Protect Christians

The U.S. and U.N. Have Abandoned Christian Refugees

Six months ago, Secretary of State John Kerry officially designated Islamic State as "responsible for genocide" against Christians, Yazidis and other vulnerable groups in areas under ISIS control in Syria and Iraq. So why has the Obama administration entrusted the survival of these people-and so much valuable American aid-to a troubled office at the United Nations, which, like its parent organization, has never even acknowledged that the genocide exists?

The State Department says it is helping religious minorities who have fled, along with millions of other displaced Syrians and Iraqis, primarily through the U.N. America has sent over half of $5.6 billion in humanitarian aid earmarked for Syrians since 2012 to the U.N.

Nigerian Gov. Sets Up Rehabilitation Program for Boko Haram Fighters Who Surrender and Repent

A military coalition of nearly 9,000 soldiers from Cameroon, Nigeria, Chad, Niger and Benin has recently made some major strides in their fight against the radical Islamic terror group Boko Haram, and now, they're asking militants to give up and repent. Boko Haram has killed 10s of thousands in the region, displaced millions and has committed horrific atrocities including mass kidnappings, indiscriminate murders, village raids, mass rape and dozens of suicide bombings.

As the military force begins to take back territory and free thousands of captives, they want to strike a deal with fighters. They've recently announced "Operation Safe Corridor," which will allow repentant terrorists to enter into a camp designed to bring them back into normal life.

How to protect Canada from a crippling attack

While both Canada and the United States are currently vulnerable to an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack that has the potential to destabilize our power grid, water systems, food supply chain and more, the solution is relatively simple. But first the issue needs to become a priority for Canadian politicians.

Part one of this two-part feature explained former CIA analyst Dr. Peter Pry’s attempts to educate policy-makers and the military on the need to protect our electrical grid. If an enemy detonated a nuclear missile above the skies of North America, it could take out our grid for months. Countries like North Korea and various terrorist groups have already shown they can successfully launch EMP missiles.

“This is a bigger threat than the classic nuclear war we talk about,” Pry explained during a recent visit to Toronto. “It will kill a lot more people. One bomb will basically end your civilization."

Twenty nine children among 72 killed in Sunday's suicide bombing after Taliban jihadi blew himself up next to SWINGS at a park in Pakistan

More than 70 people, including 29 children, have been killed by a Taliban suicide bomber who targeted Christians near a children's playground in a park in Pakistan.

Some 300 people were injured when explosives packed with ball bearings ripped through crowds near the children's swings in the Gulshan-e-Iqbal Park, in Lahore, where many had gathered to celebrate Easter.

Jamaat-ul-Ahrar, a splinter group affiliated with the Pakistani Taliban, has claimed responsibility for the attack, adding: 'The target was Christians.'

Senior police official Haider Ashraf confirmed that the death toll had risen to 72 on Monday morning, adding the majority of the dead were Muslims.

Step up efforts to secure pastor's release from North Korean jail

Now that there is "proof of life" in North Korea, people close to jailed Pastor Hyeon Soo Lim are urging Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Canadian authorities to "step up" efforts to get the Mississauga man released.

"We were so glad to see the video of him," said Lisa Pak, spokesman for the Light Korean Presbyterian Church in Mississauga, which has been pressing for contact since he was sentenced to life in prison last month.

Just Saturday, I interviewed Pak about how they had not heard one thing about his location or status.
