Ethiopia: Muslim mobs stone Christians
Guess this is the “thanks” the descendants of the great “Negus” — the king of Ethiopia during Muhammad’s time who provided shelter and refuge to the first Muslim community — get in return. “Muslim Mob Stones Christians in Eastern Ethiopia,” by Michael Ireland, for Worthy News, July 30:Â ETHIOPIA (ANS) — A mob of Islamic extremists stoned Seid Ahmed and Musa Ibrahim [names changed for security reasons] in Jijiga, a city on border with Somalia. The attack is the latest attack against Christians in Ethiopia where the spread of radical Islam is fueling the persecution of Christians.
Â “Hussein says he doesn’t face Mecca when he prays because his God is omnipresent and he can face anywhere to pray,” Racho recounts the incident. “[T]he extremists were very much enraged by his comments, and they killed him.”
Upon learning that her husband had been shot to death, Hussein’s wife went into premature labor and delivered a stillborn baby.
Hussein had been working as a teacher and was described as extremely successful in evangelizing the community.
