Speaking Out Against the Persecution of Christians

Update: It appears that Lukas Saliba is repeating an urban legend (inadvertently or otherwise) when he displays and describes the photo of an “Aramaean woman” who was raped and murdered grotesquely. The image appears to be a publicity still from a gory movie, and does not represent a real event.

See this post for more details.

The following video is part of a speech given by an Aramaean Christian named Lukas Saliba during a demonstration in Frankfurt last Saturday against the Muslim persecution of Christians.

According to Politically Incorrect, Lukas Saliba is originally from Syria, and is the Chairman of the Union of Aramaic Youth (JAU). He and his fellows have been called “Nazis” and “racists” by the hard-left “anti-fascists” in Germany.

Many thanks to Kitman for translating and subtitling this clip. The video is embedded below the jump, followed by a transcript:


We are gathered here today, to speak with one voice.
The Massacring of Christians in Iraq
North Korea
Iran and other countries
Must be brought to an end!
Stop giving money to states in which Christians
are driven through the streets like animals for the slaughter.
No holidays where Christians are being murdered.
Don’t take vacations in countries where human rights are being trampled upon.
Dear newspaper editors, as you celebrate these supposedly “peaceful” revolutions
our priests are having their throats cut, keeping inside monasteries
protected by the Egyptian army.
Our churches are burned to the ground, our women abused
and we Christians chased around like cattle for the slaughter!
But after the attacks in Alexandria the newspapers said:
“He who simply speaks of ‘Christian persecution’ is not credible...”
The spokesman for the Socialist Party added: “to make a big show
exclusively for Christians discriminates against other minorities.”
Whoever denounces the persecution of Christians is often told,
even by his local church, that he is “disturbing the religious peace.”
To the people responsible of such statements I must say:
Your “peace” comes with the smell of our decomposing dead!
Your “appeals” for peace are just earplugs to keep you from hearing the screams
of all the people set on fire, mutilated and dismembered.
You are shutting your eyes to these horrors, because the shedding of our blood
flies in the face of your holistic multicultural dream world
Take a good look at this picture!
They tied this Aramaean woman to her bed, raped her,
and cut out her heart while she was still alive
Lastly, a crucifix was thrust down her throat as scorn
Is this your “Peace”?
Is this the fruits of your “dialogues”?
Leading up to this demonstration, we received threats against us.
And on ANTIFA’s websites Aramaean Christians were attacked as “racists” and “Nazis”.
We would like to address these “Fascists-in-red”:
We will never let our Christian martyrs be insulted or denigrated.
You are the fifth column of the people persecuting us in our homelands!

Britain's leading Catholic, Cardinal Keith O'Brien, made similar remarks today while presenting a report showing that 75% of the religious perscution ongoing around the world was against Christians. He called Britain's foreign policy "anti-Christian" because we are supplying huge sums in foreign aid to countries like Pakistan where Christians are regularly persecuted. Needless to say, most newspapers haven't even bothered reporting his remarks.

The money quotes:

Your “appeals” for peace are just earplugs to keep you from hearing the screams of all the people set on fire, mutilated and dismembered.

You are shutting your eyes to these horrors, because the shedding of our blood flies in the face of your holistic multicultural dream world.
[emphasis added]

And so the world's Interfaith Dialogue Community will — even louder this time — sing another rousing chorus of Kumbaya!

The image of the woman with the cross down her throat in the youtube clip about Aramaean Christians is taken from the film “Inner Depravity” by Remy Couture, a gorefilm producer. Here’s the ‘just before’ shot:


It has NOTHING to do with Muslims murdering Christians!

Zenster said...

Benny D, thank you for sounding the alarm on this bit of misrepresentation. There is more than enough factual evidence with which to damn Islam without resorting to plagiarism or fabrication.

You do all of us a tremendous favor by keeping the counterjihad honest in content and accusation.

The image from the horror flick may not be 'real', but does it really make a difference? When compared with the atrocities committed by the RoP on a daily basis it may as well be ...real. Those who murder a Jewish family of 5 in their sleep would commit even worse crimes if given a chance.

Boy gets his arms crushed for stealing a loaf of bread:

The image depicting a young boy with his arm wrapped and then having a truck roll over it is often depicted as sharia punishment. That is false: I have seen this with my own eyes when traveling around Iran in the seventies, its a stunt which truck-drivers put on to make some extra money. They are using their boys for this, as they are using them for other things at night. Every truck driver has his boy.

The Hamas child brides are real. Why?

I did have correspondence with the BBC journo who took the pics. First he protested, claiming the older brides where somewhere else. Later he admitted that he did not see them.

Fact: every Mohammedan wants to emulate Muhammad, who married Aisha when she was six and consummated the marriage when she was nine.

Hamas, like every fundamentalist movement, does not have a custom of brides maids, its a western concept. The girls wore make-up like whores, they walked hand in hand with their 'husbands' and a a senior Hamas terrorist exclaimed: "why should we not have fun".

Sheik --

Given that the deck is so thoroughly stacked against us, a scrupulous adherence to the truth is of paramount importance. Otherwise, our leftist enemies are handed a "GOTCHA!" moment, and then the nervous nellies who may be teetering on the edge of listening to us will shy away, and we lose them.

I still don't believe those were Palestinian child brides in that video. If they had been any such thing, MEMRI would have instantly subtitled it and promoted it. Not only that, it was debunked by several trustworthy sources, at least one of them Israeli. It's been so long now that I don't remember the details, but they were people who understood Arabic and knew the local customs.


For those of us that prefer fact-based evidence over photo-trickery in propaganda films, I suggest reading the Holy Qur'an, or the authentic quotes from this grim history of 1400 yrs of the 'Jihad-Crusade Warfare'..

Allah's Apostle said: "I have become victorious with terror."
Bukhari, Vol 4, Book 52, #220
"I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore, strike off their heads, and strike off every fingertip of them." -Qur'an 8:12
"Fight those who believe not in Allah, nor the last day, nor acknowledge the Religion of Truth,
even if they are People of the Book, until they pay the jizya (tax) with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued."
Qur'an 9:29
"The punishment of those who wage war against Allah, and his Messenger Muhammad, and strive for mischief in the land is: execution or crucifixion, or cutting off hands and feet from opposite sides,
etc Qur'an 5:33
