pakistan, nation building and persecution

Christians around the world are rejoicing that Asia Bibi, a Pakistani Christian, is now at a safe haven in Canada after a decade-long ordeal that found her on death row for blasphemy of Islam. Bibi was sentenced to hang in 2010 for allegedly blaspheming Mohammad after an argument while picking berries in 2009. In October 2018, Pakistan's Supreme Court acquitted her based on insufficient evidence after intense political pressure from the world community, including Christian organizations. This is an example of the consequences of America's nation building under the Bush Administration in 2008 and as continued by the next president. It should serve as a reminder that Islam and freedom are incompatible. 
Let's roll back the clock to December 2007, when for several months The Daily Jot pointed toward Pakistan as the new front in the war of Islamic aggression. The assassination of former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto indicated that Pakistan's nuclear arsenal was a target of al Qaeda and the Taliban. The Bush Administration pushed hard to "democratize" Pakistan to protect an already $10 billion nuclear investment in the Islamic country.  The new democratically-elected government of Pakistan in March 2008 was the fifth "democracy" aggressively supported by George W. Bush where the end result was a Sharia law-based Islamic government with verbal agreements and some vague constitutional language to allow religious freedom.
America traditionally upheld religious freedom all around the world--that is, until Bush and the previous Administration began nation building in Islamic countries. The US insisted that religious freedom language was in the constitutions of Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Tunisia, Yemen, Egypt, Pakistan and so on. The problem, however, is that these constitutions also carried language that established Islam as the religion of the land. Islam, as an official religion, will not co-exist with Christianity or Judaism by virtue of Islam's theology. Therefore, no matter the toothless, symbolic language on religious freedom, Islam, and all that it is, became the official religion. All laws and religions must submit to Islam.
Attacks against Christians in the Middle East caused the Christian church to go so far underground that the US State Department said it couldn't find them. We rejoice that Asia Bibi is released. Also remember that our own government policy of appeasing Islam likely contributed to her horrible and tortuous ordeal, and to the persecution and deaths of Christians in other Islamic countries. These presidents claim they are Christian, but their policies were responsible for the suffering of Christians around the world. Titus 1:10 begins, "For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers... " And in verse 16 concludes: " They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate." Draw your own conclusions, Asia Bibi knows first hand.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

An Appeal for the Children Suffering in Mozambique

By Pastor William Agbeti

[NOTE: If you choose to support the relief efforts of Pastor William Agbeti for the children impacted by the cyclone in Mozambique, please just note "Mozambique" in your donation notation or on your check. ]

I am weeping right now for the devastation that children in Mozambique are caught up in! I am therefore sending an appeal to readers and supporters  to consider sending immediate help for children in Mozambique affected by cyclone Idai. 

Below is the plea for help:

Everyone might have by now heard of the devastation caused by cyclone Idai in Mozambique. Several 100s are dead and rendered homeless. Whole communities, including children, women and the elderly are without food and essential needs like water.Children are dying as a result and the nation has declared a s tate of emergency. 
Nearby Ghana, children in Mozambique are suffering from the impact of a cyclone that is predicted to have claimed over 1,000 lives

The hardest thing to bear is that all these things are happening right in our backyard. 

We hear the cries and pleas for help and cannot close our eyes and stop our ears to them.In the wake of all this, we cannot remain silent because the cries for help have become loudest of late.  We are therefore also calling for help in order to help affected children in Mozambique. 

This is our very first attempt at international outreach. 

I plan on leaving for the affected areas in a week, on an emergency errand.  Even if we are able to save a few children from starvation or death, that would be a lot accomplished in the name of the Lord! My plans are to stay for a week only in Mozambique, and distribute essential commodities and medications recommended by doctors in Ghana, with documented approval. 

My budget is $5000, including travel costs and essential items. Close to $4000 of this amount will go directly to help the children! Please extend a helping hand! I will be sending direct reports from the field, should conditions permit. Please send help now! 

God richly bless you for allowing Him to touch and turn your hearts towards children in Mozambique.

NOTE: In case we are unable to raise the target amount, the entire funds raised will be sent to the Mozambique consulate in Ghana, with specific instructions to help children with it!
