PRISONER ALERT

Held 1917 days

Asia Bibi

Arrested June 2009 in Pakistan
Asia Bibi, a 37-year-old Pakistani woman from the village of Ittanwali, was arrested by police on Friday, June 19, 2009. Asia (also called Asia Noreen) is the wife of 50-year-old Ashiq Masih, and their family is one of only three Christian families in a village of 1,500 families.

Many of the local women, including Asia, work on the farm of Muslim landowner Muhammad Idrees. During their work, many of the Muslim women have pressured Asia to renounce Christianity and accept Islam. In June, the pressure became especially strong.

On Friday, June 19, there was an intense discussion among the women about their faith. The Muslim women told Asia about Islam. Asia responded by telling them about her faith in Christ. Asia told the Muslim women Christ had died on the cross for sins, then asked them what Mohammad had done for them, according to VOM sources. She told them Jesus is alive, but Mohammad is dead. “Our Christ is the true prophet of God,” she reportedly told them, “and yours is not true.”

Upon hearing this, the Muslim women became angry and began to beat Asia. Then some men took her and locked her in a room. They announced from the mosque loudspeakers that she would be punished by having her face blackened and being paraded through the village on a donkey. Local Christians informed the police, who took Asia into custody before the Muslims could carry out their plan. She was held at the police station in Nankana city. Christians there urged the police not to file blasphemy charges, but police claimed they were under pressure from local Muslim leaders.

Seventeen months after Asia’s arrest, she was convicted of violating subsection C of Pakistan’s 295 blasphemy law – blasphemy against the prophet Muhammad – and was sentenced to death. No Christian in Pakistan has ever been executed under the blasphemy law, but in several cases, extremists have murdered Christians after their release from prison. Asia’s conviction and death sentence have brought international attention to the country’s blasphemy laws. Christians have called for Asia’s release and for a repeal of the laws, while extremists in Pakistan continue to demand that she be executed.

The Voice of the Martyrs urges Christians around the world to pray for Asia Bibi and her family.

Hearing Postponed at Husband’s Request – 9/9/2014

A court hearing for Asia Bibi yesterday (Sept. 9, 2014) was postponed again, but this time at the request of her husband, Ashiq Masih. Ashiq submitted the application for adjournment because his private attorney was not present, though Asia’s legal team was there. Though the judge was ready to hear the case, the hearing will be postponed until Oct. 16, 2014. The Pakistan Christian Post reported that the judge issued an order saying that the Oct. 16 hearing would be final and there would be no other adjournment.

Appeal Delayed for Fifth Time – May 2014

Asia Bibi was due to appeal her death sentence for blasphemy on May 27, but just like the last four occasions, the hearing was cancelled. No new date was set.

Hearing Postponed for Fourth Time – April 2014

For the fourth time this year, a court hearing for Asia Bibi has been postponed. Asia has been waiting in limbo for years since her June 2009 arrest while her case drags through the appeals process — and multiple delays. Hearings set for Feb. 14, March 17, March 26 and now April 14 have all been postponed for various reasons. No future trial date has been set.

Pray for Asia Bibi Hearing

Asia Bibi, a Pakistani Christian sentenced to death on a blasphemy conviction, is scheduled to appear in court on March 26 for an appellate hearing. An earlier court appearance, scheduled for March 17, was postponed because of the absence of one of two presiding judges. Pakistani law requires that two judges be present for all court proceedings in death penalty cases. Please pray for Asia Bibi as well as her husband and two daughters. Pray also for authorities involved in the case; they face numerous pressures.

Asia’s Husband Visits Once a Month – October 2013

Since Asia was transferred to a new prison, her husband has been able to visit her once a month. It’s an expensive, arduous journey for him, but it is an encouraging time for both of them. Asia’s two daughters have not yet been able to make the trip, but VOM is arranging to have them visit as soon as their school schedules allow.

Asia Transferred to a New Prison

Asia Bibi was transferred to a new prison in June, leaving her five hours away from her family. She was previously only an hour away. Her husband, Ashiq, met her on June 6, 2013. She again requested prayer, and told her husband she’s been sick and in a lot of pain. Asia continues to await word on her appeal against her blasphemy sentence.

Groups to Congress: No Taxpayer Funds for Biased, Politicized Middle East Studies

“In its current state, federal education programs such as Title VI work to subsidize the assault on Israel and America, consequently making it difficult to support as it only benefits programs and professors who aim not to educate, but instead make ideological lamentations against the West with the support of federal dollars,” said Asaf Romirowsky, executive director of Scholars for Peace in the Middle East.

Koskinen: ‘Hard Drive Crashes Continue As We Speak’

Patrick Howley

Internal Revenue Service (IRS) commissioner John Koskinen testified Wednesday that the IRS did not save any of the information on Lois Lerner’s destroyed Blackberry and that there is no outside system to store agency emails.

“Hard drive crashes continue as we speak,” Koskinen admitted at a House Oversight and Government Reform subcommittee hearing when asked if any computers had recently crashed under his watch.

Koskinen admitted that destroying records would be an act “not consistent with the law,” but maintained that there’s no evidence that the IRS intentionally destroyed records.

AOL Headline: ‘Global Warming Likely to Cause Colder And Snowier Winters, Scientists Say’

‘Benghazi Alumni Group’ Now Wields ‘Diabolical’ Influence at K Street Firm, Witness Attorney Charges

Elizabeth Kreft

In recent months, State Department whistleblowers have come forward with stories of harassment, demotions and politicized cover-ups. They fear their professional credibility will be forever tarnished by “twisted half-truths” conjured up by corrupt foreign service officials and say they are fearful that their families will also be targeted for scrutiny and financial penalties.

And that’s just what they’re willing to say when they aren’t hiding in fear of harsher retribution.

Multiculturalism is a failure

By: Walter Williams

German Chancellor Angela Merkel declared that in Germany, multiculturalism has “utterly failed.” Both Australia’s ex-prime minister John Howard and Spain’s ex-prime minister Jose Maria Aznar reached the same conclusion about multiculturalism in their countries. British Prime Minister David Cameron has warned that multiculturalism is fostering extremist ideology and directly contributing to homegrown Islamic terrorism. UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage said the United Kingdom’s push for multiculturalism has not united Britons but pushed them apart. It has allowed for Islam to emerge despite Britain’s Judeo-Christian culture. Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair said the roots of violent Islamism are not “superficial but deep” and can be found “in the extremist minority that now, in every European city, preach hatred of the West and our way of life.”

The bottom line is that much of the Muslim world is at war with Western civilization. There’s no question that the West has the military might to thwart radical Islam’s agenda. The question up for grabs is whether we have the intelligence to recognize the attack and the will to defend ourselves from annihilation.

Feds in El Paso: Rep. O’Rourke Called to Ban Contact with JW

Federal law enforcement sources in El Paso say that a United States congressman called their office to prohibit contact with Judicial Watch in the aftermath of a disturbing story confirming that Islamic terrorists are operating in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez.

Sources tell JW that Beto O’Rourke, a Democrat who represents El Paso in the U.S. House of Representatives, telephoned the area offices of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and the U.S. Border Patrol (USBP) in an effort to identify—and evidently intimidate—sources that may have been used by JW. On August 29 JW reported that the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) is working in Juarez and planning to attack the United States with car bombs or other vehicle borne improvised explosive devices (VBIED).

Netanyahu: ‘We’ve Seen This Before. There’s a Master Race; Now There’s a Master Faith’

(CNSNews.com) –

In a speech on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu compared Islamist terrorist groups such as ISIS, Hamas and Hezbollah to Nazis: “We know this. We’ve seen this before. There’s a master race; now there’s a master faith.”

“The tactics are uniform. Terror first of all against your own people,” Netanyahu told attendees at the International Institute for Counter-Terrorism’s (ICT) 14th annual conference held at Herzliya, an Israeli technology center located about six miles north of Tel Aviv.

“There’s a master race; now there’s a master faith. And that allows you to do anything to anyone, but first of all to your own people and then to everyone else,” Netanyahu continued, in a reference to Nazi ideology stemming from Adolf Hitler’s belief, detailed in his speeches and writings, that Aryans were the “master race.”

Centers for Disease Control Quiet about Open Border Policy. Why?

By James Longstreet

Who is telling the Centers for Disease Control to stand down on illegal immigration?

Making certain that nefarious diseases do not enter our country should be integral to the workings of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). For logic would suggest that to control a disease, one must control its movement or introduction. When illegal immigrants flow into the United States, the CDC cannot do their job. For this reason alone, the CDC should be protesting that which is transpiring regarding illegal immigration. They should be demanding a secure border. The apparent conclusion is that this agency has been politicized. Just one more on the list.

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today released 94 pages of documents obtained from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) revealing that in the days leading up to the rollout of Obamacare, top Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) officials knew of massive security risks with Healthcare.gov and chose to roll out the website without resolving the problems. Detailed information regarding the security flaws, previously withheld from public disclosure, was released to Judicial Watch. Also released to Judicial Watch were “Sensitive Information – Special Handling” memos sent from CMS to Mitre Corporation, the Healthcare.gov security testing company, in which CMS rated “political … damage” and “public embarrassment to CMS” as factors in defining “Risk Rating” priorities.

‘It is the only nation state in the world with the official policy of banning all churches.

‘This is enforced even though there are over two million Christian foreign workers in that country. Those victimized are typically poor, from Asian and African countries with weak governments.’

Activists are now calling on the U.S. to use its considerable influence in the region to help secure the release of the incarcerated Christians.
