Editor: The American Church needs to wake up to what’s going on through the world as the time of the Lord draws near yet many are yet asleep. U.S./European foreign policy strategies in the Middle East and Africa is hiding behind their beast known as ISIS/Al Qaeda and their child terror groups in order to disrupt whole nations who stand in the way of the Harlot mentioned in Revelation 17…

Christian migrants and refugees in Libya are at particular risk in Libya, both from armed groups aiming to impose their own interpretation of Islamic law and from the authorities and lawless gangs. Christians from Nigeria, Eritrea, Ethiopia and Egypt have been abducted, tortured and killed. Recently at least 49 Christians, mostly from Egypt and Ethiopia, were beheaded and shot in summary killings claimed by the Islamic State armed group.

Charles, 30, from Nigeria, told Amnesty he was forced to flee to Europe by boat last month after being abducted and assaulted a number of times by members of a criminal gang in the coastal city of Zuwara. He had gone there to escape indiscriminate shelling and fighting in Tripoli. He said:

“In Zuwara, sometimes young men would come to our house to steal our money. They would come with guns. As a black man, I cannot go to complain to the police. I went to complain at the police station twice but they did not believe me. They refused to listen to me. They call us slaves. I am a Christian and that’s why the men would always come to our house and attack us. We were three Christian Nigerians living in the same house … In October 2014 four men kidnapped me … because they saw I was carrying a bible.”

They took away his money and phone, and held him for two days while they tortured and beat him until he finally managed to escape one night through the window.

“Such horror stories about the dangers driving migrants and refugees to flee Libya highlight the continuing desperate need to save lives in the Mediterranean. European leaders must ensure that refugees and migrants fleeing conflict and human rights abuses are never pushed back to Libya,” added Phil Luther.
