Surviving a Terrorist Attack: Deny Christ or Die

The objective of worldwide jihadist terrorism is on full display, but how will American elected leaders portray it? In this week's Kenyan mall attack, as the al-Shabaab jihadists quizzed shoppers of their knowledge of Islam, they killed those who failed the test -- the Christians.  Will Americans now be advised to memorize Koranic verses in order to survive terrorist attacks?
"The extremists are gaining ground rapidly. It is not just the poor but the rich as well who are rapidly coming under the influence of extremist ideology or becoming latent-radical."
-- Ayesha Siddiqa, a defense and security analyst, based in Islamabad, Pakistan

From Mali to Algeria, Nigeria to Kenya, violent Islamist groups - tapping into local poverty, conflict, inequality or exclusion but espousing a similar anti-Western, anti-Christian creed - are striking at state authority and international interests, both economic and political.

They "called on all Muslims to leave the shopping center," Israeli businessman Yariv Kedar wrote in an eyewitness account published by the Tel Aviv daily Yedioth Ahronoth.

Other survivors told reporters that those who identified themselves as Muslims were ordered to recite a verse from the Koran, or to name the Prophet Mohammed's mother. Those who could do so were allowed to go; those who failed the test were killed.

This religious factor is a common denominator of nearly all of the insurgencies and conflicts across the Sahel, northern Nigeria and the Sudans, into east Africa and the Horn of Africa. It follows the historical faultlines of where the mostly Islamicised north of the continent meets the predominantly Christian and non-Muslim south below the Sahara.

From "Pakistan Christians take to the streets after bombing" by Naila Inayat, Special for USA TODAY 9/23/13

In the wake of the worst ever attack on Pakistan's Christian minority . . . Critics worry that the government is only allowing the Islamists time to get stronger.

More than 85 people were killed at the All Saints Church in Peshawar in northwestern Pakistan on Sunday after a pair of suicide bombers targeted the Christian building, injuring hundreds of worshipers. A wing of the Tehrik-i-Taliban claimed it launched the attack.

Hundreds of Christians all over the country took to the streets. . . . In the southern port city of Karachi, a few hundred demonstrators chanted "Stop killing Christians!" and demanded that those who attacked their community be held accountable.

The bombing of the church was just the latest act of terrorism to set off a crisis in Pakistan over the Taliban [and al-Qaeda].

Earlier this year, a mob in Lahore burnt down two churches and more than a hundred Christian houses, and dozens of other attacks have taken place since June.

From "Dying Nigerian Pastor: 'I Will Never Deny My Savior'" by Katherine Russell, Christian Post 8/2/13

On May 14, in plain view of his wife and one daughter, suspected Boko Haram Islamic terrorist members gunned down Rev. Faye Pama Musa, general overseer of the Rhema Assembly International Church and secretary of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Borno state.

“Today you are a dead man. Call your Jesus to help you, Mr. CAN man,” one of the terrorists shouted.

Musa did not give up without a fight. While wrestling with the three men, he continually called upon Jesus [saying] “I will never deny my Savior.”

According to the Associated Press, since 2010 the Boko Haram network is responsible for the killings of more than 1,600 people, many of them Christians.
