    Egyptian Police Still Holding 130 Christians Captive [​IMG]
    CAIRO, Egypt (December 23, 2010) - Although local police have released 70 Christian prisoners in need of medical treatment, they are still holding 130 of the worshippers arrested when 2000 policemen brutally attacked a church being re-constructed on November 24.

    Local Christians told Christian Aid Mission's Africa Director Rae Burnett that many of those being held captive by the police are women and children who had come to the church to attend a worship service.

    Egyptian Christians asked Burnett to call Americans and friends around the world to pray for them during upcoming Christmas services. An extensive list of requests is available from the Christian Aid Africa Division.

    "We appreciate your love and concern for your brothers and sisters here in Egypt," said one leader who is distributing emergency humanitarian relief from Christian Aid, which is based in Charlottesville, Virginia.

    During the attacks on the church construction site, over 20 people were blinded in one or both eyes, five were killed and scores were injured. Over 25 homes in the surrounding Christian neighborhood were burned to the ground.

    "The most important aid we can send is financial," says Burnett, "because injured believers are being required to cover their own medical bills at government hospitals and pay for rebuilding their homes and businesses destroyed during the anti-Christian rioting.

    Those who have lost family members have the additional expense of burying their dead."
    Burnett said that Christian leaders are asking for the emergency aid to help suffering family members who survived the police attacks. Christian Aid is also collecting emergency relief funds for Christmas, which is not celebrated in Egypt until January 7.

    [​IMG]A presidential decree from the central government had been granted to allow the rebuilding of the church, but local officials and police decided to destroy the new church building before it could be used for worship this Christmas. Eye witness reports said the police chanted Islamic war cries as they attacked the Christians and attempted to demolish the building.

    Local Egyptian Christians released the following list of "Christmas Prayer Requests" and asked Christians around the world to intercede in their Christmas services and personal prayers that:

    (1) The Lord would have mercy on them in the current situations and rescue them from the hostility of the police, healing relations between the believers and their non-Christian neighbors who oppose the church reconstruction.

    (2) That the Lord will supply our urgent and most important needs and help believers to carry on a busy schedule of conferences and outreach activities planned for the New Year. An outreach is planned for January and outreaches at the Cairo International Book Fair when leaders from the entire Arab world will be gathering in Egypt.

    "We are so grateful for your concern," wrote the Egyptian leader, "and for the concern of those who share the need with us. Your love is obvious in every letter you send. We feel we are not alone; that you share with us the problems that we face."

    Police Attack Christians in Egypt [​IMG]
    CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA (November 29, 2010) - As Americans prepared to enjoy Thanksgiving with family and friends, Africa Director Rae Burnett received an urgent plea for prayer from one of the Egyptian ministries helped by Christian Aid:

    "Today we had evangelical outreach but it was cancelled because the police are destroying a church in the area where we live and serve. So Christians gathered in front of the government building to protest. To everyone's horror, the police opened fire on them. An unknown number of people have died so far and many others are injured. More than 100 were arrested.

    "Muslims were even hitting the Christian children in schools and people who were going to church in the morning. Children and churchgoers fled and remain frightened in their homes. No one is able leave home or to go any place. It is something like war between the police and the Christians.

    "SO PLEASE PRAY FOR US, OUR WORKERS, AND THE PEOPLE WE SERVE WHO ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS BATTLE. Please pray that the Lord will comfort the families of these martyrs and give speedy recovery for those who are injured and in dangerous situations.

    "Some public hospitals have refused treatment for wounded Christians. So the only choice is to either die or pay for the private hospitals which are very expensive. Very few can afford the fees. So pray for help for those people and that 100 person are still arrested we hope they be free soon. Pray that the Lord give supply for repair the damage to church buildings, and that the whole situation will calm down in peace."

    Kwani kuna muislam umeona ame support huo uhuni wa polisi wa misri?...i

    weje ulaumu uislam kwa jambo lilofanywa na muislam tena polisi anayefuata amri kutoka kwa mamlaka?

    unajuaje kama wakristo hao walifanya fujo? si kawaida polisi kupiga watu bure.

    si ndio hayo hayo wanayafanya kina Bush/Obama iraq? can we blame christianity for that?

    Islam is not a religion but a cult with religious, legal, political, economic and military ambitions.

    Acheni ukondoo. Kwani hao wakristo wameanza leo kuwepo huko Misri. Leta upande wa pili habari. Nini kimesababisha hali hii. Kwa sababu inaonekana hilo kanisa lilikuwepo muda mrefu tu. Kwa hiyo huwezi kuniambia waislamu ni wabaya sana wakati ni haohao walioruhusu hilo kanisa kujengwa. lete full newz, halafu kwanza muandishi wa hii stori ni nani??
