Seven Christians Executed in Libya

Print Friendly

Libyan authorities came across the slain bodies of seven Christian Copts in the region of Jarutha, less than 20 miles west of Benghazi, on Monday afternoon.

According to Libyan authorities, “The slain were killed by gunshots all over their bodies.”

Pictures (reproduced above and below) confirm that the men were killed “execution-style,” including one Copt whose head and face were partially shot off.

The ages of the dead range between 17 and 25.

Since the ouster of the decades-long dictator of Libya, Gaddafi, Christians in general, Copts from neighboring Egypt in particular, have been suffering abuses at the hands of the empowered Islamists — from evicted nuns, to Christians arrested, tortured and killed for “proselytizing,” to the bombing of the few churches in Libya.

This latest atrocity is simply following an increasingly familiar pattern.

    How can there be ANY question as to the perpetrators or their motive, let alone who supplied & backed their rampage… Hillary and her transparent denials have about run their course, followed by the non-existent executive branch vagaries… thus leaving Copts and other Christians to the radical islamists that they support. Is it any wonder that bodies are covering the fields; as a fellow Christian I am appalled by the deafening silence coming from the State Department et al, though if it were those muslims they supported, the cries would be screaming from every pore of the MSM throughout West…

      Even sadder is seeing commenters here from Christian ethnic groups nastily attacking each other. They are the real allies of Islam.

      • John A. Patriot

        Agreed, we should all be on the same side… that of the righteous, against the sub-human atrocities’ perpetrated by lslam across the world

          Brace yourself John, the terrible thing is that it is just the beginning of pain. Be strong, do not count this life for much. If they come to kill they’re doing themselves a disfavour. If you are in the Lord you’re safe, you have not lost anything though they would take life away (Rev 6:11). Jesus spoke to us about those things. Let’s be strengthen by the dear brothers and sisters who have been taken away (Heb 11:40).

          Rev 6:10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?

          2Pe 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
          May the Lord give us strength in soul and spirit. Amen!

    The British media are also not saying anything about these murders of Christians , by the black Muslims. Sky News telephoned me about my comments that I have been making on my blog, about these murders, and said “Gaddafi, had to be got rid of, he was an evil man, killing to take power, and killing to keep control”.

    My reply to this low life was ” Gaddafi, did not kill any person or fire one shot to get rid of the corrupt Libyan Royal family; how many did your American friends murder to move Gaddafi? It was Hilary Clinton that murdered Gaddafi, and all those other Libyan people, so she could take Libyan oil”, he would not go into a debate on the subject. But then who owns the New York Times, and Sky News?

    I’m fed up with seeing this!!!! No excuse for this! Except that hagel and Obama self proclaimed Muslims. Are ok with this garbage and encourage it via monetary support!! Our country is infiltrated by Muslim extremists!!!! This must all end!!

  • ColoursFed

    The British government also backed Obama in Libya, Cameron and Clegg are anti Christ, as is Milliband the Jew!

  • ColoursFed

    Ex – British servicemen have gone to the USA to bring back Hilary Clinton, for the trial of 2514 murders of British soldiers, that she funded and sponsored the IRA to do. The trial will be conducted has a military court and by ex – Servicemen. Bill Clinton is to be taken in London, where he looks after his son. The death penalty is on the end of this trial!

      like all bullies you hate it when they fight back. That’s what’s really bugging you Brits that relish the ‘good old days’ when t’was a lot easier to push the Irish around. More important you become much less effective as counterjihadists today. Give up the ghost!

      • logdon

        An old Fenian spouts his drivel,eh?

        However now that the EU is effectively running Ireland, not much of the blather there is there Paddy?


        • Paddy O’Connor

          We’re happy enough back in Europe where we belong..away from Bully Brit rule…though we pity you guys goin’ under to Sharia Law. No doubt you’ll be down on your knees to us again just like the First World War!

          • logdon

            Ah yes, that treacherous episode.

          • Paddy O’Connor

            And ingratitude for the 50,000 who died…

          • ColoursFed

            So you do remember that you Irish scum joined with Hitler to murder 15 million people! When these Muslims start, you Irish are not excluded. this Englishman will not bend a finger to help you scum. Its the Roman Catholics all over the world that are going around murdering people, how many have you murdered Irish?

        • John Scott

          Considering the way the English treated the Irish through history /and if one were to generalize) you deserved everything bad that happened to you at the hands of the Irish. / Outsider, non-catholic.

    Brave young men! Taking a bullet for Jesus! At the same time Christianity is growing in North Africa. In the west Christianity is in decline and still more people believe in Jesus the son of God then ever before because the gospel is spreading to the nations. I will pray for their loved ones!

    • John Scott

      Christianity is not growing there! its dying from these wars. these Christians are the descendants of the original population. Christianity started in north Africa and the middle east.

      • Martin Grimes

        More converted Muslims are taking the gospel into the Maghreb. I do not assume great numbers, never the less The Word is getting out. As for those Christians that have been martyred by ‘the religion of peace’, they are with the Lord.

    I am concerned about something that has come to my attention and thought perhaps here would be a good place to ask.Has anyone noticed Muslims pinning Christians Pinterest boards,like tagging them? I ask because I noticed a Muslim woman pinned to one of my boards about War movies.’Battle of the Bulge’.I was curious about that and looked to see what other pins she had,none.Just one pin,mine.Most of my other boards have strong Christian references:Favorite Bible verses,Christian adoption,favorite Hymns,American soldiers praying before the flag of the USA.Is there reason for me to be concerned? I would sure like some feedback.Thank you.

    • Martin Grimes

      I have given this some thought myself over time. Now, we do have a choice do we not? We can stay silent or we can speak out. I have read most of your comments on Disqus and you speak for Jesus Christ who is my Lord also. I have done my homework and come to the confident conclusion that the The Bible is true. You speak with love. You speak the truth. The world hates Jews and mocks Christians. More Muslims are choosing Christ as their savior than ever before. If she is tagging you then she is listening to you. May the One True God, in three persons continue to bless you. In closing The Battle of The Bulge is a great movie and worth watching!

      • Tammy Noel Smith

        Your answer gave me such encouragement and peace.I will pray for this woman,that she may find Jesus through my Pinterest boards.Thank you Mr. Grimes!

    This is heartbreaking. We can blame whoever we want, certainly the current US administration that supports this violence either directly or indirectly and I’m ashamed of that. Vote the hypocrites out! That’s our only hope.

  • Stephen Powell

    The real outrage is that under current US immigration/refugee policy their Islamist murderers can apply for political asylum in the USA, all expenses paid, and reasonably expect to be considered. Christians who are being hunted down and slaughtered are not considered for political asylum because that would require the Obama administration to admit that Islam is on a murdurous rampage contrary to his politically correct dogma of ‘peaceful Islam’, and they might say embarrassing things to the media after they arrive.

  • Randall Hurd

    Is there some way to repost these a couple hundred times all over Nancy Pelosi twitter and others, where she’s selling these murderers as humanitarians ?

  • Bblthmpr

    Obama is openly at war with the saints. Every middle east campaign he gets involved with and every government he flips to so called democracy ends up killing the saints.
    His Jihad is showing. The Lord rebuke him.
