UCMINISTRIES: The ongoing bravery of this Christian woman should be an encouragement to us all.  Yet her suffering is just one of many who are undergoing similar treatment at the hands of fanatical Moslems.  As of today she is in isolation in fear for her life, whilst Moslem teachers have taken out a bounty for her death.  So even if she is released her life is in danger.  So when people tell you that Islam is a religion of peace and reconciliation remember this story and others like her.   

Mat 5: 10-12 Blessed [are] they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye, when [men] shall revile you, and persecute [you], and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great [is] your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you

Math 5: 12 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

Death row: Mother-of-five Asia Bibi has been condemned to hang after insulting the prophet Muhammad

A Christian woman on death row in Pakistan after being convicted of blasphemy has told how she must cook her own meals for fear of being poisoned.

In her first interview since being condemned to hang, Asia Bibi, 46, described the miserable conditions she has suffered as she waits for an opportunity to appeal.

Since her arrest in 2009, Mrs Bibi, a mother of five, has been held in the high-security District Jail Seikhupura, 22 miles north-west of Lahore.

‘I am allowed to go out for only 30 minutes every day, and allowed to meet my family for one hour every Tuesday,’ she told Christian group Life For All, in an interview seen by the Daily Telegraph.

‘I am given raw material to cook for myself, since the administration fears I might be poisoned, as other Christians accused of blasphemy were poisoned or killed in the jail.’

Hostility towards Christians in Pakistan is rife. Mrs Bibi told in the interview how one of her guards had tried been suspended after trying to strangle her.

“Islamic clerics had offered a bounty of about $ 8,000 to anyone who would kill her”

Mrs Bibi, a farm worker from rural Punjab, was first detained in 2009. She is accused of defiling the name of the prophet Mohammed during an argument with Muslim co-workers.

She denies the charge, but was sentenced to death after the case went to trial. She is now waiting for her appeal to be heard at Lahore’s High Court

 Two of Mrs Bibi’s supporters have been assassinated this year, including Salman Taseer, governor of Punjab, who was shot dead by one of his own bodyguards.

Mrs Bibi said she was praying for her freedom to see her family again, adding: ‘I am given raw material to cook for myself, since the administration fears I might be poisoned, as other Christians accused of blasphemy were poisoned or killed in the jail.’

As one person puts it “Where full-on Sharia is enforced, “blasphemers” get the death penalty. Here in America, your character is assassinated”  >>>>>Coming to a town near you<<<<<<

Freedom and liberty is something Islam hates because it gets exposed.  Democracy is just an alien invention.  If we dont fight to keep it, before long we might loose it.   The one think we must fight is to be heard , to proclaim and to expose, and compromise is not an option.
