4 foreigners arrested for promoting Christianity in Libya

Four foreigners have been arrested in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi on suspicion of being Christian missionaries and printing books about Christianity, a security official said yesterday.

“They were arrested on Tuesday at a publishing house where they were printing thousands of books that called for conversion to Christianity,” security official Hussein Bin Hmeid said.“ Proselytising is forbidden in Libya. We are a

100 percent Muslim country, and this kind of action affects our national security.”

Hmeid said the government-affiliated security apparatus had arrested an Egyptian, a South African, a Korean and a Swede who was traveling on a U.S. passport.

Just because you don't like the truth doesn't make it any less true.

(At least you managed to post this time without rolling around on the floor. That is progress.)

That fact that you believe your statement from post 3, and I quote, "Sounds like the kind of country you guys want to live in." (in reply to the topic), is the truth, is merely proof that you are a clueless troll........

That comment rates right up there with you statement that the muslims came by the practice of pedophilia honestly.......

I would ROTFLMAO but you just aren't even funny anymore, just an ignorant, hateful little she troll.........

Karl and Fred are always pining for a country where there are no people different than them. They are always longing for a land free of "muzzies" and non "third world" people.

So query, what's the difference between their dream utopia and your little story about Libya?

Some people just have a death wish. These people. A black guy who willingly walks into a KKK rally. A KKK guy in a white sheet who willingly walks into Harlem. An Irish protestant wearing orange into a Irish catholic church. A Michigan fan wearing maize and blue into the OSU student section.

All of them qualify for a Darwin award. Anyone with any sense doesn't do these things.

Protestant prosthelitizers are looked at in most of those countries, even Eastern European Christian countries, as kooks.

There are 300,000 Coptic Christians in Libya who have been there since the time of Christ. They don't need Rod Parsely and his followers to teach them anything.

Russia Harassing, Expelling Missionaries
NewsMax.com
Monday, July 24, 2000

The crackdown on foreign missionaries under way since the collapse of the Soviet Union has worsened since Russian President Vladimir Putin came to power, a series of new reports reveals.

The reports from Britain’s prestigious Keston Institute, which are based on several months' research throughout Russia, suggest that a decline in freedoms for religious minorities has accelerated sharply under Putin, a practicing Orthodox Christian and former KGB agent.

According to the Keston Institute, the FSB – the Russian security agency that replaced the brutal KGB – is harassing missionaries by obstructing them from carrying out their work and even driving them out of the country, possibly because under a new defense doctrine signed by President Putin in December they are viewed as a potential threat to the national security.

...

According to Britain’s Times newspaper, the institute cited such cases as the expulsion of 11 American missionaries from the autonomous Muslim republic of Bashkortostan. The missionaries were accused of activities "incompatible" with their humanitarian aid visas.

The seven Protestant missionaries, along with four children, were reportedly ordered to leave by June 1 after the republic’s President Rakhimov was infuriated when he learned the missionaries had translated St. Luke's Gospel into the Bashkiri language.

The group's leader, who, like many missionaries, did not want to be named, accused Mr. Rakhimov of using the FSB "as his police force, to intimidate people into submission."

The missionaries were warned that "proselytism, or forcible conversion" was illegal.

In another instance of harassment, a U.S. missionary was expelled from the southern city of Volgograd. A local newspaper quoted the FSB as saying, "Practically all American religious organizations working abroad are in some way connected with the U.S. security services."

Observers note that this is exactly the line taken by the old Soviet state, which viewed all missionaries as spies and, in 1998, even denounced the Keston Institute as a cover for Western intelligence agencies.

In February, a letter two officials attached to the presidential administration sent to Russia's State Committee on Affairs of the North warned that the United States plans on "wresting away from Russia all of the Far East." They cited "the religious invasion of a huge number of American Protestant preachers " as being part of the alleged plot.

..

The official policy echoes the attitude of the Russian Orthodox Church, which has a centuries-long history of hostility to Western Christianity, even though it has not been directly linked to the new wave of persecution.

"We do not welcome American missionaries because they do proselytizing work," a spokesman for the Russian Orthodox church said. "We cannot have a common mission and we don't agree with theirs."

Coptic Christians are among those who can rightfully claim to be the original Catholics and the original Christians.

They don't need to learn anything from ROD Parsely and Jimmy Swaggart.
