ARAB NATIONS MODIFY DEMANDS TO END QATARI CRISIS
20 JUNE 2017 – The four Arab nations leading a boycott of Qatar are no longer insisting it comply with a list of 13 specific demands they tabled last month. Diplomats from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt told reporters at the UN they now wanted it to accept six broad principles. These include commitments to combat terrorism and extremism and to end acts of provocation and incitement. There was no immediate comment from Qatar, which denies aiding terrorists. It has refused to agree to any measures that threaten its sovereignty or violate international law, and denounced the “siege” imposed by its neighbours. The restrictions put in place six weeks ago have forced the gas-rich emirate to import food by sea and air to meet the basic needs of its population of 2.7 million.
CHURCHES BURNED AND CHRISTIANS TARGETED IN INDIA?
THE FOLLOWING MESSAGE IS CIRCULATING ON SOCIAL MEDIA:
“Brothers and sisters, urgent prayer request. Pray for the Church in India. Buddhist extremists in India burned down 20 churches last night. Tonight want to destroy more than 200 churches in Olisabang province. They want to kill 200 missionaries within the next 24 hours. All Christians are hiding in villages… Pray for them and send this message to all Christians you know.
"THOU SHALT NOT PREACH WITHOUT BEING REGISTERED"
On 12 July the CRL revealed its report on the “Commercialisation of religions and the exploitation of people’s beliefs”. Addressing an issue that lies so close to the hearts of millions of people requires basic knowledge, Godly discernment and Christ-like virtues. The sensitive issues of religious tolerance and freedom of association (or non-association for that matter) – central to most communities (whether Christian or non-Christian) – necessitate a ‘non-toxic’ response that will reflect the heart of a crucified Christ who never demanded His rights but died for the dignity of those He came to serve.
