Open Season on Christians in Libya

United with the Persecuted


Share their stories Knowledge is power!




A few days after seven Copts were identified as Christians, pulled out of their homes by “unknown gunmen” and taken out and executed in Jarutha, some 20 miles west of Benghazi (see here for graphic pictures), Egyptian Copts are still being singled out and killed.

This comes after the Islamic jihadi group, Ansar al-Sharia—which appears connected to Egypt’s now ousted Muslim Brotherhood—offered a reward to any Benghazi resident who helps them round up and execute the nation’s few Christians, according to Egyptian human rights groups.

Yesterday another body was found, believed to be that of a Copt—due to the small cross tattooed on his wrist traditionally worn by Egyptian Christians, not least to identify themselves.

And the day before that, another Coptic Christian, Salama Fawzi, 24, was shot at, including in the head, while he was unloading food in front of his grocery stand in Benghazi by several “unknown gunmen”; he is currently in critical condition.

Under Col. Gaddafi, many Copts migrated to Libya looking for work opportunities.  However, since the dictator was ousted—and sodomized and murdered, to gleeful laughter by Hillary Clinton—Christians have been under attack there, from the arrest, torture, and killing of Christians accused of “proselytizing,” to the bombing and burning of churches in the north African nation, evincing the true nature of the U.S-supported “Arab Spring” takeover of Libya.

    Oh Holy Heavenly Father, may You bless and comfort the families and friends of these men who were martyred for their belief in the LORD Jesus Christ, may they all truly believe that Romans Chapter 8 is true, and may their faith in the LORD GOD Almighty (Rev 21:22) grow. By the example of the martyrs and their families, may many unbelievers come to belief in the truth: “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6)

    May all of the saints of GOD – CHRISTian brothers and sisters – truly believe that all of the Holy Word of GOD is true and may we begin to pray for each other (Eph 6:18) that “the only wise GOD” (1 Tim 1:17 & Jude 1:25) will be glorified by the persecution – and if GOD so allows (Luke 17:1) – by the martyrdom of each and every saint for their true faith in Him!!!

    Bro. Nick – Hab 3:18 / Ps 115:1
