Stop the ‘CrISIS’


Originally posted in Rochester Media

Why are our Christian brothers and sisters being murdered so brutally? It sickens me that ISIS executed 30 Ethiopian Christians the other day. And while grieving for my fellow human beings, I am both angered and puzzled.

The terrorist organization known as ISIS are sociopaths. I have accepted the logic behind that. What I cannot accept is their inhumane reasoning to kill our brothers and sisters in the name of Islam. Have they forgotten that the first Muslims to find refuge away from persecution, found it under a Christian King in Abyssinia (today Ethiopia)? It was he who gave them asylum to live in peace.

How dare ISIS lay even a finger on any Ethiopian Christian let alone any Christian in this world. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association of Metro Detroit stands with our Christian brothers and sisters as we all cry out in one voice, “Stop the CrISIS.” Those Christians that were slain are true martyrs; not the barbaric suicide bombers that have no regard for humanity. To every Christian that mourns this day, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association of Metro Detroit also mourns with you.
