Four Christians arrested for “proselytizing” in Benghazi

But I thought Islam was tolerant of other religions?

FOX NEWS – Four foreigners were arrested in Libya on suspicion of distributing books about Christianity and proselytizing, a Libyan police spokesman said on Saturday.

Police spokesman Hussein bin Hamid said the suspects were from South Africa, Egypt and South Korea, and one held both Swedish and U.S. nationality. The Swedish Foreign Ministry confirmed that a dual national Swedish-American citizen was arrested while traveling on a U.S. passport. The U.S. Embassy in Libya declined comment.

Spreading Christianity is a crime in the predominantly Muslim North African county.

The four were arrested in the eastern city of Benghazi on Tuesday and are under investigation for printing and distributing books that proselytize Christianity. Police said they found 45,000 books in their possession and that another 25,000 have already been distributed.

Bin Hamid said that embassy officials have visited them. He would not say where they are being held.

Oh my gosh! You mean they were giving people books? OH THE HUMANITY!!!!!!!!

    They’re doing the Lord’s work and they will be rewarded in Heaven.

    Brave, obediant, blessed servants of the only true God. May the Lord protect them.

      Amen Sober.

      Couldn’t agree more with you.

      Indeed, they are blessed to suffer for the Lord’s sake!

    Muslims know that if the truth gets out, their faux “religion” is finished.

    • abe-froman

      So true – ISLAM cannot stand on its own & neither can the muslim savages; they can’t mount an or defend any questioning if the absurdity of ISLAM ….its a sham and unconceivable that so many innocents lose their lives to this tyrannical totalitarian ideology disguised as “religion”

      • Sober_Thinking

        Absolutely LOVE the name (abe-froman)!

        Brilliant. 🙂

  • virginiagentleman1

    How dare those Christians spread Jesus’ words of love, caring, tolerance and life amoungst the heathen and intolerent muslims!

    Just who do they think they are anyway, christians? OH! WAIT! Never mind!

    • Rshill7

      If a group of Muslims were filming a movie entitled “Off With His Head” and I had top billing as head contributor. I would have to say, “Hey! That’s not very Christian of you!” And when they said, “We’re Muslims”, I suppose I’d have to say, “Well then, my bad…go right ahead.”

      Not really, I’d shoot ’em until they all weighed several ounces more than they did before.

      • virginiagentleman1

        Just be sure that you dip the bullet heads in pigs blood first, ManBear. I hear those muslims have quite a thing about pigs and their blood! Just sayin’.

        • Rshill7

          Blessings to you from our humble Christian home big brudder 🙂

        • johnfromjersey

          I’d rather just dip them in pigs blood, then, set them on fire.

          • Rshill7

            Yeah but they’d be squirmin’ around and stuff. How do you get around that?

            You know what? I saw some Muslims in a film today cutting off the head of two civilians in Syria. If you haven’t a match, let me know. Ask for a match, I’ll give you a propane torch suitable for brazing with.

            You know, in the natural, man would have to think, “you know what…let these people go to hell.”

            This is where the term supernatural comes from.

    There was a day that one phone call would have sent them home. Today one call from DC seals their fate.

    Instead our SoS is championing Global Warming and publicly blaming our own Congress as a threat to our security.

    • Why was my first thought about a trade. Blind sheik for a Swedish/American?

      • TexasPGRRider

        A MAIN Objective of BPAlgeria assault !!! Thank Goodness they didn`t wait for B.O. to weigh in on the situation. CUDDOS to the action taken, without hesitation, to secure the gas facility and take those turbin cowboys (good number of which bragged about being part of Bengazi assault) OUT !!!!

    • Yep and taking shots at Republicans. Wonder how all the Republicans like the thanks they just got from him directly in the teeth?!


    • Rshill7

      Our own congress is a threat to our security. It has nothing to do with global warming though, which is what you were concentrating on I think.

      It has to do with milk and toast, and the foolish mixing of the two.

      • virginiagentleman1

        ROFLMAO! Yer nutz sir, and very humorous! Mixing ‘milk’ and ‘toast’!!!!!!!!!! lol!!

  • Islam…the religion of piece.

    • virginiagentleman1

      Isn’t that, pieces, milady? As in many pieces?

      • Well pieces is what you end up with when they are done. 😉

    • abe-froman

      As in “piece of sh!t”

      • Rshill7

        Ooops. Open just wide enough for this skinny little hotel bar of Dial please.



  • Godisright

    4 of our citizens are killed – Obama does nothing…
    These people in Libya know that they can get away with anything and will- as long as this jerk, the condemner and cheat, is around.
    But then again, what difference does it really make?

  • bbitter

    Alright, Scoop, from now on, whenever you post a “But I thought Islam was tolerant/peaceful/respectful/etc…” I’m going to only cite ‘taqiyya and Kitman’ and then say one thing:

    ….(stage whisper): Psssst! THEY LIED! And Islam teaches them to.

  • Rshill7

    When will Islam admit that Allah’s given name is Satan, aka, Lucifer?

    Anyone ever look at the name Barack Obama as understood in Hebrew? Nevermind, you probably wouldn’t like it.

    We have an epidemic in this country as most of you know. It isn’t aids, or any other disease you’ve heard of.

    It’s stupidity. Repetitive, contagious, terminal, stupidity…with a heaping helping of evil.

      You peaked my interest so I looked it up. Interesting.

      He is heading to Israel just before Passover. Wonder if he will go to the Temple Mount? The timing is quite telling!

    Matthew 5:10-12

    “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven….”

    Romans 8:35-39

    “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? …Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

    2 Timothy 3:1-5, 10-14

    “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God…. And from such people turn away!

    “…all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. But you must continue in the things which you have learned …”

  • clevonlittle

    hey……….. I thought you guys were supposed to leave alone ” people of the Book ” ?

    • tinlizzieowner

      Well, ‘their book’ anyway. 😉

  • TexasPGRRider

    Guess we need to notify Fox that promoting Christianity in ANY muzlim sharia country is a crime !!!!

  • tinlizzieowner

    Our government hasn’t figured out yet that Christians aren’t welcome in Benghazi.
    They’re just a ‘bump in the road’ according to Obama.


    …ISLAM = EVIL = ENEMY .” (period)

  • Cindy09

    That have already distributed 25,000 books??!!

    Thank you, Jesus!!

  • notebene

    The religion of pieces must exist with it’s zombie followers in complete ignorance. Wouldn’t want anyone to find out that God is not a pedophile “prophet” would they? This is fascism, not a religion. Worse yet, our idiot Imposter in Chief is one of them!

  • Ray

    How many mohammedans were arrested for proselytizer in the US?

    • tinlizzieowner

      One less than the number of American Presidents that have held a Ramadan celebration on White House turf. 😉

  • 1endtimes2020

    Those dysfunctional devils’ disciples have too much time on their hands, and nothing better to do with it. They will face the consequences of their actions sooner than they realize.

  • Muslims Behead two Christians in NJ.
    are Americans listening?

  • Spreading Christianity (or any other Religion for that matter) is against the law in ANY Muslim Country but don’t tell that to the Libs or they’ll hit you with some PC crap about it being part of their culture or something.

  • Conniption Fitz

    Islam must be a form of insanity not yet listed in the DSM.

    For example: “Pakistan accuses its own ambassador of blasphemy for discussing blasphemy law.” (Yahoo News)

  • sickandtired

    Wake up American politicians…..the devil is at the door and the door’s open!
